Ja Rule: I Don't Care About Gay Marriage

9/26/2007 5:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ja RuleAfter showing his true colors in Complex magazine by doing his best Isaiah Washington impression and rattling off homophobic comments, failed rapper Ja Rule is trying to change his tune -- sorta!

In an interview with Spinner.com, the 31-year-old says his homophobic remarks were taken out of context. Mmm hmmm! Regarding gay marriage, Ja says,"It's really not my business. I really could care less." Lovely. The father of three adds, "I have relatives that are homosexuals and, you know, they come over for Christmas, hang out." Bah humbug.

It's truly heartwarming when people realize the error of their ways.

Genesis 2:24 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. [NIV]

Leviticus 18:22 Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable. [NIV]

Leviticus 20:13 If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads. [NIV]

Romans 1:26-27 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. [27] In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. [NIV]

1 Cor. 6:9-10 Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders [10] nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

WE CAN THINK WHAT WE WANT ABOUT GAY MARRIAGE, BUT READ ABOVE WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT IT. THATS WHAT MATTERS.

"1 Cor. 6:9-10 Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God?

[NIV]"

So why don't you pay out on adulterers or thieves or the greedy or drunkards or slanderers or swindlers as much as you do homosexuals? It's because you're LOOKING for a reason to hate them, to make yourself seem higher than them.

I think also that if you think you have such an inside-out back-to-front knowledge of the Bible, then you would also be able to acknowledge that anyone who accepts Christ into their lives and asks to be forgiven WILL be accepted into the Kingdom of God.

All sins are equal in the eyes of God, and all you who are putting down others are sinning (treat your neighbour as you would like to be treated...). Therefore homosexuals have just as much chance of getting to Heaven as you do, my friend.

Overview of Leviticus 20:13:
This is almost identical to Leviticus 18:22. In transliterated Hebrew, the verse is written: "V'ish asher yishkav et zachar mishk'vei ishah to'evah asu shneihem mot yumatu d'meihem bam." However, it adds a compulsory death penalty to the participants. In various translation the passage has been translated:

ASV: (American Standard Version, 1901) "And if a man lie with mankind, as with womankind, both of them have committed abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."
Darby: (J.N. Darby Translation, 1890): "And if a man lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall certainly be put to death; their blood is upon them."
ESV: (English Standard Version): "If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them."
HNV: (Hebrew Names Version): "If a man lies with a male, as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."
KJV: (King James Version): "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them."
LB: (Living Bible): "The penalty for homosexual acts is death to both parties. They have brought it upon themselves."
NASB: (New American Standard Bible): "'If {there is} a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them. "
Net Bible: "If a man has sexual intercourse with a male as one has sexual intercourse with a woman, the two of them have committed an abomination. They must be put to death; their blood guilt is on themselves." 1
NIV: (New International Version) "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads."
NKJV: (New King James Version) "If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them."
NLT: (New Living Translation): "The penalty for homosexual acts is death to both parties. They have committed a detestable act, and are guilty of a capital offense."
RSV: (Revised Standard Version): "If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death; their blood is upon them."
Webster: (Noah Webster Version, 1833): "If a man also shall lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood [shall be] upon them."
Young: (Robert Young Literal Translation, 1898) "And a man who lieth with a male as one lieth with a woman; abomination both of them have done; they are certainly put to death; their blood [is] on them.

The only view point in the matter is what God has said. We should love the sinner, regardless of his sin, but we should not condone any sin and that includes homosexuality which God says is an abomination to Him. The biblical word for this gross sin is sodomy. The sodomite of the O.T. refers to male prostitution and homosexual moral perversion practiced in connection with idolatry (De. 23:17; 1 Ki. 14:24; 15:12; 22:46; 2 Ki. 23:7). The same Hebrew word is translated "unclean" (Job 36:14). The term is connected with the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah and has come to be identified with homosexuality and moral perversion in general. The 1828 Webster dictionary defined "sodomy" as "a crime against nature." The Webster's Deluxe Unabridged Dictionary of 1983 defines sodomy as "any sexual intercourse regarded as abnormal, as between persons of the same sex, especially males, or between a person and an animal." The term is descriptive of the moral perversion of the city of Sodom (Ge. 19; Jude 7).
Some contend that the Bible only condemns prostitution and forced immorality, and that sodomy, or homosexuality, in general, is not addressed in the Word of God. That this is not true is evident by the terminology used in the following passages of Scripture. The language the Holy Spirit uses in the N.T. to describe same-sex relations proves that God considers this a great wickedness, whether or not it is done with consent--"uncleanness" (Ro. 1:24); "dishonour their own bodies between themselves" (Ro. 1:24); "vile affections" (Ro. 1:26); "that which is against nature" (Ro. 1:26); "that which is unseemly" (Ro. 1:27); "reprobate mind" (Ro. 1:28); "effeminate" (1 Co. 6:9); "abusers of themselves with mankind" (1 Co. 6:9); "inordinate affection" (Col. 3:5); "them that defile themselves with mankind" (1 Ti. 1:10); "filthy conversation" (2 Pe. 2:7); "going after strange flesh" (Jude 7). Under the Mosaic law homosexuality required the death penalty (Le. 18:22-29; 20:13). The terminology used in the passages in Leviticus describe and condemn homosexuality in general--man lying with man, and woman lying with woman.

He never even said he hated gays. He just didn't want his kids seeing two guys making out on MTV.
Ja Rule isn't really a "failed" rapper either considering he's sold over 30 million albums. I don't even like his music, just saying. He's more succesful than any of the douchebags at TMZ.
