Letter: No woman-woman sex in Bible

June 27, 2013 

In regard to Pat Taylor-Cox’s letter of June 26, she describes Leviticus 20:13 as telling “about man lying with man and woman with woman.” I looked at this chapter and verse in 41 different translations (easy to do on the Internet) and none of them told of woman with woman.

For example, The King James Version says, “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.” 

There is no mention of woman on woman anywhere in that chapter. It does say that adulterers should be put to death, also wizards.
