Nowhere in the Bible is homosexuality explicitly condemned, except in one particular instance which is, as a point of fact, either a mistranslation or a translation lost to time (I'm unaware if the word "abomination" was ever actually equivalent to "teovah" during the evolution of Latin or English). The people teaching religious studies, as well as all the other Christians and Orthodox Jews who go on about this, are really just parroting what they're told (Muslims I'm going to give a pass on this one since their book isn't supposed to be studied in its translated form, is meant to be taken literally, and most likely says something different, of which I am not aware.)
The original Torah was written in Aramaic, not in Hebrew. And all the Abrahamic religions, hell, ALL RELIGIONS in general are all simple interpretations of nature, human interaction, etc.

And, as I am a history and technology buff, the ancient Greeks fully accepted homosexual tendencies, and even allowed men to marry each other.
