Funny thing about that...

There are 5 references to the 'disciple that Jesus loved'. Four of them use the verb form of Agape (Jn 13:23, 19:26, 21:7, 21:20), the fifth the verb form of Philia (Jn 20:2). The implication is that the relationship was NOT sexual in any sense that we would understand; the fact that we assume that it must be is a reflection of our culture rather than the culture of the day.

You say these things. However, cuddling with some dude on a couch is definitionally eros whether they are fucking or not; the term has a broader meaning than its english counterparts, likely to the greeks' credit.

So, really, all you've managed to do is to highlight the shame of later transcribers. And shown your own willingness to chuck the book itself.

Jesus, as recorded in the New Testament, was as much about afflicting the comfortable as he was about comforting the afflicted; he spends as much time casting woes (and directly asserting that those it is socially comfortable to even mention will never see heaven) as he does hanging out with sex offenders.

You, on the other hand, are ready at every turn to chuck the bible in the trash to comfort the comfortable and afflict the afflicted. The religion does not view you kindly at all.
