Homophilia is the strong love for the same gender. It involves aesthetic, romantic and sexual attraction towards the same gender.
The issue here is that, this depravity goes against nature and the principles of a civilized society. Also at issue, is the perversion of the meaning of the words: sex, couples, and family.
For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper.
You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.
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 bloodguiltness is upon them.
A man having sexual intercourse with another man shall also pay the first amercement.
A virgin who pollutes (another) virgin must be fined two hundred (panas), pay the double of victim's (marriage-cost), and receive ten (beatings with a) rod. But a woman who pollutes a virgin shall instantly have (her head) shaved or two fingers cut off, and be made to ride (through the town) on a donkey.
If a man has shed his semen in non-human females, in a man, in menstruating females, in something other than a vagina, or in water, shall perform a Samtapana Krikkhra(subsisting on the 5 products of the cow)
If a twice-born(upper-caste) man unites sexually with a male, or with a female in a cart drawn by oxen, in water, or in the day-time, shall (always) bathe, dressed in his clothes.
