How do you understand
If a man still prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall say to him, "You shall not live, because you have spoken a lie in the name of the Lord." When he prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall thrust him through. Zechariah
13:3 (kill all 'false' prophets)
If a man lies with mankind as he lieth with a woman, they have both commited an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
Leviticus 20:13 (kill all male homosexuals)
These two of a redicilous amount of examples seem pretty clear to me.
