Tops Are Just As Damned As Bottoms

God's Gentle People have re-translated the Bible to make it more clear that homosexual tops are just as damned as "passive" participants in man-on-man sex.
“Debates among Christians about the teaching of the Bible on homosexuality over the last twenty years sparked considerable scholarly interest in relevant words and texts,” said Moo in an interview with The Christian Post. “This research showed that two Greek words in this verse referred, respectively, to the passive and active participants in male homosexual activity.” Moo also explained the problem with the previous translation for a verse like the one in 1 Corinthians 6:9. The 1984 NIV rendering did not make clear whether homosexual activity per se was being condemned or whether only certain kinds of ‘offensive’ homosexual activity was being condemned,” said Moo. The updated NIV makes clear that the Greek words here indicate any kind of homosexual activity. The updated NIV also reflects the fact that the key Greek word here refers to males.
The theologians at Free Republic weigh in:

-"For those interested, the Greek words are ‘sodomite’ and ‘catamite’. Pitchers and catchers."
-"Two women can’t actually have sex."
-"A sodomite is the adult male homosexual rapist. Pitchers and catchers, sodomites and catamites. Always paired together."
