Also, David was, according the bible, a "Man after God's own heart." Since homosexuality is expressly forbidden in the Old Testament (and I believe the New as well) David would be sinning in any kind of physical relationship he would have had with Jonathan, and he only once sinned (as in the case of Bathsheba). I agree with the above rebuttal, as well. The customs then were very different, as well as how King James' scholars would have translated the orginal manuscripts.
