Why is forming a commited and legally recognized relationship with the one chosen for you by God, a "loss of morality"?

How will stronger families bring about the "downfall of this nation"?

Eze 16:50 And they were haughty, and committed ABOMINATION before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.
Lev 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is ABOMINATION.
You still want to say that homosexuality is not listed as one of the sins of Sodom? It's right there.
LOL...you didn't do very well on logic questions in school, did you?

The basic principles of our founding fathers were christian principles and as such, are the foundation of our legal system. Our money has.. In God we trust on it, Our Pledge of Allegiance has God in it.
Both instances were added LONG after our founding fathers. I find it quite blasphemous and unconstitutional to print God's name upon money.

I agree that he continues to "speak" to us. I just don't think many devout Christians are receiving the message because they are too busy thumping their Bibles.

No, they wanted to interrogate and harrass the newcomers. They wanted to show that outsiders were not welcome in their city. It was one of the biggest sins in the eyes of the Jewish authors that wrote about their times.

So because they were unfriendly they were destroyed? It translates the way you wish it to.
No. I refer back to rabbinical studies over the original Hebrew text. And yes, the Hebrews considered the sin worthy of destruction. It also coincides with what Jesus calls the second greatest Commandment: "Love your neighbor as you would love yourself." Are you saying God would be wrong to destroy people for disobeying His second greatest Commandment, as spoken by his very son?

It is homophobic bigots that have taken their hate for homosexuality to twist the words of the Bible to support their hatred. It is sad that you would deny the word of Jesus and try to debunk the scholars of the original text to explain why it is OK for you to ignore the second greatest Commandment.

Which is the core of your problem. The Bible has become your golden idol. And you seem to hold it higher than God.

Ok been gone for a while. I couldn't have told you what happened to Sodom and whatever because, as you missed, while I may believe in a higher power, I still believe the bible is just a book wrote by man. I beleive it open to how you read it and there is no "GOD MEANT THIS OR THAT"

To the other poster that talked about Rome being a decadent civilization, that may be. I wasn't saying it was good, i was just arguing against someone else saying no civilized place condoned same sex. Also, this civilization is crumblinb apart and becoming less free due to people shoving their moral beliefs on eveyone else and finding what little evidence that can be fabricated and using it as proof.

Again, I don't care your beleifs but I don't think someone else should have to be unhappy because of your moral beleifs. Also don't compare gays to drug use. It's nowhere near the same thing.

Also thanks to the kudos from who ever that was. I'm not afraid to admit my faults. I have gay friends and to be honest they're nicer than my straight friends. Though at one time I was very homophobic. I grew up with this guy literally since we were babies. We were great friends, but around 16 he came out that he was gay and had been for as long as he could remember. When the rest of us were getting interested in the girls around school, he was finding out he was mroe attracted to us guys. Creeped me out and I could barely talk to him for a year. Then I finally realized what he does in the privacy of his own home is really none of my buisness. He was still the same person I grew up with, and still an all around great guy... or girl maybe lol.

It has to be a sign of the theist's veracity in their argument that they descend to trolling and ridiculous childishness in place of proper discourse.

we're holding them for ransom.
OR
we could trade governors.
You can have the one that is in jail, or the one going to jail, or the one in office who'll someday wind up in jail.
Illinois is trying to set a record of having the most governors in jail at the same time.
