Bravo? This guy keeps saying that he supports polygamy and same-sex marriage. Do you agree with him?

Is it true that you have homosexual tendencies? Read it yourself, then prove it wrong! www.biblegateway.com
The Bible is an collection of ancient Jewish puppet plays.

GOD: 2 Kings 18:27, "...that they may eat their own dung and drink their own pisss with you..."

God was joking KeS, you can stop eating and drinking now.

For hundreds of years biblicists have been lecturing people on the importance of adhering to the Bible's teachings on ethics, manners, and morality. They quote Jesus and Paul profusely, with a liberal sprinkling of Old Testament moralisms. The problem with their approach lies not only in an oft-noted failure to practice what they preach, but an equally pronounced tendency to ignore what the Bible itself, preaches. Biblicists practice what can only be described as "selective morality". What they like, they expound; what they don't like, they ignore, even though the validity or strength of one is no less than that of the other. That which is palatable and acceptable is supposedly applicable to all; while that which is obnoxious, inconvenient, or self-denying is only applicable to those addresed 2,000 years ago. They enjoy quoting the Ten Commandments, the Sermon on the Mount, and some of Paul's preachings, for example, but don't pretend to heed other, equally valid, maxims. The following examples show the selectivity of apologetic morality.

First, a true follower of Jesus would have to be extremely poor--as poor as the proverbial churchmouse. The Bible makes this quite clear:
•(a) "...none of you can be my disciple unless he gives up everything he has" (Luke 14:33);
•(b) "If you want to be perfect, go and sell all you have and give the money to the poor and you will have riches in heaven" (Matt. 19:21);
•(c) "Sell your possessions and give alms" (Luke 12:33);
•(d) "But give what is in your cups and plates to the poor, and everything will be clean for you" (Luke 11:41);
•(e) "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt,.... But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven.... for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also" (Matt. 6:19-21);
•(f) "How hardly shall they that have riches enter to the kingdom of God" (Mark 10:23);
•(g) "Truly, I say to you, it will be hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God" (Matt. 19:23-24);
•(h) A certain ruler told Jesus that he had obeyed all the commandments from his youth up. But, Jesus said, "Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me" (Luke 18:22, Mark 10:21),
•and (i) Paul said, "For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as refuse, in order that I may gain Christ" (Phil. 3:8 RSV)

What you fail to realize and accept is that a larger population was using dirty underhanded tricks to stop blacks from exercising their rights.
Women went through a similar thing when they wanted to be equal to their husbands and exercise their right to vote.
Now homosexuals want the government to protect their right to engage in peaceful conduct with other consenting adults.
And slavery is a Christian thing, and the Bible tells us women are as much below their husbands as the husband is below Jesus, you pew warmers are afraid you are going to lose on homosexuality as well.
Well, yes, you ARE going to lose.
After homosexuality is as accepted as blacks are accepted and women continue to vote KKKristians have nothing left to lose. Nothing, you have lost it all.
And I tell you, I am happy to be a part of hammering nails into the christian coffin.
What you fail to realize is that I am not a Christian, I support same sex marriage and you are an idiot.
