My birth as a homosexual was not then and is not now a sin. God created me just the way I am, as His beloved child.
You were born into sin as we all were but you Choose to remain in unrepentant sin.

There is no evidence other than anecdotal, that says that homosexuals are born that way.

Because you choose to remain in ignorance, your opinion has no bearing on my knowledge nor my faith in God.

It is sad when people cower in the shadows as you do.

God is LIGHT and HOPE and LOVE!!! Come and feel the warmth of it!!!

Because you choose to remain in unrepentant sin you have created your god in your own image which in your mind gives you affirmation and approval.

I am not cowering in the shadows, I am right here telling you the truth. If you were to be completely honest with yourself, you know that love is not a licence to continue in sin.

Your distorted view of god, does not effect those of us who know the true God.

It does make me sad for you, however.

I know the joy of His love and care, and I work to spread that joy.

I can feel the protection of His Holy Spirit, and it gives me courage to stand up for Him.

He directs my life and I walk His path.

What more could I want from life???

You could have this too.

"Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins."

You think love is evil.

Keep talking about sin, it's where your heart lies.

You're nuts, my friend.

According to your rationale: God created murderers, adulterers, thieves, etc.

People have a choice to make on whether or not they will remain in unrepentant sin or not. Gay Mom has made her choice.

Do you take every single word in the bible literally and follow it to the letter? Really? Every last bit of it?

People aren't born murderers, adulterers, and thieves. They become those things through choice. People don't get to choose whether or not they're gay. I am suppose to repent and live a lie instead? Put me in a heterosexual relationship and I assure you it would be loveless and sexless, I would make my partner miserable because I would be miserable. That's no way to live. Especially when just being yourself causes no harm to anybody. There are things we reject from the bible because they don't make any goddamn sense for us anymore, like the whole shellfish thing or slavery or how we treat women. Times change and values change.
