Like I asked you, what do YOU know about Hebrew? Or should we rely on what Pink times says? Sounds like your mind is on a woody. How does your translation work for this passage?... "as she exceeded all other women in beauty, and he sent some to command her ..." Are you saying Esther being a female got a woody? Or would your fantasy be that Esther was a tranny in your perverted mind?

Your knowledge of Hebrew is underwhelming, moron.

But great wise one, homosexuality had been included in the DSM, not on the basis of any scientific evidence that it was, in and of itself a "mental disorder", but based upon the assumption that since all they saw were "disordered" homosexuals, all homosexuals were disordered? Don't believe me? Look into it for yourself and come back to us if you can find any legitimate studies which prove that question in the affirmative. As to your reality challenged attempt to link "homosexuality and/or homosexuals" to "pedophilia", there's more than three decades of scientific evidence which proves that to be an incredibly dangerous myth. Don't believe me? Look for yourself, read the actual studies, don't rely on other "experts" take on them. Your children are at far more risk of molestation in the company of openly heterosexual men than they are in the company of those who are openly homosexual, but you want to "protect" them from those least likely to do something like that and try to convince them that you solved their problem.

Wise one, are you this maliciously misinformed about EVERY subject you dispense your insight on, or is such a dangerous level of ignorance and disinformation reserved just for us? We're blessed.

Those who identify and live as openly heterosexual and behave predominately accordingly with adults are far more likely to be a danger to little boys and the single most likely suspect when such abuse does occur is the man doing mommy, especially if it isn't daddy. We hear about the scandals, but most such abuse is taking place within the "family". Hell, those who don't seem to have ANY sexual attractions towards adults of either sex are more dangerous to your children than someone who identifies and lives as openly homosexual and behave predominately accordingly with adults. Jerry Sandusky became a "successful homosexual pedophile" because of the refusal to believe that he was anything but "heterosexual". For decades, the man had immediate access to choice young men at their sexual prime and probable peak eagerness to sexually explore and while it would have been inappropriate, at least they were over the age of consent and yet not even a hint of impropriety, let alone what he was allowed to get away with when he was with the veal. Look it up for yourself.

Wise one, it took a great deal of pressure to get the rank and file of the APA to finally recognize the scientific fact that being homosexual is NOT in and of itself a mental disorder and the fact that one can actually be openly homosexual and not suffer psychologically the least bit because of it. They may not have been ready to admit to that fact then, society wasn't and even some 40 years down the road we have wise ones such as yourself who are still in denial, but that doesn't change the facts.

Indeed gays are evil in heart, and your evil causes your suicide.
If that is the "truth" you want to embrace, more power to you oh wise one, but please stay away from any children, regardless of sexual orientation. It's hearing over and over and over again from such well meaning spreaders of wisdom and insight, such as yourself, that we are evil at heart which kills, not that they actually are. Their blood is on your hands, rejoice oh wise one.

Wise one, while I'm glad you managed to find a paragraph from Mr Gerig which supports your spin on the story, you should have read a little further. You know, like this on the site's home page:

"Homosexuality and the Bible
By Bruce L. Gerig

We are sad to announce the passing of Bruce L. Gerig on May 29, 2012. He was 76 years old.

Bruce began his intense Bible investigation when he realized that the Scriptures did NOT condemn gay people to hell as those in the Church had taught him. He sought to find out for himself what the Scriptures really said about homosexuality, same-sex orientation and loving relationships.

Since then he has dedicated his scholarly research to all GLBT people who have suffered condemnation, not from God, but from their families, friends and churches who use the name of God against them.

In each of his articles, Bruce gathers mountains of information from countless resources, which included noting the meanings of ancient words and languages, local customs and social mores, and commentaries by other researchers, experts and scholars. He brought this information all together to form a more complete picture of what was really going on in the stories of the Bible. He also referenced and heavily footnoted his sources so readers could investigate for themselves and show that he wasn't just making it all up.

Of special note is Bruce's original work in his Jonathan and David series. When he first began his research, he was shocked to discover how few Biblical scholars investigated the special relationship between these two men of the Bible who loved each other, especially since one of them would become the King of Israel and the Jewish people...."

front page ny times, the strategy that will defeat the homosexual radicals:

(1) marriage between a man and a woman is the tested foundation of a stable society

(2) children do best when raised by a married father and mother

(3) it is possible to respect the rights of gays and lesbians without redefining marriage

Everyone has a right to love who they choose, but nobody has a right to redefine marriage.

I agree, I'm no expert or care to spend the time to be an expert on the knowledge of the Hebrew language. I am glad for you that you spent the time and energy to study Hebrew and along with Pink news to back you up. I gave an example of the word, "exceeded" in another passage that would only mean what I wrote making the woman tranny's like you. Seems like according to pink news that the early people in our history and the Bible were either queer or trans. Maybe with your great knowledge, you can rewrite the bible along with pink news, maybe come out with all pink words when the greatest queer speaks.

What a strange, strange, alternate version of reality you live in my dear. Same sex marriage equality was passed in New York because it was the right thing to do. The state's constitution already recognized that same sex couples who came into the state already legally married had to be treated that way, it was only a matter of time before the Court overturned the Hernandez decision if they didn't do something.

you've lost all 32 of 32 votes in states chosen by homosexuals because you treat people like they can't see through your lies

I'm not lying and saying I don't think the issue is important, like you are.
And, I don't have the same rights a man does, I can't marry a woman. A man doesn't have the same rights I do, he can't marry a man. So, you are lying, we don't all have the same rights.

It's obvious your Government credentials are impressive. I bet you absorbed everything your high paid Government agent teachers told you. Prior to the revolution, the object of an expensive taxpayer funded liberal education was to teach the student how to think for himself. Such a waste of hard earned taxpayer money...
Ronald
Schools don't necessarily teach you to think, that is an ability that is up to the individual. That is almost like teaching empathy. These are the things one gains via family input. However, I had good teachers back when I went to public school (60s & 70s). When I was a kid if you messed up in school you were up against the teacher, the principal, your parents, the neighbor kid's parents, etc. Now it is the teacher up against the parents, the kid, their lawyer... The classrooms are out of control now.

As far as learning to think, it appears that there are many who look down upon homosexuality that are simply following dogma. I did that during my teen years. Then I learned to think for myself and actually got to know some folks who happened to be gay.

It also appears that a lot of people opposed can't seem to get past thinking about what two gay folk do in the privacy of their own homes. There is a great deal more to a gay person than just a set of genetalia. Rather sad that some folks can't get that into their thick skulls. Kind of sad, no?
