The problem is they are learning about history in Sunday school<quoted text>
The Roman Empire fell for numerous reasons. It's a myth to say that it fell due to an acceptance of homosexuality.
Most historians believe that the Empire fell primarily because it became so large that it could not defend itself, from a monetary standpoint and a lack of manpower.
Regarding "diseases", you have to understand that these illnesses do not care about the orientation of the person when it transmits itself from one person to another. They are opportunistic infections that simply find the easiest way to stay alive and grow.
And if you want to talk about a "deadly disease", let's talk about how you straight people abort 40,000,000 babies each year. In a little over seven and a half years, that's about the number of people who live in the U.S.
You guys cause much more death on the planet than gay men.
And lesbians are less likely than even heterosexuals to develop HIV.
So, your comments about disease and the gay community is just false.
Rome was a Christian empire when it fell, had been for 150 years. are they saying that Christians used to accept homosexuality and then changed their minds?
They donít like to remember the Rome fell as a Christian empire, so they just leave that part out.
Now I am not saying that their being a Christian empire is the why they fell, but it was another drop in the bucket.
The empire had sustained itself through conquest, and plunder of the surrounding kingdoms, once that conquest slowed, even stopped, it started collapsing on itself.
That and the fact that after Augustus, the line of rulers got pretty bad pretty fast.
The religious conflicts over time also added to it, Constantine finally gave up and converted to Christianity to quell the violent Christian riots. Before long Christianity was THE religion of Rome, there is a reason the head of the church was and is in Rome but they donít like to remember why.
Rome was a Christian empire as it fell, and they really donít like to be reminded of that.
