You've never heard of a little event called the "Crusades".
I suppose now you'll tell us the Crusades were against gayness.

Yeah, ain't they cuddly-poo when they don't know where they truly stand?

I think it's a straight that just dying to come out of the closet, judging by how much pimply rage it has against the "homophobes". If only more of them would get angry at GLAAD and GLSEN using them as tools.

Funny how you're NOT amazed of how much money 'Christians' donate to causes like 'Kill the Gays' bill in Uganda..But then I guess you've never heard of 'The Brotherhood' either...Next time you shoot off that ignorant mouth do some research fking bigot!
You sound like another angry gay, thanks for showing us what I wrote is true. I'm a Christian, but have never donated to Kill the gays bill in any place. I just made you sound very ignorant and proved you are the Bigot!!!

From the same article;

"Even its
closest rival in intolerance, Islam, has not carried out as many
religious wars and pogroms against the Jews as Christianity. All
things considered, the world would have been a slightly better place
if the Christian religion had never existed."

A gay activist article that expresses it's ignorant, hateful bigotry.

Moreover, you are speaking about Roman Emperors. Nothing in Christianity expresses any such judgement for homosexuals.

Are you saying that only one side is in the closet, Brucie?

C'mon, what are you so afraid of? Do you shiver in horror at a good looking gal? The thought of a breast give you panic attacks? Lots of guys turn into jello around a perty woman, but they don't get grade skool stoooopid and want to hide inside Bluto's large intestine.

You are an idiot bigot.
Homosexuality is rejected across cultures and all religions for all of human history. Extremely rare episodes of it being accepted as normal have never lasted of any significant length of time.
First you LIE and say that homosexuality is rejected on a universal level throughout history.

Then, with full understanding that you have LIED, you try to clarify your comment by saying, "Wait, well, not EVERY culture has rejected it, but most have."

I always find it humorous when you make such blanket statements. Has it ever occurred to you that we really know very little about human history? We only know what we have been able to interpret from societies that were advanced enough to leave written records. There are, as I'm sure you'd agree, a great deal we don't know about history and culture.

And even in those cultures where we have written documents, it's always understood that those in power write the history. How people lived their actual day-to-day lives cannot be known with certainty.

Take, for example, North Korea. The state oppresses free speech. Even with all of our technology we're still in the dark about what ACTUALLY takes place there.

Dead men tell no tales, Kim. History's information about gays and lesbians cannot be fully relied on.

And finally, why do you so often go to "history" as an indication of "how" we should treat people today?

Historically, women have been treated as being less intelligent and less worthy of respect.

Slavery in some form has existed or been embraced worldwide since as far back as we have records.

Mandatory education for all children, regardless of their parent's status, was basically unheard of until very recently.

Christianity has only major religion since about 300 AD. That's a drop in the bucket when compared to the history of mankind.

The whole notion of "equality" among men is very recent--mostly traced back to the Age of Enlightenment in the 1600s. "Its purpose was to reform society using reason, challenge ideas grounded in tradition and faith, and advance knowledge through the scientific method. It promoted scientific thought, skepticism and intellectual interchange and opposed superstition, intolerance and some abuses of power by the church and the state."

Should we then go back to treating women as inferior? Should we go back and embrace slavery? Should we try to mimic the way that education was distributed by the vast majority of societies? Should we rush back and embrace the various other religions that predate Christianity by eons? Should we throw the whole notion of "equality" out the window because it hasn't yet stood the test of time and worldwide cultural acceptance?

You cannot base mankind's current activities solely on how history may have treated people.

It's a mistake you ALWAYS make.

See to it that you don't do it again.

Something tells me that you're not quite the intellectual you pious twits claim to be.

Think about it, Einstein. If humanity embraces you, then we'll die out.

How fucking stoooooopid can you be?

It will never ever ever be in Humanity's interest to accept you. We're doomed when we do.

Talk about gay twirl pontification!

I was making an attempt to be brief, something you should seriously consider.

My first point is this. Homosexual acceptance has never established itself and spread. It appears for brief periods in different forms, and then disappears. It is never fully accepted as normal.

In Greece, it was pederasty, or more honestly, gay pedophilia. With this additional quirk ~ when the boy victim reached adulthood, they converted to heterosexuality.

In Rome, homosexual behavior was discretely accepted with slaves being the analized victims.

Homosexual American Indians were basically abused sex slaves, with rare exceptions.

I've gone over this with you before, so you know exactly what I was saying. It is why you throw the lack of historical knowledge in to cover your ass. Sorry honey, we know enough to know you are full of sh/t.

Oh, and don't let it happen again.

Smirk.
