I vote we eliminate the devient filth that you are spewing hate against something you do not agree with from our community. We already have a drug problem, thieves, and corruption in our city officials and PD without the stupidity of hatefulness too. Go back to your bible and read the chapter of Matthew. Says not to judge. So remember that when you are standing at the gates of Hell burning because you chose to be a hateful, old witch.

The "judge not lest you be judged" concept actually means the we shouldn't hold others to standards by which we wouldn't want to be held equally accountable, not to mention the enumerable points within the scriptures that, in no uncertain terms, define homosexuality as an abomination against God. It's also rather amusing that you condemn me to Hell for my beliefs within the very same paragraph wherein you chastise me for being judgmental, don't you think? Typical Liberal/Marxist hypocrisy!

lol. I'm no liberal! I'm not religious either. Just giving you what you want, since you are on here judging people who are gay (who we know exist) in order to please a God that we don't know exist. Such a silly thing to do yet bible thumpers like you are still passing judgement. Also - there are MILLIONS of ways to understand the bible so your explanation is just one of many that people say. I believe that you shouldn't judge ANYONE and get absolutely sick of holier than thou Christians ignoring the book and what it says and using it to be hateful. Such an abomination religion is, really.

My goodness, MISS-ter Unbelievable, aren't we just a burnin` bundle of contradictions? You based your initial argument (wherein you opined that passing judgment is contrary to biblical principles) on the very scriptures you are now trivializing, did you not? You’re essentially exposing yourself to be a non-believer/atheist when you state that “we” don’t know that God exists, yet you also seem to believe that you alone are somehow uniquely qualified to interpret said scriptures and therefore pass judgment on anyone who might disagree with you?

Why do you suppose society has seen fit to establish laws designed to protect children from sexual exploitation and exposure to harmful material (porn)? Could it be that you're so determined to promote sexual deviance and/or justify your own perversion that you'd also consider the enforcement of such laws to constitute inappropriately passing judgment? What type of world do you suppose this would be if we didn't judge murderers, rapists, child molesters, Etc., and take measures to minimize their potential to do harm?

Are you aware that on the average, homosexuals are at considerably higher risk when it comes to contracting and spreading deadly sexually transmitted diseases such as Aids and Hepatitis? Regardless of moral and/or religious dogma, any behavior that is so inherently destructive should be discouraged!
