Fundies don't know anything about the history of Christianity.
That is because they don't want to admit that it was all invented centuries after Jesus was executed by the Romans for his crimes, by people that never met the historical Jesus...

Not truly British, are you. With England's LONG maritime history with the Low Countries, you'd know that "gay" came from the Dutch able-seaman's slang, "ghey", meaning "randy", as in "the randy tar".

Obviously you are one of the perverts I refer to in my post.
My education is intact. More intact than your an*s.
Indeed.... "pervert" is such a subjective word, so... official sounding... although you seem interested enough to seek it out.

Marcionism is a heresy, and a part of the history of Xiandom. It was an issue in the minds of the people who were compiling the anthology you worship. Irenaeus, for one. Eusebius referred to it later.

Those old heresies crop up again and again and again because they find their roots in Saulianism.

It's what is meant by "bad fruit".

This has already been explained to you.....SIN...
What you have missed is that the destruction was punishment for SIN, something that God has always done when necessary.
Pure BS!

1 Samuel 15:3 Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.

Now, I could maybe see slaying the men that had "sinned" against Israel. Maybe. Much harder to justify for the women. Infants? Sucklings? No, there can be no justification for such killing.

Unless you acknowledge that there are MANY Gods, and the God of the children of Israel was NOT the God of the Amalekites. Then it is just one more sad episode in history of killing off rivals for a coveted prize.

And you seem to be deliberately avoiding answering a simple question. Do you or do you not believe that slaughtering men women and children in an act of genocide is wrong? Why the reticence on this, what are you afraid of?
Hardly honey, I answered it with my first response. God clearly justified genocide with both a flood and fire. I stand by His judgment.

Do you approve of abortion?

Especially when you consider that one of those eight went into to uncover the nakedness* of his own father!

* "Uncovering the nakedness" was used as Biblical slang for having sex.

Eew.

These boys have active and quite vivid imaginations, so they are never really alone, that's why nobody else wants to sit with them. Already too crowded and their imaginary friends are weird.

If I were "cornered" I couldn't "run".

That post exemplifies my problem with you, quite nicely.

Again, talk to someone else. I've got to go get my carry-on inspected for the last hop.

"Normal" usually refers to average. However, it also refers to that which can be seen as part of the range of expected results.

Homosexuality is not average, but it is part of the expected range of results of sexual orientation.

What, you would rather have a pet unicorn than an eternity with our good Christian friend? He keeps telling us that Jesus will be there too.

Really?

In a literary sense, you couldn't run if you were cornered?

It exemplifies a problem for sure, but it isn't me.

I like to think of it as heterosexuals are common. Homosexuals are uncommon. Normal is such a subjective term.
