Homosexuality and the Bible

Aug 15, 2011 Full story: www.smh.com.au 25,089

Given the ongoing debate about same-sex marriage, it is time I looked at the two Testaments to remind myself why belief is so hard for me to embrace.

I agree. The Bible is crap.
It doesn't even make good toilet paper! I know I used to ask for a Bible free motel room when I used to travel and if it wasn't removed I would steal it and take it home and use it one page at a time in the bathroom.

You are all idiots wrote:
Seriously, why is this even a debate? According to the bible we shouldn't eat pork, we shouldn't get divorces, we shouldn't get aroused by anyone other than our partners, and we should treat women as lower-class citizens.
Henceforth any man who tells me homosexuality is an abomination is going to have his wife stoned.
This is a debate because some of us have not evolved as far as others. Those lacking the evolutionary gift of the ability to use reason and logic do not debate the Bible, instead they dismiss it entirely. Those who only use their "lizard" brain believe just any old tale they are told and will kill should someone question it. Every thing they know about God is just something someone else has told them, or they themselves have made up in their own head. They assume everyone else is as stupid as they are so they insist that God is real to them and they know something the rest of do not know. The truth is these individuals are a pathetic evil who exist to make life miserable for the rest of us. There is no God and Christianity is the abomination.

It does matter. You said I am "so stupid because I believe any old tale."
What "old tale" do I believe?
Robert
I give up, which one? Maybe the one that you are a self conscious free individual who lives his life as he wishes? Anyway I do not recall saying this to you. I was under medication a month or so ago and I know I made several error's answer people in the wrong reply screen. If I owe you an apology here it is: I'm sorry.

Did anyone believe you were "so stupid because..."?:)

From one Rev. to another:
That's funny.
If one is inclined to practice a mantra of "believe nothing," one would have no reason to seek to verify anything.
Obviously, you actually are attempting to believe "nothing." But, equally obvious is your inability to describe just what that "nothing" is.

Perhaps you want to pick one point to discuss specifically?
Smile.
I myself would like to discuss whether or not God's face has been seen:

John 1:18 "No man hath seen God at any time;..."

Exodus 33:20, And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.



John 6:46 "Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is ofGod, he hath seen the Father."

1John 4:12 "No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us."

Versus

Gen. 32:30 "And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved."

Exod. 33:11 "And the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend."

Num. 14:14 "...that thou LORD art seen face to face,..."

Job 42:5 "I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee."

Deut. 34:10 "And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face,..."

Deut. 5:4 "The LORD talked with you face to face...."

(also Psalm 63:2 Isa.6:1 & 6:5, Amos 7:7-8, Ezek. 20:35, Ex 24:9-10

That is probably the most objective and impartial statement you have ever written in here. Thumbs up for the truth.

ALAN: God wasn't there for Jesus. Jesus begged for God's help and was met with silence.

Why are you 'reporting' me, Man3/ES? Surely you believe that all homosexuals and other sinners will burn in hell forever, don't you?
Why can't I say the same of you?
Your hatred of homosexuals will be one of many reasons why you will burn in hell forever.
Good luck with that.
Robert
There are a hell of a lot of other reason he is going to hell as well. Refusing to do what Jesus said to do for one thing.

I would not read 739 pages of shit, even if somebody paid me to do it. Therefore, this is probably been said somewhere in here.
Homosexuality and the Bible. What a fucking joke number one am I supposed to believe that there is some magical spirit in the sky that is looking down on us, and if he, she or it is, than what the hell are they doing looking in people's bedrooms? What are they some sort of pervert.
Now tell me again how many times has the Bible been rewritten by the common man? Am I supposed to believe that some fairytale character has spoken to them and told them what to write in the book? What a joke LOL
If my neighbor likes taking it in the ass. I really do not care. It does not affect me in any way. He's not trying to put my ass so why should I care.
In addition, don't even get me started on the pro-life freaks that go around bombing and killing innocent people at Planned Parenthood. You know, most people that go to Planned Parenthood are there for yearly exams and birth control, and who the hell are you to tell a woman she should not or cannot take birth control. Do we really want to bunch of mothers running around having kids didn't want kids in the first place?
As you can probably tell, I'm not a very religious person. Actually, I'm not religious at all. I believe in the tried and true method of the others how you want to be treated, and thus far it is worked pretty well for me.
I do not mind that people are religious. I just do not like them, trying to shove it down my throat. I like eating pussy, but I do not go around trying to make everybody else do it

Hmmmmm. Sorry to read that you have such a destructive compulsion with other people's property.

Do you do that with the Qur'an and Bhagavad Gita, too?

The Gita, being somewhat shorter, might make a good "edition" to your travel Dopp kit!

But, I wouldn't recommend it of the Qur'an. If certain people found out that you were doing this, left-handed or not, you might be found uncontrollably shitting your pants.

What? Those cheap counterfeit KJV? They only work as doorstops and fire starters. You need the nice old Bibles with tissue pages for toilet paper.

Still waiting for you to say what word was replaced by 'homosexual' in the bible, and why homosexual is a more accurate word. Your "man" plus "bed" comedy routine was funny, BTW. Stupid, but funny. Just like you.

Snicker Snort.

Oh, so now you're stealing comedy routines from other comedians?
And I loved it, BTW! You crack me up.
At least you are now admiting that you have no idea what word was replaced with 'homosexual' in the bible, nor if 'homosexual' should even be in the bible. That's a big step toward being logical. Good for you.
Alas, however, for the present you are still stupid.
