You are right. Not a scholar. But scholarly enough to know obfuscation and simple dodging. And that's fine if that's how you want to do. Just seems that if you have a valid point you could make it without relying on so much irrelevant matter.<quoted text>
Wow. Ok. Where to begin? First Jesus was anti hate. That's where you left him the first time. The more you spew out hate, you stab Jesus in the back with a knife each time.
Now for your "facts": the first of two mentions of what everyone says are the anti-gay comments, comes from the book of leviticus. Translated, it stands for "the book of the levites". If you were any kind of scholar, you would know that the levites were the priests. Simple logic says that the title therefore reads "the book of the priests." So in reality leviticus has no bearing whatsoever on anyone else but priests.
The second passage is from pauls letters to the romans. He is telling them not to commit adultery and nothing more. These soldiers were away from home for long periods of time and as any soldier in our modern day militia can attest, it's hard to stay faithful to their spouse if they are away from them for long periods of time. So, in reality, that really only applies to married men.
Third, Jesus makes no reference to homosexuality in the entire gospel. I would think, that given the hatred spewing out of peoples mouths, such as what you just did, that you'd at least have a quote from Jesus himself, backing you up and telling you why it's ok to "judge others" in this example.
Oh wait. That's right. He said the exact opposite..
Hmmm.. He also said somewhere that people who do not love others as they love God do not love God with their whole body mind and soul. He also said people like that, if they don't repent for those sins, go to hell. Btw.. I'm not judging you. I'm merely pointing out the several flaws in what you just said and your animosity towards others. Because the good book also tells us to address the sinner and make him aware of his sins so that he might repent.
Oh and one more thing.. I'm a gay Catholic with many years of Bible study behind me and a Bible teacher who can practically quote the Bible by heart. So don't even try to argue what it says with me, cause you will lose. Have a great day and God bless!
I don't see where you get hatred and animosity and judging. I never said they shouldn't do the dispicable things they do, just that I feel most normal people would prefer if they didn't seek so hard to impose their deviancy on the rest of society, and not try and perpetrate more of their kind by child molestation.
