No matter how you try to congratulate yourselves on this sweetie, coming in second to the worst is nothing to be proud of. It's pretty darn embarrassing actually.

Sweetie, if you want to talk about something, it really helps if you know what you are talking about, your "understanding" of the subject, limited to your silly little fantasies. I'm not calling you a hater hon, just a misinformed fool.

Those verses are extremely clear and in the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, the desire of the men wanting to have sex with Lot's guests was clearly deemed wicked.
The sin of sodom is clearly defined in the bible in two separate passages. In neither place is it defined as what was called "sodomy" sometime in the 12th century. Read your bible and do your homework. The sin of sodom was inhospitality. Only thousands of years later was it repurposed to refer to a sin of sexuality. Read Ezekiel 16:49 to correct your ignorance.

You aren't labeled a hater simply by your insistence on discussing sodomy. Your hatefulness is defined by context. Why aren't you preoccupied with kissing? Is that natural? Frottage? For that matter, why are you defining sodomy as anal sex at all? That's not the definition. Neither legally nor biblically. Simply put, you're coming across as a bit obsessed, and more than a bit creepy.

You can give me any personal opinion that you want, but all of your refutations have so far logically failed, and you ignore that fact when they do.

Whoops, I meant Thweetie, thweetie. Sorry for the typo. I guess I didn't have my thweeties this morning. If you really want to use back handed insults such as sweetie, trust me, I am far better at that game than you are, and I don't need backhanded ones, butterbum. I'll bet you remember that song where it says "crisco kid, was a friend of mine, doo doo doo doo". Oh, that's right, it said sisco kid, not crisco kid. Same difference anyway.

What do these verse mean to you?

20:13 "If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them."

18:22 "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination."

Don't blame me that these are clearly written in the Bible, and you have every right to reject the Bible because these are written in it, but to say that it does not clearly say what it says is ridiculous.

And there was no inhospitality in Sodom and Gomorrah, the men clearly gathered around Lot's house and clearly wanted to have sex with his male guests. Is male on male sex inhospitality? Is that what you are saying?

Hon' it's not my fault that the only thing you have offered me to discuss is your incessant whining. You can fantasize all you want, but anyone who has bothered to follow along knows the truth. You're dismissed.

And again,off topic and irrelevant to the topic of this thread! Not to mention how the word "Homosexuality" got into the bible in the first place seeing how the word was not invented until the 1890's? Perhaps someone has been doing a little rewriting? Now,lets get back on topic shall we bible boy? How about you take that bible of yours and do a little old fashioned sit and spin!

They mean you are offending God. They mean that you do not know that God's laws and commandments are an all or nothing proposition that you yourself do not obey fully. They mean that you do not know that if you do not live them, you cannot invoke them, it is an offense against them for you to do so. They mean you haven't read a Bible except in out of context bits and pieces. They mean you will do almost anything to to pray that God hates us as much as you say he does, even commit sin yourself.

What do they mean to you, bunny?

Why didn't you go to verse 16:50 of Ezekiel (KJV) where is says, "And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me:"
An abomination before God is a detestable, loathing, abhorrent thing. He hates what ever it is.
Uh Huh. This is the same "abomination"spoken of at length in the levite holiness code. Tell me, are you observant of the code? I am not. I imagine you aren't either, so dial back your preaching, and try to reference scripture correctly.
ICANREADTOO wrote:
<quoted text>
And haughty is just another way of saying arrogant, full of pride. That's something you and your ilk ought to know an awful lot about.
And since you chose not to cite 16:50 through willful omission, as 16:50 supports Leviticus 20:13 on what is "abhorrent" to God, you need remedial ignorance lessons on Biblical scriptures, don't ya know?
And why dont you go to the book of Luke to review the sin of the pharisee. Jesus never knew you.

What version of christianity are you practicing that you believe that other christians should justify their faith to you?

Here, I'll play, and then I'll have some scriptural questions for you, since I believe Jesus condemned so called christians acting as you are, while never saying a thing about homosexuals.

Really, leviticus? This is the levite holiness code. It means exactly nothing to any new covanant christian. These verses mean as much to me as the over 600 edicts in the levite code which you ignore, mean to you.

I dont. I blame you for ignoring the rest of that book, while holding me to exactly two verses there. deal with the log in your own eye, you hypocrit.

You are completely ignorant of the verses you preach from, and that is the sin of the Pharisee. Jesus was clear on that point. I'll reference Luke again for you, because you are treading on clearly dangerous ground for any Christian believer.

In reference to the verses you are completely misinterpreting:

From Ezekial:
Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.

From
Luke10:7-16 and Mathew 10:14-15:
Both apostles report that Jesus attributed the sin of sodom to be that of uncharitable behavior.

IN the meantime, why dont you elaborate on why this is such an issue to you? There are very few verses int eh bible dealing with homosexuality in any form Why the obsesssion?

Your religious beliefs are irrelevant, although I do find it interesting that you fundies ALWAYS leave out the ending of the Sodom story.... you know.... where Lot knocks up his two virgin daughters.

The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA was NOT then NOR ever been a Christian Nation.....PERIOD!!!

One of the many attacks on our country from the Religious Right is the claim that our country is a Christian Nation...not just that the majority of people are Christians, but that the country itself was founded by Christians, for Christians. However, a little research into American history will show that this statement is a lie. Those people who spread this lie are known as Christian Revisionists. They are attempting to rewrite history, in much the same way as holocaust deniers are. The men responsible for building the foundation of the United States were men of The Enlightenment, not men of Christianity. They were Deists who did not believe the bible was true. They were Freethinkers who relied on their reason, not their faith.

Maybe you can answer my question then... Why did we have to escort God his word, and prayer, out of our schools and military don't deny this if you mention anything about God or your Christian faith in the military you will get court martialed. Why was it okay in the first place? I'll tell you what i'll go to the website you listed above with an open mind if you go to this one with an open mind likewise!!! www.wallbuilders.com
