GOD does not make mistakes. This is the "Gays" doing/choice for themselves - not GODS.

It means that religious people who truly believe in sharing the love and wonder of God with everyone, are actually walking that walk and talking that talk with real human beings.

So many religions and so-called religious people work tirelessly to drive gay people out of their churches and away from God, and all for a natural and God-given trait that wasn't asked for, wasn't chosen, and can't be changed.

You should be thankful, if you are a Christian, that so many churches are willing to step up, and step out with gay Christians (and millions of potential Christians, and try to change the message of fear, ignorance, and hatred that permeates so many "religious" people, who should know better.

It you are afraid to do it, don't whine when others are called by God to do so.

We all make choices, all the time. But the gender we can be attracted to is not one of them.

You are exactly right. How anyone can disagree with you about this is simply beyond me.

The only thing I can figure is that the most vehemently negative to this idea are likely in personal denial.

G-d created all in perfection. It is what you do with it that perverts perfection. He still loves you but not your sinning ways.
Your kind are not normal and you know it.
You have done the damage, no one else.
Wherever did you get THAT notion?

The Hebrew in Genesis doesn't mean "perfect" but "good enough", as in "It'll work" kind of good enough.

It's simple sadly. All sin must be choice, by definition.

So, if it's important to you to believe that being gay is a sin, you MUST believe it's a choice, despite all evidence to the contrary, and the personal life experiences of just about every gay person on the planet.

And yet, under the law, it really should make no difference.

you haven't read you bible, have you?

he made many. for some of them he came back as jesus (so the myth goes) and corrected his mistakes.(flying full in the face of the whole concept of an infallible god...but there it is, right in the bible)

I haven't found a cult yet that doesn't disprove their own created god...

Nor do church leaders need to show up to know that "God is at the Gay Pride Parade." He is present everywhere -- even in hell ("If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there" (Psalm 139:8) That does not mean God is present to suffer in hell. He is there is carry out his justice. Satan is just another prisoner, not the warden. If anyone draws the conclusion that, just because clergy and church groups show up at any event, this proves God is present and approves of everything the event stands for, they are bigger fools than one ever imagined.
Your theory can not been proven in a court of law

You did not read my post close. Let me start by saying if a gay walked into our church - he would be welcomed and treated just like anyone else. I am not judging anyone - that is not my place - my comment was "GOD does not make mistakes."

Yes I am sure you can not because GOD does not like it.

Leviticus 18:22 &#9658;
King James 2000 Bible (2003)
If a man also lies with a man, 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.

These are NOT MY WORDS they are GODS WORDS.
