Really? You shouldn't go there. Read the scripture and you will find plenty of examples where God is against homosexuality.
He is also against pork. Do you eat bacon?

He is also against shellfish? Eat any shrimp lately?

He is also against mixing more than one type of fiber? Do you own any cotton/poly blend t-shirts?

He is also for slavery. How many slaves do you own?

He also commands that women be forced to leave the house during menstration and can only return after the bleeding has stopped and they have been ritually bathed so that they are once again clean?

So do you force the women in your house to go live in the shed for five days a month?

If not you need to shut your pie hole because your cafeteria Christianity in which you get to pick and choose which of your God's laws to obey is pathetic.

Here's a question for you Christian. Jesus came to fulfill God's covenant and replaced the Old Testament laws with his own. Jesus never mentions homosexuality once. Do you think that if it was as important to him as you are trying to make it out to be, he might has said something about it somewhere? Just once?

Right below that it gives instructions on how to beat and kill insolent slaves? So how do you kill your slaves?

It also prohibits eating pig with the same language. So in biblical terms eating pork is n equal footing with being gay. I don't see you throwing a fit that the grocery store is selling bacon.

You know what though, go ahead and be a bigoted fool. It is killing Christianity faster than anything else. The younger generation does not believe it is right to persecute gay people. When they see the church doing it they reject the church. So go right ahead and hate. It will only mean your bullshit Iron age religion fades into obscurity even faster.

Call it an evolution of the species.

Does this civil status mean they are normal people?

Does it give them same status as marriage as far as being a spouse?

The marriage status gives them rights to steal Social Security when the spouse dies.

The heathen that do not believe in God's Word-- might just be smart enough to know that the tap on SS FROM THE GAY BOOMERS WILL BE GREATER than the Baby Boomers tap.

All other privileges are obtainable by a document allowing whomever to inherit, health care boss, share real estate etc. Only SS requires spouse to tap first dead spouses SS and thus increase amount for left behind one. Sisters, brothers and older siblings are not able to do so.
Money is the name of the game- They are laughing all the way to the bank as no one has brought this up as of now.

Are you retarded? A group that makes up 3% of the nation is going to tax the system more than the other 97%?

Equal rights is the name of the game. Your inability to handle simple figures is not.

Wow, I feel sad for you and where you are going end up. Remember our conversation when you are burning in hell, and I don't mean that meanly, I mean it literally. Some day you will remember these words and wish to yourself you never said not believed them. I won't stoop to your level and call names, I will pray for you instead. God bless, I'm afraid for your future.

Join the blacks, they blame other people for their dissatisfaction in life as well. "Everyone just wants things to be fair." Well, reality check, life isn't fair. Also, think about it like this. How will civilization continue to exist with there becoming more and more gays? Last time I checked, a dude can't get another dude pregnant. Don't gay people, men in particular, have a drastically increased risk of aids? Yes they do. Isn't that expensive to treat? Yes it is. Don't most people with aids not have health care? Well, yes. Who pays for their treatments then? The taxpayer. Oh, well its seems to me the american taxpayer should be up in arms because in a round about way, this will only cost them more. It's also un-natural for a child to be reared by gay's. That is already putting them behind the 8 ball to start their life. Kids are cruel, so why would you want to subject a kid to anymore cruelty? The list goes on and on as to why this is a bad idea. Just my opinion.
The drastic increase in the risk of aids is old news from the 80's. If your going to spread bigoted idiotic remarks at least check your facts. The only reason that gay couples didn't have health insurance is because homophobic jackasses are too scared that either two guys or two gals getting the same benefits from their relationship that heterosexuals do is going to somehow keep you from getting into your "heaven". News flash buddy, how does your god view bigotry and hatred?

So...basically you have no answers for very legitimate biblical questions.

Shocker.

What?

So, only Christians fear providing the same social security benefits to gay married couples as they do straight couples? Why would only Christians want to stiff others to increase their share? Do only Christians have issues with standing on their own two feet, or do they all need to be subsidized by gay families, to the detriment of those families?

Doesn't sound very Christian to me.

Yes, many people have realized that currently, straight couples are laughing all the way to the bank. They are squeezing subsidies from gay families, without a care in the world as to how their greed harms those families.

Your post here proves that for many straight people, it's all about preserving their unfair share of each gay taxpayer's money.

Fortunately, a great many straight couples have realized this, and are fighting alongside gay folks to change this ridiculous situation.

I don't think you have actually read the bible not understand it. You can twist anything you want and slant it to sound as you wish but if you read the bible you would get your answers. I don't need to debate what it says because you will interpret things the way you want them to sound.

You do not stand side by side with God, judging the human heart and soul.

A great many gay people have flown from the very notion of God, driven away by those that pretend to "care", while demanding the impossible.

Threatening people with hell while talking of a loving god is a wonderful way to spread the Word.

1 Timothy 1 9-10. Wow New Testament talks about it. Amazing what you find when you open and read it. This is why I don't have to prove to you what's in it, because I know it is and you haven't read not understand it.

Hopefully it is enough to get them reading or interested enough to check it out. I am only stating what is in Gods word, it is wrong plain and simple. I understand there have been many great gay people in this world but it doesn't change the fact that its wrong.

Will you be honest enough to acknowledge that every reader, every translator, every biblical scholar does this, ever time they read the Bible?

Even yourself?

Every person who has picked up any translation throughout it's long history has done this.

That's why we do not run or Government by the Bible. If we did, we would have to decide which version, which translation, and which interpretation was "correct".

And EVERYONE would believe that it was their own interpretation.
