To insist people follow your truth when your own religions can't agree and your own texts can't agree on defining "truth" shows what a deceptive person you & Chuck really are.

A Sodomite is a person from the supposed city of Sodom.......was that really so hard to figure out?

I mean if you believe that a Sodomite is someone who engages in anal sex......then there are MANY, who would be considered Sodomites regardless of one's sexual orientation!!!

The pope is an evil false prophet and will most likely burn in hell just like all the other pervert popes.

Homosexuality is an EVIL abomination.

5 They called to Lot,“Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.”

6 Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him 7 and said,“No, my friends. Don’t do this wicked thing.

9 “Get out of our way,” they replied.“This fellow came here as a foreigner, and now he wants to play the judge! We’ll treat you worse than them.” They kept bringing pressure on Lot and moved forward to break down the door.

10 But the men inside reached out and pulled Lot back into the house and shut the door. 11 Then they struck the men who were at the door of the house, young and old, with blindness so that they could not find the door.

Then the LORD rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from the LORD out of the heavens. 25 Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, destroying all those living in the cities—and also the vegetation in the land.

Then the LORD rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah.

Then the LORD rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah.

Then the LORD rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah.

The gays were not so gay. In fact they got fried to a ashes.

Total GAY SHAME !

Pedophile Popes burn in hell.

He will burn with the antichrist.

There will be no escape as earth is going to be melted by the sun. Well done. Crispy and totally cleaned of all illuminati.

Complete GAY SHAME !

Y'all are actually going to get to the love part at some point in this vision of yours? Can't say that I've seen a whole lot of love for your lesbian and gay sisters and brothers, just a whole hell of a lot of paranoid judgmental God spit. "Love the sinner, hate the sin", is nothing better than the Fred Phelps message of God hates F's translated into wussy.

S.F. Gay Rights Leader Arrested Over Child Porn:

S.F. CRIME:

Published 09:21 p.m., Monday, June 25, 2012:

San Francisco police have arrested veteran gay rights advocate Larry Brinkin in connection with felony possession of child pornography.

Brinkin, 66, who worked for the San Francisco Human Rights Commission before his retirement in 2010, was taken into custody Friday night. He spent the night in jail before he was released on bail, according to a spokeswoman for the sheriff's department.
The district attorney's office will decide Tuesday whether to file charges. "We're still reviewing the case," district attorney's spokeswoman Stephanie Ong Stillman said Monday.

Police say that Brinkin had pornographic images, some that appear to show children as young as 1 and 2 or 3 years old being sodomized and performing oral sex on adult men, in e-mail attachments linked to his account, according to a search warrant served by San Francisco police.

Representatives of America Online contacted authorities after coming across e-mail attachments from one of its subscriber's accounts containing what they believed to be child pornography.
The Los Angeles Police Department, which was assigned to the case, traced the IP address associated with the account, [email protected], to Brinkin, a San Francisco resident, according to court records. Los Angeles police forwarded the case to San Francisco police.

San Francisco investigators say the account was registered to Brinkin, and that he paid for the e-mail service with his credit card.

Police provided two examples of e-mail messages from last year in which Zack3737 provides disturbing descriptions of the exploitive sexual acts.

The e-mail account also is linked to Yahoo discussion groups on sexual exploitation of young boys and girls, according to the search warrant.

Executing a search warrant Friday, police seized two laptops, a desk top computer, videos, a floppy disk and thumb drives from Brinkin's Waller Street home.

During his 22-year tenure at the Human Rights Commission, Brinkin was best known for championing equal rights for gays and lesbians. He helped craft San Francisco's groundbreaking Equal Benefits Ordinance, which became a national model for workplace equality.

Upon Brinkin's retirement, the Board of Supervisors approved a resolution declaring the week of Feb. 1, 2010, "Larry Brinkin Week" in San Francisco, saying his "dedication to advance the civil rights of all people has never stopped."

Former Supervisor Bevan Dufty who authored the board resolution, said Monday that he was shocked to learn of Brinkin's arrest. "I have admired and respected his work for the LGBT community," Dufty said. "I respect and am confident that there will be due process."

The gays are the devils chosen people. Their home is in hell. The devil is their father.

Wow! I guess it's a good thing that us heterosexuals never molest any children,right? To bad the facts are that the vast majority of child molestation's are in committed by heterosexuals on young girls! 1 out of every 4 girls are molested in their youth,I guess gays are doing that also? I got to tell you,you are one bat shyte crazy mo fo! I know you've been told many,many times, but seek professional help before you hurt yourself or some innocent person! You're sick!

And it's NOT illegal and it's NONE of your business and your religious beliefs MATTER only to you and if you view anal sex as a sickness or a sin or both......then DON'T do it..........but your beliefs and opinions CAN'T tell others how to live their lives!!!!

Murder is a crime because it HARMS another human being by taking a life, usually is a violent act.....anal sex is usually between 2 CONSENTING adults......and is NONE of your business!!!

And NEITHER issue is the topic of this thread.....why do EVANGELISTIC FUNDAMENTALIST make every thread revolve around their flipping religious beliefs?

in other words u want to only hear what u believe in--normal for atheists because the truth does not match their life styles--it would not bother me if is wasn't my business but since perverts do not only want their fun but try and make it the norm by pushing it in other peoples faces it makes it our business--the only reason I used murder was not because of murder being a crime was that if murders or queers make laws it would be in their favor idiot--

Normally I'd agree, but this thread is about religious beliefs. It's about the pope and his stance on homosexual priest.

All comments are interesting! But! Think about it, what is "the Law"?

Is it the "rules" that the ruling class pass to cement thier control over the Proles?

I know, in the USA, Judges are political hacks.

Please listen to a great American/Human Being.
