Holy Scripture states "Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind. It is an abomination. Leviticus 18:22.
All Three of the Worlds major religions - Christianity, Judaism and Islam recognize the Book of Leviticus as coming from God so the homosexuals will lose in the end as God always wins.
If God always wins, then why do we have The Democratic Party ?! Explain THAT, smartypants !

Oy! Antisemitism too? Should have known. You are such a hater.
You KNOW I am Jewish, I've said it many times here and gotten tons of grief over it for most of the haters aren't as...uh,aren't as SENSITIVE and TOLERANT as you are, I mentioned it for they make the best lawyers.

Your pointless goading is NOT going to upset me, so might as well hang it up.

This kind of discrimination has to be stopped the same way racism is stopped in its tracks -- by immediately shaming those who assume they are playing to a receptive audience. They need to learn that bigoted behavior is unacceptable to the vast majority of ordinary people with whom they come into daily contact, not just the law. Sure, it drives their true attitudes into hiding, but that's OK, because in time they are replaced by younger generations who have never known the old prejudices. It's an ongoing process of education, at which America has been very good.
There's a big gap in your education then. You need to learn that your bigoted behavior against spiritual people is no better than anyone else's bigoted behavior.

This is true. If you lie with a man as you would lie with a woman, then you're doing it really wrong. And it could explain why you're not getting as many dates as you'd like.

Frankie, why are you hanging out on this gay site? Huh? Some unresolved issues? And calling me any name with the word "fruit" in it, as you've done throughout this thread with me and others, just tells us which grade level you reached before dropping out of school. Seventh grade, right?

That's what they all say when they have no argument. "What are you doing on this gay site?"

Same thing you're doing, Power Ranger! The exact same thing. So climb down off your swishy horse.

YUK!YUK!YUK!

Firstly, Dude, do you even know the dictionary definition of a 'bigot'? The primary definition according to the Oxford English Dictionary is: "A hypocritical or superstitious adherent of religion. As an atheist I can be a lot things, yes, but a 'bigot'? No.

Secondly, I have never raised any complaint against spiritual people per se. If you go back and read my comments you will notice that I have it against religionists who are very outspoken in their condemnation of persons who were born homosexual. That is not the typical behavior of a spiritual person, but of a bigot. Spiritual people are seldom bigots, whereas religionists are often bigoted in their narrow-minded opinions.

For the record, here is the OED's definition of a 'religionist':
"A person devoted to religion; esp. an affectedly or exaggeratedly religious person." These are the types to whom Jesus' words refer: "And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by men." (Matt. 6:5 RSV).

I believe many of the trolls who parade their religion on this forum for all the see also fit that description 100%. They are the type of people I call 'bigots', not religious people in general. I respect everyone's right to practice the religion of their choice, just not in my face.

Let me rephrase my earlier statement: I am foolish for trying to engage someone, who considers himself wise, in an intellectual debate.

No one likes a braggart, it cheapens your cachet, and unless you include your diplomas, how can we know you are for real?

I'm the king of England and have a billion dollars, in my checking account alone. See how pleasant that is to sit through?
