No the bible states that homosexuality is a sin and that's the way it is. I also think that the people from A&E are sinners for taking up with the queers instead of Christians.

Robertson didn't say anything about "Queers" That is you talking! Robertson put gays into the company of others who are sinners, including adulterers and swindlers.

Im pretty sure that's what I said maybe you need to read a little better where I come from we call them queers and proud to do so. Queers are sinners and if you take up for them you are also a sinner.

You call them what ever you want, but don't say Mr Robertson called them queers, he is more educated. He called them GAY! Now you need to red what Phil said. Have a good night

What is sin?
Sin can be defined as “that sin and its guilt that we all possess in God’s eyes as a direct result of Adam’s sin in the Garden of Eden.” The doctrine of original sin focuses particularly on its effects on our nature and our standing before God, even before we are old enough to commit conscious sin.. All of us have sinned and come short of GODS GLORY! Every one of us!! Jesus was the only sinless person that ever walked upon the surface of this earth. Wew all have that built in sinful nature and we can not escape unless we turn our lives over to the Sinless GOD through our Lord Jesus Christ....

Leave it to the stupid straights on reality tv shows to once again show up and ruin it for themselves.Let me explain it to you.They all dress alike,are isolated in the woods away from other people,,are millionaires several times over, he's banded modern conveniences and have no generation gap living under the same roof .That is called A CULT.Just like the show with 19 kids is a religious cult,and that Breaking Amish,and My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding.Since it's all straight,white ones, nobody bothers to do anything about it.

The bible is a work of ancient fiction, and certainly should never be taken as an authority on anything. And the bible's two ugly sisters, the Qoran and the Talmud, are just as unreliable.

The number of folk who have a faith in them to be the truth. In another two thousand years, folk might have the faith that the collective works of JK Rowling are truth. Potterism could be the faith of the 40th Century.

Just because someone is on television does not make their opinions worth listening to. I am so sick and tired of how all these TV "celebrities" are fawned over and their every utterance treated as if it were made of gold. It doesn't matter whether they are liberal or conservative in their views. To make it even worse, there are TV shows which consist of nothing but celebrities interviewing other celebrities. The amount of mindless babble being beamed into our homes 24 hours a day is simply staggering.

Umm, no, the Phil was spot on about what the Bible says. Everyone knows that if you are a Christian you MUST know this ...either that or you are the dumbest Christian on the planet. I'm not a Christian, but I do respect other's beliefs especially when they are doing their best to live right and do good things for others. Understand that the Jewish/Christian/Muslim faiths view homosexuality as a mortal sin. If you don't believe that then why would you believe in their concept of Heaven and Hell? That would be illogical.

Jealous much? Actually, Phil feels the same way. The only people who made a big deal about it are the very people who shouldn't even believe in that faith. What idiots!
