Not for Caleb and RevKen:
Caleb seems to be angry. He claims to be a man of God, but I can't see where in Scripture it says that anger is a fruit of the Spirit ;)
And RevKen seems to be insulting, have a "from above"-attitude and being arrogant. He also claims to be a man of God. Where in Scripture does it say that such qualities belong to those who fear the Lord?
Somebody find it?
brilliant post buddy.

Do you realize that 98% of your post START by calling someone a liar, or stating that they are lying?
Kindly remember, every time you're point a finger at someone, there are three fingers pointing back at you.
As an aside, have your ever tried masturbating with a finger in your butt? You might give it a try.:-)
Of course.

“In the beginning, God created the earth, and he looked upon it in his cosmic loneliness.

And God said, "Let Us make living creatures out of mud, so the mud can see what We have done." And God created every living creature that now moveth, and one was man. Mud as man alone could speak. God leaned close to mud as man sat, looked around, and spoke. "What is the purpose of all this?" he asked politely.

"Everything must have a purpose?" asked God.

"Certainly," said man.

"Then I leave it to you to think of one for all this," said God.

And He went away.”

Liar, are you claiming that "Wastewater" is your true identity? I suppose really it is, since that is what you consider yourself because of your choice of living in open rebellion against God's many commands against your homosexual lifestyle choice.
The Bible repeatedly condemns your homosexual lifestyle choice. You have failed to post anything rational to dispute this irrefutable *FACT*.

Not for RevKen:

As far as I can see: RevKen is full of shit; from-above-attitude, making fun of, ridiculing, arrogance and so on.

Why should somebody listen to a man with such problems?

Couldn't it be that those who follow him can be like him?

<quoted text>None of you hateful homofascists can refute the irrefutable fact that the Bible repeatedly condemns all homosexual behavior in the plainest of terms and in both Testaments.
A number of you seem to think that lying about me and my identity somehow covers up that fact, which of course is ludicrous.
But we have refuted it, Blanche, we have. You're just too thick to understand.
You ignored my question regarding masturbation. I'll bet you happen to believe that masturbation is also a sin.

Position of the Reform Jewish Movement
The Reform Movement has been an advocate of gay and lesbian rights since 1965, when the Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ) passed a resolution calling for the decriminalization of homosexuality. In 1977, the URJ and the CCAR passed their first resolutions dealing with this issue, calling for human rights for homosexuals. Since then, the URJ, CCAR, WRJ, CSA, and NFTY have passed resolutions dealing with issues specific to Reform Judaism, such as inclusion of gays and lesbians in the rabbinate and cantorate, as well as national issues, such as support for civil marriage, elimination of discrimination within the Armed Forces and the Boy Scouts, and support for explicit workplace non-discrimination and civil rights legislation. Gay, lesbian and bisexual outreach and inclusion has been of great importance to the Reform Movement in recent years. The URJ Task Force on Gay and Lesbian Inclusion, headed by the late Rabbi Julie Spitzer, created a manual called Kulanu (All of Us): A Program for Congregations Implementing Inclusion. This text is aimed at helping congregations include gay and lesbian members and families and deal with gay and lesbian issues. The URJ’s Department of Jewish Family Concerns also deals with gay and lesbian issues.

You have failed to read/digest/recognize what others have REPEATEDLY said about ancient texts and intentions. You're a fraud and a "fauxny". Kindly tell me what Jesus said regarding homosexuality.

Regarding masturbation, it doesn't surprise me that you would find it gross and profane. Really, you should give it the old college try. Rub one out, for Christ's sake.

I'm still waiting David, for the word in Hebrew or Aramaic or even Koine Greek that is the word for homosexual.

No links, it's easy, just provide the word that we now translate as homosexual.

One word.

No passages that have been rewritten, just one little word to prove your point....

Why can't you now cite *ANY* Bible translation, ancient Bible text, or Judeo-Christian tradition to the places in question the Bible's many direct commands against your homosexual lifestyle choice and your pathetic attempts to dress as a woman?
We're all waiting...

David can't do that. It would make too much sense.
