Given the ongoing debate about same-sex marriage, it is time I looked at the two Testaments to remind myself why belief is so hard for me to embrace.

Wonder what will happen to Caleb if everybody agreed with him in his view (I have no problem with his view.).
When that said, wonder what will happen if everybody agreed with him.
Would he be happy then?
He seems to be an angry and aggressive man?
If he would be as angry, lonely and depressed? when everybody agreed with him, what would it help him?
If he got very happy then, does it mean that he is dependant on other people to get happy and not get his happiness from God?
Probably not. His kind must always live at another's expense. His kind do ethnic cleansing and fly planes into buildings.

<quoted text>You are obviously a little touchy about once again being proven to be a liar.
If you're not interested in the Bible, a book that repeatedly condemns your lifestyle choice in the plainest of terms and in both Testaments, why are you here trolling?
Your Book of Lies sucks just as much as you do. Why would anyone believe such nonsense?

<quoted text>Your bigotry and preference for perversion over God blind your view.
Why do you post on this sort of thread, if you prefer your perversion to God?
because it's a thread about homosexuality, you dolt!

why do you hang around where you obviously know nothing and won't learn anything?

<quoted text>You are the bigot, posting hate for what others hold sacred.
The Bible repeatedly condemns your perverted lifestyle choice.
You'll never change this fact, and obviously can't just walk away because of your horrible guilt in choosing to live in rebellion against God, shaming yourself and your family.
Leviticus 18:22 - You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.
Leviticus 20:13 - If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their blood guiltiness is upon them.
Romans 1:26-27 - For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
I Corinthians 6:9 (NIV)- Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
I Timothy 1:8-11 (NASB)- "But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted."
here's a thought. you adhere to these and THEN you can point fingers about the passages you think everyone else needs to adhere to!

Luke 6:31 And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.

Romans 12:10 Love one another with brotherly affection. Out do one another in showing honor.

Ephesians 4:29-32 Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

Colossians 3:12-14 Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.

If you cared about others, you would warn them of hellfire, rather than trying to lead them to hell!
The Bible repeatedly condemns all homosexual behavior, as you well know.

and the bible also repeatedly gives admonishments on how to treat others, and YOU ignore them! what a fine upright and Christian example you are.
if you cared at all about how others viewed Christianity, you would take those admonishements to heart and adere to them, without fail. and i'm warning YOU of the hellfire YOU'LL face if you don't adhere to these instructions from God! if you ignore them, you'll burn in that same lake of fire you think all homosexuals will burn. now won't that be rich? you'll see all your frenemies in there, bobbing right along beside you.

so hang up that tiara, princess, and put on your big girl panties.

That's very funny, since your hell doesn't even exist and your Book of Lies is pure fantasy. Now what is your excuse again?
