Many gay folks have given their hearts to Jesus and believe in a hereafter. I suspect, if you open your heart a bit and trust in God's grace, and in the wisdom of his plans for others, you will be meeting some of them later on.
That is possible of course, but only if you refrain from amoral behavior with men or women.

The Democrats of the South were the back bone of the Confederates who tried to separate states out of the United States.

That's elementary education material. Up until the Democratic Convention in 1968 the South voted straight democrat at the convention the Southern Democrats walked out of the Convention because of the Civil And Voting Acts plank adopted by the Democrats. The Southern Democrats converted to Republican at that time.

The Southern Democrats were champions of Segregation and better know as Dixiecats. Since pledging their loyalty with an oath to the United States during a period from 1864 to 1866 and restoring their seats in Congress, the Southern Democrats, swore to work toward reemerging Segregation in the South.

In 1964 they begin Converting to Republican by 1968 the conversion was complete and like wise swore to overturn Voting and Civil Rights and have worked feverishly until this day to make their agenda come to bare. The South votes blankly republican because it's their heritage as supremacist to subjugate minority rights and vote and refuses to see those citizens as their equal.

Their ultimate objective is to re-institute Apartheid throughout the South and, if they could America.

We know you can not handle the truth, even when it is printed out for you. I can not make this up, since it is HISTORY. You can try to hide it under the covers and blame the Reps - we all know the truth. You are not as bright as you like to think you are. You need to do some research and find out for yourself about the history of America Go back and read what I copied and pasted about the Dems and the KKK. They even terrorized the Reps, but you just do not want to hear the truth.

Yes, I will see them if they have given their hearts to Jesus. I do believe America is being turned into a Sodom and Gomorrah. The teaching that are going on in colleges now are blasting Jesus. Here is data from Florida:

Florida University Under Fire Over 'Jesus' Classroom Exercise
Wednesday, 27 Mar 2013 07:46 PM
Florida university has come under fire over a professor's controversial classroom assignment that asked his students to write "Jesus" on a sheet of paper and then to step on it.
The incident earlier this month at the Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida, has prompted the school to issue an apology and led to a call from Florida's Republican Governor Rick Scott for an investigation.
"I am deeply disappointed in the recent actions of Florida Atlantic University faculty that raises significant questions over students' rights and the lessons being taught in our classrooms," Scott wrote in a letter to the head of Florida's state university board on Tuesday.
The classroom exercise was conducted as part of a course on intercultural communication at the public university.
It called for students to write the words "Jesus" in big letters on a piece of paper, place it on the floor and then to step on the paper. Students were then asked to describe how they felt.
School officials said the instructor told students they could choose whether to participate in the exercise, which was based on an example in a study guide to a course textbook and intended to provoke a discussion of cultural symbols.
In a recent statement, Florida Atlantic University said it will no longer use the exercise after it sparked criticism from some students.
"It was insensitive and unacceptable. Based on the offensive nature of the exercise, we will not use it again and have issued an apology to the community," the statement said. In his letter, Scott said he wanted more than just an apology from the school.
"The professor's lesson was offensive, and even intolerant, to Christians and those of all faiths who deserve to be respected as Americans entitled to religious freedom," he wrote.
"I'm requesting a report of the incident, how it was handled and a statement of the university's policies to ensure this type of 'lesson' will not occur again," Scott added.

well, being gay is a natural and gid-given trait, so I suspect He knows all about it.
Sin is a behavior. Being gay isn't. A sin harms the sinner or the one sinned against. Being gay harms no one. Sins stand between the sinner and God, harming their relationship. being gay is no barrier to a relationship with God.
If you believe that kids going through puberty have the magical ability to completely extinguish the attraction to the opposite gender, and completely replace it with attraction for the same gender, before they are even old enough to drive, then PLEASE tell us what mechanism they use.
Moat kids I know that age still sleep with nightlights and need to be reminded to wear their coats when it's cold.
The fact that so many of them seem to be doing this without ever having known a gay person should tell you something about your beliefs on the subject.
God didn't create us to be judgmental fools - we do that on our own.
What does God say about gay marriage, or put it another way , being gay? Why do you think he tells us that marriage is to be made up of a man and a woman. Saying lies as you're doing isn't helping yourself, just read your bible and stop pretending it's saying something it's not, because it's never going to say anything that you want it to, only what God has to say. Quit living a lie. Sin is a transgression against God and being gay is a sin against God.

Maybe you should read your Bible, Working for the Lord. Why are Christians so quick to assert that the Bible forbids homosexuality, while overlooking the other forbidden things? I bet you wear clothes made of more than one fabric, cut or shave your hair, and eat shellfish, all things that are not allowed according to the laws in Leviticus.

Well...the readoing is correct. the god of the christian cult does forbid homosexuality. the same mythical god also says slavery is OK. that same mythical god couldn't even get his own creation story right. that same mythical god also lied about the Noachian flood...proven to have never happened.

all cults are based on lies, just as this bible cult is. the problem isn't in the correct reading of this lie ridden book, but the fact that rational people would actually follow the cult when it has been proven time and time again to be a lie from the ground up...

Its all of the mantra without the book we look at and you don't. The gaia cult it is. Look at it all. Diseases spreading. Children out of wedlock massively. Single parents the norm. Drugs are a fact of everyday living. Every family affected now one way or the other by this madness we call equality without any responsible laws in an elitist agenda designed for world government. So you are right. It is just that what we got now is worse. And we will suffer as a nation for it as America will be something different soon enough.

what is the mantra without the book? what does that even mean?

The Earth is not a living entitiy (Gaia)

no, in fact, the b=more we get away from these stone-age cults, the better ou r nation gets.

look at all the countries that have the least amount of religious people...they have the highest standard of living, the healthiest, happiest citizenry, and the best educated kids.

the religious cults are holding us back.
