Wouldn't it be funny if a PM actually came out and announced it exactly that way?

"Jesus didn't discriminate in who he associated with, etc".. As if pseudo-Christians have ever cared for anything Jesus said.. The power-mad, bloodthirsty Jehovah is more in keeping with what they consider a desirable "image" and "likeness"..

You can bet the Christians will be up in arms the first time a non-Christian discriminates against them legally! Funny how the laws apply to EVERYONE.

<quoted text>Jesus, THE WORD, repeatedly condemns and prohibits all homosexual behavior in the plainest of terms and in both Testaments:
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."
Certainly any Christian should be able to discriminate between good and evil!
Oh, CALEB, MAX, JAYCE, LUKE, DAVID MOORE, AUSTIN, RAND...they condemns LYING, yet you lie more often than a used car salesman. Why do you LIE so often? WHY????

What POSSIBLE purpose do you use all the LYING false names? Do you really think ANYONE is fooled by your LIES? I was ALL set to repent, but your LIES have distracted me and since you have already lied in your posts, then I can only think that all your iffy cut and pastes are also lies. Gee, thanks a LOT, CALEB, MAX, JAYCE, LUKE, DAVID MOORE, AUSTIN, RAND. You just RUINED my chance of salvation. Great.

not "They condemns" but "the bible condemns."

My computer is acting up and the cursor sometimes leaps from spot to spot and I don't always catch its errors and weird spellings and such. Is that what is wrong with you,(insert false name)? Your cursor hopping around, making up fake names?
