Surely, you don't believe that CRAP that you just posted? Get off your support Gay rights even if you manipulate what we say and what the BIBLE says. I didn't write the BIBLE, I just try my best to follow it. Nor do I manipulate what it says to accommodate PROTECTING your feelings.Im sorry you are in denial and wont admit the lifestyle of being gay is wrong on all levels. Our Father, will forgive if you decide to stop the acts of Homosexuality, its up to you. But don't call us names and bash us for our beliefs. I read the BIBLE„ not parts of it but all of it. Yes, I too fall short of the glory of God but I don't blame others, nor do I decide that certain sins don't apply to me. You guys try and make all the excuses you can but the bottom line is ITS WRONG. I BELIEVE THE CORRECT WORDING IS, ABOMINATION. I don't hate anyone, just like you attempting to make a point. Stop your mission to rewrite the Bible yourself and read the original BIBLE maybe you will right your wrong before its to late. I want everyone who is homosexuals to turn from that lifestyle so they can be saved and forgiven. I love you and will be praying for you.
The correct translation is 'punishment'(not abomination)

If you straight people don't follow that entire paragraph in Leviticus faithfully; the Lord will turn you gay. He turns straight people gay several places in the New and Old Testaments

Not chalk, but apparently not a huge problem either:

officials from Chick-Fil-A have not filed a police report and... the restaurant’s employees pressure washed the spray-painted message off the building.
On the other hand, even our own spokespeople are hyperventilating and exaggerating the seriousness of this incident.

It concerns us because our community has been the victim of that kind of violence and continues to be. What if during this act of vandalism someone was shutting down the Chick-Fil-A or the cleaning crew was leaving and there had been a violent confrontation?

Don't make excuses for these little infantile flamers.

But if an anti gay bigot like yourself does the same thing, you would be saying "hip hip hooray!" I guess sinning is a thousand times worse when a homosexual commits one, right? Your double standards are laughable and pathetic.

So a fast food restaurant was vandalized with a pro-gay message?

I guess somebody wrote their phone number on the bathroom wall.

What is truly annoying, however, is that our entire community will be pilloried by the same people who shrug and ignore the millions (not an exaggeration, probably a gross underestimate) of hate messages against fags, dykes, and queens. When all of us commenting on this board are dead, the right will still be playing up the violent smashing of a good Christian woman's protest sign and a few scribbles on a wall. Meanwhile, they will completely ignore the arson against gay-friendly venues, beatings and killings of members of our community, and the invitation to violence from their own community leaders.
Christians have always been good at playing the victim. They're still talking about those lions as if it was some sort of holocaust.
That warrants repeating ... OFTEN.

We gave Homosexuals an inch by treating them like anyone else. Gays are protected from discrimination like all of us Americans.
With that, Gays are now walking all over my right to express myself as I wish!
Sexual perversion is disgusting to me no matter what human being ilk is practicing it!

Many scholars believe that the word "toevah", which has been mistranslated as "abomination", actually means "unclean", and that in the proper Levitical context, it refers to being "unclean like the Gentiles." Remember, Leviticus is concerned with the Jewish purity laws, those strictures which separated the "chosen people" from the rest of humanity. Thus, to eat shellfish or to wear a blended fabric was to behave like a non-Jew.

Just a footnote, for anyone who cares about these things.

I'm suggesting two Bible verses for you to look up and understand: "Judge not, lest YE be judged", and "Love thy neighbor as thyself".

Evidently no one stopped you from posting here. Free speech doesn't mean free from consequences.

You didn't "give" the GLBTQ community anything. We fought for it, and we won it.

And why do I get the sense that your definition of "sexual perversion" is anything you won't ADMIT doing, or having done?

LMAO! I'm not surprised the pervs have lashed out at Chik Fil A. They can't win a debate on the merits, so they resort to vandalism.
