It's the same stance they've had for at least two years. Nothing new..with a couple of people who magically turn straight and a guy who tearfully describes how he didn't want to lose his family so he chose celibacy and lies instead...thrown in to reinforce the hate.

You cannot cite ANY Bible translation, ancient Bible text, or Judeo-Christian tradition that places in question these many explicit commands against all homosexual behavior found in both Testaments.
You are in denial of reality. These passages are extremely direct and there is no need for 'interpretation,' nor is there any rational 'interpretation' voiding their condemnations of all homosexual behavior.
The same applies for any acts of lust just for the sake of lust. There are no laws against love. According to Jesus, if you want to be technical, taught that even thinking about sex with someone you aren't married to is that same as doing it. That would make you as guilty before God as any homosexual every time you masturbated. Get the beam out of your own eye, you sinner!

Dave, the buy-bull itself condemns all work done on Satruday in the plainest of terms. So what? It also indicates that plants can grow without the sun, and the earth is flat. It's a bunch of Bronze Age myth and superstition.

"Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you an holy day, a sabbath of rest to the LORD: whosoever doeth work therein shall be put to death." Exodus 35:2

Seems clear to me. Work on Saturday, get tortured to death.

I copy/pasted that from http://bible.cc/exodus/35-2.htm
a Christian fundie site.

And here is exodus 31:15
"Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death."

Answer your own question. I'm posting like you. By the way, I'm a follower of Jesus Christ. I love him dearly. I just refuse to use him as an excuse to degrade or abuse others, as Jesus would want me to show his grace as his representative. You want to use him as a means to keep others down, or to make yourself feel better.

1 Peter 4:8
Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins.

We are suppose to be examples of his love, and grace.

I would set the standard to those churches that don't open their financial records for all to see. The LDS church does not. People should be able to freely give what they want to who they want. But they should also be able to do so with full knowledge.

IF you were actually a Christian you would support God's many commands against all homosexual behavior, helping to save others from hellfire. Obviously, you are instead a servant of Satan helping to take homosexuals to eternal damnation:
Leviticus 18:22 - You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.

You want me to support God's commandments, fine. But I'm not going to pick and chose which ones I'll support while ignoring the ones that apply to me, and you:

This what Jesus said:
Matt 5
21 “You have heard that the ancients were told,‘You shall not commit murder’ and ‘Whoever commits murder shall be liable to the court.’ 22 But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be guilty before the court; and whoever says to his brother,‘You good-for-nothing,’ shall be guilty before the supreme court; and whoever says,‘You fool,’ shall be guilty enough to go into the fiery hell. 23 Therefore if you are presenting your offering at the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your offering there before the altar and go; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and present your offering. 25 Make friends quickly with your opponent at law while you are with him on the way, so that your opponent may not hand you over to the judge, and the judge to the officer, and you be thrown into prison. 26 Truly I say to you, you will not come out of there until you have paid up the last cent.

27 “You have heard that it was said,‘You shall not commit adultery’; 28 but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye makes you stumble, tear it out and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 If your right hand makes you stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to go into hell.

31 “It was said,‘Whoever sends his wife away, let him give her a certificate of divorce’; 32 but I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except for the reason of unchastity, makes her commit adultery; and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

38 “You have heard that it was said,‘An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.’ 39 But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. 40 If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also. 41 Whoever forces you to go one mile, go with him two. 42 Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you.

43 “You have heard that it was said,‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 If you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? 48 Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

How many are you guilty of? Ask yourself that. Because if you live under the law and put the hope of your salvation by obeying the law, it only takes one sin to keep you out of the Kingdom of Heaven. In fact, if you break one law, you have broken them all. Have you pucked your eye out? Have you cut off your hand? If no, then you are guilty before God and will be cast into Hell come judgement day. That isn't me speaking, but Jesus Christ. You need to learn to use the standards you judge others to take a close look at yourself. You want the law to judge you? Here it is.

It only gets worst for Mormons.
