Just like Republicans, they change the interpretation to support the bigotry. They really don't get it, do they?

The so-called " Christians " care nothing for Christ or his teachings .. The clever Romans knew quite well what they were doing when they threw them to the lions .

They claim to be Christians, so I suppose they would wish to be treated as they treat others.

Although they won't mind if we decide not to stone them, as they advocate for others, but instead toss them to lions.

WTF!!!! Ok, as a gay christian republican, I can say they these "pastors" are completly messed up in the head! That verse has nothing to do with being gay! That verse is meant for Christians not to condemn or judge! What church do they even belong to? Westboro?

For years the fundies have been trying to get gay people to marry straight people using threats; torture; fake 'therapy' ; and even fake 'exorcisms'
.
So now they are telling straight people not to marry gay people and throw rocks at us instead?
.
Fundies' rational thought processes have gone down the drain

Right! Though you're much too generous-hearted when you attribute " rational thought processes " to them ; I think they actually fear any rational mental effort ; it would marry very poorly with their fantastic philosophy .

And anyway, isn't that the story that was added far after the original translations? The one that most scholars don't believe to be true or original?

Figures. Incorrect interpretation of a disputed story.

From this day on, I will take the title of "Pastor Mark." I will have a church and followers who will "offer" money for the privilege of belonging to my "church.".
Then, I will "preach" my interpretations of antiquated scripture re-translated a hundred times through the years.
I will enjoy total freedom from taxation by my government and use those tax-free funds and my position to influence the political landscape and social policies.
I will enjoy the right of "free speech" while advocating the denial of rights to groups and organizations who are different in their beliefs.
I will be in the spotlight and enjoy celebrity status while expanding my followers who have similar beliefs.

Sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

It's just too bad Girl Scout cookies are so lousy these days. I used to love them when I was a kid, but they've bid out production to the cheapest manufacturer and destroyed the product.

My mother used to be Girl Scout Cookie Chairman for Western Pennsylvania. Cases of cookies filled our porch and our living room for two months every year.

The "Christians" who do the most finger pointing are the ones with the most skeletons in thier own closets. They preach love and kindness but never practice it.

I'm a healthcare professional. Have been for over 30 years. The main hospital that I worked for had the largest number of Psych beds in the city. I've known many Mental healthcare Providers and I've NEVER heard of the diagnosis of Queer Mental illness. You pulled that one out of your a$$ and you know it. Although I don't know how you could find the room with your big ole head so far up there as well.

It's so obvious, Queer mental illness.
Which page of the DSM-5 is that from, again? Oh, right, NONE, because it's not in there, and you're not a doctor.

You wouldn't think that a "voice of reason" would advocate INVENTING medical diagnoses with no training, no study, no degree, no research, no findings, no publications, no review and no support from any reputable medical or scientific body on the planet.
