How did you conclude that I havenít read Romans in its entirety?
Because of your comment that it speaks with, "great clarity about the sin of homosexuality". It does no such thing and if you had actually read it, you would know that. I mean you aren't here to bear false witness are you?

FYI, I not only have read it in its entirety but have done much research regarding the entire Bible, a book with which I am thoroughly acquainted.
And you still got it wrong.

You dare to falsely accuse me of praying that homosexuality is a sin. I donít recall ever hearing anyone making an asinine accusation such as that one.
I guess you didn't realize that all your stated religious beliefs are nothing more than your prayer that you are getting it right. You believe homosexuality a sin, that is your prayer. It's no false accusation, it's reality.
Eradicate Stupidity wrote:
Amazingly you make another false accusation. Precisely where in my post did I profess to be smarter than God? I suspect you have a serious problem with comprehension or else you simply have a propensity for make false claims.
Considering I never said you claimed to be smarter than God, you getting offended by your own reading of what I did say is just too funny.

I suggest before you make further attempts to ridicule my statement or those of others opposed to the perversion of homosexuality, you obtain sufficient knowledge as to what the Bible really says about it.
I really don't mind breaking this to you, but the Bible has absolutely NOTHING to say about homosexuality, let alone that it is a sin or a perversion. I thought you said you read it.

If you really want to "Eradicate Stupidity", you really should begin with your own.

<quoted text>I am not here to explain the entire Bible to one with such limited capacity for grasping the meaning of Biblical language. If you canít understand that many of the laws in the books you mentioned are civil and dietary laws, laws for healthy living and not part of religion, you wouldnít be able to comprehend my explanation. One example: Godís instructions about not eating certain foods had nothing to do with religious beliefs but were for the purpose of maintaining good health.
How would an assuming ass such as you know what I want or donít want? Obviously the LeVay excerpt has irritated you, so you are personally attacking me. Donít you know how to debate an issue without allowing your emotions to control your input? If Iím the bigot in this discussion, that puts you considerably lower on the totem pole. Itís interesting that every time one of you gets put on the spot, your lame response is to make personal attacks. You should mature before playing with the big boys, sonny.
Itíll take more than luck when you face God. Better start your planning for eternity now before itís too late.
It's not a question of my comprehending your explanation.

YOU were the one that said God's word (the Bible) was absolute. Now you want to explain to me why what you said wasn't accurate (as well as toss some insults in as well).

I merely demonstrated quite easily the arrogance and hypocrisy you show, as well as the inconsistency of your religious claims.

Was that grammatically correct enough for you to comprehend?

Take a look in the mirror when you start your namecalling, for you will find the deserved object for all your insults in there. You are very confused about what I said and didn't say. I won't waste anymore of my time with you, so enjoy spewing your nonsense.

You are either ignorant of the Bible or you are deliberately denying what is in it.Most have heard of the cities of Sodom and Gommorah, notorious hotbeds of homosexuality that God destroyed for their perversions, as recorded in Genesis 19:5-8. In addition to the fact the city was clearly destroyed by God because of homosexuality in the narrative of Gen 19, even the New Testament clearly states exactly the same thing in Jude 7 "Just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh, are exhibited as an example, in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire." Any sinner should always remember that the God who commands us to love our neighbour is the same God who will cast any and all unrepentant sinners into the "eternal fire". Here are more Bible quotes, Lev 18:22-23 "You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination." Lev 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." 1 Cor 6:9 "Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals" 1 Tim 1:9-10 "realizing the fact that (civil) law is not made for a righteous man, 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" Rom 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."
1 Cor 6:9 "Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals"

Now stop wasting my time with your games.
