Christ didn't speak out against homosexuality or same-sex marriage. He did speak out against judgment and mistreatment of your fellow man.
This first passage is Jesus Christ speaking out against homosexuality. Notice that He differentiates between adultery and sexual immorality - this is important to note because the term 'homosexuality' was not common during His time obviously, so He used the term sexual immorality - separate from adultery - to encompass homosexuality and any other sexual wickedness that is immoral:

Mark 7:21-22

"For from within, out of men's hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly."

This next passage is Jesus' affirmation of the traditional definition of marriage between one man and one woman. He even goes as far as referencing the story of Creation in which God created male and female. Notice how He specifies a man and wife, not a man and his partner or a woman and her partner:

Matthew 19:4-5

"Haven't you read," He replied, "that at the beginning the Creator 'made them male and female,' and said,'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh'?"

Awww. That's cute! You trying to apply the word bigotry to me!!! Dingleberry, when I try and pass legislation to prevent fundamentalists from marrying, or denying them their beliefs, or asking that they be treated differently than others, then you can come back to me with your accusations. You know, when I actually demonstrate the "utter intolerance" as it defines bigotry.
Until then, you just look like a childish fundie crybaby dolling out his fundie imaginary persecution card!!!!!!! You're so pathetic!!!
I forgot childish.'Greggy'? Really? How old are you.

He doesn't argue with you because you don't present an argument. Your assertion is an appeal to common practice--that same-sex marriage is not marriage. And since common practice is based on opinion, not on truth or fact, it is a false argument.
You call mating behavior and historical cross cultural and religious customs 'common practice'? Yes. However, most common practices are not opinion. They are exactly such because they are true.

I keep asking if you read what you write, you really should. I think you'd laugh too.

I simply and accurately noted Biblical instruction and historic Christian belief. It really is pretty simple and clear.

Jesus did speak out against both. Matthew 19.

Nice huh? Big D was a Coastie. Worthy of respect of course but he doesn't reciprocate. If you disagree with him, or if he simply doesn't like you, then you are not a real American in his book. Even if you are a combat veteran.

Sorry you feel that way. I don't. As an honorably discharged veteran, you are an American to me even though you are a condescending jackass.
And even though you are intolerant and bigoted.

The funny thing about you is that you seem to know so much about the gay subculture; especially as it relates to men. Well, that's not entirely accurate. You know about gay subculture circa 1980.
This begs the question; do you have a little sugar in your tank?
There's something very curious about you.
Fairly angry, allegedly straight man who comes to this site in order to bash gays.
You're trying to work through some kind of issue. I suspect that you have a characteristic that you don't like. You have an attraction to men. And you hate it. So you come here and bash gays as a means of self-punishment.
You offer little, if anything to the actual conversation that goes on here.
I think it's time you come clean.
I'm not trying to insult you. God knows that if you are gay or bisexual, I don't find that to be a flaw.
I do think your anger and negativity indicates some kind of inner turmoil.
I recommend that you seek some kind of therapy to figure this stuff out.
Just my opinion...
Why do you have to bve so insulting? You and I both know what an insult it is, to imply that someone is gay....
