You're right about everything you have posted on Topix. And you are right about me, I am a disturbed troll. I apologize to all gay people for all my offensive posts. Please, I beg you, accept my apology and grant me forgiveness.
Thanks. It is in the past.

I would like to invite you to where I live in Knoxville, TN so that can personally carry out what you believe is God's commandment and "dispatch" me from the planet. If you have the gall to come here day after day and talk about gays not being natural; quoting from scripture, etc. then you shouldn't have a problem pulling the trigger to eliminate me. According to your interpretation of scripture, you'd be doing the world a favor.
You can send me a private message here on TOPIX and I will make sure that you have my address.
Should we set a date?
Now, if you want to consult God--instead of scripture--on how you should deal with homosexuals, that's fine by me. That's what I have encouraged you to do all along.
But if you are a strict adherent to scripture, then you know what you must do.

Hope that helps. But maybe you can explain yourself better.

It is all very well to point out that important scientists, like Louis Pasteur, have been Catholic. More revealing is how many priests have distinguished themselves in the sciences. It turns out, for instance, that the first person to measure the rate of acceleration of a freely falling body was Fr. Giambattista Riccioli. The man who has been called the father of Egyptology was Fr. Athanasius Kircher (also called "master of a hundred arts" for the breadth of his knowledge). Fr. Roger Boscovich, who has been described as "the greatest genius that Yugoslavia ever produced," has often been called the father of modern atomic theory.

In the sciences it was the Jesuits in particular who distinguished themselves; some 35 craters on the moon, in fact, are named after Jesuit scientists and mathematicians.

By the eighteenth century, the Jesuits

had contributed to the development of pendulum clocks, pantographs, barometers, reflecting telescopes and microscopes, to scientific fields as various as magnetism, optics and electricity. They observed, in some cases before anyone else, the colored bands on Jupiterís surface, the Andromeda nebula and Saturnís rings. They theorized about the circulation of the blood (independently of Harvey), the theoretical possibility of flight, the way the moon effected the tides, and the wave-like nature of light. Star maps of the southern hemisphere, symbolic logic, flood-control measures on the Po and Adige rivers, introducing plus and minus signs into Italian mathematics ó all were typical Jesuit achievements, and scientists as influential as Fermat, Huygens, Leibniz and Newton were not alone in counting Jesuits among their most prized correspondents [Jonathan Wright, The Jesuits, 2004, p. 189].

Seismology, the study of earthquakes, has been so dominated by Jesuits that it has become known as "the Jesuit science." It was a Jesuit, Fr. J.B. Macelwane, who wrote Introduction to Theoretical Seismology, the first seismology textbook in America, in 1936. To this day, the American Geophysical Union, which Fr. Macelwane once headed, gives an annual medal named after this brilliant priest to a promising young geophysicist.

The Jesuits were also the first to introduce Western science into such far-off places as China and India. In seventeenth-century China in particular, Jesuits introduced a substantial body of scientific knowledge and a vast array of mental tools for understanding the physical universe, including the Euclidean geometry that made planetary motion comprehensible. Jesuits made important contributions to the scientific knowledge and infrastructure of other less developed nations not only in Asia but also in Africa and Central and South America. Beginning in the nineteenth century, these continents saw the opening of Jesuit observatories that studied such fields as astronomy, geomagnetism, meteorology, seismology, and solar physics. Such observatories provided these places with accurate time keeping, weather forecasts (particularly important in the cases of hurricanes and typhoons), earthquake risk assessments, and cartography. In Central and South America the Jesuits worked primarily in meteorology and seismology, essentially laying the foundations of those disciplines there. The scientific development of these countries, ranging from Ecuador to Lebanon to the Philippines, is indebted to Jesuit efforts.

But I do support my fellow Americans because I believe in this country, liberty, freedom and justice.

The "deviation" from Scripture is entirely yours. There are no verses in the Bible that legitimately translate into a condemnation of homosexuality. None. Quite the contrary, the Bible CELEBRATES the marriage of David and Johnathan in 1 Samuel.
Secondly, all of the valid science to date shows a genetic connection to sexual orientation. So, if it is not just the random shuffling of genes for evolution, then it is the choice of the Divine. Sure, it is a man and a woman to make a baby, but the world most certainly does NOT need every person reproducing. Having a few non-breeders is a GOOD thing!
Oh, and finally, the Bible does not say abortion is a sin. The only place it really mentions it, it is no big deal.
I do agree with you except the part about David and Johnathan.

sheesh, you must have gone to the wrong site because there is testimonies and also doctors that have research genes and homosexuals did not get a gene to make them what they are. We will not discuss this with you any longer. We hope that we have not offended you in anyway, but my husband and I cannot change what God has revealed to us through His Scriptures. Thank you for all your comments, for we are still searching ourselves to know how much more we can serve our Creator.
Are you serious? Why do you speak as "we", you are creepy.

Heartandmind, I am sorry We cannot
We love children for we raised 3 of them and for you to suggest that we are hurting them is totally wrong, for we believe that we are helping them by giving them a great start in knowing God through His Son Jesus that can be in their lives and help them with every need including not becoming homosexuals or doing anything that is against our Creator. For this is who we are and this is what God is telling us to do for without God in our lives, we are nothing, for he did it all when he sent His Son to die for our sins and the sins of the world.
we hear you, we know you nuts. We are here where are you? I think you and we hurt your kids? Do we have sex after that? You need a spanking you been bad talking all that carp about what is not your business, I think you want the rear entry. And this is how you ask him.
