Nevertheless [the sentence put upon women of pain in motherhood does not hinder their souls’ salvation, and] they will be saved [eternally] if they continue in faith and love and holiness with self-control,[saved indeed][a]through the Childbearing or by the birth of the divine Child.
Sorry, but that is not what that passage says. Let's try again.

"11 A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. 15 But women will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety."

Again, the key passage here is "But women will be saved through childbearing". The clear implication being that a childless woman is doomed.

Are childless heterosexual unions fake tax-dodgers too?

You should get out more.
"In May, 2004, the NGLTF (National Lesbian and Gay Task Force) announced a new alliance with the Woodhull Freedom Foundation (WFF), a sexual liberation group that seeks to abolish laws against prostitution; overturn “age of consent” laws protecting children from adult sexual predators; and seeks to legalize homosexual sodomy in public restrooms and
parks. The WFF also seeks to ban all abstinence-only sex education materials in our nation’s public schools."
Sorry, is it the NGLTF or the WFF which you are asserting represent the intentions of all gay people? Or maybe both?

ROTFLMAO! You really can't get past the logical fallacy of generalizing, can you? Bless your heart.

how can humans who are supposed to be ssssoooo refined and conscientious completely reject their Magnificently Good Creator for some absurd theory that they randomly developed from slime?
it seems that such are destined to repeat history and suffer the same fate as those before the flood and as those of sodom and gomorrah.....
Is slime inferior to dirt?

You have freedom of speech. You just don't like the fact that people can respond to what you say critically. Grow a pair.

We were not discussing "all gay people".

You made the assertion that the only gay agenda was equal rights, and mocked concern that there was a gay agenda beyond that.

Obviously, you were wrong.

So now you slide your goalposts.

Logic isn't your thing, is it? Apparently (assuming that what you posted was accurate, which is by no means assured) those two groups have an agenda. They don't apply to all gay people, obviously.

It would be easy to post, say, certain Christian individuals or groups which have agendas which are pretty repellent. They would not be representing any Christian beyond themselves than your silly anecdotal example.

Refuting your assertion only requires proving that there is a gay agenda apart from equal rights, not that all gays have an agenda.

And if I asserted that the Christian agenda is restricted to something pure, and you showed Christian groups advocating other things, you would prove me wrong.

That's why, unlike you, I'm careful not to assert things that are untrue.

All you have provided is a single Atheist (Stalin) to argue against 1700 years of Christian atrocities.
