Homophile.

That's a new one for me.

It's almost derogatory sounding.

Almost.

No, of course not. I know they're gonna have sex. I know it's a sin, they know it's a sin.
I just want them to be absolutely certain about the woman before they get married.
I think I might be mixing a little secularism with Christianity.
I have no doubt I'll be answerable for it when my judgement comes.
Is it OK with you if the person they decided to live with first isn't a woman?

If it's just a roommate, yes.

If it's romantic, no.

Here's a problem that is fostered/promoted by the Christian belief system(not all Christian belief systems, just some).
Ar Ar has often said that it is -*sex outside of marriage*- that is condemned within Christianity. Many, but not all Christians will also say that - that - is the "sin" being committed >>>> sex outside of marriage.
And yet Christians are against same sex marriage.
They, in effect, create the situation that they say is the problem with people in same sex relationships.
If marriage was allowed within same sex relationships, would Christians then have no problem with same sex couples?
Doubtful.
To do so would remove an entire group of people that *some* Christians say they don't have a problem with, and can castigate at the same time.
<Christians> "...See?...the Jesus loves you and we as Christians love you, too, it's your sin we can't tolerate - sex outside of marriage is a no no....no matter what sex you are..."
I don't see how anyone's sex life is any of their business at all.

Why should anyone have to abide by other people's fantasy lives? If delusional psychopaths thought we should all go around stabbing people in the face because they have bugs crawling all over them, should we do that too? Hell no, the psychopaths would be locked up and pumped full of Thorazine.

This protection religinuts enjoy is something they should be grateful for.

Welcome.
Rape isn't rape.
Rape is rape. I provided two explicit examples. Dinah in Genesis 34. Dinah is raped by Shechem. The result is a massacre of a slew of Hivite males including the rapist. The rape of Tamar by her half brother Ammon. Ammon is later killed by the servants of Absalom. 2 Sam. 13. There is also forced rape depicted in Lamentations. When Judah was overtaken by the Babylonian army. Babylon is later judged. No longer exists.
Wives had conjugal rights.
Men had to have sex with their wives.
Exod. 21:10
Slavery & polygamy good.
Did not write that. I did write slavery was considered an act of mercy and was universal. Hebrew slavery was mild compared to the types the other countries practiced. Slavery was regulated for the benefit of the slave. Two basic types. Debt slavery which involved working off debt. Hebrew slaves released on year of Jubilee or when debt is paid off. Females different. To release is the equivalent of abandonment since they had less options. For the most part it was a marriage arraignment. You either deliberately distort my posts or you have comprehension problems. Do you enjoy depicting yourself as deceitful or stupid or both?

Actually, it's very relevant. Sex outside of marriage is what you claim is the "sin".
Tell me, what would the sin be if people were having sex within the boundaries of marriage, from the Christian perspective?
I know they think it's ok to diddle kids and cheat on their spouses. Does that help?

Churches are having to turn to technology to protect property.
Baby Jesus is just material stuff, but evidently there are those, like Topix atheists, that feel compelled to steal and probably use such to work out there issues. Some may steal them for icons to have in their house, but I would suspect you have a lot of pieces of Baby Jesus in places like a Topix atheist gathering all bloodied and broken up and defaced. Makes them feel empowered. Revenge on this symbol of small pox infecting murderous homophobic mass of humanity that cramps their style.
This theft was not such an issue before this neo-atheism arose.
Yes, they have many atheist preaching "gatherings", some even titled "The Gathering".



I see Seth is going grunge for this one. His rage allows him no rest in his efforts to discourage any participation in Christian activities, except those intended to subvert, like Bob's continued pew warming. Seth can't go to sleep at night if he hasn't made any disparaging comments about Christianity earlier in the day. Obsession can't begin to describe his behaviour.

I disagree, pointing out facts is hardly bigotry and if life was fair we would be burning them on stakes or beating their children for not being gay.

Stating facts is nothing in comparison to what their church does to society, while they all go right along with it.
