No, I don't hate gays.

My official position on homosexuality is that I accept it in our society and I accept the individuals and their freedoms, I don't see homosexuality as normal, though.

Perhaps some gays don't see heterosexuality as normal....

hmmm

.. finally, some honesty ..

.. you find feminine men disgusting and find comfort in traditional masculine roles. That's how God intended it, right ??..

.. what about a gay man who conforms to your gender expectations? Is a gay lumberjack cool ??..

.. you perceive swishy men to be like women, right? That's an issue of gender binaries and your perception that being a man is better than being a woman, the subservient role ..

.. women are made to f*ck. You certainly wouldn't let anyone f*ck you, right? The thought of it disgusts you, that's a woman's role, right ??..

Topix atheists are seriously lacking in something. Like intelligence and logic.

People are born animals. They have to be trained to be "humans". Training takes societal discipline.

Stupid Topix atheists have this weird idea people are born "holy", and will grow up to be saints all on their own.

Have you seen this, Buck?
"The Vatican claims Darwin's theory of evolution is compatible with Christianity
The Vatican has admitted that Charles Darwin's theory of evolution should not have been dismissed and claimed it is compatible with the Christian view of Creation."
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/religion/4588...
Without reading the article, it takes a lot of imagination to make Darwin's theory "compatible with the Christian view of Creation".

What is ended up with is inevitably, not "Darwinism".

Very enlightening.
What would your god to to somebody that he hates if he could hate that is worse than keeping them conscious forever to suffer excruciating pain? I don't really care what other people call the willingness to do that to somebody. That defines hate orders of magnitude beyond anything I have ever experienced. I'm imagining having that power when I was in third grade, and hating somebody enough to do that to them when I was capable of that degree of hatred. But I would have forgiven them by now, or if not by now, certainly by a hundred years from now - a thousand tops.
It's pretty futile for you to try to define the actions ascribed to your god as anything less than hatred simply by saying that it's not hatred. Do you expect others to just say, "Oh.My bad," or to see you as somebody so morally compromised by his religious training that he can't tell love from hate?
" ‘Yet I have loved Jacob, but Esau I have hated, and I have turned his mountains into a wasteland and left his inheritance to the desert jackals.’-Malachi 1:3

Yeah, because Jesus never hung out with sinners or anything.
Luke 6:37 - Jesus said "Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven."
Why do so many self-described Christians ignore the very basic things Jesus said?
Because institutional Christianity isn't remotely related to Jesus.

It is the gospel of Paul and Roman aristocracy.

<quoted text>No. God first hate liars, either.

According to Proverbs, here is what God hates:

1. haughty eyes
2. a lying tongue
3. hands that shed innocent blood
4. a heart that devises wicked schemes
5. feet that are quick to rush into evil
6. a false witness who pours out lies
7. a person who stirs up conflict in the community

Notice that there's only two there that are people. Liars aren't one of them. Neither are gays.
So.... Your alleged god hates you and all your fellow christians.

No wonder y'all so messed up, your own imaginary three in one god hates you and your imaginary satan god is always trying to trip you up.

Why are you so content to be a slave?
