The emphasis on marriage is so the sex will be monogamous
In theory anyway
How would that exclude gay people?

You made that leap not me

I was not even connecting the two

I am making the point it is specious reasoning to claim something is normal simply because the person doing so thinks it is normal

I saw a person born with no legs that learned to walk on his hands. Is it normal to walk on your hands instead of your feet?

I saw a guy with no hands that wrote with his feet. Is it normal to write with your feet?

You are the one equating everything that is abnormal with being wrong. Perhaps that is why you are making the argument that being normal and right to someone makes it normal and right in general

Whether something is right or wrong is judged on the action, not the perception of the one doing it. A pedophile thinks its natural to have sex with children. Does that make it right?

Abnormal in and of itself has no bearing on morality. If someone's body produces an abnormally low level of white-blood cells, do you think I am claiming that's wrong from a moral standpoint?

I think your pride won't let you concede what should be something very easy to agree with. Whatever standard society wants to use for what is moral, it should never be "well as long as the person doing it thinks it is"

And you are the one making it an insult to acknowledge someone is handicapped in some way. It started over feigned outrage to try to win some points in an argument and you have continued down that path and have now taken overly PC into the realm of absurdity

I think even you know it but you won't ever admit it

Why wouldn't God be just as OK marrying gay people as straight people?

Come on, two naked people who aren't conscience enough to know they are naked, a talking snake , and a forbidden fruit, if I am to interpret this as allegories then it can't be taken in a literal sense and is reduced to interesting myths, and even hen they aren't very interesting anymore.

Of course it can. Hire an editor. It's just a book.

Or even flawed?

I know I ranted about this before, but I gotta say it again.

Someone born blind is not flawed, they just experience the world differently that someone who can see. All of us have limited perceptions. There are many animals who have far better eyesight than humans do. Does that make humans flawed?

Likewise, someone born gay is no more flawed than a left-handed person is. They just experience the world differently.

People seem to mix up what is common vs. what is "normal". No one is in a majority in all things: we all belong to minorities by one definition or other. We all experience the world differently. No one has the right to judge another person's experience of the world as better or worse than theirs. It's just different. Judge not.

Sky -God obviously couldn't create many humans at once, he could create an entire Universe but he couldn't create more that two people in the beginning, which leaves me wondering about the immediate need for incest to procreate, and what in hell was the land of Nod?
I also take from your post that when I have sex in the future I should do it to honor God, it should be planting a flag on a mountain top in the name of a nation, " I perform this Cunnilingus in the name of Sky-God, all hail Sky-God !"
I generally don't respond to posters I don't know

Especially when they ask questions that I don't know how anyone could have based on my post

But I am feeling friendly and will make an exception

I believe Genesis is metaphorical. Just like Revelations is about visions or Isaiah is about prophesy or Psalms is about prayers. Some books follow themes

And what I said is I don't think having sex with someone you love dishonors God. And if God joined the marriage I can't see any objection to two people making love. Just so long as the focus of our physical desires do not outweigh our spiritual obligations. When we stat focusing on our physical wants and needs more than God or put them ahead of God is when it is considered a problem. It is never said we can't do anything we take pleasure from

when the Bible talks about giving way to the flesh it means sinning

That's an interesting point. Why did God only start with a single pair? Who would necessarily need to be incestuous?

Moreover, let's go back to your previous comment about sex and love (which are two entirely different things). Do you really think that only straight people are capable of loving each other? Surely not.
Jesus says love thy neighbor. so obviously everyone should love. But just because a man love another they can't go lay down in bed with each other like a man and woman and think it right.

Reliable sources and factual evidence are usually backed by empirical evidence, it's comical the way most competent people demand reliable sources, yet when it comes to religion all they need is some antiquated polygamous patriarchs writings, mix in some excellent myths, and base it all on allegories and parables and voila, holy writ.

So when people say " it's written in the Bible and the Bible is right" they aren't saying much.
