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

.. so, being born blind or deaf is wrong ??.
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.

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.

So the only sex allowed by your God is when a married man and woman do so with the intention of having a baby?
What a sad, dour, joyless religion.
My doctor is a woman and yesterday I had a prostate exam.
It was the best date I have had in a while.
Didn't get a kiss good-bye, though.

Talk about mixed messages. LOL

Well stop bringing your sex life on the billboard if you no care

But they are not normal. If you think a blind or deaf person, living without two of their major senses in this world is as normal as people born into a world built for the function of all five senses, then you just stupid. And there is no fixing stupid.

How would that exclude gay people?
This isn't something I like talking, especially with someone who is gay, as my attitude is very much live and let live when it comes to this. I would also vote for gay marriage as this in not a theocracy and I feel Christians lost all rights to marriage when they included secular rights to it. And i think in a country where people marry for money or insurance or on TV for money or can order their bride through the mail is a country that has no right to suddenly claim sanctity of marriage. But with that said the Bible views the act of homosexuality as a sin

Now I would think the argument would be why compound the sin by encouraging non-committed sex. Although someone else might say why approve a sin so someone doesn't sin more?

So that's why I have no problem with people who abstain from voting. I would vote for it for the reasons listed as I feel it is not my place to force my religious requirements on someone else so long as they aren't hurting anyone

But that's pretty much all the different sides to it

I personally have no problem with two people who love each other engaging in an adult, consensual committed relationship.

Then again I have no problem beating someone up who slaps my girlfriend even if they no longer pose a threat

Point being I don't claim my morality is universal. But what I do legally anyway is between me and God and the same should be for others

Why not? Gay people love just like everyone else, they want to have relationships just like everyone else. Two men who love each other can be emotionally intimate and that's fine. Why can't a male couple who love each other and want to be physically intimate within their marriage be able to do so in exactly the same way as their straight married neighbors?
