<quoted text> Just because part a doesn't fit part b doesn't mean it's a sin. We are all human and give consent about what we do to one another. So if you question other things in the Bible you might as well question that. I mean it makes no sense that humans would have homosexual tendencies and emotions for someone of the same sex that would never go away if it wasn't meant to be so. And if homosexuality was really a sin then why do gay people go to every extent to change their orientation and it still doesn't happen for as long as they live. Makes no sense at all, just like the other questionable things in the Bible. You pick and choose the parts you want so you wouldn't know if homosexuality was a sin or not.
I totally disagree! But clearly you are going to believe in anything that supports your decision for being gay

FACT: shame = Guilt = Anger = denial
and the cycle repeats

I agree that alot of what the Bible contains is very questionable! Only because man wrote it though, not GOD! I believe that much of it has just been used to scare the SHIT out of us. But I still believe in GOD! And at least most of what has been written in the Bible. And yes, being gay is a SIN!
please show chapter(s) and verse(s) where it states VERBATIM that being gay is a sin.....

or even cite ONE commandment where it says being gay is a sin (since the commandments are the very "rule book" and all).

oh i forgot...you CAN'T, cause it doesn't exist......keep cherry picking which verses of the bible to adhere to and summarily dismiss the rest

p.s. leviticus 18:22 is not a good place to start.....it doesn't say sin, and there is a list of things in leviticus that ARE listed as a sin....but we never see fundies protesting farmers, barber shops, red lobster, or bbq places.....and leviticus takes the time to call ALL THE OTHER things it lists as SINS....but when we get to gay folks....there are called an abomination.......

if it was a sin...why not just call it that while they are condemning those that enjoy a ham sandwich and shrimp cocktail, on sunday lunch break from over-farming your land.....then heading out to get a haircut......oh...and don't forget....not a sin to slip by canada and pick out some slaves or sell your daughter into slavery.

basically.....if you wanna hate a gay person...then say YOU HATE them....do not hide behind an ambiguous bible verse from a man made coping mechanism that prepares folks for a dirt nap no one can avoid

New York Pastor arrested for sexually assaulting two young girls
NEWARK — More than seven years after former associate pastor Lonny “Joe” Aleshire was arrested for sexually assaulting two girls, one testified in court for the first time about what happened.
The woman, now 22, described how her interaction with Aleshire, now 41, evolved from baby-sitting his children to having sex with him when she was 13 years old.

“I thought that he loved me and that I was so special,” she said.“Now, I’m made out to be a liar.”

The woman and her sister, who also was sexually assaulted by the former associate pastor of Licking Baptist Church in Hebron, filed a lawsuit in 2010, which culminated in a civil trial that started Tuesday.

Their attorney, Beverly Farlow, said Aleshire was liable for the harm he inflicted on the girls through his actions and the ridicule they received from his supporters.

“He is guilty in criminal court, and we are asking you to find him guilty in here, as well,” she said.

Aleshire’s attorney, Al Mokhtari, said his client was well-respected before he was accused of having a sexual relationship with the girls, and no one witnessed the incidents.

In November 2005, the two girls held hands with their relatives as they watched Aleshire be sentenced to seven years in prison after he pleaded guilty to six counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, three counts of sexual imposition and one count of rape.

Since 2005, Aleshire has filed multiple appeals, saying he thought he would be sentenced to three years in prison for his guilty pleas.

Aleshire’s goal in taking the plea deal was to get back to his children as soon as possible, Mokhtari said.

In 2011, Aleshire was indicted on three counts of perjury for pleading guilty under oath, then saying he was innocent in sworn statements. He admitted to committing perjury this past week and will be sentenced Wednesday.

The civil trial will continue today as well. The women and their parents seek compensation for the damage Aleshire imposed, Farlow said.

Are you kidding me? Why should I have to cite verses, when it has been done here already, very well I might add! And will be done again. I believe those people are taking a rest at this time. At least from this forum! If you think anyone here didn't see those posts, then you're wrong! Although maybe you chose to ignore them?

While Christians seem to enjoy arguing their belief that homosexuality is a sin, based on (ta-dah!) the bible (of all things), they fail to consider the obvious, that this set of documents describing accounts of events passed from one generation to another by verbal tradition from the bronze age might possibly be open to questions about validity.
It is also amusing that they show far less zeal arguing against violation of their ten commandments, suggesting that obeying these commandments is far less important than judging and condemning homosexuals.
You are right, but you still haven't answered how a fiction book, written and distorted by numerous authors and translations managed to describe radiation accurately 3000 years before scientists even knew it existed (Moses receiving the Law on the mountain with the Alien).

I have some other questions like that next.

no one has cited the first verse OR commandment that say's VERBATIM that being gay is a sin.....please prove me wrong.....but you can't because that verse and commandment does not exist......if your reading comprehension is that low after reading damn near 65,000 posts (and thinking people already did <your words>"very well, i might add".....which they didn't).......then you have bigger problems than being annoyed by gay people)

it seems you are just one of the "sheep" in this little debacle.....you just hate gay folks and are too lazy to do the research yourself.....so you just blindly follow the "weekend Shepherds)......and depend on THEM to bring up very weak points to argue.

just get with adam (neil) and bob (or is that just what they do)?.......they will show you how to drone on and on with the copy and paste method of debating a point (rather than use your own mind and speak from your own thoughts)......that way you don't even have to exert any effort to hate......since it is obvious you won't even research "your" point of view and try to articulate it with your own words

you have been weighed, measured, and found wanton.....

Heteros don't know nor do they understand simply because they are hetero and do not have a choice in the matter. I am a gay guy and I have emotional feelings towards other men as well as sexual feelings too. Can you choose how you feel emotionally about someone? I highly doubt it. Sure you could have sex with a woman instead of a man but you wouldn't have any emotional feelings to go along with that. This is how I know I am gay. What's it like to be gay you say? The same thing it feels like to be straight I'm assuming except that it's just someone of the same sex. You can't be gay, you can choose who you have sex with, but if you don't have the whole package(emotional and sexual feelings together), then your just confused. You see, my love for a guy is not lust, and I know that because I still feel the same way about him before AND after we've had sex. How can homosexuality be a sin if you can't choose how you feel about someone? Whenever you can choose to be gay with the full package, then you can get back with me and maybe then I will believe you when you say homosexuality is a sin. But as far as I'm concerned, NOBODY has yet to prove me wrong and choosen to become gay, then choosen to become straight again. So, prove me wrong...

What? There are only two chromosomes. Mine started out just fine and stayed the same, XX. Yours, OTOH, apparently had an activation malfunction that you just can't seem to accept. Maybe your Y chromosome is rather bent? lol.

And nobody gets out of this alive. So once you die, your wages are paid. Why be concerned about what others do then? Shouldn't each be concerned about bettering himself? ARen't you supposed to lead by example not drag by force?

Scouts has always been segregated because of sexual orientation. Common sense dictates it. No one is stopping the establishment of gay Scouts.

We already are seeing the consequences of mixing genders in the military. It is ignorant denial to think the same and worse consequences won't occur with homosexual orientation mixed. They still don't allow coed barracks, but they do with homosexuals.

Well obviously you know who Bob is! So if you missed the verses pertaining to homosexuality, don't expect me to cite these to you. I have not posted one Bible verse here yet, and I won't start now. But please feel free to post one that states it's okay to be a homosexual, or that it's okay to molest a child. Feel free. Knock yourself out!

And if you read all 65,000 posts yourself, you would know I don't go to church and have not gone to church for many years.
