Nope. Anyone can say who's a sinner. And they do.
So grow up.
And no, God is not all loving and caring and nurturing.
He is also quite often spiteful and vengeful and just cranky.
So if you want him to respect you and your sexual views, you too should be loving and cranky, in no particular order.
Well then all the quotes and scriptures bible thumpers want to throw at people are pointless since you have now set us clear on that. No more spewing of the all righteousness that is your "God".
If he is a spiteful and vengeful then surely being gay is no where near compared to half of the things he has done. And your love thy neighbor, and all the other holier than thou commands are baseless.

Hey, loser. You can't seem to read.
I'M not a "bible thumper".
I don't own one, never did. The only ones I've seen have been in hotels and whenever I saw one I'd leave a wad sticking the pages together.

You missed the key piece of advice:

GROW UP.

Sure, you can't do it today, but when you do you will look back at your jerk self of today and wince.

In the meantime, just go.

Your telling me to grow up? I never said you were a bible thumper just pointing out the flaws in your own statement. Learn to debate without insult and accept others have opinions that don't match your own. So please live by you own advice, grow up, learn to have a discussion without the child like insults in which I don't recall saying anything to you so uncalled for there, and well don't make statements that have holes in them. Not my fault you are incapable of doing such.

What a simpleton you are.

When somebody calls you a loser, that does mean he's "debating". He's stating a fact.
He doesn't care about your "arguments", because you are too lame to argue with.

Exactly right.
Unfortunately that troll is in love with me. Fatal attraction, or what?!!!

That troll, as you call me, thinks you are scum.
Everyone knows that but you pretend not to.
Why?
It's such a stupid thing to say.
You know you look stupid every time you say it, and
yet you will say it some more yet.
Because you ARE stupid.
Who on earth do you hope to convince that anyone anywhere loves you?
Anyone?
Anywhere?
If anyone anywhere loved you, then you wouldn't be here all the time groveling for love.

It sucks to be you Phil.

What a loser. Ha!

It's true Rosa,
whenever you say that a troll must "be in love with me" it makes people throw up in their mouth.
And think "what a sap".

Sorry, but that's how it is. Blatant begs for love simply cloy.

Sorry, bucko, but god is made up by man, and so is sin.
That doesn't mean sin "doesn't exist". Sins are prohibitions created like laws, and for the same general purpose.
Sins exist. They are those things proscribed by religious texts.
So it's entirely valid to ask the question.
You don't need a god to have religious texts.
They exist.

The main problem with this premise is .. getting homosexuals to admit that their lifestyle is deviant from 95+% of the universe.
Dear, we understand that being homosexual and/or engaging in same sex sexual behavior is not the norm of the species human and deviates from it. Any problems you choose to have with our deviating from that particular norm, your problems, not ours.

Sexual acts are for a purpose; procreation.
Um sweetie, while I have no personal experience in this, I'm well aware of any number of sexual acts among folk of the opposite sex, that if procreation is the only reason driving them, heterosexuality clearly makes folk stupid. Even I know you can't get a woman pregnant in those ways.

Really? Wow, I never realized that. Thank you. All my work to plan for my life in a system currently designed to work against me, nothing but instant gratification.
Edward Shaw wrote:
I can imagine that two same-sex humans might heartily esteem one another, live together, share household responsbilities, finances,.. in fact everything just LIKE married persons. But, why do they insist on acting out their deviancies?
Sweetie, your problems with our being homosexual and our engaging in sexual acts that hopefully go along with that, not our problem. While I'm here though, I might as well play with your mind for a moment. Sex with the intent of procreation, a deviancy from the norm of all sexual acts engaged in. Norm goes for the recreational over the procreational, he and his lady friend (they aren't married by the way) are doing what they can to hopefully avoid such an outcome.

Can't fool me; all homosexuals know they are deviant from the norm, but struggle with the word. If many catholic priests can [and do] live in celibacy, why can't the deviants at least keep quiet?
The reason we will no longer be quiet dear, is wonderful folk like you who keep on insisting on making your choice to have "issues" with what you fantasize our sex lives to be like, to be our problem by giving your "issues" the force of law over us. A lot of us have grown up getting bent over and f*cked against our will like this and aren't going to take it quietly and with a freaking smile on our face any longer. Your issues with our homosexuality, no longer our problem and we will no longer be happily get f*cked over by the law for absolutely no other reason than you your inability to cope with your own damn homoerotic fantasies. Do the world a favor, keep your legs crossed in the name of Jesus or at least avoid heterosexual sexual acts that have even the remotest possibility of resulting in procreation.

Oh, please. You bible-thumpers need to stay out of adults bedrooms. It's not your business, it's not god's business, it's not George W. Bush's business, it's not anyones business. The fact that you people are pathetic enough to think that you should have a say about what two CONCENTING ADULTS do in their bedroom is just rediculious. Homosexuality isn't evil, it isn't sick or disgusting or immoral, it is just different. They are not hurting anyone, and they are not forcing anything on anyone.
They are two concenting adults, and should be allowed to do what all other concenting adults are allowed to do. It's not even close to pedophilia, necrophilia, rape or beastiality, to those of you who are twisted or disturbed enough to think that they are at all related. You know why? Because those acts are about hurting, non-concent, and control. Homosexuality is exactly like heterosexuality, just instead of being attracted to the opposite sex, they are attracted to the same sex. Big f*ckin deal! They are two ADULT HUMANS doing what all other adult humans do. It is not a threat to your family, your marriage, or your life. It is just a different way of living.
Stay out of my bedroom, my friends bedroom, and anyone's bedroom who doesn't welcome you there. I don't need you telling me what is 'moral' and what isn't. I don't need you telling me what is 'natural' and what isn't. Worry about your own sex life, not mine.
All that being said, I am a heterosexual.
***So you're saying it's okay to make decisions, as long as they aren't made in YOUR bedroom...hypocrite!!

Harry Potter and Star Wars texts exist also. Does that mean that Hogwarts and the Rebel Alliance exist? Just because man invents a mythical entity, doesn't make it or what it supposedly said real. And as you stated in the first sentence of your reply, "man" made up god and sin. Therefor, no god, no sin. It is a made up concept. The word may exist, but the concept is null.

Btw, your "bucko" slur, only served to show your level of, or more appropriately, lack of, intelligence.

What is not null is your sick and deviant ways. You animals are all about sex and nothing else. You have a disease and should be put down like a rabid dog!

Boy you guys are predictable. Mr. should be a Miss. learn different spellings of names and different ways sexes can spell them. Secondly this is an open forum therefore I don't have to just go away because two bullies can't accept others opinions. If you can't deal with the fact some people are more in touch with reality than you then simply don't go to a forum where it's asking an opinionated question. So you can go away as well.

So what you are saying with your "sick and deviant ways", "you animals", "you have a disease" and "should be put down like a dog", is that you dislike 'heterosexuals? So when did you first discover that you were gay? And what started your hatred of straight people? You see, I'm heterosexual. I, unlike others, don't care what you do in the privacy of your own bedroom. If you choose to perform acts of homosexuality upon your partner, why should I care? My comment wasn't about homosexuality. It was addressing the concept of the fictional term 'sin'.

You just don't get it!

You have no idea how Topix works.

You made several REALLY STUPID assumptions:

- You assumed that the topic title was the entire topic. Wrong.

- You assumed that the topic title was addressed directly to YOU, that someone was waiting SIX YEARS for you to come in and answer them and then they would argue with you. Wrong.

- You assumed that in the SIX YEARS since the thread started that nobody else would be talking, so you could just enter the room, start talking, and everyone would be listening to you. Wrong. They are NOT listening to you.

They have changed the topic many times, and nobody cares about the boor entering the room.

I know you are a young kid, probably in high school.
Just imagine if you entered a party that had been in progress for hours and simply started talking ....
Got that image?
... and people told you to shut up and go away jerk.

Well, that's what happened here.

You came as a jerk and people told you to go away.
You ignored them, all SIX YEARS of them, so they fully intend to return the favor.

Get it yet?

No. Because boors never get it.
