What you are trying to do is to delete his teaching from the scriputers and replacing it with human rights arguments to legalize the sin of homosexuality.
Do you obey every single law in the OT ?

All 613 of them ?

Never broke a single one ?

There is no valid morality apart from theist morality.
What does the belief of one deity or many deities have to do with a person's morality?

Morality should not be based on the fear of punishment in the "afterlife".

Einstein observed: "If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed. The further the spiritual evolution of mankind advances, the more certain it seems to me that the path to genuine religiosity does not lie through the fear of life, and the fear of death, and blind faith, but through striving after rational knowledge."

Furthermore, he noted "A God who rewards and punishes is inconceivable to him for the simple reason that a man's actions are determined by necessity, external and internal, so that in God's eyes he cannot be responsible, any more than an inanimate object is responsible for the motions it undergoes. Science has therefore been charged with undermining morality, but the charge is unjust. A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained."

<quoted text>Says who? You. If you have morality without God, then tell me where does it come from.
from an innate sense of what is right and wrong. Having read the Bible particularly the OT, I find it anything but moral

You are a liar, you care very much that others do not buy into your bull and your ignorance.
I find you quite retarded if you think that religious people are coming into your house at night and secretly changing your beliefs That makes you the retard.
Geesh, you really lack reading comprehension skills. I never said anything about evangelical fundamentalist christians trying to change my beliefs. what I said is that I am against them

TRYING TO IMPOSE THEIR BELIEFS ON ME.

There is a huge difference there oh mental midget.

The vast majority of opposition to same sex marriage are the right wing christians. so much so, they enact laws, like DOMA.

THAT IS AN EXAMPLE OF FUNDAMENTALIST CHRISTIANS TRYING TO IMPOSE THEIR BELIEFS AND DEFINITION OF WHAT MARRIAGE IS ON THE REST OF US.
As opposed to sneaking into my house at night and changing my beliefs of what marriage should be.

do you see and understand the difference idiot breath.

You also see fundamental right wing christians trying to lead public events with prayers, usually to that Jesus fellow.
or erecting public displays of the nativity and the cross on public/gov't land

tell me what other religions do that here. Never seen Hindu's Muslims, Jews etc so adamant about displaying their dogmatic symbols on public/gov't land

Really, so when was the last time an evangelical showed up at your door.
I guess you all ran off the Jehovah Witness, because for as long as I can remember, last time yesterday, the JW has been out passing out the Watchtower.
Learn the difference between talking/preaching one's faith to others and passing legislation based on one's faith.

When was the last time you saw a Jehovah Witness petition their congressman to pass legislation based on the Watchtower? when I politely explain to them I'm an atheist, and not interested, they leave. END OF FRIGGIN STORY

Are you beginning to comprehend the difference there yet?
TRUTHS BUSTER wrote:
<quoted text>
Yeah and India, Hindu has been at war with Pakistan, Muslim for over 50 years.
SO FRIGGIN WHAT?? What does that have to do with the price of tea in China, or how friggin stupid you are.

What goes on between India and Pakistan has nothing to do with what goes on here.
But let's look at the situation, maybe you're actually learn something.

The war between Pakistan and India has about as much to do with religion as the war between the IRA and Protestant Irish/England.

Its about territory. When the British left, they divided up Majority Muslim territory into Pakistan and Hindu territory into India. They left Kashmir up in the air, but put the minority Hindus in charge of the area which was mostly Muslim (77%). China also has claims to it and right now the Chinese have a military force inside of Indian territory near the Himalayas.

But again, its a moot point as we were discussing right wing christians imposing their dogmatic beliefs on their fellow americans.

Sadly, you gays have done this in the past and the last major attempt was in Germany and we saw what your gay pollution did in Germany. Not what you think, it was you gays who were killing the Jews and overseeing the concentration camps, because Hitler was a gay pedophile.
Not all gays are bad, some become ex-gays.
Dude, I'm guessing you get your facts from your butt.
Homosexuals were condemned to concentration camps and often executed. Hitler had a girlfriend, Ava Braun and to top it off, he was a CATHOLIC
your moniker is quite accurate as your post has very little in common with the truth

Nonsense. Jesus called the Law of Moses burdensome and made by man. For example he disregarded rituals such as cleaning hands prior to eating, ritualistic dietary requirements, and animal sacrifice. He disregarded divorce decrees. Homosexuality is not a sin according to the way Jesus taught. You can't pick and choose your way through the 613 laws and statutes. Either you follow the law 100% or you don't follow the law at all. Jesus simply preached on the Ten Commandments with regard to love and compassion. This is the Law with never changed.

Not really. You are just seeking a justification for your hatred and abuse of others. Who did Jesus hate?

New American Standard Bible (Đ1995)

So you are calling Jesus a liar because he was disobedient to the Law of Moses.

Isn't that exactly what you do Adam? You don't follow Jesus. You seek justification for your disobedience to the Lord's commands.

FIRST, every religion, including yours, creates their own gods. I'm pretty sure non christian religions believe your god is false.
Second what you read in Leviticus is someone's interpretation on what was written. I'm guessing the King James Version. Now if you were a scholar in ancient Hebrew and had a wealth of historical knowledge of the Jews, I would listen to what you had to say about the Old Testament Bible, but it would be a moot point. As religion has no bearing on our secular legal system.

lastly, where did your Jesus fellow say anything against gays??
where did Jesus condemn gays?
heck, I'm an atheist, but I'm pretty sure Jesus didn't ostracize any particular group or condemn them

now I'd like to see the original writing which was probably Ancient Greek and then have someone without a bias give me a translation.

where exactly is this quote from the bible?

We can insult you and make you feel shame by calling you immature. Or more ...

You are all children. School children.
Preschool children.
Not even children, but fetuses.
Not even those, but blastocysts.
Even smaller than that, simply ova and spermatozoa.
Busted, defective ova and spermatozoa.

Yes, that's the ticket!
