How very enlightened of you. Nothing wrong Biblically with being gay. Solved.
It's plagiarized directly out of "Listverse" anyway, it would be helpful when someone copies and paste verbatim to use quotation marks.

Anyway if it's all basically an allegory, it is symbolic and holds little or any factual information, who in their right mind would cling onto precepts from a book to judge anyones sexual orientation that is mythical and allegorical anyway?

That's why I compare it with Grimms Fairy tales, the bases of any premise can't be based on mythical tales and symbolism.

Why should those be equal things?

I don't want to be killed, you don't want to be killed, we cannot maintain a civil, successful society if people are allowed to freely kill each other. Killing violates a person's consent.

But homosexuality does not. If you don't want to be gay, that's fine with me. I won't try to force you to be gay. But if that's what I want for my life, I should have the freedom to pursue it. It does not violate my consent, or the consent of my partner.

Killing and homosexuality are not at all similar. Condemning homosexuality is a violation of personal freedom. You should have the freedom to express love with whatever consenting adults you choose, and so should I.

Prove it. How do you measure that? What device will show the scale of corruption? What gives you the authority to police other people's spirituality? Where are the laws which dictate the level of spiritual purity that citizens must keep?

Human rights are unstoppable. You aren't going to be able to create any new laws which dictate how people must pursue happiness. The "mind corruption" comes from misunderstanding the Constitution, and thinking that you have the right to suppress how other people live their lives.

You remind me of this sweet, mentally retarded little old dog called Rick In kansas. He had an IQ that barely allowed him to function. Considering what God gave you, that's amazing. I feel sorry because you are using the amount of talent God gave you in the wrong way promoting homosexuality and somehow trying to relate that to human rights.
But you know what, with Obama being the US President, it's no wonder that shitty comments like yours and gay marriages are getting released. Sad but true.

You lost the argument that most wars are because of religion, so you resort to natural disasters as caused by religion? Get some help, you are totally confused in life.

That's your argument? Do you even read what is posted, or do you pull something out of the air to respond to. I ASKED you if YOU include in the discussion elements of disaster that at least in the Bible, are represented to be of G*d's hands.? And you're answer is, I'm confused?

Maybe so - your'e going to have to tell me in more detail what you actually believe out of the Bible. Was the great flood brought on by the divine, or was there just a flood? Personally, I don't care one way or the other, but what I read is pretty clear on that. So what do you think?

Do you not believe in hell? Is hell a natural disaster?

Fill me in. An argument cannot be won or lost when only one person is participating. What I have done thus far is bring up incidences to consider, and ask for YOUR opinion on whether they should be included.?

THIS is rational dialogue? Is it any wonder that your side can't find a legal victory, if this is the strength of your arguments?

I don't know anything about gods, I've never seen or spoken to one.

But if there IS a God, then he made me homosexual. I wasn't a prepubescent boy making his OWN decisions about who he would be attracted to. Were you?

But if there is a God, and heterosexuality is what he wants for me, then it should be a simple task for an omnipotent being to arrange that. He doesn't HAVE to create people who feel desires that he then forbids. He should just make straight people, and his problems would be solved.

But human rights absolutely dictate that I should have the freedom to guide the course of my own life, so long as I'm not harming anyone. Neither you nor God has any cause to punish people who do that.

The next president won't have any power to stop us. Obama isn't the one making gay marriages possible, the Constitution is doing that. No president, not even a Republican one, can go against the Constitution. After Obama leaves office, you aren't going to see a reversal on these decisions. Our marriages are here to stay.

Verily verily. And people are giving me crap for my comments seriously?! But you know what, I think If homosexuality were created and ordered by god in the bible you gay guys and lesbians would become heterosexual overnight.
