All I can say is that homosexuals who create their own god´s are clearly in the wrong. Satan formulated perverted thoughts in the subconscious of homosexuals that being gay is ok and created by god.
It doesn't even matter if they actually did create their own gods. It's what we do. It's what we have always done. If homosexuals are wrong for this than so is everyone else who ever did it. We have created thousands upon thousands of gods and Yahweh is indeed included in this. Every god we know of was created by somebody originally. It's not like any real god ever came down to Earth and said, "Hi, this is what a god is and I am one of them". All deities are of human invention, just as their dark counterparts are. Satan never actually did anything because he isn't real. People don't need a boogeyman to blame the bad stuff on. We are perfectly capable of making bad or selfish decisions on our own. No need to blame them on an invisible boogeyman. The sooner we start taking responsibility for our actions, the better. Not only can you not show that this Yahweh character is loving, but you can't provide a single valid reason to believe he exist. You just have invested much in the lie and it makes sense that the more you have invested, the more you want to defend it. But that in no way makes it real, no matter how much you want it to be.

That's just a very ignorant statement that shows your prejudice mind doesn't really understand what being attracted to the same sex is really about. If you were to remove those God-goggles that you view the word through, you might actually have a chance at understanding.

The main reason was of course because the men from Sodom and the women from Gomorrah were heavily engaged in what we call homosexual activities nowadays. That´s why. Other reason were rape and killing.

Can anyone prove that Sodom and Gommorah even existed?

Or if they did, that it wasn't some natural disaster that was attributed to a god? The vague description of fire and brimstone could mean a volcano or meteor crash. It's so much more likely that it was a misunderstood event or that it never happened in the first place and is just a story used to show a gods wrath. But while we are on the subject, there is no evidence that the Egyptians ever enslaved the Jews/Hebrews or that a world wide flood ever occurred. The 6 day creation tale told in Genesis is full of flaws that reflects how little we understood about our universe at the time and so is the Garden story. A real god who created the universe would never have made such obvious mistakes. These are obviously man-made stories.

Have you ever had any kind of sexual content with a member of the same sex?

I can see disapproving of wild drunken orgies - but my marriage is nothing like that. We have lived together for 26 years as a kind, decent, loving, monogamous, upstanding, hard-working couple. We really are above reproach. That isn't the same thing as referred to above.

But if the god is evil or the message is ridiculously ignorant, you should be prepared for at least some mild backlash. First, don't you think we should have at least one good reason to think this stuff is real?

I have enjoyed the privilege of being a minister of the gospel for over 61 years....

Receiving backlash to me is nothing more than an occupational hazard.

I refuse offenses.....

You see......If i allow another to offend me ,....., from that point on.... they would be controlling

my thoughts, my response, my actions.... By being offended.... I would be relinquishing my

control to them .and I would no longer be..my own person...

.. I refuse to give any one that much power over me.

So let me ask you this. For most of that time, did you have a real job and pay taxes or did you live off of what the church collects during service like many do? That's all fine and dandy about your beliefs on control but you didn't provide a reason anyone should believe that religious mythology should be taken seriously.

If the act of sodomy is named after the city of Sodom which God destroyed because it was so foul and perverted, what sex act is named after Gomorrah? I've always wondered that

Sure he did, lol. You've been brainwashed by your faith. If it were true, that would make our god quite evil because you know there had to be innocent children there who in no way would have deserved it. Yahweh seems to have a habit of destroying his own creations. And he loves to smite those children, even the unborn. What a loving god he must be.....not.

Read your bible more carefully, I mean a REAL bible, like King James, not you comic book edition or "Bible For Dummies" Sodom's sins were really not spelled out as clearly as you wish. In those days kindness to strangers was highly touted and travelers were to be treated like family.

According to Ezekiel 16:49: "Behold this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom, pride, fullness of food, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughter, which she did not strengthen the land of the poor and the needy."

In other words, they were full of food and lazy and were against social welfare, sounds like the average republican to me.

As for the sexual acts, in those days rape was a political function. Rape is the ultimate degradation, male on female, male on male. Male prisoners were often raped to degrade them, usually by hetero males. It still goes on in primitive "societies".

Sodom was destroyed for her inhospitable behavior.

Plus, you IGNORE the weird and disgusting finish to the story of Lot and him being such a paragon of behavior. Less than 24 hours after he escaped and been widowed, he was busy FORNICATING with his two daughters, IMPREGNATING them, who he was willing to hand over to an angry mob the day before. If you think this is lovely behavior, well, I see. I doubt if you, or anyone you know, has read PAST the pillar of salt part of the Sodom story.
