That's considered anecdotal information. Worthless, since it cannot be verified, much like deity accounts, not just the Christian deity, but all deity stories and accounts. One is no more reliable than another.
How many inmates did you interview during in processing?
Just how many inmates were you in contact with after they paroled?
Oh ya, I forgot... Silly me. Atheists can't use personal experiences as information....

But don't take my word for it:

"Prisoners may become involved with religion while incarcerated for a variety of reasons ranging from the materially pragmatic to the personal and spiritual. According to research conducted by sociologist Harry R. Dammer, some of the more prominent reasons include:

Gaining direction and meaning in one's life.
Improving one's concept of self.
Promoting personal behavioral change.
Gaining protection.
Meeting other inmates.
Meeting volunteers.
Obtaining prison resources."

<quoted text>Let me repost this for you, so you can point out any mention of sexual orientation. Also, which orientation did you mean, heterosexuals, bisexuals, homosexuals, or transsexuals? If you hate anyone because of their choice to sin, then you should get that fixed.
The natural mind may see nothing wrong with lustful thoughts. But the spirit of God supported with the word of God will tell you better. See the life of Cain for more on evil thoughts Sincerely ask God to break the power of evil thoughts. The stronghold behind lust is our thought life. Ask God to give you a deeper love for His Word and will. Let the love of God dictate your thought life and not the fleeting pleasures of lust
http://www.wordlibrary.co.uk/article.php ...
You are claiming that God hates people due to their sexual choices, sorry, God is not manipulated by your terminology of sexual orientations. There are two sexes, men and women, but all kinds of manners of sins.
Honestly, most Christians do not spend one minute thinking about gay bedroom sins. If you really thought so, how would we ever know until and unless you announce it.
I know that you gays love to lie, but let me help you. There has never been a ballot iniative, until today, where same sex marriage was voted on. In all the other cases, we simply inked in the always prescribed and common definition of marriage. It was then that you gays started your hatred towards all who believed contrary to your delusion. You started attackind old ladies, jumping on cars, defacing and burning churches, attacking the Mormon temple, harming businesses, and threatening people. Grow up, your actions get a reaction, so if you don't like the reaction then change your acions and leave our churches alone. Churches are a place a peace, not a place for burning, albeit the burning is symbiotic of the burning of those who never become part of the church body.
You gays are always attacking blacks, demeaning their plighht and struggle. Well, if you respected blacks you would know that required two constitutional amendments and over 100 years for the courts to enforce them.
I am religious, but not a fundamentalist. Where did I say God hated anyone?

I believe in the main messages of love and tolerance, I never attack blacks in fact I have commented against racism for years.

As for this: "Honestly, most Christians do not spend one minute thinking about gay bedroom sins."

LMAO! You judge their behavior in their private bedrooms, all the time!

good day, hypocrite.

I guess "being gay" isn't a sin, but acting on it is. There's no way around homosexual sex & not being a sin.

Mexico isn't America. Again, I don't care what they do, that's up to Mexicans.
A person born into anything does not choose to do so, they are born into it...
I should rephrase, maybe for you.
A person remains poor by choice. Some people born poor become very rich. Some people born poor stay poor. It's their choice.
.. RR, that's a great philosophy except its not the 1950s or 60s ..

.. yes, you can be born poor, pull yourself up by the bootstraps and become successful. Unfortunately, not everyone has the brain power, resources or opportunity to take advantage of a system that favors the rich. Is there always a choice? Sometimes the answer is a resounding "NO." ..

.. one of the organizations I support is KIVA. They loan $$ to the poor to buy laying chickens, stock a grocery store or buy a sewing machines to make/sell clothes. These people will never become wealthy but with a little help, can learn to support and sustain themselves, their family ..

.. are we living in a culture that has lost its spiritual center, a culture where the 'me' is more important than the 'we?' And, if so, is this egocentrism causing crime, decay of morals, etc.??..

.. is religious dogma partially at fault? The, "I'm right, you're wrong," or "my god is the only god," philosophy causing the unrest? Again, the constant bickering on Topix is a microcosm of society at large ..

.. are you, am I, responsible for the damaging posts of the TROLL OF MANY SOCKS? To a degree, yes. We, society, have failed him ..

boo-hoo... Yes I have seen it before. I feel no remorse for someone killing themselves for something they know they shouldn't be doing. There's no way a human can get to 300lbs (or more, even) without stuffing their fat face with food, food, and more food. And usually shit food. It's their own fault for being fat.
.. to a degree, you are correct, but, again we're way off focus in this debate ..

<quoted text>hard fact. No one is gay. That is like saying a person is a drug addict, but never acted on it. The addiction itself is the sin. God made man and woman, and man and woman made all they e other sin conditions and choice. People have urges, but they never become the urges. Sin is about urges. If a person has an urge to murder, are they a murderer? No. Yes, God says that they have sinned in their heart and can only be cleansed and redeemed by Christ.
You are right, but for the gays sake, fornication is also a sin like homosexuality. God gives on answer, marriage to an opposite sex person.
God also says, that he wishes that all men were single, it is a higher calling, for this man puts God first. He then says, it is better to marry than to burn, but this man is torn with putting his wife above God. This is what Adam did.
If all humans mastered the verses in Genesis 1 to 3, up until man sinned, not the fall, but before the fall. Now, if they are honest and answer these questions. Was homosexuality, fornication, murder, stealing, lusting after others, putting another god before God, etc, even possible. If man had procreated and lived as he did prior to sin, none of these things, including poverty would be a condition of man. Man's fallen condition is a state of his sin nature and absence of his God-father condition.
I don't see gayness the same way I view drug addicts. After all, one can be lustful for their drugs but never take them. Is an ex drug addict still a sinner to you?

I think that gays are free to be gay, but not engage in gay sex. That's where the sinning comes into play.
