Okay I believe that I spoke on heterosexual sins. If not in this thread it was in another. All sin is condemned by God. Do I need to say it again? Not really sure what you aren't understanding here.
Let me explain the simple matter to you another time, Cletus: If you "religious" freeeks were concerned about "sin" then you'd have been braying that adulterers and liars and the gluttonous could not serve openly in the military, marry, adopt, be protected from arbitrary firing for all these decades.

You bigoted filth have not been so doing.

So it's not about "sin," it's about your personal, psychological problem of homophobia, which you wrap up in buybull babble so you feel your sht doesn't stink.

Why do you force people onto the defensive like that? It's not often people wander onto this board seeking free inquiry and debate. It behooves us, nonetheless, to treat them as if they do want an honest discussion, until proved otherwise.
I don't wish to treat the disingenuous, passive aggressive, pogrom seeking scum any better than you would treat a KKK member.

The moron in question's post long ago showed the freeek is not interested in honest discussion. The thing is arguing that xstains deserve more, and select, adoption rights compared to everyone else, us "demon possessed" glbt people most especially.

I in turn will ask you why you are so naive? "Honest discussion" with these fundie brownshirts? Really, raise your standards.

Their beliefs have never been challenged. They venture forth to share them with those they consider unwashed. Most of the time, they retreat after finding that they have nothing new to offer us. Occasionally, one accepts the challenge and learns. And that is how we win: One better-informed heart at a time.

I have mentioned before that I think your insight would be far more effective with less invective.

And I think they're responsible for their actions. They deserve to be treated "as they have treated others." Furthermore, they're not persuadable.

Forget the fundie filth. Perhaps some glbt person or teen comes into one of these talibangelical diatribes, sees an angry, righteous response to the bigotry, and gets a little boost knowing all the buybull babble is sht.

Plus, I enjoy calling the gap toothed, mouth breathing morons names. It's not just glbt right they're fcked up on. They don't even know how the old earth is, or what a "theory" is, or what "testable" means. They're anti rational theocrats who mean to silence, disfranchsie, defame and kill you. Wise up.

I have no reason to believe all these posters are fundamentalist thumpers. There are plenty of good-hearted Americans who were raised in mainstream churches that held the same beliefs about homosexuality--including the one I grew up in. BTW, my childhood church has become a welcoming ministry, although not before my family--and I suppose many others--left it.

But pity the poor fundamentalists. They have never learned any better. My own niece was dragged to a fundamentalist church by her other grandparents as she grew up. Somewhere along the line, she learned better because someone explained the real world to her.

I'm sure your local library has adult literacy courses to help hone your reading skills. Because all you have to do is read their completely anti rational posts.

Another example of bias and forcing a religious belief down our throats.
God's children are God's children....period! A true Christian knows this.
McDonnell needs to go and NOT to Washington either..he just plain needs to go. He is NOT God and he needs to stop acting like he thinks he is!
