The Church claims to be sympathetic to gays- at least until they want to marry or adopt kids.

Jesus Christ was anti-gay. He would have kicked their sorry diseased asses out of places of worship, while beating them with a whip. He may have caste their demons into pigs, but that would have left them empty and open to more evil demons than the ones responsible for killing tens of thousands of Americans with HIV.

My, what vivid fantasies you have. What Bible did you read? The Marquis de Sade's? Scary, scary beliefs you've chosen, I hope God has a sense of humor.

Of course God has a sense of humor; you're wearing adult diapers because of gay bowel syndrome, aren't you?

Jesus Christ was not anti gay, you uneducated redneck. What He doesn't like is when a dummy like YOU uses Him to justify bigotry. And HIV originated in Africa with STRAIGHT people....trying to scapegoat gays for the AIDS epidemic is totally absurd. You're a complete moron who doesn't have the slightest clue what you're talking about....all you accomplish by your posts is embarrassing yourself.

God loves all His creatures, straight and gay. It's the blemish thingy on the soul that would worry me. If I was gay and found Jesus, I'd switch back or go celibate.
Only my opinion, not worth a dare thing.

Natural God-given and harmless traits are not "soul blemishes".

Well, since no one chooses to be gay, it's not possible to "switch back". As for being celibate, that makes about as much sense for gay folks as it does for straight folks. Very few people are called to it, and the idea that it's the ONLY solution if you are only attracted to the same gender is absurd.

If that were the case, God wouldn't send so many of us life-mates, and bless our families in so many ways.

No one is born gay. Its a choice in life just like everything else. Its stupid the way the politically correct try to brainwash people to think the way they do. Lifes is about choosing the way you live. No ones born a christian and no ones born gay. Its all a choice

Everyone is born ignorant, most choose to overcome it. The silly notion that people somehow choose to be gay was rejected by science decades ago and by reality long before that. We have the same choice you did in regards to your sexual orientation, how to live with the one we were given. Sexual orientation, be it strictly heterosexual, strictly homosexual or somewhere in between, is an innate and perfectly natural instinct, the groundwork for which is laid down by genetics and biology. Nature and evolution have their reasons, whether we fully understand them or not. Reality, as far as we know, there have always been same sex attracted members of the species, it's not the world's longest running fad.

PS, one's choices for sex partners and one's sexual orientation, not necessarily the same thing. The things we do with our sexual orientation are choices. Including acting in ways completely in-congruent with that orientation.
