I do ask however that people on this thread remember that not all Christians support the actions of Evangelicalism.
In fact there are churches who are welcome people who are of the LGBT.

I'm sure some christians actually practice what they preach too. Small churches like that are all well and good but the mega churches have an upper hand on indoctrinating hate. They continue to sponsor an international holocaust. Even the pope said we have to treat homosexuality as seriously as global warming. The persecution isn't easy to handle when it's dispensed so easily and chewed up by people eager to beat the crap out of people because the guy at the podium tells them God hates them. Yes Jesus was also persecuted and that's what makes it so difficult because it's not only dealing with hate, it's bigotry wrapped in hypocrisy spouted out in OT Bible verses. Something more needs to be done.

The Bible is the oldest book on this planet! Many have tried to destroy it and discredit it...kings and emperors, false prophets and little people like you. "For the Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword piercing even to the division of soul and spirit and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12). And the Lord Jesus Christ said, "Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away" (Matthew 24:35). You see my foolish friend the Bible, Gods Word and Christianity will be here long after your miserable life is over!
1. The Bible is God's Word.

False. Men wrote the Bible. Since no one can prove the existence of God, it follows that no once can prove the Bible to be God's word. We do know, however, that it is written by men who claim it to be inspired by God and therefore only the inspired word of God, meaning "about God."

2. The Bible is the oldest Book on the Planet.

False. The Bible is a collection of writings translated from earlier texts and manuscripts. The Septuagint is older than any Bible. http://www.septuagint.net/

BTW, The Septuagint is not part of the Bible. It is a Greek translation of Hebrew Scripture which was helpful to the first Bible writers. It pre-dates the Bible. David is an idiot. There is no Bible containing the Septuagint.

<quoted text>There is no rational connection between the fact of being unspeakable in marriage. To claim otherwise is overwhelmingly rejected by me. There is also no logical connection between any of my thoughts, marriage and any sort of homosexual relationship. Nothing homosexual shares the reasons for government involvement in my incarceration and inabilty to pleas my wife. I has been overwhelmingly rejected by homosexuals in every country that allows it.
WTF?

Does this make any sense?

All of a sudden in 1973, all homosexuals were magically healed of their mental illness. Or the more likely explanation would be that political maneuvering played the key roll in getting it delisted.

The Bible also says that God hates those who judge others.
What Bible are you quoting and where is statement of hate located? We are called as children of God to call a lie a lie and the truth the truth. However, this society does the opposite. You call the truth a lie and a lie the truth. You embrace all that is evil and hate that which is good.

So christian homosexuals are ok by you then?
No...A homosexual who claims to be a Christian can not be both! He is either saved and no longer in bondage to the deviant behavior. Or he is not saved and continues to practice the wicked rebellious behavior.

For someone professing to be Christian as you do, you should spend less time listening to the sound of your own choices and more time listening to HIM. I'm done with you, you've got a lot more to worry about than what I think...

Matthew 7:1, "Judge not that ye be not judged."
Mark 12:31 31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
I'm sorry you where saying?
Do you feel judged? The Word of God is given by God for correction and reproof. If the Word of God makes you feel judged you should take that up with God. Wouldn't that be the logical thing for you to do?
