Have you spoken to God personally? And I know that you wil say it's in the Bible, but doesn't the Bible also say that you shouldn't hate?

Then what would you call it? You mildly dislike them? Why not just let them be?

Being Christian means being "Christ like". Christ did not judge or condem others. How is being homosexual judging or condeming others? No where in the bible does it state that being a homosexual is a sin. I know you will probably give the old standard verses that people think prove homosexuality is a sin, but have you read and studied the entire context of those verses? My son in gay and he is very much a Christian! He follows all of God's commandments and he is in a committed relationship. Who are you to judge?

I did not judge anyone, if my son was gay I would probably feel the same way you do. However my son is not gay. I simply gave my opinion on the subject at hand. But, just because you agree doesn't mean everyone else has to agree with you. I gues in the end we will all see who was right. Being your talking about the bible, seems like you already know the scriptures. If you choose to genetically alter the scriptures, that is your choice.

Have a blessed day!!

Funny you say you don't judge, but you accuse me of altering scripture.

Just thought I would share my "genetically altered" view of the scriptures.

The Bible is the story of God's love for the world and the people of the world. It tells the history of God's love at work rescuing, renewing, and empowering humankind. It was never intended to be a book about human sexuality.

In fact, the Bible accepts sexual practices that we condemn and condemns sexual practices that we accept. Lots of them! Here are a few examples.

DEUTERONOMY 22:13-21
If it is discovered that a bride is not a virgin, the Bible demands that she be executed by stoning immediately.
DEUTERONOMY 22:22
If a married person has sex with someone else's husband or wife, the Bible commands that both adulterers be stoned to death.
MARK 10:1-12
Divorce is strictly forbidden in both Testaments, as is remarriage of anyone who has been divorced.
LEVITICUS 18:19
The Bible forbids a married couple from having sexual intercourse during a woman's period. If they disobey, both shall be executed.
MARK 12:18-27
If a man dies childless, his widow is ordered by biblical law to have intercourse with each of his brothers in turn until she bears her deceased husband a male heir.
DEUTERONOMY 25:11-12
If a man gets into a fight with another man and his wife seeks to rescue her husband by grabbing the enemy's genitals, her hand shall be cut off and no pity shall be shown her.

Have a blessed day also!

This is not about Gods love for us, that is unconditional. It's about whether or not homosexuality is a sin.

If it was as simple as saying homosexual people should not get married because it is a sin, then we shouldn't allow people who have been divorced before remarry. There should always be a division from religion and state, and using the arguement against same sex marriages as being sinful should not matter in the eyes of the state.

That would be "loves", not "love's."

a division from religion and state is why we are in the state we are in.

God should have nothing to do with this. We have a separation of church and state in this country.
