    You don't get exclusive belief in Jesus as the son of God just because you are straight. You don't get exclusive belief in the Bible just because you are straight. There are plenty of things that plenty of denominations of Christianity do not believe in the Bible. Many beliefs about the Bible have changed. Your beliefs on what the proper translation of the Bible is no more deserving of the moniker "Christianity" than any other group's.

    My point was that, right now, from the way it seems, sexuality considerations in regards to hiring, firing, and promotions tends to favor heterosexuality, not homosexuality, if it favors any sexuality. This may not be the case in certain companies, but in general, it is true.
    You are too reasonable Rogue. You are probably quite right actually on this point. And fair to boot.

    The one thing I would call out is that many liberals seem to tend not to worry about the wrongs done by the gays in the above scenario. They see it as evil balancing evil, at least the few I have discussed this with. I've seen it across various topics. The means seems to justify the end in their eyes.
    You can see it in the way we deal with racial equality in our society. "You did it to us, now it's our turn" isn't a real progression.

    Again, I respect your rationality.

    At the risk of stating the obvious, this is a relative statement. The fact remains that the Truth may more may not lie within your conventions.

    There are absolutely some who do, and that is wrong. It should be fair and laws should apply equally to everyone, not just groups who have been oppressed or done wrong too.

    I do not believe there is such a thing as secular rights. It implies the ability to divorce our understanding of good from God, the source.

    There is a Bible that is interpreted many different ways, by many different denominations of Christianity, about 41000 in fact, and in fact many different Christians within those denominations have different interpretations of the Bible.
