    BTW, speaking of sodomites, is it O.K. for a man and woman to have oral and anal sex with each other?

    Not in the State of Virginia.

    Judgement and condemnation is between the sodomite and God. A lot of people here seem to think that the Pope is condoning homosexual sex. He's not.



    The Bible is a work of fiction written by very fallible men.

    A little girl, who was being abused by her father, was taken from the home and placed with a gay couple. The gay couple spent laborious hours teaching the little girl that what had happened was not her fault, and that she was a precious gift. Their love and devotion enabled the little girl to learn to love herself and others while thriving.
    Now, if homosexuality is a sin and an abomination, do you think God is displeased with the gay couple?

    Displeased with their handling of the girl? No, but that is irrelevant.

    A murderer who was released on parole helps an old lady cross the street and shows her love in the process. Is God displeased that he murdered someone?

    Doesn't work that way.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Sure, but that wasn't what we were talking about.

    Francis continues to distance himself from Benedict. Thoughts?
    This could split the church in two. Sometimes this kind of thing happens when the Lord is separating the chaff from the wheat.

    Now, if homosexuality is a sin and an abomination, do you think God is displeased with the gay couple?
    If your boy gets all A's on his report card and is suspended from school for fighting, are you displeased with him?
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.
