    And what kind of behavior do you define as militant?
    What do they do when they "trash" the fam unit etc?

    i am not BSing you. I am curious about what individuals think not what groups say to promote agendas. People count more. You aren't an idiot and neither am I. It is my assumption that you have thought this through and can clearly and intelligently represent yourself. Take it or leave it.

    Wrong, you've already flipped from NT beliefs to what makes people militant and have agendas. Smells like a fishing expedition and I don't have the time or patience to walk you through it.

    No, I did not flip. You may not have followed, but I did not flip. I am trying to understand your position by asking you questions. If that makes you nervous, you have no obligation to respond.

    It's one thing to say you don't like it, it's another if you support government force against it.

    He has not said anything much different than Benedict. The only difference is the MSM hated Benedict and seem to (for now)like Francis.

    Not one of your sources say homosexuality is genetic. That there is a gay gene. A well known researcher in the field recently admitted in an interview homosexuality is not genetic. The scientists who did the identical twin studies were also pro gay and had to admit their studies showed beyond refute that there is no gay gene.

    Now the part you have ignored-

    'HISTORY' is more than a very garbled oral tradition passed down for thousands of years. You claimed the earliest accounts of the Bible are history and somehow predate the other myths about how the heavens and earth were formed. it isn't history, it is legend and myth, like every other religion.

    Forgot- some say GAWD isn't a fella...
    Who has actually banned gays from their property? Other than that crazy westboro church or whatever their name is.
    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.
