    I just pointed out that even the king of the bigots isn't bigoted enough to hold WCH's view anymore. (Probably yours too, but I'm not going to make assumptions)

    The view that homosexuals are sinners like everyone else and need to repent? Yes I believe that. To believe that homosexuality is a sin? Absolutely.
    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.

    Then why are you disagreeing with the pope? All he said is that yes, homosexuals are sinners, but it isn't our job to harass them. If you oppose that statement, you either don't believe they're sinners or think we should harass them.

    Seeing as how you've clearly stated homosexuals are sinners, I have to assume you oppose his latter statement.

    Key words right there. Like everyone else. No better, and certainly no worse.

    What "word"?

    What "truth"?

    What "evil"?

    What a bunch of horse feces.

    The younger generation simply sees other people as people.
    They don't separate and segregate them into gay and straight.

    There is no "homo indoctrination" - it's simply acceptance, open-mindedness, and compassion for their fellow human beings.

    No but that doesn't mean we should advance and promote their sin either.

    Why don't you define what you want to do to them that the pope doesn't. I want all people to be treated equally and to have equal rights. How about you?

    I don't think ANYBODY, even the pope, has claimed that christians should advance or promote sin.

    Allowing people to have equal rights is not promoting sin.

    Which also doesn't mean they should be shunned, segregated, separated, or condemned.

    They are, and should be treated as equal.
