I am a CHRISTian, so for me personally I've always believed the teachings of Christ were more important then the Bible, especially the Old Testament of the Bible. Jesus never spoke out against homosexuality, so if it didn't bother him it doesn't both me.
Besides since the beginning of man 5% or so of the population has been homosexual. Always has been, and always will be. Wishing it away or trying to legislate it away is a waste of time.
Raj Koothrappali"Big or small, I don't like rabbits. They always look like they're about to say something, but they never do."
Go forth...and sin no more.
What of the apostles? Did they teach on about sin? Was there mention of the sin of homosexuality?
Again...non religious people like to trot out religion...when it suits them.
Neighboring Illinois has a RFRA law. But it also has a statewide law that prohibits discrimination based on gender-identity and sexual-orientation.
Texas and Missouri have RFRA laws. But they have sections in their RFRA laws that prohibit discrimination based on gender-identity and sexual-orientation.
Indiana has no such statewide/RFRA protections. Indiana legislators rejected such protections when deliberating the Indiana RFRA law.
One has to ask ... why?
Yeah Rahm Emanuel tried to get some face time. He said once he heard, he was trying to let businesses in Indiana know how beneficial it would be for them to move to Chicago and Illinois. He sent a letter to like 12-15 of them.
I am sure they will want to pay all the high taxes we have over here and see how that would be so much more beneficial for them. Including their cost of living.
The Bible is a sausage-fest. That's kinda geigh.
