    Must you lie so often?

    The preacher never once said abomination.

    Do you have a quote of what the preacher said? And the volume at which it was said? Please share. I can't help but feel you are witholding information.

    I was referring to the verses provided by Objective Voice which did in fact use the term as justification for why homosexuality is a sin.

    Whether or not he believes it is irrelevant. It's the speaking that matters here.

    But thanks for finally acknowledging that he wasn't arrested for "his beliefs" as you so mistakenly stated previously.

    Catz wants to burn the preacher, tongue in cheek, I think the younglings today literally want to burn the preacher.
    Being personally intolerant and emboldening the government to criminalize are two different things.

    What makes you think the preacher was afraid of homosexuals?

    The preacher should have said love the homsexual but hate the sin he commits........

    The dictionary says it's "a fear or contempt for". He could have had contempt. No one said fear was necessary for the term to apply.

    I'm not you. I read your post. I just didn't find it all that interesting.
    Then you're a religious bigot. For as I've stated time and time again, my point was akin to yours only you stopped at the religious point without giving the legality or merit of the preacher's arrest its due consideration.

    You belittle yourself.
    Now, how did I do that? By backing up the preacher's words in pointing out Scripture? In debates, it's called "quoting the source". You're just tic'd off because someone was able to show in the Bible where what the preacher said was true. No one has made any assertions that gays and lesbians are going to Hell for being who they are. I and the preacher merely pointed to versus of scripture in the Bible where it clearly states that such act - homosexuality - is a sin against God. Nothing more.

    I remain unconvinced by you.
    Wasn't trying to convince you of anything except that your religious biasness has blinded you to the truth behind why this man was arrested. Had nothing to do with how he spoke, but rather what he said. Someone heard his commentary concerning homosexuals, didn't like what he heard, took offense to it, and arrested him using a law that really doesn't fit the situation at hand.

    Feeling persecuted again?
    Nope, but I'm sure the preacher does.

    He probably did say that - we don't know. All the article states is that the preacher was having a side conversation with a shopper who perhaps happened to hear his sermon and asked questions concerning (I assume) what constitutes sin per the Bible. He laid it out for her, a gay cop overheard him and arrested him for it under the guiese of a hate speech law. IMO, the cop was wrong, but to some that doesn't seem to matter.

    B.s. You stated that you agree with it.

    Then you're a religious bigot. For as I've stated time and time again, my point was akin to yours only you stopped at the religious point without giving the legality or merit of the preacher's arrest its due consideration.
    I think you should invest in a good dictionary. I believe many Christian beliefs are stupid, and in particular, I think that living your book according to the precepts of a rather barbaric book is stupid. However, I have no problems with you choosing that for yourself as long as your views don't impact my life.

    You're just tic'd off because someone was able to show in the Bible where what the preacher said was true.
    I already knew that. For the second time, I taught Sunday School in the Southern Baptist Church for close to 15 years. The fact that homosexuality is considered a sin in the bible isn't new to me.

    No one has made any assertions that gays and lesbians are going to Hell for being who they are. I and the preacher merely pointed to versus of scripture in the Bible where it clearly states that such act - homosexuality - is a sin against God. Nothing more.
    And an abomination. It's the way you treated the word abomination that was incredibly revealing to me.

    I know how fundamentalists think and spin.

    Wasn't trying to convince you of anything except that your religious biasness has blinded you to the truth behind why this man was arrested. Had nothing to do with how he spoke, but rather what he said.
    So? His views are still retarded. I don't care that it says so in the Bible, so using that as "evidence" of anything is simply ridiculous.

    I don't care what your invisible friend thinks. Got it?
