    Nothing I can do about you willfully choosing to be wrong, and since you -choose- to be wrong, there's no reason for me to continue to illustrate this to you.

    Do you agree that it is an abomination?

    Don't presume to know my religious convictions just because you've read a few posts by me. I'm a long way from being as you say...a religious "fundamentalist". People who start religious cults are religious fundamentalist (not to mention nuts cases). I'm a long way from being cultish.
    I totally believe you. Maybe if you protest some more, I'll believe you even more.

    Do you hear that, Jall? There is nothing more that Goobie can do for you.

    I admitted that you were wrong, I demonstrated that you were wrong, and offered to help alleviate your affliction. But you must help yourself first.

    There's nothing else I can do for you until you want to be right. You have to want it. Right now, you seem content with being wrong. That's your choice.

    Do you think there is a dictionary 12 step program somewhere out there? If so, I can think of at least 2 posters who need it.

    Re: Christian preacher arrested for saying homosexuality is a sin

    I was curios, so I decided to see what Wiki said about [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homophobia]Homophobia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame].

    Homophobia is a range of negative attitudes and feelings towards homosexuality and people identified or perceived as being homosexual. Definitions[1][2][3] refer variably to antipathy, contempt, prejudice, aversion, and irrational fear.

    In the eyes of God...yes. He has an extreme dislike for those who have sexual relations with members of the same sex.

    Do I believe there are people out there who truly have an extreme dislike for homosexuals? Yes.

    Do I? No.

    Do I agree with the lifestyle? No.

    Do I condemn homosexuals for the lifestyle they lead? No.

    It's their choice to live how they want to live. I choose not to condone the lifestyle nor participate in it. But I certainly don't go around telling people who live that lifestyle they're an abomination to God or anyone else. Now, if someone who is a homosexual should ask my opinion, I'd say to them exactly what I've said herein, but I would leave them to lead their life as they see fit. Maybe I would encourage them to change their behavior, but I wouldn't force my opinon upon them nor would I look down at them for it.

    Hate the sin, not the sinner.

    Yes, it's a designer definition. A definition designed for the word it's defining.

    We should just make a 'battle of the dictionaries' forum for a couple of the members here.

    But wait - here's more:
    -combining form extreme or irrational fear or dislike of a specified thing:
    AskOxford: -phobia


    -an exaggerated usually inexplicable and illogical fear of a particular object, class of objects, or situation
    Phobia - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

    -An unreasonable sort of fear that can cause avoidance and panic. Phobias are a relatively common type of anxiety disorder.
    Phobia definition - Medical Dictionary definitions of popular medical terms easily defined on MedTerms

    -A phobia is an intense but unrealistic fear that can interfere with the ability to socialize, work, or go about everyday life, brought on by an object, event or situation.
    Phobias - definition of Phobias in the Medical dictionary - by the Free Online Medical Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.
    Interesting how none of these defintions include in any way the terms 'dislike' or 'contempt'.
    Well except for one that ... does.
