    You could at least give me credit for my words before you attempt to change them. I agree hate and fear go hand in hand, however, hate is every bit as natural to humans as fear. And it is human nature to hate.

    I believe that's called changing the goalposts...?

    All I'm saying is that it was mentioned in the NT.

    I honestly don't understand why fellow Christians are against same sex marriage and other gay rights. The point of scripture is to change hearts, be good people and bring others to Christ. How is screaming about gay marriage going to change any hearts? How is being hateful towards other sinners going to bring people to Christ? Making same sex marriages illegal isn't going to save anyone. They're still committing the sin. You've changed nothing. There is no victory. The victory is in changing hearts. Why can't some Christians get that?

    I'd encourage you to read the link I posted before you speak again.

    Twisting a direct quote?

    Or perhaps it's religion that's twisted scripture.

    Ever consider that? 'Course not.

    It's a good way to make you say what they want you to say, don't you think? I've had my posts rewritten also.

    Perhaps you do, since it appears you might have been misinformed? Or is a new view point not okay?

    It does come to some rather absurd conclusions....like "homosexuality" being a foreign concept to the writers of the New Testament....when it is clearly addressed in the Old Testament. The logic is just plain faulty.
