    I like you outlook. Sane, kind and compassionate.

    Here's a snippet from tessa's article:

    None of the four gospels mentions the subject. This means that, so far as we know, Jesus never spoke about homosexuality, and we simply have no way of determining what his attitude toward it might have been.
    Well, gosh. Jesus never mentioned child molestation either. I guess there's no way to know if He would be okay with that or not.

    I suppose so, though if you believe in the demoralization of a country regarding Christianity, gay marriage imo is an example. The only reason I don't oppose gay marriage is because America is no theocracy.

    I wish there were better ways for people to understand that it is sin.

    The country is no more or less demoralized with it being legal or illegal. The legality of it isn't what makes it sinful.

    Oh, I don't think it makes anyone a bad person. I think some people believe the country will suddenly become less sinful if it's made illegal across the board. That's just stupid.
