    No, but it isn't sin that makes them wrong, it's the laws of the nation in which I live. Sin is irrelevant.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    They were sins, long before they were laws in The United States of America.

    The sun and moon were gods long before we recognized them for what they are. You had a point?

    That sounds good on the face of it, but you're deluding yourself. According to my LDS friends yours is precisely the place they want to revisit - daily. Those who are full of themselves with religious knowledge are the most vocal converts and generally not all that hard to get. Just takes persistence. A simple sign however will be honored.

    Liberals are in a position to urge Christains to be loving and tolerant towards Gays, as it is Christian doctrine to love the sinner but hate the sin.

    Fascinating that we have to educate them on how to be a proper Christian.

    They don't have to love sin, like sin, or tolerate sin. But the Christian thing to do is to embrace all sinners and help them to change their sinful ways, whether it be anal sex, oral sex, greed, lust, jealousy, hate, slander, dishonesty, sex out of weadlock, or violence.

    The point is, that you view sin however you choose and everyone else can do the same. It's called, "religious freedom", and is one of the things that makes this the greatest nation in the history of mankind.

    Churches have every right to discriminate against Gays and urge their members to do so.

    But they are hateful for doing so and unChristian. They will be judged for it.

    Libbos aren't in a position to, "urge", anyone to do anything. Ever hear of The United States Constitution? Read the 1st Amendment, where it guarantees religious freedom. It's one of our civil rights.

    Yes, you have the right to be a hateful bigot and claim that such attitudes are Christian. Its very legal.

    But a higher power will have final judgement and it won't be a good one.
