    Except God said it. That is the proof. Eyewitness testimony as well by Paul.

    There has been some thought provoking studies made of the brains of heteros vs homos. Here's one:

    "This research is pointing to basic differences in the brain between homosexual and heterosexual people that are likely there right from the beginning," said Sandra F. Witelson, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral neurosciences at McMaster University in Ontario. "These could be reflecting some genetic or hormonal factors that predetermine your sexual orientation."

    It is discussed in those books, and condemned as abominations, or is it brought up and open to interpretation?

    Much of what has been interpreted as homosexuality are really about idolatry.

    It directly speaks to it as sin and even says homosexuals will not enter into heaven.

    Then why did you use Leviticus if you argue it is irrelevant when I bring the rest of it up? You should have never used it in the first place.

    Right, he'd try to heal all the bigots preaching hate against homosexuals in God's name of their blasphemous affliction.

    If there were bigots in a gay pride parade, they would be homosexuals, wouldn't they. Funny thing about homosexuals. They tell you they can't help it. They tell you it's this curse that they have no control over. That no one would choose to be gay. But talk about curing the condition of homosexuality and they want to scratch your eyes out. Now go figure, huh!?
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    O.K. ... the GOP has pretty much written off the black vote ... they're blocking immigration reform that Latinos are likely to embrace (so let's forget them as well), they're trying to punch big holes in the safety net for the poor (so let's forget them, and since Latinos and blacks are disproportionately poorer write them off even more), they want women to vote for them but are trying to take their right to choose away and forming vaggie patrols (and these are younger women we're mainly talking about that they are alienating - women who will be around much longer than the old women who do vote for them), and they've targeted and continue to target gays ... forgive me, but this doesn't look like a winning strategy in the long run ... yet, I'm kinda happy about all this ... go figure ... PAUL AND CRUZ IN 2016! (With Palin as Secy of Education).

    You actually brought up Leviticus, I just said the Bible calls homosexuality an abomination.

    who gives a #$%& what the Bible has to say about public policy ... practice your religion folks, but leave it out of the public arena and don't knock on my door telling me how much Jesus loves me ...
