    Wrong. It's homosexuals mainstreaming their lifestyle while trying to guilt society into acceptance. This is their agenda, and it's working.
    The bible was ok with slavery therefore according to you god was ok with it. if the god thought it was bad he would have said so in the bible.
    Sorry your immutable book of morality is subject to changes in morality in society. It did so with slavery and is doing so today with homosexuality.
    No one is being quilted into anything. You are obviously against homosexuality fine do not engage in homosexual activities but do not let your personal interpretation of the bible be a guide to tell others how to live. In that you will be severely judged by God when the time comes. Make no mistake about that.

    Gay marriage has been found in multiple cultures and religions . in history. Why is it a problem just now?

    No, but then again, he isn't ordering heterosexuals to be heterosexuals.

    Now, above and beyond all tribal and confessional taboos, there is something bigger, something universal, some basic rules of morality - wouldn't you agree? "Do not onto others that you wish not to be done onto yourself". Sounds vaguely familiar?





    Nobody wishes to be coerced, by definition. See where I am going with this?



    Sounds a little bit like what Robert Green Ingersoll said a while back, "Tolerance is giving to every other human being every right that you claim for yourself."

    It is not changing in scripture, and I'm FULLY aware of the changes homosexuals are making in our society. It's called the Gay Agenda.
    No, the "Gay Agenda" was made up by Conservatives to strike fear into Americans and make them think homosexuals are something to fear.

    Slavery was never necessary, but the Bible approves of it.

    Don't you think it's interesting though that people study scripture to arrive at the opinions they already held? For example, you find passages you interpret to mean that homosexuality is a sin, while somebody who has no problem with homosexuality find the passages that focus on tolerance and non judgement. See my point?

    It's sad to see the religious so delusional. Not unexpected, but sad nonetheless.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Wrong.

    There are lots of homosexuals in lots of Christian Churches.

    You can deny their existence all that you want, but they are there.
