If you said the the "unnatural" claims were ridiculous, I missed it. Point me to that post and I'll apologise.
    No need to apologies.

    My ex-husband and I hated each other for at least 8 of the 12 years of the marriage. Fully legal.

    He was questioning someone's intelligence and maturity, so I merely pointed out that he was in no position to.
    I'm all for everyone having intelligent conversation. But how can we do that if someone can't spell?
    I didn't mean to break the rules, though =\

    You should be completely against any homosexual behavior. Doesn't it say in that book something like, "A man should not lie with another man as he lies with a woman for that is detestable?"
    Read the whole thread to get a clue on what is going on. Stop making assumptions based on nothing.

    If you think that's okay, then why can't they just get married and call it that?
    Because it is not a marraige. If you do not agree, thats OK.

    The government does not recognize it. So I will not support it, and if I did it would reflect on me a Christian.

    If someone's religion causes them to hate or fear something, or to discriminate against someone, they don't get a moral pass from those who disagree because it's religion on which they base their prejudices.

    Religious people can use all kinds of language to describe those who disagree: heretic, idolater, blasphemer, apostate, whatever. They'll be technically correct to use these terms, because they have specific meanings.

    I don't know how someone who opposes equal protection for LBGT people can avoid being called a homophobe, whatever the reason. That's what we call people who don't think LGBT people deserve equal treatment--would you like to suggest another (I asked this before and you didn't respond)?

    Until I hear a single practical real-world argument against gay marriage (one based on the needs of society as it actually exists and not some religious belief or misconception about the nature of homosexuality), I have to assume that those opinions are based on prejudice. Perhaps you've given such a reason and I missed it.

    Thanks.

    It's pretty old. Are you sure it's an accurate translation?

    Yep. Read it in Hebrew and Greek. Well not personally, but the newer translations form the original text.

    How old is the oldest copy you've read? Have you read from the originals? Or just copies of copies of copies of copies?

    Not really, I was debating 4 people at one time and typing quickly and not paying attention.

    Because a typo just ruins the post.

    Pathetic.
