    They are not when it comes down to some understanding about God. The problem starts when females dress like whores, it is not just the wearing of pierced items or tattoos. It was about keeping his chosen people separate (at the time) from the gentiles.

    Some Christians do not get it and go OT for the wrong reasons, like the Phelps family. God does not hate fags, nor does he want us to treat them in any other way then we want to be treated ourselves. This does not however mean we should except the sin and condone it.

    Because they don't know any better. It also makes no real difference as Paul said it is wrong in the NT as well.

    Not by me. I am merely pointing out the ambiguities. I haven't told anyone they don't know their own bible.



    It should never have been used to deny anyone anything. But the NT also condemns homosexuality. Leviticus law also gives us a look into what is acceptable to God.
    Only by St. Paul. As far as I know, Jesus never said anything about it. Unless you, with your superior bible knowledge can prove otherwise.

    Neither mention homosexuality at all. The word isn't in the bible. And, what it does mention is quite specific to MEN. So what of women?

    Regardless, it really doesn't matter what's in someone's mythical book of rules. What the rest of us can't figure out is why it matters to someone who follows some mythical book of rules whether or not I enter into a legal contract with a woman? I'll just never get why people feel the need to stick their nose in my business.

    Jesus is God. What did he have to say of homosexuality? Did his New Covenant condemn it?

    Not pointing the finger at you. It is allot of others. You have read the thread so i am certain you know.

    No. Only by Paul. Since he spoke directly to Jesus, I will give him the benefit of the doubt. Paul is also backed up by the fact it is condemned in the OT as well.

    The new or old Covent has nothing at all to do with it.

    Blackdog already admitted he doesn't care one bit about the Constitution. He wants to impose his moral and religious standards on others. Nothing new.

    But that's what you're not answering. Th fact is you still see homosexuality as a sin. You don't see eating lobster as a sin. Nor do you see tattoos or piercings as a sin. Why is one still a sin and not the others?
