    off topic, what about female prostitutes?

    Actually it does, and I have posted the verse in this thread already.

    It has nothing to do with sticking anything anyplace. We as Christians are not allowed to support sin. I have posted what Jesus said about it.

    What you call "someone's mythical book" as if to degrade it somehow, is scared text to us who believe.

    Are you allowed to impose your beliefs on non-believers?

    The KJV as much as I love it, is the absolute worse translation. For example it says "Thou shall not kill" when in it's actual Hebrew is says "Thou shall not murder."

    The new translations taken directly from the source in it's original Hebrew, Greek and some Aramaic like the NIV are much better.

    Yes. In fact we are told to go out and talk to people in his name. This has nothing to do with forcing though. In this case we are not forcing anyone to do anything. We are exercising our right to vote and be active in OUR government.

    well, it specificly mentions male prostitutes, so is female prostitution a sin under NT law?

    Paul also said women should remain silent in church and condemned those who wore gold or pearls; both also backed up by the OT. So my point about the double standards of interpretation when it comes to homosexuality still stands.

    Re: Should Same Sex People be allowed to Marry

    OK I am done people. At this point this is becoming nothing but a personal attack on Christianity, the Bible and it's laws, and my understanding of the law.

    It has nothing to do with the topic and I am pretty sick of answering the same questions over and over again.

    Is it fornication or adultery? That should pretty much fill you in.

    I didn't say talk, I said impose your will. Different things. Are believers allowed, or required, to impose Christianity or christian values on non-believers by force?

    This has nothing to do with forcing though. In this case we are not forcing anyone to do anything. We are exercising our right to vote and be active in OUR government.
    Sure, I'm not necessarily claiming you're imposing your will. You might be, you might not be.
