    No you don't, but giving homosexuality a place of honor is also not required to fulfill the commandments of Jesus. If all sins are equal, then we shouldn't jail anyone. Nevertheless should homosexuals receive the death penalty? Of course not.

    Jesus hung out with lepers and all manner of sinners. Has nothing to do with a place of honor. Man's criminal law is not Gods law for our spiritual salvation. In the end God will judge them and if they are righteous, he will not turn away from them, and neither should we as we are sinners as well.

    Matthew 9:10-13 10 While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and sinners came and ate with him and his disciples. 11 When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”

    12 On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. 13 But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

    Re: homosexuality potentially punishable by death

    Homosexuality is a perverse sin that must be preached against. Just because no one is harmed... does not make it not a sin. Punishable by death? No, NO, NO!!! There is no debate as to whether they should or should not be killed; Imo this thread should be locked since trolls keep screwing up the poll. The government in whatever that country is is misinformed; death shouldn't be an option.

    All sin is perverse and should be preached against. The problem is people have taken homosexuality and makes it seem like the deadly sin around, it's not and we all sin.

    The poll being screwed up has nothing really to do with he debates. It remains on topic and civil.

    Homosexuality is neither one of the lesser or greater sins. I rank homosexuality below abortion and above stem cell research. To say we all sin (which we do), and make it seem as though all are equal, then one must think they all should have the same punishment.

    No. Gods law if for our spiritual salvation, not a system of government. Has to do with the whole "render unto Cesar" thing. Far to many Christians don't seem to be able to separate the two.

    It is this thought process which leads to violence against Gays in Africa. Rejection of Gays leads to demonization of them and ends up in violence.

    Re: homosexuality potentially punishable by death

    @ Blackdog: So we should conform to the government's rules and not fight for God's rules in a civil, passive, and legal way? What if the government were to penalize Christianity? Would you still hold to your "render unto Cesar" thing?

    Your thinking is perverse, unfounded, and just plain wrong. Read my post history and gain understanding, lest I consider you an ignorant fool.

    Oh no I understood it.

    But it is that first thought process (which I helpfully highlighted, guess you didn't notice) that homosexuality is a sin and being gay is perverse which leads to demonization of gays because holy text rejects them. Have you understood what I have said?
    Both Christianity and Islam are responsible for this hatred of Gays in Africa and both religions play a part as to why Uganda has passed this bill. Well, more Christianity in Uganda because the country is majority Christian
