I'm not a Mormon. I took the liberty to use that term to define people who have never heard of the gospel or anything about God in their entire lifetime due to circumstances beyond their control.

REV 20:11: And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12: And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God;and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13: And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14: And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15: And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

You are basing your gospel on an unknown in the hardest book to interpret?

Being an athiest has nothing to do with me being gay. I imagine I'd still be very anti religion even if I wasn't gay so **** off.

Well I must really be worse then a gay person because I'm not gay, was once a Christian (despite what others might rationalize away with fancy theology) and I too will NEVER want to have anything to do with being a part of the Christian faith again.

DTO my friend. Just take a deep breath. No need getting worked up to the point where you lose it. To quote a bible verse to apply to City Data's rules, "be ye angry and sin not."

I realize it can be frustrating but the topic is decent but don't lose it in the side details. Cool? I'm sure Betsy wants to see her thread go on forever. Somebody might be interested in her plea.
