Slavery used to be illegal, women used to be unable to vote... Luckily we as a people keep pregressing away from oppression.

Is "BS" in the Bible? Is that what they teach you in your church?

That is rich!!! I bet white southern slave owners felt the same way!

"Ahh say Buford.. those abolitionists are intolerant of our slave owning ways! Tha' Nerve of them!"

Awesome + Infinity of an argument.

Well considering incest, rape, adultry (in some states), and fornication (depending on age) are ILLEGAL.. then the example is stupid.

why not put murder in there? why not say robbing banks using rubber chickens.

I, bigthirsty, an bigoted against robbing banks with rubber chickens.

You can call it what you want.. It isn't love.

jeez.. just own it.. You don't like it. Making excuses for it just sounds stupid.

In my book it comes down to this. There is unacceptance and then there is unacceptance that impedes the rights of citizens of this country.

If your view is the latter.. then yes I call it hate.. (hate with sprinkles on top cause you love em right!?)

Well if homosexuality causes men to become lovers of self then the prophecy has been fulfilling for a long long long long time... See.. homosexuality isn't new.

In certain states it was.. so was oral sex.. Oh by the way in the 1920's they outlawed alcohol.

What does prohibition have to do with this discussion? Nothing.. but neither does your statement about homosexuality once being against the law.

Other fun facts having nothing to do with the discussion:

The Jaguar is a compact well-muscled animal.

Ummmmm.....there are more slaves now then there has ever been.

Women are being abused in pretty much every country that doesn't have a strong Christian influence.

You are showing serious lack of discernment. I beg of you repent and trust in God's word. You can't sit and seriously tell me when you read the bible that God approves of the homosexual lifestyle and gay clergy?

You can honestly sit there and tell me, God has no problem with homosexuality regardless what you think or feel. Just from reading the bible

If we could only get timmy's rights to include a sexual relationship with Lassie, and Public sex on the streets to be acceptable, and Men w/ underage boys. All our perverse freedoms would be restored

Sex on demand for everybody! We have been so repressed. Just like slaves and women.....

Where is that throw up emoticon when you need it.....

godspeed,

freedom

Yup.. from what I've read.. which by the way is in the link I posted. Feel free to view or start a new thread on it.

Fundy.. any scripture you put out there with regards to homosexuality being a sin.. I can counter. Every.. single.. one...

So.. if you'd like.. start a new thread on the subject.. and I'll dig everything up again and counter everything you put out there.

You and I will argue back and forth about context and interpretation.. you'll say I'm twisting scripture since that is your thing to do..

then.. we'll just be back at the same point we were before.

But.. I do love to argue fundy.. I do love it. Love it love it love it.. and if thats a road you'd like to go down.. by all means start the thread. I do have company in town this weekend.. so if I won't be of much help right away but if its something you are honestly interested in I'm happy to oblige to a fun new homosexuality thread.. lord knows THAT has never been talked about here.

What astonishes me most is you think I'm just ignoring something. Like I'm that stupid. Like I wouldn't do my own independent research on the subject.. Like I would just take the word of some redneck baptist preacher who don't know nothing more than his daddy told him while growing up in bucksnort mississippi.. please. Don't assume I haven't gone out and done my own research on it...

because in the end.. and I say this as heartfelt as possible. If God created homosexuals and at the same time tells them "you can't be in love".. then I'd have to walk away from my faith. Its as simple as that..

When a fundie throws out the "if we let the gays marry, then we have to let men marry dogs and rape boys" argument, that's when I know the fundie lost the argument.

Fundamentalist Christian marriage is like two monkeys throwing poop.

Repent, Freedom! You must repent and stop your rigid, fundamentalist thinking! I'm telling you this because I love you and want to save you from burning in hell for eternity!

Can you feel the love?

I don't think God would disapprove of a gay clergyman.

He would disapprove of a gay clergyman who threw his sin in the face of God.
