Awesome + Infinity of an argument.
You have absolutely no idea what slaves were treated like in the south, you are just following the same old lie past down from generation to generation thru fragulent history books. Slavery was rampant nationwide and would be surprised as to who was the most abusive.

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.
And you call my statements stupid.

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!?)
So in your ignorant statements you would say that if someone wanted to stop someone else from commiting suicide then the person trying to stop them from doing what they want to do is hateful because they are impeeding their right to kill themselves.

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.
I realize homosexuality isnt new, but its acceptance as a normal lifestyle is new as well as its being given certain rights that should only go to the moral.



Quote:
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.
You miss the point of the statement, another person pointed out that other things were against the law and that homosexuality wasnt. My point was that homosexuality was at one time and therefore thanks to the legalisation of homosexuality and all the special rights they are asking for that those other things may become legal in the very near future thanks to the legalisation of this immoral act.

You are absolutely correct, now how do we get the immoral to understand this?

You are right, the Bible is not homophobic because there is nothing about homosexuality or sexual orientation in the Bible - a concept that was not recognised at the time the texts were first written.

How can the Bible be absolute if translators can change the meanings of the original Hebrew and Greek words and verses to suit their own biases or the biases of the church who commissioned them?
Actually Paul created a new word that is being translated homosexual, but if we must get technical the word sodomite was understood to mean the same as homosexual.

If that's the only way you comprehend it. Even my third graders knew when to "close their mouth" and listen and quit being the class clown.

Well see that is where things get confused. If we share Gods word, we are accused of judging or condemning. From what I understand from scripture we are to preach and teach the word to the world and then God will do the rest. In actuality the Word is offensive to the world but if we are not honest in our sharing then we hate those we do not warn.

You are only qualified to express YOUR understanding of the Word . . . NOT espouse it as infallible truth . . . because it is ONLY YOUR interpretation of the truth. As long as you qualify your witnessing as YOUR understanding then you will not be perceived as so obnoxious and arrogant and intolerant.
