Not agreeing with people's choices has nothing to do with wanting to take their free-doom away from them.

godspeed,

I want it to be understood that we do not hate anyone. Is it possible that your happy, healthy life may be damaging to the children you claim to love? We are not trying to pass laws to put you in prison, but laws are being passed world wide to put Christians in prison for hate speech and we just want everyone to know that we are reaching out in love. I realize that not all gay want marriage, not all gays want special laws, not all gays are militant, but the fringe few are the outspoken and trying to force laws and rules on others while screeming for tolerance when they are the ones not being tolerant. You do not want to compromise your beliefs and I am not going to compromise mine, bt I do not want you or anyone else to suffer for eternity because they made bad choices in the fleeting life.

Welcome to the discussion, I have seveal friends as well as myself who have made the straight choice over the gay choice and we all know it is not an easy path just as many tempting paths are not easy to resist.

I actually prefer watching news and documentaries, drink Dr Pepper or water, in a clean house, eating chichen caserole or raviolli. As for single parents I do not see them as being insulted because I know many who would prefer to be married so their children can have both parents.
I'm not talking about prancing around the house in a dress and heels There are plenty of studies out there that show children raised by a gay couple turn out just as well as those raised by straight couples.

It doesn't matter what you think of me, my family, or my children. No thanks to people like you, it's legal for us to be parents.

On this topic, God doesn't see different versions of truth. If we claim to abide by His Law, then we must acknowledge His law as the only truth. If not, then we are free to live by our own beliefs and rules, God explains the consequences of this choice.

Search and study the scripture and pray for the truth to be revealed to you. It will be given to you if truth is your honest and sincere desire and wish. Again, no one is in any position to condemn or judge you in any way. But everyone must decide whose law we will follow, God's or man's.

No.. they aren't all very good points. They are copied and pasted with no support for anything..

Every single point deals with either Sodom (translation issue)

or

OT law privy for priests

or

Corinthians (translation issue I already posted about)

In fact most of the points are just duplicates of one another. Its like 4 points.. thats it.

And there are plenty of studies to the contrary. Sorry but I do not like wearing womens clothing or shoes. Nice try. I understand it does not matter to you, if that is so then why are you here trying to cause strife where we are trying to find common ground?

So state your point.

Is your point that since Jesus endorsed marriage between a man and a woman then homosexual sex is a sin since they aren't married?
