Why, you are not going to believe it unless it agrees with your theology and it wont.

Do you have any evidence the Bible was written by men?

Of course I do. And Mike's post is indicative of that view. As I said, "It's all about fear and self-preservation, based on the belief that God hates homosexuality and will destroy a nation that does not actively discriminate against people who are gay."

Oh geesh!!! Someone digs up a seven year old thread and you people are off to the races again. Why don't you all just give it a rest and go enjoy the Olympic games coverage or something?

You can thank Omega for digging it up.

But if you've changed your tune about what you posted, Mike, feel free to clear that up.
