So, you are saying that you read ONLY the post before you posted, because the one before that was:

pretty careless, I'd say. Seems reasonable to conclude that you were talking about homosexuality....not knowing that you really don't follow a conversation

Since the thread is about homosexuality I figured it was a fair conclusion. I'll make a note you'll use any thread to go off topic and lecture us on whatever strikes your fancy.

That would be supporting the LGBTQ community in their fight for human and civil rights.

I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.
Calling things for what they are does not discriminate against anyone.
When you act without love toward another, YOUR Soul is damaged. What you generate within YOU is black and unclean. You hurt the object of your unlove and their Soul is damaged. YOU own both effects. There is NO WAY to call someone an abomination with love, Finn. It cannot be done.

No, jeff, just their fight to be treated decently just like everyone else. You have no authority to mistreat them, call them names, refuse to hire them, prevent them from marrying the one they love, or refuse to do business with them. Leave them alone and mind your OWN "sins."
