No, I've got plenty. You asked why someone was attacking religion all of the time, when this subject comes up. I was explaining to you that religion makes for an easy argument, because you can't support it.

BTW, I haven't heard anyone in this thread talk about the topic, of how homosexual marriage is dangerous.
Grow up.

It's truly amazing, and amusing, how bent out of shape people like you become when you're called out for your relentless little displays of bigotry and hatred. Are you jtur88's alter ego?

So why DON'T you keep your atheism to yourself, instead of brandishing it everywhere, and throwing it in the face of anybody you don't like?

You might want to think about that.
I dont just toss it out there without being provoked. When I am provoked by a religious person with their lack of logic(bible) and they are trying to prove a point in a situation that does not need bible input I will react in kind.

No allegations. Just pointing out the obvious.


I want you to prove to me that homosexuals never leave that life to become heterosexuals.

I also want you to explain why it matters to you - and why you think you have to impose your viciousness on them, and impose your morals into their bedrooms.


O ye of great hatred and no argument...

And hey, guess what... When I'm provoked by some narrow-minded, hateful, hypocritical atheist I'm going to call you out on it.

There are at least 3 of you on this forum. It is truly amazing how bigoted, hateful, and closed-minded you folks are. And all the while you are bashing others for doing a fraction of the nonsense you are immersed in.

That's why I call hypocrisy.

Think about it...

I don't care if homosexuals sleep with a snake, I'm completely open minded about sexuality, and people can do whatever makes them feel good, as long as they aren't hurting anyone else.

You, on the other hand, seem to think that homosexuality is bad. The thread was about how does homosexuality hurt? So answer the question

Do you think homosexuality hurts people? If so, please provide proof.

I have no doubt that some homosexuals leave their same sex partner, and marry people from the opposite sex. The number is incredibly small, and in most instances, they usually cheat on their opposite sex partner, with members of the same sex. This is because they are living a lie.

There are also bi-sexual people. Perhaps many of those who marry of the opposite sex are just bi-sexual.

I haven't seen any study that shows that gays bash those that leave their community. Your PFOX website isn't a good source, as I said, even Christian websites show that they lie.

With that said, your own post seems pretty close to that line itself.
You are kinda breaking my irony meter by demanding other people shouldn't be allowed to voice thier opposition because they are "close minded"....so you are right and they are wrong?

P.S. There are plenty of non-religious people that are anti-gay. Go pick up a random rap record.
If you are closed minded you have the right to voice your opinion, but that doesnt mean you should. Yes, there are plenty of people who are non-religious that are anti-gay, but I am yet to meet one, I am yet to hear any argument as to why Homosexuality is wrong in anyway and hurts anyone in anyway that does not include religion.

If people only look at things from one side, their idiots and should not give any opinion.

Actually I think the majority of Americans do Support Gay marriage. The ones that say that they dont care, dont count on either side.

Go down to the local homeless shelter, food bank, people volunteering at nursing homes....then come back and tell me about all those awful religious people you met.
Yes, because giving food away and volunteering makes up for oppressing an entire community.

Demonizing an entire group because you are unhappy with the gay-marriage thing is childish. It's no different than some nutjob trying to paint all gays as pedophiles that prance about in tutus.
Your joking right? I never said all religious people where bad, just most. And Religious people demonize an entire group before they even understand that group, odds are they will never even try to understand the other group.

I have been on the other side of this issue, I was very religious then I discovered something called logic and woke up. I was condemning people I didnt know anything about. Well, as of now there is not one issue that I debate about that I dont know most sides of the issue.

Please elaborate on how I am being any of these things?

I said I dont care if someone wants to believe in religion, the bible, or GOd. Just keep it to yourself and dont try to impose laws that fit only to your lifestyle.

I do not hate religious people, I have two brothers that are very religious and they both support the Homosexual community. They are both very open minded and know how to balance faith and logic.

Close minded...Yeah, I dont see how I qualify as closed mined.

If you cannot answer this question then you have no reason to pester these good people anymore. So go back to your bibles and close-minded lives and leave them alone.

Im a christian, I believe in God. I also believe that God loves us all and its not up to me to judge soooo....I won't. If my sons grow up and they happen to be Gay Im fine with that. I want them to be happy and find love. I simply don't find homosexuals any sort of threat to my marriage at all.
I'll be honest I DON'T enjoy all the popularity that is today when it comes to threesomes and girls kissing girls and homosexual behaviors for popularity and attention. You see alot of young women today thinking this is "hot". That is irritating to me. Its very obvious when it's attention-seeking behaviors to get male attention (women and women) and when its clearly a love situation.
