Nobody's is preaching hate here, we're only asking those with such life styles to respect the rest of us who have kids and don't want to see that kind of behavior in public.
The mall is your temple?

Give unto God what is God's.

The Romans would have had no problem with lezzies on the forum.

I find it truly astonishing that people who profess to believe in a religion that preaches love, tolerance, and understanding can be so unbelievably hateful towards anyone who doesn't conform to their exact idea of what people ought to be.

I knew coming in to this thread there would be ignorant people spouting off their message of hate and intolerance, but to see all these people using the Bible to back up their hate-mongering is disgusting. How can you claim to be a Christian and have such seething hatred towards other human beings for no reason at all?

If there is a God, he is humiliated and ashamed by what some people try and pull in his name. God didn't tell you to only love pretty white heterosexual people. He said to love everyone...period. If being gay is "wrong", and I find it very difficult to believe it is since gay people are born that way, then that's between them and God.

So your kid see two women kissing. Big damn deal. Every week you probably take her to church where she stares at a number of images of a man in pain nailed to wooden boards, or gets to hear stories about people being stoned to death or burned alive, or how, if they don't behave exactly like the ghost in the sky wants them to, they are going to burn in a lake of fire for all eternity, so be good and eat your vegetables.

You people make me sick. If you truly believed in God, then you wouldn't sit there and hate other people for no reason at all other than they are different from you.

Worthless hypocrites and liars.

1. I am not a Christian.

2. Having read the bible, G_d wasn't very tolerant. Does Sodom and Gomorrah have any meaning? Not very tolerant based upon MY understanding....

1) Not a Christian either.

2) Christianity is based on the belief that Jesus is the son of God, and worship of him. Jesus said to love everyone as if they were your neighbor. He didn't say "Only love the straight, rich white people."

Jesus made a particular effort to include anyone cast aside by society or on the outside of it. He didn't say feel free to discriminate in my name...he said love everyone. He said the kingdom of Heaven is open to anyone.

Yes. He also said repent of sin, and that no one would enter into God's Kingdom with the stain of unforgiven sin. A murderer can be saved but must repent of murder, a prostitute can be saved but must stop prostitution, and a homosexual can be saved, but must stop perverse sexual practices. Jesus loved all, even many that he knew would not be saved.

Has he kicked out every het couple that showed signs of affection?
If not it was biased.

That's the statement that I made.
What you read into it is on you, not me.

Most hateros are shocked when they see it.

Do you comment on the fact that on TV there is very little normal affection shown? That a kid will see thousands of murders on TV by the time that they're 8? That women are shown as victims of violence numerous times daily?

Is violence okay but affection not?

What's the big deal with seeing love?
It also disgusts me when people "for the children" to promote their political agenda.
Be honest, it's not for the children, it's for you.

The hatred kids learn, they learn at home.
