If that book did not produce the results I was begging for with tears.. then I would have simply abandoned it 60 years ago!

Not really, if you were brought up to believe something and it was indoctrinated into your psyche plus reinforced by others around you, it would be virtually impossible to break away from what you were taught simply because you not dare to question anything contra to what you already believe in

When man was first developing and lived in tribes, it was quite common for the men to go hunting for long periods and the women would stay back looking after the children etc. The women would live in communial huts and would have sex together. The men would do the same while away from the village. It seems that homosexuality has only become a problem since we "got religion" and out of the entire animal kingdom, the present human race is the only ones who think that sex is just between male and female. We have become far too "intelligent" for our own good.

Please elaborate what God Promised YOU (personally)!!

How do you know it was God - if he does't exist like you keep claiming

Unless you become as a child you cannot enter - experience - understand or comprehend Heaven. For of such is the Kingdom

Children have no problem accepting God - Adults are much too smart.

Without FAITH - it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God!

Therein: lies the difference!!
Actually I'm a non-believer.

I'm just puzzled how this topic got so far off track and into the realm of fairy tales and claptrap that can't be proven.

(I'm not a fan of Obama either)

Wow your presumption is running wild in overdrive; When I started reading the bible it was to find FAULT WITH IT. I didn't believe any of what I was taught as a child!

You are so far off base and out in left field you are in a totally different ball park

But..... I guess to you - YOUR excuses sounded good (to you).

It was only when I began doing what the bible PROMISED that I got the results it PROMISED

I concur

Combine that with the glamorization of homosexuality in entertainment and you've got an explosion of gay friendly sexual imagery in the media which translates to young people and the sexual confusion they are exhibiting today (e.g. young girls and boys playing with bisexuality, gender confusion, etc.). School systems teaching homosexuality to kindergartners to desensitize and normalize them at a very young age to gay "culture".

I think the sexual "confusion" is not so much having to do with sex itself but more to do with a sense of belonging and the need to be loved. If you look at the wat society is heading there are less loving relationships and more "agreements and understandings" that produce unloved children

The downfall of American society.

The true downfall of American society is greed which has nothing to do with sex

Let's also not forget that in the classical era homosexuality was quite acceptable. It was religion that took hold of the Roman/Greek empires and crushed all of the lechery that was quite the norm. I have a feeling that many gays still resent that today it's not so easy to pick up young boys for sex as it was during the time of Julius Caesar and Caligula, and another reason why they have such a disdain for religion and Roman Catholicism because of the hypocrisy of the gay Priests having their way with all those young boys under the guise of the Almighty.


Being gay has nothing to do with sex with children, that is a sickness in itself. I know many gay men and women who love God, but like you said the hypocrisy of organized religion attacking them while the Catholic preists have been molesting young boys for centuries gets ignored

I think that you are little off kilter. What child looks for fault in the Bible? Especially when it is introduced to them by an authortarian adult?

Now you are here to tell everyone on this forum that you have never found any contradiction or fault in the writings of the Bible? You are either lying or delussional

Yes, and faith can exist in the absence of religion.

One doesn't need religion to exercise faith or acknowledge God.

No one is born 'GAY"! No one is born a murderer. You choose your destiny through the thought process - nothing more.

Keep thinking about it.. and you cause it to grow & bloom; Dismiss the thoughts and they go away!
How long have YOU been suppressing your "gayness?
