Why are they still being discriminated in society when they are still human beings?
Gays, Bis and Trans are all right... but i HATE those others!!!!!
I feel the same way accept when you stated, 'but i HATE those other!!!'
The reason I ask is simply why you hate others in this world when it is better to love and care about them. Isn't it better to be united in this world than to fall apart in hate?
For lots of reasons. Some people fear those that are different in any way from them. Politically, this divide and rule strategy is useful, because it helps to keep the masses (or those that believe everything the see on TV, or read in the gutter press) distracted, deflected, whatever you want to call it, from some realities. Greek One is being Greek one, and using humor to highlight hypocrisy.
You make a great point here. Sometimes its easier to 'bandwagon' by hating on a weak minority or group than to turn around and stick up for them.
These groups have historically been easy targets and so bullies tend to center in on them. We're finally entering a time where views are changing though and homophobia is looked down on by many people, just as homosexuality used to be. As such tolerance and defending persecuted minorities is becoming seen in a much more postiive light, which results in bigots either rethinking their ideas or keeping them to themselves. There's obviously still a long way to go, but things are getting better.
Because they are directly violating God's Word! God created them male and female--Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve!
wow Emily...you are coming down hard on folks.....
It is the truth, and the truth needs to be told and stood for. I see no reason to beat around the bush. God's Word stands.
so...what do i tell my sister?...she's a gay catholic .....
How about the truth? That seems to be the best option. Iknow it can be difficult to stand for the truth with family, but we must.
truth about what tho?...she's married too...lesbian marriage...she's happy and has a good life......i'm happy for her....
The truth that her lifestyle is sin and because of her sin (which we all have sinned) she is headed to Hell. I too am a sinner, but you see, I trusted Christ as my Saviour and now I am headed for heaven. She may seem happy now, but what a person reaps, he will also sow.
that is sooooo bad...to say my sis is headed to hell......wow!
so...how are you a sinner?...i'm not....i despise the word 'sin' btw.......
I didnot say she was headed to Hell, God's Word did
Anything that violates God's Word is a sin. "There isnone righteous,no not one"
whatever Emily...you are repeating something that you've read...and not considering the larger picture....life is not black and white....sometimes i wish it was...but it's not...it's grey...discretion and good judgement is necessary most times...thinking for yourself is a good thing in combination with beliefs.....
God didn't tell us to hate people, regardless of their personal decisions. God's greatest commandment is to love one another. Also, I'm pretty certain he says to leave the judging up to him. No Christian can profess to love God when he hates another. (1 John 4:20)
hey...now that's better....i doubt if god would judge my sis...she's a good person....and believes in god too...
Who said anything about hating gays? God hates sin, but he loves the sinner.
The Bible says that our righteousness (goodworks) are as filthy rags.
what?...i don't get it..........................................................................oh i see, being gay...being who you are.....is a sin.......wow!
not according to my sis....sheesh, she's been living what you a call a lifestyle for decades now.........most of her life...........................guess she doesn't know....now come on Emily..........guess you don't have any family that are GLTG...and if so, i feel for them
I think God will judge us by the intentions of our hearts. He's merciful and loving and I'm getting too preachy, so I think I'm going to go do homework now.
Just because you believe in God does not mean eveeything is ok with you....the Bible says even the devils believe and tremble
I never said that all you had to do was believe. Also, there are scientific studies that are proving that being gay may be genetic, just like some people are predisposed to going bald, or being an alcoholic. Just remember, God's greatest commandment is to love one another. Are you really going to go against that in the name of self-righteousness?
Scientific studies? No,more like someone trying to find an excuse to sin.
Let me say, I amnot trying to sound hateful, I simply believe and follow God's Word. I share His Word out of love for the lost. I do not wish to see anyone go to Hell.
Sometimes the best way to share God's word is just to love others.
I do out of love. If what you mean is "love the homosexuals" and agree with them, then, sorry, no.
you can't convince me Emily....and i'm not nor is my sis the devil trembling ....let's just agree to disagree....i'm not going to hell and neither is my sis....she's going straight to heaven - she's on the fast track....me, i'm not sure yet where i'll land....somewayouttahere, that's all i know......
and Shanna11 - you've got homework to do ....later....

I no longer can imagine hating anyone since Childhood.How can a Christian hate 10% of our World's population and still love Jesus, both at the same time?

I have heard a lot of the gay rights movements comparing themselves the civil rights movements in the 60's. They say that their struggle for equality is the same as Black people's struggle and women’s equality and such. Is it the same thing?I don't know much about what gay people are deprived of...

Is gay marriage better then straight marriage???The straight marriage divorce rate is off the chart. Are the gays the ones who have the marriage thing all figured out?

I am for same sex marriage.Please , most Americains; take all this with a grain of salt 1. Children must have a male and a female role model at home. Single parents are forbidden to raise children.2. Heterosexual marriages cannot produce children. Old people couples can’t, but who cares?3....
