I am sick and tired of homosexuals crying for equal rights.
The Judeo-Christian faiths believe according to their religious Holy Scripture whether that be the Torah, or the Holy Bible, that homosexuality is an abomination before Almighty God. In other words it is a sin punishable by God.
Even Islam does not defend the homosexual lifestyle. All three faiths see the sexual lifestyles of these people as sinful but will not turn these people away,out of love for their fellow man, which God commands.
These people are welcome to worship God but expected to mend their ways and change, to shun their sexual orientation and become hetro-sexual. They are asked to change the onething in themselves they either cannot or are reluctant to change.
Would it not be easier and make more sense for these people rather than changing their ways, to start up their own "New" Religion maybe call it the "Gay Church"? Then in their own church they could have their gay marriages and live their gay lifestyles.
Oh wait a minute, how would they be "Fruitful and multiply and replenish anything"? I guess they would have to skip the being fruitful, replenishment part and the multiplying. Legal Adoption would not be acceptible either since a child needs a mother and a father not mom and sis or dad and bro.
Since homosexuality is a chosen lifestyle, then why don't these people choose to live like hetro-sexuals instead of rocking the boat all the time.
So, you have no tolerance towards others even though you yourself demand equal rights to believe in your religion and to be treated fairly.
Then obviously, you have absolutely no say in the matter. Hence, this thread is nothing more than a way for you to create conflict, intolerance an hatred.
Again, you have absolutely no say in that matter.
Why don't you show some tolerance instead of rocking the boat all the time?
People who lack tolerance towards others are always the first to demand it for themselves. The fact that they don't see the irony in this is amazing.
I tollerate these people anywhere and everywhere for whatever the reason. But because they choose to be or act differently than the norm doesn't mean that they can.
"I am sick and tired of homosexuals crying for equal rights."
The obvious solution is to give them their equal rights.
Wow, that was easy.
And it's obvious that you've an agenda that doesn't consist of equality. Good show on you. You rather control people in the name of your imaginary god. Another good show on you.
I am not trying to control anyone here. I'm just sick of their "Poor pity me attitude, when they know that they are trying to change or over turn religious biblically based beliefs. They want to fit into society, but they want things their way. "You can't have your cake and eat it too." Sorry
God made the rules for society, society follows as God commands and these people want to have one foot outside the box and one foot inside. Nope ain't gonna happen, not in my lifetime.
They are not trying to change biblical based beliefs, they want equality which religion continues to undermine.
Equality is for everyone, not just those who believe in a god.
Says you. You're against equality.
Prove outside of the ridiculous bible or any other religious book that a god created the rules. I dare you.
I can see you intolerance and hatred for other people who don't live by your beliefs. Good show. Get over yourself and your imaginary god.
They know what the bible says about homosexuality but they ask that it be overlooked or ignored so that they can belong. NO!
I donot have to prove outside the Holy Bible anything since my religious belief is based upon the Holy Bible.
I don't belong either then, because I don't see how you have the right to impose your religious beliefs on others.
So is your sad intolerance and inability to see beyond yourself to live peacefully with others.
Talk about sad.
Our Government (and laws) are free from Religion. So they should be afforded equal rights. At least in the good ol' US of A.
Who cares if they can't be "fruitful and multiply", we have a population issue as it is.
I haven't met a single person yet who follows the bible completely. They always follow it according to how they live, not as it is written. So using the bible to condone or condemn is faulty, if one is not following it to the letter themself.
And since most of todays christian's consider themselves "under grace" and therefore free for all of 614 commandmants, with the exception the "Ten Commandmants", please show me where in the Ten Commandmants anything condemning Gays.
Who are you to say that? Why should you be allowed to hold your religious beliefs?
Sorry, God (thank goodness!) didn't make the rules for society. Society did, and while some are similar to God's laws many aren't. Some even go so far as to (shudder) directly contradict and refute God's laws.
I highly doubt that there is a soul on earth that follows ALL of God's laws (especially those made up by the priesthood) - everyone thus has one foot outside and one foot inside. Even you.
There are no man made laws that supercede God or His laws, none.
What a joke. Yeah, you're right this thread is a joke.
You do understand that 'God's law' is all in the interpretation? You guys believe whatever suits your fancy and call it the law.
And, there it is in a nutshell.
YOU and your religion are the authorities over us all. Sorry, that ain't gonna happen.
LMAO, Come on gays... us bi's can help you all reproduce. I'm already 4 in.
I don't think you get it girl. No gay man is going to get in bed with a woman bi or otherwise for sex. It is an aversion for them just as it is for a lesbian woman to sleep with a man.
Typical. Have you ever heard the term "artificial insemination"?
Or do Christians refute that as a sin? Must be a real shortage of religious farmers as nearly every farm in the country freely practices it.
So it's only gay MEN you have a problem with...Me thinks you doth protest too much...I've found that blatant homophobia is generally a result of latent homosexual desires. Fear of society's reaction to inner desires sometimes causes males (in particular) to turn their lack of self-acceptance outward onto others who with the courage to live their life the way the homophobe wishes they could. They use religion as an excuse a lot, because who could be righter than God? Its pitiful really.
You have absolutely no say in that matter. None.
I thought tongue in cheek meant a joke. I don't find it particularly funny, and it seems a little tasteless; but it's still a joke. I'm not sure why people are bashing you. You don't actually believe what you wrote in the OP. Do you?
Tongue in cheek does mean it's a joke. It is a joke that these people would demand to be considered as equal to a hetro-sexual society, its laws and its religious beliefs.
Oh. I see why they are bashing you. I say, they should probably bash on.
"It is a joke that these people would demand to be considered as equal to a hetro-sexual society, its laws and its religious beliefs."
So you believe in a privileged status for yourself and people like you, not equality at all.
At least you're honest about it.
That's called intolerance. You make demands to believe in your god, which others may find to be a joke, too, yet you are free to do so.
It's not a little tasteless; it's a whole lot tasteless.
Unfortunately, the OP actually does believe and promote such bigotry and hatred. Gays are not equal to him, just as black slaves were not equal to their owners. Shoot, they weren't really "people" at all!
Well, I was trying to be polite when I said 'a little'. I find it hard to believe that anyone who believes this hateful nonsense would have the audacity to state it so openly.
Will the world never run out of bigots? I am tired of reading hatred which comes from extreme views. It is by no means only the religious who have hatred in their hearts, religion is one excuse amongst many that entitles people to hate anyone who is different to themselves. I find it all rather depressing, and have lost hope that humans will ever be able to live together. Bring on the swine or bird flu and wipe us all out. Give the other animals a chance. They can't make a worse attempt than we have.
It's the ego that likes to stand up and say, "I am better than everyone else because (insert phrase here)."
It is human nature to fear that which we don't understand. So instead of pushing past the fear and really identify where the issue is coming from we let the ego take over and do our bidding for us. Its a nice easy and comfortable way to push our insecurities off on someone else and let them take the blame.
I would assume that our friend here has had some unsavory experiences with homosexuals and instead of making an attempt to educate and operate out of love and understanding he chooses to hide behind the fear of the unknown. Either that or he is allowing religious indoctrination to cloud his better judgment and make his decisions for him.
Take responsibility for your fears and emotions. Don't dump them on someone else because you choose to be ignorant instead of understanding.

Is religious shunning a form of mental and emotional abuse?Some religions, under the guise of keeping the flock pure, shun members who leave the faith. Is this a form of psychological abuse that should it be permitted in society?
