Oh so you mean that not allowing homosexuals to marry is a ********** belief?

Freedom of speech. It's not intolerant to speak of something. It is intolerant to move to try to make something illegal or take away someone's rights because you think your book says so.

someone's beliefs are ****** when they use them to justify their persecution or prejudice as right. People also used to say that slavery was not morally wrong because there was nothing in the bible that stated it was.

I only have an issue with people who ruin other peoples lives just because they don't believe in the same things they do. Go ahead and be a homophobe, I couldn't care less, but don't try to keep other people from being happy just because it doesn't line up with your beliefs.

Pretty sure I'm gonna get **** for this, but the difference is that People that are against gay marriage are actively refusing other people the right to marry the person they love, while people that are pro gay marriage just want everyone to have the same rights. You can have your opinion about gays and how "wrong" it is, but you don't get to deny them rights you yourself enjoy just because YOU think it's "Icky" or disgusting.

If this difference is not obvious enough, try to imagine how you would feel if you were ridiculed, beaten, laughed at or threatened just for loving you girlfriend or wife. And people would deny you the right to marry her because THEY think it's disgusting. They think it's wrong, so obviously you don't get to marry. THEN you would fight for your rights as well.

I'd say the best comparison to make would be to compare it to a case where a dude is attracted to severely obese women - that way it would be easier to connect the "only have a problem with it becasue it grosses you out" point.

“Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society... then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them... We should therefore claim, in the name of tolerance, the right not to tolerate the intolerant.”

#77 - kloudianorici ONLINE (11/25/2013) [-]
Let me explain something to all of you.
Yes the old testament says all of this is punishable.
Yes Jesus says that many of the Old Testament laws don't apply anymore.
He does however say that we must still follow the ten commandments.
Sexual immorality is one of the ten.
Homosexuality is considered by the Bible as immoral sexuality.
There are also lots of people who oppose premarital sex, they just don't go out and protest it because there are no laws being levied about it.
Thus people protest gay marriage because there are laws being levied that support it and they believe the Bible.
User avatar #111 to #77 - xdeathspawnx (11/25/2013) [-]
the new testament still says that divorce is wrong and should not be allowed, but nobody wants to make that illegal. It just shows that the real reason these people are protesting is because of their prejudice and hatred towards homosexuals, the bible is just what they use to justify it.
User avatar #123 to #111 - kloudianorici ONLINE (11/25/2013) [-]
Falsity #!: Christians are actually morally obligated not to hate homosexuals, just to disagree with them.
Falsity #2: People indeed want to make divorce illegal, they just never show up on the news.
User avatar #134 to #123 - xdeathspawnx (11/25/2013) [-]
yes some people protest divorce, but not nearly as many as protest gay marriage. I understand that they should disagree with other people and not hate them, but the fact that many of the people protesting gay marriage have no problem with divorce (many of them probably have been divorced) shows a lot of people do not care about what certain parts of the bible say and only use it as an argument when it suits their needs. I myself am Christian, but I refuse to accept what the bible says as a legitimate argument unless the person arguing follows it in full.
User avatar #137 to #134 - kloudianorici ONLINE (11/25/2013) [-]
Also, it has been fun having a reasoned argument with another intelligent individual. Thank you for the mental processing that you made me do. Always good to actually think hard about something once in a while.
User avatar #136 to #134 - kloudianorici ONLINE (11/25/2013) [-]
The real fact of the matter is that there are so many "cultural christians" who just identify themselves as christians but don't even try to be christ-like. They end up ruining the reputation of real christians. The westboro baptist church is an example of this.
User avatar #145 to #136 - xdeathspawnx (11/25/2013) [-]
I completely agree. I think of it this way, the bible is a very archaic book written in a very different time and place from where we are now. Even the old testament was passed on by word of mouth for hundreds of years before being written down, so it can't be considered completely correct. instead of trying to decipher these books (which are not even in their original languages) to find out what is right and wrong, I think about what God and Jesus would want me to do if they were watching.

It sucks that there are people who use good things to justify doing wrong, but there will probably always be people who act that way in this world. The best we can do is focus on ourselves and try to lead by example.

When did J-man say that about the Old Testament laws? I thought he didn't want to change old laws
User avatar #446 to #77 - nigeltheoutlaw (11/25/2013) [-]
I have two questions since you seem to know what you are talking about:

1: Doesn't sodomy (any sexual acts that aren't vaginal sex) also fall under immoral sexuality? If so, why don't people protest that in addition since it's morally reprehensible according to Biblical law?

2: This brings me to a broader question: why nitpick against only gay marriage when there's other things in our society that are explicitly prohibited in the Bible? What makes gay marriage "more" bad than the other things?

Don't take these personally, I am just legitimately curious as for the answers.
User avatar #470 to #446 - tealcanaan ONLINE (11/25/2013) [-]
In a lot of states sodomy is illegal, but they can't do anything if it's in your own home. They can however prevent gay marriage.
User avatar #471 to #470 - nigeltheoutlaw (11/25/2013) [-]
I wasn't asking about legality, I was asking about this from the viewpoint of this one guy.
User avatar #485 to #471 - kloudianorici ONLINE (11/25/2013) [-]
The reason that there aren't people in the streets protesting blow jobs and anal sex is that these, while illegal by old testament law, are not things that we can control through laws today. Secondly,because in the Bible God states that there is no sin worse than any other sin, they are all equally evil, the protests against gay marriage are just happening because there are laws being levied in that direction and people are so integrated into the society that they don't realize that other things that they are doing are against leviticus' laws. Truthfully, I have not managed to read through all of leviticus myself, as that entire book is like reading an enormous legal document. Have I given you satisfying answers or would you like more?

Eh no you are wrong. The bible states the Jesus overcomes the law and that all who follow are above the law. Those who follow the Jesus are free from the law and instead live to love Jesus. The bible states that if you are near those who follow the old laws then you should follow them, however Christians are under no obligation to follow them.

Look, I'm getting tired of seeing all the christian bashing. And I honestly don't give a damn how many red thumbs I get, because I'm not selling out for anyone. I am a christian, not the best ever mind you, however I have NO qualms with gay people. But sitting here and saying I've got ****** beliefs because of what some douchebags do is unfair and makes you out to be a hypocrite for condemning others too. Not all christians feel this way, so don't single every christian out and bash us. You believe whatever you want, but stop making yourself look foolish and ignorant in the process. Just because I choose to have a religion different than yours gives you no right to assume anything or judge me. So don't become the ONE thing you seem to hate. Judgmental.

The reason why most people are against homosexuality, is because people believe it stops nature's way of reproduction.  Which I honestly don't get. There is no shortage of humans, so reproducing could come to a pause for a while with no problem. Even if you believe that's true, babies are born every few minutes, every day, 24/7. So Jane and Sarah scissoring in Houston, TX, or John and Robert sucking each other's meat poles in Phoenix, AZ is completely irrelevant.  Although sex is pleasurable and awesome, its main purpose is to reproduce. It feels good so many people could 			****		 and have babies, which won't kill off the human race. So many people have a problem with people doing that.   
   
Even though I completely disagree with those who are against homosexuals, especially when they use their religion against it, I can see why they would be so against gay people.   
   
 Eating pig, shaving your beard, getting divorced, wearing mixed cloth, and especially premarital sex, will not stop reproduction.

I think very very few people dislike homosexuality for the reason you cited. I doubt that if a gay teen is bullied in high school, the bullies tell him that they hate him for stopping nature's way of reproduction.

Most people hate people who are different simply because they are different. Whatever reason they might bring up is usually only a justification that they added on top of their already existing beliefs. I am absolutely sure that 99% of those people who use e.g. religion to justify their dislike for others would feel just the same way if they weren't Christians.

#409 to #391 - khassar (11/25/2013) [-]
Well I disagree with the notion that banning (or at the very least being against) homosexuality is caused by thinking that it will reduce reproduction. If anyone is seriously basing their entire argument around this, he or she will quickly realize that the number of homosexuals just isn't big enough for them to have a big enough impact on worldwide population. Most such arguments are usually brought up in order to mask the fact that a person's worldview is based solely on a single passage.

I mean, I agree that there could be some minuscule amount of people that dislike homosexuality solely because of some ****** pseudoscience, but the bulk of the hate parade is there because people can't let go off some very idiotic advice found in our holy books.

The verse "a man shall not lay with another man as he does with a woman" and the story of Sodom and Gomorrah where many homosexuals and sexual deviants lived, were in the old testament. If Christians only follow the new testament, then they should follow the teachings of Jesus, and he never forbade homosexuality nor much of anything. His sole teaching was to love one another and take care of each other whether they be a king or a leper.
User avatar #102 to #65 - snood (11/25/2013) [-]
no, u dont read the Bible. Jesus defines marriage as between a man and a woman and if there is any sex outside of marriage it is a sin. this is all part of the new testament.
User avatar #112 to #102 - ambiguous **User deleted account** (11/25/2013) [-]
He may not have agreed with what they did, but he didn't condemn them. Sure he had his beliefs, but he never forced anyone to follow him. He gave them a choice of what they wanted to do. My point is that Christians shouldn't condemn the people they see as sinners. They can believe what they want, but it's not their place to condemn anyone.

Well I dunno about you personally but for centuries homosexuality was punishable by death in Christian countries. (The buggery act in the UK for example)

i'm not saying they're right. However, some actually believe they're helping. it's twisted and wrong, but they do. They think that if they partake in homosexuality, they'll spend an eternity in hellish torture. they honestly believe they're trying to save them. I believe they're wrong. However, there are two sides of understanding and i don't think either are flat out idiotic. Even if they were, calling them idiotic isn't going to change their opinion. In fact, it'd probably just anger them and make them push harder against it. I believe the way towards a new world is through understanding, but also through the challenging of ideas.
