As a Christian, I don't support homosexuality. However, I have no problem with what someone else chooses to do with their life. It's them, not me. So, I say let them legalize gay marriage in all 50 states, and let it go from there. It would boost the economy a bit just through all the marriages that would occur, and in-turn, all of the divorces.

what do you mean "as a christian"?? i'm a christian too but i support omosexuality!

Because the way I've been raised is believing that homosexuality is a sin. I'm not sure how you can support homosexuality and call yourself a Christian. But, as I said, I have no problem with it, but I will not go out of my way to support it.

The section in the bible that apparently says homosexuality is wrong and a sin is actually heavily misconstrued. The part I am referencing is Leviticus, which is actually a book about property law in reference to Christianity. The part which says "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable." is not a direct translation of the original text, it's more of a biased paraphrasing of it. What that part actually meant was don't treat man as you would a woman, as that is detestable. Looking at the time, that means, dont treat a man like property, as you would a woman, because that is wrong. Beyond this, the bible says nothing more on the issue of male and male or female and female relations.

Which brings me to lesbianism, which in now way is ever condoned. In the misinterpretation, only man and a man is considered a sin. But whatever, the interpretation is wrong. If you don't believe me, please read original or direct translations of the bible rather then paraphrased texts from what someone thought it meant.

There's various sects of Christianity out there, some of which are perfectly fine with homosexuality. Certainly the more outspoken Christian groups are against it but that doesn't mean all Christian groups are.

You needed something?

Perhaps I should have rephrased my earlier comment. I'm Baptist, which is why I believe the way I do.

Even withing Baptism, different churches have slight differences. For example, I'm sure you don't act like the Westboro Baptist Church does.
#465 to #458 - anon (08/01/2012) [-]
Oh no, of course not. Westboro is ridiculous.

And while they are an extreme example, they do demonstrate that not every church follows the same teachings.

I believe in God, and evolution, and support homosexuality.
#424 to #412 - anon (08/01/2012) [-]
How can you believe in God and evolution? They contradict each other.
#541 to #424 - twilightdusk (08/01/2012) [-]
There's actually a sizable portion of the country that believes in a sort of "guided evolution," the concept that God did create us, but rather than just magicking Adam and Eve into existence, God set the process of evolution into motion and guided it to what we see today. It's basically a subset of the concept that God created the world with a set of rules, and the purpose of science is to determine what those rules are.

#481 to #464 - anon (08/01/2012) [-]
Ah, I see. So, do you consider yourself agnostic?
User avatar #491 to #481 - FAISCISTBUG (08/01/2012) [-]
technically yes. I just don't believe any religion has it completely right if any at all.
#542 to #491 - twilightdusk (08/01/2012) [-]
If you believe in some sort of God, but not as presented by any existing organized religion, I think the proper term for you would be a Deist. I'm not entirely sure about that though, if you know better about what a Deist is feel free to correct me.
