Just for the record, the pastor is kinda wrong. There are consequences for homosexuality in the bible. Somewhere is Jeremiah it mentions and that a man who sleeps with another man shall be stoned or something like that. However, divorce was permitted only if the men was abusive, of course it was seen as disrespect but still. Now, don't get me wrong, I am completely for equality and down with the hate and all that (my dad's a pastor so it's a little hard on the family to express my views) but changing a whole religion to make a point does not make it any better.

I respect your comment, but changing the whole religion to make a point was done so many times throughout history including when kings would have books of the bible destroyed because they didn't agree with them

I guess it could work that way. But that pastor is pretty much changing what the bible is teaching, and as far as I'm concerned, that's a major no-no in the bible rules. Revelations something, don't change any words because God will erase your name from the book of the living. I say to either go all out in religion or all out in any other point of view you should take. But that's not Christianity, that's deception.
(plz don't say that all religions are deceptive)

The worldwide hetz against homosexuality has nothing to do with religion. It's just being used as an excuse to condemn something that scares you. But let's face it, people are ******* assholes  badum tss

Except no, it's almost entirely because of religion. Whether a religion teaches people to hate both the "sinners" and the "sin", or just the "sin" itself, it still has the same result.

Hate breeds fear. How many non-religious people do you know who are against homosexuality? In my case, I can't even think of one.

Generally speaking, it scares people because of their religious upbringing. And even if you weren't brought up religious, some douchebag at school was and made "being gay" an insult and something to be ashamed of.

"I disagree with you, so you, another human being who is just as much a person as I am, should not have children and never experience the feelings felt while playing with your son on a warm afternoon. Because you said something I don't like."

We all get caught up arguing that we don't realize what we say. I know quite a few people who are actually sterile and would give anything for a natural-born child. Can we lay off each other?

You're looking to far into it. When that's used as a closing statement, it's just to remind the other debater that they are acting foolish and ignorant. It's simply put into internet speak because seeing someone say something that civilized in an internet argument would be too out of place.

I work with serveral gay people and I my self, being a straight guy, am not bothered by the most of them, they're actually great guys, good to talk with. But there's this one diva faggot that really grinds my gears. This guy literally hits on most guy customers and commonly talks about his "exotic expirences" that none of the other employees want to hear.

Exactly. Slightly camp guys that are clearly gay never ever piss me off, and i'm a crazy homophobe. But just one faggot squealing and talking in constant innuendos is enough to make me desire murder.

Just like a straight guy constantly being pathetically crude around women is irritating, or a ridiculously slutty chick gets annoying.

Don't worry we hate them too.
They give us a bad name, ruin pride parades, take it too far. They are that ****** that dresses up like Santa every day because he likes Christmas. Gay pride= once a year. So stock your cockings and get ready to cum down the chimney when its gay pride week but till then I should ask that flamers don't be such a massive faggot. It gives people the wrong idea. That last part was only there for a clever pun

Because remember where gay people have made HUGE advancements elsewhere in some areas we are still fighting for equality and acting like a faggot around conservatives scares them into fighting harder or firmly believing "This **** ain't right"

I'm a proud gay bear and I'll tell anyone if they ask but often times I am shy about my sex life so all I reply with is "I like dick"

Agreed, I lived with my best friend before and he was gay. Now I supported his fight to get married and have the same rights as everyone else, but my god was he an unpleasant person. He's been in college hopping from course to course for 10 years now, just hoping to be there anytime young guys want to experiment. Which is sorta predatory if you ask me. But yeee I think he gives normal gays that just want to live their lives peacefully a bad name.

No church name
No pastor name
And whoever made up this story fails to realize that divorce isn't a controversial topic for Christians--it's blatantly obvious it's a sin and that's generally accepted.

Not to mention the Bible DOES describe the consequences of a homosexual lifestyle just as it does divorce and any kind of sexual immorality, there's entire bloody chapters devoted to that very topic in Romans and 1 Corinthians

Besides, the divorce rate among protestant Christians in the US is around 20% versus the 50% national average. And that's just for people that at the very minimum claim to be Christian.

"-it's blatantly obvious it's a sin and that's generally accepted."

That's why it's controversial. Many Christians get divorces despite the fact the Bible makes it clear that it's a sin. Do they stone each other and condemn each other? No, yet they like to condemn homosexuality even though the Bible dislikes both.

Oh it's much worse for us than it is for the generation before us. The probability of getting a divorce is 50% but that's for the whole population. The probability of it happening for our generation is much higher. Let me explain:

Let me define the following events:
A = you are old gen
B = you are young gen
F = failed marriage
P(F) = P(F|A) P(A) + P(F|B)P(B) => .5 = P(F|A) (.3) + (.4)(.7)
(research shows that older adults divorce at only 40% rate)
So P(F|A) is over 70%, my advice is don't get married, because it will most likely end in a divorce with child support payments and your children getting abused / raped by a stepfather.

Ok, so 76% of the people (christians) have a 20% divorce rate, doing math this means that their total divorces equal to approximately 15% of the the total 100%, so the other 24% of the people make up the rest of that 35% divorce rate.

You see where I'm going with this, for every marriage that happens within those 24% of the other population there are nearly one and half divorces. They somehow get divorced more than they get married.

I know I'm going to get thumbed down for proving you wrong with math but I thought some people should know you're throwing out ******** facts.

That's the way many of the Christians I know, including myself, see it. According to the Bible, is homosexuality a sin? Yeah. Is most everything you or I do in our daily lives a sin? Yeah. There was never a "being gay is worse than lusting after a woman who is not your wife" passage, but we like to act like there was. People like to think that somehow being gay is more evil than premarital sex, but it isn't. In general, we don't have a right to judge other people, as that isn't our place, and doing so doesn't make you holy, it makes you a bigot. Jesus chose to spend his time around people who were the degenerates of the time, and he loved them and treated them like normal people. I wish people would look at that more often than they look at Leviticus.

EXACTLY WHAT I'VE BEEN TRYING TO SAY! another passage Jesus says is that the meter by which you measure will be used against you, so if you commit any FORM of sexual innadequacy then you are just as bad off as the people who comit homosexuality. we are all equal. i shouldn't try to deal with your sin when i have a hard enough time dealing with my own!

idk if this story is real but it's not really unrealistic. Most of the Christians I know don't think of homosexuality as something to condemn, and all of the ones who actually follow Jesus' words and Jesus' actions over the rest don't think of homosexuality badly, either.

As Jesus said, "Let he who has not sinned throw the first stone." These things actually carry some weight for those who don't use religion as a front for hating things they don't like/understand.
