I love homosexuals

I also love heterosexuals, little people, those from another race than mine, artistic, autistic, paraplegic, quadruplication, free thinkers and dreamers, kind heated folks, farmers, engineers , astronauts, ditch diggers, witches, broom makers, explorers, genius people, idiots , etc...etc...etc...

But most of all I love myself enough to know that if I hope for enlightenment and peace I must accept those around me that are unique and different than me.

It is what makes this world so beautiful and I love being a part of a beautiful world.

Since everyone's quoting

Here's one for you

Dexter 18:12

To live in peace and harmony we must all be tolerant of our brothers and sisters. Tolerance is key to coexisting in this brief life we have. Allow others to have the freedom to choose their own paths as I wish they will leave me to chose mine without judgement.

For Freedom!
The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.

Yer my new hero

I spend a lot of time on chat and just a few months ago one of us came out of the closet in chat and just said guys, I really hope you are still gonna like me because I'm gay.

And to our credit on this DP chat we were like aw man, is there anything we can do to help?

Because that qualifies you to me as a brave person. That gets you mega points in my book.

I don't know but I seen it. Gay people being persecuted sometimes lethally. I used to be an EMT in a big city. I have treated victims of gay bashing. Know what makes gay bashing violence worse than many other forms of violence?

They almost never fight back. In all my years running the bone-box I have almost never seen gays or trannies fight back against aggression. And that inspires in me something very similar to the protectiveness I feel for women. And it's very intense.

I just want to thank you and join with you in protecting our gay people. You have done a brave thing and I stand with you.

THEY WILL HAVE TO GET THROUGH US TO GET TO THEM.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

Wow, interesting that this

Wow, interesting that this post would stir up so much tension. People get over it. I don't think homosexuality is right, but it is also none of my business. I know a few gays and can find a way to get along with them just fine. I have a harder time , however, getting along with people that are neo-cons or pro big government, and the likes.

It is better to look dumb and not be, than to look smart and not be.

You Quote Ron Paul, Why Don't You Believe What Jesus Said

about the act of homosexuality?

When Jesus rebuked people from the localities where He had performed His greatest marvels, because they didn’t repent, He said:

And you, Capernaum, will not be exalted to heaven, will you? You will descend to Hades; for if the miracles had occurred in Sodom which occurred in you, it would have remained to this day. Nevertheless I say to you that it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for you. (The Gospel of Matthew 11:23–24)(NASB)

An unexpected destruction came upon the indifferent homosexuals
The second passage from the Gospel of Luke, when Jesus Christ mentioned the homosexuals from Sodom for the second time is in chapter 17, where it is related about the day when the Son of Man is revealed. Here is the description of this day:

It was the same as happened in the days of Lot: they were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building; but on the day that Lot went out from Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. It will be just the same on the day that the Son of Man is revealed. (The Gospel of Luke 17:38–30)(NASB)

judge yourself

apply the Bible to your own life if thats your thing. Love everyone else how they are please. God doesn't care. Lemme say it like this. Sexual orientation is about as important in the universe as a piece of bark falling off a tree, not very. God doesn't care, you shouldn't. Heck if God is the alfa and omega and not one thing exists without God than God is homosexuality. There I said it.

AUM

You Presume To Know God...Know This, You Know Nothing!!

God doesn't care? Really?

One day you'll know what God Loves and hates and I hope it isn't too late for you, yes you, The man that knows that God doesn't care..

lol...

God doesn't love you as you are, he loves you in your changed state.. God calls us out of our sin nature, not to continue sinning..What kind of salvation is that?

There is a command in the bible that is attributed to Jesus - "Be thou perfect as your father in heaven is perfect" - That is not necessarily achieving perfection but always striving for it every moment you live...

He told the woman that was about to be stoned for the sin of fornication - "Your sin is forgiven but go and sin no more"

Do you understand that?

God has no feelings

God is indiscriminate. Thats what I mean by god doesn't care. Is God a man somewhere?
Is the almighty bound up in some shell that has thoughts and feelings, opinions? God IS............Period!
anything past that and its hypocrisy. Yes i Know God. As much as I know Myself.

People focus way to much on Jesus and not enough on Christ. You too can View the world as Jesus the Christ did. With ever encompassing love and forgiveness for all beings. How can a book take away your ability to love unconditionally? Especially when that same book is telling you love UNCONDITIONALLY.

The Absolute!!!
The Omnipotent!!!!!
Lord of Lords!!!!!!
Personifying the boundless reality that is life with the name "GOD' is bad enough, everybody has to attach all these human persuasions to that. Talk about mud. We'll never grow if we can't shed these Identifications.

Anyone thinking they are separate from these "sinners" "homos" "regular people" are deluded.
We all breathe each others air.
We all share the matter that makes our bodes.
And most obvious, there is no separation between energy. ITS ALL ONE ENERGY. LOVELOVELOVELOVE
God is Love. God doesn't prefer Gayness. Hypocrisy.

AUM

I do not believe "Jesus" ever existed...Ron Paul is real....

I have not been convinced that there is a heaven and I have no fear of hell. The book you quote was written by a man and is poor fiction.If you rely on a fictional book that you think gives you the right to judge and denigrate other human beings,it is you who will be judged harshly if there is a master plan.

You Have Shown How Foolish You Truly Are...

Jesus never existed?

You are not qualified to argue the point because you don't know the history of a man who preached the gospel 2,000 years ago...

pathetic..

Wait...

How could Jesus preach something that wasn't written yet?

It may be you that doesn't know history. The person you were replying to is correct. There is no historical evidence, at all, for the existence of Jeshua as the Gospels portray. So, how can we "know the history" of a mythical figure?

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

Just Because It Wasn't Written Down At The Time Doesn't Mean

it didn't happen..What kind of logic are you trying to produce?

You ever hear of historians like Josephus? hummmm

You sound quit ignorant..It is very hard to get through to people who need proof...

Remember Thomas, the apostle who doubted? He spent three years with Jesus and still had no faith until he saw the wounds of the hands..

Blessed are those that believe who have not seen...

Yes, I know of Josephus

And, I know how even Biblical scholars have admitted the paragraph in question was a forgery. What else you got? I'll save you the time - nothing. Even the earliest Gospel was written at least 30 years after he supposedly lived. The last one over 100 years later. I know much more about your Bible than probably 99% of Christians.

I sound "quit" ignorant? I don't need "proof", that is a legal and philosophical term. I only require evidence.

"Blessed are those that believe who have not seen..." - I would say ignorant, not blessed. Believing without a shred of evidence is not a positive trait or worthy of admiration, it is worthy of ridicule.

Matthew 5:22 But I say to

Matthew 5:22

But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire.

What Does Being Angry Have To Do With The Sin of Homosexuality?

You shouldn't be angry with anyone (resentful) but how do you argue homosexuality is not a sin pal?

Jesus was outraged and cried out at the moneychangers in the temple but he didn't resent them, (Judge them) he just chased them out and rebuked them for turning the temple of worship into a place to buy and sell.

Do you know you can be angry without sinning? Resentfulness is a sin of judgement) or playing God..

Most people associate anger with judging. Until you can know the difference you will always er in understanding...

Huh? You make no sense!!!

My response was directed at you for calling my friend KMKOLSCH "foolish"

According to the book you live your life by if you call some one a fool you will burn in hell.
Maybe you missed that part?

Matthew 5:22

But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire.

I couldn't care less who people have consensual sex with.

None of my damned business. However, that being said, It's the individual who is important, not the group. Gays can marry anyone they choose. Why do they need, or anyone for that matter, the validation of a church, or a state? To me, that's the real question.

I don't want to hear about your heterosexual sex, nor do I want to hear about your homosexual sex. I, don't, care.

When did common sense become a super power?

unfortunately

When things like immigration stand in your way you need the blessing of the state. I am not a fan of it but that is the way the laws are at the moment.

Is Homosexuality Normal?: An Anology

If you saw a person walking down the street attempting to eat a hot dog through his nose would you believe that was normal?

Homosexuality is NOT normal behavior guys...

...and my God doesn't either as you may know already what he did to the twin cities of Sodom (Sodomites) & Gomorrah.

Don't excuse away the SIN of passive and active behavior of an avowed Homosexual...SIN Is SIN and you homosexual Dpers will have to answer someday for you degenerate behavior..

I'm not your judge, nor should I judge, only the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords is your judge. But don't expect me to have compassion and condone this degenerate behavior.

What you sow in life you shall reap whether it be good or bad behavior...

The first step in achieving salvation is to first admit you are wrong. To the degree you can admit you're wrong when you are wrong in the same way when you're right and nobody can talk you ought of it is the beginning of salvation from your SIN nature...

And Paul said, "And some of you were worse".

Normal is subjective.

You go first in admitting you're wrong. And keep it to yourself. Jesus said, "Go into your prayer closet and pray." Do not boast and brag about how righteous you are. It communicates and continues the stereo typical "Christian" neo-con, psychopathy.

When did common sense become a super power?

We are all sinners.

We are all sinners.

bias

can't use religious arguments to sway non-believers. separation of church yada yada

Thought we were all sinners?

Best part of any religious philosophy is tolerance. You can keep the rest.

Ron Paul is A Man For All Seasons

Lots children got him drunk

Lots children got him drunk and raped him after the destruction of Sodom & Gommorah. Is that normal?

Some of us do not believe in the fairytales of years past.

And it doesn't mean we are gay just because we stand up for individual rights of others who harm nobody.

My male goats are in love, are they sinners?

The problem with you is that you believe in a book written by men.From the very beginning of mankind there were men who wanted to control the hearts and minds of other men. What better way than to make up a "divine spirit" and pretend that the "spirit" is telling mankind what to think and do. Read Plato's Republic, as an example, or dozens of other tales that were similar to Bible stories. To me, you are a fool believing in old, not very well crafted fictional tales. You may think that there was "divine intervention" but a lot of people do not. A lot of those people are highly educated in philosophy, law, literature and history. Tell me what makes homosexual sex so evil? A man and women can perform the very same acts. Are they sinners as well? I think that your condemnation of human beings that do not harm the life, liberty or property of others is more vile and evil than anything that consenting gay adults can do in bed. What makes you think that your narrow little mind is fit to judge anyone?

Petty Differences

The bottom line is we all owe a death. Is our time well spent bickering over who believes what? The truth is NAP or it isn't. We need to practice this code in mind, body, and spirit. In our differences seek understanding and learn from them.

Matthew 19:11-12

Jesus replied"Not everyone can accept this word,but only those to whom it has been given.FOR SOME ARE EUNUCHS BECAUSE THEY WERE BORN THAT WAY;others were made that way by men;and others have renounced marriage because of the kingdom of heaven.The one who can accept this should accept it.".....

The conclusion I would draw from Christ's words is to accept that some people are born gay and not to hate,condemn or judge them for being born that way.I believe your conscience would lead you to the same conclusion,even if you did not believe in God.I posted these verses because I thought it might help some reconsider if they have any contempt in their hearts for gay people.

I do believe that Christ was most likely referring to gay people as part of the group of eunuchs that were born that way.
Most gay people will tell you they were born that way and I believe them.Why would they lie about this?

I have had many debates with fellow Christians about this verse and I am sure the debate on this will go on.That is why I think Christ prefaced the statement with "Not everyone can accept this word,but only those to whom it has been given" and added "The one who can accept this should accept it".I think the first type of "eunuch" described as being "born that way" is the obvious one out of the three described that would be difficult for some to accept.
Anyone who wishes to can do research on the history of gay people being referred to as "eunuchs".

Before you reply with Old Testament verses remember that verses in the Old Testament called for adulterers and homosexuals to be put to death which obviously differs from the words of Christ in John 8:7 when an adulteress is brought before Him and Christ says: "But only he who has never sinned may throw the first stone".In this case at least,I think most of us ,whether Christian,Atheist or other, can agree that Christ was right. Peace.

sorry

you have taken Matthew 19 terribly out of context....talking about divorce... Please read 1 Corinthians 7.....Shows God's plan right there... men and women should be married or remain single and celibate

This verse is not about divorce,it's about not getting married.

You said I was taking Matthew 19 "terribly out of context" because Christ was "talking about divorce",but I quoted Matthew 19 11:12 in which Christ was explaining why some would not marry,therefore they would obviously not be getting divorced.

My post was not about gay marriage.I don't believe the government should be involved in personal relationships between consenting adults whether straight or gay.I don't believe married people,whether straight or gay,should have any special rights or benefits that unmarried people do not have.I believe the government should only be involved in personal relationships when it involves children,such as in cases of child support,child custody or child abuse.

Couldn't have said it better.

Excellent.

When did common sense become a super power?

For anyone who thinks that

For anyone who thinks that homosexuality is a sin, an abomination, and a choice...

My 11 year old has high functioning autism. From a very young age, he was different... his actions, reactions, behavior patterns, etc. His brain is not neurotypical. He has his own way of seeing and living in this world.

My question then is: Is it really that much of a stretch to believe that homosexuals also have a unique way they view the world based on their own brain and intrinsic desires? Is my son also a sinner, an abomination -- and also choosing/faking all of his aspergers traits just to fulfill his secret, "devious" autistic desires? Or... is he safe from your persecution because he's not gay?

My son is not neurotypical. He is perfect and amazing and beautiful just the way he was made. I have lived through horrible struggles with him... struggles that lasted years... struggles that made the military send us back to the US 2 years early just so we could get him proper care. He was having such a hard time with school and life that he wanted to DIE when he was 8 years old. All because he was different and nobody understood what he was going through.

I cannot understand going along with any beliefs that say it's okay to persecute someone whose brain does not follow your supposedly correct line of thinking? If you don't think you are persecuting homosexuals by hating the sin... think again. Your actions of hate are not hidden... even if you think it is only aimed at the sin. When people are treated differently, for whatever reason, they can feel it. And it doesnt feel like love.
