And that's the only reason that doesn't present a double standard. Yet you'll invariably find in addition to the "Abomination against God" mantra all these other supposed reasons to make homosexuality wrong. I don't have a problem when you justify your own discrimination through scripture. Just don't try say that you're concerned about the health aspect and such.
"Homosexuality is a sin because God makes it perfectly clear.
Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable. Lev 18:22 (niv)"
I believe that the bible also mentions that menstruating women arn't allowed in church?
Didn't Lot, a supposedly righteous man, get it on with his own kids?
Don't pick and chose this crap. Adam and Eve would have had to screw thier own kids in order to populate the planet(an impossibility without the proper number of breeding pairs anyway) and you have a problem with some guy taking it up the ass, which harms no one?
Most biblical translations are crap anyway. Yeah, to know can mean have sex, but it can also just mean sit around, have a few beers and chat. People are still argueing over biblical semantics, so why pick one or two phrases out of a flawed text to fan the flames of hate. I love the tendency people have to overlook the love thy neighbor socialist bunnyhugging stuff in favor of the militant fire and brimstone stone casting stuff.
Get your heads out of your asses and out of people's bedrooms and concentrate on your own genetalia.
My husband's very proper god fearing religeous family disowned him because he was FRIENDS with a gay guy. But they are all that is good and clean and righteous and wholesome in the world, and he is sick and wrong for being tolerant?
Who said anything about looking down on homosexuals? Dude you dont know me and if you did you would know that i do not look down on anyone.
"God says it's a sin" and leaving it you have to come up with things that seem straight out of someone's butt?
Come on man like you would really accept that for an answer. If you go back to the top of this thread i believe the question was why and ment for disscusion.
"Homosexuality is a sin only because God says so."
Yes that is the main and most important reason but why not have fun with it and check out some results and statitsics of homosexuality.
"Any other reason looks like you're just trying make yourself feel justified in your discrimination."
What is with people these days? Is it a loss of common sense? Is it a double standard and the loss of the true meaning of tollerance? No were in this thread did i mention discrimination as you did.
Over the last few days i have done a bit of searching and almost all of the sites i checked out were almost all anti-hetersexual and if you were not supporting their cause you were discriminating. That my friend is true discrimination.
Sorry to hear about you family that is really to bad. I hope you do not make your basis of God fearing individuals on them. Believe it or not their is actuall answers for your ranting above. However this thread was actually about homosexuality.
Who said anything about looking down on homosexuals? Dude you dont know me and if you did you would know that i do not look down on anyone. The prevailing attitude towards homosexuals is definately that they are somehow inferior. Whether they're weak for giving into their cravings, are diseased, whatever, it is certainly significant. And I don't know you I, meant the "you" in there generically in reference to the "Someone" earlier in the sentence. I apologize for the poor grammer (rodeo). Come on man like you would really accept that for an answer. If you go back to the top of this thread i believe the question was why and ment for disscusion.That is in fact about the only answer I accept. When why someone doesn't accept homosexuality as a viable lifestyle, "It says so in the Bible" is the only non double standard. That is the only reason it's a sin too, so the need for discussion ends there too. Yes that is the main and most important reason but why not have fun with it and check out some results and statitsics of homosexuality. Why? I'll find that the mortality rate is probably similar to smokers, racecar drivers, and people living in the inner city. What will that tell me? No were in this thread did i mention discrimination as you did. Discrimination here simply means consideration based on class. Is that not what you're doing? You're considering a group of people (homosexuals) as sinners. Discrimination doesn't automatically mean get to the back of the bus. If you'd like me to use another word I'd be more than happy to. Targeting perhaps?
Okay the final word on why homosexuality is a sin.
CW is correct. Discrimination against Homosexuals is very unChristian.
"It is sinful for a women to have premarital sex."
Worst sexism ever.
Its sinful for ANYONE to have premartial sex...not just women.
For your information, most women get AIDS from their HUSBANDS, not from pre-marital sex.
I totaly disagree with you.
Times have changed, and now we have pills and condoms to prevent pregnancy and STD.
Oh, right, you don´t believe in evolution.
I dont care if you disagree with me, thats fine. I never said I didnt believe in evolution either, I just said there are good arguments for and against the theory my friend.
The fact is that you were created to be with someone else, just because you can deal with the consequences of sex does not mean that its acceptable to run around having sex. STD's and pregnancy are only PART of the reason one should not have sex.
In the bible this is reaffirmed over and over again, but I suppose you have used your "common sense" to reason it away. Id rather use God's sense, because my sense is too common, and very often wrong.
Ive fallen before and can't say that I wont again....but its clear this is what the scriptures teach Donna.
"STD's and pregnancy are only PART of the reason one should not have sex."
Which are the other parts?...
well because the bible says God created man to be with women...and because the bible says that you should refrain from having sex until your married. That you should keep yourself pure....that man and women are joined together spiritually during the act of sex. If you leave that person, your spirit has a toll taken on it as well. If you join together with a bunch of different people your not only stealing from the person you were meant to be with, but your also tearing your spirit every time.
Note in my book: garfner has prejudice against women and against homosexuals.
Oh boy...garfner you have officially been labeled my friend! Homophobe!!! Chauvenist!!! Might as well call you Adolf Hitler now and get it over with...
No, it is not a prejudice.
It is a concept based on what you write.
I can agree on disagree, can´t you do the same?
So you have prejudice against very sinner?
against the sinner...he said against the sin.
You people still need to brake this paradigm of "the bible is the truth"...
You seem to like to condemn people, to judge an act that has no harmful consequences as a sin, only because it is written somewhere.
Or perhaps only because people disagree with your beliefs.
You are forgetting the more important lesson that is in the bible, that is to love.
And love shows compassion, tenderness. It can be firm, too, but not to hurt.
Homosexuality is not a sin. It is not a choice for many of them. Why can´t you understand this?
