Y'know what bugs me about this whole gay rights issue for the last few years? It seems they want to ram their homosexuality down our throats. I just recently started watching Game of Thrones and there's a lot of homosexuality, call me squeamish, call me whatever, but I don't care to watch guys making out.
So what does that make me? A homophobe? These gay rights issues are getting beyond ridiculous. Does it mean if I don't want to watch gay porn, it makes me a homophobe too? Going to force that on us as well? Jesus H Christ. Watching Entertainment tonight last night and Neil Patrick (whatever his name is, Doogie Howser) is making out and making gay sexual references regarding straight male actors and everyone's having a 'gay ole laugh' about it. They're laughing! Like it's ok?? If any gay man on tv was making sexual references about me without my consent, they would get slammed with a lawsuit, or a punch in the mouth.
Listen, I don't care what sexual preference you have. Just keep your mouth shut about it, we don't care. And don't expect us to put up with what we deem disgusting. This has gone too far already.
Well, maybe there are homosexuals who like watching homosexuals making out on HBO. Did you ever think about that?
And what's a straight male doing watching Entertainment Tonight, anyway? Everyone knows that's a chick's show. My husband wouldn't be caught dead watching that show.

This is my point. Because homosexuality is supposed to be accepted now, it means they can throw gay sex on tv and us straight people are supposed to just shut up and take it like a man. ( pardon all the innuendo)

Did I say "Kill them don't think twice about it"? don't put me into quotes that i never made.
It says they/we are deserving of death. Are you interpreting that is we are deserving to live? Just checking as my fellow "christians" seem to interpret things in a real glossy way that wipes away the shame and murderous insanity put down in the fallible written by man bible.
The bible is NOT the entire word of god, it is written by men, and all men are infallible, what you have quoted tells me that the gay couple deserve death. as do I for supporting them.
Please tell me what deserving of death means? other than deserving of death.....

In the Bible the OT laws do command people to stone people to death for various transgressions.
Chapters 18 and 20 of Leviticus, which form part of the Holiness code and list prohibited forms of intercourse, contain the following verses:
-"Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination."
-"If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."
The two verses have historically been interpreted by Jews and Christians as clear blanket prohibitions against homosexual acts. More recent interpretations focus on its context as part of the Holiness Code, a code of purity meant to distinguish the behavior of Israelites from the Canaanites.
Among evangelical Christians, there is debate about how much of this passage can be applicable today since the Levitical priesthood and animal sacrifice ended in AD 70, with the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans. Many in these groups see references to sexuality therein and as being reiterated for emphasis elsewhere in the Bible; for example, in the Epistle to the Romans. Orthodox Jews continue many of the practices, but they generally regard precepts not in current practice as being in only temporary abeyance until a Third Temple can be rebuilt and they can be restored.
