That is incredible. Are you saying ''let the sinners sin, we know who they are, it is obvious''?

That is the most ''to hell with the gays'' interpretation ever.

I like that.

a reply to: Generation9Not at all, what I suggest would be to get God back into our knowledge but as you can tell by most reactions to the thread many don't believe and would refuse to believe or have God in their knowledge.

Your post describes the error that many make with scriptures, the misapplication of commandments and laws meant only for Israel. Never once are any of these that are quoted in your graphic meant to be forced on the Gentiles today or the Body of Christ, and no one other than Israel was ever meant to live by them unless they wanted to live in the promised land of the Jews.

Some of the quoted verse also only applied to people before the Nation of Israel was brought out of Egypt.

So sorry but many people including Christians do not know how to study (2 Timothy2:15) the Bible let alone know which is the promised preserved (Ps 12:6.7) translation.

So the President said that two wrongs make a right?

So it's okay to trample someone's religious liberty to favor another right? Pretty hypocritical. Why can't we be adults and find a way that no one's rights get trampled?

God-given

Does that include the tsunamis, earthquakes, child snuff porn, cannibal fetishism and pathological money junkies...?

Religion is no excuse to deny rights to others.

Christians seem so quick to defend their "right" to enforce their beliefs on everyone else, while refusing to realize that not everyone shares nor wants to share their beliefs. At this point, someone is reading this thinking, "but America is a Christian country!!" I'll respond in advance by saying: No. It isn't. I'm not here to argue the origin of the country. Was it founded to be a Christian nation? That's irrelevant right now. What is important is that given similar situations, Christians do not approve of anyone encroaching on their beliefs. Take for example the recent (albeit justified) paranoia about the Muslims (another religion who likes to think that no other belief systems are valid, therefore being non-existent) imposing Sharia law in the USA. This is the United States. It is written in our constitution that we have the freedom of religion, which in turn can mean freedom from religion.

Regardless upon which lofty pedestal you place your beliefs (or lack thereof), other people have adorned their own pedestals with their own beliefs that may or may not match your own. They will not bend to your will, as they have a will of their own.
