Incredible ! They do a thing that God hate, but they are worshipping Him.


I've read one day that if you walk on a landmine, there will have a big KABOOOM ! Being homo and worshipping God is the same. They are walking on a landmine, and one day, these landmine will explodes to their faces !

I bet they will be looking surprise !

Does god say anything in the bible about homo's?

No...hrmmmm....

So why is it wrong to religous people, considering god never said it was?

Personally...I think it's disgusting... With men+men...I love lesbian's though

This artical is what I call the definition of stupidity.

"Knowing what you are doing is wrong and going and doing it anyway." It is a good definition considering the story this has been takeing place in my area for at least 10 years.

Ok, well im new to this site, and i just had to get in on this argument. For one thing it was mentioned that homos are not metioned in the bible. Well they are, but not as "homos." Leviticus 18:22 is an example of this. The Lord was talking to Moses when he said "You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination." As for God not loving everyone, He does love everyone. He may detest the act, but He has an unconditional love for everyone. God doesn't like what we do, but He loves us unconditionaly. Homosexuality is an act, so is satanism, paganism, witchary. If you would like some more verses on the act of homosexuality let me know. But God loves everyone and the people in the article may practice homosexuality and be in love. Good for them, more power to 'em. God loves them anyways, and they should be allowed to worship him. Because your sins are forgiven through Jesus Christ (He is the Lord and Savior), but I won't go into all that at the time. Hope this clears any questions up or argument or what not. Peace.

...so basically,
He hates the sin, not the sinner.

i'm sorry but if a god like that exists i can't respect him - what prejudicial swine.

I do however think that if you follow a religion that condems something you shouldn't practice it, because you are commiting an act you believe to be wrong.

oh- and well said Kim

I do not understand how someone could honestly believe and follow a faith if the faith they had chosen did condem their lifestyle. In fact it would seem impossible to me, like a double negative or something. So I have to think that either these people just have no clue of what's happening or that in their opinion God doesn't hate or think ill of them because of who they are.

Personally, I can't see how or why God as the creator would create a human being that is homosexual and destined to be damned forever. I mean even if a Homosexual resisted his natural instinct his whole life, he would still be Gay when he died and still be damned would he not? That doesn't make any sense?

OK then if the big H is such a sin and they're all bound for hell I expect all you people who've indulged in pre-marital sex, adultery and oral sex to join the line as these were all considered equally serious transgressions, oh and if you use contraception that's pretty bad to as the original idea was to be fruitful, every sperm is sacred don't you know. The bible contains a lot of archaic laws that were simply 'of there time' and pertinent to a tribal grouping wandering around the desert and have absolutely no relevence to our more modern supposedly enlightened society. Of course heterosexual christians manage to play down these equally serious sins these days while continuing to decry gay peoples activities as against God because it absolutely suits them to. Nothing like being in the majority to get a fair hearing. I suspect, if this God of the Israelites does exist, come judgement day there's going to be a lot of surprised straights following there gay brothers down to the pit.

I believe that the religions of the world today have all, in some way, been corrupted.
Lets say someone is doing a new translation of the Bible. He sees something in it that he doesn't like. He changes/adds/removes what he wants. The person sells this new translation to newly converted people. They don't know it has been corrupted by this person and so they believe that it is truly the word of God. (This is a possibility of what could have happened in earlier times.)
I think this theory is a plausible theory because once you answer these questions, the answer is obvious.
1. Who wrote the Bible? (people)
2. Are all people 100% happy with the way other people think and feel about different aspects of life? (no)
3. Is there a more effective way to change the way people think than to do what the hypotheticall situation above states? (If there are I can't name them.)

So if someone at one time saw gay and lesbian relationships and dissaproved of them couldn't he or anyone else that was doing a translation of the Bible have altered/added something to make it so that it seems that God hates gays/lesbians/witches/seers.

I also think that either deliberate or even unknowingly the bibles or religious writtings have been altered throughout the ages and translations. The deliberate changes could go just as you said. But also just the translations from almost if not all older languages to new ones have some words and/or phrases that don't translate straight over. In fact even today between modern language you have certain cases where a single word in one language has many meanings in another. For a simple example the meaning of Tao translated into english is "The Way" or "Devine Path" but there isn't any solid translation. The meaning has to be translated as well as the actual word itself. So if you consider that all scriptures are usually based off of older scriptures, you have to allow for some uncontrolable amount of error or change in meaning.

I would also add to your list:
4. Using words and language will never equal the actual experience itself and is therefore not 100% complete.
5. To err is human. Even the first scriptures then are still MAN's version of the Word of God, which would have some bit of error or degree of interpretation failure.

The simple fact that even today there is still so many ways of interpretation, even within the same faith, is a sign that it may not be the most reliable way to sum up God, our Creation, Life, Existence, Reality, Universal Law, etc...

I don't think the "church" is qualified to scrutinize people for their life style...
