To those who object to homosexual behavior due to their religious beliefs (mainly Christians as I've seen you in the religious threads), I would
remind you that Jesus gave you only two commandments:
29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: 30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy
God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. 31 And the second is
like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
Mark 12; verses 29-31
I would also add:
37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven
Luke 6: 37
To those who wish to legislate us away, remember that this country was founded on the rights and freedoms of the individual, not only that of the
majority. Do you remember these words?
1. Loving my neighbor does not mean I have to have sex with him, or that I have to accept his lifestyle choices. I can rebuke a person for their
openly flaunting their gayness, yet still love him as myself.
You confuse hypocritical sentimentality with Love.
2. I agree we are not to judge in the judicial legal sense where our judgement leads to condemning and punishing people. This is the kind of judging
However, "judging" in the sense of going through a process of evaluation is completely acceptable and prudent. This is not the kind of judging Jesus
3. We don't condemn people. God himself does that. However, we can condemn the activity which violates our consciences, and indeed we are encouraged
to do that in scripture.
4. Each individual has rights, most intelligent people would not argue against that. You have the same rights as me, no more and no less. You get no
special minority status for your lifestyle choice, because you are not a race or an ethnic group. You are just a person who has a fetish like many
other people who have any number of different fetishes.
