"...But claiming that God created us to be gay is totally insane. If he did, the human race wouldn't have gotten very far would it?"
"....God created us to be gay....etc"
You (and all us heathens out here) will have a really interesting time coming, if any of your fellow christians with inverse doctrines read this and
decide to comment on it.
'God' DID create everything, didn't he? Including the individual, commonly and wrongly called the devil (a conglomorate of several different
entities), who is supposed to 'test' us. Testing ofcourse only possible, if mankind has 'free will'. The whole unfortunate incident in Eden
Chronologically uncertain and maybe or maybe not, this 'devil' is a fallen/not-fallen angel or a bureaucrate in the heavenly administration and has
maybe or maybe not 'free will' also, and in case of non-free will he is doing the will of your alleged 'god' in his testings (including Job, where
thousands of innocents died from a 'bet'). In which case 'god' created gays, who are not 'tempted' to become homosexuals by a free-willed devil, but
by 'god' using a zombie-devil.
But darn it and ooops, mankind was originally tested BEFORE it got 'free will'. But as I wrote in my recent post, some people consider logic and
causality as unnecessary hindrances on the way to their highly individualized 'truths'.
And then we have the calvinist puritans, with their total predestination model, where there IS no 'free will' and where 'God' DID create homosexuals
(for mysterious reasons of his own), so he could condemn them later (for mysterious reasons of his own).
I'm completely aware, that I sound confused in the above, but what I'm actually doing is only to present a few selfcontradictory options in a confused

I, Bogomil the querulous, have met quite a few intelligent homosexuals, who have added to mankind's 'getting far', whereas I also have met many
homophobes and religious fanatics who have stuck with values two thousand years old. People so stuck in brainwashed attitudes, that not even crowbars
and reconditioning will be of any help.
So what DO you mean with 'getting far'? Adhering to your intolerance and insanely violent religion?
