God would not tell anyone to kill (and in fact, has specifically said NOT to kill.)
The rulings of arbitration tribunals are binding in law, provided that both parties in the dispute agree to give it the power to rule on their case.

I haven't posted a comment in a good while, but stories like this one really make me sick to my stomach. God has already destroyed most of humanity in the past for just this type of behavior. These folks who were treated this way should run for public office. They are the types of leaders we need this day and time. I applaud you for standing up for what's right and god bless.
Sigh, your comments are predictable
It's the Old Testament that mandates the putting to death. Why do so many atheists choose to ignore the New Testament or the fact that it supersedes the Old?

I would have declined their request as soon as I found out they were christian. I don't think any children should be exposed to that kind of lifestyle...

I'm glad they can't foster based on their bigoted views.
What if I had faith in a belief system that said women are inferior to men and they should always remain silent in their presence? Or, that married women who wear make up are immoral because she is making herself attractive to the opposite sex. Should I be allowed to adopt? I hope not!
I have freedom to choose whatever belief system or god I want to follow.
However, I shoudn't have the right to force my beliefs onto others and treat them in accordance to how my religion tells me I should treat them.
What makes my religion any less important to that of Christianity?
(I'm not religious btw and I don't hold them views. My girlfriend would kill me )

I find it most strange that religious people from any of the biblical religions will soap-box the idea that God hates homosexuality. His experience with Adam and Eve should have prepared him for the grittier side of humanity.
You can't launch the idea on people that God made the world and everything in it and then criticize a part of his creation. If he alone made everything, he also created homosexuality.
Also why the couple in question could be somewhat dangerous for someone else's child is simply - to quote Loyola, "Give me a child till he is 8 and he is mine for life". Loyola was referring to our formative years which is also why religious schools are so keen to get their hands on young children.

Back to the unnatural sex thing...hmmmm
Why do men have a g spot in a place where the sun don't shine? Why did god put it there when he created us?
Did god mess up on that one?
The hatred of homosexuals is driven by religion. Why? Because religion is driven by fear and oppression.
The gays are an easy target as they will always be the minority.
