So, I was browsing yahoo answers when I saw this question:

Why do gays celebrate christmas?
You know God and Jesus aren't too fond of you, to put it mildly, so why do you acknowledge the day? Straight people wouldn't celebrate a gay day, why don't you have Buttmas in January or February?


When I saw this question It was a little like this:




SO

HERE ARE MY TOP THREE REASONS WHY GAYS CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS

2. God doesn't hate gays!
If god hated gays, would he have put genes in the body that change brainshape that has been directly related to sexuality? Would he have made it that gay men produce phermones that are significantly more attractive to gay men? Would he have made almost every animal (Including us) Have some instances of homosexuality? Would he?




I respect your opinion but before making broad unbacked claims in a matter of fact, you should research the subject because you are utterly wrong. I Corinthians 6:9
"Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men [a] 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God."

Note that homosexuals are not singled out as "worse" than other sinners. All of it is lumped together. So you're QUITE wrong, however people's judgement/condemnation of homosexuals while they have they're own sins in the closet is hypocritical and completely anti-Christian doctrine as well, just like telling people that the Bible "isn't really against homosexuality... its all good."

I will admit that I don't understand homosexuals that attend church regularly but have NO desire to "not" be gay. That's like attending AA knowing you have no intention or desire to stop drinking. I'm looking at it like this, I know from experience that at least some of the sinners want to change; stop gambling, stealing etc.. is it common for homosexuals to wish they weren't gay? (for reasons not based on the public opinion) I've never met/heard of a homosexual saying "I want to change this because its not how I really want to be."


Sorry for double post, but I realized I missed somthing.

If god hates gays and it is "Sexual immoral" Than how come you never combated this:


If god hated gays, would he have put genes in the body that change brainshape that has been directly related to sexuality? Would he have made it that gay men produce phermones that are significantly more attractive to gay men? Would he have made almost every animal (Including us) Have some instances of homosexuality? Would he?

Just lol at all this.


read the story of Lot's people and WHY did God destroy them.


And about the "genes" - you may have "strange" feelings about a man, but that doesn't mean you have to live them out (you do not HAVE to have sex with him).

And again: Read Lot, then tell me God "loves" gays.

One thing I dont understand about the anti-gay religous people, is this question:

If screwing a man is the sin, than how come you freak the **** out when we kiss?

I do not react at all. And I do not freak out. I just can't say I wish to see it.

In fact, being religious is being humble and MODEST - so, we should not WATCH anyone when they kiss. What a husband and a wife do, is their intimate, private time, which they share with themselves - it should not be done in public - thus, no way for us to watch it.

That's a funny way to determine your god's love. The old testament tells of wrath against anybody who was not a Jewish male. He ordered genocide after genocide, encouraged infanticide, was a proponent to slavery, and thought that rape was a pretty swell way to propose to a lady.

In light of all that, I think cherry picking moves from habitual to downright moronic.

Of course not. I have been married for 15 years now. Never have done that, and never will.
I may kiss her on the cheek - but then again, that I do with my aunts and relatives too, lol. But NOT on the mouth.

Most straight people kiss in public all the time...

Than they yell at US for flaunting our sexuality *facepalm*

I don't think most people who own a Christmas tree, put up their decorations for the 25th, and go mad crazy buying pressies for family and friends care about religion at all. I don't know anybody like that.
The most religious thing I ever did at Christmas was sing carols at school.

Ah-men, ah-men, aah-aah-aah-aah mennnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!

Great memories. Got 20p for the collection box and we'd change that and stick a penny in, spend the rest on sweets.

Christmas is about presents and having a posh dinner once a year. It cheers you up, gives everyone something to look forward to in the middle of winter (ooh, how pagan). If you're religious, no offence intended.

As for gay people, they can do that too, can't they? And people with one leg. And folk who knit and like jigsaws.

You said to read about Lot which is in Genesis. Are you talking about a different man named "Lot" who isn't from the bible?

And [We had sent] Lot when he said to his people, "Do you commit such immorality as no one has preceded you with from among the worlds?

Indeed, you approach men with desire, instead of women. Rather, you are a transgressing people."

But the answer of his people was only that they said, "Evict them from your city! Indeed, they are men who keep themselves pure." Qur'an, 7:80-82

The point, which many seem to not understand, is when one does whatever his impulses tell him to.
You may have an impulse to steal something, or kill someone - but you are not accountable for those impulses, unless you ACT upon them.

So, you may have a desire for men, but that doesn't mean you have to submit your will to your desire. You should only submit your will to God.


Have you seen the one who takes as his god his own desire? - Qur'an, 25:43

... Or you may even have the impulse to make up a bunch of crap about a prejudiced god who makes people biologically against his wishes and then craps all over them in books that may or may not have something to do with any god whatsoever.

But, as science shows, it is not conclusive that the biological cause is the only or the main one for homosexuality - there are many other causes, or an intermix of them, from environmental to social, etc.

The premise stays: Just because God gave you exceptional beauty, that doesn't mean you have to be immoral and pose naked for Magazines, or star in porn movies.

What you do with your desires is that which defines a believer and a non believer. And do not forget that there is the Devil, who is CONSTANTLY fighting humans and tempting them to renounce God - so even those "homesexual" feelings might not be so strong as you think - but they are enlarged and encouraged by the devil - who will try to seduce you to do something against God - this is valid for heterosexuals too, don't get me wrong.

It is the devil who pushes men to cheat on their wives. He does not FORCE them, he merely enhances their desires - and whether you sucumb to your dosires or not, defines whether you take them (the desires) as your God or not.
Because at the end, God or Lord, does not mean anything else, but the entity to whom you submit your will.

The atheists, in this context, are not really Atheists, they are Theists - because they take themselves as their God.

yes, there is not a "Your gay and your not" gene, but there IS several traits and genes that GREATLY influence sexuality.

Did you know that while a straight males brain is asymetrical, and a straight womans brain is symetrical; a gay males brain is symetrical and a lesbians brain is asymetrical. Thats not a choice.

Or what about the study where sweat samples where taken from men and than given to straight men and gay men to sniff. The study showed that gay men found the gay men sweat more attractive/less repulsive than the sweat from straight men. Thats not a choice.

Or what about the FACT that a womans womb sometimes recognizes the male baby as an intruder and tries to kill it with estrogen. Or that birth order is greatly linked to sexuality, and that it would make sense that the more babies sombody has, the greater their skill at killing them with estrogen is. Thats not a choice.

It is so very nice and comforting to know that you can interpret what God hates.


That's what the bible is for.




What does God think when a new Daddy falls asleep snuggling his tiny newborn son, in the rocking chair?


No comment...



Does he also hate when females sleep with females?


Yep and all forms of sexual immorality.



What does God have to say about those guys who spend all their free time on the "barely legal" web sites?


He thinks there sinful and hates them.



I have to wonder because so many of the people I have run into who make a lot of noise about what God loves and hates tend to frequent strip clubs, girl-girl and barely legal stuff.


Jesus called those people hypocrites.
