I don't need the holy spirit to explain this to me - just you.

Why does god set such conditions on what we get up to in the sack? Is sex disgusting to him? Or just certain acts? And does it have to be soley for procreation? Where is the line drawn? For example, what if my penis touches someone anus but it is unintentional? Am I hellbound if that happens?

There is no need for (ETA: nevermind I see the mods removed it)


I know other christians who say their religion teaches compassion, and understanding. Why does yours not?

How does someones sexual orientation hurt you personally, in any way?

Hi IAMIAM, I really enjoyed your posts.

For more on S&M, polygamy, concubinage (essentially female sex slaves) and many other sexual issues in the Bible I recommend The Uncensored Bible: The bawdy and naughty bits of the Good Book by John Kaltner, Steven L. McKenzie and Joel Kilpatrick (Harper Collins: 2008).

Just some wider thoughts on the discussion:

Both Old Testament and Christianity were very patriarchal societies. In the Old Testament women could be sold and enslaved, and a man had a right to as many wives and concubines as he liked.
The real sin of a man lying with a man as with a woman was that he "lowered" another man to the position of a woman.
In Christianity women quickly lost whatever status they achieved under Jesus, and they were told to be in silence and not usurp authority over a man (1 Timothy 2:12).
But nowadays in societies not run on fundamentalist literalism, women's status is no longer that of a virtual slave or lust provoking temptress. Woman are no longer put in the dunking stool for being verbose, and since Queen Victoria they can also receive painkillers in childbirth (which was once seen as a violation of Genesis 3:16).
Heck they can even vote, and in some churches preach from the pulpit, get divorced and remarry, and girls no longer have to marry their rapist (Deut 22:28). None of these things were really commanded by Jesus, and came with changes in broader culture.
It is no accident that the gay liberation followed the women's liberation, and openly modern gay culture is really still in it's infancy.

A lot of this religious focus on homosexuality (which is ill defined as a sex act) really seems like a diversion - the last grasp at some form of "Biblical" purity.

And of course it doesn't take long before the "loving" religious platitudes turn into accusations that gays are largely into S&M, cruelly hunting people, and practice pedophilia. And that from religious institutions that are rife with masochistic motifs, and accusations of scandal and pedophilia.
It's really about creating the "other" to divert from something one wants to deny from oneself.
If I ever hear of somebody hunting people or practicing pedophilia in my gay scene, I will certainly turn them into the authorities.
I hope religious people do the same in their churches.

I just hope everybody also appreciates the rights they have today, and the Christian treatment of women at times made fundamentalist Islam seem positively enlightened.
Not that any of this would matter to the wider context of Michael Rood (from the OP clip), since to him most of Christianity is equally doomed along with the homosexuals, unless they join his Messianic teachings.
He doesn't speak much on gender, but the restrictions on ultra-orthodox religious Jewish women in Israel should give us some idea.
In that case we'd need a gender segregated ATS!

Well, they'd rather have a Rood than a Michelangelo or Da Vinci in their ranks, it seems.
Of course, fortunately they do not represent all Christians.

do you really think, that a being who was supposed to created everything, would not think about love? homosexuals just love, they even love more than regular people...

According to hardcore Christians, Your hellbound if, while wiping your but and your finger breaks through the paper and accidentally slips in..!!

I bekieve masturbation is also a sin and that means everyone on earth "and I mean everyone, including the OP and all the other hardcore God-squad", here on this thread, "is going to hell", because I cannot believe thee is even one, who has never done it atleast a few times..


Your going to hell son..!!!

Ahh see this is where I get confused by your crappy religion..

You say that god and Jesus are all forgiving and all loving and all "whatever"..

Do they themselves not respect the beliefs of other people. "if you don't follow my way, you must die"..!! Thats how it comes off to me.. Not all that different from Islam really.

REally.. A kind loving god will kill just to prove a point, with no regard for that life.. A god that dose not value life is not a god I will ever follow.

What about all the innocents on the earth..? Lions and Tigers, and Monkeys, and Bunnies are all living creatures and totally innocent, yet god would end them because of a few naughty humans..!?! Dosen't sound like a loving god to me at all..!!

I happen to have a cousin who is homosexual.
He spent several years in the US armed forces, defending your right to free speech. (those of you in the US)

Ironic how you use that freedom to bash him, it morally wrong to bash him, but you can thank him that it is your legal right.

Please take the time out to watch the above videos as it will explain this matter more clearly.

Why don't you use your words to explain rather than allow youtube to do it for you?

It doesn't take much to think for yourself, you just have to want to.

Why would I want to watch those videos when YOU are not able to make one convincing argument against acceptance of homosexuality? Tell me why are you personally bothered (please don't quote the bible) by that sexual orientation?

What a sad little world.



hmmm..and this is exactly the type of mentality that adults who like having sex with very young children are using to condone their actions..

Or to have sex with animals.. or orgies with all of them included together..

yes.. the very same arguments ..are being used for that behavior as well.



Yet another religious nutjob equating sex with non-consenting children and animals with the practise of two CONSENTING adults loving each other. I had you pegged as nothing but a fool before, going by your previous posts but now I see you're disgusting and hateful with it. May your magic sky spirit have mercy on your foul soul.

PharohGnosis...can I just say, after a long day at work I come home and the videos you posted are exactly the kind of thing I need to cheer me up and remind me how ridiculous many of the people in the world are. Thank you


Could a Christian please explain this to me: If God created everyone, why would he create gay people if he thought it was a sin? I don't want verses or scripture quoted, just a simple answer will suffice.

Couldn't agree more...equating consensual sex with paedophilia or beastiality is disgusting, narrow-minded and offensive.

Since you're assuming anybody your expecting a reply from is going to be a hypocrite, i'm not going to answer any of your questions. I am deeply offended, not because i'm not a hypocrite because I totally am. I was gonna go to work but then I got...well you know the rest.

Hahaha, smite...I love that word.

Nice try, Bonzo. Whether or not you were referred to as a hypocrite (and grey580 named no names), I would like to see you answer all of those questions seeing as how you've set yourself up a some sort of crusader against homosexuality. Homosexuality is not the only thing railed against in the bible but your lot seemed to be fixated on it. But whatever, since you know oh-so-much and have decided to pontificate to others, I would like to see you answer those questions honestly. If you can't, then you can be dismissed as merely another bigot hiding behind an ancient book to justify your nonsense.

The Way of the Master move their focus from semi-Christian "soft targets" and trans-sexuals to Israel.

The feelings on their "crusade" is made quite clear, and unlike their previous clips, here they are actually spat on.

So much for a Torah/Christian mixture.

Absolutely. Either these chumps can't see how repulsive and offensive they are, or they revel in it.

It's all whooey. Homosexuals and Lesbians were created by ancient Romans as a means of protecting theirselves if an enemy should happen to make it past the interior elite guards. Their reasoning was who could kill such a wonderful little child.

So if god is judging humans then perhaps god needs judged.

If god created all and in order to create all one needs to first be created in order to create who created god? God could not have been able to create all without first being created. One cannot create without first being created.

So how was god created?

Many lives have been destroyed because of the assumption of god wanting to person to be this way or that way and it is time to put stop to the tyranny.
