Homosexuals are not being discriminated against. That they don't go to heaven is the Bible, read it for yourself. People don't "have to" accept the homosexual lifestyle. Some of us out here find it very repulsive. That does not mean that some of us who do hate homosexuals.

A sincere question for Christians who support the video....
What is your opinion of how Jesus would feel about it?
I'm not setting you up to knock you down. I just feel that Jesus wouldn't approve. I'm not religious,
but I've read the bible, and I find that I agree with 99.99% of the gospel of Jesus. In his own words
Jesus was a brilliant humanist...
Neither a borrower or a lender be...
All things in moderation...
He who is without sin, cast the first stone.....etc
He is basically the author of the golden rule, and while I disagree he is a God, he was certainly
a profound human.
So....What would Jesus say about this?
Giving the habits of our society, this is very likely to happen.
Originally posted by halfoldmanMaybe he won't act on it, but if he does and commits a hate crime I think all those people applauding around him should share his sentence.
You really expect them to get angry? Really? Not every Creationist even remotely gets upset by this.

If thisis about homosexuality, it starts with the women, then gets into the men.
26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
51 Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division; 52 for henceforth in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three; 53 they will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against her mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law."

I don't know. I would hope (and think) that Jesus would preach tolerance.
Jesus never spoke directly about homosexuality (although, there are factions from both sides of the argument
which like to infer from his other teachings that homosexuality is natural (search Jesus and eunuchs)
or unnatural and against God's will (search Jesus and marriage).
It's a good question. I firmly believe that if you call yourself a Christian, that your behavior should be
grounded, and guided, by reacting to every challenge presented to you in the way that you think
Jesus would have reacted.
The WWJD bracelet (and idea) is the greatest thing that has happened to Christianity since
Jesus was born IMO.....

I've been to many churches of diff denominations. I studied religion in a Christian seminary. I've hung out with preachers and youth leaders. I've been on Robert Tilton's mailing list I know 1st hand what I'm up against. I know my enemy.
How many atheists have you run around with? If you came over, we might play some board or card games.

1st it should be proven that there is a heaven and that anyone goes to it in some form.

That's not the first step. First step is proving to people that spirits live outside the body's control.
