@ ToneDeaf ...... Whoops. Jesus did not write Galatians.

How does homosexuality even compare to eating your young? Also, yes, humans do that. Just not "civilized" humans. Humans who pretend to be superior in that they have invented more covert means of competetive survival. Just because we wear a mask doesn't mean we're not still animals. We have the audacity to fight it, then the shame to hide it. But we haven't eliminated it. There is nothing wrong with being animals.

So why is it you feel the need to judge others for their perceptions and interpretation and then turn around and tell them not to judge when your interpretation may clearly be different than theirs?
Feeling insecure? Like you're going to be judged?
Why, again, did you post this topic?
The Bible's a potential story of creation, and if you've read it (which I really get the distinct feeling you haven't) - if you have read it - you'd understand the great majority of the book is about dominational tactics, domination through warfare, the creation of classes and professions, the spreading of disease and pestulance, and the combating of this through medicinal practices.
It establishes a society. And God's - at least for the Old Testament - is similar to what we would refer to as 'Swarm technology' in the advanced research for robotics area - something Michael Crichton wrote about in the book 'Prey'.
Now let me ask you this. Where, in your interpretation, do you find God's love _at_all_ in the Old Testament? I am curious. He often comes across as a spoiled child issuing commands through a computer program or as a computer program, and not some respectable deity who you'd want to follow in their footsteps because of the tantrums and subsequent death and destruction should you not abide by his commands. Reminded me of Battlestar Galactica at times. "By your command"

Because apparently, Jesus agrees that homosexuals will burn in hell. Let's not ignore that part of his "true message".
