    You can be gay AND a Christian. I think what this man needs to do is reflect on who is really is. Being gay is not a sin, nothing to be ashamed about. Cheating on your wife, that’s a problem. Open and honest conversations needs to happen within that family, and this man needs to figure out who he is, and where he wants to be.

    This makes sense. The ban is just stupid. Gay people can be excellent leaders and role models for our youth. The ban has had a negative overall affect on the scouts, and I will be very glad to see it overturned.

    Pat:
    You are spot on. I can’t say it any better than you have.

    Athynz:
    I agree. Those who made threats should be persecuted to the full extent of the law. No opinion warrants violence or threats of violence. But it isn’t just the left that does this, there have been several cases where threats were made by right-wingers after a liberal said or did something they didn’t like. We just need to stop this mentality of hatred and threats and persecute those who make these threats.

    Grimas:
    They were not forced to offer the refund. That was their own choice. No government intrusion at all. The threats were wrong and should be investigated by the police.

    Blest:
    Do you seriously not understand what I mean by romantic love? The love you feel for your partner. I love my family, I love my friends, but that is not the same way I feel about my boyfriend. How we feel for each other goes far beyond sexual attraction, as I assume it is for you and your partner. Yes, gay people love their partners in the same way straight people do. There are many, many gay couples who have been together for decades.

    Way:
    God never said gay couples couldn’t marry, Jesus said nothing on gay marriage or homosexuality. Please take another look at the Bible. Male-female marriage is an acceptable form of marriage, but it is not the only one.

    Love:
    No one has asked anyone to lie about being a Christian. No one has told you to hide. All we ask is to be treated like anyone else.

    Grimes:
    The owner has every right not to offer a refund of that is not part of their policy. No one said they would be forced to. I’m not sure why you think they will lose profit.

    Way:
    And I fully support straight marriages. They are just as valid as straight ones. Jesus said nothing against gay marriage.

    Blest:
    I was referring to more romantic love, the kind that exists between spouses. I live my family, but that is a different love from what I feel for my boyfriend. As for sex, the gender you have sex with shouldn’t matter either.

    I fully support what he is saying. the businesses shouldn’t discriminate, and I have no love for them, but I also do not hate them. They certainly do not deserve the attention and hysteria that has surrounded them. And certainly not the threats.

    Yeah, don’t care if you’re disgusted, we aren’t hiding to make you feel more comfortable. The threats were way out of line, but the couple just didn’t want to do business with the owners who have vastly different beliefs and values.

    I see nothing wrong with the actions of the business owners nor the engaged couple.

    Yup, that’s what Jesus said. “If someone strikes your cheek, turn around and punch him in the nose.”

  • [4] May 20, 2015 at 10:22am

    Sad, but not surprising. So many of the most anti-gay have been revealed to actually be gay themselves. Treat all with love and respect, the gender one loves really doesn’t matter.

    2god:
    You may as well just admit that you don’t know and you have nothing to back up your claims. There is nothing in the Bible nor the articles you posted that shows why the rules on homosexuality still apply but the ones on shaving and clothing don’t. The closest thing was the second article saying that it was part of “natural law” because other cultures had once banned it too. There is nothing Biblical that says you can shave but can’t love your same-sex partner. This is nothing more than you trying vainly to justify your bigotry, just as those opposing interracial marriage, women’s rights, etc used the Bible in their arguments as well.

    2god:

    I reread all of acts 15. Not one verse saying that it was ok to shave it wear clothing of mixed fibers. Funny. You might also want to read what themotway cited on death sentences in the Bible. LOL

    And as for the women speaking in church part, yes I did see that you fully support not permitting women to speak at all in church. I hope everyone else here did too so they know how misogynistic you are.

    I’d point you to the rest of my points you have ignored, but you’d still ignore them. Oh well.

    2god:
    If I challenge you to reference something and you give me a “it’s somewhere in the back” then yes, that’s a vague reference. I asked for specifics. And you also completely ignored the majority of my post. Nicely done. I’ll show you where in the Bible it says homosexuality is ok when you show me where in the Bible it says wearing mixed fiber clothing is ok. Or shaving. Or women speaking in church. I think you get my point.

  • [1] May 18, 2015 at 4:49pm

    2god:
    I love how you continue to talk about what the Bible says and means, and only give vague reference. I asked specific questions and got mainly “because I said so” answers.

    A couple clarifying points for you:
    1- God did not write the Bible. Man did. The Bible is not the word of God.
    2- the exact same word used to condemn male-male sex in Leviticus is used to condemn eating shellfish not long after.
    3- if you are going to try to explain away the rules you don’t like, be aware that other people can and do explain away the gay passages as well.

  • [-1] May 18, 2015 at 3:44pm

    Kkuurus:
    The Old Testament also calls eating shellfish an abomination. It also permits slavery and forbids shaving. I assume you have no problem with those…

    2god:
    Again, God has no problem with it. The Bible has a couple obscure passages that seem to condemn it, but if you are going to reference those, you’d better be following the rest of the crazy rules in there.

    And your basis for knowing what lies apply to whom is what? Your own rationale? Where in the Bible does it say the rules against shaving and certain clothing do my apply? If they don’t apply, why do the gay ones still apply? Also, the one on women speaking in church comes from the New Testament.

  • May 18, 2015 at 2:55pm

    2god:
    Being gay isn’t a sin. And even though I am not a Christian, I do not hate the Bible, nor Christianity. I have never said nor implied anything of the sort. You might want to tone down the crazy a bit.

    Also, if we are supposed to cast out sin (what the Bible calls sin at least) do you decry all the others sins in there? Do you stand against women speaking in church, men shaving, and everyone wearing certain clothing. Those are all labeled as sins in the Bible too.

  • [-3] May 18, 2015 at 2:39pm

    2god:
    Ummmm…. I don’t hate the Bible. But where in the Bible does it advocate hate and discrimination?

  • [-7] May 18, 2015 at 1:24pm

    Ending hate and discrimination seems like a very Chritian thing to do and support. Why would the administrators have issue with this?
