    The Boy Scouts will be far better off having gay leaders who care about ALL scouts, rather than hateful people like some of you.

    My mistake. Typo. 1 Timothy 2:12. “I do not permit women to teach men or have authority over them.”

    And Corinthians says “Women should remain silent in churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission.”

    Both of those verses seem pretty cut and dry. If you want to try and say that context changes the meaning, be aware that context is important for that timothy verse as well. Paul was talking about sexual immorality. Committed gay couples were not around back then, he was only really condemning adultery.

    This was the whole point of the pastors sermon. You can’t condemn gays because of one Bible verse, while ignoring the verses right by it condemning things you do everyday. That is the definition of hypocrisy.

    Please reread my last response to you.

    LOL. Ok, I’ll take your advice and revuke your evil actions based on Levitical law then. Shame on you for wearing clothing of mixed fibers. Shame on you for eating shellfish. Both of those are labeled as just as sinful as being gay in Leviticus.

    You may also want to reread your Bible. Check out 2 Timothy 2:12 and 1 Corinthians 14:34. These verses seem pretty clear in their rules. Those are just as sinful as being gay is. Moreso actually as these verses are more clear than the New Testament one on homosexuality.

    Flea:
    I’m glad you realize that you can’t really use Old Testament laws today, so the ones about homosexuality also don’t hold water from the Old Testament. That leaves at best one pretty ambiguous verse from Paul (not Jesus). Setting aside the context, translation and meaning of this verse, you have also ignored my initial point. Paul also forbids women from speaking in church (just speaking, not being a pastor) and also holding any position of authority (not just in the church). So unless you condemn female teachers and politicians, and scold any women who greets you in church, you should listen to this pastors sermon again.

    Flea:
    Indulging and excusing? You mean like how we indulge and excuse women who dare to speak in church? How exactly is that different?

    Shsm:
    Please read my first post again. Or just read it once, I don’t think you actually did.

    Amen Pastor!

    Usually the Leviticus verse is the one that gets cited to me. But if you want to cite Romans, then you must also have a problem with women speaking in church or holding any position of authority. Being gay is no more a sin than any of these things. It seems to me that you, and many others should really listen to this sermon and take it to heart.

    I have been and will continue to try and help people recognize their delusions, and bring them to the truth. So I will tell you here, you are being delusional. There is nothing wrong with transgender people. They are not sick, they are not sinning, they are human beings and deserve to be treated as such.

    Companion:
    Yes, and trans people are either make or female. The were born the same gender they express. They were just born with different genitals. Sex is different from gender remember. There is nothing unBiblical about transgender people, and certainly nothing unAmerican. If you think they are weird, that’s fine, they may think you’re weird too. Just treat everyone with the same respect you would want them to treat you with.

    I hope you read my response to Eiloi too so you can understand.

    You are of course welcome to your own opinions, and are of course free to vocalize them as loudly as you wish. Just don’t pretend that changes the facts, or assume that others won’t correct you.

    Caitlyn Jenner is a woman, and has always been a woman, even if she didn’t tell people until recently. You may think it is unnatural for her to be who she is and look like she does, but technically, wearing glasses or using technology isn’t natural either. But I don’t see you getting all bent out of shape over that. Again, you seem to be basing your opinions only on Caitlyn or perhaps the propaganda you have heard from other ultra-right people. I personally know several trans people. I’m sure you have met several trans people yourself if you were telling the truth on your background, you just had no idea they were trans.

    First, it is a disease, it is who they are. Gender, like sexual orientation, like skin color is not something you can choose or change. It is certainly not mutilation, as you put. everyone changes their physical appearance, going to the gym, shaving, hairstyles, tattoos, pierced ears, etc. Trans people are similarly making changes so the appear how they wish to appear, how they feel.
    For your bigot comments, perhaps just look up the term in the dictionary. It may help you understand.
    Neither of those verses really have anything to do with trans individuals, as they ARE male and female. They were born male and female, just with different parts. Although you want to be careful citing Old Teatament verses, as I’m sure you ignore the ones about not shaving, or wearing certain clothing yourself…

    Eiloi:
    You again assume that being transgender is a sin. It is not. There is nothing to back this up. To be sure, transgender people sin and fall short like anyone else. I am glad you have a happy and fulfilled life, but so do many transgender people. Caitlyn Jenner has children of her own, and seems happy with life.
    I am not sure if you are implying that you are transgender, and chose not to transition or not. But if you do not feel the opposite gender of your genitals, you are not. I don’t think this is something you (or I) can properly understand if we haven’t experiences it. but talking with trans people, I have learned that this is a part of them, and can’t change.

    Variance:
    Clearly you don’t know many (if any) trans people. I know several personally, and most of them I did not know until they told me. Some I knew before they transitioned, and they did not end up looking anything like you describe. I’d imagine if you saw a transgender person, you would have no idea, and they would likely not even want to tell you. You base your opinions off of what you may have seen on news or the Internet which is probably pure scare tactics and propaganda.
    You also know that Caitlyn is absolutely a woman, and you would have not known about her past if you hadn’t known about her before.
    And as for what is in between anyone’s legs, that is none of your business, and does not change a person’s gender anyway.

    Eiloi:
    I wouldn’t say that transgender individuals are broken. They just face challenges. If God didn’t create broken people though, wouldn’t no one be born with disease? Or malformity? You also seem to think that transgender individuals aren’t in touch with Jesus. Trans people can be just as devout Christians as anyone else, and plenty make Jesus a big part of their lives.

    You assume it would be someone who looks and acts like a man who would be using the woman’s restroom. In reality, the vast majority of transgender individuals blend in, and you would never even know they were born the opposite sex. So what you would see was a woman using the women’s restroom. Imagine if transgender individuals used the restroom of their birth sex, and a man walked into the women’s restroom…

  • [-8] July 24, 2015 at 11:57am

    It’s only a miserable existence if you make life miserable for them. If you treat them with respect, treat them like anyone else, they will enjoy life like anyone else.

    Biological sex is what is in between your legs, gender is in your mind. If someone is transgender, they were born with the two not aligning. But God made them that way, and using the wrong pronoun will not change who they are.

    The Bible also says absolutely nothing on this, so I have no idea why anyone would try to justify poor treatment of their trans brothers and sisters based on their faith or the Bible.

    Stop:
    If a loving gay couple getting married destroys your marriage, it couldn’t have been very strong to begin with.

  • [-2] July 23, 2015 at 11:32am

    *used to it. Damn autocorrect.

  • [-1] July 23, 2015 at 11:05am

    Technically he is right. If congress passed a new law banning gay marriage, and the president signed it, it would become law. And then the Supreme Court could rule it unconstitutional if it was challenged. But there is no way a law like that would pass. Not a chance in hell. Marriage equality is here to stay, you might as well get send to it

    Ranger:
    Again, Google “gay genetics” and you will find several articles about peer-reviewed scientific studies that show the genetic link to sexual orientation. Please take a look.

    Teresa:
    You give no facts here not anything to respond to. Feel free to read back through my comments to find the facts.
