I only convey the message taught by my sunday school teacher. Jesus loves all men and women, and would never strive to keep anyone out of a church.

If you feel the need to have a bestiality parade, go for it.

Jesus never mentions homosexuality, but says to keep the moral laws of the old testament true, meaning homosexuality would be wrong, but polygamy and marrying the woman you rape are also moral laws, so they must also be true if homosexuality is wrong.
And this is the reason the youth don’t follow the bible, it is a logical twisted fallacy.

and if your sons turn out to be gay, how will you treat them? will you shame them, or will you accept and love them?

I’m atheist. Quoting the bible means absolutely zero to me.

More so by the teachings of jesus, to love my fellow man. Sorry you all disagree with jesus.
I didn't say it, take it up with God. Oh, thats right you don't know Him or His word.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools , 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator , who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another ; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet . 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient ; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers.
You might want to counter with the actual words of Jesus, not Paul. Just sayin'.

@higher Be honest. If your parents, spouse, children, friends, end up in hell, could you EVER be happy in heaven? If the answer is no, then heaven can not logically exist.

If being gay was a choice, why would anyone choose it? Obviously people are born this way. God “knew them” before they were born, he could have stopped it. Logical conclusion: God likes gays.
February 27, 2014 at 9:45am
I hope for their sake your children are not homosexual. Imagine being born homosexual, and having a father like you who they know would stop loving them if they expressed who they really are, and are then condemned to live a life of unhappiness until you pass away. You are the type of father who’s sons kill themselves because they are meant to feel ashamed because of some beleifs you have. Shame on you, and again for their sake, I hope they are straight. Heaven forbid you love your children for who they are.

There are over 2000 rights that come with marriage. Can you do all this without being married? Of course. Can anyone out of the upper financial class afford to do this, yes. Are there still some rights that you CAN NOT put on paper? Yes, such as hospital visitations. States have laws that distinguish between family members and powers of attorney, so marriage is the only solution.
February 27, 2014 at 9:41am
@Twin. For you this is true, however for a growing number of Americans who do not beleive in god, the government is the highest law of the land.
February 27, 2014 at 9:40am
Either way though you are arguing semantics. either A we grant marriages to opposite and same sex couples, B we grant “unions” to opposite and same sex couples = same thing.
But we can not do, C- Grand marriages to opposite couples and “unions” to same sex couples, because this is an example of separate but equal.
We can not also do D-grant marriage to persons of opposite sex, while discriminating, based on sex of contractants, deny marriage licenses to same sex marriages.
So in conclusion, the only logical and lawful thing to do, is to either A, allow same sex marriages, or B, change the legal title of marriage to “union”. But really, think of all the paper work, cost of changing, the outrage that “my marriage is now a union”?!?! this would cause. The proper course of action is to allow same sex marriage and call it marriage.
February 27, 2014 at 9:27am
Oh please, god sanctioned marriages in the bible include polygamy, and marrying the woman you rape.
February 27, 2014 at 9:25am
It still does, haven’t you ever been to a pride parade?
February 27, 2014 at 9:25am
Except jesus never said anything about homosexuality.
"Except jesus never said anything about homosexuality."
I dont know - i was not there
Jesus didn't talk about strapping a baby into a car seat either. Maybe, just maybe Jesus expects us to have just a little common sense and think for ourselves what makes sense.
Jesus said marriage is man plus woman. So no gay marriage as for homosexuality he didn't change from the OT law. Romans and Corinthians plainly states homosexuality is a horrible thing. You're fooling yourself if you can't see this.
He was very clear about what he wanted his followers to do. Which is give everything they own to the poor and follow him. He said that like 4 or 5 times....yet there are tons of christians here using a computer railing against something he didn't mention once. Hiiiiillllaaaariiiious.
Why oh why could so many people be turning from this religion? It just doesn't make any sense...
I love the way you as an unbeliever are so full of advice on what and how Christians should act. Take your own advice for once perhaps?
He did not say to all 'give all your money to the poor and follow me'; he said it once to a man who happened to be very rich and for whom his money was a huge problem. Like lots of people today, the rich man's material possessions ruled him instead of the other way around. Jesus was offering him the way out of the bondage. Incidentally the man did not follow the Lord's advice.
"Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
"Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys."
"In the same way, those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my disciples."
I think he is being pretty clear.
Perhaps I should have been a little more specific. Jesus did indeed admonish his disciples to divest themselves of things that would hinder them from 'following' him. He did not tell all followers (as opposed to disciples.. the difference being in the level of commitment) to sell all. Reference the Sermon on the Mount. Thanks for helping me keep myself honest with the scriptures. But, as to the issue of homosexual behavior, while the Lord did not specifically state anything about that behavior, he did say that he had not come to destroy the Law but to fulfill it. Part of Leviticus deals pointedly with 'men who lie with men or beasts' and states they are to be dealt with accordingly. Jesus would have never offered anything contrary to this. Instead he told his followers that 1) love God with all your heart, mind and strength; and 2) love your neighbor as yourself, concluding that all other parts of the Law were fulfilled in doing this. Romans 1 reiterates this.
As for 'why oh why could so many people be turning from this religion?' as you have stated, it remains to be proven that your assertion is true. You forget that the US of A does not comprise the sum total of all of Christendom. Christianity is exploding in China for instance, and among the Gypsies, all of Europe is being exposed to a revival the likes of which has not been seen in recent memory. Here at home? We shall see how Christianity fares when times get tougher. Have a good day.
