So it's OK to commit atrocities against people for the right reasons?The slavery of the Bible is different than the slavery of the South. Today the slavery of the Bible is related to today's debt (credit cards, loans, etc.).
No, it's the truth. Ok, so there was never slavery of homosexuals, but there has been rampant discrimination, up to and including legal execution, for centuries.No one suggested making seperate water fountains and bathrooms for homosexuals. Linking homosexuality to the AA civil rights movement is weak.
Hate is hate. And, oddly enough, both times conservative churches were strongly pro-hate.
Strawman fallacy. I said that sexual orientation is an issue of physiology, not morality, and there is no doubt about that. Bisexuals respond physiologically to both sexes, and transgender do to their preferences.Oh really, then your claiming that there has never been a gay man who's been with a woman before? Oh and your claiming that bisexuals don't exist either right? Or transsexuals? Right.
I'd ask you to debate the point, but since you clearly don't have a logical leg to stand on, you'd just embarrass yourself more.
Older is irrelevant. The old definition of marriage forbid mixed-race marriages, and, surprise surprise, churches were against the repeal of anti-misegination laws.Maybe because the definition has historical and religious meaning that has co-existed longer than the current liberalizing west society of today?
How does someone else's marriage dictate how you live?I can't dictate to others how to live but they can dictate to me? Sorry that just doesn't make sense.
Oh, that's right, because you're so narrow-minded and intolerant that you can't stand to know that other people are different from you.
If they're using the Bible as a reference for history, yes, ask them to stop, or your degree won't be worth much.Oh really. That's interesting, I will ask my professors to quit using those dang cloud god books.
Oh, so you aren't a Christian then. No, sorry, you aren't, because you don't follow every single rule that Bob's First Church of Nowhere follows.WRONG. Since you obviously lack expertise in this field let me tell you something. To be a Christian is to be a follower of Jesus Christ. Doing anything that doesn't agree with the teachings of Christ is a cult. Look that one up.
I explicitly said not to commit the "No true scotsman" fallacy, and you reply with a textbook example.
Churches that accept gays may be a more liberal version of Christianity, but they are Christian, whether you like it or not. Next you'll claim that Catholics aren't Christian.
I'm sorry, what? How is letting others live their lives their way bigotry? Do you even own a dictionary? I ask nothing, nothing, but that you refrain for forcing others to follow your obsolete morals.Your a bigot for thinking that homosexuality should produce children in the first place. It takes two different accessories last time I checked and there's a good reason for it.
So infertile couples should be denied marriage?in this instance, your talking about an institution that was founded for the sole purpose of forming a new familial unit, making babies, and so on. my point was that your biologically incapable of being = in this sense.
Ever vote for a politician who in turn voted against gay rights? Then you're against us.to me makes it sound like if i am not with you i am against you
There are also passages which say it's a mortal sin to wear cloth of two different fabrics and eat shelfish.Homosexuality is not shall we say, a good thing in that book. There are passages that specifically speak towards it being wrong..
Sure. So that means legal abortion across the board, gay marriage, stem cell research, the abolishment of all 'blue laws' regulating the sales of liquor, and no more attempts to push creationism into schools. Comply with that, and I'll consider it a worthwhile separation of church and state.If you want conservatives to stay out of your life (politics), why don't you offer the same courtesy and stay out of their lives (the church=assembly of believers)? Is that concept not fair and balanced?
So, you're content going to hell because you wear cotton-nylon blends?but Christ does not condone sin. Who Was it that preached Hell more than anyone else in the New Testament and to repent and believe the Gospel?
No. Because the conservatives *do* have precisely that agenda. Look up Dominionism. Welcome to the ugly truth - the Republicans are willing party to a movement to create a theocracy. And I apply the label of bigot to anyone who opposes equal rights, no matter what their reason.Can we not shun labels for the sake of civil argument, and your assumptions that all conservatives have an agenda to further some kind of "reich".
If this is what Christianity is about, then I would ally myself with Satan over God. Time for a regime change.
