    You seem to have left these out of your little commentary…

    The Jesus character was written by other men to be tolerant of homosexuality. Definitely no words were written against it in the Jesus character’s name…

    • What was the relationship between the centurion and his slave? Were they a gay couple? If so, Jesus didn’t seem to mind. Matthew 8:5-13
    • “There are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother’s womb.” Is Jesus talking about homosexuals here? Matthew 19:12
    • “I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.” Luke 17:34
    • “Two women shall be grinding together [Oh, myyyy!]; the one shall be taken, and the other left.” Luke 17:35
    • “There was leaning on Jesus’ bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved.” John 13:23-25
    • “The disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper” John 21:20

    However, it’s PAUL and other NT writers that wrote all the ANTI-HOMOSEXUALITY crap in the New Testament. That is what christians are using to condemn them. So whom do you follow, Tim? The Jesus character or the Paul character? Or, do you just do what your Pastor tells you?

    • With his usual intolerance, Paul condemns homosexuals (including lesbians). This is the only clear reference to lesbians in the Bible. Romans 1:26-28
    • Paul lists ten things that will keep you out of heaven, including homosexuality and being “effeminate.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
    • Homosexuals (those “that defile themselves with mankind”) are included on the list of lawless, disobedient, unholy, and profane people. 1 Timothy 1:10
    • In the last days people will become evil, “without natural affection.” Some fundamentalists say that this refers to homosexuals. (It doesn’t. The greek word “astorgos” (“without natural affection” in the KJV) means “without family love” and has nothing to do with homosexuality or homosexuals. 2 Timothy 3:3
    • In 2 Peter 2:6-9 you are reminded that God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for living ungodly, filthy conversation, and unlawful deeds.
    • God sent “eternal fire” on the people of Sodom and Gomorrah for “going after strange flesh.” Jude 7-8

    The point of the original post image is to show that Christians ARE discriminating. You are the one evading that point and distracting us by saying “nope” and the reasons for the discrimination are different. Thank you for at least obliquely admitting christians discriminated against blacks and now homosexuals. All you did was say they did it using different portions of your bible.

    The REAL morality question here is, why discriminate against other people at all? Is discriminating against other people BECAUSE A BOOK TELLS YOU TO moral? If you say yes, then you are NOT thinking for yourself and just parroting what someone else tells you to. If you say no, why aren’t you actively persuading your christian friends to stop discriminating against homosexuals because your bible or pastor tells them to? Either way, christian discrimination against homosexuals is going on, and at best I see you on the fence about it, Tim.

      Denial is not a river in Egypt. Sticking your head in the sand by just saying “nope” doesn’t make the reality go away, Tim.

      • Tim says:

        I also linked to an article I wrote examining the actual reasons why comparing the Christian stance against homosexuality is not the same as the Christian stance against racial issues.

What you think about this?
