Utah gay pride parade draws hundreds of Mormon participants

By Dan Gilgoff, CNN.com Religion Editor

(CNN) – A gay pride parade in Mormon-heavy Salt Lake City drew thousands of participants, including a few hundred Mormons, whose church has been criticized by gay rights activists for its activism against same-sex marriage.

The Mormon contingent for Sunday's parade wasn’t made up of gay members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but rather straight Mormons who want to show support for gay and lesbians, according to CNN affiliate KSTU-TV in Salt Lake City.

The Mormon group marched near the front of the parade, just behind the event's grand marshal, Dustin Lance Black, the Academy Award-winning screenwriter ("Milk") who grew up in the church, according to KSTU.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints teaches that sex is only acceptable within heterosexual marriage. The church played a major role in passing California’s 2008 ban on same-sex marriage, known as Proposition 8.

Since then, the church has been subtly softening its posture toward gays and lesbians, appointing an openly gay Mormon to an official role in the church in San Francisco. Individual Mormon bishops have addressed recent meetings of gay and lesbian groups.

“I have a friend who asked me ... why I wasn’t at church today and I said, ‘I’m going to the gay pride parade,’ ” said one Mormon who marched in Sunday’s parade, according to KSTU.

"'He said, ‘Don’t Mormons hate gay people?’ ” the marcher continued. “I said, ‘Some do, but I don’t.’”

The Mormon group that marched in Salt Lake City was organized by Mormons Building Bridges, a group of lay Mormons who want to show support for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered community. The group is promoting Mormon participation in gay pride parades across the country this year.

“This Church has felt the bitter sting of persecution and marginalization early in our history,” the group says on its Facebook page. “Our parents, young adults, teens and children should therefore, of all people, be especially sensitive to the vulnerable in society and be willing to speak out against bullying or intimidation whenever it occurs, including unkindness toward those who are attracted to others of the same sex.

“... Each Latter-day Saint family and individual should carefully consider whether their attitudes and actions toward others properly reflect Jesus Christ’s second great commandment to love one another."

    Bill SI am overwhelmed by the love of God in His saliatvon! How could He save the fallen human race who had turned away from Him and came short of His glory? For Him to send His precious Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross and bear all of our sins in His body on to the tree is truly amazing love! And He was resurrected from the dead and in His resurrection became the life-giving Spirit! Now all we have to do is repent, believe, receive and call upon His name! In order to testify of His marvelous saliatvon we can be baptized into His wonderful name!This is the gospel we need to share with the people we come in contact with in our daily life. This world desperately needs this gospel. There are so many people who are starving for this gospel. The gospel is GOOD NEWS! There is far too much condemning in the words being preached today. Jesus came not to condemn but to save! And this saliatvon brings the eternal life into everyone who believes!

    A law that defines marriage as between a man and a woman was found unconstitutional by a federal judge in New York on Wednesday 6/6/2012 because it improperly interferes with states' rights to regulate marriage.

    The ruling by Manhattan federal court judge Barbara Jones followed a decision last week by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 1st Circuit in Boston that concluded the Defense of Marriage Act discriminates against gay couples.

    Judge Jones became the fifth judge to find the 1996 law unconstitutional, adding weight to the demands of law makers and activists who want the law repealed.

    "Here is some helpful reading that will shed the light on what is happening to so many people of this generation, especially because of our secular, humanistic society, which does not acknowledge God! "

    Religious people find it very annoying that people don't need God to be good, as science has now incontestably proved.

    For millennia, we've been brainwashed into believing that we needed the Almighty to redeem us from an essentially corrupt nature. Left to our own devices, people would quickly devolve into beasts, more violent, tactless, aggressive, and selfish, than we already are.

    Today, we know that this isn't true. With the discovery of mirror neurons by Italian neuroscientist Giaccomo Rizzolatti in the 1990s, we now have physiological proof of why - and how - our species became hard-wired for goodness. Mirror neurons are miraculous cells in the brain whose sole purpose is to harmonize us with our environments. By reflecting the outside world inward, we actually become each other - a little bit; neurologically changed by what is happening around us. Mirror neurons are the reason that we have empathy and can feel each other's pain. It is because of mirror neurons that you blush when you see someone else humiliated, flinch when someone else is struck, and can't resist the urge to laugh when seeing a group struck with the giggles. (Indeed, people who test for "contagious yawning" tend to be more empathic.) These tiny mirrors are the key to most things noble and good inside us.

    It is through mirror neurons - not God - that we redeem ourselves, achieve salvation, and are "reborn" in virtuous ways once co-opted by religions. Evolution knew what she was doing. A group of successful cooperators has a much higher chance of thriving than a population of selfish liars. In spite of what we read in the headlines, the ratio of bad to good deeds done on any given day across our planet holds at close to zero any day of the year. Although we are ethical works-in-progress, the vast majority of us are naturally positive creatures - meaning not harmful to our environments - most of the time in most of the ways that matter. And God has nothing to do with it.

    Spirituality does but God doesn't. Evolutionary psychologists tell us that our brains are hard-wired with a five-toned moral organ that focuses on a quintet of ethical values - one of which is purity, or sacredness. In a world that can sometimes be disgusting, we evolved an upper tier of emotional longing - the aspiration for purity - to keep us balanced in this satyricon of carnal delights (where animality beckons and frequently wins). Our need for sacredness is part of our ancient survival apparatus, and manifests in what we call faith, the need to connect with that sacred dimension. This has been the primary purpose of religion, of course - to congregate people for the Greater Good - but God has been, in fact, the divine carrot. The important part was communion, a context in which to transcend ourselves, if only for an hour on Sundays. Without this ability "to turn off the Me and turn on the We," moral psychologist Jonathan Haidt tells us, our species would still be wandering around as groups of nomads, unable to create a civilization.

    Aside from mirror neurons, there's oxytocin, the molecule of connection (also known as the molecule of love). It's fascinating to learn that the vagus nerve produces more oxytocin when we witness virtuous behavior in others that makes us want to be better people ourselves. We are wired by nature to be elevated at the sight of other people's goodness, mirror neurons and oxytocin conspiring to improve the species. Miraculous though it is, this natural human phenomenon has nothing to do with theology.

    Here is some helpful reading that will shed the light on what is happening to so many people of this generation, especially because of our secular, humanistic society, which does not acknowledge God!

    "The presence of a “spiritual vacuum” in the soul is a common condi/tion that always puts humans at risk of demonic possession. When the Holy Spirit is not present in the soul, it becomes easy for a demon or demons to take up residence. Sometimes, it is difficult to discern the difference between causes and effects of demon possession. As our secular society struggles to rid itself of all aspects of religion, more and more people are left with spiritual vacuums in their private lives as well as their corporate public life. When this spiritual vacuums exists, any one of a mul/ti/tude of activities and practices may draw the interest of demons.

    There are various causes that could lead to demonic pos/session:

    1. Interest in the Oc/cult
    2. Hyp/notism
    3. Extra- Sensory Perception: Mind control, meditation, “relaxation tapes”
    4. Fortune Telling, Palm Reading, & Ta/rot Cards
    5. Séances
    6. Ghosts and Haunted Houses
    7. Demonic Games
    8. Por/nographic material and ob/scene material
    9. Mind altering drugs
    10. Mult/iple Personalities (Note: not all cases)
    11. Hom/ose/xual behavior

    Demons go as far back as the war in heaven, since that time, the same fallen angels, as demons, have possessed countless human beings in generation after generation. That's why a person can claim to speak from bygone centuries. The soul has not been reincar/nated. It is merely pos/sessed by a demon, or perhaps more than one, who has pos/sessed cou/ntless humans before it. This goes for celebrities and non-celebrities alike who claim to be channels for the dead to speak, with or without the use of cr/y/stals. If a human alive today has supernatural knowledge of the past, this is nothing but the cap/ric/ious activities of demons.

    If a demon acts friendly or appears to do good deeds, the real objectives are to bring glory to Satan, to draw humans into add/ict/ive oc/cult practices, or to draw at/tention to the demon's own evil activities.

    Let's say a self-proclaimed psy/ch/ic goes to the police and offers his or her services in helping to find a child who has been missing for several days. The psy/ch/ic then begins to visualize in frightening detail the circ/umstances surrounding the case: kidnapping, se/xual assault, murder, and hasty burial, complete with the location of the makeshift grave. A police investigation confirms that all details revealed by the ps/yc/hic are unfortunately true. The ps/yc/hic may be well-meaning and would not be considered demon-poss/essed under normal cir/cu/mstance.. But, since this person has consciously or unconsciously invoked supernatural power to solve a mystery, a demon has answered the call with visualizations of great detail. It may be the very demon who earlier poss/essed the perp/etrator while the crime was committed. The demon or demons involved in this hypothetical case has no altruistic motives. Providing comfort for the grieving family is not an issue. The demon wants everyone to know what has been accomplished under its influence so Satan and all the other demons can get the glory..

      Ted Bundy was featured in a February 1996 A & E cable broadcast of the program Biography moderated by Jack Perkins. The program said this about an outside force which co/ntr/ibuted to Bundy's crimes:

      "He would feel that he heard a voice. Now again, he would never admit that he "heard voices," because he knew that was insane. But, he would describe someone as "another Ted" . This other Ted would start talking to him in this growling voice and point out that this woman thinks you could never have her. 'Look at her walking by. What is she thinking about you ...' And work him up into this hatred where then he would start this process of sta/lking ..."

      Jeffrey Dahmer is a also a classic example of a demon-possessed criminal. He ex/hibited the obvious symptoms of lust and violence. His unnatural power of persuasion may be less well known but no less clear.

      On the night of his first murders, while taking his dismembered male victim to the dump in garbage bags, he was stopped by a cop for wandering over the center line. He was such a smooth talker, the cop issued a tic/ket and let him go.

      Near the end of his killing spree, a drugged male victim came awake while Dahmer was out for beer, and ran naked into the street, looking for help. A passerby called 9-1-1 and Dahmer convinced the cops it was just a lovers' quarrel. Later that night, he killed the boy.

      According to a Biography script on June 18, 1998, "... Jeffrey was ... always quite willing to blame the devil for taking over his soul ... "

      Human service workers across the country are alarmed at the rapidly-rising rate of suicide among teenagers. Demons are drawn to humans who are involved in violence, illicit s/ex, and who use drugs. The number of teenagers who are experimenting with illicit se/x, drugs, or both is extremely high. That means that the demons are having a field day, zap/ping from teen to teen with implanted thoughts of self-destruction. Note: In Christian belief, suicide is one of the worst sins to com/mit with the only con/sequence being the harshest of all- eternal damnation.

      It is Satan's main goal to destroy human beings which were made in the image of God . He hates God, he hates Jesus Christ His Son with all the hatred he has, and he will do anything in his power to separate those human beings which God created for Himself to fellowship with, who by loving Him and allowing Him to become their Lord, become His living temples, where He abides in their hearts, from God who created them.

      So is it wonder that Satan will demonise God in minds of those whom he desires for himself, and even go to the extent to cou/nterfeit God, having the goal to warp human beings to such extent that they allow him to enter and possess them, becoming his living temples?
      And that's exactly what he does!

      We, human beings are no match for Satan . He is a powerful spiritual being, who retained certain measure of power after his fall which was due to his rebellion. But he is NO MATCH FOR GOD, and he trem/bles at the Name of Jesus Christ.
      The only way to be set free from his grip and to overcome him, is by
      ***Coming to God by His Son Jesus Christ, repenting (turning ) from your sins, and acknowledging your need for Christ and His righteousness.
      ***Make Christ be your Lord and savior
      ***Rely on the Holy Spirit for the power to live above the power of sin
      *** Immerse yourself in the Word of God, the Holy Bible. Pray and ask God to reveal His word to you. Start reading the Gospel of John, going through the whole New Testament. Read slowly so the Holy Spirit, the Counselor and the One who teaches and reveals the meaning of the Scriptures, can speak to you. Make notes about everything you read. Pray for purity of your heart and mind, pray for God to give you a SINGLE heart only for Him. protection
      *** Find a godly counselor , mentor and helper, and God's people's fellowship, not necessary in a church building...... Ask God to show you His true people..... Ask for the spirit of discernment, so you'll be able to see beyond the facade. Ask in all things the Spirit of God to be your constant companion and guide.

      Then and only then Satan will be no match for you, and he will have to flee from you, because you ar hidden in the power of God and in His Son Jesus Christ.
      But fee from all apearance of evil, and do not allow yourself to be "entertained" by it. Because if after God delivers you from the clutch of the evil one, you allow him to seduce you by entertaining you , telling you there is no harm in it, he'll build a fortress in you all over again! !

      I had a friend once, who went back and forth, and would not abstain from "entertaining" himself. And satan drove him to commit suicide. There is no slack when it comes to dealing with Satan ind his works.
      YOU MUST cut him off ALL THE WAY!

      Let those who heave ears hear, and take these things to heart.
      As for the rest, to you apply the verse of Scripture from the Word of God where it says
      "For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but to us which are saved it is the power of God unto salvation.."(1Corinthians 1:18)

      In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness comprehended it not.

      There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.

      He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and His own[d] did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
      And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.....
      And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.

      And He was BEFORE all man's lame science and it's pathetic "experts". They are blind leading the blind, because, so long they deny the realm of the spirit and say man has no soul, they are TOTALY Disqualified! The wealth of whole earth could be spent and given to them, yet they will find no answers to problems that plague human kind. And that's the fact they won't tell you, because they want a job, ! Do you get it? They want a job, and will go with the flow, no matter where it leads, and which wind blows! And you swallow it all – hook, line and sinker! But you won't come to God to be healed, because you won't humble yourself in your heart! You have only two choices... God or satan. That too your experts won't tell you... because they dont' care for your soul!

Or the hundreds of thousands of experts that have stated that being gay is NOT a mental illness, it's NOT a choice and it CAN'T be voluntary changed. The experts that are proving you have NO clue on this subject and you are nothing more than a prejudice bigot spreading hatred through your bitter judgmental attitude while claiming it's all part of your god, your are NOTHING like your Christ. Duh! The American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Counseling Association, the American Psychiatric Association, the American Psychological Association, the American School Counselor Association, the National Association of School Psychologists, and the National Association of SocialWorkers, together representing more than 480,000 mental health professionals, have all taken the position that homosexuality is not a mental disorder and thus is not something that needs to or can be “cured." Heterosexual behavior and homosexual behavior are normal aspects of human sexuality. Despite the persistence of stereotypes that portray lesbian, gay, and bisexual people as disturbed, several decades of research and clinical experience have led all mainstream medical and mental health organizations in this country to conclude that these orientations represent normal forms of human experience.

      That’s why there are so many versions of your bible and so many variations of your religion. No one in your cult really knows the truth. They have even proven the book of John was added later by a scribe that had nothing to do with your Christ, they added the word homosexual to the text when the original was talking about prostitution, I could go on and on about proving your bible wrong but you’re to brainwashed to hear the REAL truth.

      “And this is what you need to know:

      ***You have a soul that will continue to live on and on

  9. All atheists are gay but NOT all gays are atheists.

    Leviticus 20:13 started all their misery. To escape from it and evade the guilt while fulfilling their lust for sodomy and other hom.ose.xual acts, they must refute what it says. To do it they used a simple reasoning and logic.

    a.) The Bible said that it's ho.mos.exual act is a sin.

    b.) The Bible is the word of God.

    If it's the Bible who says that it's a sin and if the Bible is the word of God, The best way to refute what the Bible says is to nullify God. Simple as this:

    There is NO God, hence the Bible is NOT true.
    If the Bible is not true, ergo, ho.mo.s.exual act is not a sin.

    And they expect to sell like pancakes with the gay community as their target market. Yet, they fail. Their immateriality and insignificance in the world's populace strongly proves it.

    That's why they are working overtime capitalizing every issues especially involving gays.

    They tripled their effort in advertizing using slogans that like telling gay people that if you are gay, sodomy is a must. They also have their jingle ent.iti.tled "Born this Way" and Lady Gaga as their primary endorser. Yet, it didn't improve the sell significantly.

    But they'll never give up because, misery really loves company.

    For you.
    A thought to consider without a typical ego response

    Accept Jesus christ as your lord and saviour. You never know how soon is too late. Transcend the worldly illusion of enslavement.
    The world denounces truth....

    Accepting Jesus Christ (for me) resulted in something like seeng a new colour. You will see it .....but will not be able to clearly explain it to anyone else..... Its meant to be that way to transend any selfism within you.

    Also... much the world arranges "surrounding dark matter into something to be debated" in such a way that protects/inflates the ego.

    The key is be present and transcend our own desire to physically see evidence. We don't know anyways by defending our own perception of dark matter.

    Currently.... most of us are constructing our own path that suits our sin lifestyle. Were all sinners. Knowing that we are is often an issue. But both christians and non are sinners.

    We don't like to Let go and let god. We want control to some degree. This is what Jesus asks us to do. "Let go and let god".
    It's the hardest thing to do... but is done by letting the truth of scripture lead you (redemptive revelation)... as I said .

    Try reading corinthians and see if it makes sense to you. Try it without a pre conceived notion of it being a fairy tale.
    See the truth...
    do we do what it says in todays society... is it relevant... so many have not recently read and only hinge their philosophy on what they have heard from som other person...which may have been full of arogance pride or vanity..

    Look closely at the economy ponzi, look at how society idolizes Lust , greed , envy, sloth, pride of life, desire for knowledge, desire for power, desire for revencge,gluttony with food etc .

    Trancsend the temporal world.

    Just think if you can find any truth you can take with you ....in any of these things. When you die your riches go to someone who will spend away your life..... You will be forgotten.... history will repeat iteslf.... the greatest minds knowledge fade or are eventually plagerzed..... your good deeds will be forgotten and only give you a fleeting temporary reward . your learned teachings are forgotten or mutated..... your gold is transfered back to the rullers that rule you through deception. Your grave will grow over . This is truth .

    Trancsend your egoism and free yourself from this dominion of satan. Understand you are a sinner and part of the collective problem of this worldly matrix... Repent.... Repent means knowing

    Evidence follows faith. Faith does not follow evidence..... Faith above reason in Jesus Christ.

    Faith comes by Reading or Hearing the word of god from the bible . Ask Jesus in faith for dicernment and start reading the new testament... You will be shocked when you lay down your preconceived notions and ....see and hear truth ... see how christ sets an example ... feel the truth....

    Read Ecclesiastes. Read corinthians.

    You cant trancend your own egoism by adapting a world philosophy to suit your needs. Seek the truth in Christ.

    Sell all your cleverness and purchase true bewilderment. You don't get what you want ....you get what you are in christ.

    I promise this has been the truth for me. In Jesus christ .

    Think of what you really have to lose. ...your ego?

    Break the Matrix of illusion that holds your senses captive.

    once you do . you too will have the wisdom of God that comes only through the Holy Spirit. Saved By grace through Faith. Just like seeing a new colour.... can't explain it to a transient caught in the matrix of worldly deception.
    You will also see how the world suppresses this information and distorts it

    You're all smart people . I tell the truth. Its hard to think out of the box when earthly thinking is the box.
    I'ts a personal free experience you can do it free anytime . Don't wait till you are about to die.. START PUTTING YOUR TREASURES WHERE THEY REALLY MATTER >
    Its awsome and It's just between you and Jesus

      You are able to do it because you're a bisexual that's the point, trying to convert an actual gay person has been proven to be dangerous and detrimental to their overall well being. It's why there are now thousands of gay churches, gay clergy and pastors, rabbis and nuns that are saying being gay as we know and understand it today is not a sin. Plus hundreds of pastors have actually written apology letters to the gay community for fueling the unfounded hatred and bigotry towards this minority group.

      Sorry dude you love and are having sex with a woman that means you are a bisexual. All the major medical, health, and mental health professionals have said trying to convert a gay person is dangerous and detrimental to their well being. I agree with the other poster you took the cowardly way out it you are truly gay, because nowhere in the bible does your god condemn the saved loving long term relationship of a gay couple as we know and understand it today. If your wife truly loved you and knew you were truly gay she shouldn't have married you and helped you to accept yourself for who you are, you are not in a healthy loving relationship.

    To all gays who still believe in God. Please don't be deceived by the flattering words of miserable atheists here. They have trying to lure you by making you believe that there's nothing wrong about doing the ho.mose.xual act when it's very clear in the Bible that it's abominable in the sight of God. They have been pretending that they are symphatizing your cause but the truth is they are dragging your feet to the pit of hell. They only want company of their misery.

    We might be sounds hateful to you but we would like you to know that we only look for your own good. We don't want you to be ultimately deceived by the devil's minions here on earth. There's nothing wrong of being gay, WE are born gay but doing the act is definitely our choice. We are not commanded to celibate and we shared the same civil rights as the straights but unfortunately not in the way that we want to but what the law and the norms dictate.

    I'm a gay, been married for eight years but happily only for six. Have two wonderful kids and upcoming one in the womb, a 6-yr. old boy and 4-yr girl and another 8 months boy inside the womb of my very patient and supportive wife.

    I admit, it have been a torture being in the closet and forced (myself) to get married in the age of twenty due to parents and peer presure. My first couple of years of marriage life has been miserable and pathetic that made me questioned God and put me in the brink of giving-up especially when my wife has began to notice it. Fortunately, with her understanding, patience, support and comfort and with our faith in God and His words we've been able to brave 'em all and remain steadfast.

    And when I first saw my son, it wiped all my misery and every burdens in an instant. And the rest is history.

    We are now expecting another healthy boy next month. And it will certainly add happiness and and love in our family. I can not say that I completely over come being gay and to be honest, I still admire men until now but has been able to control it. It's still a mind over matter decision. I also can not say what the future lies, what I'm certain for now that I'm happy and I love my family, and I'm likewise certain that GOD LOVES US.

      You said that you're certain that your god loves you. Are you suggesting that your deity only favors you now that you've denied your nature, or did he love you before as well? If he exists, as you and your friends claim, and created man, then he created you. If he's so all powerful and clever, why didn't he just create you as a straight man?

      He put you through all of this because he loves you? With friends like that, who needs enemies!

      No, MY CHRIST went to the sinners, all sorts of them, because he seen their need. HE told them of the love and grace of God, and power they'll have trusting in His name, and they were set free. None of them remained in their sins and bondages. That's what true Christianity is: overcoming by the grace of God, not laying down and allowing satan to make mockery and spectacle out of us, so he can boast himself before God how he has accomplished to degrade and dehumanize those which He loves and has created in His own image. But you and people like you couldn't care less, so long you have your fleshly "needs" fulfiled and gratified .

      "You robbed her of the possibility of having a partner that truly loved and desired her."

      Perhaps you're right and that what exactly what I said to here when we've finally talked about it. I apologized to her but he said there's no need to apologize because she perfectly understand my situation and as my childhood friend she already had suspi.cion regarding my true ident.ity/s.e.x.ual orientation. But when I proposed to her she accepted me willingly no matter her suspi.cion was true or not because she fell in love with me eversince when we were young.

      "Don't try to tell me that you are everything to her that a straight man could be because as a gay man I know better and cannot be fooled by you like some ignorant straight people out there."

      You maybe right, I'm nothing compared to what a straight man could be to her but I am giving all my best to be enough for her. And her love and being the first in her life helped a lot.

      "It's also sad that you will never get the chance to know true love because you took the cowards way out."

      I can look you straight in the eye and tell you that I already found it in my wife. Her kindness, understanding, support, care and unconditional is overwhelming. I have no regrets choosing the easy way out with her and I can courageously say it here, there and everywhere.

      gynandromorph, if your god both created gays and hates gays, and yet somehow loves us all, then he's a confused numbskull, and even if he did exist, he doesn't have my trust, or my respect.

      But, as I said, it's far more likely that he doesn't exist, in which case it's simply the dogma of man's religions which are so fraught with contradictions, and by extension, I don't have any trust, or any respect for those dogmas either.

      And I'm under no obligation to "tolerate" them either.

      "oppressive gloom and doom" .....? I guess depends on who you are.
      To those who have the love of truth in their hearts, the words of our Lord and the testimony of His Spirit are balm to their souls.
      But IT IS true that to those who are perishing , they are the fragrance of death unto death (2 Corinthians 2:15). Because they refused to love the truth and so be saved, God sends upon them a strong delusion, to make them believe what is false, so that they may be condemned , who did not believe the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness (2Thessalonians 2 10-12) – The Holy Bible – The Word of God.
      And you think that your Aesop's fables stand to measure up?! That's a joke worth a hearty laugh, but it is no laughing matter. It is a pi/tiful condi/tion that some people are in, yet they have no idea! Not Yet!

      "OK, have your say! When you face your Maker, you can present your case to Him. See how you fare then!"

      There is NO love in your heart for the gay community. The experts have shown that being gay is NOT a mental illness, it's NOT a choice, it CAN'T be voluntarily change and it's part biological. It stands to reason then your god could have created gay people as a test to the Christian community on their ability to grow and love those that are different than them and those they fear out of ignorance. Sorry to say you'll not be going to your heaven since you are not a loving person but a bitter judgmental one who is spreading lies and hatred about this minority group.

      Nah, it just shows how dense this cult is because they can't handle the real facts about gays today.

      The real facts about "gays" is that they want to do their thing out of the closet!
      Not that any of us care..... just don't mess with the laws of nature and expect to be accepted as normal! Marriage is ONLY between a man and a woman! Enough said!

      Another bit of proof that anytime some moron writes "Enough said", "End of story", or "Period", the post is certain to contain nothing but idiocy.

      Thanks for yet another addition to the canon, Fed.

      "just don't mess with the laws of nature and expect to be accepted as normal! Marriage is ONLY between a man and a woman! Enough said!"

      Gay relationships are found throughout all of nature and the experts have shown that heterosexual behavior and homosexual behavior are normal aspects of human sexuality. Despite the persistence of stereotypes that portray lesbian, gay, and bisexual people as disturbed, several decades of research and clinical experience have led all mainstream medical and mental health organizations in this country to conclude that these orientations represent normal forms of human experience. Marriage is a civil right and gay couples deserve that civil right.
