Or ownership of their bodies?
Or gender roles in society?
Or belief or absence there-of?
Or what they should or should not learn?
When you think about it, and break down their reasons to their fundamental components, one'll realize that ultimately, no one has the right to define what is right and wrong for others. This is something everyone has equal rights to decide for themselves.
Yet throughout history, there are always people who would stomp on the freedom of others, backing their beliefs with with faith or some abstract ideals. Which they always self-righteously force down people's throats, whether by abusing the law, or a gun at the back of people's heads.
It has to stop. One way, or another, it will stop.
Humans were put on Earth by God and we HAVE to acknowledge Him and His laws.
The Bible TELLS oh so clearly what is right in a relationship, and he guess what, if you follow it, EVERYTHING works out incredibly in life.
Fact is is that you cannot reclaim your humanity as it's a gift, a blessing, you're supposed to use it wisely not prance about making yourself look unfortunate and wearing near-rainbow banners which wont get you into Heaven, wont give you a normal life and wont fill the hole in your heart.
Remember, God made humanity and he can take it away faster then you can blink. People need to get off this humanity needy horse, they're only digging their own hole. This Simon is just appeasing the homosexuals, kind of like blowing yourself up to appease the terrorists.
getting back on topic, AngelsOfEmpathy, after all, god is can see all and sees your soul, so why not show your true self(not through clothing) but through relationships, so why not show your true self? you can hate homosexuals for all i care, but at the very least, respect the decisions of others. Your the type of people are the reason atheism exist, what kind of person would be in a religion you can't even express your true self?
People's marriage is NONE of your buisness
If you trying to force your religion on others, and make laws based off what it says, then YOU are the problem.
Love is LOVE, trying to restrict it makes you look like a crazy hate filled bigot.
You're going to hell, since you're not accepting of others, and since you can't even love they neighbor.
You're just as bad as being racist.
Marriage is a blanket constitution. And i am UNDER it, like everyone else.
You change marriage, it affects EVERYONE under the blanket.
Go to hell with your hypocritical bigotry.
You are intolerant of marriage and its institution, you'd rather change IT then yourself. Selfish.
You cannot say where i am going. But your intolerant bigotry is certainly narrowing the road your running down.
See the issues?
You let dogmas cloud what is right for all.
God if he is real AND good, do not care for such trivial details, like sexual orientations.
Religion is a link between the you and God, so in theory, as Boddhidarma shown, everyone can touch the Truth.
Beside, and thkfully, God is not nedded actually for right and wrong, moral and ethic.
Homophobia is wrong and unethic.
The Truth is, this is just a bullshit Appeal to Authorit.
Droning on 'God said so'.
If God is ready to send a whole group of peoples who can have TRue Love as much as others just because of 'they are the ghey sodomites',, it's evil.
YOU do not know what's right and wrong.
And beside, why Jesus IS the truth, why not Muhammed, Buddha, none?
The claim: The Bible says that God exists. The Bible is the inspired word of God, therefore whatever it says must be true.
The flaw: Circularity. God exists because the Bible says so, and we should trust the Bible because it is the word of God. This argument assumes the very thing (God) we are trying to prove. The same argument and logic can be used for any text that is considered revelatory--the Quran, the Torah, the Book of Mormon, or anything else.
The claim: The presence of miracles points to a supernatural force or god; miracles do occur, therefore there is a supernatural force or god
The flaw: The fact that miracles exist does not prove that they were caused by God (they could have been caused by an ancestor spirit). Thus this argument commits the fallacy of begging the question--it assumes that which is to be proven.
Separately, it is impossible to prove that miracles occur because in order to prove that an event occurs, you must use the laws of nature, but miracles by definition are violations of the laws of nature.
Talking about Catholics more or less.
If you're a Christian I plead with you- Live your life and let everyone else live theirs. Even if they are wrong and are living a sinful life, so what? There are other people around you who are too, whether you see that side of them or not. Focus on the ones who truly NEED help just to get by living their daily lives. Let anyone who has found love enjoy it. They don't want to be confined by your closed mindedness just as much as you don't want their 'lifestyle' forced on yourself.
That is the end of my two cents.
I'm also a amateur writer and have a lesbian couple in one of my stories and I have felt no conviction or guilt for it whatsoever.
I don't hate catholics at least They is people just like me and
Uh, why do people assume that just because someone's being critical of their ideologies/religion, that necessarily entails hating them as a whole? If you support LGBT rights, way to go! Nowhere does it imply hatred against Catholics as a whole. Every human being deserves respect, not necessarily their ideologies. I have several valid reasons to be critical of religion and the Church, but that doesn't by any stretch of imagination mean I hate Christians or Catholics.
Anyways, it took me a few minutes to get the top, I was like "Who does what now?" then I got it , and I laughed pretty hard.
Free country, means your religion does not rule
oh yeh and the roman empire fell because of homosexuality,.........oh the hilarity
