I know you like to juggle the testicales of anonymous men, but lies, as well? Not only are you being a dishonest c*nt, but also a daft one. Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism are a-okay with homosexuality. Judaism, which isn't orthodox, is fine with it too. Only real players that have a problem with it are fundie Christians and Muslims. Also, "abomination"? You mean like that thing growing from out of your skull that looks like radioactive moss? Instead of taking yourself fully out of the closet, you're taking that word fully out of context. Great. Also, riddle me this: If homosexuality is to abhorrent to this sky daddy, then why did he create it?

Side Note: Religion, overall, is a joke.

Only a pervert would infiltrate The Boy Scouts, Disney, schools, parenting, and in Britain make it illegal for a school teacher to refer to the students parents as mommy and daddy because the left leaning moral web destroyers, aka, tooty fruity mafia consider it to be a sexist remark.

It is so cute when a homosexual projects a heterosexual to be like them, abnormal. Opposites or inverses are never the same no matter how hard you try to humiliate, degrade, or defame the better half.
The effort is indeed noted.

And you of course define "the hard religious right" as churches who do not support homosexuality. You reject these churches for no other reason.
I'm straight. I reject them because their teachings are absurd, irrational and hateful. Also, they stick their noses where they don't belong, then whine if someone tells them to buzz off.

Therefore, since there is no traditional religion we know of that can condone homosexuality without rejecting its core values, homosexuality and religion (traditional) cannot co-exist.
Do you at least agree with this?

Not true, but even if it were, so what?
If you're not a member of one of those religions, you shouldn't have to deal with their beliefs.

You keep identifying this precept as that of only "hard-line" religion, but that's deception on your part.

You need to stop misleading everyone and admit that homosexuality and the Bible cannot co-exist.

Once again the Bible expressly prohibits homosexuality, so unless you're talking about a church or denomination that doesn't follow the Bible you're engaging in disinformation.

I don't see how we have any other choice after an unelected judge voided the law and the will of the people of California. BTW, same sex marriage isn't the same as sodomy.

I've edited out the balance of your post because your last line in the middle of it is sufficient evidence to support my point about the homosexual lifestyle -- it can't co-exist with religion.

People who call religion "a joke," are disbelievers, son, all your bending and twisting to hide this truism notwithstanding.

And as we see above, your bending and twisting can get pretty creative -- "Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism are a-okay with homosexuality."

Dude, that's ridiculous and you know it.

That's desperation.

That's turning your back on everything you were raised to believe -- everything the 10 generations that preceded you were raised to believe!-- in order to keep getting your fudge packed.

Honestly, Dude, is getting corn holed that incredibly pleasurable that you would turn your back (no pun) on your Judeo-Christian heritage and become a dot head Hindu in order to keep getting some?

The discussion continues to evolve, which you of course don't like because defending same-sex marriage and all its ramifications is like the little Dutch Boy at the dikes (no pun) trying to plug all the leaks.
Also, homosexuality is absolutely prohibited in the Bible as I've shown and as anyone with a brain knows.
The Buy-bull says people who work on Saturday should be put to death. God even directly ordered the torture death of someone who picked up sticks on a Saturday.

These symbols have nothing to do with pride and everything to do with sex cultism.

No.
You say you're straight, Rose, but I find that hard to believe when you advocate homosexual sex practices like pee-play, fisting, rimming, etc.

As I understand it, your rationale is "Straights do it too!"

But how do you know "straights do it to" Rose?

Do you and your boyfriend pee on each other?

Did you walk in the bedroom when you were a kid to find your mother fisting your father?

How do you know, "straights do it too!" Rose -- and even if they do, why do you think that makes these practices sane and as wholesome as mom's apple pie?

Once again, Reality, you distort the truth and manufacture facts that don't exist.
First of all, it's not merely "one" person who wears a penis suit during your gay "pride" parades. It's the fact that the entire parade is a public exhibition of hedonism and sexual degradation.
That's what gay "parades" have evolved into. You certainly know this. You've certainly read the anguished essays by tens of deeply concerned gays outraged at this depressing and repulsive outcome, yet you dishonestly characterize these now universality despised parades as squeaky clean weren't if for the one or two people who show up in penis suits.
How about six people in penis suits marching in formation?
LOL.
Your fixation on these penis suits has got me curious.
Gotta link?
Prof Marvel wrote:
How about a giant penis float shooting confetti from its head? How about half-naked go-go boys being led down the street on dog leashes by the "tops"?
Gay pride parades stopped having anything to do with pride in the 70s. You know this, and if you don't, everyone in this forum does.
The next lie you promote is that drunk women along the sidelines at Madi Gras flashing their breasts are part of the parade. You know this is a damnable lie.
You are such a drama queen....

You need to try and grasp the ideas in a post before replying with your stock LGBT cliches, fella.
First, how you compare homosexuality to skin color, etc., is a mystery. Some people choose to live the homosexual lifestyle, others don't. No one is born with a instinct to have anal sex. Anal sex is just the thing people with no desire for to vaginal/penis intercourse substitute.
Wrong. Most men who have anal sex have a vagina an inch away, and also engage in vaginal/penis intercourse. Sometimes in the same session..

Prof Marvel wrote:
In other words, stop confusing the gay gene with homosexual behavior -- they're not the same thing.
The Bible's prohibition was against the behavior, not the state of being homosexual which it says nothing about.
Indeed, it is was only when homosexual sex became legal that the HIV-AIDS epidemic and the contamination of our blood supply happened. Thus, it's perfectly reasonable to assume the admonitions in the Bible against homosexual sex prevented a similar epidemic and perhaps the utter extinction of humankind.
You are such a drama queen!
Prof Marvel wrote:
Today, even 30 years after universal safe sex education gay males remain more than 65% of all new HIV-AIDS cases. Obviously, there is something very lethal about your sex practices, something the Bible help put a stop to.
And here I'd like to ask a question:
If you could go back in history an re-write the Bible so that male-to-male sex is endorsed instead of prohibited, would you do it?
Yes.
