IMO God created all things for a reason. Even a gay Christian like me. I don't try to speak for God, that would be very presumptuous.

But I will note you are being selective when you cite the Bible and it's lists of abominations.

My religion is based on love and forgiveness. It appears yours is based on judgement, ego and punishment. Why did you choose such an angry, hateful and vengeful God?

I would suggest you consider that anyone willing to be an ally is NOT someone you assault, verbally, physically or otherwise. His statements are FAR more open-minded than some of the others I've seen on here, and I'm willing to give him benefit of the doubt that his intentions are genuinely in line with what he is saying.

Do it the other way around. When did you decide you were straight?
Was it an event, a rape by a relative or friend?
What gave you the idea that Gay was bad and straight was good/
Have you ever tried the other side?
do you have drinks or dinner with any gay people?
What sex or gender do you think a transsexual is?
Are they gay? were they gay before?
Why would you sympathize for gays?
did you know that one out of ten people you know are gay?
They don't tell out of fear about people like you.
There is no difference between a gay or straight man, nor a gay or straight woman. Transsexuals do not agree with the organs that their body developed, its not their body. and they want it fixed. many were straight as men and as women they become straight as well. some don't.
So how did you know?
Actually, it sounded to me like he was asking the haters to define the year/month/day/hour when they decided they were going to be heterosexual. He sounds like an ally to me.

I don't even have to think about it. I can't imagine choosing. I'm totally straight. I know people who left the decision up to their minor children. One lady I worked with said her FIFTEEN year old had a boyfriend and a girlfriend. How can a mother condone sexual relationships anyway for a child let alone approve of the girl having one of each.

Sorry honey but my God is perfectly fine with it.

Now go have a plate of shrimp while wearing different fabrics to guarantee your own abominations since you're too stupid to realize what Jesus said about that part of the O T.

Why would you care? How does it impact your life in any way? Perhaps the child is a bisexual. Ever hear of it?

And of course it is not a choice. You just admitted that.

Some people are bi-sexual also. I wouldn't read anything into it. It is their personal business isn't it?

That way the little fur trader can spread her STD's to both sexes.
Looks like neither one of you classless fur traders can figure out anything about sex or kids.

Bisexuality IS a choice as opposed to gay. A choice not to choose. Disgusting. Like you.
