    I'll believe you and the OP are fighters against injustice when:

    * You stand for the millions of babies slaughtered under Roe v. Wade

    * You loudly protest Christians martyred in the many thousands in the Sudan and elsewhere

    * You stop assaulting fundamentalists, a persecuted and discriminated-against minority group on this forum and in America

    It's God's principle that matters will be decided on the basis of two or more witnesses. So nice try.

    Lol this post. 'If we were as ignorant as people in the bible you'd see it was bad!'
    Neverminding that a. Homosexual contact between women at the same frequency as heterosexual contact is LESS likely to produce disease, but 'naturalists' still condemn lesbians. B. that homosexual contact exists outside of humans, re, in nature, so calling homosexuality a result of living in an unnatural environment falls flat on its face and c. This argument is used inconsistently to target homosexuals but not the myriad of dietary bible laws (by Christian's anyway). We eat shellfish because we now have the technology and knowhow to properly clean them therefore we do not condemn the eating of shellfish. Nor do we condemn other high risk behaviors in a 'but what if science wasn't there for medical aid' such as sports which regularly break bones, cause concussion and would have killed people in bible times.

    In case you hadn't noticed, I strongly oppose elective abortions. You can find my many posts in practically any RF thread with abortion in the title.

    I am more of a prolifer than most Christians. I firmly oppose anybody choosing death for someone else. Not only Christians and the unborn.

    "Assault fundamentalists"? Seriously?
    I live in a state that used to have Mike Pence for governor. I've been under assault by such fundamentalists for my entire adult life. Fighting back is not assault.

    I don't find you a credible spokesman for God. Especially not the limited sort of god you and Genesis describe.

    1. Babies? Thats an attempt at smuggling in a mental picture of a baby thats been born. Foetus is the accurate term. What about the rights of the women who would suffer without roe v wade.

    2. I do protest that. Injustice is injustice. Its as disgusting as if it were gays being killed.

    3. Poor fundamentalists. Perhaps if they didnt attempt to legislate their beliefs and impose them on others, or discriminate against lgbt groups, or actively promote misogyny and slavery, we'd lay off a bit.

    It’s my opinion, belief, knowledge, ect. I’m hoping everyone here can take it as such and not assume I’m condemning them or out to convert them. I couldn’t do either anyways.

    Prostate?
    What Does the Prostate Gland Do?

    I believe....
    A man should find a woman
    A woman that would be an inspiration to him
    A woman who would take care of him
    Because a man-woman relationship is natural and stable.

    So which relationships are the least/most stable?

    The gaps in the stability of same-sex and different-sex relationships are diminishing. Still, if you thought all relationships would show the same stability today, given the current legal and cultural climate, that is not the case: Overall, same-sex couples reported shorter relationship lengths than different-sex couples (Joyner et al., 2017). And male same-sex couples experienced significantly higher rates of dissolution than female couples or different-sex couples. This is consistent with previous findings: Gay and bisexual men are exposed to minority stressors that can de-stabilize relationships (Meyer, 2003; Lau, 2012). Where these men differ from women in female couples is in their engagement with protective factors: Many men do not emphasize emotional intimacy and minimization of boundaries to the extent that women do (Umberson, Thomeer, Kroeger, Lodge, & Xu, 2015).

    HIV probably came from other apes because people in the Congo eat them at times. All it took was a slip of the knife while butchering. Or even butchering with an open wound of some sort. Having sex with an ape was almost certainly not how it was introduced to humanity.

    Red herrings all the way. You naively suggest that one topic can't be of concern to an individual until other topics have also been covered off on. This is exactly what happens when I bring up animal cruelty in slaughterhouses and someone asks "well what about homeless vets?" or "what about Asian sweat-shop workers and the pain and suffering that goes into those products you may buy?" It is a tactic used by idiots who apparently can't tell the difference between one issue and another. It is a distraction tactic, often used to point the subject at hand away from the person's own guilt in the matter that was actually being discussed. You should stop doing this sort of thing... just some intellectual advice because what you have done is decidedly lacking a display of any sort of intelligence - and I noticed you managed to do it about 5 or 6 times. Bravo.

    I think the reason is that it tells person is not very smart, doesn’t understand the proper use of body parts. The act itself is like if person would try to eat through his ears, because they are also hole in their head. Just not very intelligent. Body parts have certain purposes and also cleanliness. And for example, it is not reasonable to eat with unclean hand, because you can get a disease, I think same is with the homosexual act.

    What? No babies were slaughtered due to Roe v. Wade.

    Were they martyred? Let's not abuse terminology, oh wait too late. But of course we decry all murder. Maybe you should use a dictionary more often.

    When and where has that happened? Now it appears that you are a bit delusional.

    oh my! And you wonder why no one takes your claims seriously.

    Peer review in archaeology is a real thing. If there was evidence for Sodom and Gomorrah you could find it in the peer reviewed literature.

    A "strange need to be proud" of who you are? Wow! You think the life a gay person would be so much better if they had the good sense to be thoroughly ashamed of themselves, perhaps up to and including suicide? (Which, by the way, happens...very often to gay Christians and Muslims from repressive families.) You have some ugly thoughts, I think.
    Then you don't mean "educated" to memorize, you mean "trained." As in a trained seal. To be educated means that you learn something for your betterment. Seals don't seem able to do that, but they can be taught tricks that aren't natural or good for them.

    I have heard that even some straight men enjoy pegging. I suppose if one's wife did it that action would be God approved;)

    What a strange God you believe in. At the time of Jesus, the population of Israel was around 600,000 people. The population of the rest of the world at that time was around 300,000,000. So this God (presumably not "the God of everybody else") only had concern for a measly 0.20% of the entire world?

    That's a pretty narrow focus for an everything-deity!! :eyes:
