Homosexual Military a Sign of God’s Judgment?

This week saw the end of the long standing ban on homosexuals serving in the military.  This is truly a sad day for our normal men and women serving their country.  With the new rules, they will find themselves at times being forced to put themselves in possibly compromising positions with sexual perverts that would even make me extremely uncomfortable and distracted from my duties.

I’ll make no bones about it.  Homosexuality is not normal.  It is not a normal way of life.  God calls it an abomination in Leviticus 20:13 when He says:

“If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.”

If it is supposed to be a normal and acceptable lifestyle, why would God speak so harshly against it?  I also can’t understand how so many homosexuals claim to be Bible believing Christians and say that the Bible does not condemn their sinful ways.  Men and women who stand in the pulpit as preachers of God’s Word and tell their congregations that God says it’s okay to be that way are liars and should be defrocked and run out of the church.

God looks at those who commit same-sex sex the same way he looks at murders and adulterers, all of which are punishable by death.

What’s even more upsetting is how the public school system has been teaching children as young as kindergarten and first grade that homosexual perversion is normal and should be accepted.  Jesus warned us about leading children astray in Matthew 18:5-6 when He said:

"Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.”

Business, state and federal governments, public schools and now the military are openly endorsing and approving of homosexual rights and homosexual lifestyles.  This is a true sign of God’s judgment on America which can be found in Romans 1:18-32

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.

Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God’s decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.”

This describes America to a tee and also presents a very scary picture for the future.  Every time a society has become as decadent and immoral as America is today, God has destroyed that nation and ended their rule.  His judgment is felt by all, even those that remain righteous and faithful.  Look at Daniel and his friends who were captured, made slaves and thrown into the fire for failing to bow to the king.

If America does not repent and turn from its wicked ways and stop approving of such perverted and sinful ways, then we are surely headed to God’s swift and complete judgment.  God’s judgment will be unavoidable to all. I don’t know about you, but that scares me more than things such as nuclear war, famine, disease, physical abuse or anything else that could possibly happen.

    I am sure there will be those who will post that this man is a bigot, however, he speaks the truth. Of course, we know that people today don't want the truth; they want what their itching ears want to hear. Just as this passage in Romans tells, they will ally themselves with those who tell them what they want to hear and believe. God help us all.

    • TheEkstaza

      I hope I'm first in line to say, yes this man is a bigot.

      • Enubus

        There is nothing bigoted about rejecting perversion in less then 1% of the population. The military is no place for social experiments and neither is a school. Homosexuality was always listed in DSM as a perversion, until it became political by the moronic left!enubus@

        • Rounder

          If its a perversion, then why does it occur naturally, in nature. That's right. It's genetic. Happens in nature all of the time. Why would God allow that?

        • Don

          if it happens in nature all the time how do you explain the Darwin theory of evolution? Those that do not procreate DIE as in become EXTINCT!!!

        • SilverBullets

          WRONG Your simple, uneducated brain is confusing a natural display of dominance... NOT homosexuality!!! This is how animals establish their social hierarchy and breeding rights. But seeing how your immature little mind works, you're probably already rationalizing other deviant behavior such as S&D (submission & dominance)...not the same thing knucklehead.

          Stop your absurd anthropomorphism...grow up...and find God!

      • Candyman

        No. He speaks truth. Homosexuality is an abomination. They are not "gay". That means happy and most of the ones that I have known were far from it. They don't know what happy is. As a former professional soldier, I will tell you that it does not matter what the mainstream "liberal" media says, homosexuals cause problems in military units, especially in combat arms. If their sexual preferences were kept to themselves, it would be no problem, but I have seen many cases were these "queer" individuals (queer means strange) tried to force themselves on other soldiers in the barracks. Oh, ya, they are no problem, none at all. Not!

        • TheEkstaza

          That's some serious BS. I too served in the military and we all knew who was who. Nobody ever tried to force themselves on anybody.

      • jawbone

        The author didn't say he thought he was BETTER than homosexuals. He didn't say he hated them or was intolerant. I doubt he goes out of his way to avoid homosexuals at the salon, grocery store, or at work. But to YOU, if he expresses his beliefs, then he's a bigot. Maybe YOU are a bigot because you are intolerant of people who choose not to approve of a particular lifestyle. The left likes to brand dissenters as "HATERS" because they think it will shame people into silence. That's the same little game you're playing by calling out "BIGOT." So, Ekstaza, if I have a problem hanging around drunks or chain smokers because I don't like being vomited-on and witnessing that kind of self-destructive behavior or smelling like an ashtray, does that make me a bigot in your book? To draw an analogy to what you preach: Do you think ANYONE would choose to be an alcoholic? They must be born that way, right? Someone MADE them take that first drink and every drink after that. They have ABSOLUTELY NO CONTROL over walking into a bar or buying a six-pack at the store. Or maybe it's a sickness that controls them. Or maybe it's FREE CHOICE and for whatever reason they PREFER to do something destructive to themselves. They like the feeling it gives them, or the camaraderie, or they like the rebellion. Whatever the reason, they choose to CONTINUE to practice that habit/lifestyle. So are they puppets or agents of free will? What an insult to suggest people don't and can't make choices. That's awfully arrogant of you to make that assumption for other people, Ekstaza. Talk to an adulterer, a thief, a dieter trying to lose weight: habits form and are hard to break. Once you've done something it's easier to do it again and again. Habit leads to addiction. People are lazy. It's easier to keep doing what is familiar and comfortable rather than trying to change behavior and take the course that's more difficult even if it's better for you. If people could discipline themselves to not give in to any and every urge (whether "natural" or not) we would have a society with much healthier people (mentally physically, spiritually, intellectually). Pick your vice: food, sex, greed, power, etc.. people do things because they LIKE to, not because someone forces them to do it. You're argument that it's not a choice is laughable.

        • Rounder

          What makes you think homosexuals have no control? More conservative mind washing. I served with two men who were known to be gay and no one ever had an issue. One was awarded a silver star. What they did in privacy was their business. No one in the company ever experienced being hit on, leered at, or otherwise made uncomfortable. You're right. It's about control. When are you going to exercise some?

        • Seediore

          @Rounder: That was BEFORE DADT was repealed. NOW its open season and they intend to proclaim and preach to all who believe and think as they do AND to those who don't. They can't procreate, so they must proselytize. Don't you think for one hot second they won't be all over those fresh, young recruits to do a little recruiting of their own. Don't believe me? ... just hide and watch.

        • TheEkstaza

          Homosexuals don't need to procreate to make more homosexuals. Straight people make plenty of them all of the time. I'll tell you what's funny. Christians are completely unable to give birth to other christians. They have to teach their atheist babies to believe.

        • TheEkstaza

          Yes, I'm intolerant of of ignorant pukes who can't mind there own business and let people be who they are. Smoking and drinking are choices. Being gay is not. No I don't think anyone would choose to be a drunk, but they certainly choose to drink. I've been addicted to nicotine. I made the choice to smoke. Now I make the choice not to. You don't just wake up one day and says, "hey, you know what would be just great? Being GAY!!!". No one does that.

        • don

          If you believe being homosexual is not CHOICE then you are deceived. Satin is the greatest deceiver and he rules this fallen world, any one open to him will be his. Only belief in and following Jesus will save you.

          SATAN is the devil...Satin is fine fabric.

        • prsmith

          Why do you lay your judgement and name calling on people which should rightly be directed at God? I don't pretend to understand why some men like men and some women like women. What I do know is that the issue is addressed specifically and directly in the Bible. It is an abomination in the sight of God and, as Jew or Christian, it is our responsibility to pass on the Word to those who will listen.

        • TheEkstaza

          I feel that as a responsible human being, I have the responsibility to tell people that there is a much better way to live than by the rules of broonze age sheep herders who thought that magic beings ruled the Universe.

        • Seediore

          @TheEkstaza: Are you potty trained? Were you BORN potty trained? Wasn't it more "natural" to just poop in your pants? But you don't, do you? ...Because you "learned" to exercise self control! If your "urges" don't fit into what is NORMAL behavior in society, then you learn to exercise SELF CONTROL!

        • TheEkstaza

          Actions that do not cause harm do not require correction. I can imagine that it could be somewhat harmful to sit in your own feces all day. It sure is a boring world that you envision, completely devoid of anything abnormal. The world I live in is filled with variety, and it is beautiful. I feel sorry for you.

        • all4HIM

          AMEN ! jawbone thank you for that testimony of truth ! GOD gave man freewill to chose as such He doesn't shove salvation down our throats, it's a choice we must make to accept the redeeming blood of JESUS CHRIST our Lord and Saviour Who is the ONLY way to heaven and eternal life !!! GOD destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah for homosexuality and that reason alone ! why is it that every single civilization that has embraced homosexuality has come to a quick demise .

        1WHAT SHALL we say [to all this]? Are we to remain in sin in order that God's grace (favor and mercy) may multiply and overflow?

        2Certainly not! How can we who died to sin live in it any longer?

        3Are you ignorant of the fact that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?

        4We were buried therefore with Him by the baptism into death, so that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious [power] of the Father, so we too might [habitually] live and behave in newness of life.

        5For if we have become one with Him by sharing a death like His, we shall also be [one with Him in sharing] His resurrection [by a new life lived for God].

        6We know that our old (unrenewed) self was nailed to the cross with Him in order that [our] body [which is the instrument] of sin might be made ineffective and inactive for evil, that we might no longer be the slaves of sin.

        7For when a man dies, he is freed (loosed, delivered) from [the power of] sin [among men].

        8Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him,

        9Because we know that Christ (the Anointed One), being once raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has power over Him.

        10For by the death He died, He died to sin [ending His relation to it] once for all; and the life that He lives, He is living to God [in unbroken fellowship with Him].

        11Even so consider yourselves also dead to sin and your relation to it broken, but alive to God [living in unbroken fellowship with Him] in Christ Jesus.

        12Let not sin therefore rule as king in your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies, to make you yield to its cravings and be subject to its lusts and evil passions.

        13Do not continue offering or yielding your bodily members [and [a]faculties] to sin as instruments (tools) of wickedness. But offer and yield yourselves to God as though you have been raised from the dead to [perpetual] life, and your bodily members [and [b]faculties] to God, presenting them as implements of righteousness.

        14For sin shall not [any longer] exert dominion over you, since now you are not under Law [as slaves], but under grace [as subjects of God's favor and mercy].

        15What then [are we to conclude]? Shall we sin because we live not under Law but under God's favor and mercy? Certainly not!

        16Do you not know that if you continually surrender yourselves to anyone to do his will, you are the slaves of him whom you obey, whether that be to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience which leads to righteousness (right doing and right standing with God)?

        17But thank God, though you were once slaves of sin, you have become obedient with all your heart to the standard of teaching in which you were instructed and to which you were committed.

        18And having been set free from sin, you have become the servants of righteousness (of conformity to the divine will in thought, purpose, and action).

        19I am speaking in familiar human terms because of your natural limitations. For as you yielded your bodily members [and [c]faculties] as servants to impurity and ever increasing lawlessness, so now yield your bodily members [and [d]faculties] once for all as servants to righteousness (right being and doing) [which leads] to sanctification.

        20For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness.

        21But then what benefit (return) did you get from the things of which you are now ashamed? [None] for the end of those things is death.

        22But now since you have been set free from sin and have become the slaves of God, you have your present reward in holiness and its end is eternal life.

        23For the wages which sin pays is death, but the [bountiful] free gift of God is eternal life through (in union with) Jesus Christ our Lord.

      We are all bigots to them; those of us who believe in God and believe what he says because it goes against their very purpose of living. That's why the homosexual agenda is so arrogant, because if they were not, they would not get what they want.

      For those of who call our self Christian let us not forget there is on one unforgivable sin and that is blasphemy of the Holy Ghost. I agree with most of the content of this article, Paul the Apostle said the law is for the lawless, therefore they should not be permitted to serve openly. As an American much as I hate the sin, I struggle with the quote (Secular Government being involved period, for sure the Federal Government, I think this is really a States rights issue). I do not think the Federal Government had any Constitutional right to force State to repeal their Sodomy laws. If you don't like the State your living in move or work to change the State law.

      I know I am rambling and jumping around, As a Christian we are to living by GOD'S Word. Homosexuality is a sin according to the Bible. It should be treated as any other sin. And the Word should be applied and consulted in this matter of the sin itself. So this is where I take issue with many of the modern Churches, they wink at all sin these days and rely on the false doctrine of once saved always saved. Don't have time to go into detail. The following scripture in Romans will sum what I am try to say better than all I have written.

        • glennTX1966

          Your lack of comprehension and understanding the meaning of a word is sad and may be you should use the computer your on to check the true meaning of a word, not what you want it mean.

          Blasphemy is irreverence[1] toward holy personages, religious artifacts, customs, and beliefs. The Abrahamic religions condemn blasphemy vehemently. Some countries have laws to punish blasphemy,[2] while others have laws to give recourse to those who are offended by blasphemy. Those laws may discourage blasphemy as a matter of blasphemous libel,[3] vilification of religion,[4][5] religious insult,[6] or hate speech.[7]

          Actually, you are the one that is uneducated on the matter. To begin with, anyone can post anything on Wikipedia, so I would not stake my faith on what I read there.

          Secondly, there is no real homosexual activity in the animal kingdom. I have spent years studying this and the incidents of a male mounting another male has nothing to do with sex. They are acts of dominance and submissions. Many animals have social hierarchies and these behaviors are used to establish one's place in that hierarchy.

          Lastly, some of the best sexually adjusted people are those that were raised and live on farms. They understand what sex is about and learn a healthy respect for it. If you did some further studying, you will find that the overwhelming majority of sex crimes are committed by people that have had little to no experience with farms or animals. All they know is what they learn on the streets, TV and movies, and trust me, none of them portray a normal healthy sexual education.

    • crewchieff

      Homosexuality is a lie, it is a lie that has been planted for centuries, the reason why that these people become homosexuals is because whether or not they want to confront and admit the truth, they were sexually abused as children...Homosexuals cannot reproduce so therefore they have to "indoctranate" people into their lifestyle, because as the APA discovered by admissions of former Homosexuals, is that, people become Homosexuals because the Government will grant them special priviledges, and fund their lifestyle so that they don't have to go out and work a real job...this fact is being covered up

      • dubious

        Crewchieff,
        Am I reading you correctly? Your statement that the APA discovered by admissions of former Homosexuals that they became homosexual because of the Government???? Our Government is out of control, but .......really, crewchieff

          It is a way to further divide our nation, tear us apart as a nation...we have a minister in Greybull that believes this is o.k. and so is abortion..needless to say, she does not really like me...gee, I feel badly!

    • TheEkstaza

      Stop it Rita, you're making too much sense. Unfortunately many of the "christians" here are to busy judging and hating their neighbor to remember their religion calls for just the opposite. But then again, christianity also condems gays. I guess they are being honest about what their religion says. Even if it shows how conflicting it is.

      • Black9

        God did not tell us to compromise on what he said, If he said it's wrong, then it is. sound like you need to stop leaning to your own understanding, and start leaning to God.

        • Rounder

          Did God tell YOU to judge? Or did he reserve that for himself.

        • dubious

          Rounder,
          Great response. Man was created free, he had only one law "do not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil". Why? Because it was not intended for man to decide what was good and what was evil. The answer is:
          GOD RESERVED JUDGEMENT FOR HIMSELF. Bless you for your astute observation.

        • Brandon

          Haha, nice judging a judger, judger.

          YES, God did tell us to judge right from wrong and you ARE WRONG ! ! !

          The question hasn't been answered. What did God say about making judgements? Did he say YOU could, or did he reserve that for himself

      • TheColonel

        To say that homosexuality is sinful is not to hate homosexuals. And the proscription against homosexuality is not simply because "they" are different. Others here have cited Paul to the Romans. In brief, Paul's bottom line is in verse 26-27 of chapter 1 wherein he uses a word twice that is found nowhere else in the New Testament. The most literally accurate translation today is the NASB. (Recommendation: read the entire first chapter.) As a brief preface, here is v. 18: "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all UNGODLINESS AND UNRIGHTEOUSNESS OF MEN, WHO SUPPRESS THE TRUTH IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS,..." Then, vv. 26-7: "For this reason God gave them [i.e., see above] over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural FUNCTION for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural FUNCTION of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another,..." So, neither Paul (nor God) are not concerned that a homosexual "desires" someone of the same gender; more fundamentally, it's simply a violation of God's design. Furthermore, Paul is being entirely consistent with the Old Testament (Lev. 18:22).

        • TheColonel

          Sorry. The next to the last sentence should read, "So, neither Paul (nor God) are concerned that a homosexual....."

      • rocky

        I am told we should love all people but we don't have to agree with their life style, or condone it either. Yes it is hard to be straight and still show respect for those who don't show God and those who don't believe in God, respect. All people are broken, but much of it is chosen, not inflicted. That is why it is an abomination to God.

      • Sheila

        Why flaunt sex of any kind? Don't remember going to school to learn about heterosexual sex either. If it's supposed to stay in the bedroom (as they promoted this), why should I know what you are? Why would you let homosexuality define you?

        • TheEkstaza

          When I have a girlfriend, I like for everyone to know it. When people get married, they want to share that happy day with their friends and family. Why would you think gay people are any different than the rest of us. It's not all about sex you know. Just like us they fall in love and share their lives together.

      • don

        the act is an abomination the person do in the act is not being judged only the act, God loves the person and wants them to repent, turn away from the abomination and sin no more!!

    • Black9

      So what you are saying the word of God is a lie.

      • Rounder

        Nope. What I"m saying is that you're trying to understand God, and I don't think that's possible.

    • ALOFA

      HOMOSEXUAL life style is a CHOSE. It is NOT NORMAL and it is UN-NATURAL. Hey Rita. You better start reading and studying the WORD. The Bible said, And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. In other words, REWARD DUE. IT IS A CHOSE. Every thing that you do in life is a CHOSE. Even as a Christian. IS a CHOSE. John 3:16 said, For GOD so loved the world, that HE gave HIS ONLY begotten SON, that WHOSOEVER believe in HIM should NOT PERISH, but have everlasting life. The KEY word here is BELIEVE IN HIM. Meaning, it is your CHOSE to BELIEVE or NOT to BELIEVE. Just because GOD loves the world, does not mean that the world BELIEVES in JESUS. Read and Study the WORD Rita, before you open your mouth without understanding and have any knowledge of the WORD. Hey Rita. STUDY.

      • Rounder

        Did God say YOU should judge? Did God say you should LOVE everyone? I'm not seeing much love in your message.

        • protectourchildren

          Rounder, you are only seeing what YOU want to see. You see only when we are sinning and know in our hearts we are sinning but don't want to change do we become so very defensive. The TRUTH convicts us and it at first feels like it is ripping our heart apart. God has commanded us to judge His right from wrong, if it is an abomination to Him, it should also be an abomination to us. Yes, He did say we should LOVE everyone BUT He also said we should love the sinner but NOT the sin. No, you will not see the love in a believer's statements especially when he/she is quoting to you Scripture because you are blinded to that Truth. To see that Truth YOU MUST BELIEVE and you must believe its (the Word) it's entirety not pick and choose what you want to believe. Choosing what you want to believe is called idolitry because you are making your own god not believing in the one and only TRUE GOD. I believe that is what ALOFA is trying to tell you, and I don't see the "hate" you are seeing in that reply.

        • KenC

          You keep posting this as if you can't judge between right and wrong and still love. I discipline my children because I love them. God disciplines us because He loves us. You keep trying to seperate the two. Read Romans Chapter 12. Loving someone doesn't mean that you can't judge between right and wrong.

      • gorgar

        ALOFA, all I can say is put down the crack pipe. You need to do a little studying yourself, uhhh like english maybe? It really makes YOU look totally uneducated. Or perhaps you are foreign..... And, if you think homosexuality is a choice you don't know ANY gay people.

        I would suggest to you all, there is a surgery for internal hemorrhoids(sp); I can tell you after two of them it is quite painful and you will be dealing with a lot of embarrassment as you age if you are gay...yep you will......it only makes sense medically...the homos better read up on what happens as we age from surgery and how we lead our lifestyle...could be a bit, let us say, painful and cannot get help to relieve the pain.

    • Robert

      I am sorry but Homosexuals DO MAKE THE CHOISE . God is really out of the picture on this one . We know what the Bible tells us in plain terms. The fact of nature sets the rule of natural selection means that since they can not reproduce they would have died out long ago.
      Boy + Boy = 0
      Girl + Girl = 0

      As to why they would chose this is not the problem . The problem is that they know that it is not right . They make all the trouble by trying to get everyone else to tell them it is OK .
      I do not care if they want to have sex with each other , sheep , dogs ,or a toaster oven . Just KEEP IT TO YOURSELVES and stay away from our kids (unless their name is Billy and he has horns).

      • Rounder

        So, Robert, if that's the case, why do we still find many examples of homosexuality in nature?

        • SilverBullets

          You are confusing dominance displays two or more animals of ANY gender combination engaging in displays of dominance. Dear God, I can hear it now...next thing you know, the perverts will be claiming that S&M is "normal" because it occurs in nature! Absurd examples of anthropomorphism in the extreme. The by-product of an immature and irrational mind.

        • SilverBullets

          Kindly allow me to clarify my post above: Rounder is confusing his so-called version of homosexuality with dominance displays. And I meant S&D (Submission & Dominance) not S&M. Though these perverse, godless people will stop at nothing to rationalize their deviant behavior as "normal"

    • Charles Ike

      Rita, It is the Christian Bible that had the quotations above. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ hates, discriminates homosexuality. A true Christian is one who hears with understanding by the help of the Holy Spirit, acknowledges they are sinners even as you never done anything or anyone any harm, the Bible says in "sin we were conceived and have all sinned and fallen short of the Kingdom of God. Believing this sets one on the right path to becoming saved. Then repent of your SIN, tell Satan that you no longer belong to him, that you are voting for Jesus. Ask God to send you His Spirit and make you whole. Thank God for the Spirit and welcome the Spirit into your life and tell Him you rely on His leadings all the rest of your life. Thank and praise the Lord. Rita, you hjave to do this to be truly "born again." and no matter what sexual orientation the one is, God will straighten the one. Note: have someone that is born again to lead you through this and the one will be a witness and a mentor. You will blessed for it in Jesus name.

    • MAJOR DAD

      God cannot sin or do evil; He is perfectly pure and holy in all ways. To say that homosexuals didn't choose the way that they are carries on a lie that they came up with themselves. To believe their line that God made them that way basically makes God and Satan the same Being. With our human weaknesses since the fall of Adam and Eve we are all tempted by the devil to commit acts which are against God's Will and Commandments. God didn't make us to violate His Will but Adam and Eve's sin weakened all of their progeny and opened Pandora's box to the whole gamut of sinful temptations and acts, of which homosexuality is only one. Don't fall for the lies coming out of the "gay" community. By their acts and words they hate God anyway. Do you want to be a part of that, or to support it?

    • David

      Rita, the first message without hatred, bigotry and a reflection of ignorance. Thank you for speaking up. Because I am a gay man and did not choose to be this, I appreciate your speaking out. I served our country during the Viet Nam period. I was not in combat so I didn't have to experience the horrors of combat that so many of our men and women did and still have to deal with. Gay people have been in the military from the beginning of time. Charlotte saying how very sad it is that 10% of the population is homosexual. Charlotte, please do some research and learn what homosexuality his and how it happens. I am not ashamed of being gay any more than Charlotte is probably ashamed of being ignorant. It is just how God made us. So, folks, the gays in the military are going to be doing an excellant job for our country. You have no idea how many from the past have given their lives so that you can bash them and the ones of us who are alive now.
      Thank you again, Rita.

      • Guest

        I bet to differ with you David. If God made you this way, he would not have written what he did in his BOOK, the Bible...why that would be hyypocrotoca of our Lord. He says we have to love you, he does not say we have to accept your behaviors and choices and I won't, don't and it is weakening our nation.

    • J. Shirley Cowan

      Rita, if you are indeed a Christian, then you'd see that God said that homosexuality is an abomination....this means that the practice should be discouraged....we should pray for our friends who are homosexuals..not condemn them...nevertheless...I don't think the practice should be taught in the schools...the schools should have nothing to do with that part of our lives....

    • IrishCowboy

      you are as wrong as day is light and night is dark...... IT IS A CHOICE,..... no different then the choice to either rob a bank or not rob a bank. There have been times I have been tempted even to take a small item from work, I could claim I was born that way, in that sense, I was, for I was born into sin, but I have the choice to either bend to that temptation and go ahead and rob the bank, steal your TV or car, or to put that sin aside, and let you keep your belongings and everyone else can keep their belongings too. I CHOOSE NOT TO SIN, AND I CHOOSE NOT TO CONDONE ANYONE ELSE THAT CHOOSES TO DO THESE NASTY THINGS...... IT IS NOTHING BUT A CHOICE, AND BY PUSHING IT, CRAMMING IT DOWN OTHER PEOPLES THROATS, DOES NOT MAKE IT RIGHT, NO MATTER HOW MANY LAWS ARE PASSED......... NEXT YOU WILL BE WANTING TO MAKE PEDOPHILE A LEGAL ACT, SAYING THAT YOU WERE BORN THAT WAY......
      word of advice, teaching a child about homosexuality as being OKay, is nothing less then child endangerment and providing pornography to a minor, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, so forth and so on..... if a heterosexual person was teaching these children how men and women do it, they would be locked up for just that......

      I have heard people say. they knew they was "gay" when they were 4 or 5, HOGWASH...... WHO TAUGHT THEM? THEY NEED TO BE LOCKED UP FOR CHILD MOLESTATION AND THE REST OF THOSE NASTY ACTS.

      YOU TOUCH ONE OF MY CHILDREN, GRANDCHILDREN, NIECES, NEPHEWS, (any one related to me in any way shape or form) you will be finding yourself trying to figure out how to get back from Tenbucktwo...... those that are sailors, better not get found out, or they will not see their next port call after they enter into the international waters....

      There are such things as generational curses. When you come to Christ many of these curses can be broken. The Times Square Church in NYC attracts many queers who come dressed up in full regalia. But the ones who keep coming all of a sudden, they change their dress, they change everything about themselves. Sometimes for whatever reason, they are not delivered from this abomination. You are not condemned for being a homosexual, but for practicing homosexuality. It is always a choice of behavior. I am not married any longer. Today sex is expected on dates, even the first one. I choose to follow my Lord. I remain alone, but I am not sorry. I would not want to sin in this way.

    • Skyknight

      That's a crock of BS, it's a choice and a bad choice. I suspect that there will be a far greater percentage of gays that get killed in combat when they come out in the open.

    • W Smith

      True!...............................Why would anyone choose to hate, discriminate and prey upon the innocent in lust of human waste? I have never lifted a finger against them to this day except in words written. But they will not relent; they have no respect except for that which cannot be imagined. STOP!!! Please stop. But they will not. A line must be found that they cannot imagine. That we cannot in our worst nightmares believe. A world that promises so much threatens every last tenet held dear. We build while they tear down. The classic battle of Good versus Evil rages still. The score yet unsettled, undecided. The day though is theirs. We must again have ours.

    • Stephen

      Rita, who are you kidding!!!???

    • Lee J

      Rita - Are saying that God is wrong when He said that homosexuality is an abomination and punishable by death? Who are you to place yourself over Him of think you know better than He does? If you are a Christian, then you should learn to accept what God says as absolute truth If you can't do that, then I would re-examine your faith and try to figure out who you really believe in more, God or yourself.

    • etexfisherman48

      Rita you are so wrong God did not create people to be gay so he could enjoy killing them. To accept this position is deny all that God stands for so I suggest you if you are a believer pray and repent of this evil position you have taken. Stop and think about it, when God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of rampant homosexuality he gave every opportunity he could to spare these people even yielding to Abraham several times to find at least 10 people that were righteous but there wasn't. To be a Christian means to be Christ-like and your position is ungodly with all its ramifications that accompany such a position as yours. You have put your trust in the creature instead of the creator, which is obvious because if you had a sincere fervent prayer life and studied God's word you would know better.

      Being homosexual is a choice. Just as is deciding to murder another human , to commit adultery, to become a thief.
      This false and preposterous lie that people are born homosexuals is yet another attempt by the liberal left to justify
      "everyone has rights" You got rights to do anything you want to ! Homosexuals do have one right the same as all
      humans. The right to make the decision to be a Christian or not. Those who choose the lifestyle of a homosexual
      have not chosen to be Christians. They have chosen an abomination.

    • protectourchildren

      Rita, this is the kind of thinking that has led our country down the slippery slope it is on. Making excuses for sin and sitting back and letting these people, lost souls that they are, have free reign with our children will result in disaster. "Gay" people do choose to be "gay", as you choose to commit the sins you do. Our hearts as humans are bent to sin and that is what these people have chosen to do and unless they repent and confess their SIN they do have their place in HELL.

      • Guest

        How many remember the toddler that was adopted by gays; he was abused sexually, tormented with their deviant sexual perversions..oh yes, it was hushed up quickly but this little one will never forget it and will never be totally "free" just as when there is incest in a home..I know, been there, still there and will die there. To let these abominations loose with babies, my gosh what is wrong with us?

      You are very, very wrong. People lead immoral lifestyles because they have become their own gods and follow their own desires and aimlessly seek fulfillment that will never come until they repent and seek God with all their hearts, souls, and mind. Homsexuality is a behavior - one which God abhors - God is the same yesterday, today and forever. Just because our society wants us to accept behavior that is contrary to God's word does not and never will make it right.

    • sylviacroft

      I feel exceeding grieved for the poor lost souls of the homosexuals, but that does not mean we should allow their perverted ways (and that's what God calls them) to be taught and held up to our children or young people as normal. They are opening teaching in our colleges that people owe it to themselves to try sex with both men and women before they make up their minds, and the best of both worlds is to be bi-sexual. At University of Florida a few years ago they had a "health fair" where in one of the booths they were giving away man-to-man condoms. The girls were wearing condom earrings, etc. What is it with this open flouting of having sex with as many people as you can like it's a sporting event? Even if you are heterosexual or homosexual it is sickening to brag about your free-sex experiences. But doesn't the Word of God say it will come to the place where they call evil good and good evil? And also that people will be proud of what they should be ashamed of?

    • Brainiac

      Rita: Thank you for having the nerve to speak the truth to all these "self-righteous/uneducated" christians. Approximately 10% of the world's population has been gay since the beginning of recorded history. Most of these Gay Bashers will learn once they have a gay person born into their family(not necessarily all of them) Gay people are made that way by God and God don't make no trash. The men(Notice that no women were allowed to contribute to the contents of the bible) that wrote the "Books" of the bible were selected by a king that knew even less about he writings than those of whose work he reviewed for inclusion . You are very right in that nobody would assume a gay lifestyle unless they are driven by the same desires as heterosexuals meaning that men are attracted to other men and women are attracted to other women just as strongly as heterosexuals are attracted to the opposite sex. That is the primary reason for all the gay bashing because most of them think that if you don't feel the same as they do that you are a willing sinner.

      • prsmith

        So much for your credibility. You have clearly never read the Bible. Ever hear of Ester? Ruth? Those are the main players since there are books written by them but there are hundreds of women who play critical and featured roles in the Bible.

        Your opinion about 'gay bashing' is noted but you have not a single source to support your position. We have the Word of God which tells us that the lifestyle is an abomination and that we should love the sinner but hate the sin. I'm afraid you're just going to have to deal with it.

      • Runninbear

        First you are wrong and you lead those who need the truth away from the facts?
        I guess you never heard of Debra or Hulda or Phoebe?

If god made Gays where does he say that in the bible ? that's right in your ignorance shows your lack of understanding so you make up your lies to spread and to lead away from the true word WRITTEN BY GOD! There has been more written about this sexual behavior than any other sin or subject in the bible and you haven't read it ?I have read my Bible 8 times and I'm half way through it again and I have yet to read where My God Made Homosexuals?
        Just show me where it is written?................................................
        I have 2 step sisters and a niece that are gay and not either of them have ever said or blamed God for making me this way?They have made a choice that our God gave us the second greatest gift "FREE WILL"maybe you need to stop and read it again with understanding and not from a bias pro homosexual stand point as you have claim to have read that God created gays?and if that were true why aren't there more of them?Its not an INNATE behavior ?IT IS A FREE CHOICE OF YOUR OWN REPROBATE MIND?

    • Michael Wells

      I am not going to debate whether someone is born that way or not. Bottom line is this, we as Christians all have temptations, some differing from others, that we have to harness and control. Sex is not different. I am married and I see women, younger than myself, that I maybe attracted and maybe available to me; do I act on it? Of course not. I am a human and not an animal. I am a free moral agent who can choose right over wrong. There are literally thousands of cases of homosexuals that have reverted back to being straight, this can be done. Lastly, if there are folks that are homosexuals that cannot make it back to being straight, then abstain. You are trading the fleeting pleasures of sin for life of condemnation instead of an eternity in Heaven with our Creator. For those that will say, "well God wants us to be happy"; yes he wants us to be happy. That is why is commandments are not burdensome and also in our best interests. It is in childish rebellion that we lack the discipline required to live a Godly life. If as free moral agents, we could behave however we wanted or pick what parts of God's word we wish to follow; the I will close by asking you this, why did Jesus come to earth and die on the Cross in the first place?

    • Joe

      Why would anybody choose to be a pedophile? Not only hated, discriminated against, called sinners, etc., but *jailed*, too! So, by your logic, nobody would choose to be a pedophile; therefore we must cease to "hate, discriminate...etc." pedophiles....Which would, of course, remove any disincentive to *be* a pedophile, so that, yes, people *might* then "choose" to be one...for the hell of it.
      Your reasoning is circular. And your reference to Christianity misses a huge point - or, rather, two points. First, we are taught to love the sinner but hate the sin; that does NOT mean we must or should give up on 3000 years of Western culture. Second, Christianity is about forgiveness, but forgiveness and redemption require, FIRST OF ALL, an acknowledgment of wrongdoing, and a resolve to stop. Jesus didn't tell the adulteress "Don't worry about it, go do your thing." He said "Go and SIN NO MORE". Don't see a lot of that kind of thing among the homosexuals, do ya?

    • glennTX1966

      For those of who call our self Christian let us not forget there is only one unforgivable sin and that is blasphemy of the Holy Ghost. I agree with most of the content of the article, Paul the Apostle said the law is for the lawless, therefore they should not be permitted to serve openly. As an American much as I hate the sin, I struggle with the quote (Secular Government being involved period, for sure the Federal Government, I think this is really a States rights issue). I do not think the Federal Government had any Constitutional right to force States to repeal their Sodomy laws. If you don’t like the State your living in move or work to change the State law.

      I know I am rambling and jumping around, As a Christian we are to live by GOD’S Word. Homosexuality is a sin according to the Bible. It should be treated as any other sin. And the Word should be applied and consulted in this matter of the sin itself. So this is where I take issue with many of the modern Churches, they wink at all sin these days and rely on the false doctrine of once saved always saved or they say I do not believe that a loving God would send any one to hell? Don’t have time to go into detail. For example what about the sin of fornication? This is very rampant in our nation today, some of the same Churches condemning the sin of Homosexual is sweeping the sin of fornication under the rug, making excuses for it. Like handing out condoms and say we cannot prevent it? For those of you who do not know the definition of fornication:
      1. voluntary sexual intercourse outside marriage
      2. voluntary sexual intercourse between two persons of the opposite sex, where one is or both are unmarried
      3. Bible sexual immorality in general, esp adultery

      I am not the Judge (God is the Righteous Judge). The Word of God therefore judges us now. Note John 1:1 The Word is God and God is The Word. With that in mind America’s Churches must all repent for not taking a stand against SIN period.

    • Jeff

      Rita,
      It is not true that people are born gay. To believe that is to say God is a liar. However, the harassing people who are gay must stop. I can't stand this so called "righteous indignation" by bigoted religious people.

    • James C. Harrison

      Do adulterers choose to be adulterers, or do they accidentally fall into it. Like any other sin, it is wrong, and they know it at least until somebody keeps justifying it to them and they finally rationalize that it's OK. Pat Robertson must have convinced a lot of people that it is OK to divorce your spouse if he or she has Alzheimers. What happened to "Til death do us part"? Sin is transgression of God's law. Yes we are all sinners. Some of us sinners are saved by grace. "What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? (Romans 6:1-2). Perversion can only be condoned in a pluralistic society. So, stop condoning it, my fellow Christians?

    • glennTX1966

      The following scripture in Romans will sum what I am trying to say better than all I have written.

      Romans Chapter 6 Amplified Version

      1WHAT SHALL we say [to all this]? Are we to remain in sin in order that God’s grace (favor and mercy) may multiply and overflow?

      2Certainly not! How can we who died to sin live in it any longer?

      3Are you ignorant of the fact that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?

      4We were buried therefore with Him by the baptism into death, so that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious [power] of the Father, so we too might [habitually] live and behave in newness of life.

      5For if we have become one with Him by sharing a death like His, we shall also be [one with Him in sharing] His resurrection [by a new life lived for God].

      6We know that our old (unrenewed) self was nailed to the cross with Him in order that [our] body [which is the instrument] of sin might be made ineffective and inactive for evil, that we might no longer be the slaves of sin.

      7For when a man dies, he is freed (loosed, delivered) from [the power of] sin [among men].

      8Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him,

      9Because we know that Christ (the Anointed One), being once raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has power over Him.

      10For by the death He died, He died to sin [ending His relation to it] once for all; and the life that He lives, He is living to God [in unbroken fellowship with Him].

      11Even so consider yourselves also dead to sin and your relation to it broken, but alive to God [living in unbroken fellowship with Him] in Christ Jesus.

      12Let not sin therefore rule as king in your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies, to make you yield to its cravings and be subject to its lusts and evil passions.

      13Do not continue offering or yielding your bodily members [and [a]faculties] to sin as instruments (tools) of wickedness. But offer and yield yourselves to God as though you have been raised from the dead to [perpetual] life, and your bodily members [and [b]faculties] to God, presenting them as implements of righteousness.

      14For sin shall not [any longer] exert dominion over you, since now you are not under Law [as slaves], but under grace [as subjects of God's favor and mercy].

      15What then [are we to conclude]? Shall we sin because we live not under Law but under God’s favor and mercy? Certainly not!

      16Do you not know that if you continually surrender yourselves to anyone to do his will, you are the slaves of him whom you obey, whether that be to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience which leads to righteousness (right doing and right standing with God)?

      17But thank God, though you were once slaves of sin, you have become obedient with all your heart to the standard of teaching in which you were instructed and to which you were committed.

      18And having been set free from sin, you have become the servants of righteousness (of conformity to the divine will in thought, purpose, and action).

      19I am speaking in familiar human terms because of your natural limitations. For as you yielded your bodily members [and [c]faculties] as servants to impurity and ever increasing lawlessness, so now yield your bodily members [and [d]faculties] once for all as servants to righteousness (right being and doing) [which leads] to sanctification.

      20For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness.

      21But then what benefit (return) did you get from the things of which you are now ashamed? [None] for the end of those things is death.

      22But now since you have been set free from sin and have become the slaves of God, you have your present reward in holiness and its end is eternal life.

      23For the wages which sin pays is death, but the [bountiful] free gift of God is eternal life through (in union with) Jesus Christ our Lord.

      People do chose to be Gay. Homosexualaity is a branch off the tree of adultry, if someone is weak with this desire they can go to God to be healed from this, if they do not go to God they choose it, God does not born abominations.

    • Sugar

      There is NO gay gene. Proven - It is a choice. Christians believe the Bible because it is God's very word. You can see it clearly in the scriptures. You need to read the Bible if you are a Christian; Sodom and Gomorrah. What did God do to it and why? Because it became desperately wicked and when is the line drawn? Homosexuality enters in.

    • Guest

      Rita,

      In today's world it is glamorized and many do not understand the whole of homosexuality...perhaps you need to get better informed and start with the Bible.

    • Frank C

      Rita, what kind of Christian are you? If you use the same Bible I use, it says God did not make man gay, it is a choice.
      A choice they made for what ever reason, and they are lost. Yes, we are to pray for them that they would wake up and realize what they are doing is wrong. And we are to hate the sin not the sinner. But in the military you can't have this kind of behaviior.

    • Phil Lake

      Sorry Rita, but you are wrong. NO ONE is born "gay". It is a lifestyle that they can refuse to live by but thier weakness outweighs thier ability to do the right thing. They choose to be the way they are, and much worse, they are trying everything in satan's arsenal to convince the rest of the world that it is okay.

    • Deborah Ross

      I believe what the Word of God says and I stand on that. NKJV: 1Corinthians6:9-10.....(9)Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be decieved. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites
      God declares homosexuality as sin and sin is a choice. The above words are not mine but come from the One who is above all. There is hope for all of the above if one repents and asks for forgiveness and turns away from that sin. But all of it comes by a choice that one makes.

      I know that I will get a lot of mad comments from some people who claim I'm being judgemental. But I didn't write the Bible. Maybe you ought to take it up with the One who did. And you will one day. Everyone will have their day in court. That is assured. I am not afraid of what you say about me. In fact, I count your persecution as a blessing. So go ahead, throw your punches. It won't hurt me.

    • mary mason

      they do decide to be gay. god does not, does not approve of gays. he says in the bible two of the same sex should not lie together as a man and a women does. God definately does not approve.leviticus: 18:22.

    • Fred

      You need to research my Sister. Homosexuality is for the most part, environmental. Not that there are not those who have the proclivity for the addicition; and that's what it is, sexual addiction. I agree that you should hate the sin, not the sinner since Jesus didn't. But to allow them to establish social status as 'normal' is a disservice to the rest of the population. Answer me this, if they are born that way, then why have ministries such as Brooklyn Tabernacle, Focus on the Family and Oakcliff Bible Fellowship been successful in turning literally THOUSANDS of homosexuals away from the lifestyle, using only Scripture, the love of Jesus, counselling and support. It's a sexual addiction, not something you're born with like your race. You will never be successful at making a black person not be black, an oriental person not be oriental or an Asian stop being asian(Why would you want too?); but you CAN counsel a homosexual out of that horror that binds them.

    • Runninbear

      Gays have been here since Sodom and Gomorrah,But you claim they don't choose to be this way. Is a lie? there i said it?There is no gene or any innate behavior that can predispose one to be a homosexual? as much as you and others would like to say and have doctors back you up there is no evidence that has been discovered.Didn't you read what this article said and the words of God has written?
      If there was any gene or predisposition to being gay they would have come up with it long ago.Like Vin Diesel is a twin and his twin isn't gay?If this was an innate behavior and we all would be predisposed to be gay?
      I don't bash gays but I don't like what our country has become because of the the influence and money the gays have given to a down-low homosexual president that has unlawfully broken his oath and choose to dictate to us what laws he will and won't enforce?
      I have two step sisters and a niece that are gay and I don't judge them that's Gods job? but I don't have to allow our children to be exposed to this immoral sexuality to recruit more members for your homosexual club for your unaccepted social sexual lusts?
      You don't see any heterosexuality flaunting their sexual behavior to make every one follow and accept their natural ways,but you want to force our children to practices and be familiar with your lingo,(like snoodling)acts that has brought aids and death to many who were Unaware of those of you who are gay or you on the down-low,or Bisexual and as for you being a christian you have need that you be taught again.from someone who knows the word,because if you are gay,homosexual,on the down-low , bisexual or sex with children or animals you are an "Abomanation to GOD!"
      Maybe you should read this part again:
      And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased(reprobate mind) to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God’s decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.”
      And I want to add attack on DOMA is nothing but an attempt to get them more money from those "life partners that die of AIDS and can't be considered a legal beneficialary to their gains (Mammon)?

    • Runninbear

      The very argument that gays are borne that way is a lie? There is nothing innate about homosexuality? Dr. Dean Hamer who failed to find a "gay gene": said"Homosexuality is not purely genetic. Environmental factors play a role. There is not a single master gene that makes people gay. I don't think that we will ever be able to predict who will be gay." If they were a "gay gene there would be more of them.British researchers generated comparable results in an identical-twin study. Their conclusion? The suprisingly low odds that both twins were homosexual.The study by them: "confirmed that genetic factors are insufficient explanation for the development of sexual orientation."Homosexual attraction, like many other strong attractions, includes both biological,and environmental influences. Scientific attempts to demonstrate that homosexual attraction is biologically determined have failed.Breedlove, a researcher at the University of California at Berkeley, demonstrated that sexual behavior has an effect on the brain. Breed love also states:
      "These findings give us proof for what we theoretically know to be the case -- that sexual experience can alter the structure of the brain, just as genes can alter it.
      These are studies from researcher that have tried to prove the "Gay Gene theory" and have proved that Homosexuality is a choice that is influenced by other factors,and not a gay gene,or the fallacy that "I was born gay" is a lie, that gays want heterosexuals to accept them and promote their socially unaccepted life styles?

  • Voice of Reason

    It's in THE BOOK! Either you believe it or you don't. This is TRUTH in its purest form. Thank you for having the courage to state it as it is.

    • Positivity is Key

      THE BOOK...mmmm there are many other things written in that book that you skim over in your daily life.

    • Runninbear

      It is written that if you have a different doctrine or teaching,then Gods laws have no power over you,and he will give you over to a reprobate mind and your own imaginations to do what ever you "Choose" to do?..But If you are trying to claim you are a Christian and are gay then you are trying to force your socially unaccepted life style on those who do obey Gods teachings? and that just makes you just as big a bigot and a Hippocrates as those that have been bashing gays.

  • ARMYOF69

    "Fragging" could happen very easily now , if any of these openly gay military personnel piss off any heterosexual soldier.

    • nik

      lets all hope heterosexual soldiers respect longstanding military tradition and reserve fragging for killing their officers.

      • El Lobo Feo

        We have a longstanding tradition of keeping Gays out of the military. As the Army was quartered at Valley Forge, Gen. George Washington drummed out a "sodomite" from the ranks.

    • Everett Good

      Speaking as a US Navy veteran that served in submarines in the 'stoneage of nuclear power', I am really saddened. We were volunteers, an elite group, and knew it. Anybody that didn't fit in was transferred, a note in his service record stated "Emotionally unsuitable for submarine duty".
      There is absolutely no privacy on a submarine for enlisted personnel. We were screened to eliminate those that might panic in an emergence situation, which could easily cause loss of the vessel, or injury or death.
      Homosexuals want to be a 'protected species', and will obviously sue if they might be judged 'unfit for submarine duty'.
      regardless of their infraction.

    • SilverBullets

      Until reading your post, I had never heard the term before and still could not be sure from the various posts what the term "fragging" meant. So I googled it. For those of you as equally in the dark as I was, fragging is defined as: the deliberate killing of (an unpopular senior officer), typically with a hand grenade. Apparently over time, the term has evolved to include the enlisted as well.

    • REASON 1

      Those references are NOT the words of GOD but of Moses and Paul and quotes of Jesus are out of context. You obviously haven't read much of Jesus teachings but have relied on what you have been taught. The dictionary defines 'Abomination" as a term used by Egyptians to describe the experience of eating with Shepherds as DISTASTEFUL because of the smell on their clothes and sandals which permeated the atmosphere of the dinner. NOT a SIN. Jesus describes the end times as 2 men in the same bed and one will be taken and the other left. Which one will be taken and why? Which one will be left and why? Certainly neither will be taken for being Homosexual. I'm also certain that Gay's served at the same time as you but because of your ATTITUDE you were in NO DANGER of ever being propositioned by any of them. They join together because of a mutual POSITIVE ATTITUDE , not for the purpose of just having SEX with anyone, especially someone like you. If anyone is SICK IT IS YOU who forms opinions by random GOSSIP by people who claim to know GOD's WORD but actually DON'T.

      Well, like I have heard, and this was years ago when this protected little farm girl knew nothing of this lifestyle, my husband to be said, we lost a man overboard..did not recover him...the military will take care of the matter as they see fit. To have Petraeus and the higher ups demand this for the military, they should be cast upon a piece of concrete and stoned.

      The Bible also says, I cannot quote the scripture passage..TBI problems, that those that teach falsely shall be held accountable twice as those that have other sins; it also says, paraphrased of course, when you have learned that something is wrong and you continue to accept, promote, live it, you will face harshness from the Lord.

      • Guest

        This lifestyle used to be called "sodomy" and lascivious acts and were punishable with long terms in jail and high fines. It should have been kept that way...this has divided the nation and Putin warned our bi so called leader about this not once but twice...of course, he paid no attention for it is his job to divide this nation in every aspect possible.

        The nation is being punished as STDs and Aids virus have increased 60% with the encouragement of this lifestyle. That means high costs for Medicaid for many are on welfare of some sort and of course drain the insurance companies to force them to increase fees.

        There is a lady that has a ministry to this, cannot think of her name...she was straight, went gay and then when the Lord called her to this ministry, she answered..

  • Sheila

    I am not a God's judgement person but I do believe the brainwashing has got to stop. We keep moving over while our children are fed toxic morality. It's perversion of the day, all day, every day. Why can't they be protected now?

    • SparkGap

      Sheila - you seem to have the first reference to "judgement". Clarification on "judgement."
      In the N.T. specifically, there are two words are used for judgement: "krino" and "anakrino." . KRINO judgement is primarily exercised by the LAW GIVER, i.e. God - The Creator. This includes His authority to examine human conduct & exercise decisions of condemnation / punishment ( or release). Some limited "krino" authority is entrusted to human authority & activity. Generally, humans do not have place to "condemn" others to the eternal "lockup" of hell. (ref. Matt. 7:1)
      The other "judgement" ANAKRINO is firmly in the human realm. It is the matter of referencing to a "standard", then determining if a thing, or HUMAN CONDUCT measures up - OR NOT. A "judgement" is made, & acceptance or rejection is the result. I have done this many times in the laboratory (according to N.I.S.T. standards) with physical things. I judge (anakrino) my actions & the acts of other people (according to God's standards).
      God expects humans to make such "anakrino" judgements every day, or else injury & death follow. By God's published word, we can know that some behaviors (such as homosexuality) are NOT ACCORDING TO STANDARD, and are morally DEADLY TOXIC as well. (God has already judged "krino" such things.) We cannot plead ignorance.
      Please don't let lazy logic, popular morality, practical atheism or godless choices - make limp excuses for perversion. All sin is morally toxic, and some is extremely toxic. If "Rounder" (below) wishes to ignore God's word & to make excuses for homosexuality, "he" does so at his own peril & at the peril of those he convinces.
      To Rounder I say: Good Luck to you. If you reject God, you have nothing else to help you. Luck is all that is left.

      Sheila,

      Amen, Amen...as long as we send our youth to government schools, in this day and age, they are going to be brainwashed and homosexuality, because of the Pres being bi (this is what I think), it will get worse; we send our youth on to college/universities that teach them to be liberal in every sense of the word, to not have a conscious, "if it feels good, do it, " and now we see what we are getting..horrible, just horrible.

      The schools are mostly computerized as far as doors go; if this declares martial law, your student will be locked away from you and not allowed to call you. They say these lockdowns are for their protection. I do not think so, this is the basic message Hitler gave the students for years before he made his move and it was for their protection too. Get them out, homeschool, charter, Christian...whatever........if you love them, get them out of public school and teach them what is right and moral. An immoral nation cannot and will not survive hence the people will not either.

      so true but Jesus ssaid to love our enemies Jesus also SAID "AND i iF I BE LIFTER UP WILL DRAW ALL MEN UNTO ME" If all of these men and women were ever witnessed to by the Holy Spirit they would not be nor want to be homo sexual.Scripture says that no one can resist the Lord and If all of those who say they are Christians would ask for the baptism of water ,baptism by the Holy Spirit and then the Anointing, This world would then see The Lord In the Light which I have seen ,and fight evil with every day ,and heal the sick ,and every thing that He promisedLove Rev Larry

          This has been going on for years as far as what the actual percentage is. I remember being told in the 1980's and 1990's but I don't remember an actual source. I will say through, if they thought that people would believe it, they would probably proclaim that the precentage is around 25%. Don't be so surprise that within the next ten years or so that they do make such a statement.

    • SilverBullets

      I remember watching a documentary that studied overpopulation in rats. The experiment consisted of a colony of NORMAL rats in a confined area. Their normal routines were documented. Then one rat after was added to the colony and their behavior was documented. When the number in the colony reached a certain point...critical mass...the animals began first to fight and then begin to adopt homosexual behavior. When the population was reduced below the point of "critical mass", the rats reverted back to normal behavior!

      I saw this documentary probably about 20-25 years ago. Surely someone else remembers seeing it too. Anyone remember what the name of it was?...or who produced it?

      Ever since I saw that film, I couldn't help but notice how the homosexual communities seem to be concentrated in big cities? Maybe that's why I prefer large acreage!

HANG ME EXECUTE ME! I am happy, by my means of my mere perverted and sick existence, to give you something to irrationally hate..
      Why does anyone care what people do in bed? Do I ask YOU what you do in bed? I couldn't care less.
      Homosexual behavior has been scientifically noted in each of the above species. The only difference between them and us was that their behavior is temporary whereas ours is permanent. Do you believe in manmade global warming too? Probably. Other species engage in homosexual activity, so why does God DARE allow that? I'm Catholic and your ignorance makes me question a God.

    This is really frightening. People say that gays can't help themselves, but hell yes they can, please renounce this lifestyle before it's too late.

      Saying gays can't help themselves is the same as saying my pencil misspells the word I write.

      I wish that all of the homosexuals could be sent on dangerous missions, but remember "Little Manning", he was placed in a very safe position in a so-called Intelligence Unit.. The Military is not only accepting Homosexuality, but they celebrate it. Promotions will be based on it.

  • Real Man

    The military except maybe the chair force. They have turned into a bunch of pantywaists. There is a decimate shortage of warriors these days.

    • MAJOR DAD

      As a retired USAF officer and the son of a retired USAF officer who was a WWII pilot, I resent your implication that the USAF is at the forefront of this "gaying of the military" movement. If you care to check your facts out before you attack my branch of the military you'll find that the military point man in this travesty was Admiral McMullen, USN, Chairman of the JCS. He's an Obama rear-end kisser from way back and a pathological liar about the effects this change will have on military readiness. You owe an apology to all the good people who now serve and have served in the United States Air Force! BTW I also served three years enlisted in the U. S. Army before I followed my Father's footsteps into the USAF.

      • bobinpa.

        You are exactly correct Major. I am retired U.S. Marine Corps. I was with the first Battalion of Marines {3rd Battalion 9th Marines to land in Viet-Nam 8 March 1965 off the USS Vancouver. Went back in 67-68 in the 1st Marine Division. This Admiral McMullen , Chairman of the JCS is exactly what you called him. I am glad I retired after Viet-Nam, And do not have to serve under theseconditions today. If Homosexuality was accepted back then like it is now, I never would have joined the Marines two days out of High School. McMullen is a Weasel, And Gates went right along with the Kenyans BS. Thanks for your Service Sir. "Semper Fi".

  • j3player

    America is surely on its way out. God is holy and righteous. Unless the nation repent and turn to God through his Son Jesus, He can no longer bless this nation. This sin is a slap in God's face and He will not be mocked. The president has failed God and the nation by this abomination to God. I feel sorry for anyone in the military. The military belongs to God not Mr. Obama. For those who do not believe that God exist, be notified, he only cares for those who believe. Keep in mind, once you are face to face with him, you will believe , but it will be to late.

  • Cdub

    • bodey041

      What is very interesting and rather hypocritical about msamericanpatriot is that she has no problem with homosexuality as long as the individual agrees with her politics.

    THE TRUTH COULD NEVER BE MORE CLEARER!!!!

    Ekstaza, are you out of the closet or just peeking out of the door.

    • Brainiac

      Real Man: Ekstaza wouldn't have been in the closet in the first place except for Neanderthals like you and the rest of these "better than thou" christians. You all exhibit the superstitions of the "Witch Burners" just a couple of centuries ago. Don't fret. You gay bashers will go the way of the witch burners. It is likely that GOD created gays in order to prevent overpopulation of this planet and he may increase the percentage of gays because this planet is becoming overcrowded,therefore gay bashers may soon be in the minority.

  • Theseus

    "If America does not repent and turn from its wicked ways and stop approving of such perverted and sinful ways, then we are surely headed to God’s swift and complete judgment. God’s judgment will be unavoidable to all."

    Go back and re-read Romans 1:18-32.

    "For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions."

    His judgement doesn't come because of our approval of homosexuality. His judgement has already fallen on us as signified by the appearance and acceptance of homosexuality. We are already under His judgement, most likely from the holocaust of abortion.

    • David

      And ALL of them will have there reword, the Lake of fire and will burn!

  • TheEkstaza

    I was in the military and we had guys we knew were gay. Nobody cared. They aren't out there trying to hook up with straight guys. They do their job and do it well. Many of them are more professional than a lot of us straight guys. They try extra hard just because they want to prove they can do the job just as well. This is all just a bunch of childish BS that only a small segment of whack-a-loon wingnuts are worried about. Grow up boys and girls!!!

    • Robert

      Admit it,you're gay!!

      • TheEkstaza

        Sorry Robert, you're going to have to keep looking. I like the ladies. Don't worry, there's a man out there for you somewhere.

    • AREALAMERICANWOMAN

      STUPIDITY IS ENDLESS IN THIS COUNTRY. The point is, men and women do not share bathrooms or beds or barracks on any base or on deployments. So shouldn't gays be treated the same? If you like the same sex than you should be segregated as such. Its not fair its not equal its not logical. I don't care what you 'think' about homosexuality. If they for some reason feel the need to advertise there homosexuality than they should be segregated from the same sex just like the opposite sex has to. RIDICULOUS! SEXUALITY should not be an issue in the military- you should not express either or. You are there as a unit to serve your country. Not to express your sex preference.

      • TheEkstaza

        Wrong, In my barracks in Darmstadt, Germany our entire floor was coed. We shared bathrooms and showers. Only rooms were separated. We were expected to and did act as adults at all times .When it comes to the issue of sexual harrassment in the military, there are penalties for stepping out of line, no matter what your sexual preference.

      • msamericanpatriot

        You got that right sister!!

    • John Hand

      Maybe a few, repeat...a few gays in the military strive to do better, but as of today, we will have a new breed of gays joining. Picture a recruiter sitting at his desk and in walks two gays, holding hands. One has pink hair and earrings, the other is wearing very short shorts. They kiss and hold hands in front of the poor recruiter, who probably has already served a tour of two in Iraq or Afghan, and he must sit there and keep a straight face while they say things like..."I can't wait to take my physical and bend over and spread my cheeks for the doctor. I've had lots of experience doing that." And if the recruiter balks, the gays have a hidden camera and will use it to have the recruiter reprimanded for not following the Commander-in-Chief's orders. Oh, such a joy to be a recuriter, and by the way, I was one for 13 years.

      • TheEkstaza

        Wrong, there are clear guidelines against sexual harassment and actions such as what you described would certainly fit the bill. It makes me wonder about you being recruiting officer for so long without knowing the military's stance on sexual harassment.

        I'll tell you one thing, they won't have pink hair for long.

        • John Hand

          Ever served in the military? I know very well the military's stance on sexual harrassment, and Obama's take on it. 'Take it or shove it, career man.' Yes, our little gay might lose his pink hair in basic, just like Elvis lost his locks, but what if he/they...talk 'swishy' and act like girls as they walk and swing their hips, and wave their limp wrists in the air. What if they STARE at other men in the shower? No, not SAY or TRY anything, but just...STARE? No, it is not sexual harrassment as they do that, but it is a SLAP IN THE FACE to all soldiers who have gone out and fought for our freedoms, and your right to act like a fool. Matter of fact, now that I am thinking on it, I just removed a t-shirt after getting sweaty cleaning my motorcycle, and that shirt says 'Got Freedom? Thank a soldier.'

        • TheEkstaza

          Yes I have served in the military. I also served beside homosexual. Some of them were flaming gays on the weekend, but all of them were soldiers in uniform. None of them ever tried to sleep with me, and if any of them stared at me, I never knew it. You sir need to GROW UP!!!

    • BimBam

      You're a shill aren't you? A commie-cal schill. Yeah, you'd love to see the US military become gay. You know they are incompatible with US military. The mightiest army in the world and you want to bring it down to the faggot militaries the world over.

      Nope, ain't gonna happen. The US military will create two armies, one made of fools and faggots like you. Your commander will be named Hillaryous Clinton.

      The other army will be the regular guys, (the real army) commanded by Col Ollie North and will continue to conquer the rest of the world and subjugate it and then squeeze them for oil and exude cheap labor so we can continue to enjoy our lifestyle the world envys but cannot copy due to indigenous backward genetics.

    • Byron Mullet

      Well Exstaza, In America we believe our laws and rights come from the Creator. You know the one who was quoted in this article. Speaking of wingnuts. Everyone who just makes up their belief system/values is just winging it.

    • brainiac

      TheEkstaza: Thanks my friend but you will find that a large percentage of these gay bashers will never consider that any portion of what they espouse here can be question. Even if you had spoken out against gays I respect your opinion because you have first hand experience and because you served our country so we can carry on such jibberish as this.

      • TheEkstaza

        I'm hoping to make a difference for that tiniest percent that may listen. The best thing I can tell anyone is to question everything. Even me. I try to make sure everything I write that is not opinion is fact. If it sounds off to you, look it up. Keep me honest.

        • John Hand

          Keep you honest, Ekstaza? How about the fact that some of us are using our full REAL NAMES, while you hide behind a 'handle' we used to call it in the old CB radio days? Anything I write, I put my NAME to it.

        • TheEkstaza

          Christians don't have to worry about atheists killing them over religion. I live in the deep south. I don't feel it's safe to advertise my identity online.

          John Hand - Interesting that you only call a particular poster out on using a handle! If you were serious about this you would have called out many posters, most in fact, who use handles to post. Msamericanpatriot loves to hide behind a handle has she posts her vitriol.

  • Chris

    No - a sign of equality to all people. You people don't seem to understand the constitution when it says we are all born equal.

    Other militaries work just fine with gays. You .don't like it because you want an evangelical Christian army to spread your crazy around the planet by force. You love to have the government waste money on building churches on military bases. You love to use the Bible to encourage nuclear weapon controllers to use their weapons against innocents.

    You people love guns and destruction.

    • Millicent

      Why is it necessary for queers to come out and shove their sick lifestyle on everyone. Do heterosexuals do this? Don't ask, don't tell was fine with me. There is no reason for this disgusting behavior being shoved down our throats. These queers represent 1.7% of the population. How did such a small group of degenerates gains so much power? We are a cursed nation. We have legitimized killing babies in the womb. we have abandoned Israel in the evil Muslim Obama's administration, and now we say it's okay to behave in a sexually deviantly way and we will accept this as normal. BTW if you google Down Low Club, you will find out Obama also a queer. Matthew 24 tells Christians to be aware of the times. I believe the Lord's return is imminent. I don't plan on being one of the virgins who didn't have the oil for my lamp

    • John Hand

      Your way is much better Chris. Pedophiles picking on children, guys making love to...guys. Ewww, just think of how they do that....Ewwwwww. And then they have to clean that mess up afterwards. And anatomically, they can't even face each other...Ewwwwww. And Lezzies, and their weapon of choice, a dildo, admission that a man is the intended way....

    • Lode

      So serial killers and child molesters should be left to live their lives their way also since they are born equal???

    • Robert Kepka

      Chris, We are all born to equal opportunity to work hard and honestly to improve our lot in life. We are born into different life situations that differ greatly. Some are born into poverty, some are born into wealth. But all are born into the freedom to do what they will with their life.

      As to homosexuality, whether you believe creation was at the hand of some supreme intelligence or whether it was the result of a chemical reaction with swamp scum, that creator created a male and female in every species for the purpose of perpetuation of the species. It was made a pleasurable act to facilitate that process. There is no logical reason for homosexuality except to say these people suffer from gender confusion.

      • John Hand

        Robert, like what you said. A thought occurred to me a while back, and I have started to put it into print. FOR ALL YOU DOUBTERS, YOU AETHEISTS WHO DOUBT, I have PROOF of CREATIVE DESIGN, and not 'Evolution' as you people that think our ancestors crawled up out of the swamp like to call it. When many try to prove CREATIONISM they point to a sunset, or a flower or similar. Well, that could be a result of evolution (But in God's plan) but let's talk about the vagina. Yes, THAT PART of the female anatomy. It, the vagina is a masterful design. The HUMAN female vagina has something that NO OTHER ANIMAL HAS. The human vagina has not just one but TWO sources of pleasure for our female. One outside, and one inside. This is God's design to ENSURE that the human female experiences PLEASURE in order to facilitate the propogation of our species. In other words for the illiterate, to make sure we keep popping out babies. Why did God do that, give only the HUMAN female those pleasure centers? The reason, for those that have not yet thought it out, is because ONLY HUMANS have the reasoning power to realize that SEX CAUSES BABIES. Need space, will go to a second part.

        • John Hand

          Therefore, now that human females have reasoned that out, they might stop giving in to males, and the human race decllines. But, they feel pleasure, and therefore, we have babies. Yes, I know a few women have sex deliberately in order to make a babe, but in reality, it is pleasure GIVEN AND RECIEVED that is the prime motivator. Now, go on Evolutionists, try to tell me/us, that the human female anatomy was a product of evolution. Go on, convince me.

        • TheEkstaza

          Easily, species that produce more babies have a greater chance to pass on their traits. That textbook evolution.

          Wow!!! You really make it easy.

    • SparkGap

      Chris - see my replies to "Sheila" & to "Paul" - Finally - "If you want Peace, then prepare for war (para bellum)."
      In a world filled with sinful humans, aggression is inevitable. An aggressor (or criminal) is much less likely to come against you, if he knows that you will resist with force. Such is the primary role of a military. Admittedly, people lose track of that primary role. However, "history" (like WW2) can give birth to a huge military and even nuclear weapons. Just thinking peaceful things will not secure "peace" for little you.
      Next , "Born Equal" or "Created Equal"? First, just how egalitarian are you? Do you think that human government can ever be a guarantor & provider of of your equality? Keep wishin' too for a "genie in an old lamp." The U.S. Constitution says "created equal." "Created" logically implies a "Creator" per the Judeo-Christian world view (paradigm) which then begs the question: What sort of "equality?" The socialist paradigm of the present US administration will suck you in and tie you up into a human administered earthly "paradise" (or hell). You will then be servant & property of your atheistic masters. Wake up Dude! Your only real shot at freedom is tied to your Creator, & to the Savior whom He sent. i.e. The Crucified & Resurrected ONE!

    • prsmith

      The Constitution was never meant to supercede or replace Godly law, Chris, and the founding fathers would not be pleased knowing how far we have fallen from the Word. Those who have replaced God's law with man's law will pay a terrible price.

      While we are all born equal, we do not all remain equal. Some excel and some fail. Some become saints and some become serial killers. Some become Christians and some reject the Word. While we are all born with equal free will, some decide wisely and some foolishly.

      As was said elsewhere, militaries don't care about your politics or your religion or your lifestyle. They only care that you follow orders and march up the hill into withering fire when ordered to do so. Someone else suggested that gays (and other sinners) would likely be the first to die and would die in greater proportions than those who believe. In support of that notion, I proffer the 91st Psalm.

    • John Hand

      Chris, WE are wasting money building churches on military bases? Those churchs are non-denominational now. But how about the Muslims building MOSQUES all over the USA? You think those are churches, don't you? No my friend, they are MILITARY FORTS, built right under our very noses with Obama's blessing and the protection of the ACLU, and in time will come the open protests, the blocking of roads, the riots, and of course the bombings. (See France and England). So prattle on about our military, or what will be left of it after Obama, and when the Muslim forts begin to affect the way you live, let's see how you feel then.

  • Glenn

    Dear Rita,
    Yes, homosexuals have been in the military since the beginning. And? They have also been involved in most of the spy, treason and espionage business for most of the 20th century. And?

    I can't use the word "gay" since that is just a lie. "Grim" would be more appropriate to what they actually are. All people who are homosexual choose to be homosexual. It's just the same as people who chose to be murderers, adulterers, thieves, etc. They are only called sinners, because they are sinners. If you claim to be a Christian, why do you refuse to condemn a particular sin? They are not hated by all of us, but the sin is hated. You have fallen for the propaganda put out by the sodomy lobby that they are discriminated against, but what is really being pushed is "special rights" for sexual perverts. What is the reason for that, "my fellow Christian"?

    • ALOFA

      HOMOSEXUAL life style is a CHOSE. It is NOT NORMAL

      • Millicent

        I am heterosexual. Todays society says it's okay to have sex with someone you are not married to. This is a sin. I choose to remain alone rather than adhere to society's sinful ways.

    • REASON 1

      DITTO. i AGREE WITH YOU WHOLEHEARTEDLY JESUS SPOKE OF THESE BIGOTS WHEN HE WARNED OF the BLIND leading the BLIND.

    • glennTX1966

      Along those same lines,
      For those of us who call our self Christian let us not forget there is only one unforgivable sin and that is blasphemy of the Holy Ghost. I agree with most of the content of the article, Paul the Apostle said the law is for the lawless, therefore they should not be permitted to serve openly. As an American much as I hate the sin, I struggle with the quote (Secular Government being involved period, for sure the Federal Government, I think this is really a States rights issue). I do not think the Federal Government had any Constitutional right to force States to repeal their Sodomy laws. If you don’t like the State your living in move or work to change the State law.

      I know I am rambling and jumping around, As a Christian we are to live by GOD’S Word. Homosexuality is a sin according to the Bible. It should be treated as any other sin. And the Word should be applied and consulted in this matter of the sin itself. So this is where I take issue with many of the modern Churches, they wink at all sin these days and rely on the false doctrine of once saved always saved or they say I do not believe that a loving God would send any one to hell? Don’t have time to go into detail. For example what about the sin of fornication? This is very rampant in our nation today, some of the same Churches condemning the sin of Homosexual is sweeping the sin of fornication under the rug, making excuses for it. Like handing out condoms and say we cannot prevent it? For those of you who do not know the definition of fornication:
      1. voluntary sexual intercourse outside marriage
      2. voluntary sexual intercourse between two persons of the opposite sex, where one is or both are unmarried
      3. Bible sexual immorality in general, esp adultery

      I am not the Judge (God is the Righteous Judge). The Word of God therefore judges us now. Note John 1:1 The Word is God and God is The Word. With that in mind America’s Churches must all repent for not taking a stand against SIN period.

  • Paul

    Leviticus= OLD Testament- Christianity operates from a NEW Testament! I believe the operational admonition here should be, "Hate the sin; love the sinner" (NO pun intended!) Further, judgement in this matter ( even in Leviticus) is God's, not ours to make. "Judge not, lest ye be judged." "Let him who has not sinned cast the first stone." Certainly I learned during my time in service, it's better to have a gay, sharp-shooting, warrior at my side than a straight consciencious objector when in a firefight. BUT I didn't have to go barhopping with EITHER of them after the fight. Remember, homosexuality isn't contagious!

    • http://www.jerseyshoreteaparty.org DRLJR

      Don't forget the New Testament still list sodomy as a behavior worthy of death. And Christ did not replace the law but fulfills the law.

      • Kalev

        Nominal Christians believe the lie of the devil that the Law (Torah) was abolished after Yeshua ascended to heaven, a lie perpetrated early on by the anti-Semitic Roman Catholic Church and later on by anti-Semitic Protestant leaders like Martin Luther. This former Christian and follower of Yeshua knows better.

        • Millicent

          The RC Church repented of this many years ago. I am a Catholic and am sorry for this perversion of the Bible. Now that I read it, I understand that Christ lived as a Jew and died in the Jewish tradition of being buried right away. It was the part of the Jewish community, the Sanhedrin and hypocrites, that wanted to kill Him, His own people. The Catholic Church is not anti-Semitic any longer. Christ CHOSE to die for us so we we could be cleansed of our sins and enter Paradise. I am sorry you no longer call yourself a Christian. Get over your bitterness and come back to our Savior.

        • Kalev

          I'm still with our Savior but I left the pagan influenced Protestant Church that adopted 95% of Roman Catholic doctrine and tradition. I choose to walk after Yeshua (Jesus) like his talmidum (disciples) did.

    • ALOFA

      HOMOSEXUAL life style is a CHOSE. It is NOT NORMAL, and it is UN-NATURAL. The Bible said, And likewise also the men, leaving the NATURAL use of the woman, BURNED in their LUST one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that reward due of their error which was meet. IT IS A CHOSE. The Bible said, that GOD IS LIGHT, and IN HIM IS NO DARKNESS AT ALL. GOD LOVES the WORLD. But that does not mean that the WORLD is saved. NO. The KEY word is BELIEVE IN JESUS. So the CHOSE is, BELIEVE or NOT BELIEVE. The Bible also said, that, FOR WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED. The KEY word is, CALL. So the CHOSE is, CALL or NOT CALL. Every thing that we do in life is our CHOSE.

      • Watzittooya

    • LTCB

      You cut off the verse. The admonition is not to NOT JUDGE. The admonition is to JUDGE CAREFULLY. The rest of the verse reads, "for with the same measure you judge, you will be judged." It does not take a genius to realize this isn't "just sin". True, sin is sin. But, some sins pervert the soul so much that they cannot be permitted to continue. Look at Sodom. There was a reason for that action. It wasn't capricious.

    • IrishCowboy

      the problem you have with your thinking is with out the old testament, YOU HAVE NO FOUNDATION, YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHERE YOU CAME FROM AND HAVE NO CLUE AS TO WHERE YOU ARE GOING WITH OUT THAT FOUNDATION!

      those that speak the words ""Judge not, lest ye be judged." "Let him who has not sinned cast the first stone." are using these phrases to try and keep people from telling them the truth, so that they can continue living in sin...... if you are going to use part of the Word of God, then USE IT ALL !!!! for the Bible does not tell us not to judge, but rather to judge righteously..... for it even tells us that if we can not judge the small things of this earth, then how are we going to judge the angels???? yep, better read up......

      as far as what God has also told us, that those that do not believe are already condemned.....

      now you say by what measure you judge, you shall be judged..... this is true... .for the measure I use is THE WORD OF GOD, not mine.... thus, we all are going to be judged by the King Himself by the Word Of God.....

      stop making excuses.... all our sins are worthy of nothing less then DEATH.... but we do have hope.... Only Through Christ, Jesus, and He also tells us that IF WE LOVE HIM, WE WILL KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS........ which ones? just the ones we choose? NO!!!!! ALL OF THEM...... for He did not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it, and it will be fulfilled on the day of judgment, and those that have not been keeping His Word, His Commands, will suffer the penalty....

      people say I am a person that hates other people, sorry, they do not know me, for even Christ said that those that are sexually immoral will not share in the Kingdom of Heaven..... SEVERAL TIMES....... I only talk to, or deal with people I care about.... if I do not care about a person, I leave them to their own vice..... for the dust has then been shaken from my shoes....... and I will not come this way again...

    • Dave

      In response to Paul,
      Homoseuality may not be contagious, but there is certainly a large network of "recruiters out there. They force the teaching that it is a normal lifesttyle. Why on earth should kids be told that the lifestyle of 2-3 % of the population is normal when it contains 90% of the STDs that go around! This small group also makes up the MAJORITY of child molesters! Proof: The motto of NAMBLA "8 is too late"!

      • Watzittooya

        Dave, I would be interested in knowing from where you get those statistics you cite. Also, please explain how NAMBLA's motto is proof of your claim that the majority of child molestors are in that tiny percentage you state.

          You need to read....the more you read the more you find out. Epidemic, by Dr (PhD) Meg Meeker, You're Teaching my child What?" by Miriam Grossman. Start looking up titles that are giving you scientific facts and that is where you will get your stats. Also the Man Love site....and other sick groups, such as the pedofile groups trying to pass their laws have all you need to see that the MAJORITY of them are spoken child molesters.

      Paul - one vet to another - Thanks for serving- That said - I DO understand your "sharpshooter" opinion. Yet, we must ultimately consider the real issue here - homosexuality (male or female). Please check out my response to "Sheila" per "judgement". Competence & loyalty in the military realm is one issue. Morality is another issue - though it can easily taint a warrior's competence & loyalty. I appreciate your feedback.

    • Str8-N-Proud

      Seems like you're trying to split hairs Paul. Just so you don't get too comfortable using the Old Testament vs New Testament argument you better read Roman's 1:26-27, 1 Cor. 6:9 and 1 Tim 1:10. All these NEW Testament speak out against the sodomizer and homosexuality. That takes care of your mistaken belief that only the OLD Testament speaks out against sexual perversions like homosexuality and lesbianism. It is impossible to live in this world without having an opinion (judgement) about anything. The sodomites certainly are passing their judgement on the whole of society by pushing us to accept their lifestyle as "acceptable." If you don't believe this to be true then why is a hetero called homophobic when he/she speak out against those perverse relationships? In addition, your weak interpretation of what the bibles is saying shows your total lack of knowledge of the bible. I served 22 years in the military and would certainly have felt more comfortable having to share an open bay with 50 hetero guys than 25 hetero guys and 25 homo guys.

    Ekstaza, looks like you are a homo AND an atheist too. If you don't see the light I would not want to be in your shoes come judgement day.

    • Chris P

      There is no judgement day - it's just a silly ruse to get gullible clowns to behave. Unfortunately it doesn't even work.

      Anyway - why would you want to live for eternity - that's daft. Clearly you ignore the fact that some people lose their minds before they die and have forgotten who their relatives are so going to heaven isn't going to help that.

      Your brain dies oh clueless one. All your memories and knowledge die with you. Heaven is a false hope. Better to live life to the full while you are alive. So start treating people as equals.

      • Phyllis

        I am afraid Judgment Day is out of your control and mine as well. I choose to believe the Bible over the bitter, foolish ranting of those who choose not to believe.

      • prsmith

        You had better be very, very sure, Chris, for to be wrong leads to eternal anguish. The Bible has been unnaturally accurate in its prophecy over a 2500+ year period and you're betting your life on the rest of it being inaccurate. Not real good odds. In addition, the Bible is riddled with hidden messages that simply can not be accidental; they can only have been written by an all knowing God.

        As to "treating people as equals", all true Christians treat everybody the same no matter whether they're one time murderers, serial rapists or people with abominable lifestyles. In every case, we hate (and preach against) the sin but we love the sinners and pray for their eternal souls. That includes you, Chris.

        It's our job to bring the Word to those who haven't heard it. It's the Holy Spirit's job to work on your heart and convert you to Christ. In the end, however, it's your job to decide. I pray that you decide correctly.

    this is quite possibly the most offensive article i've ever read. What happened to love your neighbour?

      how can you be "offended" if you're not gay? really. wow, haven't we become to overly-sensitive, thin-skinned nation of wimps. and what exactly is offensive about the facts? he's not judging them. I didn't hear any words of hatred or calls for violence. he quoted Scripture. do you have a problem with the Bible? If that's your beef, then say so. Shame on YOU for judging the author. He never said he didn't love them, he's saying he doesn't approve of their lifestyle. BIG DIFFERENCE that bleeding-heart types repeatedly fail to recognize or just ignore. You can love someone, but not like something they do. Hope my reply doesn't offend you.

    • Barbara

      You are right, Jesus would minister to the homosexual, just as he did with the women caught in adultry, or the woman at the well. When he was through, he would tell him to go his way and sin no more. Once these people, that were living in sin, met the master, their lives changed and they were never the same.

      • Eric

        Wrong. When Jesus comes back he will sit in judgement upon all of us. He has paid the price for anyones sin who will repent prior to his return. There will be no free passes on any type of unrepented sin come that day. Jesus is love but he is also the son of a just God.

    What people must remember is that homosexuality (properly term is sodomy) is a behavior. When this behavior is discussed it is important to reference the behavior correctly. I.e. "It is reported that 10% of the population is homosexual." is incorrect. The proper statement is "It is reported that 10% of the population practice or engage in homosexuality as a life style." It is important to remember that sodomy is a behavior, it is not an ethnicity (i.e. White, Black, Asian, Korean, Japanese, Russian etc) or a gender (i.e. male or female). It is important to not allow the sodomite lobby to frame the issue as gender or ethnicity. Then they will win. It is behavior. And society has the privilege to control certain types of behaviors. After all, we don't allow prostitution, polygamy, incest or child marriages.

    • pearl87

      I agree with you, but the corrupted souls who are behind the "gay" agenda, want to change ALL of the rules. The homosexual revolution is only the beginning. Next they want to de-criminalize pedophilia. It is important that God-fearing people wake up to the fact that there are those for whom the word "sin" has no meaning. They believe in total and complete licentiousness. There is also no respect among such people for the rights of other human beings, so under their idea of freedom, the only limits on their behavior, will be what they can get away with. In short, it is the end of civilization as we have known it.

    In the Book of Hebrews, The Word says in Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto man once to die, but after this the judgement. Here is the inconvenient Truth; whether you are a Saved Christian, a lost person, an atheist, or a fence rider; we will ALL stand individually before the Judgement Seat of Christ to give an account of the deeds done in our bodies(Romans 2 :6; Romans 14:12). I lovingly plead to all lost souls, atheists, and fence riders : That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

    Rita.... It is a choice!!! I should know!!! I could of been gay but choice not to give into the feelings & choice not to act on them as well. It did how ever take a while to get those feelings to go a way. God dose not control our feelings ... Those who choose to be gay blame God as they do not want to take respondsbilty for their choices they make. It is easier to blame someone than it is to accept blame for making a bad choice & no where dose it say God changed his mind & nor dose it say God controls our feelings. Gays choose to disregard Gods word.They choose to exchange Gods word for a
    Lie ... That is why they choose to be gay - because they get told by others that it is Gods fault , that he changed his mind . God did not change his mind... Gays just do not want to hear it.

      Mom: You need to learn a little grammar and spelling before espousing articles to be digested by a variety of people who really don't speak your dialect. Just because you considered experimenting with the gay life doesn't mean you could have been a full blown gay person. Gays experience the same attraction for samesex lifestyles that heterosexuals experience for opposite sex lifestyles. Ever read of Jesus curing any gays? Why don't you try to get in on some old fashion "witch burning"?

    For though I would desire to glory, I shall not be a fool; for I will say the truth: but now I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he seeth me to be, or that he heareth of me. And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.2 Corinthians 12:21 KJV

    And lest, when I come again, my God will humble me among you, and that I shall bewail many which have sinned already, and have not repented of the uncleanness and fornication and lasciviousness which they have committed.Ephesians 5:3, 5-7, 10-11, 17 KJV

    But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them.

    Ignorant. Ahmadinejad. I was messing with other boys when I was five. I had no idea it was sex or whatever sex was. Ask two males dogs or male fish or male lions or male cows or male birds if they read "Leviticus" <?> and just don't know what they're doing is "unnatural" or ABNORMAL" Fact is, (for the scientifically stupid), .homosexuality between ANY species is NOT unnatural, it's DYSFUNCTIONAL. HANG ME EXECUTE ME! I am happy, by my means of my mere perverted and sick existence, to give you something to irrationally hate..
    Why does anyone care what people do in bed? Do I ask YOU what you do in bed? I couldn't care less.
    Homosexual behavior has been scientifically observed in each of the above species. The only difference between them and us is that their behavior is temporary, whereas ours is permanent. Do you believe in manmade global warming too? Probably. Other species engage in homosexual activity, so why does God DARE allow that? I'm Catholic and your ignorance makes me vomit and question a God.
    Aren't humans just another kind of animal or are you something special? Aren't we all, 'supposedly" God's creatures, or is that different this year? You are hateful, biggoted and misinformed and ignorant about the facts of human sexual biology.

I don't want some older guy hitting on my young grandsons in the military where they want to follow our family's tradition of serving their country.

      • alegalcitizen

        YOU ARE SO RIGHT, the fact that the queers are pushing off their perverted sexual desires onto everyone including our children has to be STOPPED.

    • pearl87

      IF you are Catholic, then you are called to witness the truth of sin, even if it is your own. God made man in His image. That is the difference between you and an animal. You have an eternal soul which will either know eternity in God's presence, by conforming to His will, or else you will be outside of God's presence, in Hell, where are those who defy God's will. Animals cannot sin, but you, by behaving as an animal, are renouncing your humanity and choosing to reject Heaven.

  • Mark Anthony Jones

    What a bunch of arrogance and hogwash. Leviticus also says you should not wear two different kinds of material at the same time. How many of you are guilty of that? And that women should never have sex during their period, that we should never eat pork, among a bunch of other things we no longer follow. Most of the Leviticus rules were put in place because of cleanliness issues with living without much water in the desert.

    New Testament references are speaking of sexual predators and sexual abuse - the word used in the greek new testament is pederasty. The incidence of sexual abuse and predators in the gay community is the same percentage wise as in the straight community, so it is NOT a gay issue and to say otherwise is to simply misinformed and prejudicial.

    There have been gay people in every military in the world for centuries. Just because it was not safe to be honest and truthful, does not mean they did not exist. I am thrilled that gay men and women no longer have to LIE about their reality. ONE OF THE COMMANDMENTS IS VERY SPECIFIC ABOUT BEARING FALSE WITNESS OR LYING, and I believe some of you should quit lying to yourselves and come out of the desert and into the 21st century. We have water now and we do a lot of things differently these days.

    Galations 6:7 says "God is not mocked, whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap". - He cannot be imposed on, or mocked. He knows what our real character is, and he will judge us accordingly. I don't think it a good idea to mock God and judge another person's character, even a gay person's character. The rapture may take place very soon and I would bet my life that there will be plenty of straight people that will be left behind and that there will be some gay people that make it. As a gay man and tea party Republican, it would be a good thing if we stuck to constitutional issues and won the 2012 election against the true abomination we have in the White House whose intent it is to destroy our Republic and make this a Muslim nation.

    • sylviacroft

      Romans 1 is not talking about sexual predators, it is talking about homosexuals. You should read it! That's not Old Testament, it's New Testament. Sexual sins are more grievous to God than others, because it is supposed to be reserved for the marriage relationship. The marriage relationship is a picture to the world of Christ and His Church who is called His Bride. It is a picture of becoming one with Christ.

      I am so passionate about this subject because I lost my 32 year old homosexual brother to AIDS. I hate what homosexuality does to ruin people's lives. It's just like the devil. He comes to steal, kill, and destroy. Jesus came to give us life and that more abundantly.

      • Watzittooya

        Sylvia, perhaps you've not heard, but AIDS isn't a homosexual disease. It's EVERYONE'S disease and any of us can get it. I'm sorry for the loss of your brother, I'm sure that was very painful for you. However, to claim that he died because he was gay is illogical.

        • That Mouthy Lady

          I'll NEVER get AIDS. It is NOT "everyone's disease." And the stats do prove that most people infected with HIV ARE homosexual. You can look that up.

          I'm celibate. I don't do drugs. It's remotely possible to get it if you're given infected blood, but the chances of being hit by a car are far higher.

          AIDS is one of THE most preventable diseases ever. The only victims _I_ pity are children who've gotten it from perverted adults.

  • karlb

    What is sad here is the anger. Yes, homosexuality is a sin. Like many others. God hates the sin, He loves the sinner. Heterosexuals are sinners too. Just different sins. We all are sinners and need God. That must not be lost in this. However, the Bible is clear on this issue, unfortunately, and that is also lost as those trapped in homosexuality try to justify it, just as heterosexuals justify their sins, whatever they are. We all have sins we justify, and we all need to turn from our sins, whatever they are, and turn to God. Whether we are "born with it" is kinda irrelevant - we are born sinners. We can argue whether someone is born gay until the sun goes down for the last time, and it doesn't change whether it is sin or not. It is still sin. I was born a sinner, and need to repent. While I don't believe you can be born gay, I also don't think you can be born a drunk - BUT even IF I'm wrong, its a mute point. Scripture is clear, it is a sin. There are things I do that are "natural" to me that are sin that I need to stop, or work on stopping and turn to God for grace and forgiveness and ask Christ to cover with His death on the Cross, THAT is what the Gospel is all about.

    So its not about hating gays, I certainly don't hate gay people. But I also don't think calling it OK is the answer. Calling any of MY sins OK isn't the answer either. I will struggle with MY sins until the day I day, just as I expect a gay man to struggle with his for the rest of his life.

    I am willing to let him struggle as I hope he will allow me to struggle. But I wont call his sin OK, as I wouldn't expect him to call my sin OK. If the Bible says it is sin, it is sin. Will I say he is going to hell if he slips up? No. Not if he has asked Christ to be his Savior and calls sin, sin. That's what I do everyday. I fail every day! But I call sin sin and I start fresh everyday, as the Psalms says, "His mercies are new every morning."

    Lets stop yelling at each other. But we must call sin sin, and then fight the sin, not each other. And then extend grace to each other as we fail over and over until "he that began a good work in us completes it until the Day of Christ Jesus!"

    • Barbara

      I could not agree with you more. We each fight sin in our lives, and Christ expects us to. Sin is sin. We can not go around saying it is OK that I steal...I was born that way. It just doesn't fly with our God.

    • Brainiac

      Could any of you "better than thou" christians have the stomach to perform/participate in gay sex??????????????????
      If your answer is no then you make my case. Those of the gay persuasion enjoy gay sex the same as we heterosexuals enjoy heterosexual sex and that doesn't come from "Choosing a Gay Lifestyle".

      • That Mouthy Lady

        Uh, Brainiac. You need to reread what we SAID, not what your hatred, bigotry & paranoia makes you THINK we said. We KNOW we're sinners. We are not & did not SAY we're "better than thou."

      • That Mouthy Lady

        Oh, & one more thing. Yes. I DID perform such sins, before I was led to God, who cured me of it. I chose GOD...over perversion. Just as I chose the perversion over God, at an earlier point.

    Heee is a little scripture for those homo-sexual friendly supposesly GOD fearing supposedly christians referring tio the constitution that states all are equal....Galatians 2:16-21 KJV

    Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

    Where there is no place, time or even urge, in a military operation when you're in the field for any kind of sex it should be possible for homosexuals to function well in such units. Homosexuality was common in the Roman Army, but most of it was of the kind that comes from desperation, as in prisons. As long as you don't pick up dropped soap you should be OK.

        • msamericanpatriot

          Yes it is the same as proving it doesn't exist. Finding that there is NO gay gene means that homosexuality is a CHOSEN lifestyle and not genetic.

          But homosexuals keep hoping people will forget to check the RECORD. I have several books on the subject (NOT, I might stress, NOT written by "anti-homosexuals"...just SCIENTISTS), but I'm glad to have a handy resource accessible online. THANX!!!

    Homosectuality is a desease, a mental desease lusting for fornification. Gays have the lust for sex of same partners which is not a natural act for humans or animals. God intended man and wife to produce children for normal reproduction to have familys and have increased population to eternity. Man and man, women to women there would be no reproduction and when they got old they would die and there would be no humans left on earth. God did not create us for gay world. How can people with common sense believe that gay practice is right and good under those terms? It is a known fact of F.B.I. records that gays commit the most heinous brutal murders of all murders committed in United States. Gays have become people of hate towards non gays and are trying to force America to accept their ways which is wrong thinking to start with. Hate will destroy good people with the wrong agenda and thinking.

    • Watzittooya

        Your the one that needs to adjust his tinfoil hat Watzittooya. Jim stands corrected. Case in point was a man named Jason Shepard who was STRAIGHT and was murdered by his HOMOSEXUAL boss.

          Again, it is illogical for anyone to conclude that the sexual orientation of a individual is the reason an attack occurred. I could just as easily point out that the majority of serial killers are male. Does this make all men serial killers or even potential serial killers? Would it be fair to conclude that testosterone is the key "ingredient" is the profile of a serial killer?

          It is just a illogical for msamericanpatriot to even attempt to justify a conclusion that orientation is an "ingredient" in violent actions.

          Here inane insults don't help her case either.

They ALL said it was a life style of drugs and debauchery, and once in, was difficult to get out ESP IF THEY GOT AIDS!!!!! We "rejuvenated" some of them and brought them into our "family" got them jobs, etc. Most of them had broken homes, no male role models, etc. Etc. We had about 90% success in our efforts.

    People are not born equal. If we were equal, then we would all look alike, think alike, speak the same language and would all be winners or losers. People need to understand that we are equal in that we are all born into this world without committing any sin and we will all go through the doors of death to the next phase of our lives. We all make choices in our lives knowing that we can't change the consequences of our choices. The consequences do not always
    come at once. If we want a better future then we must have the desire to make better choices. We all will be persuaded
    to choose our future by whom we desire to worship. We will have life more abundantley by choosing to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ than by rebelling against him. Choose wisely and well while we still can, because we have been given this agency from our Heavenly Father.

  • RWest

    The quotations used in the article are from the Bible. If you do not believe God or believe in God, then you will condone whatever you will. If this is what you do, then you truly have no "compass" by which to guide your life. If you say you are a Christian and yet "practice" homosexuality, how can this be? You are saying you know better than God. That God "made" you this way? That you "can't help" it? Sorry but homosexuality is a choice, not a chance. Just as murder is a choice, robbery is a choice, adultery is a choice. It is also, not an "alternative lifestyle". It is a perversion. Homosexuals speak of themselves as "made this way" or "they did not choose to be this way" in order to take the individual responsibility of "their choice" off of themselves to try to ease their conscience. Thus the homosexual begins the self deception. Homosexuality is spoken against in both the Old and New Testament. The article actually quoted from both. When mankind justifies what God has condemned, then we as mankind stand condemned too. God does not change His mind on that. Now mankind (you) can still practice your homosexuality, but rest assured, you will bear the price for your sin (i.e. choice). It is a sin because God said it was. I simply agree with what He has already stated. I condemn the sin. If you take it as condemning you it is because your own heart condemns you. If you must make yourself feel better by attacking me by calling me bigoted or "homophobic", then so be it. It is the only "argument" you have because there is no basis for "practicing" that sin except for your choice. That is the same for me if I was to "practice" adultery. Neither is acceptable. Both are wrong and adultery should no more be legitimized by law than homosexuality has been being legitimized by law. Although some of our immoral, indecent and derisive politicians may force that on we the people - but rest assured - God is not mocked. That that you sow, that you will also reap. If you "sow to the flesh (your own selfish desires), then you will reap destruction". Gods words.

    Major Dad, I do owe you an apology. I have nothing but respect for the aircrew I have served with in my 21 years in the Air Force. What I was speaking of is the Air Force my once beloved service has become with all of it's PC ways and some of the stupid rules forced on mainly the enlisted ranks by some Pentagon careerist who either not has deployed or just forgotten where he comes from. As for Adm. Mullen, he is the opitomy of how horrible our leadership has become. He makes Wesley Clark look good. As for Adm. Mullen, he should have his very own homosexual sailor to share his bunk with. Please sir, accept my apology.

  • TheSword

    There is no ambiguity in the word of Gos except for that that sinful men give it. Gods word as written is interpreted by many men and religions differently but the thing to remember is that all are sinners myself included, the difference is I am a sinner saved by grace. To point out to the lost that they are sinners is a moot point because they do not understand sin. If you know Christ and walk with him daily, then you also spend time in prayer and study of his word daily and you don't need anyone except the holy spirit to interpret his word. Pray for the sodomites that are posting here trying to get others to believe they are normal, or should I say trying to convince themselves they are normal. Until these folks know Jesus Christ trying to argue with them is in vain. Be there in christian (i.e Christ Like) love, Pray for them, do not condemn them as we are instructed in his word to leave the judgment to our savior and you can still share the Love of Jesus and tell them through His saving grace they can change if they want too and be there to help guide them if they so choose to change there way and lead them to Christ. We Christians love to talk when we don't need to carry a Bible with you, and give it to anyone who will accept it and let God's word do the talking and stop trying to brow beat the non believer into submission. God be with you all.

    You have got that wrong Paul, Christ also said "I have not come here to change what has been written not one iota of the dotting of the 'I' or crossing of the 'T' shall be changed." This tells me that the Old Testament is dovetailed into the New Testament. I tell you this, I retired from the Coast Guard early, one son opted out of the Navy and another son opted out of the Marine Corps both with honorable discharges. The top breed of cats that I know personally who would go into hell without flinching an eye to kick ass and give the enemy a bad day who are boisterous and swaggered when at home would not have much time with homosexuals. So Mr. Commandant USMC what are going to do with a corps full of whimps?

    DONT ASK DONT TELL was not created to discriminate or shame homosexuals from serving on the military. It was created because because there weere homosexuals that were getting cut, because they weren't fast enough, in shape enough, strong enough, couldnt shoot worth a hoot, etc. This lead to a lot of lawsuits claiming they were getting cut because they were homosexual. What arrogance. They can't even see their own shortcomings. They are so blind. We will see the same lawsuits again. Or the re will be homosexuals making the grade because they are homosexuals. That is were the real danger exists. True soldiers that trained hard and strived hard to become a maximum soldier getting killed because lack of competant help from a soldier that half-heartedly skated tro training on an almost guaranteed grade because he is gay. This type of incompetant soldier will surely cause many tears back here at home. The gays dont even care, just as long as they push their homosexual agenda forward. Deny morality and harbor and protect pediphiles. They are so blind. Only when they stand before the judgement of GOD will they see.Its only a matter of time before thwy fight and lobby for PEDIPHILE RIGHTS. Claiming GOD made a pediphile the way it is. LBGT&Pediphiles.

    Rita you are dead wrong when you say that homosexuals don't choose to be gay.

  • Roy

    I am of the opinion, due to study that homosexuals have a chemical mix up in their body. I read a box from a man that said 13 people that came to his clinic in Malibu, CA claimed to like sex with the same sex partner. One of them had been in a relationship for 11 years. They were at the man's clinic for inner body cleansing. All reported they lost their desire for same sex after the cleanse. That is not a lot of people but I say 13 out of 13 is a start that all homosexuals should try if they would prefer to be normal. If a homosexual wants to remain one that is their problem, not mine. Check out http://www.cafr1.com. The last statement has nothing to do with homosexuals. Rupo

    True harry Jesus about loving your neighbor. He also was about obeying the law of GOD. while ot is true we are all sinners, most of us are " accidental" sinners and/or are willing repent. A grreat portion of repentance is rejecting the sin and casting it out accepting that it was a sin and seperation from GOD. If a homosexual repents from the sins and rejects it and further seeks GOD then are to be accepted with open arms. Jesius also said that if you confess him he will

    The relentless ruthless agressive agenda is to take over everything and herd the Christians to the concentration camps. They are occultists and witches and wizards. They acknowledge these spirits who are from satan but deny the existence of God. This shows you they are blinded with the evil powers they have gotten. Many of them are born evil, and they are the ones who apply the most pressure to others to follow them. They are manipulative and monstrously power hungry, and they are often killers; don't fool yourself into believing their compassionate rhetoric. The gay agenda, for people who not been around much is definitely nothing less than hate. They are from the paralell universe where everything is the opposite. Thet cannot generate life and love, so must deprive you of yours. They hate more and more as they get further into the gay lifestyle. We cannot give up hope on most of them being saved but people of great faith can by example reach some those who still have the seeds of God's love. The more power the gay movement gains the worse things will be. It wasn't very smart to give them their rights because they take over.

    continued From jake above

    If you confess and accept JESUS then when time comes he will accept you. If you reject him then he will reject you. Jesus also said " I am the way, the truth, and the life . No man comerh untolo the father but by me." How do you reject Jesus? You reject the Law of GOD. JESUS IS THE WORD AND THE WORD IS THE LAW. If you reject the law then you reject Jesus. The law is homosexualiry is a sin. PERIOD. There no further defense of homosexuality. The biggest sinner is not the sinner, It is the one who causes the other to sin. PERIOD. Who said that, Jesus who is the law. Homosexuals will eventually lead another person to commit homosexuality. PERIOD. Im not basing this on judgment. I base it on witmess. I live in an area where homosexuality is rampant, and it is very clearly set up to encourage the act. Fighting abd Lobbying for gay rights? If that isnt encouraging homosexuality I dont know what it is. Call be judgemental if you want, I have done exuberant things and spent huge effort ministerying to them. Homoaexuals sont accept that is sin or accept that they have to repent. Any suggestions. Jesus condemned the pharasee for spwaking evil and commiting son. Now what should we christians do when gays refuse the law and try to lead our children and loved ones down the path to the eternal flame. PLEASE TELL ME

    The way I read it all sin is punishable by death.And since we are all sinners we will all die. All sin is equal in the eyes of God so don't be so quick to judge others we are all stained.

  • Anita

    Paul, check out Romans 1: 22-32. You will clearly see that the letter written by the Apostle Paul defines what we are talking about is clearly unacceptable to God. You have also scoffed at "hate the sin, love the sinner. This is a Christian thing that unbelievers wouldn't understand. I believe that you have taken the text "Judge not, lest ye be judged" way out of context. You see everyday we all have to make judgments. Even yourself. So what is expected is that we, Christians are not to make unjust judgments when we are guilty of the same sin we are judging, possibly to a greater depth of guilt.

    • glennTX1966

      For those of us who call our self Christian let us not forget there is only one unforgivable sin and that is blasphemy of the Holy Ghost. I agree with most of the content of the article, Paul the Apostle said the law is for the lawless, therefore they should not be permitted to serve openly. As an American much as I hate the sin, I struggle with the quote (Secular Government being involved period, for sure the Federal Government, I think this is really a States rights issue). I do not think the Federal Government had any Constitutional right to force States to repeal their Sodomy laws. If you don’t like the State your living in move or work to change the State law.

      I know I am rambling and jumping around, As a Christian we are to live by GOD’S Word. Homosexuality is a sin according to the Bible. It should be treated as any other sin. And the Word should be applied and consulted in this matter of the sin itself. So this is where I take issue with many of the modern Churches, they wink at all sin these days and rely on the false doctrine of once saved always saved or they say I do not believe that a loving God would send any one to hell? Don’t have time to go into detail. For example what about the sin of fornication? This is very rampant in our nation today, some of the same Churches condemning the sin of Homosexual is sweeping the sin of fornication under the rug, making excuses for it. Like handing out condoms and say we cannot prevent it? For those of you who do not know the definition of fornication:
      1. voluntary sexual intercourse outside marriage
      2. voluntary sexual intercourse between two persons of the opposite sex, where one is or both are unmarried
      3. Bible sexual immorality in general, esp adultery

      I am not the Judge (God is the Righteous Judge). The Word of God therefore judges us now. Note John 1:1 The Word is God and God is The Word. With that in mind America’s Churches must all repent for not taking a stand against SIN period.

    No on is born gay. It is a choice they make. Same as for a christian. It is a choice. One of the reason the Roman Empire fell was because they were an abomination to the Lord. Sodom & Gomarrah was another example of what happens when a city practices homosexuality and turns their back on God. Titus 1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable and disobedient and unto every good work reprobate. We have a nation has has 30% who proffess to be christians but if Jesus came to visit our house today what would say or do differently. Would the Bible be out or would we have to find it? I believe we are were we are today because we have forgotten where our blessings came from and why we prospered for so long. We were all born in sin but that doesn't mean it needs to remain that way. Jesus paid the price at Calvary.

Twice an individual has justified homosexuality by the actuons of beasts. Theee are no gay birds anyhow. Birds dont intwrcourse to reproduce neither do fish.

  • That Mouthy Lady

    Some supporters of homosexuality like to point out that some animals exhibit such behavior. What they omit is that the reason it happens is because of high stress--usually due to overpopulation. Countless lab rats have proven this, as well as other species. Science says so, so forget the irrelevant comparisons.

    But whether it's for stress or another reason, WE are HUMANS, not just animals, & we have CHOICE. We were made in GOD's image, not in birds' or lab rats' or any other animals, & should be ashamed to look to reasonless creatures for role models.

    If we did THAT, then we should say RAPE is just "natural." APES & WHALES rape, after all, among other species.

    FLIES regurgitate their food & then eat it. I think I'll skip THAT lunch....

    Most reptiles abandon their young, leaving their eggs to be eaten or destroyed.

    I could name many other examples of how we humans should not set animals on our level or above; these are only a tiny sample.

    No, even if homosexuality WERE gentic, GOD can fix it. I was changed, & now love males only. And because it IS a behavioral CHOICE, I have complete control over my body. I don't have illicit sex, I don't care HOW desirable a man is!

    CHOOSE GOD.

    • That Mouthy Lady

      Sorry..."gentic" was supposed to read "genetic." Can't think how I missed that.

  • Eddie

    And now everybody knows the truth of this matter. You know the choices and the ramifications. Choose carefully. God doesn't grade on a curve nor does He plea bargain. If you derive pleasure from perversion, it is a foolish thing to do because the payment for the perversion is unspeakable. God didn't lay down the law just to hear Himself speak. He layed down the law so we as humans would have parameters, boundaries or limits. Humans easily wander away from things they know are right, so God HAD to create boundaries. If you violate those boundaries, then there is a price to be paid. But don't take my word for it, read your Bible. Everything you need to know about living and life is in those pages and it cuts like a two edged sword !

Homosexuals cannot reproduce, naturally, without sinTho perversion of satan, homosexuality was tempted unto man and wicked men MADE A CHOICE TO ACCEPT IT. The only choice heterosexuals have make is yo stay within GODS WILL and reject sin. Homosexuals have it harder. They CHOSE TO SIN, ACCEPT THE DEVILS LAW, REJECT GOD AND JESUS, ACT IMMORALLY, ETC.XX You have chosen a veery difficult path. Its not to late. You can turn from sins, repent, accept Jesus Christ your Lord and savior and welcome your new feiends in Christ. WE ARE WAITING...... COME TO THE LIGHT... JOIN THE FORCE.... WE LOVE YOU.

    "Every officer and man should live, and act, as becomes a Christian Soldier defending the dearest rights and liberties of his country".................GEORGE WASHINGTON..............

    Perhaps the left has heard of George but they obviously prefer Vladimir, Joe, Adolf, Benito and Mao. There have been many more they revere to this day. Che in particular loved to do the killing himself. He is still fashionable amongst the left. I find that revealing. Don't you?

    In any case if the left was true to it's self why would they attempt to take what is ours and not just stake out their own place in this world? Our destruction is the obvious course they take.

    If this stands the Army of George Washington is dead. The Christian Soldier will have no place. Service no meaning.

    They fully know well that homosexuality is not compatible with the military. So, therefore, why not put it in?

    This is the way liberals stink, er think. That is why I say they only bring human misery and suffering and NEVER EVER listen to them.

    The solution is to make a military force that agrees to allow homosexual people in and then make ANOTHER military force where gays cannot serve and slowly dissolve the former.

    The part that deeply concerns me is the description of a "debased mind." What do we do if someone in the Military with a "debased mind" rises through the ranks to an important leadership position? How can a "debased mind" make sound military judgments that literally mean life or death to the rank and file soldiers? It seems as if we have too many of those (debasd minds) in leadership in our government already.

    God have mercy on and bless America.

    It is hard to turn from sin and change one's sinful ways. Especially since the vast majority of homosexuals had a same sex encounter at a young age (there are studies revealing this statistic), and the counseling to counter this impression on a young mind takes money, time, and tears. God did not make any man homosexual and then condemn him in His word!

    We all sin, but most of us chose to change our sinful ways instead of forming a group of like-minded individuals and declaring our sin congenital! It is time that "special interest" sinners admit their wrong thinking and get right with God! It takes work but it is well worth the journey.

    The same eternal spirit behind Sodom and Gomorrah has reared its ugly in these last days just as prophesied. Read the following then deny this is true.
    Consider the Following Scenario and Whether This Is What You Want For Yourself and Your Family

    In Sodom it was old and young
    Gen 19:4_ But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter. Notice that it was old and young who went to the house. However, some may say the young does not refer to children. They are wrong, the word young is derived from na’ar, nah-ar, (concr.) a boy (as active), the age of infancy to adolescence. Since there were children, we must assume that heterosexual intercourse took place, to produce for themselves children out of their own greed.

    The children were taught homosexuality
    We see how commonplace this is among lesbians today. This is backed up in that the young male children were homosexuals in Sodom. Their mothers must have raised them this way and the lifestyle was acceptable. Is this not what we see happening in America even as I write this letter. Liberal activist judges in this country are giving homosexual men/women the right to adopt innocent children into this evil lifestyle. Peter in describing these false teachers says in 2nd Peter 2:14 having eyes full of adultery and cannot cease from sin, beguiling unstable souls (young children); a heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children. They have forsaken the right way and gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor who loved the wages of unrighteousness. This is why only Christians need apply for elected office in my book.

    It Was Legal
    Genesis 19:5- and they called unto Lot, asking him where are the men that came unto thee this night? Bring them unto us that we may know them. Know means to have sex with them. It was both young and old that wanted to have intercourse with the angels. They wanted to sodomize them in public. When they could not have them they threatened Lot with the same. Lot was a judge in the city. They said stand back and again they said, “this one fellow (Lot) came in to sojourn and now we will deal worse with you than them (angels). They pressed sore upon Lot and came near to break the door. Lot’s response was to offer his daughters to save the angels, which was wrong. One can never do evil that good may come of it.

    According to scripture only Lot and his family were saved out of Sodom and Gomorrah although Abraham pleaded with God to save them all. God gave Abraham the opportunity to save all that didn’t participate in this ungodly sin but he could only find that it was Lot’s family that hadn’t participated in the homosexual lifestyle, sex with beast, and other ungodly acts.

    For those that claim to be Christians, it is put up or shut up time that is if we want to give a lost and dying population reason or hope to become Christians. I am familiar with the temptation as a boomer to disassociate ourselves from controversy and stay in our comfort zones, but if you are like most of us, wishing we had done things better, now is the perfect time to earn the respect we want from our children by standing up for the righteousness of God. I can assure you, there is no better way to earn our children’s respect and honor than getting out of our zone and lead by example. And too, spineless Christians will have no part in the kingdom of God. After all, this is the Christians call!

    i can not believe how stupid and ignorant people are. you sound like the folks in government. humans don't just wake up one morning and say "gee i think i will be homosexual today but tommoro i will go back to the straight life.. a lot of people say they choose, can you choose your desires? what made you straight ? i know i can't choose. i only have one desire and cant be persuaded to a different sex style. remember it took a straight couple to have a possible gay son or daughter. my point, neither can choose. oh by the way don't forget WE ARE ALL SINNERS.

    Our military is supposed to be the last defense of our civilization. By endorsing and institutionalizing perversion they have lost the moral high ground and authority to protect us. Instead of being the guardians of virtue and honor they have just aided and abetted the social revolutionaries who are separating us from the Providence of God. This is a national security issue.

    It is filth, it is perversion, it is AIDS, it is DEATH. All gay service people that enlisted before 9/20, and especially any gay officer who accepted a commission before that date are guilty of enlistment fraud Article 83 UCMJ.

    From scripture:
    And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless.
    This sounds like a description of today's Liberals to me commonly refered to as the Democratic Party!

    What upset me now is that BHO said that there would be a study in the military before this would go into law. He lied again; they did not have time to do the study. Plus the people in the military were never asked what they wanted. This was just another pay off to the gays who helped get him elected. Just like the back door amnesty that BHO wants to give illegal aliens so they will vote for him. BHO does not care about our country, only his owe self rule. With over 24,700,000 or 15.8% of people our of work or under employed BHO still wants to give illegals aliens amnesty. He also does not care that illegal aliens cost American tax payers over $100 BILLION each year.

    Drat. the Admin doesn't like the "s" word. What I asked, before being so rudely deleted, was how, if homosexuals serving in the US army will wreck the killing machine, prompt God to curse the nation and its citizens, and, judging from the hysteria and bigotry of many of these posts, add flouride to the drinking water and move a black welfare family in next door to date your daughter, is why none of that has happened to Israel? The Israeli Defense Force, the roughest, toughest, most efficient and ruthless army in the world, not only allows homosexuals to serve openly in their ranks, it requires them to by subjecting them to the draft. As you Jesus freaks are fond of pointing out, Jews are God's Chosen People after all. Surely that can only mean gays in the military is God's will. Explain.

  • EDWARD

    You can be gay and Christian. The straight unmarried person and the gay one are both subject to the same principle of only being active with your spouse, (of the opposite sex), so both are to remain abstinent until they marry. God's intention for us orientation-ally speaking is our spouse, not ourselves. This puts the emphasis for this discussion in the right context to actually have an effective out come. When we move off of this argument, we may soon be trying to determine what forms of bestiality are acceptable. The issue is this: Our Heavenly Father designed sex to be something I offer to my spouse, and receive from her as she offers herself to me. This is love within sexual expression, and under God's definition of marriage. Once we depart from this, we become selfish in our expression, and thus it is no longer a loving act. I have friends who are gay, some I hold dear as they are very nice people. I have Christian friends who tho' "saved" still have not grown to understand His will enough in many areas to be called "nice". Both need to seek to know the mind of God to be freed from the sin that is hurting themselves and those around them. the sad thing about Homosexuality is that is a consuming addiction that when fully embraced, obscures ones desire to trust and pursue God for who He is.

      I spent a lot of time replying to this email only to have it deleted at the moment of entry. I guess I broke some rule but have no clue what it was. I'll try again but I'll be briefer. . .

      The Christian lifestyle and the homosexual lifestyle are incompatible. God's word has made that abundantly clear. You cannot repeatedly (and deliberately) sin, repeatedly ask for forgiveness and expect to spend eternity at God's side.

    I am Not Condemning them--God Does---If they choose to be that way, thats their choice, but don;t expect me to
    say it's right. All Sin is deadly--In me and everbody else. The ten Commandments are not suggestions--There are
    serious consequences to dis-obeying them, Some deadly, others even worse that deadly--Like living with the
    consequences. We cannot keep the commandments--Only Jesus could and He did it for you and me. Then God
    took my sins and put them on him and brought Judgment on my sins on Him.
    There has been no Repentence America!!! We Have Not stopped Killing Babies--We have Not put prayer back into our
    society--we have OK'd Immoral living--and the final Straw--We are Turning against Israel. All These Beg God
    for Judgment upon Us. You Want Truth and Nothing but the truth--Read the Bible--It has Never been Wrong
    and everything it says WILL happen!----But It is also a book of Promise and HOPE for the Hopeless.

Let this week be a week of divine and supernatural victory in their lives; let this be a week where they receive courage and strength in the midst of the hard place, knowing that God is for them and nothing can stand against them; let them be established, heavenly Father, as the mighty and righteous who arise and do great exploits so that the world would know that God in heaven rules and reigns supreme. Bless them exceedingly, abundantly, above all that they could ask, think or imagine. Let Your goodness and mercy follow them all the days of their lives.

    You know I am an ultra conservative and I am gay. I am so offended when I read stuff like this. There are so many things in the bible that are strange when you read them.....how about the one that says if a mans brother should lose his wife then it is you duty to be with her and pick up where the brother left off. IT IS NOT A CHOICE. Think about this.....there are cases that show both men and women that are blind and deaf.....that prefer to be with people of their on sex. How would you even know that's what you wanted if you can even SEE! Its because its inside.....you can't change who you are. GOD MADE YOU....in his image. Flaunting who you are if you are straight or gay is not proper. It just makes it harder for people to understand where you are coming from. Don't judge until you have been judged...remember.

  • Warren Fales

    Homosexuality is abusing the gift of sex. God made us sexual for the purpose of reproducing our kind. God told Adam, "Be fruitful amd multiply....." Thus this sexual abuse is mocking God, and He declares," Do not mock me, what so ever a man sowes, that shall he reap." There were heteralsexual people in Sodom who refused to head Lot's warning. He had daughters and sons-in-law who were burned up right along with the "queers" in Sodom. You broad minded "Christians" need to listen for God's opinion here. Jesus said, Judge rightly Jn.7:24. We are to form opinions. We are expected to know right from wrong, and choose what is right.

  • Lee

    It is possible for homosexuals to live for God just like anyone else, I know because I know some who do. They live celibate lives and do not practice the gay lifestyle. They realize they must follow the laws that God commanded. Fornication is a sin, be it straight or gay. Marriage is the only way intercourse is permitted before God and not be sin. God has rules on marriage, divorce, and re-marriage too, another topic gone awry, but back to the current topic. God cannot go against His own word and recognize same sex marriage - the Bible is very clear. Straight people think they can set rules that anything goes for them but no one else. Not so. Sin is sin. You have sex outside of marriage, you commit sin you go to hell. You live free from sin, God has prepared a place for you...Heaven. To sin or not to sin? It's a choice - no matter what your sexual preference is.

  • sylviacroft

    Many young people have experienced being attraction to someone of the same sex. That does not make them homosexual anymore then feeling an attraction to someone other than your wife makes you an adulterer. It's what you do about that attraction. You don't grab on to it and daydream about it because then you'll end up in trouble and more than likely doing it. We are all tempted to sin, but we still don't have to. We are not at the mercy of how or what we feel unless we choose to. "Walk in the Spirit and you will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh."

  • Aristotle

    After reading through all these pages of comments, Edward has described the core issue more correctly and logically in his thinking and debate. There really is no room for emotion in the discourse and debate of morals and theology. It is our emotions and passion that more often fuel the fires of smoke that cloud the issues and darken the light of truth. Ignorance and anger only exposes the darker sides of mankind.

    Three issues comprise the overall homosexual issues: Hormones, behavior and acceptance.

    While I agree that homosexuality and immorality is a matter of choice, and that the Bible speaks of this act as an abomination, we are all sinners from birth. The greatest gift God gave to us is the freedom and the right to make conscious choices in life. To accept or reject that which is set forth in Biblical teachings as the moralistic code that mankind should follow.

    The acronym B.I.B.L.E – could easily mean – Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. If God wanted servants, he would have made humans just like the mammals with no freedom of choice. He wants us to follow Him by our choice, not His, as the eternal rewards are far more greater than one can imagine. We choose our eternal destination after these trials and tribulations of the physical life. Innately, we all know deep down in our hearts, in the spiritual core of our being - what is right and wrong. It is when we turn a deaf ear to that inner voice do we lose sight of God and the direction He implores us to follow.

    There is scientific evidence to support a minor premise that one might be born with certain tendencies or leanings, HOWEVER, it is only in the sense of a chemical imbalance of the hormones. This might lead one to act a certain way – more feminine in males and more masculine in females. There is no wrong way to express or live your life. We are all created and born with the same measure of talents and abilities by our Creator, but after that many things can influence us.

    Talents, personalities, education and opportunities will affect our decisions and choices in life. Our behavior though, is a learned and accepted way of life. From time immemorial, the lopsided level of testosterone in males, has dominated, and thusly unfairly demonized the more effeminate of the males, and to a lesser extent, the elevated masculinity in females. That being said, society in general should accept these tendencies as a normal manner of life. Platonic relationships among same sex people are truly not much different than your relationship with your best friend.

    HOWEVER, that should not give credence or support for the physical homosexual act or practice, which is a sin and abomination to both God and the laws of nature. So, in the Bible, it says hate the sin, love the sinner, is a redress of the teaching - love thyself as thy neighbor. It is the physical act of sodomy and the accompanying lust that SHOULD NOT be tolerated, and which is such an overtly expressed despised act by God. Abortion is one step higher in this chain of despisement as it is the killing of one of God's must loved creations - mankind. To those who say homosexuality is the downfall, I say abortion is the worst of all acts by mankind that will justify God's wrath.

    The divisive issue is not about equal rights, it is the agenda of the homosexual movement. The word gay – was usurped to make it sound acceptable, is not in my vocabulary. Their agenda of forcing me to accept this sexual lifestyle as normal is what I detest and despise the most. To force me through legal and judicial twists to accept their view, AND to promote laws that prevent me from publicly voicing my opinion or beliefs on this issue as hate speech. If they so choose this lifestyle, let them do so in private, and not flagrantly demonstrate their debased actions.

    Do not underestimate the fact they are very well organized and financed by many who would see this nation destroyed through any means possible. Look at the progress they have made, while good men do nothing!

    As a candidate said last night....sex has NO place in the military. It shouldn't be a subject. There have been both gay and heterosexuals in the military but it doesn't need to be a subject or special interest to anyone. This is only going to bring a seperation in the military....This administration has gone to every point of our lives to destroy this country and forgetting Gods laws is our downfall. Ask Russia...they now want to return to their moral values that made them great before their downfall which was taking God out of their society. May God have mercy on those who fear and love him.

    While I agree with you for the most part, I had this small problem with what was wrotten:

    "Men and women who stand in the pulpit as preachers of God’s Word and tell their congregations that God says it’s okay to be that way are liars and should be defrocked and run out of the church."

    That same Word to which you refer also teaches that women should not be in the pulpit at ALL. Either submit to the whole word of God, or do not submit to any part of it.

    Instead of all the back and forth arguing if homosexuality is ok or not, if you really are honest and want to know the truth....where would you go to find ultimate truth??? God? if there is a God and he made everything then.... shouldnt He have the right to say what goes and what works or dosent work??? so if you have a problem in your life or with your life why are you arguing with men?? Your real problem is with God, is he real, is the bible inspired and put together by God to guide men?? start at the beginning and be honest , Get quiet somewhere and ask God if he is real and expect an answer ,it may take a few days but if you are sincere the ball is in Gods court to reveal himself to you. He dosent expect us to blindly and stupidly wallow around all our life angry and striving... He loves you as you are but loves you too much to let you stay the same. The real question is: once God reveals He is real and his word is true THEN whatcha gonna do??? He is the love you have been searching for all your life and He will fill the void in your heart that you have been trying to fill up with all the wrong things. I know, because he did it for me... my life was falling apart and i said God if you are real i need help and he showed up and the bible suddenly made sense and the journey of 28 years so far has been tough but He has never left me and has made many changes in me i never thought possible. If you are tired of going thru the spin cycle, then call out to God, I dare ya...

  • bmatts

    I feel that the don't ask don't tell was the right policy in dealing with the military. It's always been known that gays have served in the military and the fact that they kept it within their circle was good. Now that you have gays openly flaunting their sexual desires within the military. This could very well destory unit coesiveness and cause units to fall apart at the critical moments when you're relaying on the man on your left or right to keep you alive. The Generals were saying this all along but nobody was listening. Due to political correctness they couldn't say what they really felt without loosing their jobs. We as a nation, are going down hill fast and I don't see it stopping any time soon. GOD HELP US!!!!

    Romans Chapter 6

    1WHAT SHALL we say [to all this]? Are we to remain in sin in order that God's grace (favor and mercy) may multiply and overflow?

    2Certainly not! How can we who died to sin live in it any longer?

    3Are you ignorant of the fact that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?

    4We were buried therefore with Him by the baptism into death, so that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious [power] of the Father, so we too might [habitually] live and behave in newness of life.

    5For if we have become one with Him by sharing a death like His, we shall also be [one with Him in sharing] His resurrection [by a new life lived for God].

    6We know that our old (unrenewed) self was nailed to the cross with Him in order that [our] body [which is the instrument] of sin might be made ineffective and inactive for evil, that we might no longer be the slaves of sin.

    7For when a man dies, he is freed (loosed, delivered) from [the power of] sin [among men].

    8Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him,

    9Because we know that Christ (the Anointed One), being once raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has power over Him.

    10For by the death He died, He died to sin [ending His relation to it] once for all; and the life that He lives, He is living to God [in unbroken fellowship with Him].

    11Even so consider yourselves also dead to sin and your relation to it broken, but alive to God [living in unbroken fellowship with Him] in Christ Jesus.

    12Let not sin therefore rule as king in your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies, to make you yield to its cravings and be subject to its lusts and evil passions.

    13Do not continue offering or yielding your bodily members [and [a]faculties] to sin as instruments (tools) of wickedness. But offer and yield yourselves to God as though you have been raised from the dead to [perpetual] life, and your bodily members [and [b]faculties] to God, presenting them as implements of righteousness.

    14For sin shall not [any longer] exert dominion over you, since now you are not under Law [as slaves], but under grace [as subjects of God's favor and mercy].

    15What then [are we to conclude]? Shall we sin because we live not under Law but under God's favor and mercy? Certainly not!

    16Do you not know that if you continually surrender yourselves to anyone to do his will, you are the slaves of him whom you obey, whether that be to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience which leads to righteousness (right doing and right standing with God)?

    17But thank God, though you were once slaves of sin, you have become obedient with all your heart to the standard of teaching in which you were instructed and to which you were committed.

    18And having been set free from sin, you have become the servants of righteousness (of conformity to the divine will in thought, purpose, and action).

    19I am speaking in familiar human terms because of your natural limitations. For as you yielded your bodily members [and [c]faculties] as servants to impurity and ever increasing lawlessness, so now yield your bodily members [and [d]faculties] once for all as servants to righteousness (right being and doing) [which leads] to sanctification.

    20For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness.

    21But then what benefit (return) did you get from the things of which you are now ashamed? [None] for the end of those things is death.

    22But now since you have been set free from sin and have become the slaves of God, you have your present reward in holiness and its end is eternal life.

    23For the wages which sin pays is death, but the [bountiful] free gift of God is eternal life through (in union with) Jesus Christ our Lord.

  • REASON 1

    For all you Bigots who CLAIM TO KNOW GOD'S WORD.

    The only words supposedly spoken by God are “I am that I am,tell the people that I Am has sent you” in reply to Moses’ query as to who he should tell the people God was who gave him the Ten Commandments to give to the people. Later on when Jesus was being baptized by John the Baptist, it is reported that God parted the clouds and said,” This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased.”
    The rest is just stories written to relate a personal experience in which God is credited with having an interest in resolving the outcome. Some were written to show the importance or uselessness of a situation with the exception of the TEACHINGS of Jesus which are not taught or followed by any acknowledged organized religion.
    Concerning WAR, there comes to mind the story of the City of Benjamin, in which the army of Benjamin fought off the armies of the other eleven tribes over the sexual abuse of a Concubine/ personal prostitute of one member of another tribe by the men of the tribe of Benjamin. Many of the men of the 11 tribes were slain at first and after 3 days of this slaughter the instigator prayed to God to have the battle go his way, a much smaller number of the army of Benjamin were slain.
    As I understand this STORY the moral is that WARS are FRUITLESS and should only be fought to defend oneself against UNREASONABLE attacks. The abuse of the Concubine, who was cut into pieces, by her owner,[ a worse crime] and the pieces sent to the other tribes did not justify going to war and the resulting slaughter, because only the owners’ PRIDE was injured. He was the first to break Gods’ Commandment,” Thou shall not kill”. The rest of the tribes acted only on the owners word with no proof that an offense had been committed. NOT sufficient cause to extinguish so many souls,
    IN WAR THERE ARE NO WINNERS, ONLY SURVIVORS.
    Most wars of the past were fought to STEAL the treasures of another country and still are today. The only real treasure any country has is its’ educated productive manpower. Applying this edict to the world today distinguishes the wealthy from the poor and desolate third world countries. The Pharaohs of Egypt were among the first to show that with all their might and power they still couldn’t TAKE IT WITH THEM and neither can anyone else.

      For those of who call our self Christian let us not forget there is only one unforgivable sin and that is blasphemy of the Holy Ghost. I agree with most of the content of the article, Paul the Apostle said the law is for the lawless, therefore they should not be permitted to serve openly. As an American much as I hate the sin, I struggle with the quote (Secular Government being involved period, for sure the Federal Government, I think this is really a States rights issue). I do not think the Federal Government had any Constitutional right to force States to repeal their Sodomy laws. If you don’t like the State your living in move or work to change the State law.

      I know I am rambling and jumping around, As a Christian we are to live by GOD’S Word. Homosexuality is a sin according to the Bible. It should be treated as any other sin. And the Word should be applied and consulted in this matter of the sin itself. So this is where I take issue with many of the modern Churches, they wink at all sin these days and rely on the false doctrine of once saved always saved or they say I do not believe that a loving God would send any one to hell? Don’t have time to go into detail. For example what about the sin of fornication? This is very rampant in our nation today, some of the same Churches condemning the sin of Homosexual is sweeping the sin of fornication under the rug, making excuses for it. Like handing out condoms and say we cannot prevent it? For those of you who do not know the definition of fornication:
      1. voluntary sexual intercourse outside marriage
      2. voluntary sexual intercourse between two persons of the opposite sex, where one is or both are unmarried
      3. Bible sexual immorality in general, esp adultery

      I am not the Judge (God is the Righteous Judge). The Word of God therefore judges us now. Note John 1:1 The Word is God and God is The Word. With that in mind America’s Churches must all repent for not taking a stand against SIN period.

      Romans Chapter 6 Amplified Version

      1WHAT SHALL we say [to all this]? Are we to remain in sin in order that God’s grace (favor and mercy) may multiply and overflow?

      2Certainly not! How can we who died to sin live in it any longer?

      3Are you ignorant of the fact that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?

      4We were buried therefore with Him by the baptism into death, so that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious [power] of the Father, so we too might [habitually] live and behave in newness of life.

      5For if we have become one with Him by sharing a death like His, we shall also be [one with Him in sharing] His resurrection [by a new life lived for God].

      6We know that our old (unrenewed) self was nailed to the cross with Him in order that [our] body [which is the instrument] of sin might be made ineffective and inactive for evil, that we might no longer be the slaves of sin.

      7For when a man dies, he is freed (loosed, delivered) from [the power of] sin [among men].

      8Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him,

      9Because we know that Christ (the Anointed One), being once raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has power over Him.

      10For by the death He died, He died to sin [ending His relation to it] once for all; and the life that He lives, He is living to God [in unbroken fellowship with Him].

      11Even so consider yourselves also dead to sin and your relation to it broken, but alive to God [living in unbroken fellowship with Him] in Christ Jesus.

      12Let not sin therefore rule as king in your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies, to make you yield to its cravings and be subject to its lusts and evil passions.

      13Do not continue offering or yielding your bodily members [and [a]faculties] to sin as instruments (tools) of wickedness. But offer and yield yourselves to God as though you have been raised from the dead to [perpetual] life, and your bodily members [and [b]faculties] to God, presenting them as implements of righteousness.

      14For sin shall not [any longer] exert dominion over you, since now you are not under Law [as slaves], but under grace [as subjects of God's favor and mercy].

      15What then [are we to conclude]? Shall we sin because we live not under Law but under God’s favor and mercy? Certainly not!

      16Do you not know that if you continually surrender yourselves to anyone to do his will, you are the slaves of him whom you obey, whether that be to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience which leads to righteousness (right doing and right standing with God)?

      17But thank God, though you were once slaves of sin, you have become obedient with all your heart to the standard of teaching in which you were instructed and to which you were committed.

      18And having been set free from sin, you have become the servants of righteousness (of conformity to the divine will in thought, purpose, and action).

      19I am speaking in familiar human terms because of your natural limitations. For as you yielded your bodily members [and [c]faculties] as servants to impurity and ever increasing lawlessness, so now yield your bodily members [and [d]faculties] once for all as servants to righteousness (right being and doing) [which leads] to sanctification.

      20For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness.

      21But then what benefit (return) did you get from the things of which you are now ashamed? [None] for the end of those things is death.

      22But now since you have been set free from sin and have become the slaves of God, you have your present reward in holiness and its end is eternal life.

      23For the wages which sin pays is death, but the [bountiful] free gift of God is eternal life through (in union with) Jesus Christ our Lord.

    • glennTX1966

      Also from the book of I Corinthians Chapter 6
      1 Corinthians 6

      1DOES ANY of you dare, when he has a matter of complaint against another [brother], to go to law before unrighteous men [men neither upright nor right with God, laying it before them] instead of before the saints (the people of God)?

      2Do you not know that the saints (the believers) will [one day] judge and govern the world? And if the world [itself] is to be judged and ruled by you, are you unworthy and incompetent to try [such petty matters] of the smallest courts of justice?

      3Do you not know also that we [Christians] are to judge the [very] angels and pronounce opinion between right and wrong [for them]? How much more then [as to] matters pertaining to this world and of this life only!

      4If then you do have such cases of everyday life to decide, why do you appoint [as judges to lay them before] those who [from the standpoint] of the church count for least and are without standing?

      5I say this to move you to shame. Can it be that there really is not one man among you who [in action is governed by piety and integrity and] is wise and competent enough to decide [the private grievances, disputes, and quarrels] between members of the brotherhood,

      6But brother goes to law against brother, and that before [Gentile judges who are] unbelievers [without faith or trust in the Gospel of Christ]?

      7Why, the very fact of your having lawsuits with one another at all is a defect (a defeat, an evidence of positive moral loss for you). Why not rather let yourselves suffer wrong and be deprived of what is your due? Why not rather be cheated (defrauded and robbed)?

      8But [instead it is you] yourselves who wrong and defraud, and that even your own brethren [by so treating them]!

      9Do you not know that the unrighteous and the wrongdoers will not inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived (misled): neither the impure and immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor those who participate in homosexuality,

      10Nor cheats (swindlers and thieves), nor greedy graspers, nor drunkards, nor foulmouthed revilers and slanderers, nor extortioners and robbers will inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God.

      11And such some of you were [once]. But you were washed clean (purified by a complete atonement for sin and made free from the guilt of sin), and you were consecrated (set apart, hallowed), and you were justified [pronounced righteous, by trusting] in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the [Holy] Spirit of our God.

      12Everything is permissible (allowable and lawful) for me; but not all things are helpful (good for me to do, expedient and profitable when considered with other things). Everything is lawful for me, but I will not become the slave of anything or be brought under its power.

      13Food [is intended] for the stomach and the stomach for food, but God will finally end [the functions of] both and bring them to nothing. The body is not intended for sexual immorality, but [is intended] for the Lord, and the Lord [is intended] for the body [[a]to save, sanctify, and raise it again].

      14And God both raised the Lord to life and will also raise us up by His power.

      15Do you not see and know that your bodies are members (bodily parts) of Christ (the Messiah)? Am I therefore to take the parts of Christ and make [them] parts of a prostitute? Never! Never!

      16Or do you not know and realize that when a man joins himself to a prostitute, he becomes one body with her? The two, it is written, shall become one flesh.

      17But the person who is united to the Lord becomes one spirit with Him.

      18Shun immorality and all sexual looseness [flee from impurity in thought, word, or deed]. Any other sin which a man commits is one outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.

      19Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own,

      20You were bought with a price [purchased with a [b]preciousness and paid for, [c]made His own]. So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body.

      Remember freedom is not free! When good men do nothing evil men prevail. GRW

    The Bible contains 66 books, written by 40 different authors, over 1500 years, in 3 different languages, on 3 different continents. This collection of books shares a common storyline-the creation, fall, and redemption of God's people; a common theme-God's universal love for all of humanity: and a common message-salvation is available to all who repent of their sins and commit to following God with all of their heart, soul, mind and strength. In addition, these 66 books contain no historical errors or contradictions. God's word is an amazing collection of writings.

    Why are HOMOSEXUALS called GAY? since most of them are mean, nasty and in your face if you are against them and there brainwashing of anybody under the age of 18. The HOMO news media gave them this description to make them look as if they are so nice and gentle. It's time they back in the closet and keep the door shut. I do not advocate any violence against them, they should not be called GAY. They are HOMOSEXUALS AND NOTHING ELSE. e

  • REASON 1

    FOR any who feel obligated to reply in condemnation of my post ., I am obligated to warn you.

    God saved my life 21 times while I was in the Navy and at least a dozen more since leaving the Navy, which tells me he has a purpose in doing so including sending me back from certain death in which I was legally dead.

    Those who wish to offend me need only be FORGIVEN by me,according to the teachings of Jesus, to face immediate JUDGEMENT by the FATHER and PUNISHMENT which usually involves LOSS of your MOST PRECIOUS PERSONAL POSSESSION within 2 months of the time I forgive you.

    Considering the excess number of BIGOTS now forcing the rest of us to accept their unsupported version of GOSSIP TO JOIN THEM IN condemning other CREATIONS of GOD , YOU CAN CONSIDER MY forgiveness of YOU to be IMMEDIATE.

    YOUR MOVE.

  • GWL

    Jesus taught that all sin is the same. I agree that it is sin, but we are to save people by our loving example, not by bashing, fragging and playing God.

    I was in the Navy for 5 years over 24 years ago, pre-DADT. My roommate was (and still is) gay. I never asked him about it, he never told me about it. We didn't need a law to guide us. He was an exemplary sailor, became an officer and retired after 23 years of service as a Commander. His "gayness" never affected his work, his military bearing or professionalism.

    If he is ever saved, I can assure you it will not be as a result of any article or speach like this one. Jesus and his apostles knew how to lead people to Christ, we only need to read the Gospels and Epistles to see that. Condemnations of sin, of any kind, are for the reader... as is Jesus's message of Love and Example. Hate is a sin too. Lets eradicate it from the Church!

  • Larry

    Did you ever look up the hebrew word translated abomination-probally not. It has to do with something religiously wrong. Wearing polyester and eating pork would be an abomination to the Jew. Where is your condemnation for those wearing polyester and eating pork? You can't have it both ways. If you don't condemn those for wearing polyester and eating pork, then you should not be condemning homosexuals!

  • Mike McNary

    Whenever we read scripture we must first understand the context. I don't believe this passage is a blanket condemnation of same sex acts. Paul clearly states that he is talking about those who knew God and exchanged that knowledge for a worship of idols. I don't know of any any gay folks who practice idol worship, do you? The next step down from there is immoral heterosexual acts (v24) and than same sex acts. Such sexual practices were common in idol temples as part of their rituals. Both heterosexual and homosexual practices are condemed in this chapter. It seems very clear that Paul must be talking about sexual acts used in idol worshipping temples unless you want to argue,like some cults do, that all sexual relations are evil.

        Actually, it is you who should go READ it, and this time actually take in the meaning of the words Jesus says. Your fear mongering on the internet is the stuff of legends. Your hatred of everything not you is the stuff which brings tears to God's eyes. Your inability to understand even the simplest logical discussion is enough to make the eyes of anyone with even a low I.Q. role.

      No were are not in for a rude awakening John. You are. Jesus came to uphold the law and the prophets. Not surpass them as you erroneously believe.

      • bodey041

        It has been pointed out to you before, Jesus came to fulfill the Law not uphold the Law. Please get your scripture correct if you are going to dare use it in your vain attempt to justify your hatred of everything not about you.

  • guest

    well, mister author of this article, you are so sad yourself! I am bi-sexual, meaning I like both sexes, but i also know how to keep my pecker at bay appropriately. You are probably in the group of unattractive guys who think that homos want you sexually. I've seen this many times. You are NOT attractive and you think that all gay boys want you. Ha. You are so deluded. You are afraid of the unobtainable, with either sex. Unless you are rich, you are not getting the woman you want. So, this whole article is all about you not being able to get what you want, so that you end up denigrating the proper inclusion of men of all proclivities that exist in our country, to have proper respect. Only the unsure about their own sexuality have a problem with it, that is a huge fact. Your homophobia is all about the fact that you are NOT attractive to the opposite sex because you are NOT physically attractive, and you despise the alternative. There ya have it, deal with it.

    Sadly, I am so fed up with the perverted disgusting queers trying to control & change our country that it makes a person full of DISGUST for all of them. The first person that needs to pay big time for allowing this to continue is OBAMA. WE HAVE TO GET RID OF OBAMA, replace him with a true patriot of America, a true CHRISTIAN, one that REPEAL, PUT A STOP to all of OBAMA'S SATAN ORDERS, ALONG WITH HIS MEDUSA RACIST WIFE. HOPEFULLY, GOD WILL TAKE THEM BOTH & TOSS THEM INTO HELL WHERE THEY BELONG FOR THE SAKE OF OUR COUNTRY.

  • Ranchman

    The comments from the homosexuals about this article are so unsurprising and typical. They scream "tolerance, you MUST show tolerance" and yet they themselves are the most intolerant, vile, despicable creatures existing and they have already lost their souls. I read their posts and weep, not for them...no, it is too late for them. They have been handed over to the lusts of their desires, the lust of the flesh. No, I weep for America. God's judgement IS coming, of that there is no doubt. God fearing, bible believing Christians needed to band together and organize against the filth of homosexuality many years ago. We saw it coming, yet we did not act. Will the Lord hold us blameless for allowing the decadence of homosexuality to flourish? No, and neither should He. We have forced our children to inherit a nation and a world where the Laws of God are inconsequential and irrelevant. A world of filth and perversion. Now it will be up to them to fight the battles which will be so much harder to win, because their parent's generation allowed this evil to flourish and gain a strong foot hold. We let these animals which pervert God's natural laws to be emboldened and strengthened. We are going to have to band together and force them back into the dark shadows for they are not going to stop with their recent victories. They will continue to demand more and more, forcing more and more filth and perversion on us. They will demand the right to have sex with children next, old men with little boys, saying it is "natural" and it's "how they were born." I REFUSE!!! I will not bow down to their immoral, unnatural filth and perversion. The story has been written, the end is known. Righteousness will triumph in the end, this cannot be changed. But I refuse to be on the wrong side, the side against God, in the end. I refuse to allow the homosexuals to force me to condone their wicked lifestyle. They will have to go to Hell without me.

    For all the atheist Homo's out there, your position of sodomy being a acceptable life style is not supported by nature herself. It doesn't take a scientist to understand that man and woman were created separately in order to come together, copulate and then procreate. It is IMPOSSIBLE for two men to have anal sex with each other and produce a child, IMPOSSIBLE. It is also IMPOSSIBLE for two women to come together and engage in oral sex or use an artificial penis and then procreate. Nature dictates that a man copulate with a woman until the man's sperms is introduced in a sufficient enough manner that it comes into contact with the woman's egg for fertilization. Whether or not you are sexually attracted to a woman or not, men your penis has two main jobs, 1 is to rid your body of waste by the way of urine, 2 to insert in a woman vagina in order to procreate. The same is true of women, the vagina has 3 main functions, urination, acceptance of man's penis, with the final outcome of producing a baby. Just cause there are men who can only get horny by sodomizing other men or women who can only find sexual satisfaction by oral sex, or finger/tongue/dildo stimulation doesn't mean it's "natural" it is very unnatural and an abomination of the natural order of human existence!

    Maybe if you idiots that believe in this would read the last page of Revelation in your Bible you would see that it says that no man shall add or take away from the word of God. How can a man preach or teach the word of God and deliberately go against his word. If forced to go against God's word to have a job is a sin of our wonderful country we are living in. Our country has always been "One Nation Under God"and now our government and military wants to perform sinful things because of someone's "Whacky Sick Religion" which is not a religion at all it is just showing they hate God and if they could they would destroy all the goodness about Him.__ I hope you people will wake up and let God be a part of your life instead of going to Hell because you are headed in that direction.__ It isn't too late to turn your corrupt life around.__ Prayers out to you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!t

    I would rather stop serving my country than stop sevring God. There are other jobs but only one God

  • dallasboi

    All I have read on this site, in this regard is hate. Isn't there enough of that in the world? You talk about judgement, but isn't God going to judge you for your sins too. Concentrate on your walk with him, forget what others are doing? If you are a true Christian, you witness, but you cannot save everyone. You begin to witness, they deny, you've planted that seed, walk away, live, pray, and let God do his work! You so called Christians feel like the world is persecuting you bc of political issues like this walk on your beliefs, well all I see is you persecuting others, no wander you can't get more converts to become Christ "like". You shame the personification that is Christ, and that is love, NOT HATE.

    • Ikezion

      listen to me dallas. the safest thing you can do for yourself is ponder upon the Christian template of the afterlife. What happens if you die and discover that everything Christians have been preaching is true? Answer is you burn in hell. So why not believe with all your heart. If it happens that you were wrong in accepting Christianity after death, you got nothing to loose. Play safe
