Gay people can (and should) quote the Bible too

If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her ... and say, I took this woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid: Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel's virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate: And the damsel's father shall say unto the elders, I gave my daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her; And, lo, he hath given occasions of speech against her, saying, I found not thy daughter a maid; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter's virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city. And the elders of that city shall take that man and chastise him ... But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die. Deuteronomy 22:13-21

Odd how they never seem to remember these types of verses when they are making their claims.

I thought here will be the verses about David&Johnathan, the centurion's servant (son?), and "love" your neighbour, God's male partner etc. The verses that do support gay relations.

Maybe it'd worth a later entry for you Steve?

God also likes for some people to marry those who aren't virgins. Like in Hosea.
1:2 The beginning of the word of the LORD by Hosea. And the LORD said to Hosea, Go, take unto thee a wife of whoredoms and children of whoredoms: for the land hath committed great whoredom, departing from the LORD.

He also tells this happy couple to name their kids "not my people" and "not loved." What a swell God, huh? Not only does he arbitrarily enforce his own horrid rules, he helps his people form loving families as well! Truly, marriage is a sacred institution that has been ordained by this God, and only certain people should have access to it. That is made obvious by these Bible passages.

Well according to the bible Yahweh & Jesus were never married or even experience sexual desire - how can anyone expect meaningful advice from a source like that?

I think Misty's point is that you can use the bible to justify anything you like. I agree with her wholeheartedly (she's remarkably wise for a woman).

I believe in the inferiority of women, abortion, slavery, circumcision and genocide. I'm dead against crayfish, divorce (under any circumstances), lepers and physicians.

busterggi,

I dunno, if you read some of those verses about the "disciple Jesus loved" from the Gospel of John a certain way, it certainly looks like Jesus had sexual desires....just not heterosexual ones.

This is probably one of the smartest uses of the Bible I've ever seen; go, gay people! :-)

I'd really enjoy seeing gay rights supporters demonstrating outside the offices of Sanford, Ensign, Vitter & all the other Religious Reichers carrying signs quoting the bible about stoning adulterers to death. I'd participate if possible.

I believe the book of John, which, was written anonymously, was written by Mary Magdalene. This would explain the desire and why the book depicts 'John' as doing less than manly thing, behaving like a woman. This could easily be explained by the Catholic church attempting to keep women out of power or authority.
