    Because it is absolutely repulsive and destroys gender roles.

    No matter what anyone else says, you are following what you believe. You are just as much a good christian as everyone else who says they are christian. Even if I disagreed with you, it's your belief and your right to learn from what was laid out before you. You have an open mind, be proud of that.

    I agree 100%! That's why GOD gave all of us our own minds to think for ourselves.

    You have the right to feel how ever you want,just as much as anyone else,so don't let other people tell you how to feel.

    I know a few Christian friends that are gay and believe in the freedom of choice regardless of what the choice is.
    I am not going to fight their battle with the Christians that want to respond to me.
    I am just telling you that I have friends that feel this way.

    Although christian I don't support gay marriage however I don't care if same sex people get married. It's an American right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

    Christianity supports abortion (or rather it is not against it, at least biblically speaking)
    And in the case of the New Testament, Jesus says nothing against Gays.

    So in aspect of Christianity, I think you are safe

    I mean, it's up to you and God I guess, but it all goes giants everything Christians believe in. Christians do not support either thing. I think, however, it's okay to respect someone's opinion, if they do. Respect doesn't mean agreeing.

    Just as it's okay to be a pro-choice Christian who is opposed to gay marriage.
    Just as it's okay to be a pro -life Christian who supports gay marriage.
    Just as it's okay to be a pro-choice atheist who is opposed to gay marriage, etc. etc.

    Despite what the many screamers on this site will tell you, it's perfectly okay to have any opinion and it really doesn't matter what religious belief (or disbelief) you align yourself with or political party you identify yourself with. You CAN have YOUR opinion.

    I certainly hope so since I'm in the same boat. Each of us must determine for himself the specifics of his morality and then live accordingly, the hard part. Todd Parsons would "judge" you according to his morality. To me, your behavior defines your Christianity.
    P.S. I oppose abortion and would try to convince a pregnant woman to keep her fetus.

    are you saying there aren't thousands of gay Christians? I'm sure that's news to the millions of them who are.

    I mean like...all right, there are a lot of gay Christians. But in comparison to what the general population is, it's not that much.
  • twocrows novelis... 2013/05/04 16:03:07

    7% to be exact. that's the number of gays in the population of the world so, I would assume, you can extrapolate that number to any fairly large group. Christians are an enormous group therefore - - - -

    I think the number of "Christians" in America is severely misleading. Most are not practicing, a lot are seriously confused. Oh, and then you have those self-proclaimed, arrogant jack asses (For example, the Westboro Baptist Church, which even most Christians can't stand, and I know some Christians that are really hard to irritate).

    if you don't believe me, check out
    Luke 19: 1-10
    and
    Luke 10: 25 - 37

    two of the most hated groups of the time were the tax collectors and the Samaritans. Jesus told us how to deal with people who are generally hated. hate was not his prescription.

    the Bible, particularly the Old Testament, is chock full of contradictions but Jesus never wavered in his message of love and acceptance.
    think about it.
    never.

    so who are we to say otherwise?

    Accepting Jesus as Messiah is the accepted version of Christianity, but it is not the first step. The first step is admitting you are a sinner. How do we know what sins are? We read about them in the Bible, so if you are so proud that you say "This is OK" or "I do not need forgiveness for this sin or that sin," then you have not taken the first step to becoming a Christian, which is to admit you are a sinner.

    Realizing that there are many devoutly religious people that are conservatives I believe that Christian conservative is an oxymoron. I try my best to follow the teachings of Jesus and that in no way coincides with the way I see conservatives live their life. If a person is not judgemental and un-bending there is no place for him in the conservative movement in America today.

    As an old Goldwater fiscal conservative, I disagree. Maybe I'm a RINO (Reason Instead of Nutty Opinions) but I still very much value conservatism: “Out of every hundred new ideas ninety-nine or more will probably be inferior to the traditional responses which they propose to replace. No one man, however brilliant or well-informed, can come in one lifetime to such fullness of understanding as to safely judge and dismiss the customs of institutions of his society, for these are the wisdom of generations after centuries of experiment in the laboratory of history.” From The Lessons of History by the Durants

    Of course, it is, being a Christian doesn't mean you have to be ignorant. I am pro choice, for gay marriages - okay I call myself agnostic - but it wouldn't matter either way. all my in-laws are Christians, pro choice and in favour of gay marriages, You aren't alone!

    Fine with me, but if "they" catch you you will be tied to a stake and burned just like the heretics and witches of earlier times. RWNJs play for keeps now, as "God" tells them
    to do.

    IMO, it's OK. And it's no one's place to tell you that you are wrong for supporting gay marriage. I think, being a "Christian" should be about love and respect for others, regardless of their lifestyle. It's sad to see so called Christians walking around hating others for how they choose to live their lives. Even "Christians" hating people of different races, religions, etc. I have all kinds of friends, Straight, Gay, Bi, Lesbian, Muslim, Catholic, Jewish, Wiccan, etc. I don't judge, because it's not my place and I don't want someone judging me for my personal choices. If someone wants to get married, GAY, straight, or whatever, then they should have the right to get married. It's their life and we all have our own to live. Life is too short for the BS.
