It’s sad that so many who profess to be Christians think homosexuality is okay when God says it reveals His wrath.

Sheesh, what did they ever do to Him?

And He said to them, “Are you so lacking in understanding also? Do you not understand that whatever goes into the man from outside cannot defile him, because it does not go into his heart, but into his stomach, and is eliminated?” (Thus He declared all foods clean.)
— Mark 7:18-19


The people who think bacon is a vile abomination are not demanding those who do eat bacon to stop and they don't advocate prejudice and discrimination against the bacon eaters and they don't toss around the word abomination when ever they get into a conversation about those who do eat bacon.

I’ve never said that homosexuals cannot get married. Out of the military, yes, for the same reason that I wouldn’t put a man in a woman’s barracks. Schools? That would depend on some factors.

Serious question: why would the reason be the same?

Illegal? Not sure. Hopefully they’d repent. Other than that, I’m not opposed to them going back into the closet.

If you encourage them to go back onto the closet, aren't you encouraging a sin of lying?

I’ll ask again. Are you calling out their sin? Or just loving them all the way to hell?

No because I'm not a jerk, or inconsiderate. You think they haven't ehard about it being a sin in the US? All your doing is drivingthem to suicide and self loathing.

So your way of helping people is driving them to suicide? Good to know.

It’s what happens when men reject God. He turns them over to their sin. So they either commit abominable sins, or they approve of them.

There’s still time to repent and believe the gospel.

you justify it, you encourage it, you dehumanize LGBT's to make that sort of behavior more acceptable.
They are the ones doing the dehumanizing. I’m just stating that it’s sin.

Okay. I’m not sure of the relevance of this, though.

Women shouldn’t be forced to live with men who are sexually attracted to them. A heterosexual male shouldn’t be showering with females.

Hopefully I don’t need to explain further

Ultimately, I hope they repent and believe the gospel. If not, and they are going to die in their sin, then let’s make it less problematic to society.

Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of 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 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, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper,
— Romans 1:22-28

By now it should be obvious that I've rejected your God six ways from Sunday... and I'm straight.

What makes me any different from them?

Ok... So are you suggesting that a group of heterosexual men, in the presence of a homosexual man, are no different from women?

Also, regarding your "schools" comment -- are you referring to homosexual students as well as teachers?

Ultimately, I hope they repent and believe the gospel. If not, and they are going to die in their sin, then let’s make it less problematic to society.

How is it problematic to society?
