    It's strange how quickly some Christians are willing to 'cast stones' at LGBTQ but have been very tolerant of the sexual scandals involving the current president. Selective moral outrage, I guess.

    According to the bible, lying is also an abomination. So, where's all the moral indignation and outrage against lying from the Christians who are so keen to condemn the abomination of homosexuality?

    That's a myth, and the purpose seems to be, in this case anyway, because I have sinned homosexuality is OK or should not be condemned. Probably something you need to take up with God, his rules.

    I don't forget about my own sin and I don't live in that sin as a lifestyle. To explain further, I don't say my sin is ok or promote it as such. That is the very reason the Gay thing is focused on. To be even clearer, what if a group promoted murder, lying or whatever sin, and tried to twist the word of God into something that condoned that sin? Christians would be all over them, and actually, so would some Atheists.

    Most reasonable people, not indoctrinated to believe otherwise, would struggle to understand how being gay could possibly be equivalent to murder. Only the most deficient of ethics could make an equivocation here.

    At any rate, it doesn't sound like these folks are liberals so much as sensitive gay people that feel the burden of a history of religion discriminating against them. And it's their right to be angry. The Salvation Army does not deserve automatic respect merely for their social works. Lots of churches do those. But not all churches discriminate against gays.

    In the original version of the ten commandments found in Exodus 34, the tenth commandment is “Do not cook a young goat in its mother’s milk.” This version is the only one of the versions in the Bible that self identifies as "the ten commandments". Is this a "little game"?

    Well then color me ethically deficient then, because it's clear to any moral person that homosexuality is worse than murder.

    I'd dare say, most likely, yes, it is a game.

    If you two feel that is a damnable sin, then don't do that. I don't concern myself, because, It's something I never even considered doing anyway..

    I would certainly have to verify that finding...on second thought, show me, and I do hope you aren't wasting our time, I mean it's funny after all these years I've never heard such a thing.

    Either way, does that make homosexuality not a sin somehow? Or does the "little game" just somehow indicate that, while you won't exactly say it?

    Easily verified --- the three versions of the ten commandments are:
    Exodus 34:1-28, Exodus 20:1-17 and Deuteronomy 5:1-21 (listed in order from oldest to most recent).

    An issue I see often is that people are willing to criminalize sins that they would never themselves commit, such as homosexuality, but are loathe to criminalize things they might do. Preventing homosexuals from marrying is seen as a positive while preventing remarriage after divorce, forbidden in the New Testament, gets a big pass and is not seen as necessary to prevent.

    Can you tell me where I could find this ranking of sins in the Bible?
