    That one person denies the Bible says something is not evidence that the Bible does not actually say it

    Apparently those "military discipline" and "Unit morale" things are overrated when it gets in the way of telling gays they are sinners who are going to hell.

    If a person has a problem with chaplains not being able to make bigoted statements about homosexuality I might be able to empathize with their complaint to a certain degree. Free speech is important. Workplace professionalism and certain restrictions are often enforced in the military though. I don't understand the idea that gay people shouldn't be allowed to serve unless they are in the closet though. I don't empathize with that way of thinking at all. It's about as stupid as saying that straight people need to follow DADT.

    We've already had a discussion over the verses in the Bible pertaining to homosexuality. Where were you? You were posting in this thread, but didn't give your opinion on what the Bible actually says. So lets hear it Mach. What does the Bible say about homosexuality?

    Doesn't Leviticus say that you are supposed to kill them and stuff?

    Yeah, along with bratty kids.
    Your supposed to kill them too.

    So I guess Mac Zero thinks it would be ok for Ministers to counsel soldiers that they should kill Homosexuals and unruly children.

    If one were to cherry pick individual verses, you can claim that, but if you take the bible as a whole and also take verses in context, then what the post says is untrue.

    Verses get cherry picked all the time. Heck, sometimes I see conservatives 'flame-via-scripture' with the "Heart of the wise on the right, heart of the fool on the left" verse.
