You're really not making any sense here. You love your friend, yet you don't support him as a person. He is a gay male. A GAY MALE. that is WHO HE IS. God sees all sins as equal...don't you have tattoos? Isn't that part about not getting tattoos in the same part of Leviticus that says gayz r bad? Funny

I'm not sure if that's making sense to me. It also seems to slightly retcon what you've said before, but maybe I'm just interpreting it wrong. Elaborate, please?

And speaking of interpretation, perhaps the church is interpreting the Bible wrong?

And speaking of the Bible, isn't the version that we have today just a heavily edited version by the Catholics? And besides, wasn't it written a long, long time after Jesus' supposed death? Maybe what we've got today is all wrong anyway.

And you don't go around treating people like garbage, regardless of what or who they are. That's as bad as the sin you think they're committing.
If you really feel that way, I have trouble understanding why you still see homosexuality as a sin. You've said it yourself that humans view each sin through a different colored lens. You view some as less wrong than others, why not view homosexuality as something to "support." Why is it not to you? It's innate and has been documented in pretty much era of history. Racists used to use the Bible to justify their prejudice. I find it pretty unnerving that you claim to be all about love and acceptance yet you won't even go so far as to "support" the "lifestyle." Your flowery language is getting old -- put your money where your mouth is. The "...but I have a gay friend!" is a weak argument.

The Bible is just mass confusion I guess.

I don't see why people bother with it. Just because they're told that some divine being had a hand in it? I could say that There's No Toilet Paper . . . on the Road Less Traveled: The Best of Travel Humor and Misadventure had a divine hand in it. Would people start following it too?

This purely a question. I'm not trying to attack people who agree with Homosexuality:

If it's ok to be Gay/Lesbian/Transsexual, why aren't you guys gay?

I'm sure there is a hole in the question somewhere.

Again, it's just a question.

Male men? Are there other kinds of men?

The opposite actually, what I was saying, is that I could never compare, and I admit to my sinning.

I do love him, and I support him as person, just not everything he does. And you're wrong, he might be gay, but that's not who he is. He's much more than just a gay male. I'm a straight female, but there's a lot more pieces to my puzzle than my sexual orientation. Same as I have an uncle who is a drunk, and I still love him. He's a great person with a heart of gold, but that doesn't mean I like his drinking habit. && yes, I do have tattoos, I'm sure I also commit other sins on a daily basis. My sins are no better or worse. If I haven't made that clear enough yet, my apologies.

I can't speak for every preacher in every church or the way they interpret the Bible. I'm not going into the versions of the Bible or Catholicism simply because I don't see how it relates. this is all off topic enough as it is.
