    I just am of the mind that folks that try to use religion to defend their bigoted views should actually take the whole book into context, not just the very few passages they like. The book on the whole rarely mentions it.


Okay, since you're sharing your mind.. Was the bakery owner who refused to make a wedding cake for the gay couple a bigot? And in your opinion, should he have been forced to make the cake?




You are mixing multiple issues. My post is pretty clear what I mean. It is inconsistent with the text with which the deeply held belief is kept.

It is picking and choosing a small part of the Bible to represent the faith of the whole. Not loving thy neighbor or anything else.

I know many that expose this view of gays and use the Bible also ignore all the various things Jesus said about greed, or how hard it is for a rich man to get into God's Kingdom or various other dictates. It is selective reasoning at its finest.

One that you are attempting to use now to muddy waters. The people that are using the Bible to go after gays as a tenant of Christianity are hypocrites. Pure and simple. And given that, draw what conclusions that you will.

He has the Constitutional right to believe it, but that does not change much. Even in that case in particular, the SCOTUS had a very narrow ruling that required both sides to be addressed fairly in considerations.
