As a black person, I had to digress to a special place deep in my soul to pray with every fiber of my being that you are just a troll.

I understand the love you neighbor concept

But unfortunately this post probably borders on the same level as the copy pasta of the atheist college professor and the lone christian student

Essentially the professor challenges the student by saying that if God existed he wouldn't let this (whatever or so) item from breaking when he drops it.

The professor drops it and it rolls down his pants leg and low and behold it did not break.

The pastor in this post is biblically wrong.

The old laws probably state harsh things of divorce (not sure about "stoning" thing, death for adultery, but I'm not so sure about flat divorce, I could be wrong though) However these are the old laws, and after Jesus's coming, were rendered null such as the need for sacrifice was, also the harshest old laws generally only belonged to certain sects as the Leviticus laws belong to the Levites (the tribe ofpriests)

Jesus may not talk about homosexuality, but that is because the ones he taught (educated Jewish men, and other Jews) knew well of what the old testament had to say of homosexuality, its the same reason Jesus didn't speak much of murder and theft (which doesn't make either of these "ok").

Paul, however, taught many gentiles who would not be as well versed, and Paul spoke a great deal of homosexuality condemning the act (not the person). And Paul is arguably the #2 authority outside of the trinity.

As a Christian you love the homosexual, you do not, however, love or approve of his actions.

Does this mean you kill him? Or aggressively scold him? Or screw him in some way? No it doesn't, but it does mean you should try and teach them, after all you are not trying to save something as petty as their earthly life, you are trying to save them from eternal suffering (the lack of trying can be morally argued as worse than murder assuming Christianity is 100% true)

I do not hate homosexuals, but I do not approve of their actions, and this (not OP'S post) is biblically sound

AS A PRACTICING CATHOLIC (please don't kill me, FJ), I have to ask why people think that rules against homosexuality are automatically hatred? I'm not telling or asking any of you to agree with Catholic teaching, but do parents make rules out of hate? Do laws/rules solely exist because of hatred? As for divorce and stoning wives, divorce is actually still not accepted by most Christians and all Catholics. It's still believed to be a grave sin, unless there's an anullment, in which case, the marriage never existed. Now, stoning... (please read the whole thing before you get mad) is actually not condemned. Except... Jesus said you could only stone if you were without sin. Every man is born with sin; therefore, no one may stone people. The idea is that many sins are worthy of death, but mercy is compatible with justice in this life. I'M SIMPLY POINTING OUT THE CATHOLIC BELIEF SYSTEM, I'm not telling you to agree.

Comparing parents making rules and laws don't really apply here. Things like murder being illegal and parents not letting their children drink before reaching maturity are made to prevent harms inherent from the action. Homosexuality doesn't cause any negative side effects and there is no legitimate interest involved in preventing it other than tradition. I understand you're trying to describe the reasoning of your faith but comparing anti-homosexual rules are comparable to parents making rules or important government interest is understating the importance of ones own right to feel safe and not persecuted for things that they cannot change about themselves.

"we choose to overlook the consequences of divorce".

I really don't get it. How can you just pick and choose what you want to believe in the bible, and interpret it how you want? Is gods words not final? They are up for argument? hes all powerful and all knowing, and you question his book?

I have no problem if people are gay
I don't care if people are fat or overweight either
As long as they don't wear tight ass clothes or when they say they're gay I'm like "cool I don't give a **** ."
<this **** is what disgusts me

They don't have to support their cause. That is a ridiculous argument. The church doesn't support what they think is a sin simply because the world deems it normal. They be good to the sinners and try to bring them to the church with kindness like Paul or Jesus did. There is no way this can be real, because that is the stupidest argument I have ever heard. Considering the passage &quot;Live in the world, but not of it&quot; counters that pastors statement entirely.

I'm all for gay couples to have the same rights as anyone but marriage itself is man and wife thing. I think that partnerships or civil unions should be the option but also give them rights.

Also sex before marriage is a sin but is allowed just like divorce is a sin and is allowed. There are many things that are sins but they are allowed. Christianity teaches to love anyone even gay people. Just because Christians don't agree with gay people, it doesn't mean the hate them.

I left my old church that was 5 minutes from my house to go to a church an hour and a half away because the pastor there is just like this one.

The Bible is not a textbook, therefore, I believe it is not something that must be seen as absolute fact. Rather, I find it to be comforting and sometimes inspirational like many other books. I am inspired by some of the messages in the Bible like I am inspired by some of the messages I may find reading a fiction book or a scholarly novel. However, likewise, there are also messages in the Bible and these other books that I do not agree with, therefore, I do not live my life according to them.

As a Christian, I believe it is my responsibility to be a good person to others. That is all. I believe that you can be a good person without God, but I just happen to be a good person who believes in God due to the fact that my family is religious.

I do not believe that God is proud of Christians such as the Westboro Baptist Church, because they are not good, loving, accepting people. They are evil people who attempt to justify themselves under the banner of Christianity, and to that effect discriminate against those who live their lives a little differently to theirs.

I will always value a kindly atheist over a hateful Christian. And I do believe God will do the same.

TL;DR: This pastor is the kind of person I believe we should all strive to be, religious or not.
