It wouldn't surprise me if Tebow despised homosexuality.

Being a Christian should never be a justification for bigotry.
You are taking the Bible way out of context and you know it. People love to do this. Not only people like you who don't know what they are talking about, but people who want to start cults based on 1 or 2 verses out of the Bible that they completely missread and missapply.

No, it's origins and veracity come from the Old Testament....specifically Leviticus. The 'agenda' is being factual.
So calling homosexuality a sin is hatred? Is Tebow and his Christian gang of homophobes shooting gays or beating them?

BTW, they're not afraid of homos....they're afraid of what will happen to them when God passes judgement on the world.

When is that due? Everytime I hide in the shipping container bunker buried in the back yard for a week or 2 to see if the 2nd comming is over it turns out nothing happened.

Whenever I see articles like this, I think to myself..."aww, bless their hearts".

I live my life the way I see fit. Any wrong I have done, and any bad decision I have made will be hashed out one of these days. It wont be because some halfwit preacher screams and gesticulates from a mega church pulpit. Always amuses me, the you should have a personal relationship with God...and it should be the same as my personal relationship with God. If God exists, then He clearly made me this particular way, so sending me to hell for so called design flaws seems unnaturally cruel, and I am not sure in that case that god would be one I would want to worship or know in the slightest.

As for Tebow...the sooner he comes out the better off he will be.

The day god passes judgement on the world! You'll be waiting an eternity for that to happen

And if you call it a sin, it's at least intolerance

Have to wonder if those people that judge and are anti gay see themselves at all in those scriptures. Probably not.
Romney had to win for Mormonism to be cool. Now it's just a silly cult again.

No Chris, haven't you heard? Homosexuality is a choice and a sin. My preacher said so and he speaks to god everyday and god told him..

Yeah, all those clowns who followed Jesus and called themselves Christians in the first century obviously were too stupid to understand they had to wait till Timothy/Corinthians to fully understand.

All sex outside of marriage is a sin. Does not matter if its between a hetero couple or a gay couple. Homosexuals cannot marry in the Bible. The basic principle is you choose to have sex, plain and simple. It's a choice. If you are gay, you must choose to abstain from sex with a man just like a hetero guy must choost to abstain from sex with a woman unless he's married to her. Masturbation is also a sin.

It's a choice. Don't kid yourself. All sex is a choice.

It is not different from today view to ancient era perspective. Slavery is evil practice no matter when or where it is done.

"Ancient" slavery lacked the racial component that developed in the 17th and 18th centuries.

Harlots in ancient Sparta might disagree. Slavery is slavery no matter what. Just because there is racial component in the American experience doesn't make it any better or worse. To make the argument that slavery was better in ancient world is falsity. Proof can be seen with the number of slave rebellion that have occurred. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slave_rebellion

I'm not saying ancient slavery was better. Slavery is slavery. I was pointing out that ancient slavery was less inclined to be based on skin tone and more likely to be based on you losing a war or being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

To me, it's very sad that people take some ancient text into account when making any decision about their life, sexual or otherwise.

"The CIA estimates that the current world wide sex ratio at birth is 107 boys to 100 girls. In 2010, the global sex ratio was 986 females per 1,000 males and trended to reduce to 984 in 2011."

Tebow is probably gay anyways

Maybe him and Teo will hit it off

That is assuming Tebow is still in the league, which is not a given anymore

The 'preacher' in this thread certainly believes so:
Quote:
"He once accused gay activists of trying to hide “the link between homosexuality and pedophilia.”

BTW, they're not afraid of homos....they're afraid of what will happen to them when God passes judgement on the world.
In the meantime, they'll/you'll do the judging and condemning, just in case God isn't paying attention. Right, got it.

I know that when I am in a quandary regarding a modern issue of ethics, morality and values, I turn to the primitive desert peoples of 2,000 years ago for guidance. I mean, what other option do we have?
