I've noticed a lot more churches becoming more "gay friendly" lately. Honestly, fast forward 10 or 20 years and there will be way less homophobia in the world, the church included!

I wish we could really fast forward like that, I'm sick and tired of my friends getting picked on for being who they are.

Your telling me!

Homosexuality is very mainstream now. It's in the TV shows, on the news, in the schools, etc. It's only a matter of time before political leaders, and other influential members of society, come up to rank with the belief that being gay is nothing to be afraid of! The waiting game is definitely going to suck though. :(

When the same sex marriage controversy was raging, I personally was fine with it but a dear Evangelical Christian friend was vehemently opposed and could quote chapter and verse from the Bible. She had been venting for days and couldn't understand why I wasn't upset. I'd had about enough and looked her square in the eye and said, because it doesn't affect me one way or the other nor does it affect you. Who the hell are you to deny these people marrying the ones they love. Did that stop her rant, nope, she came up with more scriptures and I had to walk away. This is what not only homosexuals have to deal with, so do atheists. I was taught to be tolerant by a wise father.

and that's the mind of person who gives Christians a a bad rap, we can't force people to live a certain way or believe a certain thing.

What always amazes me is that the very people that will quote the bible to condemn homosexuals refuse to acknowledge the laws that they themselves break or ignore.
Their excuse is usually that times have changed. Why can't they apply that reasoning to this issue.
The fact is two men or two women getting married has no bearing on your relationship. It does not demean your marriage and only can if YOU allow it.
Those 1100 rights denied same sex couples are so important to heterosexuals that IMO they should demand that all couples are assured them.
Denying anyone fundamental rights is what demeans your relationship. Shalom

If one delves historically into the Bible it is not an original book. It was written by hundreds of writers long after Jesus supposedly lived. There were something like 5500 pages written by less than well educated writers, starting with Greek. Then somewhere along the line, various parts of these 5500 pages were translated time and again. We all know that getting a precise meaning when translating can get difficult. So the bible became translations of translations with enormous amounts of editing which has caused discrepancies in events, times and places. It was the invention of the printing press that resulted in the greatest amount of editing. We don't know how many of the "scholars" changed stories to make them sound better. Our media does this all the time and people believe it. Somewhere in the bible it tells "Christians" to stone their children who don't believe in God. I wonder how many of the homosexual condemners have stoned their children?
