In the last Election, Colorado legalized
Gay Marriage and Non-Medical Marijuana on the same day!

Although roundly criticized by right wing groups,
a religious scholar has pointed out a possible
Biblical precedent for such action:

Leviticus 20:13

"If a man lays with another man, he should be stoned."

Perhaps we just had the wrong interpretation!

A couple of points. First, the US is governed by theConstitution of the United States, not the Christian, or an other Bible. So making law in accordance with your particular religious beliefs is not what we are about as a Nation.

Beyond that, selecting only certain parts of the Old Testament to support your views as a Christian has two problems:

1) Christians in general are not bound by the Old Testament. The New Testament is received as the new word of God as revealed in the life of Jesus. The Old Testament is viewed as being concerned with Jewish law.

2) Approaching the Bible, any part of it, in the same manner as a cafeteria where you pick and choose what you like and do not like is problematic. How can some parts be God's word and others not.

For instance:

"Neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woolen come upon thee." -- Leviticus 19:19

The Bible forbids wearing cloth made out of a mix of wool and linen, but other fiber combinations are fine.

Of them you may eat: the locust according to its kind." -- Leviticus 11:22

While the Bible strictly forbids eating shellfish, pork, rabbits, blood and certain birds of prey such as eagles and vultures, locusts (those bugs that are considered a "plague" in another part of the Good Book) are perfect for snack time or anytime.

"When a woman has a discharge of blood, which is her regular discharge from her body, she shall be in her impurity for seven days, and whoever touches her shall be unclean until evening." -- Leviticus 15:19-20

"When men fight with one another, and the wife of the one draws near to rescue her husband from the hand of him who is beating him, and puts out her hand and seizes him by the private parts, then you shall cut off her hand." -- Deuteronomy 25:11-12

These are just a few examples of Old Testament law.

Here's a list of the Old Testament Laws:

So using just the one passage to support your disdain for gay people is really silly.

What a Neon Identifier

Some of the Funniest stuff I've read in a long time !
Especially the 1st Paragraph !!!

Can't spread the GAP using a Wedge: Oldest Trick In The Book

Most Know Where Their:

Constitution, Bill of Right's, and Declaration of Independence, even the Proclamation of Emancipation came from

Sad that most have never really studied any of them

It's a mute point Phadrus:

I think we closed the GAP on that one

Going to have to find a different crack to pry on They are Reading /Listening /Hearing /Studying

The bible was written by man, NOT God. God gave us the ten commandments, he did not write the bible.

I'm sorry, but to belive in anything the bible says is to belive in the lies spread by a elite group for the purpose of keeping themselves in power...

there where way more than 10 commandments BTW in the begining. more like hundreds..the church just decided to cut it down to ten...the bible is nothing more than a collection of "approved" stories written by people who heard stories from others and others...and thru time it was rewritten, parts added or cut out...

as far as im concerned the Church of Old is now the Government of today...it manipulates the people, lies to them, as steals from them for thier selfish goals and twisted lusts...

the only thing I belive in is a GOD...beyond that I seroiuosly doubt any one man knows any bit of truth beyond that...

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

I do not agree with Phaedrus and Psycho political views but they sure seem to be educated people. It will be very dissapointing to realize they cannot take a joke. People with no sense of humor SUCK!

Just further evidence that, generally speaking, liberals are unhappy people.

You do know that the Constitution and Declaration of Independence were based on Christian values?

And you also know the separation between Church and State is not mentioned anywhere in the founding documents.

Here is Liberal Myth that has taken the place of truth and reality....again.

And I also hate to break it to you, but the "National Cathedral" is just a name given to an Episcopalian Church that happens to be in Washington DC. It is not a representative place of worship for the USA. It's like the Dallas Cowboys deeming themselves "America's Team."

Liberals redefine words and titles when it is convenient and suits their needs and agenda....not because it is rooted in reality. And the other truth is that a lot of mis-informed Americans are afraid to recognize the truth because it is an admittance of being wrong and appearing "ignorant".
