OMFG, I finally found it! The part of the bible which mentions homos! ^.^

I was hangin' out at Jazz & Java, like usually, and my friend Big Bird has this book called The Book Of Bible Answers, or something like that. Well, because it's my friends, we look up the stuff on gays. It tells where to find the scripture on gays. Romans 1:26-27.

Nothing about homosexuality being wrong! It says God created homosexuality to punish those who commited the sin of lust!

Romans 1

For this cause God
gave them up unto vile
affections: for even their
women did change their
natural use into that
which is against nature:
27 And likewise also
the men, leaving the nat-
ural use of the woman,
burned in their lust one
toward another: men
with men working that
which is unseemly, and
receiving in themselves
that recompence of their
error which was meet.

Take that, Jesus Freaks!

*sigh* But you know that whichever way they say it, people will interpret it however they want. (And it doesn't help that the whole damn bible is written in such an old-poetic style. I can hardly understand any of it.)
Still, it's all kinda sad. Creating homosexuality to punish people? What, like to make them sad because.... they're abnormal? Because they couldn't have kids? And if it's to punish peole who lust, then why does it seem like some seople are born gay? I mean, if they haven't been alive to sin, why should tehy be punished? *considers*
Ah, I've never cared much for religion, probably because I can't wrap my brain around it. ^^; *shrugs*

I can only understand some of it, like Shakespeare. It's open to interpretation. We will never understand exactly what the authors meant, unless they tell us. And seeing as they're dead...

And punishing people who haven't been born is a good way to argue reincarnation, though they would say it's original sin. Punish us for what a fictional Eve did? I don't think that makes any sense logically.

(And that brings up another question, or several as the case may be. Lucifer started the war because he felt it wasn't fair for humans to have souls and angels not to, but he was said to lure Eve to the forbidden fruit, and since Eve and Adam were the first of the humans... Which came first? Unless Lucifer is upset that God decided to give souls to his favorites... And weren't angels fashioned after humans? Sorry for the tangent.)

I don't care for this religion because there are too many holes in it. I'll stick to my pagan gods. They admit they are sometimes wrong, admit that they make mistakes. And hey, they're punished too!

If only all religions would admit to their mistakes, then maybe some people wouldn't be such horribly self-righteous hypocrites.

I refuse to be born with an original sin.
Who said that again? Ayn Rand, maybe? *shrugs*

I refuse to let such totalitarianistic ideals rule my life. I believe in just about anything. Hell, I believed that T-bag wanted to settle down to a nice family just like he said and mom had to go and shoot that idea in the foot. But just because I believe something doesn't mean it has any hold on me.
I feel so out of place when my friends will start singing religious songs, or say prayer at dinner. I just sit there, and wonder how they can profess so much of their life to something that hasn't done a damn thing for them but condemn.
I'm hardly an atheist, I just don't see what all this fuss is about.
mushy_squishy at 2006-04-21 10:16 (UTC) (Link)
That's pretty much my stance as well. Well, more or less. I'm not entirely sure what exactly I believe. Is there a god, is there not? I doubt I'll ever know until I die- it's impossible to, isn't it? I like to keep my mind open to any ideas. But most religions aren't at all open-minded.
I know what you mean about your friends. It used to happen to me pretty often, until all my friends realized it made me uncomfortable. But I was driving with my boyfriend and his mother last night and she was listening to religious music. She doesn't know how I feel about religion, but I'm afraid to tell her because she's so devoted to it...

I live in what I have labeled Seventh Day Adventist land, so religious nuts are impossible too avoid, unfortunately. And I have like, five Mormon friends. Not to mention the Baptist/Catholic...
Strangely enough, the only thing that bothers me is that when they start those 'love jesus' songs I don't know the words and can't sing along.

*is so glad she moved out of Seventh Day Adventist land* Not that I really had any choice, the apartment was pretty much covered in mold, only two of the six lights worked, and every faucet, and the roof (in about nine places), leaked. But I really didn't have much of a problem avoiding the religious nuts, just don't leave the house on Saturdays.

And I have like, five Mormon friends. Not to mention the Baptist/Catholic...
And a pagan one!

Do the lyrics really mean anything to you? At least the ones used in choir?

Just notes on a page...

hm. I think there's some sort of Catholic rulebook that says that homosexuality is only bad if acted upon... which doesn't really make sense, but then, I'm not Catholic, so I can't even be sure if that much is true. The way I see it, homosexuality was pretty damn well accepted in more ancient times, and I always hear how much society has advanced... so why is it only NOW that the condemnations start rolling? Why when everyone's so high on the individual's rights, when such relationships will only HELP all the damned overpopulation we've got?
*sigh* I don't think I'll ever understand people.

Ever notice that homosexuality is more prominent now then it used to be?

Personally I feel that this is a genetic defense written into the human race. We're overpopulating, so we stop procreation. Homosexuality is a good way to do that. Also, infertility is on the rise. As our sexually transmitted diseases.

In fact, all diseases are mutating and becoming more deadly. The planet, and probably any higher being you answer to, is trying to decrease the population. See, if we just had a nice world war or widespread epidemic we wouldn't have this problem.

And I agree, I don't understand people either. Muchless their religious beliefs.

Hmm. That's certainly an interesting idea. A genetic defense? Perhaps so. Either way, I see it as a lucky thing. I'm not too fond of the thought of overpopulation, myself. (Although I'm not hoping for a war either...)

Even so, I still think we humans are going to end up destorying the world and ourselves, sooner or later. More than likely, sooner.
lamia_cobriana at 2006-04-28 22:32 (UTC) (Link)
Only reason I'm not hoping for a war is because I don't want to join the army. Though with my eyesight and lack of hand/eye coordination I'm safe. And then there's the mental issues I have.

I'd go with the sooner as well. It's inevitable. The way humans have risen to the top of the food chain so quickly, and have so completely dominated the Earth, there's no way we won't end up destroying the world and ourselves. Makes me kinda glad we haven't found another planet that's habitable and close enough to live on. I don't want to think of humanity continuing it's current cycle on another planet.

*adds another to the list of ways to poke holes in the Bible and Christianity (including all the God based religions)*

Homosexuality to punish people from lusting? But isn't lust a way to ensure procreation? And homosexuality stops procreation?

Damn but if this religion (and all associated ones) made sense, I wouldn't have a problem with it.
