Galatea wrote:Not every interpretation of the bible is correct, Bobo. I admire your ability to stand by your faith, but I also believe that a good Christian (or Jew, or Wiccan or whatever) has the ability to question certain aspects of their religion. Especially those (like doctrines of intolerance) that go against the grain of their faith. Just food for thought.

Christianity is based on the new testament, jesus saw the errors and wanted to change it so he preached about being kind and loving. If jesus says specifically " homosexuals are evil and sinful, kill them etc..." then use it, don't use your religion as an excuse to persecute people of different lifestyles.The old testament also said that the disabled are sinful, do you persecute them?stop picking and choosing the scriptures, there is no middle ground. your either a christian or your not.
