It's okay to believe in God and be Gay,Lesbian or straight.It's all about how you live your life.I feel if you have a real love in your life.That one true person that you have given your all to.I feel that God does not look down on true Love.Now I am far from being perfect.And I have done some dumb things in my life.But,I feel that God loves all of us.All we have to do is let him in.

Dearest Sister Aj,
I have not written here for a long time, for I have written here, on this and many other "Discussions", to the point where I became sick, please be patient as I may explain this to you.
My heart and soul, longs to touch, kiss and hug every one of you, to let you know that which is already written in the Scriptures, that "God is love" 1) "1 John 4:8
New International Version (NIV)
8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 2"Nothing can separate us from God"
Romans 8:38-39
New International Version (NIV)
38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
3)"We are made in the image of God, I do not mean our bodies but Our souls, and souls, like love, has no "gender".
Galatians 3:28

Please understand that the intent of this article is NOT to condemn homosexuals; but rather, to take a Biblical stand against the Homosexual Agenda. We ought not be gay-bashers; but we should preach the truth about the sin of homosexuality. The Bible condemns all humanity as guilty, dirty, rotten, hell-deserving sinners (Romans 3:10-23; 6:23). Thankfully, Jesus came to SAVE SINNERS! Serial killers, government tyrants, academic liberals, Catholic priests, politicians, Mormon Church higher-ups, Jewish rabbis, environmental extremists, communists, religious heretics, mass murderers, occultists, spies, and the Illuminati share something hideous and grotesque in common. Almost all are homo-sexual. Worse, most of the sick-minded men who comprise these demented social groups are not only homosexual, they practice the most kinky and perverted forms of sexual licentiousness-pedophilia, satanic bondage, physical torture, bisexuality, transvestitism, and even bestiality. If you doubt this, I invite you to consider the wicked lives of some of these moral degenerates—men like Lenin, Mussolini, Hitler, Marx, Jim Jones, Alfred Kinsey, Michael Jackson, Jacques DeMolay, Bill Clinton, Jim Bakker, Jimmy Swaggart, Mick Jagger, Aleister Crowley, Hubert Humphrey, Paul Tsongas, Martin Luther King, Mario Cuomo, Rudy Giuliani, Jeffrey Dahmer, Richard Speck, and John Wayne Gacy. Homosexuality is a disgusting sin, listed in the Bible next to bestiality (sex with animals, Leviticus 18:22-23). The Bible says in Leviticus 18:25 that God vomiteth homosexuals out of the land. http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Evils%20in%20America/Sodomy/homosexuality_is_a_sin.htm

Of course you are correct AJ. God loves all His/Her creations. It is agape love ... more powerful than any other. If I can forgive my kids for their actions, surely this love is strong enough to forgive his own creation, IF there is even a need for such forgiveness.

Remember, Jesus never said a word about homosexuality.. not one word. What was spoken was by man. Paul was not divine, nor the others who made pronouncements against us. It all comes from the old Law which Jesus fulfilled on the cross.

Those who disagree are allowed to do so, because we pray for the salvation of their souls as well as our brothers and sisters. I just have a feeling there will be a lot of surprised people when they get to their destination after they leave this life. They are going to find we are all welcomed into the arms of our Lord.

Just think, Phelps spending eternity with a bunch of gays... I'm laughing just picturing it in my mind.... LOL

Well said Harrison.
