Why the hell is gay sex immoral?

This question goes out to all the people who actually believe that gay sex is immoral. I am formally challenging that belief. If any of you honestly believe that gay sex is immoral, give your reasons here. I reserve the right to challenge the validity of those reasons.

Attendance by Bap33 is mandatory. By the way, that avatar is pretty gay for someone who's homophobic.

Just saying...

(remembering that the germ theory of disease was not understood during Biblical times),

lol .. go read Leviticus again, really close, and see what they are told to do when there is a sickness or a skin disorder to the clothes, bedding, and the bed. Remember a few other things about that silly old book of stories ... it got the ordering of creation correct, including life on this planet. And, oddly enough, did so before all the smart people were born and moved to Frisco.

Bottom line, Stalin's atrocities had nothing to do with atheism

I wonder if this is opinion. Dan, would you mind?

He was an agnostic and declared it several times. he was very critical of atheism.

Fair enough, agnostic. He was very critical of religion, for example this: "For me the Jewish religion like all other religions is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions. And the Jewish people to whom I gladly belong and with whose mentality I have a deep affinity have no different quality for me than all other people."

Actually it is a well-known abuse of his words, drastically exaggerated beyond anything that he could recognize as his own, to enlist his name for a cause he did not support personally.

Just read what this guy writes. He uses a textual analysis to claim these were not Einsteins words. At the same time he says it could mean lots of different things.
The whole argument sounds just like: "First I never took this pot from you, second, when I took it already had a crack in it, and third, I returned it intact."
He completely ignores the fact that Einstein himself never denied this statement, which IMO means that even if the words were not exact the meaning was correct.

Well ... the details are not there for many things, like the gravity and energy that has made every atom, ever, keep "alive" with it's moving parts, all going light speed, missing each other, since day one. The Bible in not too into that stuff. lol

The ice, may be part of that "water were seperated from the waters" stuff, and the creation of the firmement, or some such thing. But, before you get all crazy, please make sure you do understand that all of the anti-God, super smart science guys say the fresh water on earth came from space. I know, huh!! go check and see.

This issue is not an arguing point for me. I really enjoy ancient stuff. Like, you know, pyramids, Mayans, Nazca lines, stuff like that.

To the contrary, he writes that Einstein denied it and called it "drastically exaggerated beyond anything that he could recognize as his own." (The quote being from the author's translation of Einstein's denial.)

RE: Albert E. Smart enough to know somthing was there, and know he didn't know what it was, and know it is bigger than all mankind. And he was never, ever, stupid enough to make a case against creation due to the absolute order, that looks just like disorder to the unknowing, that he found all over the universe. Dude was very smart, and knew he did not have the God answer. And, as you know, the smart guys before him, you know Plato and Socrates, said the first step is knowing what you do not know.

The whole post was about Dan's "Religion kills in mass."

I brought Einsteins veiws as an example of an intelectually honest man, who can see that there are other forces, especially non-religious forces that really kill "in mass" and often religous ones are the only ones that oppose them.

The fact that Einstein was against any organized religion and not a theist makes this even more valuable. Would he been an atheist his statement would be even more valuable, only he was not.

cmon curious, answer this one. Thanks.

remeber, since you were not the one standing there listening to Albert, you will have to have FAITH that he really said what you have been told. So, what happens when he says, "oh ya, God is a for sure deal!"???

Bap, I'm not interested in speculating about things people didn't say, nor your bizarre theology of a giant ice dome in the sky. You want everybody who doesn't conform to your absurd beliefs to be hanged. Therefore you have no respect for other people, and there is no reason why anyone should respect you enough to answer your questions. I have learned from both Dan and Michael, but you are for entertainment value only.

nope, what you wrote is untrue and pulled from your behind. What I want is for murderers, rapists, gangsters, and anyone else who now is placed on display in a human zoo for a long sentence/life, to not be tortured with confinement (that does no work to fix them or repay the debt), instead I want a conviction, an appeal, and a hanging (the green way), and each step should be modeled like the Tim McVey Express.

Look, curious, I can give you a lot of reasons why this guys arguments are laughable. But for me just this: "And fourth, at least to another scientist like me..." is more than enough. LOL, the message of this guy is: "Albert Einstein and another scientist".

And finally he refers to an unpublished (sic) letter cited by (no indication he got a copy of this letter) Barbara Wolff at the Einstein Archives in Jerusalem (no explanation of the Wolffs position there). The letter was written in 1947, while it presumably refers to casual oral statements from the 30th. And after all it apparently states: "hardly any German intellectuals except a few churchmen were supporting individual rights and intellectual freedom"

So, what we have here is a very unreliable source working for an institution with clear anti-church ideology -- the Hebrew University in Jerusalem (believe me I've studied there), which gives a watered down version of the published statement.

If you know all the Biblical arguments that repeated states that no man that has sex with another one can enter the kingdom of God, and you've rejected it because you dont believe in God, or the Bible, or think that people that do are crazy, theres nothing further that can be done to help you understand.
The only thing that remains for you is Heb 10:27...But a certain fearful expectation of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

If you look at the statistics, a majority of people with HIV are women and children. The women tend to get it from their cheating husbands, and most of the children were born with it. If there is overlap between Biblical rules and disease (remembering that the germ theory of disease was not understood during Biblical times), then disease might be one reason for the repeated prohibitions against adultery.

Well, the Biblical meaning of adultery was a very clear one, it was a trespassing of a man's right over his wife. Cheating (what a stupid word) with another not maried women, for example with a prostitute was not considered adultery, neither is it considered such today in Orthodox Judaism. Even today Orthodox Jewish marriage is a one sided consecration of a mans usage of a woman.

The New Testament does condemn promiscuety using words like fornication but always mentions these two things separately.

At any rate Biblical rules would hardly limit the transmission of HIV the way you mention it.

To sum up Bap's various posts, i.e. the Gospel according to Bap:
1) liberals and gay people are mentally defective;
2) mentally defective people cannot consent to sex, so sex with any of them is rape;
3) rapists (and all other threats to society) should be hanged. BTW, abortion is also murder, so anyone involved should be hanged.
Therefore, according to Bap, liberals and gays should all be hanged, along with anyone involved in abortion, and any other threats to society. BTW, "liberals" seems to mean "anyone Bap disagrees with," and spreading dangerous ideas might also be a threat to society, so basically everyone except Bap ends up hanged.

Enjoy!

I agree they aren't nearly as effective as evidence-based measures, for example condoms. That merely suggests the Biblical rules have become obsolete, at least with regard to preventing the spread of disease. They are also obsolete with regard to their endorsement of slavery and religious murder. You mentioned earlier the drownings at Nantes, but you omit the slaughter of thousands in Exodus for forgetting the sabbath, and what about worshiping the golden calf? I forget the exact numbers but IIRC they add up to more than Nantes, and besides the Terror was about counter-revolutionaries not religion per se; most on all sides were Catholic.

And after all it apparently states: "hardly any German intellectuals except a few churchmen were supporting individual rights and intellectual freedom"

That is not an endorsement of religion and certainly not of the Catholic church. It is more likely a reference to pastors like Martin Niemöller, who said:

"First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

"Then they came for the socialists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for me,
and there was no one left to speak for me."

This is often extended to include references to other target groups, e.g. Jews, homosexuals, etc. The courage of a few low-level pastors, what in the Catholic tradition might be called "fighting priests" who speak truth to power (see Fr. Bernard Lynch), stands in stark contrast to the Catholic church's complicity in the Holocaust.

liberals and gay people are mentally defective;

1) liberalism is a mental disorder that seems to be the RESULT of drug use and/or a fixation on deviant sex.
2) "gay people" do not exist. Perverts and those suffering from gland issues do exist. Both of these are curable birth defects.

curious2 says

2) mentally defective people cannot consent to sex, so sex with any of them is rape;

that is correct, moral, and the law. Do you disagree??

curious2 says

3) rapists should be hanged. BTW, abortion is also murder, so anyone involved should be hanged.

1) rapists should be hanged. abortion is murder. correct, correct.
2) "anyone involved" is open ended. The taxi driver was the one who drove the girl .... the Ford Mo Co built the car .... Ike built the road .... I would limit the charge of murder to anyone engaged in the act of abortion for wage or ransom. The mother will be harmed for life, no need to heap punishment.

...in fact I have, including the parts that prohibit pork and shellfish and fowl ("abomination"), and handling pigskin (football), and wearing clothing of mixed fiber, and Jews dining with Gentiles. The list of abominations is quite long, and the reason for your fixation on one in particular is obvious to everyone but you.

Not really, mainly because of some stupid Catholic rules that completely separate lots of people from the Church.

In regards to the Biblical accounts I don't think I need to remind you that Old Testament was compiled much later from muliple sources, mainly from various Liturgical cycles originated in different cities in Canaan.

As you surely know even when they preserve some historic stories the numbers are wildly exaggerated in such chronicles.

For example Greek chronicles claim Xerxes brought in a force of three millions. Modern estimates talk about like 60,000 combatants, which even counting also all kind off additional logistics and support people means that they exaggerated it at least 20 times.
