7/8/2008 5:21:51 AM
Good grief. So much fail on so many levels, it's almost Greek in its epic-ness.
7/8/2008 5:22:30 AM
ok, now never touch shellfish again. What? you wanted to follow the bible didn't you?
7/8/2008 5:25:42 AM
You and your damnable mixed fabrics are going to hell, MD.

"You can't cherry pick parts of the Bible."
*eyes light up*
When did Jesus die?
How many clean animals were on the ark?
How many times did Noah board the ark?
"Being Homosexual/Gay is not Natural, its Unnatural,"
Of course it is. Humans devised it, so it's a natural action created by creatures who evolved naturally.
"When GOD says go forth and mutliply, he means to have children"
He wasn't talking to you.
7/8/2008 5:42:39 AM
"Go forth and multiply" was directed at the non-human animals, numbnuts.
7/8/2008 6:16:28 AM
And you eat pig? Do you make fires on the Sabbath? Stone liars? Murder whole nations?
If you don't, you're not following God's laws.
7/8/2008 6:21:39 AM
"You can't cherry pick parts of the Bible." -- darn straignt!
so, wear mixed cloth lately? eat shrimp? not lift a finger on the sabboth? hope you're not pro life, 'cause the OT dosent say much in favour of that view point. Oh, just to warn you, is you ever re-seed your lawn do check that you only have one type of grass or its FAIL, go directly to hell.
7/8/2008 6:34:32 AM
"Being Homosexual/Gay is not Natural, its Unnatural"
Wait.. I'm confused.
So, what you're saying is, not only is it not natural, but it's also UN-natural??
My, the mind truly boggles at your insight.
7/8/2008 7:33:42 AM
JESUS PLEASE COME SOON!
Well, he is right that cherry-picking which parts you're going to believe is a bit silly. Still, even the fundamentalists have a way of ignoring any rules they don't want to enforce (stoning disobedient children to death, for instance)... at least us atheists stick to our guns and disregard the whole thing.

The internet has been used by women on their periods...
Get of it right now...
7/8/2008 9:02:11 AM
So in other words you mean that we should follow biblical rape law too?
7/8/2008 9:06:34 AM
*yawn* Same old, same old.
7/8/2008 9:29:54 AM
You can't cherry pick parts of the Bible. The Bible is the Law.
You have no option but to cherry pick the bible, otherwise you'll find that much of it contradicts and cancels out.
Well, unless you do what I do and just reject the whole damn thing as a worthless pile of incoherent ramblings with no connection to reality whatsoever.
7/8/2008 9:47:43 AM
God hates poly/cotton blend.
7/8/2008 9:54:28 AM
The Bible is the Law.
The Bible states its wrong...
Its against GOD's word, the Bible...
Sounds like someone's got the horn for the bible.
Into Idolatry much?
7/8/2008 10:18:35 AM
I've always thought 'go forth and multiply' was a polite way of saying 'fuck off'...

@They call me V:
Don't forget in a different part of the Bible it says that not trimming your hair is bad too. So do you cut your hair or not? You can't cheery pick the Bible so you have to have long and short hair at the same time.

MD, you're giving me a headache.
The anti-gay thing is strictly OT. If you examine the four gospels pertaining to Jesus you see that never once did he mention homosexuality. Not even once.
Now let's examine the belief that the sacrifice of Jesus cancelled out the past and made all things new. Leviticus and it's ridiculous laws were included, so we than reasonably assume that since Jesus' blood washed away previous sins and created a 'new covenant' that the 'old covenant' is now null and void. Add to this the fact that Jesus didn't think homosexuality was a big enough deal to publicly condemn it, yet did publicly say we are to love, care for and help one another, and you have your answers regarding homosexuality.
New convenant cacels out old covenant. It's okay to be gay.
Keep enjoying that big ol' bucket of fail, though. Too bad there's no critical thinking floating about in it.

It seems like atheists and fundies agree on a very important point: you can't cherry-pick parts of the Bible. If it stands, it stands on every single passage. The inverse, of course, is true as well. In other words, if even one verse or passage is erroneous, then the whole thing is called into question.
This certainly applies to the laws found in the Bible, even (and especially) those in the Old Testament. I ask you, how many of us would be alive today if our parents followed every single law laid out in the Pentateuch? Quite a few of us were rebellious or unruly children, I would imagine, and so we would have been stoned to death long ago.
Then you have those pesky fiber-blend shirts. Have you ever worn one? That's pretty bad in itself, but it's double-trouble if you've worn one while doing yard work on the Sabbath, and triple-trouble if you go out to eat at Red Lobster after church (a shame, because those garlic cheddar biscuits are pretty damn good).
If you're male, then I hope to your god that you have never touched a woman while she was on her period. Granted, it's rude to ask, but it may be in your best interest to do so (note: it still counts as touching her if she slaps you after you ask).
I think we can agree on this "no cherry-picking" thing. The difference, though, is that atheists rightly believe that the rule applies to the entirety of the Bible, whereas you people use it to single-out homosexuality, completely ignoring the myriad of other laws, not to mention the point of the rule itself.

You can't cherry pick parts of the Bible. The Bible is the Law. The Bible states its wrong to be Homosexual and any church that accepts it as being acceptable, does not believe in the word of GOD.
It also says shellfish, mixed fabrics, hair cuts, and being clean shaven is bad. However, slavery, rape, and stoning people to death is a-okay.
Being Homosexual/Gay is not Natural, its Unnatural, it should not be broadcast on TV making our children think its OK to be that way as its NOT.
If it's not natural, why are there as many homosexuals as there are left handed people? Oh, and I believe they out number the natural red-heads. God also says that disease is a punishment from him and that you should go to your temple, not a doctor, if your sick
When GOD says go forth and mutliply, he means to have children, Homosexuals/Gays can't have children together, so its without any shadow of doubt its not Natural and should be removed from all TV, Newspapers etc.
Even if I believed the bible. That statement was made when there were 8 people here. I think we've multiplied enough. 8 people, chance of the species dying out. 6 billion, I think we're pretty safe.
Its against GOD's word, the Bible which Laws are made from and therefore, unlawful.
Yeah, um, you might want to go back over your bible. I'm sure you're breaking a few rules in there as well.
7/8/2008 4:21:25 PM
and yet, shellfish...
7/8/2008 8:18:51 PM
When GOD says go forth and mutliply, he means to have children,
So not just gays, but infertile couples, too? I'm single, so I'm only multiplying on my calculator. Are we ALL sinners in your twisted litle world?
