[From "The False Premise: “Love is Love”"]

The use of the Bible to support the Alphabet People’s propaganda is even more tiresome. They glean passages from the NIV Bible and then wonder why some consider the argument false. The use of this propaganda has led to lesbian women presiding over the pulpit. This is unacceptable for many reasons, but the narrative and argument are built on a false premise

The Alphabet Peoples of the world have fundamentally distorted the relationship of love and God. I have heard the argument many times of, “How can you deny that these two individuals love one another? Would you deny them love?” This is usually followed up with the Bible verse, “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” (1 John 4:8 KJV). I will usually respond with something along the lines of adultery can be considered “love” under the same rules, but it is still a sin
I will admit that many of the statements regarding love and God in the Bible would confound me as a child[…]Even in my teens and early adulthood this bothered me. I could not understand how God created the flood and also the concept of love. When I became a father, I began to understand this concept on a much different level. As a father, it is my duty to correct my children, and this came from a place of love
The next two statements are the same passage in the Bible, but one is from the New International Version and the other from the King James Version[…][1 Cor. 13:4-5]

With six different words combined into one word, it is obvious that it can be misunderstood[…]Majority of the arguments from the Alphabet People equates love to a simple, ambiguous feeling
Do not fall for this trickery, the false interpretation of the Bible is why no one should feel bad for not accepting their false “unions.” They should feel shame for their sin[…]This is not discrimination or bigotry. These are simple facts
