...and the chief priest of the Greek Orthodox church appeared. He deemed the entire event a complete and utter offence, as well as disgusting. He also said that he shouldn't be involved in this crime against humanity's existence. Finally, he scheduled a gathering of Christian organizations, as well as staying up through the night to protest. Okay, so everyone gets the point, he doesn't like homosexuals. It goes against his faith. So why did he even go there if he "didn't want to get involved"? There's a proverb that goes like this: The devil finds work for idle hands.

The Brick Testament

The bible must have been able to predict the future! How else could they know that when it was written a man could not possible lay with a man as he could with a woman. But these days you can buy a new penis or vagina at every street corner!

On a more serious note: it depends on how you interpreted your holy book, you could just aswell respect or tolerate homo and bisexuality. If one wishes to protest

Oh and gay pride's are a bit silly, too extrovert for your avarage hetero/bi/homo, but whatever floats your boat aye? :)

I agree. I do not support Gay Pride stuff. Homosexuals think they're a minority, so they take pride in their being different. If heterosexual people thought they were a minority, they'd have Straight Pride stuff. I do not support the church condemning them publicly either though. Let them have their moments if they want. What one does in their own [insert preferred place of intercourse here] is no business of mine, and what I do in my own [insert preferred place of intercourse here] is not anybody's business. I'm not saying homosexuals, heterosexuals, bisexuals, genderfluids, whatever, should hide and not answer if they are asked. All I'm saying is that there shouldn't be the need to ask somebody what they like to have sex with. I only announce my sexual orientation to new friends because most people haven't reached that point of "not giving a damn" yet, and I have been proven wrong every time, because all my friends are great people and they really don't give a damn. All this posturing on both sides is incredibly bothersome....

Gay pride is not about being different - it is about standing up to prejudice. It's essentially "I don't give a fuck what you think about me". And yes, any minority who is actively being oppressed around the globe should do the same thing. Homosexuals are a minority, they don't "think" they are.

As one of this sites few Christians I could be throwing out all manner of scripture against the gays.

But as my woman is a non-Christian and I go against the "Do not yoke with non-believers" passages myself, I shall sit in silence!

Mmm, it's some Christians. To be fair main stream Christianity gives a lot of Christians a bad name. I doubt you'd find too much of that sort of thing in The Religious Society of Friends for instance.

-sighs-

Christianity is one of those weird things where so much of it's open to interpretation and preference ordering.

[INDENT] "Whatsoever you loose on earth, I shall loose in heaven."

"Judge not lest ye be judged, for in what manner you judge so too shall you be judged."

"If your eye offends you, pluck it out."

"Remove the plank from your own eye before removing the mite from your brother's."

"There is not one without sin."

"A voice said cry, and he said what shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field."

"Love your neighbour as you do yourself." [/INDENT] Or heck, just the meta point: That Jesus came to put an end to the old testament covenant by making a new one. In many ways the Old Testament simply is not meant to be the Christians' book.

Speaking on the first Covenant, in Hebrews, it was said:

[INDENT]"And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away."[/INDENT]

My emphasis.

If anything the OT seems closer to me to the Torat Moshe; the laws of Moses, which ought to have a more central role in Judaism than Christianity.

--- [SIZE="1"] I do not have time to look up the exact references for the scripture given above, as such it is - with the exception of Hebrews - given from memory.[/SIZE]
