Milking the Catz
Yes, two people who love each other and aren't remotely hurting anyone that just so HAPPEN to be of the same sex are clearly the same as drunks, murderers, and thieves.
Please, do yourself a favor and FOADIAF.

And yet if I did the same thing regarding you Christians and Christianity, I would promptly be called a bigot.
7/8/2008 11:22:42 AM
Then I only call you a dirty christ-puncher out of love.
7/8/2008 11:25:41 AM
With friends like these...
7/8/2008 11:55:29 AM
Same ol' shit...

Maybe before you, Ininja2000, love your neighbor, you should ask him/her, if he/she wants to be loved by you and how.
7/8/2008 12:29:13 PM
the problem is you presume to decide what is or is not a sin, and inflict this definition on everyone including those of us who don't belive in sin because we don't believe in god.
7/8/2008 12:31:12 PM
So if someone, say, "loved the idiots, but hated the idiocy" and tried to explain that you are wasting your life on a bunch of puerile myths? Or decided that praying and believing in gods was idiotic and should be outlawed for your own good? Or said that as a "stupid theist" you shouldn't be allowed to marry or adopt children in case your ignorance "rubbed off" on them? You'd be all right with that?

JESUS PLEASE COME SOON!
I hate when they try to mask their bigotry by calling it "loving concern".
7/8/2008 2:19:59 PM
I wish the Romans had imported more lions.
7/8/2008 2:28:13 PM
At the same time, whenever we express reasoned viewpoints, it's conclusive evidence that we hate Christians.
7/8/2008 2:40:27 PM
Hate the sin; love the sinner. Right. There's nothing condescending in that at all.
Doncha just love that thinly veiled air of superiority?
7/8/2008 4:01:17 PM
Yep, you don't hate the sinners, just everything about them.
7/8/2008 4:56:35 PM
I love starting the rumour that one of the people listed in their Church newsletter is secretly gay and then watching the Christian love.
7/8/2008 5:05:11 PM
A guy down south (I'm wanting to say it was in Alabama, but I don't remember for sure) got tortured and killed by his roommate and the roommate's friend after his "deprogramming" didn't work and he was still gay. They tied him to a chair, burned him, cut him... When the authorities found him, he was almost completely beheaded. They did this because they wanted him to change, and wouldn't/couldn't understand that he was just fine as he was. And now he's dead - the people who claimed to love him murdered him in horrible, painful ways.
That speaks more about your type of 'love' than that "aren't we awesome?" bullshit you're spouting. And that type of 'love' sure looks more like hate to me.
7/8/2008 5:26:12 PM
...and we will insist on burning them at the stake if we get our way unless they repent their EVIL EVIL ways. That is how much we love them.
And Ininja2000, may I remind you, according to your religion, we are ALL sinners. So why don't you focus on yourself there first, champ.
7/8/2008 5:32:25 PM
That's sorta like what Gandhi said about liking Christ but hating Christians.
7/8/2008 5:48:57 PM
O RLY? Try this comparison on for size:
"No, I do not hate left-handed people, and neither do most other Christians. In fact, we love left-handers, and we wouldn't speak out against left-handedness if we didn't. Because if we truly hated them, we wouldn't care what they did with their lives and wouldn't care if they were on a path leading to hell. See, we don't hate them, if we hated them we'd want to harm them, but we love them and want to help them. The same goes for any other type of sinner (drunkard, murderer, thief, etc.). We hate the sin, but we love the sinners."
THAT is how stupid this view of "love the sinner, hate the sin" is when you apply it to homosexuality as an arbitrarily despised "sin."
7/8/2008 6:08:12 PM
Allegory for Jesus
Yeah...sure you love sinners. Sure you do...
7/8/2008 6:10:57 PM
Sounds like an "I'm not a homophobe but..." argument to me. I don't need your brand of bigotry posing as "help," poptart, I'm just fine the way I am.
7/8/2008 6:47:43 PM
Erm... If that's true, could you hate me instead? I'd really rather be left alone. That sounds awesome.
7/8/2008 7:03:53 PM
"No, I do not hate gays,"
I got five bucks that he does by the end of the quote!
"We hate the sin, but we love the sinners."
So you hate the gay part. Gimme my five bucks, you hate gay people.
7/8/2008 7:50:41 PM
Oh yes, let's just forget the occasional homicide and the suicides from homosexual children born into christian households - that's some real traditional christian love eh?
7/8/2008 8:06:59 PM
Uh, that path to hell? It goes nowhere.
7/8/2008 9:16:55 PM
LOL n00b epic fail.
