If I saw the Holy Spirit "come upon" a gay person, I would expect that gay person to no longer be gay. So that would tell me that God does have a problem with it.

You have a problem with gay people, so you expect God to have a problem with them too?

"If I saw the Holy Spirit "come upon" a gay person, I would expect that gay person to no longer be gay."
Can innuendo ever be more blatant than this and still not be obvious to the person writing it?

Sorry to burst your hate bubble. I was raised as a Southern Church of God follower. At the time, I experienced the Holy Spirit - all the while dealing with my homosexuality.
It was the Church's stance on being gay that drove me away - not God. I came to know that "God doesn't make junk". SO if God was OK with me, it was the CHurch that was srewed up.

1. You know you've created god in your image when he hates the same people you do.
2. Kind of reaffirms that your god doesn't exist, doesn't it?
6/9/2012 3:35:43 AM
No. It tells me that you have a problem with it, and that you think you're God.

methinks the closet should protest a bit. that, or the closet case doth protest too much

And again, a fundie proving that we create our gods in our own image.

Wait, so suddenly God has to follow *your* expectations?
What you just said is that God must have a problem with something because *you* expect him to. I'm going to make a wild assumption here and guess that this is because you have a problem with it.
Isn't it strange when God seems to hate everything you hate and love everything that you do? God forbid a situation comes up when God condones something you don't, or you happen to do something God doesn't like.
But that's impossible, isn't it? After all, something you've warped to your own perception can't disagree with you.

If you saw the Holy Spirit 'come upon' a gay person, you'd simply deny it and cry Leviticus 18:22 and Romans 1:24 all the way home. Let's get real.

Oh My Dog!
Yet you have never seen such a thing, shouldn't that tell you something?

So that tells me you're a simple-minded heteronormativist.

Wuxtry. American fundie does not understand circular reasoning to be a fallacy. Wuxtry.

Dude, you can believe anything you want, but when you spout stuff like this with only your own opinion as evidence, you have to remember that it's just, well... YOU.
Seriously, you can't make broad, sweeping statements like that with nothing behind them. Well, you can, but so can I. Check it:
If I saw the Holy Spirit "come upon" a gay person, I would expect that the two of them would share a high five of mutual respect and a box of Heaven donuts. So that would tell me that God doesn't have a problem with it, and also loves donuts.
See what I did there? And it has precisely the same merits are the statement above, so by your own logic, it's TRUE! RAINBOW POWER! :D

How on earth did you get from
God does have
The first sentence is about what you imagine would happen, in a hypothetical. The second generalises that to what God thinks, in real life, right now. The only possible explanation is that you think your idiot expectations are somehow binding on God. They're not.

A christian told me that he thought God loves homosexuals more than others, because they have to endure all this suffering.
Even as an atheist, I like this thinking.
Joe is a presumptive fool.

According to Orthodox Jews, God has a problem with eating shrimp. According to Muslims, he has a problem with your not facing Mecca when you talk to him. According the Roman Catholics, you have to eat a magic wafer now and then. It's funny how god always seems to agree with whatever stuff we humans make up.

If I saw the Holy Spirit "come upon" a gay person....
...I'd call the police and hopefully they'll be charged with indecent exposure

No True Scotsman FTW!!

I don't know about your holy spirit. I have, however, seen two men pledge to love, abide and protect each other for life in a legally recognized marriage ceremony. No one who watched this event could deny the sincerity of their pledge. That was enough to convince me that no one, mundane or celestial, has the right to deny them their happiness.
You should have been there Joe. It might have given even you something to think about.
6/9/2012 9:10:56 AM
Let me know when you see the holy spirit. Even better, get a picture.
6/9/2012 9:12:27 AM
It's good that your prejudices are consistent.
6/9/2012 9:23:24 AM
What does your pathetic ego projection for an imaginary friend have to do with anything, Joe? Christian hubris never ceases to amuse.
