BS. I've read enough of your and trumanmutt's posts to know that you're a friend of the homosexual agenda and are downplaying the threat it poses to our nation.
But many of the comments on this thread have been about homosexuals, not proud unrepentant homosexuals.
Any person that publically announces the CHOSEN behavior known as homosexuality without saying that he or she is struggling with the sin and wants to repent and accept Christ's forgiveness, is a "proud homosexual". You don't see too many of those stories out there these days do you Sherman?
Anywho, there are a good many proud unrepentant fornicators and adulterers out there, heterosexual variety. Admittedly they dont usually march in the streets, but thats because their sins have become so completely accepted by society.
I am not denying that we are a morally decaying society, brought on by numerous "proud sins". But show me their "agenda" and where they've invaded valuable American institutions such as marriage, the traditional family (through adoption), the military, education, religion, and youth mentor groups, trying to get their sin to become "mainstream", and I'll move the threat level that those particular sins pose to our society up a notch.
Well, just off the top of my head.
Widespread acceptance of adultery and the resultant divorce has done a great deal more damage to the institution of the family than any that could possibly result from acceptance of "gay marriage."
Fornication is so accepted as a way of life entire long-running successful TV programs are built around it and the resultant comic possibilities. I'm sure I don't have to name names. The massive increase in illegitimacy and family breakdown is not unconnected.
Few religious groups even make a serious attempt anymore to denounce divorce and fornication as serious sins.
Drunkenness has become a "disease," not a sin.
Reviling has become a sport, not a sin. Particularly popular on the interwebs, where one can revile others anonymously.
My point is not the homosexuality is not a serious sin. It is that the Bible essentially says: Adultery, fornication and homosexuality are serious sexual sins.
Yet you come all unglued about one of the sins listed while thinking it right and proper to ignore the others. There is nothing in the Bible that assigns greater sinfulness to one than the others.
