    I believe in gay rights just as much as anyone else but I feel like you are saying "being a homosexual is not a choice" like you could know, but you cant know (yet).
    In what way can I not know yet?

    Don't be stupid! I am not a 'guy' and I am not a homosexual. And being a homosexual is not a choice, but being a bigot is. Think on.
    I'm not even going to start of this "homosexual is not a choice" because god knows how unusual your thoughts are. You guys need to grow some thick skin, most of this earth is against homosexuals. All you do is complain how no one accepts you and every time I say something I just get reported LOL so bye emotional peeps!

    As I'm sure you know there are those who read scriptures liberally in a nonliteral way.
    *Stoning disobedient children interpreted in a liberal non-literal way:
    Children get an overdose from marijuana

    *Man shall not lie with another man as he does with a woman interpreted in a liberal non-literal way:
    Possibility 1) Don't tell fibs on men it's okay to fib to a woman (bros before hoes)
    Possibility 2) God is against gay man-on-man but not MMF (male-male-female)

    *Donald Trump groping women, interpreted in a liberal way:

    What do you mean by rationale provided?
    The reason provided by the scripture for that belief, or the reason provided by the society that instated that belief.

    What is that religion?
    I was reading a book about Hinduism and it mentioned this. I'm not entirely sure if its executed in practise but at least in theory I think that this is what the founding doctrines intended.

    While it does, the purpose of this thread is to not insult religious people, but rather to start healthy debate regarding it.

    Oh I think the reason for it is that male and female mix would increase risk of temptation to sin (adultery) . Im not an expert though and I dont understand because we are raised in a society where there is mixing and its okay.

    What is wrong with being anti homosexual? Honestly, you guys need to grow some thick skin not everyone is going to agree with your choices lol
    Replace "homosexual" in this sentence with "black people", "women" or "Asians" and then reflect on if you think people that would be offended should just "grow some thick skin".

    To be anti black/asian/women is not the same as being against homosexuality you cretin. Homosexuality is a man made corrupt thought where you choose to enjoy effing the same gender not something that is given to you.

    society, homosexuals think its a cool trend to be gay.
    Let me give you an example, a guy for e.g is not macho/manly like the stereotype and he has some feminine qualities, he mistakes this for being interested in men and therefore effs men.

    Yeah, society thinks being homosexual is so cool!



    I have feminine qualities, I am not gay.

    Those are not really evidence?

    This is my problem with religion. It comes across as very man made. The texts are quite hateful and lean to punishment and restriction. It is very easy to judge and be hateful.

    It would be much harder to have a religion/religious text that was solely, and I mean solely, about helping other humans selflessly. That mentioned no hate or jusgement but only love and charity. That would be godly. But nope instead you get pages and pages of judging hateful script which seems a very human perspective.

    Homosexuals just expect everyone to agree with their orientation. Honestly, so what if religion is restrictive? its restrictive because its trying to protect you. God shows us what is right and wrong so what do you expect when someone does wrong? they get punished

    You need to grow up, the world is sunshine & rainbows you weirdo
