Carrie Underwood Supports Gay Marriage, Says God Probably Does Too

carrie underwood

When a celebrity comes out in support (or against) gay marriage it really isn’t news. But since Carrie Underwood has a good ol’ Christian country girl image, as well as a strong conservative fan base, her endorsement of gay marriage has a lot of people talking.

Underwood said:

“As a married person myself, I don’t know what it’s like to be told I can’t marry somebody I love, and want to marry… I can’t imagine how that must feel. I definitely think we should all have the right to love, and love publicly, the people that we want to love.”

E! Online reports that Underwood grew up in a Baptist Church but now belongs to a non-denominational church with her husband Mike Fisher. Underwood told The Independent that her views on gay marriage stem from her religious beliefs.

Underwood said:

“Our church is gay friendly…. Above all, God wanted us to love others. It’s not about setting rules, or [saying] ‘everyone has to be like me’. No. We’re all different. That’s what makes us special. We have to love each other and get on with each other. It’s not up to me to judge anybody.”

A spokesman for Equality California said that Underwood’s stance may irk some of her evangelical fans, but said that her younger fans probably welcomed the singer’s support of gay marriage.

The spokesman said:

“If you look at younger evangelicals, they are hugely out of step with their parents on this issue. They remain committed to their faith, but don’t see gay rights being in conflict with Christian values. So while her comments are great news, they aren’t necessarily a huge surprise.”

What do you think of Carrie Underwood? Do you think she’ll influence some of her fans to support gay marriage?

    1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (NIV): "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters, nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God." If you were a true christian you would know this! just saying

  2. Lisa Jo Larry Kendrick

    sorry, but just cause you are blessed with a talent doesn't mean others can not think for them selves. I have a brain to make my own decissions not some singer or actor that thinks there opinion matters more than mine.

  3. Herlinda Galindo

    Life has evolved since the bible was written…. Just like we don't stone people to death…… Love is for everyone and GOD is LOVE…… Stop hating and start letting others be happy too.

  4. Katie Pinkston

    All I can say is Read your King James edition. And Baptist or evangelical don't mean spit if you do not obey God's laws. And that is God's law-don't mean you have to judge or hate-just discern what's right by God.

  5. Sabrina Brie Hill

    So is wearing makeup, or even "lusting after someone else momentarily in your heart". Looks like you think that we should re-instate STONING ANYONE caught in an adulterous relationship. or would just dragging them into a football stadium to be publicly shot in the back of the head like the TALIBAN do OK with you.

  6. Jessica Padilla

    You people need to wake up! Just because some book says it shouldn't happen, doesn't mean it's true. I mean really, if every book written was true, would you really want to see gay, sparkling vampires all over the place?

  7. Sabrina Brie Hill

    HEY BIBLE THUMPERS, I was BORN A HERMAPHRODITE. If you believe that before I was born, GOD "KNEW ME" than HE formed me with a WHOLE LOT of "parts" that are a mix of gender specific parts for BOTH sexes. So now you say that GOD made me in the womb, just so that HE could destroy me in the fires of Hell? CONGRATULATIONS, you just made MY GOD out to be a BIGGER DEVIL than the Devil himself.

  8. Brianne Sorendo

    You wanna know what else is sinful? A man not having a full beard. Having sex with a woman on her period. Having tattoos. Lusting. The cardinal sins are sins, too. Wearing clothes made of 2 different fabric.

    Get over yourself, really. Your savior told you to love and to help one another. He never told you to judge, lest you be judged.

  9. Alesha Schnotala

    I'm all for gay marriage, I don't care what people think of me. I'm not here to be like everyone else, or to make everyone happy.

  10. David Croyle

    God does not hate gays… but God does hate the gay action. God made Adam and Eve… NOT Adam and Adam or Eve and Eve. God said go and be fruitful, replenish the Earth. I am sorry that our churches now do not teach the Word of God as it should be taught.

  11. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    The same book that says that says alot of other crazy things that I bet you do not agree with/live by. Such as Leviticus 19:33 When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. So I hope that you are not anti-immigration! Or Leviticus 19:28 You shall not make any cuts on your body for the dead or tattoo yourselves: I am the Lord. So I hope you tell any friend or family member that has a tattoo that he has created an abomination. And I see from your photo that you have pierced ears… And I hope you never wear any cotton blend clothing b/c you are not supposed to mix two types of fabric.

  12. Diane Lynne Perkins Hammond

    Well as Ms. Underwood said – Our church is gay friendly too – but what she isn't getting is that -if you read your Bible correctly gay marriage is a sin – we love the sinner but don't condone the sin. Back into the word is what we need to do……..we love people because God loves them – we just need to tell them that sin is just that sin and we can't get to Heaven with that sin in our lives……I definitely disagree with what Ms. Underwood is saying.

  13. Charles Miller

    No Jessica, Carrie Underwood needs to wake up. I get the impression that Carrie Underwood's Bible is dusty. The devil is not afraid of a believer who has a Bible that has dust on it. The person who has a Bible that is falling apart has a life that is not. The reason that some people are down on the Bible is because they are not up on the Bible. When you really know what's in it, it is the best thing in the world to read. It is not just "some book." Other books are given for information, the Bible is given for transformation. You read other books, but the Bible reads you. I suspect you don't even own a copy of the Bible Jessica, and if you do it is no doubt dusty. Sin will keep you from the Bible, and the Bible will keep you from sin. No one graduates from Bible study until they get to meet the Author. One day, just like all of us, Carrie Underwood will have to make an account for every word that was ever spoken from her mouth.

    That is even dummer than saying to read the orignial bible!! The king James edition is named so b/c in 1604 King James had it retranslated for the third time b/c the puritans had issues with the previous translation. And surprisingly enough after the KJ translation, divorce was no longer unlawful and the king soon had divorce after beheading after divorce. Yes lets read a book that was translated over 1600 years after it was first written in a language that was no longer used and added passages that allowed personal agendas!!!!

  15. Herlinda Galindo

    Thank you Erin, some people just WANT to hate I guess

  16. Pamela Coley Schrock

    My GOD believes you are perfect in every way. The folks condemning anyone will answer to GOD and the ones accepting and loving everyone will be answered by GOD! Don't loose faith because someone thinks they know what is good for you. Follow your own path and know that you are a Gift…

  17. Nancy Dees Solomon

    I'm sorry u feel the way u do….God does love u just as u are & he made u that way for a reason, why, no one knows, that doesn't make u a bad person or someone not to be loved. I love u….i just don't agree with your lifestyle BUT I don't have to answer for what you do on earth, you do, so even if I don't agree personally with what u do, it's your life & u have to answer to God. It still say in the Book of Leviticus that it is an abomination.

  18. Katie Pinkston

    God does know you. And he knows your trials. No matter what you do or have done about the situation if you followed God or your parents did-you have no worries. And I'm not a Bible thumper-just a plain ol lady that has seen a lot of things and learned the hard way-God rules-He also takes care of you-IF you let Him.
    It is your choice-He gave everyone of us the brain and mind to make choices.

  19. Jade Alyssa Arsenault

    This lady has time and time again proved to me what a kind hearted and beautiful person she is, inside and out. I'm so proud to be of a generation that is going against the repression of freedom for men and women that live like I do, and deserve to love with the respect that I get. Amen to you, Ms. Underwood. :)

    As a true christian, i ask that you grab a bible and look and see if the words MALE PROSTITUTE and HOMOSEXUAL are in there, i am going with no

  22. Jade Alyssa Arsenault

    If God is the God it says he is, then he is loving and caring. But if he is the God some people are sayin he is, that would condemn someone like you or someone born gay into Hell, then let me tell you, he is no God of mine.

  23. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    Whatever. Your book is not the only one to go by and people should not need a rule book for human decency. It should be naturally engrained not to kill or steal from one another. And the rest was made by men with personal opinions and agendas. Until I watch with my own eyes and see lightning engrave 1900 pages worth of rules, will I believe in the bible. not something written by different people with different messages/agendas/testamonies!!

  24. William Simpson

    No where in the bible does it say being gay is a sin! Also just because you're against it doesn't mean there should be a law against it. I'm against a lot of things but doesn't mean there should be a law banning what I'm against. Who are you to judge anyways? If you really followed the bible you would not judge anybody and would accept people for who they are.

  25. Gino Feriante

    The really important question is this: What does Santa Clause think about gay marriage? He probably opposes it, because what's next? If you allow gay people to marry, next thing you know Reindeer will want to marry Santa's little Elves…my god, could you imagine the problems we would have over that?

    Ok so we will ban football, and footballs will no longer be made and you will no longer be able to eat ham, And the pig, though it has a divided hoof, does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you. 8 You must not eat their meat or touch their carcasses; they are unclean for you. Also tattoos will be band and also you can't shave anymore, Do not cut the hair at the sides of your head or clip off the edges of your beard all this comes from the Bible in direct quote.

    @ Nancy Dees Solomon – With all that you just stated, do you think it is ok to take away the rights of homosexuals and not allow them to get legally marraried? In my opinion if you say that they do not deserve equal rights b/c they are commiting a sin in your opinion than it is still judging since you would make a judgement to vote on that right and it would directly affect people you do not even know one on one.

  29. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    Good point William. Just imagine if PETA had meat eating illegal. Just b/c they are against it does not mean that everyone else should not be allowed the right to eat meat!!!

  30. Misty Allen

    I think sin is sin, no matter what it is. All fall short of the glory of God… We are all are in need of the savior.. Another thing I have learned, is that the times I have strayed (sinned, yes I did) I regretted… I have discovered that the words in that "book" were not meant to condemn, but to give life to those willing to follow… I do not agree with gay marriage any more than I agree with me having three brownies when I really knew I should've had only one! Lol! We are to love all, but not agreeing with gay marriage is not saying I do not love or believe in love… Gays can love each other without "a piece of paper". And the marriage covenant is a "Christian" belief and doctrine originally anyway… or is supposed to be.

  31. Sabrina Brie Hill

    Hey Katie, I see that your son wears a military uniform. I am an Army veteran, (It was a V.A. medical examination that found the spare internal parts, I had always thought that the peritoneal scar that I had was normal, and as far as anyone looked during Vietnam, I looked like a guy in the showers, but I had always known that something was dreadfully wrong). Let your son know that I always hold those that are in the military up in prayer.

  32. BonnieLu Moran

    ok the niv says prostitute and homosexual, but I also have another verson (kjv) that also discourages homosexuality:Leviticus 20:13: "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them

  33. Vickie Traver

    Jesus loves all people; but has made it clear about sin; and this action is SIN; it does not make a difference who feels it is right or who feels it is wrong; God and His Son have said it is a sin; in the New Testament; get over this Leviticus quotes and start quoting the New Testament; Jesus made it clear it is a sinful lifestyle; when Jesus came was it not because we could not live by the LAWS OF THE OLD TESTAMENT? The LAWS GOD SET FOR ALL OF US! We are all sinners; we are all born that way; and we have to all stop sinning; it is what God demands; we know that we will fail; but unlike those that do not know the difference I know my sins are sins; my question to you is this do you? Do you follow Christ teachings? Do you follow in His footsteps? When He picked his disciples they were all sinners; they did not continue killing, collecting taxes, worshiping false gods; no they turned away from that life and Followed the Son of God, Christ Jesus; are you willing to turn from your sins, Follow Him; and give up what man says is right and do what Jesus says is moral? I am and I know I am a sinner; I have accepted God at his word; I have accepted that those that do not do as He has asked will go to hell; He is a loving God; but it is also a God of truth; he destroyed the world because of sin; He destroyed 2 towns because of sin; read your history people of what these people were doing; (homosexual actions were in both of these) and why God destroyed them; God has given you free will; it is your choice to Follow Him or to Follow MAN! I do not care if I am politically correct; I do not care what others think; I do not care if you think I do not love you because I disagree with sin; I care about your soul; and I FOLLOW CHRIST! You have the same choice as I do; and until God HIMSELF comes and tells me HE WAS WRONG SENDING HIS SON; THAT HE WAS WRONG SAYING IN THE NEW TESTAMENT THAT A MAN LYING WITH A MAN; A WOMEN LYING WITH A WOMEN IS SIN; not one person on the face of this earth will EVER change my mind; You are not God; you are not Christ Jesus; and you are not the Holy Spirit; so I do not care what you think of my beliefs on sin! I follow my Savior and His Fathers word the Bible! God's love and Blessings to all!

  34. Barbara Slack

    FIRST AND FOR MOST, GOD DOES NOT JUDGE, SO WHY IN THE HELL DO YOU! DO YOU THINK THAT YOUR BETTER THEN GOD, WELL I DON'T THINK SO. SO GET UP OFF YOUR AZZZZZ AND GO BACK TO CHURCH, AND LEARN THE TRUE MEANING OF THE BIBLE.

  36. William Simpson

    lol I commented on another thing on here how Leviticus says we are not suppose to eat pigs or touch their skin so we should band eating ham and footballs. All the bible is is a set of rules to benefit the church and condemn others. It is only written by man and really not the word of god. The Bible has been changed more than any other book out there. Religions pick and choose what it wants and what it doesn't want. So I don't believe in God nor anything that happened in the Bible seeing as it was written by man.

  37. William Simpson

    Actually in the Bible God is cruel, he says slavery is ok and the we should stone teenagers who don't listen to their parents. You guys can sit and say God is loving but never really know what the Bible says.

    I am all for gay marriage! If they are two consenting adults then who are we to tell them what they can and cannot do? Gay marriage is fine we don't have to push our values onto everybody. Let them live their lives, you don't have anybody telling you how to live yours so let it be and love one another and make this world a better place instead of a world full of hate.

  40. Michael Kennedy

    show me in the bible where it speaks of homosexuality, i bet you can't, cause it's not in there. the Bible is just a book of great stories, that's all it is, and plus the Bible was written by men, who have faulty memories. go by the 10 commandments, those are directly from the hand of God

  41. William Simpson

    Exactly we are suppose to believe that God said that when it was written by man? Go and write a book and say God said it and you'd get locked up in a nut house. I think the people who wrote the Bible were just crazy people.

  42. Cynthia Perry

    The Bible is not just another book, it is the Word of God! All people r given choices to make, and their destiny will depend on the choices they make. Ultimately it is God our Creator who will decide who choose to live according to His will and who will spend eternity with Him.

  43. William Simpson

    Do you have proof that it is actually the word of God? The Bible has been changed so many times just to suit certain kings. Martin Luther didn't like how the church was so what did he do? He started his own branch of Christianity picking and choosing what the King wanted in it.

  44. Jessica Padilla

    no charles, i do not owe the disgusting, hate filled book you call a bible. I am very proud to say that I am not, nor will I EVER be christian. I am a Wiccan and very glad to be one b/c we have only ONE rule, and I bet you don't know it. And if you're such a 'good' christian, you wouldn't be separated from your wife and you would have a good paying job so you could give 50% of your income to your church….

  45. Jessica Padilla

    correction, own* there is no way in the entire world that I would ever own a bible…

  46. Blaquekatt Maddox

    The last time i checked the bible has been rewritten and changed by more then 100 people. In 1611 King James who decided that it was his turn to rewrite the bible changed a lot of things. One of which was that god hated gay people. But if god is so loving fair and just then why would he make a person gay and then tell them that they can't be gay. The way i see it is man is a fallible creature and seems to like twisting words so how can the words that god first designed having been changed by so many men mean anything it meant when god first created it. Was it not Jesus who said let he who has not sinned cast thy first stone. Everyone sins and no one really lives life the way the bible tells them to so who are you to judge.

  47. Tony Lindo

    just your selfish gay self huh…therein lies the rub with gays….they care only for themselves…narcicissim gone amok

  48. William Simpson

    God does not exist. Religion was made up to explain why things happen before science came around. It was also a way for some to condemn others while benefiting them. Why do you think in some religions there is a limbo and purgatory and in others there is not yet the bibles are the same just with some passages changed?

    We are being fruitful…when your daughters get pregnant out of wedlock (which is an abomination) and they don't want the children, we gays get to adopt and raise good kids..! So therefore we are doing our part..!! I am sure you had sex before you were married..your wife should have been stoned to death along with you ..! I am also sure you eat Bar-B-Q…well you are going to hell..! God created everyone, Adam, Eve and Steve..! Keep your opinins to yourself..!

    I don't support anything that is sin or doesn't glorify God, like porn, demonic movies, or even secular music. So why do people have to assume I hate gays just because I don't support homosexuality. They can do what they want but I am not going to be held accountable by God for promoting sin in the earth. Besides why are gays so special, gamblers, fornicators, adulterers, and lairs don't rally for their sins. So why cant gays just except that like the others. Here are some scriptures about homosexuality in the NEW testament: 1Tim1:10, 1Cor9:6, and Romans 1:26-28.
    It is in the same category as other sins it is NOT worse than the others so therefore, they should NOT be TREATED worse. They are only scrutinized because it is an obvious sin, unlike other sexual sins. This being said all of them can be saved by Jesus. Mosaic Laws says they should be stoned, however Jesus said he has redeemed us from the curse of the law, however, Jesus NEVER promoted and acknowledged sin was okay. In fact he told the people he healed YOUR SINS ARE FORGIVEN, GO AND SIN NO MORE. A person CANNOT fight sin with carnal(natural) instinct or will, BUT only truly with the Holy Spirit, which is a free gift to those who accept Jesus through faith. IF YOU WALK INTHE SPIRIT YOU WILL NOT FULFILL THE LUST OF THE FLESH (Galatians 5:16) Just like any other form of lust it can be overcome. Jesus even said that in heaven there is no sex(Mat22:23-30), so sex is carnal NOT spiritual. The news media never talks about the former homosexual people who wrote books or started ministries because the power of the Holy Spirit freed them from ALL of their sins.

    Jesus even said Marriage was between Man and woman. Matthew19:3 Some Pharisees came and tried to trap him with this question: “Should a man be allowed to divorce his wife for just any reason?”4 “Haven’t you read the Scriptures?” Jesus replied. “They record that from the beginning ‘GOD MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE.’” 5 And he said, “‘This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.’(Gen2:24) 6 Since they are no longer two but one, let no one split apart what God has joined together.” 7 “Then why did Moses say in the law that a man could give his wife a written notice of divorce and send her away?” they asked. 8 Jesus replied, “Moses permitted divorce only as a concession to your hard hearts, but it was not what God had originally intended. 9 And I tell you this, whoever divorces his wife and marries someone else commits adultery—unless his wife has been unfaithful. Later on Jesus evens adds something new, he says DIVORCE is adultery, look at another woman with lust.

    To CONSERVATIVES: Homosexuality may be sin, however, Jesus did not CONDEMN the sinners, NOR did he SIN with the SINNERS, but he FREED them from their sin through love. If you don't believe that, then your saying, HE DIED FOR NOTHING, and HIS BLOOD WAS WORTHLESS. We are saved by GRACE through our FAITH NOT our good works. (Romans 4:1-4) Things like "death by stone" are not applicable because we have grace and mercy through Christ. "Let the one who has never sinned cast the first stone.” (John8:4-10) God will judge YOU for allowing yourself to be used by SATAN and PUSHING gays away from his WORD with your CONDEMNATION, instead of winning them with love. However, if they reject Christ then kick the dust off your feet and move on. (Matthew 10:14) They have may their to stay under Satan as reprobates, perhaps one day they will get saved, you NEVER know, YOU weren't BORN saved, that why Jesus says to be BORN AGAIN. John 3:3 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.”.

    To LIBERALS: Homosexuality is a sin, however, Jesus did not CONDEMN the sinners, NOR did he SIN with the SINNERS, but he FREED them from their sin through love. The wages of sin is DEATH, and Jesus came to free us from them. He loves so much he DIED and went to HELL in our place (John3:16). Satan took over the earth, when Adam sinned(Gen3:7) so he rules the earth, and everyone is going to hell by default, but Jesus deid and went to hell to give the authority back to man and so man has a choice.(Romans5:12-17) Only Jesus's power can free you from Satan's reign. (Hebrews2:14-18) With the power of the holy spirit we can overcome sin. It is like if is is going to rain God offers you an umbrella, you CAN say thank you and take, or you can look at the sunny sky and say "doesn't look like its going to rain". If YOU SAY NO then it is not Gods fault if you get wet. God can only PROTECTS those under His power and authority, Satan ATTACKS those who are not and God gets the BLAME. As said earlier (Galatians 5:16), John 16:33 I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” 1 John 5:4 For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. Romans 12:1 And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. 2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

    BOTH: God does NOT condemn to Hell, Satan (which means accuser), is the prosecutor and God judges by the LAW of Moses (Leviticus) therefore Satan condemns you of your sins, however Jesus is a lawyer, he has taken our place because his blood which was pure was an acceptable sacrifice. (Hebrews 8:7-12) There are examples of God's mercy and grace even in the old testament, here is one of my favorites: Zechariah 3:1 Then the angel showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord. The ACCUSER, SATAN, was there at the angel’s right hand, MAKING ACCUSATIONS AGAINST JOSHUA. 2 And the Lord said to Satan, “I, THE LORD, REJECT YOUR ACCUSATIONS, SATAN. Yes, the Lord, who has chosen Jerusalem, REBUKES YOU. This man is like a burning stick that has been snatched from the fire.” Like that Jesus is the rebuker, and only he can free you from Satan's bondage.

    Isaiah 55:8 “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.9 For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.

    The Bible says to work out your own salvation in fear and trembling..!!! So let me worry about my soul..its not your JOB!!!!!! make sure you get yourself there..!! Unless you are perfect and know no sin, then by all means judge me and tell me what you are doing..but I and everyone else knows the only perfect person was Christ..!

    I think you are missing the point with Leviticus; didn't God send His Son because He knew we could not live by the laws He had set for us? and who would cut their body for the dead? and I for one do not believe you should tattoo your body; also do not have pierced ears or any piercings; the point is also made in the New Testament; Read 1 Corth all the way and see if you see anything about Homosexuality; I for one look at the Old Testament as a history of the Jewish people; and God was telling his people how to live to get to heaven; because they all failed; He sent His son; so that all of us not just he Jews could get to Heaven; and this is a sinful lifestyle; I do not care how you feel about it; just because we all sin; does not mean we are all right; now does it! Is that not the point of why Jesus Christ came? So save us from ourselves because we can not stop sinning? We are born to sin; it is in our nature to do so; we can not help ourselves no matter how hard we try; and if anyone thinks they will make it to heaven because they are without sin they are wrong; the only way is through Christ Jesus and Following HIM; I for one will listen to His teaching and His words; as spoken in 1st Corn! Do not care what you say; or how you feel on the subject! God will be the judge and the fact that you said it says a lot of crazy things means you are not a believer; so do not quote something you have no faith in! When you read the whole BIBLE and are move by the Holy Spirit and you are saved by Christ Jesus and Follow Him and Live His teaching; and walk in His footsteps on a daily walk; please then give me a text and let me know your thoughts and feelings; until then; all we can do is pray for your soul! In God's love and Christ's teaching have a great a blessed day! I for one love all people and hate all sin; and this lifestyle is a sin; just as I sin! Love to you!

    Nothing to do with God. A lot to do with genetics etc…

  57. William Simpson

    God doesn't exist, you're going by a book that was written by man and men who were psychotic and had issues. Religion was a way to explain why things happened before science came around. Stop and think about why hasn't God spoken to anybody in the past 2000 years? Why has the Bible been changed so many times to suit kings? Why hasn't the Bible been added to? Why aren't there prophets now a days? Face it the Bible is just a book that was written by crazy people. There is no God

  58. Diane Lynne Perkins Hammond

    To be truthful – I did not have sex before I was married and I do have an opinion in the same way that you have an opinion – so why is it okay for you to express yours – but I'm not to express mine? I was commenting just as you were commenting and the freedom should be on both sides to state what they believe…..my comment was not to offend but yet I am still entitled to say what I believe…..in the same way that you are entitled to say as you believe……I do however disagree with Ms. Underwood and that is why I left a comment. And yes, Christ is the only perfect person. On that we can agree.

  59. Kay Repine

    Hope Carrrie reads this….what has happened to Carrie..she use to be country anything but…..go into the rock and roll scene you do that more then country music…where is your first love Carrie…We are to love all people..does not mean we agree with their lifestyle or way of living…we will be praying for you Carrie…we want to see the old Carrie..sing about your first love….. kay

  60. Michael Kennedy

    and plus some of the apostles did'nt write things down right away, cause there was no way to do so back then, some of them started writing thier books much later after Jesus's death, so thier memories could've been faulty

  61. Cynthia Perry

    @michael Kennedy & William Simpson …the Bible was pened by man (loyal followers of God), however it was inspired by God , The Holy Spirit. In the book of Romans 1:26-32 it explains that when man rejects God, it was then that God rejects man gives him over to his sin and degrading passions. In these passages it also talk about men and women turned from the natural ways with each other and choose to have relations with there own gender.
    In 1 Timothy 1:8-11 it explains that. Homosexuals are sinners, lawless and rebellious. These r just 2 examples, there are many more. So to answer u r question, the bible definitely does address the issue. But like I said God has given everyone the freedom of choice, the choices they make will determine where the spend eternity. And if Carrie Underwood and her church really understood that Marriage is a sacred establishment by God for the sacred reason of procreation then she would be more careful of the public statements that she makes. It is one thing to accept those who choose to live a gay lifestyle but Approval of such a lifestyle is against God's will and plan for humanity as He created it.

  62. Pamela Coley Schrock

    Legal issues should not be decided by a church. In America you get a license to marry. It is a legal contract between two people who have either reached the age of majority OR have their parents consent. That is what the homosexual community is asking for. They do not want your church/mosque/synagogue to "condone" what they are doing. They just want you to stay the hell out of what they are doing…

  63. William Simpson

    Ok I'll go out kill somebody and say God told me to do it. It's legit because God told me! See the problem with the Bible? It's a second hand source and as most know the most unreliable source.

  64. William Simpson

    Ok but you're going off of a book written by men thousands and thousands of years ago? It has been rewritten and changed to suit the kings. Why hasn't God spoken to anybody in the past 2000 years? Why hasn't the Bible been added to? I'm going to write a book and claim God told me this and if anyone says I'm wrong then they are stupid for believing in the Bible because it was written by men who claimed God spoke to them.

  65. Katie Pinkston

    If you don't know that God is who the Bible says he is-you're too old to wait to find out. Read-research-PRAY>

  66. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    I was raised Jewish in a Christian society and am now an Atheist. And the same right that allows you to write your diatribe above gives me the same right to state that I think it is ALL garbage and that there is no God(s). Only when we are both dead can one of us say I told you so. But I can quote from any thing I damn well please. The point I was trying to make was that if someone is going to judge one group of people b/c a book tells them it is wrong while saying a lot of other things are wrong, than they better be able to point the finger at everyone for every sin as well as themselves. You can't pick and choose which sin is the one to attack. And good for you that you don't have any tattoos or piercings. But I bet if your kid was argumentative I doubt you would go to your congregation and tell them to help you kill your child as the bible commands. I do feel you have the right to practice your religion just as i feel homosexuals have the right to love whomever they want to love, but once one or the other comes out and tries to harm the other (physically, emotionally or with legal degradation) that is when I have an issue and will stand up!!! But please don't waist your time praying for me.

  67. Vickie Traver

    Really that is your thoughts and you are welcome to them; and that is not a true statement; God speaks all the time; you just have to listen; and the Bible please try to prove it wrong; many have tried and they can not; many scholars and they can not; with their science; and they have only proved that it is right; so try again! The earth was destroyed with water; 2 cities were destroyed; they even tried to prove the plagues did not happen again they proved they did; please stop and read the Dead Sea Scrolls that are over 2000 years old; but yet the Bible reads today word for word as they do and they were not found until after the Bible was written; read the Bible and do Noah's ark; make it as the Bible said; the science said it would not stand a flood of that kind; they built it and they were wrong; the Ark of the Covendent build it; see if it does as it says in the Bible; it is a book that was spoken by God written by His chosen people! I do not need anyone to prove to me why the earth is here; prophets are every where; I am one; my son is one; all of Christ people are his prophets; why hasn't the Bible been added to; why it is perfect!!! It tells you how to live; how to get to Heaven; it tells you about the end of times; it tells you everything you need to know; why add to it! Do you believe in Abe Lincoln? You have not seen him; you only go by what other people have written; do you believe in King Tut? Again only written words? It is only by faith; faith in the people that have written down the history; so are all these people crazy too? You just do not want to believe because you do not want to live by His morals and His standards! As I said prove the Bible WRONG!!! I think science said the earth was flat; didn't they were they right? Think since said homosexuality was a mental disorder and treated it up to the 70's? So did they make a mistake in their science? I can go on and on with how science has been wrong so many time; think they said that smoking was good for you; that was so right on wasn't it! So do not tell me about your science! I will take my God, my Savior, my Holy Spirit against your science any day! And every knee will bow; and I look forward to the day when you to will bow before HIM! Now I am not crazy; I am college educated; and I am done! Learned along time ago all is in God's hands and this is in HIS!

  68. William Simpson

    God doesn't exist he was made up to explain why stuff happened. I have thousands of books on a shelf many science fiction should I believe that the books are true just because they're in text? Once and for all don't you see the Bible is just a book written by man there is not God the people who wrote the Bible were fucking nuts.

  69. Katie Pinkston

    Then all I can say-is-I'll pray for you. God bless you and keep you until you know He is real!

  70. Michael Kennedy

    not to be disrespectful, Vickie, but i don't, personally believe the only way into heaven is through Christ, maybe for Christians it is, but how about people from other religions, like Buddism, etc. i believe that God did not just have one Son that He sent down, but several Sons that He spread out all over the world over time like Buddha

  71. William Simpson

    Ok so if I write a book and claim it was the word of God it's legit because I said it was the word of God.

  72. Jade Alyssa Arsenault

    I never said it was real, I myself am not a Christian, but I was raised in a Christian home. I am not claiming anything, just sayin that if it is to be believed, that is what is said in it.

  73. William Simpson

    Katie Pinkston So you're claiming that your religion is right and all others are wrong?

  74. Noreen Burkett

    God didn't write the Bible…man did. I don't follow man-made rules because they are only giving their opinion (and mine is as good as theirs). God recited the Ten Commandments and Moses chiseled them on stone tablets. Therefore, I will follow The Ten Commandments.

  75. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    The problem with your comment above is even though (according to your book) eating three brownies might be wrong, there are no laws that govern everyone whether the follow that book or not that takes away their rights! Do you think that there should be a law that fat people should not be allowed to open a bakery? Only thin active people should be allowed because they know the meaning of self control and can help guide others to the correct amount that each person should be allowed to consume. Sounds stupid doesn't it. Now substitute homosexuality. They are not looking for your approval or acceptance or even friendship! They only want the same legal rights that you are given!!!

  76. William Simpson

    Leviticus 11:7-8 7 And the pig, though it has a divided hoof, does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you. 8 You must not eat their meat or touch their carcasses; they are unclean for you.

  77. Kelly Crews Satterwhite

    You know it really does not matter what Carrie Underwood says, it only matters what God says. He is very clear on the subject. What matters above all else is what you do with God's son Jesus Christ. He is and will always be the only way to a personal relationship with God. Sin separated us from God, so sacrifices had to be made, then God sent His only son to earth. He then was crucified for all of our sins on the cross, he himself being sin free. He took ours and His father had to look away and with that Christ shed his blood for us and it covered all of our sins. We have to accept Jesus as our personal savior ask forgiveness for our sins then we have a restored relationship with God! If you choose not to believe this or do this then you will not find yourself in heaven for all eternity, you will find yourself in hell. This is in the Bible does not matter what you feel or think, it is the way God says. If you say a loving God would not send someone to hell, well he doesn't, you choose it. Not only is God a loving God he is also a just and righteous God and He cannot look upon sin. So you either cover your sin in the blood of Jesus so you can talk to God or you are on your own and saying what you think God would or would not do and you have no idea what He thinks on the subject. That just shows your foolishness.

  78. William Simpson

    Katie I have researched how do you think I know what I know? Also do you eat ham? Leviticu 11:7-8 7 And the pig, though it has a divided hoof, does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you. 8 You must not eat their meat or touch their carcasses; they are unclean for you.

  79. Cynthia Perry

    @ Betty B.W. amen sister all we can do is pray that the lost will soon come to understand God's will for their lives.
    @Herlinda..the world has not changed much. in the old testament are many examples do sin and immorality. There are also many stories do how God punished and destroyed those who lived in such sin and immorality. e.g. Sodom and Gomorrah and Noah' Arch. God will show His wrath upon the sinners of today when He is ready. God never changes He is always Holy and unless we accept the rightness of Jesus Christ as redeemer and Savior we will never spend eternity in peace and the Love of God Almighty.
    Take A Chance…join a bible study group with an open mind and get to know the truth ….Jesus Christ!!!

  80. William Simpson

    Tony Lindo You're a moron. It's their life let them live it the way they want to not you. Should I come to your house and tell you what to do?

  81. William Simpson

    I don't believe anything they said. People lie and make stuff up all the time. Should I believe a science fiction novel just because it was written?

  82. William Simpson

    I don't believe anything they said. People lie and make stuff up all the time. Should I believe a science fiction novel just because it was written?

  83. Cynthia Perry

    Sabrina and Herlinda…check out my complete response to
    Betty B.W. it continues with a special message for u both.

  84. Derek Vincent

    This was the one issue I was terrified to know her opinion on because I was so scared she'd be against it and I can't support an artist who doesn't think I deserve a family. I have never been so pleasantly surprised in my entire life.

  85. William Simpson

    Leviticus 11:7-8 7 And the pig, though it has a divided hoof, does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you. 8 You must not eat their meat or touch their carcasses; they are unclean for you.

  86. Vickie Traver

    You wrote the Dead Sea Scrolls? Which are over 2000 years old? That were written in Hebrew before the Bible was written; and the Bible of today reads word for word as it reads; I am impressed! How old are you? You are one for that science you love so much!

  87. Tony Lindo

    William Simpson I rather be a moron in your eyes than a homosexual…you dont get aids..or rupture your spleen and need a cholestomy bag by just being a moron…

  88. William Simpson

    Yeah because no straight person has AIDS? There is nothing wrong with being gay. Should I hate you for the color of your skin? If it's ok to discriminate against gays then it's ok to discriminate against a person race. You can say one is ok and another is not. It doesn't work that way.

  89. Vickie Traver

    Did they say that just because somene is gay they will go to hell? or that because he was born that way he would go to hell? No we will all go to hell by our actions; we all sin; we are all born to sin; ALL OF US ARE BORN THAT WAY! We have to stop sinning; Follow Christ; and only through Christ can we be saved! If you think you will be in heaven with people without sin you are in for a big surprise; we will all be sinners; but God; His Son Christ Jesus; and the Holy Spirit; so think again! I am against the gay lifestyle but I have friends and family that I love that are gay; and I would die for them! So think again that I am a hater! Christ died for me; does that mean he hates me? or does that mean he hates the sin that I do everyday?

  90. William Simpson

    What about people of other religions are they going to hell for not believing in Christ? So you're saying your religion is the right religion and others are wrong? Also why would a loving and caring God only let a select few in and not others? Also the image we have of hell was never put in the Bible, it was Dante's The Divine Comedy that actually portrays we we see as hell and no religion had limbo or purgatory in their religion until The Divine Comedy came out.

  91. Derek Vincent

    If marriage should be between one man and one woman "as it was in the Bible," then why is marriage in forms of polygamy all through the Bible? Marriage wasn't created as a form of love in the Bible, it was created for families to survive. Parents would sell their daughters to men in exchange for land, or livestock, or crops. Men would buy many, many wives through their lives to reproduce and have daughters to sell themselves. Since marriage has evolved into a foundation of love to start raising a family, why is gay marriage so evil then?

  92. Herlinda Galindo

    There are Ten commandments …. Straight from God. NO WHERE DOES it specifically say a word about marriage only to heterosexuals only…. If you want to split hairs on what makes a parent, not all females/males couples have always been perfect, and I have seen many wonderful loving same sex parents give loving homes to children and if you think GOD would hate that? Then you are all SICK! Children NEED LOVE and there are many from BROKEN homes from REGULAR PARENTS that don't give it them! So, LOVE must prevail people! LOVE LOVE LOVE! stop your hate! GOD IS LOVE! No matter who you are!

  93. Sherri Long

    Well, I went to Red Lobster on Saturday and ate shellfish…shrimp. I have one tatoo, I swear too much, and I look at cute guys. I also support Gay marriage as I have Gay friends. I guess I will burn burn burn since these things are a sin and all….NOT. I know my God loves me as I love Him. I am not perfect, but not so bad that I can't get into Heaven

  94. William Simpson

    Ok if God demolished those cities then why hasn't he demolished Las Vegas? There is so much sin that goes on there it's not even funny. God spoke to me today and told me to write a new Bible, you can't say I'm lying because you believe in the Bible and that was written by men who God spoke to.

  95. Derek Vincent

    I'm in Bible Study, a wonderful, wonderful class that has made my life worth something again because these ugly, ugly people on here attacking Ms. Underwood used to make me think God hated me and my life was worth nothing. This class has helped me read the Bible in a way that I wouldn't have understood it before because it is the hardest book in the history of human literature to interpret. Basically, one rule, if anything you read from the book doesn't make you a more compassionate, more loving or, in general, a better person for all of society, you are interpreting it wrong.

  96. Sabrina Brie Hill

    So then, what you are SAYING Lynn S-Evens, is that the GOD that SPOKE the ENTIRE UNIVERSE into being, is NOT in control of simple genetics? We humans can AND DO "splice genes" but GOD was in capable of changing what was happening to me in my mother's womb? THAT would make US more powerful than GOD, which is a claim that Satan made, in Isaiah 14:12-17. That claim, that he was "higher" than GOD earned him the punishmentl spoken of it the book of Ezekiel, chapter 28, and verses 12 through 19. Before you say that GOD was speaking of, and to a man, ask yourself, was the mortal King of Tyre, a man born of a woman, present in Eden, the Garden of GOD? Did he walk in the midst of the firey stones that were in front of the throne of GOD in Heaven? Of course not, this is Lucifer that GOD is speaking to. And if you people CAN NOT get it straight in your heads that Satan, and the lost will NOT burn eternally, (that ALSO would make GOD a bigger devil than the Devil), but shall eventually "BE NO MORE FOREVER". (Those are GOD'S WORDS to Satan.
    HOW does GOD feel about those of us that have been compromised when it comes to our sexual identity?
    Read Isaiah Chapter 56, and verses 1 through 5. When you read it then go to the New Testament, and LOOK what Yeshua HIMSELF, (see the red letters?), says about how some BECOME "Eunuch's". (NO, I am NOT going to give you the address of that scripture exert a little effort and FIND IT.

  97. William Simpson

    I never claimed that I said I will write a book and claim it was the word of God. Also yes the Bible has changed a lot. Look up Martin Luther, he didn't like what the church was doing so he posted 95 thesis and made the church mad and he said screw it and came up with the protestant religion and the King I think Louie? wanted a divorce and under the current Bible it was prohibited and well the king said I'll keep you safe if you allow divorces and said ok I can do that. Also your reading comprehension sucks I never said I wrote the Dead Sea Scrolls.

  98. William Simpson

    Anybody could get AIDS If they have sex with a person who has AIDS lol

  99. Vickie Traver

    Jesus loves everyone; he hates sin; that is why he came! We are all sinners; and Heaven will be full of sinners; each and everyone of us; I sin every day; that is the point; I was born to sin; I have chosen to turn my life over to God; Follow Christ; and live by His standards; knowing I will sin; that Christ saved me; but I must never stop trying not to sin; because God demands it of me; Jesus himself said those without sin throw the 1st stone; and then told her to go from this place AND SIN NO MORE!! He did not say just keep sinning; just to let you know I have a friend like a brother that is gay; and a niece that is gay; I love them unconditionally; but they also know that I do not agree with their lifestyle and feel it is a sinful one; with that said they also know I would die for them! I have stood behind them; believed in them; and fought for them; I will continue to do so; just as they do me; they also do not believe that everything I do in my life is without sin; because it is not! My sin is just as bad as any sin; Jesus made it clear one sin is just as another sin; none is worse or better then another! I do not feel it is a discrimination to make laws to govern people; and Jesus and His Father made it clear of that! Marriage was a religious institution and as such I guess it should stay that way! If you want our God out of your gov't then you need to keep your gov't out of our God and our religious beliefs! Where are you going to draw the line as to whom should marry whom? Just because they "love" each other let them get married? Some states you can not marry 1st cousins should we change that? Should fathers marry their daughters? Should brothers marry their sisters? See if they love each other then they should have rights that would be discrimination also! Should 25 years olds be allowed to marry 12 year olds; after all they love each other; and years ago and in other countries that would not be a problem! Maybe we should go back to arranged marriage and keep love out of it all together! The point is that we have the right to disagree with you without being called haters; or that we are crazy; I believe this is a sin; and nothing you or anyone says will change that! Just as you do not think it is a sin! I do not see it as discrimination; because it is not meant to be; it is sinful! I do not hate them; I do not want to see them dead or locked up or stoned; they asked for my opinion; and when it all comes down to the end; Yes Jesus through His Father God will discriminate because He will judge and those that are found worthy will not have everlasting life; I for one do not want to see that happen to anyone! It saddens me to think of that! Because I love all people! All laws discriminate! Fact of life

  100. William Simpson

    Ok then don't eat ham or touch a football either Leviticus 11:7-8 7 And the pig, though it has a divided hoof, does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you. 8 You must not eat their meat or touch their carcasses; they are unclean for you. Also don't talk back to your parents because in the Bible God said if a child does they must be stoned, Deuteronomy 21:18-21 18 If someone has a stubborn and rebellious son who does not obey his father and mother and will not listen to them when they discipline him, 19 his father and mother shall take hold of him and bring him to the elders at the gate of his town. 20 They shall say to the elders, “This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious. He will not obey us. He is a glutton and a drunkard.” 21 Then all the men of his town are to stone him to death. You must purge the evil from among you. All Israel will hear of it and be afraid.

  101. Anne Manzari Williamson

    After reading all of the comments I see here, I feel sorry for humankind. I believe in God, I do not believe in organized religion. The Bible was written and edited many times, before we got what we have today. To me, it is the ones that attend church that are the most judgmental people on the face of the earth. If it is not THEIR way, then they don't want to even hear about it. Most Christians are very close minded people. I believe in gay marriage. While I do not condone the lifestyle, what they do is non of our freakin' business! I don't think you would like it if the government came and told you, you could not marry someone you love! Think about it! Put yourself in their shoes for once in your life!

  102. William Simpson

    Ok so I propose we do everything according to the Bible then. If your child doesn't listen to you then they must be stoned! Deuteronomy 21:19-21 18 If someone has a stubborn and rebellious son who does not obey his father and mother and will not listen to them when they discipline him, 19 his father and mother shall take hold of him and bring him to the elders at the gate of his town. 20 They shall say to the elders, “This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious. He will not obey us. He is a glutton and a drunkard.” 21 Then all the men of his town are to stone him to death. You must purge the evil from among you. All Israel will hear of it and be afraid. Also footballs will be made illegal and nobody will be allowed to eat ham, Leviticus 11:7-8 7 And the pig, though it has a divided hoof, does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you. 8 You must not eat their meat or touch their carcasses; they are unclean for you. So this is how it should be according to you religious people. This is the word of God and so it must be done right? You guys want religion in government so bad so lets do what the Bible says!

  103. Steve Weatherspoon

    Brie, I have met you and I am not concerned about what you were born with; but who you are now. Your a great person and so is T. Glad both are my friends.

  104. Derek Vincent

    OK, but who are you to say who should have the right to a family constitution like a marriage certificate? I think when Jesus looks over all this "gay marriage controversies," he's a lot more concerned over the people belittling each other than the people who love some people that other people claim they shouldn't. Besides, aside from religion, it's unconstitutional. 14th amendment of the US Constitution: No state shall make or enforce any law which denies to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

  105. Steve Weatherspoon

    I do get tired of "Bible Thumpers" and this area is full of them. Better that thou types; whos destination so uncertain; but they will know when they get there. Hope it not too hot.

  106. William Simpson

    Because some people don't like it and we have to live our lives the way they do. We are not allowed to live for ourselves we have to live to make others happy. That's what they want, they believe their way of life is the only way of life.

  107. William Simpson

    Because some people don't like it and we have to live our lives the way they do. We are not allowed to live for ourselves we have to live to make others happy. That's what they want, they believe their way of life is the only way of life.

  108. Kolleen Otte

    Do you William realize that all of your quotes are from the old testament of the Bible and none from the New Testament.

  109. William Simpson

    What difference does it make? It's the word of God what you all claim is right. Yes I do realize it's the old testament. You're not getting what I'm saying. You're all just quick to say I'm right because I'm a Christian and everybody else is wrong. That's all you Christians do you shove your religion in others faces and look down on people who are not Christian. If you ask me you're fucked up for being that way. Religion does nothing but cause problems for people. Look at Muslim extremist.

  110. William Simpson

    Kolleen Otte Doesn't matter still the word of God. All you Christians always say I'm right because I'm a Christian and you're wrong. You're no better than anybody else. Just because in you believe in the words some crazy people wrote down many years ago doesn't make you better than anybody else. So you all sit there and say all other religions are wrong and yours is the only right religion.

  111. Lynette O'Donnell

    I feel sorry for you William. God has spoken to me many times in my 58 years of life. If you would listen, you might hear Him speaking to you too.

  112. William Simpson

    Ok you heard his voice loud and clear? Just as if someone was standing next to you?

  113. William Simpson

    A guy named Joseph Smith said the same thing and you know what he did? He started a religion do you know what that religion was? The Latter Day Saints. You know why he said that because he was caught having an affair and then said God showed him these golden tablets and on it polygamy is accepted. I think what you have is called a sense of security I too feel kinda like that and I know it's not good because no voices speak to me and if they did I would be in a nut house.

  114. Amy Fedezko-Peters

    I completely agree with Cruz, I'm pretty sure God basically says to love everyone. And you can't judge anyone unless your perfect. You can't really say you've never done anything the bible doesn't agree with. Disagreeing with someone's sexuality is honestly no ones business.

  115. William Simpson

    Why doesn't he just speak to me if he has endless power? I'll believe in him the he speaks to me. That's fair enough right? He has spoken to many non-believers but won't speak to them now?

  116. Donald Cook

    We are to love the person, not condone the sin…and it is sin just like adultery, etc. according to the Bible.

    I agree 100 % its not our place to judge and everyone does wrong at some point in their life, with that being said, I was raised christian and I know what my bible says, everyone has their own opinions and beleifs and i dont beleive it is right and natural, I disagree with it BUT I dont judge them based on their sexual prefrences, i have friends that are bi sexual and we get along great, they know my beleifs and I dont push anything on them. thats it

  118. BonnieLu Moran

    And yes God does say to love everyone, nobody said anything about hating anyone, its just like my pastor says, You dont have to agree or like someone or their beliefs but you must love the person to sum it up hate the sin, love the sinner :)

  119. Suzanne Nickerman-Brown

    God made Heaven, hell and the earth. You can believe what you want but in the end, God will decide who goes to heaven and who goes to hell. To all those hateful people towards believers of the Bible, when you die, Good Luck cause your going to need it. Especially you Lauren. Talk about being hateful, you take the cake. So just to help you understand, ALL THE OLD TESTAMENT laws are null and void because Jesus Christ fulfilled it all, so we don't have to. Quoting from the Old Testament just shows your ignorance. Maybe next time you read the Bible you should try doing it WITHOUT JUDGING GOD!

  120. Alyson Roberts

    Well to be honest, I'm surprised. I didn't think that Carrie thought that way. If anything I thought she was against gay marriages. But I'll tell ya one thing..I ain't supporting gay marriages NEVER. Its wrong and its certainly not Biblical.

  121. Suzanne Nickerman-Brown

    Hey James, good luck to you! It sounds like your really going to need it! Oh and by the way, this is a comment page, HELLO! If you haven't figured it out, I'm not like other Christians who really want lots of people in heaven. If your a hateful jerk, wow, I would really not want to see you there. It blows my mind how many people judge God because they don't really like how HOLY God is. Yep God is Holy, God is loving and God is kind. God asks ONE THING from all of us, repentance. Since He made Heaven, it's His home, and it's His choice who He wants to live with Him. Homosexuals who refuse to repent, just won't be given a key. Homosexuals who repent are just like all other people who really don't like their sins. What homosexuals are doing now is demanding that everyone accept their sins. What if theives did that, hey, they can't help it they see something they want and that is that. So since God made Heaven, its His rules and no one elses., no matter what they think. Heaven is NOT a democracy., its a Monarchy. and the Royal King Jesus Christ rules.

  122. Leighanna Boekeloo

    Vickie Traver You ma'am are no real friend to any of the gay people you know!! By calling their life a "lifestyle" and saying you are against it you are demonstrating that you do not really, know, love or understand these people!!

  123. Kathee Alexander McCarl

    Lauren – the Lord wanted no cuts on the body for the dead or tattoos because only the pagans did that. He wanted the Jews to be separate from the idol worshiping pagans. Please study your ancient Jewish history before making such statements that you know nothing about. You are just pulling out Bible verses without knowing the content to try and justify your position.

  124. Leighanna Boekeloo

    Tony Lindo What about straight people like myself who believe that all people should have equal rights? Are we selfish? The Civil Rights Movement is still recent enough for the wounds to be fresh for many people and yet those same individuals and their children are turning around and pushing down the heads of another minority group!! God forbid my daughter grows up to be a part black gay woman…that would be a really stupid "choice" on her part considering the hatemongers she would have to contend with!

  125. Amy Fedezko-Peters

    I understand that's your belief, and I'm glad you believe in something but unfortunately I have a tough time hearing that people can not believe in something that goes far beyond something being written in a book. I believe it's more scientific than that. If you believe God created life than you need to understand how the body works. It doesn't just fall into preference, like someone wakes up one day and they are gay or they choose to be. I do believe in God but I choose to believe in him differently than what you have chosen.

  126. Eric MacMillan

    Tony Lindo needs to educate himself a bit more on this topic instead of taking advice from whatever voodoo witch doctor he's obviously getting this info from. It's not that hard Tony… Education is a good thing. Open your eyes and open your mind. You might just realize what you;re missing in life!!!

  127. BonnieLu Moran

    Im sorry but I dont beleive anyone is simply "born gay" Im sorry and I dont beleive or have interest in anything scientific. again I dont judge someone what they choose to be i just have my beleifs and you have yours and I respect you for it :)

  128. BonnieLu Moran

    and in my opinion theres only one way to beleive in God, you can pick and choose what God says and go with it, Jesus says your either for me or against me, you cant pick and choose what you want to beleive if you say you beleive in God. just saying :)

  129. Sabrina Brie Hill

    Cynthia Perry, I hope that you read this. I assume that you know what a Hermaphrodite is, medical Science now calls us "Intersexed" We have, in differing amounts, the attributes, and physical organs, of BOTH sexes in our bodies. So, when we are BORN this way, WHICH are we? WHO chooses? When I was born in 1950 my parents were given the "choice". With mr being the first born, and "daddy" being Career Military, guess what was CHOSEN for me. The problem is that the very spirit of the child KNOWS what it is. They guessed wrong, and I grew up KNOWING that what I looked like, and what I WAS were two VERY different things. I won't go into detail about all the times that when I, from age FIVE, spoke, thought, or acted in ANY manner that suggested ANY sort of feminine connection, I woke up BADLY beaten after I came to. I was NEVER told how I was born untill AFTER I served HONORABLY in the Army for YEARS living a lifestyle that was DEVOID of sex, except for when I was in Asia where some of my "buddies" figured that I needed to just have sex with a PROSTITUTE, to be "CURED" of whatever it was that they thought I had, they knew that I was not a Homosexual, they just thought that I was not a "real" man. So I get taken by these NICE CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS who would all be in the Base Chapel every Sunday, AT GUNPOINT to a prostitute, THEY paid the money, and told her NOT to let me out of there "UNTIL SHE MAKES ME A MAM".
    Fast forward several decades, it is 1980, I am a student with a VERY good GPA IN THEOLOGY at Southern Missionary College, a Seventh Day Adventist Bible College. I have been TORTURED by my Dichotomy since I was FIVE, and in a set of quite exacting MEDICAL, tests that the V.A. Clinic paid for from the University of Tennessee, It was found out about my condition that my "parents" had kept hidden from me. When the then Chief of Reproductive Endocrinology CALLS my mother on the phone and TELLS HER what they found,
    she THEN, when I am 29 years old, tells me that I was NOT crazy, and that She knew that I was a GIRL from the moment that she laid eyes on me. "Daddy" told her that if she EVER breathed a word of it, they would NEVER find her, or my bodies.
    With THIS information, I went to the College Chaplin, telling him the entire story including showing him the medical results. What did this "MAN OF GOD" do? I was told that WHEN, not if the Dean of Students found out about this I would be GONE. He did, and I WAS. I was not even allowed to take my finals which were only a week away.
    I have been THROWN OUT of more Churches than any of you have ever walked into.

  130. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    Kathee – That does not make any sense. So god did not want the jews to be like pagans. but now its ok? it is either in the bible or not. you can't say oh well that was only about a certain group of people at a certain time in history. but then say the same damn book says homosexuality is an abomination now and for ever! make up your mind! It either all counts now and for ever or it doesn't! And for the "I'll live by the 10 Commandments b/c that was real" OMFG! So contradictory! Until I see with my own eyes, a thunder strike carve words and phrases into stone and no human or machine or animal is around to help it happen, then I will believe in "the hand of god" until then, it is all stories passed down again and again.

  131. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    How dare you say gays can love each other without a piece of paper!!! They don't care about the word! they don't care about the religious backing!!! They care about that F#@!ING paper, the legaly binding one!! The paper is not what binds them with love and they know that! What they want is the right to be there for each other in times of crisis and to make financial decisions together and to both be recognized! And to be able to adopt or have a surrogate and both be claimed as equal parents with equal rights! Imagine living with the same person for 30 years. And making a home with that person. And having a child with that person. And making life after death plans with that person. Now imagine one of those people get hurt and dies. Imagine now being told you are not allowed to be in the room when he/she passes. The love of your life! Now imagine that you are not allowed to tell the doctors the patients wishes and someone else can make those decisions even if it is not what that person wanted. Now imagine the body being taken somewhere that person did not want to be and the partner being told that if he/she shows up at the funeral he will be shot. Now imagine the partner losing their home and their possessions. Now place yourself in their shows and tell yourself that it is just a f#@!ing piece of paper!!! I have been through it all! I have seen a long time couple with a surrogate child and they broke up and one was not allowed any visitation rights since he was not biologically bonded and he was there from birth until age 7! Then with my own parents who got divorced but never separated, my mom is now losing everything she worked her entire life for to my ugly half brother and sisters. Her home that she has been in since 1983. her stocks. her car. all because of the lack of a stupid piece of paper!

  132. William Simpson

    So tattoos are ok now but they weren't then? When did God amend this?

  133. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    Because your rights aren't taken away because you fornicate, gamble or lie (unless you do it in court – legal proceeding). They don't "rally" b/c they have nothing to rally for! And no one is asking you to change your beliefs or condone their actions or even accept them. What they do want is to not be opposed when they say they want the same equal rights that you (and I'm sure you are just the most pious man there ever could be and can point the finger at others while not having a finger pointed back in return) and the other "sinners" have until the break the law!

  134. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    She did not say that she agrees with their lifestyle. What she said was that she can't imagine what it would feel like if her rights were taken away and she was not allowed to marry the one she loves. She only condones the equal treatment of all!!

  135. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    She did not say that she agrees with their lifestyle. What she said was that she can't imagine what it would feel like if her rights were taken away and she was not allowed to marry the one she loves. She only condones the equal treatment of all!!

  136. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    no one is asking you to change your beliefs or condone their actions or even accept them. What they do want is to not be opposed when they say they want the same equal rights that you and the other "sinners" have until the break the law!

  137. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    no one is asking you to change your beliefs or condone their actions or even accept them. What they do want is to not be opposed when they say they want the same equal rights that you and the other "sinners" have until the break the law!

  138. William Simpson

    She is still right God did say no tattoos and it's plain and clear that it's a no no. So what other way is there to interpret it? It's simple as someone asks to borrow my tools and I so no. NO means no, not I say no now but in a week you can borrow my tools.

  139. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    well the part about tattoos in in Leviticus and so is the main passage that people use against homosexuality. I'm sure that now you will say that that is different and the one was for a certain group of people for a certain time in history but the other is true then and now and solid. You can't have it two ways honey. The text is relevant then and now all of it, or none of it!!!

  140. William Simpson

    You know what's funny about christianity? If it doesn't benefit Christians or help them in any way it's a sin. It's a sin to have premarital sex and I know plenty of people who claim to be Christians that do that. So if Christians are against it it's a sin, and they bend the rules and say well interpret the way you want. They take the Bible literally when they're against something but when they're guilty they claim it's not to be taken seriously.

  141. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    @ Diane – so you think that we should all the the same right to express our opinions and that it is not anyone's right to take that away from another. Yet homosexuals do not have the right to get LEGALLY married (I/they do not care about the religious marriage and the churches recognition but the recognition of the state and federal departments which directly affect their lives & well being) HHHMMMMM seems a little lop sided to me….

  142. William Simpson

    When Christians are trying to condemn people for their actions they take the Bible literally, but when they're guilty of something they simple say that it's based on interpretation of the Bible and to not be taken seriously. I see a lot of hypocritical stuff going on here. It's ok as long as you're not gay or you're a Christian?

  143. Amy Fedezko-Peters

    I can believe whatever i want. I'm not close minded or sheltered. I understand what I need to know to be a good respectable person. The world is full of diverse people and your version of perfect or Gods wants isn't the same as others. I do know divorce and having sex out of wedlock is on Gods don't do list a little more than being a homosexual. People perceive things differently which can't distinguish right from wrong, just saying.

  144. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    the same book that condemns tattoos is what also holds the main passage that people use to show god is against homosexuality. I bet, Kathee that you would now say that that passage is exempt from your last statement and that it is true for all and forever. You can't have it two ways honey. Either that book is all right all the time or not. Not "Ohh I pick this passage today and this other passage can be thrown out as it is no longer relevant"

  145. Herlinda Galindo

    Ignorant people sweetheart …. God loves you!

  146. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    They don't want your fucking acceptance!! They want the same equal rights that you have. no more no less. and what they do in the privacy of their bedroom does not effect anyone else no matter what you think. Thieves and murderers and rapists all have a direct impact on another person or group (if you steal from a home you affect that homeowner/family & when you steal from a store the prices go up which is a direct effect on the other paying consumers). Sex between two consenting people in private has no effect what so ever on any other person (unless that person keeps themself up all night imagining what they could possibly be doing and oh how wrong it is). If you want to condemn the ones that are having sex in public then fine, but guess what…THERE IS ALREADY A LAW ABOUT THAT THAT GOES FOR EVERYONE!! What if there was a law against any position other than man on top missionary? Sounds intrusive to you when it's your personal business and you know it should not affect anyone else and your rights taken away. And in this life and in this country we live in a democracy and one that is supposed to promote equal rights to all EVEN thieves and murderers and rapists. I mean they even get 3 meals a day and healthcare!! I don't even get all of that!!!

  147. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    The same set of passages that discuss tattoos is in the same book that most use for a reference to be against homosexuality. Leviticus 18:22 & 19:28. Now I'm sure you are going to say that the gay part is true and should stand in this time in history. But you can't say one is negotiable and the other not. They are all to be taken literally at all times or not.

  148. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    Cybthia: Yeah all the stuff you mentioned was still all written by men in the bible and "happened" thousands of years ago! Where is your smiting today and now? And why does your god kill innocent people and children? If he was out to punish only the sinners in sodom and & noahs ark than why the earth quakes and tsunamis and school bus accidents? why 9/11. Was he smiting all the people flying home that day and the people that just went to work and dropped off their kids in the day care below? What a loving merciful god you have there.

  149. William Simpson

    Good question Lauren I always ask myself that. I used to believe in God and the power of prayer until my life went down hill, lost my job and my truck and almost ended up homeless. Prayed to God daily hoping that I could find a job and better my life and so far only far worse things have happened! I'm suppose to trust in him when he didn't prevent bad stuff from happening to me?

  150. Herlinda Galindo

    If you are negative and a hater you side with the devil in his darkness
    Because God lives in the light of love…

  151. Derek Vincent

    "The Bible says this and the Bible says that"..to be quite honest, all you people don't have a f*ck*n' clue what the Bible's true meaning and interpretation is. None of us do and we won't until we get to meet the author. I've studied the Bible at my Bible study for years. And to this day, it is still the most challenging book in the history of human literature to interpret. I started Bible study when I came out of the closet because of people's ugly ways such as quite a few of these comments on this page. I had people getting me to believe that God no longer loved me and that my life was worth nothing. So, I decided to study this tool they were using to throw hate at me and the most important rule I've learned from this wonderful, wonderful class is that if what you're interpreting from the Bible doesn't make you a more loving, more caring, or in general a better person for all of society, you are interpreting it wrong.

  152. William Simpson

    What about the Qua'ran? What about the book of Mormon? What about bibles of other religions? So your religion is right and theirs is wrong? Also remember Greek mythology at one time was believed to be true by the Greeks, so don't be quick to say that a book written by man is the absolute truth. Remember written by men who claim God spoke to them. Basically Schizophrenics wrote the bible.

  153. William Simpson

    Why is it wrong? So non-Christians have to live by Christian values? We have to live our life the way you want us to? What about Atheist they don't get say in anything? This country was founded on religious freedom and now everyone wants to use religion to control others? Live your life for yourself and let others worry about their own asses.

  154. Steven Neice

    Jade Alyssa Arsenault There is a difference between loving a sinner and accepting and supporting the sin, as Christians we are told to be in the world but not of the world and we are told that supporting or encouraging sin is the same as committing the sin in God's eye's. I am not judging anyone but I would be remiss if I did not point out the consequences of sin to someone. I would think it rather hateful of me to be silent knowing that someone will be cast into the lake of fire if they do not repent of their sin.

  155. Steven Neice

    Actually they are as evidenced by the lawsuits filed against churches who refuse to marry homosexual couples or allow them to use their facilities for receptions. You should pay more attention to the news.

  156. BonnieLu Moran

    and your right, totally right, and once again , EVERYBODY does wrong and EVERYBODY falls short of the Kingdom of God but NO sin is greater than the other in Gods eyes, your right that you can beleive whatever you want, that is your right but i can beleive what I choose as well and Iknow ive done wrong and delt with it, and I beleive adultery in other words, spreading your legs to whomever before you get married isnt right as well. we can go all day with this but we both obviously have our own different takes on what we beleive and thats ok its our right.

  157. Steven Neice

    James Nichols, if your claiming to be a Christian then you should know that your brothers and sisters in Christ have the authority to rebuke you if you are sinning and to give you a chance to repent. Also, get over the BBQ thing in the new testament the dietary laws of the jews went out the window in Acts 10 with Peters vision.

  158. Diane Carner

    If you really really study the OT, you would see no where in the story does it mention homosexualty. Most people think its because of Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed for homosexualty. It was destroyed because of all different kinds of 'sins'. And if you read Genesis 19:30 on…you notice no one ever mentions the fact that Lot slept with his daughters and bore sons/grandsons. To many people in the 'religious realm' picks what suits their religioius belief. You also have to remember the Bible was written by man, translations of the original Sanskirt/Hebrew doesn't always have a word in English so they 'use what they felt 'best' fit it'. So if we are all created in God's imagine how can it be 'wrong'?

  159. Donald Cook

    To not point the sin out to them out of love and concern for their immortal soul is also a sin that we as Christians will be held acountable for. Even we Christians are told to confess our sins to one another and repent. Our laws were largely based on biblical principles in this country, which was proven through a congressional investigation years ago and through the founder's own writings, Tthe bible says that marriage should be between a man and a woman. It was for pro-creation. As far as equal rights to other things not related to marriage, they already have them. What they are asking for is for us to condone and create new rights related to their sexual preference and force us to teach our children that it is okay against our religious beliefs. This is what I take issue with.

  160. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    First off, the lawsuit you are talking about is going on in ENGLAND!! Not America which is where we live and vote and can be effected by. Not an island 1000+ miles across an ocean away. Second, that case is of a homosexual who is suing the church for not promoting him to Bishop. Third, in New York, where these lawsuits are supposedly happening based on Archbishop Dolan's claims, the equality laws were passed with clauses allowed churches to choose and no lawsuit would even be allowed into court, which is what helped marriage equality pass in the first part! Show me one actual court case where a church or other religious affiliation was sued for not allowing a gay marriage. In America!

  161. Veronica Taylor

    Sabrina.. Gods ways are not our ways. God may use you for someone else who has the same problem. Maybe you should get on your knee and tell God you are knocking at his door. You might be surprised what will happen next. We are all born into this world with sin. To know God is to know peace and love. Jesus died for you and me so we could experience his love and forgivenesse, not to mention our salvation and etenal life. I am praying for you as I write. God Bless you!!! YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL IN EVERY WAY GOD MADE YOU.

  162. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    First off, I am 100% for your right to religion even though I think it is all bullshit (the religion not the right). And in the same I have the right to no religion and the right to say I think yours is crap written by men thousands of years ago and is discriminatory. You on the other hand think that you are ok by telling me I am wrong and hateful and ignorant. Wow, seems a little one sided to me. I have no problem with anyone having religion in the privacy of their own home or place of worship, but as soon as you step out with the rest of us and tell us how we must live our lives and want to take away rights of others based on your religious beliefs when there are numerous other religions or lack there of, then yes I have a problem. Yet of course you can only believe that you are right and everyone else is wrong and stupid and not worthy of being called a good person simply b/c they disagree with you!!! I work in a predominantly Mormon organization and it is a non-profit charity and I help raise money that helps blind people. And before that I worked at Chick-fil-A, a Christian organization that is closed on Sundays b/c the CEO thinks his employees should be in church! None of my beliefs vs theirs were ever an issue and I don't do charity work now b/c a higher power told me to or to help ensure I get into a heaven that I don't believe even exists. Yet I don't hold it against my co-workers that do. And when my father passed away and my co-workers wanted to pray for him and me, I let them with no resistance or complaints. Yet I would bet you a million dollars that if I started an non-religious charity with rules stating that no mention of religion is allowed, I bet that you would not offer your assistance. Your small brain can't contemplate atheists doing good. And I don't "judge god". I can't judge something that does not exist. I judge people who kill in his name or make others feel like less than human b/c of god. And I can't hate people that I have never met and I do not know the merits of their person. I hate the people who come out first spewing their hate for me or others. I may have disdain for religious people but not hate. You on the other hand clearly are the opposite and have hate for those that do not love your god and agree with your religion whole heartily. You notice that I did not actually start any thread here condoning or praising anyone. I mostly responded to those that came out with hate towards homosexuals or others with differing religious views.

  163. Lauren Jaye Siegel

  164. Nancy Dees Solomon

    In the Book of Leviticus 18:22 it says "You must not have sexual relations with a man as you would a woman". It is considered an abomination or hateful sin." So how could anyone think God would be for gays or gay marriages. He doesn't hate a person for being gay…he still loves them but is saddened for their choices. We all have sinned & have to ask God for forgiveness because we are, after all, just human & therefor we are sinners. And yes there are things we do that are a sin but not all sins are an abomination….

  165. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    Fine whatever. Point your finger. You think they care? Maybe the children that get punished or mentally abused or kicked out care at the time, but hopefully they will grow up and realize that it can be ok and they can get out if need be. And you can confess your sins to one another all you want. But you can't force others to confess especially when they do not think they are sinning or even believe in that religion. Damn, I hope that one day the table is turned and the ones with their limited rights is you. Try raising your kids then, when others are telling them that just b/c of who their parents are that they are an abomination! Imagine trying to go to church with thousands of gays standing in your way and screaming at you that you are not worthy of love and your family should be rounded up and placed behind an electric fence and forced to starve. Don't think it could happen? Well guess what, that already happened once only 60 years ago, and there are people today that want it to happen again but to a different group. Do you teach you children that the Holocaust was justified b/c Hitler felt he was doing god's work? The Nazis depicted Jews as devils and took away their rights. Slowly, but they did it with much success. And yet most people in this country still think that we came to the rescue and the war would have never ended w/o America. Yet it had been going on for years to the Americans knowledge and if it hadn't been for Japan, we would have let it go on. Then to add insult to injury, we corralled all the Japanese-American citizens and did the same to them! Same story different group.

  166. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    You are not supposed to condone homosexuality or difference of religion but we are supposed to condone you?! All I have left to say is just wait. The gap is growing larger with every generation and someday we will out number you and the majority will rule.

  167. James Johnson

    Leviticus also says its okay to beat a slave with a rod really hard, as long as they don't die right away. (also quoted in Exodus 21:20-21)

    Leviticus also says its okay to marry your half sister and other close relatives
    Leviticus also says…. Any person who curseth his father or mother must be killed
    Leviticus also says People who have flat noses, or are blind or lame, cannot go to an altar of God

    Leviticus also says…should I go on? because I promise you it gets worse.

    Wow. I love how with one persons version all the previous rules are nullified. In Mormonism, polygamy are newly justified and old rules changed and some followed and some didn't yet I'm sure you will disagree with Mormons, right? You keep changing the rules to justify your own ambitions. Ok, so I will start a new branch of Christianity that states homosexuality is not a sin based on my interpretation of the bible. Yet I'm sure the church won't allow it. So hypocritical.

    Sorry to hear that. I was unemployed for a whole year and finally got a job that was a huge step down ($38K down to $24K) but it was a job and at a non-profit organization so I felt good about it at the time. One month after my new job started, my father got sick from out of no where and died a month and 1/2 later (death is still listed as unknown but my family thinks it was food poisoning) and then I had to watch my mother fall apart and my siblings become greedy monsters. Luckily I was at a charity that did not hold it against me for taking weeks off one month into my employment and I am still here today 3 years later with never getting a raise but happy with the work I do, even though most of my co-workers are devoutly religious (Mormon) and I have to roll my eyes every once and a while but I mostly keep my thoughts to myself. But I think I am a good person. Don't commit any crime. Go to work and take care of my dog and hang out w/ my friends. I lead a quiet life. Yet people want to tell me I'm not a good person only b/c I don't believe in a god!?! It pushes me even further away since I am not judged by my merits but by my beliefs or lack there of.

  171. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    Apparently, according to most of the other posters, Leviticus is null and void since it was the old Testament. And if you follow the Old Testament than you should not believe that Jesus was the Messiah. So which one is it?

  172. Pamela Coley Schrock

    The only news articles I could find about this were where private companies were being sued. There were articles about how a law legalizing gay marriage would open the flood gates for churches to be sued, but none that actually stated a case. Get your facts straight. If however, a homosexual couple did sue a church to recognize their union, then shame on them.. Not the entire gay community.

  173. Vickie Traver

    James Nichols you don't know me my husband of 30 years is the only man I have had sex with; and I don't believe in SEX before marriage; so that is not a true statement; I have been faithful to my husband too; and to assume that all straights are unfaithful is not true and their are plenty of straight married couples that would love to adopt those babies; do not justify your actions because you adopt babies; you do not get into heaven by your good works! And are you Jewish? Stop quoting Leviticus please I am not the Chosen people for which those laws were written for and they do not apply to me! But I do think it is important to know what God has said; and the 10 Commandments are a great moral compass for us all;and all sin is the same in God's eyes; I am a Follower of Christ and I follow His words and I go by the New Testament; which is what I as a Gentile is suppose to do; for Christ came for the forgiveness of all our sins; Jew and Gentile; do not justify a child having sex to justify your sin; sin is sin; both are wrong and both can be forgiven! Also you can keep your opinion to yourself; I think it asked for our opinion your just upset because mine is different from yours; I so love how you say you are doing your part like these children are some unwanted shameful things really! Do you hear yourself; the sin is the fact; not the baby; and all babies are a blessing; and please do not do us any favors with a statement like that! You should adopt a child out of love; nothing more; and so you are saying if you were allow to marry NOT ONE GAY PERSON WOULD HAVE SEX OUT OF WEDLOCK! You make it sound like you gays are perfect and us straight people are the only ones that sin; again listen to yourself! I said I sin; I am against all sins; mine included; but I have not cheated, had sex before marriage; given a child away; and I am not Jewish so I do not live by the Jewish Law; I live by the Law of Jesus Christ my Savior! You are right God created everyone but 1st Adam and Eve and from them everyone else came; and with that saying we are all born to SIN; it is up to all of us to stop doing it and to know what sin is! Jesus did not say go from this place and sin some more! I am not perfect I sin! I know this; and guess what I love you even though I do not know you, and even though you insulted me with your words! I did not say anything but that I think it is a sin! Period!

  174. Nancy Dees Solomon

    Jesus IS the Messiah! Hands down, but that has nothing to do with the Old Testament being null & void. You seem to know what you want to know about the Bible, but the Bible says no one knows the Bible more than a non-believer. Everyone interprets the scriptures in their way ut it still means the same. I have some re-reading to do but I'll be back…..

  175. James Johnson

    Lauren you are correct, the Apostle Paul speaks about how followers of Jesus Chris shouldn't follow the "old law" which specifically refers to the old testament. Funny enough followers tend to listen to Paul in a sense but keep bringing up the gay relationships rule. It is purely selective reasoning based on outward hate for homosexuals.

  176. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    Veronica – I just threw up in my mouth a little. First you tell Sabrina that maybe god wants all hermaphrodites together!?!!? Ugh. I am so flabbergasted there aren't even words to respond. Next, and trust me on this, there are plenty more people in the world that do not believe in your god and they know peace and love!! Maybe you can't obtain it on your own but that doesn't mean that others can't.

  177. James Johnson

    Lauren Jaye Siegel You are exactly on point. Not much I need to add. The sad part really is the outward hate people turn the bible into. I myself am a Christian and can't believe how awful it has become. Jesus kept company with a prostitute, I am pretty sure he wasn't running around punching gay people in the face and cursing them. But unlike the hateful comments I am not personally going to claim to have a relationship with god. I mean he isn't joining me for cocktails on the weekend, but that seems to be the stance taken too much of the time. The "Self Importance" that people feel that god is talking to them is rather sickening.

    Carrie didn't say she was "for it"…she said she is accepting of everybody. By the way, so is God. Personally, I don't care if two trees want to marry, as long as they don't bring me into it.

  180. Michael A. Campbell

    I will quote the above, " So why do people have to assume I hate gays just because I don't support homosexuality. THEY CAN DO WHAT THEY WANT but I am NOT going to be held ACCOUNTABLE by God for PROMOTING sin in the earth." I NEVER SAiD IT WAS NOT THIER RIGHT! I really don't care what they do, Jesus prophesied an increase in and sinfulness in the earth.(In Matthew 24) HE ALREADY SAID IT WAS GONNA HAPPEN. SO my point was that Jesus doesn't support it, therefore anyone that ACTUALLY is a Christian CANNOT support sin. God gave everyone the CHOICE of His will or their own will. Christ said if you don't believe the words of Moses than how can you believe me? (John5:41-47) By the words of Moses, he was talking about the Torah. EVERYTHING JESUS SAID HE QUOTED FROM SOMEWHERE IN THE BIBLE, whether it be from the Torah (law of Moses) the Nevi'im (prophets), or the Ketuvim(writings or the Kings & patriarchs). So Jesus BELIEVED the bible therefore he believed it to be sin, but he still died for them. He believes all men through His power can be free them from it.

    As for your quote "I'm sure you are just the most pious man there ever could be and can point the finger at others while not having a finger pointed back in return" I am not perfect but Jesus made a distinction between sinners and saints. Sinners don't care about God's word, because of Adams sin they are still of the FLESH (spiritually DEAD), they CANT help it. However, those who are BORN AGAIN in Christ who has RAISES the dead and have NEW BORN SPIRIT. Thus making a them a new creature (2 Cor 5:17), so when a Christian sins it is like a car ACCIDENT, we DONT plan on it, it just happens and we repent because Christ is our insurance. I don't POINT THE FINGER at people who are still spiritually dead, That is SATAN'S job, he is the ACCUSER. How will THAT help them STOP sinning? IT WONT, only by being born again through Christ can they be free of it. The Church is supposed to be a spiritual hospital, WHAT HOSPITAL DO YOU KNOW TELLS THE SICK TO STAY AWAY?
    Matthew10:10 Later, Matthew invited Jesus and his disciples to his home as dinner guests, along with many tax collectors and other disreputable sinners. 11 But when the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, “WHY DOES YOUR TEACHER EAT WITH SUCH SCUM?”12 When Jesus heard this, he said, “HEALTHY PEOPLE DON’T NEED A DOCTOR—SICK PEOPLE DO.” 13 Then he added, “Now go and learn the meaning of this Scripture: ‘I WANT YOU TO SHOW MERCY, NOT OFFER SACRIFICES.’ For I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners.”
    How can Christ save sinners if they don't know what they are doing is sin? So Jesus told Christians to TEACH ALL NATIONS Mat 28:18-20, so Satan cannot deceive them in ignorance, and there CHOICE for eternity will be an INFORMED one. That is not JUDGING, nor CONDEMNING, but INFORMING so that will NOT have an excuse before God and say "I didn't have fair chance because I didn't know."

  181. Katie Pinkston

    God tells you in the Bible where the words come from-I personally do not care what you believe is right or wrong-I know the Baptist and the evangelical beliefs and that's is simple. You say a man wrote the Bible -maybe you should research who did write the Bible. and-Lauren-the reason I said King James version is because that's all some will read.And no I am not "dum" I have my beliefs and my GOD-no one said everyone has to believe the same way. I simply said YOU do not have the right to judge BUT you must discern what is actually God's word and not your own. Believe me-EACH and EVERY one of us will go before GOD and be judged.

  182. Linda Harrison

    I think the bible has been used as a weapon of hate long enough. Since so many books of the bible were banned over the centuries and rewritten by evil doers …I have a hard time taking it literally anymore. So go on and throw that stone because God is coming back and she is pissed!

  186. Linda Harrison

    Carrie you just impressed me and I am proud of her for having the guts to say what she believes. I agree with her whole heartedly! Go Carrie!

  187. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    WOW!!! When Christians sin it is just an accident (No premeditation on adultery I guess – opps my penis just fell into my mistresses vagina!) and everyone else is just screwed. LMFAO. And even with regular insurance companies there are penalties for having to use them. You have an accident and your rates go up. Have a lot of accidents and you get dropped as a client. LMFAO. "HEALTHY PEOPLE DON’T NEED A DOCTOR—SICK PEOPLE DO" So why do people go for yearly check ups and learn about preventative health? We do we immunize our kids and why do we get flu shots? Lets get rid of all that and only go to the doctor after you are sick. LMFAO!! So what did Jesus say to do after you have "informed" the sinners and they don't care to follow you? Does he say to then stand and degrade them? And agree with not allowing them equal rights? We already heard your "teachings" loud and clear and we say we don't agree. LMFAO. Next, if god made man and wanted all to have a chance to be reborn, what about all the people during the time of Jesus that never had a chance because of geographical reasons. What about all the Asian countries or the Americas? Christianity did not spread there until over 1000 years after Jesus!? Yet they all have very different religions and gods. How come your almighty god did not smite them or convert them then? Why did he not allow all the generations that came and went before the spread of Christianity the be reborn and saved? Sounds a little crazy to me. There has been more people throughout the whole history of man that never practiced Christianity or even knew of Jesus before they had a chance to be saved!!! I swear. Your religion is the most conceited, self righteous of them all!! LMFAO

  191. Rita Buterbaugh

    The Bible has something to say about this topic. I encourage you to read Romans 1:22-32. I hope it will bring some enlightenment to those that are not sure about homosexuality. God loves us all, but hates our sin. That's why He sent His only begotten son to die for us so we can be ransomed from sin. There is forgiveness available for sinners if we humble ourselves to God and ask forgiveness and accept Christ as the only Savior. Christ is the only way to the Father. There is no other way.

  192. Dee Daclan

    To David Croyle. I don't believe the word HATE is in God's vocabulary.

  193. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    A book written by men says god says e wrote it but again, this was written by men! It is a paradox. "God inspired man to write the bible for him. So men wrote the bible but it was transcribed so they didn't write the bible. Yet there are opposing views and opinions. Yet they didn't actually write it because god did, yet he did it through man." on and on and oh my head is spinning! If someone came out today and said god is speaking through me then you would say he is crazy and ask for proof (similar of the story of Moses and the Pharaoh, where god had to prove himself). first off, if he is all mighty and can supposedly carve words into stone why did he not do that with the bible? why transcribe it, while creating doubt.

    What I don't understand is that everyone says their religion is the correct one and that there can only be one that is correct. Yet, how do you know you are right and everyone else is wrong? They are going to stand by those same convictions, which is fine, and it is ultimately a waiting game to see who was right. The issue I have is when someone forces their beliefs on others and affects other people live based on their religion. Monks feel that they should take a vow of silence to become closer to their god. If only more religions were like that!!! ; P

  194. William Simpson

    Who is to say that the men who wrote the Bible didn't make it up? Maybe the had psychological problems? Also isn't funny how other religions have more than one God and yours only has one? Yet you all sit and say all other religions are wrong and yours is right. This is what every Christian thinks, I am right because I am a Christian and everybody else is wrong. Also research religion and how they all started and you'd be surprised how much Kings have changed things. Look up Martin Luther, he started the protestant church because he didn't like that the church was selling indulgences and was banned and was an out law, until the King of France I do believe said come here and make your own religion and allow divorces and I'll protect you. The king had many wives and they all died in mysterious ways, because the king would have them killed because he couldn't divorce them and Martin Luther said ok we will make divorces ok just because you want them too.

And I remind you Mr. Nichols, Homosexuality is Pagan in origin, so pluck the mote out from your own eye first Mr. C.E.D.! And James, your diatribe tangent doesn't even reflect David's comment! You and Carrie are also bearing false-witness against God (and denying Jesus thrice) by saying that God created Homo's! Also James, there's no such thing as a "homophobe" – the correct term is "Anti-homosexual"! Oh, and another thing James, Dante's inferno was a painting; there's no such thing as "eternal damnation" only eternal death in the "Lake of fire"! By-the-way, you're fired as C.E.D. of Clayton House, whatever that is! Mr. Croyle has the Constitutional right to express his "opinin".

One last thing, the merciful future technology of "Cybernetic Behaviorial Modification" will erase your Homo' Psyche and replace it with the more preferrable "Heterosexual Psyche"! Wouldn't you rather be Heterosexual?

    That's how religious people are, if you don't believe in what they believe in then you're a horrible person. I have read many books about religion and seen many many shows on Christianity and they all prove that religion is a joke. Did you know Catholic churches used to have their own brothels? Kings for thousands and thousands of years have changed the Bible to suit them. Just today my friends sister passed away due to injuries from a car accident and everyone prayed for her and God didn't save her, what kind of God would let innocent people die and not answer the prayers of people begging to save their loved one? Religion is bullshit and everyone claims science can't prove it's not wrong, well science hasn't tried either. Stephen Hawkings though has proved that we don't need a god to exist. Science explains everything very well where as religion doesn't. Religion is so far fetched it's not even funny.

You should read my reply to James Nichols just above. By-the-way, you're violating God's admonition to respect your elders, which Susan is! Would you talk that way to your Grandmother if she were Susan?! And as a matter-of-biblical fact, Ancient Homosexuals worshipped the Pagan's god, Satan – not the true God of the bible! By-the-way, Lauren, when you read the reply I left to James Nichols above take particular note of my last 2 sentences. I'm sure you'll get a kick out of them.

    Well, not everybody on the planet believes that. There are numerous other religions and there are lack of religion. You totally have the right to believe what you want and say your beliefs, but when you start harming others (physically, emotionally, and mentally) then we have a problem. And voting against any type of equal rights, no mater the subject, is abhorrent and should be considered sinful.

    Do you celebrate Christmas? Christmas is a pagan tradition, so be careful to point out who is doing wrong when you have lack of knowledge of many things. You Christians are just upset that atheist know more about the Bible than you do.

  204. Donald Cook

    Only until he returns Lauren, and then there won't be any argument. Besides, most mainline religions agree with the morals found in the Bible. Check your history, for whenever mankind tried to do things his own way, society crumbled and tyranny soon followed. Alexis de Tocqueville in the early 1800s, when commenting on America's greatness said that America is great because she is good, and when she ceases to be good, she will cease to be great. This is what happened to the great Roman empire, as well as many others in the past, and those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it.

  205. Noreen Burkett

    It's obvious that you all have different views on this subject. Why isn't Carrie Underwood allowed to have hers? We just need to all get along. It's called tolerance and accepance. Seriously, folks, don't we have more important issues to deal with? For instance, all the murderers, pedophiles, and junkies, as well as people abusing their children… and what about Obamacare, and raising the retirement age because there isn't enough money to allow people to retire? Let's move on…

  206. Kelly Crews Satterwhite

    Sorry Michael that you think that, but you will find out if you do not change that you have bought a bill of goods that has left you eternally short changed. That is sad and I pray your heart will change. This is not the Catholic church's arrogance sir, this is what God says! My God is the only true living God. The only way to heaven is through Jesus Christ and His shed blood. When others say there are many ways it is just making them feel good about not believing and the fact that they will find themselves eternally damned with satan and his fallen angels and those like you who he is able to fool. I will pray that God will open your heart and you will hear and answer that call to come. I pray it is not too late for you and that your heart is now hardened against God. I am not Catholic I am a believer in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As with Carrie Underwood, sir it does not matter what you choose to believe on ways to get to heaven, unless you see and choose to follow Christ you will not be there and that would be sad.

    James Nichols _I agree with you and alot of ignorant people confuse gays with pedophiles. This is so not accurate. My late brother who was a wonderful gay man was one of the few people I trusted with my children and I know and am friends with gay couples who simply want the same rights as any other couple and have raised wonderful kids. As humans and americans they should have these rights without all this debate. Our constitution says that we are all created equal( after they ironed out the slave and woman rights) so this should not be up for argument.

    If you believe the bible hasn't been tampered with that's fine.

    And that is your opinion. You can step down from your soap box now because your comments would certainly cause me to fall if I needed spiritual help and that is the biggest sin of all. Please read that book you are so fond of as I have repeatedly. If you cause someone to doubt or stumble by your hateful words or actions, your bible says you will be judged harshly.

    Wow the hipocracy is nausiating. I hope you, Donald do not feel as qualified as God to judge or in any way cause someone pain by your B.S. That does qualify as sin. As for the history you are citing, I have heard this crap till I want to scream. On one hand the book of Revelations says no one knows the day or hour but the right wing nuts claim they do and work themselves and every gullible idiot into a frenzy. Please spare us all the crap! I am not ever going to be a woman who believes God loves men more and I should bow my head and walk behind. If my children were BORN gay I would be just as proud as I am now. They happen to be straight but I have witnessed the damage of parents and family who reject their kids because they are gay. God made them and he doesnt make mistakes so if they are gay ….he made them that way so get over it.

    How in the hell did Santa rate a mention in this discussion?!! You now he's not real…..Right??? That is too funny Gino. BWAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!! thanks for lifting the mood a little! ;))

  215. Linda Harrison

    So true…another example of spewing out B.S. by someone who has been brainwashed!

  216. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    Supposedly god gave man free will. Why punish someone for using the gift you gave them? If he wanted us all the be slaves to him, then take away free will.

  217. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    According to your book, to be forgiven you have to repent and claim that you knew what you were doing was wrong and that you are sorry for it. IF you had had children out of wedlock would you repent and say I wish I hadn't had them b/c it was wrong. In my personal opinion, if my mother said even in repentance that if she could do it again, she would not have had me out of wedlock then it would hurt me, the child. Also, what do you say to girls that are raped and get pregnant? Are they supposed to say they were sinful for getting raped?!

  218. Donald Cook

    Not sure where you are getting the hypocrisy part Linda as I pointed out that sin is sin, and yes I sin every day and have to ask for forgiveness and do my best to not sin again. The bible says there are none righteous, no not one. That is why Christ came. He was the final sacrifice for the sins of man (or woman) if we accept him as such. That doesn't mean we will not stumble from time to time, but that we can approach God in prayer because of Christ's sacrifice to ask forgiveness. Only he knows if you truly mean it. Christians are not perfect, just forgiven. As for the book of Revelation, you are correct in saying that no man shall know the day or the hour that he will come, but it also goes on to say that we WILL know when it is close, even at the door. It also goes on to warn people in the last days about being scoffers about his coming and saying that they have been saying this for years. I am not being judgmental as it is not my place to judge. I am only trying to point out what scripture says. If I do, then I have done my part. What you or anyone else does with it is your responsibility, for a person is ultimately responsible to God for their own choices. As far as my comment about history and you saying that you have heard this “crap” before…have you bothered to check it out or are you just regurgitating what the liberal circles are spewing? I am not asking that you take my word for anything, but don’t you owe it to yourself to check it out? Otherwise, I guess we will just have to agree to disagree. Take care!

  219. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    Wow what a concept. Most religions have the same morals. Don't kill, steal, rape or in other words: do unto others as you would have done unto you. Because before that, theft and murder was rampant and you couldn't leave your home, unlike today b/c we have religion and morals, right? How come in America where we are one of the most religious countries, we have the most violence against each other? Yeah we are great all right. And one factor to the fall of the Roman Empire was due to Christianity among other things. You realize it fell over 400 years after Jesus.

  220. Joyce Parmer

    the word of God is true wheter you believe it are not we re all going to stand before God on the day of jugdement &give account for everthing we ve Done &said in this life So it would be in our Best interest too obey God His word is what we re suppose too live By Sooooo we should live too hear Jesus say Will done my good & faithful servant so we can enter into the Joy of the Lord & not into the burning Lake of Fire which will be forever &forever& carrie underwood that goes for you 2 we can't serve God & the devil soooooo choice who you will serve.

  221. Gino Feriante

    Linda, what do you mean Santa isn't real? I don't normally do this, especially online, but listen, Santa LOVES you! Santa doesn't want to bring you rocks and potatoes on christmas morning. Or coal, either. Please, believe it when I say that. I can feel it in my heart that I am right.

  222. William Simpson

    We can do like they said in the Bible, if you rape a woman you have to marry her. Laws should not be made based on religion, especially in a country where we are free to choose what religion we want or to not have a religion at all. Just because you think it's wrong doesn't mean everybody else has to. Why should someone else not be happy just to make you happy? What makes your opinions so much greater that everyone else is wrong? You Christians never seize to amaze me. Lauren I think we are wasting our breath, these people think they're superior to everybody else and they can do no wrong.

  223. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    Pretty much. Did you see the one response I got that stated "so when a Christian sins it is like a car ACCIDENT, we DONT plan on it, it just happens and we repent because Christ is our insurance." It just keeps getting crazier and crazier!! LOL

  224. William Simpson

    Wow that is the most idiotic thing I've ever heard lol. I feel sorry for these people they keep believing in something that doesn't exist.

  225. Ginger DeVenny Roberts

    It doesn't matter what I think, you think, or anyone else thinks the truth is. It still doesn't dismiss the fact that Jesus is whom He said He is………………we will ALL stand before the Lord one day and give an account of our lives, and those that don't know him WILL confess that Jesus is Lord, but then it will be too late for salvation. Me………………..I am far from perfect, but I am forgiven and thats the difference between a non-believer and a believer!!! We ain't perfect by no means and never will be. I don't know you guys, but I will say a prayer for you in hopes that you will come to know Jesus before it to late. Hope ya have a wonderful evening!!!! :)

  226. William Simpson

    Pray all you want because Jesus wasn't the son of God he was just a guy going around claiming to be the son of God. If someone were to say they were the son of God today they would be put in a nut house. So it's ok that Jesus claimed to be the son of God, but people now a days can't? Also what about Greek mythology? The Greeks believed that there was more than one god, so other religions say no thats wrong this is how it really is. So what makes you think the Bible isn't just an elaborate story like Greek mythology? Also scientific evidence has shown we don't need a God to exist and I'm sorry science makes way more sense and doesn't contradict itself like the Bible does.

  227. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    Ginger DeVenny Roberts I love how you start off saying it doesn't matter what anybody thinks. But I am the correct one. Man I wish you would have stopped at the first sentence.

    "Religion is dangerous because it allows human beings who don't have all the answers to think that they do. Most people would think it's wonderful when someone says, "I'm willing, Lord! I'll do whatever you want me to do!" Except that since there are no gods actually talking to us, that void is filled in by people with their own corruptions and limitations and agendas. And anyone who tells you they know, they just know what happens when you die, I promise you, you don't. How can I be so sure? Because I don't know, and you do not possess mental powers that I do not. The only appropriate attitude for man to have about the big questions is not the arrogant certitude that is the hallmark of religion, but doubt. Doubt is humble, and that's what man needs to be, considering that human history is just a litany of getting shit dead wrong."

    ROTFL!! That was good David Don. First off, why does it matter what my sexual orientation is? Would it change the meanings of my posts? I would have the same beliefs if I were gay or straight, but for fun I will let you sit and make your own assumptions.

    Next, the elder thing…my best friend is 2 weeks older than me. Does that mean I have to respect her yet she doesn't have to respect me? And how did I disrespect Susan. By not agreeing with her? I did not insult her person or the way she looks or anything. I just provided my differing opinion. I live by the rule of I'll respect you if you respect me. And if we all respected our elders, we would be in big f-ing trouble. Hitler was an elder and alot of people respected him and followed him and look what happened. Luckily there were alot of young men who did not agree and fought against Hitler and his army. And since I am atheist I don't really care what your bible tells me on any subject.

    Now the Pagan thing. LMFAO. First, you are obviously happily spoon feed. Paganism as referred to the people during the time of Jesus were mostly Greco-Roman polytheists (which also includes Hinduism, Buddhism, Native American Religions, ect) since they were the one in the geographical region and know b/c obviously the disciples did not know what was going on in Asia and North/South America. And Pagans were generally people who just didn't agree with monotheism. Remember in middle school when you learned about the Greek gods like Zeus and Athena. That's what these people were praying to. But for some reason, you and other Christians turn any opposing religion (or lack thereof) into Satanism! "Now about spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be ignorant. You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols." (1 Corinthians 12:1-2). Pagans were idolaters and non-conformists, not satanists! Also, Satan is a Judeo-Christian entity. How can pagans worship an entity the do not know? If you want to say all homosexuals were devil worshipers than that is a different story, but a stupid one. So lets move onto that.

    Paganism was around before Jesus, after Jesus and is still practiced today. If all homosexuals were satanists then how did they reproduce to still be here today? Homosexuals did not just spring out of nowhere after god had a war with his angles and cast the bad ones down from heaven. There is evidence of homosexuality throughout history including ancient Romans, such as Alexander the Great (356 B.C.), and homosexuals are born from straight Christian homes today (or do you think all the homosexuals out today were from Satanist homes in which case we should have a large Satanic population which we don't)

    "Faith means making a virtue out of not thinking. It's nothing to brag about. And those who preach faith, and enable and elevate it are intellectual slaveholders, keeping mankind in a bondage to fantasy and nonsense that has spawned and justified so much lunacy and destruction. Religion is dangerous because it allows human beings who don't have all the answers to think that they do. Most people would think it's wonderful when someone says, "I'm willing, Lord!

  233. Alyson Roberts

    William Simpson Jesus IS the Son of God, regardless what you or anybody else thinks. He wasnt just saying he was; if you would read the Bible you would know that. Jesus performed many miracles, like raising people from the dead, turning water into wine, and so many other things as well. He is the only Person who could ever do those things and I aint afraid to say that He is my Savior!! But I think we all know by now who believes what on this link,so im finished talking about it. K bye.

  234. William Simpson

    I have read the Bible and read about the history of the Bible. The Bible does nothing but contradict itself over 100 times. So you're going to sit here and say that people who don't even have anywhere near the intelligence of today wrote a book and you're going to believe it? You're talking a book written by men who claim God told them to write it, don't you see the issue? I could go and write a book and claim God spoke to me when he really didn't. Religion was just a way to explain things before science came around. I have thousands of books on a shelf including the Qua'ran, the Book of Mormon 3 different versions of the Bible and they're not exactly the same. Also the Bible was changed over 100 times by kings. Hence the King James Bible. Also zombies don't exist and Jesus was a zombie. You can't say that he wasn't he died and came back to life.

  235. William Simpson

    Also why does the Torah say Jesus was a messiah and not the son of God? Also Judaism has proved that Jesus was a false messiah. Also in other forms of Christianity Jesus is God, so explain why all these different religions say different things. What about Buddhism, are you saying their religion is wrong and yours is right?

  236. Alyson Roberts

    Oh my word,really? Jesus is no zombie.He is a human being and God raised him from the dead. Obviously your the one who dont get it. Gods people wrote the Bible over 1000 years ago..so you cant say it was just writen. And of course Mormon crap aint gonna be the same as the Bible because it aint! Mormoms believe totally different than we Christians do. There so called "Bible" really aint one,but sadly they dont know that. Mormons,as well as Jehovah witnesses,think that they can get into Heaven by "earning their way there and by doing good works. No. You only get into Heaven by trusting the Lord as your Savior and asking Him to come into your life and forgive you of your sins. There is no other way.

  237. William Simpson

    So you're saying your religion is right and theirs is wrong? Who is to say that theirs is right and yours is wrong? See that's the thing about you Christians you're always right and everybody else is always wrong. Christianity about saying I'm better than you believe I believe in God. Also I like how you Christians say Judaism is wrong when Jesus himself was a Jew. If his religion is wrong and your religion is based on him then your religion must be wrong? Yes Jesus died and then came back to life right? Then he's a zombie. Also why doesn't God bring anyone now a days back to life? Explain to me why your religion is right and all others are wrong.

  238. Alyson Roberts

    William, my faith in Jesus is right because how many other faiths out there have a risen Savior?……………..none! In the New Testament if Jesus was not who He said He was and arose from the dead to save man kind (if they accept Him as their Lord) then, I honestly don't think the other desciples would have risk being stoned and brutally killed for something that was make believe. At least I wouldn't! Jesus gave us the ability to make up our own minds on what we believe and He will not force Himself upon anyone, but in the end those who don't believe and ask for his forgiveness will be cast into a lake of fire. So honestly it is your choice on what you choose to believe. Just remember, Jesus will forgive you if you ask him, but when you step out into eternity then it will be everlastingly too late. It makes me sad to read you don't believe in Jesus. I will keep you in my prayers, but I am through trying to convince you. All anyone has to do is simply look around and you can see that all of this just did not happen………there is a creator and His name is Jesus the Only Son of God. Even the human body is sooooo complex that there is NO way we just happened on our own. I could go on and on all night with examples, but its getting late. Have a wonderful life William and I hope to see ya in Heaven. I hope I have helped to plant a seed in your heart that will someday sprout into a saved man of God. Good bye!!!! :)

  239. Donald Cook

    This country, like any other has its problems, but things have gotten considerably worse under the humanistic advances in this country and I fear darker days are yet to come. Nations cannot be punished in the next life, so they must be punished in this one. If we continue to turn our back on the Christian principles that founded this country, I fear we are destined for a rude awakening. In case you haven’t noticed, Christians have been pretty much shut out of the public arena in this country to the point of almost being second class citizens! Anything seems to go unless it has the word Christian or Christianity attached to it. People like to site the Constitution in saying that we must have” separation of church and state” when it fact that phrase is nowhere to be found in the Constitution! The quote was taken out of context from a letter to the Danbury Baptists by Thomas Jefferson, because they had heard a rumor that they were getting ready to make the Congregationalist denomination the National church. He reassured them that this was not the case and that there was a wall of separation preventing them from preferring one denomination over another, but that the Christian principles would always remain in our system of government. We have gotten away from this in the last half century and are starting to see the results. As for the Roman Empire falling… yes I realize they fell after Jesus but it was because of the level of Godlessness and debauchery that they came to that society crumbled. Christians just refused to submit when it came to disobeying their God. Forgive me if I am picking up on this wrongly, but it sounds as if you have some religious background, yet it sounds as if you had a bad experience along the way somewhere. If this is so, I am sorry for that and will keep you in my prayers. I also apologize if I sound offensive as this is not my intension. Take care.

  240. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    Ok. The sky is green. Don't go look for yourself. Just trust me. Oh and by the way, I haven't actually seen the sky, it just came to me. The sky is green. Sounds crazy. I just don't understand how people can trust what they have no proof of. We have proof of evolution. The changing of skeletons over time that we can go a see and touch. And we learned over time the world was round and you can go around it in a boat. A thousand years ago, people were 100% positive that was not true and that if you reached the horizon, you would just fall off into nothingness and they lived their lives in fear of that. Until a few said how can you be afraid of something you have never tested to be untrue? And now we have a global economy. And if you believe that Jesus gave us the freewill to make up our own minds then why can't you be content with your own faith and trust in the invisible and leave the others that choose not to alone?!

  241. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    I like this post. Thank you. That is all I am asking for. I don't have any problem with you or anyone having religion or faith so long as it is not forced onto others. But I must add, that as you said a majority of Christians are closed minded and judgmental, I think it makes it harder for them to be inviting to others that may consider conversion, but after seeing it they change their minds. If their goal is to "save" others from the fire of hell (and know that I was rolling my eyes while typing that) then maybe that should not be pushing people away…?

    You are sooo creepy…Just Saying! Peace be with you and bless your heart…LOL

  244. Linda Harrison

    I have read the bible many times and studied and researched all the changes and hatchet jobs that have been done…I can't respect something that is changed every time some man doesn't agree with it.

  245. Linda Harrison

    Donald I am 52 and grew up in church and am still a Christian. What I can no longer condone is the blasphemy and hate that is practiced in organized religion. Church won't get you into heaven and being a stumbling block to others is a one way ticket to hell if you believe in it. My argument is that the bible has been edited and changed so many times it is now a work of mishmash fiction that hates women, gays ,….etc so how is that close to what Jesus was trying to teach? Pointing out scripture in a book that is so messed up is being judgemental and misleading.

  246. Linda Harrison

    Yes we do disagree Mr Cook. You take care also and bless your heart…

  247. Herlinda Galindo

    Lol…. I'm creepy? You can call me whatever you want… And then bless me, and I'm the strange one, okay… Lmao

  248. Marisol Ramirez

    For starters marriage should not be about religion… IT IS ABOUT LOVE; its called separation of church and state… The bible thought me to love and respect all others. That includes all of men kind, regardless of religious affiliation, gender, race, or sexual orientation. So I say support others and their love, and if YOU believe it's wrong, then leave it up to God.

  249. Linda Harrison

    lol. yep…but at least i don't judge people and tell them they are on the side of darkness. that is arrogant and wrong. just my hmble opinion and you have to be southern to understand that bless your heart is not a good thing.

  250. Linda Harrison

    This whole thing makes me hope that the thumpers can get their undies out of a knot! :))

    It's ok I'm going to write my own bible and claim God speaks to me, and you can't say I'm lying because that's what the writers of the Bible did.

Twisted? If that is so , I am in good company! Bless you anyway and I apologize for the creepy remark. That was tacky and not who I am.

You talk a lot about a God you don't believe in, but need I remind you that Homosexuality has Pagan roots and those Ancient Homosexuals worshipped the one Pagan "god" which all Pagans worshipped – Satan, not the one true God of the bible! "Dante's Inferno" was a painting, there's no such thing as 'eternal damnation' nor pergatory, and the bible doesn't teach that, only Catholic doctrine does – but the bible does specify an eternal death in the "Lake of Fire" in Revelation! Even though you don't believe in him, you're still "bearing false witness against thy neighbor", God, based on falacies that God don't endorse nor supports – he says that homosexuality is an abomination to him! By-the-way, since you don't believe in God, you shouldn't be bearing false witness against him!
    By-the-way, I don't own a personal phone, and I haven't seen anything from you in my facebook page, but if you wish I can invite you to send an Email to me at:
    david.don2291@yahoo.com

    Don't send an obscure handle to me, instead of your registered "Jade Alyssa Arsenault" user name, because I won't recognize an obscure handle and I will delete it.

    "Carrie Underwood Supports Gay Marriage, Says God Probably Does Too" found in the "Inquisitr".

    I'm making a pasted copy of my reply to a sub-reply to another's post for my internet Email inbox so that I don't have to waste my time looking for it!

  258. David Don

    Well, how about that, I finally found your Facebook Timeline Lauren! Now then, let me get right to the grist! First off you spelled my last name wrong, you Anti-Semetic bore! And as long-winded as you are, even for an Atheist, not only are you quite easy, but you're quite boring as well…yawn!…like where did you get your PhDs' from, Bill Mahar?

  259. David Don

  260. David Don

    Continued – I pasted this from your timeline and you sound like a hypocrite: "Why do people have to play their music soooo loud!?! not trying to be the grumpy old lady on the block, and I think it's ok to play music outside when having a bbq. but it shouldn't be so laoud that people 6 houses down can hear it! Not every1 likes your damn music, a$$hole! If you wanna play it that loud, move somewhere where you don't have neighbors on all sides of you!!"

  261. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    First off moron, if you are so Jewish, You should know Siegel is a German-Jewish name and I am 100% Jewish on all sides and went to Hebrew School and Camp and was in B'nai brith org. I grew up and out of it. You are the one that has converted and if you go to church on Sun than you do not keep the real Sabbath day holy. I just lost faith. which is worse? Second, big whop. I misspelled you name. I guess that's a sin in your opinion.

    So how come you are not able to come back at me with intelligent responses and information. all you can say is I'm boring and easy. I must be correct in all I said since you can't seem to disprove me. Wow, I'm impressed with myself now. Thank you! And I have a B.A in marketing not a PHD. And yes, I watch Bill Maher (very astute of you seeing as I copy and pasted his quote and gave him credit) and enjoy him and agree with most of what he says.

  262. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    Why does my old post make me a hypocrite? I'm still promoting fairness and respect for all. And on that note, if YOU don't want to live in a country where there are different races, religions, sexual orientation, ect then move to your own island and make your own laws. And your crazy rant about the Cybernetic Behavioral Modification is just that. C.R.A.Z.Y. Also, man up. If you are going to insult a person (disrespect) spell out the entire word, don't use asterisks. I can't fire you you b/c you are unemployed!! HAHA!

  263. David Don

    Continued – I pasted this reply of yours from the Inquisitr: "I like this post. Thank you. That is all I am asking for. I don't have any problem with you or anyone having religion or faith so long as it is not forced onto others. But I must add, that as you said a majority of Christians are closed minded and judgmental, I think it makes it harder for them to be inviting to others that may consider conversion, but after seeing it they change their minds. If their goal is to "save" others from the fire of hell (and know that I was rolling my eyes while typing that) then maybe that should not be pushing people away…? You're just all over the place, aren't you with these sub-replies? You obviously don't have the Atheistic guts to leave a main post of your own! (interupted)…I just came back from your replies to me. You're fast. Impressive. You're obviously monitoring my typing. F.Y.I., I'm not a church-goer, I don't believe in Sunday worship, and your Atheistic beliefs – as a Jew – don't impress me; King David says in Psalms "The fool hath said there is no God.". If you don't like how I'm talking to you, then let me know so that I can cease this conversation which I title "Atheist vs Logical Man" as I have better things to do with my time. Or should I presume that round 3 is coming up? One last thing, how many of your blind clients know that you display obnoxious behavior against those who believe in a God on the internet?!

  264. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    First, I'm on facebook, so every time you make a post, a little box comes up and tells me. It's not rocket science. Next, I have always believed in the first amendment and that it has to work for EVERYONE not just me or the people I agree with. I have no problem with anyone practicing their religion so long as it does not impede on others and their rights (and that includes playing your music too loud!). And your adding more religious saying to show why I am a fool, is foolish since I don't believe in ANY of it. I will use bible/torah quotes to contradict peoples own words but not to prove mine. And I don't think the blind people (A) care about what I do on my private time and (B) THEY CAN"T READ IT…THEY ARE BLIND!!!!! LMFAO

  265. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    No sense what so ever! There is no such word as re-initialize. There is a reinitialize which means to assign initial values to something again. Still doesn't make sense though…. But I guess since you still have not been able to respond to my first response to your original post to me then there is no point in going forward since you keep changing the subject.

  266. David Don

    Hey, take it easy Lauren! You're dissing the same people you're working with…tisk, tisk! Are you kidding Lauren, a "Bachelor of Arts" in Marketing?! What's up with that?! When was the last time you had your Scientific I.Q. tested Lauren? Your Dopamine, Adrenal, and Endorphines are obviously in high-gear. Is round 4 coming up – yes/no?

  267. David Don

    OK, I'm back. I just came from a meal-break. And I've had time to think about your tangents further. And you're avoiding my Logic. A German-Jew is not 100% Jew – only pure-blood Jews born in Israel are 100% Jew! And I've also discovered your "Achilles' heal", 4x over: You're a Hypocrite – for a Jew – when you're around your blind clients, your atheistic frame of mind makes you Conceited, you have no Scientific I.Q., and you're Argumentative (aka – obnoxious); how many more Achilles' heals do you have? Your comment above is one example of how your Atheistic mind has made you conceited, and I quote: "Still doesn't make sense though…. But I guess since you still have not been able to respond to my first response to your original post to me then there is no point in going forward since you keep changing the subject." I have the Constitutional right to change the subject if I damn please. If you really think there's no point in going forward, then I WIN! Is your Dopamine, Adrenaline, and Endorphines still in high-gear…for round 5 – yes/no?

  268. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    Just b/c that last one was sooooooo stupid I will respond, but I will not discuss new things until you want to go back to the original conversation which "I have the Constitutional right". On that note, I did not say you couldn't change the subject, I said I wasn't going to indulge you if you kept it up (and yes now on this subject alone I am being a hypocrite). Next your theroy that to be 100% Jewish you have to come from Israel is beyond stupid. That is like saying the only way you are 100% black is if you came from Africa. People migrate. Which is why this country is here in the first place. Ever hear of manifest destiny? You say you are Roman-Catholic (yet you don't go to Sunday mass) but you can only be that if you came from Rome. Sounds stupid eh? And I am not conceited. Stubborn maybe. Argumentative, absolutely (but so are you so to call me obnoxious you are calling yourself that as well)! I claim the belief of I don't know and you have to prove it to me. There are talking snakes, prove it. The red sea can part, prove it. someone can come back from death, prove it. You can't. So there. And just b/c some guys said so in a book written thousands of years ago and it was not first person narrative nor autobiographical nor SCIENTIFICALLY proven, then you are not going to be able to change my mind.

  270. Leighanna Boekeloo

    David Don Sir, you are ill informed! It is a wee bit silly to say that pagans worship Satan considering that they do no even believe in him! Pagan is a term these days given to people who don't believe in the male dominated monotheistic dogmas. Ask ten pagans what paganism is and you will get 10 different answers.
    In a very brief nutshell:-
    It is said that when man first started to evolve, he used religion to help him understand the world, the environment, the weather, the cycles of nature. So the great lady and lord came into being. Having this "knowledge" also gave man a sort of power over his environment.
    As the human race expanded, those basic ideas grew and developed. All races had their own variation.
    Today, there are as many types of paganism as there are pagans. Some pagans remain true to the old religions, some pick and choose parts of many different ones, none of them being Satan worship…Satan being a Christian idea.

  271. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    I see no point in going forward b/c there is no real conversation. You say something, I try to add my opinion and then you change the subject. I thought the point was for you to change my mind, not yours…

  272. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    I see no point in going forward b/c there is no real conversation. You say something, I try to add my opinion and then you change the subject. I thought the point was for you to change my mind, not yours…

  273. David Don

    Round 5 begins! Lauren, I'm not Roman-Catholic, and I'm European-American with a measure of Jew' thrown in. You say "Next your 'theroy' that to be 100% Jewish you have to come from Israel is beyond stupid.". You need to do a spell-check on "theroy"; You say "I thought the point was for you to change my mind, not yours…". I'm not trying to change your mind Lauren. I don't waste my time prosthelitizing to Atheistic minds; and as point in fact you held off deliberately in telling me you were Atheistic. You say "And your crazy rant about the Cybernetic Behavioral Modification is just that." Well since you say it's only a rant, then you won't mind it when I ask this – hypothetically of course: If I, or a trained technician, could erase your "atheistic psyche" from your mind with C.B.M. would you let me or the trained technician do so? And lastly, the reason I continue to respond to you is because you still return a reply, like the conceited and vain little girl you are. You just can't seem to get enough of me, can you? Your Dopamine, Adrenaline, and Endorphines are obviously still running quite high. Are we on for round 6 – yes/no?

  274. David Don

    Lauren, you misplaced our conversation debates. I request that you return them, so that I can make pasted copies of them for my internet Email inbox. Or better yet, here is my Email address to send them to: david.don2291@yahoo.com

  275. Donald Cook

    Hi Linda. I am 54 and was also brought up in the church as well. Just a comment on the bible translations. In a good translation like the NAS they don't translate it from a translation. They go back to the original manuscripts and use knowledge from new archaeological discoveries. I agree that some churches may preach and focus on a few items and a lot of times take things totally out of context, but we as believers also have to be careful not to let our personal feelings get in the way of what God is trying to tell us in his word. We tend to like to hear about his love, but want to turn a deaf ear when they speak of his wrath. We also have to understand that it doesn't matter what we think, as he is the creator and he can run his world as he sees fit. A hard pill to swallow sometimes I know as I deal with this myself at times. I have also found that if you study the Jewish customs and religion at that time in history, the bible seems to come alive and you start to understand things like you never did before. I also have been disappointed by organized religion as well at times, but that is where we must sit down and reason with our brothers and sisters if we can. Who knows, maybe we are the ones misinterpreting something. This is how we learn. As the Bible says, “…as iron sharpens iron”. And we should never put any human being on a pedestal as they will always let us down at one time or another. In short, we must keep our eye on the creator and not on his creation. You are correct in saying that church will not get you to heaven, only a personal relationship with Jesus will do that. We are to gather at church to encourage each other and hear the word of God, but should always check it out for ourselves. I apologize for being long-winded. It has been great talking with you and Lauren. Bless you both, and take care!

  276. David Don

    To Lauren: you erased my request and our conversational-debates from your Facebook Timeline. I requested that you return those conversational-debates so that I can make pasted copies of them in my Internet Email Inbox. Also, you can send them to my Email inbox yourself using my Email address as follows: david.don2291@yahoo.com

  277. Linda Harrison

    I don't understand why the need to save conversation in a debate….please enlighten me. Just curious so please don't get your drawers in a bunch.

  278. Linda Harrison

    I appologized for my southern slam ….if you do not want to accept the sincerity of it that is not my problem . I am not a bully and I abhor those who are, so if you are a "Christian" then you should forgive a sincere appology.

  279. Linda Harrison

    Lauren, I think you should consider the source and let him drift away. He obviously is in "love" with his own voice and narrow opinion. Sad really!

  280. Linda Harrison

    I am sorry but I do not agree with you but I respect your position and faith in your beliefs so we will agree to disagree and may God Bless You and Yours.

  281. David Don

    So sorry Linda, you're too late. I already found them, I finished it up, and now they're in my inbox – and the reason: To save it for posterity. By-the-way, Linda, I left at least 2[?] replies to your Comments, and you never returned a response – why? Don't you have a Facebook Timeline of your own? Just curious.

  282. Linda Harrison

    I am very busy ….sorry. I am a full time student, am self employed, and I am raising a 14 year old granddaughter as well as enjoying time with my husband who is a facinating man even after 25 years , so I don't get to facebook that often. I beg your pardon.

  283. Linda Harrison

    I am sure I will eventually read them but this subject has become boring now. Onward and upward Mr. David Don.

  284. David Don

    You're obviously not busy enough, because you make the time to leave comments in an online tabloid-rag. And why are you asking me a question about my reply to Lauren above: She's Atheist, so why do you care about any replies to her? And by-the-way, I'm a logical man, quite pragmatic, and from my Yahoo Profile I have an affinity for: General science categories, science books, Racial equality, religious assertion, movies, Time travel, Bodybuilding, etcetera. Lauren only has a B.A. in Marketing. Why does an Atheist need a B.A. in Marketing? So what degrees are you vying for?

  285. Linda Harrison

    Ok so I looked for your replies but they are not there but my facebook is private so that may be the reason. In any case….have a nice life and be well.

  286. Lauren Jaye Siegel

    Linda Harrison That guy is a loony bird and started to get creepy so I cut it off. I wouldn't indulge him. When he started copy/pasting my old posts from my personal facebook page and mentioning my work I was like, ok you are psycho. And he has no job so he has all the time in the world. Good luck, but I would block him if I were you.

  287. Linda Harrison

    he is blocked and I am a gun toting texan and my husband is a marine of the vietnam time frame. I am not afraid but should his crazy ass track me down he should refer to the "castle Law" in Texas. They will not need a bag but a spoon and jar if he comes after me….LOL

  288. David Don

    To Linda Harrison(A bible-thumper yourself), and Lauren Jaye Siegel(An Atheist who doesn't believe in the bible but hypocritically uses it anyway for quotes.): You're both pathetic, and Cowards. Not only did you both block me from your Facebook Timelines, you also deleted ALL your sub-replies from this online article. Linda I also read yours and Lauren's hidden exchange-of-dialogue in reference to me; Linda, I genuinely thought better of you – but apparently neither of you could handle my logical mind and self-assurance which apparently inscenced you both…so what do you both do instead of thinking logically yourselves, you both over-reacte when confronted with with logic. I WIN this round with you both! Care to try another round? Will I hear from either of you again?
    I won't be blocking neither of you from MY Facebook page: In the unlikely event either of you want to access MY Facebook page, and want another round of debating you're welcome to do so. But my strict stance is unchanged on both issues of Atheism, and Homosexuality.
    To William Simpson: Did you also receive a Degree in Theology from Lincoln College of Technology? you're obviously making rhetorical pokes at people whose comments you don't like, so be careful to whom you make rhetorical pokes at. I don't celebrate Christmas, Easter, or Halloween, as all 3 are Pagan. The bible is in the Public domain. It's accessible to anyone who wants to study it, and you only need to read, study, and memorize its content – no PhD required. Atheists don't believe in neither God or the bible, and they use both only for useless argumentation and rhetorical pokes (similarly to Lauren's tactics). Agnostics don't believe in any Gods. Also, be sure to read my latest 2nd Comment on top of my main Comment (sorted under social ranking), as I've pasted this sub-reply to you in it.
    To Leighanna Boekeloo: I've read your sub-replies. You OBVIOUSLY don't agree with my Comment to Lauren. Why can't you leave a sub-reply to mine in my Facebook page where not only will it be readily accessible to me but it will be in neutral territory? Unless you just don't have the the guts to face me down in such a neutral setting, hmmmm?

    David Don Whaaat???
    Why would I go to your personal facebook page? I do not know you and this a public forum for discussion and debate. And no…I do not agree with your comment "And as a matter-of-biblical fact, Ancient Homosexuals worshipped the Pagan's god, Satan – not the true God of the bible!". The Pagans never worshipped Satan simply because they did not believe in him!! Lmbo!! I would discuss this further with you, but I wasn't aware that I was talking to a Troll when I made my original comment!! Good night sir. I hope you enjoy your strange hobby of making both bigoted and uninformed comments and copying and pasting other people's words on the internet!! Bahahaha…I love a good laugh!!!
    P.s. How is that for disrespecting my elders?? Smh!!

  293. David Don

    To Leighanna Boekeloo: You say "I do not know you and this a public forum for discussion and debate. And no…I do not agree with your comment…". I say: Hmmm, I thought my outdated 2005 photo at left (I'm age 50 since 2011) described me quite well, and yet here you are, leaving a sub-reply (above) to me anyway, someone you don't know. I made a courteous invite to you, but unlike Lauren, you over-react to my logic and self-assurance, instead, by camouflaging your anger with pathetic insults to me. By-the-way, my listed hobbies from my Yahoo Account include the following: General science categories, science books, Racial equality, religious assertion, movies, Time travel, Bodybuilding, etcetera. Bigotry and uninformed comments are not in my character and are illogical. You say "P.s. How is that for disrespecting my elders?? Smh!!"; I say: Does that mean you also get in trouble with the law?
    "Troll"? Sticks…and…stones…will…break…my…bones…but…names…will…never…hurt…me! Trolls exist only in fiction; you need to do a reality-check. One more thing – There are plenty of Pagan religions in the world, which one do you practise…or is that top-secret, hmmmm? Whenever you're ready, we'll go for a round of debate in my Facebook page!
    Oooh, whistle while you work! Whistle while you work! Aaaand AGAIN! Oooh, whistle while you work! Whistle while you work!

    Yeah he's a few fries short of a happy meal. They get so mad that us atheist know about the Bible than they do and they still argue that we are wrong lol. Christians act like they know everything and everybody else is dumb.

  296. David Don

    To William Simpson: Well how about that, another Athiest (like Lauren). Can I stand the strain, Lol! Since the following is something that I offered to Lauren, which also pissed her off, and was one of the things that compelled her to block me from her Facebook Timeline and made her erase all of her sub-replies in the "Inquisitr", I'll offer it to you too Will – so ANTE UP!: If I, or a trained Technician, say that your "Atheist Psyche" can be erased with "Cybernetic Behavioral Modification" technology and replace it with a clean-slate then would you let me, or my trained Technician, apply this innovative technology to you? By-the-way, one last thing Will, your Dopamine, Adrenaline, Epinephrine, and Endorphine levels have obviously power-climbed quite high… be carefull with those, or else your "Atheistic mind" may "Crash and burn" and your mind will be starting with a clean-slate anyway, Lol! You're not going to block me from your Facebook Timeline are you, like Lauren did… can I stand the strain, Lol?!

  297. David Don

    To William Simpson: I said the following to Lauren which also pissed her off, and I'll say it to you too: C'mon Will Simpson, I don't have time for this – chop,chop!

  298. William Simpson

    If you people really knew the Bible as well as you say you do then you would know that God said to not talk to nonbelievers.

  299. David Don

    To William Simpson: You're an Atheist, Will, remember? You don't believe in God or the bible. "C.B.M." is waiting for you, so that it can erase your Atheistic psyche from your mind and replace it with a clean-slate, Will! Can I stand the strain?!
    Check those Dopamine, Adrenaline, Epinephrine, and Endorphine levels Will, or they will give you a clean-slate anyway!
    C'mon Will, I have better things to do with my time – chop,chop!

  300. Leighanna Boekeloo

    Linda Harrison I think that if you reread Herlinda's comment and read her replies to some of the comments you will find that you are both on the same side!!! Peace be with both of you!! :-)

  301. Linda Harrison

    I believe yuo to be correct and
    I misunderstood and appologized for my rudrness. I'm afraid I was caught up in the idiotic debate with all the haters out there. I was sincere in my appology though it is her right to accept it or not. Peace to you and yours! Thanks

  302. Linda Harrison

    I was sincere in my appology to you and ask your forgiveness. It is up to you but May God Bless You and your loved ones because I am afraid I was caught up in the B.S and that was and is no excuse.

  303. Linda Harrison

    I was sincere in my appology to you and ask your forgiveness. It is up to you but May God Bless You and your loved ones because I am afraid I was caught up in the B.S and that was and is no excuse.

  304. Herlinda Galindo

    I didn't know what you were going to say ….. I was going to stay away because I was so upset and sick. I am glad to have peeked in. Something told me to look in…. Thank you Leighanna Boekeloo… I didn't know why I was personally being attacked. It hurt my heart, thank you. I was never in a debate with anyone I was expressing my feelings. And blessings aren't to be used as weapons….

  305. David Don

    To Tony Lindo: I'm strictly Heterosexual and believe in God and the bible; Has William Simpson told you yet he's an Atheist – he don't believe in God or the bible – and enjoys arguing with those who do – He tried shoving his "Atheistic Psyche" down my throat but eventually he found out that he can't even handle my logic and self-assurance, and he even blocked me from his Facebook Timeline, Lol…as if I would want to argue with an atheistic cog, Lol! Tony you're better off not responding to him – Will is an atheistic-bigot and antagonist who knows nothing better than confrontation.
    By-the-way, Tony, have you heard anything about an 11th Ammendment in the works to be presented to the U.S. Congress? I heard this 11th Ammendment is designed to illegalize same-sex marriage and homosexuality – anything about this you've heard? I hope this Ammendment is passed soon so that this Country can move on to other social issues!

I heard this 11th Ammendment is designed to illegalize same-sex marriage and homosexuality – anything about this you've heard? I hope this Ammendment is passed soon so that this Country can move on to other social issues!

    To Tony Lindo: You're better off ignoring William Simpson. He's an Atheistic-bigot and antagonist – he don't believe in God or the bible – who enjoys arguing with people who do believe in God and the bible and hypocritically (like a typical Atheist) MISquotes from God's word; he knows nothing better than confrontation. As for me, I'm strictly heterosexual, and believe in God and the bible, and William tried to shove his "Atheist Psyche" down my throat but he eventually found out that he couldn't handle my logic and self-assurance; my logic even pissed him off to the point that he blocked me out of his Facebook Timeline, Lol…as if I would want to argue with an atheistic cog, Lol!

    Dante's Inferno depicted his "Hell", it was a painting, there's no such thing as eternal damnation in "hell", only "The Lake of Fire and Brimstone" stated in Revelation, in which all sinners will be eternally dead. And how dare you mock God and lie about what the bible says about homosexuality!: God condemns homosexuality in the bible quite clearly (English Standard Version, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10)! I don't eat pork, I've never had pre-marital sex (I'm a virgin, and don't have children) or have even been married. And in the bible God ordered the Ancient Israelites to stone to death the homosexual. I don't wear earrings or tatoos; and I see you, James, slandering heterosexual's comments in this Inquisitr forum all the time, you hypocrite, so pluck the mote out of your own eye first! And there's no such thing as a "Homophobe" or "Homohater" – the term is "Anti-Homosexual". We Hetero's have no right to judge?? You Homo's have no right to mock God and lie about him! And I am looking forward to Congress passing that 11th Ammendment to illegalize same-sex marriage and Homosexuality! And Mitt Romney for President and the 11th Ammendment!

    James Nichols that may be true of you doing a good thing for the children, however, the children are being cheated either way by a single mom or a gay couple. Yes, I guess I would rather a child be loved than not loved, fed, and clothed. The point though is you may ask for forgiveness and change your lifestyle if your gay or not. Wrong is wrong, right is right. We are ALL sinners and come short of the glory of God.

  321. Mindy Jo McCoy

    It is a sin plain and simple. No if, and, or but. Yes, straight people sin too. The answer would be to ask for forgiveness and stop what you are doing wrong. We are ALL sinners and come short of the glory of God.

    To Alyson Roberts: Greetings! You have a sympathetic Ally in me, Alyson. I'm strictly Heterosexual and Anti-Homosexual – meaning that I don't support Homosexual-rights…not even for adoption.
    I'm age 50, since 2011. When I was a teenager in the late '70s these issues of homosexual-rights were never in the news – because they were kept in the closet!

    Keep in mind Alyson, Carrie is a winner/alumni of "American Idol" and "A.I." contestants aren't required to specify their religious beliefs to the judging-panel; it could very well be that she's supported same-sex marriage all along, but she just deliberately withheld her stance on this issue from her Fans. And remember, she hasn't made any comment about what her stance is on said couples adopting.

    Alyson, it is my perception that President Obama did the same thing: He deliberately kept his stance in support of same-sex marriage concealled, especially from his constituents who opposed same-sex marriage, because he didn't want to jeopardize his bid to become the first Black-American President – a rationalization that escapes me!

    Alyson, I've heard (allbeit through rumor) that an Ammendment is in the works for the Bill-of-Rights which will be written to illegalize same-sex marriage, homosexuality, and adoption by said couples, and that this Ammendment will be presented to the U.S. Congress; My question to you Alyson: Would you support/vote for such an Ammendment that illegalizes same-sex marriage, homosexuality, and adoption by said couples?

    Michael, you're obviously biblically illiterate because the bible's OT and NT have stated plenty of times that God condemns homosexuality.

MICHAEL, I ISSUE 2 CHALLENGES TO YOU: Find this teaching in Buddha's doctrines and publish it in your Facebook-Timeline as a credited-quote (to avoid plagerism); AND CHALLENGE # 2: Find the chapters and verse in a STRICTLY (NON-KJV) Modern-English-language translation (OT and NT) that states that God supports homosexuality and that he instructed Adam and Eve to go out and establish separate (separate gay from lesbian) homosexual colonies – PRESUMING THAT YOU HAVE THE ATHEISTIC GUTS FOR IT;.

    By-the-way, Michael, in case you missed my comment elsewhere in this forum, I'm looking forward to the moment in which the U.S. Congress pulls off their docket an Ammendment designed to illegalize same-sex marriage, homosexuality, and adoption by said couples and adds it to "The Bill of Rights"; This Country needs to give undivided-attention to other national issues!

    Try reading the Bible now that you are mature enough to understand it! The beginning of knowledge begins with the fear of the Lord! Wisdom and knowledge come with age, and with prayer..God is holy, no sin can enter heaven, through Jesus Christ we are clensed from our sins, we put our trust in Him and Him alone.Jesus' blood paid our debt to sin. The wages of sin is death. Without our Lord and Saviour we would receive death. Jesus is mighty to save..but you have to have faith, and faith comes by hearing and hearing comes by the word of God.

  330. Julie Dennis Stewart

    Exactly right, I believe some people are ignorant of the facts, just as they are ignorant of the Bible facts..or they either just choose to ignore them. Churches have had lawsuits filed against them for not marrying gay/lesbian couples!

  331. Julie Dennis Stewart

    It is not just 'some book'..If you do not believe that the Bible was the book written inspired by the Holy Spirit, which is God, then you may as well not believe any of the History facts that we have..because The Historocity of God and Jesus is not just a myth..or fictional story. It is actual history. And that is a fact! Do your research, travel the world and try to disprove Jesus was real, and that he is the Son of God! However, on Judgement day every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord and Saviour! Myabe then you will believe, but I'm pretty sure it will be too late then. Try to think for yourself and do your own research, instead of taking everyone elses word for it. You will definately be kicking yourself on judgement day when you realize you cheated yourself out of paradise!

  332. Julie Dennis Stewart

    Jade Alyssa Arsenault Noone ever said that Christians dont love their neighbor, because they are gay. However, we would not be God's children if we do not adhere to God's word and warn others of what God wants us to be, not because he wants us to hate gays, but because it was not his plan and he does not condone it. It is not a healthy lifestyle and he did not design it this way. But that is not all, it is an un-natural affection. If we didnt love our neighbor, we would not worry with warning others! That is love, not loving someone to death..i.e. spiritual death!

    So you're saying you believe a book written by man is without a doubt the word of God? Of course we believe history it's been proven we have found physical evidence of it. There is not physical evidence of God and the only physical evidence of Jesus does not back anything that is said in the Bible. The book of Mormon is also a bible would you believe that too? It is also said to be inspired by God.

    Michael Kennedy – Jesus is the only way, no man comes to the Father but through the Son, Jesus Christ! If you would study your Bible you would know that Jesus established his church long before the catholic church ever existed. Jesus said I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail, the catholic church is closer to pagan teachings than you know obviously! I pray that people will wake up and realize that only through Jesus can we be redeemed. Buddah was not the son of God, and was not prophesied about throughout the Old T., Jesus was. Buddah was not the living God in the flesh!!! When man starts thinking is when you produce man made religion such as the catholic church! We are not to have man made doctrines or creeds, the New T. is to be our guide for how the church is to be conducted, the Bible is the only Doctrine christians are to use, and preferbly the KJV. Seeing that 64, 000 phrases and key verses have been left out of the other translations!

    Thank you again for the support Carrie. Celebrities don't understand how admired and looked up to they really are. And knowing someone as amazing as Carrie Underwood is on my side with this and doesn't think I am undeserving of a family or (as some of country music's fans think) I am worthy of death, means the world to me. It's amazing how the opinions of some we admire so much can bring us the strength to push through and carry on. Thank you Carrie for making me feel as if I'm not just sin or disease, thank you for giving me hope and making me want to push on just a little bit further for the life that all of us deserve to have.

    To Leighanna Boekeloo: Hi Leighanna, remember me? You might want to pass this sub-reply onto Linda Harrison (seeing as how she blocked me out of her Facebook Timeline…and in concert with her atheistic-buddy, Lauren.), Lol:

    Linda Harrison, what Leighanna is trying to say is "Peace be with you same-sex marriage supporters, same-sex couples, homosexuals, and Atheists". But on the flip-side, us detractors who oppose homosexuality (I'm also a detractor), as well as homosexual-rights, same-sex marriage, and adoption-rights by said couples can go to "HELL" in a hand-basket (or is that Dante's Inferno…Lol!).

    Leighanna, I'm looking forward to the day in which the U.S. Congress pulls off its docket an Ammendment that illegalizes same-sex marriage, homosexuality, and adoption by said couples.

    Leighanna (and Linda) in case you both missed my comment elsewhere in this forum, do you think that when such an Ammendment is passed by the United States Congress that it will infuriate the Homo's and compell them to ignite a Civil War between Homo's and Hetero's? And the Homo's will say "Finally, WE DECLARE WAR on you Hetero's!", Lol.
    The tech' of "Cybernetic Behaviorial Modification" awaits all Homo's in which your "Homo' Psyches" will be erased from your mind and replaced by the more preferrable "Hetero' Psyche"!

    I'm making a pasted copy of my sub-reply to Linda Harrison c/o Leighanna Boekeloo for my internet Email inbox so that I don't waste my time looking for it.

    P.S. :
    Leighanna and Linda, considering my previous experience in finding my sub-replies somehow deleted from this forum (without duplicate main posts), wherein nobody ever claims responsibility for this, I'm going to do the same thing that I've been doing and remember Leighanna what that is, hmmmm? : I'm making this sub-reply as a duplicate main post above at the beginning of this forum…that's right you get that brownie-point!

This sub-reply is to both you and Jade; Please pass it on to Jade, as her reply-link is disabled. Jade your use of the word "Amen" is out of context and used rhetorically! Apparently, no one in this forum is willing to stand up to you Homo's and rebuke you for your abberant homo-behavior… SO I'M GOING TO HAVE TO DO IT MYSELF! Carrie Underwood doesn't speak for me or any other faithfully heterosexual couples who're Anti-homosexual! God created reproductive capability only between the heterosexual man and woman! I ISSUE THREE CHALLENGES TO BOTH OF YOU! CHALLENGE #1: Find the bible's scriptural content in both the OT and NT which state that God CREATED the PHYSIOLOGY of the Human to be Homosexual WITHOUT reproductive capability! CHALLENGE #2: And that he ordered Adam and Eve to go out and establish separate homosexual colonies, separate Gay from Lesbian colonies! CHALLENGE #3 – God and Jesus Christ (Yeshua in Hebrew) STATED DIRECTLY that homosexuality is not a sin – PRESUMING OF COURSE YOU HAVE THE ATHEISTIC/HOMO' GUTS TO TAKE ME UP ON THESE CHALLENGES!

    There's no such thing as a "Homophobe", "Homohater", or "Homobigot" , and because these terms are part of your Homosexual propaganda politics in which you only want to remake this Country into your perverted homo-image!; and the correct term is "Anti-homosexual"!

    You speak in a really hateful tone to fellow human beings who disagree with you, I bet Jesus Christ loves that. Before I address your "challenges," I'd like to state that the most important rule to Jesus was to treat others as you would like to be treated, so as ignorant as you may think I am, I will try my hardest not to be ugly to you. Now, your "challenges," God never told Adam and Eve to be homosexual. Although, I don't see how your argument is relevant as I never claimed God told Adam and Eve to be homosexual. God did tell Adam and Eve to be prosperous and multiply, which does explain human reproduction, but unfortunately, it doesn't explain human sexuality, which is a totally different thing. And lastly, God never stated that homosexuality is not a sin, He also never stated that it is a sin. I know of the six "clobber versus" that Christians use to condemn homosexuality from the Bible, but they are all taken out of context and none of them have taken account of cultural or historical background information into their claims. If you'd like my take on any of these verses, I'd be more than happy to elaborate for you. And now my challenge for you: "Be a good Christian, treat people as Jesus Christ would and spread a little bit of kindness each day."

  345. David Don

    To Derek Vincent: I knew it! It figures! I should've expected your typical weak response (typical homo-response!)! You even ignored my previous sub-reply's second paragraph, you coward! What? You're accusing me of speaking in a "hateful" tone because I disagree with your homo-obsessions – sighhhhh? The Constitutional Right to disagreement is what made this Country great!

    I also held off on further comment in my previous reply to you and Jade because I thought for sure that both of you were going to quote bible verses to me, but as typical homo's go you can't pull yourself out of your typically "ugly" bible-reading-laziness, even to re-enforce your position.
    You say: "I will try my hardest not to be ugly to you.". I say: I don't give a damn, quite frankly, and your attempt to downplay your response to me don't impress me.

    You say: "God did tell Adam and Eve to be prosperous and multiply, which does explain human reproduction, but unfortunately, it doesn't explain human sexuality, which is a totally different thing." – (Only a Homo' would think that way, not God.) I say: As point in biblical fact God says both ARE intertwined and, "unfortunately" for your ignorance, God explains that quite clearly; in other words both human reproduction and sexuality are not different at all, but go hand-in-hand – it was God who created the human heterosexual-attraction process and whereas, in opposition to God, Satan perverted that process with homosexuality! Derek, you may as well take it upon yourself to tell God to come down here to earth and order him to tell you if he does condemn homosexuality outside the bible!
    You say: "God never stated that homosexuality is not a sin, He also never stated that it is a sin. I know of the six "clobber versus" that Christians use to condemn homosexuality from the Bible, but they are all taken out of context…". I say: "Clobber verses"? Your colloqueal usage not withstanding, you're use of the term "clobber verses" is just a reflection of how lazy you are about bible-reading and study!
    You say: "…none of them have taken account of cultural or historical background information into their claims.". I say: What accounts of cultural or historical background information don't they take into account of their claims, that would be relevant to God's condemnation of homosexuality? OH, WAIT, don't tell me, let me guess!: One of those "Clobber verses" they use is the account of how God instructs Lot to find 10 righteous men in his native Soddom and Gomorrah to prevent God from completely destroying the Cities due to the population's grievous sins, correct – is that one of them "clobber verses"? Well, as we all know from the scriptural account of how that mission of Lot's turned out, God completely destroyed those cities – unless, of course you don't believe Derek (and Jade) that Soddom and Gomorrah even existed in the first place? And here's another morsel of agony for you both (and your ilk!): Ancient Sparta had plenty of cultural mandates, and in particular mandated homosexuality – in which it was the Law for the entire population! Archeologists state that Sparta's population entered into a rapid downward decline[due to their mandated homosexuality – emphasis mine], a downward decline of their population that continued until there was nothing left of their population in 300 years! That's how the United States will end up if homo's have their way, the Country will die out from mandated homosexuality!

    You say: "And now my challenge for you: "Be a good Christian, treat people as Jesus Christ would and spread a little bit of kindness each day.". I say: If Jesus (Yeshua in Hebrew), were in the flesh on earth, he would rebuke you for your sin of homosexuality, that it's an ungodly unnatural relationship – the antithesis of natural male-to-female relationships, and tell you to go and end your homosexuality (and bi-sexuals theirs for that matter), and sin no more!

    If I told you that Time Travel could become established fact in the future and a *time-traveler* (me)(**from my interests noted in my Yahoo account profile.) could prove to you that God and Jesus Christ condemned homosexuality by taking you back to 2,000 years ago and asking Jesus this question…and he says "yes" it is condemned by God, then would you believe that?

    If I told you that I, or a trained technician, could apply both future technologies of "Cybernetic Hibernation" and "Cybernetic Behavioral Modification" to you to erase your "Homo' Psyche" from your brain/mind and replace it with the more preferable "Hetero' Psyche" would you let me, or the trained technician? And don't avoid THIS paragraph now either!

    P.S. :
    As per usual, I'm maintaining this sub-reply to you (and Jade) as a duplicate main-posting above in this forum to prevent its deletion.

    Very well said Mr. Vincent. Mr. Don, I know my amen was rhetorical, it was meant to be that way. I support gay rights, and everything that comes with it. You seem to have a lot of hatred for these people, yet have you ever taken the time to view them as what they are, human beings? And furthermore, Mr. Don, just to let you know your assumption was completely wrong. I am not gay, I am not bi. I am very straight and very supportive of what I see to be fair and equal. If you wanted to change someone's viewpoint on this, Mr. Don, then I'm sorry, but you are wasting your time with me.

    If I told you that Time Travel could become established fact in the future and a *time-traveler* (me)(**from my interests noted in my Yahoo account profile.) could prove to you that God and Jesus Christ condemned homosexuality by taking you back to 2,000 years ago and asking Jesus this question…and he says "yes" it is condemned by God, then would you believe that?

    If I told you that I, or a trained technician, could apply both future technologies of "Cybernetic Hibernation" and "Cybernetic Behavioral Modification" to you to erase your "Homo' Psyche" from your brain/mind and replace it with the more preferable "Hetero' Psyche" would you let me, or the trained technician?

I say: Your rhetorical naive question not withstanding, of course I view them as human beings – as I've always done in my 50 years of life! God also viewed the population of Soddom and Gomorrah as human beings, which is why he held off on his plans to destroy them to give Lot time to search for 10 righteous "men"; Do you remember how many times Lot pleaded with God not to destroy his native birthplace by negotiating with God to hold off on his plans of destruction? God gave Lot recovery time to do just that, but Soddom and Gomorrah knew that Lot represented God and they ignored Lot anyway because they were having too much fun in their sins!

    For the same reason God promised Noah that he wouldn't destroy the human race with a flood, next time, by creating a rainbow, and thus sealing his covenant with Noah, God abided by his promise to Noah and didn't intervene in Ancient Sparta's sins of homosexuality with neither a flood or 'opening the earth' as a *ground-fissure* as happened to S and G [** or "fire and brimstone" in KJV ] but, instead, allowed Sparta's sins to "find them out" – [emphasis mine]; their sins of homosexuality lead to their population's eventual decline and decimation in 300 years; In Sparta's case God didn't need to destroy them himself because their mandated homosexuality made the same result of population-decimation happen!

    One more thing Jade: When such an amendment is entered into the "Bill of Rights" do you suppose that this will compel the Homo's to renounce their American Citizenship and establish separate homosexual island-colonies, "Gaybos" Island separate from "Lesbos" Island respectively? And remember no intermingling between both Islands, because that's cheating – just as with Sparta, the homo's sins will still "find them out"!

    Mr. Don, I removed nothing of yours. If I had, I would not have bothered to reply to you. You speak with the confidence that it will happen, that it will become illegal, but what will you do if it doesn't work like you think it will?

  353. Derek Vincent

    Again Mr. Don, hurtful and harmful name-calling is not what Jesus Christ stands for. Even if you feel that I'm not living life the way you see I should, it's not your place to judge me, it's God's. So leave that to Him and I'll try to live life the best I can, trying to be the best person I can be and I hope you will do the same with your life.

    Now, the story of Sodom. Since you won't tell me which Bible versus you are referring to, I'm going to assume that you are talking about Genesis 19:1-14, please clarify to me if I am mistaken..

    It's important to remember when studying the Bible that it's a book about God and His love for the world, not about human sexuality or conduct. When a person tries to make it about human sexuality or human conduct, they risk misinterpreting it. So when studying something like the story of Sodom, one can ask themselves two questions, what does this say about God and His love for the world and what does this say about homosexuality?

    Some people say the city of Sodom was destroyed because it was overrun by sexually obsessed homosexuals. In fact, the city of Sodom had been doomed to destruction long before. Jesus and five Old Testament prophets all speak of the sins that led to the destruction of Sodom — and not one of them mentions homosexuality.

    Ezekiel 16:48-49 tell us the sins that led to the destruction of Sodom and it states: “This is the sin of Sodom; she and her suburbs had pride, excess of food, and prosperous ease, but did not help or encourage the poor and needy. They were arrogant and this was abominable in God’s eyes.”

    Today, heterosexuals and homosexuals alike do well to remember that we break God’s heart when we spend all we earn on ourselves, when we forget the poor and hungry, when we refuse to do justice or show mercy, when we leave strangers at the gate. I admit, there are a lot of gay folk who are Sodomites (and a lot of straight folk as well). Sodomites are rich and don’t share what they have with the poor. Sodomites have plenty and want more. While millions are hungry, homeless, and sick, Sodomites rush to build bigger homes, buy bigger cars, and own more property — putting their trust in safer stock portfolios and more secure retirement accounts. God has called us to do justice, love, mercy, and walk humbly with our Creator. Sodom was destroyed because it's people didn’t take God seriously about caring for the poor, the hungry, the homeless, or the outcast.

    What does the story of Sodom say about homosexual orientation? Nothing. It was common for soldiers, thieves, and bullies to rape a fallen enemy, asserting their victory by dehumanizing and demeaning the vanquished. This act of raping an enemy is about power and revenge, not about homosexuality or homosexual orientation. And it is still happening today. The sexual act that occurs in the story of Sodom is a gang rape — and homosexuals oppose gang rape as much as anyone else. That’s why I believe the story of Sodom says a lot about God’s will for each of us, but nothing about homosexuality.

    I can elaborate the "Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve" argument, we can discuss Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13, we can discuss Romans 1:26-27, we can discuss 1 Corinthians 6:9 or 1 Timothy 1:10. I know my scriptures well. I studied them very, very carefully because people like you used to make me feel as if God didn't love me anymore. What I discovered is that people like you aren't living very Christian-like lives. It comes down to the simple belief that if God didn't want me this way, He wouldn't have made this way.

    This is a crying shame. If you're going to call yourself a Christian, at least somewhat follow what the Bible says. This is one of the few, simple things to follow: don't support it, don't do it. God forbid He actually want you to do something hard for Him. Furthermore, this poor young lady is wasting her life. If you're not going to be a complete, 100% Christian, you might as well go on the other side. Being in between doesn't make any sense and certainly isn't helping anyone. Love gay people all you can, but loving them is completely different than supporting their sin. I don't understand the confusion.

  359. Jenae Ernest

    Lauren Jaye Siegel Not to mention, that's of the old testament, which is the law for the Jews back in the day. We live in the new testament times, we don't have to follow the laws. Jesus came to fulfill the law.

  362. Amy Manoharan

    See this is why I really can't stand most christians. They are INCREDIBLY intolerant and judgmental. EVEN THOUGH that is exactly the opposite of the teachings of their Jesus… They are taught from birth to hate everyone who doesn't go to their own church. They don't even like christians who go to other churches. GOOD FOR YOU CARRIE for being strong enough to stand up to the idiots among your flock. Chances are your 'fans' will no doubt be bent out of shape and will judge you for it… but you got at least one more fan because you do support gay rights. Good for you. Glad to hear it. Finally, a rational christian. Just wish it wasn't so rare.

  364. Kaitlin Vickers Edwards

    I strongly believe that God loves everyone. I believe he loves the sinner and hates the sin. I believe that homosexuality is a sin because of Leviticus 18:22 that states,"You must not have sexual intercourse with a male as one has sexual intercourse with a woman; it is a detestable act." I , however, was not given the power to judge others because God is the one to do that (Romans 8:33b) I was only instructed to love my neighbor as myself (Mark 12:31). I am not saying I have never sinned myself, Romans 3:23, "For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God." I believe that Carrie Underwood should read her bible a little deeper and not speak for God without a very close personal relationship with him. We will be judged according to his scriptures regardless of our generation or knowledge of them (James 4:11, Hebrews 4:12, Romans 2:12). I urge you all to not judge one another and treat all people as if you would want to be treated. However, I would like to call sin as sin and inform the people of this great country. I would also like to comment that those reading this who proclaim to be "gay" should search their Spirit. Chances are that they will not find God there. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is Freedom! and God cannot dwell where sin is.

  365. Kaitlin Vickers Edwards

    But Vickie are you saying that the old testament is not important any longer? I just don't believe that is true. I think that if you are going to throw out the old testament you should also throw out any other form of history earlier than a century ago. We must learn from the past. As I understand it Jesus's crucifixion was the sacrifice for our sins. You know if you have read the old testament that the people were to sacrifice a perfect animal usually a lamb for the sins of their family. The crucifixion took the place of the sacrificial offerings because not only was Jesus Christ the son of God but he was also the only person ever on Earth to be perfect and free from sin while in the flesh. He even had temptations just like you and I do. Yes his crucifixion removed some of the laws from those of us who are Christians but not all of the laws. I am not too concerned with the scripture you mentioned in regard to the gay marriage question but rather another verse within the chapter. But I believe that the old testament is just as important today as it was all those years ago.

  366. Kaitlin Vickers Edwards

    The bible is not supposed to be added to or taken away from, William. It says so in Revelation 22:18-19, “For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book."

    @Brooke Emeott: OK…You can dismount from your arrogant high-horse now — whoever the Hell you are, arrogant Stranger! In case you hadn't noticed [even in your obvious laziness] I haven't participated in this forum since June 30, as I have stopped doing so…so go wax arrogant with another forum-user – AND DON'T SEND ANOTHER FORUM ALERT TO ME!!!! BTW, your reply to my comment reads more like a "cyber-bully", or just another Homo' disguising yourself as a Hetero'! And since you believe in "God", you can believe this, " The God I believe in penalizes the sin of Homosexuality on his own timetable, which IS NOT the timetable of the defiant-and-arrogant Homosexual! So in the spirit of the "Constitutional-Right-to-Freedom-of-Speech", take your arrogant, homo' remarks with you back to Ancient Sparta where you belong (you homo' disguising yourself as a hetero') and wash your mouth out with soap before you head back to Ancient Sparta, AND DON'T SEND ANOTHER FORUM ALERT TO ME AGAIN — I'm cogitating advanced technology that will ERASE the "Homo'-Psyche" from their mind and in turn, that same technology will reset their mind with the more preferable "Hetero'-Psyche"!!!!!!

    Hi Mr. Miller, I totally agree with your answer. You remember the song Carrie Underwood sang a couple
    of years ago called "Jesus Take The Wheel" well from here response now it sounds like she needs to listen to her own song and have a revival in her heart for Jesus, for surely if Jesus has the wheel and direction for our life, he has promised us all "LIFE ETERNAL" now that is "Jesus Take The Wheel"

  373. Will Simpson

    You're so misguided. Jesus does not exist, the bible was written by barbaric sheep sacrificers who thought the world was flat.

  374. Gerald Carter

    Mr. Simpson, I assure you I am not misguided, those men that wrote the Bible as you call them barbaric sheep sacrifcers, they were men who gave all for the service of the Lord. Most of the writers of the Word of God "The Bible" died horrendous deaths for their belief and service for the Lord, but the Apostle Paul put it best when he said just before his death in Rome, "I've fought a good fight I've kept the faith, therefore now there is a crown of rightenous laid up for me, but not only to me but to whosoever will call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Mr. Simpson, I'll soon be 70 yrs old and I can honestly say Jesus has been a friend, my deliver in lifes troublesome times, and he gave me the opportunity to be saved almost 55 yrs ago. I remember it as if it was yesterday. So no matter what one may say that Jesus does not exist I know that he lives and that one day if I remain in fellowship with him I will be able to see him face to face as my Saviour.

  375. Will Simpson

    In all respect the Bible even says the world is flat. Also explain to me how Noah got kangaroos on the ark? According to the Bible every living creature was within walking distance of where Noah lived, so therefor it is impossible that the story of the ark is in any way true, yet the bible claims it is. So if one story is untrue how many others are? Religion was made up as a way to explain how things happen before science came along.

    James Nichols How are you being fruitful? You are not producing children. A man and a woman are co-creators with God in bringing forth children. The rest of your post is just the same ole silly response we get all the time by homosexuals with an agenda. The dietary laws and ordinances were for particular cultures in particular times. But the moral laws are for all peoples for all time. And the silliest part of your post is telling David to keep his opinions to himself. Haha. You do realize you are in the opinion section right?

  378. Randy McRay

    And for Carrie, I just lost a ton of respect for you. I know you go to a church that accepts this sin and you are young, but try reading scripture and see for yourself. What other sins does your church support? Do they allow men to bring in their mistresses with their wives? Or maybe they bring their wife one week and the mistress the next week..or Sundays and Wednesdays respectively. Maybe they allow or will one day allow NAMBLA to practice their beliefs openly in your church. They feel they are justified as well. For those who don't know NAMBLA, it stands for the North American Man Boy Love Association. Where does it stop.

  379. Randy McRay

    There is a procedure that can determine your true sex. Surgery can be performed to remove certain parts. I admit I'm not sure how your or old you can be for this surgery, but there is help available. What you should not be doing is pandering to both sexes. I do not judge you as few know what you are going through, but there is help. Do whatever you can to avoid giving in to sin.

  380. Randy McRay

    Kelly, I agree with your general point here. You speak the truth. Don't let those who are lost and try to confuse you so so.

  381. Randy McRay

    Lauren Jaye Siegel – He did not give you free will to reject Him and then turn around and force you to be with Him. If you choose Him, you will be with Him eternally, but if you do not choose Him, you will not spend eternity with Him. What kind of free will is that. He is a gentleman and will not force Himself on you.

  382. Randy McRay

    Actually Pamela the gay agenda does want the church to condone it. Why do you think there is this big push to see homosexuality as not only not a sin in the bible, but blessed by God. Once it becomes legal in all states, you can bet they will start forcing churches to marry them. You will say like the gays, that this is not true, but mark my work.

  383. Randy McRay

    Pamela Coley Schrock – Gays as a rule will go to places where they know the people are not accepting of them and put themselves in a position to be turned down for the sole purpose to bring lawsuit against them. It happens all the time. Now who's being naive?!

  384. Randy McRay

    Jade Alyssa Arsenault – Loving someone such as your neighbor is speaking the truth to them. If one person tells them their sins are okay which could lead to their destruction and another person warns them to turn away from that sin so they may be saved, which one is really your neighbor or friend?

  385. Randy McRay

    Keep up the good fight Alyson. We will be made fun of and called bigots, but salvation is ours. And hopefully through prayer they will change so that salvation can be theirs to. Thanks for standing up!

    Everyone should love one another. Especially in these times when the world is filled with so much hate. I believe everyone should choose their own beliefs for themselves and not be forced to believe what someone else see as right. We should accept everyone for who they are and let God, the moon, stars, or whatever or whoever you believe in do all the judging. If we all loved one another this world would be a better place.

  387. Cat Michael

    read Romans 1 and then read Revelations (liers, fornicators, adultrey, sexually immoral (homosexuals), etc. will burn in the lake of fire. The Bible tells us Not to judge the person, but to judge the act. Anyone who has sinned must repent (turn away from their sin). This sin is just another attack of the enemy. Please people read the Bible and truly and humbly talk to God and ask Him to reveal the truth to you. James it seems to me that either you have read the Bible or have heard certian parts of it, but you have missed so major things. God created you and He loves you, but He does not love or approve of your sin, turn away from it and find His unconditional love

    This is why I stopped going to Church(Southern Baptist)….Because it was full of the most condemning people….you drink a beer, your fat, you curse, your not married, you get divorced, you go to hell….PLEASE worry about YOUR walk……no one else's…..I help teach co ed Sunday school, sadly those kids could not go to their holier than thou parents…..WHY because there parents were so worried about the splinter in their child's eye than the boulder in theirs…..My search for a church continues……

    I don't see anything in her dialogue in this piece that says she supports gay marriage. She is saying that she thinks gays should have the right to love each other publicly. She does not say that her church supports gay marriage but rather that they are "gay friendly." She does not want to judge anybody and she shouldn't…and we shouldn't as Christians. But homosexuality is a sin therefore God will judge those who participate in that sin just as He will addicts, murderers, rapists, liars, and thieves, etc. All of these people are welcome in the body Christ as long as the repent (turn away from) of their sin and ask God to forgive them. I see nothing wrong with what Carrie said in this particular interview.

    Younger generations who know not the Word. Case and point:" thus says The Lord : Stand by the roads ,and look,and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is, and walk in it, and find rest for your souls.

    "But they said (Carrie and company) WE WILL NOT WALK IN IT!!!! Just stick to the Word of God, pray for the age of apostasy has to come before the Return of Christ !!!!

    Why does everyone presume to think they speak for God, when His word tells us what He thinks so clearly?

    because people are prideful idiots who think the bible has been misinterpreted for thousands of years…

    she probably isnt a christain cuz if she had the mind of Christ and the Holy Spirit living in her she would know better than make statements like that.

    Peer Pressure! She's a Coward! Which reminds me of another person who caved in to the status quo. King Saul. Samuel the prophet confronted him with this statement! "To obey is better than sacrifice, and to harken better than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubborn is as iniquity and idolatry…" 1 Samuel 15:22-23
