Wolfie, post me some proof proving that marriage is a solely Christian tradition.

This argument will never end. This thread may be locked but the issue will be debated throughout time.

Okay, we have gotten way off topic here. It's been real and it's been fun but it hasn't been real fun.

Let's get back to determining whether a boycott of Chick-fil-A is worth it.
To me, it's just doing what I've been doing, anyhow.

Overall, I'm torn. The bottom of the chain (the employees) shouldn't suffer because of their nitwit-boss, but at the same time...their nitwit-boss is benefiting from company profits, and thereby the anti-gay groups are benefiting.

I just think the irony, when all the people binging on CFA right now develop diabetes later-on, will be extra funny.

Yes, it's really funny when someone gets a possibly life-threatening disease.

Sorry Musicman but this has taken me ages to type up on this blasted device.

Excuse me then, God may not hate them for being gay. Although the KJV Bible states:
Leviticus 18:22 wrote:
Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: It is abomination


Leviticus 20:13 wrote:
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.


So the Christian God doesn't exactly smile upon gays.

Disregarding all the crazy stuff found right next to these quotes I heard an interesting theory on those passages. For the second quote, apparently in the pre-English version two different words for man were used, one meaning man-of-high-status and the other meaning man-of-low-status. Basically the upper class shouldn't mix with that filthy lower class. :wink:
That's just something I remember hearing and I can't really go look for sources right now since it's a pain to do on mobile device google. Darn..

As for the first quote, that just seems to be saying "A man shalt not sleep with another man as if he were his property" 'cause y'know, that's basically what women are in that book. It would just be too demeaning to treat a man like a woman since men are god's special people after all while women are just..I dunno, door mats? Of course that's all done away with in the NT but somehow this passage lives on. Not really sure what's going on here..

It doesn't seem to me that those quotes can be proven to be specifically about homosexuality, there's room for a lot of ambiguity. What if they've just been badly translated and mis-interpreted and it's actually wrong to condem homosexuality as a sin?


Oh, and the question that's always bugging me. What about lesbians?
I'm pretty sure the OT doesn't mention them becase of the whole door mat status thing but is it ever mentioned somewhere?
The bible seems awfully keen on treating people differently based on their sex so how do you know female homosexuality is bad?

I'm not really trying to argue for or against anything here, I've, made my stance on the subject clear several times before. I'm just curious about the issues mentioned above.

ok ok don't use the banhammer musicman one last thing and i'm done :P
@Wolfie: I'm not insulting you and i'm not christian so i won't quote bible(i really don't feel like it) but a lot gays are christian and deny them something that you or I could have readily is rather close minded, I don't expect to change the way you think but you make yourself sound like an idiot when you say letting gays get married the way you would is infringing upon your rights, it's not harming you or anybody else so why deny anybody the right to marry in full decorum like you or I would

I only eat meat on special occasions and fried chicken doesn't really qualify as special-occasion-food so I guess I don't feel much at all about it since I don't eat it.
Never heard of this boycott place either.

Yeah, it's strictly American (at the moment..), so no small wonder.
