University Student Senator Reads Scripture to Peers After Voting Against Funding for Homosexual Grad Ceremony

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — A student senator at Western Kentucky University recently read Scripture to his peers after voting against a proposal to fund a special ceremony for homosexual and transgender graduates.

While the student Senate ultimately voted 28-5 in favor of providing $250 for the “lavender graduation ceremony,” Dallas McKinney was among the few who said no.

A lavender graduation ceremony is defined as a “celebration that recognizes LGBTQ students of all races and ethnicities and acknowledges their achievements and contributions to the university as students who survived the college experience.” The $250 was for stoles, which are customarily either lavender or rainbow, representing homosexual pride.

McKinney, in explaining during a Student Government Association meeting why he voted against the proposal, read from Romans 1:24-27, which states that sexual behavior between those of the same sex is “against nature” and “unseemly” in God’s eyes, as it distorts His creation for the “natural use of the woman.”

“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature, and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet,” verses 26-27 read.

According to the student newspaper, the College Heights Herald, Queer Student Union President Jeremy McFarland rose to his feet and walked out as McKinney spoke. Senator Kenan Mujkanovic said that he observed some students smirking and making faces at McKinney as well.

“What hurt me the most sitting there during the meeting last week was seeing people smirking and making faces at [McKinney] when he was sharing his views,” he said. “I don’t agree with [McKinney], but I can respect his views.”

While some characterized McKinney’s comments as hateful or homophobic, the student told The College Fix this week that he is not fearful of homosexuals, but rather afraid for them on the Day of Judgment.

“I am not scared of the LGTBQ community, but rather scared for the LGTBQ community to meet God after living a lifestyle of sin,” McKinney said. “I believe I am representing the best interests of all students by helping them avoid the judgement of God for sin upon meeting Him.”

He added that he does not hate sinners, but is concerned about the destructiveness and consequences of sin.

“As I said in my speech on March 27th, it is the Bible that [is] judging them and not me,” McKinney said.

As previously reported, Christians believe that all men are born with the Adamic sin nature, and have inherent inclinations that are contrary to the law of God, being utterly incapable of helping themselves. It is why Jesus outlined in John 3:5-7 that men must be regenerated by the second birth.

“Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God,” he declared. “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.”

2 Corinthians 5:15-17 also teaches, “He died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him which died for them, and rose again. … Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

Jesus additionally outlined in Matthew 19:4-5, “Have ye not read that He which made them at the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife, and they twain shall be one flesh?’”

    The man is right to tell them the Bible as they may not hear it, otherwise. It is a good thing he did tell them the Bible, as he cared enough to do this. He could not, in good conscience support something that is an abomination to God.

    • Tristan Fry

      It isn’t a Bible college. It was inappropriate.

      • Amos Moses – He>i

        What is not appropriate is “a proposal to fund a special ceremony for homosexual and transgender graduates” ….. but then their AGENDA has never been about EQUALITY …… it is about and has always been about “WE ARE SPECIAL AND DESERVE A DIFFERENT STANDARD” ……. and if those opposed do not agree …… then “YOU ARE A BIGOT” …… and “THEREFORE WE CAN DISCRIMINATE AGAINST THE OPPOSED” …………… mostly and only because ….. “YOU ARE A BIGOT” …….. cause they said so ………..

        • james blue

          What special right are gays asking for that we do not get? What different standard?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            Jimmy Azul ….. look at what i posted …… and READ BETWEEN THE QUOTATION MARKS from the story ………….. /SMH ……….. tent pitched towards SODOM again ………

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “a proposal to fund a special ceremony for homosexual and transgender graduates”

            So please answer the question.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “a proposal to fund a special ceremony for homosexual and transgender graduates”

            you can read …. right ……

          • james blue

            That’s the entirety of your argument? That’s the whole “gay AGENDA” that has always been? to get some tassels funded?

            After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90’s Hardcover – May 29, 1989
            by Marshall Kirk (Author),‎ Hunter Madsen (Author)

            and it continues ………….. the lies are just to build and hide other lies ………. WHY do they require a SEPARATE ceremony ….. because they are BETTER than everyone else …….

          • TheKingOfRhye

            How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90’s

            If the attitudes of people like you are any indication, it still hasn’t happened yet.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            so all you have is epithet of a personal nature ……. a personal attack ….. when what is being attacked is the truth ….. but you do not seem to care about that …… okay ……… FYI ….. all you have is your own personal opinion of what my thoughts about homosexuals and transwhatevers are ….. and that makes you a BIGOT …………..

          • TheKingOfRhye

            FYI ….. all you have is your own personal opinion of what my thoughts about homosexuals and transwhatevers are

            Just the fact that you said “transwhatevers” pretty much confirms my opinion, thank you.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            right ……. BIAS confirmation …… when they can CLAIM to be a man or a woman or an animal or a stick of wood …… then what can it be but a WHATEVER …… and you are still a BIGOT for your BIAS being confirmed ……..

          • TheKingOfRhye

            then what can it be but a WHATEVER

            You won’t even call them people; you call them “it” and “whatever.” You equate them wanting to live as their preferred gender to “claiming to be a stick of wood.” Yet you call me biased and a bigot.

            Thank you for further proving my point.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            THEY call themselves things that are a lie …… you should be discussing this anomaly with THEM ….

          • james blue

            Again I ask …the entirety of your argument is that they are having some tassles funded?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            jimmy ….. they are asking for a SEPARATE ceremony …… as if the one provided is not up to their standard ….. and they are DEMANDING the school pay for it ….. because THEY are entitled to that PRIVILEGE ……. it is about THEIR need and desire to NOT be equal as they have claimed …………

          • james blue

            No they are not, they are holding an additional celebration, not a separate graduation ceremony and the student body simply voted to give a grant towards the cost of custom stoles.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            then let them go to Chuck E. Cheese and “celebrate” ……

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Oh, like you wouldn’t still be complaining about it??

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            What CEC does is their business …………….

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Is what a college does your business?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            it is a university taking public funds ….. so YUP ….. but that is not the point …… their lies about EQUALITY are ………. and they are lies ………….

          • TheKingOfRhye

            I just can’t understand why you’re so concerned about their requests for equality anyway; you clearly don’t even want to give them that.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Actually, it’s a state university, so unless you live in that state, they’re not getting any of your money anyway.

          • james blue

            Why? Don’t they pay the same amount of fees as everyone?

          • TheKingOfRhye

            and they are DEMANDING the school pay for it

            It was up for a vote and it passed 28-5. Do you even read these stories? And do you realize how much they “demanded” the school pay for their ceremony? $250. That’s what you’re getting so upset about? $250? You don’t want them to be able to get married, serve in the military, or even buy a damn wedding cake, and you’re getting upset about a school paying $250?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            makes it no less a demand ………….. they are not entitled to their DEMAND ……….

          • TheKingOfRhye

            They’re entitled to their request because it was voted on and approved.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            because they may have approved it makes it NO LESS A DEMAND for SEPARATE TREATMENT ….. because they are better than the rest of the students …… and only due to their pretended “status” of depravity ………..

          • TheKingOfRhye

            It’s already been pointed out to you by someone else; it’s not “separate treatment.”

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            it most certainly IS ……….

          • TheKingOfRhye

            You probably didn’t know this, but the ceremony is actually open to all students of the college.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            WHY do they require a SEPARATE ceremony

            They don’t. It’s not a separate ceremony. From WKU’s website: “The event is held during the Spring semester prior to the academic commencement ceremonies.” They also have a similar ceremony for “students who identify as Black, Hispanic/Latino, Asian, Native American, or Multiracial.”

          • TheKingOfRhye

            the AGENDA was published several years ago ….. the BOOK is available on Amazon …….. i have posted it PREVIOUSLY

            What, do you think that that book was immediately issued to all gay people in the country upon its release, and they all were compelled to follow whatever it said, or something?

            Here’s a quote I found from Hunter Madsen himself: (bolding added by me)

            [W]hile the book was widely read (and, in most cases, excoriated) by gay activists when it was first published, in 1989, and while a great many of its techniques have obviously been employed by activists since then, I see no evidence that the book itself serves as any kind of reference for the movement today.

            Doesn’t sound like it quite made it as the supposed “official gay agenda” you guys seem to think exists.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            the PROMINENT people who want that agenda pushed have used it …… and the rest cheered ….. as you do …………

          • TheKingOfRhye

            and the rest cheered

            Read that quote again. You know, the one from one of the authors himself. He said in most cases it was excoriated by gay activists.

            You know….I don’t even know; what IS the agenda the book is pushing, anyway?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “I don’t even know; what IS the agenda the book is pushing, anyway?”

            see …. all you have to do is READ THE TITLE ……. and it does not make one iota of difference if people at the time it was published disagreed with it ….. they used ….. and you cheered ….. and STILL DO ….. and DEFEND what they do ….. which is destroying this society ……. and you choose willful blindness to what was done ……

          • TheKingOfRhye

            So, you don’t know anything about it beyond the title, either, huh?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            we WATCHED it happen and YES i do ……….

          • TheKingOfRhye

            So tell me then: What’s so evil about it all? From the few reviews I’ve just now quickly read, it sounds like they were mainly suggesting different ways for gay people to get better PR.

          • Sinners don’t need better PR, they need Jesus.

          • ♥LadyInChrist♥InGodITrust♥

            Amen

          • Amos Moses – He>i

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Just gave up on trying to find a good answer to my last question, huh?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            you had no good question ….. and i gave you an answer … and as usual ….. you do not accept the answer …… not my problem ………… wanting anyone to stay a slave to a bad choice is TERRIBLE EVIL …… and that is what you want for them …..

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Uh, no, you didn’t give me an answer at all. I can’t accept or not accept an answer if you didn’t even give one.

          • Tristan Fry

            Well, duh. The reason they have to stay gay is because there’s no evidence anywhere that conversion therapies work, in fact there’s proof that they are damaging. You guys on the right need to get it through your heads that homosexuality isn’t an illness and therefore requires no cure.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            so you get to pass a law that limits THEIR rights ….. my … HOW DISCRIMINATING of you ……..

          • Tristan Fry

            They have the right to be homosexuals, just like they have the right to have whatever eye color they have. See how it works? Not a lot of choice involved, and you can thank Mother Nature for that.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            they have the right to CHANGE whether you agree or not as to their ABILITY …… and you do not get to DEMAND they do not ………….. so you want them in SLAVERY …………

          • Tristan Fry

            They have the right to mine green cheese from the moon, too. The fact that it’s impossible might possibly be a factor. But by all means, keep screaming discrimination.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            so is there any evidence for that or is that just your opinion ……… and could you be wrong ….. does not make any difference that your opinion is that it is impossible ……… you have no right to tell them they are not capable of change ….. and that is hateful bigotry ……..

          • Tristan Fry

            Well, if you want to present some evidence, feel free, but when Exodus International itself admits fraud then I think you might be a bit overdue to look at reality.

            You might also let your dark mistress know since she posted the same story and made the same claim about discrimination…UTTERLY ridiculous.

            Summer 1991. The Homosexual March in Washington D.C. where they voiced the things they wanted to accomplish. (Google it.) Among them was the legalization of Homosexual “marriage” and multiple partner “marriage”, homosexuality being accepted as normal in every facet of society, incest, pedophilia, beastialty.

            It’s horrifying how far this has come and how close it is to completion. I didn’t think my great great grandchildren would be alive to see any of it happen!

            It was when homosexuality was unlisted as a mental illness back around 1970 that the wave of openly being a homosexual really started.

            I was a liberal for over 20 years and bought the Liberal agenda but the Summer March in D.C. started me on the road to ultra Conservative. But it wasn’t until I became a Christian 17 years later and read the Bible that I finally, finally realized homosexuality is wrong.

            I pray for their lost souls each and every day.

            And don’t try calling me homophobic. That’s a word that’s thrown at people or places that doesn’t agree with the deviant behavior that it is.

          • Tristan Fry

            You may need to define “excoriate”. Not that dictionary definitions will count for very much in this case.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            I don’t think he pays attention to what I say anyway.

          • JP

            Homosexuals want to be recognized for their sexual preferences. They want to be affirmed.
            Those that refuse to do can be sued or ostracised.

          • james blue

            How is that any different from heterosexuals?

          • JP

            What heterosexuals want recognition for their sexual preferences?

          • james blue

            All of them. Marriage recognition for example and all the spousal benefits that come with it.

          • JP

            They don’t deserve it because they don’t have a marriage. To have a marriage you must have a husband and wife. Only man can be a husband and a woman a wife. Without each in a marriage together you don’t have a marriage.

          • james blue

            What does that have to do with my answer to your question?

          • Tim Matter

            In the U.S. they can officially be married in the eyes of the government now. Churches are free to not recognize their marriage. It is the government that has the final say in most of the rights we have.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            They don’t deserve it because they don’t have a marriage.

            You know, you’re responding to James’s answer to your question about heterosexuals…so, you technically just said heterosexuals don’t have marriage.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            They want to be affirmed.

            Who doesn’t?

        • TheKingOfRhye

          but then their AGENDA has never been about EQUALITY

          But you don’t even want to give them that, anyway.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            they HAD it ……. now they DEMAND equality PLUS …… and your statement is a lie ………

      • WitnessMan

        It is never inappropriate to proclaim the truth of the Word of God. Never.

        • Tristan Fry

          And how would you feel if all religions felt that way?

          • There is only one Lord, one faith and one baptism. There is only one true living God and He is our Creator and Father of Christ Jesus born of a virgin.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            That doesn’t change the fact that other religions and people who practice them exist.

          • Never said it did.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Then I don’t see how what you said was relevant to what you were responding to.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            you are trying to make christianity equal to other “religions” ….. and it AINT ………..

          • TheKingOfRhye

            They’re equal in that they exist, and there are people who practice them who you and I and everyone else might just have to deal with sometimes. That was my point.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope …… they are not equal and never will be ….. there is truth and there is lie ….. there are no competing versions of the truth ….. there is no your truth and my truth and their truth …… and the truth exists whether you accept it or not ……… that is the only point …..

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Seriously, do you even read what I say? Did you just read the words “They’re equal” and then your brain stopped functioning? All I said was that other religions and people who practice them exist. Oh, and I also said we might have to deal with those people from time to time. Do you disagree with any of those statements??

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            YUP ….. that first lie NULLIFIES anything that follows ………….

          • TheKingOfRhye

            YUP ….

            I’ll take that as your answer to my question about if you only read the first two words of my sentence. That’s the only way your response makes even the slightest bit of sense, after all.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            as an atheistic agnostic ….. you have no expectation of any logical and stable responses or sense ……. i guess Solipsism is your friend ……………

          • TheKingOfRhye

            you have no expectation of any logical and stable responses or sense

            “so all you have is epithet of a personal nature ……. a personal attack” (as someone said a few days ago)

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            that is not a personal attack ….. that is YOUR DESCRIPTION of YOURSELF …… and the LOGICAL CONCLUSION of YOUR worldview …… which you apparently do not like ……

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Apparently I have to try this again. My statement was that other religions and their followers exist. Those were the only ways I was saying in which they are equal. Do you dispute either of those things?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            they are not equal in their existence …… and they are not equal in that they chose to follow as opposed to God chose them …… there is no equality between christianity and any other … but if you are trying to say that “all people are people” …… that is a semantically NULL statement ……. so what is the point ……

          • TheKingOfRhye

            My point was that since those other religions exist, Christians, and everyone else, have to take those into consideration when they might have people who follow them to deal with. (or of course, people who follow none) In the conversation that started that all, it seemed like the person I was making that comment to didn’t even want to consider that. Like if you want Bible studies or whatnot in schools, how’d you feel if it was Koran study, or even some other religion? Or even people who teach different things about Christianity than you might like?

            I don’t know where you got this idea this idea that I was trying to say Christianity is the same as other religions. I was just saying they are equal in the fact they all exist.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            God is sovereign ….. God chooses those who belong to Him …… God would rather they listened to Him ……. but God is not here to save everyone …… there is no universal salvation ………. if those people hear those lies and follow them …… that is their choice and if they truly belong to God they will flee ….. so i care not one wit if they preach the Koran or whatever ….. i will still call it the lie that it is ………….. and speak the truth about …. but i do not fear their lies ….. mostly …. because God is sovereign ….. and He will have all that belongs to Him ……. and the rest do not ……………. so my question to YOU is …… WHAT ARE YOU AFRAID OF if the bible is taught ……. because apparently you are afraid of something ………

            so i care not one wit if they preach the Koran or whatever

            Even if, for example, you had children in a public school, and they came in at lunchtime? (especially since, according to what someone else keeps saying, all the kids would have to do is say some magic words or something, and poof, they’re Muslims)

            WHAT ARE YOU AFRAID OF if the bible is taught ……. because apparently you are afraid of something ………

            I’m not “afraid” of that at all. It’s just not the proper place for it. It would be a silly thing to be afraid of anyway, since even without anyone doing it in a school, the Bible is taught in plenty of other places. Actually, here’s a thought…let’s have Bible classes in all the schools…but taught from a neutral perspective. Let the kids make up their own minds about it.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            even if …. God is still sovereign ….. it is quite possible my child is not one of His ….. it is not up to me to override His plan …. it is my job to accept His decision ….. God will not lose even one that belongs to Him ….. and no one can remove them from Him …… that is hard for many christians to accept …. they want to be in charge ….. like you ……….

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Hm. Well, that’s not a common attitude for people around to have.

          • Tristan Fry

            All religions say that their God is the only one.

          • I thought you said that you are a Christian?

          • Tristan Fry

            Yes, and?
            I’m not so arrogant as to believe I’m the only person allowed to have a religion.

          • Actually being a Christian is not about having a religion. It is all about having a personal one on one relationship with God through His son Christ Jesus.

          • Tristan Fry

            I think you’ll find that Christianity is a world religion. And how you relate to your deity doesn’t make it any less of a religion.

          • This is what God says about religion.
            —————–
            James 1:26-27 New King James Version (NKJV)
            26 If anyone among you[a] thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless. 27 Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            A definition of religion I just read that sounds about right to me:

            a systematic set of beliefs, rituals and codifications of behaviour that revolves around a particular group’s worldview (views about the world at large and humanity’s place in the world).

            How does Christianity not fit that description?

        • ♥LadyInChrist♥InGodITrust♥

          Amen.

        • Brian Curtis

          Remember that when Muslims are preaching to your kid.

          • Muslims have nothing to do with God.

          • Brian Curtis

            Ahh, so you want a special preaching pass for Christians only. Sorry, you’re in the wrong country for that. In America, all religions are treated equally.

      • Susan Perelka

        God told us to speak His truth from the rooftop for ALL to hear. No one is forcing you to believe it. God loves you and wants to save you. That is the message. All have sinned and fall short of His Glory. We rebelled against God and in His MERCY, He is willing to forgive us, and rescue us, IF we will accept the FREE GIFT He is offering through His beloved Son Jesus, who shed His blood to save us, to pay in full OUR sin debt, so that we can be reconciled with God and have peace with God, no longer under Gods judgement, but saved by His Grace (undeserved favor). That is AMAZING GRACE. That is AMAZING LOVE!

        • ♥LadyInChrist♥InGodITrust♥

          In Jesus name I agree.

        • Faithwalker

          Amen!

      • It is NEVER inappropriate to stand up for your Christian beliefs.

        • Tristan Fry

          Great, until you run into someone who feels it’s never inappropriate to stand up for their Muslim beliefs. If you respected public areas enough to have them free of religion for the benefit of EVERYONE I don’t think you’d argue it too much.

          • I have zero interest in standing up for Satan and the evil he does.

          • Tristan Fry

            And they feel the same way about you. Don’t you get it? You all think you’re right and the other guy is wrong. That’s why we try to leave public areas out of this kind of squabbling.

          • Michael Russell

            We’ll you better look in the mirror then brother for the devil is within us just as God is also within us, it is we that must choose.

            Much love and peace. ????? Namaste.

          • God and Satan do not occupy the same house. Light always overcomes the darkness. Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. I am a new creation in Christ Jesus, the old has gone away. I am a born again child of God and the evil one is no longer within me or a part of me.

          • Michael Russell

            Light always overcomes the darkness? What world are you living in brother? It seems to me that you can read, as you can write, so maybe you should put this skill to use by reading some news about what’s going on around us. At the moment, unfortunately, darkness is overcoming the light. The world will remain this way until we can all finally put aside our petty, so called differences and realize that we are all loved and that we are all love. We must all stand together if we ever intend to end this ridiculousness.
            Every religion in the world believes in a God, some say that there are lesser gods under authority of a higher god, we call these angels. Some have two or even three main gods, so do we. Oh of course we say the three are one but trinity means three. I myself know there is only one God for the whole world, he just takes different forms for different cultures. Have you read any other sacred texts other than the Bible? I find once we strip away all the fairy tale nonsense from these stories that they all teach the same thing, morality and love. We may not be comfortable with all other religious practices but our own religion, Christianity, eats the flesh and drinks the blood of our God, at least some do, I myself do not partake of this ritual.
            As to the devil living inside of us, every person on this planet contains the spirit of God, even if it is only a tiny spark within them. Just as every person in this world has evil inside them, even if it is only a tiny spark. Once we have conquered this spark of evil within us we are able to ascend. This is our job, this is our purpose, here on this earth, to become gods ourselves. Does Jesus not say we shall do all that he has done and more? And Psalm 82 says that we are all gods. This is the only way that we will, once and for all, conquer evil.

            Much love and peace. ????? Namaste.

            Or, in other words, you don’t believe in freedom of religion. Or, rather, you want freedom of religion for your religion, but no others.

      YOUR SINs Are a Abomination to God. Judge Not lest Ye be Judged. Those without sin Cast the first stone. You focus on you own Sins Against God. I will worry about my sin.

  • Amos Moses – He>i

    “If sinners will be damned, at least let them leap to hell over our bodies. And if they will perish, let them perish with our arms around their knees, imploring them to stay. If hell must be filled, at least let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go there unwarned and unprayed for.

    • Michael Russell

      You sir are definitely a bigot and that really surprises me for by your picture it seems that you yourself are black. Have we not seen enough discrimination in this world? It just so happens that I am homosexual myself and you know what? God still made Himself known to me last year. I admit I don’t practice this any longer but only because I am single and don’t believe in indiscriminate sex. Unfortunately none of the media ever covers people like me, and we are many, probably the majority of gay people are like me but all you people ever see are the gay parades and the drag queen shows and transgendered shows so you think we’re all a bunch of perverts. I was born this way sir as I remember thinking of boys when I was a child. I was also born Christian. I was also born again in the spirit, are you? Have you been touched by God sir? I have.
      All I, and most other homosexuals, want is to find love not lust, love. Although I believe that I will never find a love to compare to the love that God shows me He has for me.
      I certainly don’t believe in the bible that you all profess was inspired by God. How do you all say you know this? Because that’s what the book says ????????? huge red flag ?. There are soooooo many things in the bible that have been proven wrong, by Christian archeologists. Did you know that the names for the first four gospels, Mathew, Mark, Luke and John, were not even named till two hundred years after Jesus supposedly rose from the dead. And it wasn’t even decided if Jesus was divine until more than three hundred years after. Wake up and do some research brother and don’t just believe what your brainwashed pastors and priests are telling you. As the book says, come out of her my people, this means the churches as they are all corrupt.

      Much love and peace.
      ????? Namaste.

      P.S.
      Namaste simply means the divine in me recognizes the divine in you.

      • Amos Moses – He>i

        ” It just so happens that I am homosexual myself and you know what? God still made Himself known to me last year.”

        your choice of SIN is not relevant to the truth …….. so if God “revealed” Himself to you ….. did he reveal that the homosexual act in any for INCLUDING that one you imagine in your head is a SIN …………. because that fantasy is just as much SIN and the act …… and no pretend marriage alters the fact that it is STILL SIN ………….

        “There are soooooo many things in the bible that have been proven wrong,”

        SOOOOO ….. my guess is NO ….. and the “god revealed” to you is just your own IDOLATRY ….. because if He REALLY revealed Himself to you ….. you would not be here TRASHING THE SCRIPTURES …………..

        • Michael Russell

          So I see you don’t even believe the book, 1 Corinthians 3:16, “do you know that you are a temple of God and that the spirit of God dwells in you.” There are several other verses as well but this one is my favourite. These scriptures are not original, they have been so tampered with they don’t even represent the original stories any longer. And as I said earlier, if you want to believe this book is inspired by God then it is your intelligence that would be in question for the only place that tells you this is the book itself. Neither archeology nor history support the veracity of this book. Faith is a wonderful virtue when it is cultivated in something that is at least believable.

          Much peace and love. ????? Namaste.
          Be blessed.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            that has nothing to do with the divine being in us unless and UNTIL Christ comes there to dwell ….. and it is apparent by your statements you do not accept Him … Nor has He accepted you ……….

        • Michael Russell

          By the way, this has never been my “choice.” It is God who made me, so it must have been His choice.

          • Romans 3:9-23 New King James Version (NKJV)
            All Have Sinned
            9 What then? Are we better than they? Not at all. For we have previously charged both Jews and Greeks that they are all under sin.
            10 As it is written:
            “There is none righteous, no, not one;
            11
            There is none who understands;
            There is none who seeks after God.
            12
            They have all turned aside;
            They have together become unprofitable;
            There is none who does good, no, not one.”[a]
            13
            “Their throat is an open tomb;
            With their tongues they have practiced deceit”; [b]
            “The poison of asps is under their lips”; [c]
            14
            “Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.”[d]
            15
            “Their feet are swift to shed blood;
            16
            Destruction and misery are in their ways;
            17
            And the way of peace they have not known.”[e]
            18
            “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”[f]
            19 Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. 20 Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
            God’s Righteousness Through Faith
            21 But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, 22 even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all[g] who believe. For there is no difference; 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

    It’s best to leave the cities to the sodomites and find a home and good church in the country.

    • nineleven

      Unfortunately, they will not leave you alone in the country. Look up “Paul Weyrich, letter to conservatives”–he was a very influential conservative leader in the l990s. He basically advocated conservatives to develope their own communities and schools and institutions where the liberal worldview could be held in check. Unfortunately he was proven wrong because of the aggressive and corrosive characteristics of evil in this generation. It might have been different if the church of Christ actually stood up and openly resisted the homosexual agenda but we coddled the behaviour and made room for them within the body of Christ and within seminaries.

      • Michael Russell

        Another raging bigot. Not a surprise as Christians like you have been killing people for a couple thousand years now if they didn’t agree with your doctrines and beliefs. You should introduce yourself to Amos. I truly do hope more people that truly know and love God will wake you church goers up. You all think God is somewhere, out there. Your book even tells you that God is within you. And then you all think that the devil is, out there. Why would evil be out there if love is within you. The devil is within us all. It is we that must choose who to listen to. This kind of discriminate behaviour is not what Jesus seems to have taught according to the book, and trust me I have studied this interesting book intensively.

        Much love and peace, may God lead you to truth.

          Micheal, which god are you referring to in your blessing?

          • Michael Russell

            There is only one true God. This is the God Jesus refers to as father and not the God that indiscriminately murdered women and children in the Old Testament.

          • nineleven

            Micheal, the new testament says that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever more. the God of the Hebrews and Prophets is the same and never changes. not sure where you are getting your doctrines from but it does not reflect the way of the Saviour or of the complete scriptures. Jesus fulfills all of the law and all of the Prophets spoke of His coming to die for sinners and to be raised to life. He said “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me.” The Gospel of John 14.6 Everything He said spoke glowingly and without hesitation confirming the God of the Hebrews and their history. God is a God of descriminate choosing throughout history. He is not inclusive like the world wants God to be, but He is exclusive. He always choses one way, one path, one way to Him and that pathway and door is through His Messiah, Jesus the Son.

          • Michael Russell

            I do agree that the way to God is through Jesus’ teachings, unfortunately those teachings have been corrupted by those who would enslave us all. Try reading the gospel of Thomas. The Catholic Church hasn’t had a chance to corrupt this text.

    Good and faithful servant. They have heard about the peace God is offering them through Christ. As long as God is giving them breath, they have a chance to accept the amazing gift that God is offering them. The seed has been sown, I hope that there was good soil to receive it and that they will bear fruit for Gods glory. Those who have rejected it and continue to do so, will stand condemned before God in the day of judgement. However, we are to keep WARNING them, there is always a chance they may repent at some point and be saved. Set free from satans grasp and placed in the loving arms of Jesus. Sow the Word, wait for the harvest to come. Some will reject it, but a few will accept it. Press on, persevere, speak the Word in season and out of season, fight the good fight of faith, speak His truth boldly in love and with patience and gentleness. Let them see Christ in us. To God be all the GLORY! AMEN

    • Michael Russell

      Another brain washed churchgoer, what a shame. Satan, my dear sister is not a name. According to other ancient texts Satan means evil spirit. The devils name is actually Hal El in Hebrew or Enlil as he is known in the ancient, older than Hebrew, summerian tablets written in Sanskrit which is the oldest known language. Enlil was Yahweh’s brother. The Bible has so corrupted the original story it’s sad. Enlil and Yahweh were not Gods my dear, they were simply a technologically advanced civilization that lived before the flood. Genesis is the story of how they restored the earth after the flood and then created a lower species than themselves to do all the tending of livestock and fields. These people/gods still rule the earth today and they keep the true knowledge of God hidden from us. Of course no one can keep God from us, but they think they can and actually they have done a better job at it than they should have been able to do. This is why they make the serpent seem to be evil for it is the serpent wisdom that will lead us to God. By this I simply mean the activation of kundalini or the energy centres in our bodies. The one true God has definitely been around for way longer than 6000 years. Heck the flood happened about 10,500 BCE according to, Christian, archeologists. Try reading something other than Jewish fairy tales.

          Wolves are one of God’s most beautiful creatures, so thank you for the comparison. As to being either a teacher or a prophet, I don’t aspire to either. And I never said that I reject scriptures I merely said that they are not inspired by God, for I truly believe that the teachings of Jesus are beneficial to all those who wish to ascend. Mind you, you truly must be able to read between the lines, so to speak, for these writings have been corrupted over the last eighteen hundred years or so.
          You should try reading the Baghavad Gita or the sacred texts of the Buddha, the Sutras. I have found that the Buddha taught all the same things as Jesus. Not only that but the Buddha himself predicted the coming of Jesus.
          Unfortunately I don’t believe you will read these other texts, you seem to me like the kind of person who believes the Bible holds the only truth, which, if true, is very sad for you.

            It’s very sad that you seem to believe every word of the book but can’t seem to see beyond it. The one true God needs no book to make himself known to us. As I said in a previous post, the only way that you “know” this book is inspired by God is written in the book itself, and if that doesn’t immediately raise a red flag for you then you are completely lost. And please don’t put words in my mouth for I mean what I say for it was Christians and not anti-christians that murdered millions of people simply because they didn’t believe what the Christians were trying to force down their throats. You people are so disconnected from the spirit, it’s really very sad for we are spirit beings living in a material world. I will certainly pray for you my brother.

            Ok, so let’s start with what your precious book says, thou shalt not murder. And then this god tells them to stone their sons if they disobey and stone adulterers, is this not murder?

          By the way, I don’t wear wool, too scratchy. So no sheeps clothes for me.

    That’s neither here nor there, really. I’m talking about people being biased against transgender people in general.

    • JP

      No such thing as “transgender”. What these people suffer from is gender dysphoria.

      • TheKingOfRhye

        Yeah….that’s really nothing but a fancy way to say “transgender.”

        • JP

          “Transgender” is a disengous term that is a lie. No one is able to turn from one gender to another. That is scientifically impossible for a human being to do that.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Now you’re just confusing gender with sex. The two words are often used interchangeably, but when we’re talking about transgender people, they mean two different things.

          • JP

            I’m not confused but people who think that when a guy puts on a skirt that makes him a girl are confused.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            I’ve talked to a few transgender people; they seemed like they were pretty clear on what gender they were. “Confused” is not the word I would use.

          • Tristan Fry

            In my experience, those lacking empathy are those most likely to call others “confused”. It’s pure xenophobia.

  • sexual behavior between those of the same sex is “against nature” and “unseemly” in God’s eyes, as it distorts His creation for the “natural use of the woman.”

    Interesting on two fronts. 1) So, if God thinks that two people of the same gender have sex, it is “unseemly” and a distortion of “His” creation? Hmm, so this again begs the question, why does “He” allow intersexuals to be born? 2) I find it very interesting that such an act is not the “natural use of a woman.”

    Huh? That’s what women are used for? Then, I suppose since my wife is no longer so inclined to be “used” in that fashion, then she is useless? I can discard her and find one that still functions?

      Yet , another So-christian with HATE. Love is God’s blessing Hate is
      Satan’s curse !.. LGBT can be Christians. You mind your own Sin. Those
      without SIN cast the first Stone.. Just not lest Ye be judged. Marriage
      is Not about Sex, gender or race it is about loving someone so much you
      want to be with them and walk as one. Why don’t you focus on YOUR SINS ????

      • Huh? Are you sure you read my post carefully? What is a “So-christian? and where do I show hate? My mention of intersexuals is to show that everyone cannot be judged by their outward appearance. Sexual orientation is GENETIC (genotypical), and is not always in sync with what one appears to be physically (phenotypical).

        The human genome runs a full spectrum of sexual predispositions. That’s solid science. It says that people cannot choose their sexual predispositions. Those are formed before birth. Morally and ethically, it says that people should not be punished for having been born to a minority where different sexual predispositions and/or physical anomalies.

        Concerning my comment about women, I’m making fun of the utterly insane view that women are THINGS to be used–in a “proper” way, of course.

        Please provide support from God’s Word, the Holy Bible, which supports homosexuality/sodomy, man-devised marriage, fornication and adultery.

        Might you be referred to I Corinthians 6: 9-11 and Galatians 5:19-21, Holy Bible. What I think and what others think about our favorite sin, or any sin, period, is irrelevant as God has clearly defined what is acceptable behaviour and what is not.

        It’s no hate to share with someone heading into a bridge washed-out area to turn around. Rather, it is love and compassion shown towards those deceived by their own hearts and via the Devil and his own… Haters are those who lie and attempt to conceal or diminish truth as God has decreed by any means possible… It’s all in His Word. And any honest man/woman seeking to know truth can read it himself.

      Focus on YOUR SINS , let other Focus on their sins. Plain and simple text. The is not a Human that has ever Lived the is without sin. Jesus is God in Human form but still every much GOD on Earth. So since you are not God on Earth then Sit down You sinner.
