Homosexuality is an abomination upon the Lord God. He hates the act, but not the person. Though the person partaking in it is a sinner. Now don't think that I am a homophobe, or that I hate homosexuals, I'm not and I don't. To me homosexuality is an act; it is the willful act(s) of sexual and lustful gratification with someone of the same sex. We all have sexual feelings, that is so we procreate and continue our existence, but it is meant to be between a married Man and Woman. Now if you don't find someone of the opposite sex that is ok. We all have to have companionship with a close person, but if that person is someone of the same gender then that is all right, you are just friends.. But when you turn that innocent companionship into acts of homosexuality then you are in the wrong and have tainted that friendship. I am a male, and I have many male friends that I am close too, but I don't have the feelings that I do towards a woman with them because one, I am not programmed that way, and two I know it's a sin. The same goes for heterosexual (straight) people; it is a sin for man and woman to have sex out of wedlock. Those two are acting on their sexual and lustful needs, but are sinning because God has commanded us to wait until holy matrimony. With this said, it brings me to my second point: condemning homosexuality is not a hate crime, it can't be. I know a few people who are very close to me and I love that are homosexuals; I don't hate them. I hate the acts they do, not them themselves. I don't care if you are born a homosexual or heterosexual, when you act in a sinful manner you are sinning. I don't know how else to say it. But don't say that I hate you, I don't. Anno Domini-
As of recently the time stamp to signify the era in which a year took place (B.C., A.D.) is in the process of being converted to C.E. and B.C.E. Why? Because our liberal system is afraid to offend those of non-Christian beliefs or anyone that doesn't like things to stay the way they have been for 2000 years. A.D. stands for "Anno Domini"
, "the year of the Lord."
And B.C. is "Before Christ"
. But now it is slowly changing to C.E.-Common Era (a.k.a. A.D.) and B.C.E.-Before Common Era (a.k.a B.C.). This is stupid, every documentation of every event in history before our Lord's birth was recorded in A.D. or B.C. And now, 2000 years later, afraid of offending a few people they want to go and change the system. Does this mean that we now should go and erase the A.D. in the Constitution and every legal document henceforth; wouldn't that be more P.C? This is ridiculous, come on people; grow some common sense, please!
(Please don't send me hate mail for this, right now I am venting and just want to complain, thanks.) More to come...
