For the first time in nearly a month (gasp) my browser found itself sauntering over to the confines of JWZone, and found this thread, which is at once laughable and despicable:
Here are some "highlights":
" The Bible condemns homosexuality yes, but it's not condoning acts of violence against them."
Cough. Wasn't that sort of thing grounds for being stoned to death (an especially pleasant way to die) back in the time of the Bible?
The thing they are missing is that the Bible condems many worldly practices that are considered rights in this world not just homosexuality and as have been mentioned at no place in the Bible does it tell us to practice violence against practicers of sin. Just to not associate with them.
Incorrect. "Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live" comes to mind, amongst others. Isn't it sad when you know your Bible better than the very Dubs defending it?
And I suppose the Wiccans will protest next because the Bible says that "witches" should be terminated! - Exodus 22:18
Someone is always trying to undermine the Bible with some complaint or another. Awhile back, some Jews were saying that the "New Testament" is "antisemitic."
No doubt the homosexual thing is the complaint du jour. After all, complaining about the Bible is much easier than living by it.
WTF! I don't see any of those posters sacrificing sheep or stoning witches to death! Talk about your high-grade hypocrisy! And what's up with that alien icon?!!!!
What it comes down to is that people in the world dont like to be told what to do.
Well, that would be correct, SciGal.
I don't want to be told what to do, either. But I am pleased to do what is upright in Jehovah's eyes.
Jehovah considers sheep sacrifices "upright", dude. Furthermore, I'm willing to bet money that you don't have a sacrificial stone and knife lying around in your backyard, or any sheep for that matter. So tell me that part again about doing what is upright in Jehovah's eyes?
I find homosexuality to be repulsive and I choose not to associate with people who engage in activities I find repulsive any more than the ordinary business of the day requires me to. I also don't hang out with sword swallowers or nudist recording artists or known pedophiles or the clergy of any of the religions of christendom.Oh, that's rich, RICH! For all this poor poster knows, he could be hanging out with dozens of pedophiles. Hell, they might even be his Elders! HAHAHAHA! This is just sad. Now who's repulsive?
I do not want to be standing next to a homosexual when Jehovah exercises judgement on them
Don't worry, budgies only attack you if you are directly within their field of vision.
and there isn't a law in the world that can set that moment back so much as a full second.
Ehehehe. Whenever that moment will be, that is. Any day now, it seems! Let's just say, Yours Truly doesn't lose much sleep worrying about it
As I see things, the less time I spend with homosexuals, the fewer ticks of the clock I am vulnerable to a mis-aimed hailstone.
Surely Jehovah would have perfect aim? Him being omnipotent and all?
MrLinux.....I know you aren't serious about the "mis-aimed hailstone."
I doubt Jehovah will miss.
See, even GrannyMoogie agrees with me
*sighs* It never ends, does it?
