I found this one day and thought it would be great to post some distant day down the road when I couldn't remember where I found it.
In the light of recent events, I wanted to reblog this screen cap of a Facebook conversation that sums up easily how many of us feel on the gay marriage issue. Click the image to read. It appears that it's getting cut off, and this reblog function doesn't work exactly right. Below the fold, I've typed the text out. Homosexuality is a sin, Lacey and it in black and white in the bible. Lacey responds: "So is not treating your body like a temple. And ladies should have their head covered. And in Deuteronomy, a marriage is only valid if the woman is a virgin, and she should be executed if she is not... and that anyone who commits adultery should be stoned to death. In Mark, divorce is prohibited. I assume for homosexuality, you're referring to Leviticus 18:6: "you shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female. It is an abomination. A similar verse occurs two chapters later, in Leviticus 20:13: "A man who sleeps with another man is an abomination and should be executed." Leviticus is a holiness code written 3,000 years ago. It also includes prohibitions against round haircuts, tattoos, working on the sabbath, wearing garments of mixed fabrics, eating pork or shellfish getting your future told, and even playing with the skin of a pig. (There goes football and astrology). I believe in morality, which is doing right regardless of what I am told.... not in religion, which is doing what I'm told regardless what is right. . You're welcome to your own interpretation of the Bible and of politics, of course, but for me, I need more than "the Bible says so" to justify certain things in this world and certainly to judge them."
