Homosexual wasn't even a concept or word until the 1800's.
That's a flat out bold faced lie, Loca. Even the staunch advocates of homosexuality would call you on that. It has had its place in every major culture throughout history, and I'm certain they had a word for it.
It seems like people who want to find a biblical justification for their actions or beliefs can find it. Instead of reading the Bible as a spiritual guide, they look to it only for a single Bible verse that they can quote in defense of their beliefs.
It's more than a single verse, Loca. I could show you a whole lot of verses in that direction...in the Old AND the NEW Testament.
Again, you're bigotted against these churches, Loca. That's hypocrisy at its finest.
Do you think that this church has never held funeral services for people who have committed these sins?
Now THAT is a salient point, and THAT is the issue here, honestly. I think the church has a right to uphold its values in the services it performs, but the question is, are they overlooking other sins while playing up homosexuality.
BUT...one of the issues here had to do with a video tribute that showed this guy with his lover. That was part of the memorial service and part of the objection. Do those who patronize prostitutes or lie have videos EXTOLLING these lifestyles at their funerals? The ONLY thing I would consider comparable to this would be if an unmarried heterosexual couple that had a sexual relationship without being married put a video tribute up. Would the church refuse their funeral as well as the homosexual couples? I don't know about THIS church, but I know of many churches that would.
By the way, Loca, I am glad that without knowing Hebrew, Latin, or Greek, YOU can claim to be enough of an authority to call conservative Christians liars.
