pig-skin

Christian people, I really want to know:

so, we all sin and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23) right?

and all sins and sinners are equal in God’s eyes (some loves are more important than other loves, Matthew 22:36-40, but I digress) right?

and there’s some pretty ridiculous things that are sinful, here’s a handful of examples:

-round haircuts (Leviticus 19:27)
-football (Leviticus 11:8, pig skin is unclean)
-tattoos (Leviticus 19:28)
-men who do not have testicles or penises cannot pray [those who’ve been castrated in crimes, those who have had cancer] (Deuteronomy 23:1)
-wearing jewelry (1 Timothy 2:9)
-wearing mixed fabric (Deuteronomy 22:11)

{PLEASE NOTE: if your argument is, “most of those are from the Old Testament and Christians don’t always view that as law”, know that the only verse against homosexuality is in the Old Testament}

okay so. if you’ve done or continuously do any of those things, or have a lifestyle of gluttony, greed, excess, or sloth, you’re sinning. knowingly, purposefully sinning, as a habitual act. and if all sins are the same, then you’re going to hell.

“no I’m not!!!!!”

oh… but you condemned gay people for sleeping with each other? you said that “God hates fags”, you said that gay people will burn in hell?

for you milder Christians who don’t actively oppose but just “can’t support that”, please look at your clothing tags. your bible verse tattoo. your little brother who loves football. your dad who sits on the couch and drinks beer after work.

why do you get to pick and choose which bible verse means more than another? why is that one verse the one that stands out? why is homosexuality the sin above all sins? why are gay clergy members shunned but the ones who commit the other sins listed above perfectly fine to preach the Word?

for the intelligent, loving, wonderful Christian people that I know are out there: why do you let people feed you this crap?

and finally, WHY does it matter so much? does your sexuality really define you as a person? does who you choose to touch genitals with really make or break your character?

I am so genuinely curious as to what goes through people’s minds when they make arguments against homosexuality.

mentions of gayness in the bible: 1
mentions of love in the bible: 500+

love wins. sorry if you can’t handle that.
