  1. I love the potential of this interpretation of Scriptures which have no doubt undergone many revisions over the centuries since they were written.

    I know that God created everything that was created and that without Him nothing that was created was created and I know that He created all things for His own pleasure.

    If God were not pleased with Gay people there would never have been any Gay people. I have always said that no weeds grow in the Great Garden of God but that all inside that garden are flowers and all are beautiful in His sight. Did not God say at the completion of all creation – - when He looked upon it all – - Did He not say “It is good?” (John at “American Liberal Times.)

  2. It only matters what the Christian denominations think about this interpretation – they made homosexuality wrong. To date, not a single Christian organization has formally said “it’s not wrong to be homosexual.” Not one. It remains a Christian belief until they declare it no longer is. they did that with slavery (some of them) and they can do it for this wrong, too.

    Ask them to. You’ll be disappointed by their response.
