    I do believe serial killing is disliked even more by your God…. Thou shalt not kill…. you know one of the top ten…..

    Also, our nation and our laws were based on the Bible. Y’all are the ones trying to force your views on us by trying to eliminate our Christian heritage esp. the ACLU

    It sets the government up to judge thoughts as well as actions, a realm in which the government has no jurisdiction

    We already have motives figured into our current laws… nothing new here

  • HellfirePreacherman 10/27/2009 9:11pm

    Only God has that position

  • HellfirePreacherman 10/27/2009 9:15pm

    Then we need to repeal those laws. Just because something is legal doesn’t make it right. Government SHOULD NOT JUDGE MOTIVES

    Ok so if you accidently kill someone you should get the same punishment as someone who plots to do it… that’s nuts

    The Bible specifically makes exceptions for unintentional murder. Don’t be ridiculous

    You never have answered why you hate gays

  • HellfirePreacherman 10/27/2009 9:19pm

    Yes I did, can you read? look back on the post

    The bible tells you to hate a lot of sins equally… have you been divorced? I guess we shouldn’t allow divorced people to serve either

    krystaltgirl 10/27/2009 9:26pm

    Maybe we should have divorcee bashing too or how about people who cast the first stone bashing like yourself

  • HellfirePreacherman 10/27/2009 9:25pm

    The Bible Specifically Calls you queers reprobate (at the class of animals) and your sin is one of the only sins God burned up whole cities for

    The sin of sodomy genius wasn’t anal sex … sorry and yes bible scholars agree with that. It was being rude to strangers.. very well know…

  • HellfirePreacherman 10/27/2009 9:30pm

    I’m amazed at all the ‘Judge not’ and ‘casting the first stone’ and ‘God is love’ you **** know about the Bible but how little else you know

    I was raised christian until I came to realize that the only real true religion is science

    The bible was an attempt to make sense of the magnitude of a world early peoples couldn’t yet explain… and the jokes on you christians cause you have been led astray

    The destruction of Sumatra wasn’t God it was an under sea earthquake… two thousand years ago it would have been the hand of god

  • krystaltgirl 10/27/2009 9:40pm

    Those stories of distruction in the bible weren’t the act of God… they were natural disasters that still occur today

  • krystaltgirl 10/27/2009 9:44pm

    And like I said if you want to go on believing your comic book, the puppet in the sky and casper go for it, but America doesn’t base its laws on fairy tales

  • krystaltgirl 10/27/2009 9:59pm

    Oh and P.S. I’m not sure that born again thing really took for you.. you might think about trying again!

    To those of you that don’t understand why the LGBT community have pushed so hard for this bill all you need to do is look over the comments here and on every far right conservative christian website to understand the need for these laws. These wacko’s hide behind taken out of context Bible verses to justify their own personal brand of hate and every member of my community has to be ever vidulent to the threat of these self rightous nut jobs whom take it upon themselves to be judge, jury, and executioner of gay Americans. I’m all for religous freedoms, but when you think your religous wacko beliefs are what everyone else should have to follow.. well then you and I will butt heads. Keep your talibangelical christian beliefs in your anti christ churches thank you! Just look at the comments of Hellfirepreacherman for proof of what i’m saying. He would rather hang out with a serial killer than someone gay… this bastard needs help before he hurts someone!!!

  • HellfirePreacherman 10/28/2009 9:14am

    The Bible isn’t just a book of stories, it was written by men inspired by God, making it perfect and inerrant

  • HellfirePreacherman 10/28/2009 9:16am

    The sin of sodomy was not rudeness, it was homosexuality (if you studied the word ‘know’ in Bible context, you’d see that.

    Sorry but your just plain wrong on this one… true bible scholars have long said that this was twisted to mean homosexuallity long before you and I walked the earth… The men who came for lot intended to physically harm him sorry moron!

  • HellfirePreacherman 10/28/2009 9:19am

    The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah was not just a natrual disaster, it was judgement for their sin (BTW, God can use ‘natrual disasters’ to judge a people) not every natrual disaster is punishment for sin, but the Bible says that the Destruction of Sodom was ( by the way, it was a supernatrual disaster, when’s the last time you heard of fire falling from the sky and burning down cities natrually?
