  •  did not live in OT times (0+ / 0-)

    that is not what God requires now...  homosexuals were not the only ones God required to be killed in OT times

    •  FYI, Protestants and Catholics BOTH (0+ / 0-)

      killed a lot of gays and women in the Middle Ages and Renaissance.  We Wiccans call it the Burning Times. They used the OT to justify it--that quote from Leviticus, and the ever-popular "thous shalt not suffer a witch to live" (incorrectly translated, BTW in KJV; it should read either  "poisoner of wells" or "evil sorcerer" rather than witch).

      Actually your deity hated a lot of people back then--pretty much everyone who wasn't a Hew.  Including innocent young virgins who had done anything to offend him, but whose daddy Jeptha made a stupid promise to sacrifice the first living creature he saw on returning home--it was his daughter, and unlike with Isaac, your loving god didn't intervene). To be hoenst the OT god is rather a vicious, sadistic asshole.

      The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
