    I only used Homosexuality as an example because that was the example I read in the Old Testament OKJ , NKJ, & & NIV Bibles. Personally, I have a great niece is a married homosexual, and wants a sex change. I love har, so why would I be against or condemn others?

    Sorry, Fran. I don't buy your excuse. Your post specifically associates homosexuality with being degenerate. Why would you just parrot what you read without thinking first? Why would you post something that you now say you don't believe? Your post above is the equivalent of someone trying to backpedal after a racist comment by saying, "Some of my best friends are Black-how can I be racist?". I think you're being disingenuous.

    I apologize to everyone who takes offense at my post It was not intended to be that way. I was simply trying to help others see what I am seeing in today's society. Granted, human nature leads individuals who decide not to follow Godly principles as is stated in Romans 1 are unrighteous, wicked, filled with greed & envy, hatred, malice, deceit mean-spirited. They also gossip, arrogant, boastful, disobedient, disrespectful, untrustworthy, unloving, & unmerciful. In essence, anyone who acts this way acts as though there is no unrighteousness. I see our world sinking into this kind of behavior more and more, and is what I meant when I started this thread. I am very sorry that I used homosexuality as an example. Now PLEASE let us all put this subject to rest.

    That describes Trump pretty well.

    Why are you picking on him? Every human being to some extent (including me) is guilty of gossiping, is or has been disobedient in some way, plus look at the greed that is in many ? I'm just saying.

    Why defend him? He epitomizes the very word degenerate. His actions go far beyond gossip or disobedience. Try adultery, lying, bigotry, misogyny, etc. What does the Bible say about those things?

    I wasn't defending him perse'. Granted he is the leader of our country, and therefore he is perceived by many in a negative way due to his personality, but there is NOT a single human being who has ever lived who has not had faults. No human being is perfect. This is the issue I was getting at. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Picking on him?
    That's crazy talk.
    Trump is a corrupt and incompetent bully and liar.

    Why are Bible verses being tossed around as some kind of creed for life?

    I am not religious, nor do I consider myself Christian, or anything else.

    Personally, I don't care what the Bible, Torah or Koran have to say about anything.

    Believe in yourself people, and your own power. If that doesn't suit you, believe in science.

    The bible verses are important to the OP, that's why. Bigots have been preaching hate out of Holy books since the beginning of time. I feel it is important to show people where the error is in the false teaching.

So i will no longer post in this thread, but I appreciate you mentioning your views as I have mentioned mine. GOOD BYE!

    Yeah, I like that.
    For the record, picking on someone is calling them Pocahontas, or LITTLE Marco.

    Speaking honest opinions and facts about the highest elected official in the country is not picking on that fellow.
    It is expressing my opinion.
    My less than flattering opinion isn't fake news or mean, it is a view of the most corrupt and incompetent leader ever elevated in our politics.
