Pope was speaking to gay victim of abuse, but he's previously said he can't judge someone for being gay. Is he changing things, just a talker - or a heretic?

By Larry W. Gray Too bad you can't speak for yourself. And, since he says that "God hates all sin," and you're a sinner, I guess that means that God hates you.

By Rick Ryan God HATES SIN NOT people!!! LEARN!

By Larry W. Gray "Learn" what, that you're a sinner?

By Dan Anderson Rick - Do you REALLY believe God hates?

You DO know that hatred comes from ignorance and fear, right? So what is it that you feel God is ignorant about? What is it God is afraid of?

Learn! Your turn.

By Steve Orris I've done a fair amount of speaking on the topic. I guess I was lazy or pressed for time yesterday so I didn't come up with my own response. You wouldn't have wanted to read it anyway. BTW- your conclusion is incorrect in my opinion. Yes, God hates sin. He loves people. Do you have kids? You can love your child but hate something he does.

By Larry W. Gray If your child was gay, would God hate him, or just because of who he/she is? Being gay is not something that people do, it is who they are. But you know more about what God hates than I do. I was raised to believe in a God who loves, not hates. My Mother would not even allow us to use the word "hate." She told us that we could dislike something a lot, but never "hate" anything. She would say that since God was love, then hate would be the opposite of God, which is Satan. My Mother is the best Christian I know, and she does not go to church, she goes out in nature and talks to God there.

By Steve Orris Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

-Paul to the believers in Jesus in Corinth

And such were some of you. >>> Anyone can be changed from being (any of the above) through faith in Jesus. What did Jesus say to a sinner that repented? Your sins are forgiven. Go and sin no more. The pope tells people they don't need to repent or stop their sin. Don't listen to the pope. Don't even listen to me. Read the Bible for yourself and listen to the Spirit of God.

By Larry W. Gray Oh, "Anyone can be changed from being (any of the above) through faith in Jesus?" You think that a gay person can change their sexuality through faith? They can't change their sexuality anymore than you can change yours. But, it's awful convenient for you to judge others and insist that they do something that you don't have to. Take your fake faith and shove it, hypocrite! Let he who is among you without sin cast the first stone." JESUS. Show me ONE PLACE in the Bible that Jesus Christ made ANY comment specifically about homosexuals. maybe you should try a little humility and get off your judgmental, self-righteous soapbox.

By Steve Orris You threw the first stone Larry. Congratulations, you must be without sin.

By Larry W. Gray I never said I was free of sin, you are the hypocrite here. I am not the one pointing out the shortcomings of others, you are. I make no claim to be superior to others, the way that you do in your dismissive attitude towards those who you find so guilty of sin and declaring that they have little hope of the heaven that you evidently are so worthy of. But you are far from the first self-righteous "Christian" hypocrite, and you won't be the last.

By Vincent D'Emidio Steve is not a true Christian, he is a "christian" (a/k/a bible-banger) spelled with a lower-case "c". Bible-bangers don't know the first thing about Jesus. All they know is scripture without substance.

By Brian Sonntag You do know that the original text is miss translated and the whole "man shall not lay with another man" is actually Translates to " A man shall not lay with a younger Man" basically pedophilia.

By Steve Orris I am as unworthy of God's love as anyone.
Larry was wrong when he started here saying God must hate me.
But I think Larry does.
I miss the good old days when you could have a difference of opinion without getting attacked and ridiculed.
At the end of my life I will be judged by God, not by Larry or Vincent. That gives me much comfort.

By Larry W. Gray I don't hate you, I just think that you are a typical, garden variety, so-called "Christian" hypocrite.

Well then, stop attacking and ridiculing everybody...the MAJORITY, that is...when they don't agree with you.
