(RNS) Chicago Cardinal Francis George has launched a last-ditch campaign to convince the lame-duck Illinois legislature not to legalize same-sex marriage, saying that government “has no power to create something that nature itself tells us is impossible.” By David Gibson.

    I have always believed Homosexuality to be a disorder of the brains understanding of symbolism ?thus a neuroses.Many Homosexuals of the past have worked out the routes of this disorder with the help of good council ears are well know and have families and are leading a normal life.

    The homosexual neurosis is one thing but out right defiance of GODS law and commandments is sheer hate and rebellion against the truth.Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft it is a very demonized position they are in.PRAY PRAY PRAY

    THEY ARE NOT GAY.THEY ARE SODOMITES…………….REMEMBER SODOM AND GOMMORA IT WILL NOT ONLY BE LOTS WIFE THAT WAS TURNED INTO A PILLAR OF SALT,IT WILL BE A CHASTISEMENT WE CANNOT EVEN COMPREHEND THAT WE WILL ALL SUFFER FOR THE SINS OF THE PRESENT WORLD WE LIVE IN.

  2. @Kenneth: At first I thought you were a bigoted dinosaur of a human being who based his morality on a literal reading of a fairy tale but then your tasteful use of CAPS LOCK totally convinced me.~

  3. @Kenneth I have always believed Christianity to be a disorder of the brain’s understanding of cause and effect; thus, a neurosis. Many Christians of the past have worked out the roots of this disorder with the help of good educators, and now are well known and have families and are leading a normal life.

    The Christian neurosis is one thing, but outright defiance of Christ’s commandment to love all people is merely hate and rebellion against social norms. Closing one’s eyes against love is as the sin of pride: it is a very dangerous position they are in. PRAY, PRAY, PRAY!

    THEY ARE NOT CHRISTIANS. THEY ARE HYPOCRITES! REMEMBER THE MONEY-CHANGERS JESUS THREW OUT OF THE TEMPLE. IT WILL NOT ONLY BE THE GREEDY WHO ARE CAST OUT OF THE HOUSE OF GOD, IT WILL BE A PUNISHMENT WE CANNOT EVEN COMPREHEND THAT WE WILL ALL SUFFER FOR THE SINS OF THE SO-CALLED CHRISTIANS WHO PROMOTE HATE.

    See? We can make up capitalized nonsense too, we just do it with better grammar.

    • You can’t twist what Jesus said about loving others. Jesus warned people about hell more than anything else…would it not be hateful to let someone headed for hell continue on there with no warning? It is from pure love that Christians speak the truth. Jesus didn’t tell people that it was ok to sit in the filth of their sins; He told people to go and sin no more. Stop all that mumbo jumbo regarding Christ’s words and actually read what He taught … or kindly refrain from posting comments that are not truthful or helpful. Peace.

      • Are you on crack?
        Hell was his most important issue?
        And gays, apparently?

        If that was the case, then why did…
        1. Jesus never say a single utterance against homosexuality?
        and
        2. Jesus’ two biggest commandments were LOVE GOD and LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR.

        “Thou shalt not be gay” didn’t make the cut.

        Don’t tell me to read what he taught when you’re clearly listening to right-winged bigots who know nothing of Christ.
        Bunch o’ hypocrities.

        Let me know when you are free of sin and you can caste your first stone right at my f%*#ing head.

  4. I ask all of us to pray yo God to open our hearts to be able to gleen from Sodom an Gomorrah, what the true Sin commuted was. Try and see it through thext that is presente, not by what a a particular doctrine posits on the text. Sit with with God a first century readers. Peace to all

  5. All responses were Heretical Poison.

    These people have made up the biggest fabrication on earth.

    I was constantly hounded by these type of people as a boy.

    They were twisted liars all of them.I have never met one yet that

    Didn’t say try or do something disgusting and abominable to me

    I will say no more about it.But I could write a book about the filth they tried to expose me to.From 14years old up to this very day.I no longer want to hear the

    Stench of Thier Satanic DOGMA.

  6. Just accept it. Gay is wrong. Nothing complicated. The human sexual organs are created in such a manner that only the male penis can come in union with the woman’s vagina. The union is so perfectly miraculous that only an ultimate creator can invent this. Imagine going against the will of this divine creator….May peace be with you, gays.
