Kind of, but not quite Hilarity.
We can call sit down and argue whether the Bible supports us or not, but there are certain points where what's written in the Book is there and no amount of arguing will change it. Additionally, some parts might be confusing or ambiguous or whatever. Others are as clear as blue sky on a cloudless day.
We can argue about whether or not the Bible meant "lie with a man" as in two guys lying down, or if it meant two dudes banging each other.
The Bible is emphatic and repetitive in saying that no mere mortal, who's flawed and fucked up as the next, has any business or right to judge another mere mortal. That duty is God's and God's alone.
Those are the words. There's no argument on that issue.
You yourself have called homosexuality a sin and the majority of your arguments are identical to the ones made in the 50's and 60's that miscegenation was a sin. I'm just pointing out the cycle of the religion oppressing someone new and being used to spread hate in the exact same ways to a new group of people.
You were wrong the first 50 times you said this, and you are wrong again now.
First, there's nothing in the Bible that says that two people of different ethnicities cannot have sexual relations or get married. Hell the Bible doesn't even say banging a Green-Skinned Space Babe
is a problem.
Second, my arguments are not the same as theirs, except in the most specious terms. The arguments you're referring to were used with the express purpose
of marginalizing and belittling a group of people.
My arguments are constantly couched in the wider context that all of us are equally dignified human beings before Man, before the country, and before God himself.
If this isn't so, then please show me where.
