Discussion of religion in the context of LGBT rights is only allowed in this thread.

Discussion of religion in any other context is off topic in all of the "LGBT rights..." threads.

Attempting to bait others into bringing up religion is also not allowed.

Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
New Jerseyan by birth, but raised in Colorado since I was two. However, my mother is a first generation immigrant from Serbia (she moved here for college when it was still a part of Yugoslavia) and I've travelled all over Europe (since I have a grandparent in Serbia (the other Serbian grandparent is dead :c) and an uncle in France. Plus, I spent about 6 months in Sweden and I've gone to Egypt where I met a Coptic friend of my parents from college. While I'm American by birth, I have been exposed to diverse cultures.

Yeah. Religion in itself isnt at fault. Hell. By all historical accounts, Jesus' reaction to gay people being in love would at worst be giving them a hug and a wish for a happy life for them.

Awesomest thing I've read all day.

On the other hand, the most zealous of Christians tend to ignore any part of their religious doctrine that doesnt jive with their zeal.

the crowning achievement of mankind

Even more than the Tower of Babel? (If I believed in the Bible, I'd definitely consider the Tower of Babel to be the crowning achievement of mankind as it was basically everyone working together and building a tower that was tall enough it almost literally went to heaven. Totes awesome.)

New York City is the Tower of Babel if you built out instead of up.

[lol][lol][lol] I'm sure quite a few other cities are like that as well, such as Tokyo.

Kansas City is that way as well. Hell, its a sinful bastion of liberalism and unions in the middle of a rural conservative landscape. it even has a Gay Bar themed restauraunt franchise. (the food is excellent)

I cant wait to live there.

The tower of Babel ain't got shit on what we've built in the last century.

[up][up] I imagine the Tower of Babel to be a tower that reaches up into what is considered to be outer space that has a base larger than Central Park in New York City. What we've built in the last century ain't got shit on that.

That's a matter of some contention. Nonetheless, I was thinking more about how we've put several robots on Mars and walked on the fucking moon.

Lived in    Alabama    most of my life. Decent enough place to live if you avoid certain topics (especially politics, sex, and religion). Yes, that is a rebel flag flying under the American one near the capitol building (and just a few blocks away from the memorial to Dr. King). Just try to ignore it. It's not coming down any time soon.

I say that because today is Confederate Memorial Day. Yeah, that exists. To say anymore would be off topic, though.

Given the thread, wouldn't asking people's religion (both of choice and of childhood) be more relevant?
