I live in a Catholic country, and it's painfully apparent that many people that quote the Bible for their shit have extremely limited knowledge of it. Most people can't even tell you where the origins of Lucifer and the Fall come from, much less anything else of importance.
So funny considering it's ROMAN Catholic that leads some of this stuff. Cause the Romans didn't enjoy a little same sex fondling, amirite?
Isn't Leviticus Old Testament? Yes it is, and its the 3rd book of the Torah (Yay, Wiki!) The Romans reinvented the Hebrew faith just like they reinvented the Greeks'. Yes, the Romans did enjoy some "sameness", but that was kind of my point. Bisexuality exists in nature, but rarely does exclusive homosexuality.
I don't think "God's" issue is in the act of same sex gratification, I think it's in the lifestyle of excluding heterosexual behavior entirely. Purely from a Civilization building standpoint, mind you, not because of some moral imperative.
I'm not guilty of saying anything that hasn't been said before and—yes—said much better. What is "bullshit" in this context but "upwards of a thousand lies" in modern American English? And while those slamming me most loudly for "pansy-assed" may be on the right, they are also in the right. I see their point and, again, I apologize for describing the walk-out as "pansy-assed." But they are wrong when they claim that I "attacked Christianity." There are untrue things in the Bible—and the Koran and the Book of Mormon and every other "sacred" text—and you don't have to take my word for it: just look at all the biblical "shoulds," "shall nots," and "abominations" that religious conservatives already choose to ignore. They know that not everything in the Bible is true.
All Christians read the Bible selectively. Some read it hypocritically—and the hypocrites react very angrily when anyone has the nerve to point that out.

To kids. And he's been "out of line" many times before. Which makes you wonder why he's associated with this anti-bullying campaign, and why anyone invited him to speak in front of a high school crowd. It isn't like his views and tendency to do things like this aren't already known.
