I am confused by those that use the bible to make a certain point but ignore other important verses. As humans we have evolved, we do not live in days of beheading and stoning as some people still do. We have free will to learn, we have healed disease that would have killed us before. We have technology we never could have dreamed of. But there is also things we will not understand. So use your brain and think, even if you believe it's wrong, it is not your right to Judge, Isn't that also a commandment? So question how can there be as many as 5 people in the same blood line of family that are Gay. 5 different people that were raised in a great families, went to Church and taught respect and values and loved. Do you honestly believe they choose this? How can you preach LOVE when you spew hate? I can't even tell you how many people that were lost to a church because of judgmental Christians that felt they where not worthy enough or even dressed good enough to enter the Church! ..... Not everyone was born into that perfect family or had support of loved ones. Not everyone had the silver spoon ..... How dare we judge them... Very Sad!

I am signing because people should be free to do what ever feels right for him or her. It's none of our business if a man is gay or not. I don't think that being gay is such a big deal. I have plenty of gay friends and their are actually really cool people. They don't go around wanting to date everyone of the same sex. Just let them be. If other people are so passionate about this whole anti-gay thing and want to ban it, they maybe they are the gay ones and are trying to find a way to fool people to think that they aren't.

"He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at [them]." -John 8:7b, KJV
why? Because:
"For God so loved the WORLD that He gave His one and only Son..." (John 3:16a)
God loves everyone. To suggest that any one person, much less a group of people, should be stoned, is not Christ-like, God-representing, or God-honoring. Please apologize.

We can no longer as Christians stand to the side watching God's precious children be persecuted by leaders who are supposed to be caring for their lives. Why would any parent want to send their child to a place that will tell them that: a rape they survived is their own fault, their homosexuality is worthy of death, or their strong and healthy sexual desires must be viewed as sinful? Topping it off with a pre-canned package of Bible verses to "cure" them, with no care whatsoever for their very real emotional turmoil. This simply must stop. God is a God of love, and we have no right whatsoever to treat His children thus.

Bob Jones III,

I ask that if you refuse to apologize for your remarks, please stone me first as I am not only lesbian, but transgender, bi-sexual and pan-sexual. According to your misled belief system I must be #1 on your list.

Apparently one of the 10 Commandments has no meaning to Bob. "Thou shalt not kill." Hi suggestion to kill anyone has the ability to make it OK for another person to follow through with his suggestion. Didn't his Christ say "He without sin pick up the first stone"? OK Bob! Pick up or shut up!
