Helping Us Be Human!

Sam asks what my discussion of homosexuals has to do with debunking God and learning from each other’s religions.

Moses was the first to bring us God’s "rules and regulations." Among the myriad rules Moses delivered was the warning that men should not "…lie with a male as with a woman." Such acts, we’re told, are an "abomination" in God’s sight (Lev. 18:22). That means, as our dictionaries tell us, God "detests" homosexual acts. Animals do it; but humans, we’re told, were made in God’s image, and we’re supposed to image Him. not "ape" animals.

The condemnation of homosexuality is not a questionable rule concocted by clergymen. It is a God-given, plain and simple directive for all humans. So, if we're tempted to act like animals, we must call upon our human ability to control ourselves--and our God-given knowledge of what we need to control!

Ok, so Moses said so. Which I guess means the Jews should follow it. But what does detesting homosexual activity have to do with understanding why Muslim extremists want to kill us and fundamentalist Christians don't care becuase the sooner the "end" comes the sooner they can "rapture?"
