It's hard to tell without really having one around. If I did I would certainly talk to them about it.

I wouldn't take a homosexual friend EVER. But if one asked why I don't beleive it's right to be homosexual I'd tell him/her. I'd even take them to church with me. But I wouldn't be a friend until he/she changes his/her way.

P.S. I'm not associated with the Catholic Church, I just go to a regular old Church of Christ.


So you do hate the sinner, not just the sin.

Why would it be hard to tell, are you supposed to hate the sin and not the sinner.

Well I may just not get along with a certain person. I can love them, but that doesn't mean I have to get along with them. I try to get along with everyone, but that doesn't mean I'm always successful.

He can be my friend - probably not my buddy. I would feel obligated to help him understand the spiritual and health consequences of homosexuality. As long as he didn't come on to me, I would treat him with the same respect as everyone else. He might not want to hang with me, though.

I would really like to listen in to that conversation.

It would be an interesting converation. Though I believe that it could be pretty successful as long as they kept an open mind.

Yes I would. The reason is-

"Do not neglect hospitality, for through it, some have unknowingly entertained angels." Hebrews 13:2

"If you find someone who is worthy, find out how you can emulate them, if you find someone who is unworthy, time to examine your own character." Plato?

I said I would try to show the homosexual what he/she's doing wrong, but I wouldn't befriend him/her if him/her doesn't change his/her way. If you new a drug addict, you'd try to help him, but you wouldn't stay around if he doesn't change because he could have a negative effect on you. In 1 Corinthians 15:33 it says "Do not be deceived evil companionships corrupt good habits." You don't wanna hang around sinners because it could effect you in a bad way. In Matthew 10:14 Jesus says " And Whoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake the dust off your feet." In other words forget about it and move on; if they won't change move on, there isn't any more reason you should associate yourself with a sinner. And how would it look to outsiders when you, a christian, is hanging out with a homosexual; won't that kind of bring a bad reputation to your religion(unless you're tyin to teach, of course). Anyway that's my view on it. If the person changed I could become a friend of his because it's not him, it's what he does.

I would be more concerned about what God think's as opposed to what an earthling would think.

If you have the ability to teach, then do so. Give people all the goodness you have, and then move on when you are done.

Yea yea, 1 Corinthians says a lot of stuff. Do you pay equal attention to all of it?

1Cr 14:35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

The Catholic/Christian churchs are homophobic, as are their members. What a hateful religion some of you hold dear.

I was a christian for 18 years. I went on three mission trips to South America. I believed whole heartedly the entire time.

Then I woke up to the fact that religion is retarding society, holding back the very people it claims to be helping. Religion in the worst thing to happen to humanity since our beginning, worse than any plague, war, terrorist attack, or election. Too bad I'll never get those 18 years back.

I know plenty about Christianity.

Don't mix up religion with some of the bafoons who claim to follow it. If you read the bible, you will see that they are not doing what they are told.

Tell that to them. I don't care if they are following it's teachings or not. They think they are and that the problem.

Turtlette, God says to show them where they're wrong and try to correct them but if they don't listen you are to "shake the dust of your sandols" and move on. He says that evil companions corrupt good morals, so you stay away from them.

Mesquite, yah, I pay attention to all of what 1 Corinthians has to say. And in 1 Cor 14:35 it's talkin about women preaching in the church. It doesn't literally mean they can't say anything at all. If I were taking 1 Cor 15:33 extemely literal, I would try to stay away from everyone who could have a bad influence on me which is EVERYONE!

Maporsche, no we're not homophobic, I don't have a fear of homos. We try to speak out and show them where they're goin wrong, but after that, it's up to them to make the choice, just like they made the choice to be gay.

I'm not in a hateful religion, we don't hate ANYONE! However, we hate the sin that they commit. If I were to see a drunk, cussing homo, i wouldn't be friends with him, but I would show him where he's wrong. Now, if he changes and doesn't drink or cuss and he's strait, yah, I wouldn't mind being friends with him. If it was the person I hated, I wouldn't be willing to be friends after he changed his way.
