    Don't get ****y! Thanks for coming back and clarifying.

    I agree - being against gay marriage doesn't necessarily mean someone is homophobic. But in this case...I personally think it does

    1. I didn't say he wasn't homophobic. I said being against gay marriage doesn't a homophobe make. I'm suggesting the two things aren't as related as people on here would like to make out.

    2. My personal opinion is that TA probably is homophobic. But that's personal opinion, not evidence.

    3. Seriously, I'm done. Over and out

    Going back to a comment someone made earlier about some gay people being against gay marriage reminded me of this article from the BBC a couple of months ago.

    I can understand the main guy in the articles reason for opposing. But this part ...

    "A website called Homovox featured 12 gay men and women opposed to it, with some of them citing a belief that children benefit most from opposite-sex parents"

    Just made me vomit in my mouth a little.

    Before 1946, the various translations tended to use the phrase "a man who lies with a man as one lies with a woman". It's pretty clearly referring to homosexuality, nothing to do with churches consciously choosing how to interpret it.

    Actually that's not entirely correct, I have studied this in depth even doing an assignment on the wording in the bible.

    It's fairly complex, but there is a lot of evidence to suggest that they were talking about male prostitutes and rape in the bible.

    There are many people who would disagree with that.

    I'm not sure if you're joking or trying to open a transgendered debate. I really hope it's the former though.

    A little bit of the first, none of the second. It was merely an observation.
