I guess stupidity and bigotry are your divine gifts, then?

If the Bible is to be believed, then God causes such things so that He can glorify Himself, so yes, they are gifts from the Omnibenevolent One.

Everything is a "gift" from your god if you believe your bible.
1/30/2009 2:56:55 PM
You're right. These aren't gifts from God. Nothing is a gift from God.

I don't think Obama said that, I thought it was Oprah.
1/30/2009 3:33:25 PM
Well, then all diseases are a "gift" from God....cancer, diabetes, genetic defects.
Well, when it serves your recruitment purposes, they usually are...God made your wife die a horrible, painful death of cancer so you could become closer to him, for example...?
I true homosexual was born with an abnormal endocrine system....a person with epilepsy can be born with a genetic abnormality for that disease.
Yes, and Epilepsy directly harms the person. The only people homosexuality directly harms are people like you who can't keep their eye off the keyhole.
These are in no way "gifts" from God.
If they are, they're on par with those ghastly sweaters you get from that aunt, year after year...
1/30/2009 3:34:22 PM
When did Obama ever say that though? With a faulty premise, all is possible.
1/30/2009 3:35:30 PM
Based on your Bible, actually they seem to be.
1/30/2009 3:36:51 PM
Seems like whoever said that about gay being a gift has a healthier attitude about life than you do, Miriam. They can deal with what life hands them instead of whining and looking for the divine helicopter to rescue them.
And, of course, any gay or bisexual person who also has real diseases and disorders can tell you that there is a huge difference.

"I true homosexual"? A Freudian typo, perchance?
1/30/2009 3:56:42 PM
It was apparently a Rev. Ed Bacon who said this on an Oprah show.
I typed this twice as the first time I could not help myself and typed Rev. Egg Bacon I must be hungrier than I thought.

4. At least, it isn't rabid.
1/30/2009 4:18:34 PM
Wait, this wasn't Obama, this was Oprah.
1/30/2009 4:21:49 PM
um, I don't know who submitted this, but it was about OPRAH saying homosexuality is a gift from God. If you are going to post, at least do it correctly.
1/30/2009 4:30:06 PM
Wait, wait, wait... It wasn't Obama. It was Oprah. lol Fundies dislike them both, but they're quite different people.
And Oprah didn't even say this, either. Rev. Ed Bacon did.
1/30/2009 4:34:05 PM
a person with epilepsy can be born with a genetic abnormality for that disease. These are in no way "gifts" from God.
If the genetic abnormality that triggers epilepsy is not a gift, then is it a punishment? If so, what for? Is it a punishment for future sins, or is it a punishment for sins of past generations? Neither is morally palatable.

Miriam33, git from God.
1/30/2009 5:27:04 PM
Either your god creates DNA or he doesnt. Which one is it. You cant have the best of both worlds (That is saying that god is responsible for making babies but not diseases.. they both have DNA)
1/30/2009 7:50:10 PM
It was Oprah, not Obama who said that, but anyway...
If you're so convinced that homosexuality is a disease, why do you insist that gays will be sent to hell? Are you saying that people with epilepsy will also be going to hell?
1/30/2009 8:39:54 PM
Obama neve said that, Miriam, but you folks have never let an absence of facts stop you. Why start now, eh?
1/30/2009 9:06:54 PM
"Wait, this wasn't Obama, this was Oprah."
They're both black people whose first names start with O. How can we be expected to tell them apart?
1/30/2009 10:19:41 PM
I true homosexual
1/31/2009 1:34:41 AM
Guess he didn't create everything, then. Unless of course you mean these things were not gifts, but punishments from god. I wonder what behaviour he's trying to punish? Whatever it is, it can't be homosexuality.
1/31/2009 4:40:08 AM
Your bigotry is not a gift and homosexuality is not a disease.
1/31/2009 3:36:07 PM
Question is raised, WHY THE FUCK GOD ALLOWED THOSE HORRIBLE THINGS TO HAPPEN THE FIRST PLACE?
