GAY CHRISTIAN SUES BIBLE PUBLISHER AND TELLS ALL IN NEW BOOK. Canton, MI- Matthew 22:29 instructs: Yes err not knowing the Scriptures. And, author B.L. Fowler agrees. So much, he sued three leading Bible publishers for discriminating against homosexuals. As a result, his new book entitled We Err Not Knowing Or Studying The Scriptures-Matthew 22:29 has become a phenomenon “must read”. Ideally, the author expresses that countless religious followers have fallen prey to a lack of clarity concerning scriptural doctrine; and as a result, there is a gap between generations, concerning today’s secular era and same-sex agendas. In addition, he points out that gaining clarity on the Scriptures is important, especially for Right-Wing religious zealous Christians and Muslims. In fact, Mr. Fowler states the angel Gabriel plays a significant role in both religions, religious lore. Furthermore, Mr. Fowler recommends religious followers should cease being tense when faced with new age issues like same-sex marriage. He says the ideology concerning homosexuality derived from an inclusion of the term in the Holy Bible, during a revision session, which began in the early seventies. In fact, author B.L.Fowler conveys research proving it was St. Thomas Aquinas who began the rally to oppose acceptance of same-sex love. Meanwhile, the discovery of scriptural clarity has helped the author relinquish his fear towards other religious followers such as Muslims, a religious sector Fowler admits he’s held negative reservations towards, since the September 11th tragedy. However, he expresses a sincere concern for all religious followers to begin rebuilding a better world, one that every one can live peaceably in. In fact, the author points out that too often religious followers hold grudges towards other denominations, without true cause; and quite often, this stems from a lack of understanding of the religious lore followed by a specific group. He adds, “Christians and Muslims have always held this dark shadow of indifferences between them. But it’s time our country resolve these issue, and the only way Christians can overcome their discomfort towards this group of followers is to learn the doctrine they profess to have so much faith in.”. In fact, the author has prepared an in-depth study into the world of religions such as Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Jainism, and others, hoping to gain understanding on what makes one different from they other, especially when there is only one Divine Creator. As a result, this 235 page guide encompasses the study of religion doctrine, the history of beliefs and tradition incorporated by each religion, and even explains scriptural revisions. In fact, Fowler sued Zondervan, Thomas Nelson, and William Tyndale for discriminating against homosexuals within the Scriptures. He says these publishers allowed Bible committees to revise the scripture to convey the negative connotation towards homosexual; and because of this inclusion, homosexuals have suffered grave injustice.

It boggles my mind that you could lump homosexuality (a consensual act between adults) with child rape. Those aren't even remotely the same thing. It's one thing to disagree with me, but to liken me to a rapist or murderer goes too far. And if morals are unchanging always and forever we would still believe slavery is ok, but obviously we don't. And finally, I have no desire to forgo a way of life that makes me happy and that I find fulfilment in. And I have no desire to follow the same dogmatic beliefs you do, that cause you to be nothing but hateful.

@ Roger Smith: Homosexuality is a gross perversion. God designed romantic and sexual love only for between one man and one woman for lifetime. Everything else is distortion and perversion. You'd consider yourself as abnormal if you get attracted to a child or to family members romantically. And you'd consider it immoral if you get attracted to others while being married. The same thing. Our society got so corrupt like Sodom and Gomorrah that it praises massacre of unborn humans and homosexuality. Feeling good and endorsement from corrupt human societies mean nothing. Criminals rarely feel any guilt in raping and butchering others and neither do the barbaric societies who abuse children. But what is wrong is wrong everywhere for all eternity. There will be judgment for every wrong done by mankind. You must repent your perverse relationship and come back to God by trusting in Jesus for forgiveness. Keeping your perversion is not worth your life.

@Roger Smith There is no contradiction in the Bible. You just didn't study it enough.

Everyone who claims to believe in the bible picks and chooses. It's impossible to believe the whole thing because it's always contradicting itself.

As a homosexual myself, I have to tell you that you couldn't be more wrong. We are perfectly capable of forming deep and lasting friendships that are completely platonic just like anyone else. We are every bit as capable as you are at differentiating friendship and romance. I don't understand where this notion that we're confused comes from. We are human beings just like everyone else who happen to be romantically and sexually attracted to memebers of the same sex (or both sexes). I also noticed that you said "normal human beings". Does this mean that homosexuals are somehow less human because we don't meet some standard of "humanness"? Or doesn't mean that homosexuality is an abnormality? (though, I suppose one could say it is, if we consider all things that are not expressed/practiced by the majority of people abnormal. But in that case we'd have to consider left-handedness to also be abnormal.) I'm interested to hear your thoughts on this.

Our world is full of emotions and beautiful designs. I think homosexual people tragically mix deep friendship and the romantic notion of being united to another physically. Because of the permissiveness of prevailing perversion in the given society, people are encouraged to rebel against everything beautiful that God has willed and designed. Homosexual people must learn to differentiate friendship and romantic love in their lives like normal human beings. In our society, insulting God and His people is completely acceptable but calling sinful behaviors sin is not acceptable but rather very offensive. What a world! The human civilization's wrongness knows no limit.

I found those who endorse homosexuality always hate the Bible in whole or in parts. That tells what they are. God never meant His Word for pick-and-choose practices.

Good. Amen. But actually every sin needs clear condemnation from God's people through the Word. Without it no one among us will stop any evil doings. The Bible says: "But you know that He(Jesus) appeared so that He might take away our sins. And in Him is no sin. No one who lives in Him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen Him or known Him." (I John 3:5,6). Those who practice homosexuality should question their salvation because most likely they don't have the genuine, saving faith. Anyone can claim to be Christian without having the Holy Spirit. I think homosexuality is practically different from other sins in that its willful continuity is being demanded to be endorsed. For all other sins, the transgressions are deemed to be past occurrences in the assumption of doing the best not to repeat them again. Homosexuals on the other hand demand to be accepted while positively engaging in the very sinful practices. Because of this, the endorsing "Christians" or the society are as guilty as the offenders themselves as written in Romans 1:32. Homosexuality practically makes humanity slaves to warped sexuality. If one feels sexual attraction to the same sex, what is there in the universe that he or she cannot feel sexual desires, from children to family members, from toys to robots, from galaxies to amoebas? Anything and everything becomes a sexual object. It's demonic in the bottom line. We are dealing with a monstrous problem in one of the most wayward forms. Practicing homosexuals and those who endorse them are proclaiming themselves to be gods for themselves no matter what Christian vocabularies they use. It is wrong to rape no matter how much it is urged. It is wrong to practice homosexuality no matter how much it is desired. No sinful practices are dismissed as a natural nature; so should homosexual acts be. These people must ask God to change themselves and overcome the evil and never dwell in the sinful lifestyles.
