I respect that you love God and other people. So do I. I also know that that book you refer to was written by a bunch of powerful, straight, white men that have been dead for many hundreds of years, and so reflects their beliefs much more than God's.As for "wallowing in evil" that was those dead guys' words right there. If you want to argue against modifying laws to include certain people (which is what I assume you meant by destroying American moral principles), that's your right, but you're following the will of a bunch of old, dead Europeans in funny clothes, not God's.Incidentally, the Bible also says that slavery is cool as long as the slave is a foreigner, and that it's better to throw your virgin daughter to a horde of men to be gang-raped than to have gay sex. Assuming you're a good person, you know these are wrong. And if these are wrong, you must admit the possibility that other things in there are wrong. And after admitting *that*, you cannot use any part of it as a defense, because you have no way of knowing which parts are the wrong ones.I love God, too. The Bible, though, is just an historical artifact.
