(of a person, especially a man) homosexual.
“that friend of yours, is he gay?”
“gay men and women”
lighthearted and carefree.
“Nan had a gay disposition and a very pretty face”
a homosexual, especially a man.
Now that’s right off the internet. Type in “gay definition”, you’ll get it. (I like the “lighthearted and carefree” idea!!! I believe that is the older definition.)
I’m a patriotic American. And I think the best way to be Patriotic is to defend your country. But not necessarily with Tanks, Planes and Guns. Paying attention to our leaders; encouraging the good ones, and impeaching (this may not be necessary. We must pay attention, however) those who are not out to serve us. Being involved in our communities; getting to know our neighbors. Spreading knowledge. For example, On june 17th, there was a gay pride parade in Columbus, Ohio, USA. (Interesting notes about pride: Psalms 10:4 “The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after Elohiym: Elohiym is not in all his thoughts.” Proverbs 11:2 “When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.” Perhaps not all pride is bad, nevertheless, please ponder that).
If you click here you can get a list of sponsors. (Look up “businesses who support gays” to find others who, although not involved in this parade, are in love with the LGBT agenda) These stores/organizations/banks etc. think they will have better business now. I want to prove ’em wrong. There is power in #s, friends! It will be hard. I like some of these stores!. But I want to BOYCOTT them until they change their minds about a thing or two!
Why do I say this? To me, being free or having liberty is doing anything you want as long as it does not hurt another individual. (Note: The Israelite camp wasn’t quite like this. You lived there because you wanted to obey YHUH’s laws. You got stoned, etc. for disobedience, look it up. Sadly, we do not have a place like that to live in. So since I am an American, that is my definition of free. Israel’s freedom was different. For example, in how it was disobedient to not attend the feasts. You may not be hurting anyone by not attending (besides yourself), but it was against YHUH’s rules!!) Again, to me, being free is doing anything you want as long as it does not hurt another individual. Not only do I not see gays/lesbians in the Holy Bible of YHUH, but it’s not freedom for a teenage girl to be videoed in the bathrooms of some store by some male who THINKS he is a girl! Come on, y’all!
So, if you are gay or lesbian yourself, two things. First, YHUH loves you. We love you. We just don’t agree/accept your actions/views. Please know that! Second, if you believe in YHUH and His son, Yahusha (Commonly called jesus, although I consider them a little different.) and the Bible, I would love for you to look over the following verses from both the Old AND New Testaments.
Genesis 2:21-22 “And [Yahuah Elohiym] caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which [Yahuah Elohiym] had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.”
Genesis 3:20-21 “And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living. Unto Adam also and to his wife did [Yahuah Elohiym] make coats of skins, and clothed them.”
Genesis 20:3 “But [Elohiym] came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him, Behold, thou art but a dead man [spec. definition 1a], for the woman [spec. definition 1a] which thou hast taken; for she is a man’s wife.”
Exodus 22:16-17 “And if a man entice a maid that is not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely endow her to be his wife. If her father utterly refuse to give her unto him, he shall pay money according to the dowry of virgins.”
Here are a few points on marriage! Leviticus 20:7-22 “Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am [Yahuah] your [Elohiym]. And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am [Yahuah] which sanctify you. For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death: he hath cursed his father or his mother; his blood shall be upon him. And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death. And the man that lieth with his father’s wife hath uncovered his father’s nakedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. And if a man lie with his daughter in law, both of them shall surely be put to death: they have wrought confusion; their blood shall be upon them. If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; that there be no wickedness among you. And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast. And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. And if a man shall take his sister, his father’s daughter, or his mother’s daughter, and see her nakedness, and she see his nakedness; it is a wicked thing; and they shall be cut off in the sight of their people: he hath uncovered his sister’s nakedness; he shall bear his iniquity. And if a man shall lie with a woman having her sickness, and shall uncover her nakedness; he hath discovered her fountain, and she hath uncovered the fountain of her blood: and both of them shall be cut off from among their people. And thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother’s sister, nor of thy father’s sister: for he uncovereth his near kin: they shall bear their iniquity. And if a man shall lie with his uncle’s wife, he hath uncovered his uncle’s nakedness: they shall bear their sin; they shall die childless. And if a man shall take his brother’s wife, it is an unclean thing: he hath uncovered his brother’s nakedness; they shall be childless. Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: that the land, whither I bring you to dwell therein, spue you not out.”
Romans 7:3 “So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.” (Side note: Here, even in the NT, you are not free from the law.)
Mark 10:11&12 “And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her. And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.”
Matthew 5:28&32 “But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.”
Luke 16:18 “Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery.”
Romans 2:22 “Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege?”
Also, if a man marries a man, or a woman a woman, how can they have children, seeing these verses show you cannot have a relationship besides your marriage? (Also see Genesis 1:27&28 plus 1 Corinthians 7:8&9)
So, think that over. (The verses & the boycott idea.) And, if you like, let me know in the comments what YOUR definition of being free is!
Happy late Independence day, y‘all! But hey, we should be thankful EVERYDAY for our Independence! What’d you say?
