    It's an interesting point in terms of the nature of faith -- since the Bible merely claims itself as an authority, just as the Koran does, and one has to take a particular application of it on faith.
    I agree, and with Christianity I have no idea, much as I have been trying to find out, what weight is given to the scripture (I think I am slowly getting the hang of it), because as I told you the quran is THE authority, homosexuality can not be allowed ever in islam.

    Oh, I don't care.

    I just threw the poll results up for a lark and never expected such a quick and furious response.

    Christians are by no means all on the same page on this matter. Approach to the Bible is one of the principal ways in which Christian sects are divided.

    The bible isn't supposed to be the word of God, or something? Or at least divinely inspired?

    Some of the "Christians" are not considered Christians by other Christians over precisely this issue.

    Some consider it "...the word of God...," some consider it "...divinely inspired...," and some consider it "...something."

    You want to field this one, Jennifer?

    I would like to, but I've got to interview someone, then head to an appointment. If you would like to explain in more detail and let me mark it all up later, go ahead!

    (Or maybe Ransomed has some ideas on it too? It's fair game. )

    I'm more curious about what exactly constitutes discipline.
    "You will always be fond of me. I represent to you all the sins you never had the courage to commit."
