In fairness, I wasn't really arguing anything. What is contained within the books of the bible, interests me very little but confuses me a great deal.

I feel for those who want a Christian faith but are same sex attracted. There is no description of the specific acts that are forbidden, as far as I'm aware. There are gay affirming Christian groups who argue that the translated word for homosexual is more along the lines of male temple prostitution and often non-consensual. I have no supporting evidence for this, as I said it is not an area of interest.

As we have established, there is no direction for those in a loving, consensual same sex relationship. Paul was not addressing that specific issue so you have to remove the context and reconfigure the meaning to another millenia.

Campaign to ban US fundamentalist preacher from speaking in Dublin
Online petitions have been launched calling on the Government to ban fundamentalist American preacher Pastor Steven Anderson from speaking in Dublin on May 26th next.

According to Changing Attitude Ireland, a liberal Church of Ireland group sympathetic to gay people, Mr Anderson “has advocated exterminating LGBT+ people, lauded the massacre in the Florida Gay Night Club of LGBT patrons and said he prayed nightly that US president Barack Obama would die!” He is also a Holocaust denier.

On April 5th last, launching a petition opposing the preacher’s plan to speak in Dublin this month, it said “the notorious anti-gay Pastor” wanted “to come to Ireland, on an invitation from Northern Irish Baptist Preacher Stuart Houston to evangelise Dublin on May 26th.”
Every EU country, except Ireland, has banned this guy because of his extreme messages of hate. If the Irish Govt does not ban him I wonder how many people would actually go to see him in action.

Well now this hate preacher has been barred. Well done Charlie Flanagan.
A controversial US preacher who denies the holocaust and promotes anti-LGBT rhetoric has been barred from speaking in Ireland.

Minister for Justice Charlie Flanagan signed the exclusion order preventing Steven Anderson – or Pastor Steven L Anderson - from travelling here.

In a statement, Minister Flanagan said: "I have signed the exclusion order under my executive powers in the interests of public policy."

A provision under the 1999 Immigration Act allows the minister of the day, if they consider it necessary in the interests of national security or public policy, to bar somebody from the State.

It is the first time a person time a person has been excluded from Ireland under the 1999 Act.

A biblical quotation seems appropriate: 2 Samuel 1:19 "How the mighty have fallen".
I suppose I say it, as in its original context, with sorrow, rather than gloating. There's real tragedy when someone flies high then gets a false sense of some sort of messianic purpose. Not only do they come a cropper, but they bring many others with them.
