  • You lot are disgusting horrible sodomites. I can’t believe this rubbish and filth goes on. The fire of hell is waiting for homosexuals I hope to all enjoy it burning your asses lol. All the monotheism religions believe being gay is a grave sin, you should read the true scriptures and accept them. The end is near peace out.
