ummm, not really. What would justice be without sanction? What would guilt be without punishment? The folks who want to believe that God’s only significant attribute is love are missing some very important points.
Adam’s sin in the garden corrupted everything, and everything cannot be put right again without atonement. That is the whole point of Jesus death on the cross-he paid the penalty for sin that mankind cannot pay, and God’s wrath is satisfied. His resurrection is our assurance of forgiveness and proof of God’s enduring love. Wrath and love are not mutually exclusive.

moreover, “hate” is when you support transgenderism without mentioning that the suicide rate for trannies is 900% higher than the general populace…

Garbage. Speaking one’s mind does not make one hateful.
How about this: Anyone (including Target corporate types) arguing that homosexuals are born that way are haters because their values are different from mine?

Ripelwhatever-boy, the temptation to call you and idiot and leave it at that is enormous but I won’t go there. I’ll just call your argument what it is, a bomb thrown by a troll.
April 22, 2016 at 8:27pm
that is just 100% wrong. Although you probably won’t be, you should be ashamed.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out–
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out–
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out–
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—
and there was no one left to speak for me.

my first thought: ‘Openly Gay’ Pastor is an oxymoron.
But word on the street is that he gives a faaaaabulous sermon :)
Maybe just moron-ic?
Haha (me laughing at my pun)
The Blaze has not updated this but Whole Foods is now suing him because the UPC label has been moved from the top of the package to the side indicating that the package and the cake were tampered with.
Not buying it, not even the part that this guy is a pastor, unless a self proclaimed one. Are you freaking kidding me? I know Austin and I know that store which is pretty nice BTW with a walk in cooler with a great beer selection. The prices are too high but wow what a grocery store. Not as good as Central Market whose flagship store is also in Austin but that's not my point.
The point is that a) this place is Austin if you know what I mean and b) unless you have purple hair and a nose ring and visible tats people in Whole Foods, customers and employees alike look at you like you're an alien from another planet although they assume you're a friendly alien and treat you as such.
Anyway, nah, Whole Foods didn't put that on a cake. And yes, it's true, they're counter suing.

right. and I guess you are a bomb throwing troll with nothing better to do. How about something constructive instead(?)
 April 16, 2016 at 8:51pm
Bull. I’m all about providing scumbags like these with the FMJ Express to eternity. Let them give an account to God for their evil acts.

what they really want is for Hillary to shut up because they know arguing for gun control is a losing proposition for them.

a little late to the party, isn’t he?

Dear Culturally Clueless Billionaire Dude,
A nation without borders ultimately ceases to be a nation. Maybe that is okay with you, since with your wealth the destruction of our republic probably won’t affect you directly, but the rest of us are having to live with the reality of a suicidal immigration policy.
In other words, shut the &%$# up.
The rest of us

All true, but, you are preaching to the choir. The multiculturalists have no interest in truth. Our Beloved Leader is fond of spouting facts all the time but that is not the same as speaking truth.
What will it take to reverse the trend? Who knows? Europe is already past the tipping point; it may be that we are as well.
We are not there. I've lived in Europe, they are completely subservient to any and all authorities. The fact that the elites want EU taken over by Muslims means that all EU citizens want that too. It's the only way they know to think.
There is no higher crime in EU than individuality. Thinking for yourself is utterly intolerable.
US citizens still have a measure of independent thinking, especially in the less-populated states. We're moving towards a European mind-set, but we're still far behind.

Well, gosh, you sure missed my point didn’t you.

Anybody surprised? The EUIs (European Useful Idiots) could have an ISIS bomb go off in their living room and they would blame it on an international Jewish conspiracy.
You raise an important question, however, the two are not mutually exclusive. Faith in God’s Messiah provides assurance of salvation. As a last resort, the use of force to defend human life is a moral obligation.
