    I have noticed on discussion and comment boards that the tactic has turned from “clump of cells,” which is obviously easily disputed to when to consider a human being a valuable wanted human being. When society gets to determine who lives or dies based on movable goal posts, you get Nazi Germany.

    exactly what I learned as well. And, you spelled fallopian correctly.

    our property is at a rural but busy intersection and we have a creek that runs next to the road. During a minor flood a few years ago the water rose just enough to cover the intersection, about no more than a foot. We watched a driver stop, eyeball the water level and decide he would go around….unaware of the creek. Long story short…nose dive and river rescue. Yep, you don’t know what’s under there.

    There’s no lie trying to be hidden. Intelligent Design IS creationism…no 2 ways about it. It does not, however, mean it is Christian, Islam or any other doctrine…only that it is designed. That is science and probability. The rest is up to philosophy.

    I think I love you.

    Festivalgirl – I’ve described above what I believe (and humanity has believed since day 1) is a valid marriage. Actually love is not a requirement for marriage, although it’s nice. Also, love is not the defining parameter for marriage or any odd combination of people could qualify. As for other motivations (lust, citizenship, trophy), I don’t have issues with people’s motivations, only that they are M/W (again, related to my description above).

    Mixed race couples is a misnomer because there is only 1 race – human, and that was always M/F anyway. That was prejudice talking, not biology. There is nothing wrong with arranges marriages, that’s simply a cultural norm. There IS a biological norm.

    Festivalgirl – Natural marriage is that relationship that (a) makes a complete reproductive system and (b) has societal recognition of the potential of that system to create new life and protect it. Each of us has a complete respiratory, cardiac, urinary, digestive, etc. system, but only 1/2 of a complete reproductive system. Every single one of us needs the opposite half to complete it. For society to recognize any other relationship is merely the “civil” aspect of it, hence civil unions. I’m fine with civil unions, but balk at appropriating the term marriage as SS unions cannot complete the biological system requirements. If one is a homosexual and wishes to have children, I believe that person should then be in a hetero relationship. Lesbians being artificially inseminated makes the demand on the child that he or she be without a father – not through natural circumstances (death by accident or disease) but only for the gratification of the mother. The ONLY way I could EVER feel comfortable about SS couples having children together (if it must be so) is if the 3rd bio parent remains completely involved in the child’s life so the CHILD doesn’t miss out. Civil unions are about what the 2 consenting adults choose. Homosexual parenting should be about what is best for the child.

    I’m with TheEditor on this one. I don’t care what people do, but if marriage doesn’t mean A thing, it means NOthing.

  • September 14, 2015 at 8:45pm

    Festivalgirl – 7truth said there is natural marriage, not that homosexuals aren’t natural. Homosexuality is natural but is a defect. It is not an orientation that leads to offspring. There are all manner of defects in the “natural” world.

    Theologically there is a normal but not everyone subscribes to it – fair enough. BIOLOGICALLY there is a normal and it is the path that leads to new life. It is the overwhelming raison d’etre of organic existence.

    to your comment below, Genesis “has” to be fiction? If that’s your starting point, you won’t follow any of the rest of it. Also, Jesus SPOKE with the Apostles, perhaps He told them his experiences (seems pretty likely). Yes, God created Lucifer – as an angel. Free will works for them too, and he choose rebellion. God will be destroying him. Again, I recommend the book.

    Covers implies the sin is washed away. Better to say God’s grace is AVAILABLE to all.

    Most Christians, those who care to study their faith at more than the surface level, do understand these points very well. A very good book that covers the reason WHY we need Jesus’ salvation is “Satan is Alive and Well on Planet Earth” by Hal Lindsey. It’s a thin book, a quick read, but very enlightening.

    I often attend a particular church as well, but am not an official member. Though I doubt Trumps remark that his favorite book is the Bible, not “belonging” to a church doesn’t mean one doesn’t have faith.

    And crime is everywhere. We need to hear about the big stories (black homosexual video murderer) nationally, but not every thug or police murder. It feeds the weapons ban agenda.

    I don’t wish to seem hard hearted, but this really don’t need to be reported outside of local news. It just feeds the impression of overflowing violence throughout the country. Certainly things have been going on like this since year 1.

    Deip – as I stated, it was Jones’ take on the Bible verse which he interpreted according to his era and experiences. But the sermon you provided wasn’t racist at all. Regarding your desegregation in 2000 question, I wouldn’t know why but would suspect that as his experiences and the culture changed so did his understanding. Life would be pretty stagnant if everything we believe at one age, hasn’t changed 50 years later.

    Deip – I read the sermon you provided in the link. First, I want to note that it is what Bob Jones said about segregation, not the Bible. I also read the chapter he references, about St. Paul in Athens and it too was not about segregation. In fact, when reading Jones’ sermon I was struck by how open he was toward all people. I didn’t expect that. I don’t think it is a big deal that he thought Africans should be in Africa, Chinese in China. He was acknowledging cultural differences, a way of seeing things, which also pertains to how you see things according to your era, as Jones does. In fact, cultural integrity (versus diversity) is a strength even today. All in all, you’ve given me an example of somebody who interprets a Bible passage through the lens of his time in history and experiences, but not actual biblical references to segregation. King Solomon, by the way, had a son with the Queen of Sheba who SOME traditions state was an Ethiopian (others Yemenese), and the idea of a Ethiopian with a Jew (whether true or not) has not been a problem.
