    Unrepentant clean shaven Christian. Unrepentant female CEO Christian. I hope no one involved in these sinful lifestyles calls themselves Christian either. Unless of course we are just choosing which sins in the Bible we choose to follow and ignore….

    You continually ignore the truth, even when presented with facts over and over again. Every child a gay couple brings into the world (through surrogacy, sperm donors, or other scientific process) is wanted and loved. Not sure why you continue to pretend that gay couples don’t bring children into the world, and raise them as excellent parents.

    If your only argument is that straight couples are better because they can accidentally create life through their meaningless sex, then I pity you.

    Way to ignore my entire argument and actual science. Good luck with reality.

    You seem to believe that dropping off a single cell either in meaningless sex or in a doctors office. I believe that raising a child makes you a parent far more than that. Though I’m glad you recognize that gay people can still be biological parents too.

    If the problem isn’t trans people using their correct bathrooms, why are republicans proposing bills to ban them from using the correct bathrooms?

    You seem confused. Let me help clear a few things up for you.
    Having equal marriage rights for gay couples is not trashing the Constitution, it is actually following the Constitution. Please read through the latest gay marriage decision, loving v Virginia, and many more. And loving gay couples does not equal sexual perverts.
    Trans people are not mentally ill not perverts. They are using the proper restroom, which really isn’t a big deal. If you are so scared of someone in a restroom with your daughter, why wouldn’t you be scared to have the same person in a restroom with your son?
    Religious rights include the right to believe and worship as you wish. Nothing has changed that right. As a business, however, you must adhere by health laws, public service laws, etc which regulate food safety, having ramps for wheelchairs, and often serving blacks, whites, gays, straights, Christians, Atheists, etc without discrimination. These have been around for decades with no one caring. This is just now about people complaining that gay people are getting equal treatment. If you don’t want to serve gays, don’t own a public serving business.

    the republicans have some good ideas on economy and other issues, but many people can’t support them when their platform calls for systematic discrimination of an entire group because of who they love.

    Gay people can still be biological parents. And the people who raise the children are far more the parents than those who only donated a cell.

    Apparently you haven’t been paying attention to my comments at all. I have never denied that there are passages in the Bible which call gay sex sinful. There are no verses that say otherwise either. However, you cannot just pick out those verses and ignore the ones you don’t like. If you want to condemn gay people because of a couple obscure bible verses, you have to recognize everything else the bible calls a sin. This is the definition of cherry picking

    I suppose that is an important distinction. They are not technically being turned away, they are being told not to come to the table of Christ, who broke bread with the worst sinners. And plenty of gay couples are married. The article isn’t exactly clear if the archbishop meant for only gay people having sex outside of marriage, or all gay people it does sound like he was saying all gay people.

    Barf:
    Nearly every single civilization worldwide with an exception of only a couple had common and accepted same-sex pairings up until a couple hundred years ago. This was true in Greece, Rome, Mesopotamia, Egypt, China, the Americas and on and on and on. And through all of these, it was just as common and accepted during the rise, height and decline of the civilization. And for the record, I have a masters degree in history, I have studied this in depth. And since you seem unclear on my previous arguments, let me clarify. You can’t condemn gay people because of a couple cherry picked bible verses while ignoring the ones you don’t like. You seem to want to ignore half of the Bible, but use a couple obscure verses to further bigotry.

    Barf:
    Gay marriage hasn’t been common until recently, that is true. Homosexuality on the other hand has been common, and accepted throughout nearly all of human history.

    By the way, nice job continuing to avoid nearly all of my arguments.

    Barf:
    There aren’t examples of gay marriage in the Bible because that wasn’t a social norm at the time. There also aren’t passages which say that it’s okay for women to go around without head coverings.

    Jason:
    Yes, thank you for sharing one cherry picked Bible verse, ignoring the context, and ignoring what it actually means to try and condemn gay people, while also ignoring my entire argument.

    Tzion:
    It is my belief that Jesus would accept everyone, even those who rejected him, yes. But the point here is that these are Christians who are receiving communion here. Gay Christians who do follow Jesus.

    This difference is the Mayor was giving his opinion here, not legislating anything. Churches can also give their opinion on state matters, but cannot make laws based on religious beliefs.

    Chuck:
    He certainly did. So does that only apply to the cherry picked verses on the sin of loving someone of your own gender, or does it also cover the sins of women speaking in church and not wearing head coverings?

  • [20] July 7, 2016 at 7:01pm

    This:
    So only mortal sins in your mind should bar someone from receiving the body of Christ? And what makes being gay a mortal sin, but not the other sins I mentioned? (By the way, I’m glad you don’t refute that those are all sins according to the Bible)

    Josh:
    By all means, tell me where I posted something incorrect.

    Archangel:
    Ok, if the Bible is always true, then why don’t they turn away those other people I mentioned who are also sinners according to the Bible?

  • [30] July 7, 2016 at 6:28pm

    It’s not Christian because Jesus never turned anyone away. But if you want to turn away a committed gay person because of a couple cherry-picked verses, you should also be turning away those women who speak in church or who aren’t wearing head coverings. Both labeled as sins in the New Testament. Also, they should turn away anyone wearing clothing of mixed fibers and men who shave their faces. Seriously, focus on the message and stop trying to find excuses for bigotry.

    Utopia:
    There’s no point in continuing to talk with you if you refuse to educate yourself. Please do some research on genetics and biology first, and then I can explain how sexual orientation fits in. You are woefully ignorant on the subject here, but keep speaking as if you’re an expert. Please educate yourself.
