Do your pastors a favor and forward them a link to Alliance Defense League’s handbook for Christian churches/ schools / organizations. It explains how Christian organizations can position themselves to avoid lawsuits after this SCOTUS ruling. Most of their suggestions won’t cost a dime, it’s just revamping church policies and statements of faith.
The best advice I got on answering my liberal associates on this issue came from my pastor. He suggested not engaging in an argument, but to simply question their assumptions.
The first question is this. “What makes anything “right” or “wrong.”?

Sometimes we should just mourn for our brothers and sisters in Christ. And that’s all. What’s the point of rehashing the divisions, or to Van Jones, the “surprising” lack of division, as if it’s surprising that even white people might do the right thing or feel for the hurting. Just shhh. People are mourning. Churches are mourning. The nation is mourning. Sometimes the best thing to say to grieving people is nothing.
Years ago, a hit and run driver smashed right into the front of my car, as I waited at a red light, right in front of the police station. I was literally surrounded by several cops sitting in their cars. I had to get out of my car, go up to a policeman, and urge him to file a complaint. Not one of them had seen a thing or gotten a license plate. (I couldn’t see the license because my hood was crumpled and windshield was damaged.) We still don’t know who smashed into me, but I’ve always thought it was a plain clothes cop.

I feel sorry for the Valedictorian. First, he’s not put on the program. Second, he’s put on last. Third, the event was ended before he was allowed to speak. Finally, everyone walked out because of the principal’s stupidity.
I wonder how many hours he put into that speech, and how many of his family came to town for the momentous, once in a lifetime event.

True, he said that he won’t punish mankind with a worldwide flood again. But nonetheless, he will punish his enemies and the enemies of his people during a great upcoming tribulation. It’s described in Daniel, Isaiah (and several
of the other Biblical prophets), Matthew and Revelation of the Bible. I probably left out some. If you want to learn more, it might be helpful to start with a basic Bible overview, like The Road to Emmaus, by John Cross.

Just for the record, Christians are offended by blasphemy against our Lord.
But we worship a living God, who told us: “Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.” (Romans 12: 19)
Meanwhile we wait for that day.
I thought that after the flood God said he would not punish mankind like that again?
Actually right after that in Romans Paul tells us that God gave us civil government to be the agent of His vengeance. We should have to wait. The government should do it's job.

What a world. LGBT shirts are deemed acceptable but Chicken joint shirts are deemed offensive. We call darkness light and light dark.

What’s the point of having a right to free speech if everyone agrees with you?
 May 4, 2015 at 10:44pm
Wow. CNN’s really into attacking the victims, here. Geller’s point that free speech is attacked in the USA has been twice proven, first by 2 gunmen and second by CNN.

Seriously, how did this “study” ever make it into print? Are there no more content editors at all anymore?

You say, “it doesn’t sound like the shirts were anything vulgar or offensive.” Obviously, the language was vulgar or offensive to the printers. There’s more to vulgarity than swear words.
What some people consider mainstream can be highly offensive to devout Christians, and those unfamiliar with Christian beliefs probably have no idea how their language, behavior or dress create a hostile environment for them. It’s hard enough to live in a culture increasingly intolerant to Christian ideals, but it’s another thing to be forced to advance that culture with the work of one’s own hands.

Even if the media brought this out, it won’t matter.
This country has gone tribal.

Plus, Hispanics are Christian.

Same here. All my kids’ friends are conservative. Yes, many youth are not, but the conservative ones are much more aware of what is going on, vote, and will convince their friends to vote conservative.

That’s what Reagan did. I was one of the young people disillusioned by the Carter administration when I was drawn to Ronald Reagan. Young people respond to positive messages, and Reagan was like a bright ball of sunshine in a dark world back then.

So the kids proposed something that would unify the student body, and the administration nixed it in favor for something that divides.

What Franklin Graham said, if taken to heart, will save lives and teach respect. He was telling a younger generation that their pride can cost them their lives.
The other pastors responded pridefully, and their words are the kind that “kill with kindness.”
