HOMOSEXUALITY:
Jesus said nothing about homosexuality
unless you think he meant to include gays
and lesbians,when he said not to judge others
and to love your neighbor as yourself. Surely
he did. Levitical law may have condemmed
homosexuality-along with eating pork and shellfish
or getting tattoos.Main-stream christians know
that those restrictions are superseded by a new
law of love,acceptance and respect for others.
Please do not legitimize hate speech against gays
by calling it "Christian."It clearly isn't.

I think the "new law of love" is actually an old law. It's just taken many of us a while to move in that direction. But it sure is sad to see how much hatred there is behind the "Chrisitan" movement. I used to call myself a Christian, but can't do it anymore. It's a club I can't belong to!

Hi michele.. I see anonymous is still up to his old tricks.. I've just checked that ranking out, didn't know it was there. Yeah I surf quite a bit, I deactivate my blogs before I go to bed, so perhaps that's why you don't see them, I should keep them going all the time really but there's nothing worse then seeing the same old blogs time after time with nothing new on them. I just missed you a couple of days ago over on blogmad shout box... I see the lads giving you a hard time.. I was backing you up but you were gone by that time...lol
Catch ya later..

Good post!!! My lesbian step-sister would have some words for anonymous.
Anyway, thanks for your comment. I hope your mother is okay with her hip. Ouch.
My dad broke his jaw just before Christmas because the meds he was taking for the prostrate dropped his blood pressure too low and he passed out three times within like 1/2 hour. My step-mom couldn't catch him and he had to have his jaw wired shut for 6 weeks.
No, I don't like them getting older! But he is strong, very strong and will be just fine. But it's hard not to worry, ya' know?

Hi babs, thank you for the well wishes and right back at ya.Things will be allright.We were put here to encourage one another not to tear down one another.Nobody's

I also find this infuriating but people will always find ways to twist the language of the Bible to suit their needs, even if hate is one of them. Very unfortunate.

Hey- 2 each his own! My biggest problem with this group is that they R constantly shoving their sexual preferences down Everyone's Throat! (Excuse the pun) Especially to R CHILDREN! My kids
DO NOT want 2 see (and R VERY OFFENDED BY) all these bullshit movies they R putting on shelves at Blockbuster and other places, Like MOMMY LUVS NEW MOMMY, and How DADDY LEFT MOMMIE 4 ANOTHER MAN! I don't shove my beliefs into people's faces, and neither should they! Outside of it being an ABOMINATION of life itself, (no reproduction) 2 each their own.

I was always taught not to hate the person, just the act. If you feel someone is sinful you don't need to hate them for it...just hate the act of the sin.

It goes deeper but I feel this viewpoint takes the sin and places it on everyone where it should be. We all have our vices. Some are addicted to food. Some addicted to alcohol. Some can have one drink or one meal and be fine.

As human as we are it's wrong to go around judging. If someone asks me for advice I will give them my opinion then but if they don't I can choose to befriend them or not.

I am uncertain how God will rule things in the end and I don't presume to know it all...I'm just going to teach my children the morals they need in life and then allow them to make their choices when they are old enough.

Too many times it's shoved down throats like she said and it's frustrating for those of us that do try to do good to live around others. I hear all the time how 'bad' Christians are but that's a judgement too.

It's humanity to want to put people into groups. It's hard not to. Judgements have got to be dropped though. Beliefs are different with each person and it's so important to view the diversity carefully and make your own choices.

Oh, and I'm here by way of the quest, too. AND, the SB is not boring you seething bitch! I'm your therapist and you know you love me and miss me when I'm not there! <3

If you read the bible more carefully, it clearly states that gays go to Hell!

It doesn't directly say that lesbians do though...

For me, that's one reason why I don't prescribe to an organized religion. Why can't everyone just prescribe to the Golden Rule? I hate when religion twists things to suit their own ends.

to watch seniors or obese people
make out either.What's your point?
Someone may not want to watch you making out...does that make you less of a human being.AS a matter of fact if you want to watch people making out aren't you a pervert or at worse a peeping tom?

It is not right to hate "gays"... but then neither is it right to condone sin. Unless you want to pick and choose which parts of the bible you like, you will have to throw Romans 1 into the mix.

Blogger Dirty Butter said...

Thanks for stopping by our blog, Michelle. Since you asked me to comment here, I'll try to express my opinion as a Christian. First, I'd like to emphatically say that I don't see anything at all Christian about any hate language directed at homosexuals.

On the other hand, I can't agree with your position that the Bible's position against gays is strictly an Old Testament cultural attitude. Romans 1:26-32, in the New Testament, has a very definite condemnation of both male and female homosexuality. But let's be sure we keep this in perspective. Being disobedient to parents is included in the same list of sins in that chapter.

ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God. We ALL need a saving faith in Jesus for forgiveness of our sins.

2:45 PM  
Blogger michele said...

That is my point all have sinned
nobody's perfect,why do we judge each other.All of us are in the same boat we are human beings,
Like the bible says let he who is without sin cast the first stone.
The majority of so called christians are experts at rock throwing,and they never miss their
target.

Blogger Teressa said...

I am a Christian. I do not deem myself a judge of any other man and their choices. My role is to love all people. I was quite upset when the pastor of the church I was going to preached hate from the pulpit towards homosexuals. I was floored. It was the first time I had been witness to anything of the sort. I couldn't believe that it was what he thought appropriate. I made sure when my family got home to talk to my son about how wrong the pastor was and that the greatest commandment given to us is to love one another. God bless.

i have always believed that if Jesus was condemned to die on the cross it was because he wanted everyone to treated as equals..that goes for lepers, women, people of different religions and gay people...all are different all should be loved the same....
which is why I am a pagan... most of the christians didn't get it right..

Agreed! What I am sick of is people hiding behind thier religeon. They want to feel like they have a good reason to feel such hatred towards people unlike themselves. Clearly they realize there is something wrong with thier views on the subject if they feel the need to hide behind religeon instead of just owning up to thier thoughts and opinions.

So true. One of the reasons I stay away from churches is because I can't stand these hypocrits that preach pease and understanding but are so closeminded. I love when they tell me I am going to hell because I do not go to church, but you know what if these are the people going to heaven, I'd rather go to hell!
