467 weeks ago @ RagingRev - Gay Marriage: A Cause ... · 3 replies · +1 points

First, let me say that the vast majority of "christians" go WWAAAAAAYYYY OVERBOARD on the homosexual issue as the 1 Cor. reference by Jason points out - it is only one of the issues (sins) among many. For the "church" to raise a fist at homosexuality while tolerating adultery ( anyone who divorces and marries again is an adulterer) or drunkards (friday night drunks/Sunday morning Deacons (I've known a few) BTW the bible says they shouldn't be Deacons) is SOOO hypocritical! And the next part "And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God." Gives you the answer why Christians should be reaching out and why some of us do reach out to homosexuals or other sinners of which we ALL are.) I absolutely believe that the best version of ourselves can only be found through a relationship with Christ. That may sound like a semantics difference, but for me it's the core of the issue. If I truly believe in Christ and who He claimed to be, then I should act like him (WWJD.) A careful reading of scripture shows me that he had absolutely nothing good to say about the established religious system of the time. He was accused of being a drunkard and a glutton and was also called a friend of tax gatherers (the worst of the worst) and sinners. I absolutely believe that if Jesus were walking the earth right now he would be accused of being homosexual because he would associate with them. What's more, many of them would find that they didn't need or want homosexual relationships anymore. And it would have nothing to do with guilt or blame but complete and total freedom to be the best they could ever be.

I stated in another discussion that religion is a krok. My definition of religion is any set of guidelines that are strictly followed and form a belief system that has little or no tolerance for outsiders (anyone who does not believe the same as them.) With that definition as a guideline then homosexuality can be a religion as well. I remember hearing a homosexual activist tort "wouldn't it be great if anything said against homosexuality was illegal!" I'm sure he didn't really think about what he was saying. He couldn't have. That would mean he didn't want freedom of speech, which is the very right that allows him to be out-of-the-closet. The point is he had absolutely no interest in defending my rights as a Christian. In fact he wanted to take them away. Remember, I heard this with my own ears.

This is getting way to long so here are my points in a nutshell:
1) True Christianity has few accurate examples in our society.
2) Homosexuals are not just innocent victims in this battle.

I apologize for my poor blog etiquette. I should have posted my correction here.

I do have a correction. The Sagan quote was incorrect. I actually blended two quotes. The first was actually Sir Arthur Keith who said "Evolution is unproven and unprovable. We believe it because the alternative is Special creation and that is unthinkable." I can't find the book that came from but I will. the point is, That's not very scientific and he was a world renown scientist. Sounds more like a religious statement to me. You keep talking about evidence but nobody is actually presenting any.

The other part of the quote was from Francis Crick, who I believe is still the leading authority on genetics and the structure of DNA. He said that while the building blocks of life(chemicals, molecules, etc) exist here they cannot spontaneously combine to create life on this planet. He believes that the oceans were seeded.

I think the problem that all science faces is not finding evidence but interpreting the evidence. You can talk about the primordial ooze all day. But there is no evidence that it exists now or ever existed in the past. It is only a theory.
