Ed, it turns out the video is about "tolerance" in many areas. Not just viewing a homosexual flick.
I should have read this closer. I am not against the school teaching children about tolerance. I think they should have done it 100 years ago.
My bad for not having read the article for myself and basing an answer on the misleading title of this thread.
Whew I thought the world must be ending or something. Look the film is not a porn flick at all and I realize that. The ACLU will want to slam anything
Christian, it is discrimination in reverse.

Here is where the question "Why is it ok to push our own agenda on your kids?" comes into play. Just because they are yours, you can force your own
agenda upon them? Without giving them the chance to form their own opinions? If that is the case, you're just as bad as the people you're speaking
No, it is the state forcing a film on my children that teaches that sin is acceptable and morally OK in this country. The school has not right to
teach morality to my children. PERIOD.
Tolerance? What do you think Christian parents teach their children to hate homosexuals? How far off from reality that is. We teach them that it is
wrong and sinful and against Gods wishes, but the people are sinners just like you and I , they just fail to recognize the sin.
Originally posted by GaronThis was a gay bashing thread the moment you clicked post when you claimed a "homosexual agenda."
Not at all, nor would the one about the Boy Scouts and homosexuals be one either. There is an agenda for acceptance but there is already a thread on
Actually it confuses the # out of me to see the ACLU take up for Christians when they do, but it is very RARE.
Originally posted by GaronAs for forcing people to view a film about Christianity's view on gays...as long as it isn't shown in a
school or on state property. I couldn't care less. Religion and State do not mix. It is ILLEGAL.
So teaching morals decided by the state is ok?
Let me further the detail a bit...
1 Cor 6:9 Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor
adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders
This is a normal act then? Why should it be legislated as such?
1 Cor 6:10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
As a Christian it is our faith that tells us to make the offenders aware of their sin, not kill them, or discriminate against them. Love them and
teach them them the Good News. They can be forgieven and change the life of sin in which they live.
1 Cor 6:11 And that is what some of you were
. 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.
Notice the "were", that means that people can change their hearts!
Rev 2:2 I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked men
, that you have tested those who
claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false.
So we are to ignore our Lord's teachings for the sake of tolerance? The Church at Ephesus was being told that not accepting or tolerating sin is
pleasing in Gods eyes. But notice it does not say 'stone' them or kill them.
This film is indoctrination and nothing more and everyone here knows it.
