How is tolerance of homosexuality intolerance of Christianity?
That's a stretch.
Oh really? It is not the Christians that are trying to be accepted in the homosexual community is it?
Christians speak out and call it a sin, and therefore are attacked as being intolerant......
There are plenty of Christian homosexuals already. And further whole Christian movements of Churches reaching out to homosexuals in matters of faith
welcoming of their sexual orientation. A huge national ad campaign even recently aired to get homosexuals to join churches, though some networks
refused to run it for fear people like you would boycott. Who's intolerant again? But the point is, you don't own or speak for all of Christianity
and plenty of Christians disagree with you and promote homosexual tolerance, homosexual clergy, homosexual marriage... Not all Christians are right
wing. Not all are Republican. Not all are even political.
So if some call you intolerant for being intolerant and speaking out against tolerance (shall I go on?) that is not intolerance of Christianity. It's
what you are...intolerant.
I'd find it difficult to believe you'd be able to disagree with that in a thread where you think tolerance has gone too far. You're anti-tolerance.
Period. Exhibit A is you in your own thread even.
may indeed be at war with homosexuality, but I assure homosexuality is not at war with Christianity.
If you've got some pet peeves with the state or education system or something? Fine. But guess what? You still lose. The melting pot is tolerant.
You can stay and complain all you like, but it's not changing to suit your intolerant beliefs. You don't like it? Get the hell out.
That's my take on the situation.
