Never judged him at all, do and believe what he wants
Just asked how he could be part of a organisation that protects pedophiles

I wouldn’t be part of any organisation that protects pedophiles and I wouldn’t excuse any Protestant church or stay with that church that did the same.

I don’t make excuses for the way protestants treat homosexuals or the violence that has been committed by the church in the past, it’s inexcusable

Never any contradiction, I asked Edge how he could be part of an organisation that protects pedos, still will ask, I want an answer.
Don’t push your corrupt faith when it doesn’t protect children and puts them in harms way. If you can’t see that, well I am sorry

Christians don’t do that, Christians are called to judge each other, not those outside the church.


Challenge away, you call yourself a Christian and I will challenge you, it’s cool

IIRC, Jesus actually said “judge not that ye be not judged, for the same measure will be meted unto you” in good Elizabethan English, LOL.

If you’re going to judge others, Christian or not, Jesus said you would be judged by the same standards.

He actually said judge NOT. Decent advice.

Again, the issue here is market forces in action, not condemnation of religious beliefs or of sexual orientation/gender identity per se.

Both have been unnecessarily over-politicized, in my opinion.

The question here is market forces and the right to assemble and act collectively (First Amendment).

Certain people gathered together to put market pressure on Chick-fil-a. Chick-fil-a has finally realized that being in business is not a religious act, but a matter of economics.

At the same time, people can come together based on their religious beliefs and act collectively as well. These are the basic dynamics which, when not allowed to get out of balance due to abuse or fraud, will eventually even out.

CFA made a choice and supported organizations that were overtly political. Their customer base acted. Now they’ve mad a decision to back away from that, and those who felt like their religious views were being supported are angry.

One is depicted as a “rage mob” and the other “just good Christian folks” but the reality is, both are political and both have the right to act and CHICK FIL A has the right to make a choice.

Donating to islamic groups who oppose gay marriage is perfectly acceptable though, right?

I thought so.


No. All religion is BS.

I eat at Chick-Fil-A, and everywhere else I eat, because I like their sandwiches. Politics and religion have no place in the food business. Those outraged on both sides about this are just ridiculous.

So I will assume you judge Christians who practice homosexuality. After all, according to you it is our duty to
correct other Christians.

Thanks for the heads up Gryph but, you might want to do a bit of research
godsbreath.net...

Common fallacy in many denominations
www.thebereancall.org...

I could link much much more

Judge not condemn, not hate or shun
Love, be fair and open with, be kind to etcetera, etcetera, etcetera

But I can judge Christians if I deem it necessary
There is obviously a standard and method that must be employed, it’s not random or personal

Drawing a parallel between pedophilia and homosexuality
No thanks, that’s pretty base and immature and offensive to a good many people

I won’t get involved in stupid and ludicrous argument thanks very much

I really don’t like the average christian, you are one of the reasons why
You reflect poorly on many sincere people

Thanks Sheye but you troll the most disgusting depths
Equating consenting adults to pedophiles?

If I were a believer which I am not, I believe I would take the word of the Son of God over yours or your links.

Jesus didn't stutter.

Well I guess its fortunate for me I don’t value your understanding of a book you havnt studied or understand
That your logic is flawed, you havnt reasoned with common sense, that you didn’t read or comprehend the links offered, formulated a basic theology why christians must judge fellow christians
That you can’t comprehend common sense

Tell me gryph, if there are pedophiles in my church, should I ignore them

Really, is that your argument, reasoned and based on logic
Do you not read the issue
What if a minister rapes a woman, ok by you?
Steals money, that’s fine, Jesus said (somewhere evidently?) don’t judge

Well done, logical, how can I argue that?

I never equated consenting adults to pedophiles. Your argument on not judging homosexuals is based on civil law. I merely pointed out to you that at one time it was against civil law. This may well happen to pedophilia in the future and it will become legal.

But once again you skirted the real question I was asking and twisted it into your little sanctimonious put down. One more time I will ask the question. Do you correct homosexual or lesbian activity in your church ? You say it a duty for Christians to correct, yet you decide on your own merit and not the bibles what should be corrected ?

I don’t see any strong conviction to Christ in that approach.

You don't know what I've studied and as for understanding, well, Jesus said what he said.

Blatta, blatta blah. You're just giving the standard pat responses for being called out on your position, you're not proving anything. I'm quoting Jesus, you're sputtering.

Are there pedophiles in your church? If so you'd better be reporting them to law enforcement instead of dithering about "correction" ... Or are you Roman Catholic?

Your arguments are specifically absurd because I have said none of those things.

I quoted JC, you pitched a little fit.

The founder of Chick-Fil-A passed away recently. I expect he would have been perfectly happy not opening a store in Boston.

Ahh, that explains it... thanks. I didn't know he had passed, sorry to hear it.

They stopped donating to groups that oppose gay marriage.
Good thing?
Bad thing?

Did you want them to keep donating to those groups?

It is no one's business but theirs, but sure... why not?

If it's no one else's business, then why are we having this discussion?

Sorry gryph your argument and theology is nonsense
Christians are called to be responsible for each other

Common sense seems beyond your logic

Jesus commands judgement
christianciv.com...

Your argument is nonsense

A non Christian like you preaching his “theology” based on whatever he believes he has heard from here or there, from gossip and Sunday school teachers, pretending he knows everything

What do you think Sheye, is unmarried sex acceptable in a Christian church
You clearly hate homosexuals with your bitter question about them
Singling them out as “worse” sinners than others

You equate them with pedophiles, then single them as the worst type of sinners

You really are the reason I am so disappointed with the Christian community

So true ! I don’t understand why the LGBTQ community isn’t all over them like white on rice because of how horrendously they treat gays.

Yet they throw tantrums at Christian bakers who won’t bake them a same sex marriage cake. Makes no sense to me, but that isn’t surprising coming from the left.


You know why.
