Icarus Rising - you and every one else totally lose me when you go to the Bible. It is the biggest turn off I can think of.
Icarus Rising - - you are the one who started this thread.
The point of a forum/blog is to have discussion/debate. This is not your church. This is not your religious peers.
The Bible is YOUR stumbling block - not mine.
Look at it this way. You have stepped out of your church - - you are trying to communicate with people outside your church. You have no idea what any of us believe. Some may be Christians. Some may be Atheists. Some may come from a metaphysical belief. Some may be Muslim.
We got it! YOU believe the Bible. (capitalization of Bible added by me)

I will say you would probably be treated a lot better by the Christians you were trying to sodomize with satan than the Philly 11 were by the participants in OutFest.

What I don't get is how come we don't see more Christians picketing the war? I do see Quakers, but that's about it. I do understand the picketing of abortion clinics, although I don't agreee. It comes from a "Don't kill the baby" mentality, which even though I am pro-choice, I completely understand from a theological perspective the picketing of Abortion clicnics.
What I don't understand AT ALL, is the picketing of a movement of Lovers.
If these Christians would put so much energy into protesting something that kills and causes great suffering to innocents, as opposed to something that is all about love, then it would make much more sense.
These are nothing more than Homophobes disguised as Christians.

If a group of gay rights fanatics came to an Easter Sunrise Service in a public park, and demanded the right to speak about their cause during the service,would they be allowed to do that?
And that was exactly what those idiots were silenced for in this case. Because their words were designed to provoke a violent reaction, the police had every right to stop them.
Oh that's right, the fanatics of both sides ARE idiotic, aren't they?
