Allow me to clarify something here. Yes, I believe that homosexuality is a sin but I do not believe that it merits that.
Then clearly you don't agree with your own god that passed the penalty of death an torture for Fostered Child should he/she happen to have been born
homosexual and acted upon his/her natural impulse?
Hey, I didn't make your rules but I have to take my hat off to you should you happen to find some of them as equally repugnant as "normal" people.
Do I take it your not one of those "True Christians" that don't cherry pick your gods' instruction manual and only accept the bits which sit
comfortably with you ?
The bible teaches (and this blows my mind) that to God, all sins are equal. Thus, to any GOOD Christian, non-bigoted parent, this should be about as
bad as a little white lie or tripping little susie on the playground. Neither of which constitutes that kind of punishment.
The bibles (plural) teach a lot of repugnant disgusting stuff which make very little sense to a reasoning mind and to have a "Non Bigoted
christian" would appear to be a contradiction in terms if one of the requirements of being a christian is accepting what the bibles teach.
The god yahwhe/jesus clearly finds the practice of of anal sex between men an "abomination" the penalty for this being death and torture for all
eternity. If as you claim all "sins" are equal in the eyes of your god then this surely makes a stronger case for no letting a foster child come
within 50 feet of a parent that believes what the bibles say.
I fully believe that you can be Homosexual and a Christian just like someone can lie and still be a Christian.
What you decide as acceptable rules for your club are are is up to you, perhaps there is a case for potential christian foster parents to sign a
declaration of which parts of the bibles they disagree with so the potential threat to the child may be gauged ?
If you would just make this about bigots and NOT specifically target Christians we wouldn't be having this argument!
Again, I can't help it if the chrsitian instruction manual is fraught with bigotry, thus any individual professing to live their life by said manual
accept bigotry by proxy.
dislike the bigots and hypocrites of my religion just as much or more as you do. They give us a bad name.
If this is true why don't you do something about it and perhaps start a movement to have the bibles edited in such a way that the repulsive and
morally bankrupt attributes of the character yahwhe/jesus are removed and less likely to be emulated or set as a standard ?
