This poor lady (and community) is just really scared. As the poor lady stated: " I don't understand it" , "it's a choice" and "I believe we are all
born equal", is just saying it all. She doesn't understand it, she's afraid that she could make that choice if she understood it and she really don't
know the meaning of equal. That poor lady is just saying what everyone else around her have told her all her life and has been taught by others who
didn't understand it either. Often when there is something we don't understand, we condemn and alienates it. But what is really unfortunate, is that
she feeds the new generation with the same kind of teaching and believing, without even questioning her own insecurity.
Those two teenagers said: "1)We believe what the Bible says. And it says that it [homosexuaity] is wrong. 2)We love the homosexuals but we do not
condone what they are 3) doing".
Well let's brake it down: First 'Homosexuality' definition: Homosexuality (from the Greek homos; same) is a sexual orientation characterized by
romantic and / or physical attraction to persons of the same sex.
1) Homosexuality is directly mentioned in the Bible a couple of places.
In the Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13 and again in Romans 1:25-27 and Pauls letter to the Corinthians, you'll find the mention of the SEXUAL ACT between
two men as an abomination. The ACT it self is mentioned directly as repulsive, but no where in the Bible is mentioned the romantic feelings as wrong.
But God nor Jesus talks about homosexuality as a sin. Before people state that Jesus condemns sexual immorality (Mark 7:20-23), then yes he did,
immorality, he didn't mention homosexuality. That is up to you what you consider as sexual immoral. So if I should follow these kids fine logic, I
must correct them when they state that the Bible say that homosexuality is wrong - that is not the whole truth.
2) One thing Jesus do talk about tho is malice and arrogance (Mark 7:20-23). In the exact same sentence she uses the word love and another phrase for
intolerant about their feelings towards homosexuals. That could be interpreted as a devotion for human kind, but when these Christians say "not
condone" they mean business. They really do not condone! They kick you out of the party (literally) and keep you out. That is malice to me. In this
context the "love" is just an arrogant word which is used in a manipulative way, which are said by them to be superior to you - that is arrogant to
me. We don't have to agree with one another, but we owe to a self to evolve and educate a selves.
3) When she uses the word "doing", I wonder if that is a reference to the above mentioned sexual act or the active choice they believe the homosexuals
make when they 'choose' to be homosexuals and offend these fine Christians with their choice. If she is referring to the act it self, it is forbidden
in Christian communities to have sexual intercourse before marriage anyways. So I don't think the homosexuals kids are 'doing' a whole lot yet. Well
they have chosen to be homosexuals, so they will probably have an orgy instead of a prom.
Either way, I see are new generation of condemning, self-righteous and Bible referring people, which I don't consider as good Christians. And that is
a damn shame for everyone.
EDIT: I know the teacher said that they didn't have a place in life, but doesn't know what she is talking about, and I do not consider her a
Christian. It is just sad.
