They couldn't care less about what Phil said or meant when he made his homophobic comments. You're spot on about A&E, they care about one thing, money and getting more of it. I don't think you're totally on base with stating that Phil's comments were "homophobic". I'm sure you know what that word means and so do I so I'm confused why you would label what he said as such unless you believe that he is somehow afraid or threatened by homosexuals. If that's what you believe, what reason do you have to think that and not just think that his Christian faith and upbringing leads him to just believe it is simply sexual debauchery along with sleeping around with other women and other things most southern Christians consider sins based on their faith? edit on 27-12-2013 by Helious because: (no reason given)
Romans 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
You are out of order. I see nothing in Phil's beliefs that says he's afraid of homosexuals. He simply doesn't agree with the lifestyle. Not the same as a homophobe.
According to the Bible, and Phil's belief system, having sex with someone other than your marriage partner is sin. And yes, the Bible defines marriage according to this same belief system. Lying, backbiting, disobedient, unmerciful, etc. are also sins.
You don't need to educate me about Christianity. I was raised in it, so I know how they use the bible to cast their judgments, justify their hatred and disrespectful comments and ridicule people who are different than they are. I've heard it all. Believe me. Phil ought to mind his own business and stop spouting hateful garbage about other people.
To deny them their right to be who they are is just as hateful and saying they shouldn't have the same rights as others is going to be pedophobia and folks are going to be stigmatized for being against the minor-attracted lifestyle.
Not so long ago, the courts upheld anti-sodomy laws.
I am not taking a side in the matter, just saying... never say never.
I am not a homophobe. I resent that you implied that I am one.
There is more than one reason that a very conservative (or liberal) SCOTUS is not desirable.
Admit this: Most people would not want a very conservative SCOTUS.... because they could
possibly overturn Roe v Wade. Do you get what I am saying?
There it is. Equating pedophiles with homosexuals. Perfect.
You know that children cannot be consenting. Right?
Pedophilia has been widely viewed as a psychological disorder triggered by early childhood trauma. Now, many experts see it as a biologically rooted condition that does not change — like a sexual orientation — thanks largely to a decade of research by Dr. James Cantor at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.
Phil ought to mind his own business and stop spouting hateful garbage about other people.
He is as much a sinner as ANYONE else. He is as guilty as ANY gay person. He should be looking in the mirror at the speck in his own eye.
but the protest from those hateful pedophobe Christians and such got it taken back out.
