    There is a minority of Christians who think that homosexuality is acceptable. I can't for the life of me figure out how they arrive at that conclusion, given the Biblical proscriptions against it, but they are out there.

    J, whenever you see Christianity and Progress in the same sentence run like hell.......Translation Progress-progressives as in most Christians are stupid and closed minded for sticking to tradition, while the truly enlightened Christians "embrace" deviant behavior to show liberals how "open minded" they are............It's a joke

    Great find btw

    Many don't, although my Church does. We went on a Mission Trip to Kid's Village, which is affiliated with the Make A Wish Foundation and helps terminally ill children visit Disneyland as part of their wish. We spent our evening time entertaining the children and also helped inventory, clean, generally run and move supplies for Kid's Village during the day. On our day off we went to Disneyworld, and that happened to be GayDay. Some Church leaders apparently had friends in the Gay community they met up with. It is a UCC Church, which operates similarly to UU Churches.

    As for our UCC church, it believes that the Hebrew in Leviticus means "little boy" rather than "adult male," and that Leviticus also condemns many actions you have probably performed. Some examples include getting haircuts, eating shellfish, wearing clothing made from two fabrics, and planting two crops in a single field. In addition, even if the passages do ban same sex intercourse, that isn't the same as homosexuality. There are liberal views on a number of passages, such as Soddam and Gomorrah and Jesus's comments on that, etc, and I can go into those if you wish to present them.

    But most of all I've seen Christians that don't wish to impose their view of morality onto other people. They don't think we can or should outlaw things just because they are sins, but that people should have freedom and free will to commit those sins if they choose, and that is should be Christian rather than legal doctrine that "saves."

    If you actually read the site they have an agenda to make me pay for their programs and they want to work toward "financial equality". First of all, it is not Christian to sieze money from others to give to another, it isn't alms to do so either it is theft. Christ never once said the government should take over your personal responsibility and never once did He say that everybody should be equal financially.

    They have to twist the actual Bible in order to make it fit onto the Democratic Agenda in such a way. Much like Conservatives of the Uber RR sometimes will do. This is simply a way to excuse the way they will force others to live as they want them to. I may not agree with the Uber-RR on a regular basis but at least they read the Bible and make a platform to fit rather than attempting to twist the Bible to fit the agenda that they want it to.

    Lefty christians insist that all christ's objectives MUST be implemented in goverhment and get all flustered when you suggest they perform personal charity to "help the poor". Where is the choice then?

    As does my church and every church I have ever been to, however they do get upset when homosexuals attempt to intrude into something as sacred as marriage, there is civil unions for those that wish to marry legally. For gay people to marry in the church and have an actual mass is an abomination. That's not a judgement that's the way it is and for good reason, of which we have discussed on this board many times previously. What Christians object to is Sin being insinuated into the church by those who don't believe in Christianity but seem happy to make a point of degrading Christians anytime they can publicly and legislatively in an attampt to put morals on the chopping slab as a way to prove they are right and open minded. And even go so far as to change church doctrine to suit their own morality..........

    People who wish to not be preached to should themselves respect and show respect, to those who do have Christian morals and ideals. So yeah live and let live, sounds great to me.

    the antichristian movement is designed to destroy western societies (white) by eroding it's moral foundation. Morality has the effect of allowing people to work together according to predefined rules, thus strengthening the society as a whole. Destroy the moral foundation and you weaken the society as the individuals spend more time questioning and mistrusting each other, instead of working together.

    We Libs have this very slanted view of religion. When we read Our Lord's statement "I am the God of all people," we take him at his word. We don't translate His Word to be "I am the God of all heterosexual white American Christian males with money."
    My God is truly the God of ALL people. Which includes females, gays, lesbians, liberals, radicals, non-whites, non-Americans and even those with different religious preferences that you don't understand.
