Yeah. Many think he's a reincarnation of Eusie. I kinda doubt it but haven't completely eliminated the possibility yet. I need to study his posting style a little more.

Wrong. I point out the truth.

The truth should make you happy. Unless you're one of the people discriminating against the LGBTQ and waving your Bible at them so you can tell them they are sinners....in which case I can see why you're unhappy about being called out.

Because without fundies posting their silly/dangerous/bigoted stuff for me to reprove and correct, I get a tad bored.

YOU could pick up the slack and post more...

Good teachings, even when difficult are not destructive to human dignity, they don't lead to emotional and spiritual devastation, and to the loss of self-esteem and self worth. But those have been the consequence of the traditional teaching of the church of the LGBT community. It has not caused good fruit in our lives, and cost us incalculable pain and suffering. If we take Jesus' teaching seriously, that bad fruit cannot come from a good tree, then this should be cause enough to question the traditional teaching.

--Matthew Vines

This morning I sat with God, sobbing. I miss my Mother and my biological so much that it causes physical as well as emotional pain. It hurts so bad that I can't describe it. My Mother's pastor told her to disown me, she did and the rest of the family agreed. I haven't been to a family function in about four years. I see from so many, it's as if there are signs on the churches that say "No gay people, only straight people here" Jesus didn't build walls of separation. There's a beautiful story about Jesus that I love. He went to this Pharisees house, and he was sitting there and a prostitute came in. This girl, in the eyes of Pharisees was dirty, an abomination; and she dropped to her knees and washed His feet with her hair and her tears. The Pharisee said something about it, like "do you know who she is, what she's done?" And He said...you know, you guys study the scriptures, and debate the finer points of the law, and you think you have eternal life, but you don't come to Me. The one who loves much, is forgiven much.

If you want to know how to love, you don't buy a book about love, or go to some conference, or retreat. You look to those who have been marginalized, like the Samaritan who the Pharisees despised, but saved a life. You look at the prostitute, who loved Jesus so much she came in and washed His feet with her hair and tears, not caring what others thought about it, just so desperate to love on Him.

To turn a phrase from President Reagan "Christian! Tear down those walls!"

It's not discrimination when a group decides to fabricate a class of citizenship and then cry foul if that particular class is not treating exactly equal in all things even at the expense of other people's rights. Sexual orientation wasn't even a real term in my grandparents generation or even in my parent's generation.
