Yep- Marxist have always targeted Christianity, and the American left is no different.

You only need to read the above as a fine example.

In their attempt to fight against what they perceive as extremism, they themselves have become every bit exactly what they claim to hate.


BTW, the days of Falwell and Swaggart are pretty much a thing of the past. Bible thumpers are far and few these days.

To be fair, the bible only mentions homosexuality between men as being prohibited.

Now that I think of it, that's mostly how my own brain feels about the matter. There's something unaesthetic going on there.

As outlandish as this statement may have seemed only 15-20 years ago, you are sadly all too accurate for far too many liberals. This is something you see with this continued condemnation of white males and seemingly attacking every religion but Islam.

As for people claiming that Christianity is singled out because this is what American leftists have most exposure to, that doesn't stop them from going out of their way to criticize Israel--a nation of Jews--while ignoring all of the atrocities committed by Israel's Muslim neighbors

You may want to read up on the orthodox position and lgbt rights in Israel. Also their position of church/state separation.

Those famous Leviticus passages even have disputed translations and context referring to male temple prostitutes rather than homosexuality in general.

It does just seem to be those that haven’t really studied and just repeat individual verses that are most virulent in their opposition to homosexuality.

Great thread! I know lots of Christians who have zero problem what people do in their free time as long as it is legal.

Christians donít kill homosexuals, but Muslims do.

Hitler also killed homosexuals.

LOL. Poor babies; the majority of the country and always so VICTIMIZED.

It is kind of how Christians are taught to see themselves though - I get that. Some of us grow out of it and see reality; others do not.

If someone were to be against Christian's killing other human beings then one could surmise that they'd also be against other religions killing human beings. Yes?

When the difference is between casting a unapproving eye or not wanting same sex marriage normalized. (Christians)

I'd say it's a rather important distinction.

Especially when the Left supports and makes "cultural differences" excuses for the ones that actually outlaw homosexuality and impose the death penalty for those who are caught.

Because Muslims are a protected class, so the left overlooks the fact that they kill gays, and keep women as slaves. They are held to a different standard.

If you criticism Muslims about these practices, liberals like Ben Affleck, will call you Islamophobic.
