Video: 'Holy ostracism'

by Jeremy Hooper

Well hey, that's why God made chocolate and vanilla: So that evangelical Christians can get behind one and then castigate anyone whose disagrees with their personal tastes. So open-minded, they are. [::writer rolls eyes, shakes head, weeps for the countless friendships and family bonds that have been broken becasue of short-sighted religious "advice"::]

How should you respond to a Christian friend who's in a homosexual relationship? [YT]

Your thoughts

So this man will ostracize me if I claim to be a gay Christian? Good f---king riddance.

He learned all of life's answers by the time he was eighteen, so the possibility that the accepting churches could actually be right does not enter his closed mind.

Oh, and gay people couldn't possibly have anything to teach him, either, right?

I'd say to that 'friend' with 'friends' like you who needs enemies.

Actually, I wish more fanatical people did exactly that: decided to have nothing to do with us, stopped handing out 'change is possible' leaflets, interfering with state legislation, and left us (behind, like in those vacuous trashy Lahaye novels) in peace. Please, rapture yourselves off :-)

I am glad to think that the contents of the Bible were almost completely fiction, and that no celestial Big Brother is watching over us, analyzing our every move, absolving our responsibilities for our actions, preventing us from thinking for ourselves, and demanding complete servility. The ridiculous man in the video is a perfect example of how faith rots the mind.

Had to post...seems Pastor John pink slipped his god/judge paranormal entity.

He redacted "judge not for ye shall be judged" thanks to his spiritual constipation.

One does have to ask: which of the 800-versions of the bible did he chose to validate his bigotry and spiritual constipation?

I just did ask him, he's the one who uploaded the freaking bigots R Us testimonial.

posted it over at YT, but can't resist saying it here too: sounds more like discipleship training errrr, brainwashing, with the goal of keeping the kool aid drinkers on the compound.

Everyone should head over and check out the comments between EatSleepBreathMovies, redfish (the biased pastor), and tonykw. Tonykw presents some interesting facts and research on the matter that shows how the religious leaders and far right are not presenting all the facts in their arguments.
