Video: Did any hot daddy ever cruise Jesus?
In the past, John Piper has blamed AIDS on God's wrath against gay people, as well as claimed that a tornado was sent to Minneapolis in order to protest a pro-LGBT church decision. Now he takes on the probing question of whether or not Jesus ever looked over at his fellow carpenters and thought, "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph Me, mom, and foster-dad, that's a fine looking piece of man candy!":
Or maybe, just maybe, considering that Jesus never really mentioned homosexuality in the texts that Christians hold sacred, that he simply did not care. It's certainly not as salacious and profitable for modern-day evangelicals to consider. But personally we think that Jesus of the Bible would've been about as comfortable with these modern motivations as he was with stone-casting and neighbor-condemnation!
now, can we find out what Jesus has to say about spending hours on end playing video games? how did Jesus handle that?

All of the, "..well here's what I think.." and "..let me tell you.." horse hockey. At least some of the lying liars, while they know full well that they are just makin' shit up, and also they know that the losers listening to them are going to eat it up, they do (and even it is for deceptive purposes) leave open the door that they might be wrong. That they fully admit, though, that they are just teaching what they want to believe pretty much eviscerates the notion that anything in the bible is unequivocal.

Can't find it now, but there was a WHO press release yesterday that said that AIDS is now the #1 killer of WOMEN, age 15-44. Over 60% of cases due to rape/abuse.
So the HET's are now killing their own young women with AIDS.

Your 100% correct in that, "The losers eat it up".
They pick a passage in there perceived doctrine and use it as a weapon to slap down anything that opposes their myopic view.
The losers, no longer able to think for themselves given their life long indoctrination perpetuate the mantra passed on to them by their elders and church.
It's fortunate that younger generations with their Internet capabilities are able to question their alleged betters and find their own answers outwith such nonsense.
I congratulate you and your steadfastness in continually
bringing all the information you do, to light.
Despite the fact, I'm legally allowed a Civil Partnership in the UK, it's still a second class citizenship
and the churches and government conservative elements are still trying to stop my tax paying rights.
Anyhoo, despite my diatribe I applaud you Sir.
Thank You. I love reading your posts.

Jesus treated men and women no differently. He didn't distinguish between those who had a Mediterranean or an Ethiopian complexion. He taught his Jewish and Samaritan listeners the same way. He even used a Samaritan as his example of a good neighbor.
So you are correct. Gay and straight were the same to him as well. His message was one of hope and redemption and God's love for all his children, no matter our differences. In thanks we love God without reservation and we show this by loving our neighbors, gay, straight and other, no exceptions allowed.
How sad it is that some who call themselves Christians would miss the whole point of Jesus' Gospel teachings and promote mistreatment of others simply because they are different than most.
