Video: Coral Ridge Ministries grabs low bar, plunges it to unexplored depths

by Jeremy Hooper

Disgusting, negligent, easily verifiable lies in the name of Jesus:

Now, of course the websites for which the ACLU of TN actually fought included those for groups like Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG), The Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN), Human Rights Campaign (HRC), Marriage Equality USA, Religious Coalition for the Freedom to Marry, The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), and Dignity USA (an organization for LGBT Catholics). But why should a little thing like factual information get in the way of Coral Ridge Ministries' agenda? After all, gay porn exists -- so why shouldn't these "pro-family" groups just go right ahead and say that gay porn is what progressives are fighting to place in public schools? If it makes us gay folks sound like sex-crazed perverts, then surely Jesus will forgive the fib.

Holy wow, we don't know how some of these folks rest their heads at night!

Perhaps this is the way they celebrate International Blasphemy Day...

They'll reach for any straw they can grasp. Their message isn't relevant anymore, particularly since they took up the homophobic mantle.

Boy, is he parsing words to a fare the well. Depending on the time and place and when this prayer was conducted, that would be a violation. The thing is, why isn't prayer in the home, gathering like minded people in the home, the public places of worship to those who share one's belief NOT ENOUGH?

School IS obligated to teach about the real in the world, with regard to the kinds of people and places and so on that exist. What gods one believes in are intangible, gay people are not.
The needs of everyone MUST be met in school, prayer isn't so urgent, nor obligatory in schools for the aforementioned reasons.
One can choose or abandon religion at will, one cannot, sexual orientation.

One can also easily access certain objectionable material through heterosexual sites too.
In fact, a young friend of mine researching Christians for a college project (she's a Jewish, Russian immigrant) accessed the website of Christian Identity, a white supremacist organization whose founder, Matt Hale, eventually threatened my friend and her family when she told him she was Jewish.

Schools have filters for adult material on school computers. If there is accidental access to adult material at the home, the school isn't liable anyway and it's no one's business but that of the parent to deal with it.

This guy is a lying sack of shit, but fear works. Ignorance works better than honesty and truth.
I am fed up to the teeth that the wet brains too lazy to check their own common sense let him lead them by the nose.

They need to understand the difference between "allowing" and "advancing." Schools must be very careful to avoid advancing beliefs, whether they deal with sexuality or religion. I don't want a school telling kids to be Christian, telling them to vote Democrat or telling them that if they don't like the opposite sex by age 12, they're gay and should live like that. But, I do want kids to know about Christianity (and practice it in public, should they choose), know about Democrats and know about homosexuality. Information is dangerous but rarely (if ever) bad.

This is like saying letting kids access information on breast cancer so they can find out what's happening to their aunt or mther is really a means to justify letting boys view pornographic images of women in the school library.

Of course, I wouldn't put it past this guy to say exactly that.

This Presby cult has been obsessed with the ACLU for a long time. Back when the head bigot was D. James Kennedy, he had regular "exposes" about the group and their "oppression" of poor persecuted Christians keeping people in their place...
