It is proof that Pepper has seen errors and contradictions and other things he was told did not exist in his precious Bible for the first time; this is how he deals with that evidence. He is like most Christians when he discovers the Bible is not what he thought it was and when he discovers that the con-artist at the front of his church has been lying to him all these years.

I do not know where he got the idea that if he harasses homosexuals that his peepee will get bigger.

What does that have to do with homosexuality and the Bible?

I just love it that you no longer even try to defend your silly stupid contradictory Bible but instead demonstrate to us all how low you have sunk into insults and bullying.

Why is it that gay Christian hate the reality of biblical errors just as much as do pew warming fundie Christians?

This isn't gay Christians vs. homophobic Christians it is about can the Bible be trusted to tell us about homosexuality. Or anything for that matter, and the anwer is no. The Bible is unreliable and can not be trusted.

Why do so few want to see the evidence?

Your post succinctly restates the matter of the thread topic. It is not at all as others have said: A statement of how the Bible irrefutably condemns all homosexuality.

Very few people ever get taught the true purpose of the Bible. That includes most priests, pastors, ministers and preachers. And then, having been insufficiently informed, those who incorrectly teach it, encourage their followers to become rabid dogs in search of percieved Hell-bent cause and effect. The fundamentalist/literalist way of seeing is a self-fulfilling prophesy.

Rabbis, on the other hand, because they are steeped in Tradition, are more likely to get it. Still, because of an orthodoxy that goes hand in hand with Tradition, they are also vulnerable to acceptance into a very bigoted, self-righteous fraternity. Even so, they still have their Jewish mothers to keep them from getting to high on the rocking horse. Just ask Jesus about where the authority really rests.

Few want to see the evidence because most want something concrete and established that they can point to; something that they can see that others also respect as authority; Something that one can hang their hat on. They see the "incontrovertible authority and truth" vested in the "Holy Spirit inspired" Bible as a pillar of established stability in a world of political and social and financial constructs that seemingly have no foundation.

When the Bible, and other "inspired" scripture, is afforded such status, it is easy for the fearful to use it as an axe against the person who engages in any perceived misbehavior.

When you take that source of authority away from them, Alan, by revealing its inconsistencies,...

you take away their most precious safe harbor and set them adrift in an often violent sea with no land in sight.

Why do you keep posting unrelated nonsense and hate on this thread.

We get it: you hate the Bible, you are an anti-Christian bigot, you hate yourself and the perversion that has ruined your life, you have no real comprehension of the Bible, a book you've never read.

The only way you'll ever find peace in this life or the next is to repent and follow Jesus. You seem to have quite a struggle inside on that one.

Historic Christianity is abominable and you would know that if you were able to read or someone told you the truth about history. But since you neither read or listen you will have to remain among the uninformed and the misinformed.
"And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death. And the man that lieth with his father's wife hath uncovered his father's nakedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them." (Leviticus 20:10-11)
Because you ignor verses like this one while pretending that those six anti-gay verses are the only verses that are important is what cause biblically literate people like me to condemn Christ-insanity.
Any complaint you have about how Christians are treated is because of your mindless, prejudice, mean, nasty and hate filled behaviour. You are resposible for casting Christinsanity into a bad light. It is all the fault of you and your fellow pew warming hate flled bigots. You are killing Christinsaity and I am glad to see it dead and happy to keep hammering in the nails you provide for its coffin.

Like the rev, you want to condemn historic Christianity to justify a sexual defect.

How can I be ignoring something I rarely note?

Moreover adultery is rejected by most religions and cultures. Sociologically it is rooted in protecting offspring.

Additionally, Christianity has been and still is the greatest force for good in human history.

Clearly you expose yourself once again as an ignorant bigot.

You don't represent historical Christianity.

You don't even represent the roots of your denomination.

He's a complete fraud. He used to not hide his address and he claimed to be an Episcopal priest. There was no priest named Ken in the Springfield, Illinois, Diocese.

Just like there is no such thing as calling ss couples married, there is no such thing as calling women Christian 'Reverends'.

Maybe not in your Church.

But, there sure as heck is in mine. And they do every bit as good a job in the Ministry and Sacraments as the men do.

As for marrying same-sex couples, we will get there pretty soon and it will be a righteous accommodation.
