John, it is par for the course to take a discussion in another direction when you lose the original argument. Enough of that anyway. I sure don't want to argue about who treated who the worst in history. Good to see you.
I want to buy the book 'Zealot but after seeing a short blurb from the author, I don't think I am going to like what he has to say.
I do want to say, Ink, thank you. I looked up Zealot and read about the author, the reviews, too. Seems interesting. You should buy it. I think I will.

The point from the other side was that gays were the most discriminated against.
Was there a time specification?

No, it really wasn't. YOU are just trying to pretend that's what we were all talking about because you know you were wrong. Period.
I believe this sermon from playa was the beginning of the discussion. I don't see overseas mentioned anywhere.

Persecution of, and discrimination against, gays, is not a right.

Nor is denying one the legal ability to persecute, persecution.

"I realize these are difficult concepts for folks that are used to doing the persecuting...tough. Wrap your mind around this:

Your freedom to worship as you please, does not constitute the freedom to discriminate against others. Worship whatever you want - but if you choose to discriminate against those of whose sexual orientation you disapprove, you will reap the consequences, just like anyone else."

I will be interesting to see his guesses about Jesus.

He said

"I disagree. I think if you place Jesus firmly in the historical context ... you can make very educated hypotheses and guesses about how he lived."

You've had enough attention.
Of course I've had enough attention. That's one way of getting out of admitting you were wrong.

You have a very real problem admitting you may have been in err, don't you ? Fascinating.

"I want to buy the book 'Zealot but after seeing a short blurb from the author, I don't think I am going to like what he has to say."

All the more reason to read what he has to say. Likes, dislikes aside, challenging points of view are what allow us to explore more thoroughly our own belief systems, and make us ask ourselves questions we'd rather avoid.
I recall hearing about this book on NPR a couple of months ago and thinking, didn't Hugh J. Schonfield already cover this in his book, "The Passover Plot?"
But apparently this author's got something of a different "take" on the material at hand.
If you don't want to buy it "Ink," I'm pretty sure your local library has it...

The author admits he is guessing but it should be interesting anyway. I have a gift certificate at Barnes & Nobles and am either going to get this book or 'Killing Jesus.' Maybe both.

I don't think that there is anything wrong with choosing to turn down a job that goes against ones principals. A gay union is abnormal,therefore, participation in that whether sending the cake or being the photographer should not be forced on someone who is against it. We can't force our opinions down others throats.

Why do PC think that they have a right to override everyone's opinions? They think they have a right to abort another's progression in life. They think everyone must accept gay marriage. Sounds controlling in my opinion. I personally wish they'd stop forcing their erroneous opinions on others. They are extremely intolerant of those who don't drink the coolaid that has been forced sown their throats by their peers.

I don't think there is anything wrong with being gay, or two gays marrying. If you do, and you open a wedding cake business, you're probably in the wrong business. Make sure you know your customer base, when you open a business - the base of a wedding cake business, is going to be 'people planning a wedding'.

See how that works?

Would you have this same opinion if the discussion was about darker skinned people? After all those civil rights laws certainly over rode many opinions....don't ya think??
