are you saying that Christ didn't charge Christians to spread the good news? To warn other Christians and non-Christians? What would be your reasoning behind that?
It's better to lead by example than forcing someone to accept your beliefs.

Jesus said nothing about homosexuality, but people get divorced and remarried all of the time, and He said that those who do so are committing adultery. Where is the Christian outcry there? Are you warning all of your divorced and remarried friends that they're condemned to hell?

his appointed apostle Paul did. He was charged by Christ himself.

Yes I am. Thanks for asking.

I haven't said anyone is going to hell. I am saying it is a sin. And it is. That there is no doubt. None.

apparently Jesus had no problem with the judgement that fell on Sodom.
Mark 6:11
And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
Matthew 11:23-24
And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.
24 But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee

Meanwhile, the crime rate in Chicago continues to skyrocket, particularly the number of homicides, and Emanuel does nothing.

New York's population is TRIPLE that of Chicago, yet so far this year Chicago has had significantly more homicides than New York.(New York pop.= 8.2 million, Chicago pop.= 2.7 million. As of 08-05-12, New York homicides = 246, Chicago homicides = 319. Chicago's homicide rate is QUADRUPLE New York's homicide rate. And more than 90% of those Chicago homicide victims are black.

What's Emanuel and Teh Obamaniac doing about THAT ?!

Is a sky-high crime rate, particularly homide rate, something to be PROUD OF ?!

If you can point out an error in my comment, BRING IT.

Otherwise, your comment is nothing more than a waste of bandwidth.

So debate with the big boys if you can. If you can't, go back to playing in the sandbox where you belong...

The truth is these people in the ghettos of Chicago were written off by Obama, and Emanuel a long time ago. They know they cannot civilize them so they just ignore them. They come around at election time slip them a couple bucks, and buy their votes. Then they ignore them for another couple years.

Obama won but would I be wrong if I said that he has a long record of betraying you dems often?

He will say one thing than after all is said and done he has done another while the lib media gives him a free pass.
