Bishops fail to convince public on same-sex marriage

Nov 19, 2012 | Posted by: Rick in Kansas | Full story: www.channel3000.com

Republican leaders seem to agree on just one thing: they didn't do a very good job of convincing voters that conservative principles are in those voters' best interest.

Speaking of messages which increasingly play embarrassingly badly with the general public, the protestant case in point.

Maybe because the voters are too smart and know that conservative principles AREN'T in their best interests. This past election showed pretty clearly that conservatives like Mitt Romney are only interested in furthering the agenda of rich, white, heterosexual evangelical or otherwise conservative Christian men.

The very clergy who preach most vehemently against homosexuality are often the biggest offenders.

The Bible repeatedly condemns all homosexual behavior. This fact is indisputable:
Leviticus 18:22 - You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.
Leviticus 20:13 - If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their blood guiltiness is upon them.
Romans 1:26-27 - For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
I Corinthians 6:9 (NIV)- Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
I Timothy 1:8-11 (NASB)- "But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted."

When you haven't got anything better to do in life, go to the internet and cut and paste nonsense from the Bible.

Our times would be very poor indeed if drastic changes didn't take place; that's what progress means.. We're far, far away from Utopia..
