JohnCarter: So it is interesting that he is listed as bi-sexual. The implication would be he is in relationships with men and women, possibly a swinger.


No. Being a bisexual does not necessarily make you want to be with multiple people. It means you're open to dating or having sex with either a man or a woman. You're attracted to either.

Granted, there are SOME bisexuals who are also swingers or who are polyamorous. But that's not always (or even often) the case. Most bisexuals are monogamous.

Egoy3k: The 'real' and 'tolerant' christians that we keep hearing make up the majority of christians need to start keeping the 'vocal bigoted minority' in line.


We're tolerating them, 'cause they're our neighbors too.
/oh snap.

There are religions of Love, and religions of Hate.
Which one do you belong to?

....And EVERYONE stands up to claim "Religion of Love" because they lie to themselves as well as God.

When their ads, like this and this get banned from television for being too controversial, it can be hard for the churches to get the message out, I would think.

Bonus points is that those ads are for the UCC, the same denomination this bisexual pastor is from.

(All three links pop, third link is an article about the ads being banned by CBS and NBC.)

To be fair, the UCC is *not* necessarily the majority of christians, and I have no knowledge as to whether or not a majority of christians *are* tolerant. Though, the ones that don't shout their religion from the rooftops are probably the ones more likely to be not-assholes.

/Sort of like how a Folsom Street gay pride parade is not really that indicative of how homosexuals act.

A good point. The good and decent members of the christian faith don't want to stand out or cause a scene so if their congregation goes apeshiat over the homogays they don't speak out. Imagine what that must be like. Being part of a group that is behaving amorally and not feeling secure enough o stand up and speak out against it's behavior. No wonder young folks aren't involved in the church.

I would think that some moderation would be in the best interests of Christianity at this point. Really for all I care keep letting the assholes take the wheel and drive the wrong way down a one way street but for the sake of the institution that some many people care about it might be time for the 'silent majority of decent christians' to become less silent.

Totally untrue.

The vast majority of HUMANS are not monogamous, it's really not our natural state. Bisexuals are no more likely to be monogamous than the rest of the population.

/yeah, you might claim to be monogamous
//but chances are you're really not.

Stop making shiat up. Bisexual doesn't mean promiscuous.


It does require serial monogamy, though. If you're bisexual and partnered up with the opposite sex, sooner or later you're going to have to split up and partner with the same sex, or you just ain't all that bi, are you?

Alternately, you could be in some poly situation, long-term, committed and shared resources and housing, a non-stop HOT HOT HOT MMF Three Way, All Day/All Night, except for study & prep time for church sermons.

Then what's the whole point of being bi-sexual? I thought it was to double your chance of a date on friday night.

No that's not at all what it means. In the same way there are celibate heterosexuals who choose not to have sex with members of the opposite gender, there can be monogamous bisexuals who choose not to have sex with members of (pick one) gender.

How can one call oneself heterosexual if there's never sexing? Or homosexual, or bisexual for that matter? One is sexually neutral up to the point that one acts upon it.

The opposing coach looks exactly like you'd expect some choad church league softball coach to look.

I've never met a bisexual who isn't insane. Just saying.

Bisexuality doesn't mean that you need to be with men AND women in order to be satisfied. It means that the people that you're attracted to can either be male or female.

Let's say I'm a bisexual woman. OK, I may be attracted to men and women, but I meet a guy that I like and am attracted to. We fall in love. We get married. That doesn't mean that I'm not attracted to women. My orientation is still my orientation. I'm still attracted to other people, both men and women. But sexual orientation isn't everything. Love and this particular relationship with this particular person is more important than being with a woman.

So, when you were a virgin..before you ever had sex, you had no sexual attraction to anyone? You didn't know what sex you preferred? You didn't masturbate to anything?

Yes, I know. It's called sexual orientation. It refers to sexuality. ZOMG, there's sex right in the word!!!1 But that doesn't mean you need to have had sex to feel a sexual attraction to a particular gender.

When you were a teenager, did you go on the Internet and look at picture of naked females and find them enjoyable? Did you go on the Internet and look at pictures of naked males and find them enjoyable?
Even if you had not actually done the beast with more than one back, you can still have a sexual orientation, based on what persons you are interested in having sex with.

Sure. And if you're straight, and settled down quickly into monogamy with your high school sweetheart, you're clearly not all that straight.

Look, let me spell it out for you. There's no single set of criteria that applies to all bisexuals, other than "gender isn't a deal-breaker".

Being bi doesn't mean I'm attracted to everybody, or even most people. It just means I'm attracted to some women and to some guys. I'd guesstimate I'm at all attracted to maybe one woman in twenty, and maybe one guy in a hundred. It's not a 'standards' thing, it's not a gender thing, I just like what I like.

(And they're mostly not who you might think I'd be interested in, either.)

You can't even assume a bisexual person is into anal. I'm not.

TheIndependent: Hmmm... not that there's anything wrong in this society with being gay or whatever, but Jesus did speak agaisnt sexual immorality and the Jews of his day would have known that homosexual behavior would have been included with that. However, this would also mean that it's no more "sinful" to be in a hetro relationship having unmarried sex than it is to be in a committed gay relationship having sex. This is Fark though... so it's only OK to live by the standards set by the internet and /B/.

Huh? How do you figure. If I am married to and enjoined in frequent and blissful sexual congress with Lil' Suzy, my highschool sweetheart become my spouse, then I am most assuredly straight, or hetero-sexual. Likewise, if my highschool sweetheart was a boy and we become married where allowed by law, or otherwise mutually committed to each other in a spousal capacity, then again, I am well and truly homosexual.

Attraction proves sexual orientation? Action is not required, says the Assembled. I do not know about this. I shall masturbate furiously and let my oracle read the swirls in my ejaculate for indications.
