I can only judge your level of fabulousness during acts of gay sin if I have photos of said actions.

Or video.

Preferably video.

On the sin continuum, I think homosexuality now falls somewhere between gluttony and wearing clothes made from the coats of cloven-hooved devil animals.

The one big thing is: homosexuality is not a super sin. It's one of many, including adultery - other things - lying, cheating, gossiping; it's right there in the list.

When I was a kid, it was a "straight to hell, do not pass Go" sin.  Worse than almost anything else, punishable by death and rightly so.  Now, they're saying ADULTERY is on the order of GOSSIPING?  Jesus Fark.  I swear to Elvis - in 200 years, these farktards will be saying "Christianity NEVER preached against gay people, it was just misinterpretation!"  Like they do now about Christianity being anti-science.

And I'm bummed as well to lose my SOOP-er SINNERRRRRR! title.  It was rather freeing, actually.

Well, thanks to this thread I got to add a few new entries to my purple-themed "Farkin' Gay Farker" listing.

Don't worry, there's lots of that still out there.  Focus on the Family recently got a new leader who is taking the group in a less hardcore fundie direction. There was a World Nut Daily article linked on Fark a while back in which the author freaked out about who would now uphold traditional values and whatnot.

Anyway the upshot is:  *Real* evangelicals still totally think you are massive sinners who are going to burn, burn, burn.

So, according to them, homosexuality is only 3/5s as evil as it used to be?

Gossiping is a sin? I went to Catholic school and had to go to church, and I have never heard more gossip in my life than when the church would let out and people would stand around outside talking a bit, never mind when there was something going on that served cookies and punch or something.

oldernell: I liked Stewarts take on the abomination as stated in the bible.  "So is shellfish, but I don't see them going around closing Red Lobsters."


Its a moving target.  They're always happy to throw Leviticus around, but if you bring up the other whacky shiat in there they claim that's all been swept away by the New Testament.

They just want to hate on gays because they don't like gays, pure and simple, but they don't want to admit it.  You'd have better luck nailing jello to a wall.

But masturbation is still a mortal sin (like murder) so I guess go and be gay, just make sure you do it with someone else?

The fact that masturbation will send Catholics to hell is one of the many reasons I ran far far far away from the church as soon as I could.

Oh, don't feel bummed. They just earned farking supervillain status. If you hear your kid is gay and start screaming at them, that teaches them that their parents hate them. But if you say "well, I love you very much, but being gay is wrong" and repeatedly tell them this, they have  no farking way to defend themselves from that. They will end up believing what their parents teach them: That an inherent, unchangeable part of themselves is 'wrong' and they can magically change it by praying hard enough.

This guy went from outright hate, which is hard but at least obvious, to something far worse. I really would like to murder this guy right about now.

/Brainwashing is worse than direct hate. You can see hate. Not everyone can see or overcome brainwashing.

It's right out of the Pauline epistles, I think Galatians.  But I could be mis-remembering, they all run together after enough years of Sunday School.

So is it now at the same level of the other "sins" they ignore?  Like not paying your employees daily (leviticus 19:13)?

Either it's a sin, or it's not. There's no "levels" of sin, all sin is abhorred by god. You don't get to Rewrite your precious rules because it's suddenly out of style.

Wait wait wait.

I want to see if I've got this right.

Homosexuality is no longer a 'super sin', it is instead on the same level as adultery, lying, cheating, gossiping.

So, if I'm reading this right, Focus on the Family president Jim Daly considers violating 2 of the Big 10 (lying and adultery) to be not really that big a deal in the grand scheme of things. I admit, it's been close to 25 years since I was in Catholic school, and over 20 since I stopped considering myself anything close to Christian, but isn't violating one of the 10 Commandments a mortal sin?

So how does the sin thing work, exactly? Does the one who commits the greatest sins get invited to sit next to Satan because they accomplished great evil (and such that the sleight sinners get the worst punishment for being so close to being good people), or is it vice versa (terrible sinner gets more punishment....mild sinners get slight discomfort?)
