Dumbfark gay-basher that works for a dumbfark gay-bashing organization acts like a dumbfark gay-basher?

Shocking!

Many Christians were slave owners and opposed suffrage. So the trolly headline fails unless both conditions are  both anecessary and asufficient condition for opposing those things.

But there exists no such financial benefit for people who correctly interpret scripture in reference to homosexual practices. No one who believes, teaches and upholds the sexual standards of the bible stands to benefit financially from doing so.

Also the dumbfark gay-bashing organization took in over $13 million in 2011 from dumbfark donors, so I would say they are profiting from it.

Of course, if we uphold the sexual standards of the Bible, that means multiple wives, concubines, and marrying your brother's wife after he dies, and keeping of chattel is OK?

I don't think that they've thought this cunning plan all the way through...

The Christian bible condones slavery.

1 Timothy 6:1-5

Let all who are under the yoke of slavery regard their masters as worthy of all honor, so that the name of God and the teaching may not be blasphemed. Those who have believing masters must not be disrespectful to them on the ground that they are members of the church; rather they must serve them all the more, since those who benefit by their service are believers and beloved. Teach and urge these duties. Whoever teaches otherwise and does not agree with the sound words of our Lord Jesus Christ and the teaching that is in accordance with godliness, is conceited, understanding nothing, and has a morbid craving for controversy and for disputes about words. From these come envy, dissension, slander, base suspicions, and wrangling among those who are depraved in mind and bereft of the truth, imagining that godliness is a means of gain.

1 Peter 2:18-29

Slaves, accept the authority of your masters with all deference, not only those who are kind and gentle but also those who are harsh. For it is a credit to you if, being aware of God, you endure pain while suffering unjustly. If you endure when you are beaten for doing wrong, what credit is that? But if you endure when you do right and suffer for it, you have God's approval.

Jesus supported traditional marriage so much that he himself never got married, and encouraged his followers to not get married.

Basic strawman anti-logic: All those bad guys used scripture for financial reasons. We aren't anti-gay for financial reasons. Therefore the pro-gay people must be doing it for financial reasons.

Standard Christian backstop defence: when your arguments shown to be incorrect (no it's not going to be the End of the World) and unchristian (WWJD?), you go for distraction to try to cover the holes in your story.

I'm an atheist, but I'm pretty sure Jesus never told his followers to hate anyone.  Therefore, I don't see the conundrum in someone being both a Christian and pro-gay rights.  Because let's face it, if you're anti-gay rights, you hate gays.  There's no way to intelligently defend a stance that assumes homosexuals should be afforded second-class citizen status to heterosexuals unless you hate homosexuals.
 
2013-07-15 06:04:40 PM
So if you support equal rights for everyone then you are "pro-gay"?  I'm not even sure what "pro-gay" is?  Am I supposed to be rooting for them or something?  "Gooooooooo Gay Team!"

okay, i'm usually willing to "reasonably discuss" bible stuff, but for some reason i keep reading the citations from the first book of the bible as "coming" from the book of "genitals"...  which i guess you could argue no harm/no foul on the big bang (creation incident).  still needs jizzmoppers (sorry, i mean jesuits)

No money in being anti-gay? lmao1. Convince low-income, ill-educated working stiffs that Teh Ghey is after their chilluns.2. Present your pro-corporate wealth party as the party of "God", upholding His laws3. Working people flock to the polls like an angry, disturbed hive to vote for your candidates--against their own best financial and social interests.4. Pass pro-corporate legislation to shove billions into the pockets of the wealthy elite, at the expense of social programs, infrastructure, and other public "goods"5. Profit *enormously*6. Rinse, repeat, endlessly

Oh, I get it now.  So when they say "pro-gay" they really mean "decent human being".  But they can't say "decent human being" because then that would make them "complete assholes".

Much like a skilled yogi, it takes years and years of practice to be able to perform the mental contortions necessary to argue that opposing civil rights for a marginalized group actually places you in solidarity with those on the right side of history.

The thing is, those that use quotes from the Bible to support anti-homosexual bigotry are completely ignoring the historical and social context in which the Bible was written.

They are obviously cherry-picking which of all of the hundreds of Old  Covenant "laws" they want to follow--those same laws which Jesus's sacrifice and the New Covenant are supposed do away with, so they shouldn't be using those for justification for anything anyway.

And Paul didn't want anyone to fark anyone, period because he thought the world was going to end, like, tomorrow, so we all should spend all of our time praying. Obviously, the world didn't end when he thought it would and if everyone had done as he advocated, Christianity would have died out just like the Shakers.

These bigots are actually the ones misinterpreting/misunderstanding the Bible, not the pro-gay rights Christians.

The bigots are most certainly not following Jesus's message.

But, then, the vast majority of people who proclaim themselves Christian don't know anything really about the religion they profess. If they did, a lot of these problems would go away.

/Episcopalian, aka a Christian that doesn't throw logic and thinking out the window

I'm still trying to figure out the whole "special privileges"/"gay rights" thing.  Which ones, where?  The same ones I and every other straight person have right now?

I'm sorry to hear that.  I've known a lot of good Catholics, for my part.  (Have my disagreements, but it's cool.)
