    “Rediculously [sic] stupid and pointless” meaning that it has once again been made clear that mainstream America does not agree with the petty immoral position that you keep trying to put forth as being somehow “mainstream”.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    And please, turn that Self Righteous Bus over to the side of the Pretentious Turnpike would ya?

    If this had been a man advocating for gay rights or abortion or whatever else the Left deem appropriate and he got fired as a result there'd have been a war cry like the world had never heard, class action lawsuits filed the very same day, rainbow warriors marching on every city in the country, so let's stop with the BS double standard spiel, alright? You'd lose that argument every time.

    but to answer your question, yes, everyone is entitled to their opinion, and when asked what they view, based on their personal beliefs, they've every right to say what's on their mind without repercussion.
    The issue here is that those on the wrong have a very selective, one-sided view of free speech, and assume that those of us on the right have a corresponding one-sided view.

    Those on the wrong are quite happy with censoring expression of beliefs that they find disagreeable to them, and find it difficult to believe and understand that the view of free speech that the rest of us have whereby allowing the expression of beliefs that we do not find agreeable is really the whole point of it.

    The best example of Christs teaching on sin comes from his dealing with the crowd and the prostitute. SURELY...do not judge...thats [sic] not your place and we all fall short. But the sin? Well...the sin was still the sin. He didnt [sic] say, let this poor woman alone to continue to be a prostitute. Go forth...and sin no more.
    Not a prostitute. A woman caught in the act of committing adultery. A woman who was married to one man, and caught having sex with another.

    There are some often-missed subtleties to this story.

    It takes two to commit adultery, and yet only the women was being brought forth for judgement. There has to have been a man involved in the act, who was equally guilty, and subject to the same penalty.

    I've given to understand that the actual words Jesus used to refer to “he who is without sin” referred to the same sin. In other words, he was speaking to a gang of adulterers; probably including the very man who commuted adultery with this woman, perhaps specifically for the purpose of entrapping her so that she could be brought forth and used to entrap Jesus. I don't know that I can support this, but I almost have a sense that her “adultery” might really have been a rape.

    It's recorded that while this conversation was going on, Jesus was writing with his finger in the dirt on the ground. It is not recorded what he was writing, but surely the men gathered there was what he was writing, and it surely indicated that Jesus knew exactly what they were up to, what they had done and intended to do to this woman, and for what purpose.
