Peers do use Leviticus as justification for their bullying. It is documented, to deny it is to deny reality.
    Jesus told an adulteress her sins were forgiven and to go and sin no more. Christianity is all about redemption and Christ spent his life associating with sinners. To state that Christians don't associate with people living a sinful lifestyle is ridiculous. Anyone with the slightest knowledge of Christianity realizes that Jesus became man to save the condemned.

    do you think you can make such a dishonest comment and not get challenged on it?

    got any evidence, whatsoever, for you silly claim?

    I thought not.
    Yeah. The sum total of your posts regarding same. You contradict yourself all the time in order for it to be just as I describe.

    and yet, Paul commanded his followers to NOT associate with sinners, and to cast them out.

    1st Corinthians 5:11 "But now I am writing you that you must not associate with anyone who calls himself a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a slanderer a dunkard or a swindler. With such a man do not even eat. What business is it of mine to judge those outside the Church? Are you not to judge those inside? God will judge those outside. 'Expel the wicked man from among you'".

    Ignoring the infighting within the thread, I'd venture to say that no one in the OP was correct. Savage and some of the Christian students seem to have gone to the event with an agenda. Savage went to offend and some Christians went to be offended. Frankly, I don't understand why anyone is surprised at what happened. Hell, if I had known about the event and could have bet on it I would be beyond wealthy today.

    Extremist meets extremists and people expect peace? LOL!

    who gives a ****? what matters is what actually causes bullying and what can be done to stop it.

    St. Paul was referring to a man who was having sex with his father's wife and refused to stop or repent. The rest of the verse which you omitted goes:"hand the unrepentant man over to Satan so that his sinful nature would be destroyed but his spirit saved on the day of the Lord. Meaning, do not be tempted by his actions. He is not sorry he will not repent so let him indulge in his sinfulness until his life becomes so wretched he will return to God on his own.
    In Paul's second letter to the Corinthians we find out that the man became sorrowful and remorseful after being expelled. Once he repented he was welcomed back into the Church.

    so until a sinner repents for his sins, he is unwelcome in the fellowship of God?

    interesting.

    Its impossible to have fellowship with God without heeding his word. This doesn't mean perfection it means trying. Everyone sins. You have to work at turning away from it to God. If your obstinate and persistent in sin how can you feel welcomed?
