    But here's the thing, we're ALL sinners by default. Being born again doesnt make us sinless, it blinds Jesus to our sin.

    Incorrect.

    It is also mentioned in the NT.

    a bit of an edit of another's words

    Many people are predisposed to fear "difference". That very much is human nature. Hatred of the other comes from fear, it is part of our animal nature. Being human means that some of us can make our way past that initial fear.
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
    ~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822

    Not to any extent which would justify the mentality that christians are correct in demeaning homosexuals by denying them rights.

    ??? Homosexuality was a sin before Christ and is a sin after Christ.

    Exactly. Which is why the people who do it aren't being Christ-like.

    That is very true. Which makes it odd that so many seem to miss that message, . . . a lot.

    Re: Anti-Bullying Speaker Curses Christian Teens[W:165; 667]

    Here's a hypothetical to chew on:

    Let's say I've been invited to a highschool to talk about the sanctity of marriage. Let's also say that during the course of it I get snarky like Dan and start insulting homosexuals and homosexuality. Some kids start to file out. Let's say I call them "pansy-assed."

    Is that alright?

    Because I'm supposedly religious, suddenly my actions aren't kosher, yet Dan's are? If so that's a mess of hypocrisy imo.
