    The more our young ones are familiar with it, the more they will support it.

    How will that help in bringing more souls to salvation?

    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.
    FIRST: Why is an openly religious speaker with a religious agenda speaking in a public high school?

    SECOND: "pansy" is a common slur against gays so calling those who walk out of an anti-gay speech is just multiplying the hatred.

    THIRD: Dan Savage has apologised for using the term "pansy-assed" - Would you?

    Fourth: When you use the phrase "sanctity of marriage" you are whistling for the dogs, who understand what you are implying even if you did not go so far as to openly "start insulting homosexuals and homosexuality"
    “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.”

    Josie, I'm disappointed in the fact that you would use a strawman argument to dispute a well-constructed article simply because it disagrees with the spoon-fed religious doctrine we're all familiar with.

    Here's another link for you:

    Well, then why aren't Christians pushing for adultery, lying, coveting your neighbor's wife to be illegal?

    It's not a strawman, tessa. They are saying that homosexuality really isn't spoken about all that much in the NT, so it must not really be a big deal. That's like saying that since "freedom of speech" is only mentioned once in the Bill of Rights it must mean that the Founders really didn't mean that people should have it. It's okay to take it away since it was only mentioned once. No biggie.

    I'm not pushing for homosexuality or any of those things to be illegal.

    People have the right to save or damn their souls.

    It's just sad knowing that more and more souls will not be entering Heaven, imho.
