    Read your history closer. It also shows the Church changes and adapts.

    Not on fundamental issues. The Church is not meant to be swayed by the times and fashions.

    No, it's an apt comparison because it is about the misreading. Those who used slavery in the bible as their argument misread the bible as poorly as people do today concerning homosexuality.

    No, not the case. There is a big difference actually.

    No, it isn't. The issues isn't about homosexuality versus slavery, but about people misreading the Bible. I that context, there is no real difference. None.

    We can tackle the other issue later. But right now I prefer we focus on what was actually said.

    What was said is that homosexuality is a sin and they will not inherit heaven. That is what was said.

    Everybody needs to accept that davidtaylorjr regards the bible as solid, factual, indisputable evidence and a valid source for information.

    That speaks volumes in and of itself.

    In all my years of internet opining, I have yet to meet anybody, who believes this way, that are willing to consider the fact that they could be just plain wrong about anything. It is futile.

    Myself, when I come across people that scoff at any science, facts, history, or evidence that is contrary to their biblical beliefs, all the while, at the same time, believing in the impossible absurdities, such as told in the bible, I just accept them for who they are and wish them a very pleasant day. That's all you can really do with them unless you want to escape in to that fantasy world and sing Kumbaya. (I could never pretend to do that with a straight face, but I digress.)

    When I was in the navy I shared birthing with three guys that were deep into playing Dungeons and Dragons. They would go on and on and on about it. Sometimes even to the point of heated discussions. Myself, not knowing or caring about the fantasy of Dungeons and Dragons in the least, their conversations used to drive me up the wall. Especially after TAPS. This D&D world was real to them. I was the odd man out. But they were great shipmates and very good at their jobs.

    Moral: If someone chooses to become saturated in a world of make believe, it doesn't make them a bad person. It just makes them someone hard to reason with from a factual and logical standpoint. And when you get to that point with them, the best thing to do is smile and say, "Have an awesome day." Most likely, they are very good people even though their sense of reality may be somewhat impossible to wrap your head around.

    But better to have a peaceful, (albeit apparently delusional,) christian than a violent, as well as delusional, jihadist.

    It could be worse.
