    I agree, if you have old backward views than the reality of progress will leave you behind.

    I would have to say the SBC will be the last to give up their passive hatred for the gays. Excuse me, I mean their hatred for the gay "sin."

    They have mellowed in the last 25 years though. I remember being at service at 2nd Bapt. Church and the "Dr." Fred Young was on the pulpit doing his anti-gay crusade, circa 1986, telling everyone how they were demon possessed.

    He showed a picture of a man he said could be easily found on Montrose Blvd. in Houston. I immediately recognized the picture to be that of Freddy Mercury.

    He proceeded to tell the congregation how the demon actually deforms and distorts the body of a homosexual. Pointing at Freddie's overbite, etc. The picture looked something like this.



    Eventually, the Catholics are going to have to come to terms with homosexuality as their congregation becomes more and more tolerant, unlike the SBC, and they deal with their own internal issues regarding pedophilia, homosexuality and other assorted sexual issues.

    I think the SBC will be the last to become tolerant.

    It's GREAT to be me. --- "45% liberal/55% conservative"

    No. Your problem is that you think homosexuals are sex crazed child molesters that want to take out heterosexuality. If you would like to tour the real world, you can clearly see that this is not the case.

    Do you mean which religion will still be stuck in the dark ages when it comes to compassion and tolerance? Which religion will follow the path of extremist Islam?

    Still nothing though you insist.
    The only thing there that says anything against homosexuals is effeminate and sodomites. Sodomites are people who have sex through oral and/or anal, or people who have sex with animals. The only issue that you have here is simple enough. It's okay when a man and a woman commit sodomy, but not two same sex people. Interesting. Sounds like someone is only against it because it's "Icky"

    Not out of context. Those are the verses we just skip over now a days because life has changed.

    Which religion is that? I'm talking about good Christian churches that have resisted the charms of total selfishness. It's not easy putting up with the Left's steaming piles of enlightenment.

    Not sure, hopefully those that adhere to Biblical truth instead of tossing it out or having some kind of "revelation" stating that homosexuality isn't sinful and morally right.

    You must consider Jesus to be very incompetent to think you are the one who speaks for Him and you are more important than Him. What utterly insulting hubris to think you know what is important and He does not.

    Jesus spoke of many things, conducted sermon after sermon, and yet you think he is so feeble that he completely overlooked this supposedly wicked sin that so dominates your postings? If He shared your hatred, He would have said so and said so repeatedly BECAUSE he is the Son of God and knows what is important.

    To think anything else shows such a contemptuous and dismissive attitude towards Jesus that a person must think Jesus follows them instead of the other way around.
