Gays are sinners? Right? Because the Bible says so? Really?

Big ups to Arnold for reminding me of this gem:

  1. Glad you liked it Jeff. Still one of my favorite scenes from the West Wing. I like the way they framed it with President Bartlett clearly struggling beforehand as to whether to confront the woman or not. By the way, the woman was modeled on Dr. Laura Schlesinger, the radio talk show host. Apparently, the West Wing stole the bit from an internet open letter to Dr. Laura. Snopes has a write-up about it:

  2. The idea of focusing on individual sins was never the message of Christ.
    The Good News (Gospel) was deliverance from sin. Both the penalty of eternal death and the grip of sin in life.
    The bible does define homosexuality as a sin. The bible also says we come out of the womb sinning (Psalms 58:3). In other words some are born with that nature.
    The bible also defines adultery as a sin to be punished by death.
    The bible says if you look upon a woman with lust you have committed adultery (Matthew 5:28). I am guilty many times over.
    Few Christians, that oppose homosexuality, will call marrying someone that is divorced a sin. Many of the pastors protesting homosexuality are themselves remarried or perform marriage ceremonies for previously divorced people. Supposedly putting Gods blessing on their union.
    Mark 10:11 And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.
    Mark 10:12 And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.

    It is the focusing on individual sins instead of the salvation from sin in general that has lead the church of today away from Christ. Many churches today are very much antichrist.
