Skip to comments.MyTake: The Bible condemns a lot, but here’s why we focus on homosexuality
Posted on 05/22/2012 5:45:32 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
Are conservative Christians hypocritical and selective when it comes to the Bibles condemnation of homosexuality? With all that the Bible condemns, why the focus on gay sex and same-sex marriage?
Given the heated nature of our current debates, its a question conservative Christians have learned to expect. Look, we are told, the Bible condemns eating shellfish, wearing mixed fabrics and any number of other things. Why do you ignore those things and insist that the Bible must be obeyed when it comes to sex?

Because a few sins have their own PACs and lobbyists
Hate the sin, love the sinner.
Exactly, the other sins aren’t being shoved down our kids’ throats by government policy that says that we have to allow it or we’ll be penalized.
Leftists don’t really care about homosexuals. They care about destroying Christianity and Christian culture. They’re simply mad at God for existing and seek His death. (Darwin stated as much)
You know that the founding fathers were thinking of them specifically, just ask Ginsburg and the Wise Latino on the court, and ask the brilliant constitutional scholar Obama.
The other sins aren’t foul, disease-ridden acts.
Are conservative Christians hypocritical
That is all the farther I got. They speak for the 20% of liberals that think that the 80% do not have any rights.
Even above and beyond Christianity, homosexuality has always been recognized by most human societies for what it is - an unnatural and disgusting act.
The Ancient Romans looked down on the acceptance of homosxuality by some Greek societies as a symbol of their cultural degeneracy. Until that is, when that evil and filthy practise had infiltrated their own and even then, open homosexuality was often regarded with disdain or amusement. One of the statements made about Julies Caesar by his political opponents was “He was every woman’s man and every man’s woman.”
Right until the deviant bastard tries to force his perversions down my kid's and grandkids throats or tries to force me to accept his evil as 'normal'.
God wants us to be happy. Societies that countenance homosexuality cannot be happy. Hence the condemnation.
"Hate the sin, love the sinner."?????
Not when the sinner is deliberately opposed to God.
The comments are very interesting. You have the “You are God, God is you” guy, the “there has never been any proof that gays choose to be gay” (I must have missed all the proof of the “gay” gene that causes them to be homosexual in the first place) and the troll who says “gays spread AIDS and cancer more than anyone and need to be removed from the US”.
What a sick, stupid society we have become.
I've heard that old chestnut so often I honestly wonder if those using it really do "hate the sin."
I once asked a relative "You hang so many qualifiers and caveats on the prohibition against homosexuality every time it's mentioned, I seriously wonder how you intend to teach your child there's actually anything wrong with the practice?"
Her answer: "I don't know that I will."
That told me all I needed to know about her sincerity.
It’s far worse to damage the soul than the flesh!
...the arrogant cannot stand before You. You hate all who do evil...
> “Theyre simply mad at God for existing and seek His death. (Darwin stated as much)”
Do you have a specific passage in mind?
Yes, even then.
“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;”
The person "opposed to God" should be the target of the Works of Mercy
Some of us here were once those "deliberately opposed to God." That's exactly why the whole human race needed (and needs) a Savior.
