'This Week' Panel: Are Evangelicals Out of Touch With Mainstream Views? [ABC Loves Sodomy]
ABC/Yahoo ^ | Easter Sunday, 2014 | Mary Alice Parks

Posted on 04/20/2014 1:50:33 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Despite major changes in public opinion in recent years, Rev. Franklin Graham, son of perhaps the most famous American preacher of all time, Billy Graham, reiterated his strong opposition to gay marriage and gay adoption today on ABC's "This Week."

As a part of a special Easter week discussion on religion, Graham told ABC News' Martha Raddatz that gays could go to heaven if they repent.

"Franklin Graham is a sinner, and I'm no better than a gay person. I'm a sinner," he added. "But I've been forgiven, and I've turned from my sins. For any person that's willing to repent in turn, God will forgive."

ABC News' Cokie Roberts replied: "A lot of gay people feel that they are sinners, but not because they're gay."

Cokie Roberts, what do you know?

I have no problem with gays going to heaven as long as they go through a car wash first. They are such pains in the bu??.

The problem with “mainstream views” is that they are whatever the commie, wacko liberals in the state controlled “media” and the communist DemocRAT Party want them to be. They have nothing to do with what your civilized, normal American believes.

Evangelical leaders should be prepared to point these people in the pro-sodomite press to the website of the Centers for Disease Control. Ask them if they have read the “MSM” warnings. Men having sex with men is a deadly proposition. There is a contradiction in the Executive branch of our government where the President promotes sodomy while the agency that looks after the health of our citizens warns them of the potentially deadly consequences of sodomy. The Bible on the other hand is consistent in its warnings of sodomy. It is an abomination and sinful.

According to the left, the Bible, and the U.S. Constitution are moldy, outdated relics. The left is more than happy to step in and fill the void to help us barbarians get with the times.

To the degenerates in the media, anus worship and playing in each other’s own excrement is “mainstream,” while Christianity is deemed aberrant.

'This Week' Panel: Are Evangelicals Out of Touch With Mainstream Views?
Mainstream is "out of touch", literally. The only proper sexual relationship is between a husband and a wife that could result in having a baby.

Everything else is a sin. Including contraception, oral and masturbation.

The Mainstream are just as bad as the homosexuals.

Christians were not part of the mainstream in the Roman Empire 1900 years ago. A lot of them were killed. History records that it didn’t stop them. Neither will America’s infatuation with secular religion. What will stop Christians is the continuing willingness to declare Christians of other sects and rites to be apostates and agents of Satan.

I’m curious, I wonder if those homos have to wear adult diapers after years of anal probing with large objects? I mean really, there’s no way they could have any muscle tone back there anymore.

They do. There’s also some kind of corrective surgery many of them wind up getting. After so many years of destroying their anal/colon region and its accompanying muscles, they lose their ability to hold in their own feces. Not that the stench apparently seems to bother them.

The cultural “normalizing” of this kind of grotesque deviancy is sheer insanity.

Me too! I am an Evangelical. But then I saw the the 5 beliefs of a fundamentalist:

1. Biblical inspiration and the inerrancy of scripture as a result of this
2. Virgin birth of Jesus
3. Belief that Christ's death was the atonement for sin
4. Bodily resurrection of Jesus
5. Historical reality of the miracles of Jesus

I believe all of them, so I reckon that makes me a Fundamentalist Evangelical?

Gay marriage is not a sin, sodomy is.

There's no such thing as marriage between two people of the same gender.

No...they are out of touch with their Creator and me. Just making sure we keep things in perspective here.

The only proper sexual relationship is between a husband and a wife that could result in having a baby.

So if a wife has a hysterectomy and cannot conceive she and her husband can no longer have sex because it would be a sin?

Everything else is a sin. Including contraception, oral and masturbation.

Not really.

ABC Loves Sodomy

We need to write letters, comments to websites, and tweets, that openly discuss all the disgusting things that the rump rangers do to each other and our kids.

We need to openly ask why the RATs, the government schools and the state-run media, support this extremely unhealthy and destructive practice.

We need to start listing off all the life threatening STDs they carry just to enjoy the queer deathstyle.

We need to be prepared to rattle off all of the above filthy facts whenever accused of being "out of touch with mainstream views" and demand they defend them.

They are the ones out of touch and they deserve to be exposed for it.

I think the poster meant that the only true marriage is between folks who COULD have children, if all their parts were working correctly. Even if the parts are not working correctly, they at least have the proper parts that COULD create little human beings.

Homosexuals will NEVER be able to create children, as a result of their mutual sexual activity, even if all their own parts ARE working correctly.

The ‘mainstream’ (democrats) are hyping the gay issue to get donations from the gay community.

In a few months they'll hype single women not being paid enough ... And right before the election a retrospective on violence done to blacks over the past hundred years (by democrats, but that won't be mentioned) followed by an interview with a white Republican with a southern accent.

The press plays their role - and at the correct time.... This 'time' is shake the money tree...

We are in the world but not of the world. We are transformed thru Christ not conformed to Satan. We are in touch with God; the world is a passing thing. Choose God, choose Life. Know God , no fear. No God, know fear. Choose instead to follow Jesus and adhere to His commands, not to the deception and temptation of the world (Satan’s playground).
