Georgetown Professor: Loving Jesus 'Interestingly Homoerotic'
Truth Revolt ^ | 12/24/13 | Elisha Krauss

Posted on 12/25/2013 6:44:42 AM PST by SoFloFreeper

Michael Eric Dyson tells Joy Reid the Bible could be viewed as homoerotic.

...The Ed Show was guest hosted by MSNBC contributor Joy Reid, who kicked off the show discussing Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson's comments about homosexuals...Reid welcomed Georgetown professor Michael Eric Dyson, whom she praised for his knowledge on American history and Biblical theology.

Reid started the segment saying that the Bible can be manipulated to support any argument. She admitted that the Bible views the act of homosexual activity as a "sin" but also said, in her opinion, that the Bible is also anti-Christmas trees. Reid used Jeremiah 10:10 for her "The Bible is against Christmas trees" argument...

Dyson then continued, " Look through the Bible, there's a lot of interesting things. The same men who sat up in a church of all men 'I put my God, Jesus over all women, I love Him more than I love her!' Hmmm... do you really? That sounds interestingly homoerotic to people who are outside your religious tradition! I'm not suggesting it is but I'm suggesting there are some very interesting narrative tensions within the Bible itself and within Christianity beyond that."

Since he was on the Special Ed show, you can bet Dyson has an “interestingly homoerotic” thing going for Obama. One of the “tingle” boys.

Those pervs just have to cast their dark veil of corruption over everything. Even the Bible.
Try that with the Quran, if you dare.

I really wish some of these vile, overtly deviant liberal scum would start feeling God’s wrath. Hell, at this point I would settle for ANY kind of meaningful backlash, punishment, or adverse action against them for their “in your face” defiance and ouright ridicule of Christianity and faith in God. Really don’t get how these scum continually get a pass... in fact, they are becoming increasingly vile and violent, all without repercussions.

Jeremiah 10:10...

But the Lord is the true God;
he is the living God, the eternal King.
When he is angry, the earth trembles;
the nations cannot endure his wrath.

Hmmmm....I don’t see anything about Christmas trees there??

So do these idiots make any distiction among the Greek (the language the New Testament was written in) words for love: agápe, éros, philía, and storgē. It is hard to argue that loving God is erotic when the word used is agápe rather than éros.

Although other parts of Scripture have been quoted on this Duck Dynasty issue with A&E, the following in Romans, chapter 1, is a key part and understanding ... as to how God’s wrath plays into this ...

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.

17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,

19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.

20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,

21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

22 Professing to be wise, they became fools,

23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,

25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.

27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;

29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers,

30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful;

32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

THAT would certainly be “dynamite” to LGBT-types ... :-) ...

I’m sure they are “foaming at the mouth” at this part ...

For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

Also, in reference to what someone else said about homosexuality being another sin - just like all the sins listed in the Bible ... I’ll have to point out that it’s QUITE UNIQUE in comparison to other sins. I said the following in another posting elsewhere ... AND ... this shows how God’s wrath plays into it.

The unique thing about what God said in Romans 1 — is that this particular sin is actually a “judgement” from God in that He has them debasing themselves in such a way. THIS (what the LGBTs promote) is actually God’s judgement upon them in that they are to do these things to themselves. They, therefore, receive god’s judgement in the “here and now” for clearly rejecting what god has made clear to the,.

SO ... while these are all sins - fornication, adultery, thieving, drunkenness, slandering, swindling - and will not be allowed into Heaven ... none of these are, in and of themselves - a condition which God imposes upon people for their rejection of what God has made clear to them,

On the other hand — the LGBT lifestyle is a specific condition and judgement of God Himself - upon these people,

AND THEREFORE, God has put upon them the absolute worst of the worst sin possible in a human being - in order to thoroughly DEBASE them to the ultimate extent in THIS LIFE, in the HERE AND NOW and not upon “Judgement Day”.

LGBT-people are a “walking advertisement” of God thoroughly debasing someone to the maximum extent possible, in a human being. They are walking around with a “neon flashing sign” — saying — “Look at me! God has not even waited until Judgement Day to judge me!”

Interestingly this sin predates the Law.
It is rejection of God’s design for Man and
Woman, Marriage and Family. The sin is so infecteous
God destroyed Sodom and the surrounding cities for
pacticing it.

God clearly and unequivocally condemns homosexuality in:

- the first laws he gave to mankind (what we call the law of the patriarchs) as evidenced by his judgment on Sodom and Gomorrah.

- the law of Moses, a special law for his set apart people to show the way to the Christ.

- the law of Christ, the law all mankind is now subject to.

At no point in time has God ever endorsed, condoned or even permitted homosexuality.

that the Bible is also anti-Christmas trees. Reid used Jeremiah 10:10 for her "The Bible is against Christmas trees" argument...

He managed to pervert that particular scripture. Read it and you will find that "the bible is against Christmas trees", If you worship them.

Homosexuals are obsessed with sex. No matter what the subject, they can always find a double-entendre to giggle girlishly about.

They are basically emotionally frozen at puberty.

Exorcist Author William Blatty Challenges Georgetown’s Catholic Status

Georgetown U has slipped into the crevasse ... any and all doubts were erased when the university's president defended Sandra Fluke's demand for free condoms. Blatty has it right. The university should be stripped of its catholic status.
