Andrew Sullivan on Gay Marriage Decision: "I Think Jesus Is Weeping for Joy"
Townhall ^ | June 27, 2013 | Greg Hengler

Posted on 06/27/2013 9:21:54 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

You will almost always see the two words "I think..." when someone is claiming to know or follow the teachings of Christ but their worldview and lifestyle run in direct opposition to His. For example: "I am a Christian who loves Jesus but I think today's Supreme Court decision was a good thing."

SULLIVAN: "I think Jesus is weeping for joy. I don’t think Jesus is on the other side of this. Although I don't wanna claim to know anything about that. But I do know that Jesus was always on the side of love,”

Sullivan asserts himself on behalf of the teachings of Jesus Christ and then immediately wipes his hands clean of his assertion. Then he concludes with the patented "Jesus is love" so it's all good! Sullivan should look up the huge gulf between the Greco-Roman, or, the world's definition of love and that of Jesus Christ. Loving your neighbor begins and ends with saving their soul (the Great Commission). Hating your neighbor would be to let them continue in their sin and have them die in it.

Liberals have most likely never read one word of the Bible, but somehow know what Jesus would have thought. Fools all of them. In the liberal world, there is no such thing as sin.

Jesus is weeping because as a nation we are turning our backs on Him.

Wiki

“The core principles of Sullivan’s blog have been the style of conservatism he views as traditional. This includes fiscal conservatism, limited government, and classic libertarianism on social issues. Sullivan opposes government involvement with respect to sexual and consensual matters between adults, such as the use of marijuana and prostitution. Sullivan believes recognition of same-sex marriage is a civil-rights issue but is willing to promote it on a state-by-state legislative federalism basis, rather than trying to judicially impose the change.”

I am saddened by a man so mislead and ignorant. Jesus may be weeping, but it is more likely for the lost souls.

Jesus is weeping all right but for all the people who will die over this bad edict that brands his followers as non-people.

I don’t doubt Jesus is weeping.

I love my dogs, cat and even turtle as family members. Yes, my turtle has real personality!

I don’t want to marry or have sex with my turtle. Being on the side of love doesn’t mean “anything goes”.

>> “I think Jesus is weeping for joy.”

I think Jesus is weeping, anyhow. You got half of that right, Andrew.

>> I don’t think Jesus is on the other side of this.

I think you haven’t paid much attention to what Jesus says.

>> Although I don’t wanna claim to know anything about that.

Transparent lie, Andy boy. You DO (falsely) claim to be inside Jesus’ head. There may be a price to be paid for that.

>> “But I do know that Jesus was always on the side of love,”

Faggot lust is NOT the love of Jesus, fudgepacker. As I recall, Jesus said, “Not everyone who says to me ‘Lord, Lord’ shall inherit the kingdom of Heaven, but HE WHO DOES THE WILL OF MY FATHER WHO **IS** IN HEAVEN.

The LORD throughout Scripture has been quite specific in his abhorrence of homosex, Sullivan... you devil’s spawn. Get thee behind me!

Unfortunately, we as people who claim Christ as our Master, or at least claim to believe in Him, have looked the other way so long as couples have lived in sin relationships with the opposite sex, have a hard time pointing out the speck in our neighbor's eye.

Even so-called Christian churches turn a blind eye to couples in their congregations openly live together without the benefit of marriage and some even go so far as to perform ceremonies on couples who cohabiting at the time of their ceremonies, many of whom have already had children together!

How are we now "offended" that many in America are "demanding the term marriage" include them because they "love each other!"

I, for one, am a sinner and not claiming to be other than that and certainly am sickened by the five people in black robes who claim that "marriage cannot 'exclude' gays," yet find it equally offensive when adults who ought to know better, refer to someone whose bed they share, as their "boy friend" or "girl friend" or even more absurd, their fiancé!

I've even "offended" a casual friend, who introduced me to her fiancé and I had the audacity to ask when the wedding was scheduled.

All this is to say, when average folk in Peoria (anywhere USA) began adopting the Sodom and Gomorrah morals of Hollywood while friends and even our own family, find nothing with which to complain, even so far as "celebrating" the children welcomed to the union, we're a little late being indignant at five people in black robes extend the once holy institution called marriage include homosexuals.

We kill our babies, live in sin, and now accept an abomination!.

Jesus looks at America and definitely weeps!

For liberals, the single most reviled/ignored verse of scripture spoken by Christ:

John 8:11 "Neither do I condemn thee: go thy way; from henceforth sin no more."

Funny how that bolded point always seems to go missing. I question whether there is any difference between those who do not repent their sins and those who would throw stones.

So do Sullivan and Obama think that all loving sexual relationships should be celebrated and endorsed by the law, including incest, pedophilia, polygamy, bestility, and if not, why not?

Andrew Sullivan has become unhinged. On Bill Maher’s show SE Cupp drove him to hysteria . You Tube it. He’s stopped posting political because he’s ashamed of being called an “Obama groupie” He has no moorings.

Of course they know what sins are. Home schooling, owning firearms, strongly preferring women if you’re a man, raising children to be independent... those are sins to them.

His reaction proves he does not know Christ. Christ was both love and justice. That last part being an inconvenient truth for many. He did not support sin in any form. Ever. It’s one thing to have those supporting this nonsense rejoice, but quite another when they attempt to bring God into it — committing blasphemy. As a Christian I find that beyond offensive. Leave my God out of your depravity, Andrew!

You sir are an idiot.
Why would the son of God be happy that God’s word has just been trampled on? That sin has just been made legal and celebrated? That perversion is being forced into our society?
No sir, the Holy Trinity weeps today as more of God’s children step closer to the pits of Hell.
