Jt6gR3hM said...I don't really know about discrimination but I have heard that he and his mom have supposedly been condemning people to Hell.

To the contrary, the Cross is Jesus ultimate statement and a get out of hell free card.

Jt6gR3hM said...The same applies to Fleabaggers trying to guilt trip conservatives about not being able to live up to their ideals and rules.

So, it's OK to fail to live up to the conservative "ideals and rules", but only if you are a conservative.

Eight years trying to work with the Republicans in Congress would be the equivalent.

fairmon said... Trickle down has been replaced with borrow, print and redistribute.

That's a pretty fair assessment of what has happened to the Social Security trust as it was used to pay for tax cuts for the wealthy.

Jt6gR3hM said...But is it the contemporary reason it "is" a season of celebration? After all it is so 10,000 BC ... Civilization has been there, done that, got the shirt and out grew it already

You are correct, Jt6. The contemporary reason for the season is all about $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. Neither the solstice nor the remembrance of the birth of our Savior have much to do with it.

nucanuck said...Enough itchy fingered gun owners may be the solution to unemployment. Reduce the population enough and we will have full employment.

I presume that you meant this tongue-in-cheek, but there is a measure of truth to it. There is a relevant line in Hunger Games - Catching Fire, "remember who the enemy is!" When the rebellion comes, we will be fighting each other and both sides in the conflict will be serving the interest of our shared enemy.

Conservative - Scripture has much more to say about social justice than it does about homosexuality. Please explain why conservative Christians oppose social justice with as much vigor as they oppose gay marriage.

fairmon said...I don't consider wanting to keep as much as others with the same income greedy at all. I don't consider objecting to having more confiscated and redistributed than others with the same income as greedy at all.

Yet, you would suggest that gay couples who object to having more confiscated and redistributed than others with the same income are greedy. Something in your logic does not compute.

nucanuck said...Is a ratio of 97 to 3 divided or just fringe noise?

...and the 3 pretty much funded by the petroleum industry.

AndrewLohr said...A deep problem with equalizing money by force is that it requires non-equal Equalizers.

BINGO! Perhaps for the first time Andrew actually understands one of Clay's cartoons and agrees with it!

conservative said...I do thank you for not even attempting to refute anything I wrote to you yesterday.

You are assuming that most of what you wrote yesterday was worth reading. I do not share that assumption and I din't read most of it.

I am not sure what you mean by "Scripture is very clear about the distinction between sin, which God hates and sinners, whom God loves" because one cannot separate sin from the sinner. Sin is not an inanimate object like a rock with no awareness of God and his requirements.

conservative said...I constantly marvel at your intransigence in refusing to believe the word of God on the sin of homosexuality... I am not sure what you mean by "Scripture is very clear about the distinction between sin, which God hates and sinners, whom God loves" because one cannot separate sin from the sinner.

The operative word is GRACE.

You insist on taking that one passage in Romans 2 regarding homosexuality out of context. I read Romans 1 - 3 as a unit. The list of sins in those chapters, although probably not complete, is pretty comprehensive. It is sufficient to condemn everyone - you included. But, the story doesn't end with God's hatred for sins. The list of sins is bookended with two promises - the passages that I posted above. God judges us on the basis of the promises (His love for sinners), not on the basis of our sins.

You keep insisting that God hates homosexuals because God hates homosexuality. If that is the way that you want God to judge the homosexual, that might well be the way that you will also be judged. If God's grace is not sufficient for the homosexual, it probably is not sufficient for you either.

Instead of putting your confidence in your own ability to know the mind of God and, acting on His behalf, to judge others, put your trust in the promise.
