No Sooner Said

about Clay Bennett...

The son of a career army officer, Bennett led a nomadic life, attending ten different schools before graduating in 1980 from the University of North Alabama with degrees in Art and History. After brief stints as a staff artist at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Fayetteville (NC) Times, he went on to serve as the editorial cartoonist for the St. Petersburg Times (1981-1994) and The Christian Science Monitor (1997-2007), before joining the staff of the ...

UNCOMMON GROUND

Bocephuys75 lamented, "This cartoon Mr. Bennett, only serves to stir the pot."

So what? That's his job ... With whom would you like to find common ground? People who hate gay people? All Americans are guaranteed equal protection under the Constitution.

Americans who want to deny other citizens Constitutionally protected freedoms on religious grounds don't deserve to live here. Gays only want the same rights as the rest of us. They aren't demanding that all Methodists, for example, should not be allowed to marry. Or that all Baptists should be denied the legal implications and provisos of a marriage certificate.

You can't argue with someone who believes he is here on earth to serve his god and is determined to spread the good news even if it kills you. You can't find common ground with someone who has god on his side.

You can keep John 3:16. I'll stick with the Golden Rule.

Blackwater48, Give it break with your rhetoric. The common ground is the golden rule! Must everything be listed in endless commentary? Why can't we just, "give peace a chance?"

I have good news for you, Bocephus. You already have common ground for those advocating rights for gays. All you are being asked to do is treat them as you would like to be treated.

Now the men of Sodom were wicked, great sinners against the LORD.Genesis 13:13ESV

But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house. And they called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them.” Lot went out to the men at the entrance, shut the door after him, and said, “I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly Genesis 18:4-7 ESV

Conservative,

That's Genesis 19, not 18. Post verse 8 where Lot offers his daughters to the rapists instead. Then post verses 30-38 where Lot's daughters get him drunk, have sex with him, and then bear his children.

Such moral, non-wicked folks in Bronze-age Mesopotamia! I thought your god spared Lot because he was good?

Your holy book is full of wickedness and the majority of it comes from the "good" guys.

Money from rich gays. The only reason Obama softened on the gay marriage issue. Contrary to what you bleeding heart Democrats think, Barry The Welfare pimp is not about social justice. Barrack Obama is all about power and money....period. Thug life foever. Obama's Maciavellian ambition, pragmatic morality, and cunning is one of the few things I admire about him. He has destroyed eveyone in his way and could care less about gays, the poor, etc. it's about class warfare and his elitist desire to destroy the "Bible Thumping" middle class to create a small group of haves and a huge number of have nots.

"Are you on disability?"

Negative.

"You seem to be obsessed with everyones medical condition."

Not at all. You and your ilk seem to be obsessed with saying things that only a mentally handicapped or psychotic person would say. When people say things like "Barry The Welfare pimp", "Thug life foever", "...but the Progressive desire to destroy marriage and how it benefits children.", and "...that's why I wear a Rolex and you my friend roll with a Casio.", it leads me to believe that there might be something mentally wrong with you and/or anyone else that talks like that.

"what disability meds are you on today or should I say how many White Russians have you had....Dude?"

Do you realize how nonsensical and wrong the things you say are? Jefferey Katzenberg isn't a homosexual. disability meds? White Russians? This is why I think something is mentally wrong with you.

LMFAO!

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/29/jim-carrey-fox-news_n_2981222.html

Carrey's full statement against Fox News is below:

Since I released my "Cold Dead Hand" video on Funny or Die this week, I have watched Fux News rant, rave, bare its fangs and viciously slander me because of my stand against large magazines and assault rifles. I would take them to task legally if I felt they were worth my time or that anyone with a brain in their head could actually fall for such irresponsible buffoonery. That would gain them far too much attention which is all they really care about.

I'll just say this: in my opinion Fux News is a last resort for kinda-sorta-almost-journalists whose options have been severely limited by their extreme and intolerant views; a media colostomy bag that has begun to burst at the seams and should be emptied before it becomes a public health issue.

I sincerely believe that in time, good people will lose patience with the petty and poisonous behavior of these bullies and Fux News will be remembered as nothing more than a giant culture fart that no amount of Garlique could cure.

I wish them all the luck that accompanies such malevolence.

Conservative - think context!

No one includes you and me, Conservative.

The passages that you and I cited are bracketed by the following:

For I am not ashamed of the gospel; it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who has faith, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed through faith for faith; as it is written, "The one who is righteous will live by faith." Romans 1:16-17

and

the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction,since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God; they are now justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus... Romans 3:22-24

The promise isn't just for you and me. The promise is offered to everyone, including folks whom you think are not worthy to receive it. That is the promise that we remember this weekend. If it isn't for "them", it isn't for you either.

You quoted Scripture about the lost condition of mankind apart from Jesus Christ. I believe every word.

Now, what do those verses have to do with the fact that a practicing homosexual will not inherit the Kingdom of God?

Once again, I will also quote to you Scripture pertinent to the fact that a practicing homosexual will not inherit the Kingdom of God. I will use the NIV this time just in case you haven't grasped the other translations.

Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11.

I think I need to break it down for you.

First I ask that you to definitely state whether homosexuality is sinful behavior or not. I suspect that you don't believe it is sinful behavior and that you will refuse to state so. Prove me wrong.

No, What part of grace do you not comprehend?

"What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?" Romans 6:1

" God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?" Romans 6:2

Go ahead, tell me.

BTW, I knew you wouldn't answer my questions :

"First I ask that you to definitely state whether homosexuality is sinful behavior or not. I suspect that you don't believe it is sinful behavior and that you will refuse to state so. Prove me wrong."

Again read carefully:

Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

JonRoss,

Reading your postings over time, it is plainly evident you are a seething angry – A) KKK wizard, or B) a skinhead lieutenant in the local Aryan Nation affiliate. You are a textbook example of the need for further psychiatric evaluations/treatments within our medical community so openly debated after the recent Sandy Hook massacre. I certainly hope no one sells you any kind of weapon, nor allow you to possess a concealed weapons permit. Considering the hate literally oozing out of your pores, it is a dangerous proposition to even let you in the kitchen.

Additionally; Now that you have been outed as a skeavy real estate swindler and environment defiler and scrap metal thief with a commonality of the Camorra, your hypocritical ranting has all intellectual content and credibility of a near empty jar of mayonnaise that’s been sitting at the bottom of a garbage can for three days in the summer’s heat. I’d be willing to bet the drooling, giggling mother/older sister who sired you hide shamefully in recognition of what they had done.

MTJohn,

Since you obviously are having trouble comprehending Scripture, let me try a common sense approach. In that list of those who are the unrighteous along with homosexuals and who will not inherit the Kingdom of God, are drunkards.

Now, I have been around drunkards all my life. I have never known one who claimed to be a Christian and who even attended a church where everyone knew that person was a drunkard. They just don't attend worship services, read their Bible or even openly claim to be a Christian.

I have never been in a church service where someone was obviously drunk. Furthermore, would a true assembly of Christians allow such a thing? Drunkards are by nature unruly and disruptive. Would a true assembly of Christians even allow such a one to have membership or even a leadership role in the church? Of course not, of course not!

So, would a true assembly of Christians allow a homosexual membership, a teaching role or leadership role? Of course not, of course not.

Think about how absurd such a thing would be.

Oh Clay, I LOVE YOU. I know just what you're saying. I'm not homosexual, but so many of my dear friends are and want so very much to marry their long-time partners. I've lived through the agony of my mother, who apparently was lesbian trying to go straight and, in the process, made a living hell for her husband and us, her children. She quoted Bible all the time, and all of us suffered terribly. If only her times had been more enlightened, how different and happier all our lives could have been.

Again, you failed to do a minimal amount of research to dig into the details. President Obama has not denied a soul a doggone thing. That decision came from the Department of Defense.

The reason those claims were denied is simply because the Fort Hood shooter has not been convicted yet. Once the facts of what happened are established, then the claims can be resubmitted and will probably be approved.

"As I have said before, Barack Hussien Obama and his political organization are the greatest hate group to exist on U.S. soil since the treasonous Confederates came together in an attempt to destroy the U.S."

And as is usually the case, it is rare that a thing you have to offer is based on any fact or reasonable assumption.

But carry on. It's your credibility that is always on the line, which now is lower than an earth worm.

Clearly you have no inkling of the legalities involved. Until the military airs in court all that transpired on that day and until the prosecution of Major Nidal Hasan has been completed, any request for military awards would be incomplete.

"The fact that Obama refuses to give the Purple Heart to those deserving it shows how he looks at the U.S. military and radical Islam."

Good God, you are worse than pathetic.

I'd be willing to bet a thousand bucks that you don't own a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of.

You've been caught in too many lies to prove that you are a pretentious twit.

I've got a thousand bucks to give you if you can prove one claim of your alleged lifestyle to be true.

conservative said...First I ask that you to definitely state whether homosexuality is sinful behavior or not. I suspect that you don't believe it is sinful behavior and that you will refuse to state so.

I'll ask one more time and then let you have the last word.

What part of grace don't you understand?

Of course the homosexual is a sinner. But, then, so are you and I. But, especially on this morning, we are reminded that we no longer live under the Law but with the promise of forgiveness and salvation.

Does the homosexual deserve that promise? No. Do you deserve that promise? No. Will the homosexual receive that promise because he stops sinning? No. Will you receive that promise because you have stopped sinning. If the homosexual receives that promise will he stop sinning? No. If you receive that promise will you stop sinning? No.

But, thanks be to God who has given us the victory in Christ Jesus. He is risen indeed! Alleluia!
