conservative said- "1 Corinthians 6:9-10 in plain and simple language states that no practicing Homosexual will inherit the kingdom of God."
conservative, kinda lame and selective since you left out all the other "sins" in that verse that would keep you out of heaven.
Specifically, idolaters, adulterers, thieves, the greedy, drunkards, slanderers, and swindlers.
Classic case of christian cherry picking to justify their beliefs.
Gotta love those cafeteria christians.
I guess none of our pious christian posters here are even going to attempt to address the other "sins" pointed out in the article and by other posters.
Maybe because they are guilty of those "sins"?
Please tell us why you should judge others while disobeying your deities commands including...
-"Judge not, that ye be not judged."
-"Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye."
Oh, that's right, you christians only selectively follow the commands of your deity.
Helloooo. Can you say hypocrisy?
So if Fox did a series on say, Chris Christie or Rand Paul, does anyone think the Democratic Party would not host presidential primary debates?
What a bunch of GOP crybabies.
I see the the Flat Earth Society is well represented here today.
The same science deniers, (usually strongly represented by evangelicals), have denied the reality of the natural sciences for hundreds of years.
The petroleum industry and utilities appreciate your support.
Maybe a Fox mini series on Ted Cruz?
Uhh, what is to stop Fox from producing a series highlighting a conservative? Indeed, there was speculation that they would air the Clinton series.
Like it or not, by any reasonable measure, there probably is not a more qualified candidate for president than Hillary Clinton.
Hey Fox,instead of crying crocodile tears do a mini-series on a presumptive candidate like Christie. Of course you could also trot out Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachman and highlight their accomplishments.
TheCommander says.."hotdiggity, It seems like a Christian has NO responsibilities.....
Seriously, you are saying the Bible does not instruct believers to help the "poor, the sick, and the disadvantaged" as I posted?
"Feed the hungry! Help those in trouble! Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you shall be as bright as day. And the Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy you with all good things, and keep you healthy too; and you will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring.
And the crowds asked [John the Baptist], "What then should we do?" In reply he said to them, "Whoever has two coats must share with anyone who has none; and whoever has food must do likewise.
In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.
But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him?
1 John 3:17
If among you, one of your brothers should become poor, in any of your towns within your land that the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart or shut your hand against your poor brother, but you shall open your hand to him and lend him sufficient for his need, whatever it may be. Take care lest there be an unworthy thought in your heart and you say, ‘The seventh year, the year of release is near,’ and your eye look grudgingly on your poor brother, and you give him nothing, and he cry to the Lord against you, and you be guilty of sin. You shall give to him freely, and your heart shall not be grudging when you give to him, because for this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in all that you undertake. For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.
Deuteronomy 15 7-11
Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute. Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.
Proverbs 31 8-9
I could list a dozen more. Amazing that you would suggest that if a person calls himself a Christian he has no responsibility to follow the instructions of the Bible.
I will not even go into the fact that Jesus set the classic examples for charity for his followers to (supposedly) emulate.
Jeez, do you fundies even read, let alone understand, the teachings of the Bible and Jesus Christ?
conservative...Apparently you prefer the rape, murder, and genocide in the Bible more than you prefer the same in the Koran?
Your attempts to sanctify the higher morality of the Bible as opposed to the Koran falls flat.
Jeez, do you fundies even read your Bible?
He was a healer, a provider of universal health care, a man of compassion who treated those with preexisting medical conditions.
He promoted empathy and support for the poor, the sick, and the disadvantaged.
He implored his followers to follow his example to care for your fellow man. He was Christ.
One would think that with 76% of the adult population claiming to be Christian there would be a groundswell of support from them for affordable health care or better yet, universal health care.
Instead I see Christian conservatives typically embrace a philosophy of having no responsibility towards their fellow man.
I have to wonder if some christian conservatives even read their Bible and the teachings of the person they worship.
Jt6gR3hM says "I guess you haven't heard that personal giving to charity is at the highest levels in this country and that Conservatives and especially religious ones give at the highest level".
Gotta love those three 100 foot "charity" monoliths erected recently here, huh? $700,000 of charity, right. Here are just a few people who appreciate the giving "at the highest level" by conservatives. They loves them some conservative donors.
Pastors Creflo Dollar, Benny Hine, Jim and Tammy Baker, Paula White, Robert Tilton, Joyce Meyer, etc. all appreciate the charity.
