Hi Eman, welcome to the conversation! First of all, let me say that the scripture in Zech and Isaiah is to have been fulfilled during the Maccabean wars around 70 AD.
Paul Shaffer is a great keyboardist.
LMAO, Pence will NEVER be president. I applaud your zeal, but you clearly don't know what is happening.
You specifically asked a question. You even put a "q" inside of parentheses. I asked a question and reply to yours. Smarten up
Sorry, you're being completely dishonest. The USA is not a paraduse for gay people. Gay people suffer discrimination on a daily basis, in housing, employment, etc... there are still church groups that openly advocate for killing gay people. Some links are already here.
I'm replying just in time for your meeting to be over, but good luck!
Lol because it wasn't the charcoal.. What she really meant was:
We have to simplify it for you special needs trumptards. ;)
Or KAG could mean kiss a guy
Thank you for your integrity Ms. Wynne, NDP or Liberal, you can't go wrong.
It's not strictly a violation of rights. If it causes any harm to others.
I believe there is a possible misconception here. Jesus associated with sinners while he lived on Earth, if we are to believe the Biblical account which is composed of eye witness accounts. Nowhere does it endorse bigotry. However, neither does it endorse sin. The ideas in the Bible are stunningly applicable to the modern world. Where it gets foggy is, as mentioned in the OP, with cases such as the baker. His decision was perhaps not entirely Biblical, however he did interpret holy texts as such: he owns a Christian business, and because of this, he must be upholding values through this venue. Christian theology claims homosexuality to be immoral. Perhaps the equivalent in Jesus' time was the tax collector. One of Jesus' close followers was a tax collector, and Jesus didn't endorse his greed by allowing him to handle the money of the group, but rather he accepted him with open arms and loved him, encouraging him to let go of his sin and enabling him to grow morally. As such, the baker, through his own interpretation, decided he would offer an alternative, trying to love while not endorsing the sin, and enabling it.
Individual religious people and nonmajor religions that are more inclusive or progressive are why I didn't say all here. But the vast majority of people who would think as you do are either part of a larger religion that is absolutely imperialistic in nature and wants power over the state or are nearly inconsequential in terms of religion.
What can you do...we're humans..
