It is true that belivers sometimes get hung up on different things and they become mainstream... so to speak, with different issues getting more attention over others. My point here is not to just chat about the subject matter and get an argument going or spark controversy, but to gain some constructive input., as it is go, do you not, why not?
Thanks again for the comments... from the land down under! Cheers
I appreciate your response and its nature. From a Christian perspective, how would one of the varietes of sexual behaviour "he" created be an offense to "Him". The presupposition is that it is bad, or abnormal, rather than just part of the range of "his" human creation?
Homophobia has an ancient and sad history, much of it being promulgated by the historic church and ancient near eastern cultures. Difference is too often the occasion for prejudice, one that has stretched way back. We are now more educated and knowledgable about the human personality and sexuality, we need to move away from continuing ancient prejudices. Rampant promiscuity is known in both heterosexual and homosexual spheres. And committed love is too.
Go to the damn wedding! 🙂 however, you may refrain from dancing with the groom or..bride?? errr, - we have to invent a new way of talking about this.
Christians can follow their gracious heart and surely God will smile. We mustn't think like lawyers with the Bible and Jesus..."Oh, here's a precedent 2000 year ago...ahemm...etc" 🙂 Anyway, leave ya with it.
Over here, Aussie Rules football is being challenged to be more accepting of its tough but gay players ( just a few apparently 🙂 ). It is awkward but overcomable.
