To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.

This. This is beautiful.

Hover over the name to "like" and show Macklemore x Ryan Lewis some love for producing one of the most moving cases for LGBTQ equality we've ever heard.

It should be no secret I believe inequalities of opportunity and 'rights' make a mockery and sham of representative government. Calling it democracy is an exercise in reprehensible misrepresentation. Nor am I a believer in theocracy where the state and church are involved in an incestuous relationship. But, despite being horrified by Tom Usher's activist hatemongering and the complete lie and oxymoron in using Scripture as a cudgel to attack his fellows in the name of Love, I must admit the industry with which he does it is impressive. Nor is his research without some appearance of merit.

Janet Mefferd Dismantles Alan Chambers on Homosexuality

A conservative Christian radio host didn't hold back her criticism when interviewing Exodus International President Alan Chambers on Wednesday over his views on homosexuality, repentance and salvation.
Throughout the half-hour broadcast on "The Janet Mefferd Show," host Mefferd and Chambers engaged in a debate that at times got testy.
http://www.janetmefferdpremium.com/2012/ 09/05/janet-mefferd-radio-show-20120905- hr-2/

I believe we are at a pivotal moment. The illogic of pro-homosexuality Christianity is really being exposed. It can't help but happen as we argue for the Gospel against those who seek its elimination by what they would term evolving it to suit "modern" times, the current culture.
Alan Chambers has been roundly supported and held up as a shining, guiding light by the mainstream media, the same media that has given more over to the pro-SB 1172 forces than to our side. What is clear to me though is that they are losing the debate about homosexuality and the Bible and the New Testament. I see that as why Alan Chambers became upset by Janet's open, honest, direct, clear questions.
If, or more so when, we win, they will be set back also concerning their attack on NARTH. They will be set back in general. The importance of that cannot be overstated.

Commenting failed : I sometimes have Login problems. Here is my response to the matter of Questions rather than Answers.

You answered a question with a question after I answered you directly and not with questions. I asked you the following: "How do you know Jesus won't heal such people? Have you asked him and he's told you he won't?" Answer my questions, or don't comment here again.

If he wasn't offended, he wouldn't have bothered with you in the first place. Nor would I care to get into a debate with a well informed person calling himself liberal who is as as 'down' on homosexuals as any KKK 'Christian' might be on treating negroes as non persons.  And what did Jesus do when pressed by students of the Law as to his beliefs and teaching?

He asked questions to stimulate thought about  wider context and implications.


Besides : you have to wonder about the sensitivity to allegorical truth of any person who thinks the purpose of the Bible is to emulate the Pharisees
Now if it was....ouch !  That would make it more a  warning of the consequences of opposition to the edicts and teachings of the state : mockery,imprisonment, torture and death.
Do you think the Kings of England, the Princes of the Church,the Vatican, or Emperor Constantine would have had any interest in promoting such ? 

If you think the answer is 'No' we really aren't on the same page. 'Christians' should follow the example of Christ in promoting free thought and compassion....fulfilling the promise of  brotherhood behind 'the law' and not its tyranny. I think such are called 'Liberals' and 'Progressives' down your way.
