Pro-gay argument: “Whatever reasons you have for objecting to homosexuality, you won’t find any of them in the Bible. It’s been badly mistranslated; the fact is, it doesn’t condemn gays and lesbians the way you think it does.”
Response: “I never said it condemns gays and lesbians, any more than it condemns anyone else. The Bible says we’ve all sinned, and we’re all in need of redemption.”
Pro-gay argument: “Fine, but I mean it also doesn’t condemn loving sexual relationships between men or between women. Those men who wrote the Bible didn’t even know what homosexuality was. It’s only in the last hundred years that we’ve come to understand what sexual orientation is. Biblical writers didn’t know anything about people who felt they were gay from the time they were young - and who are in lasting, responsible lesbian and gay relationships.”
Response: “But there’s no contingency in the Bible for homosexuality. It doesn’t say, ‘Thou shalt not lie with man as with woman, unless that’s your orientation.’ The Biblical authors probably weren’t concerned about what caused certain behaviours - they were concerned with behaviours themselves. By the way, it’s quite an insult to God and His Word to ignore what the Bible says about homosexuality just because its authors never of ‘sexual orientation.’ They may never have heard about alcoholism, either, but don’t you think they knew what they were talking about when they prohibited drunkenness? Orientation, in itself, doesn’t justify behaviour.”
Pro-gay argument: “But the Bible has always been used to back prejudice; haven’t you noticed that? The KKK does it, the Nazis did it, and now the Religious Right’s doing it to gays and lesbians!”
Response: “So many people use the term ‘Religious Right’ nowadays that I’m not even sure what it is. But if you mean conservative Christians, then you’re wrong. Sure, bigots have twisted the Bible in the past, but the fact that some Christians were wrong in the past doesn’t automatically mean they’re wrong in the present. It only means we should be careful before we take a stand on something, and believe me, I am.”
Pro-gay argument: “Don’t you think Christians of colonial times said the same thing while they bought and sold their slaves?”
Response: “That’s a bad comparison. Gays have never been bought and sold in America; you’ve never been denied the right to vote; there are no gay and straight classrooms or drinking fountains; and you’ve always had the right to hold property and participate in the political process. In fact, you’ve always had the same rights all Americans have had. The same sure can’t be said about African-Americans.”
Pro-gay argument: “But bigotry is bigotry, no matter who it’s directed against.”
Response: “You’re right about that. But is taking a biblical stand a form of bigotry? I’m saying homosexuality is wrong. I’m not saying homosexuals are less than human and should be treated as such. It’s unfair and inaccurate when you confuse a moral position with bigotry.”
Pro-gay argument: “But you’re too sure of yourself. You’re not a language expert, so how can you be so sure the Bible really does condemn homosexuality? It’s written in ancient languages.”
Response: “But it’s been translated by experts who know a lot more about language than either one of us. Check the credentials of these guys before you write their translations off. They knew what they were doing.”
Pro-gay argument: “Maybe so, but you fundamentalists sure do pick and choose what Scriptures you want to believe in. You yank out the passages on gays and say how terrible we all are, but you don’t seem half as concerned about other Bible verses.”
Response: “That’s true, to a point. Sometimes Christians do get more excited about homosexuality than other sins. But they also preach against sins they’re guilty of. Face it, if I wanted to pick and choose which Bible verses to take seriously, I’d only choose the ones that applied to your sins and never mention the ones that apply to mine. But I don’t do that; I admit I’ve got struggles too. Most other fundamentalists do the same.”
Pro-gay argument: “But when you quote verses on homosexuality, you clobber us with them!”
Response: “I’ve heard you quote Scriptures; you don’t seem to think you’re hitting someone with them just because you’re quoting them. When I quote Scriptures on homosexuality, I’m only doing so to back my belief that homosexuality is a sin. That’s not clobbering; it’s talking. So can we talk?”
Happy Intersex Awareness Day!!!
I had a cashier at Walmart tell my wife and I to have a “good gay guys” by accident. Like dang. If you wanted to know if we were real gays you can just ask 🤣👏🏻
HAPPY ASEXUAL AWARENESS WEEK!!!!!
To those who thought themselves broken or weird, we accept and love you wherever you fall on the asexual spectrum!!!
the little nose scrunch when she laughs? y e s
For Asexual Awareness week, I’d like to remind everyone that:
Approaches gay couple: so which one is Miranda and which one is Andy?
I think an experience that is common to most (closeted) lgbtq+ folks is not being able to share the little and huge joys/achievements of our lives. Ever so often, there’s no one to go to.
Found a label that fits you? Have a new partner? Learn that your crush/squish is lgbtq+ too? Won an lgbtq+ related competition? Started an LGBTQ+ support group/ account? Had your first kiss? Found pronouns that fit you? Designed a new flag? I know, you feel proud of yourself. Rightly so. 🏳️🌈
It sucks to do things you’re proud of yourself for and not be able to share that with people who’d be so proud of you for your non LGBTQ+ achievements.
This is when having people of the community as friends helps and this is when online friends help. Feel free to share your achievements with me, gush about your smallest joys and remember that you’re amazing. Your achievements and joys matter.
HAPPY ASEXUALITY WEEK!!!!!!
Join my new chat group 🎮 for those who love gaming on console, board, cards etc 🤙💥
Finished Fence Striking Distance within a day and well, I have to say while the comic was cute and enjoyable, the novel offered a lot more in terms of character development especially Harvard, Aiden, Seiji and Nicholas.
I enjoyed reading Seiji and Nicholas’s story more compared to the other two. Reading Seiji’s part is especially even funnier cause he’s so oblivious all the time in opposed to Nicholas 😂
Also Nicholas and Seiji reminds me of Hinata and Kageyama from Haikyuu 🥺
nice coffee date <3
