22 comments to Pastor Phil… A twist on gay rights bill
Had me fooled for a minute, thought he was a nutter Brilliant! love his arguement.
This “Reverend” is an ass. It isn’t a sin to be Black, Asian, Hispanic, etc. and discrimination based on skin color or ethnicity is wrong, but don’t confuse ethnicity with sexual preference. Homosexual behavior is exactly that; behavior, and people have a choice whether or not to engage in that behavior.
hahaha I can’t believe people still think like this. I bet you believe gay people should be put into therapy to “cure” them, right? Get your head out of your ass, dude.
No, therapy won’t do it. If someone wants to be a homosexual, that’s up to them. Just don’t try to force me or others to reckon homosexual behavior normal through legislation. Homosexuality is sin, regardless of your opinion.
Judging others is a sin, regardless of your opinion. Better start wearing an asbestos suit everywhere you go.
You are incorrect and haven’t thought through your argument. Everybody makes judgement calls in life. You judge me and my opinion when you declare that my opinion is wrong. Without the ability to judge people and actions it is impossible to determine what actions are right and which actions are wrong.
A well-spoken, coherent argument without any ignorance or flames. Nicely done! It’s rare to see someone be able to articulate themselves so well and have clean answers for the well-worn stereotypes being thrown at you.
Judging others is different than making a judgment call. Sorry, it’s not semantics, it’s a factual statement. Do a search on the phrases, and I think you’ll see where you made your mistake.
I didn’t declare that your opinion was wrong, I said that judging others is a sin (the implication is that this is based on biblical teachings). You interpreted that as me saying you were wrong. I never said that. You made a statement “Homosexuality is sin”. Obviously this is based on the bible. Judging others is a sin, as is also stated in the bible. I just used your same logic to show the fallacy in your argument.
Love all the haters giving this a negative vote. It’s only a matter of time before gays will be able to marry. Get used to it.
Being against gay marriage doesn’t mean you’re a hater. And yes, it is only a matter of time until gays will be able to marry, and then they will sue Christian churches for not marrying them, and that will force Christianity to go underground. See how one persons “rights” trample on anothers, and enjoy your hypocrisy.
Take off the tin foil hat, no one can sue a church to marry them. Giving someone else rights that you already have is not special rights, it’s called equality.
But apparently they can sue a farm? This is the fight that is coming.
Perfect! He didn’t just hit the nail on the head, he hit it with a nuclear missile!
If you, Mr. Parker, believe homosexuality is a sin and a choice, then that is your religious belief, however contrary to fact it may be. However, we have separation of church and state, and you cannot impose your religious idea of “sin” on the rest of us legally.
You are correct and I don’t desire to impose my opinion on anyone. I only desire that people would be honest with one another. Certain behaviors are sinful. Homosexuals and the people that support their behavior only confuse the debate when they use faulty logic like that displayed in the video above to make their case. Currently, it is in vogue to try and make the case that Christianity supports homosexuality. Even a cursory reading of the Bible would refute that contention. If gays want to go to church, that’s fine, just don’t try to claim that their sex is blessed by God or is a Christian virtue.
You are correct. Certain behaviors ARE sinful. Being a homosexual is not one of them.
According to the Bible and Christianity, it is. Don’t try to confuse the issue with fuzzy-brained ignorance of the Bible.
Christianity has only been around for the past 2000 years.
Before that, it was paganism, jewish, and belief in Norse or Roman gods. Homosexuality has been prevalent LONG before Christianity. It was not a sin prior to that until organized religion made it so.
According to the bible, men are not allowed to shave and men are to keep slaves. Is this still in the norm? The bible is nothing more than a history book. Just because a large chunk of people refuse to think for themselves and would rather have a book do it for them, does not mean it is correct.
I didn’t really like this. It would have been more effective if the point was driven in harder. You can even tell by the audiences’ reaction that it wasn’t really poignant.
It’s akin to a really good buildup to a joke and then the punchline was delivered weakly and people don’t know if they should laugh. While this isn’t a joke, the point was muted.
The trouble with “sin” is that it’s defined by your religion. If your religion is Bible-based, then maybe homosexuality is a sin. Most religions are not Bible-based – they each have their own definition of “sin” which very likely does not include homosexuality.
