Politicians and pundits debate whether Britain is a Christian state. A Polish art group is taken to court for “blasphemously” painting Pope St. JP2 breastfeeding a priest. And Brunei implements its first phase of harsh new Shariah penalties. All this and more in April’s global recap.

    People today seem to only focus on gay marriage. What about sins
    like getting drunk,gambling,gossip,being mean/sharp tongues and
    sleeping around? Many people today don’t want to face their own
    sin and that’s why so many people like to only focus on other people
    so their sin doesn’t seem so bad. Ephesians 5:18 says don’t get drunk
    and 1 Corinthians 6:10 says that drunkards go to hell so why are so
    many “Christians” still drinking/getting drunk? It’s because it never
    gets confronted along with sins like gossip,gambling/coveting,jealousy,
    being mean/sharp tongues,sleeping around. The wine Jesus made was
    from the fruit of the vine/new wine/diluted and the Bible says don’t get
    drunk on strong wine so people who get drunk with wine are also wrong!

    Fundamentalists can’t make headway getting those other things banned under the color of law. Drunks, gamblers, blabbermouths, bimbos and jerks are too great in number and their lobbies are far more powerful. 🙂
