    Houston acted sensibly on the gay issue. He simply has left i up to individual conscience, where the issue belongs, not polluting the airways with antii-gay hate. There’s no need for Christians to agree on everything.

    Ebola is God’s judgment on Christians for hating gays. Or maybe for rejecting god’s science of evolution. Or maybe for obnoxious politicizing of religion. Or maybe just for being mean-mouthed all the time.

    What utter nonsense these weird preachers preach. Of course it does have the good effect of convincing young people not to go back to the backward brands of religion.

    i can assure you that my happiness boost has come from no longer “taking care” of others, most of the time catering to their egos. There are studies showing that stopping being “helpers” is a good thing for many women, and at least some men.

    Even calling gay or unmarried or remarried relationships “irregular,” putting them outside decency, is a scandal to the whole notion of “sacrament” by degrading every relationship but those presided over by a minister of the church.

    John Allen is showing the same conservative colors in Boston as he showed when he was with NCR. And yes, Catholics no longer need or depend on the Vatican or its clergy, very hypocritical clergy, around the world to tell them how to study, how to learn, how to think, how to believe. The search for knowledge is no longer locked up with clerics. The masses can read and write. They believe according to their own insights.

  • Hagee is a huge disappointment. Usually crises and unfortunate things are God’s wrath for “homosexuals.” Has Hagee become unpredictable?

    Hey, while we’re at it, who needs John 3:16 anyway? We might as well tell the next New York Times interviewer that it’s just as optional as all the other Bible verses. No need for Christians to agree on **anything** from their own Bibles.

    Ephesians 5:18 says don’t get drunk and 1 Corinthians 6:10 says that all
    drunkards go to hell so why people only want to talk about gay marriage
    or abortion/still talk about drinking games just shows how much the Bible
    needs to be preached. The wine Jesus made was for symbolic reasons
    and was diluted plus the Bible says don’t get drunk on strong wine and
    also don’t get drunk with wine for it’s debauchery! 1 Corinthians 6:9-12
    lists swindlers,thieves,drunkards,idolaters,the sexually immoral and also
    coveters/the greedy,slanderers/gossips/liars as people who will not inherit
    the kingdom heaven unless they Repent! All sin is bad. We all must Repent!
    Peole today seem to forget Jesus said you are one of Mine only if you follow
    Me/many will say to Me Lord,Lord and not enter heaven! We must Repent!
    Being mean/sharp tongues,gambling,jealousy,taking the Lords name in vain,
    pride,smoking dope/cigars,premarital sex also are wrong! We must Repent!

  • Doc Anthony

    I agree that “irregular” is the wrong word to use.

    Christians, please stop saying “irregular.”

    Instead, start saying “a flat-out SIN from HADES, baby!!!”

    Ahhh, the Reformation is finally nearing completion!

    “who needs John 3:16 anyway? ”

    Well Doc, you certainly don’t. All that compassion and love of thy neighbor that Jesus preached about is all just an inconvenience to you. If you are already actively missing the point, it makes no difference what part of the Bible you choose to follow. its only going to serve your personal needs.

    That dogma, that disease and illness is a sign of God’s punishment, causes great evil and suffering in the world. Hagee and his ilk like Pat Robertson should be called evil-angelists.
