Apologies for posting a serious thread on a Sunday.
just predjudice against gays, whereas IF
whereas if you consider the other nonsense
"The booklet, which claims that "scientifically speaking, safe sex is a joke", explains that "the homosexual act is disordered, much like contraceptive sex between heterosexuals. Both acts are directed against God's natural purpose for sex – babies and bonding."
Then we can see that this claptrap is also highly dangerous in other ways, its bollocks like this that inhibited attempts to combat aids in africa.
The whole thing should be banned as being bollocks and harmful to the public good. Disease is a bad thing and they are here giving advice which practically would have the effect of reducing the effect of safe sex education. The education authorities should just be banning teaching children untruths. That is surely the duty of the Education authorities?
but people would say that it defies freedom of religious expression to ban such a document.
others then we must argue that freedoms only exist to the extent that they do not cause worse unfreedoms or harm to others in our society, this is the eternal quandry that democracy has found - how to tolerate intolerance, the liberal conundrum.
What I find dissappointing and a sign of the wests tenure of democracy to be very wasteful of the opportunity, is that they have not progressed this debate or spread the full understanding of these dichotomys, like the yanks wanting to be free to do whatever they want, like have an automatic gun, but not allow an individual to smoke some weed, there is not mechanism within democracy that helps us with these sorts of issues, they are always left up to political arguing.
It is quite frankly, awfully immature and childish and anti sense, but that is what they have allowed democracy to become - 'an ass'
people are not allowed to imbibe ethnogenic druks for spiritual purposes without freedom of prosecution, why are some other religeons allowed to promote lies that lead to more intolerance, hate and disease?
are not able enough to make those choices, and that is where the state comes in and is meant to rescue children from parental ignorance.
In my hometowm I witness a religeous group called 'the brethren'
Now they send some of their boys to school, but not the girls. To me this should be flat out illegal discrimination. But they seem to be able to get away with it.
he's letting children down.
Homophobia, and persecution of homosexuals, is far more aggressive in other religions.
As a practicing Christian, I find this pretty offensive.
the 'christian' book 'pure manhood' in schools and get them to not teach a book that has lies which will help create predjudice, hate and spread disease
compared to the writings of other religions.
Christianity has a long history of homosexual tolerance (if not always acceptance). The same can not be said for other religions.
so I am baffled as to why christians who follow Jesus's teachings and example should tolerate the haters and persecutors tarnishing His message, with almost the opposite
against what was said to be done in the name of the holy. Christians like you should take strength and courage from that and feel unafeared......you know what is right so do it.....or just point at another group and say they are doing worse.
If lots and lots of christians argued against predjudice by other 'so called' christians, then I wouldnt have such a beef.
I have known two Christians that were very good in this respect.
Yes you can try to point out that other religeons are more intolerant, or on the other hand I could point out that my belief has zero tolerance of intolerance :D
we know more about it, and we are aware of the bizarre contrast between 'jesus's teachings' and what some christianity preaches.
I mean, to me they almost seem diametrically opposed
love and acceptance vs revulsion and predjudice
Of course it is a common trick when ones own side does something awful to quickly point and say "ooh look they're doing it worse" but you know? that sort of behaviour also makes Jesus sad, he is not very impressed by you saying this, although he does agree and want all people to not persecute and hate when they dont have to, when it is merely further propogated by such nonsense as falseness pretending to be 'Holy' or 'spiritual' when in fact it merely represents 'the mobs like of persecution'
But I am going to pick myself up, dust myself down, and start trying to be better, again. I am not going to allow one little mistake stop me.
the question is which is best vicar or priest?
