The Best Response I’ve Ever Seen To “Christians” Quoting the Bible to Condemn Homosexuality

This clip about says it all….

I think this must be the basis for the Dr Laura Schlessinger post about Leviticus and Homosexuality that went viral all over the web.  When I quoted it, Dr Laura’s “people” did write me to tell me she never said it…but it remains one of the most popular posts on this blog with several “hits” almost every day even though it’s a fairly old post.

One of the few things I’ll never forgive England for is driving out all the Puritans and sending them here…

And I’m so tired of “Christians” saying love the sinner but hate the sin.  Then patting themselves on the back for their “tolerance”.

This position still reflects hate.

And judgement.

My response is:  “Who do they think they are to even think they are allowed to consider judging me or my life?”

Frankly, they should just mind their own business and worry about their own lives and their own “eternal salvation” and leave us alone.  Completely.  They should not even speak about people they will never allow themselves to understand.

I’ve always believed faith is a private, individual journey and that it’s a little bit tacky to carry on about it too much in public.

And very dangerous to try to impose your religious views on others to drive political and social agendas.

There is something called the Separation of Church and State in the Constitution…

The Founding Fathers realized you had to protect people from the Puritans and the Puritans from themselves.

And if “Christians” actually followed all the biblical laws cited in the Bible, they would all be in jail…

Instead, they all seem to be rather selective in what they choose to follow.

In other words, don’t speak to me about Homosexuality being condemned in the Bible as long as you are eating shrimp cocktails…

Let me be clear:  I respect your right to believe whatever you chose to believe.  Just keep it to yourself.  I’ll try to do the same.

You stay out of of my bedroom and I’ll stay out of your Church.

Why don’t we all agree to just mind our own business and try to get through life with as much grace as possible? Christians shouldn’t talk about Homosexuality and, frankly, I would love not to have to talk about Christians and what I think they should be doing.  Let’s just agree to live and let live and leave each other alone…

President Bartlett says it all…very well.
