    I went to a local Chick-Fil-A the other day for some food for the family...3 of us...close to $35.

    Last time I went to Whataburger, same thing. $35-ish for three of us.

    I used to be able to get a #1 meal at CFA for just over $6. Now, same meal costs me over $10.

    I don't believe I raised my children to be anything other than kind, and they all happened to turn out to like people of the opposite sex. I think people who are gay are born that way. The rest of that is starter set 'conservative' dogma. So, no eyeroll from me. I just disagree with you on most of that. Which means I can't be a Christian.  I mean, you told me I wasn't one, so who I am to disagree with St. Lobo of Longview? 

    This is what I mean when I say, liberals can't tell the difference between disliking the sin, not the person.

    It's great that your kids like people of the opposite sex. We should all love everyone. I've never said otherwise. You generally respond, however, that by speaking out against the sin, that we, I, hate the person. That's far from accurate. Take the story of the Samaritan woman at the well (someone else shared it the other day). In that time, that woman was considered an inferior based on her sex, where she was from, and her past (sinful life). Jesus still sought her out. What he did not do, however, was tell her in the end to go keep living in sin. As Christians, we ARE commanded to share the gospel, the truth. Romans 10:14 says, 'How are they to believe in him whom they have not heard?'.

    Whether a person wants to accept the message or not is up to them, but we as Christians are commanded to share it. So when someone says, 'Keep your religion to yourself', 'you have a right to believe what you want, but don't put it on me', etc, no, that's not the way it works. 

    We had a series with the youth group last summer titled, 'How to love the LGBTQ Community'. Jesus himself said he did not come for the righteous, but for the sinner. We ARE to love our neighbor, but we ARE also supposed to share the truth with them as well. 

     

    As for as the Christian thing, I was also pretty clear when I said, you can't be a Christian if you support living in sin. That's not debatable, it's biblical. I did also say that I made that claim about you specifically, because all of your arguments are that you support living in sin. If I've misinterpreted any of that, then by all means, accept my apology. But again, the bible is very clear on what is required to have a relationship with Christ. So with that, I would simply encourage you to better understand the bibles teachings on it, as you were 100% right last night that it is not my place to judge you personally. That responsibility is God's, and God's alone. So for that, I apologize. 

  3. My kids have been exposed to people who drink alcohol. That doesn't mean I should take them to a bar. 

    My kids have been exposed to girls wearing swimsuits at water parks that barely cover anything up. That doesn't mean I should take them to a strip club. 

    My kids have been exposed to people who smoke. That doesn't mean I'm going to buy them a pack of cigarettes. 

     

    Parents have a right to homeschool their kids. That doesn't mean you agree.

    As Chris Rock once said, "You can drive a car with your feet if you want to, that doesn't make it a good idea.". 

     

    Years ago, people talked about the ramifications of kids playing violent video games, listening to music full of vulgar language and violence, one parent households, eating processed foods along with an abundance of meals served in a bag, etc. Today, those same people don't want to act like any of those things have had anything to do with lack of obedience in kids, kid violence (this one is all the guns fault), obesity, etc. The fact is, kids ARE impressionable. 

    If you raise a child from birth believing that one race is superior to the rest, guess what that child is going to believe when they grow up...that they are superior to everyone else, while serving as the head of their local KKK group. 

    If you raise a child to believe they can be whatever sex/gender (SAME thing!) they want, guess what they're going to believe when they grow up...that they can get pregnant even though they were born with a penis. Guess what's that's going to lead to when they realize some sicko lied to them all their life...depression. Guess what that depression is going to eventually lead to...suicide. 

     

     

    Now, que the eye roll reaction in 3, 2, 1......

    You imply that no one should take children to a Pride parade. I said that it is certainly up to the parents to make their own decision. There were no PRIDE parades in my town, ever, and I didn't drive and seek one out, but I can tell you that my children grew up around members of the LBGTQ community in our town and in their school and when they went out into the world. None are a member of that community, but all are allies of that community. So, your question has been answered as relevantly as I could. Now, tell me how I am not a Christian again. 

     

     

    No, it has not. 

     

    As usual, you've blabbed on about everything EXCEPT the answer to the question asked. 

     

    As for your last comment, all I can say is, you would only feel the need to say that if you knew what you are supporting is wrong.

    Are you for taking away the right of parents to make that decision? I am not for public obscenity in any form, but wearing rainbow clothes and being in drag isn't illegal, whatever you believe about it.  Being gay in public isn't a crime. 

    That's not what I asked. 

     

    My question was, do you think it's okay for children to be exposed to all of this.

    You have had the Village People on YOUR Main Street? Wow, what a moment that must have been. Did you do the YMCA???? 😏

    And, having a parade is still a celebration for those in that community after having to hide, in most cases, all of their lives. Nobody needs to see any dingly danglys, for sure, but it's only 'in your face' if you are there on the front row in San Francisco or NYC. 

    Let me ask you this...

     

    When these events are done 'on Main Street', they are open to the public. That means, there are many people who take their kids to these events. So my question for you is this, do you believe that is okay? Is it okay for children to be exposed to all of this?

    So, you on a message board can make that judgment? More revealing about you than anyone else, including me. Your self righteousness and then doubling down on that would be nauseating and off putting if, again, it wasn't some guy on a message board trying to point to his holiness while showing his own hypocrisy by judging others. Remove that colossal board out of your own eye first. 

    When you make it clear to everyone on said message board, yes, I can draw that conclusion. 
     

    I can 100% admit that I can be condescending at times, out of pure annoyance and frustration. Drawing the conclusion that you aren’t a Christian, is not that. 

    There is a difference between being a sinner, and living in sin. I don’t need to pass judgement on you when you openly admit to everyone on this board that you support living in sin. 
     

    All I did was point out the obvious. It was you, not I, that passed judgement. You passed judgment on every Christian, as liberals generally do, when you called us bigots and claim we pass hate simply for being against sin being praised. 
     

    Calling out sin is not the same thing as passing judgement. We are all sinners.

    I knew several people that died during the plandemic that died from other medical conditions yet were erroneously included as "covid deaths ....

     

    As did I. But some people won’t believe that, because it’s not what the news told them.

    This may shock you, but I see little difference in your words that would make you a better Christian than anyone else, including me. Now say something humble while coming across as arrogant instead. Your 'witness' is not convincing but is condescending. 

    I’m confused what words you saw that said I was better than anyone, including you. All I said is that you aren’t a Christian. This may come as a shock, but when a person chooses to remain in sin, and support a life of sin, that’s a generally a clear indication they aren’t a Christian. 
     

    The Bible says in Matthew, ‘Not everyone who says to me, Lord, Lord will enter the kingdom of heaven, but those that do the will of my father…I will declare to them, away from me you evil doer, I never knew you.’

    Your insight is very wrong about me. Your opinion is faulty as is your assertion that teaching our children to accept others is wrong and sad. 

    Which part is wrong? That you aren’t a Christian? No, that’s pretty clear. 
     

    Teaching our children that they live in a sinful world, that Jesus died for those sins, and that the only way to have eternal life is by turning from that sin, and living for God is exactly what we are called to do, and how we are instructed to raise our children.

     

    The problem with liberals, is you think that just because we teach against the sin, that we are hating the sinner. You are wrong. If that were true, it would make Jesus’ resurrection pointless.

    REALITY DOSE: 1.1 MILLION people died of Covid in the United States. Many more died than should have because of Trump's kowtowing to nuts, and the count is underestimated because of the lack of care taken by propaganda embracers. 
     

    Dr. Fauci and his team dealt with something horribly historic and saved lives, while figuring out the best approach to solving something with no precedent. FACTS to the sane. 

    Reality: That number is 100% fabricated. 

     

    1.1M people may have died during COVID, but that does not mean they died of COVID. There are countless people that can testify to the fact that they knew someone that died during COVID, didn't have COVID, and yet that was the reason the hospital recorded anyway. Some people are just too naive to believe that, and so gullible they'll believe anything liberal TV tells them.

    A two fer: the deeply cynical tactic of calling others bigots for your own bigotry AND the inference that teaching love and acceptance of others is about sex, which is a twisted and narrow gauge of the intended meaning. 

    A two fer right back at you....

     

    It was you that first called someone a bigot, in this post, so great job playing the game, 'what goes around comes around'. 

    Secondly, I didn't say anything of the sort, that love and acceptance is about sex. No, THAT would be the message of the liberals...which, btw, I agree with you; it IS twisted. 

    What I did, was use an everyday example to show that us not wanting all the alphabet nonsense forced onto us and our kids is for the very same reason we don't want something that IS natural shoved onto them either. Because it's inappropriate and goes against the very thing God stands for. 

     

    Just because you aren't a Christian doesn't mean those of us that are, are meant to pander to your irrational way of thinking.

    You are supposed to treat your neighbor well, but I love how some cherry pick the Bible. When Jesus spoke to the woman at the well, he showed mercy and love. He knew she was living in sin. She had several husbands in her life. She was shown mercy and love by the Son of God. When she left, did He say “you do you girl”? No. He told her to sin no more. Now we know that’s impossible but you can try. I’m not picking on homosexuals. They’re never mentioned alone. They’re followed by adulterers and fornicators. We don’t have a Cheaters Pride Parade or a Cheaters Pride Month. There’s still shame associated with it. Only reason I brought Jesus up was because she did. 

    Exactly. 

     

    Let me add to this with this...

    Sex is a good thing (in the confines of marriage). It is a natural thing, between a MAN and a WOMAN. There is an entire book of the bible based on the joys and pleasures of sex, Song of Solomon. HOWEVER, that does not mean I want my kids watching a movie full of sex. Does that make me a 'bigot' against sex? Of course not. It makes me a good and responsible parent. 

     

    Me not wanting sin shoved down my throat, or my kids throats, does not make me a bigot. It makes me a man of God, and a good and responsible parent. 

     

    Someone who cannot accept my beliefs because they think the bible is a farce, and constantly throws out insults because of my beliefs, in fact makes THEM a bigot.

    And you know Barry would lose his mind if there were "Straight Pride" parades and a "Straight Pride" month.

    Not to mention, I don't think he believes that Democrats or the left can be bigots against anyone else.

    That's why I asked the question in the thread the other day, "If two protected classes have a conflict, who wins?" And he never gave an answer.

    Of course not. They don't believe they can be racists either. The irony of it all, is they are the biggest bigots and racists of anyone.
