Responding to an article in the BANGOR DAILY NEWS, on Sunday, 21 October, entitled Why these sisters are voting ‘No’ on same-sex marriage I wrote:
“When people say they don’t see how it’s wrong, I say to them if you can
show me in the Bible where God says it’s right, then I will agree with
you,”... The problem with that idea lay in the fact that the Bible tells us what is WRONG, not what is right. Once we get past the First commandment, the idea that "Thou shalt NOT" dominates the discussion.
Nowhere in scripture is there a condemnation of Homosexual behavior [either really study the Old & New, or see book "Saint Paul's Joke" (2012, Kindle & Amazon etc), for specifics]. What is in the New text, is the idea that Gentiles who become Christians should NOT MARRY at all (1 Corinthians 7). But it also says they are, like the Hebrews, and followers of Peter, required to keep all the laws. So it follows that these sisters are either Kosher, or bigoted hypocrites -- they cannot base their bigotry on a scriptural view and ignore what scripture requires... Jesus only gave, and required obedience to, TWO commandments: The First of the Ten, and that we treat others as we would want to be treated. If we wish to be denied the right to marry who we love -- as blacks & whites who loved each other were once forbidden marry -- then, and only then, should we vote to deny loving couples the right to marry.
they say “We are Christians and we are commanded to love" -- as you would be loved ... Jesus' second commandment. They go on to say, "we don’t have to accept same-sex marriage as normal and natural.” Yet, if Jesus' time, even Caesar married another man, and neither Jesus, nor any of the Apostles took issue with it ... with the exception of Saul (St. Paul) who said do not marry at all ... remain single as he remained single.... unless your flesh was weak and only then should you went -- rather than burn. Which infers a commandment to allow same-sex marriage by the man responsible for nearly half the New Testament teachings and interpretation ... and the only person who was appointed by Peter & James to give those teachings to non-Jews.
NOTE THE LAST ITEM
“Saul (St. Paul) who said do not marry at all ... remain single as he remained single.... unless your flesh was weak and only then should you went -- rather than burn. Which infers a commandment to allow same-sex marriage by the man responsible for nearly half the New Testament teachings and interpretation”
SAME-SEX MARRIAGE is preferable to sex without marriage, and without marriage, sex is, in a sense, forbidden. Saint Paul commanded that his Gentile followers remain single – as he was – and that those who had been married, but were now widowed, should also remain single. They could only marry if their spirit was weak and could not tolerate celibacy.
Jesus said that any who were divorced, and had subsequently married, were guilty of adultery. So, if you are divorced and remarried, you have already spit in Jesus’ face … do you want to do it again? He did say you had to allow others to be treated as you wanted to be treated. If you want the right to marry, then you must allow it to others.
November 6th will have those who have forsaken any chance of Christian salvation self-identify – they will be the ones voting against same-sex marriage.
Those voting to allow it will be happy to be done with those sinners – after Judgment Day. Those who are opposed to same-sex marriage are also those who support anything that imposes
THE MOST HARM TO THE MOST PEOPLE

Well, actually it was posted to FaceBook, but it does describe the Republican approach to government.
In November, we get a chance to make this real. Last could, Romney 52%, Obama 48% … which is the reverse of what I predicted in a newspaper article back in August.
Just think how nice it would be, the New York Supreme Court has said opposition to Gay-Marriage is discrimination and serves no public interest. So, if all goes well, the GOP will win and discrimination will rule.
Roe v Wade set aside abortion – saving the lives and reproductive ability of 300,000 woman annually. (based on pre-Roe statistics)
Back then, there were half as many women of reproductive age, and 1.5 million illegal abortions a year. The GOP wants to return to that. They also want to outlaw all abortions – even those designed to save the life of the mother.
Post Roe, out-of-wedlock birth increased … meaning those who would have rushed to get an abortion, given time, and no pressure, decided not to abort. In theory that should have pro-lifer’s cheering … instead they want to return to the old days … killing both mother and child.
But we know why, they don’t want to pay for education, healthcare, or anything else their “pro-life” stance would logically require. It is much easier to yell pro-life and murder both mother and child…. OH … they are anti Condom… except when it symbolizes the reality of their position.
Ah YES! … can we get a chance to have Romney-Ryan in the Whitehouse … double the National Debt, send jobs to China, borrow money from China, deplete our oil, buy oil from Arab terrorists, so they can have the funds to attack us… can we … please…

“Taliban’s shooting of Malala Yousafzai, a 14-year-old education activist who was critically injured, but militant commanders in northwestern Pakistan reiterated their intention to kill the schoolgirl or her father.”
Read a related article with a CARE empowerment ad on TV. The Taliban is waging war against CARE!
- Who does the Taliban represent?
- Who allowed them to come to power?
- Who allows them to stay in power?
- Do they represent Islam? The Hindu?
Taliban supposedly mean meaning "students" in Pashto… what do murderous idiot students study? The murder of children? The slaughter of culture?
It is interesting it enforces strict interpretation of Sharia law, while leading Muslims have been highly critical of the Taliban interpretation of Islamic law … but who cares? Do you? Do people of Afghanistan and Pakistan support the Taliban? Do they … do they support it they way the Germans supported Nazis, or the way the Church supported the Inquisition? It is important to know … if they do, then the Taliban will be with us as long as the Western Christian Church, or as pernicious as the neo-Nazi movement.
First take over the Indian Nukes, then attack the West … as the Oil nations of the Middle East recognize them, and support them … with the full knowledge that, by the time the Taliban achieves its ends, the gas guzzling, anti-wind and solar Western leaders – most notably America’s Republican Right – will have run their nation(s) dry, and be easy pickings for anyone with the fuel for its warplanes.

Vatican Archivist sent a nice Thank You – dated 4 September 2012 for the two copies that they had requested – which were send in July.
This is probably the only chance for those who believe in Christian Resurrection to make sure they meet the basic requirements. It seems Fortunate, for many of us, that most Christians are really anti-Christs … they just will not learn that before they stand before the Judgment Bar. Though they should have realized it from reading the Gospels. Comical aspect, those who never read the Gospels actually have an advantage in gaining salvation.
I love it
