The thing about Christians getting all wrapped around the axle with Mayor Pete being gay is their use of scriptiure to try and define homosexuality as a sin. Now, they can find things there that would support that but in the past, Christians have used the Bible to define other activities as sins or condoned. After it became inconvenient, they simply determined that those scriptures were misinterpreted or no longer valid. 

  • Adultery seems to be out the window
  • Support for slavery
  • Opposing equal rights for women
  • integration was supposed to be a sin for a while

 

I could never figure out which set of rules were being followed "today" and which things allowed today would send me to hell tomorrow.

If some posters are forgetting or ignoring the style of the post I should remind them that the posts are usually sprinkled with diversion, confusion and never ending questions about the same thing over and over again in order to tire the posters and bring the topic off the line of questioning.

There is no misunderstanding of the thread, of what has been posted if some posters have made the decision not to understand, I guess that they are the ones that exhibit that problem not anyone else. and should be left alone to  provide them time to comprehend.

As I pointed out at least once before in this thread, I really recommend that you get out to a Starbucks or some other place with people and talk to them. The one's who carry Bibles on the dashboard are having seizure over a religious homosexual.  It is actually great fun to watch but I would not expect them to post here just so you can see it.  Get out more, enjoy life.  Find out what Trump and friends are really doing the the country.  you'll like it. 


It's hard for a person to get out of the house when posting replies to most posts that other posters make.


Any thoughts on the topic?


Do you?


Yes and I have offered them. Just saw your rabbit hole games....Now, about your client.......???  LMAO!  Another rabbithole.....

"Here's what I thing (sic), you go look t (sic) find the proof" is a silly game occasionally here. But, "go to Starbucks" is an interesting new variation on the theme.   The topic has nothing to do with those who are driven nuts, one needs to understand what the term means...others just don't bother to understand:

 

driven nuts - 

drive someone nuts - to make someone very annoyed; All these phone calls are driving me nuts."

Drive Someone Nuts

 

The old adage is shown to be true again, that "when you got nothing, pretend something else is an issue."

 

Pete Buttigieg, a gay Christian, is driving the religious right nuts

 

The only Democrat talking at length about his faith in the 2020 primary also happens to be the only gay candidate in the race. And he's one of the few from a red state.

 

South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg is an Episcopalian who can freely quote Bible verses. He's also a presidential candidate who embraces his husband on stage at campaign rallies.
 
Combining homosexuality and Christianity might be the most natural thing in the world for Buttigieg and millions of gay Americans, but it is an iconoclastic development in American politics, where generalizations about religious freedom have in recent years been used specifically to fight advances in LGBTQ rights.
 
For some on the religious right, like Franklin Graham, Buttigieg's identity, while it's shared by many gay Americans of faith, does not compute.
 
 
Now, is there anything you disagree with in the short video at the link? Do YOU think God has a political party? In your opinion, who is more Christian? Buttigiuge or trump?
That sounds like an example of the old adage you mentioned. Only if you didn't bother to watch the video in the topic link,,,,
 
Now back to the issue - Pete Buttigieg, a gay Christian, is driving the religious right (or evangelists or Evangelits) nuts. Now, using the definition you so kindly offered - who is being driven nuts ("who" meaning persons not vague groupings)?  I'm still surprised you are so confused.  Maybe you should consult with the author of the article if you prefer to continue to ignore the actual topic and prefer to whine about semantics.

Oh well. I guess your interaction with the world is different than the author of the thread........and mine too. I see them going nuts over Mayor Pete all the time.  I wonder what it means if you are the only poster not seeing this?

I will venture to say that first, the name Christian is a misnomer for many of them and then if I had to name any I would definitely come up with the Evangelists. they are the so called Christian right. and as any sect they try to convince others that what they preach is the truth, when we have all seen that they have not only flexible morals but I don't think that the name Christian really belongs to them.

Yes, you think - but who are you thinking it about specifically. The first topic only mentioned Graham but then only mentioned a biblical interpretation issue - hardly "driving nuts".


Still maintaining that the Right Wing Christians are all cozy with a gay presidential candidate?  As you wish. Glad to hear all those homophobic tweets and statements were not REALLY homophobic.

 

It does seem that Right Wing Conservatives and especially the more rabid Christian element are having a tough time responding to  Buttigieg.  He is solid in his faith and lives it.  The Christians, especially, are having a real problem showing how Buttigieg is an abomination against man is backed up by the Bible. Especially when they are willing to let Trump's history slide. There are a couple of verses in the Bible which mention homosexuality but Trump broke the big commandment(s) so it really makes the Religious Right look hypocritical. 


I have seen no reference to "cozy" can you point out where you got that from? And Trump?????? Now, he IS driving a lot of people nuts. But I still have not seen an example of some Evangelist or evangelit having been driven nuts.

Definition of the Christian Right.  who are they? and what are they?

I will venture to say that first, the name Christian is a misnomer for many of them and then if I had to name any I would definitely come up with the Evangelists. they are the so called Christian right. and as any sect they try to convince others that what they preach is the truth, when we have all seen that they have not only flexible morals but I don't think that the name Christian really belongs to them.
