I watched ir and saw othing in it about God'sPary nor Trump. So, there you are following your old adage, The usual rabbithole distraction.  You were asked was there anything he said that you disgree with.  He also said God doesn't have a political party, though some Christians claim God choose trump to lead America and the Mayor also referrenced trump, though like many, he chose not to mention his name.  So you tried to dodge the questions but as is often the case, those who can view and understand a video clip can clearly see for themselves the attempt at luring others to your rabbithole game again.  Thanks, not interested.

After it became inconvenient, they simply determined that those scriptures were misinterpreted or no longer valid.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.

 

I didn't see anything that you have posted that has been thrown out by any religion , the only ones that are now not following those BASIC moral tenants are the Evangelists but we all know that they are not a religion so, in a way it doesn't count

 

"In a way....."  LMAO!!!

Perhaps we should just refer to America's evangelicals as "flexible"?

 

From scorning immigrants to accepting the president’s profanity, evangelicals are proving just how flexible their values can be

Is calling the Evangelist  a sect a cheap shot? well they are not a religion so why that would be considered a cheap shot? and yes, they do have flexible morals.

Please do explain your post, perhaps you may explain what is it that you seem to think is a cheap shot.  We do welcome your post, and disagreements are the norm in this message board/

I believe that all religions believe that what they preach is truth. But I still haven't see an example of some Evangelist or Evangelit being "driven nuts" by Mayor Pete.


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.


Read the post you were responding to. I haven't seen any, if you have - who?

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.....


No rabbit hole, just a comment on you answering for another poster.

 

Giggle on.

"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,,,,
I watched ir and saw othing in it about God'sPary nor Trump. So, there you are following your old adage, "when you got nothing, pretend something else is an issue."
 
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.
