Since my posting on this blog and Facebook last week of “Witnessing to Homosexuals” (which included a few words concerning that horrible decision by that biased judged who nulled Proposition 8), it seems that everybody has an opinion. And so diverse! Read a cache of the cacophony I caused:
Ruben, commenting on “The Shepherd of Brokeback Mountain” and “The Not-so-Great Prop 8 Debate,” wrote on Facebook: What you fail to point out is homosexuals have a parade to celebrate sin. What city ever hosted a steal pride parade? What city every had a lie pride week? This is a different sinner that walks in the street promoting his sin, demanding the laws change to support his sin. When was the last time murderers demanded us to welcome them as they walked with signs upholding murder.
Your talking to someone at Starbucks vs. preaching against a sodomite parade is like apples and oranges, you do understand the difference between witnessing and preaching, no? Do you think all sin is the same sin? I think you are more concerned with what homosexuals think about you; you need to be more concerned what a Holy God thinks about that sin that parades in public.
BathTub, our resident atheist from New Zealand, complained: Ah I love the caring insult. The refuge of bigoted idiots from the northern hemisphere… hey I say it in love!
Garrett, another atheist, scolded me: Oh knock it off. You will never convince BECAUSE YOU HAVE NO ARGUMENTS. We are not the ones tucking our tail between our legs and insisting upon our opinion without backing it up.
To say the judge is committing some wrong against democracy by declaring the law unconstitutional is demonstrating some terrible ignorance about the workings of our government.
Keep it up, Steve: you’re doing a far better job displaying the poisonous nature of your faith than I ever can.
And BathTub again: Run from your spectacular failure at any sort of rational point.
But not everyone was full of sound and fury. Here are some encouraging comments:
Loretta in San Francisco: hi Steve! Just read thru the comments on the witnessing to “homosexuals” post– very disturbing. bunch of comments— they are on the attack. Just want to send you my Christian sister love and support. —Loretta. SF Bay
Kristy wrote: Awesome to hear these things. It is such a heated thing right now. I hear you in that homosexuality is not the only sin, because none of us are good enough to go to heaven. I hope the seeds are planted and all of that. When we go out, we say the same thing, no one may get saved on the spot but seeds got planted. God blessed you with that act of courage.
