Poe's Law

We have found a new source of stupidity and ignorance. This one is local. The Daily Christian News Blog, based out of The Ozarks.

A recent blog post consisted of the following question:

HOMOSEXUALITY AND THE CHURCH: What should the response of the church be?

Some moronic imbecile that god blessed with the good fortune of a keyboard left this gem:
The church needs to respond the same way it does all other sins. What the church has done is put some sort of stigma on the sin of homosexuality. Just because one does not suffer from that particular sin they should not ridicule those who do. Divorce is another act that many are quick to burn others at the stake but forget they to struggle daily with their owns sinful nature. We must respond as Jesus does. With love and righteousness. We must not destroy but build up and like the women caught in adultery we MUST tell the go and sin NO more.

The Church's response cannot be one of complete acceptance. To embrace sin is just as wrong as practicing sin. Also they cannot keep silent on it. Silence is acceptance. The key is to call all sin, sin. We need to stop babying America in fear of smaller crowds and stick to preaching the uncompromising Word of God.

I just left this response. We will see if it gets a bite.

Chris,

I agree completely. The Church should never shy away from the teachings of The Bible, for fear of assaulting those who feel that our understanding of the world or morality could grow or improve over time.

We should follow The Bible completely. In The Bible we are instructed to stone to death those who participate in homosexual behavior (Lev. 20:13, Romans 1). We are also instructed to stone to death those who engage in adultery, bestiality, idolatry, breaking the sabbath, cursing God, or rebellion against our parents.

I encourage each and every one of us to follow this book completely. We cannot allow our societies changing understanding of morality to influence our desire to adhere to the scripture given to us by God.

The next time you hear of a man who becomes remarried, pick up the nearest stone and chuck it. If you are in a Chinese restaurant and see an alter to the Buddha, start throwing things. The girl in the mall has purple hair? You know what to do.

We cannot allow these heathens to blaspheme the Word of GOD. We do not know when He is coming back, and we must always follow His Directions.

If we fail to channel God's wrath, we can only assume that His wrath will become focused upon us, during the coming End Times.

The sum of Your word is truth, And every one of Your righteous ordinances is everlasting. (Psalm 119:160)

Amber: I just checked out the website. The comments can be found here. I'm not seeing yours. Maybe it hasn't been posted yet, but maybe (just maybe) somebody saw through your attempt to infiltrate their website. Sorry.

Throwing all those rocks at people sounds interesting. Bad news though. You quoted the old testament which allows that. Jesus doesn't allow it in the new testament so if you are a real Christian you can't. It doesn't say anything to people who are not Christian or Jewish. One of the things it says is the person without sin can throw the first stone. Then it has to go and say that everybody has sin in their lives (kind of like mistakes and rebellions against parents, authorities, etc) It also says that whatever you do to others will be done to you only more so.
Bummer! No rocks.
God's wrath is focused on those who throw rocks not on those who are being kind and loving one another. There are standards of behavior but everybody has standards of some sort so it is not all that strange. One of yours appears to be to be nice and treat each other with kindness. It's a coincidence that it was one of the things Jesus taught.

Anonymous,

Maybe you should see what part of the bible the bit about not being gay is in (note the topic of the Daily Christian News Blog). I'll give you sec...

Oh, what's that you say? It's in Leviticus? Well isn't that quite a surprise! I guess that argument of yours isn't holding much water then, is it?

The blog on the "Daily" Christian News thing is more than a year old. I think there's a very good chance that the site is simply entirely dead and that's why Amber's comment hasn't been approved.
