Secondly, yeah, I posted about Marin because I thought it would be welcome news to many here -- if, for no other reason, only to show that hearts are capable of change and growth. However, the issue (surprise!) is deeper than that.
If I may hazard yet another link, Andrew Sullivan has an ongoing back-and-forth on the topic over at his blog at The Atlantic
, Daily Dish
I was merely being informative.
Thanks for the link. The first poster makes me sigh. What are we supposed to do? Give him (?) a medal for thinking it's ok for gay people to have equal rights while his stands there holding his nose because of our 'lifestyle'? - a pejorative use of the word if there ever was one?
It's the same- I think - with Marin. He's just nicer. "Oh look everyone! See what a wonderful Christian I am to the gay people!" That's how he's coming across. Like one of those Pharisees who stands on the street corner and prays really loudly. Didn't JC have something to say about that?
Should both be condemned? No. But let's not fool ourselves. What they are offering is NOT love. Their God doesn't love us. That's the way they see it apparently. And they want us to tolerate their niced-up intolerance?
Now is the time for more non-violent resistance, not less.
