When I speak of Christians I am speaking of American Christians (GOP Type Republicans) specifically. If all American Christians were like Shimmer, American Christianity would be respected and popular. American Christianity brings separation and division. American Christians are BIG government if that big government favors them. If not then they cry "Ron Paul" or small government. The bimbo Queen is just one example. Like the bimbo Queen American Christians have no creativity because they have no critical thinking skills. Like brainwashed soldiers American Christians are trained to take orders and never question. Plus it is much easier that way. Independent creative thinking that includes strong minded individualistic critical thinking skills is much much harder.
Segregation - American Christians ran to the government in 1996 and implemented DOMA.
As you can clearly see by DOMA, American Christians love big government if it is theocratic. If not they cry the anti-Christ conspiracy. As everyone knows DOMA is not just a lie but it has brought a separation and a segregation:
Christians now have the private "marriage" club which they have attempted to monopolize and push on non-Christians. Clearly violating the separation of church and state. Fortunately their manipulation and government control is backfiring and caused separation. Christians VS the LGBT community. The words of Jesus himself preached separation and segregation : Matthew 10:34. "Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. 35 "For I have come to 'set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law'; 36 "and 'a man's enemies will be those of his own household.'
The fact that American Christians were the majority behind slavery is no secret. They were only following the book:
"Slaves obey your masters" ~Ephesians 6:5
The fact that American Christians think they have a monopoly on marriage and use "tradition" as there excuse just proves there lack of critical thinking skills. And there lack of historical understanding along side there lack of understanding in anthropology. In America the ONLY ones who have a right to claim tradition are the American Indians. Hundreds of thousands of years. Not this 2000 year old "new kid on the block" horse shit lie they keep blabbing about like a "holy" mantra.
Gay marriage IS the traditional marriage position. The two spirit traditionproves that without a shadow of doubt. There is NO question and there is NO debate if you know your history and your anthropology!!!
Um, I'm a conservative Christian, and I don't think I'm a bitch. But I can be......Let's take this step-by-step, shall we?
1) The govt. decided to license and tax marriage.
2) The voters decided whether or not to accept gay marriage. (Except in some states where their legislature decided, and DOMA, which Congress decided.)
3) Being a Christian by no means makes you a conspiratorial anti-gay basher. Believe it or not, I'm quite sure that I have far more gay friends than you could fathom. I tell you, the spirit of Christianity is love and forgiveness, not the hate and bigotry as you portray it to be.
4) This is where I thought I would throw in a knock-knock joke......Seriously; think on your words. Just as you are accusing a particular religious affiliation of bias; are you not doing the same?
@PrisonerxOfxLove - you hate gay people because you had your penis fondled by some guy when you were a kid. You admitted that on the recent gay marriage post at revelife as you were having another one of your many self righteous temper tantrums. Your ridiculous "logic" does not cover up your molestation history which has given birth to your EXTREME attitude on this subject and tells everyone there is something buried beneath the surface of your fake "pietism".
You better take your baggage and issues to a professional because the pedophile priests in you catholic church are not meeting your psychological and emotional issue's. Neither is you "god".
I have no issue with men sleeping with other men... as long as I am not married to him!
I am a Christian, also with plenty of gay friends. None of them criticize my religon, and I don't criticize their sexual preference. I am not a republican and I do not support theocracy.
Everything you just said is the most derogatory pile of crap I've heard from someone claiming to support freedom, love, peace, ACCEPTANCE.... How ignorant of you to stereotype an entire culture of people, a community multiple times larger than the gay community, for doing that exact same thing??? Imagine reading "Gay people are evil and stupid, gay people think tthey know everything. Except him, if all gay people were like him, then being gay would be okay". You should be ashamed of yourself. People like you are the reason that people get down on themselves. You bully people and stereotype them and tell them they are wrong because they are not like you. Is that not what you are fighting against??????
I hope my CHRISTIAN children never stumble upon your hateful garbage. Name calling, saying Christians lack critical thinking skills... Is that what you believe in? You are quite immature if you would rather the future generation ahere to this type of behavior rather than how things are going at the present time. You are just directing the bigotry elsewhere. You are solving nothing. If anyone has a selfish agenda, its you. You should feel priveledged to live in the most accepting time period in the most accepting country... ever.
You should learn to stand up for yourself without belittling others if you ever want a future in activism.
@LadyboyRevolution - They don't get it and won't ever get it. Which is why words don't work. Like I said, the sooner the LGBT community goes to full-out war and blasts their sorry asses off of the face of the planet, the better. That's the only way they're going to win their rights.
Tolerance doesn't get anyone anywhere. Revolution is the only way to change things.
@PrisonerxOfxLove - Do you have any secular reasons why gay couples shouldn't be allowed to file jointly on taxes, take out an insurance policy together, open a bank account together, make decision for/see each other in the hospital, among the other 1200+ rights only entitled to marry couples?
Just what I thought. You don't. Case closed. Not everyone believes in the lying sack of bullshit known as the Holey Babble (in fact, only stupid/insane people believe in that book, or any other religious book).
@PrisonerxOfxLove - Say that to the colonial Americans who raped and killed the Native Americans and then declared war against Great Britain to win their independence from theocracy. You love the United Shithole of America so much, but you're prepared to call its founders brainless because the founding fathers thereof resorted to violence to win their independence?
Talking out of both sides of your mouth, as always.
@PrisonerxOfxLove - The only one you've ever brought up is reproduction, which doesn't matter. It doesn't matter if we stop reproducing altogether. The human race going extinct wouldn't be an inherently bad thing.
@secretbeerreporter - Actually, the first Americans complained about the savages raping and killing them indiscriminately. You need to sue your teachers for malpractice since they left you full of hate and totally ignorant.
@PrisonerxOfxLove - Uh, I'm much smarter than you'll ever dream of being. I have a 160+ IQ, thank you very much.
You keep bringing up the "importance of gender" which implies reproduction in the modern era. Aside from that, men and women can do whatever they want to. Do you want to go back to the days where women weren't allowed to work? Hey, that's the most traditional gender role, isn't it? What about the days when women weren't allowed to vote or own property? Do you want to go back to that as well?
Well, I wouldn't be surprised. Religitards are the most archaic of people in this world, so whatever.
I am a Christian, also with plenty of gay friends.
LIE! There is no possible way you have "plenty of gay friends". Since gay people are statistically around 3%. If we say that 12 friends are "plenty of gay friends" that would be 400 friends total. Try pushing your horse shit on someone with a weak gullible mind who cannot think for him or herself. Like a Christian.
