Jesus Had Nothing Against Gays.

Manuel 2012/09/18 18:25:28
Although the conservative view point is God hates gays...yes I said it...Conservative do believe God hates gays...but Jesus loved a man...His name was John...

Jesus’ closest companions were a dozen men who followed his call to become his disciples. In addition, Jesus singled out three of the disciples (Peter, James, and John) whom he groomed for leadership. How he did this is not known if it was through his sexuality or teachings or both.

But here is where it gets unclear....“the one whom Jesus loved.” John, the so-called Beloved Disciple, is identified this way only in the Gospel of John and may have been his followers’ way of giving their mentor special status among the disciples. But still, it is remarkable that one of the official accounts of Jesus’ life, while on this earth authorized by the early Church to be a canonical book of Scripture, would name a particular young man as “the one whom Jesus loved” John was the youngest and a handsome person. Jesus wasn't handsome.

So this alone proves Jesus doesn't hate gays. It is not clear if Jesus had sex with John...we will never know...love is a big word. But one thing for sure is this kind of judgement is up to God Himself and not conservative contentious churchgoers...

    I will never understand how true Christians can ever align themselves with the Republican party. It's views and platform are antithetical to Jesus's and biblical teachings.

    Jesus seemed to have nothing against anyone.

    Except, ironically...the religious leadership.

    Having enemies make it seem all more important that your side take and keep control.

    Why does the left continue to slam the wealthy? Because it's useful to convince the constituency that their side is the only one that will protect it.

    Oh my... Because it is expedient that a few (or say, one) should be persecuted to save the 'sheep,' huh?

    How's it going?

    Well, I was going to write in Ron Paul - but Texas decided my vote wouldn't count. So when presented with controlled choices - I chose not to choose ;)

    Can you believe it? lol

    Nobody on the left is slamming the wealthy. But we will keep them in check...because we definitely don't want this country to be run by Vanderbilt and Rockefeller types again....

    LMAO... Right, right... Jesus loved Gays (which is true, He/God did not hate any man) and had sex with them? Give me a freakin' break. Jesus was not himself Homosexual.

    I'm a conservative and I have never once said that God hates gays. He hates the sin, but loves the sinner. Quite a big difference there don't you think?
  • Manuel Brendakp 2012/11/08 23:04:44

    too back that is not what the right is presenting...you need to teach that to your fellow conservatives...

    He had nothing against prostitutes either but there's clear evidence he didn't condone the practice.
  • Manuel Simmeri... 2012/09/18 18:43:26

    Where is the clear evidence in the Gospels he didn't condone the practice of same sex?

    In the same place where he didn't condone bestiality. Why? Because it was already understood from Leviticus. The absence of evidence isn't evidence of absence.
  • Manuel Simmeri... 2012/11/08 23:06:30

    that's the old testament ...not the New one.
  • Simmeri... Manuel 2012/11/09 00:07:54

    So the New Testament condones bestiality? Come on. Would you like some help with your debating skills?
  • Manuel Simmeri... 2012/11/16 17:58:31
    Manuel
    do you still sin?

    We're all guilty... don't forget that.
