Your three examples sound just like the undeducated bible thumpers I grew up with. To win an argument they would claim it was scripture, thump the bible and claim 'It's in the good book,' as if everything they thought was in there was, including asinine interpretations. These guys go to public schools?

If anything, you sound like a product of public schools. Your "argument" is nothing but an ad hominem attack and griping about your asinine interpretation of Christians. That was pretty typical of the leftist "teachers" I had to deal with in college - those wonderful "free thinkers" who could never dream of tolerating disagreement with their "facts," and never missed an opportunity to preach how their atheism trumps Christianity.

Actually, there is a lot of intelligent debate in Christian circles over interpretation of scripture, what values are Christian values, etc.

I know a few lib Christians..not many...but I have read some blogs by a few as well......and they feel it is not inconsistent to be pro-gay, pro-woman, and embrace the ideas of social justice.

Really? Scripture is NOT to be "interpreted", it's to be studied and hopefully understood.

Of course it has to be interpreted, it's got parables in it, doesn't it?

You just can't interpret it however you like, you have to interpret (to the best of your ability) what it ACTUALLY was intended to mean.

Liberal academics have been using speech codes for years. They hear an idea they don't like and it makes them angry. But they don't quite know how to defeat the idea on its own merits. So instead of either a) taking the time to cool down and offer a rational response, or b) actually changing their view, they simply give in to the impulse to censor. That is why our campus speech codes really don't reduce so-called hate speech. They simply embolden those who hate speech.

I wish I could say that this childish inclination toward censorship is unique to liberal...
