Grammy’s Same Love

Of course homosexual behavior and being of African ancestry are exactly the same. Why, everyone knows that homosexual people were taken from their homeland en masse for a perilous journey, to be systemically enslaved, dehumanized, and raped/whipped/beaten/killed - legally. Everyone remembers when LGBT people were tortured and lynched in broad daylight with the entire town turning out to participate, celebrate, and pose for pictures with what was left of the corpses. Remember when LGBT people were forcefully segregated and subjected to Jim Crow laws? And, of course, everyone knows someone engages in homosexuality the moment they walk into a room, so it is just like skin color! And homosexual people earn more money than the general population. If that's not like being of African ancestry, I don't know what is.
Gluttony and greed includes obesity.
"Porn addiction" is not real. It is a phrase used by counselors to make money, people who like porn (usually men) to excuse their behavior, and to often to sooth spouses (usually wives) who want to object to porn viewing but don't want to leave the marriage ("He couldn't help it. He was addicted!) People, especially men, like seeing the human body and sexual activity. That's a normal state of male mentality, which could be part of our fallen nature, but is reality anyway. We just fixate on this issue because it tends to be a male problem, and like the rest of the culture, the church will sooner beat up on males than females.
You'd guess wrong, floridahank. And while mainstream entertainment is awful, there is much Christian media to choose from.
Another mention of porn? How many Christians/conservatives are overweight/obese or in debt? Yet we don't like to talk nearly as much about gluttony, greed, and gossip, which are all explicitly condemned in the Bible. Your husbands are going to see other women. Even if there was no media, even if everyone walked around in modest clothing, your husband is going to see the figures of other women. That's just reality. And no, the ubiquitous smut is not going to engulf your children in addiction and and turn them into mass murderers. Otherwise, we'd already have hundreds of millions of mass murderers. I am not defending smut, immodesty, fornication, or lusting. I just think we need to stop being so hysterical and fixated, ignoring that about a third of our congregations are OBESE, and another third are overweight, because it damages our credibility.
Oh, the Left likes to cite youth opinion on this as making it "inevitable" and "mandatory" that we change public policy right now. Funny, they never apply these principles when surveys reveal that most young people are much more pro-life in their positions on abortion than current abortion law.
Thanks for telling people about that.
I used to scoff at this. Then Leftists started demanding human rights for certain other species.
Brideless or groomless "marriage" should never be compared to things like polygamous or consanguineous marriages. After all, the latter two have always been recognized as actual marriages throughout human history in much of the world.
1) Are young people the best people to listen to about matters of marriage and family? We should be teaching them, not deferring to them. 2) With that in mind, is anyone surprised? The MSM, whether news or entertainment, has been in-the-tank to neuter marriage, overtly and subtly, relentlessly pushing for it. Marriage neutering advocates and homosexuality propagandists dominate academia, too. 3) Gays and lesbians are already "allowed to marry legally" in every state in the union. They are just as free to do so as heterosexuals. 4) Do these young Republicans favor FEDERAL judges forcing then neutering of marriage on states that have voted against the neutering of marriage, even though SCOTUS just last year indicated that this was a state, not a federal matter? Do these young Republicans not believe in freedom of association or powers reserved to the states? Do they believe every great civil rights leader in history was bigoted for not speaking up to neuter state marriage licenses? 5) I never want to hear any person who believes this to ever say anyone "should" get married due to a pregnancy or a born child. If two men can marry, marriage has nothing to do with children; it is only about the feelings of adults. 6) For the same reason, if they have married parents who believe marriage requires both a bride and groom, their parents should announce they are divorcing, and if any of these young Republicans are displeased by this, their parents should tell them "Our marriage is only about our feelings. Not the rest of the family."
You should see the annual swimsuit issue!
