I agree with you, but I was not going to go so far as to say such people are not Christians. My impulse was to put quotes around the word "Christians," to show my feelings about them, but I decided not to because it might be interpreted as anger or contempt, when I fact, I simply believe these people are just plain ol' sinners -- like me. The difference is, they are looking to the Bible to justify or get permission for their sins, whereas I look to the Bible for correction, confession and forgiveness. I did not want to go so far as to say they are not Christians, because they think they are, and if they are even opening the Bible and reading it, I pray that they will be hit upside the head and the heart by the truth of the Word and eventually grow in that truth. That's my long-winded way of saying, "Yes, James, you are right," though I hold out hope that the "cafeteria Christians" will become "Bible-believing Christians!"
Amen to that, Joycey.
Sadly, no -- there are plenty of Christians who view the Bible as an interesting, historical document with some good suggestions for right living, but not as something that is commanded by God nor wholly relevant for our modern times (though I consider it wildly relevant in our current climate!) These Christians are much like liberals who view the Constitution as a "living, breathing document" that can be "interpreted" to mean whatever they want it to mean. Often, these are the same Christians who will tell you that Jesus, were he alive today, would be a socialist. They would also tell you that Jesus never mentioned homosexuality, and that means He didn't care about it, which must mean He's A-OK with it. See, the Bible, like the Constitution, can mean whatever they want it to mean -- see what I mean? I respect their rights to believe as they wish, but I believe they are completely wrong-headed.

Well, Common Core and greater central planning/funding will fix everything, don'tcha know (sarc/off).
Why must Bible-believing Christians accept the LBGT community as they are when the LBGT community refuses to accept Bible-believing Christians as they are? I just don't get why this is a one-way street that ultimately leads to breaking the law if a Christian doesn't want to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple or thought crimes if a Christian doesn't believe that a gay couple is truly "married" in the eyes of god. Nobody -- neither Christians nor gays -- will like the fascism that follows as we quibble and argue along down that one-way street to totalitarianism.

Can't wait to see the documentary, though I'm sure it will make me ill to see what's going on behind the scenes. Thank you for your excellent work, Michelle.
