Gun Owners: Should We Listen to Bob Costas or Jesus Christ?

Every century likes to re-interpret the Bible to its their current lifestyles. Cons like a Jesus that loves weapons. This writer, Doug Giles, even wrote a column a year or two ago portraying Jesus as a free-market capitalist who would have supported the ideas of Milton Friedman were he alive today. When the population is 90% peasants, Jesus is all about giving and ministering to the poor and oppressed. Gay people today in the urban subcultures prefer a Jesus who is in total sympathy with their civil rights movement as cons are with a Jesus who favors small government. We create our own Jesuses. Jesus becomes a sort of Rorschach ink blot test of a given population.

Exactly. It's a living Bible for a dying religion.

Christianity is an anvil that has worn out many hammers. The Christian church will continue to thrive long after you Dojindra , like all the other pathetic little hammers, are long gone.

It's already dying in Europe. And the politicization of it in the ISA is sign that it's becoming little more than a party organ.

Having read the Bible numerous times, I do not recall Jesus - or any other - being in sympathy, much less TOTAL sympathy, with any homosexual behaviour or their so-called "civil rights".

Fabricate much, will_8o8o?

Will, Jesus said the He and God the Father were One. What does God the FAther say about homosexuality? You talk about re-interpreting the Bible. Please tell us what the un-re-interpreted Bible says about the fate of homosexuals.

If YOU can't do this, why should we ever listen to your tripe?

I wonder what will's ancestors would think knowing that their hard work, hopes and dreams, plans for their future generations ceased up in a deadend with will.

We call that North Korea ... a land you should visit with your gay Jesus.

As most of you know, during a football game last week Bob Costas lectured us po’ goofy Americans about the evils of a “gun culture” and how we need to evolve away from being obsessed with firearms. As soon as I heard that drivel roll off Mr. C’s tongue I ordered another 30/06, a sweet Walther PPK and a custom .416 Rigby turnbolt. Cowabunga, Bob. Thanks for reminding me to buy more guns.

First off, let me help you, Robert: Guns do not kill people. Dads with daughters do. Oh, and BTW, Planned Parenthood kills a lot of people...
