It Gets Better founder apparently has no problem bullying Christians

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Dan Savage earns a living giving people sex advice, which usually amounts to nothing more than just encouraging students and others to engage in sexual activity. Not surprisingly, he’s no fan of the Bible. In a recent speech to students, the founder of the ‘It Gets Better’ anti-bullying campaign decided not to talk about bullying but instead rip Christians and the Bible.

Watch the shocking video below:

“Nothing wrong with anti‑bullying stuff,” Glenn said.

“It’s very good stuff. We should all get along, we should all work together, we can disagree with each other but we don’t have to hate each other, we don’t have to do any of that stuff. And I think we’ve made great progress as human beings on being decent to each other. But we are being dragged back to absolute hatred every step of the way.”

Glenn, however, was not a fan of the Dan Savage bashed the Bible and encouraged people in attendance to ridicule those who chose to turn the other cheek and exit the lecture rather than hear someone beat up on their most sacred text.

“He just beats on the Bible and beats on the Bible and these kids get up and walk out and they ‑‑ they’re cheered as they’re walking out like good, good riddance. And then he starts to bash them while they’re out in the hallway. This is an anti‑bullying campaign.”

“So at an anti‑bullying conference, he calls the kids who get up and leave pansy ass,” Pat said.

The Blaze has done an in-depth report on Savage and his ties to the White House which you can read HERE.

    Mr Savage is showing the truth of his own hypocrisy; he shows the uttermost depravity of his methods and ideology across the board, and his intolerance for those who may dare to hold an opinion seperate from his own.

    Hypocrisy.

    Dan Savage apparently has been very wounded by Christians in the past, or maybe it’s his conscience… if he has one.  We must endeavor to try to love and pray for people like this.  He should absolutely be removed from the position of speaking for ANY “anti-bullying organization” until someone is able to help him work through his past hurts.  By the way, the good Lord could do that, if he let Him help him.

    Jesus loves Dan Savage. Dan is not bullying anybody, but telling the truth about how the Bible is being distorted to hurt people. Jesus would be ashamed at the way Christians organizations distort the bible to humiliate people.

    This guy doesn’t understand Christianity. Jesus said this would happen to us and it will get worse because we follow him. Yes the Bible does teach these things about homosexuality that does rip at people like him and sometimes I think we Christian took it to far. Yes the Bible says it is a sin but if they don’t want to be Christian then we should not push the matter on them it is their choice as we have a choice to follow God or not. That being said yes this guy should resign for acting like a bully at an anti-bully conference. Those teenagers walking out on him are heroes for Christ because not only did they took a stand when this bully was going on his rant and now their peers know who they are and most likely be hounded for their rest of their time in high school pray for them. People like them are our only hope. Jesus told us this would happen prepare yourselves brothers and sisters.

    How is the Bible being distorted to hurt people? Savage is attacking the Bible because it doesn’t agree with his worldview.  Tolerance hypocrisy is okay with gays, lesbians, pro aborts, liberation theologists, etc…  Anti Christian rhetoric should qualify as a hate crime in our PC world but it won’t be because it doesn’t support the leftist agenda. 
    Don’t speak for Jesus, imitate Him!

    But that what it says in the Bible who is distorting what. Yes Jesus would not want his father’s words to bash people over the head with it but he would not want his followers to lie about what is in the Bible. I say if they want to live that way then let them but I will not lie about the words of God yet I will not push it on someone who does not want to hear. As Jesus said if they refuse to listen then dust your sandals off and move on.

    Kudos to the young men and women who walked away silently.  I think for the most part they were just simply offended and had to go somewhere else where someone wasn’t attacking their moral fibers for no apparent reason.  
    Does anyone ever stop and think why the bible opposes homosexuality?  It’s because the foundation of trust and love is the family.  The mother and father provide for children of their own blood and genetic dispositions to nurture prosperity for everyone involved (the family unit as a whole).  When people who grow up in families like this see someone in need, they treat them with love and respect, because that is what family is all about.  
    But the bible has a caveat, love and respect the gay people too.  Feed them if they are hungry. Work for them on saturday if they are your coworker and they have a funeral to go to. The bible has its own positions, but it respects the positions of those who oppose it. If you truly understand the bible you will truly understand that principle.

    Amen.  Christianity is about love, mercy and forgiveness, not forced conformity with violence or hate.  Relativism is a distortion of truth.  Charity towards others in opposition is difficult but must be strived for.  Love the sinner hate the sin.  Homosexuality is grave depravity according to the Bible.  Those with homosexual tendencies have a difficult cross bear through chastity.  Immorality is a temptation we all have to resist.  Christ shows us the way by obedience and sacrifice, not justification and self righteousness.  Yes, Christ loves all of us but hates our sins; they continue to stripe him painfully.

    In 
    Matthew 19:12  Christ says; 
    For some are eunuchs because they were born that way; others were made that way by men; and others have renounced marriage because of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it.”

    When he references those born that way, he’s talking about modern day homosexuals. I can accept it, but not everyone can.

    I think that you might need to change your name…you’re hardly the “real” voice of anything other than an enema. 

    I think the real “panty-ass” (really mature and professional to launch into a profanity-laced tirade in front of students), is the bully at the microphone. 

    Really brave guy name-calling to people’s backs. 

    And what, pray tell, would be more appealing to you? Attempting to shout down like the idiot leftists do when they attend a speaking engagement of someone they don’t like? 

    I mean, in this case, the proper and mature thing to do was to leave. Why sit and listen to mental drivel? 

    Furthermore, what would happen if this mental midget was selling his wares in some Islamic country like, say…Saudi Arabia? 

    Or speaking openly in a Western Nation about the sexist policies and beliefs of Islam? What, he doesn’t know that in Iran homosexuals are thrown from rooftops? 

    No, the Bible is the problem. 

    Well, as a Bible-believing Christian, I can say that the one word from God that is used to describe the acts of homosexuals- ABOMINATION. 

    I’ll never go burn crosses on anyones lawn, and I’ll never throw stones. But I will never support, accept, or allow my family to succumb to these acts. I’ll let others make decisions for themselves, and I will live peaceably with them. I’ve had gay friends in my life. 

    But I will never accept their chosen behavior.

    This guy goes on a rant against the Bible instead of talking about bullying. I find that he is disigenious at best and dishonorable at worst. Why does he find it necessary to defend his choice of personal behavior? People came to hear about bullying not anti-Christian rants.

    This is the first time i have ever heard of this dan savage…..CHRISTIANS….isn’t it interesting to note the one faith in this world ridiculed openly happens to be the correct faith?  In as much as the devil likes to confuse the world with various false doctrines. The one doctrine that is mocked is the one in which salvation is introduced through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  Jesus loves you unconditionally so much that He demonstrated this by going willingly to the cross to pay for a debt He did not owe because we owed a debt we could not pay.  The devil is a liar to say the true believers do not like sinners of one kind or another, if this were so we would be self haters.  The only way to comprehend the holy bible is through the Holy Spirit of our risen Savior……pray-ask the Creator of the universe to reveal the truth of your existence through the holy word of our Heavenly Father.  Step out in faith by seeking the kingdom of God.  The Lord will reveal Himself to you if you truly seek to know the truth.  The Lord will reveal the holy bible to you if you ask Him, as asking is the first step of faith. Faith pleases the One who created you.  Prayers have been sent to our Father in Heaven in hopes of your salvation today.
    Remember, we are all sinners, some of us just happen to be saved through Christ Jesus,

    Slavery isn’t the easiest moral question- murder is.  So from the beginning, you’re arguing from a false premise, because any sane person doesn’t even question the Bible’s position on murder.  Furthermore, the fact that our society fails to conform to the Bible on many issues is not any sort of evidence that the Bible is wrong, and saying otherwise is an is/ought fallacy.

    The truth is, when people do something “wrong” they want others to do the same thing…..thinking that makes them “right”…. at some point in life you have to decide if you are a follower or a leader.   The students that walked out are leaders, and the sheeples remained in their seats, laughted at the jokes, so they could feel better about their own behavior.  It is refreshing to see students with convictions, and the guts to walk out quietly.  I’m sure they are the ones who get the least sympathy or understanding, as Mr. Savage showed.

    Many things in OT are  not valid in the NT. However homosexuality is explicitly mentioned in NT as wrong. If this gay guy does not want to believe it, fine but needs to stop the hate speech on those who do. It is a matter of your world view and does not have to be a matter of hate either way. There is room enough for all of us here but after that not so much.

    More likely eunuchs by birth means exactly what it says- they were born with a deformity that makes them incapable of sexual relations and thus incapable of marriage.  Someone who has homosexual desires that he cannot channel into heterosexuality but chooses to follow Christ faithfully anyway would be a eunuch for the sake of the Kingdom of Heaven- someone who chooses a life of celibacy in order to remain faithful to God, whether because he prefers the single life to marriage, feels that he cannot in good conscience take marriage vows, cannot find a suitable wife or would prefer to marry but instead offers his sexuality as a free-will offering to God, forsaking his right to be a husband and father in order to be of greater use to the Kingdom.

    As long as he abstains from sexual immorality, both in deed and in thought, he will be greatly blessed.  “Pick up your cross and follow Me,” says the Lord, and all who put to death the desires of the flesh in favor of Christ will be saved.  It is difficult indeed to endure a life of celibacy, but God will give the grace and strength sufficient to endure it and reap the blessing.  Blessed indeed are the faithful married, and their children are a heritage unto the Lord.  Blessed are those married couples who mourn their infertility, for they shall be comforted, and their fidelity shall not be in vain.  Indeed, we can hope that perhaps they have many children in Heaven- miscarriages known only to God whose souls He received unto Himself.  Finally, most blessed are they who are incapable of marriage or swear off marriage and instead rejoice in a life of celibacy and service to the Lord, for the Lord will remember their trials and reward them greatly for their faithfulness and self-sacrifice.  Indeed, it was once said that celibacy is a form of martyrdom, for the celibate man and the virgin woman die childless for the sake of the Lord.

    The bible does calls homosexuality a sin. The religious use this to support their fashionable bigotry against homosexuals. People hate gays and work backwards from there finding quotes from the bible to make them feel better about discriminating against homosexuals.

    If that wasn’t the case, then those same people would be calling for:

    The stoning of disobedient children: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Deuteronomy+21%3A18-21&version=KJV

    The stoning of women who aren’t virgins are their wedding day:
    http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Deuteronomy+22&version=NIRV 

    Laws that forbid the blending of fabrics like wool and linen: 
    http://bible.cc/deuteronomy/22-11.htm 

    I could go on.

    The bible doesn’t discuss whether or not slavery is wrong. It talks about the proper way to treat the slaves you already own. The Christian god has very specific rules for the best way to own someone, and how much your daughter is worth.

    Okay vacuum/vacuous-do you ever listen?

As a recent poster said the  word for slave is the same word as employee, and Masters/employers needed to be told how to treat their employees. In any case, that is a very minor part of the Bible and had you ever actually read it, and applied even the most minimal literary analysis (hermeneutics) you would know better than to make such a stupid irrelevant comment. But then, you always post stupidity, and reveal your ignorance. Please stop inflicting your profane stupidity on us.
    When Jesus repeated the Ten commandments, He instructed the following: “The greatest of these (the ten commandments) is to love the Lord Thy God will all thy heart, mind and soul and thy neighbor as thyself”

    Jeff, your example below about stoning were to the Jews/Hebrews – not Christians.  The Hebrews were under the law and there is a whole teaching behind that which is way too deep to get into here.  This was a certain time and a place and the Jewish/Hebrew people were held to the Law which could never be kept by any man.  The purpose is to show man that he cannot save himself – not by what he does/his works.  No matter how “good” of a person man thinks he is – compared to God and His holiness, a man’s works are as filthy rags.  To this end man needed a Savior – God so loved the world that He gave His on begotten Son – Jesus Christ.  He sent Jesus Christ to save mankind because it is absolutely impossible for man to ever be good enough and holy enough to save himself.  God love us.  God loves you.  Nobody hates gays – not real Christians and most certainly not God.  But homosexuality is a sin in the bible and God is not going to change his mind just because it’s popular today – that’s the way it is.  You either believe the bible is the Word of God or you don’t.  Christians are saved by grace so sacrifice and stoning are not in the new testament – but love for God and each other is.  Love the Lord your God with your whole heart, mind and soul.  In Christianity, the body is the temple of God… the Holy Spirit comes to live in us when we accept Jesus Christ and starts transforming a person from the inside out.  God changes the heart … it takes time but it happens. You can’t sodomize the temple of God for crying out loud and call yourself a Christian – it is unholy. Christians are not perfect people – they can never be – not while on this earth.  we are sinners friend there is no doubt about it.  Christians are people who know they can no longer do it on their own – they have tried and tried until they finally turn their lives over to God to do it His way.  That is the difference between a person who believes in Jesus and one who doesn’t.  the person who doesn’t believes they can do it on their own and in their own way – and lead lives without hope.  A Christian knows they can’t do it on their own – we know we need God in our lives. I hope this helps.  And may you come to know the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

    The Bible consistently tells us that homosexual activity is a sin (Genesis 19:1-13;Leviticus 18:22; 20:13; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9). Romans 1:26-27 teaches specifically that homosexuality is a result of denying and disobeying God. When people continue in sin and unbelief, God “gives them over” to even more wicked and depraved sin in order to show them the futility and hopelessness of life apart from God. 1 Corinthians 6:9 proclaims that homosexual “offenders” will not inherit the kingdom of God.

    God does not create a person with homosexual desires. The Bible tells us that people become homosexuals because of sin (Romans 1:24-27) and ultimately because of their own choice. A person may be born with a greater susceptibility to homosexuality, just as some people are born with a tendency to violence and other sins. That does not excuse the person’s choosing to sin by giving in to sinful desires. If a person is born with a greater susceptibility to anger/rage, does that make it right for him to give into those desires? Of course not! The same is true with homosexuality.

    However, the Bible does not describe homosexuality as a “greater” sin than any other. All sin is offensive to God. Homosexuality is just one of the many things listed in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 that will keep a person from the kingdom of God. According to the Bible, God’s forgiveness is just as available to a homosexual as it is to an adulterer, idol worshipper, murderer, thief, etc. God also promises the strength for victory over sin, including homosexuality, to all those who will believe in Jesus Christ for their salvation (1 Corinthians 6:11; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Philippians 4:13).

    This fellow (Dan Savage) is probably too self-absorbed to understand that he is advocating for exactly what communism has advocated for in every corner of the globe that it has ever appeared, and that is simply the denial of the existence of God, because it is paramount to the ultimate conversion and subsequent “enslavement” of people to the power of centralized government.
     
    His obliviousness to the realization that the size, color, strength, and quality of rope that he demands to extract from an unwilling society, will be that with which his communist overlords will eventually hang him.

    Nowhere in the Bible does God take pleasure in destroying any of his creatures, regardless of their wickedness.  Christians worship a merciful God who is always ready to forgive.  So much that He sent His Son to suffer for all of our sins.  We only have to believe, repent and follow.  Destruction is a choice made by man’s free will not God’s.  It’s really pretty simple, although difficult at times, when you decide who to serve: God or yourself.

Don’t you realize that Islam teaching and practice is everyone has to be Muslim and that Islam is spread by the sword, (non believers are put to death), and that all other religions including atheists are Satan and need to be eradicated?
    Your stupidity and hatred knows no bounds. You prove it with every post you make.

    It would be like forcing Jews and Muslims to eat pork and you have to understand we Christians don’t use the Old Testament the way you left wingers think we use it for. See the more important part to a Christian is the New Testament and the whole slavery argument goes to show me that this guy has no clue why the rules are there to begin with. They owned slaves back then the Bible was telling them to treat their slave’s right. Sometimes in that culture people became slaves when they could not pay their debates they owned and worked until they had it paid off. The Jews treated their slaves differently then we did here. Like I said the guy does not understand history and the bible. One more point when you host an anti-bully conferees you should not become the bully.

     There was a time in the Bible when a woman was thrown against the wall in front of Jesus to be stoned for adultery.  Jesus quietly but firmly told them to “let him who is without sin cast the first stone.”  Then He told the woman to go her way and sin not more.

    There is no justification for calling anyone that and they were not fleeing “a fair criticism of your belief system”. Savage is not fair and he set up straw dogs to knock down. They didn’t flee, they just left. I would too. Savage spews vile hypocrisy. Of course, I wouldn’t have gone in the first place.

    We all take our own person journey and decide for ourselves what is truth.  I don’t tell others what to believe, that is for them to decide.  But I don’t insult others for their beliefs.  I know that many people suffer from having religion being forced upon them and then need to rebel and lash out, perhaps that is you?  But many of us came to our belief for reasons you may never be able to understand. 

    Discussion of different views can be enlighting, but insulting another’s belief is wrong.  Whose “truth” do they need to learn…..yours? 

    If you said….”stop trying to shelter these kids and let them hear another point of view.  I think the bible is bullshit”……I wouldn’t have a complaint.  But I’m not sure what gives you the right to claim to know TRUTH.

    Your joking right? Christians havent lived by Levitical law for 2000 thousand years. Since……Oh yeah since the first Christians. But then again why you bother with facts when you can just say something that makes no sense at all .  Telling a christain that he should stone a woman for lack of virginity reaks of complete ignorance. Jesus Christ Himself Told Jewish men to knock it off. because they were not with out sin. and had no business stoning a woman for Adultry. We as Christians dont belive in killing people for sins. But we are asked to pray for our enemies. And stand for our beliefs as peacefully as possible. This speaker is a complete Bafoon. But i guess he can keep spreading his hate-filled rhetoric as long as teenagers and teachers loudly applaud adding to total amount of Ignorance in the room.

    You proved nothing. You only sourced the Bible on the blending of wool
    and linen, and there are good reasons for that. I don’t think that is a
    good blend for fabric and I don’t know of any garment so made.  The rest
    came from biblegate.com. You don’t understand the Old Testament. The Christian God? Where in the New Testament does it say “owning” someone is right and how much your daughter is worth?  You look for contradictions and passages that support your unsupportable position, but you have not employed even the most rudimentary literary analysis or you couldn’t  sincerely say any of that.
    In any case, I don’t hate gays and I don’t believe it is “fashionable bigotry” to hate gays, nor is it in the Bible, which says only that it is sin along with other sins. Again, if you employed literary analysis you would know that.
     It is “fashionable bigotry” to degrade and discriminate against and criticize Christians based on misinterpretations of the Bible and assumptions of what constitutes Christianity.  What I personally object to is giving special rights to gays, because they are gay. That is not bigotry-just the opposite. I also object to making a hate crime just because a victim happens to be or claims to be gay. Crimes against women, because they are women (rape, beatings), and crimes against children are not classified as hate crimes but they truly are.

God is a spirit and he uses humans to encourage others to believe his bible. DON’T MISS THIS Satan also is a spirit and he also uses humans to discourage others to not believe in the bible. NOW YOU TELL ME WHO SPIRIT WAS ON THE PLATFORM SPEAKING IN THIS MEETING. and it was done right out in the open, you saw a man standing there but, IT WAS THE DEVIL AT WORK . THE BIBLE SAID LET NO MAN DECEIVE YOU, THAT WASN’T NO MISTAKE AT ALL. that was done purposely, the devil has an agenda and you are going to see him {Satan} do it more and more openly in the media under the law of freedom of speech. but Gods group will not be deceived because THEY WILL STAY WITH THE WORD SATAN WILL NEVER OUT DO GOD NOR WILL HE PULL ONE OVER ON HIM.

    What people like Dan Savage fail to realize is that God does not care what his opinions are.  God respects no person’s opinions, and He doesn’t have to, nor will He.  God has defined sin/unrighteousness (see the 10 Commandments for example), and that is the standard by which He will judge each person. 
    Any person who passes from this life without a saving faith in Christ will be instead judged according to his/her deeds in the physical life.  If you broke even one of God’s laws (hint: it’s impossible not to have), you will be separated for eternity from God. 
    God is fully aware that the vast majority of people will choose to reject His message (and warnings) out of pure fleshly rebellion just as His “stiff-necked” people did for thousands of Old Testament years, even though many of them had firsthand witness of His presence and authority. 
    For the overwhelming majority of people, this world as it exists today is as good as it’s going to get, no matter how good or bad that is.  For those who respond to Christ’s draw in repentance, this life is an opportunity to spread the Gospel in prayerful hope of many more saved souls before going to live in peaceful existence with our Creator forevermore.  Read Matthew 7:13-14 for context…choose life.

     You said you don’t tolerate intolerance. You are therefore intolerant. Homosexuals have equality under the law. All (men) are created equal, they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights….life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”  They can leave property to other gays by a will; they can make legal and medical decisions for each other (power of attorney). They have NO right to force anyone to accept their sexual activity or choices. I tolerate gays (toleration meaning allowing to exist that which I personally abhor) I will NOT be forced to change the meaning of toleration to acceptance and giving gays special and more rights than they are entitled to as human beings.

    Well, it’s seems clear that the left is trying to frame the narrative as the big bad Christian right against the poor little persecuted homosexuals.  And the administration is using bullied, bullies to do their dirty work on the impressionable youth.  The more Christians try to justify objections Biblically, the more the left use it as a hate card to demonize the Christian right.   It’s a trap that must be avoided by understanding the far left’s strategy to use homosexuals to suite their own ends. 

    Most people don’t form their objection to homosexualty because of religion, they form it out of a sense of natural sexual relationships.  Religion gets pulled into the arguement out of love for the souls of the potentially lost and it usually implies condemnation.  Once religion is cornered into condemning homosexual acts as immoral, a persecution is manufactured and a victim is created.  This victimization demands to be recognized as a legitimate civil rights violation and labels all objections to it, be it secular or religious, as inequality.  Once the majority accepts this manufactured premise as true, then anyone who objects is considered a bigot.

    We are getting very close to this reality.  

    Granted, their are homosexuals who are treated badly for many ignorant reasons, but I don’t think it’s mainly because of religion.  Actually, it can be argued that Christians are the most tolerant toward them.  The issue of inequality is always and only raised because of gay marriage.  Civil unions are widely accepted and usually have all the benefits that married couples enjoy, but marriage is the key to the hidden agenda behind the phony civil right.

    Once gay marriage is considered mainstream and normal, the real persecution will start.  Anyone who objects to homosexualtity will be considered a bigot who is commiting a hate crime.  Religious institutions will be forced to change their beliefs or else.  Does this sound familiar to you.  It should.  The Catholic church is in the middle of a similar battle right now over health care.  It’s no coincedence that this battle started so quickly with the new healthcare law that the administration is desperately trying to make mainstream and permanent. 

    Ultimately, orthodox faith is the last line of defense to preserve our liberty.  The attacks are here and coming.  Now is the time for truth to set all free.

     Again, if you understood literary analysis and employed it, you wouldn’t say such foolishness. Stating homosexuality as one of many sins has nothing whatever to do with Talmudic law about stoning. Did you find any passage that said the sin of homosexuality required punishment by stoning? You are being illogical, irrational and irrelevant. BTW, the “disobedient children” was and is known to be disrespect of a most egregious nature by adult children, a very different matter altogether than your implication. Christians are not picking and choosing what to treat as reality. You are creating conflict and contradiction where there are none.

     Try to be rational. You have no evidence of anything. You believe in nothing. You insisted that Krauss has the answer and “proof” that God does not exist, that something (the universe) came from nothing. That is his theory, not proof and he undermined himself, his science, the atheist/science community and his belief in nothing by defending his pedophile buddy Epstein, using his flawed and false scientific methodology, and you think you can get anyone to think in your “rational way”? You are irrational, illogical at best. I have considered the evidence and have concluded that you are a fool and that if believing in God is irrational, I’d far rather be that than the fool you are, whose only joy is the false idea that you have all the answers and need to harass and lie to anyone who has a moral compass and the joy of believing in God.

    I pray that Dan Savage will change his surname – “Savage”. How about “iel (IEL). A new name – “Dan Iel” or Daniel. So he’ll have God’s wisdom. If he choose not to seek God – let him be thrown in a lion’s den. Surely, he’ll be eaten up. Also, the school’s administration should be responsible. They should screen their speakers. Speakers that will add knowledge to the students to be the person God’s wants them to be and not to hate, to be egoistic and conform to this world. Speakers that will impart or focused on what they can contribute to society, to have a purpose in life and not focused more on their defects. Better yet, Mr. Savage should let the students watch “Patch Adams”. 

    And to all the parents of those students who attended and happily listened to Dan Savage’s lies and deceitful speech, should rewired the minds of your children. Speak and point them to the only One who can provide all their needs. Read the Bible (our guide to live life and not just to exist), with them. You are the first who should be responsible for you were entrusted and blessed by God, to rear these children. You are accountable to your Creator.

     You make some excellent points Betty, but I will have to disagree with you on some. To say that a man cannot save himself and then turn and say that Christians are people who know they can no longer do it on their own is a contradiction. The Bible teaches us that man has no more ability to save himself eternally than he does to damn himself eternally. We came into the world in the image of God, but by Adam and Eve’s transgressions we are all doomed eternally until the mighty hand of God reaches down to save us, not by our works, but by his grace (Rom 9:13-16). People want to misuse John 3:16 as a way to keep themselves in the equation. He didn’t die for the whole world past, present and future (every man, woman, and child in existence from the beginning of time to the end). He died for the world of his elect (Eph 1:3-5).

    John 3:16 also brings me to my next point. To say that God loves everyone who has ever or who will ever exist is to say that God is a hypocrite. When you get a chance read Psalms 5:4-6. These verses along with several others are often ignored by those who want to believe that God only loves and never hates. God is not the author of confusion. He didn’t destroy Sodom & Gomorrah because he loved them. He did it because of their sin was unforgivable. People tend to forget that hell is not an eternal punishment for those who do not choose him in this life. If we are all children of God and he loves us all, the only thing to infer is that we are all Heaven bound, otherwise Jesus’ death was in vain. He died for the sins of ALL his CHILDREN. If even one sheep is lost then Jesus’ death was of no affect.

    “But homosexuality is a sin in the bible and God is not going to change
    his mind just because it’s popular today – that’s the way it is.  You
    either believe the bible is the Word of God or you don’t.  Christians
    are saved by grace so sacrifice and stoning are not in the new testament
    – but love for God and each other is.  Love the Lord your God with your
    whole heart, mind and soul.  In Christianity, the body is the temple of
    God… the Holy Spirit comes to live in us…”

    These are all great statements, but then that’s where you go the way most people go, “when we accept Jesus Christ…” There is no place in the Bible that says man has to accept Jesus, or else. This is simply man doing what he does best, and what churches have done for a very long time, and that is to put his own spin on God’s salvation. Man is dead in trespasses and in sin, not partly dead, yet partly alive just enough to make a decision. Making a mental decision for or against Christ is a work. “Not by works, lest any man boast.” Eph 2:9.

    The rest of your statements are also great points. But one thing to remember is that we love God because he first loved us. Not the other way around. God has to be present before we understand what true love is. God is not going to come in, take out the stony heart and put in a heart of flesh just so that we can say, “I don’t want this.” Only a false god would perform such and act. It’s a change of heart, not a change of mind. Life must precede action. Therefore, the difference in a Christian and a non-Christian is the presence of God. A Christian knows he can do it because with God all things are possible. A non-Christian is still dead, therefore they are not going to care what God thinks or does. Dan Savage is a non-Christian. He doesn’t care. Christians are wasting their time engaging in any form of debate when it comes to God and the Bible.

    There is one more thing I would like to add. When you get a chance look up the definition of grace. I think Webster still defines it as “unmerited favor”, meaning you did nothing to warrant it. Again, “Not by works.”

    Profanity again? Use your words. Sorry, you don’t have any.

     Knowledge of the atom is recent. Doctors did not accept germ theory (actually bacteria) until very recently. Darwin did not know either. Does that make him stupid? Actually he was, almost as intellectually dishonest as you, but not because he didn’t talk about or know atoms and germs.

     That does not make the “guys that wrote the bible” stupid because they didn’t talk about germs or atoms as such, but if you had ever actually read it, they did know and write about things that were not “discovered” until 1600-1900 years later. They didn’t pretend to “scientific” knowledge, but where they touched on areas of biology or astronomy or geology, the Bible has been proven correct. Every attempt to discredit specific statements in the Bible regarding history, biology etc. has resulted in proving the statements accurate. So, those things which are unprovable by science are most likely to be true, if the specific details that can be proven or disproven are proved to be true or can’t be discredited. On an evidential basis, the Bible is credible. Of course, you wouldn’t know the rules of evidence or what constitutes evidence. All you can do is employ your limited, offensive, profane vocabulary in your feeble attempt to be acknowledged. You poor pathetic waste of time.

    Here is what I love. The Christian god was once not against slavery. And instead of examining that fault and realizing he doesn’t exist, you justify his abhorrent position with technicalities.

    I LOVE not having to justify an absurd god.

     What makes an adult? Voting? Then most except a few seniors are children. Drinking legally? They are still children. Criminal activity, like shooting each other, drugs, theft? Still children.
    You project too much. The only fairyland is in your head. You do not know what constitutes Christianity, the central fact of Christianity. You do not know why the kids (children you acknowledge by your choice of words). You assume too much. If you knew anything, you would know that Christians are admonished to seek the truth, to know the truth, to use their minds and wisdom to justify their faith. You are so afraid of the truth, so afraid that Christians might actually have the truth, know the truth, you have to degrade, denigrate, profane and in general act the fool to try to avoid dealing with the possibility you could be wrong. You pathetic waste of space and time. Like a dog turns to his vomit, you turn to your folly …….

    No he does not undertand Christianity or the whole Bible in fact.  Have you ever noticed that Christians never get angry because others don’t believe in Christ?  But have you ever noticed how angry most atheists get at the mention of Christ?  I mean really, if someone believed in the tooth fairy, you would not be angry with them, you would either laugh them or pity them.  But when they get angry, they prove his existence because nobody in their right mind gets angry at something that does not exist.

    As the Bible (or Book of Mormon, can’t remember which) says, “Good will be called evil and evil will be called good.” Homosexual engagement is a sin. Period. The feelings in and of themselves are not; they’re something that you should work to overcome, though.  I am not a bully and would never bully someone for being gay. However, someone who preaches that gays, or anyone else for that matter, should not be bullied, and then bullies people himself for something that he doesn’t agree with is a hypocrite. Who does he expect to take advice from a hypocrite? I’m thinking that his campaign should be renamed to “It gets better so long as you’re not Christian.”

    Exactly, and why would the world have such a problem with Christianity over all other religions, even those religions such as Islam who would kill homosexuals in a New York second? And do..Because Satan is not afraid of the other religions which belong to him. Only Christ has the power to destroy Satan. Christ is the only living God..All others are dead men or idols..All people even atheist have the DNA of God and deep in their soul they know the truth but deny it so they can sin,, Christianity is a reminder of that sin and they don’t want to feel guilty or give up their  sin life..They don’t want to have to answer to anyone or anything for their actions so they lie to themselves so they don’t have to face facts. The Truth is the Bible..The Bible is not easy to understand for someone who tries to read it for the first time without bible scholars and preachers to teach them .. There is a ton of great books out there that explain much more than can be told on here.. So much and so exciting.

    May God Bless those kids who had the the charachter to walk out on that evil man. All Christians should be so strong..

  • landofaahs

    For the benefit of man at different times God would show how we cannnot keep the law and thus are in need of his grace, yet God may always opt for judgment. As he said “I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy”. Those kids that walked out, gives me a little hope about the future.

     Grant,I myself have similar beliefs as you to a point. When you said Jesus didn’t die for the whole world,I just can’t see it that way. John 3:17 says “For God sent not his Son into the World to condemn the World;But that the world through Him Might me saved,”  Key word that i see is “Might” never said all  or most  would be saved, But even if one were saved from certain damnation, Wouldn’t it be worth it?

    Some say there is no God or heaven, but I can say for sure that there is a devil / satan at work in the world. I just saw and heard a small  example. God rules heaven, Satan rules the world. The battle lines are being drawn, soon you’ll have to makeup your mind. Whether to except the mark of the beast or the salvation of your soul. 

    This is true freedom of choice, life or death, both figuratively and in reality.

    Allowing Christian bashing political activists to speak at public high schools is hypocritical when Christianity itself has been banned from there.

    Maybe they could have discussed Biblical passages that the sodomite was referring to with “a thick skin” but we can never say because to do so would result in some school official losing their job.

    Such hate speak is only allowed in this context, where good is determined to be evil and evil is the new good.

    BTW, what gay folks are “dying” because of Christians who read and believe in their Bible?

    Hmm.. lots of pro vs.anti Christianity in these comments. The main issue is as an anti-bullying presentation being focused solely on bullying Christians. It does not matter who Savage decided to get down on, Making fun of someone’s beliefs, for any reason, is bullying.

    Nothing was said about violent bullies who intimidate and destroy lives, sometimes to the point of suicide. Nothing was said of the cliques that ridicule those that don’t belong. Nothing was said of those who always intimidate those that are not as smart or good looking or athletic or for whatever reason is decided they don’t make the cut. Besides all that, I did not believe that schools were a place to promote or denigrate any religions.

    What really troubled me in this video was the cheering as Savage continued to ridicule those students who disagreed with him. Those who decided not to listen to their religion being torn apart. (bullying?) Were the Christian students going around the school bashing gays and discriminating against them? Were they the bullies that needed to be shamed? I think not. I think it is all those that went along with this that were the bullies and deserve to feel shame.

    The promotion of atheism and the fight against spirituality being taught in the schools today, falls right in with the Marxist anti-individual rights that our children are being indoctrinated with. Soon it will not just be anti-religion. They will tear down anything they do not agree with.

    You don’t understand why God did it to begin with my guess is that it was done because God knew that they would not give it up. He did the same thing for divorce he found the practice of divorce sickening but yet he put it in the law as legal. In fact Jesus said this about divorce Mathew 5: #31-32 it has been said anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce. But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who marries the divorced woman commits adultery”
    Now he also explained somewhere else the only reason why God aloud divorce was because we are childish compared to God and that why he illegalized it. Slavery is another one of those things that he did not really liked but yet was aloud I mean why he would command us to love our enemy and our neighbor as ourselves. Oh and one more thing that passage he talked about in first Timothy is a bold face lie it was not instructions for a slave owner it was for the slaves themselves. I wished you left winger actually read our holy book and learned our customs before you started criticizing us.

    Christians are told that they should accept everything in the Bible and not add or take away. Dan Savage does exactly that in my opnion by not explaining the Bible correctly to people who may not have a knowledge of what it says. He takes certain verses and uses them for his purpose. He never even mentions that those laws were done away with, with the ressurection of Jesus. Christians do not live by the Old Law because part of the reason Jesus had to be crucified was so that God alone becomes the center of the religion, not practises or traditions.

    I am PROUD of the students who had the courage to stand up and leave because this speaker offended them.  He was SUPPOSED to be the adult in the room, and because he was using his position to BULLY students (isn’t THAT ironic?), they did exactly what they should have done.  In fact, where was the administration representatives who ALLOWED this to happen to their students?  WHY didn’t someone STOP this man from trying to degrade a portion of their student body?  Where are the outraged parents who should be at the school screaming their lungs out that the school permitted another adult to mentally abuse these students?  They should ALL be fired!!!

    If the shoe had been on the other foot, and the speaker had stood up there railing against the gay students, singling them out to criticize and calling them names, there would have been h*ll to pay from the left.   So WHERE is their outrage in this matter?  There isn’t any because they condone what he said not only about the Bible but the name calling as well. 

    So I say these students are indeed courageous and represent our hope for America’s future – the new leaders of this country.  They KNOW what they believe in, they KNOW they don’t have to sit quietly and take it like students did even five years ago, and they KNOW there are millions of Americans who feel the same way they do who are giving them a “thumbs up!”

    God Bless these students – their parents should be so proud that their buttons are popping off their shirts!!  Glen is right . . . . God’s guidance and goodness indeed abounds in the most surprising places!

    From a historian point of view I will say this, Slavery then WAS NOT like slavery was in the United States.  Slaves then were often prisoners of war that were forced into labor and did amazing things! Like building the Pyrimids of Giza. Also, Slaves that were not prisoners of war most likely sold themselves into slavery!! They did this to provide for their families, or maybe they didn’t have a family or a home and slavery was the only way to ensure they had food and shelter.  Look at facts and history before you go off talking and 99% of the time are later proven WRONG….btw, you are only proving that Christianity is right because in the Bible it clearly states that people (i.e. YOU) are SUPPOSED to hate Christianity!! Jesus said to his disicples, ” The world hates you, but remember that it hated me first!”  So thank you JeffGrubb for proving that my religion is correct.

    I find it amusing that those who scream the loudest about God’s shortcomings don’t really know a single thing about him!!!  Here is a little tidbit you might want to consider:  He LOVES you not matter what, and it is up to YOU whether you enter the gates of Heaven or not!!  Many a person has defied him to the bitter end only to submit when the chips are down because it is easier to believe in life after death through Jesus than to believe that this is . . .  “IT” !!!!!!

    “The Christian god was once not against slavery.” . . . . “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”  God doesn’t go around with a whip and “shape us up” if we chose not to follow his word.  He just patiently waits for us to come to our senses, providing gentle nudges along the line.  Apparently you are going to be more difficult and he may really have his work cut out for him, but don’t worry, he won’t give up on you EVEN if you give up on yourself!

    It is ultimately YOUR choice:  no one I know is FORCING you to believe in God.  But in reverse, you do not seem to allow for the same measure of respect to others:  you want to force us to NOT believe in God.  Whether I believe in God or not has absolutely nothing to do with you.

    Consider this: these students did not protest by yelling or throw objects at the speaker.  No, they chose the stand up and quietly walk out while the speaker made rude comments and called them names all the way out the door.  Is there a law somewhere that says you must sit and endure such intimidation?  If the speaker had made fun of non-believers and called them names, would you have sat there or quietly walked out or would you have screamed, yelled and thrown something at the offender?

    We will see if the “Occupy” groups will be so respectful in the days to come!!!  Good Luck, Jeff.  God is watching!

    But they did handle the criticism.  They were not in a forum where they could speak out their disagreements.  It would have been the height of rudeness and it would have likely gotten them kicked out anyway.  They handled the criticism by leaving quietly.  But did you notice they- these Christians- attended an anti-bullying seminar held by a gay man in the first place?  Did their purported “wrong” bible have them bullying him or treating him with disrespect?  No.  He treated them with disrespect, resulting in their quietly leaving.  It did end up being somewhat disruptive, but that was due to the large numbers of people leaving.  If only the liberals would respond so politely when they disagree with a speaker…

    Grant, I think you misunderstood some of my post – I understand very well what grace means and especially the grace of God – which is why I spoke of man’s works – but I don’t think you understood fully and I don’t want to go there again.  And as far as believing in Jesus Christ – Jesus said that no man will come to Father but by me.  I think that is pretty clear – there are other passages that also back this up. 

    There is a sense in which God loves everyone in the whole world (John 3:16; 1 John 2:2; Romans 5:8). This love in not conditional—it is based only on the fact that God is a God of love (1 John 4:8, 16). God’s love for all of mankind results in the fact that God shows His mercy by not immediately punishing people for their sins (Romans 3:23; 6:23). God’s love for the world is manifested in the fact that He gives people the opportunity to repent (2 Peter 3:9). However, God’s love for the world does not mean He will ignore sin. God is also a God of justice (2 Thessalonians 1:6). Sin cannot go unpunished forever (Romans 3:25-26).The most loving act of eternity is described in Romans 5:8; “But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Anyone who ignores God’s love, who rejects Christ as Savior, who denies the Savior who bought him (2 Peter 2:1) will be subject to God’s wrath for eternity (Romans 1:18), not His love (Romans 6:23). God loves everyone unconditionally in that He shows mercy to everyone by not destroying them immediately because of sin. At the same time, God only has “covenant love” for those who place their faith in Jesus Christ for salvation (John 3:36). Only those who believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior will experience God’s love for eternity.Does God love everyone? Yes. Does God love Christians more than He loves non-Christians? No. Does God love Christians to a different extent than He loves non-Christians? Yes. God loves everyone equally in that He is merciful to all. God only loves Christians in that only Christians have His eternal grace and mercy and the promise of His forever love in heaven. The unconditional love God has for everyone should bring us to faith in Him, receiving in thankfulness the great conditional love He grants all those who receive Jesus Christ as Savior.

    I don’t believe that living what we talk is “pushing” the matter on anyone.  If believing that homosexual living is a sin and we choose not to live in this matter, that in no way is “pushing” it on anyone.  The bible states this in several passages and as believer in God’s word, then this is how we will live.  Keeping in mind that no one is perfect and that we make mistakes, but it is a daily “fight” that we go through in life and it isn’t going to get any easier. 
    God’s word says that the testing of our faith developes perseverance so that we may be complete not lacking anything.  So kuddos to those who walked out, God walked out with you!

    Jesus taught us that there would always be men and women like this man, hearts of hate and bitterness, who would put people down for their beliefs. I wouldn’t want to be him when he has his day of judgment.  Jesus spoke about how we should live our lives and avoid the heart ache or sinful garbage we would have to carry around forever, but with forgiveness that burden will be lifted. Even this man can be forgiven, but he should not have been allowed to speak at a high school setting like this. He wanted this kind of reaction and he got it. He made fun of those students who stood up for their beliefs and higher moral  standards than this man happens to have. Those young people represent the “best of our country” because they refused to listen to this man’s hate and anti-Christianity or faith in a power beyond ourselves. I don’t know any atheists hiding in a fox-hole or super war heroes. We don’t need anymore bullies in the schools. Too many administrators are allowing these kinds of people into the schools and yet, those who have much higher moral standards and promote unity and freedom of religion/speech are excluded from the schools. Positive role models need to come back and talk with the students about Educational Opportunities like sciences, math, tech. Stop the bullies and those who want to strip American of her traditions, beliefs and traditional values for the ANTI-GOD, Anti-American kind of people like Obama and his administration. If not for this group of people, I don’t think the schools would have allowed so many of their kind in the door. Schools should be a learning place, not a political platform for Liberals.

    To Glenn Beck (and I do hope you actually read this):

     

    I do enjoy your shows and your rants from time to time and
    occasionally you hit on an issue that needs to be talked about and I do pay
    attention.  But on this point with Dan
    Savage, you are way out of your league and way off base.

     

    It is very sad this event is even a talking point.  It is funny how both the left and the right
    accuse each other of sensationalizing events and things that happen in this
    world in order to push their own agenda … all the while absolutely denying
    the simple fact they are doing the same exact thing they accuse others of. 

     

    I watched the video and saw absolutely no attacks and he
    certainly did not call any ‘student’ a pansy-ass … he called the
    “reaction” of the students walking out “pansy-ass”.  Was he criticizing religion? Yes.  What he a bit harsh about it?  Yes.  Did he need to say ‘pansy-ass’? No.  Does religion deserve to be criticized?  Looking at the state of things all over the
    world with religious bias, holy wars, and everyone destroying each other over
    who’s imaginary friend is better …  I
    would have to say YES, all religion absolutely deserves to be criticized.  Does the topic deserve to be debated from
    both points of view? Yes. 

     

    How hypocritical irresponsible can you possibly be to even
    “try” to report on this?  The
    fact that you can get on TV and radio and criticize scumbags like Jackson and
    Sharpton (rightfully so I might add) for demonizing Zimmerman and a few weeks
    later, go on your own show and demonize Dan Savage is absolutely despicable and
    you should be ashamed.  I honestly do not
    know how you sleep at night sometimes. 
    You are doing the same thing you accuse the left of and because it is
    making you of money and fuels the engine of hatred, you continue to perpetuate
    your fear mongering extreme radical right message rather than just doing the
    right and reasonable thing and taking the high ground.  You CANNOT take the high ground when you
    continue to walk in the sewers with the rest of the scum on this planet.

     

    Glenn, at one point you stated that this was an example of indoctrination!
    WHAT? Are you kidding me? Do you even know what indoctrination means and how it
    is applied?  Surely ‘Glenn Beck’ knows
    since he was promoting all the documentaries on the Islamic threat showing how
    young children, from the time of birth are raised in that faith, a faith they
    have no choice in.   Hmmm, wait a minute;
    Christian’s do the same thing!  They raise
    their kids in Sunday school and Wednesday night sermons in a faith they have no
    choice in and then have their children go out into to the world to recruit
    others to their faith and eventually raise their own children the same way…
    hmmm!  Me thinks indoctrination!  Go back a few hundred years and the Puritans
    where burning people at the stakes accusing them of witchcraft … but
    Christians do not like to talk about that either!  Stating PURE FACT and CONTRADICTION taken
    from the very text of the book the religious profess their faith in, is NOT
    indoctrination, it is enlightenment. When people choose to ignore those facts,
    that is not faith it is blind ignorance. 
    Religion is the blindfold of ignorance that is destroying this great
    country and so many others from within.

     

    Dan Savage’s message was, like I said, a bit harsh but
    absolutely nothing inaccurate in his message and certainly nothing he should apologize
    for.  He simply pointed out the one thing
    the religious right hates most … Facts, and the Truth!  And for that we need to make a spectacle of
    him?  The worst part is that you are
    accusing him of attacking religion (there was no attack … he was stating
    facts) while at the same time you are able to attack him and his non-belief in
    the bible.  That takes skill and a level
    of hypocrisy that that I believe only you could accomplish.  But keep going Glenn, if you try hard enough
    you may even be able to incite good people to do very bad things as religion
    has done throughout history (just like Jackson and Sharpton have done with the
    shooting in Florida).  Since I am now
    hearing other morning radio personalities try to cash in on the rhetoric, I
    expect we will have to read in the paper somewhere that an innocent kid will be
    beaten or killed for nothing more than being an atheist.  Will you report on that if it happens?  Will you criticize your ‘Christian brethren’
    if it happens?  Will you even make an
    effort to see if your message is inciting hatred?  Of course you won’t because you never seem to
    look at the consequences of your own actions and the things you say… at least
    from what I have seen thus far.

     

    Look, I grew up in the church and though my ‘own’ life
    experiences have become atheist in my beliefs. 
    I am not radical by no means but I am an Atheist, gun loving, freedom
    fighting, 1st and second amendment advocate, Proud Veteran of the US ARMY,
    pro-choice, and could care less if two gay guys/gals want to get married!  Despite all that, I am still conservative and
    vote republican.  Bottom line is this …
    The conservatives to not OWN religion and righteousness no more than the
    Liberals OWN atheism – that is just ridiculous and yet a message you continue
    to perpetuate.  A-Theism, meaning ‘without
    theistic believes’, is abundant across both party lines and accounts for at
    least 20% of the USA population – and this is just the people that admit to
    being atheist (there are plenty of atheists in church pews).  We are no different that anyone else as we
    just believe in 1 fewer god that you do! 
    What truly separates us is that we are not trying to recruit everyone in
    our path through fear of eternal damnation. 
    You may try to say that Dan Savage was trying to recruit those poor
    innocent students to atheism based solely on the brief sound bite you are letting
    us see but that would be BS and you know it. 
    If you doubt it try showing the ENTIRE un-manipulated presentation, if
    you have the courage, as I am 100% positive the context of his message was not
    taken fully into account.  What atheists
    in general are tired of, is having religion shoved down our collective throats
    at every given opportunity by the so called champions of the Conservative Right
    as if it is some sort of litmus test to being conservative or even a ‘valid’
    human being.  You cannot claim to be the
    victim, you just can’t!  I have news for
    you, speaking as a conservative atheist, Religion and belief in a god is not a requirement
    to be a member of your club!

     

    Dan Savages point is that people tend to not want to hear
    the truth or even accept it despite it being right in front of them to
    see.  In my opinion the reaction of
    students walking out was ‘pansy-ass’ … they should have stayed and opened up
    the discussion. Did he need to use that language?  No he did not! (I am lock-step with you on
    that point).  Does Dan Savage deserve to
    have reasonable people, as Glenn Beck professes to be one of, understand what
    he was trying to say (just as you demand so often whenever a conservative is
    attacked for something they say … think Ted Nugent)?  Yes he absolutely deserves that same consideration!  Does he deserve to be demonized by the all
    mighty Glenn Beck?  No, I do not think
    so.

     

    Let’s pick our battles and arguments on topics that really
    matter and get back to being focused on this country and getting Obama out of
    office.  No Religion is required for
    that, just common sense!

     Thank you, first of all, everyone for the wonderful, very constructive conversations. This, to me, is what Christianity is truly about.
    In response to your verses, Betty, the distinction must be made between children and dead alien sinners. In most of the verses you pointed out there are the infamous words that most people consider to be an “all inclusive” word. The words “us” and “we” and “our” are not words that include the entire world of humans from beginning to end. These words are those of God’s children (His elect). An example of such a verse is Romans 5:8: “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” The Bible was not given as an instruction book on how man can save the world-at-large. The saving is done alone by God himself. The Bible is given to God’s children as way to walk in God’s way every day. People like Dan Savage are not going to understand because they haven’t been given the ability to understand. 1 Corinthians 2:14 says, “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” Unless you have received (and by received I mean have been given, not take at your own pleasure) the “gift of God”, you cannot understand the instruction of God. Now, the “gift of God”, as most people understand it, must be received. This is simply a way that man has to look at it because that’s all he understands. As I’ve heard most people explain it, it’s like a birthday gift or a Christmas gift. You have to accept it. God’s gift is not like a gift from someone you know. To say that we can turn down a gift from God is to say that we are stronger than God, thus dethroning him and placing ourselves in his stead. Jesus’ crucifixion was not a way to offer salvation to the whole world. It was an offering to God himself to appease his wrath toward man. Just as they did in the Old Testament by offering the firstborn animals to sacrifice, Jesus was offered up as a final sacrifice as a way to satisfy His own wrath to an “untoward” generation, just as he did with Sodom and Gomorrah. When it says “the world” in most of these verses, like John 3:16, He is talking to the world of His elect. In Jesus’ prayer in the garden in John 17, Jesus says, “I pray for them (the children). I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are yours.” The word “world” in the Bible has different meanings depending on the context in which is was written. All I was merely trying to point out is that there is a “world” full of people, like Dan Savage, who are not going to understand how God works. Their only reaction is going to be to mock God’s children and the Bible, just like they were persecuted in Jesus’ day and since the beginning of time. All we can do is be steadfast in the faith and pray that God will show His mercy to those he sees fit.
    One last thing I would like to say is God does hate. He proves that in Romans 9:13. If you trace that verse to it’s origin,  Malachi 1:2-3, God goes on to say that not only did He hate Esau but “laid waste his mountains and his heritage for the jackals of the wilderness.” It is true. God is love. Especially those that know his love. But the Bible never says that God is love and only love. God is a wrathful and vengeful God. And as I’ve heard most people say, “Well, he didn’t really hate Esau.” You either have to take God at His entire word or not at all. I’ve also heard people say, “He did hate Esau, but he doesn’t hate anyone else.” Someone is going to have to explain to me how Esau is the only person in the existence of the world that God has hated.
    Thank you again for the wonderful words and input.

    If Christ, God in the flesh, could allow his flesh to be ripped from his bones, to be spit upon, beaten, hung on a cross and crucified…all the while forgiving and praying for the very people that did this to him, I better be able to find it in my heart to forgive and pray for this person that would stand in front of a room full of young students calling the Holy Bible bull shit.

    He, like most people that use his line of reasoning, don’t understand the historical references to slavery at all. They certainly don’t understand the new covenant of Grace, and therefore always point back to Levitical law and legalism to make their case. They think of it as racial slave trading, like we had in Europe, Africa, early America, current sex slave trade, etc. You have to have context and historical understanding to discuss this topic correctly, and understand what it meant to be a “slave”.  Slave trading is condemned in the Bible. At the time Paul wrote the letter to the Romans, many experts agree that there were probably more “slaves” living in Rome than free men. It was a fact of life. Paul wasn’t given the task to end it, but to help people know how to relate to each other, whatever their position in life, through Christ.

     Lord, please open Mr. Savages eyes to understanding so that he may stop his hate crusade against you, and become a positive force for your will, instead of leading our children into the deception that it’s OK to sin. I know that your grace and power have no limitations, and that as surely as You reached me and saved me, You can also reach him. Lord, I ask you to bless him and help him find the only peace, through you, that can put out the flames of his hatred.  Amen.

    This young man is so angry and Christ, Christians and the Bible are a convenient target. Tomorrow the target will be yet something else he is ignorant of.  
    He is misguided, ill informed, ignorant and therefore like every other bigot who attacks and lashes out in an effort to assign blame rather than admit his own lack of understanding and tolerance. Tolerance is only practiced when it is politically correct in our “Brave New World”.Sounds like a song I heard sung by comedian Steve Martin entitled, Granny’s song. There’s a line about “criticizing things you don’t know about”. This is a perfect example.

    There are many ages through our history as fallen sinful beings (no, your great great grandad wasn’t an amoeba). God never intended for Jewish legalism to apply to post crucifiction gentiles, as an example. The Bible is clear that he doesn’t even intend for ancient Jewish legalism to even apply to Jews after his ultimate sacrifice was paid (work of the cross).  Yes, we should treat one part of the Bible the same as other parts. We should treat them as truth. But we shouldn’t treat them as if all subjects apply to all people, through all time. That would be ignorant, as the Bible is broken into many parts, that were meant to apply to certain people at certain times. If you took time to study the Bible, you would see how extremely clear this is made throughout. Yes, we all deserve to die. But Christ paid that debt for us, so that we may have life instead. If only we believe in him. This should be celebrated for the good news it is. 

    I don’t have an incredibly thin skin. I do choose to live in truth. Part of that truth is that as Christians we will be persecuted and mocked, as Christ pointed out during His earthly ministry, and in end times prophecy. All over the world, Christians are being beaten, murdered, tortured and jailed, right now as I type. For 300+ years after His earthly ministry, the romans fed Christians to the lions in stadiums full of tens of thousands of people. For entertainment. They were dismembered and burned alive as lamp fuel for chariot races. In almost every case, they could have saved themselves by denouncing Christ. Few did. Almost all of Christs original followers, including Paul, were martyred in his names sake. Doesn’t sound thin skinned to me!

    I have been asking the same question for years. Why don’t atheists go after muslims, budists, or hindus with such zeal and hatred as they do Christians? I don’t hear them comparing krishna to santa clause or alah to the easter bunny. I think I have the correct answer now.   Satan doesn’t need an angry army to mock and ridicule false religions. He already has those souls locked up. So, all his efforts are spent trying to separate believers from the one true God, through methods such as those displayed  in the above video.  We need to simply cling to the truth, seek the face of God, and do our best to be that city on the hill and light to the world. What the world choses to do with it is between them and the Lord.  We just need to love and pray for them.

    Solomon was on top of this thousands of years ago..when being inspired by God to write, “An unjust man is an abominatiown to the righteous, and he who is upright in the way is an abomination to the wicked”. (Proverbs 29:27) Anytime, anyone pulls out scriptures out of context and seeks to make an issue of the one point rather than taking whats written in the whole content seeks to make a name for themselves-rather than the truth.

     You said all human beings is going to be judged, My question is who will do the judging? and what is he going to judge us by? if there is no law, there can be no penalty. you cant charge a person for speeding if there is no law stating the there is a speed limit. so a person can not be found guilty in court of law for speeding unless the law was written before he committed the act. There for if what you said is true and i believe it is, then who ever this person is that’s going to do the judging. the only way he can be just and honest he would have to have a written law on record before the act was committed to just us by. there is no sin and no penalty for sin if there is no law that says it is sin. So there must be a book given to the human race first for a guide to go by, then that same book must be used to judge the human race by. not another book but, the same book. That’s the final exam, like we have in school, the teacher gives us the final exam from the same book we started the school year with. SO THE JUDGE BOOK OF LAWS MUST BE HERE ON EARTH SOMEWHERE.

     There is a story told about George Bernard Shaw who was approached by an atheist who was trying to start his own religion and the atheist didn’t understand why he couldn’t get the millions joining his religion that Christianity had.  Shaw reportedly an atheist, told him “Jesus died to start Christianity. I suggest you do no less”.
    The central fact of Christianity is the death on the cross of Jesus to pay for the sins of the world and the Resurrection to bring salvation. This is central and essential to Christianity. NO other religion has any such claim, any such sublime and awesome central tenet. That is why Christianity (and Judaism for that matter, which is the vehicle by which knowledge of God and the Resurrection were foretold) is the main target of disbelievers.

    Here’s something else to think about. If this had been a conservative (although we all know that a conservative being asked to speak at a public school is about as likely as the princess and the pea being an accurate historical account) and he mentioned the Bible and started quoting Bible verses, every liberal in the United States would achieve new, never-before-seen histrionics about “separation of church and state”.  Since those words are never used in the Constitution, there is a constant battle over the “intent” of the Founders.  In this case, though, there should be absolutely no argument because this bozo is speaking at a state funded high school, and he is attacking religion.  While this does not surprise me, the actual text of the first amendment reads Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.  This means that government has no right to hire someone to come into the school and attack the Bible or any other religious text, practice, etc.  Yet, this moron states that the reason it’s okay for him to do this is that he has “…a right to defend myself.” This assembly was probably mandatory.  No classes were held during the assembly and there would have been intense school mandated pressure to attend.  Not a single student attacked him, yet, he has the right to defend himself, including calling them “pansy asses”. By his reasoning, minor children are his enemy and whatever he deems necessary in order to “defend” himself is acceptable. But would he extend the same right to those students?  They were not standing in front of a large group of captive teenagers with their own bully pulpit in which they could force him to listen to them while they called him a “fag”, “princess”, “twinkletoes”, etc.  No, that would be HATE and worthy of expulsion from school, public humiliation and excoriation, and required apologies prior to readmittance. This is the realm of the liberal. And anyone who was forced into attendance, who did not disrupt his tirade in any way, did not call him names, did not rush the stage to seize the microphone, simply left respectfully…according to his way of thinking, they were attacking him.  He’s very “sorry” that they are pansy asses, but he has a right to defend himself against this obviously hateful group of teens who were not given a voice. If they had chosen to be there, if they had been disrespectful, if they had “crashed” the lecture, the actions of the speaker might have been justifiable.  And would the school give equal time to religion to defend itself against the tirade?  We all know the answer, but the “legal” reasoning would be “separation of church and state”.  In other words, in order to refute his quotation of Bible verses, they would have to quote Bible verses, thus, under the statutes of the law, they could not be allowed to exercise their freedom of speech because it might offend him and the school legally can’t allow this.  But, if it is the intent of the speaker to lambast believers with quotation of the Bible, it’s A-OK.  Oh, and by the way, since, for liberals, there is no such thing as liberal hypocrisy, there is no need to examine the actions of such a person and hold him accountable to the same standard.  Although I believe that he is a FANTASTIC speaker.  After all, I could not possibly have come up with a better object lesson in bullying. I wonder what would have happened if even one of those students had called him a name in reply to him calling them pansy asses. Under the law, that student would have been expelled.  In fact, under the current insanity infecting the United States legal establishment, those students could be tried as adults in federal court for HATE CRIMES.  And THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is what we call TOLERANCE.  To a liberal, tolerance means attacking, killing, stamping out, eradicating, etc, etc, etc, anyone who does not believe EXACTLY the same as they do.  Please, folks, just vote Democrat…It’s SO much easier than thinking.

    You definition of anti-theist as someone who opposes the irrationality of theists is a bit strange. Did you come up with that all by your little self? Which theists are irrational? Bonhoffer,? He believed the Bible and Christianity was true, wrote some theological texts and opposed Hitler and Nazism and died for his beliefs. Are you willing to die for “anti-theism”?
    You assume anyone who believes in God and Christianity and the Bible is irrational.  Do you assume that Muslims are irrational? How about Buddhists, Hindus?( I might agree that Muslims are irrational, but not because they believe in god, but because the god they believe, the Moon god, tells them to murder everyone who isn’t Muslim and that they are the ultimate bigots. )
    What gives Jeff? What is your proof that you are rational and Christians are not?
    If you are so rational , why did you only have a response of “Hahahahaha” to me when I very rationally explained I was tolerant of homosexuality, but that tolerance is NOT approval and that I would insist that tolerance not be redefined to be approval and that tolerance would not extend to granting of special or additional rights based on the choices and sexuality of homosexuals.
    You are the bigot, against Christians, and a reverse bigot by insisting that not granting special additional “rights” to homosexuals is bigotry and discrimination. As human beings they have the same rights as any one else. Their lifestyle choices don’t change that.

    A friend of mine had been in Nam 20 yrs before and when we were discussing Christianity, he said that he had been shot down and was surrounded by enemy fire,” there was no way out. I prayed and prayed and God didn’t save me”. I asked him, if there was no way out, how did he get out and why was he here now, if God didn’t answer his prayers? Did he expect to be translated? There was dead silence for 5 minutes, when he meekly said “I guess God did answer my prayers”

No one said anything about that, I have decided that christians are discriminated against because we do not take a stand,.MTV hired this guy to have influence over our young people, this person who is full of hate.  Can you imagine the impact we would have if all Christians stopped using products that are associated with companies that advertise with MTV. If we blocked MTV and didn’t allow it in our homes. What if we took our kids out of public schools because they allow bullying of Christians and conservatives.

     Not even you really believes that idiocy. You never hear of CHRISTIANS stoning because:  Jesus said “let he who is without sin, cast the first stone” so, NO, I am not under God’s orders to stone anyone for anything. No Christian or even Jew is under any such law.
     BTW, have you ever violated a law, one that you, as a citizen (you are a citizen arn’t you?) are obligated to obey and you did NOT get punished by what the law calls for? Why do you think that just because a law is in the code and there is a punishment for breaking that law, that invariably that law has to be obeyed or punishment is REQUIRED to be meted out? (ie stoning?) Laws exist, punishment is set after trial and God’s mercy prevails. You are so illogical, irrelevant and asinine.
    A little enlightenment: : The stoning to death has been done by Muslims, recently. They also
    beheaded a woman and a man on allegations of adultery. They hang and/or
    castrate homosexuals.

    The problem, like I said in my earlier post is that you and many others have entirely missed the context of the message Dan Savage was presenting. Instead you immediately jump on the “How Dare He” bandwagon blindly (much like you do with your faith) without ever really examining the evidence and asking the tough questions. I really do wish the public video would have shown the entire speech and not just the part that is sure to get every religious person riled up to the point they want to string him up like the Muslims would do (paraphrasing another post). Context is everything!

    The posts in this thread are the best example of what blind faith and inexcusable ignorance of what the text in the Bible actually states leads people as a society to do. I would like you to read each and every post in this thread and then step back as a human, no religion, and just soak it all in. I find more hatred from the “”Christian”” responses than anything Dan said in his video. Some of the responses I have read could even be considered threatening but will anyone say something about that?

    Having been on both sides of the religious fence, it still amazes me that people can ignore huge sections of the book and pick out only the parts that suit their agenda. In that regard I agree with Dan Savage entirely and yes it is BS. It is almost like the sheeple are hypnotized and those pages of the book are just blank filler…God didnt really mean that, right! While at the same time claiming your God is infalliable and perfect you are able to ignore huge portions of your faith. Hypocricy! I will say one thing for the Muslim faith – they follow every letter written in their text are are more devout in their religion than any so called Christian! Until you are ready to walk the walk of your chosen faith, you really do not have any legitimate pulpit to stand on. If you are a true beleiver, then the prison sentence the courts will impose on you for following what the ‘good book’ tells you to do should not bother you much.

    This is was an anti-bullying speech specifically aimed at gay bashing and people using the bible as a defense for that behavior. If you want to be offended at anything, it is not Dan Savage that you targeting. You may not like the way he said it but that does not make it any less factual or true.

    You are missing so much. Your poverty of education and spirit are so sad, if you believe science (you are confusing science and technology) over the Bible.
    I can do without the technology of computers, cars, cell phones, but they do make life a little easier and computers at least save paper and time. I hardly ever use my cell phone or my landline, and drive maybe 6 miles a week, prefering to walk or do without. And yes, some scientists have reluctantly  allowed for the possibility of God, but we would have no intellectual knowledge of God without Judaism and the prophesied Messiah, we would have no salvation without Jesus’ death and Resurrection and no knowledge of it without written history and the eyewitness accounts in the New Testament.  Not all “organized religions” are created equal. Christianity has the Resurrection central and necessary to it. No other “religion” has anything even remotely like it. Science is an afterthought, a poor stepchild of philosophy and epistemology, nothing to worship or pay much attention to. Religion however, if it promotes virtue and morality and education as a result of a thorough knowledge of God and Jesus and the Resurrection through the Bible, is much to be desired, at least the Founders of our country thought so and expressed in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Federalist papers and many letters and writings, not to mention the 1st amendment, which was intended to keep the state out of religion, not religion out of the state. Religion (by which they meant the Judeo-Christian religions as is clear from the writings) was to be encouraged as necessary to virtue and morality to ensure liberty for all. ( Islam, however, was NOT to be encouraged; in fact, we as a new nation, fought a war against the Mosselmen, who had terrorized our navy and shipping, kidnapping/castrating and/or killing thousands of our sailors for not being Muslim. Conversion or die, still the central premise of Islam. We were warned over 200 yrs ago. And NO JEFF, this is not bigotry, I am relating facts)

     You assume too much. Progressives(then liberals now back to progressives) have a history of oppression and attack. Woodrow Wilson, a progressive (democrat) was a bigot and hated blacks. Before him, the executive branch of the government was integrated. He stopped that, and expelled all blacks from the executive branch and started a campaign against integration. Margaret Sanger was a progressive and a eugenicist and promoted birth control, not to help women, but to control “undesireables” which to her meant anyone not Aryan. The Nazis adopted her Aryan supremecist eugenics program. She went on to start the “Black project”. She would have included homosexuals, but they weren’t breeding, so her program wouldn’t work on them.  Franklin Roosevelt was no better and in some ways worse. (not allowing the black opera singer to sing My Country Tis of Thee at the White House)  Savage has no moral base, guide or compass but he is full of hatred and misrepresentation. And you call that a moralistic attack? and accuse conservatives of doing it most of the time? Name 3 as bad as what the above progressives did (WW, FDR, MS…..)

    Dan Savage is clearly an opportunist for gay rights.  Was he bullying those Christian kids?  Sure, Christians are dangerous.  Muslims believe their messiah will arrive when the world reaches a certain state of chaos.  So they do what they can to help the chaos along.  Christians, believing their Messiah will return when the world reaches a certain level of chaos, may not actively push the chaotic movement, but they sure won’t stop it.

    I am pretty sure you are capable of using your computer because, after all, you are here sharing your wealth of knowledge.  But here’s a news flash for you:  you need to use your computer to look up the definition of bullying!!!!!

    Shucks, I KNOW that might be a stretch for you so here it is: 
    Bullying is a form of aggressive behavior
    manifested by the use of force or coercion to affect others,
    particularly when the behavior is habitual and involves an imbalance of
    power. It can include verbal harassment, physical assault or coercion and may be directed repeatedly towards particular victims, perhaps on grounds of race, religion, gender, sexuality, or ability.[2][3]
    The “imbalance of power” may be social power and/or physical power. The
    victim of bullying is sometimes referred to as a “target”.

    Now NOWHERE does it say that bullying only applies to individuals ONLY!!!!  So here’s your English lesson for the day . . . put it to good use!!!

     Dan Savage, For you sir my heart aches. Eternity in a lake of fire is horrible. Even worse is facing eternity seperated from God your creator. God never changes and is a God of judgement. God judged Sodom in the days of Abraham and God will judge Sodom today. The same! Sodom was totally destroyed. Dan Savage; you do not want to be on the receiving end of the wrath of an angry creator and the day of judgement is coming soon. That is no bullshit.

    It is amazing to me that you KNOW what we missed – do YOU have ESP or something???  You KNOW some of the things he said were WRONG but yet you justify what he said . . . does THAT make sense to you?  Maybe suffering massive abuse effects one to an extreme, but how can YOU excuse anyone when they are abusing someone else?  Apparently you think we are too stupid to know when someone is using a position of power to mete out punishment for the supposed wrongs of that person’s life!  Dan Savage is a very angry man – a wolf in sheep’s clothing – who blames all of his problems on his upbringing, the Bible, the non-gays, anyone who does not share the same lifestyle and beliefs or anything else he can think of!!  How sick is THAT???  Actually to me he came off sounding like a raving madman who has lost a couple of key cogs in the old wheelhouse!  Where is his credibility when he resorts to EXACTLY that which he is supposed to decry?

    We do NOT care whether you believe in the Bible or not; we do not CARE if you believe in God or his Son, or even Satan, or not; we do not CARE if you want to have an “alternate” lifestyle, we do not CARE if you are an athiest or not; quite frankly we don CARE what you are or what you believe.  THOSE are YOUR choices to make, and the consequences that go along with those same choices will be yours and yours alone.

    Here’s the message you need to understand:  what I am and what I believe about ANYTHING is none of your D*MN business just as what you are and what you believe does NOT matter to me.  You and I are equal in one respect:  we will be held accountable for what we believe and how we chose to lead our lives;  we will be responsible for the choices we have made.  I won’t go to h*ll (or heaven) on your behalf, and YOU certainly won’t go to heaven (or hell) for me either!

    I will not tell you what I believe the shortcomings of what your beliefs or your lifestyle are, and I EXPECT that you will give me the same courtesy.  So when we are in a public forum, I do NOT expect that you or one of your heroes will stand up as a guest speaker, under false pretenses of talking about bullying, and then proceed to make derogatory comments about what I believe or how I live my life.  Frankly, it is NONE of your business, and that, my friend, IS bullying! 

    If you or your hero chose to participate in such an despicable situation, I have two choices:  I can stay and allow you or your hero to verbally abuse me; or I can show my dislike of your abusive behavior by leaving.  It is NOT up to you to decide what MY options are, and I don’t have to justify my choices to you or anyone else!  These students were by far the most mature people in the room, and they left with no comments, no demonstrations, no bad behavior.  Dan was the supposed adult on that stage, and he lowered himself to the level of a first-class bully who should be barred from speaking at any youth event in the future.  I went to his website where he made an apology and then added WEAK excuses about what he had said!  Anytime someone gives you an apology and there is a “but” attached, that automatically negates the apology PERIOD!

    If you are or have been bullied, do whatever it is that will help you cope.  Then deal with it in the most appropriate way for you, but do NOT feel free to make me your target because you were subjected to that kind of behavior from someone else.  I am NOT your whipping boy, and I am not an easy target for you to vent your anger on.  If you want me to respect you and your values, then do NOT treat me like a pile of dog do-do because quite frankly, I might just bite you!  I have a low tolerance for abuse from anyone . . . no matter WHO they think they are!

    “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

    What an idiot.  First of all, I can’t believe that a school, a high school, would allow this BULLY to even talk to their students.  What he is encouraging these students to do is bully anyone that believes in God and the Bible.  He doesn’t promote anti-bullying, he promotes it and hate as well.  To quote one or two lines from a Bible that was written over 2000 years ago and say that is what people that believe in God actually believe is completely moronic and full of hate and disgust. If he’s going to do that, he HAS to do that for every thing ever written since the written word came to be.  I’m so sick and tired of people quoting the Bible by completely taking the true meaning away.  Shame on this school, shame on the school board for allowing this kind of hate and bullying tactics to be shoved down the throats of innocent children.  I hope parents of these kids take them to court for promoting bullying in their school system.

    Walking out of the discussion and away from the battle is what we have been doing for years.   I would like to say that we are obligated to stand our ground and speak,  but  I can see that the audio system would have drowned them out.  I’ve been shouted down and laughed at for challenging, misuse of the bible before.  That sound system is cranked up to make being drowned out absolute.  I’m also realizing that I’m not prepared to respond immediately to attacks like this.  I would have walked out too. 

        I know I’m preaching to the choir but, I’ve got to contradict this guy. #1  Jesus negated these stoning laws 2000 years ago.  #2 When St. Paul wrote about slavery it was the only form of employment that existed.  He couldn’t write about labor practices that had not been established or conceived of at the time.

    Let’s turn your COMPLETE and TOTAL irrationality on its head, than.  If, as you say, an  anti-theist is someone who stands against the irrationality of theists, than, by the very same token, a theist is someone who stands against the irrationality of anti-theists.  LOL  See how that works.  Before claiming theists are irrational, you need to first provide evidence that theists are irrational, or you prove ONLY your OWN irrationality by making a false assumption, lol.  You see, false assumptions like yours are TOTALLY irrational.

  • Anonymous

    LOL  Seriously?  You bring up hypocrisy when it is clear you don’t even know what the word means.  News flash, son.  Dan Savage, who preaches against bullying regularly, is on stage here, in front of children no less, actually BULLYING Christians.  That, my dimwitted friend, is the very definition of hypocrisy.  Dan Savage is a hypocrite.  He just proved himself to be one, and you have the audacity to call most Christians hypocrites.  At least, most Christians are brave enough to actually stand up for what they believe, which is the EXACT OPPOSITE of hypocrisy.  The Bible, in ACTUAL FACT, is NOT ok with ANY form of bigotry, as it states quite clearly, “Love thy neighbor as thyself.”  There is also the Golden Rule.  You know, the one that states, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”  These, as well as many other verses, make clear that the Bible is against ALL bigotry of ALL kinds.  We have ALL sinned and fall short of His glory.  It is true that homosexuality is a sin in God’s eyes.  Does that make them worse than us Christians?  Heck no.  We as Christians are NO better than they are because we have ALL sinned in God’s eyes and we ALL fall short of his glory.  Does the fact that homosexuality is a sin mean we as Christians hate homosexuals?  Heck no.  As the Bible also states, “Hate the sin but love the sinner.”  I may hate homosexuality, but in NO way does that mean I hate homosexuals.  I LOVE them just as I LOVE everyone else.  I pray for them just as I pray for everyone else.  Of course, anyone with as dimwitted a worldview as yours could NEVER understand that.  The LOVE shown by our God is simply too much for your pure hatred to handle.

    Evidence that theists are irrational: Believing in something that cannot be seen. For which there is no evidence. And that does not hold up to the scientific method. 

    That is the very definition of irrationality. 

  • Anonymous

    LOL WRONG. Dead wrong. Theists actually believe in something that CAN be seen for which there IS evidence. And that actually DOES hold up to the scientific method. What you just exclaimed is what makes anti-theists irrational, though. Assuming that God cannot be seen when many HAVE actually seen Him is irrational. Assuming that there is no evidence when the evidence is ALL around us and right in front of your face is irrational. Assuming that the belief in God does not hold up to the scientific method when it actually DOES is irrational. Sorry, but you are without a doubt 100% TOTALLY wrong. Come back when you actually get a clue, please.

    Please, explain how the existence of a god or gods stands up to the scientific method. 

  • Anonymous

    Please, explain how it doesn’t lol. Let me explain it for you since you don’t seem to even know what the scientific method is

    The scientific method involves the principles and procedures for the systematic pursuit of knowledge involving the recognition and formulation of a problem, the collection of data through observation and experiment, and the formulation and testing of hypotheses.

    Now, I pursue knowledge through God. I experiment with and observe God’s existence. I formulate and test hypotheses proving God’s existence. Seems to me that since that is required in the scientific method, God stands up to the scientific method.

    Your TOTAL ignorance only shows just how clearly stupid you are.

    I repeat, since people pursue the knowledge of God’s existence, since people collect data through observation and experiment proving God’s existence, and since people formulate and test hypotheses proving Gods existence, the existence of God MUST stand up to the scientific method. Since the pursuit of God is the EXACT definition of what the scientific method is, it would be TOTALLY irrational and flat out IMPOSSIBLE for the existence of God to not stand up to the scientific method. Of course, thanks for proving just how TOTALLY irrational you anti-theists are.

    News flash, son. Galileo believed in God. Copernicus believed in God. Newton believed in God. Pascal believed in God. Sir Francis Bacon, who was the one to actually establish what we consider today to be the scientific method, also believed in God. Keplar, Descartes, Boyle, Mendel and many, MANY other scientists ALL believed in the existence of God and used their own scientific studies to flat out PROVE God’s existence. Heck, Einstein, who certainly was not a Christian, even said that the belief in God is NOT contrary to the scientific method. Einstein famously remarked to a young physicist, “I want to know how God created this world, I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts, the rest are details.” Even Einstein, who didn’t believe in a personal God mind you, flat out DENIED anti-theism and recognized the TOTAL IMPOSSIBILITY of a non-created universe. He also famously “Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.” If even Einstein, who didn’t actually believe in a personal God himself but certainly didn’t deny said personal God either, said that the belief in God holds to the scientific method, than the belief in God MUST hold to the scientific method. Since Sir Francis Bacon created that very scientific method to PROVE God’s existence, the belief in God MUST hold to the scientific method.

    Will you look at that? Even the creator of today’s scientific method used said method to flat out PROVE God’s existence. If that doesn’t prove just how illogical you idiots really are, I don’t know what will, lol. As I said, try again when you actually get a clue, please. Maybe you should actually do some ACTUAL research on the actual scientific method before making the idiotic claim that the belief in God doesn’t stand up to it.

  • Anonymous

    I see that you Google’d and used the exact Merriam-Webster definition of the scientific method. And then you just put the word god in it as your evidence.

    That isn’t how this works. 

    Science is about creating verifiable and repeatable results based on observable evidence.

    I’m not making any claim. As an atheist, I’m denying the religious claim that a god exists, because the people who are putting forth this hypothesis have yet to produce enough evidence to support it. 

    Anti-theist means that I believe the people who believe in that irrationality — especially those like you who can look at the lack of evidence and say “yep, that’s good enough for me” — is harmful to the human race. 

    Also, please stop saying “lol” in all of your sentences. It seems like a nervous tick, and it makes you seem unbalanced. 

  • Anonymous

    LOL Seriously, you just proved how dimwitted you actually are. First off, though I did use Webster’s definition, I did NOT need to Google anything there. I already KNEW what I said.

    Also, that IS how it works. Science is about creating verifiable and repeatable results based on observable evidence. That’s the ONLY thing you said with any truth to it. The belief in God actually HAS verifiable and repeatable results based on observable evidence. Since you are stupid and IRRATIONALLY assume people who believe in God are irrational, it is YOU and NOT them who are irrational. There is NO lack of evidence as you IRRATIONALLY assume there is. The evidence is ALL around us. Copernicus said so. Newton said so. Galileo said so. Pascal said so. Mendel said so. Bacon said so. Thousand of famous scientists from our past said so. Heck, even Albert Einstein, who didn’t believe in a personal God himself, said so. Even many philosophers in ancient history made such claims through their own observances of how the world works, such as Aristotle, Plat, Socrates, and others. They observed the evidence and came to the conclusion that this world MUST have been created by a creator God. There is absolutely NO OTHER rational explanation. Even Einstein came to that conclusion, and he didn’t even believe in a personal God. Even Einstein said that it is flat out IMPOSSIBLE that this planet came into being any other way but through the creation of a Creator God. All this through VERIFIABLE AND REPEATABLE RESULTS BASED ON OBSERVABLE EVIDENCE, too, you know. Will you look at that? Those scientists came to the conclusion that a Creator God of some kind MUST exist because their own VERIFIABLE AND REPEATABLE RESULTS BASED ON OBSERVABLE EVIDENCE told them that a Creator God of some kind MUST exist. If a scientist who doesn’t even believe in a personal God, such as Albert Einstein, even came to that very conclusion through his own scientific method, you have NO leg to stand on in this argument. You fail on the outset simply because you have NO understanding of the scientific method whatsoever.

    In closing, it is your IRRATIONAL assumption based on an ILLOGICAL premise that God doesn’t work with the scientific method. The father of today’s scientific method, Sir Francis Bacon, begs to differ. He used that very method to prove you flat out wrong nearly 400 years ago. Look into his work. You might actually learn something. Albert Einstein, who didn’t even believe in a personal God, also begs to differ. Einstein flat out stated that the ONLY way that this universe can be in existence today is because of a Creator God. He opposed atheism of ALL kinds, stating that it is IMPOSSIBLE for the universe to be here any other way but through the creation of a Creator God. Than there’s Newton, Pascal, Galileo, Copernicus, and thousands of other scientists who used the scientific method to flat out PROVE God’s existence. They, too, beg to differ. You have NO leg to stand on here, you know. Your IRRATIONAL assumption is based on an ILLOGICAL premise. Thus, YOU are the one who is irrational. NOT the theist you IRRATIONALLY claim to be irrational.

    Now, as I’ve already stated. Try again. And next time, at least TRY to remain rational like I have. If you keep saying that God doesn’t fit with the scientific method, you prove ONLY that YOU are the irrational one here. It’s been documented by several scientists over the last 500 years that the belief in God fits quite well with the scientific method. Einstein documented it. Bacon did. On and on and on throughout the last several hundred years God has been documented using the scientific method. The claim that a belief in God is irrational because it doesn’t fit the scientific method proves that you are either irrational, stupid, or a liar. Which one are you? Are you irrational, stupid, or just a liar?

    Sir Francis Bacon, the father of today’s scientific method, used the scientific method to flat out PROVE God’s very existence. Albert Einstein, after using that same scientific method, came to the conclusion that it is flat out IMPOSSIBLE for the universe to be here if it weren’t for a Creator to create it.

    Now, Googling it might help you, but since I’ve actually already studie these ACTUAL scientists who have ACTUALLY used the scientific method to flat out PROVE the existence of a creator God, I didn’t have to Google it. I could certainly give you the links, though. Seems with your TOTAL lack of understanding of the scientific method you need some.

    Princeton, 3. 1. 1954

    Dear Mr Gutkind,

    Inspired by Brouwer’s repeated suggestion, I read a great deal in your book, and thank you very much for lending it to me … With regard to the factual attitude to life and to the human community we have a great deal in common. Your personal ideal with its striving for freedom from ego-oriented desires, for making life beautiful and noble, with an emphasis on the purely human element … unites us as having an “American Attitude.”

    Still, without Brouwer’s suggestion I would never have gotten myself to engage intensively with your book because it is written in a language inaccessible to me. The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weakness, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still purely primitive, legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for me) change this. … For me the Jewish religion like all other religions is an incarnation of the most childish superstition. And the Jewish people to whom I gladly belong … have no different quality for me than all other people. As far as my experience goes, they are also no better than other human groups, although they are protected from the worst cancers by a lack of power. Otherwise I cannot see anything “chosen” about them.

    In general I find it painful that you claim a privileged position and try to defend it by two walls of pride, an external one as a man and an internal one as a Jew. As a man you claim, so to speak, a dispensation from causality otherwise accepted, as a Jew of monotheism. But a limited causality is no longer a causality at all, as our wonderful Spinoza recognized with all incision…

    Now that I have quite openly stated our differences in intellectual convictions it is still clear to me that we are quite close to each other in essential things, i.e. in our evaluation of human behavior … I think that we would understand each other quite well if we talked about concrete things.

    With friendly thanks and best wishes,

    Yours, 

    A. Einstein

    You do realize that NONE of that supports your case, don’t you? Albert Einstein stated, and I quote word for word, verbatim, his EXACT quote here, “I want to know how God created this world, I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts, the rest are details.” I emphasize Einstein’s use of the word God there, son. According to Encyclopedia Britannica, “Firmly denying atheism, Einstein expressed a belief in “Spinoza’s God who reveals himself in the harmony of what exists.”

    Now, try to do some ACTUAL research some time, sunshine, because, again, you flat out failed at proving anything, lol.

    Some more Einstein comments disproving your TOTALLY IRRATIONAL assumption.

    When asked in one interview point blank if he believed in God, this was Einstein’s reply, “I am not an atheist. The problem involved is too vast for our limited minds. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn’t know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God. We see the universe marvelously arranged and obeying certain laws but only dimly understand these laws.”

    When a Colorado banker wrote and asked Einstein the very same question, Einstein’s reply was this, “I cannot conceive of a personal God who would directly influence the actions of individuals or would sit in judgment on creatures of his own creation. My religiosity consists of a humble admiration of the infinitely superior spirit that reveals itself in the little that we can comprehend about the knowable world. That deeply emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.” Now, that reply PROVES that though Einstein did not believe in a personal God as Christians do, he MOST CERTAINLY did believe that a supreme being of some kind created the universe.

    Here’s more on the quote used in Encyclopedia Britannica concerning Einstein’s view on God. Einstein was asked to answer the God question in 50 words or less. Here was his reply. “I believe in Spinoza’s God, who reveals himself in the lawful harmony of all that exists, but not in a God who concerns himself with the fate and the doings of mankind.” Again, though he didn’t believe in a Christian personal God, he still came to the conclusion that the universe MUST have been created by a God of some kind.

    Now, you need more proof against you. I have more. Please, as I said, your argument has NO leg to stand on. It hasn’t for the last several hundred years and still doesn’t now. Try again, and TRY to remain rational like I have.
