These kinds of posts used to frustrate me. Now, though, it's becoming clear that this side of the debate is losing, and change is inevitable. I take some comfort in that.

Also, a host of scholars don't agree with Luke Timothy Johnson, but quote mining is nothing new when it comes to this debate.

brgulker, it's only quote mining when you disagree with the position, right? Did DeYoung misrepresent Johnson in his position? No, he did not. You're just using a common Gnu tactic, similar to the 'courtier's reply' and it's equally fallacious. Nice try though.

It's sad that you would take comfort in progressing toward a sin that God give people over too. When God gives someone over, then that cannot be a good thing...

Any charity organization needs money to exist and to fulfill their mission. I believe that their accommodation of the pro-homosexual trend only reflects their quest to broaden the scope of their contributors. This is a gamble that our politicians took that seems to be paying off. Feeding starving children is a good thing at any cost.

I know of a philanthropist that amassed millions in the previous century through gambling. He left his fortune to orphans who benefit from it till this day. He might be burning in Hell along side of homosexuals, but God gave, and used his assets for greater good.

The world can change its opinion all it wants. God's word stands forever. That being said, it doesn't hurt to be tactical about this issue.

Christians aren't just against same-sex marriage. We believe sex is healthiest and best between a husband and wife because that's how God designed us. Anything that deviates from that ends up harming us. That's why we must defend the biblical view - not because we are "opposed" to people or are mean to them. We must defend it because it is God's truth that still liberates us from many of the consequences of sin.

Thanks for this. I am very interested in checking the works you plugged. I just got done commenting on this on an old bud's post that asked your posts title question, but kinda went the other way. I kinda wish had found this first.

*but his post kinda went the other way.
