as the kids say....smh....shaking my head......        

Every generation thinks that theirs is the most enlightened and the most advanced ever seen on planet Earth.     They're pretty much right.   Scientific and social advances keep humanity moving forward in positive ways.      Mankind keeps re-evaluating the ways things have always been done and improve upon the things that are still working, and get rid of the things that are no longer valid.       It's the way things have been since societies first started soming together.      

Then why is America moving backwards?    I know the calendar says 2015, but it feels like it's 1520.      Sure, every poll shows a clear majority of Americans agree that same-sex marriage should be legal (closing in on 60%), but apparently the will of people isn't enough for some legislators in a bunch of red states who want to make sure they don't go down without losing every battle in addition to losing the war.    They want to legalize discrimination...how nice!    They want to make it legal for business-people to be able to pick and choose who they want to do business with.     I think we went through this before....it was called 'the Jim Crow era'.     You remember that, right?      One group through another group was sub-human and used religious teachings to show that mixing between those groups was an abomination.     You remember what happened, right?   It was ruled to be unconstitutional.     Thank God.       

Well, these days, some lawmakers have decided that their consitutional rights are more valid and more important that the consititutional rights of gays and lesbians.    And they want to make it so that if you feel the same way, you can refuse to serve them.    So let me get this straight:  if you are a LGBTer, you are committing a sin.   And somehow, you've determined that this is the only sin in a whole book full of forbidden things that you've deemed important enough to single out.   So, murderers and theives are okay?    How about those who work on the Sabbath?     If you've ever committed adultry or not honored your father or mother?    How about someone of another faith because they clearly have another God before Him?    And those are the commandments...not just random rules and laws in the Old Testament.    You would think the violation of the big 10 would be more aggregious, right?    I guess not.    

What about the arguements we've heard?    What if someone went to a kosher caterer for a non-kosher event and ordered bacon-wrapped scallops?    The don't carry that item, so it's discrimination, right?     wrong.     You can't force someone to carry an item on their menu just because you want it.   Can you go to Hardees and order sea bass?   No...they don't carry it.   And besides, 'people who love pork" is not a protected class under the Consititution.      The arguements are getting sillier every day, but the politics is getting scarier.     We had a lawmakers in Wyoming who added the language to a bill to protect LGBT rights "when hell freezes over".   That was an official bill.   His constituents must be so proud.     A Texas lawmaker complained to a judge about the implimentation of same-sex marriage, obviously upset about the sanctity of marriage not being held up.    Oh, yeah, he's been married 5 times, so he's a perfect example of those vows meaning something.     And in California, public proposal is being floated to allow for the execution of anyone found to be gay or lesbian.       I thought this was America and I thought this was 2015.    

I understand you may not like the person down the block from you being in a same-sex relationship.    Your religion may frown on it   You may frown on it.   But you can't discriminate against them.     Have you EVER committed a sin?     Sure you have.    Do you think it's right for someone to discrimiate against you if you ever ate shellfish or shaved or did anything else forbidden in the Bible?    You can't pick and choose.      All sins are equal in the eyes of the Lord.     It's the eyes of some Americans that have me worried.

I believe the "I DOUBT IT" athiest call center is a recruitment tool...preying upon people who are questioning parts of their faith.  

 

They should ask their priest about it... (not some athiest volunteer who has sad, self-absorbed thoughts).

 

Then, they should make up their own mind... not be recruited to join some anti-God club for moral support.

 

Believe or not believe.  That's up to an individual.  I know misery loves company, but there's no need to recruit someone who needs clarification and support from their priest who has studied theology and history for hours and hours.

 

By the way...

 

Faith is not based on evidence so trying to prove what someone believes in does not actually exist is a futile effort.

 

Hopefully my children will never question their faith because they have all the "evidence" they need in the Holy Spirit within them.
