The Gay Debate: The Bible and Homosexuality

"Matthew Vines speaks on the theological debate regarding the Bible and the role of gay Christians in the church. Delivered at College Hill United Methodist Church in Wichita, Kansas on March 8, 2012."

What an amazing young man.

This is over an hour and everyone should watch this.

Christ is the basis of the new covenant.

Leviticus prohibits many things - none of which apply to Christians...

We are not subject to the "old law".

Christians need to throw out the "traditional interpretations" of the Bible.

Edit: Please watch the video before replying...

Edit 2: Here's his blog: http://matthewvines.tumblr.com/

The summary is this - the "traditional" interpretations of the Bible should not be applied.

That is, God's will is for everyone to be with someone - and if you believe in God, then you wouldn't want to go against God's will would you?

Christians should passionately and tenaciously embrace Gay Christians.

We should do the same to everyone.

Mathew Vines, a gay Christian, made me cry today...and that was a good thing.

Mathew Vines bears good fruit.

REALLY? An hour long and you don't care to summarize. Even I have better sh*t to do.

For those of you which try to reconcile religion with science, sexuality, abortions or even politics you have been greatly misled. Religion is fine to practice on your own, read the bible or attend Church on Sundays but don't think it's revolutionary to see Gays as regular people.

The bible is an outdated and misinterpreted form of fiction. Fast forward 2,000 years from now to when Harry Potter is the next Christ.

I honestly don't care if I get flamed for this,

I have a gay brother, and I am his number 1 supporter, along with my entire family and close friends, people who use the bible or religion to bring hate on someone for an uncontrollable thing, those are the people who should be ridiculed and hated upon.

Anybody who uses their "god" as an excuse to discriminate against other people, are the people who deserved to be hated.

Gay guys left more women for me on Davie street. I have never had a problem finding and dating women in my area. Sure I had to put up with a little homo-harassment, but it was all worth it. No competition has been great and any other guy who can't see that, well I feel bad for him.

Actually I don't really feel bad for him. Again... Less competition. :bigblush:

I like to have sex with my hand. I've been a hand lover for 14 years and it sickens me that I see prejudice all around.

Not to hijack the thread, but this probably doesn't deserve its own thread,

Google Announces Global Campaign To Legalize Gay Marriage

BY ON TOP MAGAZINE STAFF

PUBLISHED: JULY 07, 2012

Google has announced a global campaign in support of equal marriage rights for gay and lesbian couples.

The Internet giant announced its Legalize Love campaign at the Global LGBT Workplace Summit 2012, which took place in London.

The campaign launches Saturday, July 7 in Poland and Singapore. Organizers plan to expand the campaign to every country where Google has an office, focusing on countries where anti-gay sentiment runs high.

“We want our employees who are gay or lesbian or transgender to have the same experience outside the office as they do in the office,” Google's Mark Palmer-Edgecumbe is quoted by dot429.com as saying at the summit. “It is obviously a very ambitious piece of work.”

“Singapore wants to be a global financial center and world leader and we can push them on the fact that being a global center and a world leader means you have to treat all people the same, irrespective of their sexual orientation,” Palmer-Edgecumbe said of the decision to include Singapore in the campaign's initial phase.

Bob Amnnibale, an openly gay executive at Citi, applauded the effort: “The fact that Google is so virtual and its appeal is very wide and young demographically means it can help spread messaging very, very quickly.”

"Traditional interpretations" is pretty much bang on. I'd also add selective interpretation onto that.

Not religious, but doesn't the Bible say that it's acceptible to own slaves?

I don't support the gay act, but whatever.

Flame me all you want, I don't care. I won't reply to you anyways.

It's my opinion.

I find it ironic that so many people who against gays, and/or gay marriage probably have watched lesbian porn at one point
