And then there are the morons at Newsweek.
Next week's cover story titled "Our Mutual Joy" actually suggests the Bible argues in favor of homosexual marriage.
What Bible are these doofuses reading?I don't know about you, but I am absolutely fed up with idiocy like this.
Newsweek's Lisa Miller calls such verses "throwaway lines in a peculiar text given over to codes for living in the ancient Jewish world. ..." What kind of psychobabble is that?
Ladies and gentlemen, I am fed up with people lying about the Bible.
I'm fed up with people twisting the words of Holy Scripture to fit some depraved, politically correct, anti-God agenda.
I'm fed up with fables and misconceptions about the Bible that have endured for centuries.
I'm fed up with people saying the Bible doesn't mean what it says.
It means exactly what it says and it says what it means.
Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice selective PC...
Christians, like the above author, have long sung the praises of "Equality" in the form of the Civil Rights movement, anti-discrimination laws, desegregation and pro-miscegenation. (All things that prior generations of Christians resisted using the Bible as part of their justification.)
But like most people who pick up the chorus in mid-stream, they didn't pay attention to the lyrics.
"Equality" is an all encompassing cult that knows no exception.
Once you embrace the cult of equalness, in any way, then every single belief you lay claim to will be forced to fall by the wayside eventually.
If you embrace "Equality" then you reject (increasingly) all forms of difference.
If you embrace the notion that race is a social construct, you WILL in turn embrace the notion that gender is a social construct as well.
If you endorse interracial marriage today, then you WILL endorse homosexual marriage tomorrow.
.....and on it goes......
Once you except, partially or wholly, the notion of Equality, you have immersed yourself in a world of lies. And the more lies you tell yourself, and the more lies you allow yourself to believe in, the more detached you become from reality, until it gets to the point that reality itself become the enemy.
The cult of Equality strips people of their 'soul' because it engenders an apathy (and eventually a hostility) towards the ability to place value and assess worth.
It rips the very heart out of such truths as Nation, Community, Family, Father, Mother, Brother, Sister, Child and Friend, because it denies the very nature of their distinctiveness.
And in the end it destroys such "divisive" concepts as Devotion, Loyalty and Love, because those are three things that you can never apply equally to all places, things and people.
That is why today, as our society plunges deeper into the depraved depths of "Equality", we see anarchy, nihilism and violence escalating by a factor of ten from one year to the next.
Unless and until you learn to live with the limitations that the Truth will place on your need for warm, (and ultimately empty) fuzzy feelings, you are going to continue to be a participant in the taking of a-long-fought-for civilization down to the third level of societal hell.
