Is homosexuality a ‘handicap?’

Wednesday, June 5, 2013
Red colored my vision the other day as I was packing a box of old papers in preparation for their move. The files I had to go through seemed endless. As I neared the bottom of one stack, I came across a beaten brown manila folder that stopped me dead. It was labeled “Rob’s homosexuality.” This was certainly a subject for discussion that my parents and I have had for over thirty years now. I was not aware, however, that it had warranted its own special file... [ Read more → ]

Let’s be rational, logical and real: Sex is not a sin

Sunday, July 15, 2012
Today's freedom for the sexual expression of our love for each other is recognised as the individual human right to determine with whom we wish to have an ejaculation, so long as that is what they want as well. If you both want to do so regularly, then you should have the freedom to marry each other. [ Read more → ]

Is ‘gay’ a religion?

Sunday, April 29, 2012
The parroting purveyors of pious propaganda cannot claim that they weren’t warned; that if they continued to oppress reality their religious view would be openly challenged until becoming obvious that theirs is an insanity based on completely uncorroborated myths. It can hardly be denied that human beings want, even need, something to believe in, but must that be delusional? Couldn’t it be as real as life itself; something that fills the void in the human spirit and yet we overlook it because it is so obvious that we continually miss its reality…the fact which makes us alive, makes life worth living, and creates life?

What does Jesus think about homosexuality?

Thursday, April 26, 2012
Jesus never says a word about homosexuality, but there was one kind of sin that he spoke out against all the time. There was one kind of sin that got Jesus really mad. This was the sin of religious people who shut out those in need of mercy. This was the sin of people who used the Bible as a weapon. You hear Jesus saying this on page after page of the gospels. Why? Because this type of sin has the potential to damage people like few other things do. It is particularly damaging because they claim to be speaking for God. So if we really want to speak out against sin, we as Christians need to speak out against the kind of sin that Jesus did, and side with the kinds of folks he did. [ Read more → ]
