"The Rev. Murdoch Smith, pastor of St. Martinâ€™s Episcopal Church in Charlotte, challenged Grahamâ€™s view, saying â€śI am always suspect when someone says that they know the mind of God.â€ť"
Smith of the "Liberal" Episcopal outfit disagrees with Graham, - And his reason because he suspects people who say they know the mind of God???
In other words Smith has decided that the "mind of God" agrees with the Episcopal Liberal position on sodomite marital unions. As per usual the Episcopal outfit demonstrate that they cannot read the truth in Scripture and that they would rather ditch the law of God to keep the sin-lust-abomination.
It is clear that it is pointless to say to the Episcopal outfit that the Bible reveals the mind of God, since their religion - that of Liberalism - removes them from Biblical and Christian doctrine.
The same Liberal disease which Obama suffers from is endemic in the Episcopal/Anglican outfit.
This Article wrote: For decades, liberals - aided and abetted by the popular culture - have been bringing homosexuality into the mainstream. It is slowly being promoted in public schools and constantly being glamorized in television shows and movies. The more the homosexual agenda is spread, the more militant its advocates become. They no longer want toleration. They seek full social acceptance. Once marriage falls, only one institution will be left standing in their way: traditional Christianity. The ultimate aim of the radical left has been to destroy religion - especially Western Christendom. Once a religion dies, so does the culture and civilization it spawned. America is at a crossroads, enmeshed in a cultural war with homosexual advocates like Mr. Obama who are determined to strike at the very nexus of our civilization.
Good article and good Christian ethics recorded. Lets hope and pray the American people take these sentiments to heart and sweep Liberalism, Obama and the Democrats out of existence at the election. Only thus will they refrain from the Wrath of God.
Quote: ""Men and Americans without a college degree are more likely to say homosexuality is sinful. Forty-seven percent of men say it is a sin, but only 40 percent of women. And, 49 percent of those without a college degree say homosexual behavior is a sin, compared with 35 percent who have a college degree.""
I guess that means that education is bad for you?
I guess some women take a softer attitude to questions like this about other people.
God says that homosexuality is an abomination. Is that worse than 'sin??
Strongs on "Abomination" H8441 תּעבה תּועבה tô‛êbah tô‛êbah to-ay-baw', to-ay-baw' Feminine active participle of H8581; properly something disgusting (morally), that is, (as noun) an abhorrence; especially idolatry or (concretely) an idol: - abominable (custom, thing), abomination."
"Pelosi responded: "My religion has, compels me--and I love it for it--to be against discrimination of any kind in our country, and I consider this a form of discrimination. I think itâ€™s unconstitutional on top of that""
The basis of Christian teaching towards other people is "Love thy neighbour"
Pelosi appears to be ignorant of this simple fact.
Her attitude seems to be ditch the Bible - and keep the lust.
Thus Pelosi does not practice Love thy neighbour - she instead practices hate thy neighbour and send them to hell by teaching them to maintain the abomination.
Homosexuality is a sin. Scripture teaches that we are to struggle with sin and seek to avoid and defeat it. Christians are to witness to the effect that our neighbour should stop sinning.
Pelosi and Obama her boss's policy is continue in sin and go to hell!!
What evil people these Democrats are.
But of course when you have churches just as evil as this, such as the Episcopal, Anglican, Lutheran, Methodist etc etc who also teach "carry on sinning" regardless what the Bible says, then can we blame politicians for the unBiblical and stupid teaching?

He was guided by you guys in New York Mike.
Quote. "I asked myself right after that New York vote took place, if I had been a state senator, which I was for a time, how would I have voted?" Obama told Roberts. "And I had to admit to myself, 'You know what? I think that I would have voted yes.'"
Quote. "It would have been hard for me, knowing all the friends and family that are gays or lesbians, that for me to say to them, you know, 'I voted to oppose you having the same kind of rights and responsibilities that I have,'" he said."
There you are folks your illustrious leader says its all about "rights and responsibilities."
John Yurich USA wrote: Oh knock it off. Catholic teaching states that Jesus is God Incarnate and is totally sinless. Only a Catholic who is deranged and psychotic would deny that Jesus is totally sinless because that is basic Catholic teaching. I agree with you though that it is total insanity that any educated Catholic would bow down to and worship statues and pictures of the Virgin Mary and the Saints
Then it is time you abandoned this quote, "deranged and psychotically" led bunch John... In accordance with... "9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds." 2John.
**ALL** of the Roman Catholic conglomeration worships dumb idols and dead body relics. This pagan and frankly ludicrous ritual is an every day event for these poor fools who DON'T KNOW JESUS or who He really is and what the incarnation means.
Considering the Roman Catholic followers of the papal antichrist worship statuettes, icons on toast and bits of cloth from some ancient sinners T shirt it is no surprise that these poor reprobates haven't a clue who Jesus is and what He stands for in Christianity.
"The teasing was going to a level where the victim got very upset about it. His parents are not happy with him and have imposed their own curfew"
This is not about "religion" it is about a nasty little kid who obviously needs some firm parental guidance and the necessary chastisement to correct his current disposition.
As for 'paganism' part of the problem is society, especially since people such as the Archbishop of Canterbury became a druid which consequently promotes and validates paganism within an ignorant church which should know better.

No! Its a good reason to keep the King James Bible as written. Since these modern connotations are being used in an entirely different way. In the past traditional moral standards were not corrupted by governments and institutions as they are todays society. Also the church/Christianity had more respect within the community. Today these definition changes are being applied in such a way as to destroy morals and the Biblical precepts by people in authority such as bishops and politicians etc.
Modern versions and the roman catholic predisposition to ignore the Bible or rewrite it for the catholic followers is weakening the Bible position in society. The result being the Bible is no longer respected as the word of God and cults such as Liberalism take over in churches and in institutions of society.
