Poll: Majority of Americans Say Same-Sex Relations Are OK
From 1973 to 2010, the General Social Survey (GSS) has asked Americans if they think sexual relations between same-sex couples are wrong. Up until 2008, a majority of Americans have answered that such behavior is 'always wrong.' But the latest GSS, conducted in 2010, finds that only 46 percent of Americans hold this position.
The GSS, a federally-funded survey, is considered the gold standard for polling on social behaviors, attitudes, and values and has asked the same question on homosexual behavior since its inception: ‚ÄúAre sexual relations between two adults of the same sex always, almost always, sometimes, or never wrong?‚ÄĚ Until the 1990s, opposition to homosexuality ran high. Nearly seven-in-ten Americans said same-sex sexual relations were always wrong....

Out of the beaks came a blinding light, which you could barely look at. From their tails I saw flames of fire shooting out. I became very frightened. I rubbed my eyes, thinking I was asleep and dreaming. But I was neither sleeping nor dreaming.
This flock of birds suddenly turned into airplanes that did not make any noise. American airplanes would go up, trying to attack. But as they would draw close, they would fall to the earth in a blaze of fire.
Once again, I heard the voice, but I could not see who was speaking to me. The voice said, "Look higher than the black planes." When I looked, above the planes, I saw a helicopter which hovered above them. On the side of the helicopter there was a plank, like on a ship, where soldiers were lined up, dressed in black, all armed the same, and of about the same size. From the center of the helicopter, a platform began to raise up. It rose higher than the helicopter itself.
On the platform was a throne. The Pope was on the throne, yelling...
Gasp! I was just on another thread pointing out about those who call themselves prophets Temporary Gifts the Spirit Gave. Ah, let's see if I can find some reading material to point out the lie of the idea of modern prophets, This should do, Combating Charismatic Theology as Phil Johnson wrote in that commentary, (excerpts)
Phil Johnson wrote: I had time even to give you a broad overview of the groups and individuals throughout church history who have claimed to exercise miraculous gifts, that in and of itself would be instructive because for the most part what you discover is they‚Äôre all kooks, and cranks, and spiritual eccentrics. . . .In 2,000 years, virtually every prophet has been overwhelmingly rejected by mainstream Christianity and every bit of extrabiblical revelation--all these prophesies that are touted, and all that stuff has been discredited and disapproved or declared heretical--until our generation, and now that is no longer the case....

You, sir, are a bully and menace to all things good.
Your selfishness is legendary on this and other blogs.
My, my, the buffoons are at it again. I will just point out many of these people apparently go to First "Baptist" in Hammond Indiana. they sound like the non-Christians that inhabit that A Look at the Pentecostal/Charismatic Movement--Is It Biblical? Let's look at these "gentlemen's" comments who post under various alias' if you are a Christian would you want to go to the same church that supports all this foolish nonsense that come out of their mouths? Of course not, that's why I point out, Christian Fellowship Church as a great alternative church.
Now if these people aren't just spouting all of this nonsense to gain power, influence --or political advantage-- which is just your everyday, garden variety sin, and actually hear voices and we know the gift of prophecy is finished with the real apostles, q.v., Spiritual Gifts, then these guys could be having a medical problem such as schizophrenia and I would suggest they see a medical doctor to have the conditioned diagnosed and treated for their own well being, and for people such as those on SA that suffer from their obnoxious behavior

Some examples might be helpful for you to demonstrate fully your observation.

I fell asleep sometime around midnight. About 2:00 a.m. I heard a loud voice saying to me "Dumitru! Wake up! I must show you something! Even though I was ill, I jumped to my feet, without realizing that I was awake. Then I realized I wasn't even in Romania. I saw myself in America.
A powerful voice spoke sternly to me, "Why have you become discouraged? Why did you try to question God, thinking in your heart that I have left you? Why do you keep so much sadness in your heart, and such great mourning because i took your wife? Why have you allowed yourself to become discouraged so you will no longer be able to work for me as you have until now? This is why I have come to you, to show you a revelation, which you must tell the American people."
The voice boomed at me, telling me to look to my right. I was awake - not sleeping. I was standing, and I turned my head as ordered. When I looked, I saw that there was a great flock of black birds, with very sharp, large beaks. Out of the beaks...
Oh, gasp, a person who hears voices! You should really see someone about that! Anyone who thinks he's a prophet does needs his head examined. Prophecy is not one of the permanent gifts and is a false view of the Charismatics. For written material about this by John MacArthur, Does God still give revelation? and a sermon by my pastor, Temporary Gifts the Spirit Gave.
