Democrat members of the Colorado Senate have told Christians there‚Äôs no place in society for them, warning them to ‚Äúget thee to a nunnery‚ÄĚ for their biblically based beliefs that homosexuality is a sin.
‚ÄúWhat to say to those who claim that religion requires them to discriminate? I tell you what I‚Äôd say: ‚ÄėGet thee to a nunnery, and live there then. Go live a monastic life, away from modern society, away from people you can‚Äôt see as equals to yourself,‚Äô‚ÄĚ said homosexual state Sen. Pat Steadman of Denver.
Steadman expressed absolutely no tolerance for those of faith....

Good luck, Christopher. No matter where you go, I'm sure you'll bring joy and laughter, which is our Christian heritage in the Holy Ghost (Rom 14).

"told Christians there‚Äôs no place in society for them, warning them to ‚Äúget thee to a nunnery‚ÄĚ for their biblically based beliefs that homosexuality is a sin."
What Steadman is actually saying is "Remove Christians from the community."
Which demonstrates the kind of mentality which the Democrats have - Discrimination!!
But this is not an attack on Christians! This is an attack on the Word of God. Christians did not inform Steadman and his ilk that they are an abomination and defile the land, - We simply direct everybody to the Bible and God's Law.
As one of Satan's followers Steadman is on his way to eternal suffering and misery in hell, all because he wants to keep his degenerate and depraved lusts.
The Christian is trying to save him from this by telling all homosexuals THE TRUTH!!
Psalm 7:6 Arise, O LORD, in thine anger, lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me to the judgment that thou hast commanded.
v16 His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.
Oh what has happened to dear Scotlandof old. I walked many years ago in the highlands of Knox and the Covenanters and mourn for the light that once shone from your shores. May God grant it return soon.

Quite so, Cliff. And the world will never understand why it is that we preach the gospel to men, women and children who do not want to hear it. They do not realise that the gospel is the power of God, and that the Holy Spirit can reach into the darkest heart and turn it around in an instant. Those who are born of God know what this is like, and can rejoice in a saving God, who saves irrespective of a man's present enmity and unbelief. This is why God can have all the glory, not just some. PTL!
The kind of arrogant open hatred this guy is displaying is one of the first steps along a path that leads to book burnings, people burnings, firing squads, gass chambers, & gulags. It's prayer time christians.

Steadman expressed absolutely no tolerance for those of faith. They "preach" tolerance but don't practice it. They accuse us of forcing morality down their throats when that is exactly what they are trying to do. I don't think this is the work of "evil" corporations, but is the LGBTQ community trying to make their manner of life the norm
Christopher, they do not need the "gay" vote. they are dismantling traditional society to replace it with a large state that is god. (old babylon, old rome) it is a global movement and the reason for the foreign adventures (surely dismantling other countries and martyring Christians is not democracy). this large state is merging with huge corporations such as M. as we see in the news, the Gates foundation is "ending world hunger" by bringing M's self suiciding seeds (have to buy from them and do not own your own seed) to the continent of Africa. they have been in litigation throughout S.A. and Europe. This is a worldwide movement and God's judgment is on the american church -- because they have eyes but will not see. (they feed their children the tumor food in abject obedience while our raw milk providers get swat teamed)
they are serving the spiritual principalities of the air of which they gain power for the moment.
they want a world in which they can grab all that they want with no restraint. when sodomy is accepted, everything is fair game. it is also a way of silencing leaders, who get drawn in to these things, and then can be bought to silence. this is how the world has worked since the fall.
There is a lot of emotion, but no logic, in Mr. Steadman's words; for if he were logically consistent, he would have to advocate as broad a definition of marriage as there are sexual "preferences" in the world. Consistency would require him to say that the statutory definition of marriage should abolish ALL eligibility requirements for marriage based on sex, number, age, and consanguinity. Thus, if four people wish to become a married 'quad,' if a mother wants to marry her son, or a middle-aged man wants to marry a small girl he 'purchased' from her parents in Thailand, then the law must allow for these marriages as well as the so-called 'gay marriages' between two consenting adult partners of the same sex. Mr. Steadman is being inconsistent in wanting to 'broaden' the definition of marriage just so far but not far enough to accommodate EVERY citizen's sexual preference. Hence, there is no logic in his words. On the other hand, it is perfectly logical for society to give legal sanction and benefits to an institution that has proven over millenia to provide the ideal context for the propagation and upbringing of children-- heterosexual marriage-- and to deny those benefits to other forms of sexual union that undermine the future welfare of society.
I feel like the only reason that these guys, President and all, are pushing so hard on this issue all of a sudden is because they need the support and votes from the gay community. So, they have basically sold their souls for some votes and public approval, making the rest of us sound like a bunch of Intolerant haters.
