Came across this, OnBeing is a program about religion and philosophy on Public Radio Sunday morning.

Quite interesting.

Quote
“I’ve asked myself, ‘Why in the church does the question of gays and lesbians have such adrenaline.’ And I’ve decided, for myself, that that means most of what we’re arguing about with gays and lesbians has nothing to do with gays and lesbians. It is, rather, that the world is not the way we thought it was going to be. There have always been gays and lesbians; we’d have to acknowledge them.

It’s not fashionable any more to protest pushy blacks. It’s not fashionable to protest pushy women. Those battles are lost, or won. But you can still have great moral indignation around gays and lesbians.

And so I think what has happened is that we’ve taken all of our anxiety about the old world disappearing and we’ve dumped it all on that issue. So, I have concluded that it’s almost futile to have the theological argument about gays and lesbians any more because that’s not what the argument is about.”

Thanks Fritz for posting that link. Seems like theologians are discovering what politicians have found about exploiting the "other" for partisan advantage.

Yes, politicians make lousy theologians, and vice versa.

Mix religion and politics and wind up with the Taliban - armed with guns or IT, those who assume God is on their side believe that God allows them to breaks all the rules He gave them to keep themselves heaven-worthy!  WTF?

Shows the primacy of their own wills over the will of God. Highly convenient.

Don't mean to step on toes, but I'll help Sandy and Bri and answer.

Hi bri,

Sorry I didn't get back to you earlier. Vacation and internet connections issues.

I see some members have already given you some advice. If that doesn't work, let me know.

Good to see you,

Sandy
