Re: Tony Campolo and Homosexuality

Occasionally I encounter these sorts of arguments in various online media and they seem to be going through a sort of evolution... but mostly it has to do with trying to re-interpret anti-homosexuality verses to mean something limited to just condemning acts of homosexual rape or pederasty. The exp...

Re: Tony Campolo and Homosexuality

I get what you're saying there, and you're right that people point to all kinds of things as examples of sins that make them non-Christians. The thing is, I personally draw the line at specificity. What I mean by that is I don't think things like D&D and Michael Jackson music are sinful because it ...

Re: Tony Campolo and Homosexuality

Yeah, it's hard to have a conversation with "my way or the highway". And I can't really separate the quote from Walsh, but I'll give it a go: It’s one thing to crawl back to God and beg for forgiveness, it’s another to stand there and say you don’t need forgiveness because God was wrong when he call...

Re: Tony Campolo and Homosexuality

No, I'm not going to give him credit for being from Baltimore. The man is a virus. He ranted and raved about how awful it was that Leena Dunham wrote about touching her younger sister (which I agree is gross) while rationalizing the fact that Josh Duggar's family allowed him to stay in the same hous...

Re: Tony Campolo and Homosexuality

I've read tons of Matt Walsh, and there is little doubt in my mind that he thinks that way, even if he doesn't state it outright. The man really is some of the worst Christianity has to offer without going full Westboro Baptist. And it has everything to do with his cocky attitude, although a lot of ...

Re: Star Wars 7. SPOILERS

I have a few gripes, but overall I'd say I'm firmly in the "liked it" camp. I agree the pacing was messy in parts, and it might have been nice if the story wasn't a remake of A New Hope, but it worked as a "passing on the torch" movie. I feel like I can finally forgive the franchise for the prequels...

Re: Fallout 4: Who's playing?

I do like the Perk system. I feel that the Skills and perks were really too over-wrought in New Vegas, and the skills really just seems clunky and even a bit unusable. I agree. I always hated trying to decide how many points to put into each skill as soon as you gained a level, then finding out you...

Fallout 4: Who's playing?

I'm surprised I haven't seen a topic here yet, with all the Skyrim and Fallout 3 fans we used to have 'round here. I dig it so far. At first I didn't like that they basically eliminated the karma system, but once you find traveling buddies your actions affect your relationship with them. The "perk" ...

Re: What Happens When the 'Moral Majority' Becomes a Minority?

I consider you guys friends for sure. I also consider myself more tolerant than some other Christians.<snip>
Absolutely. I wouldn't bother to post here if I didn't like you guys.

I have more to say in reply to some other posts here, but I'd like to ruminate a bit first.

Re: What Happens When the 'Moral Majority' Becomes a Minority?

Yeah, I think the problem I have with this whole deal (and probably AA too, although I can't speak for him) is that for all the wailing and hand-wringing that many Christians are doing over their loss of privilege, they don't seem to care much about others having the same rights. I mean, one example...
