I am amazed and shocked how people like Judge Roy Moore and his wife, Kayla, do NOT understand the Bible.  Here is a woman who is President of a hate group.

Her husband is the hateful Judge Roy Moore who was removed by the Law Society for not enforcing the Supreme Court’s decision on marriage equality.  These two (amongst so many others) have the nerve to quote the Bible and “cast stones” against their fellow humans.  What don’t they understand about these words of Jesus, “Judge NOT, or you will be Judged.”  And the key message from the Parable of the Good Samaritan is that you don’t get to pick which neighbour to love.

All the Hate Because a Lesbian is Promoted in the Military.

First and foremost, congratulations to Col. Kristin Goodwin on her promotion.  I just love a woman in uniform. LOL.

I salute you on your promotion and on your marriage.

   I am Having This On-Going Debate

I have an African preacher who replies to my blogs and tells me that “I am unnatural as a lesbian.”  He is quoting Paul’s letter to the Corinthians.  Paul is asking new Christians to stay away from pagan temple orgies- all forms of sex, which is lust.  Paul speaks of the women of having “unnatural relations with other women.”  I try to point out to this preacher that on any given orgy day, the women gathering would probably be 99% straight.  So, it probably would be against their nature or preference but done for blessings of the goddess.

Let’s Look at Paul Again in Corithians.

This is a much quoted passage that is used at many weddings.  I would ask Judge Roy and his wife to look at what Paul speaks of as love.  Remember that John 1 states, “God is love.”   Look particularly at this line:

 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others,


Corinthians 13New International Version (NIV)

13 If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poorand give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

As a footnote:  This will be the comeback of the Moore’s.

  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
Because a person does not delight in evil, there is no reason to hate and demean that person.  If incest or pedophilia has been committed that is a crime – as is murder, thieving etc.  The law takes care of that.  However, homosexuality is not against the law of most civilised societies.  The Moore’s need to go back 3,500 years ago to Leviticus or misquote Paul.  As in the case of the “ungodly” and “unclean” Samaritan,  Jesus clearly is telling the lawyer not to judge.  He also tells the lawyer how to get to heaven: Love God, Love Neighbour and love self.

HUGE. The Associated Press reports:

A federal appeals court in Chicago on Tuesday ruled that the 1964 Civil Rights Act also protects LGBT employees from workplace discrimination, the first time a federal appellate court has come to that conclusion. The decision by the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals comes after it threw out a July finding by three of its own judges that the law doesn’t cover sexual-orientation bias and ordered a rare rehearing by the full court, a rare session known as an en banc hearing.
