Those darned intolerant Christians...

Just when you think you can safely write 'em off as a bunch of intolerant Bible-thumping Jesus freaks, they go and do something like this...

Funny how you never see any Muslim organizations doing that sort of thing. I guess building codes prohibit putting up temporary stone walls just so they'll have something to knock over on top of the gays...

civil behavior:

Hallelujah!! From this I'm sure good christians everywhere will open up their hearts to gays and lesbians alike and begin treating them like the humans that they are. Equal rights will emerge from such a display of this reaching out so that gays and lesbians will never have to fear further discrimination at the invectives hurled at them from good christians everywhere.

Yes, Muslims could learn from this and carry this spirit of minding their own business and quit attacking foreign peoples for their personal views of what is good and special for all. Given that good christians superior beliefs are meant to teach Muslims how to better themselves in their search for democracy and equal treatment for all, good christians like those at Gordon U are showing they have an open mind to listen to all sides. Only then do we bomb the hell out of them.

"Funny how you never see any Muslim organizations doing that sort of thing."

Funnier how you never see any mainstream colleges doing this sort of thing. That is, inviting people with whom the campus majority disagrees to speak on campus and have a peaceful dialogue. How often do conservative speakers get shouted down by liberal groups on mainstream campuses, with the administration doing nothing to stop it? How often do said speakers have their invitations cancelled out of "safety concerns?" Those responsible for this pattern could learn or thing or two from this example.

Unfortunatey, the article indicates that the same or worse often happens to these "Soulforce" speakers on Christian campuses. It appears liberal campuses don't have a monopoly on closed-mindedness.

Jeff: "Unfortunatey, the article indicates that the same or worse often happens to these "Soulforce" speakers on Christian campuses."

Patently false.

Conservatives who have proper invitations to "secular" public institutions are often shouted down by those who proclaim themselves "tolerant".

The Soulforce speakers were not invited to the Christian (Private, decidedly non-secular) campuses. The Soulforce speakers are much more accurately described as "trespassers" on this private property.

The fact that Jeff cannot discern the difference between these situations speaks volumes indeed, but not about the Christian schools.

There certainly is an important difference, Drago, which Jeff ignores at his peril. However, the point about closemindedness is not without some merit.

A totally pointless exercise on the part of the Christian school.

First off, it is a private organization with its own standards for admittance - belief, adherence & practise to certain primary spiritual or philisophical tenets being of utmost importance. I'm quite certain that a rabid anti-theist or anarchist would not be admitted their school.

Second, these 'gay' activists do not want a dialog on this subject. These 'gay' activists want a stiffling of debate and a complete surrender from anyone in oppositon to their perverted sexual practices. Period. Public universities employ the same tactics against conservative individuals and groups.

These 'tolerant' Christians are fools if they think the objective of these 'gay' activists is anything other than complete silence from those in opposition to their perverted sexual practices.

~Next stop: congessional legislation & the thought police. Mark my words.

WildWillie:

When I see a homeless person, drunk on the street and smoking a decarded cigarette butt, I have pity on him, pray for him, give thanks that I am not in that position and hope he turns his life around and not be a drunkard, drug addict and/or sluggard.

When I see homosexuals, I pray for them, hope they turn from there sin instead of gladly embracing it.

Yes we are all God's children, but there are always consequences for our actions. If you live in sin and not acknowlege that sin and really try to turn from it, you are damned. Free will. It is a killer. Choices should be carefully considered. ww

For Kim and Sheik, since you find my idiom perplexing I'll step it down a notch just for you.

Good christians everywhere desire to teach evil muslims everywhere how polite they can be while hating the very essence of a person. How mighty Christian of them.

CB, you oughta know all about hatefulness. You've cornered the market on it. You've never posted anything here, or anywhere else I've seen your missives, that didn't contain some sort of sneering degradation of those you disagree with.
