| | My apologies
Well that thread got closed really fast. I didn't have time to get anything in on my behalf.
First off, I want to apologize for "how" I said what I said. When I stated that the article "sickens me" I merely meant it made ME feel bad about that this act is going on in our most important and respectable political house. This is the Christian corner and one of the many Christian beliefs is that men are supposed to be married to women and women are to be married to men. Maybe "sickening" was a poor choice of words. Disheartening sounds better and really depicts how I felt after reading this article.
Now the next subject. To start accusing me of "hating" gay and lesbian people is completely inaccurate and offensive. So for that, I hope I do get an apology. I in no way said anything of the sort. Do I hate gay and lesbians? NO. Absolutely not. I know gay and lesbian people and I interact with them almost daily. Do I condone their lifestyle? NO. Just because they do something I think is not biblical doesn't mean I hate them. This is a worldly view of all Christians. The world thinks that Christians hate gays, lesbians, muslims, buddists, etc... In fact the exact opposite is true. I don't hate them, to me, as a Christian, they are "lost" and it is my goal to win them over for God. If I can't do this, hopefully I at least planted a seed that someone else will then further water and nurture and hopefully it will grow into a relationship with our Heavenly Father and accepting He sent His Son to die on the cross for our sins. That's my hope for everyone. I don't hate people for their beliefs. If that were the case, I would hate Scorpion for what he believes in- and that's just not true. I respect him and his stance. I told him my stance in another thread and he respected me. It is my hope that I can further talk to him one day about the greatest gift ever. I was open with him and he was open with me. Do we agree? No, not really. So does that mean I hate him? NO. That would be childish and ridiculous.
I do not view gay marriage as a Godly thing. I do not believe God made humans "gay". I believe homosexuality is a sin and I believe people who are committing this sin can be saved from it just the same as I'm saved from the sin I commit. These are my beliefs. This is what I believe in. I always have and always will because through my eyes and many others like me, it's the TRUTH.
So in closing, I am sorry to anyone I may have offended. That was not my intention. I was not trying to relay hatred toward this particular lifestyle. I chose my words poorly and I hope I have not caused any separation amongst ourselves here at the DHC.
Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable
...and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my times has come, still my soul will sing Your praise unending, ten thousand years and then forevermore!
