    Sounds like what America needs is a Christian Taliban. No music, no dancing, no immorality, no porn, no gays, thoroughly covered and modest women, men in complete control of everything, no abortions, lots of guns.

    If you believe that is really what it is about, I have a bridge to sell you.

    I used to be an Orthodox Christian. That kind of statecraft-priestcraft practiced in much of Russia has nothing to do with Jesus or his Gospel beyond turning him into a sock-puppet for the petty aspirations of men. The truth is that most Russians are only nominally Christian and don't understand much of anything about what being a Christian actually involves ethically. Instead, they substitute toxic nationalism, anti-semitism, and xenophobia.

    I often think that this is exactly what they want!

    The problem is that they're going to be very disappointed when they realize that their particular flavor Christianity isn't the one which is going to be enforced by stoning people to death.

    It could simply be that the light of God, which lights every man (John 1:9), guides them to want to do the right thing even if their personal creed isn't up-to-snuff from a Christian perspective.

    Which is why all you need worry about is yourself, and to respect the wishes of others.

    Divorce is generally bad all round. Yes and children suffer much pain.
    BUT divorce and separation do not necessarily stop children from knowing both of their
    biological parents and in maintaining connection with both [difficult that may be for some].

    Homosexual parenting and their artificial families are predicated on children being deliberately
    denied full access and involvement with both their natural biological parents.
    1: first by removal from either mother or father through IVF conception
    2: by rearing the child(ren) in a perverse copy of a two parent family where one or both of
    the biological parents are deliberately excluded from the unit for political reasons.

    It is a fundament denial of the rights of the child enshrined in both the UN Declaration and in the
    UN Convention of the rights of the child.

    Never mind about the secularists' failure to articulate an alternative sexual ethic, forget them, let's just have some of those good old biblical sexual ethics. How about we make a start by stoning to death those naughty women who are found not to be virgins on their wedding night? What do you think?

    I'd love to see documentation that either or both are necessarily part of gay people raising kids.

    Sexual politics the agenda behind the cultural Marxists and progressives of our time who
    are deconstructing our traditional family life and replacing it with new politically correct
    alternatives.
    It is not just free divorce; abortion on demand; children without marriage and committed
    responsible parents; but also now

    Homosexual parenting and homosexual marriage being politically enshrined as "equal" to the
    God given sacrament of heterosexual marriage.
    Transgender sexual education in schools and kindergartens whereby young children are being
    deliberately confused about their gender identity.
    The transgender fairy tells little children that they can choose to be whatever they want to be.
    The politically incorrect choice is being male and happy with that.

    Legislation is passed subverting the rights of parents (here in Australia) to know the content of
    and to withdraw their children from sexual "education" curricula.
    Legislation is passed making defending Christian values and other conservative viewpoints
    hate speech.
    Legislation is used to uphold humanism and radical sexual politics through many tribunals
    and the courts to quash challenging progressives and their agenda.
    Progressives have human rights, conservatives don't have them.
    Progressive politics in the media and in political capitals publicly and openly declare that
    their politically correct standards of the new morality is true and right; and that if you do
    not subscribe to their values and attitudes then you as a non-progressive are old fashioned,
    out of touch, bigoted, small minded, square jawed, hateful, deplorable, and a danger.

    Sexual politics a very successful tool used by Marxists to reconstruct a new Western society
    away from its Judeo-Christian legacy and to elevate the State as the new parent that
    succours its children from cradle to grave.

    I get the impression, this OP really thinks everyone should agree with him.

    I think it's "Anything goes as long as it is between consenting, informed adults of sound mind".

    Now I know that this is not very good if one holds moral ethics with the main goal to condemn people who are different, but nothing is perfect.

    Would you mind to tell us how all of this impacted your family life?

    Did your wife run away with a lesbian?

    Just like when one parent is in the military and killed in battle or one parent is a police officer and killed in the line of duty.

    in the eyes of the law it is. Your opinions and personal prejudices don't change that

    not true and you know it


    a blatant lie

    not true

    no true
    isn't that exactly what you are doing?

    square jawed?
