    I fail to see how a man in a dress and makeup reading a book qualifies as "sexually charged content".

    There's pretty solid exegenesis that Paul on a couple of occasions at least was NOT referring to just straight up "homosexual attraction". There are queer biblical scholars who make some very interesting arguments that rely on taking the cultural context that the bible was written during, into consideration.

    The reason I knew about it was my father faced issues even into the 20th century simply because he was left handed. I've never understood the sects of Christianity which require conformity to an unrealistic standard. From what I have read of Jesus his whole idea was to meet people where they are and try to make life better through acceptance.

    Seems like? FOX didn't censor the pastor's message. Which aligns with practicing what they stand for. Who else but republicans will watch FOX news and need to make up their minds about who NOT to vote for in the GOP.

    "Burns is currently running for Congress in South Carolina's 4th District against three other Republicans."

    However..

    The author of the article is Meghan Roos and her bias is rather clear about anything Trump. So now I have to wonder how much of her article is actually true? Her writing doesn't quote much if anything to go by. I'm not sure why because it's easy enough to quote something substantive from her:

    Meghan Roos’s Profile | Newsweek Journalist | Muck Rack

    In the link above she is associating "Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas, was acting as former President Donald Trump's "henchwoman" in the weeks following the 2020 presidential election, according to MSNBC contributor and The Washington Post reporter Carol Leonnig. Leonnig appeared on MSNBC on Friday to discuss new reporting from her paper about Thomas' alleged assistance to the former president in the wake of the 2020 election." with scary quote marks.

    Since I haven't even heard of this guy and she neglects quoting anything but a few short words it leads me to believe she is either withholding information for political purposes or she is unable to express herself short of blind emotional attachment to her causes.

    Different people get "sexually charged" by different things, I suppose.

    And yet -- and in complete opposition to the teachings of Jesus Himself -- it's somehow the Drag Queens' fault if other people get "sexually charged."

    Go figure.

    Jesus was accepting; the Church has its own agenda -- social control

    Step 1. Set nigh-impossible standards.
    Step 2. Watch people fail.
    Step 3. Offer "forgiveness" for past failures in exchange for future obedience.

    Lather, rinse, repeat.

    That is certainly a chunk of it. Show love to people; with special attention to the most vulnerable.
    Christianity is always supposed to be about humility, both before God and our fellow man.
    American Christianity does not always have that flavour stirred through so much.

    Hers are direct quotes from interviews he's done. I wasn't looking for a response to the whole article but his explicit message.

    And FOX news ABSOLUTELY does censor. Of COURSE they do. Of COURSE.

    It's far more likely there's grooming going on in your local church by your local pastor, frankly.

    It's the same lie that the Christian right has been spouting for decades. It's even more ridiculous now that alot more people know gay people that are out.

    Millions of dollars are raised every year by ministries that lobby for laws in 3rd world countries calling for imprisonment and torture.

    Americans for Truth has suggested that homosexuals have their faces branded, as in a cattle brand.

    The Family Research Council submitted a massive proposal to the government calling for the construction of 90 to 110 "interment centers" It was proposed that the cost of maintaining these centers could be offset by selling tickets to people to come watch homosexuals be tortured, mutilated and executed.

    When 56 people were gunned down in a Florida gay nightclub there were people cheering the news.

    There are people who praise Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson as heroes for the murder of Matt Shepherd.

    This kind of thinking isn't as fring as you would like to beleive it is

    they arn't a problem. Hatred of LGBT's is a problem and a moral problem at that.

    I saw a great quote about this, "you think gays are trying to force people to change their sexual orientation, what horrible would a person like that be."

    This particular “non-profit” raised about $100,000 in a year. Assuming only $1 per member (to maximize the number of members) that equates to an organization representing less than 100,000 people in a country of 300 million people. That calculates out to less than 0.03% of the population.

    Contrast that with the PCUSA with 3.1 million members (about 1% of the population) that allows the ordination of Gay clergy and is very supportive of the LBGQT community.

    I will stand by my description of the most extreme (less than) 0.03% of a population as “fringe”.

    Well, little things like petitioning your news sources by saying "this is making 'us' look insane. Please stop giving this guy a platform".

    Jesus: Good point. Moral problem.....disagree but...one step at a time.

    He's WRONG! In more ways than one.

    When a man dresses in drag, he is making an explicit sexual overture.

    When a man dresses in drag, it is an expression of his sexuality. Case in point: gay pride parades, where gay people express their sexuality by dressing in drag.

    I just don't think children need to be exposed to that sort of thing.

    If that puts me in the minority, so be it.
