More Facebook nuttery. One of the few people from the church I grew up in who I will allow to be my Facebook friend posted this meme, which I wholeheartedly approve of, and some of the responses made me see red. I didn’t bother to comment because I really don’t want to get into it with anybody (and I don’t go to church unless there’s a funeral) but I thought I’d share them here so we can all laugh at their stumbling block of intolerance.

OK so I responded to my friend’s post with icolan’s links, and someone answered me. I could have asked her, based on OT law, why we’re still eating pork and shellfish and wearing polyester, but like I said I didn’t want to engage that much.

Someone should point out that 2000 years of biblical marriage are not what we call marriage today. Biblical marriage was more about property rights than any emotions between the participants or even choice on the part ot the woman. Biblical marriage included a man and his many wives, a man and his brother's widow, a man who had raped a woman, and many others.

Also, there are many articles about the mis-translation of homosexuality in key verses.

Thank you SO much, I posted both those articles as comments under my friend’s post. I don’t expect anyone to engage with me (I’m half hoping they don’t) but he’ll have some ammo if he ever wants to argue with anyone in person. (I notice he didn’t bother to engage with the other commenters.)
