Jesus is into torture porn (per Jeffrey Clemens)? That's a new one. Are you projecting?

Re: “Reader: Yup ... it's us bad, old Bible-believing Christians...

My, my, my, Tom!! You do have a deep affection for loaded words, don't you? You know, those turns of the language that are intended to inflame the emotions of your desired audience? Words like "drama queen" and "over-exaggerated" and "religious boogeyman" and "claims" (you aren't familiar with the term "postulate"?) and "rant and rail" and "bad, old bibble believing christians" and "LGBTQ agenda" and "pushing progressive agenda (oh, my! so many agendas!! and all hers! not yours, of course) and 'supposed evangelical stronghold".... It's pretty clear that you have inflamed yourself, Tom! To what end? Do you feel strong now? Do you puff up with pride at your hateful letter? Do you think you have brought anyone over to your agenda? Do you feel superior, sinless, blameless? Did you put her in her place (the closet)? Are you fighting those feelings of attraction to guys inside yourself? It's okay, really. You were born whatever way your god intended. Just go with it.

Re: “Reader: Continue to fight for justice

You are full of yourself if you think you are facing obstacles that no one has faced before and that is coming from someone who thinks Glenn Perry is as disrespectful to millennials as you are being to others.

Re: “The tick and the time bomb

I was diagnosed of herpes 4 years ago, the doctor said there are no possible cure for the virus. But i never gave up hope of getting cured. i have been living with it taking treatment and medical advise. we later discovered that my wife was effected too, i felt so bad and started searching the internet for a cure, and found people talking about getting cured by Dr. Akula herbal medicine. I contacted him through his email: SANGOHEALINGTEMPLE@GMAIL.COM, he called me and we talked on phone and i discovered he was genuine. But i was still a little skeptical about it, my wife felt okay with it and we gave it a try and got the medicine from him, took it according to the dosage. After 3 weeks my wife went for check up and she was completely cured, i went for mine and i was cured, we both went together and doctor said the virus was completely gone. It was amazing, a thing of joy. Dr Akula herbs medicine is capable of curing HSV 1&2 completely. contact him today Email: SANGOHEALINGTEMPLE@GMAIL.COM

Re: “The tick and the time bomb

"My career was going down the pan, I text Dr Akula and he helped me, with a lot of
hard work on Dr Akula behalf and my patience nearing breaking point, I eventually got
a decent job, with decent money. (Also he's not very expensive either, much cheaper
than I was quoted from other companies)" contact him anytime: sangohealingtemple@gmail.com

He reinforces every point made by the letter he argues against.
The Rev forgets Gordon Klingenschmitt who exemplifies the right wing 'Christian moral majority'.
Rev. Tommy Latham doesn't see that he is ranting against gays which is why he might not notice if the churches he visits are gas lighting or dog whistling.

Re: “Reader: Yup ... it's us bad, old Bible-believing Christians...

Every one of us that judges another human for being themselves, and for just being whom and what they are; needs to be careful what they say and preach. Their very own words also are so-called SIN, and that being that they thereby condemn themselves as well to eternal judgement by usurping "God's" authority to judge... of which no one else is given permission. ( read your so-called scriptures ) you idiots. And I quote... " Judge not lest ye be Judged also... ", for as surely as you are born; ... YOUR SIN ... will find you out! ". And if you don't believe that... you are Already self-condemned through your own actions and omissions. We are none of us without sin, no not one! Get over yourselves you ignorant and brazen usurpers of un-given authority.
If that sends me to Hell... so freaking be it! I for one ... am not afraid of your fantasy scare tactics to try and persuade me believe the nonsense I studied and you all puke out: to be a Jesuit Priest! Which I finally learned enough to renounce. I'll bring the Weinies, you bring the Marshmellows, Chocolate bars, and Graham Crackers. We'll party for Eternity you blithering fools!

"My concern is why she would even want to push her LGBTQ agenda in an evangelical church when she knows what their church doctrine proclaims."

Perhaps to try to educate the ignorant and woefully stupid? The LGBTQ aren't sinners because of their sexuality they were born with. Preaching and believing this lie, is bigotry and extremely cruel to fellow humans. Enough said.

Re: “Reader: Yup ... it's us bad, old Bible-believing Christians...

See this from the perspective of someone born knowing that they are gay; knowing since a child that they desire men or women in a way that is different than most people. For them: this is who you are. Now, there are these religious groups that believe, as you say, homosexuality is a sin. So according to the bible: who they are, that fundamental part of them, is evil. Murder is a sin. Lying is a sin. Cheating is a sin. Desiring someone the same sex as you is a sin.

But Reverend Tommy, murder, lying, and cheating are choices. Can you choose to go out Friday night and desire men? Unless you were already born with tendencies there would be nothing appealing to have sex with a man. Can you choose to believe gravity doesnt exist, or decide that you dont like chocolate? You have not spent enough time with gay people if cannot see that theres nothing that can make them not gay--because it is part of who they are.

From their perspective this sin of homosexuality in your book is simply a rule that was put there 3,000 years ago to distinguish a nomadic tribe from competing agricultural tribes settled in Fertile Crescent. Valuable for a tribe trying to maintain its population, irrelevant to a diverse society in an overpopulated planet. But the result of which is the majority population believe homosexuals are born evil. They are to be pitied. They are other. If you dont see how a religious adherence to an outdated law has an emotional impact that can influence someones entire life then you are being willfully blind.
Which is of course your choice.

Re: “Reader: Yup ... it's us bad, old Bible-believing Christians...

God will send an estimated 85% of all humans who ever lived to hell, a place of ETERNAL conscious torture from which there is no escape and no purpose except for god's revenge. Jesus himself will descend into hell, just so he can watch the torment of the damned in person, a sort of torture-porn. Christians in heaven can watch the sinners being burned too. Homosexuals are to be stoned to death. Rread the Bible, it's all clearly stated there, no metaphor needed. Oh yes, and god loves youl PS Ted Haggert never preached against gays, right?

Re: “Sexual assault victims say Air Force Academy uses mental health counseling to get rid of them

Commonsense, logic and reasoning says if the level of sexual assaults are true. Then what is the level of racial discrimination in the military? Since it appears there is a cultural lack of respect for women that are the same race as the offenders. It stands to reason there would be little respect for the equality of members of a different race.
