I have a Jewish friend. Been friends with him and his family for years. His family pretty much dumped me when they found out I was gay but my friend and I are still close. Even though his parents aren't thilled about it.
Anyway, He told me that his church is telling them what to say when asked about homosexuality. They are told to say "God is love and that we aren't to judge". He said that there is too much backlash in being honest. This way makes it look like you support homosexuality but you don't have so say that you do. I told him I thought it was a cop out but he said said the Church had to do something and this way no one will probes further. I don't get it.
I have no problem with that. As long as they don't try to impose their religious convictions on everybody else, I don't care what anybody believes.
Your Jewish friend told you about his Church? Just how close are you?
Ecumenically Sensitive Too?
There are too many lies in this post to enumerate.
Don't waste your time with anyone who has to rely on religion or church to think for them
OP is trolling.
Don't feed the fundie troll.
Kill it. With fire.
Friends with a family for years and he thinks his Jewish friends go to church.
Supposing this is true -
most gay people can see right through that kind of bullshit "love the sinner - hate the sin" idiocy...
I'm with r1.
Who gives a shit what sky-friend-worshiping infantile nitwits think? As long as they're not passing laws to govern my life and my choices, they're free to believe whatever they want.
Whatever happened to Planking?
Well, to be fair, the Jewish Pope refrained from attacking the gays in his Christmas Mass last year.
I hate that Jews think condescending thoughts about us while singing "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God" along with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
It bugs me when Jewish people hog all the Easter eggs.
Also, the ham.
