Hypocrisy shrouds the gay marriage debate

November 8, 2010

Gay Christian Flag

 

The issue of same-sex marriage has receded into the background during this past election cycle, mostly because voters are overwhelmed by the state of the economy. But the recent spate of gay teen suicides has thrust the issue of anti-gay bigotry back into the spotlight.

Even some Christian leaders are re-thinking their approach to this issue. Exodus International, a Christian activist “ex-gay” group, pulled its sponsorship of the annual “Day of Truth,” where high school students are encouraged to express their disapproval of homosexuality.

But why did it take multiple suicides to make a Christian group realize that heaping condemnation and judgment on others is not its job? A reading of any of the Gospels would teach you that in about two minutes.

Let’s remember, Satan wasn’t kicked out of heaven for being gay: It was pride. The people who really ticked off Jesus were the Pharisees, who were self-righteous and hypocritical, which could fairly describe many of today’s Christians.

What Would Dorothy Do?

 

These days I view Jesus like I view Elvis… Love the guy, but his fan club scares me.  It’s time that someone calls these “Christians” out for what they are, self-righteous, hypocritical, prideful sinners.  Maybe THIS is what Christ meant in Mathew 7:15 “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.”(NIV

It seems those who are most fervent in religion always have the most to hide.  Perhaps their outright hatred of homosexuality is an outlet for them to avoid their own inner feelings?
