So Much for Tolerance

I have got used to nastiness and insults from people. If you dare oppose Debbie Maken, you will get all kinds of nasty comments from her and her followers. Hence, I am not that easily offended. However, if you are easily offended, do not click this link. to the O'Reilly factor. What he shows on this segement just may end up really offending you. Yes, we have an entire musical mocking Christianity, and its opposition to homosexuality. Also, we found that Hollywood script writers do not know how to do exegesis, as the well known distinction between the usage of hb'[eAT in Leviticus [relevant to chapter 18] where it refers specifically to moral abomination, and in Deuteronomy [relevant to chapter 14] which speaks specifically of dietary laws, using terms that are code words for ritual uncleanliness. There have been entire dissertations written on the differences of hb'[eAT in these two books. Of course, this is hollywood, and we will ignore any kind of rationality when it comes to the promotion of gay marriage.

More than that, it shows you that the mask of tolerance is off for these folks. Their hatred for God and for his law is coming out clearer and clearer.

Exegesis is way too hard for those guys. I'm not talking about the rigor involved--for about 95% of Biblical passages, people don't need to know Greek or Hebrew--but rather their difficulty in facing the truth.

I've found that, the vast majority of the time, the problem is not understanding the Biblical text--although some passages are difficult--but rather our desire to want it to conform to our own views.

What would you think of a musical that was derogatory towards some other religion? While I do feel that we should all try to be respectful of all faiths, even those we may disagree with. I still strongly believe in freedom of expression. They have the freedom to mock you, and your values. And you likewise have the right to refute, and dispute them. Just like with the Danish cartoon controversy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jyllands-Posten_Muhammad_cartoons_controversy People do not have the right not to be offended.

RedKnight,

Obviously, if they did that to the Koran, there would be riots in the streets, so, they dare not do that.

The point is that the mask of tolerance is off these folks. Their true colors are coming out. They are anti-Christian, and anti-God. I hope, given all that has gone on in these past few weeks that our society has woken up to that.

God Bless,
PuritanCalvinist
