If you've been reading my posts lately, you know that I've been addressing the issue of gay marriage recently.

In discussing this and reading other blogs and such about this issue, the topic of Christianity pops up ... oh almost always. So, I figure I'll address some concepts that are addressed in the Bible but apparently disconnected from the modern Christian.

Christ said that it is harder for a rich man to reach Heaven than it is for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle. SO! Where do profits come into the picture? Or greed? What excuse are you going to give God when he asks you what you did with the profit you made from your stocks?

Scripture tells us about the Pharisees laying down the literal law and Christ pointed at his disciples and said they aren't breaking the spirit of the law so basically, nyahhh. SO! Why do we gays get quoted from THREE passages of the bible over and over and over again?

Christ pointed out the humble man praying and praised his efforts over the proud rich man who was beating his chest. SO! Why do you all listen to loud proud rich men?

I just re-read the Sermon on the Mount. If you read it for yourself, you will see that the path Christ set out is not just hard, it's harsh. We're to forgive EVERYONE, even ones who destroy two towers full of people. We can't even think nasty thoughts. AND, he goes on to talk about divorced people.

So let me get this right. Christ himself said
"Furthermore it has been said, "Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.' 32But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife for any reason except sexual immorality causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery.
Why the hell isn't divorce ILLEGAL??????

I remember seeing an episode of Ren and Stimpy. It was one that was supposedly censored out of the first season. In it, the Sarge buys Ren and Stimpy and then proceeds to train them. He points at the sofa and says "That's a nono." Then he tells them to get on sofa. Ren refused and gets swatted (for obeying him). Stimpy finally gets on the sofa, the Sarge yells at him "No" then when Stimpy jumps off, he gets a good dog. But Ren got beat cause he heard the first directive and stood by it. To me, that's the concept of Christianity being sold today. (As opposed to what Christ's teachings are)
