Baptist Minister Says the Book of Genesis Gets Human Sexuality All Wrong

Stayton, professor emeritus in the Center for Human Sexuality Studies at Widener University, said the same embryonic material develops in the womb into both male and female. Which depends on factors including whether the default progression toward an XX chromosome pair is switched off by the introduction of the Y chromosome from the male.

“It’s impossible in biology — and when you look at paleobiology — it’s impossible that males came first,” Stayton said. “God does not go against God’s own setup, if you will. Nature’s intention is always to produce a female, and you have to add something to weaken the system and make it a man.”

“That’s a really profound thing that we haven’t dealt with very well, especially with Genesis,” he said. “Actually, the pre-Hebrew religions were all female worldwide, and Genesis turns out to be the final putdown of women. That’s a very important teaching for us in working in this field.”

“There is no binary male and female,” Stayton said. “We are all on a spectrum.”

“Even in this room, we’re all on a spectrum, and it’s important that we begin to see the matrix, the dimensions, the possibilities along that spectrum that we all are on, that it’s all normal.”

Regarding sexual orientation, Stayton introduced the Kinsey Scale, used in college textbooks ranging from zero for exclusively heterosexual to six for exclusively homosexual. Stayton said research indicates that 80 percent of people are somewhere in between.

‘Nature’s intention really is to produce a three,” he said. “The more repressive a society becomes, the more it reaches out to the bipolar opposites. The less repressive societies move into the two, three, four categories.”

Stayton then proposed a “solid biblical case” for proving that Jesus was “a solid three.”

This is Independent Fundamental Baptist Pastor Jonathan Shelley of Pure Words Baptist Church in Houston, Texas giving a lengthy rant against the mere existence of gay people… who he claims are shoving their agenda “down your throat.”

Even beyond that, he claims that since LGBTQ people “hate God” when it comes to sexuality, they’re also capable of all kinds of evil.

Karen Pence Campaigns For GOP House Candidate Who Longs For Return To Criminalization Of Homosexuality

http://www.joemygod.com/2018/10/11/karen-pence-campaigns-for-gop-house-candidate-who-longs-for-return-to-criminalization-of-homosexuality/

“In one generation you and I have witnessed this country sliding from a nation who once shared a moral vision based on Judeo-Christian ethic to a nation floundering in moral decay. In one generation we have watched our nation who once believed in lifelong marriages to the same spouse to a divorce rate now well over 50 percent. We have watched in one generation where homosexuality was once criminalized to now we see the criminalization of Christianity.”

Brett Kavanaugh Confirmation: Hello Christian Theocracy; Goodbye Church-State Separation

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/progressivesecularhumanist/2018/10/brett-kavanaugh-confirmation-hello-christian-theocracy-goodbye-church-state-separation/

Goodbye separation of church and state – hello Christian theocracy: Dramatic change is coming with the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh’s successful confirmation to the Supreme Court last week despite an intemperate, childish, and belligerent performance during his senate confirmation hearings, as well as credible allegations that he sexually assaulted multiple women as a young man, will reshape the court in dramatic fashion, threatening the separation of church and state, and promising the nightmare that would be a Christian theocracy.

During this confirmation process, our worst fears about Kavanaugh’s record, judicial philosophy, and temperament were confirmed. He has repeatedly shown himself to be a partisan ideologue who is more interested in protecting religious privilege for politically powerful sects than standing up for true religious freedom.

Kavanaugh’s views on religious issues are deeply outside the mainstream and threaten decades of precedent on issues ranging from taxpayer subsidy of religion and proselytizing in public schools, to civil rights protections for LGBTQ Americans and access to reproductive health care for women.

GOP Candidate, a Pastor, Wants to Go Back to When Being Gay Was “Criminalized”

In one generation you and I have witnessed this country sliding from a nation who once shared a moral vision based on Judeo-Christian ethic to a nation floundering in moral decay. In one generation we have watched our nation who once believed in lifelong marriages to the same spouse to a divorce rate now well over 50 percent. We have watched in one generation where homosexuality was once criminalized to now we see the criminalization of Christianity. And I could go on and on with the entertainment, with the education, with the life issue.

That “lock the gay away” sentiment may not have been out of place when Harris was pastor of First Baptist Church Charlotte, but no electable politician should long for a time when some of his own constituents would be in prison despite doing nothing wrong.

(While we’re at it, there’s no criminalization of Christianity, either. The government is not raiding churches on Sunday mornings.)

It’s not even the only time he’s said something both nasty and untrue about the gay community. In 2013, Harris, running for U.S. Senate at the time, falsely claimed gay people choose that “lifestyle.”

The Religious Right Appears Intent On Criminalizing Gay Sex Again

Well it has happened again, people using their religion to discriminate in government services.

It did not take long for the idea of religious freedom to discriminate against those you dislike.  It is part of her job, the laws require her to issue the licence but no she wants the men to schedule an appointment with her deputy or go to another town and get what she is required by law to provide.   I am so sick of this damn bigotry.  Bigots for Jesus is a large group it seems.    She is demanding the men be inconvenienced, have to go to lengths a non same sex couple wouldn’t have to do.  This is not equal under the law.  But she doesn’t want to be inconvenienced by doing her job.  It says right in the laws that she can not discriminate against the men, but heck she thinks her god view is above the laws.  This is not about her religious beliefs, this is about her doing the job she is paid to so.

New ‘Religious Liberty Task Force’ Will Promote Christianity, Punish Non-Believers

Bottom line: The new “Religious Liberty Task Force” will promote Christianity, and punish non-believers. It will protect conservative Christians who want to discriminate against women, members of the LGBT population, and others, all in the name of “religious freedom.” In short, our long national nightmare continues, and the theocrats are winning.

This Valedictorian Was Kicked Out of His Christian Parents’ Home for Being Gay

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Education, Family, Harm, Homosexual, News, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 13:21

When Seth Owen was a high school sophomore, his father found out Seth was gay… and he was quickly sent to a counselor (for conversion therapy).

“They made it clear the intention was to make me straight. (That) was their end goal.”

It didn’t work. Seth was still gay. (Shocking!) For a couple of years, this is what life was like until his parents realized Seth was still gay despite their best efforts to turn him straight. Their church didn’t help either, since the pastor was one of those conservative, anti-women’s rights, anti-gay types. Seth asked if they could attend a different church, but that plea went nowhere.

Elections matter and make a big difference. Bigotry is alive and well in the christian community in Tennessee.

Some of the information at the link.

Remember Jeff Amyx, the Tennessee hardware store owner who put up a sign saying “No Gays Allowed” in his window back in 2015?

He just put the sign back up again after the SCOTUS ruling in favor of the Colorado baker who refused to make a cake for a same-sex wedding:

He told WBIR that he was celebrating a “win” after the Supreme Court narrowly ruled in favor of a Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple…

“Christianity is under attack. This is a great win, don’t get me wrong, but this is not the end, this is just the beginning,” he said. “Right now we’re seeing a ray of sunshine. This is ‘happy days’ for Christians all over America, but dark days will come.”
