This is prompted by an avalanche of site visits yesterday [900+] from anti-Gay schismatic secessionists trying to steal Episcopal Church property, who clicked here from a site called StandFirm, which responded to my previous post, NYT: Evangelical Crackup, Terry Fox in a Best Western. Someone calling herself “Bigmama” observed that “to the (religious) left, it’s all about dick.” I guess she thought this was criticism.
Honey, you got it right; the difference is that real men, Gay and Straight, know they’ve got dick. In Viagraville, they’re scared they don’t got it. So they bully each other.
Greg Griffith and Matt Kennedy are frequent posters and perhaps co-owners of StandFirm, LLC. I don’t know these guys, so OCICBW.
“StandFirm,” which purports to be a Christian website, deserves its dickless epithet, since over half its posts (and even more of its comments) are rants about Gay people. Let’s review:
“Man up, Greg Griffith. Real men don’t spend a minute’s thought on homosexuals. Real men have self-confidence. They’re secure in who they are and what they do. They don’t worry or compare themselves to other guys. Real men don’t spend all day and night blogging about Gays. Real men live and let live.”
Real men don’t tell each other to man up; real men respect each other. Real men who hear some guy try to insult their masculinity know that they’re not the ones with the problem; he is.
Most victims of homophobia are Straight men who allow bullies like Griffith to dictate their behavior. As every woman knows, a lot of men get very insecure. Griffith loves to take advantage of that. He thinks it gives him power. Obviously he needs a little boost. A pill maybe?
Someone please notify Matt Kennedy that the Roundheads are dead. So is his message about “God’s wrath at man’s depravity.” Read the polls.
Interestingly, the study discovered a new image that has steadily grown in prominence over the last decade. Today, the most common perception is that present-day Christianity is “anti-homosexual.” Overall, 91% of young non-Christians and 80% of young churchgoers say this phrase describes Christianity. As the research probed this perception, non-Christians and Christians explained that beyond their recognition that Christians oppose homosexuality, they believe that Christians show excessive contempt and unloving attitudes towards gays and lesbians. One of the most frequent criticisms of young Christians was that they believe the church has made homosexuality a “bigger sin” than anything else. Moreover, they claim that the church has not helped them apply the biblical teaching on homosexuality to their friendships with gays and lesbians.
And here’s an interesting observation:
The new study shows that only 3 percent of 16- to 29-year-old non-Christians express favorable views of evangelicals. This means that today’s young non-Christians are eight times less likely to experience positive associations toward evangelicals than were non-Christians of the Boomer generation (25 percent).
Now all of you who are professional statisticians and pollsters, feel free to attack the moderate Christian Barna Group for “flawed methodology” and “being in league with apostate priestesses like Mrs. Schori.”
(The Rt. Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori, a marine biologist with a Ph.D., is Presiding Bishop of the mainstream Episcopal Church. Many of the LimpDicks refuse to acknowledge that she’s even ordained because she doesn’t have a, well, you know…)
You are so predictable and so delusional; you remind me of the scene in “Gone with the Wind” where Southern women turn over the last of their jewelry, when it’s already clear that the South is a lost cause.
I don’t endorse everything +Katharine says or does; but I do know that when you pick a smart, tough, soft-spoken woman as your general, you don’t get taunted into unnecessary wars—much less a little boy’s pissing contest.++
