    It might represent a tiny, tiny bit of progress, but I don't trust them at all.

    Everyone has thier interpretation of it. I believe Abbun made me whatever i am today , proudly a christian just as i am a good child to my abba and a lover who loves men , whats the difference , and those who love have Elah within them , thats what yeshua preached

    fuck with torah and pauline books of OT and NT

    god loves me, that's why i am alive , everyone knows what all have i been through in past

    Agreed. This is "rebranding" and has more to do with marketing than genuine change. But we should wait and see what follows.

    Does God look like this? If that's the case, then I'm a believer.

    This is a just BS move by the religious right.
    They can read the polls.
    They know that a large majority of the country supports gay marriage now.
    They're just trying to position the Repub party as less homophobic in order to try to win elections.

    We know how they really feel about gay Americans.

    If man was made in gods image, then doesn't that mean that LGBTQ people were made in his image as well? If Jesus died for everybody's sins, then doesn't that mean that he died for gay people, too? Simple logic, and simple contradiction.

    Regardless of their exact motives, if evangelical Christians are becoming less homophobic, isn't that a good thing regardless?

    Logic? Probably only a Jesuit could find logic in religion.

    I think they realized that they've almost lost this particular battle in their "culture war" and now it's about how will they be remembered by history. They're trying to not have people look at them 20 years from now the way people tend to view those who obstruct human rights/dignity.

    I'm afraid that if he didn't lower his brief like he did an untrained eye could see those hypertrophied lats as love handles. icon_eek.gif
