Attention all LGBTs who believe Chick-Fil-A and Christians are hate-mongers

Attention all LGBTs who believe Chick-Fil-A and Christians are hate-mongers who fear and hate LGBTs: We all have the tendency to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season, but why encourage people to indulge in them? I know how much sexual pleasure can be enjoyed…I’m no prude, and neither are most Christians. In fact, we may have enjoyed more pleasures of sin for a season than you have….some Christians were real freaks you know, or do you? Perhaps you don’t. Anyways, we don’t fear anyone but God and we love you guys, we do not hate you. We are hungry beggars who have found the Bread of Life: Jesus Christ, and we

St. Augustine

happily tell others who are hungry where this Bread can be found. Sin is pleasurable….for a while, and then it leaves you empty inside, hungry for love. Only the love on God in Christ Jesus – who gave his life for us and took it up again – can satiate this hunger. “Our hearts are restless until they rest in you Lord” ~ St. Augustine (who lived a pretty raucous life, sexually, before he began following Jesus. Read his book: Confessions.

    AJ, the hatemongering moniker you are defending against here might indeed be hyperbolic, although I think it is safe to say that most of us have seen images of so-called Christian wielding “I Hate Fags” signs and such. I am not a Christian, but I understand its tenets. The real issue many people have with Christians is hypocrisy. Everyone knows that Christians believe the bible to be inspired by God, and that it is to be taken (literally) as Gospel. The problem (without resorting to theist v. atheist rhetoric) is that everyone also knows that the bible not only preaches non-judgment (because that’s God’s job) and forgiveness (because that’s everybody’s job), there is a lot of judgment going on. And you can say that all of this stems from some sense of overflowing love for the sinner’s soul, but the vitriol is too much for anyone to buy that line. This is self-righteous, “I’m right, and you’re wrong,” under the guise of “He’s right, and you’re wrong. I just fear for your soul,” but nobody buys that line of reasoning because by and large it is disingenuous.

    As I said, I don’t want to make this an atheist v. theist debate, so I’ll just end here.

    • The Westboro Baptist “God hates fags people” tell the truth, but the truth is simply too ugly for most people to face. The gospel requires the bad news first, then the good news: God commands all to repent or perish because we are the enemies of God and his anger is kindled against us because of our sins. He hates us and our sin. But, while we were enemies and sinners he demonstrated his love toward us in that Christ died for us and reconciled us unto God.

      God himself drowns every living thing

      “The LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the LORD was sorry that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart. So the LORD said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens, for I am sorry that I have made them.” ~ Genesis 6:5-7

      Repent or Perish

      There were some present at that very time who told him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And he answered them, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans, because they suffered in this way? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish. Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them: do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others who lived in Jerusalem? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.” ~ Luke 13:1-5

    AJ, I’ll respond to each of these in turn:

    1). Where does it say anywhere in the bible that God hates anything?
    2) That he is “sorry he made them” doesn’t mean he hates “them.”
    3) This is all well and good, but it does not change the fact that judgment is reserved for Him, in the fashion that “He who casts the first stone…,” and “Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?” and sp on.

    Sorry, but none of these gives licence to hate.
