This afternoon, Jeremy Hooper over at Good As You provided us with some more wise words from Matt Barber and Rev. Jerry Falwell, Jr.:
Let’s take a look at some of their tidbits of wisdom…
If they’re against gay marriage they get called homophobic.
How can you be against gay marriage if you actually understand and respect same-sex orientations and relationships? Did it ever occur to you that you vilify yourselves every time you open your mouths?
We’re not anti-anybody. We love the sinner, hate the sin.
Then you don’t get it. You’re still demonizing and condemning what you believe is a lifestyle and what we know is our lives.
Even if you don’t believe the Bible, there’s [sic] other reasons to be supportive of laws that support marriage between one man and one woman. It’s what liberty is all about.
Liberty is about taking people’s rights away? Limiting people’s freedom? Really? And what are those other reasons?
The reason we’re against gay marriage is because it starts us down a slipper slope… polygamy, bestiality, I mean, where do you stop?
People need to understand we’re not directly comparing homosexuality to bestiality, to incest, but, any type of sexual behavior outside of the bonds of marriage between one man and one woman, according to scripture, is sexual immorality, is sexual sin. And so, in that regard, those are all sexual immorality, they’re all sexual sin. Certainly they’re different behaviors, but they are all a sin. We’re not equating it, but where do you draw the line?
You don’t. You don’t draw that line. Look up “slippery slope.” It’s a fallacy. I mean, it’s just automatically wrong if that’s the argument you make. Do you get how stupid you sound? Take a logic class. Take a writing class. Join a debate team. I don’t know, learn something. Just because you like your own “truth” better doesn’t mean truth isn’t truth.
More importantly, do you understand how hurtful such words are? Yes, we bloggers will respond, because we care about supporting people who are struggling. What do you care about other than your own hateful righteousness?
