How Christian

"Your family does not meet the policies of admission."

What a bloody shame!

That's so sad.
Makes me wonder many other families are engaged in so-called "immoral" behavior such as drinking, adultery, gambling...etc Is the school prepared to kick them out as well?

The Scarlet Pervygirl said...

Of course not. Ignoring for the moment the fact that there's nothing wrong with marrying someone of the same gender as yourself, is the school prepared to pass judgment on whether it's okay to ask your child, "Why can't you be more like your brother?", or to inform them that your love is contingent upon good grades? Those are horrible, horrible things to do, but they're not regulable, because they're privately done.

Gender is just a little more publicly obvious. That's all.

This world is in such a sorry place right now, it overwhelms me. It feels almost apocolyptic. And damned sorrowful.

Who the hell are these sinless bastards (yeah right) to be judging others?

Absolutely a sick sign of our times. Since the Bush administration this country has gone back a CENTURY!!

Just know that I would stand beside you and fight until I was raw with blood. I believe in equal rights for EVERYONE!

"There's still time to change."

Yeah, good luck with that. Where do these people come from?

I wonder why I just don't stick my head in the sand and pretend I am the only person in the world. This is getting to be too much. It just hurts.

It is morons like Chosen and the principal in Ontario that make Christians look more like Al-Quida than a follower of Christ. He hung around with prostitutes, he washed the feet of beggars and he healed the sick. It doesnt say anything anywhere about Jesus stoning or shunning anyone for their behavior EXCEPT the moneylenders and self-righteous in the TEMPLE.
If you truly believe that homosexuality is a sin, as a follower of Jesus you should not be upset because God will forgive all sins if they are repented AT ANY TIME. And even if it is a sin, it's not a sin against YOU.
Certainly, you are absolutly free to wear a cross on your t-shirt or speak the word of god on school campuses.
Dont add lying to your sins of intolerance, bigotry and hatred.
You are not allowed to use school property to preach the word of God to those who dont want to listen, or to form clubs which exclude other people based on their religion, gender, etc.
Ironically, you would still have your school prayer and a lot more freedom to preach to the "unsaved" if you hadnt spent so much time shoving your religion down everyone's throat and being decidedly Unchristian to those who didnt believe as you do.
While you are correct that any private school has the right to make any arbitrary rule and enforce said rule, you will never convince non-Christians that the Word of God is anything other than crap if you continue to treat non-Christians like scum.
If I were in this school, I would've pulled my child out faster than you can say "I have morals that I live by."

That Girl,

While I completely concur with you regarding the hypocrisy and judgmental attitude of certain "Christians" like The Chosen, you DO realize that many lesbians identify as Christian, don't you?

"...if you are in our world then you must abide by our rules." I can't imagine a much less Christian attitude. Nor a more ignorant one.

Whinger said...

There's still so many civil rights battle to much hatred in the world. It makes me weary at times.
Let he is without sin cast the first stone.

I vote for facetious on the chosen.

Doesn't change the initial point of sharing this article: Christianity has many faces. Which one is the real one?

According to his/her blogger profile, one of the chosen's favorite books is Price of Salt.

Um, you do know that's a lesbian novel, don't you, chosen?

Wen, I do know that. One of my development clients is a temple for Jewish people who are homosexual. The problem (as I see it) is that most other people, whether Jewish or Chirstian dont include anyone in their narrow definition of believers and that many people who worship either have to be circumspect in sharing personal details or start their own temple/church. Religion should be inclusive.

Wait . . . I think I missed the part about the shoe . . .

Katie said...

I *knew* when I saw "27 comments" I didn't want to look, but I did.

Wow, you really got the fire going on this one, and all with one little link!

We talked about critical thinking in my class today, and pretty much everyone of my 18 year old students concurred that dogmatic black & white beliefs or a failure to see nuances in any situation indicate a pretty low level of critical thinking on an issues.

I think that's all I need to say.

Suzanne said...

Aren't we fortunate the chosen is sharing his thoughts.

Two sides to every coin. Except when it's not a coin at all. It's a pink lucite twenty-sided die and no matter which number it lands on, thirty frothing orcs will fill the room intent on separating you from your gold.

We can all co-exist. If we'd all just respect each other.


Katie said...

I'm so sorry, Suzanne.
