Religions Not Accepting of Everybody

Seriously?  Is anyone else really sick and tired of the double standard?

No, I still think we have a ways to go. The religious community, we respect religion, and we want people to have their religion and also not change religions, but we want people to be accepting of everybody. So I think the religious community and the sports community, between the two, I think those are two of the last closets in America, two of the last places where people are accepted.

Christians are generally accepting of every PERSON - not such much every BEHAVIOR.  We are called to tell it like it is - even if not PC.

Of course, the Islamists are even more welcoming, right?  http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2013/05/07/mass-exodus-christians-from-muslim-world/

We only allow sinners in our church.

“but we want people to be accepting of everybody. ” This is a disingenuous statement. What is REALLY meant (and what B. Hunter alluded to) is that the church should receive every kind of behavior as acceptable. The problem here is obvious - the Christians guide to morality is the Bible, NOT whatever happens to be deemed currently acceptable to society at large.

The current American arbiters of socially accepted mores - the MSM & Hollywood in particular - will not accept that fact, so they either ignorantly (or willingly in many cases) choose to ignore it. Since liberal America is now quite Biblically illiterate, they simply demonize Christians. After all, what is wrong with homosexuality [keep your religion out of my bedroom]? Or abortion [keep your religion off my body]? As this darnel of moral relativism spreads, other abominations must follow. Why forbid incest, bestiality, the killing of the elderly and infirm? On the basis of WHOSE morals? Not those of the church or that silly old book of fables, the Bible.

“Can a throne of destruction be allied with You,
One which devises mischief by decree?” No it can’t - so Christians will be considered evil outlaws, even though we are the salt & light of society. Corruption & darkness can never have fellowship with salt & light. 

Thanks be to God, as He will certainly judge all iniquity - or perhaps, give more room for repentance.
