is so closely tied with being bad at selling Liberty. Pushing ideals on people is certainly a turn off, and witnessing in that manner will go no where. Pot, homosexuality, and other social issues are talked about in the bible not so much in words, but in the actions of Jesus. Jesus did not burn the prostitute, he protected her and said "He who is free from sin, cast the first stone", which is much different then taking her child away, putting her in a cage, and throwing her in the well to die and burn in Hell for profit.
Homosexuality is also a topic I love discussing with those that feel they have the moral high ground, and speak for God himself when I ask what level of sin is homosexuality? Is it a 1 on God's chart equal with murder, or is it a 4 which God thinks is equal to say armed robbery, or spousal abuse? Again the story in the bible with the prostitute speaks volumes above and beyond scripture in the acts of God. God said in Hebrews 13.4 "Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral." Interesting it does not instruct his followers to be the judge of things be it an adulterer, or homosexual, nor does it go into specifics of gay marriage or sexual acts of homosexuals, this is because it is not for us to judge, lest ye be judged yourself.
While it is understandable that the author is rejected here, as many I speak with feel that the right abandoned God for power, power in the political arena to force their moral "judgement" on others and not so much law. The government loved this as their for profit schemes flow, and greed and corruption followed. I see both sides of the coins, those that attack Mr. inconspicuously named "UnderGod", and fail to realize that he/she is trying to do good, but is a touch pushy on his/her beliefs, and those that do not believe or have a differing faith that cannot get along with him/her. I think no matter if there is or is not a God we should love one another, we should keep our personal beliefs to ourselves unless someone seeks our expertise, and we should learn by the Christian Gods beliefs that we are all children of the earth, and we can choose whether to be good people, or to be bad people, no matter the opinions of others do no harm, help others when you can, and accept the different ideals of others, but do not push them or else you will be miserable and alone.
