Newsweek trashes Bible in support of Gay Marriage

UPDATE:
This now out from Newsweek. Maybe Ms. Miller is on her way out?


I got this email and as I did my research, I was appalled. For a group of people who don't believe in God, the Bible, or organized religion, the GLBT community sure is determined to excuse their lifestyle any way they can. They did a pretty pathetic job of it here. Miller is supposed to be a religion writer, but the only time I have ever heard the scriptures being twisted worse was here. She doesn't seem to have much theological knowledge going for her.

"Newsweek magazine has published a lengthy article stating that the Bible supports homosexual marriage. The article was written Lisa Miller, Newsweek religion editor.
Miller's article is one of the most biased and distorted pieces concerning homosexual marriage ever published by any major news organization. The article is much too long for this e-mail.
Dr. Albert Mohler has offered a response to the Newsweek article. I suggest you read Mohler’s article and then Miller's Newsweek article.
Mohler made a significant point in his response: "The national news media are collectively embarrassed by the passage of Proposition 8 in California. Gay rights activists are publicly calling on the mainstream media to offer support for gay marriage, arguing that the media let them down in November. It appears that Newsweek intends to do its part to press for same-sex marriage. Many observers believe that the main obstacle to this agenda is a resolute opposition grounded in Christian conviction. Newsweek clearly intends to reduce that opposition."

If that is the case, then this is just the beginning. Get on those websites and get commenting, friends!

Those types of articles in Newsweek are for non thinking people who have either never read the Bible or it was so long ago they have forgotten what it says.

I hope you don't sincerely believe that "the GLBT community" in its entirety "[doesn't] believe in God, the Bible, or organized religion"? That's painting with an awfully broad brush. Much like the heterosexual community, there are believers and non-believers alike.

Some people see the word of God as relevant to their lives while others don't.

Therese,
Exactly!

My comments are talking about the GLBT community as a whole. Yes that was painting with a broad brush. I admit that. However, in all my communication with the "militant gays" all over the internet, on MANY different news sites, blogs, video sites, etc., the prevailing opinion that has been shoved down my throat, using the most obscene language, has been that God doesn't exist and that those who believe in Him are stupid, $@#&*, *&%$#@, with no clue of the real world. So it goes both ways. Sorry if some of you GLBT friends were offended, but my opinions can only be based on my personal experience, and I have yet to come across a true God-fearing Christian gay person. I'm not saying that they don't exist - I'd love to meet one.

Laura,
I understand completely. My experience has been vastly different; I know many, which is why I wanted to point out the broad brush. With emotions running so high on both sides of this debate, I think it's important not to lump everyone on one side or another into broad categories, else each side runs the risk of dehumanizing the other. We are all humans, and individuals, before we are anything else.

I'm thrilled that you know some - ask them to please tell their fellows not to be so hateful, intolerant, and violent toward the religious right.

Laura,
Well, it's not like I'm the Pied Piper or anything, LOL but I do what I can to promote non-violent debate.
