:’) Yes. Yes. I absolutely love this man.
Anonymous asked: i dont think anyone is disallowing the Boy Scouts from following their policies. No one is stopping them. It's just that people are withdrawing their support and airing criticisms. Also, if you don't mind I just had some hypotheticals if you have time to answer? If you were a governor, would you veto a bill legalizing same-sex marriage? Would you veto a bill legalizing adoption by gay couples? What would you say to your child if he/she were gay?
No, no one is disallowing them, I agree. But what is happening is that they are now being pressured to turn their back on morality and core principals of which they have held for a long time.
Whether or not a company agrees with their policy, that doesn’t have to dictate how said company treats them.
Hypotheticals: (1) I would not legalize a bill on same-sex marriage if it does not have over 60% favorability in the state. There are 2 types of ways elected leaders govern in a Representative Republic like we have in the United States. (a) By reflecting perfectly the constituents (therefore putting aside their beliefs and acting as Delegate of the people. The other (b) is for the elected leader to act as a Trustee - where the political leader uses his own judgement to do what is best for the people; after all, they elected him to make those decisions based off his policies. As Governor I would have been elected as a conservative voice and therefore would exercise said judgement as a trustee. I would not purely do my work as a trustee (I believe pure trustee-ism is foolish) but if the measure/bill had 60%+ support, I would do the will of the people and allow it to pass (or sign it into law). While I take this decision, I still would not do it willfully but would need some time to consider… God held the Kings of Israel responsible for the moral decay of society.
(2) See above response.
(3) I would say that I love them dearly, with all my heart… but I do not agree with their lifestyle. I would show them why, i the Bible, and through reasoning (they go hand in hand) why I believe what I believe and why I am steadfast in doing so. Would I change my mind on the votes (as you called for in the first 2 questions), absolutely not.
Recently 2 Republican congressmen changed their minds on gay marriage because their children came out as gay, and thats fine but I find that a weak reason for doing so. Check out this article by Dennis Prager “Even if your Child is gay.”
I offer the single most politically incorrect statement a modern American — indeed a modern Westerner, period — can make: I look first to the Bible for moral guidance and for wisdom.

Twenty-first century America is a merit-based culture. As a free society, we function on social and economic models of competition and strive to prove ourselves better than those around us. We are bred to compete and often judge one another almost exclusively on a value basis…As American Christians, if we fail to form our identity in God’s love for us, we will default to finding our identity by comparing ourselves to others. When we deploy these false moral and spiritual rating systems to credit and discredit the people around us, the result is a judgmental church.
So Fuckyeahreligionpigeon is about the most vile and hideous anti-Christian blog on Tumblr.
But instead of attacking these ignoramuses, lets bombard them with the love of Christ. Like, literally…
Anon or Not, lets CLICK HERE (or Title) and send them a “HAPPY EASTER” or “JESUS LOVE YOU!” via their ask or message.
Do It NOOOW!
I am so frustrated with the amount of christians who know nothing about why their faith’s [Doctrine] has always been implemented as such. Why even be a christian if you only do so on your terms? Start a cult, go somewhere else, make your own God… [just don’t bastardized Christianity].
