You should watch the cult of honesty

Jesus is going down. Sad, but true. … Well true anyway.

None of the “christians” should be saying *anything* about the homosexual
world. If they believe they’re an abomination because the bible says so and
that these people will be punished by god, the homosexual world is not
their problem.

The fact that they’re so bothered and protestant against them only shows:
1. How unfaithful they actually are, and 2. That they’re taking it
personally while christianity is about god, not them. Absolute hypocrisy on
two levels here.

Shaquille Dudley

Atheist: w- where am I? God: Your are in the presence of God, and your name is not found in the book of life, you have a life of unrepentant sin, thus you have no part in my kingdom. Atheist: …..I…I have lived a moral life…. God: You have done nothing for My kingdom, and nothing with My son Jesus, except mock His death! The very death that could have been your salvation. God: Your life was full of nothing but an obsession with sexual immorality, instead of an obsession with righteousness, you have much hate towards your family, your… Read more »

Evangelical Christians can open up and be inclusive to survive, or choose
to pander to a demographically shrinking, but passionate anti-gay members.
Very similar to Fox News, which is hemorrhaging younger viewers with
radical right wing viewpoints, and then have to double down being right
wing to keep the small audience they have.

I’ve got an even better idea. If you are a progressive person who thinks
women, gays, and atheists should have equal rights, then you should stop
calling yourself a Christian. Because the Bible is unequivocal on the
subject of all three- women are second-class citizens, completely
subservient to men, and gays and atheists are supposed to be killed for
their sins. If you don’t believe in that, you’re a decent human being who
is far more reasonable and moral than the hateful, ignorant, blood-thirsty
writers of the Bible.

Hement, what you are proposing is to be a slurr-Christian. The faith is not something that should be twisted around like that. I consider myself a very progressive Christian, and I believe that I AM on the right side. My town is a dry town, has many churches, and a lesbian mayor. I have no problem with gay people and I would welcome them into my church and to be a friend. But I will never support gay marriage, because that is an uncompromisable, deep-rooted, moral issue. I am all for equality and rights, and I believe any man has… Read more »

i gots a question; do you have any Christian friends?

cobinizer

No, no, no. Christians, stick to your guns. You know you can’t pick and
choose what god-given commands to follow. Don’t change anything. It’s a
win-win. You’ll go to heaven, and your church will fade into irrelevance
all the more quickly.

podoau

Excellent as usual

I’ll be happy when Christians admit that the whole noah / flood story is a
nonsense that never happened

Squid Jones

Ya but the problem for them, even if they are progressive-minded, is that
they’re tied to the religion and the book that says homosexuals should be
executed. There’s no way around it. Sucks to be them, I guess.

i am glad i live in a country where being gay is is normal. if somebody in
my country says he is gay, the answer is mostly oke, or something like: so
what? but if somebody says he dont like guys. peopl start calling that
person a hater, and selfish bastard. even ouwer richt-politick are pro gay
marrage. and why not. if you are against gays. you lose the ellection.(same
for health care).

my country you ask?
the netherlands

Bonwell Parker

The homophobia in churches is based in a two-step political strategy that
has been around far longer than Christianity. Create a disease, then sell
the cure. The more the rest of the world accepts homosexuality, the tighter
the bond becomes between the church and the parishioners they’ve terrified,
because they become the only salvation from The Gays.

These are the people of persecution complexes and martyrs—the more wrong
they appear to be, the more effective their strategy.

ChipArgyle

What is a progressive Christian other than someone who’s straying from the
dogma of their superstition religion? Or did someone officially update
their holy book without telling me?

bright dude

Who cares about gay marriage? stop talking about that nonsense.
Marriage is just outdated irrelevant meaningless tradition. No one needs it.
And why don’t you argue for polygamous marriage?
Christians will think that evolution and atheism is a gay conspiracy or
something.

GV511

this is unrelated,but i don’t know why gay people would still want to be
Christians.Gay people has always been discriminated against and killed
because of Christianity.But i guess they the need to hold on to the
biblical god,even though it says they should be stoned to death

dCoder

This is really silly, as an ex christian I can tell you that if one accepts
homosexuality as a christian then they mightaswell giveup faith
alltogether. there is absolutely no way for a christian (who lives by the
bible) to accept it. the bible mentions homosexuality as sin. it also sais
that one who accepts sin (does not hate sin) is not a follower of jesus dus
cannot be a christian.

vikipoyta

a video without dislikes!?! impossibru!!

craqqer

Christians will NEVER accept gay people. The bible says homosexuality is a
sin, and homosexuals don’t go to heaven. It also says at the end of the
bible that anyone who tries to change anything in the Bible will burn in
hell forever. Christians believe that if they accept gay people then they
are changing what the bible says and will burn forever. Its fucking stupid
but thats how Christianity works

Always remember that the US only lost like 2 major battles in Vietnam, yet
they lost the war.
Fundies are not playing to win battles, they are playing for territory:
Creationism in school, sabotaging public education, spreading confusion,
gaining political power, … They are doing frighteningly good on the
territory side of things.

andrew smith

well done again with this video. the world is changing from intolerance of
Gay Sex, to acceptance that there never was anything wrong with it in the
first place. 

Rene Roundthecorner

When you say “the majority of progressive christians still won’t [..]” at
2:49 this only applies to the USA. In Europe we don’t have those
controversies at all.
It is pretty common and easy to be an atheist in Germany. But I am very
biased, since I am a math student, and my social circle mostly consists of
math/physics/biology students

+The Atheist Voice Are you available for discussions/debates?

MESALLIS

Great video.

Martin Rayner

The simple explanation for why most evangelicals can’t get past this issue and move on to a more inclusive or tolerant approach is that it’s still good for business and a super tool for fundraising. Besides, if many of the leaders of this and other sects within the Christian faith didn’t have homosexuals to demonize, they’d have almost nothing to talk about (so it seems at times) and be left scrambling to find a new bogeyman to threaten and frighten their witless, deluded followers with. Plus, hating on gays dovetails almost perfectly with their deep, abiding and passionate loathing for… Read more »

Evangelical Christians’ Losing Battles

MISANTHROPIST JOE

Why do social media constantly try to persuade society/ christians into
accepting homosexuality? Homosexuality is not natural in my opinion.
There’s nothing important about being gay but, if you are then good for
you. Gays or homosexuals are people to; so treat them like you would want
to be treated. Stop emphazing on their sexual preference cause lets face
it; there are more important issues and concerns we all need to address.
Every time someone says something bad about gays it becomes a problem like
heterosexuals aren’t entitle to an opinion.

come to the dark side. we have homosexuality!

Don’t forget the “legitimate rape” debacle. That was a good one.

Hello ‘The Atheist Voice’
I must say, Christian’s stupid bible clearly states that homosexuality is a
sin and sin is wrong. So if you want Christians to accept Sin, you’re
essentially asking to pick and choosethings out of the bible, rather than
accepting it. Christianity is founded on homophobia and I don’t think you
understand that. There is no “progressive” Christian.. There is only one
who understands his/her faith is retarded but has been brainwashed to much
that they hang on to it, even though a majority of it is scientifically and
morally wrong.

Mick Attack

I like how often you post video.

Many Early churches were nothing like Evangelicals. Some were gnostic, others were downright humanist.
