I’m so tired of lemmings like Franklin Graham who I consider a fraud, him and his cowardly pops. They’re always arguing about sin. what is sin? Show from your bible one scripture that defines sin…I’ll wait…still waiting. Since most won’t tell you or can’t tell you, I will. 1Jn3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. The second question, what is the law; his word. The 913 presets no one teaches and for good reason. You can begin to see the utter ridiculousness this is. What bothers me, Franklin comments on a movie he hasn’t seen. He trivializes the life of a young man name Chiron who has to deal with a drug addicted Mother and him being confused about why kids are picking on him calling him a faggot at around the age of 7.  In England a cigarette is known as a faggot(just saying). He moves on up through to his middle years to adult hood. As an adult he gets into the trap game(selling drugs) as transforming his body and mind to be strong in order to never be weak again. The story is somewhat of a true story, the parts about his mother and gayness. Blacks represent a certain sphere of gay men, we can’t hide from it. What I don’t understand is the weapon of the bible that is so regularly chosen to prove a point. Watch Moonlight for what it is, a complicated love story of people trying to figure out life and its meaning an how to maneuver and guard themselves.

We have confusing ideas about sex and what sex is. We have preferences, mine happens to be with a woman. I refuse to use ideas of not having a women to populate with. If you look to the bible and the gospel according to Paul, sex wasn’t for enjoyment, it was for the purpose of giving birth and populating. Again society has to be looked at for it dictates the morals, not the bible. The bible through high minded thinking can be a good thing. However it can’t be made to be superior to the people who don’t believe in it. Many people believe different things in many ways. If you look at it carefully, don’t all the Abrahamic religions believe pretty much the same thing? Also look at all other religions they have moral codes as well. Sorry but the bible can’t be looked to for sex, a first century standard compared to a twenty first century standard. Even if we look at their standard for homoeroticism , it is viewed differently. It was about dominance. When I say it was about dominance I’m speaking of sexual conquest either by the female or male. Sex within that culture was myopic centered. It was frowned upon to be weak. The dominate person has to always be on top. When it comes to women being viewed in a certain light. The fullness of that is for another day. Theirs a lot of inconsistencies where that is involved.

Within the bible people chose what they want to believe. As I’ve said in the past “people derive our values form scripture but live by the values they insert.” This is not an odd statement. People chose the lives they want to live and justify it by their personal convictions. They put personal interpolations instead of following the holy writ. Stop using the guise of the bible, we have no idea how/why people are the way they are. I accept you as you are and what you do in your bedroom is your private business, nothing more. In writing this only the surface is being scratched in which we can have a proper conversation. These differences will be debated till the sun turns cold. Allow me this caveat, differing views are a must to have proper dialogue, same with interracial relationships. All the same, just a different con.

We can’t contend without the homoerotic story of David and Jonathan. This story proves problematic, especially within the looking on ones nakedness. Scholars debate wether the story is a homoerotic act or not. All I will say is, if it took place in todays context it would be considered a relationship between two men. Except the story takes place during a different time when sexuality is viewed differently. Read 1Sam chapters 18, 19, 20 for yourself. I’ll leave with this to show my meaning of comparing something that was written for a different time for a different group, think on it and ponder it. 2Sam1:26 I grieve for you, Jonathan my brother; you were very dear to me. Your love for me was wonderful, more wonderful than that of women.

This has to be said, “Franklin Graham is a very ignorant uniformed voter!” Their I said it and meant it. If you vote for biblical principles you need to move and start your own country. Who said, god told him to go into Afghanistan; George Bush! Please keep religion out of the voting process. You can fight for moral issues, but don’t sucked into voting for someone cause they say they believe in a personal Jesus. You be for bombing innocent children in another country and for the sanctity of life at the same time. 

…no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”

The last thing I will say about Frank is, that he’s misappropriating scripture for his personal use. What is a scriptural definition of sin

1 John 3:4King James Version (KJV)

4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

Its not as simplistic as Frank makes it out to seem. What are his laws and commandments that he wants kept?

While on his Decision America tour, the Rev. Franklin Graham urged Christians to get out and vote “for candidates who uphold biblical principles.”

Charisma News reports that Graham’s nationwide tour stopped in Denver on Tuesday where Graham spoke to around 10,000 people.

“I want to strongly urge Christians to run for public office at every level,” said Graham, as he urged Christians to work to have a political presence in their neighborhoods and in the nation in general.

Graham said in an interview with CBN News that he believes both the Democratic and Republican parties are broken, and he is no longer affiliated with the Republican party, but he urged Christians to vote for candidates who best support biblical principles.

Graham has also started a pledge that Christians can sign to commit to God as well as their country.

“America is at a moral tipping point,” Graham told the crowd in Denver. “Our jobs as Christians is to make the impact of Christ felt in every phase of life: religious, social, economic and political.”

Graham also made reference to the story of Nehemiah in the Bible; a story which he believes parallels what is happening in America today.
