Newsweek, Christianity and Gay Marriage

What he said.

I absolutely loathe when someone assumes they understand my faith, defines it for me and then spits it back out against her own prejudices, just to prove her point.  Lisa Miller’s evident hostility towards Christianity can’t seem to be bound by a journalist’s mandate to present information with as little bias as possible.  She didn’t quite manage to get there:

Jesus himself was single and preached an indifference to earthly attachments—especially family.

Seriously, Lisa, you got it all wrong.  Dead wrong.  Indifference my cat.  Jesus taught the proper order of all relationships, putting the most important first.  Did he teach indifference toward earthly relationships?  Not even remotely.  If this weren’t such a serious matter I would be laughing hysterically.  As it stands, I’m disgusted.

I might, someday, address the issue of gay marriage.  As it relates to Christianity there can be no question.

I think she has only ever read sloppy cliff’s notes written by someone who has only ever read sloppy cliff’s notes.  It’s like she didn’t even try to get it right.  Like, well, like she had a bias and a bent to write the story to stregnthen her position. What is that?  Hmm.

Hopefully I’ll post supporting scriptures later this evening.

    She’s the religion reporter? Great.

    How can someone read the bible and think Jesus is indifferent toward family?

    Gosh, Ms. Miller doesn’t even make at least a half-hearted attempt to get it right. Of course scripture often becomes a tool to attempt to prove one’s pov, if one is very selective and dishonest in how they use it that is.

    Ms. Miller neatly ignores all of the very specific teachings and admonitions re the family and marriage that Jesus makes, as well as not taking on St. Paul (which shows she has at least some smarts). All in all, manipulative and self-deceived – iow, what one would expect from a ‘Religion’ reporter.

    I find it hard to believe that anyone spending any time at all reading the Gospels could call Jesus indifferent toward anything. I mean, he’s God and all, he has deep opinions, thoughts and preferences about everything.
