This happens quite often to me, although I generally just ignore them and move along. But, I figured this time, I would share a few things that made me go "huh?"...
1) Biracial Baby to Lesbian White Parents:
We still live in a society where homosexuality is not the norm (in fact, it is still considered a sin by many Christians, and just taboo or wrong by many non-Christians). However, apparently, it is equally horrible to be of a different race. It seems, a Caucasian lesbian white couple wanted a child. They picked out the sperm donor - a good looking, successful white male (or, so the profile at the sperm bank stated), and one proceeded to get pregnant and have the baby.
The baby which arrived was bi-racial (apparently, the person read the profile number wrong and sent out the wrong vial). So, this intelligent white lesbian couple decided to sue. They were not happy they didn't get what they had ordered. But the main reason they gave for why they're angry and suing for so much money? The child will grow up picked on for being biracial, and because the parents don't know how to take care of her hair.
2) Give Him Sex Whenever He wants It!
So, I'm sure many of you have heard of the Duggars - 19 and counting (very large family). Anyway, this family has some very strong Christian values. And, some that just make me go... ummm... huh?
When one of their daughters is allowed to start dating, the father is the one who selects a potential partner. There is, understandably, no sex until marriage. However, there is also no kissing, no hand-holding, and all dates are chaperoned. Ok, I get it - trying to minimize temptation. Sex is something for within the confines of marriage, and holding hands can get hot and heavy pretty quickly.
But... within the confines of marriage... the Duggar girls are taught that whenever their husband is in the mood, it doesn't matter how she feels. She is to give it up. There are no headaches. No excuses.
Yeah... sorry... I've written on this one before and well, while I recognize the importance of sex in a marriage, and I know the scripture on your body belongs to him, his to you (I'd look it up and quote it accurately, but I like giving my readers something to do - or something to complain about). But if a woman (or man) is not in the mood for sex, then no. You cannot have loving, intimate, physical relations if one of you is not feeling well, or just not in the mood, or is too tired.
3) "Burn the Gays!" says the divorced mother sleeping with her ex-husband's coworker and his best friend.Ok, so I didn't exactly hear or read that specifically. However, I have read repeatedly article after article condemning homosexuals. The reasons cited - it is Biblically wrong! It's an abomination! It is living in sin, and continuing to live in sin.
And yet, these same people who yell the loudest about how wrong it is, ignore divorce being wrong... ignore that premarital sex is wrong. Many of them continue to live in their own sins. We are told by Jesus that whoever divorces and remarries, is committing adultery. So almost every re-married person (or divorced but sleeping with someone else) is continuing to live in sin. I'd almost say what they are doing is actually worse (although, a good friend told me there are no better or worse sins...) than being homosexual considering Jesus himself spoke of this topic.
Seriously, before you begin screaming about the immorality and sinfulness of another, take a good long look in the mirror. Please.
God bless you all!
