One man. One woman. One sandwich. Can somebody please
get her an apron?
Sadly, he doesn't come with
Zipporah and the Ethiopian woman
that he married. Then it really would
be an "action" figure!
Psalmist? Rapper? What's the difference?
the psalmist, the man after God's own heart, David had at least eight wives and yet more concubines! Geez! It's like a late 90s rap video! As a child, I hated sharing my toys with the bratty girls on the playground. That said, I'm glad that our view of "traditional marriage" has at least changed from the days of the Pentateuch.
I also think it's important to point out that Jesus never mentioned anything about homosexuality. Additionally, many of the types of people Jesus would have been hanging out with during his time on earth were the ones the church shunned, and still shun today. Just a note.
As a conservative:
Generally, Republicans are for limited government. I don't understand, then, how most Republicans can want so strongly for government to come barging into the love lives and bedrooms of law abiding, American citizens. "Come on in, Senator! Do you want to join us or just watch for the first round? Pull up a chair if you like, we're gonna be at this for a while. . . ." So many people bring it back to our country being founded on Christian beliefs, yet more than that it was founded on the idea that a person holds certain rights and freedoms (life, liberty, pursuit of happiness stuff). Why are we trying to limit those freedoms to a certain group of people? It's similar to the racist and sexist laws of America's dark past. Blacks can't eat here or use this drinking fountain. Women can't vote. Gays shouldn't be allowed to get married or raise kids. Our laws on marriage have changed many times and in many ways, just as our laws on women and people of color have changed. Women are no longer property of their husbands, divorce is legal and even common, people aren't required to marry according to social class or standing, people aren't betrothed at age 12, etc.
