The militant wing of the Salvation Army called up for service? Jesus this is not good news

Diogenes    [TotalFark]  
The Salvation Army's "Position Statement" on homosexuality, found on its Web site, reads in part: "The Salvation Army does not consider same-sex orientation blameworthy in itself. Homosexual conduct, like heterosexual conduct, requires individual responsibility and must be guided by the light of scriptural teaching. Scripture forbids sexual intimacy between members of the same sex. The Salvation Army believes, therefore, that Christians whose sexual orientation is primarily or exclusively same-sex are called upon to embrace celibacy as a way of life."

What a crock of shiat. If you believe it's a sin, it's a sin. Whether a sin in the mind or a sin in the flesh is irrelevant.

If you believe gays are sinners, then at least be consistent with your ideals. Don't do a carve out because you think gay sex is icky. "We hate gays but we can deal if they just remain invisible."

I could be wrong, but from what I gathered, they say that being homosexual is in our human nature; it is choice of intimacy that the SA says they have a problem with.

If that is true, I still be ya they are full of bigots who would shun a homosexual who was still celibate.

So, being gay isn't necessarily bad, just having gay sex is bad?

Am I expected to be alone forever, then? That would be very kind of them.

Since we in America culturally descend from the English, I shall take a look into their past.

I do not know much about early christianity, but I think that European culture played a big role when many became Christians. When Christianity came to England, the English fit christianity in a lot of their former heathen rituals like Easter. They adopted Christianity but still kept significant pre-church rules.

I am uncertain of homosexuality and the English viewpoint at that time, so I can only speculate. It is possible that I am wrong, but if homosexuality was severely looked down upon when christianity came to England, it could explain why we Americans are that way. We just refit our culture upon the Christian laws.

Bigoted Christians didn't have to do as much work in the past. Society and regular bigotry kept homosexuals out of the mainstream. As society softened, the Christians were left with the dirty work of discrimination.

And hell it ain't even given that. Given that wearing a cotton-poly blend was a captial crime under Levitical Jewish law, it is no sillier to interpret "liest not with a man as with a woman" to be some prohibition on spooning, or having anal with women. It's pretty non-specific to base 4,000 years of hate off of. Especially since several of the cultures we filtered those instructions through, had strict porhibtions against homosexuality, but were totally okay with a man farking another man-which wasn't considered gay to them. The rule was you couldn't take an equal-status/age/rank male as your exclusive lover-mostly because that stopped you from doing your duty to the state in the "creating future citizens and heirs" department. But just having sex? Not only condoned but actively encouraged in some Greek cultures like Sparta's

Homosexuality is a great sin because its social acceptance opens the door to acceptable non-procreative, non-married sex. As long as religions control sex and marriage, they can influence younger generations, which is the only way to maintain their flock.

In other words, homosexuality is a great sin because it threatens the power of the church, not because of the bible. Sexual orientation didn't even exist as a concept until the late 1800s. The bible was written by people far too simplistic to understand something as complex as human sexuality.

Actually, this has to do with a strongly anti-sex, period, strain of thought that has permeated Christianity since Paul showed up. He believed he was part of a doomday cult that wouldn't survive more than a single generation so he saw no point in people getting married, having kids, etc when the world was about to be wiped in during the second coming. Still, he allowed, that if a man simply COULDN'T control his sexual urges "it is better to marry than burn" (Adding his overt contempt for women, his obsession with sexuality, the fact that he travelled with two different longtime male companions (Luke and Timothy) and his mysterious references to his own "affliction"-it wouldn't be hard to make the case that St. Paul was a self-hating closet case). The ball was carried further by St Augustine, who'd lived an early life fullof debauchery of every kind, and like a reformed alcoholic who starts a temperance movement, decided that the body and all its pleasures were necessarily evil.

This led, in the early middle ages to a Pope (Slyvester or Sixtus perhaps?) decalring that ALL sex was sinful, straight or gay, married or otherwise. However he did allow that sex undertaken for the purposes of procreation was merely a venial sin, but sex for fun was always a mortal one.

Which is what I find Ironic about many of the current feverently anti-gay crusaders in the Christian church. The logic behind thier condemenation of Gay sex, once applied equally to what they did in THEIR bedrooms with their wives as well, but they seem to ignore that bit.

Christians in general have always had a weird obsession with sex, not just teh ghey sex. I remember the old days of church camp...boys and girls couldn't swim together (perish the thought!), so when one gender was swimming the other was in bible study. And of course, with all the boys together what did we always talk about? SEX. Dirty, sinful, wrong, immoral sex that will send you straight to hell, boy.

Yes and no. You are correct that, say, the Catholic position on birth control is deeply rooted in these doctrines, but even they have come around to the idea that married sex for non-procreative purposes is okay and even allow one method of Bith control (the Rythym method ie predicting when woman is ovulating and not having sex then-a technique even my Catholic RN mom disparagingly called "playing Vatican roulette")

Well, historically, homosexuality wasn't always a sin. Early Catholicism had no position on it and priests even officiated over ceremonies for gay couples. There were openly gay members of The Church.

I read a paper highlighting that the Church's position changed during a decline in living population and an increase in infant mortality. The paper also showed the Church's position on contraception change during that same period.

The authors argued that the change was based on the desire to grow the population quickly. It's an argument that certainly makes sense. The needs of a society often dictate that society's ethical and moral code. History is full of cases in which common beliefs, laws, and ethics were quickly tossed aside during periods of change within that society.

That doesn't seem fair. I wouldn't say they were far less intelligent than modern-day humans. They lacked many of the tools required to analyze human behaviors, but it's genuinely not all that hard to understand.

People with first-hand knowledge of and serious contact with gays and lesbians at the time had enough information to intuit that orientation isn't exactly a higher-order cognitive function. It's not like they could just up and decide not to be gay. They instead chose to blame it on evil supernatural reasons, like leprosy and devastating floods. What modern-day Christians seem too simplistic to realize is that Jesus never healed anyone of the gay, and taught us to love one another truly and deeply.

He showed that some things like hunger and sickness we're empowered to fix, the rest we must love and accept as part of God's creation.
