Whores will enter the kingdom of heaven befopre CEO's
« on: January 23, 2012, 11:34:07 AM »
Rather, what I am trying to get across is that two people of the same gender can never engage in sex without sinning in the process, and to wish them well in their sin is no better than to hope for continued sin from anyone else.

No one can be baptized or confirmed Roman Catholic without taking up some erroneous doctrine in the process. And getting married Roman Catholic comes with the assurance, to the priest at least, that you will raise your children in Roman Catholicism. And after all, raising kids in godliness, not sex, is supposed to be the primary purpose of marriage. To wish someone well at his heterodox baptism/ confirmation/ wedding is therefore to condone heresy. Just send him a gift and a card instead.  

The difference is that if it were an Orthodox baptism/confirmation/wedding, there would of course be no problem.  There is no such Orthodox equivalent for a gay union, any more than there is a house blessing for a whorehouse.

Orthodox theology makes much of Christ blessing and sanctifying marriage by His Presence in Cana.  Just His mere presence.
You'd be surprised: they blessed brothels before in Romania (it was shown on tv). It's good for the business. I mean, I do not know if it's any different from blessing corporate offices etc.
and, yes, we know about your confusion about legitimate business and criminal activity.  Jobs and industry just pop out of nowhere in your workers' paradise.  Did they bless the Danube Canal?

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.

We all need Christ all the same. I also guarantee there are CEO's in heaven. I also guarantee that there are former prositiutes in heaven. Im not really thinking God checks the "occupation" line on the theosis application.

because no sin is involved in that occupation, in and of itself.  of course, the "Thou shall have no god before Me" "Thou shalt not steal," "Thou shalt not covet", the rich man and the camel etc. apply.

So I guess you're hotly angered about the wedding feast with the Lord, the streets of gold and all that right? Something tells me if you had the ability to do all that you hate, you would not hate it. That color green does not befit you.

And since we are still here, let me become for a minute an armchair psychoanalyst and say that conservative envy and hate seems to be directed at people living on food-stamps. Go figure...

Actually, no. I was on food stamps for about 5 months 3 years back. However, I was also working 2 jobs and not finding ways to stay on the public dole ie. farting out more kids for a welfare raise, faking permanent injuries, etc. THAT is what I have a problem with.

You are a typical case in the conservative camp: your living on food-stamps is somehow justified since you were not lacking in all sorts of personal virtues that so many other put there-I would venture to say, of a different color than you, perhaps a different language- lack. So, you deserved a bit of support from the state because  you were industrious (virtuous), while those others  are worthy vessels of conservative wrath since they are "lazy" (lacking in virtue). A certain parable from a certain book comes to mind...

It's the same thought process that justifies, in many CEO's and bankers' minds, their getting bailed out by the state (IE food-stamps) since they must have been exceedingly virtuous to have gotten there, in the first place.
Conservatism can also be said to be a fetishization of hierarchy.

Oh?  Typical bases on data or your fiat?
your living on food-stamps is somehow justified since you were not lacking in all sorts of personal virtues that so many other put there-I would venture to say, of a different color than you
I would venture that you assUme that primuspilus is white, and the "others" are black, facts not in evidence (and ignoring the fact that the vast majority of those on food stamps are white).

perhaps a different language- lack. So, you deserved a bit of support from the state because  you were industrious (virtuous), while those others  are worthy vessels of conservative wrath since they are "lazy" (lacking in virtue). A certain parable from a certain book comes to mind...
is that the book that says "if they will not work, neither should they eat"?

ah, a reader of hearts and minds you are
their getting bailed out by the state (IE food-stamps)

I don't know of anyone ever forced to take food-stamps (as many of the bankers and CEO's were, to cover for Barney Franks and company's mismanagement).
since they must have been exceedingly virtuous to have gotten there, in the first place.
care to quote their words?
Conservatism can also be said to be a fetishization of hierarchy.
then how did the workers' paradise get that fetish?
 

You've been here long enough to know that the Convert Issues board where you and augustin717 started this debate is reserved for discussion of issues revolving around conversion to the Orthodox Christian faith and that polemic debate is not permitted there. For being one of the prime movers in a heated off-topic debate on the Convert Issues board, and considering your long history of such violations of our boundaries, you are now on Post Moderation for the next 60 days. If you think this warning unfair, please feel free to appeal it via private message to Veniamin.

Pravda has ruined your reading skills. Or was Scînteia the rag you used to wipe your mind clean?

You are a typical case in the conservative camp: your living on food-stamps is somehow justified since you were not lacking in all sorts of personal virtues that so many other put there-I would venture to say, of a different color than you, perhaps a different language- lack. So, you deserved a bit of support from the state because  you were industrious (virtuous), while those others  are worthy vessels of conservative wrath since they are "lazy" (lacking in virtue). A certain parable from a certain book comes to mind...
Yep, he who does not work, does not eat.

I did not "deserve" anything. I dont "deserve" anything. I asked the pull from the well that I have put something into, and it was approved. While pulling from that well, I still put something in it. I did not want anyone else to feed my family but me, so as soon as I could, I got off of it. im not surprised that you have a problem with that. Nor am I surprised that you would hurl your smug and superior bolts at me from on high.

If you don't deserve anything, can I have back all the taxes I've paid over the years which benefit other people?

Im not the one to as. However, I was simply stating that I dont have a "I deserve this or that" attitude. I asked for help, and got it.

I'm sure I've paid for the interstate highways and the protection of the military. Since nobody ever asks me if I want to do that, I'll expect my money soon.

Oh, by the way, here's the connection: this thread really isn't off track at all. If gay people are taxed as much as straight people, yet they do not receive all the legal rights that straight people receive, are gay people not being subject to taxation without representation, as well as a lack of equal justice under the law?

This is not just a marriage issue.

Forgive my inquiry, and its probably due to the inability of the internet to convey certian emotions, but your comment wasnt meant as a hit on me, was it?
