I hope that you understand that the remarks of one person are just that in interviews, his/her ideas. I was not privy to the actual wording of that resolution nor of any of the debate. But it's always the "wowser" quotes that end up in the papers. Wierd things and people in debate and distress make more "news"
Oh, and I understand that completely. But I'm still going to react to the wowser comment in the hopes that it will let folks who think like that know that there are some of us who think they're whacko!
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
