Default Teabow anti-gay?


Tim Tebow to speak at virulently anti-gay, anti-Semitic Dallas megachurch



Rick Chandler

Feb 14, 2013, 5:49 PM EST

It seems that lately Tim Tebow has been making more speaking appearances in church than he has quarterback appearances in NFL games. Tebow made headlines with his Easter address in Georgetown, Texas in April, and his talk at a Scottsdale, AZ church earlier this month. And now he’s got another gig at a megachurch in Dallas, only this one comes with a large helping of controversy.

Tebow has a speaking engagement on April 28 at First Baptist Dallas, according to the church’s website. That’s the church led by pastor Robert Jeffress, a virulently anti-gay and anti-Semitic evangelical Christian who has made quite a name for himself in religious circles.


In October 2011, Jeffress endorsed Texas Governor Rick Perry for president, then went on to claim that Islam, Mormonism and Judaism are heretical religions “from the pit of hell.”

On the eve of the presidential election in November 2012, Jeffress warned his Dallas congregation that President Barack Obama’s re-election would “lead to the rise of the Antichrist,” according to The Christian Post.

Jeffress also gained notoriety for his statements about the gay community. According to ThinkProgress, during the same speech where he endorsed Rick Perry in 2011, Jeffress told a crowd at the high-profile Values Voters Summit that gays should not be allowed in the military because “Seventy percent of the gay population” has AIDS.

A belief that goes against every fragment of his faith? Sure is.

I'll be damned why secular liberals keep quoting Gandhi when the topic is Christianity.

Apparently they're ignorant enough to think it's from the Bible or something.

“The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”
― G.K. Chesterton,


“The Bible has noble poetry in it... and some good morals and a wealth of obscenity, and upwards of a thousand lies.”
― Mark Twain


“The word 'God' is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, and religious scripture a collection of honourable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation, no matter how subtle, can (for me) change this.”
― Albert Einstein


“If Christ were here there is one thing he would not be—a Christian.”
― Mark Twain,

Odd how "antiracists" don't mind quoting flaming racists - when they aren't white.

Do you people pay remote attention to the types of trash you idolize or not?

Anybody who is Catholic or at least understands the bible should not be surprised by this. There is a reason God created Eve for and from Adam.

For sure.... I am a huge believer. But I do have my issues with the institution that is church. That being one of them, and how the Vatican used to protect or come with a lame excuse to protect the Priest, when in truth, they should be protecting the kids. At least they finally condemned them, but still it took a long time for that.

Nice choice of church.

Quote:
But Tebow’s peace-and-love message could be tested by the megachurch’s evangelical Christian pastor, the Rev. Robert Jeffress.

He once accused gay activists of trying to hide “the link between homosexuality and pedophilia.”

In November, the preacher warned his flock that President Obama’s reelection “would lead to a rise of the antiChrist.”

While endorsing Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s presidential bid in October 2011, Jeffress bashed Islam, Judaism and Mormonism as heretical religions “from the pit of hell.”

or... you could look at it this way. Women outnumber men 2 to 1 in the world, the projection is 3 to 1 within the next few years.
so for every dude that goes gay and loves up on another dude.

that means it skews the available female numbers to a straight man's favor.
**** Gangnam, in a few years it will be Harem style.

Huh?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sex_ratio

"The CIA estimates that the current world wide sex ratio at birth is 107 boys to 100 girls. In 2010, the global sex ratio was 986 females per 1,000 males and trended to reduce to 984 in 2011."

Didn't one of Noah's son have sex with him after they all got liquored up after the flood when Noah and his lineage were biblicly all that was left of man kind?

Apparently God created gayness for a reason because it happened after both Adam and Noah...

He's a Southern Baptist. Southern Baptists universally believe that homosexuality is a sin. This is not news. They also believe all non-Christian belief systems come from the devil. This is also not news.
