‘Sesame Street’ Expresses Support for Homosexuality During ‘LGBT Pride Month’

The popular children’s television show “Sesame Street” recently expressed its support for “lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgendered” persons on its official Twitter page, generating a range of public responses, from positive to negative.

“Sesame Street is proud to support families of all shapes, sizes, and colors,” it wrote on June 23, posting a heart next to the text. It also shared a photograph of various Sesame Street characters lined up in a manner to reflect the colors of the rainbow flag.

The post has generated over 134,000 likes as of press time, and over 56,000 retweets.

It also resulted in hundreds of comments, with some applauding the children’s television broadcast for publicly supporting homosexuality, and others expressing concern about how the matter will influence children.

“Sesame Street, you just saved my soul. Thank you,” one commenter named Gloria Nieto wrote.

“This is the greatest pride message I have ever seen. Kudos @sesamestreet for teaching kids that including everybody is fun!” also wrote the user I Like Bonhoeffer.

“Are we going to get an #LGBTQ character anytime soon? Talk the talk, then walk the walk,” the user Queer Kid Stuff asked.

“Does that include Christian families that maintain a biblical point of view?” asked Derrick Burnette.

“I don’t want you to manipulate my children with ideologies. A child [is] always born from a father and a mother, #alterity is a #human #right,” also remarked Christophe.

The discussion also carried over onto various news and blog sites.

“As a political matter, Sesame Street is no longer neutral in the LGBT culture wars. This tweet reveals that Sesame Street is overtly pro-gay, declaring its solidarity with organizations like the Human Rights Campaign (HRC),” wrote Doug Mainwaring for LifeSite. “At the same time, the children’s show is clearly untethering itself from whatever connection it might have enjoyed with the world of orthodox Christianity.”

“The seven sets of eyes belonging to those cute, cuddly, vibrant rainbow-colored characters in the Sesame Street tweet weren’t staring at you; they are looking straight into your children’s and grandchildren’s eyes,” he lamented.

“Sesame Street” was launched on PBS in 1969 and focused on teaching children numbers and letters, as well as other basic educational lessons for preschoolers and elementary school children. It has since spread its reach to nearly 150 countries, and has been one of the highest-ranking children’s television shows in the United States.

  • Amos Moses – He>i

    just more sexualization and indoctrination of children to be sexualized ……….. pedophilia …………..

    • Coach

      People will argue that’s not the case, then after they have succeeded with this indoctrination, they will say there’s nothing wrong with pedophilia, then will go to great lengths to assure everyone embraces it.

      Fervent and earnest prayer for God to bring awakening as the spiritual darkness around us is great, but the apostles saw great wickedness in their day, as well as the reformers, and many of our brethren around the world today.

      John 16:33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

      • Sedagive

        You are projecting quite a bit.

    • zampogna

      Pedophilia? How do you figure that? Who is being sexually abused, and who is the abuser?

    • John Connor

      Nothing to do with pedophilia….nothing…

      • Amos Moses – He>i

        nothing but pedophilia and grooming children to accept it ….. no other reason for that to be in front of children ………..

        • Ambulance Chaser

          The reason it’s “in front of children” is because it’s teaching them acceptance. I have no idea where you’re getting pedophilia out of this.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “because it’s teaching them acceptance” ……….. yeah ….. of PEDOPHILIA ……….

          • Ambulance Chaser

            No, there is no pedophilia or anything related to it in this story.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            then you are spiritually deaf, dumb and blind …………. and choose to be so ………..

          • zampogna

            He isn’t. He is eminently sensible.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            placing children in a situation to confuse them is “eminently sensible” …… when that confusion may lead to their harm ….. WOW ….. just …. WOW ……….

          • zampogna

            That isn’t what is going on.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            exactly what is going on ………

          • zampogna

            No children are being “confused”. They are being taught equality.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
            4:2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

          • zampogna

            That isn’t what’s going on either.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            that is exactly what is going on with you ………… a “conscience seared with a hot iron” ………..

          • zampogna

            My conscience is fine. I sleep very well at night.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            yeah …. and there lies the problem …. it does not bother you …. SEARED ……..

          • zampogna

            If you would like to suggest a reason why I should be concerned about that, feel free.

          • Sedagive

            You’re aware that Sesame Street is teaching acceptance of a minority of people who are abused and disenfranchised by many intolerant people, right?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            you are aware that the choices people make …. make them what they are ….. and not all choices are equal ….. and if they want to be treated differently …… then the solution is simple ….. and it is not to FORCE everyone to accept their lies ……….

          • Sedagive

            What lies are you being told to accept?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            that what they do is equal to everyone else and that it is “normal” …. and it is not ……

          • Jason Todd

            When someone tells you AC defended the pro-pedophilia Rind study, his defense of all of this makes perfect sense.

            And yes, he did.

        • John Connor

          No pedophilia suggested or intended. Grooming? I find your trolling laughable.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            right … and what you are doing is what ….. YUP …. TROLLING …….. nice to accuse others of what you do ……………

          • zampogna

            I am quickly discovering here that people who disagree are automatically called “trolls” when they aren’t.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            i have discovered that the TROLLs call others TROLLS when they are TROLLING ….. so as to mask what they are doing …….

          • Sisyphus

            Disagreement and free thought ist streng verboten.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            you have made 27 comments under this “identity” …. on a christian site … and statements specifically against christianity …… but i am “trolling” …..

            i think i just threw up in my mouth ……………

          • zampogna

            There is no law against being a new person here.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            not sure what that has to do with what i said ………

          • zampogna

            Just because someone is new here does not mean they showed up to “troll”.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            you seem to have some head space and timing issues ….. i did not say it was …………

          • zampogna

            Excuse me, but you said just recently that Christianity was not a religion. So if people think you are trolling, maybe that is why.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            see …. if you READ the comments ….. i was not the one who first threw down the TROLLING charge ….. and christianity is not a religion …… but the comments made against it ARE against CHRIST …………………

          • zampogna

            Wow, I have never met someone so in need of owning a dictionary.

            Chris·ti·an·i·ty
            the religion based on the person and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, or its beliefs and practices.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            again …. your modern dictionary does not apply to christianity …… that is a secular view …. BTW …. secular ….. devoid of God ……… so it does not apply ………..

          • zampogna

            Why would the dictionary not apply to Christianity? Why would the dictionary seek to lie about it? Did you learn in your catechism classes that you should not listen to the dictionary?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            christianity and CHRIST define christianity and Christ ….. not the dictionary …….. cool thing about the bible …… it defines itself ………. not men ………..

          • zampogna

            No, the dictionary provides the accepted definition for…everything. Christianity doesn’t get an exemption.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            not for Christ and christianity ………….

          • zampogna

            Yes it even defines Christianity.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            not according to scripture ….. it does not …….. fail ……..

          • zampogna

            YOU fail, sir. Where in scripture does it tell you scripture overrides the dictionary? Your belief that this is so is the perfect example of how you misinterpret scripture and self-interpret for your own benefit.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            Gods word overrides everything as Gods word CREATED everything ………. and God DEFINED everything ……………

            Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

            John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
            1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
            1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
            1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
            1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

          • zampogna

            You did not answer my question.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            i did …. you just do not like the answer ….. the creator of anything is the controller of that thing ….. and the definer of that thing ….. and sorry to tell you ….. GOD created all things ……….. God created you …. and He is in control of your life ….. your death ….. and all that surrounds it ………

          • zampogna

            The question was, where in scripture does it say that scripture overrides the dictionary? Will you answer that please?

          • Becky

            There’s only One Truth and it’s written in the Word of God (2Tim3:16). God’s people are to test everything with His Word…that’s how we know what is truth or what is not…that’s how we know that His word is above all (eg: 1 Thess. 5:21, Acts 17:11, 1 Jn 4:1). Christ clearly commanded, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’” Matthew 4:4.

            “The entirety of Your word is truth, And every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever.” Psalm 119:160

          • zampogna

            So you can’t answer the question either?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            BTW ….. Tyndale, a protestant, GAVE us the standard English dictionary 500 years ago …… a CHRISTIAN …….. and i can assure you it was not what it is today …….. scripture defines scripture ….. not a modern English “dictionary” …………..

          • zampogna

            Dictionaries define words. It doesn’t matter what words. It defines them ALL. That is their job. That is their purpose. Scripture does not define scripture. Scripture does not define anything.

          • Sedagive

            You can keep saying that your religion isn’t a religion, but that doesn’t stop the dictionary from being correct.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            mans definition and Gods definition are radically different ….. God is always right … man is nearly always wrong … i follow Christ and God … not men …. the bible states what religion is … and in this case they are not the same …. God is right …. Christ is better ………

          • Sedagive

            If your god has a problem with man’s definition, he can come down and say so himself.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            He did …. but you do not accept the answers or the scriptures ………

          • John Connor

            Zofran works well for nausea and vomiting

        • zampogna

          Amos, do you know what pedophilia is?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            do you ….. because taking into consideration your comments …. i think not ……. if you think all it is …… is actual sex with a child …… then you are gravely, spiritually and MORALLY mistaken ………….

          • zampogna

            It means a sexual attraction to children. Please tell me how you are getting that from the Sesame Street story.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            Pedophilia is termed pedophilic disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), and the manual defines it as a paraphilia involving intense and recurrent sexual urges towards and fantasies about prepubescent children that have either been acted upon or which cause the person with the attraction distress or interpersonal difficulty.[1] The International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10) defines it as a sexual preference for children of prepubertal or early pubertal age

            to have a victim …. especially a WILLING VICTIM …… you have to GROOM them …. to ablate their natural fear ……. and that is what is being done ……….. it is pedophilia ……….

          • zampogna

            Who is grooming children to be victims? They are being taught equality and that homosexuals are human beings deserving of respect like anyone else.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “They are being taught equality and that homosexuals are human beings deserving of respect like anyone else.”

            teaching things are equal that are not equal ….. lies and harm …… saying sugar and salt are the same because they look the same on the outside …… WRONG ……… there is DISCERNMENT …. and they are being taught to NOT use it ……….. or to ignore it …….

          • zampogna

            Even if that was true (and it’s NOT), how on earth do you figure that kids are being “groomed” for sexual abuse by teaching that people, even gay ones, deserve to be treated respectfully?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            how is placing information about sex and DEVIANT sex in front of children learning to read NOT grooming them …………

          • zampogna

            I’m sure sex doesn’t even get mentioned! What they teach is about love. Why do your minds always turn to sex?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            why do you DENY that it is being used to do that …… LOVE ….. you cannot even define what love is …… much less tell me if it is being used or not …………

            “Why do your minds always turn to sex?”

            because the story is about it …… but you deny it …. and you refuse to deal with it ……. because “sex” is the way of the world …… or do you not watch any of the media …..

          • zampogna

            Why do people form relationships? Because of love. Checkmate.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope …. many times it is lust ….. many times it is to use a person ….. many times it is to abuse a person …. and none of that is “love” ….. uncheckmate ……….

          • zampogna

            Lust does not sustain a relationship. Empty sex is meaningless whether you are straight or homosexual. Checkmate.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            lol …….. right …. but that does not stop people from calling it “love” ………… and for the most part ….. meaningless sex is all a homosexual “relationship” is ……. so NOT love and NOT a marriage ….. a homomarriage ………… but not a marriage ……….

            love does no harm to anyone …. but all a homosexual “relationship” does is harm both parties ………… so NOT love ………… and consent or not ….. harming another is NOT love …….

          • zampogna

            So you know better than other people if they are in love?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            sure … and any person who has studied humans acting as humans act …. people are often confused about just what they are feeling and mistake one feeling for another everyday ….. and as i said ….. most do not know what real love is ….. love harms no one …. and what homosexuals do harms them and their “partners” ……….

          • zampogna

            What homosexuals do is no different than what heterosexuals do and both are consensual.

            And you simply are not granted magical powers to know other people’s minds simply because you are a Christian. If someone says they’re in love, then they probably are and no one knows better than them.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            wrong …….. what homosexuals do is not sex ……….. although i will agree that they do SIN just as much as everyone who is unregenerate ………..

            “And you simply are not granted magical powers to know other people’s minds simply because you are a Christian.”

            right .. you are absolutely right ….. God/Christ … who created them and created all of us ….. DOES ….. and He wrote it down for us so we would know ………..

            “then they probably are and no one knows better than them.”

            lust as well as a desire for acceptance and many other feelings are mistaken for love ….. and they would be the last ones to know …… because all men lie to themselves ….. and believe what they want to believe and not the truth ……….. love does not harm anyone …. but all homosexuals do is harm one another and themselves ………

            so not love ………….

          • zampogna

            They do everything the same as straight people minus the procreation. The love between them is the same. This is why they wanted same-sex marriage, and why they got it.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            no … they do not ……… sorry … you are in error …. wrong …….. it is not of any equivalence ….. not according to scripture ………..

            “This is why they wanted same-sex marriage, and why they got it.”

            no …. they wanted it because it profaned marriage …… and they got it because the unbelieving world was deceived by that ………… the world chose to believe a lie ……… as it always does ……..

          • zampogna

            Scripture never talks about homosexuality, so why would it talk about the love and relationship between homosexuals?

            And why on earth would that many people fight so hard for the right to marry the person they loved just for the sake of “profaning” marriage?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “Scripture never talks about homosexuality”

            Romans
            1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
            1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

            describes it to a “T” …………….. wrong ……… “leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another””men with men working that which is unseemly” …. cant be too much more explicit than that ……….

          • zampogna

            Your interpretation of Romans is incorrect. You misunderstand it. And more to the point, it discusses nothing about the relationship aspect of it. So you have nothing to base your opinion on.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            its not an “interpretaion” ….. it is the SCRIPTURES …… and you only deny it as you do not want to believe what you have read ….. assuming you read it ………..

          • zampogna

            It’s perfectly relevant to the people who are living it.

            And the way you read scriptures is your interpretation of it, we’ve been over this.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            the scriptures …. ARE NOT about us ….. and it may be relevant to the people living it ….. IT IS NOT relevant to God and His purposes …. and that is what the discussion is about …. the discussion is about Christ ………..as this is a christian site ………..

          • zampogna

            The discussion, as you will see printed very plainly at the top of the screen, is about Sesame Street being OK with homosexuality.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope … you altered the discussion to other things …. as part of a flow of conversation ……… and you are the one who brought up homosexuals and SCRIPTURE ……. and you were proven wrong …. though you will never admit your error …………

          • zampogna

            Ok then, following the flow of conversation, I said “They do everything the same as straight people minus the procreation.
            The love between them is the same. This is why they wanted same-sex
            marriage, and why they got it.” And then you said there was no equivalence because of SCRIPTURE.

            And you tell ME to try to keep up! You throw in a completely irrelevant post like that, what for? The EQUIVALENCE of straight and gay couples is NOT MENTIONED in scripture, anywhere. Where is the logic in bringing scripture into things when there IS no scripture?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            no …. i said there is no equivalence between what strait people do and what homosexuals do ….. because straight people have sex …… and what homosexuals do is not sex ……. so no equivalence ……..

            “The EQUIVALENCE of straight and gay couples is NOT MENTIONED in scripture,”

            right …. because …… THERE IS NONE ……….

          • zampogna

            Well of course it’s sex! What else would it be? But again, why do you keep making a relationship to be about sex? Would you do that with a straight couple, just focus entirely on what goes on in the bedroom? Why on earth are you even LOOKING in scripture for something like this? Of course it’s not going to be mentioned.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            no … it is just hedonism …………

          • zampogna

            Call it whatever you want, God knows you have so little regard for the English language and the dictionary and the proper names for things, but what can’t be denied is that people fall in love and wish to spend their lives together to avoid loneliness and unhappiness. And that isn’t a luxury given only to heterosexuals.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            God spelled out what HOMOSEXUAL behavior is and that it is not moral ……….. in English or any other language …… and the standardized English language ….. CAME FROM SCRIPTURE ……. and William Tyndale …………

          • zampogna

            WRONG. Human beings said that, not God.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            so you reject scripture ….. ok …. so how do you know that ……. and on what basis do you make that judgement …………

          • zampogna

            I never said I reject scripture. I reject your intepretation of that particular piece of scripture.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            NO …. YOU JUST DID ……………. “WRONG. Human beings said that, not God.” ……… THAT is rejection of scripture ………… and i did not interpret it ….. i gave it to you WITHOUT any interpretation ……..

            1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
            1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
            1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

            what other meaning is there ….. it states what is being talked about ……. MEN WITH MEN …..

          • zampogna

            That’s right. You interpreted the scripture incorrectly and tried to make it to be about homosexuals, which it could not possibly have been since the word didn’t exist until the 1800s. So you lied.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope …. i gave you what scripture said ….. you deny its truth …. by YOUR “interpretation” ….. MEN WITH MEN DOING WHAT IS UNSEEMLY ….. tell us …. WHAT IS THAT …………..

            If it’s a homosexual man we’re talking about, he HAS NO ATTRACTION to the woman. Don’t you get it? Don’t you know what a homosexual IS? How is he supposed to pretend to be attracted to someone he’s not? Are you encouraging him to live a lie?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope … you are telling him a lie that says he cannot change ….. that is the biggest lie you have ever told here …….. no one is born a homosexual …. there is no evidence of any sort ……….

          • zampogna

            We don’t know if people are born homosexual or if it forms in infancy but it can’t be changed, and if anyone’s telling you it can they are lying. Even Exodus International admitted to fraud and shut their doors and apologized. I think the things you are calling “lies” are just truths you aren’t brave enough to face.

            I would like to ask you, as a black woman, and I know you are a black man, do you not feel that what homosexuals are suffering in terms of hate and oppression from Christians is exactly like what we experience because of the color of our skin? In neither situation do we have any control over the situation. You better than anyone should know how that feels.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “I used to be a hateful Christian like you, Amos, but I came around when I learned that there is a very good reason the rest of the world hates us so much. We need to confront our bigotry.”

            “I would like to ask you, as a black woman, and I know you are a black man, do you not feel that what homosexuals are suffering in terms of hate and oppression from Christians is exactly like what we experience because of the color of our skin?”

            it is not hate or oppression to tell people the truth …….. it is not hate to expect people to act in a way so as to have an orderly society ………. there is no parallel between skin color and depravity …….. there is no common ground …. there is no equivalency …… to say so is to say that people of color are depraved ….. or that homosexuality is good ….. scripture says neither of these things ……… the issue is not color nor is it any specific depravity …….. the issue …. the only issue is SIN …. and how it separates us from God ….. “death” as described in scripture …. is among other things ….. ETERNAL separation from God ……….. Christ came to repair that loss of communion with God ……. God is not here to save everyone …. there is no universal salvation ….. God sent His Son to take the punishment …. to atone for mankinds violations of Gods law …. and the penalty for that violation is death …. eternal death ……… not just fleshly death ….. and Christ did die a fleshly death …. but then conquered death so that we might also through Him and His sacrifice …………

            none of us have any control of most of the situations we encounter in life …… but that is not an excuse …….. some are saved as slaves ….. that is Gods sovereign plan …. and it is God who saves each of us ….. we do not save ourselves …. nor do we have any control over when God will intervene ….. we may be a slave …… as in being a black slave …. but the truth is WE ARE ALL SLAVES …. there is not one person who ever was or ever will be who is not a slave ….. we are all slaves to SIN ……… and the only way out of that ….. is Christ …….

            now many want to call holding to that truth …. BIGOTRY ….. that the only way to heaven is by Christ and the Fathers choice of the Elect of God and who is chosen and who is not ….. not my problem ………….. that is above my pay grade ….. God decides who is saved and who is not ….. not me and no one else here …… BUT …… that is not an excuse to not speak Gods words and His truth as we are commanded to do …….. because that is how salvation takes place ….. people …. i do not care what color …. i do not care what SIN they choose to follow ….. it is my job to present the truth to ALL who will listen …. and to those who do not want to listen ….. and to those who will hear the truth and respond to it …. those will be saved ……. and those that reject it …. will not …. Christs word is not a plea …. it is not a entreaty …… it is an ultimatum ………

            truth is bigotry to those that reject it ………truth is hate to those who reject it …….. and as christians ….. we are told that the cost of being a christian …… is to be hated ….. hated for the truth ………. that is not bigotry on our part ………… it is bigotry of the sinners who reject truth ………….. again …. not my problem …………

            Hi brother Amos. I’m sure you know that’s a sock account impersonating me (click on both of our usernames to see the difference in our Join Dates, # of comments and upvotes). I thank God for you brother and keep you in my prayers. You have shared the only Truth here, Jesus Christ and I stand in agreement with you. Continue to obey God and let Him use you to minister to the loss. I’m doing my part, but had to take a break from here (although I love the brethren here and appreciate the site hosts for there graciousness) to go out into other arenas to share the gospel Truth.

            The trolls utilizing socks are desperate because they too realize their time is up. I will delete this after you respond or up vote.

            This was in my spirit as I typed this comment so I’ll share it:

            Romans 8:20-32 (NKJV)
            20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; 21 because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. 23 Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body. 24 For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.

            26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us[a] with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

            28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

            God’s Everlasting Love
            31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?

            We don’t labor in vain and the Lord of the harvest provides the increase. I will continue to support you as you follow Jesus Christ and obey His word.
            God bless.

            *Yes, Im here, but I block trolls and their socks, so, for those waiting to troll me here…lol, God bess.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            you never said anything about the WORD homosexual in scripture ….. you said it never TALKED about it …… YOU LIED ….. it does ….. and it is in Romans 1 as it was given to you ….

            YOU LIED …………..

          • zampogna

            The word was not COINED UNTIL the 1800s. So I don’t know what word you’re thinking was magically being referred to.

            Paul could have used many words if he intended to blast gays and lesbians. Yet Paul used none of those available words, choosing instead to coin an interesting new word, arsenokoitai. And despite what some scholars allege, arsenokoitai is never used in any extant Greek literature with our modern meaning of homosexual. The best evidence available today indicates that arsenokoitai described shrine prostitutes. That is the learned opinion of Philo, a contemporary of both Jesus and the apostle Paul and one of the most widely read Jewish intellectuals in the first century.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            so homosexuals NEVER EXISTED before the 1800s … is that where you want to go ….. REALLY ……. Romans gives an ACCURATE description of EXACTLY what is being DISCUSSED ….. MEN WITH MEN WHO REJECT WOMEN ….. the very DEFINITION of homosexual ….. that is the FACT of scripture … and you call it a lie ……….. that is REJECTION of scripture and of truth ………

          • zampogna

            Homosexuals ALWAYS existed. We are talking about the WORD “homosexuality”. Which did not exist until the 1800s, and the Greek word “arsenokotai” used in the Bible means something else completely. I am rejecting this because it is utter garbage.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            well the word “arsenokotai” is not part of Romans 1 ….. it is nowhere in the Greek text for that passage …. you need to go back to Matthew Vines and re-check your information ….. FAIL ………. Romans gives an ACCURATE description of EXACTLY what is being DISCUSSED ….. MEN WITH MEN WHO REJECT WOMEN ….. (and women with women who reject men BTW) ……… the very DEFINITION of homosexual ….. that is the FACT of scripture … and you call it a lie ……….. that is REJECTION of scripture and of truth ………

          • zampogna

            I don’t get my information from Matthew Vines. FAIL. In Romans 1, one of those manners of wickedness, in Paul’s evaluation, was homosexual behavior, which he saw as always licentious and thus a denial of God. Heterosexuals who live lives absorbed in lust and carnal pleasures would be EQUALLY condemned. The Oxford study notes for this passage make it clear that “the language of unnatural intercourse was more often used in Paul’s day to denote not the orientation of sexual desire, but its immoderate indulgence, which was believed to weaken the body (the ‘due penalty’).” So sorry to drop this inconvenient truth on you and force you to re-examine your INTERPRETATION of scripture once more.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            sure you do or some other equally flawed person and you did not study very well …….

          • zampogna

            That doesn’t mean much coming from a person who says that Christianity is not a religion .

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            christianity is not a religion ………. Christ and christianity define what that is … not the dictionary ….. certainly not a modern dictionary …… the dictionary goes not exegete scripture …….. so EPIC FAIL ……….

          • zampogna

            “Epic fail” he says, insisting the religion of Christianity magically rises above the dictionary definition. And with that, folks, I take my leave of bashing my head against a brick wall like so many other people.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            christianity “magically” PREDATES your dictionary ……… and it defines what it is ….. NOT YOU ………..

          • zampogna

            IT DOESN’T MATTER. It still defines words. That is what a dictionary does. If Christianity isn’t a religion then your church damn well better be paying taxes. Because your tax-free status you enjoy is only given to…wait for it…RELIGIONS.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            no it does not ….. you can think it does … but if i make up a definition about YOU …. you PERSONALLY ….. like you are a purple feline …….. who is right …. you … or me ….. who gets to decide …… you are … OBVIOUSLY …. NOPE …. the dictionary does not define God or his creation …… and in any case RELIGION is A CHOICE …. a CHOICE of MEN ……

            christianity ….. is a CHOICE OF GOD ….. so NOT religion …. by definition ………. by GODS definition ………..

          • zampogna

            That isn’t how the dictionary comes up with definitions. They aren’t based on opinions. It is as accurate in its definition of God as anything else.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            no …. it may have BEEN …. but it is not NOW …… as YOU said ….. those things (definitions) change …… God does not ……….

          • zampogna

            Amos, do you know what a dictionary is?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            i know what it is not ….. a modern dictionary is not a tool to be used to exegete scripture …..

          • zampogna

            Which it does not do. It strictly gives definitions of words which you find very threatening where scripture is concerned for some odd reason.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            yeah … but that is the use YOU are trying to put it to …… so WRONG ………. oh …. and ….. FAIL …. FYI …. i do not find it “threatening” ….. i find it in ERROR and WRONG ………..

          • zampogna

            Here’s a couple examples of you DENYING the dictionary where Christianity is concerned. All of which you clearly find threatening.

            1) Christianity is defined as a religion. Practically everyone in the world calls it a religion, and in fact where the tax man is concerned, you better HOPE it’s a religion. You said it wasn’t a religion, defying what we know to be true from the DICTIONARY.

            2) You steadfastly refuse to accept the given definition of the word “interpretation”, insisting that it means adding to scripture. You give no basis for doing so. Several people have had to point this out to you. Interpretation means how we come to understand something.

            In neither of these examples is there any reason to believe the dictionary is lying to us.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            i accept the BIBLICAL definition of christianity ….. your source is WRONG and in ERROR ……it is in opposition to SCRIPTURE …… so what ……….

            “You give no basis for doing so.”

            AGAIN …. because you refuse to read or you deny SCRIPTURE …….

            Deuteronomy 4:2, Deuteronomy 12:32, Proverbs 30:6, Galatians 1:8-9,
            2 Peter 1:19-21, Revelation 22 18-21

            One day, the King (God) decided to issue a proclamation. He sat on His throne and stated the proclamation to His Scribe (The Holy Spirit, The Prophets) and the proclamation was written out. It was “This and that, and this, this, this, that, that, that, and because this, then that and that and that”.

            The King then ordered the written proclamation (The Bible) to be read to everyone by the Heralds (The Pastors, The Clergy, The Believers). But in reading the proclamation, some of them came to believe that the King’s words were too harsh, and they decided to alter the Kings word to make it more palatable. It then was “This and this, and this, that, this, that, that, that, and because that, then that and this and this”.

            This is not what the King had proclaimed and there is a penalty for altering the word of the King.

          • zampogna

            It also says something about rendering unto Caesar. You need to read that one again. Over…and over…and over.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            bad news for you ….. i ….. do not belong to Caesar …….. i am dead to this world and i live for the world to come ……. and also ….. that has NOTHING to do with the lies of this world in the “dictionary” …………. those lies are to be rejected ……. and it was PETER whosaid under unction of Christ and the Holy Spirit ………

            Acts
            5:29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.
            5:30 The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.
            5:31 Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.

            You need to read that one again. Over…and over…and over.

          • zampogna

            So the “render unto Caesar” verse doesn’t apply to you either? So much
            for you treating scripture as being the be-all and end-all you always
            claim it is. If you can brush aside inconvenient Bible verses when you
            want, doesn’t that make you a hypocrite?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            i am owned by God … not “Caesar” ……….. and it does apply to me ….. but since i do not belong to “Caesar” ….. there is nothing to pay ………..

          • zampogna

            Way to completely misinterpret your own book. Rendering unto Caesar means separating church and state – and a perfect example is what you are trying to do with the dictionary. You want to completely negate it and all it does because supposedly the gospel does a better job. Rendering unto Caesar means respect your dictionary – it’s unrelated to God.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            yours is the misinterpretation ….. that passage is talking about to whom do we pay taxes …… to whom do we owe loyalty ….. i owe that to the One that saved my life ….. when i did not deserve it ………….

          • zampogna

            No. He urges to render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s. He doesn’t say to give what is Caesar’s to God.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            right … and i am Gods …..not “Caesars” …………

          • zampogna

            The issue is not you. The issue is giving the dictionary its due and not saying it doesn’t count because of your faith.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            it does not count when it is in error ….. just as science is not science ….. WHEN IT IS IN ERROR ………………..

          • zampogna

            Explain the error. You can’t.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            Romans
            6:12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
            6:13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
            6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
            6:15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.
            6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
            6:17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

            in case you missed the point ………… “Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?”

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “You want to completely negate it and all it does because supposedly the gospel does a better job. Rendering unto Caesar means respect your dictionary – it’s unrelated to God.”

            i cannot find “obey your dictionary” in scripture …… must be NARCIgesis … or NARCISSISTIC Isogesis ….. reading yourself into the text …….

          • zampogna

            You won’t find “obey traffic signs and signals” in scripture either. Are you going to say they are just inventions of men, and you only obey God, and go out and cause a car accident?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            see …. that still has to do with God … that is Gods law ….. physics and its laws …. Gods laws …… so to obey them and to not cause harm to others …. GODS LAWS ……..

          • zampogna

            No, traffic signs are signals are not to do with God. They are Caesar. Render unto Caesar, Amos. Your book tells you to.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “In neither of these examples is there any reason to believe the dictionary is lying to us.”

            let me fix that for you …… “In neither of these examples is there any reason to believe the dictionary is lying to ME.” ……. it is …. because it is in ERROR …………

            “Practically everyone in the world calls it a religion, and in fact where the tax man is concerned” …. then guess what …. PRACTICALLY everyone is in ERROR …… and the church is TAX IMMUNE ….. so i see no problem …..

          • zampogna

            No. It’s a dictionary. It has not made any errors.
            The church is “tax immune” because it is considered a RELIGION. If it wasn’t a religion, you’d be paying taxes. That’s the clearest demonstration of your logic fail that I could possibly give you. How many more people have to tell you that you fail before you get it?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            the people who have written it have listened to the world and not to God ….. and it is in ERROR ………….

          • zampogna

            That makes no sense…the people who wrote the dictionary were not against your religion or anyone else’s. They simply had a job to do – word definition, and did it. And just like scripture, there are different versions of the dictionary. The dictionary is not in error. And revises itself as word meanings change. But you’ll notice Christianity is still a religion, just as it always was.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            there are for the world and its paganism …………

          • zampogna

            No. I’ve never met a Christian other than yourself who disbelieved the dictionary.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            i believe God over men … the very definition of a christian ……. and that you have not met many … does not surprise me ……..

          • zampogna

            I simply no of no human being who disputes dictionary definitions for things, certainly not on religious grounds.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            i dispute it when it is in ERROR …. and it is………..

          • zampogna

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            ummmm ……. 1. SO WHAT …. and 2. GOOD FOR HER ………

          • zampogna

            Meaning that is real life, and what would likewise would happen to you if continue to do things like ignore the dictionary and the law.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            meaning she stood up for right … and you condemn her for it …. no good deed goes unpunished ….. your true colors are being revealed …… thanx for your assistance …….. now everyone knows ………….

          • zampogna

            She went to jail. (Shrug). Tell me again his she wins.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name.”

            Acts
            5:40 And to him they agreed: and when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go.
            5:41 And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name.
            5:42 And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.

          • zampogna

            I’m sure Jesus didn’t mean for you to break the law just to oppress homosexuals.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            i am sure he did not either ….. but not accepting homosexual lies is not breaking the law …… and it certainly is not breaking His law ……

          • zampogna

            Same-sex marriage is real and is accepted. Render unto Caesar.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            Caesar will render unto God ….. i am of God …. not Caesar ……… FAIL AGAIN …………

          • zampogna

            You continue to misinterpret and misunderstand the meaning of “rendering unto Caesar”.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            you do not believe the scriptures …. how would you know …………

          • zampogna

            In the same way I can not believe Hinduism but still have an understanding of it.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            yeah … no …. not the same thing …… you do not read scripture without God and come to a correct understanding ………….. you only come to your own understanding …… and that is error …………..

          • zampogna

            Well, you’ve shown how much worth your opinion holds, haven’t you? You care nothing about the dictionary’s definitions (which the REST of the world uses without complaint). In fact, if you disregard the dictionary as totally as you do, isn’t it YOU who comes to your own understanding about things?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            not totally … and that is you now lying about what was said ………. my understanding comes from the scriptures …… yours comes from yourself without scripture ……..

          • zampogna

            No, I take nothing from myself, and never would. Very obnoxious of you
            to say so. And I’m not lying, you just continue to misunderstand. You
            said yourself you disregard the dictionary. No other human being says
            things like that.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            no i did not …. i said it was not a tool for the exegesis of scripture as many of its definitions do not meet the biblical standard of those definitions … and they are IN ERROR ………

          • zampogna

            The dictionary is the dictionary. IT is the standard for definitions, not the Bible.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            wrong ……… sorry …. scripture defines and interprets scripture ………….. not men and not the modern dictionary ………. FAIL ……………

          • zampogna

            The fail is all yours…as everyone else seems to be telling you as well. Scripture is words on a paper, it has no power beyond that. Certainly not to “interpret” itself, that makes no sense, interpretation requires a human being.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            everyone else being wrong … not knew to me ………

          • Bob Johnson

            “knew” – Good pun, I love the irony.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            oooppps ……..

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”

            Mark 12:15-17

            you keep leaving off the rest of that prooftext ………….. i am Gods ….. not Caesars ……..

          • zampogna

            That isn’t what the phrase means, you’ve misinterpreted once again. (I hope now with all this misinterpretation you’re starting to realize how different Christians can come to different conclusions about what is said in scripture.)

            The scripture reads, “Jesus said to them, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” So you can’t say ME because it’s not referring to
            people but to things. “The THINGS that are Caesar’s”. In this case, the things that are Caesars are traffic laws, same-sex marriage laws, and the dictionary. All the things you keep trying to dodge.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            that is what the SCRIPTURES say …. and YOU are the one taking it OUT OF CONTEXT ….. and you have already said ………. “If scripture says something demonstrably false then yes, I deny it.” … so you deny scripture ….. so how would you even know …… and WHY should we BELIEVE YOU ……….. FYI ….. we do not ……….

          • zampogna

            I’m not taking it out of context, you are. You can’t overrule existing laws with your chosen religion. The world does not work that way.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            yes you are …. and it is OUT OF CONTEXT ……

          • zampogna

            And you won’t explain why. “I belong to God not Caesar” is you getting scripture utterly and totally wrong. A misinterpretation of epic proportions.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            you do not accept the scriptures as Gods word ….. you do not know ….. you do not care ….. why should i care what YOU think of it ………..

          • zampogna

            It isn’t necessary to accept them to simply understand them when the intended meaning is so obvious. Frankly I’m in disbelief you got this one so wrong.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            reading and understanding them … two entirely different things ….. unless you have the Holy Spirits assistance to their understanding … you will never understand them …… and you do not ………

          • zampogna

            And you don’t have the Holy Spirit’s assistance either, so who are you to say?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            i am a regenerate and repentant sinner ….. so yes … i do ….. you … you deny the scriptures … so not so much ………..

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            i have to go watch My Little Pony for a while ….. C Ya ………

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “The church is “tax immune” because it is considered a RELIGION. ”

            it is TAX IMMUNE …….. because it is a CHURCH …………. but if they desire us to pay taxes …. then so what ….. does not alter anything ………….. we still obey God and the scriptures ……. not the “dictionary” ………..

          • zampogna

            No. It is tax immune because religions is tax exempt. And that is because Christianity is a RELIGION.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope …. it is because the church is tax immune ………… 501c3 is voluntary ….. there is no requirement to have it ….. and the churches are tax immune if they have it or not …… but if a government wants to tax churches and religious organizations …. it is their option …. i care not …… and tax immune and “tax exempt” … not the samething ….. churches are governments by themselves ….. and civil government has no control of it ……..

          • zampogna

            Fail again. You can look this one up yourself, it falls under the official category “Charitable and religious organizations”.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            it is voluntary …. it is not a requirement ………. 501c3 has always been voluntary ….. and the church is immune without it …………..

          • zampogna

            You keep dodging the issue. Tax free status is granted to religions. Christian churches are not taxed. That’s because they are religious organizations. Christianity is a RELIGION.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            the church is IMMUNE ….. not “exempt” …….. maybe you should try the dictionary ……… and it is voluntary ………..

          • zampogna

            OK, it’s immune, or exempt, or not included, or whatever word salad you want to throw in there…..BECAUSE IT’S A RELIGION.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope ………..

          • zampogna

            Great, we’ll just make the arrangements to get you paying your fair share of tax then since Christianity is not a religion.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            The “church” is the body of Christ and not an institution or religion or building or business.

          • zampogna

            Well, the dictionary disagrees with you, and the law recognizes the dictionary definitions for these things, and it’s tax-exempt because it’s a religion, but I am starting to understand the alternate reality you think you live in.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            does not apply …….. fail ……….

          • zampogna

            It applies in the real world. The one I live in. I don’t know about you.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            your “real world” ….. is not real …. it is a lie ………..

          • zampogna

            It’s not a lie when it happens in real life, Amos.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            Will the Real Jesus Please Stand Up – Matthew Richard

            1. Mascot Jesus – an idol with pom-poms who encourages all his
            followers in whatever makes them happy.

            2. The Jesus who is an option among many – champion of religious pluralism and pagan tolerance.

            7. The Social Justice Warrior Jesus – who is all about liberating the oppressed from unjust economic, political, spiritual, and social positions.

            11. The Feminized Jesus – who spends his time cuddling little lambs and coddling emotions because He has been stripped of his masculinity.

            so your Jesus is all of the above …….. hmmmmmmmmm …. and all false christs …….

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “But again, why do you keep making a relationship to be about sex?”

            i do not ….. HOMOSEXUALS DO ….. and the whole name and designation is BASED ON A SEXUAL PREFERENCE ……. Same SEX “marriage” ……… ummmmm ….. DUUUUUUH! ….. are you normally this obtuse …………

          • zampogna

            “Same sex marriage”

            Which refers to marriage, not sex. And no, it’s you lot who keep going on about “sodomy” this and that…a word most homosexuals never use. Face it, this is a sexual stigma you need to get over.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope …. there is no “Heterosexual” marriage ….. never has been …. never was ….. is not now ….. HOMOSEXUALS ….. (notice the “sex” right there) ….. came up with same SEX “marriage ….. to qualify it ……… heteros did not do that …… HOMOSEXUALS did that ……..

          • zampogna

            “Sex” appears in both the word “homosexual” AND “heterosexual”, but apparently you only notice it in the first one. You aren’t even trying!

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            right …. but heteros do not identify their sexual activity by a label to the rest of the world ….. nor feel the need to do so …. HOMOSEXUALS feel a need to do so ….. PRIDE is the reason they give ……. dont have to try hard for this kind of stuff ….. it is OBVIOUS ……..

          • zampogna

            Pride is a word they use because there is no need to feel ashamed of who or what they are. Both homosexual and heterosexual are clinical words which refer to the attraction they have. But they should be secondary when you have two people who are committed to each other. The love is what matters and what sustains.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            and they feel shame ….. BECAUSE THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO ….. because what they do ….. is SHAMEFUL …… and it has nothing to do with christianity …… it has to do with …… THEY KNOW it is SHAMEFUL …… and if you got rid of every christian in the world …. EVERY one ….. they would STILL feel SHAME …………. and what they do is not love ….. love does no harm to its partner ….. and all the homosexual does is harm …………

          • zampogna

            They feel shame because of “Christians” like you telling them they are sodomites and freaks of nature when they are no such thing. Shame on you. They can’t be anything other than what they are and cannot change. When will you learn this? How long does science have to scream it in your face, and how long do the homosexuals have to tell you that’s what is going on? Are you going to continue to tell them your interpretation of scripture knows best and that they are all lying?

            There is nothing shameful about falling in love. Nothing.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “They feel shame because of “Christians” like you telling them they are sodomites and freaks of nature when they are no such thing.”

            they feel shame because they KNOW it is wrong ……… pure and simple ……

            “They can’t be anything other than what they are and cannot change.”

            what UTTER NONSENSE …… EVERY person can change ….. and the hateful one here now is YOU telling them that blatant and open LIE ………… When will you learn this? …..

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “How long does science have to scream it in your face, and how long do the homosexuals have to tell you that’s what is going on? ”

            screaming lies from anyone does not make it the truth …………. it is false science ….. it is lies ….. and they want the rest of the world to believe their lies ……….. FAIL …….

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “There is nothing shameful about falling in love. Nothing.”

            right ….. but what they do is not love ….. love does no harm to another ….. but that is what the homosexual DOES ….. HARM ………

          • zampogna

            No more than any straight person. For heaven’s sake. Where do you even get this from? If you’re referring to things like HIV, last time I checked straight people got that disease too.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            HIV … YUP … among many many others ….. and they affect ALL involved in sexual incontinence ……. what else is new ….. but it is far deeper than just HIV ……..

          • zampogna

            All of which can be contracted just as easily by straight couples. You FAIL.

          • Sedagive

            What homosexuals do isn’t sex? What constitutes sex to you?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            wrong question …. what does GOD/CHRIST consider it to be …. THAT is the correct question ……….

          • Sedagive

            Okay, what constitutes as sex to these two characters?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            procreation between a man and woman ……….

          • Sedagive

            That’s it? So any sexual intercourse that doesn’t result in the man impregnating the woman isn’t sex?

          • Sedagive

            Correct, love harms nobody. What homosexuals do is just as bad as what heterosexuals do.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            in certain cases …. YUP ….. but to the homosexual …. it is always harm ……..

          • Sedagive

            How is it always harm? What do they do differently that straight couples don’t?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            practically everything … their thinking is broken ……. as is yours ………

          • Sedagive

            So it’s their thinking, then, not their actions?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            their thinking determines their actions ….. as with everybody ……….

          • Sedagive

            How is their thinking broken?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            they think what they do is normal and right and good and healthy ……. it aint ………

          • Sedagive

            What they do is normal, and good, and healthy. Just as much as heterosexual sex.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            wrong …. broken thinking on your part …..

          • Sedagive

            How is it? Got any medical/psych/legal support for saying it’s wrong? Or do you only have a Biblical backing?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            got your statements … and they show an unregenerate broken thinking process ……..

          • Sedagive

            You’re the one talking big smack about facts, yet you have none to support you.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            the bible is the only source of unredacted truth … it is either accepted or rejected …… it is not my job to convince you of the truth …. it is my job to PRESENT you the truth ……… the rest is up to Christ …….. the truth supports itself unless a person like yourself … who thinks they get to judge what the truth is …..does not accept the truth … you want to be in the position to judge God and His word ….. you can do that without my assistance ……….

          Unfortunately for you, your opinion is worthless. What matters is the truth. The world, you included is under the power of Satan.

          We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one. And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life. 1 John 5:19-20

          • Sedagive

            “What matters is the truth.” – Yes, we know. The truth that Sesame Street is perfectly okay to do what it’s doing. It isn’t dictated by the Bible on how to run its show. If you don’t want your kids to watch, don’t let them watch.

            And yet God, according to the Bible, is a sexual degenerate. He’s a pedophile.

            Me, for one.

            so no authority …. just you …….. WOW …………

          • zampogna

            I offered my opinion. Who’s wrong with that?

        • Sedagive

          How is it celebrating homosexuality?

    • Grace Kwon

      People must stop trying to normalize the abnormally sinful depravity of homosexuality and transgenderism. Leviticus chapters 18-20. All children have rights to innocence.

      • Sedagive

        Here’s chapter and verse on a more-or- less comprehensive list of things banned in the Leviticus

        book of the bible. A decent number of them are punishable by death.

        Unless you’ve never done any of them (and 54 to 56 are particularly tricky), perhaps it’s time to

  • zampogna

    All I took from this story is the Sesame Street teaches kids that it’s not cool to hate gay people. No problem. I don’t hate them, and I know they can’t be any other way than the way they are. That’s a good lesson for kids.

    • Coach

      So if they can’t help it, it’s ok, try that argument regarding a serial rapist. It’s pure indoctrination, why are you commenting on a Christian site if you hate Christianity?

      • zampogna

        So you think that if you don’t hate homosexuals, it means you hate Christianity? How does that work?

        • Sedagive

          In his mind, that’s the case.

      • Ambulance Chaser

        I haven’t seen anything that Zampogna has said that indicates that he hates Christianity.

        • zampogna

          Thank you. So I’m NOT losing my mind.

            Corinthians 13
            Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

            2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

            3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

            4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

          • John Connor

            It’s a public forum. I’m also married with kids. Xoxoxo!

        • Amos Moses – He>i

          good thing christianity is not a religion ………..

          • zampogna

            What…WHAT?

          • John Connor

            Exactly

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            God hates religion and the religious …… Christ came to do away with that ……

          • zampogna

            Maybe the religion of the day, but Christianity is defined as a religion in the dictionary. And you should be thankful for that because if it WASN’T you can kiss your tax-exempt status goodbye.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            again …. the modern dictionary is not part of scripture and has NO BEARING on it ……. and churches are not tax exempt ….. they are tax IMMUNE …………. government has NO CONTROL of the churches to tax them ….. read the 1st amendment ……..

          • zampogna

            The job of the dictionary isn’t to try to attach itself to scripture. The job of the dictionary is to provide definitions of words. And the dictionary says Christianity is a religion because Christianity IS a religion. Just like Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, and all the rest.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            no, no,no,no,no …… the definition of words are being changed by you and many others ….. and then you want to take that definition and apply it to what was written thousands of years ago ………. WRONG ……….. scripture DEFINES what religion is ……… and it is VERY SPECIFIC and VERY LIMITED ……… and it is NOT what the “dictionary” says ……..

          • zampogna

            I don’t try to change word definitions. Sometimes they DO change over time. But you keep trying to undermine the dictionary as though it is in competition with scripture. It isn’t.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            no … you dont try …. you just accept without looking into what is being said ….. homomarriage is not a marriage ….. and religion is not as you describe ….. scripture defined it long ago … it has changed …. i do not accept the new definitions ……

            “Sometimes they DO change over time”

            But God does not ….. and we do not get to alter His word for any reason ………..

          • zampogna

            Your problem isn’t just an ignorance of words and their use but also of history. Your bible does not get to define marriage since marriage PREDATES the Bible AND Christianity. And guess what? The dictionary says nothing about one man, one woman, making it the correct definition. Your RELIGION of Christianity can only define the things under its own purview. Not the things outside of it.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            your problem is ignorance of scripture ………. “marriage PREDATES the Bible AND Christianity” …….. as i just said ………… your problem is ignorance of scripture ………

          • zampogna

            Marriage existed before your scripture.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            marriage was created by the God of the scriptures …. the God who created everything ………

          • zampogna

            And prior to the scriptures, people got married to more than one person, to the same gender, etc. What is your point?

          • Sedagive

            Yes, it’s marriage. It’s marriage under the secular laws of multiple different countries.

            And we don’t care if you accept the new definitions. Your acceptance is neither needed nor wanted.

            Also, God changes over time. Why make a New Testament?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            the God of the OT and the God of the NT …… ARE THE SAME GOD …… no change ….. and you do not accept the scriptures … so why do you care ………..

          • Sedagive

            Secular nations don’t accept scripture, either.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            wrong ….. NO NATION accepts them ………..

          • Sedagive

            If no nation accepts scripture, why should we care what scripture has to say?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            you are unregenerate ….. and until God intervenes in your life …. you wont ………

          • Sedagive

            Regenerate? What? I’ve regenerated ten times now. I’m a Pilot regen level 10.66, if memory serves.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            Jas 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

          • zampogna

            I don’t see what that has to do with your failure to understand the word “interpretation”.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            it has to do with the scripture DEFINING religion ….. and it is only that ….. as far as scripture and God ………….

          • Sedagive

            Where do you get the definitions of all the other words you read in the Bible?

            Oh, wait. The dictionary.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            not a modern dictionary ……….

          • Sedagive

            Why not?

          • Sedagive

            Yeah, it is.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope …….

          • Sedagive

            Your disagreement with the facts doesn’t negate the facts.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            you have no facts ….. all you have given is opinions of “rulings” ….. and they are all equally NOT FACTS ….

          • Sedagive

            I have facts. Facts state that Christianity is a religion.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            you are entitled to the facts … not your own facts ….. Christ made no claim to a religion other than what is described in the scriptures ………… so no ……..

          • Sedagive

            It isn’t “my” facts. It’s the facts.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope …. they are just your “facts” …………..

          • Sedagive

            But they’re not. You are the one with your own (false) facts that Christianity isn’t a religion. Christianity is a religion, whether you like it or not.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            it is not …. whether you like it or not ……….

          • Sedagive

            The dictionaries and all the lists of religions support me.

        • Coach

          Is indoctrination wrong?

      • Sedagive

        Are you really comparing gay people to serial rapists?

    • OldBut YoungMoney

      Your so full of it. Get off our website. You’re not a Christian and you push perversion. There are no “”gay” people” to hate. No one is defined by how crazy they’re currently acting. No one is defined by their desire to do one of the most backwards disgusting things you can with your body.

  • Lydia Church

    Homosexuality is a sin. (Romans 1; 26-27, 1 Corinthians 6; 9-11, etc.). So you can’t have it both ways in this issue. Either you are for Christianity, or for the gay agenda. They are on the agenda to normalize, legalize, and celebrate sin, so they are against us. It is not that Christians hate gays, we are to love the sinner and hate the sin. Thus, we can’t condone the sin. For that, many will hate us. They won’t want to associate with us anymore because of our stand. That’s just how it goes. And Jesus said, either you are for Him, or you are against Him. He did validate biblical marriage several times, when He said that God created humanity as male and female, when He said that Sodom and Gomorrah was judged for their sin (we all know where the term ‘sodomy’ comes from), and where He said that He supports the law and came to uphold it, not deny it.

    • Bob Johnson

      Gluttony is a sin. The Bible speaks of the sin of gluttony much more often than homosexuality. Over 36% of Americans are obese. To quote you,

      “So you can’t have it both ways in this issue. Either you are for Christianity, or …”

      ice cream parlors. I see fat kids going in for a “Sunday” all the time. Maybe you should pick a more target rich population to bring out of sin.

      • Amos Moses – He>i

        • Bob Johnson

          Just like “homosexual” is not found in the Bible. But you might want to read up on the Seven Deadly Sins.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            right … but the description of homosexual behavior IS ……… several times ……….. the seven deadly sins are a RCC construct ….. and i am aware of them …… they just are not listed in the scriptures ………..

      • OldBut YoungMoney

        Yes, but gluttony is not something called worthy of the death penalty you fking dipschit.

    • Sedagive

      Divorce is a sin, and is spoken of in the Bible, and by Jesus, FAR more than homosexuality. (funny, Jesus didn’t mention homosexuals at all).

      Yet Sesame Street has mentioned divorce a few times, too, and taught kids how to deal with that.

  • FoJC

    Target the children because they are gullible and easily influenced. The same strategy Hitler used, as well as other evil pushers in the world. The world is coming to bear for the rise of the Antichrist. He will be lauded as a god, worshiped as a savior.

    The last paragraph is what I was thinking while reading the article. The show used to be about helping children learn useful things, but is now just a bully-pulpit to pervert their thinking. Other daytime television shows do the same to adults.

    Pummel them with a lie over and over, and they will begin to believe it. It’s about removing the Truth and filling the cup of their mind up with murky water. Since they never see clear, clean water, they just think water is supposed to be cloudy and taste funny. People get used to it, then they just accept it.

    Satan is crafty, intelligent, and patient, but is perverting people with his prideful, self-serving lies.

    Come LORD Jesus, come!

  • Jason Todd

    Sesame Street became unwatchable PC garbage years ago.

    This is just another nail in the coffin.

    • zampogna

      And the show goes from strength to strength and continues to be held in high esteem by educators. No nails. No coffins.

      • cadcoke5

        Jesus actually address the issue in your comment in a way. Matt 18:6,
        “if you cause one of these little ones who trusts in me to fall into sin, it would be better for you to have a large millstone tied around your neck and be drowned in the depths of the sea.”

        • zampogna

          Not really, because for this verse to work in that context it would need to be understood that homosexuality is a sin. We know from science that it is not, and we know from history that homosexuality was not a word at all until some time in the 1800s.

      • Becky

        Just like homosexuality is it. Christ warned his believers that the end times were to be like the days of Lot…prevailing with perverse and lewd sins. Seems as if the homosexual activist groups and their lot are winning are they? But then…sudden destruction (Lk17, 1Thess5).

        • zampogna

          You’re creating a false war between homosexuals and Christians.

          • cherilyn

            No, darling, the war is real. Homosexuals are warring against God and His Son, so they are warring against those who are following after Christ. Jesus said, “Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, [5] And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?” Matthew 19:4-5. It was decided over 2000 years ago what marriage is and between whom. If you reject the Word of God spoken by The Christ, you WAR against God and His people, Christians!

          • zampogna

            Ask yourself this question.
            Are homosexuals telling you that you can’t get married? Are they holding rallies waving placards that say “God hates Christians”? Are they sponsoring ballots that try to get your rights taken away?
            Tell me again who’s waging the REAL war here.

          • cherilyn

            There is a difference between waging war and fighting back. If not for men’s sperm and women’s eggs coming together there would not exist the continued production of mankind. Long before men began trying to be God, men and women came together as husband and wife, as one unit, to create and raise a family. Homosexuality (in all its forms) perverts and distorts absolute truths. Therefore they (and their sympathizers) have waged war against what is good and acceptable to God, thus they war against God and His people!

            People like you believe in evolution because someone told you it was science and true without any CONCRETE evidence. You also believe that a man can change into a woman because someone told you it was science and true without any CONCRETE evidence. Are you starting to see a pattern forming? You believe whatever lying, fallible, corrupt man tells you in spite of the truth before you. There is no evidence of an ape turned human; no evidence of a male (Xy) turned female (Xx), but those are the “truths” you live by. I suppose you also adore the idea of murder for hire in a woman’s womb under the falsehood of healthcare and choice.

    • HowardTekle

      Yup. Sesame Street. Only the most respected children’s show on TV which has won countless awards and is the gold standard for children’s TV.

    • Jason Evans

      Come now, be honest. You want to give Grover a BJ.

      • Jason Todd

        Flagged and blocked.

        What is the matter with you?

        • Jason Evans

          I love your rectum.

        • Sedagive

          You block someone, then ask them what’s the matter? Did you intend to ask a question that you refuse to hear the answer to?

          • zampogna

            That’s Jason. He does that, yeah.

  • John Connor

    Simple tweet expressing support for all people. Typical histrionics from the religionists. Mountain out of molehill.

    • Jason Todd

      Excuse me?

      Let me explain something to you:

      No one has any business teaching children under the age of ten a particular type of sexual lifestyle and behavior when they shouldn’t know anything about sex in the first place.

      When I watched Sesame Street, it was all about letters and numbers, cuteness and fun. This is where kids learned the basics.

      And now you say you have no problem using this show as a vehicle to promote abnormal sexual behavior?

      What is the matter with you? Are you insane?

      • Ambulance Chaser

        There is nothing in this tweet about sex or “abnormal sexual behavior.”

        • Amos Moses – He>i

          yep … more lies ……….

          • zampogna

            I can’t take much more of this. What is the lie?

          • Jason Todd

            See, that’s why I blocked him. Not only does he hate Christians and Christianity, not only does he despise this country and its Constitution, there is NOTHING LGBTQW related he will not defend.

            And I am certain he will flag this because I am not being nice.

            But you know what?

            He can’t hide from the truth. And I won’t let him.

            I draw the line with child abuse, whether it be mental, emotional, physical, or sexual. You defend any of that in any way, and you expect me to play nice? You can pound salt.

          • HowardTekle

            And so can you, Mr. Faith based hatred.

      • John Connor

        Nobody is teaching or promoting sexual behavior. This is about a tweet in support of equality for all

        • Jason Todd

          Sure they are. It’s never been about anything else. And the fact you think a three year old should be exposed to this sick filth says a lot about you.

          • John Connor

            Exposed to a tweet? Or exposed to gay people? Either way, they’re both part of our society and aren’t going away.

          • Jason Todd

            *smh*

            You know exactly what I mean.

          • HowardTekle

            Treating people with respect is sick filth, huh? And insisting that people abide by your brand of Christian hatred isn’t?

          • OldBut YoungMoney

            Because it’s publicly funded ffs, number one. Number two, it’s pushing this schit on CHILDREN, which is so backwards and wrong.

          • Sedagive

            What is it pushing on children that you don’t like?

          • OldBut YoungMoney

            Did you not catch that first part? That it’s publically funded? That ALONE should be the end of the discussion. As for what is it pushing? Are you even following what is going on here at all?

          • Sedagive

            It’s a children’s education show. What is it pushing? Be specific.

          • OldBut YoungMoney

            Do you even know what this article is about? It’s pushing sodomite behavior.

          • Sedagive

            Except it isn’t. It’s pushing equal, earful treatment of others.

          • OldBut YoungMoney

            Everything was already equal. This is pushing perversion.

          • Sedagive

            Everything is still equal.

          • OldBut YoungMoney

            So then you admit that everything was already equal, great.

          • Sedagive

            Everything is equal now. What’s your complaint?

          • OldBut YoungMoney

            You said everything was STILL equal. That means you agree that everything was ALREADY equal. Furthermore, my complaint is that it’s pushing perverted insane ideas on children.

          • Sedagive

            What perverted insane ideas?

          • OldBut YoungMoney

            Oh my fk. Are you seriously this slow? I ALEADY TOLD YOU: SODOMITE BEHAVIOR.

          • Sedagive

            Where is it doing that? Show the episode and highlight the script.

          • OldBut YoungMoney

            Why are you so stupid?

          • Sedagive

            Where is Sesame Street pushing sodomite behavior?

          • zampogna

            There is not, nor has there ever been, anything close to sodomite behavior on Sesame Street. Never.

          • OldBut YoungMoney

            You people can’t be serious. What the is the title of this article? Tell me.

          • zampogna

            It takes a really warped mind to take an issue about human love and attraction and turning it into an act of sex.

          • OldBut YoungMoney

            It really takes a warped mind to twist what love is and push perversion. What sex? Actual sex can only happen between a man and woman; it can’t happen between two men or women ffs. Do you even hear how perverted you sound?

          • zampogna

            Well it’s time you learned what a HOMOSEXUAL is then. They are like most people but the poles of attraction are reversed. In every other respect they are no different than anyone else, and they’re not coming after your children, and they don’t recruit, and they aren’t trying to take your straight marriage away.

          • OldBut YoungMoney

            Listen to yourself. You sound like a raving perverted lunatic. First off, I know what a sodomite is. It’s you who doesn’t. “They” are not like most people. The mere fact that these freaks make up only 1.8% of the population approximately according to the CDC alone proves that they’re not even close to like most people. In addition, if they’re not coming after my children, then why are they trying to push it on them? Why are 1/3rd of all child molestation cases caused by these 1.8%ers? I wouldn’t put it past them to try to take away my “straight” marriage either. Every other day something even crazier comes out that these sodomite freaks are pushing.

          • zampogna

            They’re trying to educate children to stop people like you from killing homosexuals. Isn’t it obvious? Check your stats again, the demographic most likely to molest children is a straight married man. Homosexuals aren’t interested in your children.

          • OldBut YoungMoney

            LOL from killing people who deserve death? First off, I never advocated enforcing a death penalty for an action ANYONE else can commit. Furthermore, I do however believe IT an ACTION should be illegal. Yeah, NO SCHIT sodomites are going to try to indoctrinate children so that they won’t be against their filthy dirty backwards warped vile behavior. Isn’t it obvious? Actually, it’s you who needs to check your statistics. 95% of all child molestations are done by males. 1/3rd of all child molestation victims are male. Do the math. That means 1/3rd of all child molestations are done by sodomites. Male on male contact = sodomite. I know sanity and logic are not your strong suit, but I’m literally drawing this out for you to a point so that even the slowest of the slow will get it.

          • zampogna

            They deserve death? Nice. I would never say anyone was deserving of death that didn’t inflict pain on someone else.
            I still don’t know what you’re talking about when you say “sodomites”. People who commit sodomy? So in other words, straight couples too? Does that mean you’re letting lesbians off the hook with your witch hunt, since they don’t do it?
            95% of all child molestations are done by males – check.
            1/3rd of all child molestation victims of male – check.
            Do the math? I DID. Did you? Because if you had, you’d know that most of the people who molest boys are STRAIGHT WHITE MALES. And that’s exactly what we learn from the statistics too, but for some reason you can’t get it through your head that straight married men who molest boys are NOT GAY. Comparing a “normal” adult attraction to a pedophile’s attraction is comparing apples to oranges.
            But YOU think that if the child is male, then the adult has to be homosexual. WRONG. And if you don’t believe me, go play around on the internet yourself…I know you must have the free time.

          • OldBut YoungMoney

            Funny thing is, your entire argument is built upon lies, things separate from physical reality, an ignorance of the facts, and, frankly, flat out denial. Sodomites do immense harm to society. Sodomite describes ANYONE who goes after the same sex. It’s a word that is derived from the Bible to describe those who behave like those that lived in and around Sodom. Clearly, if you knew the facts, you would understand that these people are DEFINITELY worthy of death. Research shows, along with a little common sense, that it’s detrimental. People with patterns of sodomite behavior tend to have more mental and physical ailments, drug abuse and drug pushing, promiscuity, shorter lifespans, suicide, they tend to be more violent than the general population, pedophilia is far more rapid among those with patterns of homosexuality, they tend to spread disease more rapidly because of the promiscuity, they commit genetic suicide, cause population growth shortfalls, and much more. They are literally vermin that leaven the whole lump and they need to be stopped.

            95% of all child molestations are done by males – check
            1/3rd of all child molestation victims are male – check
            Therefore, 1/3rd of all child molestations are sodomite acts. Therefore, sodomites are responsible for 1/3rd of all child molestation cases. Idk why YOU can’t get that through YOUR head, not the other way around. Are you a complete and utter moron? I mean who do you think you’re fking kidding? Male on male contact is SODOMITE BEHAVIOR ffs. They are obviously LIARS just like John Wayne Gacy was a liar, which is why they molested someone of the same sex at all or are molesting kids period! A sodomite can be a person swinging one way or both, it doesn’t have to be a person with one particular lust. Btw, I wonder how many pedophiles would deny being a pedophile before being caught, gee. They’re just so truthful right? (That’s sarcasm.) I cannot stress enough that what you’re trying to suggest is just so asinine and stupid that’s it’s not even worth taking seriously. It cannot be seriously taken by ANYONE who isn’t a biased fking twit like you or an utter moron. What you’re claiming is that attraction has no role in 1/3rd of all child molestation cases and that pedophiles, and sodomites as well, are clean as the driven snow when it comes to telling the truth about who they really are! I get it though; you’re literally in full blown denial mode at this point. However, no one with a functioning brain will take you seriously. This is more or less, at this point, now just something I’m doing so that other people will see how stupid, biased, and in denial my opposition is.

            In addition, I love your straw man arguments. No, I’m not saying sodomites = pedophiles. They’re both deranged attractions. However, I will say that pedophilia runs RAMPANT among sodomites and it is something that can be brought on once sodomite tendencies are picked up. No matter your idiotic truly desperate pathetic attempts to write away the FACT that 1/3rd of all child molestations are done by sodomites, a few things can help us explain this phenomena. One thing that could explain this is the fact that many sodomites themselves have been molested and statistically speaking victims are far more likely to go on to molest than someone who has not been molested. Another reason is that sodomites, when compared to a normal population, are statistically more likely to prefer massive age gaps between they are and their “partner”.

          • zampogna

            First thing you need to do is look up the word “sodomites”. Because I don’t think you know what it means. You’re ascribing it to a lot of people you hate, and I get that you hate a lot of people, but the world simply doesn’t apply to many of the people you want it to.

            I can’t think of anyone “worthy of death” except those who cause harm, torture and death to other people. So for you to wish it on people who are basically minding their own business is absolutely sickening.

            Nothing you said has any basis in fact regarding homosexuals (even though you used the word sodomites, which again, I don’t think you know the definition of). They have nothing to do with pedophilia, drug abuse, or any of the other nonsense you listed. You’re welcome to provide a source, but I think we both know you don’t have one. In fact most of the things you listed can equally be blamed on straight people. Including sodomy.

            “Therefore, 1/3rd of all child molestations are sodomite acts.”

            Wrong. Because you don’t know what the word “sodomy” means. They are the acts of criminals who should be punished, no question, but molestation doesn’t always mean “sodomizing”. And when it IS sodomy, and this is the part you keep getting WRONG over and over, it is statistically NOT a homosexual but a straight man. Don’t you know that pedophilia is primarily the act of straight, married men? Don’t you read the NEWS? And I hear you right now saying “well if it’s a man and a boy then it’s a gay act”. No it ISN’T because pedophilia attractions are not comparable to adult ones, whether gay or straight.

          • Sedagive

            Equal, respectful

  • http://none.com Peter’s Legacy

    He asks, “Does that include Christian families that maintain a biblical point of view?” Of course it does. First because many, many Christians accept the marriage of two mature adults who commit to a life-time of fidelity, honor and support–gay or straight. Second, even those Christians who don’t should recognize that those in society who reject their faith are still obliged to treat them as equal citizens–so too should they then recognize their obligation to treat as equal those LGBT citizens with whom they disagree. So, yes, Sesame Street includes conservative Christian families including my own.

    • Jason Todd

      Anyone who says they’re a Christian and yet rejects the clear Word of God isn’t.

          • John Connor

            Not at all. I just enjoy hearing both sides whether I agree or not. I find the blocking feature to be somewhat cowardly.

          • zampogna

            It absolutely is.

      • Sedagive

        “rejects the clear word of god” – Which parts of the Bible must one follow to not reject the word of god?

    • JessTeezn

      The key word is “biblical”. So, no, it does not “include Christian families that maintain a biblical point of view”.

      • http://none.com Peter’s Legacy

        Actually the key words are ‘selective, conservative biblical’…those who choose to misread the Bible as somehow rejecting the marriage of two mature adults who commit to a life-time of fidelity, honor and support. Yet they, also, are welcome in the Sesame Street family.

        • Amos Moses – He>i

          “those who choose to misread the Bible as somehow rejecting the marriage of two mature adults”

          half a definition from scripture is stating a LIE ……. and you just put words in God mouth that He NEVER SAID ………….. and that is blasphemy ……….

          Matthew 19, John 10, Genesis 2 ………………..

          • http://none.com Peter’s Legacy

            It’s not my place to belabor this. So, just one reply. You, as do all Protestant Christians, believe that you are able to read and understand the Scripture as it was meant to be understood. So do I. I prayfully read and understand it differently. With all due respect, Mr. Moses, whether you agree or not, God is my judge, not you.

          • Sisyphus

            Suggesting interpretation of the Bible is subjective, as it clearly is, seems to be considered blasphemous to some here.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope …. with the statements you are making … you understand what YOU want it to say ….. not what CHRIST said ……… big difference ……. i want to hear what Christ said ….. not make up stuff that is not there ………… as you are ………

          • JessTeezn

            “You, as do all Protestant Christians, believe that you are able to read
            and understand the Scripture as it was meant to be understood.”

            Yes, of course. Are you maintaining that the Bible cannot be read and understood “as it was meant to be understood”? If that were true, there would be no point in God giving us His word. The key is reading it as it is, not reading your own desires into it. I don’t care how “prayerful” your interpretation, if you “read and understand it differently” than “as it was meant to be understood” you’re only fooling yourself, not God.

          • Sedagive

            Then whose interpretation of the Bible is correct? What way must we read the Bible in order to understand God’s intent?

          • JessTeezn

            Read the Bible the same way you read anything else. It’s really not that hard, but some people make it complicated because deep down inside they really don’t want to know what God has said.

          • Sedagive

            “Read the Bible the same way you read anything else” – So, literally?

          • JessTeezn

            Yes, except where the Bible itself indicates the text is figurative. Context is key.

          • Sedagive

            A literalist view of the Bible is how most atheists read it.

          • JessTeezn

            You’ve polled “most atheists”?

          • Sedagive

            Since we read the book like any other book, it’s the only way TO read it.

          • JessTeezn

            It’s not just reading, it’s believing.

          • Sedagive

            I knoq. I don’t believe what’s in it.

          • JessTeezn

            Well, there’s your problem.

          • Sedagive

            How is it a problem?

          • JessTeezn

            Your problem is that the Bible is true whether or not you believe it. Denying reality will catch up to you eventually.

          • Sedagive

            It’s true, despite you being unable to actually show evidence proving it’s true?

          • JessTeezn

            The evidence for it is all around you, but you choose to ignore it.

            [B]ecause that which is known about God is evident to [men]; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.

            Romans 1:19, 20

            And I’ll leave you with this:

            The fool has said in his heart “There is no God.”

            Psalm 53:1

          • Sedagive

            See, you keep claiming that, yet can show no scientific link between reality and your god. Your religion isn’t the only one claiming to have a monopoly on the origin of reality.

          • JessTeezn

            What would constitute a “scientific link” between God and His creation? Lab tests? A UL listing? Can you prove “scientifically” that there is no God?

            As the Bible says, evidence for the existence of God is all around you. You don’t need a laboratory. Open your eyes and your mind.

            Yes, there are many counterfeit “religions”. The Bible is unique. For instance, it explains creation as being made directly by God, in perfect and uncorrupted form from the beginning, and that the universe was corrupted by sin and continues to deteriorate on its own. All other systems of belief not derived from the Bible–even some apostate varieties of Judaism and “Christianity”– claim that God used evolution to create the universe, which is supposedly “getting better” as time goes on.

          • Sedagive

            Anything that’s scientifically linked, yes. Something that can be tested and verified. So far we only have claims like yours, but these claims aren’t unique to only your religion. How are we supposed to tell which religion’s stories are true, when they all have the same amount of evidence supporting them?

          • JessTeezn

            You’re switching between two different issues; the existence of God in general and the Bible’s veracity. I’ll try to cover both.

            The “no scientific proof” claim is an old atheist canard. The existence of God is not something that is a repeatable phenomena which is subject to controlled experiments. You can’t prove your own existence scientifically, let alone God’s. (Or, otoh, prove scientifically that God does not exist!)

            The claims of the Bible are uniquely well-documented. For instance, the resurrection of Jesus Christ is one of the most–if not the most–well-documented fact of ancient history, as is His ascension. There were eyewitnesses to those events who suffered persecution, torture and death rather than deny what they saw and heard. They gained nothing by fabricating such stories if the events didn’t actually occur. Not so for Mohamed (who built his religion into a political power structure), Krishna, Buddha, or anyone else who ever lived.

            The existence of God and the fact of Christ’s resurrection are issues which have been argued at length for centuries. Many times there have been deniers who insisted that Christianity would not survive their own lifetimes (such as Voltaire), but the Bible and Christianity still thrive, even amid much opposition.

          • Sedagive

            That’s a long way to say you don’t have any evidence for your god.

          • JessTeezn

            I guess you didn’t get how invalid the “scientific proof” argument is to proving one’s existence. You also don’t get the significance of the evidence for God’s existence that is all around you. You also seem averse to historical evidence.

            I have gone the extra mile to answer your questions. You keep gainsaying, without backing up your own argument. I know it’s easier to keep regurgitating “no evidence” at the evidence I’ve provided, but you’re being disingenuous.

            If you are interested in pursuing an honest investigation of the issues of God’s existence and the Bible’s veracity, I can give you links to sources. If you’re just trolling, I won’t waste any more of my time.

          • Sedagive

            Yes, we can scientifically show our own existence. It’s easy.

            And the “evidence” you think that’s all around us, that is there for your god, is also there for every god.

            I’m not the only one looking at the utter lack of evidence for your god. There have been many others who have looked at history and seen the utter lack of anything shown to concretely support the claim that your god exists. Supposedly he’s done certain things, but these certain things can’t be shown to have happened. That flood, for example.

          • JessTeezn

            Sedagive, I’ve been responding to you over the last couple of days, but Disqus has held up the posts as “pending”. It may be the Links I included.The links are to websites that can show you the evidence you think isn’t there. We’ll just have to wait until Disqus decides to post them. until then, we can go no further with this.

          • Sedagive

            Then tell me what to look up. Show me the evidence that nobody yet has before shown for the existence of your god.

          • JessTeezn

            Let’s try again.

            Look up the Institute for Creation Research (icr with a dot org domain) and also the Creationism site (creationism with a dot org domain).

            Now, will this survive?

          • JessTeezn

            Disqus will not let my posts through. Sedagive, go to any scientific creationist website. Google it.

          • Sedagive

            “scientific creationist”.

            That’s an oxymoron. Creationism isn’t science.

          • JessTeezn

            Because you say so? You’re quite wrong about that.

          • Sedagive

            No, because the scientific community things so.

          • JessTeezn

            The “scientific community” being only evolutionary scientists I suppose. You haven’t checked any creationist sites, have you? Of course not.

            It looks like you don’t want any information that contradicts your pre-conceived ideas. It’s plain you don’t want to even consider the other side. I’ve tried to give you the info you claim to want, but you don’t really want it. I’m not wasting any more of my time.

          • Sedagive

            I have looked at creationist sites.

            And no, not just evolutionary scientists. The ENTIRE COMMUNITY thinks creationism is a load of bullshit.

          • JessTeezn

            “The ENTIRE COMMUNITY”? Now you presume to know what “The ENTIRE COMMUNITY” thinks?

            If you mean the “community” of evolutionists, they may not believe in creationism, but they are finding it more and more difficult to equate evolutionism with science. They are coming to recognize that evolutionary theory is, in essence, a system of metaphysical philosophy, not science.

            One of the most philosophically sensitive evolutionary proponents in our time is Michael Ruse who on several occasions has openly acknowledged that the debate between creationism and evolution is over their respective philosophical foundations. In a 1993 address, for example, he startled his evolutionary colleagues by saying that since his appearance in the Arkansas creation trial, “I must confess, in the ten years since. . .I’ve been coming to this kind of position myself [viz., that of Philip Johnson that evolution is metaphysically based]…[those in academia] should recognize, both historically and perhaps philosophically, certainly that the science side has certain metaphysical assumptions built in doing science, which—it may not be a good thing to admit in a court of law—but I think that in honesty. . .we should recognize [this].”

            Cited in Thomas Woodward, Doubts About Darwin: A History of Intelligent Design (Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Books, 2003),147.

            Bold, mine.

            In other words: Evolutionary theory is a system of faith; a religion, not science.

          • Sedagive

            In other words, you’re stretching quite far to try and disprove and discredit the theory of evolution.

          • JessTeezn

            I just quoted a prominent evolutionist who admits that evolutionary “science” is essentially a religion.

            Your stretching quite far to avoid the truth.

          • JessTeezn

            I just quoted a prominent evolutionist who admits that evolutionary “science” is essentially a religion.

            You’re stretching quite far to avoid the truth.

          • JessTeezn

            No stretching at all, I simply quoted a prominent evolutionist regarding the essential nature of evolutionist belief. Iow, it ain’t science, it’s a religion.

            You’re stretching quite far to avoid the truth.

          • Sedagive

            Not at all. You’re trying to discredit the theory of evolution. It’s quite sound. In fact, it’s the most scientifically-supported and evidence-backed theory in science today.

          • JessTeezn

            That’s the point. Evolutionism is NOT “scientifically-supported and evidence-backed”, and as that evolutionist scientist pointed out, evolutionists know it! They believe it because they want to, not because science backs it up. As that evolutionist said, the theory of evolution is philosophically based, not scientifically based. He also pointed out that evolutionists don’t like to admit that.

            And neither do you. You are ignoring facts which contradict your comfortable mindset. You have no argument, just gainsaying dogmatism. Just like the evolutionist I quoted, you believe that there is no God–not because of any scientific proof supporting your belief–but because of your preferred philosophical position. Bottom line: You don’t believe in God because you don’t want to believe in God, and all your intellectual capacities are consumed in trying to maintain a pseudo-scientific rationale for your unbelief.

            There will come a day when your rationale will no longer shield you from reality. I have attempted to get you to think, but your mind is closed. I can only hope you open it before it is too late for you.

          • Sedagive

            What is evolutionism? Do you mean the theory of evolution, which is scientifically-supported?

          • Sedagive

            What is evolutionism? Do you mean the theory of eviolution, which is scientifically-supported?

          • Sedagive

            Also, you seem to have some kind of special mind-reading powers, to try to tell me what I think, and how I think. Do tell me more of what I’m thinking.

          • Sedagive

            And I have considered the other side. I found it full of mystery, magic, and myth. Built entirely on faith.

          • JessTeezn

            Because you say so? Gainsaying is not an argument, let alone a refutation.

            Google “scientific creationism”, (if you dare).

          • Sedagive

            I have before. It’s been debunked by actual science.

          • Sedagive

            Though I don’t know why they get taken down. I know I’m not the one to flag and remove them.

    • zampogna

      Beautiful post. Thanks.

  • FoJC

    This is a “red flag”, but others have come up in the past. This show is not safe for children, because it will practice a lie before them. Don’t let the possibility of being rejected by the homosexuals and those who help push their perversion onto society lead you to want to be recognized by them and “included”.

    It is better to be rejected and harassed by the world for following Jesus than to come to a compromise with them.

    Follow Jesus, find Wisdom.

    • Ambulance Chaser

      What lie would that be?

      • Bob Johnson

        ”that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”

        aside – That’s pursuit of Happiness, not a pursuit of Righteousness.

        • Ambulance Chaser

          I feel you. But let’s be honest here. The definition of “lie” around these parts is “a statement someone else made that I disagree with.”

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope … a statement made that opposes scripture is a lie ……. and you make them FREQUENTLY …………

          • Sedagive

            Wow. Just…wow. I didn’t know the depths of delusion and depravity someone might reach, but you found a new low on this site.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            so just ad hominem …… k ….

          • Sedagive

            How is it ad hominem?

  • Grace Kwon

    Western culture’s record-worst child-abuse. Satan’s target has been children from the start. Children who got exposed to homosexuality get programmed to live for depravity alone.
    May the Lord intervene.

    • Sedagive

      “western culture’s record worst child abuse” – What, the Catholic church?

  • zampogna

    There is no perversion. AND homosexuality is legal.

    • Amos Moses – He>i

      legal is an opinion …… perversion is a moral decision …….. one has nothing to do with the other ……..

      • zampogna

        Fortunately it’s neither one. No one is being hurt when the two parties are consenting adults.

        • Amos Moses – He>i

          and that is a lie ……….. consenting adults hurt each other EVERYDAY ….. and their consent ….. MEANS NOTHING …………..

          • zampogna

            If they hurt each other that would be abuse. Consent means they are willing participants. There is no abuse.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            sure …. most states …. in cases of SPOUSAL ABUSE ….. arrest BOTH PARTIES ….. CONSENT NOT WITHSTANDING ….. charges pressed OR NOT ….. your statement is a LIE …………

          • zampogna

            Good luck charging a consenting couple with anything.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            many, many HAVE ….. and have POLICE RECORDS to show for it …….

          • zampogna

            You’re welcome to present them. There is no crime against consent.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            you are welcome to go to any of the states that do it and fact check ……

          • zampogna

            No need. They do not prosecute cases of consent. Only abuse.

          • Sedagive

            You are welcome to provide a link to any of these cases you claim happened.

          • zampogna

            I tried that. Crickets.

    SOLDIERS PLEAD FOR RELEASE FROM ‘TRANSGENDER TRAINING’

    • Sedagive

      How is transgender training in the military violating someone’s religious free exercise right?

      • Amos Moses – He>i

        google the story ………

        • Sedagive

          You made the claim. It’s your job to back it up.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope …. i posted a headline ….. you can read the story …. or dont … i do not care ……….

          • zampogna

            Here’s why you should always back up your stories. You could be linking an entirely false news story, and the source of information would be an indicator of that (unless you are deliberately trying to suppress that information, in which case letting people know about it shows you are not hiding anything).

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            so if you want to dispute it … then read the story and do so … i do not care ……….

          • zampogna

            You haven’t really presented the story. The most you’ve done is make people think there is a story.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            google it ……

          • zampogna

            You presented the story. Others should not have to do your work.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            The Federalist reported:

            Late into President Obama’s last term, his military officials allowed transgender soldiers to serve openly, even funding gender-change surgeries with taxpayer dollars. Former Defense Secretary Ash Carter set a July 1 deadline for all four military branches to write policies for accepting openly transgender enlistments. Formerly, soldiers exhibiting gender dysphoria were automatically discharged.

            The force-wide presentation sheds quite a bit of light on the implications of the rule change on transgender service members. The policy prioritizes subjective feelings over combat-readiness and inverts military order by placing the needs of individuals over the well-being of their units.

            The policy allows transgender soldiers to switch their “gender marker” in the Army’s personnel database without undergoing sex reassignment surgery or any other physical changes.

            For a soldier to officially change gender requires only some paperwork. A military doctor or civilian medical professional must certify that the transgender person has achieved “stability in the preferred gender” and the soldier must change the gender designation on the soldier’s passport or birth certificate. From that point on, the transgender soldier is “expected to adhere to all military standards associated with their gender,” and “use the billeting, bathroom and shower facilities” of their new gender.

          Your apostasy will not go unpunished by God. The criminal filth of your religion is as sickness in the face of Jesus. The longer you hold out without repentance, the greater will be the likelihood that God will burn you for all eternity. Repent and be saved!!!!

          • Craig Anderson

            Sedagive – God is what you choose it to be – to mean, I do believe in Jesus Christ, but irrespective of that, there is this thing called the 1st Amendment, which give you the choice to worship as you see fit.

            But a tolerant society does not denigrate someone else’s beliefs – unless you’re a “tolerant liberal” – that faction of people want to ram their beliefs down everyone else’s throat

          • Sedagive

            Incorrect. A tolerant society doesn’t reject someone’s right to have a belief. You can believe whatever you wish. You can have an opinion, a thought, whatever. We don’t care. But we reserve the right to test it, to criticize it, to demean it, to force you to defend it.

          • Jason Evans

            Incorrect. Tolerance is neither about agreement nor about being silent in the face of the horrible practices of your terrible and criminal religion. What it is actually about is NOT using the State or the law in any form to destroy you or remove your liberties. For instance, liberals like myself will continuously tell you that you in fact are completely apostate. But we will not attempt to pass laws to force you to marry gays or to open your churches to the very pariahs upon whose backs you build your highly cohesive tribal communities of filth.

            But for you, it is very different, isn’t it? You have entire industries and lobby groups dedicated to using the laws to remove the liberties of the people you consider to be pariahs. You double down with lies and sickness and you never stop in your attempt to destroy others.

            And so we will never be silent in the face of the crimes you commit. And we will never be silent about the fact that what you practice is actually not Christianity but apostasy. You have soiled the name of Christ.

      Christ said that we would see that during the last days…He likened the last days as in the days of Lot. Every person in Sodom, including children, was going to be involved in the sexual assault of two men. Legalised pedophilia is what the homosexual activist groups are after…it’s the reason they’re forcing kindergartners through their “saturation period”. They want the youngest children fully indoctrinated to the point that they too will become just as perverted as they are…just like in the days of Lot.

    • zampogna

    There should be a ban on the import of sex robots designed to look like children, the author of a new report into the phenomenon has said.
    Prof Noel Sharkey said that society as a whole needed to consider the impact of all types of sex robots.
    His Foundation for Responsible Robotics has conducted a consultation on the issue.
    Only a handful of companies were currently making sex robots, said Prof Sharkey.
    But, he added, the upcoming robot revolution could change that.
    The report, Our Sexual Future With Robots, was written to focus attention on an issue barely discussed at the moment, he said.
    The report acknowledged that finding out how many people actually owned such robots was difficult because the companies that made them did not release the numbers.
    But, said Prof Sharkey, it was time society woke up to a possible future where humans and robots had sex.
