Quote:My response is clear. The Bible forbids numerous activities. And calls for the death penalty for some of them in modern interpretations. Why do conservative Christians only selectively read some things and not others, even when common language is used?
It is hypocritical. That is the long and short of it. They do mark an x on homosexuality. It is discussed in sermons and a key issue to the religious right that has disproportionate power. And it is what you hear many people discuss when they talk about faith.
One rarely hears much else. That could be because it is more hot button but there are six passages about homosexuality. Not even a term from that age. There are 3000 or more on poverty. There are hundreds about caring for widows.
Many of these same people would say it is up for a widow to take care of themselves. Hell, the Bible does a questionable job about even defining marriage in the first place.
In the US, they have the right to believe what they want, but that does not mean they are not hypocrites. And if they are inconsistent than they are using it as support for their preconceived notions in the first place.
You mock liberals for it all of the time. But ignore it for hypocrites that support your positions.
