God Hates Fangs

true blood season 1

I recently started binge watching True Blood.  I know, I know, I might take a hit on the point balance on my gay card for getting such a late start.  There is only so much time in the day and after working, trying to run QL, and having a little bit of life, I have been remiss in not enjoying this show.  While it’s certainly not the greatest show I’ve ever seen I have enjoyed and I wanted to post a blog about my biggest takeaway from the first season.

BOOK REVIEW – “What the Bible Really Says about Homosexuality”

As Father Helminiak points out, the Bible has no concept of homosexuality, which is a modern concept and word. What one can study is what the Bible says about what we would class as some forms of homosexual behavior. But the biblical authors lacked the concept, and so could not classify anything as homosexual.

Pastor Joel Osteen opens up about God and homosexuality

The mega-church pastor insists that God ‘accepts you, he approves of you.’ And when pressed during a recent interview if that included gay people, the televangelist offered a surprising answer.   
“I’m not trying to get them to join my religion, I’m just trying to plant a seed of hope in their heart.”
