Comments: General Synod - Tuesday morning press reports

I am getting SO tired of this Orwellian "War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery" SPIN:

ChristianToday, "Defend Traditional Marriage": translation "Prevent (by force of law) same-sex couples from marrying"

Peter Mullen, "Trotskyite Militant Tendency, Unchurching Traditional Anglicans": translation, "Allow the Holy Spirit to work through the SAME discernment process for bishops, regardless of the sex of the candidate"

Are they so afraid their arguments will hold little-or-no moral suasion, that hysterical spin must be inserted instead?

With any religious text it is prdneut to look at the context of in which something is written. There are many people who use the Bible to promote their own agendas. There are churches that try to treat everyone equally, but a church is a collection of individuals, and as such there will always be people that rub you the wrong way, don't promote the church views, etc. People will always be people. There are Churches that while not perfect, do promote equality. There is a difference between religion and church, although in Catholicism they seem to be synonymous. There are a lot of faithful Christ followers that want nothing to do with religion. There are churches that adhere too and teach the Lord's word without taking verses out of context for any reason. As for the actual cultural and true meaning of the verses Jody has quoted, a little research will show that they are not to be taken literally and out of context. The truth is out there! ;-)
