Here's a link to the news story about the kid who wore a t-shirt to school that said "Homosexuality is shameful".
As always, I'm going to speak to this controversy from my own perspective. No one else's. As I've said before, I'm only telling my/our story here. But, since Tdub and I are best friends and "in sync" on this particular issue, I'll go ahead and speak for him as well.
The wearing of that shirt is shameful. I'm thinking that the kid who wore it does not, like Tdub, struggle with unwanted same sex attraction (HOMOSEXUALITY....ah...the big BAD "H" word)
I can't help but think that Jesus would take that boy out to a big sandy spot and start writing all of his sins there in the sand. Maybe a modern day version of that would be a can of spray paint and graffiti on the school walls.
Here's the deal. There's just NO CONTEXT that makes wearing a shirt like that a good and right thing to do. There are MANY other sins that are of just as "dire" consequence to the body of Christ as this ONE. These sins don't need protests, parades, or lobbyists to exist freely in our country....they just DO. And many of them are MORE detrimental to the body of Christ than this ONE. I'm convinced that the Christian "right" has been taken in hook, line, and sinker by the lies of the evil one regarding this issue. We don't trust our own God enough to work His plan....we don't rely on the power within us through His Holy Spirit. We turn to tactics like this? We react and respond in kind to what is done to us? This is not scriptural. This is not truth in love. This is craziness.
