No, Kokuto’s statement is correct. They said “some of the most hypocritical humans around in it”. The key word is some… They did not say “all”, but “some” and that is fairly accurate.
Let me give you an example of what hypocrisy is… I read several times over the years that Russia is a country where abortion as birth control was and is still very much practised.
Some facts on Russia: more abortions than births per year, a large percentage of woman having had anywhere from 5 to 7 abortions, teenagers waiting until their 3rd trimester to abort.
Yet, Vladimir Putin is blaming homosexuality for a decrease in birth rates in Russia, and his Orthodox Church-influenced govt. recently passed draconian anti-gay laws that led to assault, torture and even murder of many LGBTs including minors. Russian authorities are doing nothing to capture, arrest, try and punish those perpetrators, many of whom filmed themselves committing those attacks, then posted everything online.
Heard of the situation in France?! Ever since a bill allowing same-sex marriage and adoption of children by same-sex couples was announced, hundreds of thousands of anti-equality folks haven’t stopped RIOTING & RIOTING like crazy!
France Adopts Marriage Equality
"Christian, Muslim, and Jewish religious leaders as well as conservative politicians supported the demonstrations against legalizing same-sex marriage."
I’m Canadian and I never ever saw such a thing in Canada when the same LGBT rights were made legal in 2005. Not even once! And I live in a very populous city.
But in France! A completely different story. I know non-believers and people of other faiths might also be anti-equality but a very huge number of protesters belong(ed) to the Abrahamic religions.
Now, there are mayors refusing to officiate same-sex weddings, even though it’s now fully legal! Same-sex couples affected by such illegal refusal must now take those mayors to court!
I understand many Christians are in fact pro-equality. There are even some pro-equality Christian Churches. We’re not saying ALL Christians are automatically bigoted and anti-equality but it’s an undeniable fact that a very, very, very HUGE number of Christians around the world oppose equality.
I see anti-equality and anti-gay comments all the time, every single day, and many of such comments refer to homosexuality as a sin and an abomination.
Just watch this video and you’ll see how homosexuality is demonized explicitly because of words from the Bible… It’s just one example that represents hundreds of more videos online…
Lady Gaga - Applause | satanic symbolism and fame obsession
These links also condemn homosexuality because of words from the Bible. A few links that represent thousands of online articles:
I was told some Biblical verses against homosexuality might be mistranslations or simply taken out of the cultural context of the time… Still! It doesn’t change the fact that most people that read such passages see those as clear condemnations of homosexuality.
Passages by Apostle Paul (in the New Testament) were explicit enough, and appeared to condemn both lesbianism & male homosexuality. Some say he was only referring to temple prostitution… And what about the verses that referred to females?
I’m sorry but one needs to be very naive to believe Paul was only referring to male shrine prostitutes…
New International Version
18The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.
20For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
21For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.
24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
26Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
King James Bible
18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27And 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.
GOD’S WORD® Translation
18God’s anger is revealed from heaven against every ungodly and immoral thing people do as they try to suppress the truth by their immoral living. 19What can be known about God is clear to them because he has made it clear to them.
20From the creation of the world, God’s invisible qualities, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly observed in what he made. As a result, people have no excuse. 21They knew God but did not praise and thank him for being God. Instead, their thoughts were pointless, and their misguided minds were plunged into darkness. 22While claiming to be wise, they became fools. 23They exchanged the glory of the immortal God for statues that looked like mortal humans, birds, animals, and snakes.
24For this reason God allowed their lusts to control them. As a result, they dishonor their bodies by sexual perversion with each other. 25These people have exchanged God’s truth for a lie. So they have become ungodly and serve what is created rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen!
26For this reason God allowed their shameful passions to control them. Their women have exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27Likewise, their men have given up natural sexual relations with women and burn with lust for each other. Men commit indecent acts with men, so they experience among themselves the punishment they deserve for their perversion.
You see! According to ALL translations, it’s really what Apostle Paul wrote. More translations here: http://biblehub.com/romans/1-27.htm
Some told me Apostle Paul was not so reliable, wrote those words a long time after Jesus was crucified and so on… The thing is many, many, numerous Christians believe the Bible is God’s Word, even if written by men.
Granted, there are lots of Biblical rules and admonishments Christians no longer follow but anything related to homosexuality still applies to them… Of course!
