Posted to a "Emergant" blog today

It's always interesting to me that members of the "tolerance" movement no matter what guise it may come under are only tolerant to what they believe. Therefore, if Driscoll disagrees and takes a stand for something he believes is true, but is in disharmony with the pervailing "tolerant" wind then he is intolerant. I'm sorry but the real underlying problem is that Emergant culture will not admit that the ideas they are putting forth are indeed propositions all truth is propositional. So when people like Grenz and McLaren make comments saying they do not know something and therefore nobody else does either, that is in and of itself a proposition. In conclusion, to get back to the homosexuality issue. The Bible is clear, it does not mince words (in fact sexual sins are usually when found in a list, listed first) homosexuality is wrong. This does not mean we should be hateful to them. I have two gay family members, so I have experienced the relational side of this sin. However, it is a sin, no greater no less than any other. Therefore, if repented of, must be forgiven like any other sin. Its time to quit reading our Bibles through our political and social lenses.
