The Welcome

I could come up with a reason why this is totes related to intellectual freedom issues, but I’m not going to bother because it’s just too adorable not to share. Enjoy, my good readers! I’ll have a review of infamous banned children’s book Captain Underpants up this weekend. Until then, happy May Day and happy Beltaine!

    Romans1: 27….Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

    Indeed, what does your little passage mean to anyone who doesn’t believe that certain relationships are ‘shameful’? Even if your holy peeps are holy, it doesn’t mean they’re right about everything. They’re just as infallible as the rest of us.

      Indeed. And then there’s this: “Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. The commandments, ‘You shall not commit adultery,’ ‘You shall not murder,’ ‘You shall not steal,’ ‘You shall not covet,’ and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law”. Romans 13:8-10
