Ian McKellen vs. Hotel Bibles McKellen comments on cutting up Gideon Bibles he comes across in hotels:

“I’m not proudly defacing the book,” he asserts, “but it’s a choice between removing that page and throwing away the whole Bible.
McKellen says his actions have inspired others to do the same. “I got delivered a package of 40 of those pages that had been torn out by a married couple I know. They put them on a bit of string so that I could hang it up in the bathroom.”

Using tolerance as the battering ram by which you smash books, excise thoughts and suppress opinion? Now that’s progressive!

How libs “stand on principle” – destroy someone’s property.

I found it disgusting that he got to play Gandalf. His homosexuality is getting worst and worst the older he gets. I am sick of these bitches… but then again his head shall remain safely on his shoulders… he will though get respect when he starts tearing up Korans… however I am sure he likes to have his head remain safely on his shoulders…

The rump ranger must not like the fact that there are biblical versus condemning homosexuality.

Feel free to live your life, but don’t impede upon those who live differently than those of you within the gay mafia.

The one thing Bending Over Ian should remember. Christianity doesn’t stone or throw gays from 3 or 4 story buildings with nothing but the ground as a landing pad.

Pretty much anything a leftist accuses anyone of, they are already doing.

In the end it won’t make any difference. He’s merely deluding himself that tearing out these pages changes a Bible to condone his lifestyle. The reality is that it doesn’t change one thing.

The Left can rationalize anything: I was hurt because I’m gay so I can deface bibles that belong to someone else, but it’s okay because I’m open about it and at least I don’t destroy the whole bible. The question becomes: Why NOT destroy the whole bible? Oh because some of it is alright with you. How sweet of you.

It amazes me how the gay folks align themselves with people who don’t have a choice (Black, Hispanic, White, Jew, etc.) with their sin of choice.

LOL, had no idea this McKellen idiot is gay. I guess (as an LGBT myself) i don’t really give a sh*t what he is. Besides idiot. If he rips out a page from the Bible but not any other authorized holy book, well, you know what we say about discrimination, right?

Hint: He who smelled it dealt it.

That’s only the militant gays. There are plenty of normal, right thinking, gays, that just want to live their lives quietly, without making assholes of themselves, like McKellen.

as with all fringe groups, as much as any other group, there is all sorts of dissension among them. i’m just not a big group kinda guy.

in fact, when i was in college, one of my profs decided to take me (yes, just me personally) into greenwich village to show me around, as if i was in need of finding my people. now THAT i find to be pretty effing discriminatory, if you asked me. how dare she pigeon-hole me, but even more so, assume i needed to be around “my own kind?” what if i were to have taken her to a black neighborhood, since she was black, so she can “find” and mingle with her own kind? as an 18-year-old, i think i knew better than that. as a professor, why didn’t she?)

see where i’m coming from? i lived this BS kumbaya in the 70’s and i know it to be complete BS, indeed. it’s a way to increase the fist-pumping numbers, and nothing else, regardless if they realize why they do it.

What did she think, that you were going to have an epiphany, and suddenly become a flaming flit? Why can’t these jackasses just let people live their own lives, instead of trying to turn them into some kind of caricature?

i have no answer for that, really. i just keep seeing groups that complain about diversity and they themselves are anything but diverse. i don’t get it either.

BTW, friends of mine who are making strictly gay items (non-offensive t-shirts) for purchase, have recently been complaining about entities such as the NFL hi-jacking their niche business. (The NFL has been selling gay-themed t-shirts, along with other large businesses, rendering yet again small proprietors to spend more on advertising to get their market-shares up.)

so much for diversity. LOL. no queer has brought this up in their bible complaints.

“There are plenty of normal, right thinking, gays…” naw.

It is written: If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

Because 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.

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And 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.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Some parts of the bible urge us to remain celibate… all of us. Ecclesiastes and even St Paul in his letters have spoken on that. And also, some parts tell us it’s wrong to eat dairy w/ meat, eat pork, or sleep w/ wives during menses, etc. Luckily, over time, the various popes have decided to pull some things off the list for Christians.

But, just for the record, not all queers practice fornication with either gender. It’s called abstinence.

Thanks for the hell-fire wishes, just the same, fellow sinner. 🙂

I’m saved by Grace through faith, and that not of myself but it is a gift of God. And it wasn’t the rc popes that removed the restrictions. Rather it is Jesus who made it possible for people to be saved not by following rules (which the Old Testament taught, (much as a classical tutor taught students) the way to live. Abstinence is laudable. But to think that homosexuality is endemic among people is an absurd lie.by the light of Jesus we know what is sin.
keep in mind, if you feel condemned it’s not my words, but those of the Ancient of Days.

also: just because people don’t believe in Jesus doesn’t change the fact that he is LORD

Yes, Paul says to be celibate, but if that’s too difficult then a man should get one wife (and every woman should get her own husband).

The marriage of man and woman is not denigrated, but just placed below that of a life given up completely to contemplation of holy matters.

It SUGGESTS that we should all be celibate; it doesn’t COMMAND us to. It offers us celibacy as the greater life, but thoroughly understands that few of us will go down that road.

You are INTENTIONALLY misreading it (and intentionally misleading everyone who reads your comment) for the purposes of excusing yourself.

RGB
Member

no, i have taken the suggestion, rather. not too many have. it’s rather difficult, actually. so i don’t go around suggesting it much and most people don’t even know it’s been suggested.

regardless. i do what i do, and you do what you do. i don’t come here to make anyone feel bad, or to like me or defend me.

most of us here, from how i see it, enjoy making fun of a lot of stuff we disagree with, and those are the objects posted to which we hurl our delightful ramblings. sometimes, it even borders on one or more of the seven deadly sins, but hey, we’re human and we’re all sinners… regardless what excuses any of us make.

look, i’m not gonna worry about it. let’s be gentlemen and drop it. i don’t hold grudges. i don’t like going on attack or defense. peace to you, sincerely.

Over the years , my heart is always sadden when those of the Homosexual community , when claiming to be Christians , eventually get to the point where they feel God is WRONG for calling their lifestyle an abomination .

I’ve heard multiple times and understand what the term ” Lost ” acts like .

i gave 5 bucks to the gideons last week at church – they came thru to ask for funds to print more books… i don’t think it had anything to do with this, however, it was just as well.

anyways, give to gideons if you want these books replaced. i think it’s something like 20 books are printed for every 5 bucks donation.

fight back. you can also volunteer for them to place books in areas all over the country and the world. something to do if you are retired and bored. just saying. free travel. 🙂 i’d do it if it weren’t for the geriatric pets i take care of currently… perhaps some other time in my life, tho, when they’re gone.

From the Hitler playbook, Perhaps next we can burn big piles of books that do not meet the criteria of the liberal establishment. Then on to web sites, talk radio and Television (which is already state run). 70 years is all it took before history repeats itself. Damn we have short memories.

i used to belong to AA when i didn’t cheat, LOL… they had the ultimate best sayings on earth…

“people are like tea bags. they don’t work until they’re in hot water.”

we love to boast and beat our chests about a whole lotta crap, don’t we? it ain’t gonna be until shots are fired right at them that they’ll finally figure it out that they actually have enemies and that these enemies actually don’t have a problem killing them.

head pops out of butt moment.

it’ll come, only too late… as usual. holocausts & genocides have been recurring throughout civilization way before WWII. we never learn and i don’t expect we will after this one, either.

Absolutely correct! Perfect demonstration of who these leftists really are. BULLIES. They will pick on Christians because they will turn the other cheek and not fight back. But muslims will come and cut their heads off and burn down their houses with their families inside for such bullying. So as cowardly bullies go, they will pick on the weaklings and shy away from the strong. If they were really so against religion they would do this everywhere. Cowards, bullies and cowards.

Exactly.

Where’s the homosexual book so I can deface it as well…?

Question… how EXACTLY does the book prevent them from being who they are? Being told that you can’t live a certain way DOESN’T mean that you can’t live that way if you want to. We live in a world where Christians do not behead nor hang homosexuals nor set them on fire. It was wrong when it happened, but that is not how it is done. So we sorry homosexuals for the past… now get over it.
