  2. She's great, love her. But wouldn't it be awesome if she could say all of this on Cristian Broadcast Network shows like 700 Club?

  3. Kristin's talent is magical and her personality is beautiful.

  4. There are no gods, so that entire conversation is ridiculous.

    But as long as a person leaves me alone, it doesn't matter to me what they think.

    It's always nicer to have friends than enemies, and friends don't have to agree on everything, and Kristen is certainly a great friend for us to have.

  6. Why not be Christian and pro-gay, or Muslim and pro-pork, or a Jehova's Witness and celebrate your birthday? Considering these religions are just superstitions for idiots, you can invent your own rules as you go. It's all imaginary.

  7. What a wonderful lady. As a fan of Kristin's, I've always wondered how she reconciled her Christian faith with her support of the LGBT community. It's neat to hear that she's comfortable not only possessing these controversial, conflicting beliefs, but also discussing them in a public forum.

  8. Regardless of whether you believe the same things she does, the fact is she does, as many millions do in this country. But she believes that the religion supports gay men and women. You aren't going to change the core of this religion from the outside by dismissing it but she can change a few minds from inside it.

  9. This woman is dellusional, don't know what bible she reads but God is specific on his thoughts of man with man and woman with woman, it's immoral and vile. Read - Romans 1:24-28. She can sugarcoat it all she wants but god's word is gods word and you can't change it to fit what you want it to be. Leviticus 20:13 reads, "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."
    It's all an abomination against god, he loves us but he has rules and you must obey them or you can't enter into heaven. This is fact no matter what anyone has to say!!!!

  10. Okay, nutty Tori. I don't want to be in your heaven anyway. There are several other afterlife options more appealing anyway than spending eternity with crazies like you.

  11. @Tori

    Leviticus also says that eating shrimp and wearing mixed blend clothes is an abomination - do you have a problem with that too? If not, you should, or you'll be joining all of the loving, creative, artistic kind people in hell! The Christian god is guilty of genocide, accepting incest (Lot's family, for example) and allowing men to marry hundreds of wives and concubines who are then viewed as property.

    I'd NEVER want to go to any heaven that would accept even 1% of "Christians," so I have no problems with having an entirely different destination.

  12. @Tori:

    You're a boring ass hypocrite hateful Christian,

    Love God. :)

  13. @ Tori - Did you really listen to her? Do you really believe in all that Levitcus says? Really? Because if you followed the Bible to a 'T', then you'd be in jail right now. Stone any adulters lately, hun?

  14. You can all bash me if you want but the truth hurts. The bible also says that the truth shall set you free, how sad that all of you choose to blind yourselves to it. When Jesus died on the cross he said,"Father forgive them for they know not what they do".

  15. @Tori

    please explain to me what the purpose of "Messiah" was? Was it not to be the final interpreter of G-Ds will? To be the example, to interpret the Law for all?

    I don't think the prophets spoke of a prophet that would come after Jesus to "explain" or "clarify" what he had to say. The Gospels are quite clear and are fully understandable.

    Paul is in direct contradiction to Jesus several times over, so honestly...I could care less that you're quoting Romans. I follow what Jesus had to say. As a follower and lover of Jesus the Messiah and Christ my allegiance is to him and not some dude who showed up later to try and reverse everything the early church had accomplished.

    I think you and others who put the Paulean writings above that of the Gospels are going to have a RUDE awakening some day.

    When you can tell me what Jesus said about "sin", "sexuality" and how Jesus thinks homosexuals are going to hell then we'll chat.

    --oh, and dear, tell it to me in Koine so I can understand your position, since I've read the Gospels in their original language and I could debate this for hours.

    If you read Hebrew we can do that too when speaking of the Law.

  16. Oh tori,

    Funny that you think we are delusional. You are delusional, to think you speak for or know God. Assuming there is a Christian God, which many billions don't believe in, who's to say an ignorant person like you would know what he wants? Because some popes thousands of years ago, who had political agendas, wrote it in a book, you believe it is what God wants. You don't even understand the original text nor do you care about certain laws that the "unchanging" God supported at one point in history. You, like most Christians, pick and chose which laws are still important to God. You read figuratively where it suits you and literally where it allows you to judge others. Get off your high horse, live your life by whatever faith or moral code suits you and allow others to do the same. God doesn't need your Eli judging others.

  17. Eli should've been help. Darn autocorrect.

  19. the bible is a bigger fairytale than the brother's grimm or aesop. tori you believe the
    earth was created in 7 days. the people in the bible also kept slaves had many wives and concubines. if adam and eve had two children both boys where the hell did everyone else come from.

  20. @Tori: Yes the truth does indeed hurt homophobe and that is exactly what YOU are moron. Great way to instill VALUES into your children btw hypocritical Christian teach them the values of hate thats what Christianity has always been founded on anyways.

    Posted by: Michael | Sep 15, 2011 10:52:42 AM


  21. @Tori, Tori, Tori, Tori. You clearly miss the entire message from God. It's all about LOVE. Regardless of what anyone believes or doesn't believe in regards to "the bible" or "Christianity" God really only has one message for all and that is to love one another. You seem to lack that ability to love because you are too busy condemning others. If you truly believe in this "god" that you claim you believe in, then you shouldn't worry about other people or their beliefs. But the fact that you are so quick to condemn, judge and hurl out varies antiquated verse, then perhaps you really don't have any faith whatsoever, sounds more like fear. Fear leads to hate and murder and torture, which has all been done in the name of a "so called god". Focus on LOVE and your own existence, stop wasting your time, and space with your negativity.
