The Most Offensive Verse in the Bible

Dan Phillips of Pyromaniac fame has an outstanding post today on how to answer some of those “what about” issues that people seem to bring up, issues like gay marriage, abortion, and homosexuality, to name a few of the current hot topics.  How do you respond to someone when they ask.  I suggest that you head on over to the Pyromaniacs website and read an interesting way of dealing with this.

While I don’t normally delve into politics, this quote by Douglas Wilson is right on the mark.  You can read the entire article that this was taken from here:

When a rape results in a pregnancy, this means that we are now dealing with three people instead of two. Two of those three are innocent, and one of them is guilty. Take a case of violent rape. The pro-choice ghouls want to do two things — first, they want to go easy on the guilty one, refusing to execute him, while executing one of the innocent parties for something his father did, and secondly, they want to make out anyone who objects to this arrangement as the callused one. – Douglas Wilson
