Jedi views on homosexuality

Re: Jedi views on homosexuality 02 May 2012 04:03 #58645

My 2 cents on this would have to be:

I no longer believe that the United States, or possibly any other country, creates laws specifically for unity, general safety, and morality. Whether it be against homosexuality, or something else harmless, the government seems to exceed expectations on making laws just to simply--well, make laws!

And on the note of YthanH, I agree completely. Another good example is The bible was translated into English from Hebrew way before we even had a complete grasp on original hebrew. They have since corrected a few things but not all is complete, and not all is original.

@ bornofosiris: You're right. The Bible has been changed and things have been forged by peolpe many times, so (in my opinion) not every thing that's in the bible should be trusted, such as the views on homosexuality. No offence intended to any "bible-lovers".
Show compassion to all living beings.
Live to serve life.

On the Bible but, the one we normally read now was translated from Greek normally which was how it was written and some hebrew and there are a lot of miss-translations in it so it is possible that Jesus was gay or had a relationship with Mary just depends which translation you take and into how of it you read

Saw this on Facebook and thought it was appropriate (apologies to those that can't see it):

A great argument against all those that quote the Bible (Old Testament) when discriminating.

To all Christians opposing homosexuality: Jesus clearly stated, that there are no Commandments greater than the Two Commandments of Love. You're not exactly loving your fellow men by hating them, do you?

"I do not demand your faith; I am not setting myself up as an authority. I have nothing to teach you - no new philosophy, no new system, no new path to reality; there is no path to reality any more than to truth. All authority of any kind, especially in the field of thought and understanding, is the most destructive, evil thing. Leaders destroy the followers and followers destroy the leaders. You have to be your own teacher and your own disciple. You have to question everything that man has accepted as valuable, as necessary."~Krishnamurti~

@akkarin

What I said before about age of consent, I am merely trying not to encourage breaking Laws that for the most part, do protect the people without taking away a disproportinate amount of freedom. There can be no arguement that laws about legal age of consent do more bad than good. Do I think there should be a way to work around them whento individuals do consent with at least a decent idea of what they are getting into, yes. Legitimate protection good, tyranny bad.
Peace be with you.

Also, keep being awesome.

    • Video Games Promoting Nationalism and War? (Last post by Kamizu)
    • My husband loves that game. Go big stompy robots! I see where you're coming from though. But I think games can provide a great immersion into another world or view. You can act out scenarios that you wouldn't normally be involved in, do, or even encounter. So you get to fight for a faction for territory. How does it feel to lose? To win? What about the other guys? How do they feel? And if you don't feel like being philosophical, well, it is just a game. I quite enjoy Grand Theft Auto but I don't condone theft, murder, or street racing. I love fantasy games but I don't condone dismembering people with swords or turning them into sheep. Personally I think that as long as there is no real-world endorsement of the things I dislike (such as funding game profits towards those things) then I don't have a problem with playing the games that do things I'm personally against. Besides, without conflict, where is the triumph that makes games worth playing? :)
    • The Grateful Thread (Last post by Kamizu)
    • I am grateful for my husband. I don't know what I would do without his help in raising our baby. I am also grateful for my space heater :D I work in an old building where the heat doesn't reach us. It doesn't heat the room but at least I have my little bubble of warmth. I'm grateful for the sauna at the base gym. It's half the reason I start working out is getting to sit in there afterwards :D And I am grateful to Alton Brown for the inspiration to start cooking and baking good eats!

    • My grandfather was full blood Cherokee, which makes me a quarter by decent. 1. Jedi Name: Kohadre 2. Cherokee name: wahaya saquii 3. Cherokee nation 4. Strong bloodline reaching back to icelandic tribes 5. Bow making, bow hunting, communing with natures spirits, fire gazing/scrying
    • Honesty - what form or type do you like? (Last post by Loudzoo)
    • I try to remember the following quote when I'm faced with an honesty conundrum: "A truth told with bad intent, beats all the lies one can invent" - William Blake Your intent is the key. Under normal circumstances I'm skeptical of "tough love" - although certain circumstances will demand it. Search your feelings for the right approach - and timing is everything! Brutal honesty can often be avoided, to be replaced with a compassionate honesty at a different time under different circumstances. Obviously lying should be avoided but "white lies" have their place :)
    • Jedi Knight in one word (Last post by Burn_Phoenix)
    • Perhaps "seeker" I.e. seeker of truth, seeker of justice, seeker of knowledge. Or "wanderer" on the path of those examples above? This thread really makes you consider semantics and connotations. Loving it :)
    • Grey Jedi Code Anyone? (Last post by Connor L.)
    • I thought I might provide some sources. Check this out: www.accessconsciousness.com/classtype_details.asp?cid=17 www.accessconsciousness.com/class_details.asp?cid=41691 There is a blog post about it too: access-consciousness-blog.com/2013/06/is...80%99re-looking-for/ "There is another way, however. The “love” you’re looking for is possible through being you, says Heer. “What if instead of striving for love you were willing to have gratitude, caring, and no judgment? If you were willing to choose that instead, it would take you out of all the judgments that are attached to that program of love.”" Access is all about deprogramming from society. For that reason, it IS considered a cult in many peoples' views. Any group that is hellbent on separating you from society is viewed that way, is it not? *shrugs* I have no judgment of that. ;)
