Whenever I read yet another article, essay, book, or blog on the Bible and homosexuality, I feel exactly the same way as Murray's character did, caught in an endlessly repeating loop of Bible bashing. This cycle must end, now.
A lawmaker says something anti-gay while hiding behind the Bible, our community demands an apology, the lawmaker refuses to back down, and finally the lawmaker is looked upon by some as a hero for supposedly standing up for Biblical principal.
Rep. Andy Gipson is likely a good man. In this instance he just said some really thoughtless, hurtful things. I realize again that so often it isn't the person so much as the ideas that we need to reject in our society. To wish harm on this man is to repeat the mistake he made.
