Jesus had female apostles, and was all for gender equality.
Guess who was not? Men, as usual we have used are physical strength and power to hold back rights for women, and it is still happening today.
Why did the church paint Mary as a prostitute, why are the females apostles rarely mentioned and not know by many?

from a historical aspect; considering the average life expectancy for male Jews was around 30-40 years in the 1st century, it would be reasonable to assume he was dead.
From a Biblical standpoint, he did not play a direct role in Christianity and thus was left out.

I know the full stupidity that is the OT, NT and christianity in general to be so ignorant and outdated as to call something natural and noramal as homosexuality a "sin" (whatever that is) and homosexuals abominations unto god.
The Christian religion in general is anti-gay.....EVERYONE knows that.
If there really is a god, he has no idea the thoughts of that god, again, this is why ALL religions are flawed.
But whatever, let's pretend that Chris is simply following his stupid religion's policies, it also says judge not so you may not be judged...
But he's perfectly fine saying that the gay lifestyle is sinful and Jason is conversely a sinner. The self-righteousness is nauseating.
Look at my murder example again. Can I have tolerance on something I view as inherently wrong?
This isn't like lying or stealing or even defensible murder......Chris and many christians believe homosexuality is inherently wrong and sinful there are no ifs, ands, or buts.
If you are a homosexual you are a walking sinner on the path of open rebellion against their magical genie.
The only reason I made this thread is because Chris Broussard has influence power, he is talking on the biggest sports network in the world and millions will hear what he says.....he is free to do that, and I am free to rebut his statement and make my opinion known.
A side whose arguments are grounded on nothing?
Why does Chris think Homosexuals are sinners......because a book told him.
What a wonderful argument.
A book also told me magic is real and people can fly on brooms.Logic and Reason is all you need.

well, the book was not written by Jesus, so to say "in general Christianity is against homosexuality" is generally wrong.

If tomorrow Christianity changes, so will my views.
But I know that's not going to happen.
The bible is evil to the core, a group of people have chosen to follow what it says...if they really wanted to clean up their bad reputation, then take ALL the evil stuff out.
Take the OT out, take all the passages about Homosexuality out.
You'll be left with the majority of the gospels.....that wouldn't be so bad, right?
And better yet, since the ENTIRE bible was written by man....why not leave the stuff about Jesus in, and write a new bible filled with UPDATED rules based on the modern world.
Make sure to include that one should NOT judge any human period.
They live their lives differently than you, that doesn't mean they are sinful or in rebellion to your sky genie.

wrong again, nothing was written by Jesus, nothing.
for nearly four hundred years after Jesus, no Bible existed, so were there no Christians?
and you are incorrect when saying all of Christianity does, but I will give you most Christians in modern times does.
don't need an updated version, because it just will repeat again. Christians need to be concerned about what Jesus taught, the meaning of His message, not what people are telling us the message was or could have been.
The Bible, like any tool, can be used for good or bad, it just depends on who is using it and their skill.
