    Bashing Christianity without knowledge of it...

    Here's a passage the author of that article quoted to bash Christianity and The Bible :

    "Hating the sin of homosexuality but loving the sinner, they ignore the action clause of Leviticus 20:13: “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.”

    Concerning heterosexuals, conservatives read Mark 10:11, which states that “whosoever shall put away his wife and marry another commiteth adultery against her.” But they are too humane to obey Leviticus 20:10: “And the man that commiteth adultery with another man’s wife...the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.” If Christians obeyed, zealots would slaughter—based on this verse alone—half the adult U.S. population, all of the remarried and their spouses. "

    I'm sorry, but if he knew anything about Christianity he would know that Leviticus is from the Old Testament, not the New. Jesus came around for a reason...(according to Christians, of course).

    That just dismisses his entire article.
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
