We must expel the Pharisees and the Talmudites and the Sodomites from amongst us.

1 Corinthians 5
11 But now I am writing you that you must not associate with anyone who calls himself a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a slanderer, a drunkard or a swindler. With such a man do not even eat.
12 What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside?
13 God will judge those outside. "Expel the wicked man from among you."

Non-Christians really don't and can't understand Christians, and thus can never be competent to critique Christians.  An example is when they say things like:

It is a sin of the worst sort when an individual puts himself in the position of interpreting the Word of God according to his own subjective opinions.

Usually non-Christians follow up that charge by doing just that, by saying things like:

Fundamentalists, such as yourself have conveniently jettisoned one half of Christian tradition and kept the other. You have kept the bible but thrown overboard the LIVING tradition of the Christian church.

They set themselves up to be the final arbiter of what the Holy Bible is and what Christians think, immediately after they acknowledge that it is a sin to do so.  Even worse, they use the word "fundamentalists" to attempt to divide Christians into groups that they like and groups that they don't like, when in reality Christians are far more uniform in our opinions and principles than non-Christians dare to acknowledge. This is really  the fact of life which non-Christians are so worried about.

They really can't point out exactly which Christian traditions that "fundamentalists" have allegedly jettisoned.  Their real concern is that Christians haven't jettisoned any principles at all.  They are justified in worrying, because none have been jettisoned.  Inferring that they have is as good as the best straw man argument used by the most skillful feminist.

There is no doubt that our courts and congressmen have attmpted to jettison quite a few Christian principles, but this ignores the operational point:  the vast majority of the American population have never abandoned the Christian principles which once made this nation great.

In other words, every poll we know of shows that the vast majority of Americans, not just Christians, still adhere to each and every principle of the Holy Bible upon which our Constitution was founded.  Non-Christians can't find a single one which has been "jettisoned by Christians".  Not even one of them.

The "debate" about homosexuality [read: sodomy] as a classic example, a favorite amongst "liberals". When Bishop Spong married sodomites in the church, he not only insulted the majority of his own congregation because the majority of them voted NO, but he slapped the face of God.   Every poll ever conducted about sodomy, no matter how obscurely worded, shows that a majority of Americans uphold the historic principles of the Holy Bible, and that they reject moral minors like Bishop Spong.  Even the 2% of the population which is Muslims, and the 1.9% which is Jews, and the less than 1% which is Buddhists, are members of world religions which offically OPPOSE sodomy.

There is nothing in the Holy Bible, in any major church denomination, in any law to date in this country, in our fundamental human values, in science, in history, in philosophy, which dictates that Christians must "love" or condone sodomy, which is practiced by less than 1% of the population. We hold it up to be a sin and a crime, and Bishop Spong to be a sinner and a criminal, under existing laws of both God and man.

These are facts of life.  They don't require any "interpretation" of God's law.  Little children know this without your even telling them.  The sodomites who deny these facts are LIARS!  Sodomites claim that they just want the right to practice their amorality in "privacy", when in fact 75,000 high school boys across this land report that they have had UNWANTED homosexual relations.  They weren't raped by dogs or cats, they were raped by LYING fags who falsely claimed that things just don't happen!

No!  Christians do not accept this, and they never will, no matter what kinds of perverted rulings our courts issue.  When our detractors say things like:

Your remarks about Jews, homosexuals etc. strike me as sailing dangerously close to those neo-nazi churches that also claim to be Christian.

their argument against Christianity reaches the lows previously achieved only by feminists.  Accusing Christians of being "neo-nazis" is a very good debate tactic--but it doesn't work.

Matthew 15

1Then some Pharisees and teachers of the law came to Jesus from Jerusalem and
asked,
2 "Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? They don't wash
their hands before they eat!"
3  Jesus replied, "And why do you break the command of God for the sake of your
tradition?
4  For God said, `Honor your father and mother' and `Anyone who curses his
father or mother must be put to death.'
5  But you say that if a man says to his father or mother, `Whatever help you
might otherwise have received from me is a gift devoted to God,'
6  He is not to `honor his father' with it. Thus you nullify the word of
God for the sake of your tradition.
7 You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you:
8  "`These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.
9  They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men.' "
