Actually, I believe it's intolerance that is the main reason our world is in the pathetic state it's in. But I digress...

I don't understand how one can be christian and say that nothing is wrong with homosexuality. Your only fooling yourselves.

I went through one of these "judgement house" things as a yong teen. It did not mesh with my concept of the joy of Christ.

There is some truth to this...

Well, I don't want to get into another homosexuality debate. Doesn't the rest of the "hell house" get you angry, though?

While the first one angers me the most, the second one, suicide, angers me to a degree as well. First of all, it is completely mocking and insulting: "What's the matter boy nobody loves you? Nobody cares for you?" Now there's a "Christian response" to people in need. And, rather than worrying about the boy depicted in this suicide, it selfishly turns back into "his parents are now faced with the consequences of his actions, life without their son." While this is true and definitely a horrific turn of events, it is completely lacking in true Christian compassion. In fact, the text used on this page is written much like a school bully, taunting his victim until he breaks.

Aside from being completely judgmental and essentialist, it offends my own faith's convictions regarding suicide and surely does nothing to comfort the fictional parents in this scenario. Regarding Catholicism, it once held a view exactly like this "Hell House" did: that everyone who committed suicide automatically went to hell, and even went as far to forbid suicide victims from Catholic cemetaries. However, with Vatican II in the early 1960s and knowledge into mental health issues, which did not exist during the Biblical era, the Catholic Church no longer passes judgment on those who do commit suicide, citing that many who do commit suicide are not mentally culpable for their actions, so they reserve judgment for God, neither supporting nor condemning the action. The suicide victim, during his/her funeral, is treated honorably like anyone who has died, and is given full rights to Catholic cemetaries. To me, this is the true Christian response, rather than this horribly judgmental response given by the sects of the "Hell House."

What do you think?

Drop the issue. Why must every fucking religion topic end up on this issue? Have all Christians gone sick in the head or something? And they call "liberals" perverts? Geez. This is neither the point of the Bible, nor is it the worst of so-called "sins" in there. In all my Biblical and historical studies, nothing more has repulsed me than the "Christian response" to this issue, which has been completely nonsensical all along. I only wish people could see this issue from my perspective, but I want this issue dropped. If I have to, I'll get this thread closed, and I know the right people to do it too.
