I would like to know what happened to democracy in this country. Why is it that a few years ago we voted for PROP 22, and it was overturned now we voted for PROP8 and now our governor is telling the people against PROP 8 to hang in there we will fine a way to overturn PROP 8. What happened to our rights,why is it that someone who choses an alternative life style gets to redifine our believes of marige to us.
What Yeshua ben Josef may think of anything today is pure speculation. What he may have thought or said was second hand at best. The Ponzi scheme promoted by his followers proved to be successful in time after the Greco-Romans Hellenized Judaism. At the Council of Nicaea in the early 4th CE what was to become the bible was finally collated and certain books were arbitrarily deleted such as the Gospel of Mary because of the misogynistic bent of many of the bishops who wanted to turn Mary Magdalene into a harlot instead of Christ’s wife. By this time the Roman Empire was tottering on the verge of collapse. It was a time of diminished literacy and the social infrastructure was failing with the advent of the Christian religion that was warring amongst its various sects along with forceful prostylization of the followers of the old Greco-Roman deities. One of the major schisms that racked the Empire was the battle between those who believed that Jesus was a divine being both man and god whilst others believed that Jesus was prophet who revealed god to the gentile world.
The Emperor Diocletian’s efforts to purge the Empire of Christians failed and the religion was recognized by one of his successors, Constantine who finally accepted baptism on his deathbed. Bloody battles ensued down the centuries after the final collapse of the western empire and through a dark age that lasted a thousand years. Christians had waged crusades against other Christians, killing hundreds of thousands of Cathars, not to mention the sacking and pillaging of Constantinople while looting and killing the inhabitants of holy land.
One can only speculate that Jesus would be appalled at what has been done in his name if he were alive today. Since there seems to be so much concern about the laws of Leviticus, if one law is enforced then so should the others. Sell your daughters into slavery and stone your wives. Do not eat any shellfish, etc.
