In a November 23 post I said the following with regard to the odious hypocrisy of the Religious Right:
“The fact of the matter is this: Christianity is based on the principle that we are ALL born sinners and in need of a savior. Every single one of us sin every single day. Is there a difference between deliberately living in sin, such as living with a boyfriend or girlfriend prior to marriage, or living in a homosexual marriage, and actively fighting a daily tendency to gossip, lie, or disrespect your spouse? Yes. But God, and only God, can read the heart, and only He, and He alone, knows to what disgusting extent every single one of us live in deliberate sin every single day. Christians have zero moral leg to stand on with regard to anything, let alone legislating morality.
“Would Jesus Christ not have fed a homosexual couple in the feeding of the five thousand? Would Jesus Christ have denied a lifelong homosexual next to Him on the cross passage into eternity with Him if said homosexual confessed his sins and proclaimed eternal belief in Him?”

In my Bible reading this morning I came across a pertinent follow-up, John 8:2-11 (NKJV):
At the risk of extraneous repetition, verse 7 is precisely what I was referring to on November 23: “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.”
