    If given the choice, what would you do if a hate crimes law said you could no longer speak out, out loud, or in print, using so-called "hate speech" which identified one group or another as sinful or evil or lost or in need of a Savior?

    No cop-outs, please. Just answer the question. "Print" is speaking out, out loud.

    BaptistBeliever has copped out. Next post, please.........

    Didn't Jesus teach that we can sin by just thinking evil thoughts? Which is worse, thinking about something or saying it out loud?

    Mat 5:27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
    Mat 5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

    I'd continue to speak out loud, but only in the proper venue, which is church, and my home.

    I will continue to preach against homosexuality, lesbianism, adultery, fornication, licentiousness, ungodliness, and all the sins listed in the Bible, but the proper venue is behind the pulpit, in the church I pastor, or in a church where I am visiting preacher, and I don't care if any member of the group which is hit by the message is sitting in the congregation.

    I am in church, where I have the right to be, where people expect me to say what they hear, and they came in.

    However, a public place is not the proper venue.

    Just my two cents' worth.

    That's a 1/2 cop-out, pinoy, IMHO. Church services are included as part of "public speaking out". It would also include the BB and similar boards.

    I thought that the OP covered that. Maybe not.

    Folks, don't edit the criteria. In essence, you have to keep your mouth shut and your letters to the editor and other outlets quiet. ZERO public acknowledgement of your faith. Remember, it is an IF. I'm not speaking to established law in the USA. This is an IF. What will you do if your mouth is zipped shut and your fingers bound in this issue?

    Thanks!

    :jesus: :godisgood: THANK YOU 2 Timothy!!!

    Matt 10:27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops

    2 Tim 4:1-3 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine

    need more options.

    I propose we corrupt English words as the homosexuals do. They corrupted "gay." We corrupt "adore," as in "I adore homosexuals."
