See if you can use a better word than "pride".nobody likes proud people, it's repulsive and makes one feel unconfortable
Pride in the context of this is not the same, but I'd imagine, nay, even bet $ that you've been told this by others already.pastor is correct though in saying that pride is evil.
it's not even about God or the bible, fact is that pride is antisocial behavior.
I'd be shocked if someone hasn't just brought out how the word has multiple definitions, even posted them. Only a few are necessarily negative in the specific context. Is it bad to have pride in your community, like your hometown or your state or your favorite sports team? And in the context of a month that was about 2 months ago at this point, it has another meaning more related to the awareness of your dignityNo it's not, it's all about friendship with out the hatred metered out by bigots
You clearly didn't read the law in context, it says there are limits to free speech, it is not an absolute, even in religious expression. There's also precedent that religious speech can constitute conduct same as speech in general and thus is not protected in the same way as mere beliefHe broke no law, it's his right to preach in "all forms":

All that calling oneself a Christian means in the real world that we all inhabit is that one belief eves that there is a god, that one is born sinful and that Jesus is the way and the door to salvation from the wages of blah blah blah.
And you know that how, exactly?
Then you deny that God's will is written in any other scripture, yes? Or that God's will can be written by God directly into the hearts of individual humans, yes? Only what is in the Bible is God's will, yes?...
Which explains why LBGP.
Did you seriously just try to smuggle pedophiles into this discussion about homosexuality?Children are not sexual. If you disagree, please explain why?
Sexuality is something that develops as person grows and it can be compared to taste for food. People learn to like different foods and learn different eating habits. For example most people have learned to eat through a mouth, because it is reasonable and food tastes better that way. Not many try to eat trough their ear, even though ear is also hole in a head. Similarly, there are reasonable and unreasonable ways to satisfy sexual appetite. Some people develop a bad taste in sexuality that is not reasonable and not good for their health. Bad taste can develop if person has experiences that leads him to seek satisfaction in a way that is not reasonable. One can unlearn bad habits and one can also learn bad habits, they are not programmed to persons mind in the birth. If you disagree, please tell one example and how it was programmed?
That is why I say, people are not born gay, they are groomed to it. Which explains why LBGP... people want to push their alphabet propaganda for small children. That is the best time to mess their development and guide them to a bad taste.
Being gay isn't a sex act. Just like being "straight" isn't a sex act.By God's law it is. It's called fornication. God didn't create man to lay with man or a woman to lay with a woman, it's not natural. God also doesn't recognize the marriage between a man and a man or a woman to a woman.
Could you point out where you think I've done that?It's funny how you say I'm generalizing, but in same time you don't see yourself generalizing on Christians, is this not hypocrisy?
There is nothing wrong in patriotism or belonging to a group.
But there is a line when pride stops being reasonable and becomes repulsive and counter productive.
It's very simple, if you live by OT you can't call yourself Christian, Christians are literary Christ's followers and live by NT.
If somebody thinks we should live by the Jewish law (like this pastor), he's subject to law not to Jesus, and thus is not Christian but rather Jew.
An putting me into the same basket as this "pastor" is not insulting and ignorant and stupid?
Do you think he represents Christians or what Christianity is?
Have you never read John 8:1-11
Do you not find this "pastor" contradictory to Jesus' teachings?
I can understand you don't like what this pastor is saying, but what does this have to do with Christianity really?
See your post #41Could you point out where you think I've done that?
Or is this just an attempt at deflection?
Or you could just speak to the point. That would be nice.
What are those limits? please quote from source.You clearly didn't read the law in context, it says there are limits to free speech
Door knockers are a very specific group of people that do a very specific thing - knock on doors to spread the word of their religious beliefs.
No. Are you planning on addressing the point sometime?Beside that, isn't your position that this pastor represent Christianity?
What are those limits? please quote from source.
yes I'm stereotyping because stereotyping is obviously the language of gay people and gay supporters as you can see for yourself in this thread.And actually what I told you is that you're stereotyping. You have yet to address it. All you've done is attempt to deflect from it, since I pointed it out.
You are making a facile sweeping generalisation. Define child, define sexual? Humans mature slowly, and sexuality is a gradual process, we don't wake up one day having changed from child to adult. What is necessary is to teach children in a timely and factual manner, what they need to know to be safe, and to make others safe.Children are not sexual. If you disagree, please explain why?
