I went to a religious high school (I found the movie Saved! to be especially hilarious). Apart from the 'homosexuality is a choice' stuff, what struck me then, and even more so now, as confusing is what makes 'sexual sin' the worst kind of sin? Who was it who ranked the victimless sins (for example: gluttony, vanity, lust, sloth, envy) and using what criteria? Why are the sexual sins (under lust) the worst ones? How come we don't hear people say God hates the lazy, or those who get plastic surgery. Or why doesn't eating an extra piece of pizza endanger your salvation? For that matter what makes lust worse than some sins with victims: like being intolerant?
In other news, I found out that Marc Cherry, creator of Desperate Housewives, is one of us--i mean, of course, a Republican (everyone already knew he was gay). Maybe that's why the Republican Bree, who is based on Marc's own mother, is still somewhat sympathetic despite having had initial problems with her son's orientation. Look at the very end of this article. Fun!
