Stacy Harp, since she has been back, has been reporting nearly daily on what is going on in Israel. Today is no different (and by the way, there is nothing inherently wrong with doing that–whoever I go away I do the same thing). However, Stacy seems to have a bad case of selective-memory. Today she reports on the cursing of gays and lesbians by some wacked-out rabbis in Israel. Their curse reads:
“To all those involved, sinners in spirit, and whoever helps and protects them, may they feel a curse on their souls, may it plague them and may evil pursue them; they will not be requitted of their transgressions from heavenly judgment.”
Stacy comments on this:
When I read this article this morning my first thought was that there is such a difference between a Christian response to sin and the curse of the Rabbis. The follower of Christ calls people to repentance and a change of mind concerning their sin. The rabbis are calling a curse down on anyone who engages in or supports them.
I wonder what her second thought was? Why do I somehow doubt that is the first thought she had regarding this? Because it was just last week that Stacy Harp writes about a proposed Israeli legislation that would ban not only Gay Pride events, but also ban anything that ‘would offend public sensitivities.’ Her one-line comment was:
"may the USA follow in Israel’s footsteps."
Does this sound like a ‘Christian response to sin’? Or a call ‘to repentance and a change of mind concerning their sin’? Hardly. She makes up what she wants to believe and say on a daily basis. I guess it seems that she really isn’t a follower of Christ…
