Kirk Franklin: Bible is not homophobic!
“It is horrible that we have made it where the Bible is a homophobic manual,” Franklin said. “That’s not what the Bible is. I mean you want to talk about things that God gets at… pride and jealousy and envy and arrogance. But what we also see is God sending his son to save us all, because we were all… straight, gay or whatever, lost and in need of a [savior], and there’s room at the cross for all of us.” I agree with him!

Religious books banned from schools
“The distribution of Bibles in six schools in Tennessee has been banned after a complaint has been filed. Jennifer Terry, superintendent of the Bledsoe County Schools in Pikeville, believes that distributing the Holy Scripture violates the U.S. Constitution.

Biblical reflection from Africa

You may ask why? Well, the answer is simple. In our life’s manual, we are told about how we came into being. The Bible tells us in Genesis 2:7 that we were formed from dust: this is our physical part (our body/flesh). The passage went on to say for man to become a living souls, God blew into his nostrils the breathed life.” Edna Small give us this wonderful biblical reflection on our real needs. This is a simple and clear reading of the Bible and we should learn to read Bible in the same way (Read the article here)
