Do you have a worldview?

This is a great piece of information, source listed below:


"Everyone has a worldview upon which they base their lives
The big questions of how to extract reliable information about the world, and how to separate fact from mere opinion are clearly complex.  Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean that we can simply ignore them or remain agnostic about them. These questions are critical to the construction of our worldview, that is, the set of values and assumptions upon which we base our lives. Our worldview may be carefully thought out, or it may consist of a hodgepodge of unexamined ideas that we have picked up from family, friends, school, or the media. However it emerges, every person has a worldview, and it plays a critical role in how we live our lives.

As a Christian, the Bible is key foundation upon which I build my worldview. Therefore, it matters greatly to me whether or not this text is a reliable source of knowledge. This is a fascinating topic that I don’t have space to address here. But, I believe that there are strong rational grounds to believe that the Bible is indeed reliable [20]."

Remind me how many people still confuse civil rights issues and homosexual activism.

The second half of this article does a good job explaining why being gay is different than being black:

Also, people seem to compare not serving a black person at a restaurant to facilities that do not want to perform gay weddings. I don't think this is an accurate comparison. Most christian restaurants do not have a problem serving food to homosexuals, but endorsing their lifestyle or participating in a ceremony is different. 



Being gay has to me an immutable attribute for most of the arguments used by homosexual activism to standup and that argument has only been made poorly up to this point.
