    Legend: Key principles // Storyline

    “The whole like charges repel, unlike charges attract reminds me of homosexuality,” Kim remarked, “Why do Christians see homosexuality as wrong?”

    “As with any Sin,” Mandy remarked, “there are multiple reasons. But prima facie, we can simply say the Bible says so in Romans 1:24-29 and 1 Corinthians 6:9-10. Although enlisted alongside greed and covetousness, the question is not necessarily whether you engage in that conduct, but whether you care if it’s wrong, care what God says, and make no reasonable attempt not to do that thing [and discourage others].”

    “To explore it deeper,” Kim asked, “Why is it wrong?”

    “Two reasons: (1) In the beginning, God made man and woman to become one flesh, so that’s God’s way of doing sexuality, so trying to do sexuality another way is a distortion,” Mandy replied, “Also, (2) in Romans 1, Paul explores homosexuality as the exchanging of the glory of God, for, perhaps what is your most cherished idol, which is yourself. So in fact, homosexuality is self-idolization. This is congruous with Romans 1:24-29, which re-emphasizes the word “exchange”.

    “Marriage should be between a man and a woman,” Em said.

    “That comment was made by Miss California USA Carrie Prejean, and had Perez Hilton call her the infamous misogynistic slur ‘dumb b****’ as a result, and as Hilton himself admitted on ABC news after, caused her to lose the nationals,” Mandy replied, “And eventually de-crowned.”

    This touched Mandy, you see, because she was quite opinionative, and if put in Prejean’s shoes, would have responded in the same way. She could feel Prejean’s pain. But on her mind, was if asked, would she slip to thinking what other's thought, or only what God thought.

    “Whilst supporting a cause to prevent anti-gay bullying, Khloe Kardashian noted Hilton was a hypocrite, as her ‘personal bully’,” Blaire commented, “causing Hilton to rethink his methods, and eventually release a video noting ‘I am a hypocrite, and I am one of the biggest bullies out there… In the past, I would justify everything as comedy and humor… I need to change, and I'm going to, starting today.”

    “But by the grace of God, go I,” Mandy commented.
