Ending the church's bigotry against cannibals
In this blog post, Steve Hays copies-and-pastes a typical call for the church to abandon the Bible's teaching on human sexuality: http://triablogue.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/christian-cannibals.html. As ever, the call is in the name of "love". And as ever, that "love" is not defined in terms of God's law (which is how the Bible explains boundaries of love, e.g. John 14:15, Romans 13:9). Hays, without comment, points out that by redefining "love" to mean whatever the sin-du-jour is, we can literally endorse any sin we please and call on the church to repent of its lack of "love" for not doing so before (whilst praising ourselves for being so wonderfully loving).
