Motes and Beams

Even if you believe homosexuality, abortion, birth control, etc., to be sins, then the correct Christian response is to avoid doing them. It is not to work to pass laws to force sinners not to sin. It would be like asking the scorpion not to sting you as you carried him across the river.  Nor is it to stand around on a street corner saying "Thank God I never had an abortion like that poor rape victim over there who is saying, ' God be merciful to me a sinner'" Pointing out the mote in her eye while praying no one notices the beam in yours. (Luke 18:10-14, Luke 6:41-42)
