Political Correctness took over....to many people soil their diapers these days. Everything is sadly offensive...even the truth.

I always found that Ironic, many preach their freedom of speech until it goes against what they believe.

Yes and until it makes smoke come out of their ears because they don't want things said that goes against their grain. It's like evil trying to suppress the light from revealing what's hidden. So wrong.....

I agree with you. Often when I do that here i get accused of being rude. That's one of the great things about getting older. You realize there's not enough time for "walking around in egg shells" and what everyone else thinks about you becomes infinitely less important.

There is nothing wrong with giving the truth. Some people just can't handle it and instead only want people to tell them what they want to hear.

Those are the best kind of answers, but they might "offfffeeennndd" somebody who is overly sensitive and a whinyazz crybaby. Problems can't be solved if nobody is allowed to talk about it. But do remember that you're a guest here on Ask, it's a privilege, not a right to be here.

Nothing is wrong with it as long as the your are not doing so just to ruffle feathers. You should be honest, just as long as you are not rude and degrading about it.

Yes I agree but what happens when people with the power dictate what's allowed and what's not? And allow for double standards and their personal feelings get in the way?

You can give a controversial answer, just be honest and not confrontational in your delivery. Being defensive is usually the reason people get offended by an honest answer.

Example:
Christian: "Why don't you believe in God?"
Atheist (OK answer): "Because there's no proof, no scientific proof."
or
Atheist (bad answer): "Because there's no proof, Christianity is just a cult and no one can prove God is real."

In contrast:
Atheist: "Why do you believe in God?"
Christian (OK answer): "Because I have faith, and Jesus died for our sins."
or
Christian (bad answer): "Because I have faith, and the Bible says everyone else is going to Hell for their sins."

Just curious ...How should a christian answer the more contraversial questions presented to them while staying true to their faith? Example... "Christians does the bible say homosexuality is a sin?"
Thanks, and I agree with you...we should all be courteous in our discussions...star.
Report as
Here's the response I always give:

The Bible tells us that homosexuality is a sin. There's a whole lot of other sins in there, too.
The Bible does not tell us that it is a sin any greater than any other sin. Sure, some people got killed in the story, but people got killed for other sins, too... it doesn't say that homosexuality is a great, unforgivable sin.

In general, my response to any controversial question includes this:
The Bible tells us that Jesus died for our sins - not just current Christians, but anyone who will accept Him as their savior. When that happened, it was of huge importance because, instead of just the faithful Jews getting saved, now even Gentiles and the "low-lifes" were guaranteed access.
The Bible also says that we should spread His word through love, good acts, and kind teachings. It does not say that it is our responsibility as Christians to point out everyone elses' flaws. You don't have to approve of the person's sins, to accept and love the person anyways.

Corinthians 1 Chapter 13 is a great chapter to live by. Its "The Love Chapter" for a reason.

You should give an answer straight from your heart or mind. If it ruffles feathers, that is not bad. BUT if you design your answer/question with the sole purpose of being controversial, that isn't a real true answer/question.

Freedom of speech is a great thing, but there is a time and a place for such things, There was this group a few years ago that held peace rally at soldiers funerals and when they were asked to leave claimed their right to freedom of speech, there is a time and a place for such things and that was neither. Truly evil things get hidden with freedom of speech, just because you can say something doesnt always mean you should and knowing the difference is important people have lost their hearts over the last few decades and say and do cruel things to each in the name of freedom and rights. I would like to add the other answers on to mine as well. I think as long as you arent doing it out of hate or just to ruffle feathers or just to be cruel it fine.
