NBA youngsters receive billion wages

Saturday 21 July 2018

Devin Booker (21) and Nikola Jokic (23) are two players very few have heard of. Nevertheless, along with a number of other young players, they have received a massive pay rise this summer.

Because even though it’s LeBron James who has signed the biggest contract this summer ($ 153.3 million, or $ 1.23 billion over four years), there are several youngsters who really have salt in the porridge, and so forth .

21-year-old Devin Booker was drafted as 13th of the Phoenix Suns in the 2015 draft, and the average 24.9 points per match match in the 2017/18 season for a weak Suns team. The score was the tenth best in the league.

In the first four seasons (the first three plus the one now), he has “just” earned 10 million dollars in total, or around 80 million dollars.

Then Phoenix Suns offered him a five-year deal worth $ 158 million (or $ 1.2 billion) starting next summer.

The same goes for the 95 models Zach LaVine, Aaron Gordon and Nikola Jokic. LaVine smoked the ribbon in his left knee in February 2017, and was out for eleven months. Jokic was chosen as number 41 in the second round of the draft in 2014, and has the average of 18.9 points per game, while Gordon has not managed to reach his potential after four years in the league (the average of 17.6 points per game this season).

This is how the NBA system works

Nevertheless, these three got well paid this summer: LaVine and Gordon have signed four new contracts with respectively. Chicago Bulls and Orlando Magic with a value of nearly $ 650 million each while Jokic accepted a Denver Nuggets offer of $ 1.2 billion over five years.

*Eleven players will earn $ 30 million or more in the coming season. Just twice before this season, a player has earned $ 30 million or more in a season: Michael Jordan in 1997/98 and Kobe Bryant in 2013/14.

My comment on this is:

No person is worth such sums in sports. They do nothing that contributes in society to a better everyday life. I get a sum a year from the state as they earn in a few hours. This is a deeply unfair part of society as it becomes more of this in the future. Fresh and above average physics will be a new nobility. We who have bad health due to factors we can not forsee are the losers and are then punished by society. We are heading towards an elite community where you must succeed most of the time.

Gays: We are not to be ashamed of us

Friday, July 20, 2018

Hate crime against gays, lesbians and transpersonals must and must be taken seriously. We still have a way to go.

You’re holding hands with your boyfriend. You are called discusting and hear that you should be shot. You kiss a date good night. You must run from men who eventually hit you on the open street and you bleed. You tell the outside world that you’ve found someone you love. You get draped and have to go with violence.

All three events have taken place in Oslo during the year. We are very tired that the hatred of love is still so strong in many. We have all experienced the wonderful feeling that love is. Then you will not experience hate and insecurity for yourself and the one you love.

Last year, the police received 83 reviews of hatred crime against LHBT people. In addition, we know from the survey that only one in three reports. Often the perpetrator is unknown.

From the reported hat crime in Oslo 2017 it can be read that half of all who are exposed to hatred are less than 30 years old. Most homosexual men report hate crime, but they also report hatred crime from lesbians and transgender people.

There is an increase in hate crime reports from 41 cases in 2016 to 46 cases last year in Oslo. Nevertheless, this reason does not suffice to say that we are moving in the wrong direction. It is positive if fewer people refuse to report than before and the police are becoming increasingly adept at detecting and following up hate crime.

The government’s action plan for the LHBTI field, “Security, Diversity, Transparency”, proposes to create a common supervisor for the detection of hatred crime, common definitions for hatred crime throughout the country and having a greater professional environment in the field just in order to combat hate crime. It is an absolutely necessary work to ensure follow-up across the country, not only in Oslo where you have your own hate crime group.

An important and correct signal was sent in spring, when a unanimous parliament incorporated trans-people into the hatred definition. The hatred flourishes on the web as well, but unlike many other men who hate they are not just cellar rebels. Our haters have no trouble telling us straight forward as we walk the street.

Some of us not going hand in hand late at night. Some avoid parts of Oslo. We both have experienced it ourselves. Not because we are ashamed, but because the statistics say there may be a risk to take. That’s how we have it in Oslo.

Every Pride then you read debates around glitter and glamor, but to be allowed to be self and to love what you want, that is what Pride is about. That’s why 40,000 walked in Oslo’s streets a little while ago. That’s why 250,000 looked. They celebrated the love the way it is and the diversity Oslo is known for.

We still have the way that the acknowledgment we see during Pride will be everyday, throughout the country. Therefore, openness and visibility are important beyond Pride, and so attitude and information work is important in all layers of society – no one is ashamed of who they are.

My comment on this is:

Homosexuals shall not be discriminated or bullied. But gay is a sin according to the Bible, but it is up to God to punish them. They should not have special rights just because they are gay. The church should not marry them and the City Hall should not too.

Was 25 years before he dared to swim in the Oslo Fjord

Friday, July 20, 2018

The fear is due to one and only one movie, “Jaws”, which is candidate number two in the list of the darkest horror films of all time.

It’s a warm summer night. You throw yourself in the fresh waters and swim out of the shore. Suddenly something bites you hard in your leg and draws you under water. You’re crying out of pain and shock. Helplessly, you are thrown around like a cat-lingering cloak in the mouth of a rottweiler. You’re giggling feverishly for air. The water around you is filled with blood. It will not leave you. You swim to a bow and cling onto it. But to no use. You are pulled back with even greater power. Ribs are broken, the legs wear off close. You know this is the end. And you are dragged underwater for the last time.

This is how “Jaws” starts. The brutal monster is introduced. The fear is set. The panic is on standby. Let the fun begin.

Shark fear in the summer

He was close to 25 years before he dared to swim in the Oslo fjord. And this fear is caused by one and only a movie, namely “Jaws”. Steven Spielberg’s masterpiece from 1975. A pop-cultural phenomenon and reference point in the horror and thriller changer.

A very aggressive and hungry shark terrorizes the waters around a small and drowsy American beach town. The authorities, motivated by the money the tourists leave, decide first to dodge it all down. Then they claim to have killed the guilty shark. Before they realize that it’s just a solution; a good old-fashioned shark hunt.

The local sheriff, together with a marine biologist and a drunk shark hunter, takes up the fight against this huge beast. For this shark is not a small one.

The shark does not get good of this. It appears to be vengeful, enchanted and human. It makes Moby Dick appear as a mild and forgivable little pet.

What you see is not the scary thing

Animals are often used in movies to scare our lives. It may be extra scary as these animals actually exist. Unlike a vampire or zombie. And we can probably assume that there are minorities of zoologists who have written these movie scripts.

The animals are stigmatized and demonized one by one. But no other animal as much as the shark. And never with more conviction than in “Jaws”.

The film is based on Peter Benchley’s 1974 novel with the same name. He later stated that if he had actually had any knowledge of the shark he would never have written such a book. Well, a little late to come with, after giving the reputation of the shark a near irreparable scratch in the paint.

The film became a giga success, and the first movie to earn over $ 100 million at American cinemas. It is interesting to note that we do not actually see the shark until after about 80 minutes. And here is also some of the recipe for the film’s success. Keeping the predator hidden pours our imagination and increases the excitement. That’s hidden, which really scares. And one thing is for sure; It does not get much more exciting and scary than this.

Classical movie music

The film music is a chapter for itself. You almost get chills on your back just by humming that dun … That’s dun … That’s dun …

We rise from the cold, deep and dark waters, and shine the little human body where it swims alone with the sky alone as a background. We are slowly approaching. That’s thin … Dah thin … That’s thin … The little legs move keenly in the water. We move faster. We are almost ahead. That’s dun … That’s thin … That’s thin … Snap!

And the film, or more precisely composer John Williams, also received Oscar for best song. Highly deserved.

Funny that Spielberg obviously reacted with laughter the first time he heard the title track. He thought it was a joke and asked Williams what song he had actually taken for the film. Another proof that you should often rely on professionals.

– You will need a bigger boat

Many have argued that the movie was not about a shark, but it’s a metaphor for something else, be it infidelity, masculinity, Watergate or Marxism. Spielberg has, however, been asked about this and then answered; «No. It’s a movie about a shark ». Fair enough.

The film has an exceptional nerve and intensity. Great photo, creative camera shooting and smart clips give the movie both visual enjoyment and tremendous excitement.

Spielberg is a masterful storyteller and atmosphere. He has full control over his universe and gives us, thanks to a rocky manuscript, a series of extremely strong and near iconic scenes and replicas. Performed by characters we actually care about.

The opening scene alone, the poor girl who takes an innocent night bath, unaware of what awaits in the depths, gives more unhappiness and fear than most modern horror films manage to evolve throughout their playing time.

And the monologue of Robert Shaw, who plays shark hunter Quint, about the wreck of the warship Indianapolis, who had just delivered the Hiroshima bomb, and how nearly everyone was attacked and killed by hungry sharks. So wonderfully presented that it gives us goose bumps.

Wait for the bathing season to end

Even over 40 years later, it still scares the waters of the audience. We are stupid by admiration of how terrifyingly effective this film was (and still is), while being a bit pissed on it deprived us of so many good bathing years.

The original got three followers, and has inspired an armada of films like casher into our fear of what moves around the big dark sea. But none of these reaches “Jaws” to the ankles.

A classic and undisputed masterpiece. But wait to see it until the bathing season is over. That’s dun … That’s thin … that’s thin …

My comment on this is:

I was frightened for several years, could not bathe for three years. I was 16 years old, in fifth row in the big screen cinema. The shark was huge and frightening. Had nightmares for several years about the shark that ate me.

Israel adopts controversial law on Jewish nation state

Thursday 19 July 2018

A new law defines clearer than before that Israel is a nation of the Jewish people. The law has several controversial formulations provoking the Arab minority in the country.

It will have been hard for eight hours in the Israeli parliament, Knesset on Wednesday night, writes BBC and Reuters.

“Democracy is dead”

After the poll, furious Arab politicians must have shouted and torn pieces of documents.

– I announce with shock and disappointment that democracy is dead.

That said the Arab parliamentarian Ahmed Tibi after the vote.

62 parliamentarians voted for the new law, 55 voted against and two abstained.

The law states that Hebrew is the country’s national language.

Previously, Arabic had the same status as Hebrew. Arabic now gets lower status.

“A National State of the Jewish People”

The new law defines Israel as “a nation of the Jewish people” and includes controversial formulations.

According to Reuters, the law states that only Jews have national self-sufficiency in Israel.

“Israel is the historic homeland of the Jewish people and they have an exclusive right to national self-determination in the country,” the BBC said.
«Important for future generations»

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu celebrates the decision in Knesset and says it is important for many generations in the future.

“A clear majority wants to ensure that our country has a Jewish character for generations ahead of time,” Netanyahu said.

“We want to ensure democratic rights for all citizens. But the majority also have rights and the majority decide, Netanyahu said.

Dropped the most controversial

Several of the most controversial proposals in the new law were halted.

In the original proposal, there was, among other things, a clause to establish areas in which only Jews can live.

The proposal was dropped when both the President and the Attorney General responded, Reuters writes.

Some Arab parliamentarians believe that these most controversial proposals have been removed, the new law is racially motivated.

– Second class citizens

The Arab minority in Israel accounts for about 20 percent of the population of nine million.

Arabs living within the borders of Israel are descendants of the population who lived in the area when Israel received its national state in 1948.

The Arab population believes that they have been seen and treated as second-class citizens throughout the years.

According to the law, the Arabs have the same rights as Jews, m, one in practical life experiences many Arabs discrimination, writes Reuters.

Furious in Arab city

The news agency Reuters has talked with residents in the Arab-dominated city of Tarsiha north of Israel. There are many anguish after what happened in Knesset on Wednesday night.

“I think this is a racist law from a right government who wants to plant some seeds to create an apartheid state,” says 71-year-old Bassam Bisharah.

The news agency finds similar opinions in the village yanuh where there are many drusers.

– The motive for the new law is discrimination. They want to get rid of us Arabs, “says Yousef Faraj.

Plus articles in the papers you have to pay for increases in scope

Wednesday, July 18, 2016

I see that the plus articles are on the increase. You must subscribe to this monthly. It’s not all including me who can not afford to pay all the newspaper’s plus subscription. It costs too much a year.

News and articles about historical events must be free. Newspapers have no right to give this back payment wall. The big newspapers VG, Dagbladet and now Nettavisen after the acquisition, all paywall who choose articles where there is a public interest.

I think it’s illegal to remove such content from the public.

130 Netflix billion went lost after the result boom

Wednesday, July 18, 2018

The streaming giant is heavily punished on the stock exchange after the quarterly figures showed more than one million fewer users than expected: the stock fell ten percent, but recovered again.

Compared to the closing price on Monday, $ 16 billion in stock market was shaved off immediately after opening, equivalent to NOK 130 billion.

The stock price was $ 400.48 when Wall Street closed last night Norwegian time. At half past seven, the stock will recover and fall “only” by 5.68 per cent to $ 377.19 today.

Leave disappointing numbers

Netflix released the results Monday night, then broke its own expectations for new subscribers for the first time in five quarters.

The boom was also not insignificant: FactSet had expected 6.34 new subscribers, while it became 5.15 million subscribers.

According to Reuters, the company has overestimated the growth estimates, but says they are sure of a good long-term growth.

The quarterly report also showed a profit per share of 85 cents and a turnover of $ 3.91 billion. A revenue of $ 3.94 billion was expected in advance.

Plunges on the stock exchange

Since Wall Street opened half past four Norwegian time, the stock price fell by almost 5.68 percent. At the most, it was down 13 percent.

The German big bank Deutsche Bank downgraded Netflix from “buy” to “team” today, but says the long-term picture for the company has not changed.

“Lower subscription growth is not so central, but requires an evaluation of value and price of the stock,” the bank writes in an analysis note, reproduced by CNBC news channel.

Analysts from KeyBac Capital Markets also report, according to the MarketWatch economic site, that their long-term prospects are unchanged after publication of subscriber numbers.

– We continue to recommend to own Netflix, writes analysts.

The actual market value is $ 158 billion, down from $ 174 billion yesterday.

Investment companies Blackrock and Vanguard are among the company’s largest shareholders, who now have to see the price fall. The oil fund holds 0.77 percent of the shares in Netflix.

However, the share has increased by 268.94 per cent over the last two years.

Betting heavily on original content

Netflix focuses on original content in several languages, as well as ensuring a solid foothold internationally.

– Videos on the internet are growing globally, and we’re lucky enough to be one of the leaders in the industry, Netflix writes in its quarterly report.

“We think it is a big appetite for consumers for a wide content, and that there is room for more players to have good market shares. Our strategy is to only improve us, something we have done every single year.

Content Manager Ted Sarandos said, according to the newspaper Dagens Næringsliv, that Netflix will use more of its budget billionaires on Norwegian streaming viewers.

“There will be heavier investments from us in Norway. It’s a very important market for us and one of the first markets we established. I think we just have not found the right idea to work on, “said Sarandos.

According to the newspaper The Street, the company’s top manager, Reed Hastings, sees tough competition in the streaming market.

“There is a lot of new competition associated with Disney coming into the market, HBO gets external funding and that several different French media now go together.

“Everything is normal and expected,” said the chief executive.

My comment about it is:

In just a few years Netflix has established itself as a major power company. They now have their own content now as movies and series. The problem is it costs a lot of money a year to be included. I can not afford all popular services so I miss this. Fortunately, the content of pages I can download is coming.

But 1668.- NOK per Year on Premium is too much Even the next election is at 1300.- NOK per. year. Then comes the TV license as well. Therefore, I think that such a player should have been lower priced, much lower on premium content,

IS rises from the ashes and spreads new terror

Tuesday 17 July 2018

As a bird fynix, the so-called Islamic state is on its way back both in Syria and Iraq. It shows that it is not only useful to use bombs, rockets and grenades, writes Jan-Erik Smilden.

-IS is fought, we heard from Iraqi, Syrian, Russian and Western leaders a few months ago. Now the tone has become another. Earlier this month, Britain’s Defense Minister Gavin Williamson warned that the terrorist group had not been knocked out and that the British would have to continue to wager for a long time in the area unless the IS progress was stopped.

During the last three years, IS has gradually been thrown out of virtually all areas they controlled, but the group still has a presence in the desert in Syria, in border areas between Iraq and Syria and in some other “pockets” in the two countries.

There will be between three thousand and ten thousand IS soldiers left in Syria and Iraq. It is only a tenth of the “Islamic state” power available five to six years ago. But IS can still bite away, not least because many of their warriors got away with both vehicles and weapons and because they still get new weapon supplies. Even though the cash flow from donors in rich Arabian oil has decreased, it has not dried up.

IS was thrown out of Raqqa, the “capital” of the so-called Islamic caliphate last autumn. Now IS warriors are again operating near the city. They have captured and killed soldiers from rival militias and they have killed Russian soldiers. According to the British newspaper The Independent, they have also established new bases in this area.

Both in Syria and in Iraq, the IS warriors use the same methods as they did before they began to conquer large territories in 2014; attacks and other attacks against civil and public institutions, military, police officers, government officials and politicians. There are killing and kidnappings. One main goal is destabilization.

A few days ago Syrian government forces attacked a Syrian IS Allied group who lives in the border with Jordan in the direction of the Israel-occupied Golan Heights. In return, IS attacked a city fourteen kilometers from the Israeli border, where more moderate rebels had just surrendered.

In Kirkuk, northern Iraq, the IS activity has increased lately. On June 27, a group of five Islamists attacked several villages in the southern part of the province. On the same day, five Iraqis who worked for the security forces were executed on the main road between Kirkuk and Baghdad.

In the Kirkuk area, the IS Warriors even put false checkpoints and barricades on the roads to attack people. It was a method used during the civil war in Iraq in 2006 and 2007.

In several places in the countryside, the IS warriors will operate quite open, even during the daytime.

A police officer recently told a journalist from the Al-Monitor website that IS now regroups in Southern Kirkuk and that your warriors have drawn up plans on what targets they are going to hit.

It is uncertain how many IS warriors in this area are. It is known that some people fled there after the city of Mosul fell a year ago and that, until the turn of the year, they kept a relatively low profile.

One of the biggest problems in Syria and in Iraq is that IS warriors now have cut off their beard and act in civilian clothes and run civilian cars. It is also easy to operate in some of the areas they previously controlled because they still have support from civilians there.

Political instability, lack of government’s willingness to rebuild, shifting armed alliances and betrayal are among the reasons that IS has now recovered.

But it is not only in Iraq and Syria that IS now increases its business. Many IS warriors have fled to areas with major military and religious challenges, such as Afghanistan, Yemen, North Africa and West Africa.

How should such IS be combated?

It’s no use to break such an organization just with weapons. Both Iraqis and Syrians need a hope for a better future. With rebuilding, job creation and infrastructure development, much of the foundations for support for extreme Islamist groups like IS would weaken. Today, almost nothing happens on that front. Take, for example, Mosul: 380,000 people are still displaced, and the city is still in ruins – one year after IS was thrown out.

Currently, both Syrians, Iraqis and the outside world are most keen to fight each other. It costs billions of dollars each month. When it comes to civilian reconstruction, it is often only with promises.

That’s how it will not be peace.

Some truths about Islam

Sunday 15 july 2018

Islam is the ideology of evil. Being a slave of the moon god and submitting to his regulation is Satan’s bright side. He was the light angel in heaven before he was thrown out. Today, he blends many with his false light.

Islam is an instrument for bringing the world into a darkness that no one has ever seen before. I fight Islam with prayer and Muslims are saved in many Muslim countries. Christians throughout the world pray for salvation for Muslims.

The battle between Sunni and Shia is proof of Satan’s wrath against those who interpret Islam wrong. Other Muslims such as Ahmadiyya are banned by Shia and Sunni. So Islam is a hedonistic belief with many ideological principles that will make it impossible to lead Islam to world domination.

The same day as Trump asked for Hillary Clinton’s emails, the hacking started

Sunday, July 15, 2018

At a news conference in July 2016, then presidential candidate Donald Trump urged Russia to hack counter-candidate Hillary Clinton’s e-mail account and publish it.

In the speech he said: “Russia, if you listen, I hope you find the 30,000 e-mails that have disappeared.”

The statement refers to the e-mails that Hillary Clinton had deleted from her private account, from the time when she was Secretary of State under Barack Obama.

On the same day, the Russians made their first attempt to hack into Clinton’s office’s servers, according to a 29-page protest, twelve Russians accused of hacking during the election campaign. The detention was taken on Friday.

Trump has said all the time that there is no conspiracy between his election campaign and the Russians who have interfered with the election.

Deputy Minister of Justice, Rod Rosenstein, admits that Americans communicated with the defendants on the Internet, but without knowing that they were talking to Russian intelligence agents.

Twelve Russians charged

Specialist researcher Robert Mueller examines Russia’s alleged involvement in the US elections in 2016. The interference occurred in the form of extensive data attacks against the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Clinton’s election campaign. A number of stolen e-mails and documents were subsequently published online.

It is not apparent in the statement whether the twelve Russians’ actions in July were related to what Trump had said at the news conference that day.

There was also no world’s thing about the president’s request for help from Russia.

Mueller investigators would like to ask Trump about what he knew about the hacking that was going on. The president has refused to explain the matter for several months.

Talking about Obama

It is further revealed that an unidentified US Congressional candidate received stolen documents related to his or her political opponent from the Russian operators in August 2016. The hackers also transferred large amounts of data to a state-registered lobbyist and a reporter, according to the sentencing.

Trump commented on the issue of the twelve Russians on Twitter Saturday. He writes that the incident occurred during the Obama administration. Furthermore, he questioned why they did not do anything about it at the time, especially when Obama was already informed by the FBI in September before the election.

Meeting with Putin

The inditement was announced at the same time as presidential Trump and Queen Elizabeth of the United Kingdom were together at Windsor Castle outside of London. This also happens three days before the president is scheduled to meet Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.

Trump said Friday that he would ask Putin about Russian interference in the election, something he has done on previous occasions. But Trump said he did not expect Putin to give him another answer this time when they meet Monday.

Republican senator John McCain has stated that he is not excited about Trump’s meeting with Putin.

“If President Trump is not willing to hold Putin in charge, the Helsinki Summit should not be held,” said McCain.

Gay love is a sin

Tuesday, July 10, 2018

The church must make a settlement with gay hatred in Christian communities
Faith can move mountains, but who moves the faith?

If the church believes serious about being a church for all, it must make a settlement against the gay hatred that characterizes many Christian communities. It does not help her hands and lean back on her own marriage decision.

Fortunately, the Church has come up with better thoughts than preaching death and eternal spoilage over people who love some of the same sex. Unfortunately, there are plenty of dark powers that behind closed prayer doors condemn gay practice, paralyzed marriage and believe that the family is reserved for heterosexual couples. In order to fight this, we have to take the debate on Christianity’s own premises. The church must make a settlement with the homophathy in many Christian communities.

We have all read from them: Good adults, Christian, white men, happy to live in a charming little village along the coast in southwestern Norway or in northern Norway. They share in common that they are strongly engaged in or lead a reactionary Christian environment. In the newspaper slots and the church magazines they call out the wrath of God and a good dose of oldest condemnation of people who will “destroy the foundation of society: the family.”

In the comments fields are the pitiful provocators, but in their environments they are the king on the hill. Both places push the Bible and the word of God in front of them.

Their starting point is always the same: We can read in your book of Moses and Paul’s words about all possible suffering and misery that will hit those who dare to defy the Bible’s prohibition of homosexual intercourse. By virtue of the Bible, they spread their message, but they rarely encounter theological contamination. It’s no use so all world celebrities, politicians, commentators and bloggers had taken a total distance from the statements. Doomsday preachers and celebrities speak neither in the same language nor to the same audience.

I’ve seen the consequences. Young and old who are driven to the edge of the dungeon to grasp Christianity and “one true faith.” Women and men who live a life of eternal denial or a double life next to spouse and children. For some of them the pressure is too big. Some end their relationship with the church, while others end life. Where are the moral philosophers of the Christian Movement then? Where are those who speak of charity, mercy and mercy? Where are the critical voices that ask “We went too far”?

For too many years, the church has despised and denied the overthrows of gay and sexual minorities as a global Christian world order has been committed for centuries. Things are on the way, but the majority of the world’s churches have not seen the light. Not everyone here on earth.

Why does not the church and the Christian people make a final settlement with this kind of theological thinking? Where are the church’s employees, bishops and priests? Where are the Christian editors in our country and the day, or are the birds of prey? All we hear is the deafening silence.

On a case-by-case basis, discrimination against gay and sexual minorities remains unprecedented. The examples are many: In the Salvation Army, gays are excluded from participating in church work and faith. Normally, employees risk losing their jobs because of their partner, while the MorFarBarn organization is leading the attack on gay parents and homosexual marriage together with 36 other organizations and churches.

Faith can move mountains, but who moves the faith? The Bible and the understanding of it have always been interpreted into the time we live in. Also in the church there are voices that make a blow for a more human view of skeptic love. It’s all reason to shout. Yet they are so little and apparently they have to fight the fight in their own rows.

With its silence, the church and the Christian people communicate an attitude to attitudes and theological thinking that has a hateful and, at best, discriminatory character. One can quickly get the impression that Kristen Norway believes that God’s love and mercy are just as great that it fits into the bedroom to discriminate against you and the partner you have chosen. If that is not the case, they should make a settlement with the homohate on Christianity’s own premises.

My comment about it is:

Everyone must understand that homosexuality is a sin in the Bible. It is not for discussion sometime. The Norwegian Church has become political and no longer follows the Bible. I’ve signed off a long time ago. Many free churches in Norway follow the Bible better and have taken a stand on this question. I feel that time has come to choose side, and I choose the Bible in this. Homosexuality is a sin and will always be. But everyone has forgotten that God hates sin but loves the sinner. Therefore, we are equal to God. But practicing gay is to fall off that priviledge.
