 @BradenMatthewLadner Slavery has always meant the same thing: one person owning another. Also I have studied ancient history, and slaves were often treated worse in those days. THe verse promotes a concept that you should respect your master, no matter what the master is doing. Also do you not remember the story of the Jews in Egypt, where slavery was so terrible? This is the slavery of the ancient world that the Bible is supporting. Get your head out of the sand and stop using the Bible to hate people. Mark my words, in 150 years we will look at the prejudices against gay people with the same horror most reasonable people look at the horrors of slavery. The question is what side will you be on.

 @LVA  @BradenMatthewLadner I don't even see how you can say the NT was twisted. The verse I posted above is clear support of slavery, and there are others. And give me an example of a twisted verse. Basically, it boils down to the fact that you are using relgion as a crutch to hate people you don't understand. I have many gay friends, and treat them just the same. They put their pants on one leg at a time as well. 

 

Also, stop cherrypicking bible verses to suit your own needs. According to the Bible we all sin, but are saved by the Grace of God. Most Christians accept that even murderers can be saved. Then how do you decide homosexuality is the one sin that is beyond redemption

 @BradenMatthewLadner Now you are in denial. The Bible clearly comes out in support of slavery. "Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear.  Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ" Ephesians 6:5. And this is one of the tamer versions. The bible clearly supports slavery and to deny that is to deny that the sky is blue and we are human. But Christians came to realize that was wrong and ignored the Bible's teaching on that in favor of tolerance; we must do the same thing with homosexuality.

 @BradenMatthewLadner Except for the fact that the Bible got the easiest moral question of all time, slavery, wrong. You can be a Christian and realize that you don't have to interpret everything literally.

While I agree that NFLN was better, the gap was not as much as shown. Irvin alone brings NFLN to a B at best, and with Deion and the pointless insiders at the front of the room, they are a B-. Sure, Berman was terrible for ESPN but Gruden was really good and Kiper was solid. Also, complete failure here to mention the fact that Eisen would not stop talking about Te'o with every pick. He and Kiper both kept bringing him up every five seconds. 

 

The problem I sometimes have with this site (which I really enjoy) is they seem to be looking to take shots at ESPN. Sometimes I think they do this just because they know it is a good business model: taking shots at ESPN generates traffic and revenue. However, some of the stuff they criticize ESPN for (blank text in Graphics, fields that weren't filled in) seem like petty message-board type stuff. I think Awful Announcing can't reach its true potential as a sports media criticism site until it stops just looking to point holes at ESPN (especially on twitter) for very minor mistakes
