RTÉ payout recipients inconsistent in beliefs

The controversy surrounding RTÉ’s recent payouts following an interview on the ‘Saturday Night Live’ show exposed the ‘consistent inconsistency’ of people regarding their religious beliefs.

Christianity (both in its official doctrine and its religious texts) has always been unambiguous in its negative attitude towards homosexuality.

Christians shouldn’t be afraid to stand by these teachings and defend them when they are challenged — otherwise, they have no business calling themselves Christians.

What we have seen, instead, is an example of cafeteria Christianity at its a la carte worst: without having to say or do anything, a group of individuals receives a bank balance bonus at the license payers’ expense, and their ‘consistently inconsistent’ belief system remains unchallenged and intact.
