Recently I tried to have a discussion with two people that didn’t agree with me on the Biblical View of Sexuality (I probably shouldn’t have done it in the first place, since they wouldn’t have wanted listen anyway). I told them that my view was that I didn’t agree with same sex couples having sex. One of them got really upset, and slammed the door shut right in front of me, because he thought I was “bashing” gay people.
I came to apologise for what I said (even though it was just a disagreement) and he told me that he didn’t care if he was kicked out of the Kibbutz if it meant he was going to hit me in the face. He then told me that if I was going to disagree with him, it would have to be away from him.
Did I just compromise my beliefs? Should I have taken the punch instead?
I think these guys were bluffing, but then again I can’t take that for certain. Even then, the Kibbutz manager wouldn’t want to deal with what was happening if I was threatened.
