Grey's Anatomy > Shonda Rhimes' Plans For Callie and Erica > Comments Page 2
Hello folks----all this religious talk, while interesting, makes no sense since Grey's Anatomy is about creatively entertaining its audience....and part of that audience is gay---so its time people dealt with it or at the very least were forced to tolerate it.
Reminds me a bit about gays in the military, prejudiced people can all pretend that they are not there, if that makes them feel better, but they are there--- risking their lives along side the straight people.
Homosexuality is a part of our world, (guess what, its a part of nature) and it is my hope that someday this will all seem as backwards as it was when African Americans hardly had a presence on television.

Indeed they did!!!! my mom and i actually watched an episode together when i first started watching it. it was really nice because she liked it and watches it with me sometimes. and when she cant i come out and give her an update during the commercials! its just a great bonding time for us but it still lets her monitor what im watching. its just really neat. and your very welcome anything i can do for a fellow Grey's lover!
Sarah-thanks for that for the advice about my daughter. and it was really interesting to read about how passionate people are about this show-they must have done something right!
merder, the word homosexuality wasnt even used in the bible...so it doesnt plainly state that "homosexuals will not enter the kingdom of God"
It actually says
"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind"
It says homosexuality in later translations done once the word came about.
I see your point, I just think that they deserve to go to heaven just as much as we do.
After all, what have they done to harm us? Certainly no crime has been committed were harm was caused. Because It dosent matter...not to me and thousands of others. It shouldnt matter to you. The bible teaches us to be like Christ. He loved everyone no matter what...remember that??
MerDer, you are entitled to your opinion and you are entitled to stop watching a show you enjoy.
But the bible is in fact a translation from an ancient language and there are many different ways Corinthians has been translated. (For instance, Corinthians 13 "Love is kind" etc. was translated as "charity is kind" up until the last 75 years or so.) But the passage you refer to has several different translations.
So if that lets you watch Grey's without feeling like you're reinforcing a sin, go for it! Just trying to help a fellow Grey's lover watch her show.
hi. WOW what alot of info!!i forgot i was reading the Grey's website!thought it was a Jerry Springer forum!lol.ok first things first...merder u r absolutely entitled to your opinion and i am also a christian.i am 16 years old and i try to live my life according to God's word and walk with Christ.of course no one is perfect.and yes the Bible teaches against homosexuality but it also says that you should love everyone.and to everyone jumping down merders throat she never said she hated homosexuals or that she is homophobic.she has every right to stand up for what she believes in!ok back to merder...the Bible says that we should turn the other cheek so if i were you i would just stop coming here and letting them slap the other one.if your through with Grey's then your through with Grey's.you have said what you wanted to say so lets not turn this into a web version of fight club or something.this is the Grey's Anatomy site people and you guys are having religious and homosexual debates!com
I never, EVER said the word "HATE" in either of my postings. GOD is love. But GOD does define what a relationship should consist of. Today, we live under the new law, the New Testament. In that New Testament, I Corinthians 6:9 plainly states that homosexuals shall not enter the Kingdom of GOD. I am not judging...I am reading my Bible. You can believe whatever you would like, but I am entitled to my beliefs and I am also entitled to stand up for them. The problem with this world today is that all exclusiveness is ruled out. Helen, I do not know if this answers your question, but my life IS defined by Jesus Christ and the WORD of GOD. My number one goal in this life is to get to Heaven. If I do not achieve that, then what was this life for anyways? I am not commenting because I hate anyone or hecaue I judge anyone, I comment to make a stand.
I am also a lesbian and damn proud of it! Go Shonda!! MerDer, Kiss my gay butt!!!
While I do not agree with MerDer's views, I do believe she has a right to her religious belief and opinion. I also believe if you do not like what you are watching then change the channel. I would like to believe that I am tolerant of all people, even those who are discriminate of others based on their sexuality, race, religion, etc. I have many gay friends and they are not defined by their sexuality. I AM NOT defined by my sexuality.
MerDer, are you solely defined by your religious beliefs?
I love the realtionship between Callie and Erica, and support Shonda's decision to have it in the show. My best friend is gay and through that i've seen how narrow-minded people can be and i really believe that any religion that hates any type of love between people, must have some parts of the puzzle missing. So go Shonda, i hope this storyline is done well and not gotten rid of.
hi, i have never watched greys anatomy, i know, i know, but my daughter has recently gotten into it, and because ive never watched it, i dont know if it is age appropriete. i was wondering if you all could help me out, she is a mature 13 year old, going into high school. thanks!
MerDer, I have grown up in the church all my life and yes they teach that homosexuality is wrong but........as I recall, premarital sex is wrong and adultery is wrong. From the beginning of Grey's Anatomy, both of these issues have always been there.
Think about it, Meredith and Derek's relationship is based off of both of these issues. Yet you had absolutely no problem watching it until Shonda decided to make Erica and Callie lesbians. Maybe you should re-read the bible.
Two of my best friends are gay and I love them for it. It takes a lot more courage to come out and say you're gay, then it does to protest homosexuality. When you judge people for being different, it just makes you look like a fool.
Have you ever thought how many people you may be friends with that are gay.....and you don't know about it because they are afraid you are going to judge them. Thou shalt not judge.
Shonda....rock on with Grey's Anatomy!!!!!!!
Hey MerDer..I can stand up for what I believe in. I am a lesbian and damn proud of it.
Yes! Way to go Shonda for making the show a reflection of Seattle, full of all kinds of people who get along (or not) based on personal interaction and not on race or sexual orientation. Extra props for getting GLAAD involved to make sure it's done right.
I think Callie and Erica are great together. I knew they would get together after I saw the first post-strike episode and I've been rooting for them ever since!
straight ally and proud member of GLAAD
Hey Megan..I think exactly the same as you.
I'd grew up at Baptist church and been in there for 24 years. I have never ever in my life read in the bible that we are suppose to hate any human been. but the sin.
My best friend Samuel grew up with me at the same church, we all knew he was gay, since he was like 6 years. Wow so now he is going born in the hell...maybe, maybe I'm going to, cuz I love him, I think he is great. And I'll never ever in my life stop been his friend. Or hate him. I don't think Jesus would do it too.
So spread the good word of Jesus not this whole hate-thing MerDer...you are a big sinner and Jesus loves you anyway.
And that all I've to say abt it.
Grey's Anatomy Roxx And I hope with all my heart that they do a great job with Callica story cuz its great so far!
Seriously, merder, quit it. We are standing up for what we believe in too. I am Baptist and strait but I have friends who are gay, and I dont care. I think its great what Shonda is doing. Maybe if you see how its still love no matter the gender, you will quit being such a close-minded moron. If you dont like it, quit talking about it.
You know, MerDer, I've read the bible and lesbians actually get a free pass. Never mentioned once.
Spilling seed, the story of Lot all have to do with men being together.
The bible says NOTHING about women loving women.
And besides do you really follow everything in the bible? You're not supposed to eat pig and men are supposed to all have beards, if we all followed the rules set down in the bible.
I like me some bacon. So I'm down with homosexuality too.
God bless Grey's Anatomy!
You all can call me names and ridicule me all you would like...I really do not care. There is a point where you have to draw the line on things. If you watch GA, they talk about "drawing the line" quite a bit. For those of you who say I am being judgemental, you should actually sit down and READ the Bible before you go spouting off at what you think it preaches. My goal in life is to be like Christ, and even He told people when they were living in a wrong lifestyle. I am simply standing up for what I believe in. There is nothing in this world that is wrong with that. Maybe one day, you all will be brave enough to do the same.
Do we have to go down the homophobic/religious route again?!
MerDer - we get it you're a homophobic idiot you going to stop watching the show because Shonda dare to keep it real. Gay men and women have just as much right to be portrayed on TV.
I'm looking forward to September 25th and I now after reading that ^^^ and Brooke's interview with AE I have faith in Shonda to do this storyline jusitce to keep it real and dirty .. :);)
First of all to MerDer: You are a narrowminded, ignorant little fool, and it's people like you that caused WW2 and alot of other conflicts. If you dont want to see the show because it has gay/lesbian content, turn of the tv, dont come here and whine, it will only cause you more pain than us. :)
And about the show: I think this is really exhiting, and well fitting for GA to have a lesbian couple. They have had an asian doctor, several afro american doctors, a gay couple and very on-the-edge storylines before, and I think it is awesome that they can take a stand like this. I think it will make a good differance and be applauded all over the world, well done Shonda!
I can't wait to september 25th! It's too far away >.
Good Riddance merder! If you don't want to watch any tv shows that go against the bible you mind as well throw your tv out the window.
Get over it, not everyone in this world has to be straight.
I can't wait to see where Callica is going and I am so happy that neither of them are going to be pregnant (anytime soon). I don't want to wish the summer away, but I can't wait until sept. 25th!
Thank you Anna!
I am in total agreement.
Adding to my last post, it could be careful word choice on Ms. Rhimes part, to mess with us. We don't really know whats going to happen, there is a lot of hype and anticipation. But seriously people the show is big, it is going to handle major topics, have an open mind people and get over yourselves.
It's about time, now there are no more speculations we actually know there will be Callica! Callie & Erica together at last. I think they make a really cute couple and I like the fact that both Calle & Erica act like themselves when around each other it shows how much they trust each other & obviously how much they care about one another :) I'm sure Shonda will do a great job with this storyline! I can't wait to see season 5!!!
