    What "scripture"?
    “Now it is not good for the Christian’s health to hustle the Aryan brown,
    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    I'll just say I don't think that's fair. My brother is a very religious person and also gay. The two aren't incompatible, at least not in his view or the view of the church he attends. You will disagree, and that's fine and why there are so many different religions and denominations and even practices within each denomination. All of them are in my view doing their best to interpret God's will and fundamentally good people trying to do the right thing have throughout all of human history had deep disagreements on what that is. I'm not prepared to say that there is any one of them that has it correct.

    For the record I wasn't trying to make this personal, but just to point out that there are fine people with noble intentions who deeply disagree on nearly aspect of the broad subject of "religion" and I'm certain that there are deeply religious people who have studied the Bible for decades who 'know' their own interpretation is correct and yours is the one that is contrary to the scripture.

    Hardly surprising if you knew Episcopalians.

    Doesn't matter what your answer is, or what you believe, there are billions of good people living as they see God's will and strongly disagree with whatever your belief system is. They are as sure you're wrong, perhaps doomed, as you are certain it's they who are wrong. That's all I need to "prove."

    This is not surprise since they allowed gay priests years ago.

    The final word will be that of God. Most of us who believe agree to that.

    Yes, and please tell us how someone "interprets" that SSM is a-okay in the Bible.
