    Since when is attraction a requirement for marrying or impregnating someone?

    Re: Megachurch Pastor Comes Out Of Closet

    yeah, this kind of stuff goes on

    in september bishop eddie long's new birth missionary baptist megachurch and empire in upscale lithonia, georgia, outside atlanta, was rocked by a scandal a bit more troubling

    4 young men from the self ordained bishop's longfellow's youth forum "accused him of repeatedly coercing them into homosexual acts and of abusing his considerable moral authority over them while plying them with cash, new cars, lodging and lavish trips"

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/09/26/us/26pastor.html

    according to the grey lady (nyt), bishop regularly "rails against homosexuality"

    he wants a "ban on gay marriage" and "even holds seminars promising to 'cure' homosexuals"

    it should be noted the bishop denies these accusations, and by the accounts of the young men themselves they were all above age of consent when these things allegedly happened

    is it hypocrisy?

    is it weakness, failure to live up to one's own standards?

    is it mine to judge?

    how much do i care?

    it's sad, it's human, it happens

    i hope he, y'know, repents, gets right on this, finds a better place

    i hope the young men are ok

    take care, y'all

    enjoy the elections, they're gonna be wild, either way

    Since he seems to be an unrepentant sinner, he shouldn't be preaching. I would leave the church if he stayed.

    Attraction determines orientation was my point, and being gay does not mean a complete lack of attraction to some one of the opposite sex.

    That, of course, operates under the assumption that being gay is a sin.

    Right, and I'm just adding that you don't even have to be the least bit attracted to someone to marry or impregnate them.

    This is your opinion, and is entirely irrelevant to what he actually does.

    Yes, it's my opinion based on the fact that homosexuality is a sin. It's irrelevant to what he does, of course. It's his choice.

    I do not think this word "fact" means what you think it does. Your opinion is not fact, it is opinion.
