    Very well if he was rude and officious then he would be a jerk, but if he was not and just following church doctrine than he wasn't.

    You got me. You're stupid no matter what language you're speaking, and I just can't seem to pull it off period.

    I'm glad we agree.

    Why don't you put up a sign on your church's front door that reads "No Adulterers Allowed" and see what that does to Sunday Mass attendance.
    How is he putting up a sign that says "no sinners allowed in church?"

    A pastor has the responciblity of his office to correct membes who are stuborn in their sin. A member can be excommuincated (by the congregation) for doing so. The BSA is not a member of the church it is an org that has taken a positon that is counter to the doctrine and it is required of the pastor to notify that the BSA chapter cannot use their facilities due to this. Anyway it probably was a decision made by the chruch elders that the BSA chapter to be evicted.

    You must have forgotten Matthew 33:282 "And Jesus said 'Get out of my temple faggot, you're not welcome here.' "
    He also didnt say to the prostitute "go forth and keep being a prostitute".

    That is your opinion, and you are welcome to it

    IMO, he was not only a jerk, but a poor example of a human being. As a leader, he symbolizes everything that is wrong with humanity.

    I swear to God, reading through your response is almost as painful as the topic at hand. It's almost impossible to take you seriously.

    Not discriminating is not a sin, therefore the boyscouts have not sinned. They simply now allow gays into their organization, just like any real church would.

    Do you believe a church that actually followed the bible would turn away a gay person trying to come to sunday service?

    I don't attack my constituents. Bob is my constituent now.
    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.
