    Thats a beautiful thought, Jack. I recently came across that passage reading the bible on the crapper.

    Got a mirror?
    I dont hate the guy and I tolerate him as proven by my previous posts. Try again plz? (I am disgusted but I don't hate "them")

    You simply assume I hate.

    That is just plain silliness you speak, make some sense please.
    If they are saying "Get out of my church!".... I guess they love them? Or do you cast your enemies to oblivion and beyond to never see them again? Just because I said I hope the bigots stay secluded doesn't mean I hate them. Im not the one enforcing the rules. I just hope it happens to end up that way without me interfering at all. This isnt my battle except for the part where I argue on the internet in this case.

    If the church thought it immoral to consume pork, and the cookie baking club suddenly proclaimed that it was going to include members who bake with lard - it would probably suffer the same fate. However, that same Church wouldn't refuse the Boy Scouts on those same grounds (that they don't ban cookie bakers who use lard). Your stance on embracing homosexuality doesn't speak to how you should make cookies, it does speak to how you prepare kids to make ethical and moral choices: some people believe that embracing homosexuality is immoral.
    No, it's that he's picked what he thinks is a worse sin, then discriminated on it. (Which he can do, but it doesn't line up with the bible.)

    So let's get this straight:

    - The boy scouts are a sinful organization because they now allow sinners. (homosexuals)
    - There are no gradients of sin. All sin is equal in the eyes of god.
    - We are all sinners.
    - Churches allow humans into their church, which because they're human, are also sinners.

    Therefore, this church is doing the EXACT SAME THING the boyscouts are doing. They're allowing sinners into their congregation (that's the point of a church!)

    You don't see the hypocrasy in this? So the boyscouts previously let those guilty of gluttony, lust, envy, and all the other sins, and that was ok, but as soon as they let homosexuals in, that's a no-no because that sin is worse?

    Show me in the bible where it says homosexuality is a worse sin than the others.

    It's so sad how passionately these people are defending their own prejudices. This is the biggest problem I have with christians. They condemn and cry and whine about how homosexuals are horrible sinners, yet their own lives are chocked full of sin.

    Simply pathetic.

    Actually what I think they're really doing is just continuing the strategy of picking a 'sin' that relatively few partake in and proceed to oppress a small minority that was already disliked and misunderstood. Very noble of them. If they went after gluttony, envy, birth control etc, they would have no congregation.

    Proclamations from the new black hole deity maybe, set to swallow and destroy everything in its path, eh? The new state religion.

    This "church" of which you speak is the most populated in the world, with 2 billion members, 33% of all the people who believe in a creator world-wide.

    Better hope that those of us who have been pretty darn tolerant, up to this point, of the despicable and unnatural... better hope we continue to be far more tolerant than you folks are... because once we begin to match your intolerance... well, lets just put it this way, one would sure see a lot more of those currently empty closets filling back up again...

    So watch your tongue and practice what you preach...
