    Do you find these homosexual acts disgusting or only a description of this lewd act?

    In fairness, it's not a matter of being a non-reptentant sinner but being one who is openly non-reptentant.

    Maggie genuinely doesn't seem to understand the concept about being openly in conflict with various church beliefs.

    Any homosexual can find salvation in the church of their choosing.

    What they can't do is stand up in the middle of Mass, shout they don't believe in the church's message, then refuse to leave.

    I agree. I don't think Jesus ever quantified sin saying one was worse than another.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    That really isn't relevant even if it is true though.

    Of course he didn't. He also didn't ban sinners from his church. He welcomed everyone in. These people just want to try to twist the bible to support their belief that homosexuality is "icky", while ignoring their own sin.

    I'll believe that when I see churches starting to ban people who remain fat and aren't trying to get skinny.

    No, they're coming to learn how to build fires.

    They held a widely reported on conference to specifically determine if they would continue to follow the church's general view on homosexuality.

    What exactly would you call that?

    Does this mean if a 7 year old boy says he hates girls they will kick him out?
