    The military now allows gays to join. Do you harbor the same disgust for the military that you do for the boyscouts?

    Do you think any church would deny a local veteran's organization having a bible study on church grounds because the military allows gays now?

    Well, it is irrelevant.

    This pastor's church is under no obligation to follow any teaching of Jesus it chooses not to.

    I don't know that Jesus actually said all sins are equal but, even if he did, both you and the pastor have the same right to view lying about your wife looking fat in a dress and murder differently.

    26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. 28 Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

    What exactly would you call that?
    I didn't view it that way. I haven't seen it reported that way. Perhaps I missed it; but nonetheless, I support what they did. I don't support churches who ban little boys from their church...for whatever reason.

    It said those people deserve death, after listing a laundry list of sins, to include murder, strife, deceit, malice, gossip, slander, god-hating, insolence, arrogance and pride.

    It did not say the sin of homosexuality itself deserves death. Try again.

    And if you want to go pick through the old covenant next, you should just save it unless you want to admit all of the old laws are still valid. You know, like stoning raped women.

    How would you characterize it then?

    That's pretty much what you're advocating for when it comes to others, right?
    No, I'm advocating that Christians don't penalize and stigmatize all boy scouts because they consider that some few of them are sinners.
