    This is a positive start. Now if more Southern Baptists would just open their minds and do the exact same thing this pastor has done this could solve a lot of serious problems.

    This story is really inspiring, although it's a shame that so many people can't open their hearts to gay people until they discover their own son or daughter is gay.
    Many church members left this pastor's church because they were appalled that their pastor showed compassion and acceptance for gay people. This division in the "Christian" church is remarkably similar to the split between North and South congregations following the Civil War, when many so-called "Christians" could not tolerate their church accepting African Americans and working for their equal rights. The bigots left and started their own churches.
