    You guys obviously didn't read the article. The church lost 2/3 of it's financial support for becoming gay-inclusive. The pastor is a hero and I wish there were more like him.

    How can you say this when this caused them to lose financial support? Did you even read the article? You are so quick to judge without even reading the article.

    It isn't right to be critical of churches for being anti-gay and then to also be critical of them when they finally make the move to accept gays. Gee some people can never be pleased. icon_rolleyes.gif

    If a church accepts homosexuality (yes I mean actually sexual love not just desire not acted on) as NOT immoral or sinful, then I think that is good.

    I think the viewpoint of the pastor in question is that homosexual love is ok as long as directed into a relationship (i.e., being a slut -gay or str8- is not acceptable).

    Yeah I gathered that too, that I think is reasonable .. it is what some call being old fashioned. But there are many gay and straight desire monogamy anyway. As long as it (being "chaste") applies to heterosexuals and and homosexuals then they are demonstrating equality.

    Agreed.

    Why shouldn't this church open their doors? Jesus would've welcomed everyone. It's too bad more churches aren't this welcoming and inclusive.

    Yeah, I would have much more respect if more Christians were actually like that (though I still wouldn't be a christian myself).
