In reference to Posthuman's comments:
You are deluded sir. You can't simultaneously believe that a "lifestyle" is "wrong" and yet "not cast judgment." That makes no sense whatsoever, but alas, religion is the great deceiver, absolute faith in the absence of evidence.
First, I am not deluded, obviously your opinion. There is nothing misleading or deceiving about my thoughts. Organized religion has its issues, I don't disagree with that, the article clearly articulates that point by the mere fact that a group who have been called by their faith to love, find themselves at each other's throats. I don't believe that the lack of support or endorsement of a group's actions constitutes casting judgement upon individuals who do endorse that action. What you did not include in your quote is the what I stated after that: They reach out in love and support for their fellow human beings regardless of their sexual orientation. This is the call Christians are given and I believe that the majority fall into this group. Caring, loving, Christ like human beings, who are not perfect, that would give of themselves for people like us, despite our sexuality.
As for absolute faith in the absence of evidence, that's what faith is... believing in something without the need for proof, a higher spiritual being, a belief.
Most Christians are self righteous, it's coded into their belief system (believing they are the only true path to the giant sky fairy). If they're not, they're simply bad Christians.
No way man! Christians believe, because of their faith, that there is one god and through Jesus Christ alone, there is salvation. It has nothing to do with "them" and they do NOT believe that "they are the only true path" to anything. Christians believe they are sinners, not worthy of the grace God has shown them. There is no "they" in Christianity, it's about Him (God). Not everyone who calls themself a Christian acts, speaks or conducts themselves as Christ like, the article, again, is clear reference to this. However, I think articles such as this and reactions such as yours are a lot like "thowing the baby out with the bath water".
Religion is the poison running through the blood of this country.
I think this is a statement that conveys great intolerence. Faith based organizations and their members do a lot in our society for caring and outreach to those who are in need. I'm sorry you feel otherwise.
