“Free will is essential to our humanity and essential to our being created in the image of God,” Kolodny said.

Thanks for the post. I will add it to the ever growing complaint I have with the modern American Religion and her Arminian/Pelagian/Free Will soteriology.

They are moving being plain vanilla homosexuality to multi'partner free love bisexuality.

Didn;t take them long to start pushing for more forms of perversion, did it?

Once the Church endorses one perversion, they imply thre validity of all perversions. Political pressure and corrupted church officials will determine which perversion is holy and which remain a perversion.

Debra Kolodny. She argued that having multiple sexual partners can be “holy.”

“Free will is essential to our humanity and essential to our being created in the image of God,” Kolodny said. She charged that denying free choice in sex preference was “perpetuating the hetero-patriarchy,” helping the “radical right,” ignoring bisexuality, and making it easier for “hate” to continue.

Libertarian free will used to justify autonomous human behavior. The Creator of the universe finds their behavior to be an abomination. Do they care? No. They create an idol in their own image instead of submitting to the revelation of God.

But after suffering for years from a desire to be a woman, Swenson finally divorced and had the operation. “I don’t recommend that any one become transgender,” Swenson said. “It’s a very painful process.”

UNDERSTATEMENT of the millennium!

Kolodny said polyamory does not usually involve simultaneous group sex. But there are exceptions . . .

Ah, so Arnold is really just another person of faith! Isn't the (Mystical) Body way cool???

“Where in religion did we get the idea that some people are more worthy than others?” she wondered.

Maybe the whole Heaven/Hell thing is related in some small way to those concepts. Not that where your eternal soul is going to spend eternity is all that important to the Christian religion. I can see how these people could be confused.

Cervone, with her same-sex partner at her side, wondered how many “nameless men and women” must die before this country moves beyond tolerance to freedom for all people.

All of the people I have ever met had a name. I wonder where she finds these nameless people. It must be really hard to get a job, buy a car, or collect social security without a name. I guess being tolerant of namelessness just isn't good enough.

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) declined Swenson's offer...

Thank God for small favors.

Since we've allowed these malcontents to define the debate as gay marriage, everything less than that blasphemy is seen as acceptable.

I used to come to FR to relax, but articles like this raise my blood pressure to emergency-room levels.

How many people at these events have already been, or will be, convicted of sexual offences?

“I know a lot of women who chose to become lesbian,” Kolodny said. “Love between two people is always beautiful,” she added, and should be regarded as part of free choice.

What an airhead.
I guess love between your husband and your daughter "is always beautiful"?

Between your best friend and your mother?
It's all "free choice", right?

Unreal. And these creeps want to make their values (or lack of them) religiously accepted by all.

Kolodny, who is Jewish, explained that she could not conclude the session without discussing polyamory.

“I am a strong ally of those in healthy, polyamorous relationships,” declared Debra Kolodny. She argued that having multiple sexual partners can be “holy.” Kolodyn was leading a workshop at the WOW (Witness Our Welcome) 2003 convention, an ecumenical gathering for “sexually and gender inclusive Christians.”

Gee, I guess she never read anything the Bible has to say about sexual relations apart from monogamous heterosexuality. Or maybe she has, finds it inconvenient, and has decided to define it away.

She argued that having multiple sexual partners can be “holy.”

Having multiple sexual partners can be "holey," but just because that sounds like "holy" doesn't make it so.

This could be renamed, "Why I left the United Methodist Church and Became a Southern Baptist."

A word of Warning for any United Methodist sending their child to TCU… I grew up in a "conservative" United Methodist Church in Texas. So as a freshman at TCU I joined the Wesley Foundation on campus. WHAT A SURPRISE THAT WAS! The leadership brought gay and lesbian individuals in to "teach" us how our long held belief that homosexuality is sinful was not Biblical. I got out of that place fast! This was around the time the Southern Baptist were making waves at their conventions for taking stands on this very issue... I knew where I should transfer my membership! I've been very happy there ever since in the Southern Baptist Church.
