Posted on 02/25/2010 8:51:53 PM PST by daniel1212
Though mainline denominations already welcome LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) persons, the multifaith group Intersections says it's not enough.
"[W]e must sing their welcoming as loudly as we sing the hymns," the group declares....
Intersections Director Robert Chase maintains the "'God vs. gays' dichotomy is false" and "reflective of only part of Christendom."
"The religious rights divisive paradigm is paralleled by more progressive stances that have resulted in inclusive institutional transformation," he stated.
A Pew Research Center's survey also found wide support for homosexuality among lay people in mainline Protestant churches.

What’s wrong? Aren’t their pews emptying fast enough to satisfy the gay mafia?
Stats on differences btwn denominations regards homosexual here, http://peacebyjesus.witnesstoday.org/RevealingStatistics.html#Sec4 and refutation of pro homosexual polemics here: http://peacebyjesus.witnesstoday.org/Homosex_versus_the_Bible.html
I guess we can tear out the book of Romans, Revelations and parts of the Gospels because of all those pesky rules and standards.
This is why the traditional denominations are dying out.
You know what they said to do in Germany when the Auschwitz-bound trains rumbled by churches.
Examination of pro homosexual polemics reveals that they effectively require negating the authority of the Bible. Like the harlot whose covetousness constrained her to assent to the destruction of a child rather than let her opposing claimant have it (1Ki. 3), the end result of pro-homosex polemics is that it effectively negate the authority of the very source they seek to use for their own purposes
I agree that the “God vs Gay” dichotomy is false.
It is really God vs sin. God vs sexual sin.
Churches speak out everyday against adultery, promiscuity, stealing, selfishness, murder, racism, slavery, pornography, prostitution, gossip, gluttony, drunkeness...all manner of moral weaknesses. Yet the only ones trying to force their sinful point of view on others, “LOUDLY” are the homosexuals.
I find that fascinating. This trait seems to validate the biblical story of Sodom and Gommorah, where the homosexuals came to Lot’s house and demanded that he hand over his male guests so that they could rape them; then they shouted at Lot when he tried to talk them out of doing such a sinful thing. The homosexuals shouted, “how dare you tell us what to do!”....
They haven’t changed in thousands of years....
A more appropriate title for “progressive” churches would be “sidelined churches”. For certainly these socially aware groups have sidelined themselves from the gospel truths.
I disagree. Feminism is a much louder and more pernicious blight forced on American Christianity. Homosexuals are merely mimicking the successful female strategies of obnoxious noise and total disregard for God's clearly stated place for women.
It is also of note that as a movement it forces homosexuality into places it has no place being, from Lot’s house to Bible passages.
Yet we all have sinned, and so we seek their salvation, but when something which is clearly sin is justified, then it becomes an issue.
Arent their pews emptying fast enough to satisfy the gay mafia?
No, they want to expedite the process. BUT, I think it’s a good thing. They aren’t Christian anymore, so ending the pretense will clear the air.
What a bunch of crap. Even when they try and say something meaningful, it's just recycled revisionist tripe. A heart as big as a whale and shit for brains. Tom Harkin must be close by.
How much does God hate this particular vileness? Check what happened to S and G...
and “reflective of only part of Christendom.” —> That’s crazy, no Chuch says it is God v/s gays. All Churchs support people with homosexual tendencies who DO NOT ACT on it, just like we support those who have other tendencies (alcoholism or other sexual tendencies) who do not act on them, or we support those who fell into those but are now redeeming themselves.
Rot in the pews.
Transformation into what? A compost pile?
For me, willfully manipulating the Bible is the greater sin, and spinning the story of Sodom to make its most singular physical sin something other than sodomy has been a great effort of pro homosexuals.
