    DALLAS -- The United Church of Christ has accepted a predominantly gay Dallas megachurch into its fold. That means about a quarter of the mainline denomination's members in Texas and Louisiana attend the same church. The North Texas Association of the Cleveland, Ohio-based UCC voted 32-9 last month to admit the 4,300-member Cathedral of Hope after a year-long courtship. The cathedral bills itself as “the world's largest liberal Christian church with a primary outreach to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.'' The cathedral becomes the fourth largest church in the denomination. It decided to affiliate with the UCC after the...

    BOSTON, November 28, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Boston Archbishop Sean O'Malley wrote a pastoral letter last week calling on Catholics to show true love to persons with homosexual tendencies.

This is not suitable for children. “I’m at my wits’ end,” the young woman wrote. “I’ve asked pastors, friends, parents, God, and message boards this question and still haven’t received an intelligent answer that I can live with. Why are homosexual acts wrong? I’m a Christian and believe in the Bible, but this part always stumps me.” According to my friend, Dr. J.
