God judges individuals for the sins they commit, and He judges nations and cultures for the sins they tolerate. If God decides it is time for us, as a nation, to be judged, I doubt He will be deterred much by "the separation of church and state." Our First Amendment will be about as much protection as one of those little drink parasols in a typhoon.

Very true.

Yes, the sin of scandal. Those who approve of a sinful life by their actions or inactions, commit scandal. Sin against the ten commandments would also be more serious than say "not coming to a full stop at a stop sign".

Are they truely concerned with the homosexuals spiritual well being, or is it being used as a cop-out.
Yes, we must admonish the sinner.

Funny how some of you mention about how Christians, if they want to follow the law of Leviticus to the tee, would avoid eating pork. Many Christians these days do follow laws that are similar to Kosher. For instance, the old Ethiopian Orthodox church shuns pork eating and eating shellfish.

If you want to see how the church was run before the advent of the Roman Catholic Church, go to an Ethiopian Orthodox (One of the oldest Christian Churches in existence) or a Coptic Christian church (Probably the oldest of all Christian Churches) in the area. It's an awesome spiritual experience.

Oh, and homosexuality is very much a sin in both churches.

ColdRedRain, your post seems to say that The Roman Catholic Church came after these other two Coptic churches. I disagree.

Many scholars agree that the Catholic Church was founded by Jesus and that the historical record confirms that. Ethiopian Orthodox is older than the Coptic church dating about 50 A. D.

Who are these "Scholars"? Some guys in the Vatican? No, sorry, the RCC wasn't started by Jesus.

But thanks for the correction on the Ethiopian Orthodox church.

If it was not Jesus Christ, please tell me then who you think started the Roman Catholic Church.

When Jesus told Peter that he was the Rock on which he will build his Church, just what Church did Peter start?

ColdRedRain, if you don't like scholars for a source, how about this site-

The Roman Catholic church was a fully functioning organization with authority centered at Rome, as early as the middle of the 1st century. "History proves that from that time [of Peter] on, both in the East and the West, the successor of Peter was acknowledged to be the supreme head of the [Christian] Churchhttp://www.religioustole rance.org/chr_hirc.htm

Romans 1:26-27 declares homosexual desires and actions to be shameful, unnatural, lustful, and indecent.
First Corinthians 6:9 states that homosexuals are unrighteous and will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Conn. church creates stir with gay exorcism

Jun 24 01:53 PM US/Eastern


"Right now in the name of Jesus, I call the homosexuality, right now in the name of Jesus."


BRIDGEPORT, Conn.(AP)- A Connecticut church has outraged gay rights advocates by posting a video of members performing an apparent exorcism of a teen's "homosexual demons."
The 20-minute video was posted on YouTube before it was taken down.

Gay youth advocate Robin McHaelen (mih-KAY'-lehn) says the video appears to show abuse. She says she plans to report it to the Connecticut Department of Children and Families.

The boy confirms he is 16 but otherwise has declined to comment.

The Rev. Patricia McKinney of Manifested Glory Ministries in Bridgeport says he is 18 and came to the church on his own seeking help.

She denies the church is prejudiced and says it took care of the youth.

I am so glad, and so proud that the Cathedral has been recognized in this manner. Everyone who comes to town wonders in Awe about this building. I am proud to say it is our Cathedral. After traveling for many years trying to find a religion I could really believe in, I walked into the Cathedral and was over whelmed with the feeling of holiness in that building. As large as it is, and as many people who are members, it is still a community church where people do know each other and welcome all people coming from all different walks of life and religions. Catholic: Stands for United. We are a people in union with our God and all others who wish to worship in this "Very Holy Building of or Lord."
God Bless you all, for or against.
