I thought they were all gay. But, maybe you're looking for the church of "jesus fu**ing christ." If you GIS "jesus fu**ing christ"(without the ** of course), you wont be disappointed.

A good church will accept you for who you are regardless of whether you're straight or gay because they believe that it is not man's place to judge others. I'd say just try them all until you find one that you feel comfortable in.

I will give my advice on trying to find a "church" that will accept a gay person. DO NOT go to a church of christ! I attended Whitson Chapel church of christ and to the memebers of that church it is a very bad sin to be gay. Call up Malcolm Hill and ask him what the C of C thinks. Ohh..btw..ask him what he thinks on other topics as well like marriage and divorce. That will really bring up an interesting conversation!

This might be old news at this point, but I'd try the united church in the south of town. If not that go to the universalist church or even the local quaker meeting.

May I chime in since someone dragged this dormant thread back up from 2 1/2 years ago?

First off, it is not a sin to "be gay." I don't think many people have much control over what their sexual attractions turn out to be as they grow up. Temptations to do all sorts of things come upon even the most committed Christian folks. It's what you do in response that matters. Do you follow God's instructions, or the beliefs of the politically correct at this particular moment in history?

God, through His Word, the Bible, has definitely condemned homosexual acts in both the Old and New Testaments. In very strong language, I might add. Interestingly, this particular sin is so heinous to the Lord that He saw fit to put a heavenly blowtorch to two cities in Abraham's time.

So what should Christians, or for that matter, a church, do when a gay person walks in? The biblical response would be similar to the way Jesus reacted to the extremely sinful (hetero, in this case) Samaritan woman he met at a well. 1) He loved her. This is obvious from everything He said to her. 2) He had compassion for her. 3) He told her the truth, which may be defined as the way God sees things. That's the way they really are. 4) He forgave her sin when she indirectly confessed it to Him. 5) Lastly, and most important to this thread, He commander her to "go and sin no more."

So, a good response would be to show love and compassion for a person who's caught up in this very destructive and filthy lifestyle. But at the same time, a Christian person, preacher, or church should not shy away from calling a sin a sin just because the current popular cultural trend is "anything goes." This behavior was condemned as perverted and filthy just a few short years ago. When Christians have the opportunity to speak with homosexuals, they should tell them that there is a God in heaven who loves them, wants them to spend eternity with Him, and in order to do that requires them to repent of homosexual acts (and other sins too) and believe in His Son Jesus Christ whom He sent to die for our sins.

That being said, I would think many churches in Cookeville would accept you with open arms, but not accept your lifestyle. That is what Jesus would do.

Hahahaha... That , sir, is in a nutshell why religion is bogus. Why would an omnipotent creator of everything have so much time on his hands as to be overwhelmingly concerned with what a couple dudes or chicks decide to do with each other? Its a centuries old system of control and a damn good one at that because there is no way to get clarification or updated details other than to reread translated and manipulated text and have "faith" that you have intercepted a story correctly.
Just be gay, be straight, but stay home and don't get wrapped up in the failicy of this god character.

Excellant representation of the truth!
