I'm neither It's still in the Christian bible genius. In Leviticus where the part about homosexuals is. The point the guy was making was that people selectively quote that part while ignoring those other rules.
Maybe try a reading comprehension class. It could help you.
You're neither what?

The old testament is not a christian bible, genius.

Are you a Levite?

What guy?

The idea that "Homosexuals Destroyed the Church in Highlawn" is stupid. If a church is a healthy community, no one can come in from the outside and destroy it. What is even more ridiculous is that Highlawn Baptist was affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. They aren't exactly inclusive to begin with. Now, what would be a more plausible assertion would be that "Homosexuals Destroyed the Protestant Episcopal Church" or even the Presbyterian Church. I am neither a homophobe nor a homophile. Rot and decay starts from the inside and goes out. Homosexuals don't storm the gates, kick in the door and conquer the place. If anything, a homosexual attack would have strengthened that church. Look what it did for Chick-filet.(Probably misspelled). Shoot, that would galvanize the populace and they would probably have more people attending their services than their huge sanctuary could hold. It seems like a pitiful attempt to find a scape-goat. People are more than their sexual preference. I am more concerned if a person would help a neighbor who didn't have enough food or whose house burned down, than I am with their sexual orientation. In other words, if they are a good kind person. Personally, I've decided not to fight the straight vs. homosexual battle. Again, my 50 years of experience have taught me that sexual orientation is as relevant as the color of one's skin when it comes to being a decent or self-absorbed selfish person. If you put your desires and self above everyone else, I don't want anything to do with you, gay or straight. The opposite is also true. If you are a kind person concerned about the welfare of others and not self obsessed, then I'd be glad to have you as a neighbor, gay or straight. But that also means not trying to demand others see things your way. If you want to march in a gay rights parade fine. Just don't expect me to march in the parade or to take up your crusade, except to protect your rights and dignity because you are a person, not because of your sexual preference.

Yesterday when driving by Highlawn Baptist Church I was stunned to see the building up for auction. I remember when they had to direct traffic and tell you where to park because the crowds were so large. I read everything I could because it was so unbelievable. When reading about the church being the people, not the building ... so Highlawn Baptist was not dead etc. What a load of horse manure. The argument about the destruction of a building not being the destruction of the entity it housed only holds water if the building burned down or was destroyed in a natural disaster. This building will be torn down because the community that built it, the real Highlawn Baptist, disintegrated and ABANDONED it. The pastor talking about the great things God is doing there, planting new churches...What a load of crap! Talk about self delusion and grandiosity!!! Wow! That is more outrageous than the claim that homosexuals destroyed Highlawn Baptist. What a load of crap! The pastor and others can try to spin the story however they want to, but as a complete outsider with no feelings for or against the pastor, it is clearly evident that Highlawn Baptist Church is no more. What an incomprehensible tragedy! This guy, if he were Pharoah of Egypt at the time of it's occuring, would try to convince everyone that the Plague of Locusts that hit Egypt was a blessing bestowed upon Egypt by God because of it's kind treatment of His people. It is a sad thing to see a once vibrant and thriving church tear itself apart. As the master himself said, "A house divided against itself can not stand." It is a catastrophe and tragedy beyond all measure. Trying to spin it or sugar coat it just adds insult to injury. I am so sorry for those good people who are quite understandably in mourning. A great and powerful presence in Huntington, WV. has fallen. What a tragedy. Period.

In addition to all of you who want to see churches fail, just remember that churches have clothed and fed countless numbers of people. They have built schools and hospitals. Because they are grass roots organizations, they are far more effective than government could ever be. So those of you who gleefully want to see churches fail, be consistent and when you are in need and down and out, do not accept any assistance from them.

It is terrible when a church shuts its doors.

Yes it is. In the past, I imagine Highlawn Baptist fed and clothed many of the needy. Think of the sacrifice and devotion it must have taken to build Highlawn Baptist to what it once was. It is a cautionary tale we should all pay attention to. I worry about our nation in general. We've become so divided and polarized. A house divided against itself can not stand. Can a nation divided against itself stand? Instead of seeing people as gay or straight, left wing or right wing, democrat or republican, we need to see ourselves as Americans first with far more in common than we have in differences. We are all in this together. Could what happened to Highlawn Baptist happen to us as a nation? That thought occured to me almost immediately after I saw the auction sign outside of the church. This is a cautionary tale for us all.
People who gleefully want to see this happen to other churches are twisted and sick. United we stand. Divided we fall.

Excuse me, but the reason why highlawn has lost the reputation of being a good area is the druggie thieves that lives in the area and the good people are too afraid to report anything they see cause they dont want to be be the next.

I'm sorry but the trash has taken over that area including Huntington period..

The new mayor may do something with this town but I dont think he has that much fight.

The last one out, turn off the lights.

Pretty silly speculation. Neither homosexuals nor druggies nor criminals had anything to do with the collapse of Highlawn Baptist Church. In reality the church committed slow suicide. There are far more good people in Huntington than bad. They aren't going to be driven out of town. Many have nowhere else to go. They won't leave. St. Mary's is BIG MONEY. Those who have invested in it won't let any two bit thugs or crack heads screw things up. It seems like a lot of you people are into being victims of some shadowy evil that you use to keep from being proactive and taking control of your lives. The homosexual conspiracy is all in your paranoid heads. Why would any of them waste their time and energy in bringing down a church that means nothing to them to begin with? They have their own lives.
