I don't need a church or a preacher to tell me what to think. I have a reading comprehension level higher than fourth grader so I can determine it by myself. What would Jesus do? Not at all what these churches have done.

It is not possible to be both a true Christian and a republican. Jesus was a socialist. Don't believe me? Read your Bible, it practically screams it. The point of being a "Christian" is to be Christ-like, which is what the word means in the first place. What these churches are doing is just about as far from Christ as you can get.
i am not a republican ,but i will answer you question. if Jesus was a socialist ,he would have gotten along well with the roman empire at the time.
Jesus never preached giving out of government force.

He would certainly expect them to turn away from their lifestyle. They can come to church; but when they are there, what they hear should be having a major impact so as to think 'WWJD'? P.S. We do get direction from faithfully studying/hearing God's word. My church family is very important to me.

I'm not sure what you just said, or how you'd have any idea what Jesus would do. But itís interesting to note that Exodus International, a Christian ministry founded 38 years ago to "pray away the gay," went public this week to announce that they are stopping that practice and becoming a more welcoming place for gays and lesbians. Why? Because they've decided that they're doing more harm than good. That's the kind of action Jesus might have supported, but I can't speak for the man. Just sayin'!

According to what Jesus says, it should not be difficult to discern. It's NOT being gay; it's ACTING UPON the desire of the sin. No one said they are not welcome, but God would expect them to turn away from their sin. Woman at the well - Jesus knew how she was living. Remember what He said to her??? Lifestyle which is not honoring God --

Last post on this issue. Gay people will keep on being gay, regardless of whether or not you think it's a sin. They will either get into heaven or they won't. Bottom line? It's God's business to be the judge. Not ours. If you don't want to hang around with them, that's your decision to make. You don't worry about them, and they won't worry about you -- or try to "recruit" you. As long as nobody's breaking the laws of man, then so be it. And to tell you the truth, I didn't really enjoy the Boy Scouts that much. We had a troop leader who was a pedophile...a straight man with a wife and kids. He was (literally) run out of town when folks found out.

Heaven: we have accepted Christ as our Savior because he took our sins upon himself on the cross. When we make that decision, then one, if gay, would turn away from that lifestyle. If not, then we have not genuinely made a commitment to Christ. There is no IF about heaven if that has not been done.

I just happened to turn on TV at 10:00 so I missed some of the beginning of the sermon. If you will listen/watch at 11:00, you will find the explanation on sin/Boy Scout decision as part of the message Severns Valley. May clear up a lot for you. Seems to be a very logical, loving explanation. On Comcast it will be on at 6:00 tonight??
