Why not? God sure is going to. Kicking out all the boy scouts because they won't let you kick out only the gay ones, Jesus must be so proud. Love the whole do unto others and love thy neighbor feel to it. They should be begging for God's forgiveness not patting themselves on the back.

This is the warning I received from the "moderator":

I'm not certain why this post would receive such a warning, but it did. I'm posting it anyways.

So, you're blasting the Churches here for not hewing to "do unto others/love they neighbor" thing as you see fit, while throwing in your assurances that God will place blame upon them for their deeds.

Not as I see fit dear, I'm not even Christian, I'm just going by what their own book says. If you want to place your bets that God is going to side with Churches that kick out all of the Boy Scouts because the adults that run the program won't let them to be openly hostile to their gay ones, you go right ahead. But you have read the Bible haven't you? You explain to me how they are getting either of those two concepts right here.

Boy Scouts need to go back to having standards. I believe they need to protect the boys from predators. Not all gays but some could be molesters.

Praying for you. You will not enter the kingdom of heaven with that type of sinful life.

Are you so tempted by the flesh of this temporary life that you are willing to give up everlasting life in heaven?

I'm a church-going Christian.:)

And at my church, "St. Martin's Second Reformed Lutheran Church & Microbrewery Of Tobyhanna", our minister, "Pastor Gay Bob", says we're ALL going to heaven simply because we are CHRISTIANS !

PEACE !

Since when did GOD give "christians" the right to judge ANYONE? Hypocritical christians are the reason a lot of "sinners" won't even consider going to church simply because of their "Do as I say, not as I do" attitudes.

Christians, don't fool yourselves into believing you have a place in Heaven based on your own arrogance and ignorance. Clean up your back yard before raking around in others. JUDGE NOT LEST YOU BE JUDGED.

We all are sinners in the eyes of God. The Bible gives us a blueprint to live our life by. Homosexuality is against the Bible. It is a sin. Just like adultery is a sin. No one is completely perfect. We are supposed to live as close to His Word as possible and by giving into lustful wills like homosexuality you won't get into heaven. Better to be celibate than to risk eternity. No earthly pleasure is worth what is in store in heaven.

My opinion is its safer for boys in Boy Scouts than it is in Churches.

Just a fact!

Maybe the Church wants to get rid of competition?
