Roughly a month after bishops announced proposals for how same-sex weddings and gay clergy should be handled, Methodists gathered in Wichita said they were hopeful their church will find a resolution to conflicts over sexuality. "We're discerning the shape of how we will live out our Christian faith in the future," said Bishop Ruben Saenz Jr. at a listening session that began the Wichita conference for Kansas and Nebraska Methodists.

Rule #3, smart people know the difference between homosexuals and pedophiles. Quite frankly, it seems increasingly likely that Lamar is the latter.

Good for the Methodists. Jesus taught of love and forgiveness. it is good to see the Church struggling to return to that message rather than to be judgmental, and a force for negative energy in the world.

Puppy, you said there is no Jesus and now you are talking about his teachings. Are you alright?

It's appropriate even for agnostics to follow what's going on in our majority religion of Christianity. That being "progress."

"Only three [very backwards, cult like] religious groups - Mormons (37 percent favor, 55 percent oppose), white evangelical Protestants (31 percent favor, 61 percent oppose), and Jehovah's Witnesses (25 percent favor, 53 percent oppose)- show majority opposition for same-sex marriage. Combined, these three religious groups comprise only 19 percent of the general population."

So, what is the difference, besides the age of consent?

Smart people also know the difference between normal sexuality and homosexuality?

But, educate us, is a 34 year old man having sex with a 14 year old boy considered pedophilia or homosexuality?
Everybody knows homosexuality is sex orientation
.
and pedophiles are republican voters
.
No connection between the two

Both since in most cases one goes hand in hand with the other.

Simple, one is a natural sexual orientation, the other is a mental disorder that leaves one attracted to minors.
An intelligent person would not require the explanation.

You aren't smart.

Do you really require further explanation? I don't really have time to explain all of the things that you failed to learn in primary education.

Now, consider that up until 2009, 14 was the age of consent in Canada, and it still is in many countries.
I have no control over what another sovereign nation cares to do with their civil laws. It appears that, as your post implies, they have since changed their mind on that issue.

It isn't my fault that you have no valid argument, so you instead descend into minutiae on irrelevant points having no bearing upon this topic. That is further proof of your weakness of both mind and character.

Both are mental disorders. Homosexuality is a mental disorder that makes a person attracted to members of the same sex and in in the cases of male homosexuals usually young underage boys.

No, learn to read.

Uneducated gay, in California a minor is 18 and in every place in the U.S. it is 16 and over, and none of those are paedophilia.
You keep raising pedophilia, of which you are completely ignorant, because you have no valid on topic argument.
It isn'y my fault that you are incompetent.

They are however unacceptable relationships for adults, like homosexuality.
Sorry, self-loathing closet case, that's legal.

But, I agree, homosexuality does leave gays attracted to children, in many cases as young as three month, like LGBT gay rights leader, James Rennie.
You are an idiot with no valid argument.
