Local welcome mixed for gay Christian music artist

Apr 1, 2009 Full story: www.news.oasiscalifornia.org 44

In 1987, recording artist Ray Boltz came to Abilene to help KGNZ when the station's radio tower was destroyed in a January ice storm. Boltz, known for such singles as "Thank You" and "I Pledge Allegiance to the Lamb," helped raise $35,000 to repair the tower and returned to Abilene a number of times in the course of a successful career in contemporary Christian music. But these days, the radio station doesn't play any of his 12 No. 1 Christian radio hits, and many believers, including KGNZ's own station manager Gary Hill, admit they are struggling since Boltz revealed he was gay in the September issue of the Washington Blade, a Washington, D.C.-based gay and lesbian newspaper.

So, sinners can't be Christins? Is that what you are saying? Well... guess what BOZO... by your logic the entire world can not be Chrisitian because EVERYONE is a sinner. Yes, hipocrit, even you...(before you try and get all high and mighty and start spouting lies like "I'm the perfect Christian... blah blah blah"... don't want your growing nose to shatter your monitor as you type)

On that note, I am gay and I am NOT Christian... and the reason is because of idiotic people such as yourself. I do believe in God and Jesus, but the whole bible and religion aspect is load of crap to me... something man made to try to keep a certain control over society... something that kind of goes against God's gift of "free will".

God didn't say homosexuality is wrong, men wrote it down. Big difference.
Jesus said "love thy neighbor". Period.
NOT "love thy Christian neighbor"

Here's an idiot if I ever heard one! No christian is perfect. You know how many divorced christians there are? You know how many practice GREED? Especially greed. You notice how many christians there are and the condition that the world is in? Your a big christian phoney, like most of them are. Lets pretend and live a lie. You find out how good someone is by the helping acts they do and then you find out they don't want to lie about being gay anymore and you quickly hang them. Doesn't sound that there's much of your christ's love pouring out of you buddy. Go back in the hole you crawled out of.

Christ never said a word about gays, and you aren't the arbiter of who is a "real" christian and who is not. Christ WAS big on not judging others, though.

There is no such thing as god. Religious doctrine is fiction and is used to control people.

Oh OK by that logic all those twice married divorcees who proclaim to be christians are not christians at all since they are committing adultery. I mean how can someone get divorced when the bible says explicitly how wrong it is and still call themselves christians. Give me a break. Just keep picking and choosing Sheeple.

Gay is an orientation, not an action. DUH!
You can be gay when you have never had any kind of sex. You can be gay if you are celibate. You can be gay even if you have sex with the opposite gender.
Is you pea sized brain blown now?
And God didn't say it, a book did. A book that many people do not consider holy, so why should they be bound by your interpretation of it?
Even if you do believe it, the Bible says a LOT more about divorce being wrong, so why are so many christians doing it?

Because if you are Catholic and pay the church a bunch of money, they will pretend you were never married so you can get married again. Of course that makes your kids bastards, but hey, that's their problem, right?

I don't know much about Ray Boltz or his music, but congratulations to him for throwing a wrench in the dogma of these bigot talibangelicals. Maybe a few more instances of cognitive dissonance and they'll suddenly realize the earth is more than 6000 years old. Praiz!

Well......one thing I have NOT heard on this forum is love. "You will tell them by their love"
May not be any Christians (incidentally, Christian means Christ-like) on this forum. God, through Jesus Christ saves us....from what? From anything that keeps you from Him, anything that keeps you from being the person you were created to be. ANYTHING!

Actually Christ Jesus spoke about Sodom and Gomorrah (fag cities that burned by His hand through fire & brimstone).

To His disciples: Mark 6:11 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

Sodom - origin of term:'sodomy'

God (Jesus) made Adam & Eve - not Adam & 'steve'.

REPENT & BELIEVE THE GOSPEL!

If you actually READ the quote you put up there Jesus is talking about hospitality, the real reason the cities were destroyed not homosexuality. Of course you breeze by what the quote actually says and see Sodom and Gomorrah and immediately go to gay hating.
