Please revise your sentence "Gay-rights-based Church of the Nazarene, was targeted"....This is a very misleading comment. The Church of the Nazarene is not "Gay-rights-based"

Sure they are. They are against gay rights. It figures prominently in their beliefs.
At any rate, this forum is not the place for your complaint, rather you should be righting to the Kansas City Star who wrote the piece.

Either you take the bible as the word of God or you don't. If you do then PLEASE explain why there are NO positive passages about any gay persons whatsoever.

Rom 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
Rom 1:23 And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves:
Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
Rom 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.
Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

I believe and read the Bible. I believe it's the Word of God. I just don't accept YOUR interpretation. Please show any place where it says anything negative about gay people!

Simple, because they have been intentionally written out of modern translations of the bible by people who are executing personal political agendas rather than being true to the original text. Here are some examples:

Any questions?

LOL okay, so if the bible was written with the express intent of removing anything positive pertaining to homosexuality then why do non-heteros insist on twisting passages and thereby attempt to find wording that you admit doesn't exist?

God doesn't hate you, bro, but he hates what you do. He hates your gay activities equally with my stealing music. Only difference, though, is that I'm not trying to twist His word to make myself feel better for my sins. Oops.

I think God has bigger fish to fry than worrying about two same-sex individuals loving each other and living the same, boring life that other "married" couples live.

This is ridiculous. The same we exegete scriptures in a way that allows women to be ordained we should also acknowledge that homosexuals should have equal rights to heterosexuals. It's only a matter of time until we either wake up and smell the coffee or the Church of the Nazarene, along with Christianity as a whole, dies. They've predicted a 10 year lifespan for denominations such as ours--that is, we have 10 years to change our ways or die completely to the Western world. I guess we'd better invest more in Africa and Asia as that's what'll be left of us.

Check out Dr Michael Brown's stand about the issues surrounding GLBTs at http://www.coalitionofconscience.com/PrinterF...
and
http://www.coalitionofconscience.com/articles...
He is a Jew who believs in Jesus who has personally taken up a mission to awaken Christians to the reality of what is going on in the USA with the GLBT movement and their responsibility as Bible believers to engage the culture with a more Biblical, radical and realistic approach. You might find his work interesting. He recently had a formal debate with the Human Rights Campaign (a prominant Gay activist group) president Mr. Harry Knox. You can check out a numuber of Dr. Brown's relevant articles at http://www.coalitionofconscience.org/articles...

The one thing the B,capital Bible says is they are an abomination. Man shall not lay down with man as with he does with a woman. PLAIN ENOUGH!

Can you get any crazier than being a Jew fer Jeebus Against Homosexuals?

I'm sure the funding stream from right wing hate organizations for such nutcases is ample, though.

Christianity is dying because you have taken your once saved always saved for granted. You have turned your selves in to pagans. You have become sin. You don;t know the difference between works and good works that identify what a christian is is.
You have identified your selves as worshipers of the goddess of sex. You don't know what it means to walk in the spirit. Your pastors preach this but you don't how to do it. WE are all sinneers, but that does not mean we continue to sin every day. You have not been taught of how to keep a lid on your potential to sin.
Your sins are not Holy. Your Holiness is seen by GOD as keeping a lid on your potential to sin. You can't hide them form GOD. Jesus died once. You keep crucifying Jesus on the cross every day. IS he in heaven? Or is still hanging on the cross.
Same sex is tempting GOD. THEY love their desires more then they love Jesus. They demand that sin be accepted by Jesus to show his love to them. Think about what they are saying to Jesus.

Person. Think about what I said. Look at your own life. Are you walking in the Christian Spirit?
You have no truth, only self deception and illusion. I live in the real world not some self-deluded fantasy based upon a dubious and self contradicting bundle of half truths and outright lies. This is the year 2010, it's time to grow up and be an adult and live your own life rather than abdicating self responsibility to the brainwashing of others. The real question is are you walking in the steps of self determination or allowing others to dictate your knowledge and thoughts. I think we can all see that the latter is true...
