Duh. The church is a business and as the Bishop noted they will lose the under 35 group if they don't accept same sex marriage. The bigots are dying off and where does that leave the church? Up a creek without a paddle.

Yet there IS the possibility that he is looking a Scripture for guidance. Matt. 25:31-46 and Luke 10:25-37 come to mind.

For too long people of faith have been taking a bad rap because of those groups who have changed Christianity from a religion of forgiveness, community and compassion to one of witch hunts, self righteousness, deceit, finger pointing and political power.

Homophobia is characterized as a person who puts his/her nose in someone else's business where it does not belong

To control your homophobia; repeat this to yourself:

A better mantra that homophobes should learn is "Your business is none of my business." If they believed that it would solve a lot of problems.
