The ELCA has joined with the other ten largest religious bodies in America in ruling that a non-celibate homosexual, upholding their long-standing, biblically based policy, "Practicing homosexual persons are precluded from the ordained ministry of this church."

The bible repeatedly and explicitly condemns homosexual acts, in both the Old and New Testaments. The ELCA has been in steep decline ever since part of its leadership has waffled on these biblical doctrines.

What else does your loving god condemn Bill? When I asked Bill over and over if "he" commits sin, he would not answer.

It's the bible according to Bill folks and you'd better pay attention ... because his god is one nasty finger-pointing creature that only someone with a fear-based doctrine would follow. There is no semblance of tenderness, nurturing, understanding, or love in this wicked god of Bill's making.

No, June, all the hate you have toward the God of the bible, who repeatedly and explicitly condemns homosexual acts, is misplaced. He is indeed a God of love. The "god" you've made is quite the opposite.

Those with same sex attractions who followed the God of the bible were spared the horrors of HIV, which decimated a generation. Those who accepted your god a hate largely died.

I don't have to speak for the God of the bible. He speaks decisively for Himself. June, on the other hand, must spew all the hate, prejudice, and anti-Christian bigotry of the "god" she has made of her arrogance, hate, and condemnation of Christianty.

I really feel sorry for you, June. You must be miserable mired in all that hate and prejudice, and the worst is yet to come. I think that deep down you had enough knowledge of true Christianity to know that God will not be mocked. You have a Dutch surname, and most New World Dutch know well enough that the bible is true. You'll be held accountable for that knowledge, June, no matter how hard you try to deny it. All your hate will determine your eternal future.

To those who have been given much, much is expected. You chose to hate what was given to you.

Are you denying that you endlessly post anti-Christian defamation and claim that the Word of God as it appears in the bible is "hate?"

No ... I claim that (in my opinion) you depict a nasty god because that is the only kind of emotion that you reflect from your scriptures. I don't observe any compassion in your statements. It's all about making gays fit the mold of what you think they should be and that to me is a very self-serving type of belief. They are not trying to make you over ... but that is what you are trying to do to them.

The fact that you keep stating that I am not christian, is proof enough to me, that you speak "for" God and not "of" God.
