Great news, Gracie? Six local churches cutting a valuable program for boys and thumbing their nose at the teachings of Jesus in the process, all because they are having a snit fit that the national organization no longer wants to discriminate against gay youth and you imagine that a good thing? Why?

It is amazing to me how hypocritical the clergy are. They marry divorced people that Jesus taught was adultery, but condemn gay marriage. Many preachers are divorced and remarried adulterers themselves and are not qualifies to be leaders themselves. No wonder so many Christians are seeing the hypocrisy of the institutional religious system, and are leaving these religious themed businesses.

I am a Christian, and homosexuality is an abomination to God, but so is a religious institution that is full of adultery among it's leaders. How many pastors ar divorced, remarried, or having affairs, while condemning homosexuality. You guys think God is not going to deal with you just as He will deal with the sodomites?

That was really considerate of the churches to drop out of the Boy Scouts the way they did. I think they all deserve a big hand for this one act of decency!

These innocent children don't need to hear that hellfire and brimstone cr@p these homophobic antisemitic hate filled churches that falsely call themselves Christian try to ram down everyone's throats!

This thread got hijacked by sodomites and their evil supporters. However, God's Word says that all homosexuals will have their part in the lake of fire.
Any most of the pulpit pimping preachers will be right there with 'em.
The amount of homosexuals INSIDE of the religious institution is proof that God has given this harlot religious system over to a reprobate mind. That is why His true followers are leaving it.

You could do with a little additional, more accurate, information.

......
There isn't a single resident of Sodom here.

And you might want to actually READ that Bible on your nightstand, as there is no mention that all people God created with only the attraction to the same gender - gay people - will burn for that God-given trait.

If your demented god does such things, you might want to find another. The Christian God, for one.

How exactly is a natural, harmless, and God-given trait an "abomination?"

And please list all the scriptures that specifically mention the people that can only be attracted to the same gender. I've read the Bible many many times, and have never seen such a scripture.

Why do you believe that gay folks cannot be called to service by Christ? Have you even READ Jesus' words?

Why is it that if gays aren't invited they try to ruin it for everyone? Pretty sick stuff. The should start their own club.

First, this article was posted on the Gay/Lesbian Forum in addition to wherever you found it. It's the way TOPIX works, you've started off with an error.

Your second error is in your use of the term "sodomites". That's a definition that derives from a false tradition in the early Middle Ages. Let's begin to correct this second error by looking at how the Jewish scholars discuss their story. It IS their story and their storybook, after all.

http://jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/13827-...

http://jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/10122-...

Your third error is the tradition reference to the compilation of the Hebrew and Greek anthologies as "God's Word". The error is in two parts, and based upon another false tradition, and some just plain ignorance of the historical facts.

The Hebrew anthology of writings, commonly referred to as "the Tanakh" is divided into three sub collections: The Law, The Prophets, and The Writings, each of which have different weight of authority to them. Even within The Law and the Prophets not everything is of divine utterence, and as such cannot properly called "the Word of God". Like the word "bible" itself, it is merely a traditional colloquial reference that in the minds of the uneducated has taken on a blasphemous level of significance ... blasphemous to the point of idolatry.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanakh

You would do well to recall that the Hebrew writings were compiled and declared canon by the Rabbis; i.e. Pharisees. It was THEIR collection of favorite writings. Other sects of Judaism had others. Recall, too, that we have been counseled to "beware the leaven of the Pharisees". Perhaps you recall the passage.

For a very informative and entertaining discussion of Phariseeism and how it relates to the gospels, give this a listen. I doubt you'll be disappointed.

why do you all have to bring religion into it? if the churches don't want them there anymore then that's THEIR business.

if you don't MIND that the boyscouts are now faggothappy then go right ahead and give 'em all the $$$ you want to - until the white house sh¡tskin takes it away from you. and if you hope the organization now dies a painful death, well you're alright too.

if things don't go their way and they lose the majority of their support then hopefully they'll realize they made a bad business decision and reconsider their stupidity.

Why do the hypocrite christians send out the message that discriminating against other people is okay and acceptable, and at the same time say that "ALL are welcome" into the church? I believe in God, and know that God loves all of us equally. It's the hypocrite "christians" that I don't like.

I think it's a little late for the so called true Christians to be shocked by the very church they created and defiled under laws they bent into pretzels for their own perversions. All I hear now is,'There's queers and sinners in my church, I'm leaving!' Who the Hell do you people think you are? Centuries have passed and you did nothing to stop the adultery, or sex outside of marriage,(because that was straight sins, they're somehow lesser than homosexual sins). No churches left the Boy Scouts en masse because heterosexual group members were caught committing adultery or beating their wives, or because they molested children (sometimes their own). So why would God even bother with a religion that has nothing to do with God? This is your beast. You gave birth to it, you people fed it your fears and endless absolutions, you raised it up to be just like you and now your surprised it's so selfish and untrustworthy because it demands autonomy. Give me a break people.

The church is a beautiful bride until she stands up and shows you the truth of what you've made her become then she's called an ungrateful whore for opening your eyes. Sound familiar?

Perhaps they want to be involved in raising a generation that doesn't think like you.
