I agree. He should move to a denomination that treats LGBT people equally.

In a civilized world, he would have been convicted for being a christian, and gays would have legal marriage everywhere.

How sad. A fathers love for his son isn't negotiable even by "Christian" standards.

The bible doesn't say that God LOVES everyone. In fact, it says the opposite. Did you ever actually READ he bible ?

The bible has many accounts of God slaughtering innocents. According the bible he seems to do that quite frequently.

I can point out in the bible where it says God HATES many different peoples, and where He slaughters innocents.

Can you point out anywhere in the bible where it says "GOD LOVES EVERYONE" ? I think NOT !

I suppose you judge masculinity by the clothes men wear as well. All Levi's isn't dressing by the way, it's stuck in a rut with no way out.

This is an example of what a real father is like. Willing to loose his "job" over the love of his children and willing to call out organized religion on its BS.

If it was stylish in 1849, there's no reason it can't be considered stylish today.

Again, evidence of a multiplicity of authors with varying agendas.

Those words exactly? No. But there are a considerable number of others that indicate such.

No, there aren't.

The bible specifically states that God HATES many groups of people. NOWHERE does the bible say that God loves all the people, and groups of people, He created.

Now, I am not saying that He doesn't love each and every person He created. I'm only saying that the bible does not say that.

Yeshua's message contradicts such earlier and later accounts.
