By "God in heaven" I think you mean bigoted homophobes here on earth. Stop blaming your hatred on nonexistent beings.

The Church of Sweden a so-called Christian Church condoning behavior that's against the Bible!

What's next? Will they allow women to go to church without hats or allow people to wear mixed fabrics?!

I don't know.Maybe you should go on one of those Jehovahs Witnesses websites and ask them.It'll still be the same in Sweden as everyother country,more women,gay or straight,wanting to get married,than gay or straight men.

I really like Sweden and Swedish people have always been kind to me. However, anyone that knows Sweden at all well will agree that Swedes wear a lot of coats and many layers of clothing- even when it isn't cold.

So gender mistakes are bound to happen, as in all things, just be happy if you end up with someone who is kind.
