"Professing themselves to be wise, the become fools," says St. Paul. Here are completely grown adult still playing dress up games -- and in church no less. I assume that the message of Jesus' vicarious death on the cross for the sins of the world and the salvation of believers was completely missing from the "service." Look for more losses to TEC is this is how they come to God's house to worship the Lord when someone dies. Reading this it is certainly obvious why any Bible believing person or congregation would leave TEC in the dust as they run for the nearest door.

Thank you Jose for your nerve when people like us were so afraid of being ourselves we killed our selves instead. LGBT people across the planet are in debt to your memory.BTW Ever seen those hats and fashion women wear on Sunday? We DQs all get some of our best drag fashion tips from them.

This comes as no suprise with you butch.
Hell you are confused about your own gender.
Honor the thing if you must but don't bring a drag queen into a church to celebrate the perversion.

Luke 15:1-10

All the tax collectors and sinners were coming near to listen to Jesus. And the Pharisees and the scribes were grumbling and saying, "This fellow welcomes sinners and eats with them."

So he told them this parable: "Which one of you, having a hundred sheep and losing one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the one that is lost until he finds it? When he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders and rejoices. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them,`Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.' Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.

"Or what woman having ten silver coins, if she loses one of them, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it? When she has found it, she calls together her friends and neighbors, saying,`Rejoice with me, for I have found the coin that I had lost.' Just so, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents."

Try this one Joe. YOU ARE THE COIN AND GOD IS LOOKING FOR YOU. She lights the candle which is JESUS to find you. Everyone is worth finding.

Come as you are...The Episcopal Church welcomes you.

Everyone is worth finding but you are over looking something.

You are always welcome in the House of the Lord but as I have told you--repent your sins.
