I went to church with my family tonight and the pastor said something that I think every Christian should hear

  • Pastor: Now, according to a few passages in the bible, homosexuality is a sin.
  • Couple of older males in the audience: Amen!
  • Pastor: Now, wait, I'm not finished.
  • Pastor: You know what else the bible defines as a sin? Divorce.
  • -uncomfortable silence-
  • Pastor: There are countless passages that talk about how divorce is wrong, and that there are consequences to getting a divorce, such as the wife should be stoned.
  • Pastor: Yet, I witnessed a divorce just this morning. And I gotta tell you, it was heartbreaking, but I definitely didn't attempt to throw rocks at the wife, even though she was the one who filed for divorce.
  • Pastor: We choose to overlook the consequences of divorce because time has proven that they're inhumane and cruel.
  • Pastor: The bible doesn't say anything about the consequences of a homosexual lifestyle. Yet, we seem to be spearheading a campaign to ruin the lives of people we don't even know.
  • -the pastor shifts a few notes around-
  • Pastor: The bible states to love thy neighbor. That's it. There are no other rules or restrictions to that passage.
  • Pastor: So, we as a church family have to support equality with a smile on our face. THAT is the true Christian way.

Reblogged from Shameless Secrets
The human person, made in the image and likeness of God, can hardly be adequately described by a reductionist reference to his or her sexual orientation. Every one living on the face of the earth has personal problems and difficulties, but challenges to growth, strengths, talents and gifts as well. Today, the Church provides a badly needed context for the care of the human person when she refuses to consider the person as a “heterosexual” or a “homosexual” and insists that every person has a fundamental Identity: the creature of God, and by grace, his child and heir to eternal life.
— Pope John Paul II
