Gay Welcoming Churches Are Humoring Churches

February 14, 2011

It frustrates me so very much when I hear a minister, whether he/she believes homosexuality to be a sin or not, say “you are welcome in our church”. What a naive statement! Everyone is welcome in a Christian Church, for that is the teaching of Jesus. What these ministers are overlooking is the fact that gays are not CELEBRATED for who we are and the love we share for our own gender. That is evident in their refusal to marry us. This is saying to gays ‘you’re love is not to be celebrated’. I suppose if mainline Churches were to truly celebrate gays; truly believe we are spiritual equals in Christ, many in their congregations would leave. Is this religious debate about homosexuality a moral debate or is it financial? Church, be careful that morality is not a smoke screen.
