Homosexuality and the Church


Seven years ago, at my home Lutheran Church, they held a 6 week discussion on Homosexuality and the Bible. The Northeast Lutheran Synod had prepared pages on what they had been debating; pro & con and wanted to know how people in the congregation believed. As a Christian lesbian I had to go and found that there were 2 other gay men in a group of 50 people who attended. After 6 weeks, those who believed homosexuality to be natural and, therefore, sinless (about 10) and those who believed homosexuality to be unnatural and, therefore, a sin (the majority) changed not in their beliefs. One man, a retired Lutheran minister, who was quite adamant on his belief that homosexuality is an abominable sin, was asked by our pro-gay minister, “If the Synod decides to change it’s doctrine on this issue, how will you feel?” To this the retired minister replied, “I would feel that the Church has betrayed me.” Welcome to our world Reverand, for the Church has betrayed gays since day one with their erroneous misinterpretation, mistranslation and ignorance of the Bible. The discussion on this issue goes on within our Synod and progress is slow. They have been debating since 1989 and still cannot unanimously agree, one way or the other. Indecision won’t help anyone. Order my book “Is God A Gay Basher?” and travel with me on my journey as a Christian gay who, like many others, had to climb this mountain without human help. I found the truth and have lived and loved as a lesbian. There is no sin in same gender love.
