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.
