The fact that we are still having to contend with the term 'homosexual lifestyle' says alot about who and what we are up against.
Not to mention the mischief making of conflating abuse with same gender sex as done in the comment by Patrece Charles of the National Parenting support Commission just shows how much ignorance is to be overcome. As if gay men automatically act or operate as misogynistic heterosexual men who go after young ones as soon as they think they are ripe.
To also have such a headline screaming such that gays are welcomed suggests they weren't in the first place as sinners bearing in mind the church is supposed to be opened to all. If one is same sex attracted for example or transgender or non binary one must therefore act the fool and keep it to ourselves as some suggest in order to be legitimized and or accepted?
If they say they want to celebrate 'You' and not your lifestyle then the 'You' cannot be a fake or a shadow of themselves can they? and therefore there is a major contradictory in terms here at work. Want these church groups want then is a shade of the 'You' which includes thoughts, feelings and lifestyle.
What is meant by this repeated argument about 'tolerated?' so outward displays of affections such as holding hands and such are contaminants for passing on homosexuality!
What would Jesus do? I am sure he would not have left out or seek to ostracize the very souls the church is charged to win. Why can't one be gay and Christian as the same time? so many persons I know are struggling knowing they have the holy spirit and at the same time are torn with doctrine versus feelings and church pressure.
Sometimes I wonder if these people think before they speak.
Peace & tolerance
