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.
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.
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming ‘Woohoo! What a ride!’
You’re going to come across people in your life who say all the right words at all the right times. But in the end, it’s always their actions you should judge them by. It’s actions, not words, that matter.
