There's a gay couple at your church!?
Dean was talking to a guy who leads worship at a large local church. Somehow they got on the subject of gay people. The guy told Dean that his church will not allow a known gay couple to ATTEND church there. Dean was of course shocked. (I guess if you're in the closet you can go there?)The scary thing is this guy could be talkin' out his butt and not really know how his church handles stuff like that. I really hope that is the case. It did get me thinking; how many churches would do the same? Why would they think that is OK? What would they hope to accomplish by doing that? Make sure their "Christians" aren't corrupted by the big bad gay couple? If we are truly lovers and followers of Christ, we can't act that way cuz' we know Jesus wouldn't. Think about it, would Jesus throw that couple out for fear they would corrupt others? or would He shine, love and die for them? Love is hard. Love takes work, all day, everyday, die, die, die to everything we are uncomfortable "dealing" with, People we don't understand. The words of the poet (yet very flawed & nasty sinner) Kidd Rock, ring in my head "Get in the pit and try to love someone!" Sin is sin. Kick out the porn addicted, the adulterers and the liers and the prideful if you are gonna kick out the gay couple!
