Yeah, that's a refreshing message coming from a clergyman. It would be nice to hear more from many others like him in that "fire and brimstone" style delivery.
But what this really blatantly shows is that people create their own personal gods who will conform to and stand for everything they personally believe. The god of the bible says to stone homosexuals? Not my loving god!
These church goers may learn to not be hypocrites, but they sure are being intellectually dishonest with themselves. I wish they could realize that. Anyway, if a church is preaching and promoting tolerance to its sheep, I guess I can't complain.
I have to admit, as much as I dislike what Joliet Jake in the Blues Brothers referred to as Jive Assed Preachers, this guy makes a salient point I can't disagree with. At least his religion didn't completely strip him of his humanity.
I agree with your statement, Joan. Still, to see at least ONE of the Old Guard come out and do a fairly major mea culpa ... well, it's not something I expect to see every day!
Social change does not come from those who oppress or dominate or benefit from the oppression. Social change comes from those who refuse to submit to the definitions constructed by oppressors. It comes when the oppressed stand with pride and dignity and claim to be who they are, not who others "defined" them.
I'll pass on his concluding line, but except for that it was pretty amazing. Too bad the hypocrisy doesn't become visible to more religionists!
Did you ever wonder when the day would come that a bible-thumper would call his own congregation and organization on their hypocrisy regarding gays and Lesbians? Thought that would be a rare day in May, didn't you?Well, it's late July ... and that day may have arrived! Check THIS out:
Pope Francis' approval ratings dropping. Pink News speculates it has to do with the pope's increasingly visible homophobia, having backed down from his "who am I to judge" stance.
It must suck to think that backing down from his early quick PR campaign leads to loss of credibility.
Louisiana's chief asshole governor, Bobby Jindahl, spent $371,548.63 of his state's taxpayer dollars to fight marriage equality, while cutting education and other benefits in his state. Jindahl is a pathetic piece of crocodahl dung. Not that I would use an ad hominem.

Kind of a treat. I guess we could look at candles as emblematic of the fires of hell.
