In Sweetwater Tennessee, still waters run deep.... and under the water is some toxic mud....
"In choosing to name a group of people such as the Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT), you are choosing to group together a group of people who are not of the same race, but have made a personal and moral life style choice. Other groups who make a personal life style choice are drug user and sellers, gang members, prostitutes, cults and murderers"
Lovely place.... just lovely.
British council rules that Christian couple should not adopt a child to turn him straight. Council Defends Ban on Christian Couple Fostering, Says Husband Vowed to 'Turn' Gay Child http://www.care2.com/causes/civil-rights/blog/council-defends-banni... Britain's Derby Council has defended banning a self-avowed devout Christian couple from providing further foster care to children because of the couple's anti-gay views, with a member of the council revealing in a BBC interview that the husband had said he would try and "turn" a gay child.
I'll take your icky sticky and raise you a disappointing gay best friend. I was always a lousy gay best friend. I just wanted to go hiking and dig in the yard.

I see this a little differently. I see the message here as intertwined with the Catholic doctrine of suffering. (Which has a HUGE class bias, but that's another discussion!!). So, I think the point here is that the homosexual, as created by God, is to be admired more for his/her special burden of suffering. This is not humanism, it might be humanitarian, and it is quasi liberal. At least, the sermon is not rejecting or condeming. Compared to a reactionary doctrine of sin and condemnation and assersation of power (like right wing Opus Dei), this is liberal. This is closer to the compassion and charity branch of theoloty, like the left wing Catholic Workers. But I don't have to like it. As a non-theist, I too find it duplicitous, but not contradictory within the logic of faith in suffering. I think we can all see here a reason why many of us strayed from the faith to a more naturalist and Epicurean philosophy of life. -- Gary
