  • Whether one's religion believes homosexuality is a "sin" or not, one should always support your fellow man. To fail to discourage bullying for ANY reason is a tacitly implied approval of that abuse.

    Whatever happened to "live and let live"? Instead, we're devolving back into a polarized, "OMG, it's *different than me!* KILL IT WITH FIRE!" caveman mentality.

    Sad. Sad. Sad.

    No child should be so beaten down by his/her peers, teachers, family, community, etc. that *suicide* becomes a viable solution. For *any* reason.

  • I hate organized religion and it's stance on homosexuals. I cannot comprehend how they justify this.

  • The Bible says being homosexual is an abomination, it is in the same category as adultery & fornication, etc. It is not our place to judge others, we make our own choices & mistakes, we alone are responsible for our mistakes. I doubt very seriously that any one of us is worthy of casting the 1st stone, this pastor is way out of his league...

  • I have to agree with agentwanda. The organized religion I belong to doesn't have this kind of speech in the church, there is no political sermons, and I belong to a church that has members of many racial groups. We also have a "Sunday Switch" where we go to the Synagogue, the Temple, or other Baptist church and then they visit ours. There is a religious tolerance in the south that many don't understand and we did it by choice and with enthusiasm. The preacher in this case, isn't representing religion (though he will tell you otherwise). He is pushing a personal agenda and cloaking it as religion. That is the larger shame. But, some religions are protected and stood up for and others aren't.

  • So, I am totally for gay rights - but am impressed with people that are against it from a religious standpoint but state loud and proud: as a right or lifestyle I will not condemn it.
