    Good for him! Of any group of ppl who should understand bigotry and hatred  how can they be so prejudiced, hateful and mean to a minority striving for equality hmmm.  Why fight for equal rights if they are going to turn around and do the same thing to someone else?  All prejudice is either wrong  or it is right so Jim Crow is OK if only directed at gays I say NO way Jim Crow for Gays then Jim Crow for all minorities!

       I have said before and I say again, since this message is just not being understood……The Word of God is not a book about equal rights. This is not an issue about prejudice, hatred or equality.

      This is the reaction of a people that have taken a stand that they will not follow a Pastor, even one they love, against the Word of God. Plain and simple. These are people that have given their lives to Christ and want to inherit the promises of God and the kingdom. They believe, as do I, that they cannot do this if they remain in fellowship with those that defiantly and willfully live contrary to God’s word and God’s will.

        Using your logic we would still be in chains or under Jim Crow.  You are making the same arguments of the other side.  Maybe the white folk should have stuck to their principles.

        And it absolutely is about hatred, prejudice and equality…  How else do you explain the many, many, many bible laws that you choose to ignore?..  There are many laws dealing with women, slavery, eating habits, punishment, etc., that you willfully do not follow.  You wouldn’t even consider following. So why is this one SO bad that you can’t even let the State, not you, not your church, but the STATE, recognize these peoples relationship. There is none, other than you just don’t like what they are doing.

    I suppose we will see…..If God is for the decision this Pastor has made to stray away and lead away the people from God’s word, then God will preserve this church before it is closed.

    If it falls, I guess then maybe he will be able to face the truth.

    the bible does NOT support homosexuality:

    (Romans 1:24-28) . . .Therefore God, in keeping with the desires of their hearts, gave them up to uncleanness, that their bodies might be dishonored among them, 25 even those who exchanged the truth of God for the lie and venerated and rendered sacred service to the creation rather than the One who created, who is blessed forever. Amen. 26 That is why God gave them up to disgraceful sexual appetites, for both their females changed the natural use of themselves into one contrary to nature; 27 and likewise even the males left the natural use of the female and became violently inflamed in their lust toward one another, males with males, working what is obscene and receiving in themselves the full recompense, which was due for their error. 28 And just as they did not approve of holding God in accurate knowledge, God gave them up to a disapproved mental state, to do the things not fitting,
