    I am all for it. We are told by various religions, that god created us in his image. There is no proof that god did not create people gay. We are also taught that god accepts everyone, period. As long as you believe in him and follow his rules. It's time church's take the lead and start putting an end to discrimination, period. In our worst times, one of the first people we turn to is religious leaders.

    I think it is a great idea. I further think that all religions and groups, not necessarily people although that would be wonderful if everyone could just except everyone else for who they are, but the organizations I believe should welcome people's choices such as being bisexual or gay.

    No one should be judged .. let's leave that up to God .. As a friend used to say, " Do you sit at the the right hand of God"? Neither to I

    Should we take a survey of who enters the church? Absolutely not, we should welcome all people. We should teach from the Bible and we should not hide or hold back any scripture, we should present all scripture as it is written. We may give our interpretation of scripture and we may counsel those who inquire about their or our interpretation, but we must be considerate of others. We were not always so perfect ourselves (just joking here)
    I am a heterosexual, but I can love men deeply and without the need for intimacy, but for those who are unable to surpress those desires, I would offer my love, as a fellow child of God, but I may not be able to understand or accept their affection as unsinful, not that I am any less prone to sin.
    The Bible we have spells out homosexuality, adultery, gluttony, theft, etc. as sin and to recognize any sin as not sinful, one might as well change the Bible to suit themselves. But in all things charity or love, as in compassion and tolerence.

    I think its about time they do so. condemnation is never supposed to be part of a religion. people preach about how God is good and forgiving and we should all love one another. if you would let an ex-con re-enter the society and the community to "forgive" him, how can you bar out gays simply because of their sexual orientation? they did no crimes against humanity.

    Gay people are also people. I do not see any reason for this question to even be subjected to discussion.

    I have friends gay-couple that are also devoted believers, regardless what is written in Leviticus 20:13 and other pages.

    Don't know if they ignore the scriptures or just don't care.

    They've told me that if a thief and a wh0re (pardon my french) are allowed to sit in the church and pray - so shall they.

    Go figure.

    It's about time.

    How can I teach my children the Golden Rule and tolerance
    if the church cannot?

    Faith in people and goodness trumps church, in our family.
