    God destroyed the cities Sodom & Gomorow because the man there were gays.
    So also fire will fall from heaven this gener

      Now there, Angel, you are wrong. Nowhere in Scripture does it say that the men os Sodom were “gay”. on the contrary, it is clearly stated elsewhere in Scripture that the sin of Sodom was indolence and gluttony. The specific story of Sodom as told in Genesis suggests that the immediate trigger for God’s anger was the failure of hospitality. So you could argue that the churches which fail to show hospitatlity to all, including gay and lesbian Christians, are the ones guilty of the real sin of Sodom.

      But thanks for the contribution, all the same.

    I woke up this morning to fantastic news: “L.A. diocese elects first lesbian bishop” right on the front page of the L.A. Times! Finally a reason to be proud that I live in Los Angeles. Welcome to L.A., Bishop Glasspool!

      Great news for all of us, Kitt, even better for you. Now we just wait for this to be so routine, that such announcements will be routine. How long to the first lesbian pope?
