Where did the church go wrong concerning the gay rights issue? It went wrong when it opened the door to agreeing to civil unions for gays. Gays are not entitled to civil unions, group health benefits like married couples, to visit each other in the hospital like married couples or anything else that married couples do. Their lifestyle is sinful and they are going to hell. We should pray for them but not give an inch on legitimizing their unions. Read what happened in Michigan this past weekend and the post below this one and you will see why it is wrong to give any credence to "gay rights." They want tolerance but give none. The Bible says you reap what you sow. They have sowed intolerance so let them have their harvest!
The Lansing State Journal reported Tuesday November 11, 2008:
A radical gay rights group is claiming responsibility for a protest Sunday at Mount Hope Church in Delta Township.
Protesters who entered the Creyts Road church with worshippers stood up during the service, threw fliers at churchgoers and shouted slogans such as "It's OK to be gay," according to David Williams, communications director at the church. His father, Dave Williams, is the church's longtime pastor. Another group of protesters demonstrated outside the church.
A Lansing group affiliated with a radical gay organization known as Bash Back, formed to protest the Republican and Democratic national conventions earlier this year, put out a call on the Internet on Oct. 7 for activists to come to a "radical queer convergence" in Lansing Nov. 7-9.
According to a report on the group's Web site, protesters inside the church also pulled a fire alarm and unfurled a banner from the church balcony.
Mount Hope Church, affiliated with the Assemblies of God denomination, teaches followers that homosexuality is a sin.
"Mount Hope Church strives to follow Jesus' example of loving the sinner but not the sin," Williams said.
