Cal Thomas has some very cogent remarks about the recent US Episcopal Church refusing to disavow ordination of openly, practicing homosexual bishops.
Read the article, then let me know what you think. Biblically, we’re commanded to love everyone, but we’re also commanded to repent of our sin (including practicing homosexuality).
Homosexuality is one of the sins that is clearly identified as sin. The old addage, “Hate the sin, love the sinner,” applies.

It could prove important to reconsider the position of the (independent Christian) Church on the topic of homosexuality. I’m in no way suggesting we throw out our beliefs as they stand; I’m saying we should demand a careful exegesis of critical scriptures. Additionally, Jesus says nothing about same-sex behavior, the Jewish prophets are silent about homosexuality, and only six or seven of the Bible’s one million verses refer to same-sex behavior in any way — and none of these verses refer to homosexual orientation as it’s understood today. Just some thoughts.
Just One Sinner
You’re right, Stacey, the Bible is silent on the topic of sexual orientation. It speaks volumes about sexual action, however.
