Yes.....that's true! If it wasn't for Christ, we'd all be headed for the
same place. As I said, sin is sin and we're ALL guilty! I've tried to
make this point before, and maybe I simply haven't worded it correctly,
so I'll try one more time.

The problem with ANYONE in the pulpit, or ANY so-called Christian leader
or denomination that approves of homosexuality in ANY form is that it is
an approval of sin! And, that is my complaint and WELL founded in
Scripture. It has NOTHING to do with anything but condoning people
living in sin! I have the SAME reaction to those in Christianity who
have molested children, for example. Just so no one thinks I'm picking
on queers....I'm not.
