THE QUEERING OF AMERICA’S CHURCHES
June 14, 2011
“Satan is an artist. He paints sin in rainbow colors.” – Billboard in front of a local church where I live in Big Spring, Texas
Christians believe the King James Bible is the word of God. We (Christians) are to live our lives under His Commandments (not requests) or surrender our souls to eternal damnation. Growing numbers of Americans simply slough that off as something out dated or hocus pocus.
Recent headlines proclaimed:
“The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) on Tuesday voted to allow the ordination of openly gay and lesbian ministers. The church put the vote to its 173 presbyteries, or governing bodies, nationwide.
“On Tuesday, the Twin Citites Area presbytery, which covers Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, became the 87th presbytery — and the deciding vote — to approve an amendment that will remove the constitutional requirement that all ministers, elders and deacons live in “fidelity within the covenant of marriage between a man and a woman or chastity in singleness.”
