During his response on the matter, he stated, "nowhere in the Bible does it prohibit a loving, homosexual, and committed relationship". He has also claimed to have been called by God to be an advocate for all gay, lesbian, transgendered, and bisexual people. He said that we are to love and care for everyone and stop hurting the children of God.
Now, I'm no pastor but I love research, so I took it upon myself to include some Bible verses on the issue of same sex unions and sexuality:
- Leviticus 18:22- man on man sex is detestable.
- Romans 1:26, 27- sex with the same gender is a shameful lust and same sex relations are unnatural.
- 1 Corinthians 6:9- men that have sex with men, will not inherit the Kingdom of Heaven.
- Genesis 2:24 and Ephesians 5:23-33- speak of the traditional marriage.
What is your take on the situation? Should the Reverend be commended or suspended? Please remember that everyone has a right to their own opinion and belief. So play nice.
