Religion just makes no sense to me.
So much hatred and judgement, and it's not just this church or a few churches, or even a handful of crazy fundamentalists.
Just so far from what I was taught as a child in the united church.

It's , just sad.

Video doesn't work, but from the comments so far I have gathered that a Christian called for the death of gays, and Ted Cruz and 2 others walked out. Good for them. Probably like only 0.003% of Christians, 0.002% of atheists, and 10% of Muslims think gays should be executed.

Demonstrating part of the reason that the middle east is frustrated with the west. Making up unfounded zenophobic drivel such as this does nothing to promote any rational discussion/thought between ethnicities.

Fine, i'll rephrase in a more tolerant frame of mind. 1% of Muslims, 2% of atheists, 10% of Jews, and 40% of Christians think gays should die. Therefore, 99% of Muslims, 98% of atheists, 90% of Jews, and 60% of Christians think gays should live.

A half century ago the United Church I went to had a lesbian minister. They later followed up and made it official.

http://www.religioustolerance.org/hom_ucc.htm

a task force on sexuality presented its report In God's Image...Male and Female. It concluded: ..."there is no reason in principle why mature, self-accepting homosexuals, any more than mature, self-accepting heterosexuals, should not be ordained or commissioned.". The General Council called for more study.


Representatives of homosexual groups across Canada formed Affirm, a mutual support group of United Church homosexual members.


"That in and of itself, sexual orientation should not be a factor determining membership in the Order of Ministry of the United Church of Canada"


Things change sometimes, trying to paint the United Church today as being hateful and homophobic is sad, very sad.

There will always be fools who believe the world would always have been at peace without religion and that if Bush never stated that God told him to invade Iraq he wouldn't have. I could rob a bank in the name of Static and I guess you'd be the bad one... wow, that's easy.

Hey at least it's not racist since we all know that Islam is a race.

All real Christians, believe all people have the freewill to choose how they will live their own lives. God gave us that freedom. Does God approve of all our actions? No. All real Christians know Jesus will judge mankind and its not ANY humans place to do so. Any christian who disagrees with me better check the book.
