After donning the trappings and air of sanctimonius religious authority, a group of homosexual activists gathered in Dallas to throw stones at traditional Biblical morality and sexual conduct. Calling themselves the "Bishops and Elders Council", the activists represented a stunning array of heretical beliefs under the guise of welcoming people (specifically other unrepentant homosexuals)into the church. But the first order of business was to stone the "religious right" who is seen as an enemy to their attempts to advance a false gospel. That's according to Michael Adee, a field organizer for More Light Presbyterians.
"Why a Bishops & Elders Council, and why now? The Book of Acts testifies to an "unhindered Gospel." Today, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is being hindered by those referred to as "the Religious Right." It is time for new voices to lift up an unhindered Gospel which includes lesbian, gay, bisexual, same gender loving and transgender persons and their families."How original can you be? The group ripped a page right (or is it left?) out of the Democrat Party platform and just added "our Christian faith" to it.
"Motivated by our Christian faith and to further our nation's founding goals of justice and equality for all, we call upon all people of goodwill to work actively for an end to discrimination against gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender persons by:There is not one single word anywhere in the Word of God which unctions followers of Christ to affirm sin!
Realizing that the relationships of same-gender loving couples are equal in every way to heterosexual couples and are worthy of both the right to civil marriage and the rites of Christian marriage; Reaffirming the rights of gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgender persons to full equality under the law, including adoption rights, employment and housing protections, and the right to openly serve in the U.S. military; Refusing to cooperate with or support political or religious leaders who caricature and condemn the lives of gays and lesbians; Refuting the ex-gay notion that sexual orientation and gender identity can and should be changed."
Lest we be fooled by the stoles, robes and pious religious titles, the majority of this group is made of homosexual activists who work in the religion wing. I took the liberty to identify them since they seem to have such a hard time doing so.
