Why do churches get so worked up over gays?
Why is this certain sin treated like its worse than all the others? I love Christian values but I have never understood how someone can go get blasted drunk then scream about being gay being a sin. They are both sins as outlined in the bible. Don't use scripture to vilify others when you will ignore the parts of the scripture that vilify you.

Gays and drunks are welcome in church. I don’t want the drunk guy to be a preacher either.

It is probably because they believe it is the only sin that they see as being put on a pedestal as good, wholesome, and worthy of promoting at every turn through movie, entertainment, and all other aspects of everyday life.

Show me where alcohol is sinful in the Bible. There’s a LOT of very explicit condemnations of homosexuality, but there’s nothing about alcohol anywhere near that explicit or direct.

if it ever received a viable answer you probably wouldn't see it asked so much

Are you saying alcoholism and homosexuality are the same?

Christians see it as a sin. And it’s a sin that is trying to be normalized without asking for forgiveness/repentance. Not an exactly good example (yes Christianity is full of hypocrisy) but it would be as if we made thievery normal and unpunished.

Partaking in alcohol in moderation is not a sin but indulging to excess would be considered one.

I am saying homosexuality is a sin just like lots of other things are so why are those things just forgotten about so much?

The loudest ones about it usually have the most vivid images of it when they’re denouncing it.

Most gays are fine with me.

The flaming ones and the militant political ones, not so much.

Of the two gays and three lesbians I am pretty close to, 80% are conservative to very conservative. One of them was on the Trump Train seven months before I joined.

This is a good answer and I think it makes a lot of sense.

Exactly.


Just don't start teaching everyone that what the gays and drunks do is OK, normal, and to be admired or emulated.

ALL are welcome at my church, but the issue is not homosexuality per se. It is that a large number of homosexuals have infiltrated church clergy and are preaching that homosexual acts are fine in the eyes of God.

That is a lie. Some very good people are being led astray by clergy who have a wordly agenda, not a Godly one.

The homosexual lobby CANNOT STAND to have their sin called a sin. In fact, they don't just want it tolerated. They want their sin promoted, celebrated and glorified. I AM NOT on board with that.
