"Hate has no place in the house of God." - Mark's Journal

"Hate has no place in the house of God."
Show me where Christ said "Love thy fellow man, except for the gay ones." Gay people, too, are made in my God's image. I would never worship a homophobic God. "But they are sinners," I can hear the preachers and politicians say. "They are choosing a life of sin for which they must be punished." My scientist and medical friends have shared with me a reality that so many gay people have confirmed, I now know it in my heart to be true. No one chooses to be gay. Sexual orientation, like skin color, is another feature of our diversity as a human family. Isn't it amazing that we are all made in God's image, and yet there is so much diversity among his people?

Awesome. Now it's a "Jesus loves you" ad banner.

There is Great Evil in the world...and Archbishop Desmond Tutu has been fighting it on all fronts since 1976, and is fighting still!

I knew I liked that man. :-)

I have always liked Desmond Tutu.

A great many "Christians" need to remember that Christ was about love.

As the old joke says...

Q: "How do you know Jesus was Jewish?"

A: He went into his father's business, lived at home until he was 30, and his mother thought he was god.
