"Makes me wish there were a heaven so he could go there one day."

My heaven would be filled with 18 year old boys with 36 year-old minds. Soccer shorts would be mandatory.

well said. if more religious figures acted in this manner then maybe religion wouldn`t be such a despised entity in today`s younger generations.

It`s not often you find a real christian. One who is more interested in looking after the sins within than judging the sins without.

Makes me wish there were a heaven so he could go there one day.

"Not every pastor is a hate-monger". This guy, then, is the exception to the rule, that Christian pastors are hate-mongers.....

Lol, no point in actually putting an opinion on this thread !!

Some denominations are refreshingly progressive on GLBT issues. There`s an art series I find particularly inspiring called the "Gay Passion of Christ". It retells the Jesus story from a modern gay perspective, as if all of it happened in our own time and place. A sample:



The whole series can be found
here, there`s explanations for each piece and even devotional meditations included for those so inclined. The times they are a changin` :-)

I like when he said "why are you so angry that you have to setup conference calls?" Whenever I get mad I`m 3-way calling everybody!

But yeah, what he said.

I think Jesus taught us better in John 7:53-8:11

PAY ATTENTION other Christians. this IS what Jesus taught. THIS RIGHT HERE.

It is not up to us to judge others, that is God`s job.

It is up to us as Christians to LOVE all people, including those we do not agree with and that means keeping out mouths shut about the choices/life style/gender choice they make.

ya know i don`t remember the golden rule saying...

"do unto others as you would have them do unto you, unless they don`t believe the same things you do"

some people of "faith" need to wake up, and this guy needs to be the one to set the alarm!

Can I get an amen!
But why do black preachers talk like that?
It`s stylish and grabs attention,
but-ah it`s kind of funny-ah to lisketen-ah to-ah.

Damn, he`s an annoying public speaker! He`s right to bang on about the seperation of church and state and it`s surprising to hear a cleric doing so, but he`s more annoying as a public speaker than someone inhaling helium and squeaking their speech while being mostly drowned out by insane dubstep.

"majoring in what Jesus minored in" is a catchy way of saying that too many Christians attach too much importance to things Jesus didn`t attach much importance to. Or maybe none - as he says, there`s nothing about homosexuality attributed to Jesus in the Christian bible.
