    And if someone were teaching something that he wrote I would be gone.
    I understand that Bell lost 3,000 members of his church over this book, "Love Wins."

    You need to find a different church.

    Our Methodist "guest pastor" sermon on the radio this past Sunday morning was the parable of the Good Samaritan, and how that was a lesson for us to be kinder and more accepting of the "LBGTQ-plus community". And that's how the guest pastor pronounced it numerous times - kinda slowing down and very clearly enunciating "L B G T Q Plus community". He explained that his 'sexual orientation' gave him greater insight into the scriptures than his colleagues.
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    While speaking at Grace Cathedral—an Episcopal church in San Francisco—he was directly asked about his stance on gay marriage and he offered the following response:

    “I am for marriage. I am for fidelity. I am for love, whether it’s a man and woman, a woman and a woman, a man and a man. I think the ship has sailed and I think the church needs — I think this is the world we are living in and we need to affirm people wherever they are.”

    United Methodist.

    However, perhaps this particular church needs people like me to challenge what they preach!?
