    Pro-Homosexual Denominations Lose Numbers

    The Episcopal Church has been at the forefront of baptizing active homosexual lifestyle as God-blessed.
    Since 1960, that denomination has decreased in membership by 48%.

    The United Methodist Church has been roiled by those adamant on establishing homosexual lifestyles as Christian legitimate.
    In the fight for one side or another that denomination has decreased in membership by 25%.

    The Presbyterian Church (USA) has likewise been embroiled in the tussle. That denomination has decreased in membership by 44%.

    The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) has also been riddled with in-house fighting over homosexual lifestyles as anti-God or pro-God. In the last 40 years, that denomination has lost 40% of its original membership.

    The Judgment of God (Rom 1.18-32)

    Paul now begins into the main thrust of his letter. He begins by suggesting that some among them have taken up ungodliness and wickedness for which there will be wrath from God .

    These people have taken God's invisible image and made him into an idol. Paul draws heavily here from the Jewish book Wisdom of Solomon--an apocraphal edition in the Catholic Canon.

    He condemns homosexuality and warns that such behavior will result in a depraved body and mind and says that people who do such things (including murder and wickedness) are worthy of death.

    The price of selling out. This is a price that is always exacted from those who don't have the guts to stick to their principles. Too bad for them.

    I think Jesus had a much bigger message than one of bigotry. Perhaps you should read the Bible.

    Bother someone else gnat, I do read the Bible. The PRINCIPLES we are referring to here are not the PRINCIPLES of the individuals. It is the individuals who are departing the teaching and message. Now go stand in the corner.

    Interesting wording. It says that God is mad at them for losing membership.

    I think it has more to do with people getting tired of all the bullshit that comes along with organized religion.
