    That's all? She didn't cause your crops to fail? She didn't turn your cow's milk sour? She didn't send a Scottish King and his wife on a mass murder spree?

    When I practiced Wicca, I once sort of cast a spell that made my obnoxious boss impotent, although my intention was just to get him to leave me alone .

    He thought the Rogaine caused it.

    Couldn't you leave that up to a.) The gays in the church and/or b.) The individual church community?

    If the church is following the Bible like they should then it's not up to a vote.

    The Scriptures are clear. What you want is for a church to deny doctrine and the Bible to accept an agenda and a lifestyle that is a sin. If a church looks the other way at sin then it stops being a church in the Biblical sense.

    Again your advocating forcing people to accept something they don't want to.

    Of course. I would never want anybody from the outside involved (if you mean government).

    No, they wouldn't have to change ideology. The preacher would still preach the same ideology against homosexuality. If the homosexual didn't like it, they could leave and go to a church of a more liberal leaning (or don't go to one at all). Same thing goes for somebody who has gotten a divorce, got re-married, is living with somebody who is not their spouse, is gambling, is drinking (and the denomination is against drinking, yes it exists), a Catholic taking birth control, etc. The person can sit in the pews and go to Sunday School. If they don't like what they're hearing, then they can leave. Otherwise, they can get over it. Does that sound like less of a threat yet?

    Oh, and all Gen suggested was that it be between the church and the congregant. That's the total opposite of having people force them to do anything.
