yes but God says turn away from sin and he states a few times in the word that homosexuality is a sin…just saying.

 No He doesn’t (False Blackbear). Never once does he mention homosexuality in a normal, loving setting; always in the context of rape and/or prostitution, making the context always a condemnation of the aforementioned…just saying. (See what I mean below)

The often vicious and violent anxiety about masculinity is one reason that the ways in which homosexuality is stigmatized in our culture look nothing like the ways we treat many other things Scripture calls vices. Kids on the playground taunt each other for being gay, even disparaging other kids’ backpacks or pencil cases as “so gay.” People get beaten up or harassed on the street for their real or perceived homosexuality. Parents reject their children for coming out—I suspect most gay people know at least a few friends who were rejected in the most hurtful and vicious ways. (If we care about family breakup, we need to care about families broken by the actions of homophobic parents, as well as those broken by divorce.) This isn’t how we treat the acts we really consider sinful. It’s how we treat scapegoats.

"Ex-Straight Ministries"

Or so I’d have it called! This summer, me and my youth pastor are starting up a group to support and love on other LGBTQ students!

I don’t imagine that it will be big, 3 or 4 students (at most) at first. But I definitely see that it’ll make a difference =)

YIC, Ian

*Called “Ex-Straight” by me b/c said LGBTQ persons are casting off their heterosexual/coming out of the closet(at least to the group).
