  •  But. . . (0+ / 0-)

    I just don't want to endorse a movement of people going into churches, or synagogues or mosques and telling the people there that they are wrong.  8 out of 10 times they are wrong.  But I feel that's imposing on their right to worship as they wish without interference.

    Now, I'll argue with them in the public square and in the political arena, and I believe that most congregants to most churches are on the side of common sense and fairness (hence why marriage equality continues its inexorable march forward), but that could change if we start preaching to the religious in the places they worship.

    Facebook is great.  The floor of congress is better.  But inside a church makes me cringe a bit.

    •  but they waited until after the service (6+ / 0-)

      just as anyone else would do when wanting to speak to the pastor on a matter of faith and practice.

      it's not like they stood up in the middle of the service and shouted out a disruption.

      Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.

    •  What They Teach Inside That Particular (0+ / 0-)

      church and others like it, results in the beatings and other horrific abuses of LGBT youth within the church family; and in the expulsion of those same youth from their homes. Many of these same, so called Christian Churches, teach that such treatment of disobedient youth is absolutely Christian and appropriate.  I am a die hard, hard core Christian and there is nothing Christian about this business.
