Haggard was a super-televangelist who brought up gay marriage and homosexuality as a sin constantly, and that's why he's being considered the hypocrite he is. The Bible says a lot of stuff; it mentions being gay maybe twice... and even then, ambiguously.
Coppermine wrote:No one says anyone should be perfect, but I would be far more forgiving of Haggard if perhaps he bucked the trend and was a little more tolerant. There are many churches that make people feel welcome, regardless of their sexual orientation.
If you want to have a decent conversation about this, I'm open to it, but don't knock every Christian church or big church because one guy messed up big time. A little less generalization would be nice.Coppermine wrote:I guess that's how you pack 'em into your megachurch... fire, brimstone and good, old fashioned gay bashing.
