Please don’t call these buildings “Christian churches,” they are as far from Christian as is possible to be....

Well, Episcopal is barely Christian and Unitarian is definitely not, so much for that article.

Says who? You?

Well ... Unitarian probably don't claim it ... But the Episcopalians certainly do. Likewise the Presbyterians and Methodists. Good Protestants one and all.

Ringing their bells for faggotry.

Isn't it grand?

I grew up in the Episcopal Church- it WAS Christian. I loved my church and it has broken my heart to no longer have a home there.

I know what’s happened to it...but this is beyond belief.

Sheer satanic evil.

If there’s ever been a day in which America embraced evil, it is today.

Here’s the link

The cathedral scheduled a prayer service for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender families Wednesday at 7 p.m. to celebrate the ruling.

In a statement, the cathedral’s dean, the Rev. Gary Hall, says the church is ringing its bells “to celebrate the extension of federal marriage equality to all the same-sex couples modeling God’s love in lifelong covenants.”

Hall says the ruling should serve as a call for Christians to embrace religious marriage equality.

The men of Sodom had quite a celebration at Lot’s front door, too, as I recall from the Book of Genesis. Then God celebrated their celebration in his own special way.

Now comes the forcing of Christian Churches to perform Gay “marriage”. But not for Muslim mosques.

You can always find a home with the Catholics, or the conservative Lutherans (Missouri, or Wisconsin, Synods). Many have gone before you.

And I have a hard time believing Methodist or Presbyterian churchs were ringing in celebration.

I wonder how many normally ring their bells at noon and didn’t mean to be making a statement.

How about “same-family” couples? Brothers and sisters who love each other should be able to get married, too. They don’t have to have sex, just get married for the bennies and save on the rent.

My God, the these nitwit Episcopalians!

Yep. The Episcopal “church” elevated a homesexual activist to play “bishop”. He was affiliated with group called Concord Outright which was an organization that would match older homosexuals with boys for “mentoring”.
