PUH-LEEZE lay off the nonsensical "phobic" tag. Classic liberal tactic: If you don't approve of something, you must be afraid of it, enough so in fact to warrant a mental health kind of label. Here's reality: There's absolutely nothing wrong with disapproving of homosexual behavior. Even if you take a purely secular view and ignore the moral aspects, it's quite possibly the most destructive behavior on the planet. It's that behavior that is worthy of a mental health label, not disapproval thereof.
As for this pastor, if he's guilty, he's a hypocrite, but also remember that Christians don't claim to be perfect. Just forgiven. If he did it, he needs help and I hope he gets it. If he was set up, I hope his name is cleared.
Excellent post and so right on.
If he was set up, I hope his name is cleared.
If he did it, he knew very well what he was doing, and he needs to confess it and repent...not claim to be "pastoring". The "help" he needs can only come after that.
