I completely understand your frustration. This forum is not the place to come to vent anger towards a group of people. Talk to your Bishop and go through the proper channels to address your concerns. Many of us who are on this forum and writing and conversing in English, are doing so, because we came from countries that did not provide freedoms to their people. As I believe homosexuality is morally wrong, being angry and highlighting the lack of freedoms for homosexuals in your country is not going to create anything fruitful. What do you expect us to say? We're angry? It's obvious this is merely about they money it would bring in. And think about it...maybe it will create some converts who may see the kindness, strength and love of Christ in the people they meet there?
We are keeping them away from church not because we hate them. We hate the sin not the sinner. We keep them away not because we hate them, but because we love our church. I have no problems at all if a gay person confesses and returns, but it should be done outside the church building.
George was right, I apologise.
