    Actually, if I remember correctly, when you read the S/G passage, they were punished for trying to **** an angel. That's what specifically happened, right?

    So, the following conclusions would all be reasonable:
    1. Don't **** angels.
    2. Don't **** anyone.
    3. Be nice and hospitable to outsiders.
    4. Don't put ****es in boy buttholes.

    Just sayin'.

    That's what I figured. OOO seems pretty moderate to be a Church of Christ churchgoer.

    I grew up in DOC. I haven't found a congregation I like in Oklahoma so my wife and I tried out Mayflower on my Aunt's recommendation (she teaches at Philips Seminary in Tulsa and my uncle is dean). Funny story, the minister exists to piss off Baptists it seems. He writes in the Gazette every now and then and it just eats at the local clergy.

    Relevant passage:

    19 The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. When he saw them, he got up to meet them and bowed down with his face to the ground. 2 “My lords,” he said, “please turn aside to your servant’s house. You can wash your feet and spend the night and then go on your way early in the morning.”

    “No,” they answered, “we will spend the night in the square.”

    3 But he insisted so strongly that they did go with him and entered his house. He prepared a meal for them, baking bread without yeast, and they ate. 4 Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom—both young and old—surrounded the house. 5 They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.”

    6 Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him 7 and said, “No, my friends. Don’t do this wicked thing. 8 Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don’t do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof.”

    9 “Get out of our way,” they replied. “This fellow came here as a foreigner, and now he wants to play the judge! We’ll treat you worse than them.” They kept bringing pressure on Lot and moved forward to break down the door.

    10 But the men inside reached out and pulled Lot back into the house and shut the door. 11 Then they struck the men who were at the door of the house, young and old, with blindness so that they could not find the door.

    12 The two men said to Lot, “Do you have anyone else here—sons-in-law, sons or daughters, or anyone else in the city who belongs to you? Get them out of here, 13 because we are going to destroy this place. The outcry to the Lord against its people is so great that he has sent us to destroy it.”

    How do you hate the sin but love the sinner if you make it clear the sinner isn't welcome?

    Elass said 815 people voted to leave the denomination, while 55 people cast votes against severing ties.

    1) ordaining homosexuals
    2) presbyterian usa does not allow its churches to marry same sex couples......but it is apparently being done.......and presbyterian usa is taking no action against those churches....

    i don't know of any main line churches that deny membership to homosexuals....

    To be honest, I don't hate the church but I was pretty upset when they let Joel Baker go. I don't know if you were there when that happened but he has been a friend of the family for many years and had put in years at the 1st Presby.

    you want scripture saying that s&g were destroyed specifically and ONLY because of male homo sex?
    i'm not aware of any....
    do you think the gay homo sex had no impact on God's decision?
