you are so right, they denounce their religion and wish to turn it into their political philosophy. religion cannot be changed every time there is a new government or an new governor. religion is an ideal, and people must have an ideal to strive for, otherwise they have only the drudgery of the animal life. the Coumos do not understand that, they wish to bring religion to the level of their left ideas, which are not only unacceptable for many americans but are certainly anti religious. if they want abortion and gay marriage they can have it in the secular world, the religious world is a different world.

When St. Paul wrote "In Christ there is neither male nor female," he was writing about salvation, not about who does what in the Church. If you read the context of what he wrote to the Galatian Christians, you should understand this.

Anyhow, you're playing the goofball role of hanging a whole theology on a single bible verse without getting any context from neighboring verses, let alone the rest of the bible. Classic traditional propriety by sex is a very Christian thing as long as these mortal bodies are still chugging along -- and the bible is very emphatic about it. In heaven it's a new story with all rapt in the spirit of God and so situations like multiple earthly marriages translating into heaven never come up.

dO you have any idea how many well known priests and ministers have been and are homosexuals?I DON'T think so.aborton,yew,i can see where one might have a problem with that from a religious context,although originally it was not a big protestant issue,francis schaeffer took it up and ran with it later getting Jerry Fowelwell of Liberty u to take it up-Francis' son,Franky has blowen the whistle on how it was co-oped into a major politicaL/SECULAR issue,but women priests? St paul said"In christ there is neither male nor female.."Any person really into Christ should support that.!

Rome -- "May God forgive you." That's Cardinal Timothy Dolan's translation of a joke that Pope Francis told the College of Cardinals a day after being elected the 267th pontiff.

Having watched the prayerful mien of some of the cardinals going into the papal conclave that would elect Argentinean Jorge Mario Bergoglio pope, I have reason to believe that God had something to do with Papa Francisco, as the Romans call their bishop.

Others, of course, see it otherwise.
