You do not recite scripture,

The question, and there is no other ;

Why do you ally with those that pick and choose what word of God to obey in a buffet style? Why do you support that ? What scripture gives precedence to ignoring scripture for a political agenda ? DO not offer your lame everyone is a sinner excuse,

Episcopalian leaders continue to guide their denomination into the abyss—and no doubt, the Presbyterians (PCUSA) will soon follow.

As reported in the Huffington Post, the Episcopal denomination’s General Convention voted this week to make it illegal to “discriminate against anyone.” Specifically, that means it is now illegal to “. . . bar from the priesthood people who were born into one gender and live as another or who do not identify themselves as male or female.”
