Grant Aims to Expand Pro-Gay Churches

A $1.2 million grant has been awarded to expand the efforts of gay and lesbian groups in increasing the number of churches that fully welcome and affirm homosexuals.

The grant from the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund was given to the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Foundation's Institute for Welcoming Resources and five partner organizations for a joint collaboration on strengthening the capacity and voice of Christian organizations that support gays and lesbians.

The initiative includes the pro-gay "welcoming church movement" in which congregations, through a formal vote, offer "an unconditional welcome to people of all sexual orientations and gender identities."

Currently, more than 3,100 congregations throughout the country have explicitly welcomed lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people to full inclusion, according to the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, which merged with the Institute for Welcoming Resources in 2006 in efforts to "increase the number of people of faith supporting equality for LGBT people."
re: "welcoming church movement" and "formal vote"

Churchgoer 2008,
On this subject of being coerced into voting for or against the "unconditional welcome" into your churches for those who practice deviant sexual behaviors, this quoted comment from a post dated 4-21-08 - "as it was in the days of Lot" Luke 17:28 is about to prove true:

"If you belong to a church today you will be, sooner or later, confronted with this issue, and have to make a choice. Politically correct, or God's truth, honor, and holiness? God's truth, honor, and holiness are being smeared all over the ground now in 2008."

It is very important to understand that those who practice homosexuality and/or transgenderism are not a special group as they would have us believe. They actually fall into a broader category of general sinners, i.e. rebels against the holiness and authority of God Almighty. They are not set apart for special treatment but are lumped in with other fornicators of every stripe, adulterers, thieves, drunkards, etc. This category is known as "the unrighteous".

"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God." 1 Cor. 6:9-10; (for note on this verse, see: Homosexual Taking Bible To Court)

The inerrant and eternal truth of the Word of God is not something that can be voted upon, regardless of how well funded (1.2 million) or how many "partner organizations for...joint collaborations" engage in arm-twisting campaigns to force their way into churches with ballot boxes in hand. Abstaining from any such 'voting' is the only biblical approach to the dilemma, along with an unyielding vocal opposition to the entire charade.

It may and probably will mean separation from these apostate churches...oh well... "For what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?" 2 Cor. 6:14

Politically correct, or God's truth, honor, and holiness? Rev. 18:4
