This is a very powerful response the advocates of hatred within our midst, as personified by the pastor mentioned therein. The speakers asks, "What can we do?" and the answer at the absolute minimum is to remove the arcane and inaccurate phrasing in our so-called "Book of Discipline" which incongruently refers to "homosexual practice" as if the essence of one's capacity to love is an occupational specialty or a somewhat sleazy law firm. Pastors like that do not serve Christ but instead serve their own demons within their tarnished souls. The telegenic pastors in our denomination's far right, who as Rev. William Barber of the North Carolina NAACP notes "talk so much about what the Bible says so little and so little about what the Bible says so much" have much to answer for. This unfortunate young man's blood is on their hands, and like Lady MacBeth they cannot wash it out.
