No exegetical evidence presented!!

The author falls into the trap of putting experience at the same level as scripture which is unacceptable. Absolutely no exegetical evidence is given to support his position. It would be better to read and study Robert A. J. Gagnon's exegetical work on homosexual practice published by Abingdon. It takes a more serious approach to scripture.

Why the heading "Homosexuality and the Church"?

I don't understand the purpose of the heading "Homosexuality and the Church" on this article. I can see how the subject of the article speaks to that issue, but the subject of the article is far larger than the issue of homosexuality. I would say that the article addresses something foundational and the issue of homosexuality is subordinate. The reference to homosexualiy in the heading confuses this. Subsequently, the article makes no outright mention of homosexuality, although the heading makes it clear that the editor is leading the audience to read between the lines and draw conclusions.

Notable Quotes   

    "Christ told us specifically where He would be found and where we were to worship Him as Christians until He came in glory: Christ is in the people who need our help. Christ is in hungry and thirsty people; in people without adequate clothing and shelter; in people who are strangers in a strange land and people who are imprisoned. Any so-called Christianity that ignores or, God forbid, abuses such people is pernicious heresy from the pit of hell. You spit on the Body of Christ in the Chalice when you abuse Him in the body of your neighbor."

    – Mary Pezzulo, "How to Help Imprisoned Migrants," on her blog "Steel Magnificat" on Patheos.com.
