Isn't it ironic...

I feel a little sick and a lot guilty for being elated at news about the leader of New Life Church...but I can't help it. I hope this is true. If you devote your career to condemning behavior in which you participate behind closed doors, maybe it's time for a job change. It's really unfortunate that his life is so screwed up, but how exactly do you garner sympathy by using your fame and power to make other people miserable when all they want to do is live as they see fit?

I am so glad that I go to a church where, if the pastor announced they were gay, the next questions would be "Do you have a partner?" and "Will you two come over for dinner sometime?"

These repressed condemning types always seem to have something to hide.

What church is that?? I'm still an ambivalent sort of Catholic who can't quite give up the ceremony...but who really dislikes their politics. (Except for Jesuits. Long live Jesuits.)
