One Small Step

The Post and Courier - Church OKs gays as clergy - Charleston SC -

It's a step in the right direction, at least.

Wow. The comments on that article are ... not surprising... but in other ways uplifting. I'm glad to see some logical folks get involved in the discussion to point out the lack of compassion present in the gay policy.

Christ giving us a mandate of love and compassion is so easy to read and proselytize and something else entirely to practice when you have people pointing out inconsistencies in the very Book your parishioners follow for guidance.

As long as those edited inconsistencies(thank you Irenaeus) are allowed to stand nothing will change. The churches will split between the literalists and the non-literalists even more.

I'm afraid so. But it seems like people are at least being allowed to talk about it more, other than just hearing it preached against in Sunday services. The more it's talked about, the harder it will be for literalists.
