And this is why I will NEVER be a member of a Christian Church!
Advertisements [?]
I only go to houses of worship for weddings and funerals, and that's where I was on Saturday, in a Methodist church in Dallas watching my friend's son get married. After the pastor did his "dearly beloved" thing--IOW, just about 5 sentences into the ceremony--he actually said: "John and Mary stand before God as Male and Female--as God created and intended, only Male and Female can come together in holy matrimony."

I was so disgusted, it took all my effort not to walk out. Please tell me why a pastor would need to interject his homophobia into a wedding ceremony? Is Christianity so fragile that the believers need to validate it at every turn?
