Dear Daily Mail
There is a debate ripping through the world like wildfire… Except it’s not wildfire. It’s meant and manipulative.
Should gay clergymen will welcomed into the Christian Church??? The righteous on either side of the net are batting this back and forth, blissfully unaware… I would’ve hoped for better… People stand on their soap-boxes, screeching “This WILL divide the Church..!”
It will, but only if we let it… The devil’s existence is, perhaps, not the nicest topic of conversation, but he breeds and feeds on discord. Stop waving your placards, for heaven’s sake – Literally! Ours is not to reason why, or what, or when, or where, or who, or any other matter… Jesus Christ is our Saviour, His Father our Father… Who are we to barricade the churches??? For the houses of God do not belong to us. He simply lets us dwell in them. Sometimes, we do far too much kipping, and far too little waking up – To God’s TRUE message… We must open our arms wide and our hearts’ with LOVE to our fellow man.
We are all sinners, but only He can tell us when we have done right or wrong… So many think that they are protecting their Lord’s interests, their own, too, when truly, they are heaving more fuel into the furnace, and the Lord’s counterpart bathes in flame.
One thing, however, MUST be advocated… Not, in this instance, gay rights’, nor the right to public opinion… We (ALL of us, from either side of this unfortunate chasm) MUST tell everyone that they have the right to choose… If a person is unsure, personally, that homosexuality is the right thing for them, EVERYONE should respect their right to turn to our Father for advice… No one should tell that person that they simply are not brave enough to admit to what they truly are, neither should they scare them half to death by ordering the immediate withdrawal of any hint of their difference.
IF a person, on the other hand, feels at rest with their sexuality, and unquestioned by it, because they have made the effort to ask the Lord what it means to and for them personally, then they should be loved, respected, and welcomed, just the same as a person who may still have questions, or one whom has never been challenged in this manner…
