Pope Francis to church: Accept gays, divorced Catholics - CNN.com 1 Cor 6:9; Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 1 Cor 6:10; nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. I think this is partially valid. I do think some Christians and churches are somewhat unwelcoming to gays and lesbians. We should love the sinner, but not the sin. On the other hand, there comes a point where the church no longer calls it sin, and soon no longer considers it sin. It's OK to be in the church, it's OK to take communion even while you do these things. I myself am not Roman Catholic and never have been, but we should pray for these people and for the leadership of that church. No wonder the media thinks this is "OK" and normal.
