Why do they get a pass?

Fred Phelps and the Westboro church crew definitely are hateful people. But the Jesus Metropolitan Community Church of Indianapolis, IN is misusing the Bible too! The $55,000 campaign by the church asks: Would Jesus discriminate? And it comes while Indiana lawmakers are being asked to prohibit same-sex couples from adopting children. Read the story here. Some of what they say is true:
"Do you know someone who is homosexual? Would you give your life for that person? Jesus did," the church's ad says.
I agree! But the Bible says homosexual behavior is a sin. We don't have special interest groups for Adulterers. We don't have special rights for those who are gluttons. We don't give special rights to liars. If I were a minority, I would be appalled at these people. Their first newspaper ad was run Sunday, a day when nearly 300,000 people were in town for the Indianapolis 500. In a Sunday edition of The Star showed a group of Klansmen around a burning cross with a headline,
"Remember a time when a symbol of love was used as a symbol of hate?" The subtext: "The Bible shouldn't be misused to justify discrimination against any group, including gay people."
Excuse me, if I were an African American, I would be outraged! If you say something about it you are called a homophobe. Jesus loves everyone, but He didn't die so we can excuse sin--any sin!

Jesus loved the sinner while hating the sin. We follow his example.

People who say things like that about Jesus do not know the Jesus of the Bible. We can't make Him into what we want Him to be.

The sad thing is how many people (lost & saved)who don't know the Bible start buying into that junk. Yet another reason why we must be faithful to "preach the word!"
