OMAHA, NE – With the recent push of Omaha area anti-LGBT Churches against LGBT protections, do these churches and their people really have a place to judge members of Omaha’s LGBT Community? I think not. Let’s look at the Catholic Church. Have they completely cleaned up the whole priests molesting children fiasco? No they have not. Yet they continue to stand against LGBT rights and protections initiatives. I have yet to see where in the Bible it says homosexuality deserves to be set aside and punished above all other sins. Pedophiles in the Church get the Churches protection, LGBT people with jobs and families, get the boot and the pink slip.
During the last round of LGBT issues in Omaha, Jean Stothert explicitly asked if the workplace protections ordinance would interfere with the ArchDiocese access to Keno money. Its very apparent they are receiving the money. Its basically gambling money and very hypocritical, I think, for the Church to be taking, but then singling out LGBT people for discrimination laws.
The Protestant Churches who hate gays are also just the same, as are their religious organization counterparts like Boy Scouts of America keeping files of gays and child molesters, but of course, failing to keep child molesters away from the boys, but definitely keeping gays away from their jobs.
In fact, information shows that because of all the gay bashing by these churches is why America is losing its religion. Which is ironic, because I think many of these churches act out against a group to blame for their problems in an attempt to save their denominations numbers. We are getting the same knee-jerk reaction from Tea Partiers fighting the inevitable truth that whites will only be a plurality in America and not the majority rule.
How many people offended by this pic looked the other way when the child molestation became front page news?
