Top D.C. Priest Favors Gay Marriage, Calls Disagreement Sinful





Catholicism 2

As leftism continues creeping into modern religion, the church has come under fire for its tacit acceptance of sexual sin. Pope Francis was criticized recently for suggesting that the church focuses too much attention on issues such as homosexuality.

Rev. Gary Hall, who leads the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., is an Episcopal leader whose comments on the gay lifestyle have raised eyebrows both within and outside of the church.

Calling it “the last barrier,” Hall said that criticism of homosexuality should be relegated along with sexism and racism.

“We must now have the courage to take the final step and call homophobia and heterosexism what they are. They are sin,” he said.

In this latest move to legitimize a lifestyle most religions have historically taught is a sin, Hall instead castigates those who hold fast to God’s word. Furthermore, the National Cathedral will begin performing same-sex weddings under his leadership.

Though there are those who cloak hatred — no matter their target — in a skewed definition of religion, true Christians want to share the love and forgiveness of Jesus with as many people as possible. This includes reaching people where they are and introducing them to a Savior who will take away the sin in which they are living.

Hall, on the other hand, has proclaimed that such outreach a sin.

“Shaming people because their gender identity doesn’t fit neatly into your sense of what it should be is a sin,” he said. Completely disregarding what God ordained marriage to be, Hall unilaterally told his congregation that they must be willing to accept and support any bastardization of that standard.

He said that his goal is to make sure “today’s generation of LGBT youth will thrive and grow and take their places around this table, with Jesus, as we bless, forgive, heal, and love the world.”

Loving the world is the central theme of Jesus Christ’s teachings on earth. He did not, however, instruct his followers to give sinners permission to remain as such.

The Bible teaches that all sin is the same to God, and His followers are called to turn away from it. Hall encourages people to embrace their sin by proudly flaunting it within the church. He is leading people to Hell by instructing them that God’s rules no longer apply.

A church leader should care more about a person’s eternal soul than his or her ability to fornicate with abandon.

  1. Whoa! How can you possibly defend the Church's teachings and recognize LGBT's agenda, especially to the point of performing gay marriages in the National Cathedral? This whole world has gone crazy or is this just another threat from the dictator that his will shall be done? I cannot believe this article!

    • alicesmith says:

      anyone who condones gay marriage no that being together of the same sex is an abomination against God and you can read that in the Bible sodom and gamora were distroyed because of homosexalality

  2. Kennible Lecter says:

    Leftism… it's killing the world like the cancer that it is.

  3. Well put in the article about the fact that we are not to condone the sin. To go along with the sin as if it were normal or just that you don't want to hurt there feelings is totally against Gods word. I guess if you condone the sin and help support it you are sinning just as much as they are. The people of that church should go over his head and ask that he be removed or leave.

  4. Fr. Sistare says:

    The article and photo of the Blessed Mother are very deceiving. This minister is not Catholic! He is Episcopalin. A Catholic priest could never licitly marry 2 people of the same sex

  5. Edwardkoziol says:

    To be forthright here, I don't care what others think or believe when it comes to queers.
    All I know, and care about, is my Bible tells me God is against homosexuality. God calls it a sin.
    Be queer all you wish. You can accept a queer going against God.
    I will NOT accept it nor condone it, and you can't make me.
    It IS simple as that.
