Priests only serve 3 main denominations: Catholicism, Orthodoxy, And Anglicanism. In all 3 of these denominations (except for Anglicanism), Priests much be celibate. This means that they cannot have any sexual relations with anyone. Any gender, Any age. Period. This means that there is no reason, Other than blatant discrimination, That gay priests shouldn't be allowed ordination. If you think that being gay is a choice, Think again. Numerous studies have concluded that a shrink in the hippocampus, Which can also cause depression and anxiety, Can cause homosexual tendencies. If people say being gay is a choice, They are also saying that having depression and anxiety is a choice.
I seriously do not see why some of you still hold on to the belief that homosexuality is a "sin". Firstly, it is a genetic trait, NOT a choice (there are many animals in nature that also exhibit homosexual behaviors so don't even try to gainsay otherwise), and besides, what does their sexual interest matter to you? YOU aren't them, what right do you have to say that they can't be a part of your community? If Jesus supposedly tells you to "love thy neighbor", then why do you oppose his word through discrimination? It seems to me like you people are the ones whom contradict what your deity teaches.
Priests in Protestant churches should be allowed to be openly homosexual just because Jesus preached that love is of utmost importance. The Episcopal church in America has ordained openly gay leaders in recent times and more organizations should follow. The one religious organization that should allow priests to be female, married or openly gay is the Catholic church, but that won't happen for decades to come.
I think that the ordination of gay and lesbian priests should be allowed. But that decision should be left for the religion and churches they belong to. I do not believe that religions should have to be force to ordain gay and lesbian priests if they choose that they do not want to.
Though the equal rights movement is important to live in a conflict free society, separation of church and state is at stake with this debate. Each religion is allowed lawful practice but to impose equal rights on their doctrine is a direct violation of that policy. Let religion practice their religion and their own guidelines without government policies imposed.
There should be no ordination whatsoever of any gay or lesbian priests. This is a blasphemy against God and will contradict everything that Jesus has taught. It goes against the moral values of every Christian Believer and will just cause a bigger uproar. Ordination should only be for people who live an honest and pure life according to the bible.
By priest i assume we are talking of men of God and Jesus Christ being his only begotten son.
Homosexuality is not allowed in the bible, it is a taboo. So how does it look the teacher,the keeper and the preacher of his words to be that which is prohibited.
Gay and lesbian priests are unrepentant of their sin. Homosexuality is an act against God. You cannot enter a pastoral position unrepentant of your sins. If the gay or lesbian pastor did repent and turned to God and became heterosexual, then yes i would be all for their ordination, but on their current state, it is impossible!!!
Because you are either born a male or a female. Trannies are not valid and never will be. The stupid argument that you are born into a male body but with a female brain is invalid, Because the brain HAS NO gender, The brain adapts the influence of people with the same gender in society and starts acting like that. For example, When you are born a male and you turn 6, You are gonna see boys wear boy clothing, Play boy sports, And all the other boy things, Your brain adapts that boyish influence and you start acting like a real male your entire life from your birth sex. Trannies are not valid and never will be.
Good riddance. Heterosexuality>homosexuality.
Heterosexuality brings kids the right way with a man and a woman making love. It brings balance to society and doesn't ruin families. Heterosexuality above all is natural. Homosexuality is unnatural, Brings aids, Ruins families and is causing chaos right now in society. Trannies make it worse. No, You aren't born transgender, It is a choice made based by personal delusions of the mind, Perversions and most of all. Gender dysphoria which is a mental illness. Transgenderism should not be pushed onto kids nor on everyone else. We will not be forced to date trannies. A woman cannot identify as a victim when she consented to sex with a man. Logicphobes will deny facts and you know what? We purge heretics who want to destabilize our society. LGBT are all invalid perverted bigots. Whatever the case, If you think trannies are normal, You need to get your facts STRAIGHT. Trannies are basically gay. Why? Trans men are delusional women. Trans women are delusional men. Feminazis and other degenerate retards are invalid. Your so called "arguments" have 0 evidence. While science has proven only two genders/two sexes exist. No, Not every feeling is natural because our minds can lie to us, Like gay being wrong, Yet some claim it's right, Degeneracy like that can no longer be tolerated. Yeah, No, Heterosexuality is natural and we, The majority love it, LGBT will be erased for attempting to rewrite everything and fabricate lies of homosexuality being right. Homosexuality is unnatural, Wrong and brings diseases. Therefore, No it is absolutely not possible to be transgender for no one is born that way. Only delusional people with a mental disorder become that and they become hideous. They aren't themselves and are ugly. Think I am transphobic? Well you are wrong. You degenerates are all heterophobes, Truthphobes, Biophobes, Logicphobes, Islamophobes. Labels like cis gender was invented, Fabricated by LGBT bullshit propaganda, Homosexuality will cease to be promoted on tv shows and movies, Trump had it right when he banned trans people from the military and strip them off from healthcare from the LGBT degenerates. I support Liberty, Guns, Quran and Trump. God made men and women, He did not make transgenderism. Offended snowflakes did and they are invalid 100%. LGBT is the work of demons.
