” . . since homosexuality is clearly condemned in the Bible, allowing this will make it look bad.
I have no problem with anyones sexual preference. But it would be hypocritical to allow homosexual preists, to preach against homosexuality. I

Sorry Don, but that sort of reasoning brings us to a slippery slope. Human beings must have some form of absolutes or else they will soon find themselves even debating over what Right and Wrong means.
During Nero's reign, the said emperor was the most popular King Rome ever had. EVER. Why? Because he ate his impregnated Sister's baby out of the womb in the fashion of Zeus.
Nero confirmed his demi-God status in the eyes of Romans. Yet later he became one of the most unpopular emperors Rome ever had. Why? Because he claimed to be a God before he died.
“ . . absolutes, the basic differences between Right and Wrong. I believe in Right and Wrong, my values are derived from a divine source not my own fallible intuition which will just selfishly guide me to what is most convenient. That is my view over why the homosexuality issue DOES matter. [Edited by Don W]
