If you use that argument then we have to accept the argument that the bible is fictional and incorrect in this matter and that the idea of sin is
antiquated and, when referenced from a Christian perspective, completely contradictory.
We don't want to get into a head butting contest.
If this story is correct, then it is a clear case of political correctness gone crazy.
Although I disagree with the fundamental Christian perspective on a lot of things, I don't think that we should stop people from speaking about it's
values ... to a point of course.
To say that homosexuality is a sin is not "hate speech" (gees this term is being overused). A lot of people think it is. It doesn't mean they are
right (they are not) and it doesn't mean they hate homosexuals.
"God hates Fags", on the other hand, is a clear example of hate speech with homosexuality as context.
In my opinion, this incident was far, far from this kind of rhetoric but, by charging the preacher, puts it in the same basket.
This happening is far more dangerous to us than a little fire and brimstone ... Although this seems like it was more like a little smoulder and hard
boiled eggs ...
