These folks are pretty offensive to me and arrogant in their remarks, even if they are speaking of Baptists and not Catholics or Orthodox.
For one, they seem pretty "set" in their belief that homosexuality is 100% okay to practice ("healthy" they call it--what is healthy for the body is not always healthy for the soul--see fasting. There is also the thorn of AIDS).
Not only do they believe it so strongly, they also force it on others who are trying to lead virtuous family lives.
They paint with a broad brush--i.e. anything related to Christianity is fair game--and they discriminate against Baptists in several ways. And gosh, we God folk are "intolerant" and the cause of war. Also, if you strictly adhere to a belief, then you are a "bigot" (However, St. Paul never saw faith as intellectual choice, but rather Life in Christ--so I might agree here). Disagreeing--charitably--with the homosexual lifestyle does not make you a bigot.
I do agree that the rich need to be saved much more than those who struggle with homosexuality.
I only defend the Baptists here because it's not fair to bare false witness and because many Baptists come to Orthodoxy through getting parts of the truth. Alas, that does not make me tolerant enough for these people. :cwm38:
