The response you posted was excellent, David.
Some of the other replies at beliefnet were sad and silly, however.
I suspect the original question came from an unrepentant gay, but I could be wrong.
How come no one ever asks questions like, "I am attracted to the Orthodox Church but I am a fornicator. Will I be accepted?" ?
They don't ask that question because they know the answer: repent.
Why then do they think we will negotiate on an abomination like homosexual conduct?
