Arch Bishop same sex unions gay marriage

The attitude of the church is impossible to understand. Is the final decision regarding what is right and what is wrong or sinful left up to the feelings of people ? especially the young immature people.

The Arch Bishop says..... "We have to face the fact that the vast majority of people under 35 not only think that what we're saying is incomprehensible but also think that we're plain wrong and wicked and equate it to racism and other forms of gross and atrocious injustice."

Of course the younger people think that about homosexual behaviour........... because they have been trained to think this way by those who write and direct for the movies and television. By their teachers and college professors. By President Obama and others. The culture is pressuring them to believe and accept that this is inborn beyond anyone's control. If you look closely at all available evidence, you find this is simply not true - but you can't say this out loud or you are branded a "hater" and "intolerant". (Even identical twins with the same exact DNA ...... who have exactly the same gender, eye color, skin color, everything are NOT both engaging in homosexual behavior. They each CHOOSE what they will do. It is not who they are it is what behavior they choose to engage in.

What if you substituted into the Arch Bishop's statement above, those who teach and believe that sex with children or animals is sinful ? "We have to face the fact that the vast majority of people under 35 not only think that what we're saying is incomprehensible but also think that we're plain wrong and wicked and equate it to racism and other forms of gross and atrocious injustice." What if in the future those who are opposed to pedophilia are thought of as wicked ??

What if people claimed that they were "born pedophiles" or "born bank robbers" would we eventually say that disapproving of this behavior was like racism or "gross and atrocious injustice" ?

Since when do the "vast majority of people under 35" get to decided what is wrong or sinful ??? Do we even care what God says is wrong or sinful behavior ? Does the Bible mean nothing......... even to the Arch Bishop and those who are claiming to be Christians ?

The vast majority of people under 35 don't think that paedophilia and bestiality is okay though.

And, yes, "the final decision regarding what is right and what is wrong or sinful" is "left up to the feelings of the people". That's a zany idea some powdered-wig-wearing men came up with a few centuries ago called democracy. We vote in people who agree with our views on the issues of the day and they decide the laws on which society operates.
