A resolution submitted to the Southern Baptist Convention for its annual meeting in Dallas, Texas, has called on the nation's largest Protestant denomination to reject "homosexual identity politics" and state bans on conversion therapy.

Titled "On Ministry and Counseling to Lead People from Homosexuality to Heterosexuality," the resolution, among other things, asks the SBC to "offer loving assistance to people suffering from same-sex attraction, so that they may turn from homosexuality to heterosexuality" and to reject "as heresy any claims that God makes people homosexual."

"... the movement against so-called 'conversion therapy' poses an immediate threat to Christian obedience to the Gospel of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ because it is possible that due to lack of support from Christian ministries, some people with same-sex attractions may err in defining themselves as 'homosexual' by nature, and may thereby invite a fatal sin into their hearts," states the resolution submitted by Robert O. Lopez, a professor at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth, Texas.

I'll bet every person who signed it has had a dick in their ass.

The only question is if it was anonymous or in a truck stop rest room.

He's right, God doesnt make people gay; epigenetics does.

Not that there's anything wrong with that!

"The only question is if it was anonymous or in a truck stop rest room."

Those sound... the same to me.

When you're being hypocritical about it, there's a LOT wrong with it. Especially when you expose the message through and hide behind your religion.

------- despicable, you ask me. Anybody else, and I do mean ANYBODY else, taking one up the butt does not matter.

Technically true, God doesn't make gay people, since there is no God.

What about hermaphrodites (about 1 in 2000 births), is the baptist god off the hook there?

To claim there is a god (and he needs your money) that's a pretty common, transparent and ancient con, but to claim there is a god and only you know what he is thinking requires a special kind of huckster. From where does this knowledge come?

Omar Khayyam dunked these 'people' in the 11th century:
And do you think that unto such as you
A maggot-minded, starved, fanatic crew
God gave a secret, and denied it me?
Well, well -- what matters it? Believe that, too!

Since there actually is no all powerful God that "makes people" I suppose they are right about this.

But I do love their attempt at making up fake rules for their fake made up religion.

It is kind of funny how everyone just seems to pick and choose and interpret things in a way that benefits them personally.

Christianity needs a retcon or a reboot.

Making it clearer that the old covenant rules don't apply in 2018. I'm tired of "christians" using leviticus against gay people.

I recommend Jesus stop by and clear things up.

If He is not too busy and all.

Snoofy,

I'm getting weary of tossing pearls.

I think everyone who isn't a liberal should just quite posting and let the liberals turn on each other.

That might be entertaining.

I'm still waiting on Boaz to describe in great detail what bathed in Gay sin is like.

You know nothing about the bible, for if it did, you would know you wont make it into heaven bathed in gay sin. Obviously you havent read the bible. Do as the Romans do is what the bible teaches.

I know what you mean, bill.

I'm starting to seriously doubt the republican party wil even exist in ten years. Between the dying demographic and the use of the courts to disenfranchise voters...well, these are things a party in the terminal stages does.

The Romans had bisexual orgies.

Bisexuality is like Jiu Jitsu, it's only gay if you make eye contact.
