The statement issued by North Coast was encouraging, said Jennifer Pizer, Benitez's attorney. "It shows a journey that our whole society is taking together, away from intolerance and towards inclusion," she said.
"Toward inclusion!!!" So what about the rapist, pedophiles, polygamist,child abusers, or murderers? Shouldn't they be included too? Does this not strike a nerve? Can we not see the double standard that is being presented? These people say they are being inclusive, yet at the same time they are excluding the Christian worldview. Is it because we have become a nation described in Romans 2. That God has given us over to our own selves. That we have allowed our hearts to be hardened that we no longer rely on God's truth but seek man's truth. I think we need to return to what the apostles were teaching in Acts. To stop our idolatry (relying on our own ways), turn to God (look to Christ, God in flesh), and repent (in the turning process to God, we don't by God's grace turn back to those idolatrous things, but continuously run toward the cross).
