Turmoil in Gay christiantiny

It is just over 3 years that Gay marriage was legalised in the US, on 26 June 2015. And coincidentally, it was 15 years ago, on 26 June, 2003, that same-sex activities was legal. The major Gay denomination in the states, the MCC, has been a great blessing to the Gay Christians but the battle now starts to find meaning and purpose for existence in an increasingly left-wing mainline Christianity. Will the Rainbow bring something different to the highly polarised state of Christianity.

The recent fracas in Other Sheep (an outreach for Gay Christians) whereby the MCC members had muscled in and replaced the Executive Director, Stephen Parelli formerly of MCC and First Baptist Church  just because he is a Trump supporter is reflective of the ever-increasing liberal radicalization of Gay Christianity.

Is this not Parental abuse of bringing young children to walk thousands of miles through dangerous tracks? If the human rights situation was so desperate in Central America, why wasn’t a resolution passed at the UN HCR to bring to world attention? After 500 years of the near universal control by the Black Pope and the Colonial elites have resulted in deep poverty and political strive in much of Latin America despite the many priest led revolutions and independence.

The mainline media has tried to twist this as a purely Trump initiative, but there were no new laws. These laws were already in the books under the Democrats but were not enforced. Nor were they exceptional. Therefore the criticism by the UN HRC was indeed hypocritical as all their member states have the same laws. Worst still, illegal immigrants in these states are by far worst treated.
