Freedom of choice
In her recent “good feeling” items being submitted by Review correspondent Michelle Brenner, she included – Pastor Steve Cornell’s column in the Sunday News. I also read the pastor’s Sunday column of good feeling opinions.
I reviewed the (Sunday, Feb. 25) column, “Michael Sam and the liberal media” by Steve Cornell. The kind pastor’s review of the gay college athlete Michael Sam was presented without homosexual discrimination. We know his view of love and compassion for all gay people was appreciated by female gay clerics. The name lesbian was never mentioned.
Incidentally, here is a (Lancaster Intell/New Era) Feb. 1, 2014, front page, gay report: “Lancaster native Theda Good will officially become the first gay pastor to be licensed for ministry in the nation’s largest Mennonite denomination on Sunday.” The carnal name lesbian is shunned by gay female clerics.
If someone had told me 30 years ago that a Mennonite denomination would have a lesbian as their licensed gay pastor, I would have never believed it. For God will surely hold the Mennonite church accountable for their female ordination doctrine. There are three other denominations in Lancaster County that may ordain a gay female.
In his homosexual column, Pastor Cornell never rebuked the ordination of gay clerics. The pastor showed a kind tolerance for the gay athlete Michael Sam, he never labeled the man “carnal.” All men may live the same carnal lifestyle in a secular culture.
We are a (King James Version) congregation and we do cherish our U.S. “freedom of religion,” be a home missionary and spread the gospel words of a loving God found in John 3:16-17. Freedom of choice, is a noble Bible theme found in Acts 17:11.
