I heard a story today about a Kentucky church that decided to cut ties with the Boy Scouts. As you probably can guess, the decision was made after the Scouts recently voted to allow gay members.
The Pastor of that church told WDRB, that his church “did not desire to get caught up in the new direction of the Boy Scouts.”
There was another story recently on the news, about a NFL player whose speaking engagement with a church was cancelled after he openly supported Jason Collins, one of the first NBA athletes to come out about his sexuality (read the full story on USA Today).
Honestly, stories like this break my heart. Because when it comes down to it… It’s the exact opposite approach a true Christian church should take.
