I take offense to Ed Plum's views on compromise on marriage. This is marriage -- man and woman! That is it, there is no other, even the laws of nature are in accord with this view. Animals mate with the opposite sex to keep our land renewed with meat for us.
I am so tired of anyone who is different, namely homosexuals, saying that we have to change our laws and our Christian views because they are different. This "beloved" organist has any number of other religions that tolerate his behavior and will give him a job. He knows as well as I do that God does not tolerate this behavior, yet he expects that his lifestyle will be tolerated in a Christian church whose tenets do not condone it.
Everyone has a right to their own lifestyle, however, it is not up to others to change what their church teaches just to accommodate them. Sin is sin, and there are consequences to all kinds of sin, and when the sin of homosexuality is blatantly displayed, then, yes, a "beloved" organist loses his job.
