I wish this issue was a non issue. As a church we are supposed to practice love and acceptance to all human beings, and not doing so goes against a fundamental piece of who we are as the United Church.
Would we hate some one for liking the colour purple, for instance? Or if they ate a particular food?
We are all human beings with emotions. Regardless of the label of sexual orientation or who a person loves, God never meant for his love to be conditional.
The United Church has come along way but the journey is still ongoing.
