Functional atheist Rev Gary Hall calls wrong right and right wrong

 

New International Version  Isaiah 5:20
“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter”.

 

We agree  with Rev  Gary  Hall  that  LGBT  youth  should  not  be  bullied  or oppressed.

In supporting homosexuality and claiming  that rejecting homosexual behaviour is sin the Rev Gary Hall  is  however  philosophically  consistent  with atheists  who  deny “design  with intent  and  for  purpose” in the universe.  The  atheist  position on homosexuality  is  therefore logically  coherent  but wrong  in that  the  atheist  first premise (axiom)  –  that  there  is  no  God –  is  wrong.

 

Not  so  the Rev  Gary Hall who  is  totally  incoherent  in addition to  being  completely  un-biblical .

Someone who  claims  to  be  theist  i.e  claims  to  believe  that  God  made  the universe,  and  and  claims  to  speak  for  God  in support  of  homosexuality , like  the Rev  Hall ,  is  implying  that  the designer  of  the universe ( GOD ) is  utterly  incoherent or  mad  or  both  for  a god  who embraces  homosexuality  must  also  reject  the concept  of  “design  with intent and  for  purpose”.  

Rev  Gary  Hall  is entitled  to his  opinion but  not  from a  place  of  incoherence.

 Functional  atheists  such as himself  and  Archbishop Tutu  should  go  where  they belong –  in a  secular /  atheist  group.  

Of  course  they will not  for  their  role  is to  function as  5th columnists which allows  LGBT  groups  such as GLAAD  to claim  that  some  “christians”  support  homosexuality.

The Dean of Washington’s National Cathedral, Rev. Gary Hall, came out in no uncertain terms this weekend to denounce LGTB discrimination in his Sunday sermon.

“We must now have the courage to take the final step and call homophobia and heterosexism what they are. They are sin. Homophobia is a sin.Heterosexism is a sin.Shaming people for whom they love is a sin,” said Dean Hall. He continued, “Only when all our churches say that clearly and boldly and courageously will our LGBT youth be free to grow up in a culture that totally embraces them fully as they are.”

He criticized the role that some churches have in advancing oppression of LGTB youth, saying, “It’s more than tragic—in fact it’s shameful–that faith communities, especially Christian ones, continue to be complicit in putting our children at risk and abetting the attitudes that oppress them, thereby encouraging the aggressors who would subject our children to pain, humiliation, and violence.”

His remarks were given as part of a weekend which honored LGTB young people at National Cathedral and commemorated the 15th anniversary of the tragic death of Matthew Shepard, a young man murdered in an anti-gay hate crime. The Sunday Forum discussion included Judy Shepard, Matt Shepard’s mother; Jane Clementi, the mother of Tyler Clementi, a young man who died of suicide after being cyber bullied; and LGBT youth advocate Joshua Deese of the Trevor Project.

Hall announced earlier this year that National Cathedral would begin celebrating same-sex marriages.

“It is not only just OK to be gay, straight, bisexual, or transgendered. It is good to be that way, because that is the way God has made you,” he said.
