In the bible it does, however, specifically mention homosexuality as a sin, so we do not support it. However, in the church that i attend, gays would be welcome to come and worship with us. We are open to everyone. Funny how its bad to steotype gays, races, and others, but society widely excepts steotyping christans...
"But if the thing is true, that the tokens of virginity were not found in the young woman, then you shall bring out the young woman to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her to death with stones..."
"For the wife does not rule over her own body, but the husband does..."
..........1 Corinthians 7:4
"As in all the churches of the saints, the women should keep silence in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be subordinate, as even the law says. If there is anything they desire to know, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church."
..........1 Corinthians 14:34
"For man was not made from woman, but woman from man. Neither was man created for woman but woman for man."
..........1 Corinthians, 11:8
"Let a woman learn in silence with all submissiveness. I permit no woman to teach or have authority over men; she is to keep silent. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor."
so why cannot gay/bi/lesbian people be equal like women in the modern church
