Baptist church in D.C. hires ‘married’ lesbians as Pastors


(WND) Despite the Bible’s clear opposition to homosexual relations in both the Old and New Testaments, a Baptist church in the heart of the nation’s capital has just named a “married” lesbian couple to co-pastor its flock.

 Calvary Baptist Church in Washington, D.C., presented Maria Swearingen and Sally Sarratt to its congregation during morning worship on Sunday, with the women’s official duties commencing Feb. 26.

“We look for the best people in the world and that’s who they were,” church spokeswoman Carol Blythe told the Religion News Service. “We’re very excited.”

In a news release, Blythe indicated: “As we met and talked with Sally and Maria about their vision for pastoral leadership at Calvary, we were struck by their deep faith and commitment to being part of a gospel community.”

“We were impressed by how their gifts, talents, and experience matched our ministry priorities – and we are thrilled about their upcoming pastorate and the versatility the co-pastor model will provide our congregation.”

During services on Sunday, Swearingen and Sarratt told church members: “We have found it so easy to fall in love with Calvary and its longstanding commitment to be a voice of justice and compassion for those who perpetually find the wholeness of their humanity disregarded and maligned.”

The couple come to Calvary from Greenville, South Carolina, where Sarratt has been serving as associate chaplain for behavioral health in the Greenville Health System and Swearingen as associate chaplain at Furman University.

Sarratt holds a Master of Theological Studies degree from Emory University, while Swearingen earned a Master of Divinity degree from Duke Divinity School…

    I’m wondering if these two are also advocates of keeping prayer out of our schools?

    • Edward Cibener

      Of course-it is illegal, because we do not always pray to or for the same thing, or not at all. School is for using your brain-something most fanatics like yourself obviously do not want-shame.

  • just care

    Married lesbians in the church?
    Why not, we’ve had married lesbians in the white house for 8 years

    • chip canter4bury

      TRUE.

    • Edward Cibener

      Do not know what you mean, but it is funny in the same way the 3 stooges are funny.

    • jong

      Hum, I always thought mooochie was a tranny.

  • roberg griggs

    How much longer will it be, before Jesus comes for His people? All in His timing. All true believers keep reading and studying and studying the Bible.

    • Star Wright

      On that , i can safely say to everyone.
      WHEN YOU HEAR THE SOUND OF THE TRUMP.
      THEN YOU KNOW, the RAPTURE IS HAPPENING.
      AMEN

  • Edward Cibener

    They look like a lovely couple, and they should be judged on their abilities as Pastors, not on their domestic situation or their sexual orientation(s).

    • PCnoMore

      Really? They are outright living against the very words they are supposed to be teaching. They worldliness, verses godliness, is not a plus on their pastoral resume.

      • Edward Cibener

        You intolerant bigots are all the same/trying to destroy the words of love and understanding with the creed of intolerance, I pity you and your attitude!

        • Star Wright

          Instead of challenging us by useing indiscript words.
          Why not get in to the Bible your self.
          And see that it is a fact.
          God will not tolerate
          Homosexuals.
          That is one of the reasons why God put Trump in as President.
          Because (0), did such damage.
          And as it has been said before.
          It is time to drain the swamp.
          Amen

      • Edward Cibener

        Nonsense-if they are intelligent, compassionate people it should make no difference.

    • James Maxwell

      The Bible is expressed against Homosexuality and it tells us to hate the sin but love sinner. I can understand that but I would be suspect of them actually teaching the Bible since they are violating one of the taboos in the Bible.

      • Edward Cibener

        That’s just what it is-a taboo, which defined means an old wives tale! Congratulations, you have just reached the 14th Century, when Churches and governments burned anybody who disagreed or lived differently then they did-ignorance and bigotry, here we come!

        • James Maxwell

          Edward you want to live in sin that is your choice, no
          one is forcing you to change your mine. But if you are a Christian and follow the BIBLE, then you must accept it completely and no matter how you try to sway or change it the word is that Homosexuality is a sin.
          There is no argument you can make to change that.
          If you life in sin then you cannot preach nor teach the
          world of GOD and expect others to follow you to
          salvation. You are ignorant and are confused but
          either way it is your choice in life. We do not burn
          those who are against the world of GOD only the
          cult of islam does that and has done so for a long time.

          • Edward Cibener

            Again sin is a human construct-yours and your intolerant followers. By the way, why do you capitalize Bible and God-this is not a game show where you get more points for advertising-I am not ignorant and confused but you certainly are because you are a silly bible thumper-so sad.

        • Star Wright

          You will burn!

    • gerald Hughes

      Ah another, that will find out what is worse than burning for eternity.

      • Edward Cibener

        Better be careful that bigots don’t burn for eternity-after all, we are judged equally in the eyes of the creator, that is what the Bible says, no?

        • gerald Hughes

          I may pay for my sins, that way, God will decide that.
          The life forms that go to God and tell him that he was wrong and they had to change His word.
          It is almost, in me to feel sorry for you life forms, almost.

    • jong

      Which of course they can not be of GOD. GOD in both the Old and New Testaments has called this what it is and what to do about it. They can not change the Holy Bible no matter how long you stomp your little foot. Silly child.

  • dolittle

    lorxd have mercy now we have perverts as pastors guess i’ll stay out of church read my bible and pray that God listens since his commands are being broken daily

    • wandamurline

      Maybe this is why people are starting to quit going to church. This is just beyond belief and that a Baptist Church would do this….Episcopalians have been hiring homos for a while, but this is a first….I am ashamed to be Baptist.

      • BLESSED

        That is true. At the same time the so called pastors aren’t saved in the first place or they would be standing up against this sort of thing.

      • James Maxwell

        I am not ever ashamed of my beliefs nor my choice of churches.
        I have and always will be a Southern Baptist an try to follow the
        teaching of the Bible. I am human and have the frailties of being
        so but I cannot agree with this on any level.

      • William Manners

        I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints for the past 10 years this would have been my 11th year in February. But a few months ago Coda Livingston was appointed Bishop. The first time he got up and spoke to the congregation he told the congregation that they should not object to his callings (callings are jobs in the church or offices that members are called to do or fulfill) or they are not supporting the Church. That is a lie!!! Satan is the Father of all lies! When someone is called to an office or duty the congregation is asked if they can sustain that person in that calling and they are also asked if anyone has any objection. The Church would not ask the question if it did not want to know the answer! Coda Livingston is preaching false doctrine. That’s Satan’s way! after that I witnessed 5 occasions where Coda Livingston has promoted Satan’s plan. Satan’s plan was to deny all people agency, or free will. after the fifth time I stopped going to that Church and I cannot in good conscience return as long as he is in charge! I am happy to return to the Lutheran Church who still preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

        • Johnny Herrin

          You should read your Bible and then your will realize that Mormonism is of the devil. We will not all become Gods and Jesus is not the same as the archangel Gabriel or Michael or whatever it is they teach. Mormans are are not Christians. Read your Bible and pray for God to reveal the truth to you.

          • William Manners

            The Mormon Church is the true Church of Jesus Christ! God said we are here to become like him. He is God. To be like him is to be a God, like Jesus. God, Jesus and the holy Spirit are 3 separate individuals. Jesus repeatedly says “I come to do my Father’s will, not mine.” When Jesus was baptized, He was in the water, God spoke from Heaven and the Spirit was on Jesus’ shoulder. Jesus is not an archangel, He is the only begotten Son of God, not an angel of any kind. You should read your Bible more closely.

          • Johnny Herrin

            “You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me,”
            ‭‭John‬ ‭5:39‬ ‭

            “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
            John 14:6

            This final passage is about Jesus. He always has been..

            “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men.”
            ‭‭John‬ ‭1:1-4‬ ‭

          • William Manners

            So now you agree with me. Jesus, God and the Holy Spirit are 3 separate individuals. Which is what the Mormon Church teaches.

          • Star Wright

            They are 3 individuals.Yet they are one.
            KJB

          • William Manners

            As I said they are 3 separate individuals with one purpose, to bring about the immortality of man. That is, to bring all God’s children back to Him, to live with Him in Heaven. The purpose of having us come to earth was to gain a body so we can be like God, and to learn right from wrong. We are allowed agency (choice) so we can make mistakes and learn why things are either right or wrong. But the penalty for wrong decisions (sin) is death. So God sent his Son to Earth to be born of man so He could show us how to live and do what is right. But since none of us have been able to do that He died to pay the penalty for us so we can return to God to live with him in Heaven.

          • Star Wright

            The Mormon church believes in a man haveing more than just one wife.
            And that is wrong.
            God said: one man an one woman.That is a leagal marriage.
            Are you a homosexual?
            If you are, i pray you will repent.And get out of that life style.
            I am not judgeing you.
            Just bringing to light.That a homosexual life style.
            Is a sin, and Jesus will not condone it.Which means,
            If you don’t come out of that.You will die in your sin.
            No one knows when Jesus is to return.But we are to ready.As it could be at any time.And one does not want to be in a sinful life style. As you will be left behind.
            That would be very bad for you.
            Please read the
            King James Bible
            Amen

          • Star Wright

            Ps.82:6 I have said , ye are (gods).
            As also in the Exodus.
            God made Moses, as a god to pharoah.

      • Joy

        The boundary lines are blurred between good and evil by the church. People are looking for relationships and boundaries. That is why Trump was elected, he has drawn the line in the sand and speaks the truth; and he lives it…no alcohol or drugs and hopefully no adultery.

        The church should try it sometime!

      • JT

        Please read my post. This so called Baptist Church is 1) part of the CBF or 2) they lost their fellowship in a true Baptists. But for sure they are not true Baptists.

    • That’s exactly what I did for ten years. My present Church seems ok.

    • Meredith Washburn

      There are plenty of good church’s that teach and believe what the Word of God says. Do not stay away from coming together with like minded Christians because of this false teaching church.

    • Daniel Brofford

      Meredith is right dolittle. Please don’t stop going to church because other church’s are not doing the right things. Of course you want to keep reading your bible and praying but it is so nice to go and worship with people who truly love Jesus.

    • James Maxwell

      Signs of the immorality we are facing daily in our lives. If you try to live
      by guidance of the Bible you will meet objection and diversion from those
      who would destroy our faith in the Lord and his teachings. This is where
      we must draw the line and stand our ground or we will all be in the pits
      of hades when Judgement day comes.

    • Joy

      It is no different than what we’ve had all along…What’s the difference between homosexuality and adultery? Is one sin greater than the other? We ALL have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.

      • Star Wright

        That is a true scripture statement.
        Blessings on u in Jesus name.
        Amen

  • SKULLTAKER

    Why not just Show these TWO Reprobates giving a Finger to GOD n the Bible ? GOD will NOT be MOCKED and his WRATH will be SPECTACULAR, count on it !

    • gerald Hughes

      I am a man with little in the way of religion.
      I do believe in God and understand that at some point, I will have to face Him and try to explain my short comings.
      Those people that invite this into their church, will also, have to do that.
      I really, really hope, that I don’t die at the same time as anyone in that church and I really, really, really hope that I don’t die at the same time as the two lesbians.
      I have no idea what can be worse than burning for eternity, but those people that face God and tell him that what he said, was wrong, and that, they had to change it, will find out and I don’t want to be there to learn about it.

      • SKULLTAKER

        AMEN MY BROTHER GERALD, JUST STAY STRONG ! GOD will deal with this !

      • Daniel Brofford

        Gerald your post was kind of funny in a way. I’m not laughing at you I just liked the way you said it. Listen though Gerald you cannot wait until you die and face God. You have to do it while you are on this side of eternity. You can talk to him now and explain your short comings. I for a long time thought if I can quit this and I can quit that then maybe I’ll be good enough for the free gift Jesus is offering us. After many many years I realized I could never do it on my own. I also by reading the bible and going to church realized that it is in fact a free gift. I can’t earn it I can’t do something for Jesus to feel excepted he is offering it to everyone of us for the same price. FREE!!! The hardest people to talk to about Jesus and their need for salvation is people that already think they are right with God. I know by you post that you know you have shortcomings like all of us but also the need to talk to Jesus. You can do it buddy. You don’t have to go to church to get it done you can go in your room or wherever and get on your knees and talk to Jesus. He wants that. God bless you.

    • Edward Cibener

      Especially to intolerant fools like yourself. Have a nice day!

      • jong

        Evil such as you is run out by believers. For all you have is lies being of the father of all lies. Satan.

        • Edward Cibener

          I’m evil? You do not even know me. If your church is so strong and moral, you have to worry about one gay jew like myself? Wow, didn’t know I rated that high on your radar (gaydar!) Have a nice day!

          • jong

            I do not have to I know your ilk and what you bring which is against GOD. And cancer starts with one cell to. Silly child.

    • Star Wright

      That is for sure.God will not be mocked.
      And those that will come to him.
      Will see His wrath.

  • SKULLTAKER

    This CHURCH should just put a big Bold Sign out front saying ” all hail satan ” – Because NO true Christian would or could Attend a Church like this !

    • James Maxwell

      I look at the location, Washington D.C, or better known as Sodom and
      Gomorra. It is filled with corruption and those who would destroy
      churches and our faith in God. We have seen the Democrat Socialist
      omit God from their party platform and God was only included after the
      Chairman at the 2008 convention when a floor vote was called by voice
      (The NO’s were louder than the Yea’s) but he said it passes. Of course the media did not report on that and many did not see that happen. We have all seen Christians trampled on to give sway to other groups who
      would remove any and all Christian symbol and faith from our land.
      They have even tried to claim that muslim were responsible for the
      founding or the United States and that they played a part in our
      Nation.

      • SKULLTAKER

        AMEN James my Brother, we live in Trying Times, but GOD has never LOST
        The FILTH peddlers will be Defeated, Stand n Stay Strong my Brother !

      • JT

        You are very right. I don’t know if people remember but when Obama went to Notre Dame, the Obama White House made them cover over anything that was Christian, that ment that they cover over a Cross, many Crosses. I have not and will never not remember that Notre Dame did not stand-up to a Godless Obama or his White House.

  • James Maxwell

    Homosexuality is a sin and you cannot change that. You do not support or
    praise the practice of homosexuality at no point in the Bible. You do not
    give credence to those who persist to live in sin. You do not hire those who
    live in sin to preach the Bible and try to teach others about the Bible. That is an
    oxymoron of the worse example. How can anyone who lives in sin preach
    the gospel and expect others to obey and follow those principles when they are
    living in an abomination of their own choosing? If this happened in my church
    I would get up, walk out and never return. I know several people who are
    homosexuals and they are wonderful people but that does not qualify them to
    preach the Bible when they are living in sin.

    • Martha Koonce Hughes

      My sentiments exactly….apparently those people have not read the Bible or either they do not believe what they read..sounds to me like they have NO personal relationship with Jesus……..I would NEVER attend that church !!

      • Star Wright

        Exactly! They need to read that homosexuals.
        Go against Gods word.
        And unless they repent
        And truly change their life style.
        They will go to Hell.And burn for all eternity.
        Amen

        • Edward Cibener

          You are such a charming person.

          • JT

            She said it hard, and it is the very truth. People all of us have got to get it in our heads and hearts. That it is we who have to change our ways, our hearts to meet God where He is. He along is God, He is Holy in all His ways. It is we that have sinned against Him. We do the changing, Not a Loving God who made away back to Him, through His Son, Jesus.

    • Well said James. Calvary used to be the parent church to the one I used to go to. What’s in the Bible goes and Paul, in his letters, speaks out against homo’s.

    • Daniel Brofford

      You are so right James. I’ve known homosexual people who were nice and would never mistreat them. I also would never allow someone living in sin to teach me or my family the word of God. I think only by being born again can you have the kind of discernment it takes to understand the bible and teach it to other people.

    • Edward Cibener

      I am sure that the Church would be better off if you left especially if they are teaching tolerance and love, qualities you obviously lack.

      • James Maxwell

        I feel sorry for you Edward, I follow the Bible best I can but
        a sin is a sin and not touchy feel good attempt to overlook
        it will ever change that. I do not wish them harm or any ill wishes but their are committing a sin and that is a fact.

      • Deplorable wizard

        Eddy, or is it Eddie,
        Isn’t it an contradiction to be a democrat these days?

        I mean, “tolerance”? You preach but don’t practice.

        It has to be tough going through life as a schizophrenic, how do you do it? Or you, how do YOU do it?

      • KayO

        Jesus Christ was never “tolerant” of sin. He forgives, but He never condones.

      • URNIdiot

        You need to learn what tolerance actually means. We are to treat all of God’s children with love and respect. We are to try to bring them to knowledge of their sin and ultimately to repent of that sin. We are never to accept and condone it. Tolerance…is what I have for you right now.

      • Dennis Stewart

        Is tolerating the intolerable an act of love? Is pampering perversion an act of love? If pacifying the perverted an act of love? Is justifying the unjustifiable an act of love? Is verifying the unverifiable an act of love?

    • ronjonmd

      James, When did you become the judge of people’s actions? I was taught that God is our ultimate judge and unless you are perfect and free of sin, you should not damn others with whom you disagree.

      • daddybull

        I do not know where you were taught your Bible lessons, but you certainly were not taught the truth about the contents of it. We do not damn them, their behavior does it. Are we to merely sit by and say or do nothing? That is to give implied consent…unless you are Amish. Read Romans chapter one. Ask yourself What does it SAY?
        What does it MEAN? How does it APPLY?

        • Joy

          I think the bible was provided for us to judge ourselves before we judge others. I don’t agree with homosexuality but I do believe God is doing something important that I don’t quite understand.

          For ALL have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.

          No one is saying we have to attend that church or endorse anything. But we can pray that God would reveal His way to them and open their eyes.

          • reasoning with facts

            First mistake when referring to the Bible is saying ” * I think* the Bible ” MEANS THIS OR THAT….. Calling sin a sin is not judging it is putting the spotlight on the sin ..And surely the Bible is GOD`s instrument that commands the *endorsement* of the teachings of Jesus Christ ! .

        • ronjonmd

          daddybull, what does being Amish have to do with anything?

      • JT

        The Bible teaching show that we can see what kind of tree it is
        Good, or uprights. We know if we are looking at an Apple or peach tree just by seeing it.

        • Joy

          Nothing is new to God. Not homosexuality or adultery. Jesus said in Matthew that he came to fulfill the law. Now if you have hatred toward your brother it is murder. If you have lust in your heart you commit adultery….etc. God removes the blinders off their eyes in His timing; His timing is not our timing. So again, how do we know God is not using this church and these women??? If they are living in sin, I don’t know many straight Pastors that are not also living in sin. How do we know that God could not find a righteous man to do this work to bring homosexuals out of their sin…couldn’t find one so he is using homosexuals to save homosexuals…then as they grow He plans to remove the blinders from their eyes???

    • Joy

      The sin of adultery is no worse and the churches accept people who cheated on their spouses. How is it any different for the baptist church to accept a male or female member who divorced because they cheated? Accepting them is the same as agreeing with them.

      • reasoning with facts

        Wrong ! Your sins are forgiven when you ask GOD to forgive you and return to your sin no more ! These women have not asked for forgiveness for their sin , but they continue to live in their sin !

        • Joy

          If God needs to reach the homosexual population; and He looks around for a loving sinless Christian that they will listen to, I truly don’t know where He would find one.

          • Joy

            YES…these are the religious people who screamed crucify Him

          • reasoning with facts

            Your first error is thinking there are sinless Christians !
            Romans 3:23 : “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” King James Version (KJV)

            { Romans 3:23 Context }

            (20) – Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the *knowledge of sin*. (21) – But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; (22) – Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: (23) – For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (24) – Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: (25) – Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; (26) – To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

          • Joy

            God looks for Christians who he can use to save others. Sinless was not the correct term. What does he do if he can’t find them?

      • JT

        There is a very big different. Yes, sin is sin to God all sin is against God. A person who might steal, adulterous but trying to live a Christian life will ask God for forgiveness then try not to sin again. A homosexual who ask God for forgiveness then try to live a Christian life is forgiven. But a person who keep on sinning by stealing, or adulterous, homosexuality, saying that the Bible, Church, or God is wrong and they have to change to meet my way of life. No way, God is the Holy and Righteous One. As far as I know it is only the homosexual groups that is saying that it is God who has to change to meet me in my way of life
        No Way.

        Exactly Joy, no one single is greater than the next sin. They are all equal. You who have used the Lords name in vain, or cheat on your spouse, or covet your nieghbor sin as much as homosexuals in God’s eyes. It is not your choice, but theirs wether they be gay or not. If you think they shouldn’t pastor, don’t attend that church!

        • Joy

          My main point is that God is in control, He is wanting to save ALL people regardless of the flavor of their sin. I’m not saying condone what you disagree on but a Pastor is a leader of their flock…what if their flock are the homosexuals? Not everyone has been a Christian who has studied the bible for 10 years. We have to start somewhere and let God work.

          • Star Wright

            Joy…that is true to a degree.
            The main point of
            Homosexuals going to church.Is to change.And turn from that lifestyle.
            As i stated before.The scriptures say.A woman is to be quite in church.And she is not to preach.
            As that is usurping a man.
            And JESUS said no to that.
            Correct!
            Have a blesst day in
            Jesus Christ
            Amen

        • Dennis Stewart

          Does God see children who occasionally sass their parents in violation of “thou shalt honor thy father and thy mother” [demonstrating obedience] the same as an equal to children who occasionally murder their parents?

          Does God see thieves who occasionally steal penny candy from candy stores in violation of “thou shalt not steal” the same as thieves like Bernie Madoff who occasionally stole hundreds of millions of dollars from those who trusted him as a financial adviser? All sins offend God yet some sins have a greater severity especially when they are at a greater frequency.

          • Scott Manon

            Do they Dennis, or is that your interpretation and how you see it? No one single sin is greater than another….and that is only how I see it. Only God will tell us on judgement day. Until then, these ladies aren’t hurting you or me and nobody HAS to go to their church. So why all the discussion?

          • Dennis Stewart

            You answered two questions that weren’t asked. Please go back and read the two separate questions both of which began with “Does God see” not what two insolent and impenitent homosexuals see.

            Keep in mind I John 5:16-17: “If anyone sees his brother sinning, if the sin is not deadly, he should pray to God and he will give him life. This is only for those whose sin is not deadly. There is such a thing as deadly sin, about which I do not say you should pray.”

            Thus there are deadly sins one of which is the Sin of Sodom also known as
            the CRIME AGAINST NATURE which has morphed into a CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY.

            Any one who justifies the grave sinner making the grave sinner easy and comfortable in committing the grave sin absent penitence will be judged as severely at judgement. We know what sins lead to perdition. Pampering the grave sinner isn’t love. It’s indifference mixed with cowardice. Silence isn’t golden. It’s yellow. Celebrating grave sin publicly is what did in Sodom and Gomorrah.

          And when a church does not have these.
          It is no longer a church.For the Glory us gone.
          How 😔

      • Dennis Stewart

        The Sin of Sodom is an abomination. Abomination means hate. God hates sodomy evidenced by sending the equivalent of nuclear bombs [fire and brimstone] reigning down on an entire city eviscerating it because not one was righteous. Not all sins are called abominations. Therefore, all sins – like all crimes – are not created equal. Sodomites can be forgiven when the admit to doing evil; show heartfelt contrition; and make firm purposes of amendment. Absent that they will suffer as did Sodom and Gomorrah when they leave this earth. If people truly cared about homosexuals [ a tiny 1.6 % of the general population] they wouldn’t be making them easy and comfortable in their grave sin. Rather, they would be leading of driving them out of the grave sin or away from the near occasion of the grave sin. Adultery is also a grave sin because it violates a covenant and destroys trust. Trust is love. Still, sodomy is vastly more grave because it makes the expansion of love impossible. It is a perverted misuse and abuse of sexual organs. Adultery is the misuse but not the abuse of sexual organs. The CRIME AGAINST NATURE is defined in the lexicon as: SODOMY. Given the sexually transmitted diseases; plagues and pandemics caused by sodomy, the abuse of sexual organs by homosexuals has turned genitals into deadly depopulating weapons. It is now both the CRIME AGAINST NATURE and a CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY. Satan loves sodomy because it is always lifeless and often lethal. Soldiers of Satan salute Sodomy which is the homosexual monogamy.

        • Joy

          I agree with what you are saying but Adultery is the misuse of sexual organs also. It is the beginning of a man having no boundaries…it leads to multiple sexual partners at once and then into homosexuality. It typically begins with lust in the heart, then an affair, then the abuse of children and then homosexuality. It ALL destroys families and children. Like many churches, the baptist men cover for each other.

          • Dennis Stewart

            The Crime Against Nature is defined by one and only one word which is Sodomy. Sodomy is the more grave sin because it uses male sexual organs with other males and female sexual organs with other females which is a depravity akin to flinging excrement at Go and rubbing it into his face. Adultery uses male sexual organs with females and female sexual organs with males which is the more natural act. You are most correct in that justifying adultery leads to graver sins like justifying sodomy then on to greater degenerate behaviors.

      • j. Tirado

        If an associate pastor at my church was commiting adultery, they would need to step down. Homosexuals are committing sin, are in sin, and cannot have a position like that in church. Most pastors in sin step down, they don’t receive a position like in this article while IN SIN!

        • Star Wright

          That is scripturaly true.Because it is what is said in the Bible.
          Amen

    • My country

      Amen

  • Ross Kuykendall

    They should be judged by the Bible. Homosexuality is adultery, which is sexual immorality. The Bible says that my best intentions are as filthy rags before a holy God. If the blood of Christ is applied to the life of a sinner, they become a new creation with a new nature. That nature desires to follow after Christ and His teachings, regardless of emotion or social desires. I didn’t write it. (1 Cor. 6:1 – 7:5 & Romans 1:16-32)

    • Edward Cibener

      Did you not hear of the Supreme Court Decision legalizing same-sex marriage in all 50 states? It is not adultery-get your definitions straight! (you’ll pardon the expression). And besides, you can belong to a church or synagogue without necessarily sharing every belief of every member-we are all individuals not drones, you know.

      • Martha Koonce Hughes

        God does not give a hoot about Supreme court decision…..this IS an abomination to a Holy God, and will be dealt with accordingly……apparently a LOT of ppl do not know the nature and characteristics of God, much less, his Holy Word….!!!

            Martha is quite correct, Edward. You are your own stumbling block into heaven. Your anger, vile retorts and ignorance, bear witness to the fact you’d much rather wallow in the filth and slime, rather than know the truth of Gods word. I was once that way. Hey, I wallowed in my self made pit, before I found Jesus Christ. Same could happen for you, if you only open your heart and listen.
            Perhaps I was open. I don’t recall that I was. I felt very low, actually. Then at the very moment I heard that massive yet gentle voice all around me and inside of me say, “IT’S TIME DAVE”, did I know then that God is real. There were no questions such as,” what was that”? “Who was that”? I knew who He was and is.

        How can they preach say about lying or theft which is a sin when they live in sin themselves and hold any credence to the sermon they preach. They may be fine people but I like many on here would walk out of the church the moment they started preaching on sin. I shall not judge them but it is up to me if I feel that God’s word has been twisted to fit a narrative I don’t believe in or was taught in church.

      • Daniel Brofford

        You have to believe in the bible. You cannot pick and choose what scripures you like and which ones you don’t. It is not us humans who are saying it’s wrong ( although our moral compass tells us homosexuality is wrong because it would not feel natural ) but it’s the bible that tells us its wrong. So even though we are individuals with our own minds we can all read and comprehend what the bible says.

        • Edward Cibener

          The bible was written by humans-and humans can be wrong and out-of-kilter on so many levels. Mankind has produced Beethoven, Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde-all great men in their own fields-biblical interpretations is again subject to human misconceptions.

            The Bible is NOT the final word on doctrine. Jesus is the Word of God, not the bible. Jesus never promised us a bible to learn except the Old Testament Scriptures. We are to spiritually discerning to find Jesu in our reading. Jesus also taught that His followers were to wait in the Holy City until they were filled with the HOLY SPIRIT. From whom we receive all our instruction in God’s ways and desires. It was centuries before the Bible was published and very few on earth could even read. The HOLY SPIRIT also shares the gifts of God and the Nature of God to his followers. READ IT.

            GOD gave divine inspiration to men to write the Holy Bible. And GOD is very clear on homosexuality and that it is against his will. In fact it is one of the very few sins that demands death and those doing the killing(not murder in this case) are blameless

            blood shall be upon them. Its pretty obvious at least in this case its bodily and spiritual

          • William Manners

            If you open your heart and let the Spirit in, he will guide you and show you the truth of the Bible so your interpretations will be clear, not misconceptions. If you read the Bible with the mind of man you can mislead yourself.

        The Supreme Court of America is not the Court you will be judged by on the last day and has nothing to do with Faith in God or the Spirit or the teachings of Jesus Christ and therefore does not rule the Church or define the doctrine professed in the Bible. If the Bible says it is adultery, it is adultery as far as God and the Church are concerned. If you don’t believe in the Bible then you are not a member of the congregation! You are just a visitor. If what you learn in Church appeals to you you can change and become a member.

      • JT

        The Supreme Court, got it Wrong. The Judge’s who voted to legalizing same-sex marriage will one day stand before God who is the Highest Judge. They will have to give an account to God for going against Him and His Word. As Christians we are to keep the law. But when that law is out of line with God and His Word then we will work to make that bad law a right law. If we can’t, then we follow God and His Way, not man.

          The law of this land is not a king or a court. It is a document. The Constitution of the USA is ours. I have read it many times.There is no place to suggest homosexuality as being an inalienable right any more that prostitutiion

    Not a real church at all. More likely a social gathering place because it certain they don’t teach or adhere to the Word of God. Would not want to be the leadership of that “church” on judgment day. They need to read Romans 1: 26-32 and particularly v 32.

    Just on of the goals within the COMMUNIST TAKEOVER of America read into the Congressional Record on January 16, 1963 is: “present homosexuality, promiscuity and degeneracy as normal, natural and healthy.” Bingo!

    • Edward Cibener

      Stupid-Communism persecuted Homosexuals mercilessly, as did many Western countries until recently-what are you talking about?

      • Dennis Stewart

        You are dense. The reason the Communists had this goal was to achieve it in order to weaken and destroy America from within. This goal is just one of 44 others which have been fully achieved thus reflecting the premeditated and orchestrated rotting of america from the inside out. If homosexuality was normal, natural and healthy, why pray tell would it ever need to be presented as normal, natural and healthy? Homosexuality promiscuity and degeneracy are on in the same. Thus the need to infect the USA with its filth and perversion in order to cave in the USA from the inside out. The most amazing part of one of the biggest lies ever told is that there is no such thing as a homosexual. All there are are boys and girls who eventually become men an women…along the way some of whom when groomed by perverts fall into their perversion which is the only way so called homosexuals can reproduce themselves. The homosexual [sodomy gene] lie has long ago been rebuked and debunked as a fraudulent creation. Nevertheless, even if it did exist would give no credence to pampering it given the havoc and horror it encourages and expects. It’s merely a cowardly excuse to justify the unjustifiable and sell and spread a misery love company agenda. Satan’s soldiers salute sodomy. Sodomy is always lifeless and often lethal; always fruitless and often fatal. That not love. It’s hate!

          That is not true-Gays, Lesbians, Transgender have been persecuted in most so-called civilized countries-it has little to do with ideology and everything to do with tolerance and understanding.

          • Edward Cibener

            I do not have to do anything. For me procreation is a priviledge for those who will bring loving, caring, and intelligent people into the world-not merely to populate it.

          • jong

            Yep typical liberal homosexual. You can not procreate so you must recruit little children into your disgusting life style. Again putting you in the immoral, unethical and UnGODLY class.

      • jong

        Wrong again child. YAHWEH is not considered to be “THE” name of GOD but, one he is known by. But, then again liberalism and ignorance go hand in hand.

        • Edward Cibener

          The greatest universities and cultural centers are run by liberals-with advanced degrees and career accomplishments, like myself. Conservatives mostly appeal to lower middle-class and the poor who are so ignorant of the world it is a joke.

          • jong

            Tell that to Freeman Dyson child. I hold three Phd’s myself. So your “lower education” is a joke. In fact most people with upper level degrees find you disgusting.

  • Russell Lissuzzo

    GOD will deal with the “people” as far as a Sin goes. As a Human Being I believe homosexuality, lesbianism or any of the other 27 definitions of sexuality are UNNATURAL, SICK AND PERVERTED. But, anyone who fits into any of those categories, is FREE to do so. Anyone who physically attacks them is an A**HOLE. Anyone that verbally attacks them HAS THE RIGHT TO DO SO!

    • Edward Cibener

      GOD believes in love-you make the idea of a loving and caring creator into a Mafia chieftain-SICKO!

      • jong

        Homosexuality is hardly love. It is rather a mental disorder that has a
        person controlling another. Love is a two way street child. In
        homosexuality its not about Love such as GOD gives but, one persons satisfaction that only causes pain. True love that comes from a man and a woman in the act can translate to children.

        • Edward Cibener

          Homosexuality for me and millions of others is the highest form of love-I love my husband a lot more than I love you.

          • jong

            Again “love” has nothing to do with your life style. Control however does.

    These ‘married’ butches are NOT married. God (libs hate that) and the Bible define marriage as 1 man and 1 Woman.

    • Edward Cibener

      How do you know what”God” says-suppose the LGBTQ community dares to think that God might speak to them-or are you and your bigoted opinions greater than others-you are the blasphemer!

      • Publius40

        I do not understand how it is possible to express a belief in God, and deny His Holy Word which is expressed in the Holy Bible. Until He comes out with a new edition that changes what He has stated in no uncertain words, I will accept His Words as God’s instructions.

        I do not believe the Bible is a Chinese menu where a person gets to pick and choose what he will religiously follow. We are warned against doing this in multiple places in the Bible – for example Revelation 22:18-19 says, “For I testify unto everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book, if anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; And if anyone takes away from the words of this book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, and from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”

        The people responsible for bringing this into His House will be dealt with by God. I personally would not set foot in that “church”.

      • charlie

          • David Girard

            Yah, I think so…people like you ARE the problem, you can’t mind your own business…lol

      • Daniel Brofford

        God is speaking to them but they are not listening because God is not saying what they want to hear. Read the bible that is Gods word. He is talking through the bible. He also talks to your heart. That is one reason I believe that the suicide rate is about 3 times for the homosexuals as it is for heterosexuals. They know what they are doing is wrong but the devil is making them so preverded you know the old saying it feels so good it must be wrong. I cannot as a straight person understand that but the devil makes all of us do wrong things until we repent and turn out lives over to Jesus.

        • Edward Cibener

          The suicide rate is 3 times higher because the bigotry and hatred of people, including relatives, drives them to it. Don’t forget the facts next time you make a statement on here! By the way, San Francisco gays and lesbians could care less about your opinion anyway.

          • daddybull

            How true…they do not care…they have traded the message of the Bible for their own inventions. So God has said to have at it, and understand that you will get the rewards of your choices. “Having considered themselves to be wise, they have become vain and foolish in their own thoughts and actions.
            And so, they are without excuse. It is their own choice to thumb their nose at God.

      • jong

        GOD has spoken to them as he does to all of us. And he has been ignored obviously since they believe that they can do anything they want and call it “good”

  • ChuckW

    The “practice” of homosexuality (as opposed to having same-sex feelings) IS a sin. As one who’s personally dealt with same-sex attraction, I stand on God’s word. “Practicing” homosexuals/lesbians should never be leading a church.

    • Edward Cibener

      Why not? Are you better than them to judge their lives? The only people who should not lead churches are bigots like yourself! Have a nice day! Come out of the closet, you’ll feel better!

      • jong

        Poor child GOD has given us rules to live under and therefore we can judge when people are not living up to them. Then again you are a loser

      • ChuckW

        If you were on trial (guilty or not) and you discovered that the person representing you did not have a law degree, would you say “That’s okay. I’m not going to judge that person”? Willfully violating God’s word does not qualify one to lead His church.
        Not in the closet. Have been speaking out publicly against the radical homosexual community’s attempts to impose their sexual ideology on this country with my local school board, my state legislators, and the church I’ve attended for over 40 years. For speaking out publicly at church against the new minister (a LGBT social justice warrior) for violating Methodist Discipline by performing a same-sex marriage last spring, she emailed that I was banned from the church. That is the ONLY discrimination I’ve ever experienced as a person with a same-sex attraction abnormality.
        Please don’t confuse name calling with the ability to carry on a civil discussion.

      • daddybull

        Your replies are obvious indications that you accept no authority higher than yourself.
        The idea of calling good as bad, and bad as good is as big a lie as the first one when your leader said, “Surely you will not die!” I cannot imagine a builder not having a standard unit of measurement, or a pilot who does not watch his oil pressure , fuel level, compass, and a couple of other ones. There are many things in life which have standards. Pascal said as a wager, “If you are right, I have lost nothing, If I am right, you have lost everything.”

    • SKULLTAKER

      AMEN CHUCK , Glad you came to the Light , GOD bless you my Brother !

  • charlie

    since the church system of men is not authorized by the new testament, the hireling pastors with their clergy / laity, and other worldly ways are all contrary to scripture, it is clear God is turning them all over to their anti-God reprobate minds. Maybe finally He is finally allowing their system of men;s doctrine to self implode. The new testament has NO CLERGY AND NO “CHURCH SYSTEM.
    time to return to scripture and GET OUT AND AWAY FROM THE APOSTATE CHURCH SYSTEM OF MEN FOR GOOD.

  • jong

    It basically comes down to this. We all sin. And in that we ask GOD for forgivenss of those sins. Homosexuals on the other hand believe they have not sinned and therefore are in direct opposition of GOD. No church can be called such that allows this.

  • Ed Lundgren

    This church is a violater of the very word of God. It also shows how the chief adversary of God, Satan the Devil, has infiltrated the church and working hard to overturn the truth of godly values and install his own moral values in his twisted ways.

  • Rick D.

    Having attended Calvary Chapel services for 10+ years, I am utterly appalled by the decision to employ those individuals whose beliefs and practices are the antithesis of Biblical principals. I’m sure that Chuck Smith, who founded C.C. in Cal., would definitely find this to be unacceptable.

  • Concerned OT Resident

    This kind of blatant homosexual disregard for God’s creation goes back to Biblical times, this is nothing new. So as Sodom and Gomorrah went into oblivion, so shall this den of iniquity they want to call a “church” and along with anyone who attends it. No different than the despicable “church” of scientology. False teaching is false teaching and God will judge them both equally.

    • Edward Cibener

      Whose God? Most false teaching concerning the world has come from mainstream religion, which denies facts left and right-that is why we have universities and public schools as the norm, and rightly so.

    James Maxwell according to scripture you are 100% right on. As one raised as a Baptist, I am really offended by the actions of Calvary Baptist Church. Scripture also speaks to the latter times – as it was in the days of Noah and Sodom and Gomorrah — -/ are we there? I wonder how these ladies teach 1st Corinthians 6 vs 9-10 — among many other scriptures??

    • Star Wright

      I would not call them ladies.
      For they are Lesbians.
      As for them teaching.
      They are teaching in darkness.
      Because the Holy Spirit is gone
      The angel of the church is gone.
      And the candle is not lite.
      So there for, they are teaching in darkness.
      All the Glory is Gone.

    Oh this is priceless, God does have a sense of humor. The men of the baptist church must be squirming….after all, how weird would it feel to drop your wife off at Sunday School, go do your prostitute then come back for church to hear two lesbians tell you what to do or not do. Serves them right for teaching the men in the back room that it’s ok with God for you to have a wife and a mistress. Lol.

    Herein lies what`s wrong with churches in the USA today ! Instead of opening the doors of the church and sending out the gospel message to the world ; the church has now opened its` doors and let the world and its` sins come into the church !

  • Joy

    I just love reading this feed, it is priceless…there are many who have a clue but then you have a “Christian” with the name Skullhead and URNIDIOT. I received a personal attack from a “christian”. I’m sure they think I’m a lesbian because I’m fat. Even though his wife is probably a tank and his belly is so big that he hasn’t seen his small package in years.

    No wonder the world is confused as to why people go to church. The moment they leave the church building, they behave worse than their heathen friends.

    God used denominations to attract people to Him. EVERY religion has one or two truths and the rest is to create a society. Some churches do their job and use their organizations for ministry in America and across the world. Other churches teach and dictate to keep the money flowing. But just remember, if you attend a church, be there to worship God alone and get closer to Him. People will always let you down, Jesus won’t.

    The first commandment is that you should have NO other God before you….has the church become your god? Has impressing people and gaining status become your god?

    God wants to save ALL people. How do YOU know He is not using this church and THESE pastors to bring other homosexuals to Him. He certainly can see that YOU are worthless in this effort. We don’t know what He has planned. He may reveal certain things to them thru the Holy Spirit at the right time.

    If he uses people like you with evil in your hearts and hatred coming out of your typing fingers….why do you think He can’t use them?

    Please let it be known that there are many so called Baptists churches all over the world. I call them so called because they maybe part of the CBF. They may call themselves Baptist, when in truth they have been removed from all records and in fact they have been told to leave the fellowship of the Baptist family because they have left all teaching of the Christian faith and no longer believe the true teaching of the Bible, God Holy Word. This group of people and others like them not only in the Baptists but sadly most Denominations around the world are having to push back the ungodly, false teaching of this and many other false teaching that are finding their way into the true church of Jesus Christ.

    Activism in only allowed for issues encouraged and blessed by our rulers.

    It is great for a nation to protect its minorities from being overwhelmed by the majorities. However, when activism overreach to the extent of oppressing the majority by the minorities than the honorable effort has been corrupted.

    For example can we have a fashionable trend in our culture to encourage people to demand MERRY CHRISTMAS instead of HAPPY HOLLDAYS? Of course no because the drivers of our trends and opinion making HATE Christmas and Christianity. These same haters are encouraging homosexuality and division in our society as in divide and conquer mechanism.

    People of certain uncommon behaviors or culture must be left live their lives in peace, but, that is not to say that such uncommon characteristics must be forced down our throats. Again, I must exaggerate to illustrate my point. Let us assume my clan enjoys eating dogs laced by dog crap, it would be acceptable that our culture do not let dog lovers to burn my house? But, it would unacceptable for our culture to force our media to broadcast our abnormal meal practice and praise it as something honorable worthy of others to emulate.

    If “presenting homosexuality promiscuity and degeneracy as normal, natural and healthy” was good for America, why pray tell would it be one of the goals within the Communist Takeover of America???

    God says this in
    1 Cor.6:9 about homosexuals.
    And
    1 Tim. 2:12 about women preaching in the church.
    This is such fun.Talking with all of you folks.
    And bringing the
    Scriptures in to the conversation.
    All of you have a blesst day in
    Jesus

    Help me understand: 1) Why is it that homosexuals who represent a tiny 1.6% of the general population account for EXPONENTIALLY higher share of sexually transmitted diseases? The CDC has shown [as just one example] that 94.5 % of the HIV diagnosis among teenage boys [13-19] are directly linked to homosexual acts and behaviors. Why is that? Homosexual men have been shown to have as high as 1,000 + homosexual partners in there extremely truncated lifespans; homosexual women have been shown to have as high as 500+ partners in their ultra short life spans. Isn’t that promiscuity? The average life span for all people in the USA is 78.98 years. The life span for homosexuals is 42.79 years. Is that what love looks like?

  • Star Wright

    William Manners: what you are saying is so true.
    If there are homosexuals or lesbians leading the congregation.
    Then there is no:
    No angel
    No Holy Spirit
    No Glory
    And no light.
    And that means, people are being taught in darkness.
    I am not Judgeing.
    Just stating what scripture says
    Amen

    You are right.

    It is a true shame how Lucifer has clouded so many peoples eyes that a Baptist church will hire a lesbian couple to teach (Gods’ word)? If I belonged to that church I would not give another penny and would run to a church that would teach The Word of God as it is given to humanity thru the BIBLE. This Church will pay for their mistakes they are making. I pray for the congergation that they will pray to the one and only God and run as fast as they can to a true Bible teaching church.

    Isaiah 61:1-7….the spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the broken-hearted to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners….and provide for those who grieve in Zion…to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of despair………instead of your SHAME you will receive a double portion….and everlasting joy will be yours.

    I really hope that the babies in Christ don’t see the wrath from those who have been Christians for years. They have forgotten how to be teachers and mentors to the baby Chistians…those who do not yet see the errors of their ways.

    When my Christian boyfriend and I lived together because it made sense financially when we moved to another state. A Christian mentor my boyfriend looked up to convinced him that marriage was a position of the heart and you didn’t need the approval from the state…we desired to go to a local church and they put us on the youth group worship team. The leadership accepted us and prayed for us while some parents really complained…but we never knew till later….we began to feel guilty and I was ready to not go to church…then my boyfriend proposed and we got married because we realized that was what God wanted.

    Nobody shamed us into coming out of that sin….they loved us and prayed that the Holy Spirit would convince us to do what was right.

    You can say whatever you want…God will save the homosexuals with or without you.

    That is correct. since the apostles died the Church has been in a state of apostasy, all have fallen away from the true teachings of Christ. It was Joseph Smith who translated the scriptures to correct them.Jesus and Lucifer are brothers and we are all brothers and sister of Jesus. God is a person with flesh and bones. And you are correct god did not have sexual relations with Mary, it would not have been an immaculate conception if He had. Right again God is not married to some female god who decided to create the universe. God decided to create the universe. And the Bible and the Book of Mormon do agree with each other.
