    ... Just disrupt a church service, at a church, I might add, that bears no resemblance to the certifiable gay-bashing bunch in Topeka, Kan.


    I think the gay community needs to quit fighting the fact that many denominations will consider homosexuality a sin. I don't see drunks disrupting a church service because churches think alcohol is a sin.

    To be fair, the drunks are probably sleeping one off.

    Well, in the South, we have church on Wednesday nights.
    That's why you never schedule a high school sports event that night below the Virginia-North Carolina line.

    I don't see alcoholics being barred from having equal rights as others. Tell you what, when people who have been arrested for public drunkeness or a DUI are barred by a state from getting married, you go ahead and let us know.

    these folks should hold their "bash back" parties at the state house, not their local church....I'm sure this really swayed the congregation to their side.

    Actually, Hondo, a lot of gays don't give a rat's ass whether some sects consider homosexuality a sin.

    They just want the same rights as the Bible Thumpers, many of whom seem bound and determined to deny gays those rights.

    Maybe if the evangelicals just minded their own business, they wouldn't have protests in their churches

    As KO said, "Why do you care?"

    Drunkenness is actually a socially acceptable response to a separation or a divorce.

    It's also a great excuse for when you wind up married unexpectedly (see: Spears, Britney, and Alexander, Jason).

    Churches think alcohol is a sin? Where?

    Many churches in my area host AA meetings and other 12-step programs three or fouor times a week... night sessions, lunchtime sessions for business people, Saturday sessions.

    Hondo's from the South. They have church service on Wednesday evenings.

    Use those awesome deductive skills, Spnited. :)

    Some do, trust me.

    And the AA meeting thing falls under the "hate the sin, love the sinner" line of thinking.

    Or in some churches, they see it a part of their social responsibility to reach out to the sick and the less fortunate.
