Like everyone else, can be blinded- not by satan, but by their own ignorance.
You are right Snuffy- there is a gap between what the church and those in it say and what they do. In a perfect world, there would be more action and less talk. More love and less condemnation.
Antiochian has made perhaps the most important point. Your youth 'leader' is not displaying even a basic knowledge about human sexuality. It's as though the 19th and 20th and 21st centuries didn't happen. This is flat world thinking! As well, neither belief in God or the Devil is necessary for treating one another with kindness.
You don't have to debate those who are less educated that you. In fact, that isn't a debate at all, but something or an argument.
Doesn't matter if you are gay, straight, blue or green- you deserve the respect and kindness accorded to every living being.
Stand tall sister.
Be the love you seek.
