"And hopefully, one day this will no longer be an issue within the church"
Hi Helen, I guess there are some folks in the church who need a guarantee that Jesus won't condemn us for not speaking against homosexuality. The only person who can give or withhold that guarantee is Jesus Himself, since He will be the judge, according to the Book of Revelations. You will remember, if you have ever read the Bible that He said there will be people who call him "Lord" but that He does not recognize [Matt 7:21].
An eternity in hell is too much of a chance to take, I am sure you will agree?
