What do you think of the First Baptist Church in Downtown Dallas holding a workshop on more compassionate ministry to gay people, even though the church still condemns homosexuality?
“I think it is a good sign the Baptist Church is hurting right now. Membership must be dropping.”
“That sounds pretty good to me for a Southern Baptist style of church.”
“I guess everybody has a right to their own belief. There are other churches to go to. If you don’t like the way they worship, go somewhere else.”
J Stephen Nichols
“I think we should all have the same rights as everyone else, but unfortunately it’s not like that in America.”
“I’m from San Francisco. I come from a different space, so I think it is still a little backward.”
