Strickland: "Embracing Homosexuals Is Taking Us All Down"

Tyler Bishop Joseph Strickland, Texas, commented on the Ex-Bishops' Synod working document that seeks to “welcome” polygamists, adulterers and homosexuals (, July 2).

He explained that truly welcoming these sinners means to lead them to repentance, "It means changing, it means awakening to the truth.”

The Church cannot accept those who live in homosex sin "as they are", otherwise "this is taking us all down.”

Those who identify as homosexuals lose themselves in it, Strickland noted, “If God is taken out, we don’t know who we are.”

Strickland explained, "and it comes from disconnecting from God” and it makes no sense to considers "that masquerade" as love and inclusiveness.
