Real Christianity was demonstrated by Dr. Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury this week. His statement has, in some way, raised my hopes that the Golden Rule will once again come to characterize Christianity, as opposed to its most vocal proponents' scorched earth policy of apocalyptic blood lust that justifies hate, bigotry, and violence.
While not yet ready to bless homosexuality, Williams equated hostile words with real violence against gays, "warning that such language could lead to suicide or even murder."
"...violence in word or deed and prejudice against homosexual people were unacceptable and sinful behaviour for Christians.”
Williams, is, of course, being lambasted by conservatives for being out of touch with mainstream Christians. So, I guess my question to those mainstream Christians is this: Show me the verse where Jesus condemned homosexuality. I can't seem to find it in my copy of the Beatitudes.
