Where Church and Gay Intersect

I was at this intersection recently. Literally. Take a look at the pics below. As I jogged by during a lunch break, I thought it was somehow ironic that the street is divided, Gay one way, and Church the other. Seems quite relevent in America today. The issue of homosexuality is a hot topic, from the church’s stance, to the Defense of Marriage Act (started by Bill Clinton back in the 90s), to the US military.  

A few days after snapping the pictures below, I came across an interesting part of the Bible that seems to be just as relevent as the road intersection. The verses below, as I think about the ongoing discussion of gay rights, the goverment, and the church, this seems to hold some bearing on what God thinks. I know it’s more complex than this, but read this and feel free to comment below. 

There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.
