Pisco, you’ve made me speechless!
From ePisco Sours, here:
One last thought about General Convention:
Abraham was praised for offering his son Isaac as a sacrifice simply because God said so. Did anyone think to ask Isaac about it?
At least in the end, God provided a ram to be an acceptable substitute, because human sacrifice is abhorrent to him. And if God is now calling for LGBT people to be bound up as a sacrifice for his glory, shouldn’t we trust in him also to provide a way out, to show us that he really doesn’t want a sacrifice of broken and despairing lives on his altar?
