The Sins of the Church

Churches are places for sin sick souls.

The Apostle Paul reminds us that everyone has fallen short of the glory of God.

So is there any surprise when there is a huge sin buried in the body of Christ? After all, though divinely inspired and wrought, the Church is also influenced by the worse parts of society, e.g., racism, sexism, continued poverty in the world, etc.

No surprise but a sense of woefulness as I, a Christian, ordained in the PCUSA, read this tidbit on, about a child rejected from a Catholic church run school because of the lesbian parents.

BOULDER, Colo. — A Catholic school in Colorado is kicking out a preschooler because the child's parents are lesbians.

The child will not be allowed to re-enroll next year at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic School. The Denver Archdiocese posted a statement Friday that the parents are "living in open discord with Catholic teaching."

The statement says students in Catholic schools are expected to have parents who abide by policies of the school and church. The Archdiocese said students with gay parents in Catholic schools would become "confused." Click here for more.

The Church is wrong.

The Church is not the loving arms of Jesus unto all.

The Church has and is sinning.
