Homosexual groups take campaign into US mega-churches

A coalition of pro-homosexual groups led by Soulforce, is targeting six U.S. mega-churches in an effort to foster dialogue about Christian views on homosexuality. The Churches chosen for the campaign are: Lakewood Church (pastored by Joel Osteen), The Potter's House (T.D. Jakes), Hope Christian Church (Harry Jackson), New Birth Missionary Baptist Church (Eddie Long)Willow Creek Community Church (Bill Hybels), and Saddleback Church (Rick Warren).
According to the Soulforce website, "lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people" and their families will attempt to visit with members, pastors, and leaders of the churches to talk about religious views on homosexuality; hoping "to begin a process of changing hearts and minds" in those churches.
While there certainly is nothing wrong with Christians having dialogues with homosexuals or any other group for that matter (what better opportunity to preach the Gospel!), it certainly is something else allowing specially prepared agents of anti-christian values to bring their doctrine into the Church and be given free unfettered access to church members – including children and young converts! Except of course, if the leaders of those Churches don’t really believe homosexuality is a sin that can lead those caught in its throes to hell! (see Romans 1:26-27, 1 Corinthians 6:9, Eph 5:5-6 however!)
