    After posting, I saw an advertisement that said, "A Gay Friendly Church?" Why is that being advertised?

    Is your church a "goy" (mispelling intentional) church?

    I'm sure they mean that they are friendly toward happy people.

    Every church should be sinner-friendly. All sinners should be welcome. It's not necessary to be unfriendly to sinners in order to combat the sin.

    But being friendly to sinners is not what being a "Gay friendly" church is about. It has to do with the acceptance of homosexuality as a life style in opposition to what the Word of God says.

    Agreed...as long as your second sentence is clearly understood.

    Right. Words mean things.

    I wouldn't lead or attend a church that was hateful to any group of folks caught up in sin.

    But "gay-friendly," in every instance I've run in to it, has in some manner involved endoresment or equivocation in some way.
