So this afternoon I turned on the radio and happened on a discussion in one of the stations here in the Bay Area. I think the title of the show was Bottom Line. Admittedly, I tuned in a little late on the discussion and so did not get the whole gist of it, but it seems there is this lesbian who "became" a "Christian" while in a lesbian marriage thru the ministry of a Mennonite preacher. Now, before her conversion, while 'married' to another woman, they adopted a child whom they raised together back in the early 2000's and since she is now a "Christian" she was concerned about the child being raised in an unconventional home so they went through a custody hearing and custody of the child was granted to the other "spouse", not her. (this is getting to be ridiculous, calling people of the same sex 'spouses'. can't get used to it). So, it seems she consulted her pastor who advised her to go to Canada with the child (kidnapping, right there) and from there fly over to Nicaragua and raise the child there. She did exactly that. Suits flew left and right and end result is that now she is a fugitive, and the pastor is facing at the very least three years in jail for aiding and abetting a fugitive. He says that's fine with him because he is willing to lay down his life for the sheep, like Christ laid His for His sheep. Callers for the most part approved of the action of both the flight and the "sacrifice" of the pastor. Otrhers, of course, did not. I do not. First of all, the child was adopted by BOTH of them, while they were supposedly legally married, and just because she says she is now a Christian doesn't negate that unscriptural but legal union. Now, when I tuned in the host was saying something along the line of scripture where "if the unbelieving depart......." but why the heck should scripture be used on a very unscriptural situation. I think her pastor gave her wrong advice. To me, it's like wanting to have her cake, and eat it, too. What do y'all think ?
