Satan using a gay sister as a pawn to stop a heterosexual Christian from entering into a ministry position? It's just another day on the Focus on the Family message boards:
Homosexual sister [FOF]
Some blow up aero beds, while others put moral plastic on the furniture so as to not let the devilish lesbian ooze to permeate the fabric. We all have our own ways of dealing with sibling visits. The important thing is to self-determine that your hospitality is non-rude, non-codemnatory, and non-judgmental before your guests even arrive, before Satan steps in and tells others that your actions speak louder than your own self-professed words.
"I dont hate my sister! I just dont want her to ever be happy!"

Life must just be so hard for such a histrionic noodle-brain, even before the voices in her head start battling.
Shame on her sister for succumbing to the naughty goat-man's lady-lures just to complicate the poor woman's life all these years later!
If only she had foreseen that her entire life has been orchestrated simply to serve as a test of faith for her heterosexual sibling...

I think her biggest problem is that she believes that she has a say is what her sister does. By screaming that, "I CANNOT condone," what she is saying it, "the BITCH won't do what I TELL HER to do." And, that is typical of the mindset of those who oppose us. It is that they think they have the right to force their mania onto everyone. They can say, "I love my sister," until they are blue in the proverbial face. But conditioning that "love" on a requisite strict adherence to the myopic, rage tinged view of a bigot, just proves that it isn't love at all.

I'm certain you have all heard of Michele Bachman, the Minnesota congressional crazy. They don't come any more homophobic than she is. As a state senator, she introduced legislation for a constitutional amendment to prohibit same gender marriage year after year. Her sister is a lesbian.

Personally, if I was the lesbian sister of this twit, I would have NOTHING whatsoever to do with her. I read this thread and these people are really "not well" as they used to say. I agree that this NOT "condoning" is a form of control. "How DARE my sister make choices of which I do not approve!" This woman doesn't love her sister--who is the one attempting to force her views down another person's throat?

I'd like to know more about these restrictions she placed. Her lack of an explanation about those is very telling. To actually think that her sister is being used as a tool of Satan to test her faith. How narcissistic is that? If either of my brothers ever pulled something like this on me, I'd have stormed out after punching him in the face.

I held my nose and registered at that site to post a reply. It was very kind and respectful. I mentioned the Biblical imperative to extend hospitality, and said that if the sister lives with her girlfriend as a spouse, she (or he; the writer) should ask herself how she would wish to be treated in such a situation, remembering Matthew 7:12 and Luke 6:31 (the "do unto others..." verses). I said extending the hospitality of sharing a room does not mean she has to like the situation, but that it would show respect for the sister, and would be the beginning of a foundation of mutual respect upon which to build their relationship.
What do you be the idiot moderators over there don't even allow my reply to be posted?

This is very sad, but I hope people know that there are others, like me, who have a very different take on ministry. I am in the ordination process, and I love and affirm my sister, who is a lesbian. She is my hero, and she makes my ministry stronger.
