Same sex in the city read online
Chip and Joanna Gaines' series Fixer Upper is one of the most popular shows on HGTV.The couple has recently graced the cover of People magazine; their book, The Magnolia Story, has been on the New York Times' best-seller list for five weeks; and they were the subject of a long profile in Texas Monthly that credited them with revitalizing the city of Waco, Texas, where the show is set and where their businesses are located.However, that's not always the case, Whether I’m writing about joining the mile high club, attending a “kissing party”, or the joy that comes with not caring about pubic hair, I often address my sex life directly.Sometimes, I even dispense unsolicited advice based on personal experiences on matters such as staying faithful, and which awkward scenarios couples should expect to face in the sack.HGTV is proud to have a crystal clear, consistent record of including people from all walks of life in its series."Fixer Upper has fans of all stripes: Christians, feminists, and LGBT viewers have all found something to love in the Gaineses.So in the absence of a response from them or their representatives, it's worth looking at the severe, unmoving position Seibert and Antioch take on same-sex marriage.After talking about Genesis, and saying that marriage is between "one man and one wife," Seibert emphasizes the fixedness of this idea. So if someone were to say, 'Marriage is defined in a different way,' let me just say: They are wrong," he says from the pulpit to applause from the congregation. God defined masculine and feminine, male and female, not you and I."Seibert then goes on to discuss sin. Physically, sexually, mentally." He also says that gay pornography deserves some of the blame.
I've worked with people for over 30 years — I have seen hundreds of people personally change their direction of same-sex attraction from a homosexual lifestyle to a heterosexual lifestyle. If not, God will have another way for you."His sermon is available to watch online in full.
When reached by phone, Antioch Community Church's communications director pointed me toward the church's website under "beliefs," where it states, "Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime." The church has held the same position since Seibert founded it 17 years ago, she said.
And in June 2015, on the Sunday after the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage in all 50 states, Seibert scrapped what was going to be the program at Antioch that day in order to reaffirm where the church stands, whatever the law of the land may be. The lie: Homosexuality is not a sin." He urges compassion for the sinners, though, because "the statistics say that 90% of people who are in a full-blown homosexual lifestyle were abused in some way.
Same-sex marriage has now become legal in the Republic of Ireland, after new legislation came into effect on Monday.
The law was passed after a referendum in May, when the Irish state became the first in the world to legalise same-sex civil marriage by popular vote.
