Mother Being Forced To Choose Between Daughter And Church??
Reader, I'm sorry but when you're a member of a church, you agree to the bylaws and doctrine of that church. If you don't agree with it, then move to a church that does share your belief. Why would you associate with a church that had different beliefs than you?
A Collegedale, Tenn., resident Linda Cooper has been asked to leave a church she has attended for six decades because she would not publicly condemn her daughter’s lesbian lifestyle in front of the congregation.
In my opinion, she did not choose between her daughter and her church, she chose between being a member of something she didn't believe in and her daughter... They are not judging the mother- they are holding to the beliefs they have and want no mistake to be made as to what the church's doctrine is. The church didn't break up the family, nor did they try to - this family chose to have beliefs outside of the church's doctrine. There are PLENTY of churches that share this woman's belief.
