Couple Walks Out During Sermon.

I am sorry if some people don't understand nor get the purpose of a sermon....Sermons may have any number of purposes, but essentially they are intended to convict us in our hearts that we are a lost people who are in need of a Savior.... As an individual who grew up in and around the black church... it hasn't always been easy for me to sit in the pew why the pastor was stepping on my toes...It hurts!..I remember in my late 20's I made a (stupid) decision to moved in with my boyfriend...I knew this was wrong! and I also knew the church did not embrace this lifestyle....So whenever the pastor would do a sermon on fornication, shacking up or living with a man before marrying him... I knew in my heart of heart that that particular sermon was for me...However,I didn't leave the church because of the pastor sermon...Now, I read an article by Lou Chibbaro Jr
in which he states.... That the pastor of Greater Mount Calvary Holy Church in Brentwood reportedly said the following to his congregation on Jan. 3: 'Sex is only pleasing to God in the marriage bed, and the marriage bed is a man and...a woman!...If marriage wasn't between a man and a woman, you wouldn't be here because two men doing it don't produce no kids. And two women doing it don't produce no kids! It's all about family.'Now one gay couple in the congregation, Jon Mack and Michael Garrett, walked out....Now I don't understand why!....If Christianity is a religion that specifically forbids homosexuality, adultery ,fornication, lying, killing etc...Why would you not here a sermon like this preach in "ALL" Christian Churches?
