Sydney Star Observer reports that... members of the Lilydale Baptist Church will decide at a special meeting this Sunday, November 27 if their pastor Reverend Matt Glover should remain in his position because of his views on marriage equality. Although the church membership is happy with Rev Glover's work, including his preaching and care of struggling people, church members just can't tolerate his opinion on marriage equality. Glover has worked with the gay community for 15 years on issues of faith. He said...“I’ve said the church doesn’t have to recgonise gay marriage, the church doesn’t have to practice gay marriage, but I think the church needs to stand up for the right of gay people to have their relationships, their marriages,legally recognised by the Government... It’s a burden we’ve felt that there’s a group of people in our community getting isolated and oppressed and having lies said about them… making them look like deviants"
Of course I'm in favour of sacking compassionate people ... my church needs more bigots.
