    No convicting is not our job, but having convictions is asked of
    us. Without closing doors, I cannot see where homosexual relationships are
    allowed. I am ready to accept all sinners, knowing that I am a sinner as
    well. But it does not mean, that we now have to proclaim that we accept
    homosexual relationships, just like we accept hetero-sexual marriages. We
    have to study our Bible, though, and then we must accept its teachings. If
    someone explains certain parts of Scri[pture in a different way than I do,
    so be it. I am not the one that condemns, but I must read Scripture, which
    means I cannot let it just lie there and say, "I think so and so, if you
    think differently, it is OK." It may be, and it may not be.
