comment Which denominations follow “queer theology”?
@Anonymous The question isn't about the clergy, though the restrictions on the clergy are often a very good indicator of the beliefs of the denomination. In the case of the RCC (and to a lesser extent, the Orthodox), the celibacy requirements make the restrictions on the clergy less useful as an indicator, but it should be noted that no openly practicing homosexual is likely to be ordained deacon any time soon.

comment Why should a sinner suffer forever in hell fire?
@Steve I am. You ask about what would happen if the drill were to continue forever. I intended to ask, "What if the thing which is worse than the dentist's drill were to continue forever?" The drill would then seem like a welcome alternative.

comment Was the apostle Peter martyred in Rome?
More than just Rome believes it: the Orthodox Church, and the Oriental Church, and the Anglican churches all attest to this.

comment Why is faith so much more important than being a good person?
@eldersouth "Damnation for all outside of the Church" isn't exactly the majority opinion of Christians.

comment What does it mean to be “born of water” in John 3:5?
@Matt So you are saying that those who die in the womb are specifically excluded from heaven? That seems harsh.

comment Did Mary die, or was she translated like Enoch and Elijah?
@Warren Jude 1:9 But when the archangel Michael, contending with the devil, disputed about the body of Moses, he did not presume to pronounce a reviling judgment upon him, but said, "The Lord rebuke you.". If Moses had just been assumed, the devil would not be able to dispute the body.
