  • .Should a Christian attend a gay wedding?

    I was wondering what people's views are about whether Christians should attend gay weddings.

    How would you respond if you were invited to a gay wedding?

    No. My presence would imply I condone the practice.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

                  There are Christians who risk their jobs over not performing a service for a gay wedding, so a Christian who intentionally attends a gay wedding is a slap in the face to them.

                  How would you respond if you were invited to a gay wedding?
                  Politely decline if asked personally, just don't show up if it was an invitation in the mail.

                    How does one unintentionally attend a gay wedding?

                        Hijack alert! What if you thought the girl your son was marrying was a lying cheating harlot (edit/add: or a rabid anti-Christian atheist), would you attend?

                          Heheheheheheh.

                          And to follow along, since I don't recognize said union as legit within Church jurisdiction (And something I don't deem worthy of celebrating), a polite decline of the invitation is in order.

                            Sure but I would know that he was only marrying her if she was really hot and/or had tons of money. I'd remind him of Proverbs 11:22. The reason I would give the ok is that many women are extremely fickle. One of the ways he can win her over with is his charm.
                            If it was my daughter marrying a creep then no way. I would apply Numbers 30:5 and 1 Corinthians 7:37 at once.

                              I have a shotgun, a shovel, and 40 acres of pristine wilderness -- nobody would ever find her.
