      ....but what did the Christian Church say about it for about two thousand years?

      You know what it said. And what it did.

      It was secular thinkers who promoted the idea that same-sex attraction was a harmless variant in the human condition that required no response from those not touched by it, not a ghastly sin that would have you burning forever in Hell after you were killed by the church and/or the state, often in very unpleasant ways.

      And in all those years that GLBTQ people were being murdered, there was never a pyre that miraculously refused to light, or an executioner who miraculously lost the use of his arms, or a denouncer who was instantly stricken blind, nor a judge who was miraculously struck by lightning. It really does seem that Somebody was not paying attention.

      This is the landscape that we understand, -
      And till the principle of things takes root,
      How shall examples move us from our calm?

      (Mary Oliver, "Beyond the Snow Belt.")
