So really, merely asking them to leave
"Quit before we fire you, and we'll give you a severance package, otherwise, you get nothing" -- hardly a choice there...
The church has done much worse in the past.
So, because a human institution (though divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit, it's still a human institution) did bad things in it's History -- everything should be thrown out.
You're advocating throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Which is fine, but considering the Catholic Church is what created the first Schools and Hospitals -- well, you better close those right now (or not use either) because someone may have burned a witch 500 years ago.
People are doing the opposite of calling vices virtues.
Well this is just complete BS. Homosexual contact (not the attraction, but the sexual contact) is sinful. It's a vice. The virtue would be abstinence -- in other words, celibacy. Which is the same virtue for all unmarried people.
But that's not what the current culture says -- it says, well, "be who you are" and promoted the idea that a deviant behavior is mainstream and one that should be celebrated. I'm not advocating judging gays, I would not support any law that restricts what two consenting adults do in their bedroom -- but stating that the relationship is a marriage is folly, and that it's a virtue to be aspired to (gay marriage) is completely backwards.
Society has fallen far, and very fast, from the way God intended it to be.
And just like Sodom and Gomorrah, the Roman Empire, and Babylon before it, God's judgment WILL be poured out.
The barbarians are at the gates, you just don't realize it.
