Pitcher and Catcher

Today during the sermon on I Corinthians 6…when it came to the part about homosexual offenders…my pastor actually used the phrase "pitchers and catchers" to describe two of the various roles in gay sex.

 The scariest part is that this is the sanest, least offensive way he could have described it to the congregation.

Still: I am proud to be part of Mars Hill and believe, firmly, that they do the most they possibly can to help (a) prevent future boys from suffering from the sexual confusion and brokenness of growing up with severe gender confusion and (b) help those men who were not so fortunate.  Additionally, they are genuinely sensitive and loving to the Seattle gay community without being accepting or tolerant of the gay lifestyle.

Thanks, Mark.  I'll never be able to hear you give another baseball metaphor, but it's a small price to pay.

One Response to “Pitcher and Catcher”

  1. I think that you are all covering up the fact that you’re still gay.
    There is no need whatsoever to be ashamed of that, and I promise you, God will not punish you for choosing who you love.
    There is no such thing as “formerly gay”. Only “I’m going to pretend to be straight because I don’t have the balls to take the criticism.”
    You should be ashamed when there are people out there fighting for your right to be free, and you are there in your comfortable little homes cowering under the pressure.
