So is it just about “love”

"Concordia Publishing House (CPH) is the publishing arm of the 2 million-member Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, a conservative denomination that rejects ordaining women, abortion, and homosexual marriage. Founded in 1869, CPH is the oldest publishing company west of the Mississippi River and the world’s largest distinctly Lutheran publishing house. According to its website, it publishes “the world’s most widely circulated daily devotional resource,” printing and distributing over 850,000 copies quarterly, and its children’s books have been published in the millions of copies. But none of this matters to the world’s most visited website, Google dot com who has refused to do business with CPH."

Remember when we were told that gay marriage was just about love and certain government benefits (about 3,000)? No, it's about something else. Power. Google didn't mind when some Christian groups didn't support abortion, or divorce, or sleeping around; it didn't care what Christians believed about the body and blood of Jesus, or healing, or tongues, or baptism. No flak for being a pacifist, or not paying taxes, or birth control methods. But if a church doesn't support homosexual marriage (most accept them as members), and increasingly transsexual surgeries and modifications, (and it will move on the polygamy and pedophilia), then somehow, Google is offended.

And no, this isn’t the civil rights movement. Ask any African American.
