Make room for the 'Others'

Soon, gay people started showing up at [a pastor's] church...sometimes in pairs... The congregation got nervous. They said, "Pastor, the homosexuals are coming! They're coming down the aisles by twos! What are we going to do?"

[The pastor] said, "Well I guess they can take a seat next to the idolaters and the gossips and the fornicators and the whoremongers. Make room."

(Joe Dallas, How Should We Respond? An exhortation to the Church on loving the homosexual, p.9. Emphasis added)
