Gov. Sarah Palin's church is promoting a conference that promises to convert gays into heterosexuals through the power of prayer.

"You'll be encouraged by the power of God's love and His desire to transform the lives of those impacted by homosexuality," according to the insert in the bulletin of the Wasilla Bible Church (http://wasillabible.org/), where Palin has prayed for about six years.

Palin's conservative Christian views have energized that part of the GOP electorate, which was lukewarm to John McCain's candidacy before he named her as his vice presidential choice.

Nothing new. Most Protestant churches pray for conversion of homosexuals.

most?

no

actually most protestant church bodies do not pray for that

the roman catholic church does not either

some church bodies are more accepting than others and the issue is a struggle but praying for "conversion" in whatever sense- no

Is there anything wrong with praying for homosexuals to convert to Christianity?

Im Luthern and we pray for gays...Because being gay is considered a sin. A challenge put on by the devil. And we pray they overcome their challenge by the devil and come back to God.

No.

I do have a problem with the camps for homosexual children, though.

Hey now, the Bills fans gotta have a place to send their kids.

On topic.....well, i do think some people are "wired" gay from birth, and i do know some people where its a free conscious choice for them. Me personally? I love my wife, and anything past that is between them and their Creator, not me.:hi5:
