Real Life Pastor Opposes Ordinance

A pastor at one of the area's largest churches is asking his congregation to oppose an anti-discrimination ordinance the city of Coeur d'Alene will consider adopting tonight. Real Life Ministries Pastor Jim Putman urged church members in a Facebook post to fight the proposed rule on grounds that would be "a pathway to promoting sin." "Homosexuality is no worse then [sic] adultery or stealing but it is still sin," Putman wrote last week. If "someone told me I had to hire or rents [sic] space to a thief I would not like that - neither would I like this." He wrote that people who support the ordinance believe that homosexuality is not a choice and people are created that way, but "there is no solid scientific evidence for that and the Bible clearly calls it sin"/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press.
