That's great! I hope they have compassion for everyone not just certain groups of people while excluding others due to beliefs not consistent with their church's beliefs.

AMAZING...Compassion doesn't seem to include women who wish to be pastors or gays wishing to marry. The church may try to gloss over that last vote but I seriously doubt that people will soon forget that truly unchristian vote.

"COMPASSION : sympathetic consciousness of others' distress together with a desire to alleviate it"

See, also:

"tolerance 1. the ability or willingness to tolerate something, in particular the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with."
