For a thousand years the church demanded infant baptism. When many church members began to rebel against the idea of a child burning in hell the church decided to no longer require it. The scripture which supported it is still there. For thousands of years the church hunted down, tortured and killed millions of innocent young women because they were accused of witchcraft. When sane people began to realize there was no such thing as a witch the church dropped the subject and no longer mention it. The scripture is still there. For thousands of years the church tolerated and often accomodated slavery. When it was outlawed they stopped saying anything about it. The scripture is still there. For thousands of years the church preached and accomodated the submission of women. After women were finally allowed to vote they stopped saying anything about it. Some churches are even allowing women to take part in church activities and even preach. The scripture is still there. After preaching billions of hell fire and damnation sermons the church now declares that hell is only death and doesn't burn someone in hell for all eternity. The scripture is still there. Amazing how the church adjusts to anything which begins to effect their weekly attendance and consequently...contributions. I predict that soon Gays will be welcomed into the church with open arms and marriages will be performed for same sex couples...right in the Sunday morning sanctuaries. The scripture condemning homosexuals to the flames of hell will still be there.
