Megachurch's Move To A Gay Neighborhood Raises Questions

Megachurch Mars Hill has made a new home in downtown Seattle, just southwest of the Emerald City's beloved gay neighborhood, Capitol Hill.

But the intentions behind the move could be suspect. In a press release obtained by KOMO News, the church's lead pastor, Tim Gaydos, said:

“This is an incredible opportunity to be a ministry hub for downtown Seattle as it will allow us to better serve the business men and women in our city, as well as the homeless and marginalized, as we're closer to one of our ministry partners, Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission. Also, being closer to Capitol Hill is a blessing as we are serving and ministering to those who are infected with AIDS on the hill.” As LGBT blog and news site ThinkProgress reports, Mars Hill -- which has voiced that it believes homosexuality is a sin and that they can "save sinners" through the love of Jesus -- has not indicated that it's partnered with Lifelong AIDS Alliance, the Seattle-based advocacy group that serves people with HIV/AIDS, a red flag that the church's only means of ministering to those "infected by AIDS" is to "pray the gay away."

Washington recently began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in December after the state voted in favor of marriage equality in a historic 2012 general election.

I think Tim's been getting a gay dose of cum down his throat every night.

When did Capitol Hill become gay? I thought it was sort of a Silver Lake without gays.

Please read the article below to find out why gays should align with straight females in their mutual, continuous struggle for equality. Blaming increasingly strong, educated women (and Eve) for societal male failure?

Capitol Hill has been gay since the late 1980s - at LEAST. It was the certainly the gay neighborhood when I lived there for a few years in the early/mid 1990s.

No Capitol Hill was gay as early as 1980. I visited a friend there that year and he explained it was the gay neighborhood, known to straights as the Swish Alps.

Rev. Tim had an amazing weekend. Spent at the baths, no doubt.

Swish Alps sounds like a good name for a gay tour agency in Lucerne.

Downtown isn't really "near" Capitol Hill much at all.
