Secondly, I always wonder why the focus of some Christians is on homosexuality instead of on the sins of hypocrisy, excessive pride and boasting, judging others in place of God. You know, the stuff Jesus was actually concerned about.
I think there are several possible reasons for this "fixation." One might be that it is an "obvious" activity, whereas someone who swindles money through preaching is not so "blatent," using explanations for their "needs for money" such as "preaching the Gospel" and "the laborer is worthy of his hire" and "tithe to be prosperous."

Just some thoughts,
Brian
