Good for her.

Still it’s weird staying with the homophobia but Carl being a cheater being the breaking point. Idk. It’s prob more complicated than that. It is a cult after all..

Yeah, to me it's like...the homophobia wasn't a dealbreaker? I don't know the details of this story so idk if he was like cheating with young girls or something, but if he's cheating, he's a fuckboy for sure, but that's between him and his wife.

That was my exact thought. THAT'S what made you quit? A man cheating? Not all the problematic teachings?

A bit simplified but basically "I'm okay with destroying the lives of queer people, but I draw the line at marital problems."

Genuine question, as I have no idea about Hillsong and have managed to steer clear of it mostly, but what is their actual stance on homosexuality? I always see a guy pop up on my search feed on Insta (I can't find him right now, but I'll come back if he comes up on me feed in the next few days) and he seems to post really pro-LGBTQ+ stuff and I'm pretty sure he's a pastor for Hillsong and has lots if followers, so I'd assume quite high up.

Are they of the "Hate the sin, love the sinner" line of thinking? If so, huge side eye that THIS is what made Selena move on.

exactly - I rolled my eyes hard. She'll just move on to another conservative church dressed up as hip.
