Linda Oliver has no business in the public office. For one, she is ignorant. Jesus never said anything about gays in the bible at all. It is not her place to judge anyone. I don't think God gave her that charge. Equality for all, Miss Oliver. Gay marriage is no more rammed down your throat than heterosexual marriage is rammed down gay people's throat. Don't be ridiculous. The only commandment that Jesus gave is to love one another. Where is your love?

she's a redneck bigot. jesus has nothing to do with it. it's about equal treatment under the law. not that anyone gives a flying f. u. k about what some redneck mayor of some backwater s.c. town has to say about anything...its just amusing that she had no more sense than to say it so publicly in 2013. Hey Linda...it's not 1950 anymore dear....take your spot at the rear of the line...

I find it humorous that you claim no one cares what she has to say about it, But yesterday, you didn't even know her name and today you seem to be quite bent out of shape about it as you rant on the WWW.

Seriously Jesus was the schizophrenic leader of a homophobic Jewish cult. He also said that the Old Testament was the word of God. So there.
