Maryland Reverend Robert Anderson of Colonial Baptist Church in Randallstown has caused quite a stir by saying that supporters of same-sex marriage should be put to death. He said “Those who practice such things are worthy of death. If we don’t vote against it, then we are approving these things that are worthy of death.” Anderson defended his words by saying “That’s not my words. That’s from Romans Chapter 1 written by the Apostle Paul himself.”

I don't doubt that some self proclaimed Christians teach that. However I also don't believe that is true of all Christians.
Some would say that Jesus was pretty clear what the core teaching was in his statement in Matthew 22:36. To paraphrase, love God and love your neighbor as yourself.
The sad and scary thing is that the "nice" christians usually aren't the ones who make the loudest noise and influence their flocks to vote a certain way. The nice christians realize that nothing good comes from the commingling of church and state. There is a growing distaste with factions of organized religion in this country with their loud and insistent clamor that may harm the good work done by others.
It's in the best interest of those more moderate and true christians to rein in their misguided brethren and set them back upon the true path.

And indeed, it is. But these misguided, judgmental zealots aren't practicing anything even vaguely related to Christianity and they certainly aren't following the teachings of Christ.
And therein lies the problem.
Yes they are Christians. Yes this IS what Christianity resembles.

If they're I'd a different Christianity, it's members are not crying foul loud enough to be heard.

And what exactly did Jesus say about divorce and remarriage as amounting to adultery? And, of course, we know what the Bible (Old Testament) says about the penalty for committing adultery. Yet, I don't hear this "pastor" advocating for killing those people who divorce (putting asunder what God has joined together) and taking another spouse. Why not? it's in the Bible, you know, and not only that it's JESUS' words! Under this Pastor's reading of the Bible, I assume he must logically advocate death for Newt Gingrich!

Romans one is always a verse that many conservatives go to not knowing what Paul was writing about. With this I mean the Roman Christians were confronted with temples where people went to go have sex with others male and female to appease their Gods. And I think it is interesting that no one who uses Romans 1 as text to stand against those who are gay and lesbian ever go to nor mention Romans 2:1. So for the record this is what Paul says after the couple of verses dealing with homosexuality. "You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge another, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things." Now why is that?

Actually, I think it's the "reverend" who needs to check himself, since Barack Obama has publicly stated his support for marriage equality for same sex couples, it seems that the "reverend" by advocating death for those who support gay nmarraige is making death threats against the President of the United States. I thought I'd never see the day an African American minister would advocate death for an African American president, but then again I guess it just shows how ignorant some people can be, black or white.

Obama is half racist-queer-white and half Kenyan.
Obama has zero slave blood and is a total fraud to real black folks.

The Reverend is a true black man.

Well, regardless, I believe the Secret Service has the obligation to investigate threats to the life of the President of the United states (whether you consider him your President or not) and regardless of whether the threats come from a "true" black man, as you put it.

The American xtian Nazis like to re-write history and pretend that Hitler was a gay atheist, or that he wasn't a "real" xtian based on his actions. The hate that comes from the American brand is no different. They're all filthy liars who think that their brand of xtianity should have dominion over everything, just like the good old days when they could torture and kill everyone they don't like.

Where did the Reverend make a threat to President Obama?
Just because Obama is probably a queer?

I hope the Reverend tells the congregation and the internet how queertard Obama sent government thugs to make threats against a Christian church reading scripture.

In Maryland, a state the queers are trying to take over by popular vote. This goes good with the deaf black lady at Gallaudet the homosexual got fired for signing a petition queers don't like.

Stay classy, rich white racist queers.

OK. I get that. What I don't get is, who decides what "sin" is? Christianity is based on two basic concepts, both of which are disgusting:(1) we are all evil sinners and born that way, and (2) the only way to overcome this is by a blood sacrifice. A BLOOD SACRIFICE? Sound familiar? Like the Aztecs for instance? Both these concepts should not be accepted by rational human beings. Time to grow up, folks! These are stone age myths and they need to go the way of the Flintstones.

Actually, it doesn't "allow" slavery, but rather COMMANDS slaves to obey their masters.
The Bibls is one of the chief arguments used by members of the Confederate States Of America to justify the morality of slavery.
I believe, and always have, that slavery is one of the WORST crimes a person can commit, just half a notch above rape or murder. Sadly, slavery still exists in the world, even in the U.S.
The Thirteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution expressly prohibits slavery in the U.S., yet within just the past few years, it took a FEDERAL JUDGE'S COURT ORDER to have a couple of counties in the South STOP the practice of using slaves, in violation of the Thirteenth Amendment. And this is just in the past couple of years.
Point take and I stand corrected. Nevertheless my point is that if someone suggest he be oppressed or put to death for something not under his control, say the color of his skin, there would be an outcry heard from one end of the nation to the other.

So, you're saying that black preachers who don't pass along the same sort of irrational bigotry that their own people have been subjected to, to other minority groups, won't have a pulpit?

That's a sad commentary, isn't it?

What idiot thinks that anyone who supports equal civil rights for gay folks has to be gay?

Wouldn't that mean that half the American population would be gay?

If you support equality under the law for black Americans, does that make you black?

The facts say otherwise.

There are many black preachers who support marriage equality for same-sex couples, and their congregations support them as well.

In fact dozens of them recently held a conference in DC last week, including the Rev Delman Coates of the Mt Ennon Baptist Church. His "flock" seems to be doing just fine.

You don't have to be gay to support equal rights for gays & lesbians.

Just as you don't have to be straight to oppose eqaul rights for gays & lesbians. Many self-hating closet cases (hint, hint- we're talking about you) do just that.
