He confirmed what we already knew. Don't think it will either help or hurt him - don't believe it will change a person vote one way or the other.

We are born without bias or without prejudice. These we are taught.

The church has always rewritten the Bible-depending upon who was in control at the moment & what they felt we needed to believe & omitted the things they felt we didn't need to know. Below is an interesting read.

"For the Church to ignore the evidence in its own archives would be cowardly and deceptive. The evidence convincingly shows that what the modern church claims has always been its unchanging attitude towards homosexuality is, in fact, nothing of the sort.

It proves that for the last two millennia, in parish churches and cathedrals throughout Christendom, from Ireland to Istanbul and even in the heart of Rome itself, homosexual relationships were accepted as valid expressions of a God-given love and committment to another person, a love that could be celebrated, honored and blessed, through the Eucharist in the name of, and in the presence of, Jesus Christ."

Everyone has an opinion-this is just another one, not necessarily mine. I don't believe Jesus ever mentioned homosexuality-either pro or con.

I can't believe this issue is still relavent.
When did we make equality a dirty word?
Can anybody tell me where to find the word "marriage" in the Bible. Isn't it pretty much a legal term? If so shouldn't it be available to all tax-paying law abiding citizens?
This entire issue is so small, can't we just move on? We seriously have much bigger things to worry about.

He is a bandwagon-er who is going to use anything he deems as the 'popular opinion' to benefit himself at the polls.

He's shady, self-serving and racist. We never saw the "Hope & Change" (well, we saw undesirable change and false hope) that he promised, only failed bailouts, continually weakening economy, high jobless rates and higher health insurance premiums with lower coverage.

Oh sure, we saw Bin Laden killed under his administration. Of course, he told the SEAL commanders that if the operation failed, he would hold them accountable... yet he was more than willing to take undue credit for the success.

There are thousands of "Obamanites" who realized their mistake the last election and more than likely will not vote for him this election. Those who do vote for him will have allowed themselves to be deceived.

Of course, I'm sure that someone, somewhere will say that if you don't vote for him, you're a racist and a homophobe. No... they're just independent thinkers with dignity.
