WHEW..........we are ALL sinners. We are saved by the grace of God by believing in Him. If we believe in God (Jesus) we become Christians and that means we believe the Bible..........every word in it! The Bible says marriage between different sexes is wrong. Simple! That can't be too difficult to understand. A true Christian would not believe that marriage between people of the same sex is ok. Obama thinks it's ok! Therefore, he cannot call himself a Christian and mean it. Perhaps he doesn't know that is in the Bible, especially with his upbringing. The Bible says homosexuals will go to Hell unless they change their ways. I happen to believe the Bible, especially because it just is plain common sense.<quoted text>
Yes, you are making a Judgement. You say the President is not a Christian because he supports same sex marriage and I say that makes it impossible for any of the others to be Christian(see, we both just made a Judgement Call)! Just because they "PRAYED" prior to sending people to kill and be killed doesn't mean it was approved by God, it just means just like any gangster, they are were attempting to hedge their bet.
Here's another way of looking at it. Just because President Obama said he "has no problem with marriage between different sexes" doesn't mean he's not a Christian, it just makes him a SINNER like all of us from a Christian standpoint. So how does what he said differ from an adulterer, thief, false prophet or idol worshiper, ZERO because they are SINNERS TOO! Show me one person of the Christian that says they aren't a sinner and I'll show you someone that's a liar, sinner and a FOOL! Apparently, it's you that do not understand Christianity.
HOWEVER, whatever the religious background a person has in this country it's irrelevant to the fact no religion directs how the United States operates, The US Constitution does. Anton Scalia, Clarence Thomas, John Roberts and Samuel Alito the strict constructionists that they are should have their names in the majority agreeing the California Amendment is Unconstitutional. My personal stance still on this is WHY IN THE HELL SHOULD I CARE? The two people wanting to marry each other are adults. Someone said queers promote Rape and Pedophilia. The Federal Crime statistics don't show that at all. Divorce, Rape and Pedophilia are all dominated by Heterosexuals.
Me, I'm sticking with my wife in our monogamous heterosexual relationship because we are both heterosexuals and love each other. We were born and will die that way. Same should hold true for Homosexuals since they too were born the way they were.
We wonder why this world is in such a mess! Immorality is a big part of it and is becoming more every day. You say no religion directs how the U S operates. That is true, but I respect a President that prays that God will help him make his decisions.
I don't know Obama's heart but the only way to know what he thinks is by the things he says. If he is a true Christian, he needs to rethink what he said because that is definitely unchristian.
