According to your bible, God hates homosexuals but it's OK for man to rape and have multiple wives.
Great morals you advocate there!!
Chapter and verse where GOD says its okay to rape and have multiple wives.

Just because someone is rape or have multiple wives in one of the chapters does not mean GOD approves of it.

Chapter and verse where GOD states he approves of rape and multiple wives.

This is man choices and decisions, not GOD's.

Although, it does state in the Bible where GOD hates the homosexual's act:

Lev. 18:22-23 King James Version

22. You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.

23. And you shall not lie with any beast and defile yourself with it, neither shall any woman give herself to a beast to lie with it: it is a perversion.

You are probably correct. The problem is they need to address the real issues of mental illness rather than attempting to place additional restrictions on law abiding citizens. Mass shootings are obviously done by people who have some type of mental illness. The problem is the number of people who seek mental treatment such as anti-depressants. Do you have any idea how many Americans are on anti-depressants???
I'm all for improving our health care delivery system when it comes to issues of mental health, but that's going to take money and most conservatives seem to lose interest when it comes to paying for it.

The problem I see is that in a society where guns are so prevalent, the mentally ill are always going to have relatively easy access to firearms and any real effort to make it harder for those who should not have guns to get them is met by stiff resistance and cries of "disarming the people" by the gun lobby.

Take the stories we've heard on this thread about ex-soldiers who have been diagnosed with serious mental illnesses being told they can't own firearms.

They are always followed by the far right screaming about how unfair and unconstitutional it is to strip these individuals of their second amendment rights.

You can't have it both both ways. Either we're going to get serious or we're not.

Ben Carson, admirable man with a mistaken philosophy

......Yet black Americans know better than to believe those traits are enough to guarantee success. History taught us better. Just look back over the last decade and a half. In 2000, according to the U.S. census, less than a quarter of black Americans -- 22.5%-- lived in poverty. By 2010, that number had risen to 27.4%. Was there a sudden outbreak of indolence among black folk over that period? Or were there outside forces that conspired to knock them back down the economic ladder? As long as the Republican Party refuses to acknowledge that, it will have little to offer workers of color -- and declining appeal to younger whites. They, too, understand the limits of self-reliance.
To be helpful to the GOP, Carson would have to remind them of the caprice of capitalism and the generational reach of racism's barriers. Instead, he sounds like the standard-issue Ayn Rand acolyte, no different from Mitt Romney or Paul Ryan. He opposes the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and supports a flat tax. For good measure, he's also a religious conservative who disputes evolution.
(cont.)
Typical left wing tactics on a very admirable, intelligent conservative. Rather than applaud his efforts and accomplishments, they berate him because he "sounds like the standard-issue" conservative.

"We don't necessarily have to do 10% but it's the principle. He didn't say if your crops fail, don't give me any tithe or if you have a bumper crop, give me triple tithe. So there must be something inherently fair about proportionality. You make $10 billion, you put in a billion. You make $10 you put in one. Of course you've got to get rid of the loopholes. Some people say,'Well that's not fair because it doesn't hurt the guy who made $10 billion as much as the guy who made 10.' Where does it say you've got to hurt the guy? He just put a billion dollars in the pot. We don't need to hurt him. It's that kind of thinking that has resulted in 602 banks in the Cayman Islands. That money needs to be back here building our infrastructure and creating jobs."

Not surprisingly, a practicing physician has un-PC thoughts on health care:

"Here's my solution: When a person is born, give him a birth certificate, an electronic medical record, and a health savings account to which money can be contributed—pretax—from the time you're born 'til the time you die. If you die, you can pass it on to your family members, and there's nobody talking about death panels. We can make contributions for people who are indigent. Instead of sending all this money to some bureaucracy, let's put it in their HSAs. Now they have some control over their own health care. And very quickly they're going to learn how to be responsible."

The Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon may not be politically correct, but he's closer to correct than we've heard in years.

Yeah.., and god says women need to shut the hell up in the presence of men.

Even assuming that you're context is correct, read the rest of the book of Leviticus and tell me how many "abominations" you commit in a day.

You can't just pick and choose.

If those are the rules that you choose to judge others by then those are the rules by which you will be judged.

1 Corinthians 14:34 - 35

34. Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but [they are commanded] to be under obedience, as also saith the law.
35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

We all know he has some major issues when it comes to rejecting Evolution. Of course, I imagine you disagree? Don't disappoint me.
Other than that, he simply has it wrong.
