Yeah that's real smart, vote for Paul and make sure Obama gets re-elected.

I like Ron Paul, even though I don't agree with everything he says, but he doesn't have a snowballs chance in hell of winning with a write in vote. The bootom line is, our next President is either Mitt or Barry. A vote for Paul might as well be a vote for Obama. So if you are OK with Obama getting a second term then go ahead and vote for Paul.

I am ... really dont see a diff. between Obama and Romeny for the working class, So if not a third party, then might as well give Obama a crack at finishing what he started

I would much rather vote Ron Paul, Jeb Bush, Hilary, or Chris Cristie, but since I cant, I wont vote at all

Not that it really matters if I vote or not, I dont live in a swing state

If a pastor has to grapple with such a biblically- clear-cut issue as homosexuality, then he isn't qualified to be a Christian pastor my son. A swine herder perhaps?

What about glutony?? Gay sex is mentioned at most 6 times in all of bible. Blutony and greed are mentioned dozens of times..Which means glutony and greed are much worse sins....I SEE ALOT OF FAT RICH PEOPLE LEAVING CHURCH.....Why dont you religous types attack them and try to control and change them?

in the Bible... Which I dont believe in, but have read... it says that no sin carries more weight than another

So... weither you are banging a guy from behind, Eating shellfish, or coveting thy neighbors wife... its all the same in the eyes of the christian god... The bigots just pick and choose which sins they want to make the most stink about based on hatered

Gotta run off to work but here is "one" quick answer. You don't see people trying to pass laws saying glutony should be "legal" (ok two answers) and you don't see GOD speak with such disdain against glutony as he does against homosexuality...many reasons

Glutony and greed are legal for all people with no bans or restrictions......And since God saw fit to have gluntony and greed mention 4 times as much as gay sex he must hate that more.......Come on you know I am right.

That was brilliant Father Flannigan.

Any clergy or denominations that agree with homosexuality, promote it, and bless it are promoting false doctrine and comitting apostasy.

Well let's see maybe becouse god didn't nuke two citys for being overweight.

Or fry some chubbys like he did the god cursed sudomites

Or just maybe becouse he made Adam and eve not Adam and steve

Calling those that practice it an abomination might be your first clue.

Hope this helped all the fudge packers out there

Lmao you have a nice eternity.

Everyone is free to go to church...fat people, blacks, asians, a rich person etc....gays are also allowed to go to church.

All of us have sinned.

You need to relax dude.

I've heard sermons preached about all sins. but seems it's gays who get upset the most.

WHOA WHOA DUDE..........Gays dont get upset until there rights are kept or taken from them....YOU WOULD DO THE SAME...FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHTS I MEAN.....

The church marries fat people and greedy people and people who lie.........but because of bigotry wont marry gay people....WHY DO THEY PICK THAT ONE SIN.....ONE SIN OUT OF MANY......Oh yea because they hate that one sin and the rest of them they worship....

Some churches/denominations do marry gays...Episcopalian in the US, United Church of Canada also does(and some more denominations). While I think they are wrong, gays are free to go and get married in them.

Maybe this helps, if you read it all...

That is for the other world. In this world, God ordered that men who fked men be killed, but he never ordered someone killed for being fat, though he did order the execution of a guy for helping lift the ark and another guy for spilling his seed.

A Ron Paul for president would be a disaster. He did not even want us to go after the Somali pirates who kidnapped that couple. I can imagine him setting foreign policy.
