When lawmakers consider admitting a gay member to the judge position ,how can he take the oath on a bible when he already is breaking Gods Law. it would seem that it would be impossible to appoint him to a position when he himself has to swear to keeping these laws (Gods Law ) first an man;s law second when he ,himself is breaking one of the law;s that God speaks against. THAT BEING SAID IF HE IS APPOINTED THEN NOT ONLY WOULD HE BE ILLEGALLY TAKENING AN OATH ,BEING FALSE ,KNOWING FALSE ,BUT ALSO THE LAWMAKERS SUPPORTING THIS FALSE HOOD.

I'm dizzy from reading that. The best part is the people who marked it as 'helpful'.

Check out the laws in VA... I think his "life style" is against one or more of them... so enforcing the law in VA would be considered a contradiction to some people.

It's been struck down, so it's irrelevant, but you're telling me that until recently, all the hetero judges were engaging only in state-allowed sex?

You bring up a good point, when taking an oath on a bible is it a violation of the first amendment or is it pure meaningless symbolatry?
.
Are these laws (God's Law) a violation of the first amendment, or are they unilateral secular laws designed for the protection of civil liberties and personal property rights while ensuring societal cooperation?
