The President's 'Other Gospel'

Your god doesn't exist. That's how I know that the words are not divine. If you could prove that god exists and that his laws somehow increase the health of the nation I'd be all for it. The truth of the matter is that most of the laws are anachronistic and have no purpose today. Indeed, some even harm society. Eg: outlawing abortion leads to a spike in adolescent crime two decades later as all the poorly raised kids who were unwanted become offenders. I don't push my way of life on you, the least you can do is return the Cavour.

It is one thing to talk about "fairness" when it comes to allowing gays and lesbians to marry; it is quite another to claim biblical authority for such relationships.

President Obama cited the "Golden Rule" about treating others as you would like to be treated, but in doing so he ignored the totality of Scripture and the Lord Himself, who alone gets to set the rules for human behavior.

The president says he is a "practicing Christian." It is difficult to be one while simultaneously holding a low view of the Bible, which his position on several social issues might suggest.
