The President's 'Other Gospel'

I want to be happy and I want to let my fellow men be happy, whether that means being gay, straight or republican. It doesn't affect me (until Republicans deny me my rights) and so I shouldn't get a say in denying them their right to the pursuit of happiness. Your twisted interpretation of the golden rule (which apparently isn't a "christian law" since it's O T) displays everything that is wrong with christian morality.

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.
