Jimmy Carter likes The GaysBy
Because we haven’t really been Gay around here enough lately (and with Gordon all busy with boring City Council stuff) I thought I’d post this tidbit from former President and devout Baptist Jimmy Carter:
“Homosexuality was well known in the ancient world, well before Christ was born and Jesus never said a word about homosexuality. In all of his teachings about multiple things -– he never said that gay people should be condemned. I personally think it is very fine for gay people to be married in civil ceremonies. I draw the line, maybe arbitrarily, in requiring by law that churches must marry people. I’m a Baptist, and I believe that each congregation is autonomous and can govern its own affairs. So if a local Baptist church wants to accept gay members on an equal basis, which my church does by the way, then that is fine. If a church decides not to, then government laws shouldn’t require them to.” — Jimmy Carter.
Where oh where are the Democratic candidates for County Commission on The Gays? I’ve asked the question but only Holly Jones, Brownie Newman, Ellen Frost, Terry Van Duyn and Aixa Wilson have bothered to answer me. Chairman Gantt? Tracey DeBruhl? Keith Young? Carol Weir Peterson? JoAnne Morgan? Randy Flack? Michelle Pace Wood? Bueller? Bueller? Anyone? Anyone?
Feel free to answer over here. But don’t take too long! We have Amendments to defeat! Thank you in advance for your answers.
