106. Crack a Bible and read some of the books he gets his 'faith'
from. Then try to tell me that he and his wife live their lives according to the rules in those books which apply to them. They simply do not. Read what Paul says about how women should behave, then look at Michelle, and tell me she has standing to judge gay people on the basis of St Paul. Just saying. I am sick to death of the pretense. Paul says a few things against gay people, he also says women must be silent in public, covered, never wearing costly things or anything that is meant to draw attention to her or to her beauty. Women are to remain subservient to all men, and submissive to their husbands. They are never ever to ask a question of anyone but their husbands.
So as private individuals, they do not live by those books. They simply do not. St Paul teaches that slaves should obey their masters as they are God's proxy on earth to the slave. Do you think the Obamas believe that one? Treat your master as you would treat God?
It just gets old. They have zero standing to question anyone. Hypocrites. And that is that.
