7. I asked my fundagelical hubby what the big deal about gay marriage is
and here is the answer I got.

"It's a sin".

Well ok, but we don't live in a theocracy.

"But this nation was founded on the Bible. Don't you think we should live according to Biblical principles?"

Um, yes and no. Yes to many of the principles, but no to saying they are from the Bible.

"How can a Christian say that? You aren't a real Christian."

Let's leave that up to God to decide. Back to the issue at hand. Why can't gays _legally_ get married.

"Because we need morality in this nation."

What about Bu$h murdering all those Iraqis in his war?

"That too."

Are you saying that two men or women getting married is the equivilent of murder?

"Yes. In God's eyes all sins are equal."

And there you have it, folks. A look into the mind of a protestant fundagelical. And if he wasn't my hubby and I didn't love him so much, I'd tie his shoelaces together when we go to bed tonight.

Help expose the election 2004 voter fraud!
