The world is buzzing at the recent affirmation made by President Obama that gays should be allowed to marry.
Apart from any religious implications, He recognizes that gays should have the same civil liberties as anyone else in America or the world for that mater.
However, I thought that it was cool that The President didn’t just leave the issue there, but he tied his views on the matter to his faith.
Here’s what he said about arriving at his decision to ABC news.
I just read a great story written by the mother of a 15 year old from a small conservative town in America.
The teen’s teacher asked his class to write an essay about the popular blog post “I’m Christian, unless you’re gay” that has caused a bit of controversy in Christian circles.
When He showed the assignment to his mom, she was furious at the teacher and the blogger and gave her son a big lecture about how it’s wrong to be gay.
I just wanted to give a shout out to Jennifer Knapp for starting Inside Out Faith.
Inside Out Faith is a concert/discussion tour that raises awareness concerning gay Christians’ acceptance within the church as well as LGBT equality.
Jennifer hopes that this tour will foster positive discussion about faith and sexuality as well as help to open the minds of those in the church who have been afraid to address the issue.
In 2008, in one of the churches darkest moments proposition 8 was voted into law.
Christians raised over 80 million dollars to convince enough people that gays did not have the right to marry. When proposition 8 went into effect gays were legally discriminated against.
