From the White House Blog:
I have quite a number of friends, and a large number of clients in Michigan who belong to the LGBT community. All of them possess a great deal of love from this man's heart.
This is such a polarizing subject in our nation. It is clear that God's word is in strong opposition to this behavior. It is also clear that some are predisposed to same-sex attractions. To make matters worse, it would seem that some would seek to move, what I believe to be a disposition, to a cellular temperament.
To make this issue even more tangled, there are clear stereotypes, and prejudices in the mix. What a complete and utter mess!
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
A great many in the Christian world would read this verse and see only the word homosexual. But God does not isolate the homosexual any more than he would isolate the sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, thieves, greedy, drunkards, revilers, or swindlers.
We all have sinned, do sin, and do fall short of the glory of God. My tendency towards the love of money is no different, in God's eyes, then someone's tendency towards homosexuality. Both are sin.
And certainly, we have seen idolaters of money in the White House a great deal!
