I have to disagree with the reader who stated “Jesus said nothing about homosexuality.” My belief is that the complete Bible (100 percent) is God’s Word, and shows numerous times that Jesus is part of our Triune God.

Using my KJV Bible, there are many passages, both New and Old Testament, that state “gay” actions are against God’s law — Lev. 18:22, Lev. 20:13, 2 Tim. 3:13, 1 Cor. 6:9, Rom. 1:26, Rom. 1:32 and Mark 10:6-7.

Yes, God/Jesus/Holy Spirit loves the sinner and damns the sin. After all, God is a “just” God.

Those who pick and choose passages to live their preferred lifestyles are only hurting themselves. Our life on earth is for a short time, but our life after death is an eternity.

Perhaps it’s time for more of us to take a stand and not try to change God’s Word. Vote “yes” for the marriage amendment and let civil unions join our “gay” friends in their lifestyle.
