Both the expected US Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney and Barack Obama agree on homosexuals being “Boy Scouts”:
8 August 2012
President Obama and Mitt Romney have found some new common ground -surprisingly – on an issue of gay rights.
Obama today joined Romney in publicly disagreeing with a controversial ban on gay members of the Boy Scouts of America, one of the nation’s largest and most well-known youth development groups.
“The president believes the Boy Scouts is a valuable organization that has helped educate and build character in American boys for more than a century. He also opposes discrimination in all forms, and as such opposes this policy that discriminates on basis of sexual orientation,” said White House spokesman Shin Inouye in a statement to the Washington Blade, a LGBT newspaper
It’s the first time Obama, who was named honorary president of the Boy Scouts of America in 2009, has publicly taken a position on the issue.
Romney first voiced support for gay scouts back in 1994 — a position that his campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul said remains his position today. http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/08/president-obama-mitt-romney-agree-gay-boy-scouts-ok/
Mitt Romney’s church, “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints,” has been one of the strongest voices against homosexual Boy Scouts, but Mitt Romney has taken a different stance (the Boy Scouts, for those unfamiliar with that organization, are a private club where pre-teen and teenage boys develop skills and often camp and hike). Unmarried teens should not be engaging in sex of any kind and Boy Scouts are supposed to be “morally straight” as that is part of the Boy Scout oath.
Truly, from a Christian perspective Jesus could not support either of the US presidential candidates for president.
Notice what happened in a couple of such towns between three thousand and four thousand years ago:
24 Then the Lord rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from the Lord out of the heavens. 25 So He overthrew those cities, all the plain, all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground. (Genesis 19:24-25)
And why did it happen?
7 as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. (Jude 7)
Why mention this in the 21st century? Because God turned:
6…the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly (2 Peter 2:6, NKJV)
Thus, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah were to serve as an example to those who would live as they did. The USA, which has lots of Bibles, should know this–but refuses to wish to truly retain God in its knowledge.
Both major US presidential hopefuls claim to be “Christian” but have made public statements that are not consistent with truly believing what the Bible teaches.
