Same-sex hypocrisy

| Tuesday, May 15, 2012, 6:56 p.m.

Now both the vice president and the president claim they approve of same-sex marriages. Both are hypocrites.

Joe Biden, a supposedly good Catholic, on Ash Wednesday this year proudly displayed during the workday the ashes placed on his forehead by a Catholic priest. But the Catholic Church firmly states its opposition to homosexuality and gay marriage.

Likewise, Obama has "evolved" his opinion to side with the homosexual agenda, pointing to the Golden Rule of the Bible. If Obama were a Christian, he and his wife would and should know from nine places in the Bible that homosexuals cannot enter the kingdom of heaven.

People who claim to believe in God, and therefore the Bible, constitute about 80 percent of the American population. If these people in November would vote their conscience and faith and not be hypocrites, the Obama-Biden ticket would get just 20 percent of the popular vote.

How many religious hypocrites will there be in November? If you claim to be a good Catholic or Christian, you cannot vote in good conscience and faith for people who think abortion and homosexuality are God-given or politically given "rights."

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
