Obama: Sermon on Mount Justifies Same-Sex Unions

That Obama considers any part of the Bible obscure or unimportant is a telling sign — his brand of ‘Christianity’ is apparently ‘Scripture a la carte’. — PID

Mar 3, 2008 (CNSNews.com) — Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) told a crowd at Hocking College in Nelsonville, Ohio, Sunday that he believes the Sermon on the Mount justifies his support for legal recognition of same-sex unions. He also told the crowd that his position in favor of legalized abortion does not make him “less Christian.” “I don’t think it [a same-sex union] should be called marriage, but I think that it is a legal right that they should have that is recognized by the state,” said Obama. “If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount, which I think is, in my mind, for my faith, more central than an obscure passage in Romans.” St. Paul’s Epistle to the Romans condemns homosexual acts as unnatural and sinful.
