...of why I cannot understand how any homosexual could vote for and approve fully of the job President Bush is doing.
As the [US Anglican/Episcopal Church] meeting opened, President Bush, who is a Methodist Christian, suggested that gay people should not be allowed to wed.

"I believe a marriage is between a man and a woman, and I think we ought to codify that one way or the other," he told reporters in Washington.


Responding to a question from journalists, Mr Bush said it was important to "respect each individual" but that did not mean he needed to "compromise on an issue like marriage."

"I think we ought to codify [marriage between a man and a woman] and we've got lawyers looking at the best way to do that," he said.

The president declined to pass moral judgment on homosexuals but commented that he was "mindful that we're all sinners". Some Christian groups welcomed the president's remarks enthusiastically with the Reverend Pat Robertson calling for a constitutional amendment on the marriage issue.

    What's that? Separation of church and state?

    The funniest thing about the "Reverend" Pat Robertson is that he isn't even a reverend anymore. That's right ? he gave up his ordination as a baptist minister in 1988 when he ran for president. After all, you can't blatantly violate the separation of church and state.

    Of course manipulating your "ministry" to promote your political ends ? apparently there's nothing wrong with that because nobody stopped him from doing so.
