    Cash Michaels made an invaluable comment this past Sunday and I’m glad to hear this from Rev. Barber.

    THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE! It is not about hate or discriminating, It is all about JESUS. God ordianed Marriage between 1 Man and 1 Woman. He had reproduction in mind. I don’t hate anyone or discriminate against anyone, but I do follow God’s word. When he created Adam he took from Adam’s rib a WOMAN and called her Eve. We have an intellegent God! God even wrote in Lev. that man should not lay with his brother’s wife. This is bible! Either you are going to stand for something or you will fall for anything!!! I am VERY SHOCKED THAT A PREACHER WILL NOT STAND ON GOD’S WORD!

    If you follow God’s word then you are a conflicted person. Both the Old and New Testament can be confusing on issues concerning men and women, marry, don’t marry, stone this person for that reason, kill this person to prove yourself to me (God), don’t kill, at least two creation stories, and the list goes on.

    You don’t hate anyone but you’re willing to deny people their civil rights because they are different then you and are breaking God’s law. Of course there’s the “God’s law” is higher than man’s law thing but we’ve seen what kind of country is created when “God’s law” is interpreted by man, cruel and unusual punishment.

    I’ve been on your side of this and many other issues but one day I woke up. Blind obedience to anything or anyone – be it man or god – is a terrible thing for any person. In the Jewish faith the philosophy of making your case before God is encouraged. It is a good thing to challenge anyone or thing that says blind obedience is a show of true faith and love to god. They probability want your money obediently given.

    Rob said it best. Yikes!

    Nannette, according to some interpretations of the Bible God also ordained that the races could not intermix — hence the laws against inter-racial marriages Furthermore, the Bible requires that we not eat pork, or shellfish, that we not mix dairy and meat and that we not mix fabrics. Sounds to me like you are picking and choosing . . .

    Bless you, Reverend Barber. You have articulated the difference between religious marriage (the Sacrament) and the civil contract. It is NOT about Jesus, or or ANY other religious figure. It is about CIVIL RIGHTS.

    At the day of judgement Rev. Barber will answer to God himself for speaking against the Bible.
