Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean claims to be reaching out to red-state voters, but yesterday, he suggested that opponents of homosexual "marriage" are bigots.
Therein lies Howard Dean’s opinion of Christianity. It amazes me that shortly after 9/11, a massive public message campaign was launched to help save Islam’s image. So now, it’s not politically correct to consider Islam a violent religion intent on murdering the innocent in the name of god, even though their scriptures command followers to "convert or kill".
So when MY religion, and I can quote the scripture directly, states that homosexuality is a sin, am I afforded the same respect? Are my beliefs tolerated? No.
Instead, I am called a bigot. Not because I harbor any ill feelings towards homosexuals, not because I want to deny them basic human rights, not because I hate homosexuals. No. I am called a bigot because I adhere to the teaching of my religion.
Thanks, Mr. Dean. You've just reaffirmed the anti-Christian mentality that your party holds.
