Franklin Graham, scion of the planet's godliest family, has declared that by endorsing same-sex marriage Barack Obama has "shaken his fist at god." Catchy. Nearly as much as it is disgusting.
It's been pointed out by people -- and I'll have to take their word -- that in the New Testament there's not a word spoken by Jesus about homosexuality. As we've seen, the more a preacher rails about it, the more likely he'll turn out to be gay himself. So I surmise that Jesus' silence wasn't out of frustration. Or projection. Maybe it's because he actually meant that part about loving one's fellow man, and treating them as you'd be treated yourself. Maybe it's because he didn't consider bashing gays consistent with his message -- his liberal hippie message -- of peace and love.
Whatever the explanation, most Christians of the evangelical teabagging variety have chosen, like religionists of all flavors, to be damn selective in their hewing to the word. Far as I'm concerned, until Franklin Graham demands of his flock that they murder their sons if they don't keep the sabbath, or their daughters if they're not virgins when married, he'll have no credibility with me.
