Demo­cratic pre­tenders pre­side

The Washington Times Daily - - Opinion -

Lately, there is much de­bate about ho­mo­sex­u­al­ity and same-sex “mar­riage.” But Jews, Chris­tians and oth­ers who ac­cept the Old Tes­ta­ment as God’s word should al­ready know that those are sins and are not de­bat­able.

It seems the Demo­cratic Party is try­ing to cast it­self as the pro-ho­mo­sex­u­al­ity party. This is ev­i­dent from the le­gal­iza­tion of same-sex “mar­riage” in sev­eral states con­trolled by Democrats. Ho­mo­sex­u­al­ity also was rec­og­nized on the fed­eral level by the re­cent killing of the mil­i­tary’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” pol­icy. Pres­i­dent Clin­ton signed that bill into law.

Un­for­tu­nately, too many of our elected of­fi­cials are Democrats pre­tend­ing to be Chris­tians. No real Chris­tian would go against God’s word, and yet many elected of­fi­cials who claim to be Chris­tians are do­ing just that. They no longer be­lieve they will have to pay for their dis­obe­di­ence, ap­par­ently.

Why would any­one who pro­fesses to fol­low the Bi­ble vote for a per­son or party who sup­ports those is­sues? Yet many Chris­tians strongly sup­port and vote for Democrats, be­com­ing ac­com­plices by em­pow­er­ing the party to make those laws that go against the Bi­ble’s ad­mo­ni­tions.

We would do well to re­mem­ber that there is a Judg­ment Day when God, not Democrats, will de­cide where each of us will spend eter­nity. ROBERT BOUDREAUX Wal­dorf, Md.
