Video: Christians should oppose same-sex marriage; Marriage of God and law totally kosher

by Jeremy Hooper

Pastor Kellan Criswell used to canvass for the Human Rights Campaign. Now he petitions young people to believe that the "homosexual lifestyle" is against God, that one cannot be both Christian and religious, and that people of faith are called to stand against *CIVIL* marriage equality under the law on the basis of their chosen theological views. He does this out of "love," of course:

"There's no such thing as a committed homosexual Christian. That's just what the word of God says"
...
"Governments should, as they're making laws -- politicians, people as they're lobbying for different laws and things -- should do so with the intent of acknowledging what righteousness is as defined by the Lord and his word, and as they're making laws, they should seek to promote justice and laws that are righteous as defined by God."…"Are you voting for something that God is inherently not in favor of? That to me is the real question."

Law as defined by God? Hmm. Well I do have a copy of his thesaurus, atlas, Godly Book of Eternal World Records, and book of 101 slang words that don't include Him or his son. However, I seem to have misplaced his one, personally penned, infallible dictionary. Surely if I ask all of America to lend me a copy, everyone will send the exact same edition with the exact same interpretations -- right?
