Beware of Amendment: It’s Not What You Think

April 30, 2012

From the Rev. Dr. Ray Howell III, senior minister at First Baptist Church on West Third Avenue, Lexington, NC at The Dispatch:

Every person, regardless of sexual orientation, is a child of God, created in the image of God and deserves to be treated with love, dignity and respect. This amendment opens the door for needless discrimination, marginalization and judgment. Jesus never said one word about homosexuality, but he spoke many words about injustice, unrighteousness and hypocrisy.

Hat tip to David Transou, my high school English teacher, who changed my life. As you might imagine, he’s catching some flack for posting this on his Facebook page.
