Obama and the Book of Romans

Barack Obama weighs in on the Scriptures:

I believe in civil unions that allow a same-sex couple to visit each other in the hospital or transfer property to each other.

I don't think that it should be called marriage, but I think that it is a legal right that they should have that is recognized by the state.

If people find that controversial, then I would refer them to the Sermon on the Mount, which I think, you know, is in my mind, for my faith, more central than an obscure passage in Romans.

That's my view.

But we can have a respectful disagreement on that.

Here's the obscure passage I think Sen. Obama is referring to:

For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. Romans 1:26-27.

We need to Pray for Barrack Obama and his Family... and to fast as well.

We need to Pray the Democrats win - over the Republican Smears, Hatred and Envy.

We need these New Ideas that are Long Overdue - to come to Fruition.

We need people to Come from Other Parties or to just Come and Throw their Support behind the Democrats.

We need to Pray that once the Democrats get into the White House - by this same Miracle - that they are able to Accomplish their Goals and Change America and Inspire and Change the world.

We need to Pray for the Safety of all Involved.

We need to Pray for the Best and most Inspiring Presidency in a long while.

We need to Pray for Peace and Prosperity and the Fulfilment of Hope.

Then we need to Pray that once Hope is Fulfilled -that Hope is Fulfilled - Again and Again.
