Atlanta, July 8, 2015 -Jimmy Carter, 39th President of the United States of America stated that he thinks Jesus would be OK with gay marriage.
Carter teaches Sunday School monthly at his home church, Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, GA. The former President has said that while in office he prayed several times a day. He once said, he was greatly influenced by a sermon as a young man. The sermon asked a question, “If you were arrested for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?”
This Baptist Sunday school teacher said, “I believe Jesus would. I don’t have any verse in scripture. … I believe Jesus would approve gay marriage, but that’s just my own personal belief. I think Jesus would encourage any love affair if it was honest and sincere and was not damaging to anyone else, and I don’t see that gay marriage damages anyone else.”
The former President previously stated he believes it’s “very fine for gay people to be married in civil ceremonies” yet he drew a line by requiring that churches must marry people.
Former President Carter feels it’s OK for gay weddings but they should not be allowed in churches. Two questions begging answers, if Jesus is OK with it, why then should Mr. Carter be opposed to them taking place in church?
Additionally, as a Sunday School teacher and Bible student, has the former President ever read: Leviticus 18:22; Leviticus 20:13; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; Romans 1:26-28; Genesis 1:28; Romans 1:32;
