Here’s a quote from a great man of God – if more were this accepting of different views (not to mention logical…) we wouldn’t have the chasms we do: “I’m a Baptist, and I believe that each congregation is autonomous and can govern its own affairs. So if a local Baptist church wants to accept gay members on an equal basis, which my church does by the way, then that is fine,” Carter said. “If a church decides not to, then government laws shouldn’t require them to.” Good definition of a democracy and both political and religious freedom.

“I never knew of any word or action of Jesus Christ that discriminated against anyone,” Carter said, according to a video from MLive.
