Gay Issues

Below is a link to an article entitled, "Democratic candidates weigh in on gay issues."

Here is an excerpt . . . "Former Sen. John Edwards found himself discussing whether he is comfortable around gay people — he said he is. New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson appeared to struggle with a question about why people become gay or lesbian. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton ended up defending the record of her husband, former President Clinton, on gay rights . . . "

"Clinton said she made a mistake in March when she steered around a question on whether homosexuality was immoral. She was asked about it after Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said he considered homosexual acts immoral and similar to adultery. He later said he should have not expressed his personal views. Clinton later issued a statement saying she did not think being gay was immoral.";_ylt=AmFT5mhFgZD_81.U51rmd6gE1vAI

If I find any similar articles on Republican candidates' views on this issues, I'll post it. I do not think that we should seek to change the world through politics--Jesus is the only hope for the world, and "morality" without Christ will save no one. But this article does point towards the huge shift in understanding on this issue in the last 30-40 years.
