2000-year-old voter guide

Evangelical preacher Loran Livingston tells his congregation, nudge-nudge-wink-wink, that gay marriage is more important than their silly threadbare pocketbooks and that they should vote for President accordingly.

The younger ones get quiet and don't commit to hurting themselves on his say-so about what God thinks.

The older ones keen about where morals have gone during their lifetimes, and that means sexual mores to them, but they are still going to vote for the ticket with the adulterer who ran around on his first wife and the pre-marital fornicator who eloped and delivered a baby eight magic months later.

I have no problem with people making mistakes in marriage or in birth control and learning from them. What I don't like is for people to cut themselves all the slack they need while offering the rest of us nothing but condemnation.
