“I never knew of any word or action of Jesus Christ that discriminated against anyone because of who they were.

And the sexual orientation of a person is just like the color of their skin or whether they’re poor or evil… or poor or rich, or whether they live in a foreign country or our country. So I think discrimination against anyone and depriving them of actual equal rights in the United States is a violation of the basic principles of the Constitution that all of us revere in this country. So, no discrimination against anyone is the best treat. Everyone equal in the eyes of God, everyone equal in the eyes of our constitution, and also equal in the eyes of the laws that our congressmen pass. So we ought to have that attitude about other people, in the eyes of God they’re just as good as we are. Thank you.”
