And one of the things I read recently that “fills me with words” is Mike Huckabee's Twitter comment on the gay marriage rulings. The Internet is abuzz about it. Google it and you will come up with pages and pages of results. Some in support. Some that thoughtfully disagree. Some that poke fun. I am no doubt one of the last bloggers to post about it..but post, I must, because it is just so....annoying. Huckabee said:
My thoughts on the SCOTUS ruling that determined that same sex marriage is okay: "Jesus wept."
Really? You really think that?
I'm more inclined to believe that Jesus weeps over things like the torture and murder of Matthew Shepard. Or Mark Carson, the man who was shot point blank in the face in Greenwich Village this May; harassed and killed by a stranger because he was gay. Or what about the countless lives that are wasted through suicide or years of reparative therapy....
Jesus wept about the SCOTUS ruling? Nuh-uh.
Next post….more about Jesus wept.
