Mike Huckabee says the California Prop 8 and DOMA decisions by SCOTUS would cause Jesus to weep.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the Supreme Court's Defense Of Marriage Act (DOMA) and California Prop 8 decisions are proving to be controversial.
"My thoughts on the SCOTUS ruling that determined that same sex marriage is okay: 'Jesus wept.' 5 people in robes said they are bigger than the voters of California and Congress combined. And bigger than God. May He forgive us all."
The Bible verse that says Jesus wept is found in the book of John. Huffington Post has pointed out that Mike Huckabee is taking this Bible verse out of context since "Jesus wept" refers to the death of Lazarus, not homosexuality or anything related to the SCOTUS decisions on California's Prop 8 or DOMA.
The Bible's New Testament only refers to homosexuality several times. The first is in Romans, which says:
"[F]or even their females exchanged the natural use for that which is contrary to nature, and likewise also the males, having left the natural use of the female, were inflamed by their lust for one another, males with males, committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was fitting for their error."
1 Timothy refers to "those who abuse themselves with men" but 1 Corinthians is more explicit:
"Do you not know that the unrighteous and the wrongdoers will not inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived (misled): neither the impure and immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor those who participate in homosexuality"
Do you think it's fair for Mike Huckabee to say "Jesus wept" in reference to the Supreme Court's decision on California's Prop 8 and DOMA?
