Regarding your story about two Christian pastors who supported Maryland's same-sex marriage law, it is a real tragedy when men who profess to represent God to their constituents promote a measure that sanctions homosexuality ("Voices for marriage freedom," Nov. 11).
The same Bible that Rev. Delman Coates holds in the photo accompanying the article states that homosexuality in both men and women is an abomination. Just because the law was approved by Maryland voters doesn't make it right.
As Charles Colson so aptly put it, "never confuse the will of the majority with the will of God." These two pastors will have to answer to God for leading their flock and countless others astray.
God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for their decadent, homosexual lifestyle. Is it reasonable to think that a just God will withhold his judgment on Maryland ?
