More on Dean and the Bible: Democrat President hopeful Howard Dean says that he signed a civil unions law for gays because God told him to. Dean, who's really studied the Bible, told The Washington Post that:
"The overwhelming evidence is that there is very significant, substantial genetic component to it," Dean said in an interview Wednesday. "From a religious point of view, if God had thought homosexuality is a sin, he would not have created gay people."
Over at National Review Online's "Corner" blog, Tim Graham makes the following point:
Sure, Howard, I remember the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. God thought about destroying them for their sins, and then remembered he'd given everyone the genetic predisposition for all that, so it couldn't be sin, and they were spared? Dean is telling voters that the Word of God is irrelevant to his religious views.
Dean's theology appears to consist of: "If it feels good, do it." Interesting, but hardly Biblical.
