I was pointing out that it is completely dishonest to use the "Jesus walked with lepers" line.I am pretty sure anyone could walk around people with a dangerous infectious disease if they are they son of God and can heal people. And I am pretty sure those that had leprosy did not want to have leprosy, while most gays on the other would not want to change to heterosexuals.And? Is that really all you picked up from the leper story was that he healed them? While it did show his healing power, it was also used to illustrate the importance of compassion.
Depends on what and where that quarantine is.How compassionate do you think putting infants with HIV into quarantine is?
Aids/HIV is not a cold and Aids/HIV is a dangerous life altering disease. Especially if you can not get your hands on treatment.You're right, it's worse. Leprosy was highly contagious back in the day. HIV is not even remotely highly contagious. Shunning people because of a disease that you almost have to go out of your way to catch is so un-Christian I can't believe you're defending it

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

Well, he was my favorite because of his support of the FairTax. Since his chances are now shot, I'll need to find a new guy to stand behind.
Are there ANY politicians who have fiscal sense but aren't otherwise lunatics?
My pickings are slim for those I support.
