“Capitalism is the astounding belief that the most wickedest of men will do the most wickedest of things for the greatest good of everyone.” John Maynard Keynes
Further nowhere in the NT is homosexuality identified as a sin (though oddly in Romans 1 is named as a punishment for idolators).
In short Vance is just doing anything to defend the ignorance and stupidity of Carson.
Romans 1:26-27God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
Could it be this that Carson was referring to, not he condemning but the scripture?
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure" - 2006 Senator Obama...leadership failure indeed!
He does say clearly that ANYBODY who judges the sinners in Romans 1 is condemned himself. And of course that's exactly what Carson and the rest of the hypocrites are doing. As it typical, conservatives have turned the New Testament message on its head.
Rom 2:1 - Therefore you have no excuse, whoever you are, when you judge others; for in passing judgment on another you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, are doing the very same things.
