    i would say his comments were unreasonable and hateful. he spoke his mind, and i hope people remember that.

All he is is sharing his religious beliefs which I agree with. I can't believe people are spinning this...
    no spin here...he said it, he lives with it.

    He said it, but it isn't hateful. It's just Christian theology. The truth of Christianity is that those who are not Christians are not saved and are not part of the family of God. That doesn't mean he hated non-Christians.

    it's hateful to me, dig. and no legislator should separate his constituents in that manner. YOUR truth is but one idea among many, and has no place in governing.
