Paul refused to call homosexuality a sin.
It is a sin, yet for too many people, because they do not understand that sin relates to our standing before God, while crime and morality belongs more to the domain of the secular state.
There is nothing inconsistent about a politician refusing to identify sin or label a member of the community a sinner. This distinction does not vitiate the importance of right standing with God, yet should diminishing the standing of the state.
For this reason, among others, Billy Graham disdained a political career. The very notion was beneath the standing, the call that God had placed on his life.
Ron Paul flubbed incredibly when he commented on homosexuality. We are not all God's children. Every human being is one of God's creatures, but we enter into Sonship by faith, not by force of fiat.
And the state has nothing to do with this matter at all.
Ron Paul flubbed the issue. So what? Pastors and radio commentators have no business asking questions which pertain to the personal followings of a candidate running for office.
