We live in interesting times, times where the U.S. President, while claiming to be a Christian, criticizes Christians at a prayer breakfast for not being loving to homosexuals.
This in spite of the fact that BOTH the Old and New Testament condemn ANY sexual activity outside the sphere of biblical marriage — marriage of one man and one woman.
