Well, that is if you're talking to Scott Renfroe - Republican State Senator for Colorado.
Debating a gay-rights bill on the floor of the state Senate on Monday, a Republican lawmaker took the rhetoric to new heights by equating homosexuality as a sin with murder.
"I'm not saying this (homosexuality) is the only sin that's out there," said Sen. Scott Renfroe, R-Greeley. "We have murder. We have all sorts of sin. We have adultery. And we don't make laws making those legal, and we would never think to make murder legal."
Other Republicans said the bill, which would allow partners of gay state employees to be covered by health care benefits, is an attempt by Democrats to chip away at a constitutional amendment voters passed in 2006 defining marriage as between a man and a woman.
This is merely a representation of the Christian meme of "all sin is equal in the eyes of the Lord". Of course, eating shellfish and pork is no longer a sin - as that was on par with "homosexuality" in the Old Testament.
Being gay is not illegal. Murder is.
This is part and parcel of the fanatical Right's inability to understand that their narrow view of life ( no matter what aspect they are referring to ) is muddled beyond comprehension by invoking religion.
