Godly Republican Under Fire For Following The Bible!
In yet another example of the suppression of the Christian minority, a Bible-Following Christian Republican State Representative from Georiga has come under fire from the LIEberal LameStream media:


Bobby Franklin, a Republican state representative from Georgia, said this week that letting gays serve openly in the military was the "same thing" as allowing "unrepentant drug dealer[s]" into its ranks.

In an interview with the Marietta Daily Journal, Franklin also suggested that he believes gays are engaged in "unrepentant criminal behavior."

"The Bible says it's a capital offense," Franklin said during a discussion about homosexuality and the December repeal of the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy. "You want someone with unrepentant criminal behavior? And it's not just that, neither should adulterers, neither should thieves, neither should a lot of things. The church is full of sinners, but we're told in 1st Corinthians it rattled off the homosexual, the adulterer, the thief, the liar, and such were some of you, but you've been washed, you've been justified and so forth. It's not what you were. You're not punishing a thought. But do you want an unrepentant drug dealer in the military? Same thing."

Equating homosexuality to "criminal behavior" akin to drug dealing is just the latest controversial comment from Franklin, who has repeatedly drawn criticism on similar grounds. Last week, HuffPost's Amanda Terkel reported on a particularly contentious piece of legislation introduced by Rep. Franklin, which sought to replace the term "victim" with "accuser" when dealing with cases of rape, stalking and domestic violence.
WHAT is wrong with this? Someone please explain it to me because all I see is a man doing his best to do what the Bible says he should do.

Goldy points from Brother Frankling -R Georgia. We don't want our military filled with mentally ill, deviants who feel they are above morality and allowed murder at will. Gays can not be allowed in the military.

It figures no secularist or liberal has the stones to say anything about it. Typical moonbat surrender monkies. :rolleyes:

Half of our military is made up of "unrepentant drug dealer[s]" that chose a tour of duty over a stint at Rykers Island.

Only difference is that gays actually want to serve.

This is from a few years ago but it's still relevant:
