Jimmy Carter says he believes Jesus would approve of Gay Marriage

“Jesus would approve of gay marriage” he believes said former U.S. President and born-again Christian Jimmy Carter on Sunday.

Appearing on HuffPost Live Carter commented on gay marriage arguing that he believes “Jesus would encourage any love affair as if it was honest and sincere.” Carter added that he doesn’t see that gay may marriage damages anyone else:

“I think Jesus would encourage any love affair if it was honest and sincere and was not damaging to anyone else and I don’t see that gay marriage damages anyone else.”

Though Carter has come out in support of gay marriage, he believes that churches who disagree with same-sex marriage shouldn’t have to perform such ceremonies. Carter further added that he believes everybody should have a right to get married regardless of their sex:

 “I think that everybody should have a right to get married, regardless of their sex.”

Additionally, Carter later in the interview also expressed his displeasure for abortion saying that he has had a problem with abortion:

“I have a hard time believing that Jesus would approve abortions unless it was because of rape or incest or if the mother’s life was in danger.”

  1. Jimmy! You are as wacked as ever. Apparently you believe the Bible (we’ll talk from the Bible since you brought it up – please note that John say in the first chapter that; the Word was God from the beginning and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us) is just a collection of scattered thoughts – especially where it explicitly condemns homosexuality. I suppose, too, that you feel being a “born-again” Christian is equally subjective so you can just throw it around for what ever reason suits you. Therefore, you are not obligated to the Truth. Again to the Bible, it was Jesus who said, “I am the way, the TRUTH, and the life and no man approaches the Father except by the way, the TRUTH, and the life”; Himself, Jesus Christ. Being president ONCE does not elevate you to the level of interpreting WHAT Jesus THINKS!!!

    Furthermore, like all leftist LIARS (you shall know a tree by the fruit that it bears – more Bible) you have zero understanding that Rights are given by the Creator thru our human nature THAT (and this is very important. tho almost NO ONE gets it) do NOT infringe upon the rights of any other human being! That said in a word, is called EQUAL JUSTICE!

    So, if marriage is a right and no one is willing to marry you HOW are you going to exercise that “Right”??? You cannot force anyone to marry you because to do so would infringe upon their right to CHOOSE!!

    Marriage is not a RIGHT!!! It is a privilege offered by someone who is willing to marry you. Get this; God gives rights. Man gives privileges – NEVER RIGHTS!! The best man – any man, president or otherwise – can do it Protect rights!

    I do not judge you except by the words you’ve spoken (and your communist socialist actions as president). Who are you to judge Jesus Christ IN SPITE of the words He has spoken?!?!?!

    You are summarily WRONG, mister carter. W-R-O-N-G!

  2. ‘Way back when’ he ran for President there was a Pogo cartoon showing Carter trying to walk on water and saying “I can do this”……apparently he thinks he did….

  3. Jimmy Carter should look at 1 Corinthians in the bible that says ‘He that sleepith with a man as though he were a woman shall not see the Kingdom of God.

  4. Jimmy Carter should consult the Bible, before assuming to know what God would approve of
