“In short, a man who was about to be charged with violent crimes against defenseless minors was free to roam the Penn State campus, as he pleased,” the report said. “Reviewers determined that Penn State’s University Park campus was a beehive of activity for children, yet the University failed to issue an emergency notification when senior officials knew of the forthcoming charges against Sandusky.”
The American justice system declares a man innocent until proven guilty thus telling students that a man is about to be accused and charged of potential crimes is allowing the man to be seen as guilty before h was proven so. Christians are to stand up for justice no matter the nature of the crime and it is not just to allow anyone to be treated as guilty before they are actually proven to be guilty.
Accusation and being charged do not equate with a guilty verdict.
Conservative Christians are speaking out against Texas Pastor Brandon Hatmaker and his wife, Jen, the stars of an HGTV reality series, for claiming that the Bible affirms gay marriage, saying the couple are “100 percent false” and leading people astray from the Gospel.
Earlier this week, Brandon Hatmaker issued a lengthy Facebook post saying that he 100 percent agrees with his wife when it comes to the belief that monogamous same-sex marriages can be considered holy.
We will add our voice to this as well. The Bible is very clear that if a man lies with another man as a man lies with a woman it is an abomination. A man lies with a woman in a monogamous marriages thus even a similar union between same sex partners is wrong,sin and an abomination
