Lord of Lords

This week both Barak Obama and Joel Olsteen made comments about homosexuality. The views were diametrically opposed. President Obama talked about how wonderful it was that homosexuals would be able to serve in the military. Pastor Olsteen stated that homosexuality is a sin, and has been backed up by several other pastors.

Now Pastor Olsteen added some what, saying basically that all sins are the same and that homosexuality is just as bad as pride. Now I am not sure just why Olsteen chose pride, but it is an interesting choice. Pride is one of the seven deadly sins, deemed by some churches as a sin that can cause one to lose their salvation. Pride is a sin roundly denounced in the Old and New Testaments, and by many is considered among the worst of sins.
