For several hundred years now, the Bible has been a source of confusion  for humankind. So much so that we have over a thousand different religions, each with their own peculiar interpretation of scripture.

And then there are people like a Georgia florist who pick and choose which so-called sins in the Bible are particularly bad ones.

CNN’s Gary Tuchman interviewed several florists in Georgia, asking employees and owners if they would serve homosexuals. Every single one of them said they would not due to their religious beliefs.

Melissa Jeffcoat was one of the florists interviewed, and her confounding response underscores everything that many Americans find repulsive about certain Christians.

Below is the transcript of the exchange:

Tuchman: … In the Ten Commandments, it says you can’t commit adultery…

Jeffcoat: Right.

Tuchman: It says you need to honor your father and mother.

Jeffcoat: Mhmm.

Tuchman: If someone didn’t honor their parents or committed adultery, would you serve them?

Jeffcoat: Yes.

Tuchman: Well, why would you serve them but not serve someone who is gay?

Jeffcoat: It’s just a different kind of sin to me and I just don’t believe in it.

A “different kind of sin?”
That’s an asinine statement on several levels. Let’s begin with the fact that our sexual orientation, no matter how many times ignorant folks deny it, is not a choice. There isn’t single person out there who chose to be attracted to the same sex when their bodily hormones naturally fire up for the opposite sex. Not. A. Single. Person.
An adulterer, on the other hand, made the choice to cheat on their spouses. This includes many Christians. It is therefore beyond despicable that so-called Christians who have committed adultery and/or are divorced through their own choices condemn homosexuals who did not make the conscious choice to be that way.
Furthermore, “thou shalt not commit adultery” is one of the sacred 10 Commandments in the Bible. Apparently, God decided that being gay or lesbian wasn’t a big enough “sin” to include in His top ten list.
Aside from that, what happened to “all sins are created equal?’
It’s bad enough that these psuedo-Christians don’t seem to believe that every person was created equal.
