    Have things changed so much that this is now not
    an issue.

    But regardless how would you feel if she turned
    out to be the first woman gay on the Supreme Court?

    What makes you think that Myers is gay? Do you have some evidence that we don't know about?

    We don't have any reason to believe she is gay. Anyway, it's none of our business and it wouldn't matter one way or the other.

    Couldn't answer because my response wasn't listed. It wouldn't make a difference since I don't particularly think she was a very good pick. I hope she proves me wrong.

    I think that gays and lesbians and transgendered persons have reprobate minds and that God has turned His back on them and we should do the same thing as God does except that we should try to evangelize them and change them back to hetrosexuals as God made them.

    Romans 1:28 (KJV) And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    "We don't have any reason to believe she is gay. Anyway, it's none of our business and it wouldn't matter one way or the other."-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The supreme court was given one third of the governing power in our nation, but they actually weild more power as they have overstepped their bounds. It is no small thing to be a Supreme Court Justice. How could one say if that if one of thier leaders was committing a sin the Bible say is abominable, it is none of their business?'

    There is a class of Christian in the world today that will morph their beliefes into whatever it takes for the world not to be threatened by them. Such christians refuse to allow Christ to be a stumbleing block to the world, because stumbleing blocks are offensive and not PC. How does Christ feel when he see that the nicest most unoffensive Christians in the world are in fact ashamed of him because He is an uncompromising stumbleing block.

    I find it interesting that, with no sources to indicate such, this question is even considered.

    Seems to me to be a method of slandering someone in an indirect manner. Sorta along the line of, "Hey, ASLANSPAL, have you stopped beating your wife?"

    What IS the point of the OP?

    I think his point was to see what people would think in such and instance. I find the results very intresting, and shocking. Very eye opening poll!

    He is trying to find out how many Christians would support a gay justice. The point is pretty clear. Perhaps he should have just said, "who among you would support a gay justice?"

    That would have been fine. I find it terribly unjust to link the woman's name with homosexuality.

    Here would be an equally offensive and just as unfair post.

    If ASLANSPAL were gay, would you object to him posting on the Baptist Board?

    I see your point, perhaps Aslanpal would be glad to reword the poll. But I don't think hypotheticals about public figures is quite on the same level as a hypotheticals about someone you are talking with.

    Neither are in any way the right thing to do.

    I would be happy to have ALSLANPAL start the poll again and close this one is he desires.

    ""I would be happy to have ALSLANPAL start the poll again and close this one is he desires""

    I think that is reasonable, Aslanspal. Please start it again with new wording. I would be intrested to see how many Christians think a justice being gay is a non-issue.

    Dallas gay leaders OK Miers pick
    Only known record of her stances on gay rights
    surfaces in lesbian’s garage
    By David Webb
    Staff Writer
    President Bush on Monday nominated Dallas native Harriet Ellan Miers to the United States Supreme Court — turning the eyes of the nation on a 16-year-old document stored in the garage of longtime lesbian leader Louise Young.
    Bush named Miers, the White House counsel, to replace retiring Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. Miers, formerly a prominent Dallas lawyer and a past president of the State Bar of Tex-as, is a longtime, close associate of Bush’s. She has no prior experience as a judge.
    When she heard the news of Bush’s nomination, Young re-membered that Miers had appeared before the Lesbian/Gay Political Coalition’s screening committee when Miers ran for the Dallas City Council in 1989. The politician did not ask for the political coalition’s endorsement, but she filled out the questionnaire and spoke to the group.
    Rummaging through the storage boxes that she had moved from Dallas to Vermont and back, Young found the document. Its existence has now been reported by virtually every news organization in the country.

    Sincerely

    Polls cannot be changed. I will close this thread and request that put forth a new poll.
