How Many Gays Must God Create Before We Accept It?

Thought this statement from State Representative Steve Simon (DFL Hopkins/St. Louis Park) regarding a proposed Minnesota constitutional amendment based largely on religious beliefs. Rep. Simon says if sexual orientation is innate as science is showing us, and not a lifestyle choice, then God created those gay people just as he created us. He goes on to ask, "How many more gay people does God have to create before we ask ourselves whether or not God actually wants them around?"

I would add, "How many times to do we have to debate these religious issues in our constitutions and secular laws? When do we stop wasting time on these unnecessary, politically-driven debates and go back to legislating real law?"

A very original argument by Rep. Simon and a brilliant new stance on this over-debated subject. However, it is probably wasted on the religious since a majority of the devout are usually wary of any type of scientific principles or intelligence. That is, until they need it to save their lives, make a call, make their coffee or transport them to work. But even then there is always the Church of Christian Science.
