Former president of the United States has never been more sure in his entire life: Jimmy Carter states that God would hit ‘like’ for gay marriage anytime, anywhere. And once again, we have arrived at a certain point where, gay marriage is once again questioned even after the Supreme Court’s ruling has been given.
Being a full- fledged Christian and faith believer, President Carter appears to have always been a true supporter for the rights of homosexuals stating that ‘everybody should have the right to get married’.
Within recent interviews, he did not face any difficulties whatsoever, directly admitting that gay marriage is not an actual issue to him. His direct involvement with the church, Carter has stated, has always been considered by him, a safety zone which, has not only helped him to get passed his presidential term without any complications, but has also managed to give him the necessary level of strength to get past any situations.
Although Carter does not have any kind of evidence to prove his claim that, God is a supporter of gay marriage, he truly believes that our savior would not have allowed his own kind to discriminate against one another. On the other hand, Carter has even gone so far as saying that Jesus, would also express his approval of abortions, but only in the cases in which rape and the life of the mother are questioned.
Clearly showing signs of honesty, Jimmy Carter comes clean with his opinion about the Chalkstone shooting; after the African American Methodist church had decided to forgive the person who had taken 9 of their members lives, from Carter’s point of view, who also attended an AME church, sparing the life of the criminal and showing mercy and kindness was indeed the correct choice.
As a pure believer of Christianity, Jimmy Carter accepts and tries to explain that ‘true forgiveness’ is the main quality that makes the world revolve, that it is the one characteristic which man can both give and receive.
Event thought the society in which we live in is not accepting of all causes, people must understand that there are other issues that seem to have an even greater impact. Gay marriage, should not in fact be considered one of the leading causes towards stereotyping. In order to become accepted, people must learn to live among other human beings that may or may not share the same objective opinions and be as open minded as Jimmy Carter is.
