Hecker and Rowan can marry, but gays can't: Comment Of The Day

Pastor Peter Geisendorfer-Lindgren at Lord of Life Church in Maple Grove says that he married jailbirds Denny Hecker and Christi Rowan because he figures that's what Jesus would have done.

His church believes that "marriage should be rooted in steadfast love of God and that God's faithfulness and self-giving love are the models of the relationship in a marriage," commenter Frank notes, so marrying two criminals is OK.

But gays? Not so much.

So I would be curious how the Pastor, who says "I did it because I don't think Jesus wants us to eat only with those who are worthy of our invitation," justifies a marriage between between two individuals who will be incarcerated at separate facilities are more worthy of marriage than a committed gay couple.

What would Jesus do? Tell us what you think in the comments.
