    Homosexuality is a choice by man not by God. God didn't force you to sleep with the same sex, you chose to do it. If there were no women, then there would be no choice.

    Speak up Spence. Would love to hear your response. Your decision to be a bigot is between you and your creator.

    Be as gay as you want. Be as liberal as you want. Reference your creator, your god, it is a gfy for me. You are a fraud, a fake. BTW, I am a progressive.

    Nice move, he blames what the Bible says on Mike Pence.. He says that God made him that way. So that is the excuse, we can use when we brake any law. Anyway, the Gay lobby has a lot of money ready for him.
