Gov. Ivey:  You have chosen votes over children who need to be adopted into a loving home.  In this case you have ignored all the research that points to gays being loving adoptive parents.

Here is the research that you ignored.  “Suffer the little children to come unto me.”

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.  Matthew 19:14

And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?   Jesus in Matthew 16:26

Back to the times of Dickens when religion ruled kids belonged in orphanages

The O.T Laws are Abolished Through Christ.?

Ignore this research at the peril of your soul.   God has given us science and we use it.  What was written in Leviticus 3,500 years ago as an abomination – goes with the other 90 odd abominations that Christians ignore.  And isn’ t written that Christ has abolished the O.T Laws and reduced them to Love God, Love Neighbour and Love Self?

Modern Science on Homosexuality

In March 2016, the World Psychiatric Association (WPA) consisting of 118 countries, wrote to the United Nations and all world leaders. Its member societies are presently 138, spanning 118 different countries and representing more than 200,000 psychiatrists.

This scientific body clearly stated that homosexuality CANNOT be reversed or changed and it is therefore NOT a choice.  To Franklin I would say, not loving your neighbour is an abomination.  According to Jesus when he spoke to the lawyer in the Parable of the Good Samaritan, entrance to heaven is contingent on three things:  Love of God, Love of Neighbour, and Love of Self.  The love of self, whether is it interpreted religiously or secularly, is to think of oneself as good, wholesome, worthy and a recipient of equality and justice
