1 Sara Di Diego = "People have been using the Bible to support their arguments on both sides since forever.  However, instead of quoting verses to seem right we should follow Abraham Lincoln's words: "My concern is not whether God is on our side," he said. "My greatest concern is to be on God's side."Work Cited:http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2011/04/12/how-the-bible-was-used-to-justify-slavery-abolitionism/"
2 Sara Di Diego = "After this video went viral, the Pastor Phil Snider released a statement:"The last few hours have been a bit of a whirlwind for me, to say the least. I’m really heartened by all of the emails, Facebook messages, and kind words that I’ve received over the last 24 hours. As I read each one, I don’t see them simply as messages that seek to affirm a particular talk I gave on a particular night in Springfield, MO (as grateful as I am for such affirmations), but rather, I view them as a reflection of the thousands — indeed, the millions — of people who, on a daily basis, are journeying together because we believe that our world can be a better place, a fairer place, a more beautiful place — for all people and not just for some — and we won’t stop calling for a more beautiful world to be born. I’m also grateful for all of the people who have come before us — many whose names history won’t recall — who have allowed us to be where we are now, on whose shoulders we stand. These folks may not be famous — more times than not they are friends or family members who have bravely told their story, often in the face of major consequences. They are the ones who have brought us to this place, and we carry their stories with us as we try to build a a more just world."Source:http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2012/10/22/pastors-shocking-gay-rights-speech-stuns-politicians-and-goes-viral/"
3 Sara Di Diego = "The ordinance they are discussing is to pass a bill that would add sexual orientation and gender identity to the non-discrimination rules in Springfield, Missouri.  Thus there would be no work or housing discrimination towards these people.Work Cited:http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2012/10/22/pastors-shocking-gay-rights-speech-stuns-politicians-and-goes-viral/"
4 Cary W = "The problem here fellow Christians is that God's word is to be lived and demonstrated, not enforced.  Whenever you take it into your hands to make laws that violate others freedoms, then you fall into grave error.  Ours fellow two legged, is to simply believe and demonstrate His love and word, and let Him work with those in error."
5 Cary W = "Wow!  Great way to demonstrate how religious dogma, based on ancient scriptures can blind us to our divisive and destructive opinions and judgments.  We must stop using the bible to enforce behavior, after all Jesus came to save the sinner, not condemn, imprison or control for cries sake"
