We're All The Same?
Comedian and talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres, recently interviewed Senator and Republican presidential candidate, John McCain, on her show, Ellen. Speaking of Ms. DeGeneres' stated intention to take advantage of the California Supreme Court’s recent gay marriage ruling and "marry" her partner, actress Portia di Rossi, Ms. DeGeneres made the following statement:
"Yeah, I mean, I think that it is looked at, and some people are saying that blacks and women did not have the right to vote. Women just got the right to vote in 1920, blacks didn’t have the right to vote until 1870, and it just feels like there’s this old way of thinking that we’re not all the same. We are all the same people. All of us. You’re no different than I am. Our love is the same."
"We are all the same people. All of us. You’re no different than I am. Our love is the same."
Scripturally, what does the Bible say to this statement? If you were asked to respond, what would you say, and how would you support it by scripture? Book, chapter and verse, please.
