It’s the unequivocal truth: “All men (and women) are created equal,” (1st Amend) “…in Christ, there is neither male nor female,” (and gay nor straight-in the Spirit of the passage) (Gal. 3:28). It’s my understanding that ministers have a high calling to serve the needs of their members (and the world), especially when it comes to basic life freedoms. Therefore, I would join my fellow North Carolinians and sincerely recommend that Mr. Mark Harris, pastor of the First Baptist, Charlotte, withdraw from the Senate race before next Tuesday, that he may continue to attend to his pastoral opportunities and responsibilities. I would also respecfully ask that his church family allow him time to pursue refresher courses in Constitutional Law and theology.
