A sin no matter how you spin it

Dear BTL,
One of the Ten Commandments is “Thou shalt not commit adultery” (Exodus 20:14).
When Mike Cox was sworn in as Michigan’s Attorney General on Jan. 1, 2003, he made a commitment to protect all the people of Michigan.
In his campaign promises, he went out of his way to specifically mention the protection of the elderly and children.
With his current appeal on the books regarding domestic partner benefits, he puts these same people at risk by eliminating their health care.
Some believe that “gay marriage” is a sin against God. Usually the individuals who protest the most have the most to hide.
I find his hypocrisy outrageous. Isn’t a sin a sin no matter how you spin it? Is this how Cox protects his own children? Which laws shall we follow? Mike needs to check his closet before he sticks his nose in mine.
