Opposition to same-sex marriage boosts presidential candidate in Costa Rica
A popular revolt against the imposition of same-sex marriage has transformed the political landscape of Costa Rica, propelling a once-obscure Christian evangelical singer to a first-place finish in presidential voting this month and putting the outspoken critic of gay marriage in a strong position to win the spring runoff.

Well, I have a friend who took a poll of 300 people on that very question, he asked them: If you were able to take a pill to change yourself from homosexual to heterosexual, would you do it? And something like 95% of men said: âNo.â" -deathstyle Romana Schlesinger, a prominent sodomite activist &organizer of Sodomy parades in Slovakia, referred to it as to 'way of living' " - Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?Be not deceived:neither fornicators,nor idolaters,nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves,nor covetous,nor drunkards,nor revilers,nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.And such were some of you:but ye are washed,but ye are sanctified,but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus"1Cor6:9-11a
