Makes sense, considering De Rossi isn't actually her real name, it's Amanda Lee Rogers.

Therefore, homosexuals in every generation should ever remain aware that they will always be under the hot wrath of the Almighty God and every sane and godly human mind as long as they are homosexuals. Foolish constitutional tolerance of homosexuality by an already heathen and atheistic america should not be mistaken to be a true acceptance by the Holy God. By deceptively posing as "Christians" "ministers" and trying to thrust themselves into a fake atmosphere of "church" does not change the true God and His truths that homosexuality is an abomination and a very heinous crime (Leviticus 18:22).

Therefore homosexuals will always be regarded by God as "dogs" (Deuteronomy 23:18) who cannot enter His holy Kingdom while they are yet homosexuals (1 Corinthians 6:9-10). They therefore rightly remain immutably under God's corporeal sentence of death (Leviticus 20:13) and His eternal sentence of hell.

It's so funny...people seem to think if gays are allowed to marry and have the same rights as hetero couples, then there will cease to be enough couples left to produce children and make sure mankind continues. Seriously people, think about it!! I'm sure your world will continue on without any changes if gays are allowed the same rights as everyone else in this world. Live and let live.
