Singer Clay Aiken "Out of the Closet"

Singer Clay Aiken is confirming to the world: he's gay.

Aiken chose to let the cat out of the bag in the next issue of People magazine, which hits newsstands Tuesday. The magazine's cover shows Aiken holding his infant son, Parker Foster Aiken, with the headline:

"Yes, I'm Gay". The cover also quotes Aiken saying he "cannot raise a child to lie or hide things."

Parker's surrogate mother is Aiken's friend and record producer Jaymes Foster.

    Tad, you obviously don't understand that God cannot be all knowing if he doesn't know what you are going to do from second to second. The end.

    Jason, you were right on target until you got to the milk analogy. It makes no sense because it does not apply. The Bible makes clear that God is all knowing. He knows the number of our days, which means that he knows when we are going to die. If he knows when we will die, surely he knows what we will do between now and then. He has not predetermined your fate, you determine it by your free will. He just knows what you are going to do before you do it. Essentially, he let's you fail to go to heaven if that is what your will leads you to do. Yes, he let's evil people do evil things if that is their will, but they will be accountable to him as well as our justice system. He does not choose your path but he knows the path you will take. If you are uncomfortable with your choices, change them. Of course, he already knows what you will decide and when you will decide it. By the way Jason, the God I'm "describing" is the only one. God is loving, just, and will mete out punishment

    Hey obama 08 for Prez, haven't heard from you in a while. Although my last comment was not for you, since you feel your cage has been rattled, I'll try to help you to understand things again. According to your theory of everyone looking out for themselves leaving others to do whatever they want with no warning of what could result, pastors should all stop pastoring. A pastor's duty, as directed by the Bible (God's Word), is to guide the congregation and point out sin. Lay Christians are held to the same obligation to confess knowing Christ without shame and to tell his truth to others. Anyone who abides in the sin of others is just as guilty as the one who commits the sin. That being said, I too have gay friends who I love very much, but they know that I do not agree with their so called lifestyle choice. Hate the sin, but love the sinner means just that. The sin is still an abomination to God and the sinner will be held accountable. Those who abide in sin are also accountable.

    Thanks Obama I did not know Gluttony was a sin. I am 6ft 7 inches tall and weigh over 300lbs. Yes I am over weight, but I can bench press over 250 lbs. I can also run like a rabbit. I can tackle a runner with 2 fingers. I guess I should go on a diet so I can be saved? Thank You Obama

    Dave----I can't believe you have climbed that tree!!! How DARE you compare homosexuals to overweight people! I knew someone would bring this one up eventually. Being "fat" is not always a CHOICE!!! The last group of people that it is ok to make fun of is "fat" people. No one cares if you laugh at them, but don't you dare redirect your young children from seeing two guys holding hands. Where is the outrage over these people being discriminated against? The next time you see an overweight person, remember that you don't know why they are carrying extra weight. Many of them have medical conditions that cause them to be this way. This world is a big place and not everyone in it can be a size 6. Try to be a little more sensitive next time. One more thing, God didn't destroy any cities because the people who lived there.....ate too much!!!!! So, which sin do you think he sees as worse? Just a thought.

    C'mon, now ... y'all know good and well that gayness ain't normal. Even the critters know that. The parts don't fit, the mechanics are all wrong, and the results ... well, there ain't no good ones, boys. Disease and despair, but nary a baby born to gay folks. Just ain't right, y'all. Ya can set yer religion to the side, and it's still easy to see ... that gay dog just won't hunt!

    GREAT post Obama 4 Prez! God knows that there are a ton of fat people here in Eastern NC. And how do you think he feels about it? SINNERS!

    Ok, so if God knows everything, and he knows the choices that you will make in your live before you are even born... then obviously he knows who will choose to be gay, who will choose to commit adultry, who will choose to commit a murder or molest a child. So therefore... even if God "didn't" force that persons hand in breaking his laws.. he did allow that person to be born. Therefore GOD allowed a person to be born.. all the while KNOWING that the person would disobey him and die... and then he punishes that person for disobeying him by sending them to burn in a lake of fire. I mean if I know that a carton of milk in my refridgerator is rotten, and I choose to drink that milk anyway, I can't get mad at the milk because it made me sick. So Tad, it seems as though the God you are describing is setting certain people up to be rewarded with an eternity of bliss, while other people are set up from the get go being doomed to burn for all eternity in despair.

    LOL@Tad....I presume I'm "obama Bot" since you and I have talked about that word before. You have me confused with someone else. I never said anything about a paradox, all I've said is.........if someone treats you kind, treat them kind. That in the 5th grade I have seen children that have displayed homosexual tendencies. And if some is indeed homosexual that is between them and God, I have to worry about my own soul..........because no one else can send mine to Heaven or hell except me. If you see where I'm wrong, then please correct that. It is only MY opinion, it doesn't make it true. I am a science teacher, I only teach evolution in school. But I believe in God, and his son Jesus. Yes, I can believe one way and still teach another. I can be nice to gay people, and still not like their lifestyle. But to judge them isn't up to me. Understand my friend?

    So....who is Clay Aiken again....? McCain Snake Oil "obama Bot", you are confused, there is no paradox. God is all knowing and you do have free will. In other words, he knows you are wrong now and he knows whether or not you will ever get your head out of your....well..you know where. He will not pull your head out for you but he will give you the opportunity to do it for yourself and he knows in advance if you ever will or not. Although he knows the choices you will make and the results of them, he still lets you make them.
