Rolling Stone apparently had a difficult time grasping comments by Sen. Sam Browback on homosexual 'marriage':
It isn't every day you see the Bible quoted in Rolling Stone magazine, but Sen. Sam Brownback's reference to Jesus' words appears to have been misunderstood.

In an article titled "God's Senator," Rolling Stone quotes the Kansas Republican as lamenting the fate of countries that have legalized gay marriage.

"You'll know them by their fruits," Brownback said.

Rolling Stone's writer reports there was an awkward silence as it sounded to him like the senator was referring to gays as "fruits."

The Bible passage cited by Brownback actually warns that false prophets can be discerned by the results they produce.

Ah, the values of Biblical literacy.

Now that is funny - thank goodness he didn't say anything about salt & light, somebody might have asked if he wanted salt on his fruit.
