Gays Destined To Hell

It seems like all hell has broken loose for the mayor of Vallejo, CA after comments he made just found there way into the New York Times. Mayor Osby Davis stated in an interview that homosexuals commit sins and they we are destined for hell. Now he has found himself in the middle of a bit of controversy surrounding the comment. In his last race for the mayoral seat, he won the candidacy by just two votes. His opponent was an openly gay man.

Now Mayor Davis is stating that the comments were taken out of context. What I would like to know is exactly how that comment be miscontrued. Is there a way that gays are destined to hell be can be made to sound positive? I don't know about you, but I think that someone smart enough to hold the seat of mayor should also be smart enough to shut his mouth about issues like this. And being the mayor of a city in California, he should also be smart enought to know that a comment like this would offend many of his constituents. Sure he made into the office by two votes but I'm betting should be a reelection this is one incumbent that may not make it back into the office.
