Many in that lake of fire

Regarding the July 9 letter "God's law supersedes ... man's law": His focus was on the Ninth Circuit Court ruling which overturned voter-approved Proposition 8, allowing same-sex marriages to be legal in California. He expressed his belief that all who do not live by God's law (homosexuals) will suffer unbelievable horror and blames Democrats for doing unbelievable (but unspecified) things to stay in power.

God's law consists of much more than a prohibition against homosexual conduct. God's law contains more than 600 rules and regulations covering such subjects as eating fat and blood, purification after childbirth, death by stoning for adulterers, unacceptable sacrifices, cutting hair and trimming beards, tattoos and a multitude of other things. Seems to me that anyone violating any of these numerous laws will suffer the same fate as one who indulges in homosexual activities. Looks like that lake of fire will be heavily populated.
