Presidential candidates Barack Obama, Ron Paul and Fred Karger say being gay is not a sin.

Gay glossy The Advocate compiled responses from the candidates on the issue.

The president answered “no” to the question, then gave as an example that he has issued presidential proclamations declaring June as Gay Pride Month.

GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney is listed as dodging the question.

“Nice try,” Romney told CNN host Piers Morgan. “I separate quite distinctly matters of personal faith from the leadership that one has in a political sense.”

The Advocate also lists Rick Santorum as not answering the question. However, in an interview with CNN's Piers Morgan, Santorum made his feelings on the issue quite clear.

“Of course, the Catholic Church teaches that homosexuality is a sin. I'm a Catholic and I subscribe to the Catholic Church's teaching,” Santorum answered, then added: “But that's not relevant from the standpoint of how I view these issues from a public policy point of view.”

“The government has no business in your private life,” Ron Paul is quoted as saying, “so if one person is allowed to do something, so should everyone else.”

Karger, who is openly gay, is also listed as not believing that being gay is a sin.
