it certainly didn't drag her down.
But you are right some people will not have God's salvation.The doorway to Heaven is narrow.
I'm hoping i make it in. But i believe that God is my salvation and if he desires it i will be in heaven someday. Maybe that belief is just enough to help a gay find God.
Religion has nothing to do with gay marriage. Nor does the bible.

The bible is Christian, not American.

And don't give me the crap about what this country was 'founded' on, I'm Native American.

Wasn't not getting federal benefits, gays biggest argument for marriage? Ok, most people would support gays couples getting federal benefits, after all you worked for those benefits just the like everyone else did, you deserve'em
Civil union is acceptable, gay marriage is not!
The federal government does not recognize civil unions.

And sorry, but heteros don't own the word 'marriage.'

A 'marriage' is a contract. It is a piece of paper. Christians get the paper, Muslims, atheists, you name it. And people who just want property rights or benefits, who aren't even involved romantically get the paper. So do sterile people. It's a contract.

Traditional values? I think straight couples ruined that a long time ago.

Besides, it's already called marriage. And it will be fully legal soon. Because the younger generation isn't as judgmental and hateful as their parents. More than 3/4 of them support gay marriage.

So no reply on that straight divorces, unwanted children welfare post? Ok.

See how it works is, young people grow up. The next generation doesn't share your hatred. I'd much rather have their support.

What makes a person so filled with hate? What, a gay guy steal your husband? Got feelings for a lesbian and freaked out? What are you so afraid of? Come on, what is going to happen to you if two men get married? Not what goes on in your head, I mean physically how will you suffer?

Correct. But as young people get older they mature.

No, the biggest argument is equality. It's a fundamental principal that this country is founded on.

No, civil unions are not acceptable. Sorry dolt, but we're not interested in a lesser institution, and our rights are not yours to dispense.

i'll go with Ace's answer on the young people.
You you count of their support now while their heads are full of mush from liberal teachers. Lets see how well that stands the test of time. Don't expect me explain that to you too.
If you knew what you're talking about you wouldn't need so many explanations.
Questions like yours are asine.
Of course straight marriages can and sometimes do fail in various ways was that some sort of news flash for you ?
stop being asine if you want real conversations with anyone
Insults won't win you points either.

Gays obviously don't have a clue to what the meaning of hate is.
Let me school them.

A baker refusing to have a gay as a customers is just standing up for his religious convictions. Which is what this country used to stand for and still should.
A gay filled with hate goes after the baker until he bankrupts the baker just because he didn't get something he could have easily gotten somewhere else.

That is not teaching the baker how to be sensitive towards gay people.
What that taught the baker is how hate filled gay people really are.
To totally destroy a person's livelihood over a cake you can buy anywhere else.
Now that is hate. GAY HATE

The religious have no imaginary special right to discriminate their services. They aren't above the law.

No, this country has never stood on a platform of special rights for the religious.

Gays didn't go after the baker, the Civil Rights Commission did. The gays had no reason to go somewhere else. The baker by law must serve all his customers equally.

This isn't about teaching, it's about the law. He chose to break it, and there are consequences for law breakers in our country.
Earth Angel wrote:

The only lesson from this is that the religious aren't above the law. They don't get to discriminate.
Earth Angel wrote:

Any destruction of livelihood was a result of him breaking the law. Had he chosen to run his business lawfully, no destruction would be present.

No, that isn't hate, that is breaking the law.

Thanks for proving yet again what a dumb *ss you are!

Opposition to gay rights is based primarily on ignorance and religion. Neither one of those things is holding up very well.

Why? You just don't want them to have the word "marriage" so you can look down on them?
