It can be, but it's more importantly a civil ceremony. The STATE is who sanctions marriage, not churches.

If marriage were solely a religious ceremony, then it would be denied to atheists. It isn't. It's a civil institution.

There is nothing fruitful, religious or traditional about gay marriage. Most gays that performs gay sexual acts are atheist anyway. Let them have their reunion and get their government benefits is another name besides marriage.

No compromise is required. An institution already exists and we're entitled to it. Sorry you don't like it, but tough.

How would you feel if you walked into a business and they said "Nope. You're a Christian. Leave."? Would you feel that you had been treated well?
Do you think the black people who were refused service at restaurants were treated well?
i've explained this before
You can't compare the civil rights movement with the gay movement.

are you leaving too ? Or was Angel just another one of your screen names ?
gays try and intimidate just look at what they did to that baker

Lesbian waitress also tried to to intimidate that couple with lies about gay comments they never said ( do i know how that feels )

so yeah gays in here try to intimidate all the time. I could care less.
But i'll still point it out for what it is part of the GAY AGENDA
gays use intimidation to get what they want rather then try and work things out.

Peace, make love not war. Now look at us:) In case you missed my earlier post.
Winston S. Churchill 'If you're not a liberal at twenty you have no heart, if you're not a conservative at forty, you have no brain. There is a lot of truth to Winston Churchill saying.
Yes most of us change as we get older and mature. Don't count on the young peoples vote forever.
They already do. The kids that grew up with our kids are now almost in their 30's and are ashamed of their parents hatred. The new generations don't want to be like you, they don't want your conflicted world.

I'm not a liberal or a conservative.

Incest is acceptable too?
this is why i don't play the quote the bible game
you are taking it totally wrong.
First you would need to really study the Jewish Faith and customs of that time period.
Second you have to understand their importance of preserving their blood lines THROUGH THE MALE side of the family.
And Lastly it had nothing to do with perverted incestuous behavior. It was not about sex at all.
It was about having a blood line child to preserve the family.

this is why i say you can't just drop off quotes and miss represent them like that.
The bible needs to be read as a whole. You need to study what is behind those PASSAGES.
Its not a book of quotes.

For those who say why do i need church ? all i need is to believe in God.
Well this is why people need church to explain what they read.
Considering some of the responses i get ( from XBreath and others ) a lack of understanding is rampant in here.

No hatred honey, just honest reality;

Marriage is a miraculous union of two genders,
a union so profound,
it is described as the union of Mars and Venus.
It reunites humanity to the roots of life,
while at the very same time
hosting the best and natural
birth place of future human life.
It is the blend of masculinity and femininity.
The wisdom of logic and intuition united.
Strength and delicacy perfectly balanced.
Protection and nurture combined as one.
A complimentary merging that multiplies the unbiased blend of humanity's genders.

A ss couple cannot equate to a single one of these distinctions.

Actually traditional 'marriage' falls quite short. Divorce rates, unwanted children, twenty minute marriages, and on and on. You have no right to defend 'straight marriage'.
Straight people abuse the right to marriage.
Right in front of your face isn't it?
Broken vows and abuse don't negate the profound impact that faithful marriage produces.

There is no question that some straight people abuse marriage. However, I simply noted that ss couples don't equate to marriage. You have no reasoned rebuttal that they do, do you?

Sorry KiMare, we're not so insecure about our relationships that we do that like you apparently need to. We don't hold our marriages up "next to" any other.
We don't need to.
Have a wonderful day though fool.
Sure you try to. That's what this is all about. I'm simply pointing out that in spite of courts and demands, ss couples are only ever mutually sterile, pointlessly duplicate gendered halves of marriage. And that's just a start!

The real question is, why don't homosexuals have the courage and basis to establish their own relational identity?

Heterosexuals did. And you want to copy them.

Ss couples? Zero.
96% of marriages historically include children.

If old couples, sick couples and couples that have a choice often have or do procreate, don't you think we should require ss couples to mutually procreate at least SOME of the time??? Especially since most marriages procreate...
Old couples most often have already procreated.
Sick couples are often cured.
Couples that did not plan on children, often change their minds.
Ss couples? Not ONE, ZERO, have every mutually procreated.
No gay dares to answer?

Where did I say there 'were'. I'm asking why ss couples should not be mandated to equate at least to old couples, sick couples and couples who have a choice.

The Constitution protects my right for expression of my faith.

The bakery did not deny service. They offered alternatives, just not the desecration of marriage.

Yea, it does. It does negate. That's what straight people have turned marriage into, a joke. The Majority of straight people do not respect marriage, according to divorce rate, and therefore have lost the credibility to defend it.

Again, marriage is a contract, a piece of paper. I can say I will spend my life with my partner, that doesn't change our taxes, property, children or names until that piece of paper is signed. Christians sign it, Muslims, atheists, everyone. Wether or not it is a legal and binding marriage depends on a piece of paper. It is not for any one group or sex, it is a contract.

Do you honestly think anything anyone says ever is going to one day make you think,'oh gay marriage is ok!'? Then accept that it exists and you don't have to like it, but you do have to behave like a person and treat others how you want to be treated. One day you may find yourself in different shoes. You never know who will be there to pull you up. Maybe me.

Marriage and the definition of marriage is changing. Stop being so scared. The only constant in life is change. Don't panic, let go.

Yes it does. That is what this country protects. Same for us. My faith is that God knew exactly who I would be and made me as such. And loves me endlessly and unconditionally. My faith is that when I am done here, God will ask me,'how did you treat my people?'. I know what my answer will be. My faith is that God is only love, and that each of us has that In us. In you.
