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?
Smile.
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.

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.
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.

Heterosexuals did. And you want to copy them.

Choice? Lol. Straight people are the ones making a big deal out of it. How about keeping straight marriages out of the workplace, off the street, out of the media, and in the privacy of your home. No one cares if you have a different sex partner or what perversions you participate in, like having unwanted babies and getting on welfare that we have to pay for.
Weak....very weak. I think the 98% of normal thinking folks....have about 200,000 years on you. Really.....truly....abide by all the rules of society that the rest of us do and we can all get along. Last time...what you do with your sex tool behind your doors, is your business. You are a minority in your sex choice and will always be. The 98% don't need your parades nor your flamboyant mannerisms.
I just ask...when you are done with all the recklessness of your 'chosen' lifestyle, and all your demands that your kind make on society........in the end......what exactly is your contribution to the greater societal good...to mankind....to the world.......since you try and demand we "accept" the 'choice' you make.......behind closed doors?

I was under the impression that there were 55 or 66 'books' that made the bible, therefore reading it as a whole is neither here nor there.
Plus I was trying to make a point about only posting snippets that suit.
But I have one question for you...it sounds like you are not opposed to incestuous behavior. A man had sex with two of his daughtets to keep the blood line (pure?). Incest is incest no matter how it's worded. Do you believe it to be acceptable? I certainly don't.
Some religions do include text that others do not.
But i'm not a scholar and i don't know exactly what text those would be.
But i do know of that text you mentioned and the Jewish stance on that text.

I vehemently oppose incest behavior. In these days its illegal as it should be.
But again we're not talking about incest relations as they are today.
The bible is talking about the Jewish faith and how back in those days ( not these days ) preserving the blood lines was important.
Also keep in mind this was NOT a mutual incest relationship. Lot's daughters KNEW that their father would not approve. Therefore they drugged him with wine. You seem to skip over that. But that is what happens when you cherry pick.
As i said before you really need to study the Jewish faith to fully grasp the meaning of all this and not just cherry pick what lines of the bible you dislike or like.

Again as for me i'm very very OPPOSED to incest.
Please get that right !!!
Before you influence some idiot into jumping on me thinking i'm for it when i'm NOT.

KiMare would probably know more about this then i would.
But i think ( maybe i assume to much here ) he would agree with me that the bible should read as a whole regardless of which religion you're in and regardless of which bible they use.

Churches differ for a number of reasons.
for example on who can take Communion
some you have to be a member of that religion
some you have to be a member of that particular church as well as a member of that religion
some go with you just saying you believe in Christ and that he died for all our sins.
I have a personal experience story on the topic but its really unimportant

i've also asked them a number of times what did the gays ever build ?
where are the gay built hospitals, gay built homeless shelters,
gay built women abuse centers, gay built drug addiction centers, gay built blood banks, gay built soup kitchens.
Nothing but silence from the same gays that will scream about a baker not baking a cake.

Think about it.
We have about 200,00 years on you. Gay has been around since people.
Abide by the rules of arrogant scared white men? Sorry, it didn't work with women, it didn't work with black people, it isn't working with us. Will you never learn, you can't just step all over and oppress everybody.

What you do behind doors is your business, keep it there. Keep your hand holding, making out, sitting on laps, and every other gross perversion in the privacy of your home. We don't need to see that. You make demands on our taxes, because we have to pay for all your lazy, greedy welfare recipients. We have to explain to our kids why so many of you have kids that you don't want, why you get married and divorced on a whim and how marriage should mean more than that. It's sick and unnatural. Terrible burdens on society, overpopulating an already strained planet like Neanderthals that don't have the capacity to know better.

It works both ways. It's very hurtful and anger provoking isn't it?

Except in this case everything in that paragraph is true.

Gay people entertain you, in movies, radio, tv, music, they do countless philanthropic works, they have and do build whole communities, Alexander the Great was gay for goodness sake, gay people built Rome!

So we're ok to do all that, but not use the same water fountain as you? We'll that rings familiar.

No, no hang on....I told you why I 'cherry picked'...it was to make a point about others who do and leave out the passages before and after. Yes I realise they drugged him with wine, but if he was able to impregnate them, then surely he had some idea of what was happening...unless God gave him an 'immaculate erection'?
well you must be referring to someone other then me.
i usually prefer my style which is pick a current topic and run with it
i very rarely drink - one drink with a birthday dinner that kind of drinking
so i'm not the one to debate what is possible not impossible when drunk.
while i have worked in the medical field once ( making test kits for a large medical company )
i'm certainly no doctor either.
But i've seen my share of drunks. And most them probably could impregnate a women while drunk. They certainly would try it if they could catch a woman. That seems to be the hard part for drunks.
So i totally believe a drunken Lot could and did impregnate his daughters.
And in none of the bibles i read ( i have read more then one ) did it mentioned getting help from God.
And anytime God helped someone it is mentioned in the bible.
whatever your reasons for cherry picking this is a good example why cherry picking is wrong.
Your whole way of looking at those passages are wrong.
Its wasn't about sex it was about the blood line. Just MHO

You're joking with list right ?
seriously ?

there are people in serious need of help. People needing hospital care, place to get a meal, a safe place to get away from domestic violence, or just a place to sleep indoors, or to get off of drugs.
ANYONE ON THAT LIST GOING TO HELP THEM ????
how great is that list now ??? What is Elton John going to do for them sing a song ?
People in serious need of help don';t turn to gays want to know why ?
Because it would be a cold day in hell before gays would help them .
They turn instead to people of faith. In churches
there they know those people will help them in what they really need.
Keep your list handy i'm sure someday you'll need it.
