I consider myself a Christian. If you
don't like it,too bad...
why would i not like a christian ?
why would you question whether anyone would like you as being a christian ?
Christians don't walk around looking for acceptance.
We go to places brave men fear to tread with nothing more then just a bible.
You have a lot to learn about being a christian.
Not questioning whether or not you are one.
i'm just saying there is no real thought behind your words. You blunt out hate towards me without even asking me why i said any of the things i said. Then claim i'm the one full of hate.
All the while you ignore anyone else making serious bad comments.
You need to listen more , ask more questions, and accept not all christian agree on every issue.
Just because we disagree at times is no reason for you to say another christian is hateful.

just curious but didn't you notice how he ended it ?
In my very humble opinion it kinda took the religious feel right out the comments.

also curious who's tables are you referring to that should be turned over ?
The ones Jesus turned over were those belonging to the money changers.
I dont see this as an issue about anyone profiteering financially..
I'm sure some have made money but i doubt that is the real issue about gay marriage.

He's more than welcome to his opinions, but you both need to realize that the battle and the war for marriage equality are over. Seriously. Both of you will take those opinions to the grave, and we'll continue to have marriage equality.

so why are you still here ?
To remind you that your opinions about SSM, or as we call it "marriage equality" are irrelevant.
In spite of your best efforts, as well as KiMerde's, we're still legally married. Our union is recognized by all the people in our lives that are important, including God.

As for the rest of your blather, I have talked a bit about our lives. You completely ignored what I detailed, and continued to post fictional lies about me. That's right, you did. The self-professed spreader of Christian love continued to post lies and fictional accounts of my life. Further, this thread is hardly the place to detail our daily lives. How many other people are boring you with the minutia of their married lives in this thread.

Please stop pretending that I'm attacking "Christians" here, because that's a scapegoat. I AM a Christian, with 30 years service on a ministry team and a radically different theological perspective than yours. You've repeatedly crapped on my faith, claiming that being a Christian is incompatible with being gay.

Yes, I have gone after you, but that's because you're wind-bag for right-wing talking points. In response, you pull out the poor, poor, persecuted Christian card.

you seriously need a history lesson on what a real dictator is and does.
throwing out such super extreme doesn't convince anyone of your points

yes it is changing just wait until the Muslim gain a foothold here like they have in other countries. They really hate gays. And if you doubt they can gain here just ask the New Yorkers living near the Mosque they built at ground zero.

as I am.I'm no Christian warrior, I let

that would be the Muslims that have religious warriors

Troll on,
i don't recall putting in a effort to stop gay marriage other than my LEGAL right to vote.
Certainly you of all people have no problem with anyone exercising the right to vote.

to be honest i don't recall you saying anything nice.
all your post have an - in your face - mentality.
you go after every christian ( except the fake ones ) in here with a vengeance
lets face it that is pure hate. It is what motivates you.

that is why i think you'll be divorce someday.
i can't see your kind of hate not spilling into your everyday life.
you have too much hate within your soul. In comes across in your posts. More then it does even from my imposters. Those guys are just clowns trying to amuse themselves.
Posters like CaliGirl14 are just immatures who don't see the whole picture in life.
But you your different then any of them. Your a person with only hate inside.
i dont hate you at all. I really feel sorry for you. Not just spiritually but i feel sorry for you as one person to another. You will self destruct someday. In a very sad way.

No, I go after bigots, idiots and trolls. I have not attacked Christians, though I have reminded you that your version of Christianity doesn't get to be the benchmark for mine (chew on that for a while).

Are you an aging, bitter old troll? That's how every one of your posts comes across.

I don't see it as an issue of profiteering financially either. I simply believe that Christ also had limits on how many times one turned the cheek the other way. He demonstrated that when he overturned the tables. He displayed his anger.

Beyond that, I don't support the "religious feel" you seem to relate well to, especially if it drives good and moral people away from Christianity. What better place for them? If you reject people for their differences, you will drive them away from their natural instincts of faith and conversations with God. I'm not a fan of organized religion, since even among the protestant denominations, they discriminate against one another. A Baptist is not Methodist who is not an Episcopalian nor a Catholic. They all have the same Bible for reference, and yet they've reached different conclusions about "the path" and the rules. JMO

What IS the real "issue" about gay marriage? Could it be some ancient translator's bogus translation of the Hebrew word with an agenda in mind? Maybe, huh?

Opinion?

Gay couples have a piece of paper claiming that your mutually sterile, pointlessly duplicate gendered relationship equates to marriage. That distinction bothers you immensely, in spite of your claim otherwise.
You know as well as I do that nothing can change the inferior status of your relationship. It is visibly a counterfeit, scientifically defective mating behavior, factually fallacious and socially a forced sympathy to denial.
Smile.

You know, it isn't any less lame the 5000th time you cut and paste it.

Gay people have a marriage that is equal to yours in every way. This lack of distinction and total equivalence of gay marriage to yours bothers you immensely or you wouldn't have devoted such a large portion of your life to crying about it here.

No matter how many times you shove your fingers in your ears like a three year old and repeatedly shout, "No, you can;t make me accept reality" it doesn't change a thing. Within five years gay marriage will be allowed in all 50 states and there's not a damn thing you can do about it. Except maybe try to be insulting on Topix. That seems to make you feel better about yourself.

funny you should mention those of us who are Christians driving away the gays in here.
You need to read what the gays write.
They don't want our religion.
We would love for them to realize according to scripture that marriage is between a man and a woman. Once they realize what religion teaches us and them about marriage and life we would welcome them.
The problem is not us. The problem is them wanting something that is wrong in Gods teaching.

As for your comment about different churches that is a huge misconception non christian make and few christian too. Until they realize the bible really is the same message.
Does it really matter if the wise men rode camels or donkeys ?Or if they ate corn or some other fruit/veggie native to the area. or who reached the tomb first.
Most of the differences pointed out by people are minor in nature. Those differences do NOT change God's love for us. Those changes are MAN's interpretation to make it easier for MAN to understand what man cannot fully understand.

there are no hidden agenda's in the bible. The bible very clear what God wants us to do.
Will we fail ?? SURE we will.
We always come up short but God loves us and forgive us if was sincerely ask him to..
If we truly believe in God and God's forgiveness we will go to heaven.
What is hidden about that ? Nothing .
