He would respond in the same way; if you know anything about him he was a great christian man.
You have no idea how he would respond in todays world, he lived in a different era. He may or may not have had the same views, people are allowed to change, I'm not saying he woyld have. So is what you're saying is to do as all great historical figures (i.e. Abe Lincoln, George Washington, both religious men) have done? Or just certain ones? honest questions

Wrong on so many levels. I do like how Scott’s little cut and paste states “Christians and all people of good will” as if all Christians are of good will! Hilarious. What the fundies hate is that the public school system will be teaching about homosexuality in an appropriate and informative way based upon facts, and not their interpretation of their buybull. The public school system, and all state and federal programs will recognize homosexuals as EQUAL and NATURAL, which they are. As for acceptance, fundamentalists will continue to be able to withhold their acceptance. Just like all those fine Christians in that Christian organization known as the Ku Klux Klan do. There is no imposition being made on all of society. Fundies are more than able to teach hatred of gays in their homes, just like they are able to teach the ridiculous Genesis creation story in their homes.
<quoted text>
The sexual revolution has already come and gone. And there is absolutely no correlation between gays being married and incest, pedophilia, and bestiality. This argument is hogwash, the Courts have already said so. This is nothing more than the fundie last ditch attempt at the “slippery slope”. It’s nonsense.
<quoted text>
Your god is completely irrelevant in matters of social justice and equal rights. The Constitution trumps your god. It always will. It’s a shame you fundies are so un-American.

Oh, I see..... the wife isn't but the daughter is.

You have a screw loose.

Medgar Evers was gay. Ever hear of him?

if government doesn't matter then the laws in states that don't allow same sex cival unions/marriage don't matter. If government doesn't matter this whole topic is void and null,then anyone can do whatever they want. Of course government matters, the words in your bible are only the "law" for those with the same beliefs. As another religious poster stated before, the bible isn't based on truth but based on faith. So have that faith in your world, no where does it say to push that faith on to others.

The topic is " Illinois house approves same sex civil union", key word being "house" It says nothing about the bible approving it or not. I'm sure there's probably other threads addressing the religious side.

Odd then how every biography of her states she was a civil rights LEADER.

Alveda is a religious wing nut. She had three abortions and then decided she wished she hadn't, so that's her focus. She's an activist, but not a leader in any way.

I'll take the word of a real leader over Alveda. In the end, it doesn't matter, our equality is not resting on the opinions of a dead man.

Do you think capitalizing nonsense makes it somehow more relevant? You would be mistaken.

Government doesn't matter?!! LOL!!! The government is the very entity ensuring that you get to freely continue following your little cult. You might want to respect it a little more.

It really is too bad that the government needs to be there to stop you idiots from stoning disobedient children to death...because after all that is "Gods Way".

I would think some people would take the term "fundie" as an insult.
I would also say you intended it as an insult.

Calling people names is an insult, but telling people how they can live their lives is definitely an insult too. I used to run around thinking I could tell people how to live, trust me, it wasn't coming from the kindness of my heart. Fortunately, I grew up. I don't think anyone is intending to tell us straight people how to live, nothing gives us the right to tell them. If it wasn't for bigots saying this is the only way too live, I doubt this would even be a discussion. Bigot isn't an insult, I've been a bigot, all it means is you won't except amyone elses view, your way is the only way. At times, I would say most people have displayed some form of bigotry, right or wrong.
