Regarding AIDs, I need to read up on it but I'm not sure what you're suggesting about the monkey thing. I hope you aren't suggesting that someone boinked a monkey and got AIDS because I seriously doubt that is what happened.<quoted text>
Whoa I can't let this one slip by. So you think that if gays were allowed to marry, they would be more monogamous? Really?
And no I can't blame God for the transfer of HIV from primates to humans. That was man's fault.
And as I said, as far as curing disease. It has happened through prayer. My own mother n law had cancer twice in two different places. After removal surgeries it popped up in different places. The third time of finding cancer, she did not want any treatment, just removal of the source. She was checked by two different doctors in different hospitals to determine how bad it was spreading.
2 weeks later she was due in for the removal surgery. I and another priesthood holder gave her a blessing. In the blessing I was prompted to tell her that according to her faith, her cancer would be gone and not return.
When the doctor began the surgery, he found nothing to remove. They stopped the surgery and tested her again and there was no trace of cancer. She has been cancer free for 6 years now.
I consider that a miracle as well.
Marriage would make gays more or less as monogamous as anyone else. Men are probably more prone to fooling around in general, so two men being married might have a higher risk of infidelity. But two women might have a smaller risk. So once again gender is irrelevant to marriage.
And religion is also irrelevant to marriage, but that is another topic.
What strikes me about your post is the cancer story. It is an incredibly DANGEROUS way to believe. What you describe as a miracle is called an outlier, statistically. And going around claiming that you have magic powers to heal people is a way of giving people a reason to avoid normal treatment.
It is foolish and dangerous and it is the sort of thing you should not be doing, ever.
Check the news regularly and you will find stories of nutcase religious families who shun doctors and kill their kids because of it. Not just one or two stories over time, but several every year. Since 2012 I can remember just by coincidence of hearing about them 3 different news stories about kids who died at home in pain because mom and dad believed in the power of prayer and miracles.
It's reckless bullshit and you should be ashamed for believing it and spreading it.
