Calm down Mike. No need for insult on an opinion forum.
Marriage began within religion. Why would someone even care about marriage if they don't believe in any form of religion? Civil unions are just fine with me for gays. They should receive the same benefits as marriage. The word marriage matters to religious people because it carries the belief that God is a part of the union. Civil union carries all the same rights in the rest of the world, but it isn't recognized by God. Since you don't believe in God, why would you care if He recognized it or not?
No, I would not wish women be kept from high ranking jobs. I have no problem with female CEO's or politicians (except Hillary haha. Is she female?). I would vote for a woman for president if her views and intentions were acceptable. Please don't speak for me.
If you want to learn about the leader of my church, google him. Thomas S Monson
Really curious about what insulted you so much on this post?

<quoted text>So you wish to withhold marriage to homosexuals due to your superstition and yet cannot understand why we oppose your religion?
America is not a theocracy. We should not be making law due to your superstitions.
Would you not be just as upset as I if Muslims became a majority in America and they made superstitious laws (Sharia law)?
I am sure your church would love it if women could be kept from high ranking jobs also.
We get it, you and your church are bigots. And you wonder why so many look at your church as if it were a cult?
Show us your church is a leader in morality then we can talk about it following an actual god.
Withholding rights and privileges due to race, sex, or sexual persuasion is not moral. Your church has done all three and is still doing two of them.
You and your church learned nothing from its racism debacle.

Face palm
Churches teach abstinence until marriage. This is the number one, absolute, 100% method to prevent an abortion.
It is not their place to teach how to use contraceptives any more than it is their place to teach sexual positions.
It isn't their place to teach gun safety tips to avoid accidental deaths.
It isn't their job to teach drivers education to prevent car accidents.
It isn't their job to teach chemical reactions to avoid accidental science fair mishaps at home.
It isn't their job to teach how to paint to prevent accidental falling off ladders.
I hope you get the point.
You cannot expect me to take you seriously if you think Church holds the responsibility to teach these things. They teach the gospel of Jesus Christ (at least mine does, the one you are currently attacking)
I here your church complaining about abortions, not gun accidents and the others you listed. Thus, this list is irrelevant to my point.
How is fighting gay marriage a job of the church? This is relevant.

Abstinence teaching is far from one hundred percent effective. Again you deny the reality of the situation.

It is different, completely. There was no revelation given that blacks should not hold the priesthood. We already talked about this. This was Brigham's opinion and no one questioned it when they should have. Males as the only holders of the priesthood was a direct revelation from Jesus Christ. This is what makes the situations different. Once Jesus Christ speaks, the church obeys.
No I'm not offended.
Did I run from anything?
Brigham was the churches glorious infallible leader and no one questioned his bigoted ideas for over one hundred years.
Now you are afraid to question the bigoted ideas about sex and the priesthood.
You have demonstrated no difference between the two situations.
Yes, we talked about it, now tell me what variable is different?

Not changing the subject, just relating the absurdity.
The message from God is abstinence, remember?
Police don't say "You must always wear your seat belts. But if you choose to disobey, make sure you throw your arm in front of your toddler in the front seat to prevent them from going through the windshield"
In NC the police do say, you must where a seat-belt.

Again, why does your church get so active about denying people marriage? Where in the bible does god tell you this is the job of the church?

Like all birth control methods, condoms are more effective when you use them correctly.
Each year, 2 out of 100 women whose partners use condoms will become pregnant if they always use condoms correctly.
Each year, 18 out of 100 women whose partners use condoms will become pregnant if they don't always use condoms correctly.
You can make condoms more effective if you
use spermicide with them
I made it clear that my stats were based on *when used properly* Honestly a sledge hammer would have no luck in breaking your enormous mental block. Seek Help! I also typed when used in conjunction with spermicides and birth control! I understand why you feel the need to continuously beat a dead horse, but it's not gonna change the facts! You've been proven the fool, just let it go.
Even in the non perfect world , which your argument is based on..I Still see no 75% as you suggested when you altered my post. I can't make this any more clear-cut than it is
and when one little thing goes amiss-as often does in the REAL world (see:Murphy's law) the REAL stats then are:

15-24 percent FAILURE rate.
DUHMED down that means out of every 100 people,15-24 of them experienced condom FAILURE.

Which when tallied out, translates to anywhere to ONLY a 76%-85% effectiveness rate, at "best".

Which for SOME of us that CAN and DID comprehend the math, that pathetic rate of the ineffectiveness of condoms, was NEVER good enough...because IUD's and b/c tablets have been around for DECADES, and there's even more for BETTER choices for females to prevent mistakes of their own doings now a days!

Why do you feel the need to deny truth in facts? Do you think people should just hump and bump like mindless rabbits?

Sorry, some of us see things in a far different light-mostly because people are NOT puppies.

Promoting the opposite of loose morals is irresponsible? If you say so...
That's not what was referenced.

Prevention is the best medicine, if one cannot abstain then one should at least be careful, using the BEST possible options in doing so. When one cannot apply that common sense methodology, choices to ignore FACTS/reality, or for some reason is Ignorant of them, then that is when we see the "mistakes".
My personal opinion on that, is that should a female realize a mistake that would forever alter the course of her life (and especially so if it would harm others in anyway!!!!), she should be allowed the CHOICE in possible remedies for such, and LEARN from it as well, so as NOT to have to repeat the same mistake and remedy, repeatedly. Because after ONE mistake-there's absoflippinglutely-NO excuse whatsoever, none at all, to NOT apply the BEST possible means in preventing such.

Last damn time I'm going to address this subject PS go to the very link you posted, now after you get to the Birth Control Chart, do you see that little picture of the condom, Click on that condom, that will take you to some sub titles written in BOLD....scroll down and click on: HOW EFFECTIVE ARE CONDOMS...do me a favor and read that out loud and slowly! They get a little more specific here , now don't they. If you wanna preach exact stats then it shows to be 82% not used propery if only condoms are used ALONE! remember I initially said 90 95% when used properly along with spermicide and / or birth control! but that was wrong according to YOUR data from PPH it was 98 fu@king % accurate when used properly! do you finally get it now?

Why would anyone WASTE time looking at something that by far-is Obvioulsy- NOT, NOT, NOT the BEST preventative option.

What part of that FACT, do You not comprehend?

Now we know why ignorance runs amuck...like dogs in heat, so are the peabrained clueless.
