<quoted text>So have zero examples of how gay marriage hurts you?
Animals do not get the rights of humans.

I have no problem if someone wants plural marriage. Do you have a problem with it? If so, then are all the players of the OT immoral?
You miss the point... I don't care!!!! Just leave those who don't want it in their lives alone?... What's so hard about that?

<quoted text>You use the word "prove" for evolution but then use the words "points to" for ID. Double standard?
Evolution is simply what the fossil record points to. Now if you could only show this intelligent designer, you may someday have a case.
But the bible claims all species were made at one time, but the evidence proves this as absolutely false beyond a shadow of a doubt.
Wrong again caption crunch!! The evidence clearly shows that life has always depended on other life to survive... This is where system complexity and dependency come into play... Unless you got some of that magic pixy dust that is... Lol.. Really?

I posted one part that shows this. Doctrine and Covenants 84.
I'm not sure that the Bible comes out and says that women can't hold the priesthood in those exact words, but certainly it speaks of the priesthood being passed down from father to son, and even from man to man. Also, every prophet, apostle, and levitical priest mentioned in the Bible is male.
Please tell me if you require further information as to assure you I am not running from the question.
You claimed it was in the bible, now you say it just infers.
It stands to reason if Jesus was a real deity, and only women could receive revelation worthy of passing on to other members, he would have mentioned it in the bible.

Yeah we should just shut up and go hold hands with the homosexuals as we prance though Disney Land and sing about the great new rainbow paradise!!!

Don't let these bozos tell you the science is on their side... Not by a long shot!!! They can prove nothing.. In fact ToE (theory of evolution) has more holes than a block of Swiss cheese... It's the desperate hope of agenda pushing lefties... Science in fact points to an intelligent design... It's the 900 pound gorilla in the room that the evolutionist doesn't want to face....
So only lefties believe in evolution? See Q about that.
What agenda is evolution pushing for to the left?

I told you it was in D&C. Chapter 84 shoes the oath of the Priesthood. He speaks of how the Priesthood is passed from Father to son, and He tells us it was for the sons of Moses. Here is an excerpt:
For whoso is faithful unto the obtaining these two priesthoods of which I have spoken, and the magnifying their calling, are sanctified by the Spirit unto the renewing of their bodies.
They become the sons of Moses and of Aaron and the seed of Abraham, and the church and kingdom, and the elect of God.
You should read the whole chapter.
The origins of marriage predate recorded history, so my only source is the Bible. Other religions tell a similar story of the origin.
The only other speculation of origin is for a man to feel paternal rights to his own children and access to sexual relations with the same female. Usually they paid a bride price to her father for this. That doesn't sound much like marriage to me, but maybe it was for that type of society.
Do you guys ever test the claims of this?

71 And if any man shall administer apoison unto them it shall not hurt them;
http://www.lds.org/scriptures/dc-testament/dc...
It is either real or it is of myth.

2 Yea, the word of the Lord concerning his church, established in the last days for the arestoration of his people, as he has spoken by the mouth of his bprophets, and for the cgathering of his dsaints to stand upon eMount Zion, which shall be the city of fNew Jerusalem.

3 Which city shall be abuilt, beginning at the btemple lot, which is appointed by the finger of the Lord, in the western boundaries of the State of Missouri, and cdedicated by the hand of Joseph Smith, Jun., and others with whom the Lord was well pleased.

4 Verily this is the word of the Lord, that the city aNew Jerusalem shall be built by the gathering of the saints, beginning at this place, even the place of the temple, which btemple shall be creared in this dgeneration.

5 For verily this generation shall not all apass away until an bhouse shall be built unto the Lord, and a ccloud shall rest upon it, which cloud shall be even the dglory of the Lord, which shall fill the house.

Missouri? Really?

I am concerned for others in this case, not myself. Whatever the world does outside my front door will not affect me in this matter. However, the overall degradation of society in general affects the children today, and in the future. I do what I can to protect the family unit. Not just this topic, but others as well. I think our church does well at promoting strong families. I think if more people practiced keeping the Sabbath Day holy by doing the Lord's work and spending time with family, families would be stronger. I think if more families put their distractions away and ate supper together, it would strengthen families. I think if more families practiced my church's Family Home Evening program once a week, it would strengthen familes. If fathers and mothers treated each other with respect as well as their children, that example of love and kindness would transfer to children.
Yeah, how selfish of me
And how does any of this have anything to do with gay marriage? Is gay marriage degrading society? If so, how? You do quite the dance as you avoid this question.

Change the word "invented" to "written" and I can agree.
If you could only show evidence it existed before the other religions.

Just say "I don't know what pedophelia is" and drop it. Justifying your position by saying there are laws against it is not a justification, as you should well know.

Also, you might want to look into bra sizes and what they mean. 44DD is not something that many would find attractive.

I didn't say a gay couple getting married threatens another family's structure. It threatens their family's structure.
I'm anxious to see more statistical data as time goes on, now that gays are allowed to marry in some states. For now, statistical data shows that gays prefer more variety in sexual partners and are less monogamous. So this would suggest that divorce rates would be higher, which certainly affects those with children. I truly hope that this won't be the case, because when children are involved, they suffer the most in divorces.
So marriage is threatening their family structure?
Do you really think marriage is why someone is not monogamous?

So you bash evolution and now say it is real but made by god? Got anymore contradictions of this magnitude?
Show me who handles snakes and is not affected by their poison?

What funding does the theory of evolution push for?

No you asked me what others thought.. Stereotype much?
They say a snake won't bite a righteous man but it would eat my ass up... Lol..
You group all christians in the same box and clearly do not understand anything about ID
Creationist and intelligent design are not totally the same but once again all you see is us vs. them... Look deeper...

Good grief man!! How about I just start walking you through your ABC's while I'm at it.... If you're going to debate a subject at least know something about it... And thus the problem with ToE: So many people just assume what they hear is true and never check it out themselves then turn and call others ignorant. This point is proven here as clearly you know nothing about even the basics of the argument... I urge you to dive in and do the research and see for yourself...
How is it so many can say that J.F.K and 911 were conspiracy theories yet just take the word of any Jake-legged grant seeking professor?
In other words, you can't answer any of my requests. As I suspected...

Umm... The big bang theory ( father of ToE) requires as you say "evidence that does not exist" A whole universe of matter from nothing!! Now tell me about fairy tales Einstein !!...
Says the guy who believes the universe was created by an invisible man who lives in the sky.

And the subject was Evolution vs Intelligent Design (Creationism). If you want to change subjects just say so.
