mmmm-my mind continues to go back to Sodom and Gomorrah. Maybe we need to quit using the term "sodomy" as well.

You lose the history lesson on both counts;
1. The Bible was the text book for scores of early American school history.
2. Gay 'marriages' have never ever survived for any length of time in history.
Simply facts. You'll live to see it (smile).
<quoted text>
No, I was right on the account you distorted and the one you ignored.
They had many books, and the Bible was used in all schools along with daily prayer to 'Nature's Creator'.
Why do you always have to deny and twist reality? It's like telling the lie that gay unions are the same as marriage. You have to keep telling bigger and bigger lies to maintain the first lie.
The foremost advocate against the use of the Bible – as many of you can easily imagine – was none other than the Declaration’s author, Thomas Jefferson. As we all know, Jefferson was a passionate proponent for religious freedom and the separation of church and state. In addition, Jefferson was also a devout supporter of education reform. Jefferson believed that a secularized education, free from the shackles of religious piety would create a superior learning environment. It was largely due to this conviction that Jefferson established Mr. Jefferson’s University, or the University of Virginia as it is known today.

For Jefferson, the instruction of biblical or Christian doctrine took a back seat to the more important lessons of ancient history and philosophy. As Jefferson stated:

“Instead therefore of putting the Bible and Testament into the hands of the children, at an age when their judgments are not sufficiently matured for religious enquiries, their memories may here be stored with the most useful facts from Grecian, Roman, European and American history.

Are you now trying to call ALL relationships marriage???
Only when you pony up the cash and get a marriage licence, and say I do. The requirements are the same regardless of the sex.

LIE. Complete load of horse shyt.

In Mexico, gays can MARRY in Mexico City only. With all the same rights as straight people.
In the state of Coahuila gays can receive a Civil Union, which does NOT recognize all the same rights as marriage.
The rest of the states in Mexico recognize both, but do not allow gays to enter into either institution.

But please, don't let truth get in the way of you pretending that gays in Mexico have equality with straight people.

If the couple has a legal marriage license.....then Yes, that's what I'm saying!!!

Even to those who don't have a legal marriage license, but choose to refer to their relationship as a marriage is okay as well.

In my particular case, my wife and I are legally married and we fight to have federal recognition of that marriage just like any other legally married couple gets!!!

And many institutions have requirements..........
Yup. And the intitutions can adjust and change their requirements, and often do. For example, schools in the south in the United States are institutions. Originally one of their requirements was that all students be white. Now that is no longer one of their requirements. See how that works sunshine? Here's another example. West Point is an institution here in the United States. Originally one of its requirements was that all its students be male. Now that is no longer one of their requirements. Would you like some more examples hon?

Not yet. Are you under the impression that this little fact negates the FACT that I'm married? LOL.

But please, don't let facts get in the way of you being a snippy little aggitative bitch. Witnessing your need to constantly post back handed childish insults to gay people is a hoot. Must suck to be as insecure and insignificant as you are.

Nope the word we used was human......
White still means white......
And marriage still means marriage. Marriage is DEFINED as an institution, a ceremony and a union. None of those definitions change when gays enter into marriage.

But please, do keep spreading the word about the gay agenda to change the meanings of words!!!!! What a jackass!!! And so publically willing do demonstrate it too!! You mother must be so proud!!!

First, try responding to me and not repeating gay talking points about the Bible that have nothing to do with what I said (If you can.).
I did respond to you piss-ant. And I don't need talking points. Your questions were so ridiculously stupid that they required no talking points to address them. Funny, I notice you aren't adressing the responses themselves, but instead are now trying to make this about me. Typical tactic of uneducated fundies when they can't support their rhetoric.

From the dust of the earth makes NO sense and has never made sense, and never will. It's just a myth that was passed on from generation to generation. Your statement is as ridiculously stupid as saying, "you know that for the previous 4000 years, a flat earth mad the most sense".

No, what I'm avoiding is your naivete.
Your bible clearly states that man was created as "man". That is not genderless. You can throw out as many bells and whistles as you want, and jumpt over as many mental hurdles as you want to try and pretend that your bible is credible. But the scenerio you are trying to sell, NO ONE is buying.

Oh, I see! Then please, let me rephrase the question. In the "two veins" of man's ancestry that you claim scientists have discovered, could you please cite a source indicating that scientists have discovered one of the two veins to include alien DNA. We'll wait right here for it!!
