Joy contagious at Larimer County clerk's office as civil unions become legal

Full story: Estes Park Trail-Gazette

Two dozen happy couples, many of them in the company of friends and family members, sought help from the county clerk staff in coming together officially under Colorado's civil union statute that took effect May 1. "When people are that happy, having that much fun, it's hard not to share in that," deputy clerk Angela Myers said near the end of a ... (more)

to be nasty...and that was really bad which is a bad reflection on the gay community/gay advocates. Everyone has their own opinion on civil unions and gay marriage. Just because someone does not agree with you does not mean they are right or wrong...just who they are which is what you are asking all of us to honor. Live your life as you see fit and when it comes time for you to stand at the Pearly Gates only you and your God will know if your choices are right or wrong. As humans we should not judge opr predict but we can have opinions whether they be Bible based or motherly gut feelings...been there:)

that my views don't cause a whole large portion of the population to entertain bigoted views of a group of people. Which religion is great at. So yes I really think that there is a need to make these type of comments socially unacceptable. Would you be ok with someone criticizing someone of color just because they have different views? No. It became socially unacceptable (unless you live in the south) to make comments such as those. Well, you cant hide behind your bible any longer and spew hate. It is unacceptable and should no longer be tolerated.

thing. If we are going to start quoting the bible for decisions on people's basics rights as citizens of this country then lets go all in. So here are a number of "rules" from the bible that I bet not too many Christians follow and yet feel the need to spew hate towards GLBT people (enjoy hypocrites):

“Whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery”(Matthew 5:32, 19:9 & Luke 16:18)

"And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by men. Truly, I say to you they have received their reward. But when you pray, go into your room (or closet.) and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret..." (Matthew 6:5-6 RSV). Biblicists violate this on a regular basis and have no intention of correcting their behavior. They demand that evolution be taken out of the curriculum. They demand parochial school receive voucher programs so that they may collect public funding. Christians continuously pray in public, IE: churches, street corners, schools, courts, etc. yet all the while they never stop to think this is in direct violation to the god they pray to.

"Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?" (l Corinthians 11:14). How many freaked out long-haired, bible thumping Jesus freaks do you know?

“Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak”-- 1 Corinthians 14:34

"If any of you has a dispute with another, dare he take it before the ungodly for judgment instead of before the saints?”-- 1 Corinthians 6:1 NIV
How interesting! Considering that state is separate from church all courts are supposedly “ungodly”. Does this stop Christians from tying up the supreme court with law suits concerning school prayer, abortion, or numerous other absurdities? Hell no it doesn’t, and my taxes are paying the f*Kking bill for their hypocrisy!

“Let not yours be the outward adorning of braiding of hair, decoration of gold, and wearing of fine clothing”-- 1 Peter 3 :3

“Judge not, and ye shall not be judged, condemn not and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven”(Luke 6:37)

“Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or that ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on... Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, not gather into barns; yet your heavenly father feedth them. Are ye not much better than they?”--Matthew 6:25-34 & Luke 12:22-31

“You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh on account of the dead or tattoo any marks upon you. I am the Lord”--Leviticus 19:28
Got piercings??

Eating pork is forbidden (Deuteronomy 14:8)

A man must marry and have relations with his dead brother’s wife (Deuteronomy 25:5-6)

A raped, unengaged virgin must marry her rapist and they can never divorce (Deuteronomy 22:28-29)
This one actually explains quite a bit about crazy right wingers take on rape.

A garment composed of wool and linen can’t be worn (Deuteronomy 22:11)

And I could go on but I think you get the point...
So the bible is flawed

but is biology? As of 203, how many human males can produce babies mating with other human males?
Umm

Not everyone gets married to have kids. Just another bible banger ideology that also, lots of Christians don't follow.
I am sure that is true

But somehow we have to produce progeny, or our species will die out.

Are you insisting that this is the job of the heterosexuals, to produce offspring for you?

What if the heterosexuals all decide this is the LGBT's responsibility.

Are the top LGBT scientists at work on gestation from fertilization to viable fetus?

........
Are you really saying that every married couple in the world must produce children? And that if a tiny percentage of the married population can't. or don't, then the species will die out?

Do you have ANY stats or any proof at all to back up this weird claim?

The exact same percentage as married folks who choose not to have kids, cannot have kids, or are getting married over 65 years old and still procreating.

Any other questions?

And your obsession with gay MALES is rather cute.
Hardly an obsession

It's just that it may be possible in the future for women of the species to have offspring without any male input.

But it will be very difficult for men to reproduce except for cloning without a female around.

So instead of trotting out all that you've been told at your LGBT forums, answer the question instead of attacking the questioner.

If all us heterosexuals decide to stop having babies, how do the strict homosexuals propose to continue peopling the earth with homosexual behavior?
Spew hate

I don't get it? Haven't seen a Bible verse until you started rattling them off to assuage your guilt. Everyone is entitled to their opinions and verbage and that is something that is tolerated and protected by the Consitution...civil unions are neither. It's your way or the highway, no tolerance there. The Founders who based the Constitution on God and country never mentioned we had to "tolerate" freak shows and there are as many Bible verses disputing homosexuality as there are the ones you stated out of context and posted. Never the less God gives us free will to do as we please hoping we honor Him and His son who died for our sins...like homosexuality.
Then again

Here is the point:
MY sheep hear my voice, I(Jesus) know them and they follow me John 10:27.

Do you confesses to the Lord Jesus with your mouth and if so what did He reveal to you today? Are you hearing from the Lord? Do you follow the Lord? Do you confess your own sin? Do you acknowledge yourself a sinner and therefore in need of the Saviour. Have you received Christ as you Lord and Saviour, and therefore the Holy
Spirit? If not, then you have been deceived and are unable to discern the Lord's truth-you lack guidence. Satan knows the bible, too. Anyone can quote the bible, but only true followers of Jesus can decode His parables and biblical truth by hearing the Lord's voice in their mind and having the Holy Spirit guide them in truth. It is the nature of decption to not be able to see that we have been deceived.
So sinner

Instead of going down the line of comments and rating/judging them nuts or acceptable answer the questions you coward. Especially after your "Bible quotes" which anyone can do to deflect from the real issue. You couldn't answer the questions about your responsibility in all of this like do you know Christ...read the last thread and answer or does God scare you?
