All people can get married. A man can marry a woman and vice versa.
But changing the definition of marriage to include man on man and woman on woman marriage is disgusting, wrong, deviant, psychotic, retarded, and giving cry baby gays their way for votes for criminal scum politicians who support this trash.
Before you know it, we will start hearing bitching and moaning about gay reproductive rights, were two gays will want a woman or a man's egg or seed appropriated for their sick bastard offspring from a Dr. Frankenstienesque butcher.
Maybe they'll ban abortions for these "gay reproductive rights" and give gays the "unwanted" babies to sexually and mentally abuse instead. I guess gays will have to stop supporting planned parenthood for that to happen though.
Hey, Fannie Flagg is on tv now !:)

And there you have it. Two prospectives one religious one totally with out and both support the fact that no man has the right to judge another for race, color or sexual orientation. Your opinion I can respect because it is true, all of it. We are not as far apart as you may think everything you said is true of man kind when left to their own devices. You missed the one where the 12 tribes cut up virgins and basically mailed them to each other. All mans righteousness is as filthy rags. God would have never let his son die for us had there been any other way. Ask me if I would send my son to die for you. You,d be lucky if I'd be willing to come myself but not my son. It would take months to explain all that you described but I thin telling you that you are exactly right should do accept for the possible implication that God had a hand in any of it. The earth turned black for over 3 hours when Christ died because God does not look upon sin. Once out of the garden and free will was given to mankind God allowed mankind to have it his way and our sin nature took us down the path you described. The old testament sacrificed perfect animals to cover sin until God provided the perfect lamb in his son. All to cover the sin of man. I respect your head knowledge and you are right. If I could apply a little " Blood of Jesus we,d be soulmates"
Thank you very much for your post. I agree we aren't very far apart. I do believe in God or at least a higher power, it is just that my path is different from yours. Just because I do not adhere to Christianity does not mean I do not have values and morals. If you have studied other religions you will see they have one thing in common although it may be worded differently and that is "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". That is something that I take to heart and do my best to follow. If more people followed that one golden rule the world would be a much better place. I respect your path and I thank you for respecting mine. We are both right on one point, it is not up to us to judge anyone.

The old lady is right until she started being the judge.

I love my pet goat. It has been so good to me and it loves me too. I think we should get married. I know the goat wants to. Vet bills are so expensive, so if I could only get the goat on my medical insurance it would solve a lot.

And how exactly would the goat sign the marriage license ?

I believe that the sanctity of marriage can’t be ruined any more than straight people have ruined it. They lie, cheat, and abuse each other. If you are happy in your marriage then may your god bless you. If not, don’t you think everyone should have an equal right to misery and oppression?
Kudos to Lewisburg’s mayor for supporting gay rights! Whether or not he is Christian-who cares? We have separation of Church and State. The separation of church and state is in place so other people’s religions can’t be shoved down our throats, and to keep another’s religious beliefs from interfering with our rights.
Some of you will undoubtedly start with the god said thing. Let me stop you there, the bible was written and translated by man. If you want to go ahead and travel down that road I am game. For those of you who believe gay marriage will lead to polygamy you should know there are around 40 polygamists in the bible including Moses and Abraham see Numbers 12:1 as well as Genesis, Deuteronomy, and Exodus. Are you one who thinks gay marriage will lead to rape? Deuteronomy 22:28-29 says a man can rape a woman as long as she isn’t engaged, and he must marry her. Judges, Numbers, Zechariah, and Exodus also condone rape. If gay marriage passes do you think your children will turn into animal sacrificing Satanists? If so, read the extensive rules of animal sacrifice in Leviticus! I believe someone on Topix suggested that gay marriage would lead to incest. Did you realize Cain married his sister, Abraham married his half-sister, and Lot slept with his daughters?
Your good book condones slavery and that includes sex slaves! You will find that in Leviticus, Exodus, Ephesians, and Timothy. Murder is condoned-including children in Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Exodus, Leviticus and others. Do you bible thumpers want to go to that?
People are born gay and not turned gay. We have this wonderful thing called SCIENCE that proves this. If this wasn’t true a god that was ok with polygamy, rape, animal sacrifice, incest, slavery, and murder isn’t going to care who sleeps with whom! If we were created in his image like you say maybe he was bisexual! With the prejudices and bigotry they are faced with do you truly believe anyone would choose to be gay?????
I am a tolerable person to all races, gays and straights, as well as all religions unless you hop up on your soapbox and start putting others down. If there is one thing from your book you should adhere to and take to heart it is “Judge not lest ye be judged yourself.”
Check your facts. Science has not yet proven anything concerning one being born gay. No gay gene has been proven.

Yes, I will give it to you there is nothing definitive. Thank you for the correction.

"Most scientific organizations also believe that homosexuality is not a choice, that biology plays some role. The National Mental Health Association says,“Most researchers believe sexual orientation is complex, and that biology plays an important role. This means that many people are born with their sexual orientation, or that it’s established at an early age.”"

I do have gay friends that have said they knew they weren't like everyone else from an early age. This being before they had any grasp on what sexual orientation meant.

Whether or not scientist find or believe there is a gay gene, why should it matter anyway? You are who you are and no one has the right to tell you that you aren't equal to, or are less than anyone else.

Those of you that think that all these homosexuals are born are truly ignorant. If science has told us anything is that through genetics, it is possible. Just like people born with one arm, or one eye, born crippled, but you see, if this is true, then there is only as many homosexuals as people born with 9 toes, per say... Not the 8% that they would try to make you believe. The rest are of choice. Genetics isn't that screwed up anywhere. As for the God issue, those of you that claim to be Christian and support it are not Christian, I'm not sure what u are, but your not Christian. I'm not saying you have to hate homosexuals. Love them because they are a human being. Just don't support their way of life. You can quote the Bible if you wish, however, God designed us to multiply, homosexuality goes against this basic principal. I know right from wrong. Nothing more to say.

I find it very interesting that when those who choose to bash Christianity and quote and reference from the Bible, that all of those mentioned are Old Testament. Christians believe in the New Testament, and the Old T is Jewish. All of the 'evil' that God did was in the Old Testament.
yes or no?
Please stop referencing Christians with Old Testament values.

While the Bible does address homosexuality, it does not explicitly mention gay marriage/same-sex marriage. It is clear, however, that the Bible condemns homosexuality as an immoral and unnatural sin. Leviticus 18:22 identifies homosexual sex as an abomination, a detestable sin. Romans 1:26-27 declares homosexual desires and actions to be shameful, unnatural, lustful, and indecent. First Corinthians 6:9 states that homosexuals are unrighteous and will not inherit the kingdom of God. Since both homosexual desires and actions are condemned in the Bible, it is clear that homosexuals “marrying” is not God’s will, and would be, in fact, sinful.

And is your slate clean? Or are there marks of sin against you, as well?

If you're as human as the rest of us are, then your answer is "yes." And if your answer is "yes," then you have no business pointing fingers at anyone else for what they choose to do. You don't have to agree with the "sinners" or embrace their "sinful" lifestyle, but you should treat them with the same love and respect as you would any of God's children. There's no sin so great that God can't forgive it, and there's no soul so sullied that Jesus' blood can't wash it clean. Where is your faith?

So what you are saying in effect is that, NAMBLA members, " men who want to have sex with boys" are born that way and no one has the right to tell them that they aren't equal to, or are less than anyone else.
I figured you filthy gays would start wanting pedophiles seen as equal as well. Filthy scum!!!!

You are correct; they are God's children as all of us are, and my Lord teaches me to pray for them everyday for I hold no ill will towards anyone nor do I judge. I only quoted the bible it is you who has judged not I.

The more we do away with God,s teachings,the more pain we will bring on ourselves. When you see a certain decision that your children want to take and you know the consequences are not good, what do you do? We are going to pay a very high price for not listening to Gods wisdom! We need a strong revival in this country. God forgive us for our wayward ways--we appear to be slaves of the evil one.
