Jesus said something in Genesis?!! LOL!!!! I imagine quite a few Jews will disagree!!!
BTW dummy, there are many Christian denominations that embrace gay people fully. Not all Christian denominations are fueled by discrimination and hatred.
Oh, and another FYI, there's no such thing as a "homosexual act". There are no acts that only gays can do, or do do. "Homosexual act" is nothing more than a fundie propaganda point.
Thanks for demonstrating yet again how stupid you are.
The people going to Churches that are NOT addressing homosexuality as a sin as any sin that should be addressed will have to suffer the consequenses when Christ returns. In First Corinthians Chapter 5, Apostle Paul says to remove them from the Church and turn them (sinners) over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so their Spirit can be saved when Christ comes back. Otherwords, they have to repent and sin no more in order to get to Heaven. The Bible says that the Blind leads the Blind and they will go down the pit together. So, all I can say is Good Luck!!

And there are no magic trees, talking snakes, rib women or men who where there own fathers who can back from the dead either so you can get those ideas out of your head too.

I am likely to believe one as the other, which isÖ not at all

I have been reading your posts and they do not make any sense at all, for it is either your way or no way. To the Christian who follows Christ daily, we follow Christ in everything that we do including helping people that are committing sins and especially those precious children that may be hanging on a fence and not know which way to go. I would take my children out of school today if they were still in school and I would continue to teach them God's perfect plan for their lives. If they were born both female and male, then I could see letting them make that decision, but not if you just want to change what we consider normal with all that a man has or woman has to conceive a child. If you say that you are a Christian, I would advise you to Study to show yourself approved unto God, for a workman needeth not to be ashamed rightly dividing the Word of Truth taken from Second Timothy 2:15. The homosexuals of today that say they are Christians are just deceiving themselves thinking that they are just going to get away with what they are doing. The rest of us are taking our Faith very seriously as a matter of life or death. Read James chapter 5 verses 19 & 20 telling the brethern that if someone does err from the Truth, let him know that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins. When Apostle Paul preached to the Church, he did not in any way butter anything up to make you feel that you were just OK in whatever sin you were doing, for he preached the Word as God through Christ told him to preach and that was to convict you of yours sins, no matter what they were and live a Spiritual Life from thereafter. In some of your posts, you are making it sound like you have all the answers to help children, well it seems that you are leaving God out of the picture totally because only God has the power to heal completely and your way will not save that person either.
you claim that i only see things "my way or no way" - you're just as guilty of the same thing.

i've pointed out to you 3 major factors in the changing game - the biggest culprit of all was exodus. i can't imagine how many lives they've damaged. even they finally conceeded defeat and realized they weren't doing the good they thought they were.

now the question is : how many people are you going to harm by choosing to continue the farce and lie of attempting to change people to something they really are not?

Dang Frankie, the last two times that you fools voted on the subject of same sex marriage, they where both shot down for violating the Constitution. Have your law makers take a class or two.

<quoted text>Glad to disappoint you, but I assure you that I have read the Bible and you have not. If you had then you would know it was not a fantasy.
I mentioned the major religions and gave you the option of Wicca, but some satanist will allow for homosexuality, and then there are some pagan ritual religions.
You should care, unless you were lying about reading the Bible.
Now, please tell us, what was your reason for opposing same sex marriages before. Come on, give us the mountain of research that led you to that concrete decision. You see, knowing the basis of that decision is all we need know to understand your current decision.
I have not lied, I have read it, twice, cover to cover and in context ( the only way any book should be read ). I certainly did not memorize any of it ( what a total waste of time that would be ) but know generally what is in it.

This is the USA where we have freedom of religion, any religion, regardless of how many followers it has, and as long as you abide by US law, you are free to believe whichever religion you want to, and no religion is allowed power over anyone else.

If you are new to this country there are some immigrant courses you can take to learn more about it.

Perhaps you people should find a court that says that the 3y normal marriage states are in violation of the US Constitution. I suggest you look up the voting, only one state for vote same sex marriage, the only two did not approve the ban.
That said there are "ZERO" states with constitutional definitions of marriage defining it to include same sex marrying. "ZERO"
That is 30 to 0. A shut up. Overwhelming. Majorally impressive.
Wrong again, in fourteen states, two people of the same sex can be married, yes 14, BTW Washington DC also allows same sex marriage. Soon other states will follow. One day, and not to far off, all 50 states. One more thing more than 50% of this Nation, is in favor of same sex marriage. Oh and another bit of law, a state Constitution amendment, is not needed to allow same sex mariage. Just look at the 14 states and Washington DC. and you will find that to be true. What is true is this, there is nothing, nada, zip, zilch, zero that YOU and all the Bible Beating Fundies can do about it.

Find the amendment in the US Constitution, that allows for opposite sex marriage.

Yet another internet tough guy.
Been to Wooster, Ohio by the way. A shithole during the 9 months of winter that hits there where the skies are constantly gray, cold and forbidding and the first shovel of snow you pushed off your driveway in late October is still there during spring thaw. Humidity so thick that immigrants from Singapore want to go home and full of nothing but pasty, obese white people driving 23 year old Mopars while working at the factory dreaming of the moment they can leave their dead end jobs to get back to the doublewide covered in burned out Christmas lights from 6 seasons ago.
LOL!!!
But go on. Please tell me how you intend to 'backhand' me Brutus.
Sounds like Sacramento but with no snow, just bad air and oppressive heat and morons. Too funny! Meth labs and cow sh!t. Ah!

Another win today

The federal government as far as taxes are concerned are going to recognize same sex couples that were legally married, even if they are living in a state that does not recognize them as married.

That means we now have federal recognition in all 50 states
