It's not hate when Big D does it. After all, they are despicable Christians and believe in a sky fairy.

VV believes marriage equality is not for other marriages besides OSM and SSM. It's not hypocrisy when he does it.

I could not agree more. I lived in a condo for 3 years (rented from a family member) and while I see the benefits of ownership, it was more of a hassle than it was worth. Problems with loud neighbors? You can’t just call the apartment manager. Having to make “group decisions” on everything related to the building began to grate on me as well.

Well, it would appear that Minnesota and Rhode Island are to be counted as states that now allow same-gender marriage.

If you include Washington DC in the list of areas where same-gender couples can marry, the figure is 15 states. That represents 30 percent of the states in the US.

If you don't count D.C., that still means that 28 percent of the states in the US offer same-sex marriage.

Congratulations to Minnesota and Rhode Island!!

This is a question that I ask in all seriousness. I would send the question to you in private, but I don't think that you have your account set up to receive private messages.

Here's the question... How do you reconcile war in which people kill one another and Christ's very clear commandment to love your neighbor as you love yourself?

Those seem like opposite ends of the spectrum to me.

Did you actually kill people in Vietnam?

I'm just curious.

I think my account is set up for private messages, so you don't have to answer here.

And as God as my witness, I WILL NOT share your response, ever.

This is so disappointing. Our country is going down the toilet. I am called a homophobe for upholding my christian beliefs and for voting for what I believe in. I will not ever support gays or lesbians due to my own personal beliefs so don't hate me for fighting for what I believe in. You are fighting for what you believe in too yet, you hate anyone who does not support your choice. Are we supposed to approve anything and everything anyone wants? Should we just have an anything goes society. NO RULES, NO CONSEQUENCES??? Really????

You call mating behavior and historical cross cultural and religious customs 'common practice'? Yes. However, most common practices are not opinion. They are exactly such because they are true.
I keep asking if you read what you write, you really should. I think you'd laugh too.
LOL

Why must we continue to go through this?
At one time slavery was common practice. It was practiced far and wide for eons. It was only after the Age of Enlightenment that the abolition of slavery really caught on worldwide.
The once common practice of buying and selling human beings on the open market is very much like the once common practice of marriage being defined as only taking place between a man and a woman.
Our country has been bending toward justice since its inception. We have questioned common practice as it pertained to racial minorities, women, the handicapped, religious minorities, etc.
That traditional marriage has been altered to include couples of the same sex represents a continuation of the long tradition of seeking equality.
You cannot argue your case by saying, "It's the way we've always did it."
I'm always at least two steps ahead of you.
You claimed that common practice was only an opinion. I proved you wrong.

Now you attempt to note some poor exceptions that avoid admitting you made a stupid claim.

~Slavery is more of a common practice now than ever.

~ss sex for hire is far more a common practice than ss couple fidelity.

~Injustice is the human direction. Not only is the Middle East in uproar, our nation is more divided than ever and likely on the verge of anarchy.

I made no claim that 'this is the way we always did it.'

I did note that the recognition of homosexuality being a defect has been historical cross culturally. Science is on the verge of understanding why.

I did note that marriage has been a distinct relationship across time, cultures and religions.

Your claim that they are changeable is like claiming our practice of drinking water is changeable. Silly stupid.

Queen, we are not even on the same path.
