I like it when a minority of them call a majority of Christians.. not Christian ( chuckle ). Each one seems to have personal knowledge of how everything is supposed to be, and anyone that disagrees with them... is not "right with their particular god". Funny part is, they all seem to KNOW what their God is thinking, and it doesnít seem to be the same god.
I have pointed out the thousands of Christian churches that want to preform Same sex marriages, where is the demand for their religious freedom?
No.. it is all ignorant bias, they pick and choose the church that will tell them what they want to hear. Just like they pick a news station that will report what they want to hear, and then they close their eyes to actual knowledge and pick the "facts" they want to believe regardless of reality.
I donít actually hate these people, but I certainly feel sorry for them. But I will not let them dictate to other Americans.
it certainly puts a burr in their saddle when i point out that different denominations, different faiths, practice and follow their beliefs differently - and in our way of life here in america, we're allowed to make that choice of what and how to believe, or not to have any belief in any religious choice at all.

it's a BIG blind spot in many "followers" sight, for sure. they hate to think about anyone else wearing that "christian" cloak that might think feel or believe just a bit differently than they do. that club membership isn't decided by them, ever. and that, they just don't understand.

Yes, they all seem to think they speak for all of them, but none of them do, I have not even found one of them that can speak for a majority of them.

A large Majority of Christians in the world are Catholic for example, but a majority of Catholics in the US approve of the use of birth control for example, against the teachings of their church.

None of them speak for all Christians, and most of them I have talked to pick and choose passages to follow, and specifically disregard others.

How many followers of Christianity in this forum for example give a half seconds thought to "let he who is without sin, cast the first stone"

You and I both know the answer to that.

I'm looking for the Judge overturns ban on SSM thread, how did I end up here in the We Hate Christians forum?

Christians are not off topic but if I mention EQUALITY for poly MARRIAGE all hell breaks loose. I'm "OFF TOPIC!!!"

Funny how that works.

Many relationships are 'equal' in love. That does not make them marriage.
I agree that gays have every right and opportunity to purse legitimate rights and an identity for their relationship. That is their responsibility. It is not legitimate to impose an imposter relationship on marriage.
As to children, two distinctions.
1. Children in the natural home of their biological parents are at a significant advantage over ANY default setting. That setting, or as close as possible should always be the primary pursuit of society.
2. A ss couple ALWAYS deprives a child of one parental role. To do so deliberately should be criminal. It is narcissistically diabolical.
<quoted text>
I'm not sure how what you said is a response to what I said.
However, several points to your comments.
-You are referring to the 'Cinderella Effect' regarding step parents. The same principle applies to any none blood related person, and always in a ss couple household. King Solomon noted that principle when dealing with the two prostitutes and a child.
-You are trying to avoid the fact that ANY default parenting situation is a vastly inferior option to biological parents.
-You make a humorous attempt to avoid the fact that deliberately birthing a child apart from one parent is horribly wrong. In my mind, not the place for humor, nor a valid response.
Smile.
Was allowing your birth horribly wrong?
Seeing that you are a monster and all.

So then the right to specific health care for what's in one's underwear should be denied based on that reasoning?
LOL.
You're not into the whole "logic" thing are you?
Maybe you should start learning about it.
Start with looking up the term "non sequitur".

I take it you are unable or unwilling to answer the questions.
If its the consensus of society that marriage is simply a union of two consenting adults, there's no need to prohibit any two person, consenting adult, union, including blood relatives. Why should it matter who marries who, or who can't marry who?
Now, look up the term "red herring".

There might be good reasons for preventing certain parings.
But there aren't any for preventing same sex parings.

Is it not the joining of certain "body parts" and the natural result, that provides the biological foundation to marriage?
Marriage is a legal contract...

Red herring.(You should have looked up the term by now.)
Oh, and do you have a rational argument against gay marriage?

Approximately 6-7% of the world's Catholics are in the U.S. The rest of the world's Catholic population may have different views than their American co religionists.

By all means enlighten me on what pairings u speak of.
But there aren't any for preventing same sex parings.
Does that include same sex siblings or other blood relatives?
