What is it that you want from us? One of your questions previously was that debates for the most part don't work. I have to tell you that you do not know what you are talking about.
Here is the post you were responding to typing about Christian vs atheist debate: "How is joining an anti-gay hate group supposed to show the Christian love and tolerance for gay people? Do you want to draw the gay community closer or further away from God?"

Were you confused as to what post you were responding to?

As far as I remember, no one said procreation is a requirement for marriage. That's your schtick. Your straw man.
when they stop bringing it up as a reason to not allow same sex marriage, I will stop reminding them. I donít give a crap what you want.

Oh I know, I donít have a problem with most Christians

But most Christians do not try and preach to my children and grandchildren without my or their parents consent, they donít belittle people different than themselves, I know quite a few that supported same sex marriage.

The problem is, most Christians, are not the "vocal" Christians that are giving Christianity a bad name.

I do see that you recognize this.

I doubt there is anyone here that wants to know about your experiences, I have never read anyone asking you about your experiences.

First of all, you do not understand ( saveCalifornia.com ). I have talked to the President of this organization personally and he is a very kind and loving man who loves Christ. He has been on CNN, Fox News and many local news in the past few months. You are judging something that you must not have taken the time to research what they are all about. I agree and financially support this group 100%. Just look up on your search "NOT BORN THAT WAY" and see how many homsexuals are being helped by this organization. We are here to help those that are sinning, not turning them away. If they do not listen to the Word of God, that is not our problem. I said in one of my post last evening, when my husband and I had our fellowship, we had discussed about gays showing up and we both agreed that it would be fine, but that was only to help them out of their sin like any other sin. Removing parts of the Bible we do not like and then feel that we are free is total deception. Satan's job in the world of our's is only to deceive people, for he does not work so much on the non-believer,he works on the believer to justify what they are doing so they will feel OK about themselves. For those who are for equality, it is not fair to let a sin go by and others that have other sins have to be forgiven. My husband and I will say this once to you and that is if you feel like homosexuals are excused from their sins and they can just go ahead and live that type of lifestyle and God will forgive them, then that will be the end of our conversation. We are only here to help people get out of their sins and set free, for if you have even one sin that you are doing, you are guilty of all because you are still living in that sin. Shall we sin that Grace may abound? God forbid!! My husband & I do not practice any type of sin as sin is defined in Scripture, for we do not please God at times, but we do not practice Sin. We live very strict lives and are happy because Christ is in us and with us in all that we do. Whenever there is issues in our home, we pray and take it to Christ and after 55 years of marriage, I have to say that It does work for my husband & I, for we have very different personalities & both know Christ as Savior and Lord of our lives and so we are ONE in Christ.

We should use Romans Chapter 1, for it condemns homosexuality 100%. If you do not believe in Apostle Paul's Epistles like some other people on this forum don't, then God help you for in Galatians Chapter 1 verses 11-12 and I quote: "But I certify you brethern, that the Gospel which was preached of me is not after man, neither was I taught it, but by the Revelation of Jesus Christ." So, Paul received these Epistles from Christ and whatever he says, it is GOSPEL TRUTH. AMEN & AMEN

I don't think they are excused from their sins anymore then any straight person is excused from their sins. Or your sins. Since you love experiences, I have had a few with the guy on the corner holding the sign that if we don't repent we will go to hell or the sidewalk street preacher doing the same. I notice that people walk around them, I notice they not one person stops and gets on their knees and surrenders to Christ. It turns people off. And the conclusion is that so do you.

<quoted text>Always as in over 10,000 years is what means marriage is one man and one woman. 37 states and 187 countries mean always. 13 states and 13 countries with SSM mean barely a scratch.
Historical context is the argument of fools. Women can vote, blacks are free and gays can marry. Sorry that disappoints you so.

Sorry if your are upset but Prop 8 was not declared unconstitutional. Please don't slit your wrist, but SCOTUS did not hear the case based on standing.
You are correct. No wrist splitting needed since Prop 8 is dead.

Your belief that you define what is normal doesn't bother me at all! It simply makes you look pathetic and sad.

Perhaps you should look up the word "norm", it is purposely social, culturally, mathematically and societal.
Why did you switch from normal to norm? They are two different things. Desperate much?!

Your rational fears about being gay is why the APA has help centers for homosexuals and have no need to have them even for bisexuals. Get the clue, the APA offers professional help for gays.
Wow. Rant much? Hon, I have no fears about being gay. What a stupid comment. You're beginning to sound as stupid as Brian_G the village idiot. There is nothing factual in your last statement whatsoever. Do you like making a dumbass out of yourself? Sure seems that way.

First of all, you do not understand ( saveCalifornia.com ).
An anti-gay rights group has purchased hourly radio spots to urge parents to keep their children home from school on Harvey Milk Day, which honors the gay rights pioneer. Randy Thomasson, president of the SaveCalifornia.com , said the group bought more than 100 time slots for a radio ad in Los Angeles and Sacramento. It urges parents to "protect your children from Harvey Milk indoctrination," by keeping them home from school on Wednesday. "This is harmful to children," In 2011 Save California head Randy Thomasson claimed that Harvey Milk Day would "unleash a tsunami of perversity" that would include "mock gay weddings" at public schools. In 2010 Thomasson claimed that Harvey Milk Day would include "cross-dressing contests" and that Milk endorsed pedophilia.

I think what is harmful is not letting our children know about different people. I think what is harmful is putting false fear into our schools. My son had a gay teacher, okay guess what subject..English...LOL...but he was a great teacher and even brought his partner into class one time, I don't think the students decided to be gay after that experience. Most kids know of all the 'normal' gays out there: entertainers, CEOs, neighbors, politicians, religious leaders, etc. Why would anyone send money to them to buy radio time to air its bigotry? Seems like your money to them is not turning anyone towards Christ, I would say it's more like turning them further away. What a shame!
