The only reason why they stayed married was because there wasn't a divorce court for Eve to run to in order to get half of Adam's stuff that she probably had no part in accumulating. She couldn't claim "mental cruelty" about Adam getting angry over the con job she pulled on him with the apple since courts weren't invented yet and she didn't have a simpering media to make excuses for her.
Why not let the gender benders play the marriage game hoax and discover what heterosexuals have learned at about three to four hundred dollars per billable hour in divorce court?
Stay single, retire early and watch your office pals (men, that is) work until they are in their 70's.
Frankly I like the idea of poofters working until their last day.

Basing laws on a religion text is a theocracy. We live in a representative democracy. It is incumbent upon then majority that they do not infringe on the rights of minorities. We have slowly evolved as a society and we will continue to do so. Of course many will still fall back on their Bible arguments (which if you really read the Bible, "traditional marriage" arguments fall apart but that's a whole other story. See DEUTERONOMY 22:28 for just one of many examples.)
My point is, you live your life, let me live mine with the same rights & privileges as you have, and we'll leave each other alone and live happily ever after.
Is that too much to ask?
There is no equality in divorce court---ask Johnny Carson's lawyer.

And what does that have to do with this survey? NBC29 doesn't conduct professional public opinion surveys. They occasionally report on them - you know, its a news agency with "report"-ers in it.

STOP IT with "the Bible says" and "traditional marriage". The Bible says a whole lot of things, many of which you conveniently ignore because they don't work for you. And marriage, over time and in different cultures, has meant many different things. Just be honest - you don't like the idea of same-sex couples having sex. That's what it boils down to. So here's an idea - DON'T THINK ABOUT IT. It doesn't hurt you, it doesn't hurt society, it's none of your business, you don't get to tell people how to live their private lives, so butt out. Love, commitment, family, and marriage are good for society. Get over it and get over yourselves.
That is where you are wrong. If left alone, as you say, homosexuality has the potential to destroy the human race. Homosexual unions cannot procreate. Sorry, that is a fact. A homosexual man or woman still needs the other sex to create life. God created man and woman, deal with it!

Oy. Ridiculous on so many levels it's hard to count.

So, let's see - if SOME people prefer same sex partners, this will inevitably lead to ALL people eventually having that preference? WTH?

Here's something to think about along those lines though - it's quite possible that the only way the planet and all of its life will ever survive is if the human race disappears. This would, of course, have to happen before it completely destroys all other living things. Sometimes I think that maybe the best thing for the planet - nay, perhaps the universe - would be the doomsday asteroid. Some things would survive it.

And as a final note, God - in that Judeo-Christian sense that you seem to mean it does not exist. As such it created nothing. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

OMG! An estimated 1.7% of the population in the U.S. over 18 is gay. You think that everyone is gonna turn gay by legalizing same sex marriage?

<quoted text>I've read the Bible, a good book, but not the only one in the library. If you want to believe that the Bible is telling you that such marriages are wrong, that would be between you and God, not our problem. You speak for the belief YOU chose, not one God has made you take, your reading of the Bible, not His fault. I'll bet you weren't aware of this, but there are many Christians who have read the same Bible you claim to have read and who have come to an entirely different conclusion as to what God wants. Sorry.
There are a lot of people who call themselves Christians who choose not to believe what God's Word reads. God's Word says in Leviticus 18:22, "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is an abomination." In I Corinthians 6:9-10, God's Word reads Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolators, nor adulterers, nor effeminate (which means homosexual), nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God." What part of these verses can be misunderstood? And before you say it, this is verses from the Old Testament and the New Testament. God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for these very reasons. You can sugarcoat it however you want, try to convince yourselves otherwise, but fact is fact. In God's eyes, it is an abomination, a despicable sin. As Christians, we are to love and pray for everyone, but not accept their sin as right.

Prove to me that He does not exist, because science has not been able to do it. All they do, is prove He does exist. Better yet, prove to me that air exists, show it to me. You know what, really you can not show me air, but yet you believe it exists because you keep taking those next breaths. So you know what if it makes you feel better about your beliefs to believe that God does not exist, that is between you and whoever you believe in. I will keep believing in my creator who created the breaths that I am taking while writing this. Oh and by the way, just for fun, let us say that we come to the end of the world and you are right there is no God, then I have not lost anything. I am happy living my life. BUT...Let us say that I am right and there is a God, what will you lose? Uh.... let me see, if you have denied him then you will have HELL to look forward to for an eternity. By the way, God's Word does talk about you in it, "the fool sayeth in his heart that there is no God." I hope that you are more intelligent than that.

Regina, give it up. The USA and its laws, including those of the states are very directly founded on valuing everyone's ability to choose his/her own religious mythology or choose none at all. You have made your own choice of mythology clear, and I respect that. Why don't you deliver to others to the same kind of respect.

Your "challenges" to the non-Judeo-Christian followers, btw, about "proof" of god and Pascal's Wager are juvenile. Just what do you think they accomplish? Whatever it is that you think they accomplish - you're wrong.

On that note, I am now opposed to gay marriage since Regina implies it will make us all gay. I like the opposite sex. I won't stand for the laws changing my mind about my sexuality.(Actually, I prefer farm animals, but I keep that to myself).

You have the right to NOT marry someone of the same gender, based on your religious beliefs, but you cannot force others to do as you do, simply because your personal religious interpretation say is it's not right for YOU.

A great many good Christians disagree with your interpretations.

Who get's to decide secular law for everyone else. YOU, or THEM?

That's why we fight to keep religion of of our secular government.

You could not answer my questions, so you instead get mad and tell me that my questions are juvenile. It is very interesting to me that I have asked the same questions to other people who believe the same way that you do and I get the same response...nothing. You know the answer, you just refuse to admit it. As far as giving you the same respect for your beliefs. I did not say that you had to believe the way I do, that is your choice. I do not try to force anyone to believe in God, nor does He. It is freewill. I just do not agree that the homosexual agenda is fair, they are trying to force their beliefs down our throats. For example, they take a religious symbol such as the rainbow and make it their symbol. God gave us the rainbow as a sign of promise that He would never again flood the earth interesting enough because the world was so wicked much as it is now. Christian beliefs are being trampled on constantly, and we are getting tired of being expected to conform to a worldly view. Believe the way you choose, that is between you and yes, God.

I am well aware of that dear, most of them praying that God hates homosexuals/homosexuality/homo sexual acts as much as they do.

Yes dear, it does say that, but you yourself do not follow the teachings of that particular book, now do you?

I wonder how God feels about your rewrite. I myself have never seen a version of the Bible which includes, "(which means homosexual)" in that particular text. FYI, the word translated to "effeminate" in the KJV and later English versions of this verse was translated as "soft", every other time it was used in the book. Christians originally taught its meaning as those having soft morals.

No he didn't dear, I've read the Bible, I know better. It isn't even listed among the reasons for God's wrath. Sorry.

Sweetie, you go right ahead and pray what you want, but if you are of the notion that the Bible actually says it agrees with them, think again.
