"No person who denies the being of a God shall hold any office in the civil departments of this State, nor be competent to testify as a witness in any Court."
Maryland:
"That no religious test ought ever to be required as a qualification for any office of profit or trust in this State, other than a declaration of belief in the existence of God; nor shall the Legislature prescribe any other oath of office than the oath prescribed by this Constitution.
Mississippi:
"No person who denies the existence of a Supreme Being shall hold any office in this state."
South Carolina:
"No person who denies the existence of a Supreme Being shall hold any office under this Constitution."
Tennessee:
"No person who denies the being of God, or a future state of rewards and punishments, shall hold any office in the civil department of this state."
Texas:
"No religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office, or public trust, in this State; nor shall any one be excluded from holding office on account of his religious sentiments, provided he acknowledge the existence of a Supreme Being."

Whether you want to believe or not is irrelevant to history. Your proclivity to faith over fact has already been amply demonstrated.
Here is the ONLY facts you should be worried with...
God is real...
We ALL die...
Either you believe Jesus paid for your sins, or not...
It's all up to you!

You didn't just quote the study that has already been sooooo criticized for unsound methodology and flaws that it has been all but discarded and repudiated...
Yep, you did. Even the journal has pulled it for not being adequately reviewed. But of course, none of that would matter to you, as you don't care about the truth - only your meth dreams. The Regnerus study itself acknowledges that what is really being compared with heterosexual families are not families headed by same-sex couples, but households in which parents broke up. This has long been established as a risk factor for poor outcomes in children.
Answer this. How many of the families studied were the children raised by a same sex couple through adoption?(got a hint for ya - about a handful). There is a ton of information as to why the study is flawed if you had any desire to know the truth - but we know you don't.
It is highly ironic that you actually quote a discredited study, yet thumb your nose at actual science.
"The study has also been deemed scientifically invalid by the American Psychological Association, the American Psychiatric Association, the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Psychoanalytic Association among others."
Try again.
Hahahaha!
It's always funny... you don't like a study, or what discovery says, or anyone that might just have some wisdom in the field of what he speaks... That's ok, as I was (kinda) like you...
Here's a test for ya...
Pop a headlight bulb out of yer car...
take a taillight bulb, n put it in the headlight socket...
turn it on!
Don't work!
Now... jurry rigg the taillight with tape n wires to
get the light to work, n put the light into the housing...
Drive around (at night)...
You might see a lil bit, but not well!
*** WHY?***
Because... It was NOT 'Designed' for that!
Just as the 'Headlight' bulb was Designed for the Headlight...
Your Penis was 'Designed' for a Vagina!
NOW... Deny that!
Just as a 'Family' is Designed to have a Father, AND a Mother!
Anything else.... is a Perversion of Design,
And will NEVER produce the Desired results!
God is real, and ALL Un-Righteousness WILL be cast away!

But... go ahead and believe what you want!

It's a shame that we need studies and statistics to prove what should be understood, more or less, instinctively.
I firmly believe that the strength of the gay marriage movement lies in the apathy of the general public. They may very well win on this issue just because no one cares enough to think it through.
As far as stats on boys from single mother homes well, just check with sources related to crime and prison populations.
None of these facts will be any surprise to those that have not had their thinking polluted by political correctness or perversion.
Very true!
There will always be a study that Leans one way or the other, someone saying this aint correct... No Wisdom in their thinking!
I've live in that perversion, and truly know it as a perversion by satan himself! How messed up you have to be to think this life is only made for our plesures at the cost of our souls!
I have many links of ex-gays who swore they were "Born" that way, and could never change... waking up, n realizing just how stupid, n sick they were... I've posted them many times, and few refute those postings!
It all ties to the garden... "Did God really say...."
Yes! God said it was an Abomination... Clear n simple!
I used to wish that I knew then what I know now, But....
I wouldn't have the knowledge, and appreciation for
Righteousness, as I do now!
Praise God!

The only one talking about religion is you. The gay sexual act is a perversion of biology. Whether you believe in ID or evolution it's not built into the design. I mean trying to explain this to you guys is like trying to explain to a 4 year old why he can't eat candy all of the time. You throw your tantrums, "I want it, I want it, I want it!" and "You're mean!" when you don't get it. To bad. You don't get to undermine the very foundations of society and civilization because you can't figure out what your pee pee is used for. I mean the next thing you'll be whining that you want doing number two to be considered giving birth and then demand a tax exemption for it.

wow! That's not true. God does not hate anyone. He loves everyone. What book are u reading. HE hates sin. All sin. Not people. Get it right people. Wow. Lol. He LOVES u too
Amen!
John
3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only-begotten
Son, that whoever believeth in him, should not perish, but have
everlasting life.
3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the
world, but that the world through him may be saved.
3:18 He that believeth on him, is not condemned: but he that
believeth not, is condemned already, because he hath not
believed in the name of the only-begotten Son of God.
3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the
world, and men have loved darkness rather than light, because
their deeds were evil.

I don't hate gays. I don't hate anybody. I hate their influence on the youth of the world.
Why? Homosexuality isn't a learned behavior. It is inherent. It occurs at roughly the same statistical degree across time and geography. If Timmy isn't gay it is highly unlikely that his gay dads are going to make him gay. Sure, he might experiment. We are sexual creatures. A straight man or woman can easily experiment. But in the end you don't really control what makes you tick.

Disliking the "influence" of gays is indicative of a dislike of gays.

You are either a liar or extermely ignorant. Why don't you look up the statistics as to how many gays were either sexualy abused, had too early exposure to pornography or lesbians that came out of abusive relationships with men.
Homosexuality is a sexual confusion that is so intimately linked to sexual trama that I honestly can't believe that anyone would say otherwise. You're so completely driven bt agenda that you would deny that which is basic knowledge. If you want the truth do your own research. But I doubt that you are interested in truth. Your adgenda is to completely normalize homosexuality with gay marriage and then attack the age of consent with all of the same language.

BTW... I see my youtube links of ex-gay testimonies
have been moved, and typing "ex-gay testimonies"
in the youtube search window will get you some testimonies, but there's a lot of sick stuff too!

You are either knowingly or unknowingly on the side of child abuse by supporting / promoting homosexuality.

The following books, with page numbers, refer to the fact that many many homosexuals were sexually abused when young:

Teen Prostitution by Joan J. Johnson (NY & Chicago: Franklin Watts Publishers, 1992), p. 53.

Female Perversions by Dr. Louise J. Kaplan (NY: Doubleday, 1991), p. 437.

Invisible Lives by Martha Barron Barrett (NY: William Morrow & Co., 1989), p. 140.

Incest and Sexuality by therapists Wendy Maltz and Beverly Holman (Lexington, MA: Lexington Books, 1987), p. 72.

The Secret Trauma by Prof. Diane E.H. Russell (NY: Basic Books, Inc., 1986), p. 199.

The Broken Taboo: Sex in the Family by B. and R. Justice (quoted in the book Incest: a family pattern by Jean Renvoize [London: Routledge and Kegan Paul, 1982], p. 127).

The following books refer to the fact that many young victims of sexual abuse later experience confusion over their sexual identities:

The Consumer's Guide to Psychotherapy by Drs. Jack Engler and Daniel Goleman (NY: Simon & Schuster/Fireside, 1992), p. 414.

Desires in Conflict by Joe Dallas (Eugene, OR: Harvest House Publishers, 1991), p. 187.

Betrayal of Innocence by Dr. Susan Forward and Craig Buck (NY: Penguin Books, 1988), p. 96.

Great post!
I've been on here 2 years, and have found that
(1) They don't care...
(2) They go with whatever is Politically correct...
(3) They've had a lobotomy!
