Okay, I looked it up.
Is that so? Would you please explain why the loving religion of Christianity determined to create new law which including executing those married in same sex unions a few hundred years after Jesus supposedly preached tolerance, acceptance, and love for all?

You said there was evidence. Investigations have yielded no evidence to support the noahs arc story.
Why is it so difficult for you to accept that you are and were incorrect?
There si evidence for the flood. Somebody was there and to tell the story.

There was evidence of fresh water shellfish going back some 7500 years and salt water shellfish going back 5000 years or so. That indicates a flood may have happened, but they do not know if it was something all at once or gradual.

That was the main point in the article you linked, Ink.

So has the church, then, since men can no longer buy wives or marry more than one. Which "original" definition did you mean, because even 20th-century marriage was NOTHING like it was even in the supposed time of christ.

Definitions of most words have changed to some extent over time. So has the church--or did vatican 2 not happen?

In terms of SSM, WE didn't change the definition you're thinking of--lawyers and lawmakers did, and damn near all of them were straight.

Yes they have indeed changed the original definition.

Well, there are the polygamists who say they are married when they clearly are not, legally. There are people who are married to their jobs, to an idea, and even to the mob. These are social changes, not legal ones. And the dictionaries reflect that. Dictionaries are authoritative concerning usage, not application.

If civil rights didn't mean blacks, too, then why did they have so much trouble getting their rights accepted? Why was it a legal issue if the meaning has always included minorities?

Because, just like your question, the answer is the same: Sometimes laws have to change to reflect the continuing enlightenment of society. Our founders recognized that there would and should be changes over time.

They don't. And why should they when legal marriage will serve the purpose?

Because of religious bigots who think their beliefs should hold sway in the public sphere, and are outraged that they can't anymore. The definition hasn't changed, merely the dominance of Christianity.

The wonderful thing is that a large majority of young people, our leaders of the very future, don't have these nonsensical prejudices against gay people to which these bigots desperately cling. Soon, SSM will be a non-issue.

Really? You know this for a fact? And this person just happened to not die in the flood? And knew how to read an write? Or found someone to procreate with, who also did not die, to pass on this story in the oral tradition?

There is evidence of extreme climate shifts, changes in the direction of the magnetic poles and and several transformations to the continents after they started as one large continent. Science provides concrete evidence of these changes while your religion only offers it's usual "cuz we say so" evidence.

I wouldn't be too enthusiastic about claiming the flood story as real since it shows very clearly what a mass murdering b@stard your God really is.

I see - my suggestion came a little late, since you likely sewed your member to your poop chute as a youngster. Children are so capricious.

I'll post volcanic if that's what floats my boat, chumley. The outrageously stupid is your bailiwick...have fun with that.

Sure, you can find evidence of flooding on our planet, but there is no evidence to link any of them to the biblical, noahs arc story.

They think it may have been like Niagra Falls.

Why not? It is a story inspired by a huge flood that, it looks like, really happened.

Just Christianity, huh?

July 2010 public statement by some leaders[edit]

On July 22, 2010, a "Statement of Principles on the Place of Jews with a Homosexual Orientation in Our Community" was released.[13] It was written primarily by Nathaniel Helfgot, Aryeh Klapper, and Yitzchak Blau. Signatories include more than a hundred rabbis and laypeople. Some of the statement's more notable supporters are Rabbi Marc Angel, co-founder of The Rabbinic Fellowship; Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, founder of Lincoln Square Synagogue, Efrat, and Ohr Torah Stone Institutions; and Rabbi Avi Weiss, head of the Hebrew Institute of Riverdale, founder of Yeshivat Chovevei Torah and Yeshivat Maharat, and co-founder of The Rabbinic Fellowship. Rabbi Weiss is also notable for his ordination of Sara Hurwitz, which was strongly condemned by the Haredi Agudath Yisrael (which called it non-Orthodox), and also firmly rejected by the Modern Orthodox Rabbinical Council of America.[14]

The statement makes it clear that homosexual activity is still prohibited, saying inter alia that "Halakhah sees heterosexual marriage as the ideal model and sole legitimate outlet for human sexual expression"; "Halakhic Judaism views all male and female same-sex sexual interactions as prohibited"; and "halakhic values proscribe individuals and communities from encouraging practices that grant religious legitimacy to gay marriage and couplehood". However, it emphasizes that homosexuals need to be treated with compassion and respect.

Hate to tell you what the Muslims say.

Show me a dictionary that isn't recent that includes same sex relationship as a 'marriage.'

The meaning has been changed. Why not just accept it and be 'Gay Power Proud'
