It does not matter who says it's legal,
Yes, actually it does. The Constitution trumps your bible in this country and it always will.
gospel wrote:
the bible says homosexuality is a sin,
that’s completely debatable, and many biblical scholars disagree with your interpretation. In the end it’s irrelevant. You bible states a LOT of ridiculous things, which is why our Constitution makes sure that no citizen is subject to it’s nonsense.
gospel wrote:
so when you die you will go to hell for living a life of sin,
Your bible makes it quite clear that only your Hebrew god knows who will go to heaven or to hell. Are you god?
gospel wrote:
you can choose not to believe in the bible, that's your choice,
That’s not a choice. YOU can choose to believe in it. Given that there is absolutely no evidence anywhere that you deity is not a complete myth, not believing in him is not a choice. You’re statement is a stupid as saying,“you can choose not to believe in Zeus, that’s your choice”. See how stupid that sounds? Not believing in things there is no evidence is not a choice, it’s simply rational thinking.

Homosexuality and marriage has nothing to do with “pleasing one’s self”. Thanks for demonstrating how absolutely uneducated you are on what’s being discussed in this forum.

Oh, and just fyi, if “heaven” means spending an eternity with your deity (who never once says that humans are worthy of respect or fairness, and who is both a murderer and a rapist) and his dumbass followers like yourself? No thanks.

Now, you trot along and find a forum that is related to your Hebrew god. That is not what this forum is about.

"In one of the briefs, 14 former Michigan Republican legislators and others in the party affirmed that conservative "values are advanced by recognizing civil marriage rights for same-sex couples," rather than harmed.
Marriage is strengthened and its benefits, importance to society, and the social stability of the family unit are promoted by providing access to civil marriage for same-sex couples," they argue. "Providing access to civil marriage for same-sex couples poses no credible threat to religious freedom or to the institution of religious marriage."
Allowing gay marriage makes the institution of marriage stronger and supports conservative values.

Right. Only you know about the Hebrew god, and everyone else is supposed to sit back and listen to YOUR version of him till the cows come home, right? Fundamentalists are so hypocritical.

cause if you did you would not be making the accusations you are making.
That’s based on your opinions. Opinions the majority of people don’t agree with. And if you had any sense of decency or human respect, you would not be making the accusations YOU are making. But decency and respect aren’t high on the importance meter for fundamentalists are they.

Like I said the truth is in the bible not in your bias statements.
That is your opinion. Many do not share it. Your bible also states that there are four limbed flying creatures, that the moon emits light, that the earth is the center of the universe, that the earth was at one time completely covered in water, and that the earth is only 6000 years old. You’re bible is full of bullshit that has been scientifically PROVEN to be inaccurate.

That doesn't answer my question.

Jesus was under the Law. According to the Law, a woman caught in adultery should be stoned to death. The legalistic Pharisees brought the woman to Jesus and wanted her stoned to death. Instead Jesus showed her mercy and forgave her.

Did Jesus sin because He failed to do what the Law commands?

Or did He obey a higher Law when He choose to show mercy?

No actually this thread is at the top of the list every time I check out topix, once in a while I'll read some of the post to see what keeps it so popular, you can accuse me of any thing you want, I know where my heart is, and I'm not preaching any where just pointing out the simplest of facts pertaining to this topic,
Wow, now there’s a load of BS.

1) Were you asked about your deity by another poster? If the answer is no, then you most certainly are “preaching”. More accurately you’re proselytizing.

2) You’ve presented no facts, only your religious opinions.

3) Religion does not pertain to this thread in any way. This thread is about homosexuals and their marriages and originally how it related to Illinois.

I don't hate any one, but the bible tells those who have the comprehension while reading it that if your brother is living in sin to educate him and make it known to him so he can deal with it, the devil deceives us anyway he can he knows our weakness so if you are lonely the devil will exploit this and convince you it's ok to sleep with whoever, people aren't born gay it's a lie they believe because the devil exploits their weakness, it's very simple for those who are interested in learning you study the bible ready to learn you will see the truth and be happy and content with the truth, people seek happiness in life willing to do anything to find it, just read your bible with an open heart, there is no hate in it just lesson after lesson on love respect and finding happiness, anyone who tells you different has never really read it
Thanks for sharing your version of Christianity and your opinions that go along with them. However, no one asked you for your religious opinions, nor do they have anything to do with this thread.

Look in the mirror much? What you know about homosexuality is zilch. nada. zip. But like most fundamentalists, you can't moe on and grow because you've got stuck on what was spoon fed to you by religious people who are also as clueless as you and they believe the lies they speak. You refuse, so we move along without you.

Um, moron, AIDS is an acronym not a word. It's also a diagnosis, not an illness so no one will die of AIDS. And for the record, HIV (the actual virus) was spread by and through straight people for nearly 60 years before it ever entered the gay community. But you're 60, one can see why you're so uneducated about current things.

Um, dingleberry, the word homosexuality didn’t even exist until 1890. So for you to believe that it had a Hebrew, Aramaic or Greek equivalent in the original texts demonstrates how foolish you are. In addition, homosexuality is a characteristic, not an act. It can’t be “practiced”. So if these really are the words of your god, then he comes off sounding like as big a dumbass as his fanatic of followers.

But thanks for demonstrating how religious leaders have continued to alter the texts for their own personal agendas. And the sheep follow.

When people see a ss couple standing next to a husband and wife with their children, do you really think they think those are the same relationships???

of course not stupid. Gay couples aren't trying to be passed of as straight couple....that's something you made up in your delusional head.....there's all kinds of couples....there's even different types of straight couples. The world isn't black and white nor was it intended too be. If everything was, hemaphrodites wouldn't exhist, therefore you wouldn't exhist....

When people see you naked in the locker room, standing next to normal men, do you really think that they look at you and think your vagina is the same as their penises?

Of course you are. That is why you demand your relationship be called marriage.

A ss couple can NEVER identify with a husband and wife standing with their children.

An epic fail.

Get your own relational identities and quit trying to impose a fraudulent counterfeit on marriage!

I admit my birth defect, why are you such a sissy about admitting your sexual birth defect?

lol hey idiot. I love how you always try and say anyone who doesn't buy your garbage is gay....Once again I'm a man married to a woman, we have children......I'm not a side show freak like yourself with an IQ of 4....,marriage is just a term that shows 2 people are legally together, that includes hermies. You're not all man, so if you don't want gays to marry then you can't marry idiot. You may not want to admit it but you are gay. You were born a woman. Your god decided you needed a vagina and you married another vagina, so you are gay. No amount of cosmetic surgery can change that. The only fraudulent marriage is when a hermie tries passing its self off as only 1 gender. All these ignorant statements your making, lmfao, you're only bashing yourself......you'll never be a straight man...sorry freak blame your god for making you what you hate....i think its hillarious.....try to be just a man, you'll never be one.....lol you'll always just be a looser at life.....lol
