I thinki North Carolina should ban marriage to anybody just to be sure that 2 people of the same sex don't get tempted to fall in love and want to live together as man and wife.

I don't think that anybody who is gay should be forced to have to use their tax dollars to help pay for unmarried staight born out of wedlock babies.

Or pay for anything to do with marriage or childrearing, like education, healthcare since gay people are denied access to these public benefits in the state of North Carolina.

homosexuality is an abomination before God, no matter what the gays' say : IT is sooooooo WRONG. A so called marriage between same sex couples - is not recognized or blessed by the God of Abraham. All of U who are (or support) homosexuality are an ABOMINATION!

According to you, the subject is your opinion of "abominations".

What are those exactly? Your source for a definition seems to be some bronze-age records.

Please, list what those bronze age records determine to be "abominations".

The issue is samesex marriage, to which some of the above posters are opposed. Their stated reasons are religious, in particular reference to "abomination" in their translation of some bronze age writings.

It is not unreasonable to look into the definition of abomination by examining all the instances where the words tranmslated as "abomination" are used.

So, again, please list all the "abominations" listed in your club rule book.

Evil provokes the wrath of God.( He is a loving God , and He is also a just God, He is worthy to render judgment) The wicked world has turned away from God and began to worship and exalt themselves - this didn't work for lucifer ,who was cast out. God's word is the truth and God's established word will stand! judgment day is coming to this world - to ALL people, are you ready?
Its wrong

Well duh, same sex marriage is about homosexuality and it is a sin, an abomination! all homosexuals need to go and jump back into that so called closet that you've claimed to come out of and REPENT and stay in there until you find salvation. Only then will you find TRUTH.

It, presumably. is a "sin" because your club's rule book calls it "abomination".

Please list all instances where the word(s) translated as "abomination" occur in your club's rule book.

obviously all homosexuals and homosexual supporters continue grasping at straws! NO ONE is superior to God, and there will be a judgment day for ALL people. All of your sarcasm is an attempt at trying to condone homosexuality. We Christians take God's word over yours! You are being deceived! When you find the Lord- you find the TRUTH. satan cares absolutely nothing for you- all he is interested in is deceiving you and keeping you from salvation. Eternity is forever. Don't you want to meet Jesus ? He paid the price for our sins when He was crucified on the Cross. Why would anyone choose darkness over light? beware- satan is out to mislead as many people as he can! The only way to salvation is through Jesus Christ!!!!
