I guess he figures the best way to promote jobs and stimulate the economy is to harm hardworking, tax-paying families in the state.

There seems to be a logic gap, here.

Your chosen religious beliefs have nothing to do with civil marriage laws, or any other civil laws for that matter.

BTW, God doesn't call it an abomination, you do, the writers and translators of your bible might have, but God didn't.

Save your threats of hell for gullible idiots that lap up this pablum.

God calls it an abomination.
You'll understand when you stand before Him
at the Judgement and He says,
"Depart from Me, I never knew you."
They you'll be cast into hell for eternity.
You'll have forever to think about it with a spirit
body that will never burn up in heat that would make
the sun feel like ICE.
Forever , in torment...no end.
And, there's no way to convince you that
you're wrong. So sad.
It's not a lifestyle...it's a sin.

The only side you are on is the side of hate. The God of love sent us His Son to reveal His true path for us all. Then He committed the ultimate sacrifice to prove His words and to show us His love. You reject Him, His sacrifice, and His love. That is the saddest thing of all. Eternity without God will be your "hell".

Try again. Not all people who disagree with YOU are bigots. YOUR prejudice is showing.

Why insist on REDEFINING an institution simply because YOU want it redefined? Marriage is between one man and one woman. Call it something else... and I will fight WITH you to allow the same rights and privileges afforded to marriage for same sex unions of whatever name you choose to call it EXCEPT marriage.

You went there.

If you are espousing the God of the Bible, you can't pick and choose what HE says to suit your political agenda.

God did sacrifice for us. He does love us. He also created us to love Him. He says, in His Word... IF we love Him, OBEY Him. He also clearly takes a stand on homosexual acts... as well as any other sexually immoral acts outside of marriage between a man and a woman.

I believe there is grace and forgiveness because of God's mercy. But, I also believe it's made clear in Scripture that homosexual sex is sin.

I do not espouse the God of the bible....because the God depicted by the men who wrote it has little resemblance to the real God. The real God loves us all unconditionally. All He asks of us is to love Him and to love all that He created. You purposely turn your back on His will, and worship a book written by those who would control others. Eternity alone will be your fate.

You are right, bigotry is an abomination in the eyes of God.

Fortunately, fewer and fewer folks are embracing it as you have, just as fewer heretics, such as yourself, are pretending to stand in the place of God to judge the hearts and souls of others.

Bigotry is indeed a chosen lifestyle, based only on the irrational hatred of others.

Pray that God softens your heart toward your fellow human beings, and that you become a winsome shining light that guides others toward Christ. It's never too late for that.

At this point youa re only concerned in driving others away. And that's sad.
