Why get married if you can't procreate?
To make a mockery out of REAL God ordained marriage......which is only between a MAN and a WOMAN!

It's bad enough the divorce rate is so extremely high. Now add same sex "marriage" to the equation and God help us all!!!! What happened to 1 man and 1 woman until death do them part?

Why don't you do something to prevent divorce then?

My marriage is not making a mockery out of the institution of marriage......straights have done that for years!!!!

Oh and good Christian folks HAVE DONE AN EVEN BETTER job of making a mockery of it......lol!!!

I'm just pointing out another flaw in same sex marriage. Its built into the system that a child will always lack either a mom or a dad. This is not a good thing for a child. Agreed?
Well then that's a flaw in the human race, since it is built into the system that some moms and dads leave or get cancer or beat their kids. So take that up with God.

The government doesn't guarantee kids will have 2 opposite sex parents. Neither does God. So, by design, a certain number of kids will always grow up without 2 opposite sex parents. Sometimes that is by peoples' choice. Sometimes it is by unforseen circumstances.

And no, I don't agree with your last statement. Depending on the circumstances, it can either be a challenge or a bonus for a particular child.

WTF, a bible based marriage is between a man and as many wives as he can collect, afford, be given and or steal.

No. Strengthen the traditional family. When we have strong families children usually turn out well.
And do you think that's a solid plan that will work right away or ever?

All you are doing is generalizing. "Strengthening the traditional family" will not eliminate those cases.

And in strong gay families, children also usually turn out well.

Likewise, there are huge numbers of kids from traditional families who turn out horribly.

It's the personalities that matter more than anything else, including gender.

A single mom who is attentive and loving is better than two parents of any gender on drugs.

sometimes it's just too much work to answer you. It's like explaining things to a 5 year old.

Why get married if you can't procreate?
Didn't you already answer that question when asked why senior citizens would marry? Or was that another dummy?

Many people who can't or don't want to procreate get married. Who are you to question them?

I don't intend to have children, yet I still wanted to get married - partly because that's just how I was raised and what society does, partly because I wanted to make it "official" before God and our families to let everyone know that we have committed together for life, we are now part of each others' families, and we are each off the market forever. And also for the practical things that go along with that such as property rights, potential children (who's to say my brother won't get killed in a car accident, God forbid, and I won't end up raising his kids?)

But bottom line - none of your business. You may not see any value in marriage without children, but many do, and so does the government.

Again, you're exhausting because you make me discuss such inane things.

You don't have a marriage in the eyes of God. Marriage is only between a man and a woman.

Yes, many so-called "Christians" have made an absolute mockery out of marriage. The church is supposed to be setting the example for the world, instead many so-called "Christians" are following the world. Christians are supposed to be the light of this world......

Did I reference her in any way when I posted that link? Did i address her in any way when i posted it? Why does she take criticisms of her leaders personally? How is showing another of the lizard's latest tactics a personal reflection on her? I find it awfully odd that any criticism of her cult somehow becomes a personal attack on her. She made that leap, perhaps u can explain it.
We'll have to wait to hear from her, but if you posted everything the Pope said and directed it at me for comment, I would be annoyed with you.

Amen!!!! Every child deserves to have a father and a mother growing up. This is God's way, this is how the family unit is set up.
You conveniently ignore the bazillion times it doesn't happen that way - including by death during childbirth, death during war, death in a car accident, death by disease, etc. etc.

Obviously God meant for those things to happen, so obviously not every child was meant to grow up with two opposite sex parents.

Add same sex marriage to the equation and the divorce rate goes down, stupid.

You unbelievers just lie about everything.........go read John 8:44 for the best definition that explains why.

The Word of God is the absolute authority for everything us REAL Christians believe and stand for.......

Thus you Topix unbelievers can't win debates so you gang up on people and try to troll them to leave........and when that doesn't work you cry to your "friends in high places" for help.

Fortunately for us, you don't get to decide that.

We do have a marriage in the eyes of God, and no little troll babbling on a message board can dispute that.

There ya go again trying to be GOD or speak FOR God, either way you are clueless as to whether or not God has blessed this marriage......and I do recall the Minister blessing our union under God!!!

The Church DOESN'T control or regulate marriage.....the State does!!!

Well, folks who believe like you aren't doing a very good job at it.......so, maybe you should work on your issues and leave the rest to God!!!

If I posted everything the pope said and directed it at u, u should be annoyed. But that isn't what happened. She wasn't even mentioned.
I would Imagine if a post is made about something the pope does that u disagree with, it would prompt u to either make the statement that u don't agree or stay out of the debate, not attack the person making the criticism.

Since the Scripture is the only place we know where God speaks about marriage where did He say anything about same sex marriage? Book, chapter and verse please.
