I want nothing to do with the god of this world, Satan.

Clinging is futile. Your God's sway is coming to an end. You can feel it too. I know you can. I see it inevery post you make. Just remember that people who call themselves "nones" are not on your side of history. They are the third biggest religious classification in the world. Can ya feel it?

Standing firm behind the Word of God is not being a bigot. Marriage is between a MAN and a WOMAN only, that's not denying a homosexual any equal rights. SIN isn't a minority class.
The Bible/church/religion has nothing at all to do with our Constitution and national laws.
Grow up.

It is so crazy the way these people treat religion. I was raised Catholic, don't consider myself that anymore, just call myself your run of the mill "Christian" as in the literal translation "follower of Christ."

My faith is very strong and very important to me.

If you look at comparable non-faith based practices, you can see how similar principles lead to certain benefits; i.e. not stressing over things (in my world "trusting God")= better health, etc.

Yet I feel no compulsion to puke my religious views out all over other people and claim I know all the right answers.

I feel no threat from other religions or from atheists. Live and let live.

I absolutely disagree with the notion that Christianity of any stripe should dominate in the US. It has actually done that for a very long time - against all the rules - and now that it is being put back in its place, some object as if they are being somehow wronged.

So there is a "productive, intelligent Christianity" which is healthy and personally helpful, not crusade-based, not non-thinking, not offensive.

Too bad so many have corrupted it into the ugliness displayed on these pages.

1. There is no correct Word Of God on Earth. All you have are translations of translations which cannot possibly be 100% accurate as no language translates perfectly into another.

2. Whether you use your religion as an excuse or not, bigotry is bigotry. Denying gay people marriage rights is bigotry by definition. You don't get to weasel out of that, it is solid fact.

3. Marriage is between same sex people in several states. I am married to another man. So your assertion that marriage is between a MAN and a WOMAN only is simply false.

4. Your interpretation of sin is irrelevant to law.
1) God has preserved His Word.

2) Homosexuals only want to marry to mock the institute of marriage. You hate God's Word because it convicts you of your sins....

3) God's established marriage (MAN and WOMAN) is the only one that is valid and legit

4) God blesses Godly nations and curses evil nations

You're following a fallen angel, Satan. The Devil has already been sentenced to eternal Hell (he isn't there yet though), so he wants to deceive and drag as many fools that he can along with him.

God and His Christians have already won..........we are just trying to win more over to the winning side. Quit being deceived by the Devil!

I don't believe in your god. WTF makes you think I would believe in your personal made up nightmare Satan? You really can't think your way past the end of your medulla , can ya?

Telling me your god has won is the same as telling me that Draco Malfoy won. I really don't care.

You said COMMUNITIES.......they are not the same as WEALTHY FAMILIES.......and this is what I'm trying to get at, but you keep changing the situation!!!
Again, you are EXPLAINING FAMILIES, but you started out with COMMUNITIES......they are NOT the same!!!
Man are you tense! lol Take a chill pill.
The program is called Habitat for Humanity but it isn't HUD sponsored. You apply. If accepted, you have to prove you have reliable work and for a couple years in your community, you are required to help other applicants build their homes. Volunteers from the community come and help build these homes. This program exists in all 50 states. So yes even in our modern age, people of a community do help others to build their home.
Quakers build a new house for newly weds. Quakers build buildings that all share together, like a central kitchen and dinning hall, barns, etc.
Homes have been built in various ways. The primary ways were first communities and isolated areas where several families might live a few miles apart. They would gather to help each other build a new barn or home etc. Than as towns and cities evolved someone began to build homes and apartments for people to buy or rent. Than you have always had the industrious person with saved $ who would build their own home with or without help.
What is your issue with this any way?
