The trouble they see is not just an America where general support for gay marriage will have driven a wedge between churches and the world, but between churches themselves.

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?

So you are wife? Think about it: a wife is a man. Got it.
Look idiot......Tony is married to a man.....BOTH are husband's.......why? Because a man who is LEGALLY married is referred to as a HUSBAND regardless of the gender of their spouse.

My wife and I are LEGALLY married women.......a married woman is call a WIFE, therefore I am Mrs-Whitewater's wife and she is mine!!!!

You'd think you could have figured this out!!!

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!
Holy Scripture clearly says to love your neighbor as yourself.
Where does Scripture say anywhere, that you must love your neighbor except if he be Catholic or an atheist or a homosexual?

2) Homosexuals only want to marry to mock the institute of marriage. You hate God's Word because it convicts you of your sins....
How are Gay and Lesbian couples mocking the institution of marriage? I would think folks who marry, divorce, remarry, divorce, remarry again and divorce again would be making a mockery of the institution of marriage more so than committed loving Same-Sex Couples who has been together for over 5, 10, 20 or longer in a monogamous relationship:-)

God isn't going to convict Gays and Lesbians for something He created them to be......however God may convict you for trying to speak FOR Him instead of allowing God to do His job!!!

I wouldn't be here if I didn't love my neighbor. I won't be silent when Satan is leading so many to their eternal Damnation in Hell.

I try, and I'm not even gay:
1. They don't breed welfare babies.
2. On a average, they make more money than straight people.
3. They don't join groups/gangs and beat up straight people for being straight.
4. I can trust them not to hit on my wife.
5. They run the fashion industry, showing that as a people, they have creative minds, and have great taste.
6. They are accepting of all except those who openly hate them.
7. They pay a lot of taxes.
8. Jesus loves them.
9. I love them.
10. They return the love.

In your opinion which is better: children born out of wedlock or in a traditional marriage?
YOU certainly don't.

Want to get back to that little list of "bad" things? We can go point by point. It's called analysis (rather than opinionation).

Should we encourage women to have babies out of wedlock? Is that something society should encourage?
Does anyone, other than teenage boys and their own hormones, in fact do this?

Standing up for the God ordained traditional marriage (MAN and WOMAN) isn't being a bigot. In fact, many non-Christians would agree with that.
Children deserve to have their father and mother raising them. Not mom and her lover....or dad and his lover.

You tell him! I'm not gay or bi, but I'm definitely for gay rights. Do you remember when Ratzi said he was going to rid the world of homosexuality? What's he gonna do? Pray it away? LOL

You're here because it's the only place you can get attention. Most likely, everyone around you is tired of listening to your rantings.
