Will Gay Marriage Pit Church Against Church?

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.

After reading most of these posts. I dislike the gay community even more now. It is my right to dislike anything and anyone. Before you attack me, Not breaking any commandments here just stating my dislike for this abomination of God's creation. You are mean wicked people. jealous of your own image. get over it and get straight.
There is only one true community and that is the human community. This is the community that all of us want to be a part of, even gay people.

Churches that seek to control this community only succeed in artificially dividing it against itself into warring factions of confused humans hating each other for their opposing viewpoints and excluding themselves from this human community by doing so.

Just as scientific evidence shows that the biblical phrase "the four corners of the earth" is ridiculous, so too does scientific evidence show that gay people are born gay just as the gay people themselves have been saying for centuries. Any interpretation of scripture that is used to prove otherwise is just as ridiculous as the insistence that the earth is flat, a denial of the reality that we all share.

Who would deliberately chose an orientation that would have them persecuted by a homophobic culture that would have them killed if it could, as Uganda and the Roman Catholic church among others wants to happen?

The arguments presented by the twue believers on this thread are mean and they are totally insane! Homophobia and it's denial of the reality of who we are is not from true Christians by any stretch of the imagination!

The only way to solve the so-called homosexual problem is to accept that all of creation should be respected for what it is, the creation of a LOVING GOD!

Reality is what it is. GOD is to be found in REALITY, not ancient books that are often totally misunderstood by the people who use them to prove that their religion, and only their religion is true!

And we know with the certainty that magnetic resonance imaging and other hard evidence has shown us, Gay people are born the way they are! Instead of denying this reality, should we not be asking ourselves, what is this lesson, this gift of wisdom that GOD is offering us?

If a person is born with same sex tendencies what about people who are are born as pedophiles or with sociopathic tendencies? After all, if it comes natural to people it must right and good.

Do we have to explain this to you again, stupid?

Pedophiles by nature cause harm. That is inherent in pedophilia, as a rule.

That's why it will never be legal.

Stupid.

Its already been demonstrated that homosexual sexual practices by nature cause harm. Don't be stupid and think that practicing homosexual sex is healthy. We know its not. Many of those who engage in it are very sick and are dying.

Those are outright lies.

You are presuming to know what same sex married couples (and opposite sex married couples, for that matter) do or don't do when they make love.

There is a difference between a remote chance of harm vs. inherent harm caused every time.

Try again, stupid.

It is amazing just how stupid Gays are! They attack Christianity because it doesn't agree with their lifestyle, yet their fail to realize most people do not obey their bible in the first place. Queers are hated because they are bigots and they are nasty!

And that would still be closer than you'll ever get. And keep your fantasies out of it. You'll be in prison soon enough and will be the favorite sperm bank there. You will get all kinds of love.

We can't help what you were born with. Let us know when you can tell the difference between the actions of two consenting adults, and predators who harm others.

Gays could care less about getting married.

Dissecting the 'gay' marriage charade

Published: 03/07/2012 at 7:51 PM

Anyone in the United States can participate in the institution of marriage Ė if they choose to do so.

Homosexuals donít usually choose to do so because they usually donít want to be married to members of the opposite sex. But itís their choice.

So why do homosexual activists make this claim? And how do they get away with making a patently false charge against a 6,000-year-old religious institution and the civil laws that it inspired?

Same-sex marriage advocates no more care about the legality of same-sex marriage than Hamas cares about the creation of a Palestinian state.

Neither is interested in creating something new Ė something that has never been before. Instead, what same-sex marriage advocates and the terrorists of the Gaza Strip have in common is their desire to destroy something they find repulsive. In Gaza, itís the Jewish state of Israel. Among homosexual activists, itís the institution of marriage.

By making the bogus claim that marriage, as it has been known through the eons, is inherently unfair because some people donít want to participate in it as it has always been defined, homosexual activists are able to establish for themselves what appears to be the political high ground of the victim. In exactly the same way, Arab terrorists are able to portray themselves as the victim by claiming they have been denied a state.

But scratch beneath the surface of these two movements and you will soon learn that their objectives go far beyond same-sex marriage and a Palestinian state.

For instance, letís examine the logic of the victimization homosexuals claim as the basis for pushing same-sex marriage. If it is true that limiting the definition of marriage to a union between one man and one woman is inherently a violation of civil rights, wouldnít it also be true that defining marriage as a union between just two people is equally discriminatory?

The advocates of same-sex marriage hate this challenge, because they have no intelligent response to it. By default, a capitulation to the same-sex marriage advocates represents future capitulation to the logic they use. That means support of same-sex marriage, to be consistent, must translate into support of polygamy and group marriages of any combination.

Recently, a columnist for the Huffington Post tried to make the case that, unlike same-sex marriage, which has never existed in the history of the world anywhere at any time, polygamy represents a clear and present danger to society. Thatís the distinction, he claimed. He cites one infamous polygamist leader charged with sexual assaults and incest-related felony counts as examples of how this works. Of course, he ignores a virtual epidemic of violence and molestation in the homosexual community in favor of one isolated case in the polygamy community.

Eliyahu Federman also states:ďThere isnít a shred of modern sociological evidence to support the claim that gay marriage is harmful to society, whereas there is a plethora of historical and contemporary evidence to illustrate the dangers associated with polygamy.Ē

Ten years ago, the notion of same-sex marriage was scarcely even discussed, let alone performed. So the absence of a body of evidence is a red herring. In the case of polygamy, however, we have thousands of years of history to examine.

It is amazing how quickly the same-sex marriage advocates have been able to rally support from the media, the cultural establishment, the government elite and the judiciary for a radical social experiment that challenges the fundamental building block of human civilization Ė the family.
