Will Gay Marriage Pit Church Against Church?

Apr 27, 2009 | Posted by: SongBookz | Full story: news.yahoo.com

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.

Except that there is no LEGITIMATE translation that condemns gays anywhere in the Bible. And putting YOUR limits on God's mercy is blasphemy.
I don't know of even one English Bible that doesn't condemn gays.

So you "believe" in God on the off chance that there might be one, one who will torture you for all eternity if you don't beileve?

That doesn't sound like real belief, just hedging your bets.

OOOOps, your faulty thought process has made you stumble. Does that mean that you will be lopping of your head?

lol...you're a pathetic, ignorant idiot...lol.
If you went to the link, you would see my comments were at the top, not any of the below from that link. Some one else was doing all the warning.
Why are you an ignorant pathetic idiot? Because you don't read to understand. You read with an agenda. That will always leave you an idiot till you stop.
A poster was claiming Canadian churches weren't fighting among themselves over gay marriage. It was a plausible statement and got me to wondering if it was true.
So I did some research. Actually Canadian churches do fight/disagree between themselves over same sex marriage and homosexuality issues as do American churches.
But the most interesting thing of the post that you never hear pro-homosexual advocates speak about concerning what took place with our northern neighbours, is that what they claim wouldn't happen to religious ministers here in America, them being forced by the US government against their will to marry same sex couples, that very thing happened in Canada.
At one time Canadian ministers had the option by religious freedom to choose or not to choose to marry same sex couples. But the Canadian government decided that it was against their constitution for religious ministers to act on their religious beliefs to refuse same sex marriages.
So the Canadian government passed laws so now religious ministers HAVE TO BY LAW OR SUFFER CRIMINAL ACTIONS marry same sex couples. Freedom of religion in Canada no longer constitutes a minister to act on his personal beliefs concerning same sex marriage.
And you, reverting to your pathetic idiot image didn't see that in that post.
When and if SCOTUS redefines marriage for Americans, if they redefine marriage as being that between any two persons regardless of race, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, etc, the next step to be taken will be what happened in Canada. Since marriage is a constitutional right for same sex persons, it will shortly be found unconstitutional for a religious minister in America, acting as a person with authority to legally marry, to deny same sex marriages based on the present principle of 'religious freedom'.
So what the pro-homosexual crowd has claimed would never happen, it will happen when same sex marriage is found to be a constitutional right by SCOTUS. Religious ministers will be forced to marry opposites sex and same sex even if it goes against their religious beliefs afforded to them by the constitutional right concerning freedom of religion.
Freedom of religion will be redefined a second time. It was first redefined in 1862.
Bullshit. Ministers are not required to marry ANYONE. Fear-mongering with your lies shows just how desperate you are.

Oh puh-leez. We all have the grave waiting for us. The "after life" is just wishful thinking.

Almost partially correct. "Exceeded" did not refer to his erection, but the orgasm he experienced...
That's what I thought it sounded like. An erection would just be "achieved" rather than "exceeded." LOL.

Idiotic nonsense! Exceeded comes from the Hebrew word gadal which means:
1) to grow, become great or important, promote, make powerful, praise, magnify, do great things
-a)(Qal)
--1) to grow up
--2) to become great
--3) to be magnified
-b)(Piel)
--1) to cause to grow
--2) to make great, powerful
--3) to magnify
-c)(Pual) to be brought up
-d)(Hiphil)
--1) to make great
--2) to magnify
--3) to do great things
-e)(Hithpael) to magnify oneself
----------
Exceeded is also used in 1 Kings 10:23- "So king Solomon exceeded all the kings of the earth for riches and for wisdom."
Obviously Solomon wasn't committing perverted sex acts with all the kings of the earth. So no matter how you try to spin your lies, they don't pass any logic whatsoever.
OK that definitely sounds like an erection, then.

For the third time, intent and context matter.

LOL. Did I ever say there is no God?

Wacko.

Following every word of any version of the bible "just in case" is a ridiculous strategy for your soul.

PRAY MORE. You're lost.

You're not helping your "homosexual agenda" by twisting the beautiful friendship between David and Jonathan into a perverted, disgusting sex act.
David and Jonathan were saying their goodbyes because Jonathan's father, Saul, was set to kill David and thus David had to leave and go into hiding.
Why don't you tear that page out of your 'bible' if gay marriage bothers you so much?
.
Perhaps if you rip it out fast enough Saul will succeed in murdering David and his fine @ss will crumble into a pile of dust
