Do you have the right to marry the person of your choosing? If so, then why shouldn't Gays and Lesbians have that same right? it's not ASSumed, it is being denied strictly because of people's religious beliefs that HAVE NO BUSINESS IN GOVERNMENT!!!

God does not RUN our Government and therefore what you believe God intended is again IRRELEVANT!!!

By the way, Churches DON'T issue marriage licenses and can not sign off on a marriage license UNLESS they have signed on to be a representative of the State!!!

I guess it's easier to create your own God to please yourself than repent and be saved by the God of the Bible. Jesus of the Bible is the ONLY way to salvation.

"He is the STONE WHICH WAS REJECTED by you"

Acts 4:10-12 (NASB)
10 let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead—by this name this man stands here before you in good health. 11 "He is the STONE WHICH WAS REJECTED by you, THE BUILDERS, but WHICH BECAME THE CHIEF CORNER stone. 12 "And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved."

"those who are perishing" "the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving"

2 Corinthians 4:3-4 (NASB)
3 And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 4 in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

Surely sodomites are homosexuals, anyway why should anyone care whether or not they "inherit the [fictitious] kingdom of god"?
You do realise that the lower a person's IQ, the more susceptible they are to religious dogma. Google it! You certainly prove the point.
I realize you don't care now. But you will care when they come for you.

"the furnace of fire"

Matthew 13:49-50 (NASB)
49 "So it will be at the end of the age; the angels will come forth and take out the wicked from among the righteous, 50 and will throw them into the furnace of fire; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

They will find you.

Well that's just it. "The" bible HAS been changed. To use your own language, Satan HAS attacked it and succeeded in using it to corrupt people like you into following his ways.
If you were sincere in your faith, the very mention of such a suggestion would make you want to delve deeper, to learn more, to make sure that was not true. If it was really important for you to follow God accurately, you would want to make absolutely certain you were taking the proper instruction, wouldn't you?
I am more concerned about what God really wants. I did my research to make sure what the priests were telling me was true (just as I double-check doctors, teachers, or anybody else who tells me something that could have potentially big ramifications.)
And when I did that, I found there is no original bible on earth. We have the Dead Sea Scrolls, but all they do is show things are "similar" from one point to another. They are not the original bible, and there is no original bible with which to compare them.
That's like taking a bible from the 1600's and one from today and saying, hmmm...because these two are so similar, they must be identical to the original. Nonsense!
And if you really cared about what God wanted, you would face that question head on and not follow your own WISHES. In doing so, you worship a man-made bible as an idol to the detriment of a healthy relationship with God.
If we knew what the original said, there would not be so many versions in existence.
What we do know is translations differ. And if you claim ONE WORD of difference is not important, you don't understand God. Do you want to follow God "close enough" or get it right?
Translations differ partly because of the natural challenges of translating ANY language perfectly into another. If you took a basic Spanish class, you'd know that never happens.
But partly they differ because people like you with an agenda against gay people made specific changes they thought would keep gay people down.
You are worshipping a corrupted book. God does not appreciate it. I seriously doubt He appreciates the ugly way you represent Him.
Why are you trying to convince me? What do you have to offer? Nothing.

No book can even come close to the awesomeness of the Bible ... none whatsoever ... ever

A Closer Look at the Word of God .. The Bible says of itself,“The Word of God is living and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword.” It is vital to the Christian that we know beyond doubt that God’s Word is both valid and authoritative. This study guide will lead you to solid conclusions in that regard ... http://bobgeorge.net/teaching/closer-look/wor... .. continue

And that's why Satan's children are here attacking what God said. They are obsessed with hatred for God's word. They keep trying to change it, rather than changing themselves.

Folks like you can't just answer the question, they must bring up other things like incest, polygamy and whatever else they think will make them sound big and bad......but the truth of the matter is it isn't "GAY" or "SAME-SEX" marriage, it's just MARRIAGE that involves either opposite-sex folks or Same-Sex folks........and yet you can't even post without freaking out.......lol!!!

I know that marriage among heterosexuals has a current divorce rate of just around 50%, second marriages end in divorce at roughly 65%, third marriages end in divorce at roughly 75% and those who have high divorce rates are usually Christians......imagine that!!!

I don't know about others, but I have been legally married one time in my life and I believe in both the sacrament of the institution of marriage and the vows I took.......at least HALF of those who are heterosexuals CAN'T say that!!!

Do you go out and preach to those heterosexual married couples who are swingers? or is it okay for them to trash your biblical version of marriage? I mean you do know that there are straight married couples who swap spouses, right?

PAUL SAID, "God is not the author of confusion," (I Corinthians 14:33), yet never has a book produced more confusion than the bible! There are hundreds of denominations and sects, all using the "inspired Scriptures" to prove their conflicting doctrines.
Why do trained theologians differ? Why do educated translators disagree over Greek and Hebrew meanings? Why all the confusion? Shouldn't a document that was "divinely inspired" by an omniscient and omnipotent deity be as clear as possible?

"If the trumpet give an uncertain sound," Paul wrote in I Corinthians 14:8, "who shall prepare himself to the battle? So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongue words easy to be understood, how shall it be known what is spoken? for ye shall speak into the air." Exactly! Paul should have practiced what he preached. For almost two millennia, the bible has been producing a most "uncertain sound."

The problem is not with human limitations, as some claim. The problem is the bible itself. People who are free of theological bias notice that the bible contains hundreds of discrepancies. Should it surprise us when such a literary and moral mish-mash, taken seriously, causes so much discord? Here is a brief sampling of biblical contradictions.
