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.

Anal sex is inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning.

Of that, Paul was right.
Right?

I'm simply pointing out the extreme theological position of a dying minority that the bulk of historical Christianity considers heresy. I have no desire to waste time arguing faith with a dishonest faithless heretic.
Your depravity is further exposed by the silly attempt of an obviously studied person to negate the often posted facts of medical science with his personal claim of sphincter health.
It is sad to see the waste of a intelligent mind fatally distorted by denial. It would be interesting to see the paradigm shift if you accepted the fact that homosexuality is a sexual defect.
Smile.
My testimony (not hearsay) carries the same weight as that of those to whom you merely allude (lack of links to testimony is noted). That my testimony is contradictory eliminates an absolutist stance on your part.

Eat it.

By the way, Argumentum ad populum is a fallacy.

" ... the way is narrow and few find it ... " would tend to deflate your ad populum argument.

A time will come when people will not listen to accurate teachings. Instead, they will follow their own desires and surround themselves with teachers who tell them what they want to hear.

YOU are a fulfillment of that prophesy.

Even if Saul were an acceptable source, the same could be asserted regarding your position and that of your "majority".

Is there anything SO idiosyncratic as the multiplicity of sects and hired "ministers" of different flavors found in Nicene Xiandom? They don't "like" what one of their hirelings says, they simply fire him and go shopping for another that suits their appetites.

" ... will the son of man find any who believe when he returns ... "

You really should try to be consistent. Is my sect and it's teachings "dying", or expanding to encompass all humanity as fulfillment of some Saulian "prophecy"?

Saul was speaking of himself and his own followers, who grew to swamp out and shout down the original message and community of Yeshua, because his essentially hellenic teachings appealed more to the pagan expectations of their listeners.

Saulian Xiandom is way, way beyond 31 Flavors.

"Wait what?"
You are trying to make your ignorance of history into a talking point?
Examine the history of the Suffragette movement for insight into the status of women prior to the vote.
Haven't you ever wondered about the historical underpinnings of some of the customs in the various American forms of wedding ceremony? For example, haven't you ever wondered about the odd custom of "giving away the bride"? Check into terms like "dower", "dowry", "endow" and "bride price". Spend a little time on "marriage contract".
Here are some easy and readily available links to get you started:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chattel_marriage
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coverture
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marital_power
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dower
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dowry
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bride_price
Until Women's Suffrage was passed here is the U.S., women could not enter into contracts, in some places could not own real property or go into business, did not have specific rights to her own children, or even give consent to her own marriage without her father's permission regardless of her age.
I'm fully aware of the history. I keep forgetting how ancient you are however.

Those practiced are long gone here. Why stay bitter about them? In fact, there is clear evidence the pendulum for women has swung too far the other way.

What is not surprising is that you shift from one distorted view of a French practice to another.

Smile.

Your personal claims carry no weight against medical professionals.

Anal sex is inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning.

It wasn't Argumentum ad populum, it was Argumentum ad theologum.

You sound angry...

Your 'sect' has so diluted the Scriptures, that anything goes. Authentic Christianity stands united on the essentials.

The basic essence of marriage is a cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior. A D/S couple, or infertility issue doesn't violate mating behavior. A ss couple does.
I've never said abusive sex is a reason to deny marriage. I've simply pointed out that for gays, anal sex is a violent imitation of natural, normal sex, one of the symptoms of a sexual defect.
Smile.
So, you agree that anal sex is irrelevant in this discussion. Thanks for finally pointing that out. Or, for pointing out that people who engage in anal sex are sexually defective.

Are heterosexual couples who engage in anal sex sexually defective?

Should celibate homosexual couples be allowed to marry?

Why should people who will not, or cannot, reproduce be allowed to marry?

But, you agree that there is no legally valid justification for prohibiting same-sex marriage. Thanks.

The law has no justification to equate SS couples to marriage
