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.

Making the case that same sex marriage is on par with inter-racial marriage is an invalid comparison. Race is an inborn trait while homosexuality has never been proven to be. It is sexual behavior based on choice while race is not. You can find many former homosexuals but never never a former African-American. Homosexuality is not an identity or a class. It is a behavior.
LOL. Your whole post was stupid-think!

Both race and sexual orientation are conditions of birth. You can't choose not to be gay, stupid.

Some more 'fun facts':
During the late 1950s to early 1990s, several paedophile membership organisations advocated lowering or abolishing age of consent laws[44][45][46][47] to legalize sexual activities involving an adult and a child. As one of their arguments to lower or abolish the age of consent, members of paedophile advocacy groups promoted their belief that children are psychologically capable of consenting to sexual interactions with adults,[48] and they often portrayed themselves as fighting for the right of children to engage in what the activists consider to be consensual sex with adults.

Of course homosexuality is a choice. Its a choice against the body and if it was not a choice there would not be be ex-homosexuals.

It already has. Satan's purpose for homosexuality is to disrupt and divide.
How can an adult believe Satan exists?

Of course there are ex-gays. People can change their sexual orientation. There are just to many cases to ignore.

Gay people say it is, that's the most important proof there can be.
Think they are wrong? Choose to be gay.

Sexual orientation isn't behavior based. You can be straight and still be a virgin.

You mean former homosexuals like Marcus Bachmann? Pfft...

Sorry Jeff, but ones sexual orientation is as innate as one's eye color.......we know that one's sexual orientation is complex and includes genetics(not a GENE), biology, hormones and environmental factors.......we also know that Pet-scans have been known to show a Gay man's brain is similar to a Heterosexual female's brain and the same is true for a Lesbian and heterosexual male.

Now, you are certainly free to believe what you want......but the fact remains, that some folks are Gay, some are Lesbian, some are Bisexual and some are straight......but the one thing we know.....IT'S NOT A PHYSICAL CHOICE.........you can't be Gay anymore than I could be straight!!!

This ought to be entertaining.

Um dear, even if your prayer that no one is born to be homosexual came true, marrying outside one's own race is very much a choice.
Jeff wrote:

Hon, while you don't get to choose your own race, you do get to choose the race of your sexual partners, or didn't you stupid-think of that?

You just keep believing that and the stupid-think crown is yours, buttercup.

Homosexual sexual practices cannot be healthy. There is just no way getting around this. Of course we should be discriminating against same sex "marriage" or any other kind of crackpot configuration of marriage beyond a man and a woman. The reasons are that only a marriage between a man and a woman can procreate naturally and is the very best way to raise children. Marriage should be based on opposite genders and not on what a person does for a living.
I hope you and your partner don't get sick. But you are the exception to the rule and not the norm. Good laws are not based on exceptions but on what is best. Same sex marriage is not the best.
I'm not against same marriage just because its unhealthy but that its unnatural and is not the best way to raise children. Children need traditional parents i.e. male-female to be raised properly. Same sex relationships cannot achieve this.
so, you DO support banning heterosexual couples from marrying if they engage in anal sex, as well as banning single parenthood (not the gold standard), and any marriages that won't result in children. Thanks for clearing that up. And, since you say heterosexual sex is not safe because of potentially lethal conditions in pregnancy, you're also against marriages that would result in children. So, you're against all marriages. You really need to think about the logical ramifications of the things you say. We do.

We're not forcing you to say the dumb shit you say. That's entirely voluntary on your part. You're the one who said anal sex causes HIV. You're the one who thinks "not guilty" and "innocent" mean the same thing. And, you offer up the following gems:

Marrying someone outside your race is not compulsory nor unavoidable. It's voluntary 100% of the time. What was wrong with laws that forbade inter-racial marriage?

Tattoos are a violation of the temple of God, as are cigarettes. You want to ban smokers and inkers from marrying? Thus far, your arguments have been either religious or against all marriage. When you find a legitimate legal argument against same-sex marriage, you let us know.
