LOL!!!....

Maybe not in your Church.

But, there sure as heck is in mine. And they do every bit as good a job in the Ministry and Sacraments as the men do.

As for marrying same-sex couples, we will get there pretty soon and it will be a righteous accommodation.

My SS marriage license says "marriage". It doesn't get any more real than that. Remember, hon, "words define reality".

Sucks to be you.

Doesn't get any more real than a piece of paper?

That sucks honey!

A pointless duplication will never equate to the union of diverse genders.

That piece of paper, and my relationship, prove that my union is no different than yours. At any rate, when you and the missus are bumping uglies, there are two vaginas present. That doesn't sound nearly as diverse a you'd have is believe.

Getting to know the same gender is 'no different' than getting to know the opposite gender and becoming one?

The union of Mars and Venus is the same as the collision of Uranus and Uranus?

Here is the disappointing reality of all this gay twirl.

A ss couple will only ever be only a duplicated HALF of marriage.

Nothing can change that.

You can't force people to deny that reality.

A law or a piece of paper cannot change it.

The result can ONLY be another fruitless gay encounter.

Your marriage can only be a poly marriage, then, because you insist that marriage must be one penis, one vagina.

No matter, you're the only person on Topix trolling your schtick and your also the only person buying your schtick. oh wait, "Adam" backs you up! yeah, I'd be thrilled about that.

This just in, we're still married. Two of the same gender, but we're married.

Congratulations, DM!

Many couples like yourselves have waited a long time for the opportunity to live in the open as a married couple. It is TRULY a blessing for you both.

May God Bless you and keep you.

Nah.

These people don't belong to you and you presently have nothing of any value or consequence to say to them or about them to anyone else.

Your bitterness and bigotry is a worthless, practiced mentality.

These couples cause you no problem of any sort. In fact, their joining and the legitimization of their unions is an improvement within the integrity of our culture and an affirmation of the rights of the individual within our Constitutional Republic.

KiMare, as old as you are and as experienced as you ought to be, you have yet a lot to learn about yourself and your fellow Humans.

Belong to me? I have nothing to say to anyone?

That starts your arrogant denial. A pointless comment and an untruth followed by false judgment.

A perfect picture of the blind leading the blind combined with a Pharisee perverting followers to evil.

Your post succinctly restates the matter of the thread topic. It is not at all as others have said: A statement of how the Bible irrefutably condemns all homosexuality.
Very few people ever get taught the true purpose of the Bible. That includes most priests, pastors, ministers and preachers. And then, having been insufficiently informed, those who incorrectly teach it, encourage their followers to become rabid dogs in search of percieved Hell-bent cause and effect. The fundamentalist/literalist way of seeing is a self-fulfilling prophesy.
Rabbis, on the other hand, because they are steeped in Tradition, are more likely to get it. Still, because of an orthodoxy that goes hand in hand with Tradition, they are also vulnerable to acceptance into a very bigoted, self-righteous fraternity. Even so, they still have their Jewish mothers to keep them from getting to high on the rocking horse. Just ask Jesus about where the authority really rests.
Few want to see the evidence because most want something concrete and established that they can point to; something that they can see that others also respect as authority; Something that one can hang their hat on. They see the "incontrovertible authority and truth" vested in the "Holy Spirit inspired" Bible as a pillar of established stability in a world of political and social and financial constructs that seemingly have no foundation.
When the Bible, and other "inspired" scripture, is afforded such status, it is easy for the fearful to use it as an axe against the person who engages in any perceived misbehavior.
When you take that source of authority away from them, Alan, by revealing its inconsistencies,...
you take away their most precious safe harbor and set them adrift in an often violent sea with no land in sight.
Rev. Ken
Thank you for your very kind reply. You really hit the nail on its head saying that I take away their most precious safe harbor etc. It is what has to be done because as long as they look to the Bible to tell them about homosexuality the bigotry will continue.

Do we look to the Bible to tell us about slavery? Do we look to the Bible to tell us about the rights of women? Do we look to the Bible for dietary advice? No of course not.

Neither of us is sterile. And, unlike you, we are of single genders.

We have a law. We have a certificate. we have a relationship. we have a marriage.

you on the other hand, have Jack Schitt.
