The people behind Prop 8 kept insisting God was on their side.

Guess they lied about that as well as lying about most everything else.

They lost so many times yet still insist God is behind them?

Or perhaps God changed sides?

Nothing new about that. According to the Bible and fundamentalist Christians, God changes his mind like changing cheap suits. Makes new covenants with all sorts of strange people.

God was never with them from the get-go.

Well just like the folks who oppose abortion, this may still be an issue 40 years from now just like Roe vs Wade (1973). They still insist God is on their side. They can't show much proof behind that since they are relying on politicians and judges instead of God

I say I am a Christian because of very specific things; many of which are considered essential by most christian to have in order to really be a Christian. I love the Sermon on the Mount. And I also have two others as my Pillars of Faith so my moral compass has a stable base. THe parable of the Goats and the Sheep and the Parable of the Good Samaritan. To me those are the only moral absolutes other than the Ten Commandments.

I think Christ was a profound prophet of God. One of a select few that have come. I just don't think He's the only way to God.

Anyway it looks to me like God got fed up Himself and changed sides for a while! But they don't even see that Elvis has left the building.

Good stuff their bro. Speaking of Elvis, he and his crew used to love singing Gospel songs whenever they got the chance.

There are some beliefs that are essential to believe to be a Christian. And believing that Jesus Of Nazareth is the ONLY way to God is one of those essential things. If you do not believe that, then by definition, you are not a Christian.

Blow it out your pie hole. I'm not part of your church, or your cult. You are as bad as anyone else who claims to be God and the Final Judge. You're as bad as a Catholic Priest when you say things like this!

Thanks for showing that Lutherans like you are as bad as Mormons and Catholics and Jehovah's Witnesses! Your way or the hellway just like any anti-gay bigot.

That's not just a belief in Lutheranism.. It's a central tenet of Christianity. Of ANY denomination, i.e. Protestant, Orthodox, RCC, or other.

And those beliefs are not relevant to matters of civil law.
