There are bad apples in every political party. Gov. Beshear seems to be developing into a rotten one for sure. Call his office and let him know, he won't be getting your vote and you intend to spread the word. He's not doing KY any favors!!

Wouldn't restricting gays to one sexual partner through marriage reduce the spread of AIDS?

Probably. Restricting str8s to one sexual partner through marriage to reduce the spread of AIDS certainly has worked GREAT !:)

That is impossible. The average homosexual male has thousands of anal sex partners over the course of a lifetime.
What if they only had one?

Good post but don't forget about not wearing garments of mixed fabrics; it's an abomination. Or how about Deuteronomy 21-22.... Women who weren't virgins before marriage were stoned to death.
So called Christians like to thump their bible so long as what they are preaching has nothing to do with their lives. Why do they excessively preach about homosexuality and rarely mention many things considered sin on the bible?
Jesus didn't utter one word about homosexuality.
1. If you are a Christian, you HAVE to obey some OT laws and not others. What are timeless are the moral laws. What were for Jews only were the Old Testament purity codes (shellfish, etc.). All this changed because of Jesus. Humans had to be distinct and set apart to be in God's presence and worship him. This used to be through their dietary and other prescriptive codes; after Jesus, it was through Him. This is what Christ meant when he said "I have come not to abolish the law, but to fulfill it."

2. "Jesus didn't utter one word about homosexuality". This is an oft-repeated statement that falls apart the minute it is examined below the surface layer. This statement presupposes some things: One, that because it's not recorded in the Bible, Jesus didn't say it. Not a very logical assumption. Two, that the fact that Jesus isn't on record in Scripture on the issue of homosexuality means that he condones it. Quite a stretch, considering that the Bible Jesus taught and preached from *was* what we call the Old Testament. Three, that Jesus was silent on the issue of marriage and relationships. The opposite is true. When Jesus was asked about marriage, he quoted Genesis and referred to the sexual union between man and woman--"they shall become one flesh". It is clear that Jesus's idea of a right relationship between human beings involved a man and a woman. Fourth and finally, "Jesus didn't utter one word about homosexuality" presupposes that there is some importance or value placed on what Jesus said. That means, "Not surprised", that if Jesus IS on record on a particular issue, you must believe everyone should follow what he said, correct?

If they would all drown in a pool of their own blood then gay marriage would be irrelevant.

David and Jonathan had an intimate, personal friendship. It is only in today's hyper-sexualized culture that anyone tries to read anything sexual into it.
