Which again, just for the sake of clarification, means the same thing as marriage in all practical aspects. They literally took the existing marriage statute and added the words "or civil union."

I am fine with a vote in every state...
which is what we are gonna have post Prop 8 scotus review...
how'd it go in your state?
It is possible, if the scotus rules in that way, that they will state you can't have the exact same thing and call it something else. Therefore Civil Union states wherein the civil union is the same as marriage will be forced to call it marriage (or I suppose do away with it altogether, which would be pretty difficult considering it would be taking rights away from existing couples.)

Oh get a life you attention whore. It can be proven by the post Native saved of yours you stalked her on and off line with her mother's obituary photo. Before you accuse someone of not being Christ like take a look within. When does Christ act anything like you? You are a phoney I am Servant and you are not dealing with Native now, but someone who cares and loves her. You want to play your games on here, but your game will bite you in the ass if you continue to stalk Native. It won't be Native that exposes you to your community, but other caring Christians who know what you did to her.
<quoted text>
So admitting you still are stalking.

Wow, it didn't take much for someone to drop their fake "holier than thou" attitude and start calling people scum and telling them to go play in traffic.
Maybe the Holy Spirit was on break when all that happened.
LOL.. thats our own "native".. oh, she's a real piece of work! You should remember her by that nic.. she loves to play the 'holier than thou' in the GLBT threads as long as she can spread the nastiest hate imaginable.. all in the name of her 'religious beliefs'. She also is a mental case BTW and a consummate liar.

find it ironic that the "Mormon supporting the gay community" chooses to ignore the amicus brief her cult just filed along with the reasons behind it and focus her "sadness on me.
As a member, please explain why ur quorum wants to make their bigotry even more official than it already is..u do realize the "softer stance" website is there to hoodwink sheep like u, right? They are still the same old homophobes they've always been.
NoMo.. give her a break.. she did NOT write the brief nor did she have any power to do anything about it. Please do not attack those within these denominations that are actually supportive and trying what they CAN do to change minds and or influences..
I think you owe her an apology.. Now if you want to attack rabid Mormons (like their elders), I'm right there with ya. Just like I would for ANY religion and their rabid hateful BS beliefs.

No, they won't "always lack." That's a stupid and baseless assertion.
I don't think President Obama is lacking so much. Neither am I.
There are no guarantees in life.
No matter what kind of family you came from, you are lacking - so what caused that? Are you going to blame it on your parents?
I'm just pointing out another flaw in same sex marriage. Its built into the system that a child will always lack either a mom or a dad. This is not a good thing for a child. Agreed?

Wrong, Jonathan and David had no romantic love for one another. Nor
did Noami and Ruth. It is the homosexual community who twisted these stories for their gay agenda. No where does it say in the Bible they were lovers. God abhors homosexuality and he will not be mocked by your lies.

Are you an idiot or what? Do you have a comprehension problem? I asked you 2 times now are you autistic like your son? Autism is found in one of the parent's so is it you or his mother that has autism?
Leave the diagnosing to professionals. Or at least people who have some clue as to the facts regarding autism. Many people are diagnosed without any family of it.

Weeping is not the sin the sin is the idols being worshiped. Homosexuality is a perverted sex act and God says it will always be an abomination. No male temple prostitution going on in Romans 1. Liam, you are clueless of the Bible and you show just how ignorant you are.
Romans 1
26 That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. 27 And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved.
<quoted text>
Oh, and it looked like you might have started making progress. But don't be discouraged: you will eventually learn this! Here it is again, since you didn't quite seem to get it the first time. Read carefully, and ask an adult to help you with any of the words you don't understand...
Liam R wrote:
VERY good! You have taken the first step in learning to read the Bible for comprehension. Congratulations!
And EXACTLY like weeping is only a sin when it is done as part of the worship of a foreign God, so too is it with homosexuality. Leviticus uses the same word <tow'evah> which means "abomination BECAUSE it is connected with foreign worship" to describe the act of a man having sex with a (male) temple prostitute as Ezekiel does to describe weeping.
Now, read that again, very carefully. Is weeping a sin? Yes, but only when it is done as part of the worship of Tammuz - a foreign God. And in EXACTLY the same way, homosexuality is only a sin if it is part of the worship of a foreign God.
In the case of the children of Israel, their most likely contact with this practice would have been the qadesh of the Goddess Asherah. Both qadesh and Asherah are specifically mentioned in the Bible. Seems that the children of Israel rather LIKED the Goddess Asherah, and kept turning back to Her worship every chance they got. Poles, a symbol of Her worship, were constantly being erected on the high places. And around those poles there would have been fertility rituals involving temple prostitutes, both male (the qadesh) and female (the qedeshah).
As usual, you fail to take the entire context into account when you read the Bible. Leviticus 18 mentions the practice of a man (ish) laying with mankind (zakhar) as with a woman, and calls it tow'evah. Well, ish is a general term for man, that much is straight forward. AS you should already have learned, tow'evah is a term for abomination BECAUSE something is part of the worship of a foreign deity. Now let us look at the word <zakhar> which is a term that refers to a sanctified male. It does not mean "priest" specifically, because a male animal is a zakhar, even if that male animal is a bull, sanctified as a sacrifice to Poseidon.
So, a man is not to engage in an act that is part of the worship of a foreign Deity with a holy male. Looking at the whole of Lev 18, we see that the children of Israel are being warned against a lot of things that they are not to do for the simple reason that their neighbors do them. Lev 18:22 is no different. Men, do not have sex with a (male) temple prostitute as part of the fertility rituals of Asherah.

Liam,
Does not matter what science says. God has the final say over science since he is the one who says male and female.
Ah, but science teaches us what the REAL world is all about. If science contradicts the Bible, then we know that that part of the Bible was written by mere men with all of their foibles. That is why we don't think that the world is flat, in spite of what the Bible says...

Another lie of yours. David and Jonathan were never married and if you read it right you would see David left Jonathan and continued on his journey.
Did David have any choice? No, he HAD to leave. That does not change the fact that they were married, it just makes the whole tale a tragedy, since Johnathan was killed before the lovers could have a happy reunion.

Hmm, maybe you believe their pitiful denials of reality, but that still does not make your claim truth. The fact is that NO ONE has ever changed their sexual orientation. At the absolute BEST (as it were) a person can learn to suppress a part of their very being out of guilt and shame and pretend to be something that they are not. But pushing people to do that is EVIL.
