Since the Scripture is the only place we know where God speaks about marriage where did He say anything about same sex marriage? Book, chapter and verse please.
Seeing as your book doesn't run our Government.....it's irrelevant!!!

It's not hard to figure at all. Homosexuality was vastly misunderstood for a long time. Today people have a lot more information (if they want it) and that has changed things. That's a good thing.
Things like pedophilia and bestiality will always be wrong because they necessarily create a victim by their existence.
Gay marriage does not. See how easy that was? It's called "thinking."
Homosexuality in most cultures wasn't misunderstood. it was well understood. Most cultures accepted many forms of sexuality as normal, including homosexual, prostitution, animal and child sex. You should Google ancient cities like Pompeii, just a single city of many in an ancient modern society that prove that true.
We are where the citizens of Pompeii once were before further evolvement of their social norms.
Americans only accepted opposite sex relationships as legal. Everything else was done behind closed door as those acts were usually illegal.
Today we have a state where prostitution is legal. Homosexual relations are legal. And you think it will stop there? Not if history repeats itself as it has done for thousands of years.

Add same sex marriage to the equation and the divorce rate goes down, stupid.
There is no such thing as same sex "marriage". The Holy Bible is crystal clear that marriage is between a MAN and a WOMAN. This is how God created it to be.

The divorce rate is so high because so many of the so-called modern "Christian" churches and pastors care more about money than what's right and wrong. They are afraid to stand up for God's Holy Word because it might make someone mad (boo hoo hoo) so they water down the gospel. So the "Christian" church copies and follows the ways of the world.......

Christians are to be separate from the world!!!!!(2 Corinthians 6:17)

"debate" sweetums, is NOT parroting 'scripture'..NOR is it pontification, which is all you do!

I strongly agree! And that goes with EVERY religion. NONE of them are "poor".. it all about how much power and money they can amass! I see 'poor' churches where the pastor runs around in a Hummer (and these are economically disadvantaged folks!)

I believe 100% in the Word of God. What else should I believe........the idiotic lies from Satanic???? No thanks, I'll stick with the inspired, inerrant, infallible Word of the living God. I think the Creator knows more than the creation, lol.

What makes you think God meant for same sex marriage? What divine mandate do you have that tells us He meant for same sex marriage?
marriage is a contract between two adults.

God is patient and doesn't want any of us to perish......in fact, us Christians were at one time just like you unbelievers before we got saved. I mocked and hated Christians (the real ones that shared the gospel) before I got saved.

"The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." 2 Peter 3:9

British lawmakers on Tuesday voted overwhelmingly in favor of a bill to legalize same-sex marriage championed by Prime Minister David Cameron, despite strong opposition from within his Conservative Party.

In a first House of Commons vote, lawmakers voted 400 to 175 in support of the legislation.

You don't have any proof that your Buybull is "the word of God." Why do you believe things you can't prove?

Nonsense. It just adds the problem.
No, this wasn't up for debate. Massachusetts has one of the lowest divorce rates in the country, if not the lowest.

Educate yourself, dummy.
