Will Gay Marriage Pit Church Against Church?

Apr 27, 2009 | Posted by: SongBookz | Full story: news.yahoo.com

The trouble they see is not just an America where general support for gay marriage will have driven a wedge between churches and the world, but between churches themselves.

It is a pretend kind of thing even if the law approves of it. Help me out. How is it possible for a man to be a wife? How is it possible for a man to be a mommy?
BTW- there is no such thing as "safe sex". Just look at the stats on STD's and abortions and tell me how safe this is. There is always going to be these problems and there will never be a total cure. Even now those who are lucky enough to afford these drugs are not even close to being 100% healthy.
Only a simpleton would think that marriage is only for having children. If that were true, we wouldn't allow senior citizens to get married either because they couldn't have children.

But one way for a man to be a mommy is for him to adopt a child. Many women have had to do so in order to be mommies. And homosexuals don't have abortions.

We do have a couple of reasons here for keeping abortions legal.

did you know the vulgar word you uttered has a macabre history?

At one time when burning dignitaries alive mercy would be shown to the dignitaries by getting the fire hotter by throwing a few gay people on the fire to hasten the death of the dignitary. This is where the word "faggot" became associated with gay people.

And you might want think about the reality that homophobes such as yourself are actually repressed homosexuals. You need to learn to accept yourself and how you were born.

Normal heterosexual people are not obsessed with expressing hatred towards gay people as they recognize that "LOVE thy neighbor" is meant to be taken literally!

You are projecting your inner self loathing onto others to avoid dealing with your own problem!

Get help!

I thought it had something to do with the fact that was what cigarettes were called in England. It had something to do with how gay men use to light them as a signal they wanted to met or something like that.

Why bother to post on a thread about religion and churches? You certainly aren't a believer, and what other folks believe about God can't interest you.

Wouldn't just about any other topic be a better fit?

Marriage has always been between a man and a woman. Its primary function is to create new human beings and raise them. Same sex couples cannot do this naturally.
No man can ever be a mommy nor a woman be a daddy. That is impossible.

Normal heterosexual people knows that Homosexuality is not normal, it's perverted and nasty. I can think of a few Fa$$ots I like to see thrown in the fire. Maybe they should go back to that practice. LMFAO By the way, thanks for the history lesson.
thanks for confirming my observation homophobe. Your hate is unbelievable. It doesn't bother me, but it is rotting your brain.

Once again I urge you to get help before your rage gives you a stroke!

You might want to try to return that record to the store. It's broken.

Also, research the origins of marriage, because you're wrong, as usual.

You don't have the basic knowledge required for this discussion.

No couples are are required to procreate "naturally." Therefore your argument is negated. Yet you keep repeating it as if it is new.

Procreation is actually 100% irrelevant to marriage as it stands in America today.

Please list the states where heterosexual couples are required to procreate in order to legally marry.

Then, prove that straight couples who raise children not related to BOTH parents are banned from marrying.

If you can do that, then you can apply the same argument against gay folks. If not, you'll need to try again.

Before I do that show where a same sex couple can procreate naturally on their own without any outside help. Next, demonstrate how a man can be a mommy and a woman can be a daddy.
If you can do that then we can discuss whether there really is such a thing as a "same sex" marriage.

Of course the Bible addresses the issue of homosexuality directly in a number of places and in every instance it is condemned. It is a serious sin to engage in.
Even nature is against the practice of homosexuality. Man is not designed to have same sex and the consequences for those who engage in it is deadly. So why do it?
Of course the Bible agrees with your choice of interpretations of it, I wouldn't expect you to believe otherwise. And if that is the choice you want to stand in front of even your choice of versions of God with, more power to you. But as far as convincing me that you have made the correct choice of interpretations of God's message to his lesbian and gay children, not so much.

PS: You seem to know as little about nature as you do about what the Bible actually says. Nature is actually quite cool with the homosexual sexual and even homosexual attraction, you are surrounded by it and always have been. You might want to avoid discussions about that too.

The majority of scholars etc understand that the Bible is against the practice of homosexuality. Its those that want to justify homosexual practices that pervert the Bible to support it.
If homosexuality is natural then why are the sexual organs of men not designed for it? If its natural, then why is it so deadly to those who engage in it?

Just because someone has a desire for something does not mean its right or healthy. We know this is the case for many things including the practice of same sex sexual practices.
