Quit following a condemned fallen angel, Satan......and come to Jesus Christ for the remission of sins!
Please quit flooding the forum your off-topic Jesus prattle.

If you want to talk about Jesus in relation to the topic, more power to ya.
But we all know your belief that everybody who doesn't accept Jesus is going to hell, by now, and it has nothing to do with the topic.

You commit sin every time you pass judgement on another. Which is something we all do. You commit sin when you cast away a person who is gay rather than love them unconditionally.
The second greatest commandment given to us was to love one another.
Going strictly by your guidelines, shall I assume you are a child of Satan ?

The decision by SCOTUS will be out in June, the Court will be in recess in July.......and I believe that SCOTUS will do the right thing and toss DOMA and also Prop 8.......so, until then......I'll stand my by beliefs and await the ruling......and not your speculation!!!
Well, I hate to inform you of this, but there are just as many legal experts who disagree with you and who agree with me......so, that's not really a true judgment of how this will play out......but this is what I know..........Section 3 of DOMA has LOST in every court rulings from the lower courts and the Appeal's level......the same is true for the proponents of Prop 8.......they both have huge hills to climb to overcome the appeals rulings.....and then there is the Article 3 Standing question in both, which is a wild card situation......so, I'd rather not pay attention to a supposed lawyer who makes these interesting claims......and I'll wait to hear how Olson and Boies handle things.......I mean Ted Olson has over a 75% win record in front of SCOTUS......what's your win record in front of SCOTUS?
Judge Reinhardt doesn't have the greatest track record when it comes to appeals. In 1997 SCOTUS reversed seven opinions that Reinhardt has either written or been party to, all seven unanimously. Between 1994 and 2004 Reinhardt was party to a whopping 53 decisions reversed by the supreme court. In the last term, of 26 appeals of 9th Circuit court opinions, the Supreme court overturned 18, which is 70%. To make matters worse, Judge Reinhardt was on the panel for six cases and all six were reversed by SCOTUS. which, for those weak in basic math, is 100%. Reinhardt wrote the majority opinion in three of those cases and all three were unanimously overturned. Of the other three, one was overturned unaimously and two by a 5-4 conservative vote.

"When I try to count the votes in favor of same-sex marriage on the Supreme Court, I have trouble getting to one."
Constitutional law scholar Andrew Koppelman

“The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is the most overturned circuit in the country, and Judge Stephen Reinhardt, the author of today’s absurd ruling (Prop 8) is the most overturned federal judge in America. Today’s ruling is a perfect setup for this case to be taken by the US Supreme Court, where I am confident it will be reversed."
Constitutional scholar John Eastman

“If there is such a right(same sex marriage) it will have to be manufactured by the justices out of whole cloth."
Richard Posner of the Seventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals

Posner has been called "the world’s most distinguished legal scholar."

All are children of God.

But, according to you, NO ONE is a child of God.
Not possible.
Everyone sins at some point in their life, Laci, Christians and non-Christians.
No one is perfect.

uhoh, Laci,
You left out 1John 10 and 11:

10 This is what distinguishes the children of God from the children of the devil: whoever does not live uprightly and does not love his brother is not from God.

11 This is the message which you heard from the beginning, that we must love one another,

Laci, you do not love your brother.

There is one God.....the Father of creation. The devil is the god of this world. That being said.......God has children and Satan has children. They each have the characteristic of who they serve.

I believe that God will get the gospel to everyone that would accept it no matter where they are in the world. After all, He is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient.
The scriptures are clear though......Jesus Christ is the ONLY way into Heaven. You won't get in any other way.

The Word of God aka the Holy Bible teaches that most people will reject the narrow way of following Jesus and will follow Satan in the wide path to Hell.
Matthew 7:13-14
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
RR: "The Word of God aka the Holy Bible teaches that most people will reject the narrow way of following Jesus...."

NO. FALSE. Mathew 7:13-14 does NOT say "most people REJECT the narrow way.". It says, few people FIND it.

Furthermore, the passage is NOT about what you believe, a right or wrong way to believe, or correctly believing. It's not about believing at all.
Neither is the passage describing YOU.
"Narrow" doesn't refer to narrowly circumscribed beliefs.

confronting sin is not wrong and I will not allow you to bully me into backing down, from what I know is wrong! These are the Christian threads, if you don't want to read my post by all means scroll right on by. Just know this until I decide to leave here, I will be calling SIN-SIN!

Pruning allows the worthless branches to be cut off so that the REAL branches can have the proper nutrition to fulfill their purpose. Why let play "Christians" continue to mock the gospel with their "God is nothing but love love love, don't share the gospel, sin is okay, Jesus was just a prophet, the bible isn't literal, all ways to Heaven, Satan is our friend" blah blah blah?

Rejecting Jesus Christ will land a person in their eternal home in Hell when they perish.
