Good grief, two people who couldn't be bothered enough to read the one sentence that accompanied the headline, let alone the actual story. Is there lead in Albuquerque's water supply or what?

America sweetie, you really should have paid better attention in school. It isn't our fault that your state's Constitution rejects your bigotry.

Hon, I realize that was the best comeback you could come up with. I'm just wondering why you would want me to know that was the best comeback you could come up with?

it is just one person trying to pretend he has a quorum. The facts or news stories are not relevant to him. He creates his own phony polls just to talk to himself in public.

It's one person acting on the authority granted to them by the state constitution, cutting through all the bullsh*t and finally answering a question that y'all have been actively ruminating on for the last few years. What part of:
"Marriage is civil contract requiring consent of parties.

Marriage is contemplated by the law as a civil contract, for which the consent of the contracting parties, capable in law of contracting, is essential.," actually tells us that we can't marry someone of our same sex?

As long as a couple meet the age and consanguinity requirements, what is exactly the problem?

It's a neat thing about our system of government. We empower Judges to exactly what he did, lay down the law.

The people of New Mexico have simply been pretending that couples of the same sex couldn't go down to the clerk's office, pick up a license and walk down the aisle to whatever after, since the law was written the way it does. Unless it's been tinkered with at some point, it might have been since 1876. I kinda really doubt how it is written now is the original version and from what I read in looking that up for y'all, I'd bet it's at least since 1978.

no... I'm talking about the poster, our infamous hate-spreading phony pollster who told you go to San Francisco, not the county clerk.

The City is great, but it looks like our state is moving faster on this front.

Oh, Melvin Marina Pierre. He's funny. Strictly amateur in the trolling department. This should all be over but the whining by the end of next month when same sex marriages come to the rest of the counties in the state.

Jesus himself made it very clear what marriage is all about, He says, "Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said,‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’ So then, they are no longer two but one flesh." Matthew 19: 4b-6a. Then Saint Paul makes it unmistakable as to what marriage is as well. He says in 1 Corinthians 7: 2b-5 "…let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband. Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband. The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control." It sure doesn’t sound like God ever intended for any other combination to be together other than a man and a woman!

I’m sure that people before the flood rationalized their evil behavior also. God does not change though, and neither does Scripture on this important subject of human sexuality. Some say, "I was born this way I can’t change." Yes, we are all born with a sin nature, but we can change with God’s help. Is there hope for homosexuals? The good news is, yes, there is hope in Christ! Many are saved now, and happily married to the opposite sex, even though they lived in sin before. God does forgive, He hates the sin of homosexuality, but He loves the sinner. Those that teach that God hates homosexuals are missing the point. God hates the sin, but He loves the sinner. This sin is bad, but so is every sin. A person that holds onto their sin until they die will be dragged down to hell by that sin. Those that repent and give up the sin of homosexuality will be saved.

If you want help, you will need to first admit you need help. Tell God you are sick and tired of your sin of homosexuality. Tell Him that you believe Jesus died for your sin, and you want Him to save you. "For with the heart one believes to righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made to salvation. For the Scripture says,‘Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.’" Romans 10: 10-11. All the Scripture references are taken from the New King James Bible.

Look at what God says about this question, "Is homosexuality a choice?" "For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality…" (Romans 1:26-29a)

As time goes on there will be more and more people who feel that there is nothing wrong with the homosexual life-style. It will become more acceptable to them. They will even make laws that will try to say that people who disagree with them are breaking "hate laws." We see this happening already in several countries. Christians, who teach what the Bible teaches, that is that homosexuality is wrong, will be made fun of and persecuted.

"For when they speak great swelling words of emptiness, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through lewdness, the ones who have actually escaped from those who live in error. While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage. For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning. For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them. But it has happened to them according to the true proverb:'A dog returns to his own vomit,' and 'a sow, having washed, to her wallowing in the mire'" (2 Peter 2: 1-22).

Obviously, homosexual "pastors" know some of the Word of God, or else they would not have achieved their positions. They are deceivers, and we are not to be deceived by them! We are to come out of any church that would put a practicing homosexual into leadership, "Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s." (1 Corinthians 6:18-20)

Notice that I said we are to leave a church where a practicing homosexual is put into leadership. I say this because the Bible is clear that some Christians had participated in homosexual dalliances before being saved; but once saved, Christians will have nothing to do with that old way of life, and will warn others against it! "And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God," according to 1 Corinthians 6:11.(All the verses in this article are quoted from the New King James Version of the Bible.) For more information about homosexuality, look at the article, "Homosexuality and the Bible."

If that is really what you want to pray that Jesus really feels about the marriage of same sex couples in His name, you have every right to do so, but we have every right to not to join in that prayer with you. What you are failing to grasp in your absolute certitude that you know what God is telling us, other folk have heard differently. God decides who gets His Christian message right, not His Christians. It simply does not matter how much evidence that your version of God just doesn't like us, His approval isn't necessary. There are plenty of other versions who are more than happy to offer His blessing.

In country of Huzzah, religion is order of day, ja?

But in America, Huzzah must lay aside silly book of fantasy, and take up book of science, fact and law, must Huzzah. Only then can he be welcomed and bestowed the title he so covets: American.

Until then, shuffle aimlessly from discussions to discussion must Huzzah, and be shunned and ridiculed be he.
