Homosexuality and the Bible

Aug 15, 2011 | Posted by: Selecia Jones- JAX FL | Full story: www.smh.com.au

Given the ongoing debate about same-sex marriage, it is time I looked at the two Testaments to remind myself why belief is so hard for me to embrace.

Are you talking about President Obama or your response.

I simply quoted the definition of a friendship.

Snicker.

It has been overwhelmingly rejected by homosexuals as an actual practice in every country that allows it, and studies have shown that most such 'marriages' aren't even exclusive arrangements.
No homosexual relationship shares the reasons for government involvement in real marriage. No child is ever born as a direct result and no such relationship can provide a child with a father and mother. Homosexual 'marriage,' where legal, isn't even a basic building block of homosexual society, much less of society as a whole. There is no standardized format for homosexual 'marriages,' and no economically unequal genders are involved.
Why not forget about disenfranchising others in order for force your concocted, failed philosophy into law? Why not try a little live and let live?
There is no rational argument in favor of homosexual 'marriage.' Just calling those who oppose it 'bigots' is no rational argument!
Poor David. Still trying to deny those homosexual desires you have? How's that going?

As a taxpayer, I'm entitled to rights. At the moment, we do not have equality. We will have it, soon, and you'll still have the right to disagree.

David, I don't think it's an insult to say that someone is homosexual, anymore than saying that someone is left-handed is an insult. It is just the way god made you. How can that be bad? You should embrace the way god made you, not deny it.

Maybe you need to go back for that GED and learn what momentum means. A growing number of states have enacted constitutional amendments against having their citizens disenfranchised on this issue. Some passed with pluralities over 80%. The Supreme Court will soon uphold Prop 8 and DOMA.
Homosexual 'marriage' will one day just be an odd footnote on history.
You had no points worth refuting, dear. They were all the same BS that "others" have attempted to post before.

You have it backwards, darlin'. In the most recent election, 4 states voted to SUPPORT SSM. The momentum for SSM (support) continues to grow in our favor. You're simply too stubbord to face reality. Further, I wouldn't hold my breath on that Supreme Court theory you hold.

Doesn't matter, your back-woods views are irrelevant to my life.

<quoted text>The fact remains that a growing MAJORITY of states have constitutional amendments in place to prevent your ridiculous oxymoron from becoming law and your fellow homosexuals have OVERWHELMINGLY reject homosexual 'marriage' as an actual practice in EVERY country that permits it.
The fact remains that those amendments will ultimately be deemed unconstitutional and illegal.

As for the second statement in your run-on sentence, you're simply blowing smoke out your a$$. There may, in fact, be a few gay people who "reject" marriage, just as there are heterosexuals who reject marriage. Overwhelmingly, support and acceptance for SSM continues to increase (except for parts of Africa where fundamentalist Christian preachers are successfully teaching hate theology).

But here's the more important part, which you continually fail to recognize. When we do have marriage equality in the US, it has NO BEARING on your right to believe and practice your faith as you desire. You'll still have the option to to believe that the Bible condemns homosexuality. Nobody wants to take that away from you. You'll also still have the right to denigrate Christians (like myself) who don't happen to think that the Bible actually refers to homosexuality, or homosexual love as we know it in the clobber passages.

Gay couples will never fulfill the core root of marriage; a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

Gay couples will never bring the unique product of uniting diverse genders.

Gay couples will never procreate or bring the balance of a mother and father to the child.

The list goes on.

You can create a legal contract called marriage, but that will be all it is. Shallow and far short of the full spectrum of real marriage.

Fake, pretend, imposter and counterfeit don't do your Frankenstein creation justice. Unmarriage is more like it.

Get back to me when you can match the basic essence of marriage.

Smile.

Perhaps you should look up the definition of 'constraint'.
