You are such a DOLT!
I have more gay and lesbian friends with children that straight ones. Gay people CAN AND DO have children.

Marriage is a CIVIL institution. Religion does not allow ATHIEST to marry? Really!!!?
Sacrament of marriage has been withheld from me but it is not any longer. I will marry next year in a STATE that also allows it.
Spin, Cry, Pout, Crap your pants....IT WILL NOT CHANGE THE FACTS!
PROUD LESBIAN EPISCOPALIAN!!!
Nicely said, your sure nailed KiMerdes hide to the wall!

That is an extremely good point about where gay people come from.

KiMare creates what he has a problem with so he can bitch and complain about it. How many of KiMerde's children are gay? Is the reason he is here violating biblical commands because he can't talk to his children the way he would like to so instead he finds gay discussions to vent the rage he would like to suffer on his own children?

Jesus gave all alternatives to marriage in answer to the disciples' comments. Your answer does not fit.
LOL!!!.... No. Sorry.

His (Matthew 19) answer was in response to a question about divorce from Pharisees who intended to make Him answer into a "catch-22."

Their question, which He obviously understood better than they did, was about the supremacy and ultimate Authority of the Law of Moses.

How did He set them straight?

He showed the discrepancy between the Law of Moses and the account of the union of Adam and Eve, which union He explained to be the RESULT of the natural, God-given, heterosexual union.

*****

What YOU are doing is putting words that are NOT written into the reported account in scripture.

YOUR opinion. YOUR interpretation of what you wish He had said.

*****

Furthermore, you are trying to do exactly what those Pharisees were trying to do, which is to establish the ultimate Authority of scripture, citing Mosaic Law in scripture as the source of your grounds, while ignoring the God-given, natural love-based pair-bonding of which the non-heterosexual couple is capable!

But, Jesus showed them that this Mosaic source of Authority was open to compromise and modification to suit necessity - as modified by Moses himself!

So, why does MY answer not fit? It doesn't fit YOUR view of things because YOU don't want it to fit.

But, unfortunately for YOUR view,.....

It does fit.

You are being offered, by the very Holy Spirit of Truth and Life that you have sought to rely on all of your Christian life, the understanding of how to change your institution-tradition-based bigoted and hypocritical views on this subject.

Sit up and take notice.

Heterosexual couples make gay babies.

If anything should be illegal it is for people of the same religion getting married. If you were a Christian KiMerde, which you are not as I have proven countless times in here, you should not be able to marry another Christian as that is abominable. You should only be allowed to marry a Muslim, a Jew or maybe a Buddhist, but never another Christian, my stomach just turns at the very thought.

Again, you are wrong. The same science applies to reproductive cells from males.
I have never known KiMare to be right about anything. If he writes something just assume it is wrong if you do not have time to research and prove he is wrong. Although it is nice when research is provided to prove he is wrong, just like I quote the Bible to prove he is wrong and not a real and true Christian.

Your opinions are wholly unconvincing. It would be ethical in the extreme to do so. Old fossils like yourself do not replace brain cells fast enough to keep up with us younger guys and gals.

Absolutely KiMare is completely unnecessary. He is part of an abomination and actively participates in a crime against humanity.

All we can do is wait for the old fossil to die.

KiMerde's mental disabilities do not allow for him sitting up and taking notice of any thing new. He is stuck in a 1950's sit com and there he will remain until he does the world a favor and dies.

Thank you very much Rev. Ken. You nailed this whole issue by establishing that of a "gift of companionship"
Dear Akopen,

You are very welcome.

You understand this, Akopen, because you recognize this within yourself.

When a truly Self-aware person finds loving Trust in a complimentary mate, with true commitment, the freedom of self-discovery including intimacy, and the link to God through this gift ... this person, this couple understands the might of their fortune.

One thing is left to do. That is to seek and receive moral and spiritual acceptance of their union by family, friends, their surrounding society both socially and civilly, and, if they are open to it, the Sacrament of Marriage.

Jesus had ever opportunity to specifically address homosexuality. He did. Matthew 19.
You can twist and twirl any way you want, the Bible condemns abusive anal sex, and any sex outside of marriage between a man and woman.
Hey, Kimare!

Does the Bible say Mary had sex with God, outside of Marriage?

I just used them on your post #20604, proving that you are occasionally mistaken ... and forgiven.

She would not have been a virgin then, right?

Of course virgin birth is not possible.

Until 1943 that was.

Why would the bible have anything sensible to say about homosexuality ? It doesn't have anything sensible to say about anything else.

It notes that anal sex is inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning.

So do doctors.

How come you have to outsmart yourself, rather than answer a simple question?
