Joe sweetie, no place of worship, nor cleric therein, can be forced to perform any marriage which does not meet their faith's requirements for one, not even for opposite sex couples.
Do you call Joe 'sweetie' because you love and respect him?

I do love him as I love all of my fellow human beings. I hate no one. I respect his right to his opinion, I don't respect his opinion. Joe gets the joke. He knows we're taking turns writing to one another on the walls of the internet equivalent of one of your not so finer truck stop restrooms.

No doubt Joe gets it, he has a sense of humor.

I just felt you were over using it and it kind of lost it's humor and felt a bit antagonistic.

It made me wonder...

Sodomy is not legal in the United States. If oral sex, or anal penetration, is observed in public, and if the police are called, and if the police observe the acts of sodomy, the perpetrators will go to jail.
Try to get it right so as not to embarrass yourself.
Anybody gay or straight having any kind of sex in public can be arrested! But sodomy is NOT illegal any longer if done in the privacy of one's own home! Also,34% of us heterosexuals also practice anal sex! Glad I could help!

That this country is NOT a theocracy but is in fact a SECULAR nation! Who cares what your bible says,it has absolutely nothing to do with me! If you wish to force your religious beliefs on others might I suggest you move to a theocracy or start one of your own!

He does?

If you and your fellow gays think the world wide web is just a filthy lavatory wall to post obscene messages to others, it explains why you and I so differently express concepts like love and respect.

Buttercup, look around. When was the last time you've run into anyone around here that you knew had even the remotest of influence in the world outside this one? Have you ever? The only ones reading this are us.

That's pretty naive or arrogant, considering you have been repeatedly exposed as a liar.

At most you'd be happy and content that people laugh AT you.

Haven't you read the book? <quoted text>Too bad that God was actually ticked at Roman Christians engaging in idolatry and dumping them off at the all gay orgy was just his way of telling the straight folk that they done wrong. You obviously haven't read the book for yourself, or you would know this. Sure if you take this one verse out of its intended context it sounds like God hates homosexual acts, but HE GAVE THEM OVER TO THEM DEAR. <quoted text>So you pray, but not all Christians agree with you on that. They may not meet your standards for being Christian, but you aren't God. It's His call, not His Christians. <quoted text>In the oldest known copies of Paul's work, he does not use words which his readers would know as meaning same sex sex acts or those who engage in them. His "abusers of themselves with mankind" read to them as a man with a bed. Early Christians taught it as a warning not to play with yourself. He also said "soft", not "effeminate". Thanks for trying though. You can still pray that God hates homosexuality if you want, but don't for a moment imagine that the Bible supports you as much as you pray it does.
Romans 1:26-27 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. next you will explain these verse away!!!

<quoted text>Can you explain why you believe God has separate moral behavioral standards for gay people and straight people? One would think that a behavior that is healthy, moral, and good for straight people would be the same for gay folks.
The Bible can explain it a lot better than I can.
